What is even "mystical" and "spirituality"?
por Ivo Poletto
The question because it does not always return the same to define what is once and for all. It's like the way, in popular education: is walking path which is. The understanding of what they are and what differences and relations between mysticism and spirituality becomes more clear in the practice of seeking these qualities of human.
These are qualities of the human, woman and man. His life has its origin in a "divine breath", a desire of God that the woman and man are "image" of him, loving creators like him. Every human being is spiritual; manifest-if, are spiritually related. But their practices show "different spirit": convictions, motivations, levam to viver values differently. By being free as God, can make choices, and they mark their spirit: make each person has a "good spirit", or I HAVE "spirit pork", the popular saying.
The parable of the Sower, created by Jesus, can help us in the pursuit of what is mysticism and spirituality. The seed is the call, the good life proposal presented by Jesus; is himself, já diz us: love one another as I have loved you. But it falls on different terrain. If we understand the land as people, different types of terrain indicate different types of them spirit: some are like the ground and stomped hard road; other, como o terreno pedregoso; other, as a land infested with thorns; other, ultimately, as fertile ground, that welcomes and makes the seed germinate; nevertheless, some do produce little, Other somewhat more, and other seed multiplies the maximum.
Everyone, com found Jesus do before, or with us, already have their motivations, their ideas and choices in relation to values, their way of life and live with the people and with the land; Everyone has their "mystique". And has the fruit of what God sowed her own and what she sowed itself; namely, do interest, da searches, greater or lesser, than would help to better; this seeding, it busca, performed by various practices, is its careful with your spirit, care to be fertile ground, in that new seeds can germinate: is their spirituality.
Even though it is difficult, like swimming against correnteza, it is possible that people, the good use of their freedom, take care of themselves to fundamentals have, motivations and mind open for good seed. This care can follow different paths, different spiritual traditions; each serves food to the spirit, the deep motivations, à mystical. Spirituality is a set of practices that characterize each of these paths; each, to experience them, introduz something original, turning it on its way.
