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.
