Reclaiming the Sacred
What do you consider most important in your life? What is sacred to you? Something is sacred if it is set apart, highly valued, holy, or worthy of reverence and respect. It may, or may not arise from a religious perspective. But it is always an aspect of your spirituality.
Is there some aspect of your life that holds special meaning to you? Family? Profession, Pet? Nature? Religious practice? HIgher power? Specific person? Relationship? Place? Activity? How do you discover or discern your own sense of the sacred? Does the sacred affect how you live, love, work, or play?
Whatever the sacred is for you, it possesses a special meaning and value. If you live in relationship to the sacred, mindfully, then each action of your life is endowed with deeper meaning and integrity; which is energizing and leads to wholeheartedness, happiness and fulfillment.
