During a talk I gave about my book, ´Return to My Soul´, several years ago, someone in the audience said it wasn´t good to be spiritual because it meant that you´d want to go and live in the forest and isolate yourself.
I understand what the person was saying. Many times, I´ve wanted to leave the world behind and go and live in a cottage in a forest surrounded by trees – for the peace and quiet, for the closeness to nature, to be at one with life.
But, ´being spiritual´ doesn´t have to mean living in isolation. It is possible to live in the world as the spiritual beings that we are.
Actually, it is the greatest contribution we can make.
By living from our essence as soul, we bring beauty and peace to the world in a way that is truly powerful.
