Spiritual fitness just like physical fitness requires constant work. You must get up every day and participate. It is more about the journey than the final destination. Spiritual fitness is about experiencing the moments rather than always running against time. The moments then become a sense of elation. We become empowered by the moments.
This does not mean that obstacles will never present themselves or that we will never have to endure challenges. Once on the path of spiritual enlightenment the challenges of life will be more easily met and the obstacles will no longer appear too large. However, we must continue to practice.
An athlete doesn’t stop running because he won the race. He continues to practice so he will be fit to meet the next challenge. This is the way it is with spiritual fitness.
So although we are here to work our body, remember to work at easing your mind and filling your soul with the light of spiritual energy. This is our practice today – to observe the moments and enjoy the fun.
Remember to slow down and appreciate the moments. There is no use in running against time. Spiritual fitness is about being empowered by the moments even if the moments are challenging. You will need to practice balance, flexibility and strength every day. Then use your physical and mental balance, flexibility and strength to make the world a better place and you will discover spiritual fitness.
