“One of the most spiritual things you can do
is embrace your humanity.”

“All spiritual practice is the art of shifting perspectives.”

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

There is a branch of science called neurotheology. According to an article in Psychiatric Times, “Neurotheologians argue that the structure and function of the human brain predispose us to believe in God.” In fact, neurotheological research has shown that the brain behaves in a unique way, with both sides of the brain interacting with each other, when someone is having a spiritual experience.

Today’s Journal Exercise:

Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, you are bound to agree that having a relationship with the Divine can exist (unless you’re an atheist, of course). What I’ve found in my personal research and experience is that a relationship with the Divine is not only important, but is key to finding peace, happiness and fulfillment in life. Your assignment today is to journal about what that means to you.

How do you experience a relationship to the Divine in your life? Do you attend church or temple? Do you meditate? Do you spend time out in nature? All of the above? Something else? Write about the activities you can do that will help you cultivate a relationship with the Divine. And then make a commitment to do something every week, if not every day, to nurture that relationship.
