The meaning of life is growth, contribution, connection and creativity. When we are on purpose, the voice of intuition lights up. We feel a sense of joy and inspiration and we develop in consciousness. We increase our awareness of our true, loving and spiritual selves.
Some may find that their spiritual life is intimately linked to their association with a church, temple, mosque or synagogue. Others may pray or find comfort in a personal relationship with God or with a higher power. Others seek meaning through their connections with nature or art. Like your sense of purpose, your personal definition of spirituality can change throughout your life, adapting to your own experiences and relationships.
The term zoe corresponds very closely to chayyim, and means the vital principle, the state of someone who is animate, the fullness of activities and the relationship both physically and spiritually. People can describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply as a deep sense of vivacity and interconnectedness. Life in the New Testament, beginning with Jesus, has predominantly metaphysical and spiritual significance, an indestructible quality, which replaces physical death and the grave. Those relationships with God and with Christ in the spiritual realm, and the activities that derive from them and that constitute real and eternal life.
There is a tension, even a conflict, between the current physical existence with its passions and the spiritual life that will continue beyond physical death. In John chapter six, Jesus talked to another group of religious people and explained to them what is required to sustain this spiritual life. Like other reflective practices, mindfulness can be a tool to discover how Spirituality manifests itself in your life. People throughout history have tried to find the meaning of life scientifically, biologically, philosophically and spiritually.
You must change your earthly nature or physical life for the spiritual life offered by God through Christ. But what is spiritual life and what sustains it? Spiritual life is simply the life that is lived in and with God. Entering life and entering the kingdom are practically the same, because the kingdom is that spiritual kingdom where God controls, where the principles, activities and relationships of heaven prevail, and therefore entering them is entering life.
