Making use of every possible activity to link in to the light

August 13th 2012
Spirituality does not restrict itself to so-called spiritual exercises – meditation or prayer, for example. Actually, any day-to-day activity can be made spiritual if we know how to introduce a divine element. And conversely, if prayer, meditation or any other so-called spiritual activity is not enlivened and sustained by a sublime idea, a higher ideal, it too can become extremely prosaic. Spirituality is not about neglecting or scorning the material world but about constantly striving to act with the light and for the light. As long as we do this, even the most ordinary activity can serve to elevate us, to bring us into harmony and put us in touch with the divine world.
