Since the human body is constituted of matter, human beings hava a physical dimension; but they also have a mental, emotional and spiritual dimension. In order to realize what they are and to experience their full potential, they need to develop all four dimensions.These four aspects of being human may be compared to the four tyres on a car. If one of the tyre is flat, the car does not function properly. Most of the people dedicate a lot of time and energy to developing their physical, mental and emotional nature. Often they develop one at the cost of the other two. But very few people have any inkling of their great spiritual potential. In fact, many have no idea this exist at all. Consequently, their life lacks balance just like the car with a flat tyre.
The secret to a meaningful and harmonious life is to develop this spiritual dimension.
But to do this we need to reorient ourselves. This new orientation towards spirituality will give us a new perspective, the spiritual perspective. It will affect the way we respond to the world. It will help us redefine the way we approach daily life, redefine our values and priorities; and by doing so, it will provide us with truer picture of who and what we are.
The secret to a happy, carefree and fulfilled life is to make spiritual growth our first priority.
