What is Spiritual Fitness?
Spiritual Fitness is the ultimate connection with your body. Being active is far more then just physical exercise. Being active is only a small part of what fitness truly means.
One of the reasons that most people do not stick to a fitness program is that they do not value a true intimate connection with themselves. They view exercise as obtaining a goal rather then obtaining an inner connection with who they really are.
Yes having a fitness goal is very important, but it really is a superficial way of viewing fitness. Have you experienced setting a goal (fitness or other) and then obtaining the goal and saying to yourself "Is this all there Is?"
I know I have been there. Its a pretty scary place to be. I remember early on in my fitness career I set a specific goal to be a certain weight, and when I got there I still was not happy!
Being spiritually fit, is viewing fitness from a different angel. That angle is that every time you are exercising or working out you are connecting with yourself. You are feeding your spirit.
Getting in touch with that deep place is scary for a lot of people. Many people live from the neck up, meaning they have disconnected their minds from their bodies. They have forgotten how to actually get in touch with their spiritual side.
Now I know your reading this and thinking "You have lost it Trevor!" But what I am saying has so much relevance that once you tap into this side of fitness you will become addicted! Truly addicted, because every time you work out you actually be spending time with you! You will be nurturing your body and developing from the inside out, rather from the outside in!
Its a big hurdle to leap over, but once you get there it is amazing. Many many times I have felt actually high from working out and I have a feeling of being on cloud nine. Connection with yourself is so important!
I hope you can find that connection with yourself through fitness, it is a great place to be!
Till next time!
