Spiritual Lesson: Pursue to Soothe Your Spirit

You cannot soothe your soul if you don’t understand the essence of spiritual enlightenment. It’s about going deeper than what people see on the surface – Sue Faith

Spirit- Sue Faith levy

In life we are always so attracted to the material things. We want more money, we want to wear the latest fashion, we brag with our new bags and jewelry, and we search for happiness in the things that are not going to matter once we die and get buried metres under the ground. We need to wake up and realise that life is not all about having most of the materialistic possessions.

A good example is a guy that gave away his Audi R8 in Cape Town.  Very soon after this gesture made headline news, he sadly commited suicide by jumping off Table Mountain almost a year to the day he gave away his 1.4 million rand super car. In this sad case I had to ask myself ” He couldn’t have been happy and spiritual happy to have taken his life which was obviously blessed on a material level? “which also made me understand that you can be rich, but if you are not rich in spirit and balanced from within, those material possessions mean nothing.

I know that the heading is about encouraging you with quotes to soothe your soul. Yet you cannot soothe your soul if you don’t understand the essence of spiritual enlightenment. It’s about going deeper than what people see on the surface.

The question I want to know and what you should ask yourself is: Am I spiritually balanced. Do I feel good inside?

If you feel the need to feel spiritualy fulfilled, here are some quotes to encourage you on a spiritual level

  • We are either the masters or the victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice. Who we are today is the result of choices we made yesterday. Tomorrow, we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose to change. -John Maxwell
  • Every hardship; every joy; every temptation is a challenge of the spirit; that the human soul may prove itself.  The great chain of necessity wherewith we are bound has divine significance; and nothing happens which has not some service in working out the sublime destiny of the human soul.  Elias A. Ford
  • Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose.  There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from.  Elizabeth Kübler-Ross
  • Big-heartedness is the most essential virtue on the spiritual journey.  Matthew Fox
  • Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.  Saint Francis de Sales
  • Inner peace is found by facing life squarely, solving its problems, and delving as far beneath its surface as possible to discover its verities and realities.  Peace Pilgrim

I hope that we all pursue a life where we feel good inside. That we start to find a balance that reflects our happiness on the inside and outside.

Sincerely Sue
