Spirituality

Developing one’s spiritual side will fill one’s life day by day. Growing into spirituality is like buying a ticket for a more active social life, being more exposed to opportunities. Spiritual persons are open to new stuff, willing to try and take risks, able to solve different kinds of tasks.

We should never stop learning. The day we stop learning something is the day we stop living beautifully and efficiently. Therefore, let’s continuously assimilate new information, digest and use it to our own advantage, to evolve and simplify our life.

What’s in a moment? Let’s learn together to appreciate life more 🙂

 

 

Take a deep breath and try to find the zest of life:

 

“We have bigger houses but smaller families;
We have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge but less judgements;
more experts but more problems;
more medicines, but less healthiness.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but we have trouble crossing the street
to meet the new neighbour.
We build more computers
to hold more information,
to produce more copies than ever,
but we have less communication.
We have become long on quantity
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods,
but slow digestion;
tall man, but short character;
steep profits, but shallow relationships.
It is time when there is much in the window
but nothing in the room.” Dalai Lama
