Definition of Spirituality
Hello hello hello. What is spirituality and what are the main types of spirituality? First of all let me say this – spirituality is something that means you want to transform yourself. Spiritually means you want to become something different to what you are now.
Now the thing about the types of spirituality is this – it’s not always the same thing. What is spiritual for one person is not spiritual for another and what is spiritual for a particular type of group may not be spiritual for another group.
So that being said let’s give a very broad definition of what it means to be a spiritual person: A spiritual person is someone who wants to grow, someone who wants to let go of the less than happy emotions. Now if that’s what a spiritual person is then anyone who’s trying to improve themselves in anyway is spiritual, but there’s one caveat I have to put in here, it is this: Spirituality means you’re looking for something higher than just physical reality.
What is A Spiritual Path?
Ok so now understand this – spiritual, it means more than just physical changes, but something deeper than that. So a real spiritual path involves transformation, involves release of negativity and it and it also involves a higher awareness. All these things must come together if you are on a genuine true spiritual path.
Types of Spirituality
So that being said let’s talk about some of the different types of spirituality that exist. Some spiritual beliefs believe in just doing the right thing, like helping others, giving aid to the needy. That is one type of spiritual path but that is not the only spiritual path, but there are also other ways to do things such as some people believe that you need to go inward, you need to search inside yourself and examine the depths of your mind to become a truly spiritual being, that is also another type.
Going Against The Grain – Is It Spiritual?
But there are other different types of spirituality, for example some people who are spiritual believe that you must do things that outside the norm, for example change your behaviour, change your way of thinking so that you are more enlightened and what does that mean to be more enlightened? That’s a good question, these people who think you have to be different, they think to be more enlightened means just being different to the normal, as long as you’re different to the normal then you’re more enlightened.
But I would like to say this just being different to what you define normal does not make you spiritual or enlightened either, an enlightened being may act exactly like a normal person except that they would do everything they did with gentleness and with concern and with genuine heartfelt warmth. That could be one way to tell if someone is enlightened, but enlightened beings could also do some very out there behaviour, some very crazy kind of behaviour in certain conditions and make people think they’re something completely different to the normal, that’s true but it doesn’t mean that just because you act differently you are spiritual or enlightened.
Good, now that’s the main thing I wanted to get across – that being spiritual can be many different things and not everyone has to follow the same path. There are many different paths to getting the result and what is the result? The result is to change the way you think, to change the way you feel, and to change the very basis of your mind, the very basis of your mind, that is what a genuine spiritual teacher will teach you.
Ok so this is been a little discussion on spirituality and the types of spirituality and there are more than we could imagine.
