Spiritual Fitness – it’s a soulful thing
What does your energy reflect?
Nutrition, exercise, attitudes, motivation, time and space are all about energy. The level or depth of your energy at any given time is reflected in your outward persona. However, it is virtually impossible to make lifestyle changes without addressing your soulful energy.
I am not talking about losing weight and starting an exercise program. This is not about a formulized program, but rather a journey that involves balancing the energy of the body, the mind and the soul.
The Buddha said that once one gets onto the path of enlightenment, one cannot help but live a healthy life. Spiritual enlightenment brings with it a reverence for all of life, but especially an appreciation of the self.
It does not mean that we will not be tempted or never encounter another challenge or obstacle. It simply is a way of life where our responses to situations change. We view the world from a different perspective, and this perspective assist us in seeing things not as they appear to be, but as they really are.
