Are You Spiritual?

Updated: Jan 10, 2020


This is a question I get asked a lot.

It’s always a difficult one for me to answer, because it largely depends on what you mean by spiritual?

I’m very careful with how I approach my spiritual life, I don’t talk about it often, nor do I pretend that I have all the answers.

I also never deny it when asked, nor am I afraid to articulate my thoughts for as far as my limited capacity and understanding would allow it.

I’m always trying to enrich both my experience and my understanding.

I subscribe to the belief that spirituality is not something you preach or merely just talk about; but it’s something that is lived.

It should be manifested in all I do, in my interactions with people, my relationships, my work – it’s the axis in which my whole life should revolve.

So in that sense, the answer to that question should be visible to you by how I try and live my life and not by anything I tell you.

My life is by no means perfect; I’m certainly not perfect. But I embrace my brokenness, as it is a large part of what makes me human.

I do believe, that I, along with all of humanity and indeed the whole world, are all created – so in that sense, we are part of the one creation.

I believe in human biology, but also that we transcend it.
