Know What is Spiritual Approach and Importance Of Spiritual Approach

The spiritual approach 

As the world is changing fast, human beings are under too much pressure, both on the personal and the professional front. 

Our bodies and minds can tolerate this stress only to a certain extent. After that, it becomes unbearable. 

In order to find peace, we have to search within ourselves.
Spiritual Approach

Being getting rid of illusions and making yourself being awake is so called spirituality. It is never being at the mercy of any event, thing or person. Spirituality is to retreat stress or grief thus finding your inner peace at any stage of life. Hence by developing spirituality you find a sanctuary within yourself.

Religion is intended only to lead you there. 

Feelings of materialism are not natural. They do not lead to happiness, only to fleeting excitement and lasting emptiness and anxiety. Besides, we are constantly affected by what others think about us. Consider your own life. Is there even a single day when you are not consciously or unconsciously oriented towards what others think, feel or say about you? Your steps are controlled and you march to their drumbeat.

However, think about what you feel when you are in contact with Nature, looking at the sunset or the stars, the sky, the moon or gazing at the sea sitting on the beach or observing the changing color of leaves in autumn or looking at the clouds and the elusive rainbow in the sky or the beautiful rows of snow-clad mountains. 

Compare all this with your feelings when you are appreciated, applauded or praised. The first kind of feelings are of the soul the self that leads us to true happiness, which we call ecstasy, "Anand". The second kind of feelings are of the world, of pleasure and enjoyment. 

Is there any comparison between the sheer joy and intensity of the feelings aroused by Nature and those aroused by other people?

The importance of spiritual development 

Slaves of tradition have no thirst for knowledge. They behave as if they have attained the truth. For them, the ideal truth does not exist. They have no use for spiritual exertion or sadhana, because there remains nothing more for them to achieve. Only those who believe that what they know is only limited feel the need for sadhana. 

Advocates of religion often suffer from dogmatism. They may agree that what they know is not the absolute truth, but they insist on believing that what others believe is absolutely wrong! 

The clash of sects is the result of this dogmatism. Sects embody traditions. The ideas of the head of a sect come to be accepted as the philosophy of the sect, which in the course of time becomes a traditional philosophy of life.

All sects and traditions embody only a part of the truth. Some sects and traditions are nearer the truth compared to others.

Absolute truth can be attained only in a state of self-realization. Every sect has its philosophy of life.

 Followers of these sects are, however, not all seekers of the truth. Unfortunately, the search for the truth has almost ceased and this can be inferred from the mentality prevailing in most sects.
Spiritual Approach 

Many sects are not prepared to think of reinterpreting the Scriptures according to the needs of the times. But no man-made rule can be perfect: only that which is natural does not change. 

No tradition can claim independence of time, place and circumstances. We have to reconnect tradition with the search for the truth. The truth can be attained only through the awakening of consciousness. Spiritual experiences make our attitudes flexible. 

Spiritual development will logically result in the harmony and unity of sects
