Spirituality Vs Blogging (Not A Heavy Stuff !!!)


Spirituality  is a belief which enables a person to rise above the materialistic sense of his existence and helps him discover the real self or the real meaning of his life. It is ushering your thoughts and your deeds towards a path where you can find answers for your precarious dilemmas, generate a bundle of positivity and look beyond the reasoning of this mortal subsistence.

Just one question – why does a person has to know spirituality only after he feels too confused in life ? I mean why spirituality is tagged with some “journey” notion where you would find answers, whatever they are. I find it difficult to comprehend as to why there are so many questions related to your initiation into spirituality – who I am, what is my worth, why do I exist, why things happen, where is this going to end etc.

We as human beings are not perfect. But the spirit or the energy which is the core of our existence is just perfect. We get corrupted with our understanding of this world and the worldly tactics that are required to survive.

The beginning is always from 100% for us – emotionally, factually and conscience wise. This percentage keeps on deteriorating as we gain our consciousness about the efforts required to live and live meaningfully. Spirituality is not just a tool to understand the universe and the emotions, but it is realizing that the power of spirituality is what we are born with. It is embedded in our cell structure. Still, we end up requiring a certain “spiritual guide” to help us understand it.

Blogging is one of the best canvases on which the meanings of spirituality could be effectively portrayed. I know, many of you wonderful bloggers have already found this one out ! (So, why not just help me defining it a little bit better !!)

Certain phases of blogging and their respective sense in accordance with spirituality could be seen as :

1.            The Thinking Phase :          This is like pushing yourself, cautiously or vigorously, into a state of trance where you get this urge to personify your thoughts in ink. These thoughts need to be carefully blended as they reflect the conscience of the author. Like in spirituality, this stage will let you see inside your sensibility and power of the mind.

2.            The Writing Phase :          One of the most difficult part for any writer is to do justice with what he thinks by choosing the right set of words and rhymes. Whether a point wished to be conveyed was conveyed or not would rely solely on the sense you make out of your words. Like in spirituality, it depicts finding the correct meaning of your existence in this impatient world.

3.            The Completion Phase :          I like to call this one the “self critique” phase. It happens so much with us that once a piece is complete; we end up inside a void. We feel that perhaps this is not as good as it was supposed to be. We would be concerned if it actually deserves an audience. Like in spirituality, there is this constant need to evolve to avoid being in a state of parallel or stalemate. One must respect his true self and grow beyond it.

For me, blogging has been both the apparatus and the medium required to know the power of the spirit that lies within. What we all bloggers are trying here is to work in our own spaces and times to create an aura of positivity and sincerely progress towards a better understanding of the human existence.

Our words are the doors that lead us into this magnificent world of harmony, respect and equality.

This is what spirituality is all about, isn’t it !

    Spirituality is not just looking for answers when you’re confused or hunting a path when you’re lost.
    For me personally, its more about awareness.

    We, as human beings, tend to lose out on our awareness. We let things happen, we go with the flow. Nothing wrong with that, but beyond a point we lose our sense of awareness.
    Then comes a moment when you realise that you’ve been just alive. And not living.

    The emotional uplifting that happens after that, the growing up; is what i call spirituality!

      Plus, there is nothing more beautiful than making your own questions, and then hunting the answers down.
      I could do that over and over!

      😀

      • August 5, 2012 at 10:06 pm

        Bad habit 🙂 !!

      • August 5, 2012 at 10:07 pm

        Yeah? Questions are so beautiful. Answers, corrupt.

        🙂

    • August 5, 2012 at 10:01 pm

      Still, people get it all confused with religion and Yoga !
      🙂

      • August 5, 2012 at 10:05 pm

        Oh thats the funny bit, yeah.
        Mixing up religion, spirituality, God and yoga. And creating a complex, hybrid combination of something that is beyond recognition and not close to any of these!

        😛

      • August 5, 2012 at 10:07 pm

        The “USP” is – this hybrid sells !

      • August 5, 2012 at 10:14 pm

        It operates in a circle, you see?
        Mix up everything, and there is a greater need for spirituality!
        🙂

    The three steps…oh yes! Haha, everytime I get done writing something and then hit publish I think – it’s not finished, I could have said that better…etc. Loved this and your eloquence friend! Hugs! 🙂

    Spirituality has always been the need of each and every body, I had a small post on it, and I got many comments on it, made me understand that there are many people out there who need spiritual touch ups now and then, we have many questions regarding life. So I created a new blog on spirituality, I think it is the need of the hour, you can also visit the page and give me any recommendations, http://csd4.wordpress.com/

    Well, I shall not attempt to define, nor, give my two-pence of thought, but, everything that I want to say is in these two lines:

    O, tongue, you are an endless disease,
    O, tongue, you are also an endless treasure.
    (mathnavi by Rumi)

    Hmm…how’s that for my pence, sense or nonsense? :p
    Keep penning, Prashant ! Cheers.

      I wish I had read at least half of your treasured guides of bliss. 😉
      Thank you so much

    Yeah! I can see the connection between spirituality and blogging. And the three phases of blogging that you mentioned seemed familiar to me. Enjoyed your post and more than that I enjoyed the talks of spirituality in the comments 😀

      Hey Genius Varun.

      Looking forward for more of these inspiring comments from you in future !
      These fuel the ambition of any blogger !!!

    This is a very absorbing post. I agree that just before publishing a post…there are lots of doubts in mind…..like- It’s not good enough, i could have done better, no one will want to read this..perhaps it’s boring. We become more self-analytical and our best critics. Perhaps it is indeed a journey to finding ourselves and a part of the spiritual process.
    The sad part is….(here i am speaking for myself)…while writing down things in a diary..poems or thoughts…i never edited or re-analysed my writing. It came with a flow and i didn’t care how it turned out. With blogging one gets conscious of oneself and a part of the originality is lost.

      Hi Suraiya ! (hope got it right !)
      Thank you so much for dropping by !

      Yes, blogging is a very graceful and honest art. But the thing is that we start with expressing ourselves and somehow, we end up wanting to be read instead.

      The passion of writing is taken over by the obsession of incr stats. Not good !

      It is so good to know that originality and honesty is still secure at least in your space !

      Happy Blogging !

      • August 15, 2012 at 12:57 am

        You got my name exactly right. So, no worries!
        “Wanting to be read”….you are very right. As humans we crave for appreciation and as artistes that craving is even more….for art is always in search of a patron. But i do believe that the most moving and magnificient things get written when we are aloof devoid of any self-consciousness.

        Thankyou for bestowing my blog the honour of “originality and honesty”…..not sure if i am worth it. Most humbled though/

        Happy blogging to you too!
