A Treasure of Great Spiritual Stories: Spirituality in Everyday Living


A Treasure of Great Spiritual Stories

This collection of spiritual stories and precepts supplement and buttress peoples moral sense, which is our conscience or the spark within that tells us to do good.

Learning spirituality is not simply the domain of sublime philosophy and drama. It lies at the heart of the task of successful everyday behavior, whether it is controlling our tempers, or our appetites, or our inclinations to sit all day in front of the television. As Aristotle pointed out, here our habits make all the difference. We learn to practice our spirituality the same way we learn to do math problems or play baseball well -- through practice.

The benefits of focusing on our spiritual-self include tranquility, increased production, a resurgence of vitality, mental clarity, and joy of living. And the understanding of our spiritual-self will put us on a road to love and happiness irrespective of our faith.

In the legend of Mahabharta, Yudhister could see no evil in any man and Daryodhan could see no virtue in any one. And Buddha was attracted to seek nirvana (spiritual enlightenment) in seclusion rather than being a king. We all have something like this. Truthful and spiritually oriented books help refine the sense of right and wrong. Just look at the fallen towers and religious wars all over the globe to see the need for books like this. The author’s education at Yale University and in the East brings the best of both worlds.

"The language of the head is words.
The language of the heart is love.
The language of the soul is silence."

It looks interesting. Certainly we are too fast paced in our modern world. One thing that things of the spirit require is patience and everyone seems to expect that everything will be sorted out quickly, not to mention in the favor of what they want at the moment. It doesn't work that way. First because what we want might not be what is best for us at a given time and second because even if what we want is what God wants us to have he doesn't give it to us before we are ready for it. I mean a parent wouldn't give their 12 yr old the car keys and an unlimited credit card would they? And likewise God doesn't give us things that we aren't ready for. Get things too soon or too easily and we might fail to appreciate them properly.

I do appreciate your comments. That's what I call "We all have something like this." The spiritual nature that you reflect in your message. Thanks.

It's old thread that I had forgotten. But Crich70 you brought good points. Why statements like above rarely apply today. Is this due to change in society that has become too materialist??
