What Do I Mean By Spiritual Strength?
For me personally spiritual strength is the ability to generate and withstand large amounts of energy/emotions.
If you look into the different methods or paths to enlightenment they are all about either calming the mind or concentrating on the body, which in turn has a calming effect on the mind.
We live in a head oriented society where thought is all important. It is no accident that many people now want to go in reverse and, like I said, calm the mind and energize the body.
The intellect tends to kill emotion, it can make someone rational and unfeeling.
It’s obvious that if you want to be an entrepreneur you need energy (lots of it) that can drive you forward and push you to achieve and create great things.
Here are some observations from limited personal experience:
Combine Mind Calming Technique With Body Work:
I am by no means a spirituality advanced person or anything. And I haven’t unlocked the vast reservoirs of creative-energy lying dormant within me.
But what I can say is that if I go even a day without meditating and doing yoga/stretching type exercises, I feel terribly anxious and nervous throughout the day.
If you do one of these things it’s great, if you do both the results will be mind-blowing. I sleep better, think faster, I don’t over think things as much anymore and I just feel more at peace in general.
I don’t concentrate on positive thinking or positive images or anything like that what I care about is feeling more.
That’s what counts. Don’t pray for an easy life but pray for the strength to endure a tough one.
A tough life for me is a life that generates a lot of emotion through hardships.
What I realized is that the spiritual masters like the Buddha aren’t above emotion, they feel things 10 times more than regular people but they are able to let this energy live inside them.
In other words, they are an effective vehicle for this creative energy—as I like to call it—to exist without becoming a victim of this energy.
To understand my philosophy and the goal of this site go read my article “be the creative force you were meant to be“. Spiritual strength is the 3rd layer to activate your creative force and become someone who makes things happen, become an entrepreneur.
