One’s spiritual life is all the ways we incorporate our spiritual beliefs into our life decisions and lifestyle choices. It is the summation of how we respond to a calling from within, a calling that can be considered divine, supernatural, or merely a universal consciousness. Its general purpose is to connect mind, body, soul, and spirit, and to bring unity to our lives. Most orient their spiritual life to pursuing a more enlightened version of themselves, focusing on ideas and practices that help them find meaning, connection, purpose, and ultimate truths in our human existence. A healthy spiritual life encourages us to explore and adopt our own unique frameworks that can provide comfort and growth, meaningful challenge, and inner peace.
