Chats @ Charli's
Blog # 1
Our first Chat @ Charli’s was held on the 24 of July. It was a cold night that brought with it the potential of wonderful beginnings.
Four beautiful people arrived, each creating a cornerstone to what I hope will become an amazing space for sharing, caring, witnessing and learning.
Our first topic, “What does it mean to be Spiritual?” was an interesting one, that could probably be discussed for many weeks. Maybe this can be revisited from time to time to help us clarify for ourselves what it means to us.
My understanding is that if there is to be a definition, it would be:
Being spiritual is, what is true for me in the relationship my physical aspect has with my non-physical aspect at this moment in time.
For some of us it is a relationship with something outside of ourselves like, a God or an Angel. The beauty of this is that we are all right, because it is our individual interpretation that brings our Spirituality to life. It is what is real for each of us in our own uniqueness. Through our uniqueness we are able to offer each other different perspectives to choose from and to possibly learn from.
Our uniqueness is created by our upbringing, our education, our culture and our life experiences. This becomes a lens through which we view the world and creates the richness of our lives. When we share our opinion with others we offer a rich tapestry of wisdom for each of us to tap into. We can then run through what resinates with us individually and what is real for us in that moment. Or maybe even a moment in the future, when something triggers a memory of that wisdom. This is how we grow.
Thank you to those present for your contribution and your openness, I am grateful.
