Ripples #696: A Spiritual Journey.
For our tribe of 31,587 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Whether we realize it or not,
we are always on a spiritual journey;
even when we feel most lost.
-Frank Warren (of the PostSecret Project),

is always speaking to us…
sending us little messages,
reminding us to stop,
to look around,
to believe in

Believing in God works for some people, but not everyone.
Faith in a higher power is one form of spiritual direction, but not the only one. I don’t think you have to believe in God in order to have faith that their is something bigger at work in the universe. And I don’t think you have to believe that everything happens for a reason in order to find meaning in things that happen.
If you have found a form of spiritual expression that provides understanding, direction, and support in your life, I hope you can spend some extra time enjoying and possibly deepening that connection. If you have not, I invite you to be curious this week about any unexpected opportunities to connect with people, music, or nature: anything or anyone that could reveal a bigger picture, a different way of looking at the world.
