Spirit is the unseen force within all people. Spirit is the driving force behind all creation. Spirit is the core of your being that knows everything. It is the energy that propels things into manifestation. It is that voice inside that tells you when things feel right or wrong.
When you are in the quiet of meditation you are bridging the gap between the ego, that goes about taking care of everyday life events, and your true Spirit within. This Spirit is the core of your being... the energy that supports your life. Letting go of outside distractions allows you to touch your Spiritual core.
Have you ever been so involved in a project you love doing that time passed without notice, everything just flowed as it should, and all the pieces fell into place with ease? Your inner Spirit was guiding you, because you let go of everything around you and focused on the task. Spirit is that place inside you that gives you the inspiration and love for that task because it is right for you, it is what you were meant to do.
So when you ask what is Spirit? I say to you it is your centre, the core of your being that knows all you need to know to live a happy fulfilling life. This is not to say that you will never experience ups and downs in your life. Being in touch with your Spiritual centre will help you to deal with stressful situations, because you will be approaching it from the calm of your Spiritual centre. Answer the question for yourself, what is Spirit? Explore the meaning for yourself, read, and learn. You will touch the core of your being and begin the journey to Spiritual awakening then handling life's challenges will be easier.
Everyone has a Spirit within; everyone is dealing with different life situations that contribute to their outlook on life. They may not seem like Spiritual beings at times but it is there and if you can recognize that small spark in all things you will be the better for it.
Open your mind and heart, learn and listen to the voice of the Spirit within...
Trust Your Inner Voice...
