We are living in a deeply troubled world and people are seeking meaning to it all and their purpose in it as well. People are seeking answers to our worldly problems.
Many things come to mind when one thinks of Spirituality: Higher consciousness, Faith, Transcendence, Self-reliance, Self-efficacy, Mysticism, Self-realization, Self-actualization, Community, Enlightenment, The Divine, Love, and many others.
Spirituality has different meanings to different people. Without the semantics, for the sake of Step Onto My Mat Wellness mission, Spirituality is for people to get in touch with their spiritual side through private prayer, yoga, meditation, quiet reflection, or even long walks. For these purposes it is seen as a personal transformation. Spirituality is not the same thing as religion, it is inclusive, not exclusive, experiential, not just theoretical, it is knowing you are part of something much bigger than yourself, and the recognition of the Divine, whatever that means to you!
The path that one may chose may be different than that of another. Great yoga Swami, Sri Swami Satchidananda, said “Truth is One, Paths are Many”.
Step Onto My Mat Wellness hopes to help you find Spiritual Wellness by giving you to the tools to help you personally find the values and beliefs that provide a purpose to your life.
Keeping in mind how your relationships, physical activity, career, and spirituality affects your overall wellness we promote yoga and meditation along with a healthy diet and physical fitness to create all over wellness to live stress free and happy lives.
“Growth of the soul is our goal, and there are many ways to encourage that growth, such as through love, nature, healing our wounds, forgiveness, and service. The soul grows well when giving and receiving love.”
“We are at this moment participating in one of the very greatest leaps of the human spirit—to a knowledge not only of outside nature, but also our own deep inward mystery—the greatest leap ever.”
“Why did the ancients cherish the Tao?
Because through it, we may find a world of peace, leaving behind a world of cares, and hold the greatest treasure under heaven.”
