Spirituality is how we channel our desires and shape our actions, it is what gives us the energy and moves us into the world in a way that is meaningful and authentic. Spirituality animates, sustains and gives purpose and direction to the longing to be connected to ourselves, to others, to the earth, to God however s/he is understood.
“The true miracle is not walking on water or walking in air, but simply walking on this earth.” Thich Nhat Hanh

THE GIFT OF THE CROSS
Suffering and The Truer Self
God does not send us suffering; or even desire it. But often it is in suffering that we, and our directees, find a deeper confidence and trust in God. Is this a kind of death and resurrection? By reflecting on our own experience, what we need in times of suffering and difficulty, we can find both inspiration and courage to be with others in theirs.
