Good question! Spirituality is all that is, and could be.
Reality is just a sub-set of spirituality. One of the many ways it could be. So there is no duality between spirituality and daily life. Daily life is part of spirituality, but there is more to spirituality then daily life.

Eheh. The roots have to come to the surface, one way (by conscious choice) or by the other (necessity)

Traveling is the best education one can get! At least in my own experience. It is an eye-opener.
Congrats for the awesome blog!!!April 3, 2013 at 10:21 am #30229
So true! What I often noticed is that I may be reading, into someone’s actions, what I want to read. Now, I ask, or at least try 🙂 to, questions so I can clarify to myself what is going on.
There is no rush to get angry 🙂 If I have to show that I am satisfied with a situation etc. at least I want to make sure I do it with more information then my initial impressions.

Thank you Mike for your open sharing! That’s so true!
While I am not searching for rejections, I noticed I am sometimes searching for challenging situations. I prefer goals which are outside my “comfort zone”. I guess balancing challenging situations with just taking the low-hanging fruits is one of the steps we need to take to grow 🙂

So true Omar! Values are the inspiration, and our purposes how we manifest it in this life.
Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much for the open, honest and inspiring sharing!!!
What is happiness for me? Good question, thanks for asking 🙂 Happiness is mainly an attitude. As you mentioned, it includes being at least OK with what it is. Often, appreciating what it is, its variety and richness. And sometimes, actively embracing it.
Some life events may be very hard on us, some may be very uplifting. TinyBuddha offers many examples of awesome strategies and approaches to cope with the downturns, and make the best of the best moments in our lives. At the end of the day, our joyful attitude – while does not necessarily determines all the events we live – is what influences how we live them.
I look forward for other awesome TB members to share!!! Thank you in advance,
