A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all women, men and children.

We are biologically, cognitively, physically and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong.

- Brene Brown
Yes!
Spirituality is
1. An awareness that the universe contains
something bigger
than us

2. An awareness that that
something
is not completely knowable by rational means.

3. A sense of
connection
with that
something
.
What does it take?
If you can
start
the day without caffeine,

If you can
relax
without liquor,

If you can
sleep
without the aid of drugs,

If you can be
cheerful
, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can
eat
the same food everyday and be grateful for it,

If you can

If you can
take criticism

face the world
without lies and deceit,

Spiritual
Practice
