To say the spiritual affects them is not to say that one must believe in God or a higher power. It does mean that if one is not regularly coming into contact with something bigger than themselves it will negatively affect their overall health. All one needs to do is to walk outside at night and look up at the stars and consider the vastness of the universe, or visit a beach and observe the vastness of the ocean, or pick up a globe and reflect on how we’re but a small speck in the larger picture. There will be a sense of wonder. That is spiritual.
Conversely, if one is not attuned to what is going on within one’s self, there will be no physical, emotional and mental congruity. All of these components are interconnected. I challenge us this week to take a more holistic approach to life. Seek to harmonize all of these aspects to produce one whole, healthy self.
