Spirituality Defined: Spirituality is the discipline that is practiced for achieving spiritual purification and enlightenment for the sole purpose of gaining cognizance of the Supreme Being.
Purpose of Spirituality: True Spirituality is the pursuit of God. Most of the versions of so called spirituality available in the market today are just products that you are expected to buy. They are not genuine and they don’t work. They may relax your mind or body to some extent (although I have my doubts about that), but they do nothing for the spirit. The spirit is energized when your only purpose is to find the Absolute Reality.
Spirituality Definition Explained: Spirituality presumes that a person is a combination of body and spirit. Certain exercises and meditations are prescribed to the seeker, which he or she can practice and awaken the spirit within him or her. In Sufi spirituality, the sole purpose of the seeker is to recognize and feel the Supreme Being – God or Allah. No other conditions are prescribed, such as change in belief or appearance. When the seeker practices the techniques, he or she intrinsically moves closer to the Truth, without anyone having to tell him or her anything.
What True Spirituality Can Do for You: Sincerity of purpose is necessary and the simple exercise has to be practiced daily for it to work. True spirituality does not aim at worldly gains, although everything follows when you get connected with the Eternal and Supreme Power. Allah is the Cause of all causes and once you strive to link with that Supreme Being, secrets of the world unravel themselves before you. True spirituality brings peace and contentment in this world, and eternal happiness in the next.
Practicing Spirituality: Spirituality is not about definitions and explanations. True spirituality is a practice that you have to practically do in order to achieve results. Practicing Sufi spirituality is very simple. There is basically a straightforward breathing exercise that you practice twice a day to awaken your spirit. Once your spirit is rejuvenated, you don’t only feel a deep sense of satisfaction, but also begin to see that there is really a Supreme Power, God, Allah. By continuing to practice your spirituality, your spirit continues to grow, gaining spiritual powers and becoming one with the Ultimate Unity.
