13 August : Spirituality does not restrict itself to so-called spiritual exercises – meditation or prayer, for example. Actually, any day-to-day activity can be made spiritual if we know how to introduce a divine element. And conversely, if prayer, meditation or any other so-called spiritual activity is not enlivened and sustained by a sublime idea, a higher ideal, it too can become extremely prosaic.
Spirituality does not consist in neglecting or scorning the material world but in always striving to act with the light and for the light. Spiritualy is about knowing how to use any activity – even the most ordinary, the most prosaic – to elevate ourselves, bring ourselves into harmony and connect with the divine world.
