F4Thought #142 - Spirituality

 #F4Thought #142 - Spirituality ~ In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life.

Last week the posts all about initiative really made think. Certainly, in hard times it is so important we use our initiative to be resourceful even if the way we are living has changed.

Spotlight Post #141 by May More

The posts were quite varied and I enjoyed reading them all. One that really stood out for me was - The initiatives of #noEroticon - by Marie Rebel. The yearly Erotic conference – Eroticon – was cancelled due to concerns about the virus. However for those with long journeys the news came too late and they arrived in Camden. What to do? They showed initiative and put on a mini conference where a few of them delivered their speeches/workshops as normal. Over to the post...

“On Friday evening I learned that we would have a mini conference — a #noEroticon of you like — where Haiku and Anna Sky would deliver their sessions, and Eye invited me to do mine too. I only had to think about it for a minute, and said yes, I would be there. I loved this initiative of Eye, and definitely wanted to be part of it, especially as I have seen the disappointment around me of people who only heard on Friday that the conference was cancelled.”    READ MORE...

Prompt #142 Spirituality 

This weeks prompt was once again suggested by Liz Black. Floss and I feel it is rather timely given current global events.

The meaning of the term Spirituality has changed over time but i think this definition - I found on line - works quite well.

Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience, something that touches us all. 

Personally, I think it is a very individual idea which can differ widely from person to person. So, we want to know what spirituality means to you. Here are a few questions to get you thinking...

Do you believe in God or are you religious at all?

Has your view of spirituality changed over the years?

Is spirituality linked to your mental & physical well being?

In times of need do you have faith? What does that entail?

I asked Floss... Do you blaspheme or is that step too far for you?

Floss says … I do blaspheme, but not with malicious intent and I don’t mean to cause any disrespect. With that in mind I would be mindful of blaspheming in front of people who I knew were actively involved in their religion. I think religion can be a wonderful thing for some folks & I myself have found comfort in bible verses before and I’m a big fan of Jesus. Blaspheming is really just a bad habit, one that is reinforced by not really knowing anyone in real life who finds it offensive when they hear me do it.
