Spirituality is something that every person has at some point in their life either experienced or thought about. It is not something that you can touch or just buy from the malls. It’s something that a person chooses to believe in, feel it and then see it work.
There main ideas of spirituality lie in its teachings. There are many spiritual teaching that are available for people to choose, belief and practice the teachings. Not all are acceptable to everyone on earth, though for those that are staunch believers in these spiritual teachings their is joy and love to be found.
Spiritual teachings from Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha as well as other sources of spiritual teaching have a number of common messages that are able to change people’s lives. Some of the spiritual teachings that will change your life include;
1 Teachings on love.
Love happens to be one of the greatest spiritual teachings of all time. The holy bible tries to explain that; because the Lord loved the world so much that he opted to give his only son, so that whoever that chooses to believe in him, will not perish but earn eternal life. The spiritual teaching of love is emphasized by Jesus who teaches that not unless we love our neighbors as we love ourselves then everything that we do is useless.
2 Teaching on Wealth
All spiritual beliefs have teachings on how people should earn and use their wealth. Though they all dictate that there is no room for anyone to be poor, they all advocate that people earn their living honestly and without oppressing others. The holy Koran teaches against unfair interest rates and other things of the kind. The Bible teaches people on how to earn a decent living by asking one of the most thoughtful questions of all time “What does it benefit a man to earn the whole world and lose his soul?”
3 Teaching on Forgiveness
Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed had the same spiritual teaching on forgiveness. Jesus for example argued his followers to always forgive people that wrong them so that their father in heaven would also forgive them. Revenge doesn’t earn you anything; if someone slaps one side of your face, give him the other side. The spiritual teaching on forgiveness changes the life of those that forgive since it relieves them the burden of having to keep on feeling bad about their fellow human beings. The story of the prodigal son in the Bible is a classical example of how forgiveness works and its importance.
4 Teaching on Hope.
These spiritual teachings advocate that hope should be the last thing that should die in a person. “For there is hope of a tree, if cut down to sprout again.” This is because God in his wisdom has a way of giving hope to the hopeless.
5 Teaching of Faith.
Faith is explained in spiritual circles as assurance of things that are hoped for and being convinced of things that one has not seen. The foundation of any spiritual teaching is faith. It is through faith that a person can make what seems impossible possible which in turn changes how one views his or her life. If only everyone can afford faith that is as small as the mustard seed, then we can really move mountains and change the world.
All these spiritual teachings are meant to change the lives of people. They allow people to relate well with their neighbors and treat each other with dignity which brings glory to the creator of heaven and earth and as a result change lives of people and bring joy.
