When someone says "health", what comes to mind? I bet that a lot of people only think of health in terms of the physical body. The truth is, health is not just physical. You are not just physical. You are composed of mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, health is not only physical, but mental, and spiritual as well.
Your physical self is a reflection of your inner self. When you feel good inside, you are radiant and undeniably looking great outside. The beauty is not just physical anymore. There is this radiating energy from you that attracts people toward you.
When you eat healthy, it is very easy to be mentally focused, and when your mental state is stable, it is very easy to be spiritually balanced. It can also go the other way around. Spiritually clear inside, you feel inner peace and calm, which allows you to achieve a balanced mental state, and you end up eating just right.
In other words, To be healthy means to be healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
- Religion is an institution established by man for various reasons. Exert control, instill morality, stroke egos, or whatever it does. Organized, structured religions all but remove god from the equation. You confess your sins to a clergy member, go to elaborate churches to worship, told what to pray and when to pray it. All those factors remove you from god.
- Spirituality is born in a person and develops in the person. It may be kick started by a religion, or it may be kick started by a revelation. Spirituality extends to all facets of a person’s life. Spirituality is chosen while religion is often times forced. Being spiritual to me is more important and better than being religious.
- True spirituality is something that is found deep within oneself. It is your way of loving, accepting and relating to the world and people around you. It cannot be found in a church or by believing in a certain way.
