ATTAINING SPIRITUALITY- IS IT A CHALLENGE OR A SOLUTION TO EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT?
In a society rife with discrimination and inequality in terms of caste, class, gender, race and perspective, it is indeed a challenge to survive and stand out amidst the crowd..
However, it is also a pre-requisite to be understanding and generous towards every being, instead of expressing anger and resistance, at times.
Being kind and forgiveful not only provides inner peace to others, but also helps one to attain peace and lead a blissful life!
Letting go of one’s anger and emotional stoicism helps one to heal from any treacherous situation and acts as emotional first aid kit to the trauma and emotional infection caused by others’ reaction.. That is the leading gateway towards spirituality..
Being spiritual not only means chanting mantras to worship God.. It also signifies being less bothered about the society and its judgement, being self-critical and improving oneself to be better than the former self.. That is when transcendentalism along with complete tranquillity can be acquired!!
Though human beings are the most unpredictable and dissatisfied beings on earth, yet if one attains the spirit of ‘Forgiveness and Break free from most emotions’, then only one can be spiritual with a sound ‘social health’!
