Spirituality plays a very sequential role in everybody’s life. First of all, theology helps us to govern what is right and what is wrong. Many of the decisions that we make in our everyday life are believed to be a direct result of our spirituality.
For as long as we could keep in mind that we have been raised to believe that we should live our own life the way God would want us to live it. Second, spirituality will also help us to feel more secure about what will happen to our spirit once our life here on earth is over.
The very first poem titled ‘Be with Yourself’ from this book contributes a simplified version of human spirituality. This book of poetry of the honourable poet Srinivasan P Nathan depicts the true meaning of silence in terms of real spirituality for a common man in the below lines.
Essence of Life
To be understood
And adhered Day and Night
The poetic definition of spirituality and religiosity is missing among most of us, what it means to be spiritual or religious and what constitutes a spiritual person in the literature is still very highly researched.
Many definitions of religiosity and spirituality include religious service attendance, some sort of meaning and purpose in life, personal strength to cope with difficulties and believing in a higher being. Older adults tend to have stronger faith and greater spirituality than younger.
So, All we need
“Is to spend some time
With ourselves in peace”
The above simple poem ends with a meaning and purpose in life, self-awareness, and connectedness with self-others. The poem titled ‘Quest’, I wish to highlight the beauty of the frameworks of poetic lines which are as follows:
“Amongst the flock of sheep
My heart beats a different beep”
“In me, moment of peace
And tranquility I find
Thanks for giving me
A chance to live Holy Divine”
The above poetic inspiration was meant for realistic indicators or what are taken as essential attributes of spirituality. The framework that was formed was between the similarities and differences of the approaches that were identified.
I wish good luck to the honourable Poet Srinivasan P Nathan, Stay blessed, Love and Light.
