I’m delighted to welcome Dan Zandt from Stillmind today.
Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart. ~ Rumi
The word “spirituality” is banded about a lot these days. To be called a “spiritual person” is a compliment. Bookstores have dedicated sections, usually next to the one labelled “New Age.” We talk about spiritual paths, disciplines and teachings without a second thought.
Yet do we really have a clear idea of what the word means?
In his book Seeking Spirituality, Ron Rolheiser writes that human nature is marked by a “fundamental dis-ease, an unquenchable fire that renders us incapable, in this life, of ever coming to full peace.”
We can, I think, see this truth wherever we look.
