The Spiritual Death

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

The great tragedy in life is the death of the human spirit.

That divine spark that you have inside you that brings with it the fullness of everything life has to offer.

The thing that raises you up when you’re down

Strengthens you when you’re weak

Shines a light on your darkness

And keeps you connected and engaged in something beyond yourself.

So many of us put so much emphasis on staying alive, as if life is merely a material pursuit.

Your heart may still be beating, but that doesn’t mean you’re actually living.

The death of the spirit brings with it bitterness and resentment

A warped sense of reality

A distortion and rejection of our very human nature

Often for the pursuit of personal pleasure at the expense of others or even ourselves -

but ultimately it’s the absence of Love.
