Sphere three is the Spirit. The literal definition of the Spirit is:
spir·it (sprt) n.
a. The vital principle or animating force within living beings.
Our spirit is something people neglect without even knowing it. Our spirits are like muscles. It will atrophy if it’s not used.
Spirits should be allowed to flex and expand. As a Christian I pursue a Godly life. This pursuit allows my soul to flex. I take time to appreciate things. To be thankful for what I have. I attribute all that is good to God‘s provision. Not everyone does. I’m not here to brow-beat anyone into allowing God to have a presence in your life. But it is important for your spirit to believe in something. To be inspired to accomplish things.
A good exercise for spiritual development is to have a time of honest introspection. Measure yourself to your past self. See how you stack up. Come to the realization of where you fit in the world.
Where are you?
Where is your head?
Where are your goals?
Spiritual strength can be sought but unless there is honesty it will never be attained. In my case, my pursuit of a Godly life strengthens my spirit each time I don’t take all the credit for my accomplishments. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy my accomplishments…I just attribute the success to God blessing me and giving me a brain that works that allows me to solve problems and expand my spirit.
Philosophy is a touchy subject for most Christians…because they typically write it off as humanistic drivvel. It boils down to attribution. We’ve been endowed with free-will so we are capable of observing and making deductions about our environments and our fellow humans. This ability is a great way to expand a spirit. The more you know about your surroundings, they more complete your spirit will be.
This is a very brief description. I plan on elaborating later, but I wanted to get this down…Thanks for reading.
