While some people cruise through life without ever giving their spirit a second thought, the search for the meaning of life and death is a desire that some of us just can’t ignore. The process of soul searching can be a long road for some people. It can be confusing, difficult, ambiguous and very often unpredictable. But it can also be the most enlightening and rewarding experience. Finding and connecting with our own spirituality can be life changing in so many ways.
Searching for your Spiritual Path
Whether it’s an easy or difficult journey, I’m sure we all have one thing in common – we yearn to satisfy our curiosity about the spirit and our universe. Some of us will be forever curious about the mysteries of life and will spend an eternity searching for something we may never find.
We all seek different answers and explanations. What might satisfy the curiosity of one person, may not necessarily satisfy the next. There are many beliefs and ancient myths about spirituality and life & death. What we need is to be open minded about these beliefs in order to find what resonates with us. Learn from each other’s experiences and follow your own heart because it’s your spirit and your journey.

We’re all allowed to feel gloomy or sad every now and then, regardless of what season it is, but do you find yourself struggling on a daily basis with feelings of sadness and depression as soon as the winter months arrive? Would you rather sleep than make love, only to lie awake half the night feeling anxious about everything and anything? Do you find the long dark evenings depressing?
It is possible that you may be suffering from a condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder, more commonly known as SAD. Other symptoms you may experience with this condition are irritability, mood swings, difficulty getting up in the mornings and a craving for carbohydrates, such as bread and pasta.
