Overcoming spiritual bad habits is a challenge but daily practice of good habits can overcome them. We all know about these seven great spiritual habits to enhance our spirituality. Nothing is new about these, but we have forgotten all of them. This is to remind you of them. I am writing these points so that they should be firmly grounded in our mind. This is to improve the habits of mind.
Habit 1: Stay Active and Alive All the Day
Stay active throughout the day. This is one of the most important spiritual habits. As you are growing older, you need to increase your hormonal balance. Hormonal balance is the first thing of modern spirituality. Om meditation is a easiest way for hormonal balance. If your health is perfect, your spirit will be perfect and in perfect spirit you can realize the depth of your higher spirit. Insulin is one of the most important hormone to keep under balance for real spiritual progress. The first step to improve your insulin sensitivity is to participate in some sort of physical activity periodically throughout the day. It is not necessary that you have to go to gym regularly and perform vigorous exercises but you can easily do your home works like cooking, going to market, buying something new and fresh, walking on the footpath. Shopping malls are now a days are the best place for doing spiritual activities like mindfulness meditation. Spirituality means something related to higher spirit. In this new era of spiritual freedom, you need to drop the old ideas of spirituality.
Habit 2: Drink Enough Water
Normally, we need to drink at least 1.5 litres of water daily to stop us getting dehydrated. This works out to be about ten x 150ml or 8 x 200ml glasses of water. You can drink more if you can. “God’s spirit hovered over the water.” (Genesis 1:2). About 60 percent of our body weight is water. We can not ignore water in our body. For spirituality, we can go to the churches and temples. But unfortunately we have forgotten the water, the living spirit in our body.
