My definition of a spiritual journey is quite broad. I define it simply as looking and experiencing life outside of you. It means that you need to regain a perspective of life bigger than you. You will begin to lose your sense of self-importance and increase your awareness of the needs of those around you. I think that this step requires a conscious effort to pursue it. It can take an infinite number of forms:
- Quality time with family and friends
- Spiritual organizations
- Good food, wine
- Energizing experiences
- Creative hobbies
- The arts
Any experience that involves active engagement and involves experiencing a perspective bigger than you works. Passive experiences such as watching TV are fine but will not aid you in achieving spiritual growth.
- Consciously choose what form this journey might take and write it down. You should review it on a bi-annual or annual basis.
