Life is tough.
Yes, beautiful and inspirational
But very tough indeed.
To be spiritual is not to disengage from life
So as to maintain a posture above it all.
To be spiritual is to
Engage life all the more.
It is to address the challenges
Of life forthrightly
While retaining our wonder and curiosity.
It is to seek our soul's integrity.
It is to increase our communication.
It is to hear our echoes off the cliffs of life,
And respond to same.
Life is tough,
And the nature of our spirit is to
Engage and be engaged which is,
At one and the same time,
Our greatest joy and our greatest fear.
But, in the doing, we learn of
Our spirit, our Self.
We learn of love.
