What Does a Spiritual Person Look Like?

I would venture a guess that when most people think about or hear someone talk about a “spiritual person” a vision of a guru in white flowing robes leaps to mind. I’ve also experienced some combination of puzzled looks, a change of topic, or some comment about religion when explaining that I’m committed to my spiritual growth.

The truth is that spirituality, being spiritual, or seeking spiritual growth or enlightenment means something different to virtually every single person who might describe themselves or their path in this way. Even people who would characterize their path as actively seeking spiritual growth, or having an active spiritual practice can be on very different paths.

For me, being committed to my spiritual growth means living my most authentic and awake life; being open to the truth, as well as the mysteries, of our earthly lives and opening to the peace and joy that is a constant within us all, despite our best efforts to block and resist it.

I’m not a consistent meditator, at least in the ‘sit on a cushion with eyes closed’ traditional sense. But I do make it a practice to be aware and present in my daily life. I have the good fortune to walk near the beach nearly every day and I use that time to listen to spiritual teachings, as well as open myself to my own inner wisdom. And, I use practical tools like EFT when my brain and emotions get the better of me.

The truth is that we are all spiritual beings living a human life. We need only to pause and be present for very short periods each day to begin to recognize this truth in our own lives. Today, if you can do nothing else to access the knowing and peace of your divine nature, at the very least pause when you can to take three mindful breaths. This small action can make a huge difference in your life.
