Spirituality is the art of living to find inner happiness and joy .This inner happiness will come when we can discover our inner self. It is spirituality that helps us to find this inner reality, which is our inner self. The essence of spirituality is discovering the joy in life. The happiness with the theme of spirituality is an inner happiness that does not depend on success in the material world. Spirituality tells us that real inner joy comes not through the fulfilment of our desires but in reducing our desires.
Spirituality involves living in the present. When we worry about the future, we apprehend problems. When we regret the past, we waste our precious time. It is only by focusing on the present moment that we can practise the essence of spirituality. Peace and harmony only exist in awareness of the present moment. Living in the present moment creates the experience of eternity.
Spirituality says that inner happiness comes from living not for ourselves but living for others. When we only seek to please ourselves, then we can only get a limited happiness, our pleasure will be limited. However through selfless action, through serving others we can go from a limited human perspective to becoming aware of an extended reality.
Surrendering one`s actions to God, the supreme consciousness, existence or whatever name one has for that; one can seek divinity through spirituality.
