Religion, Meditation, Spirituality in Family Life

Visualize 10 people working together on a group project with the goal of creating a playground for the neighborhood children. Each neighbor has a different background and experiences life in their own way depending on the many events bringing them to the present moment.

Though each has different opinions on how to go about the construction, the common goal is a playground for the happiness of their community of kids.

This story is an example of how our approach to Spirit may be based on past experience, but the common goal of permanent happiness is the same for all.

When a couple begin a relationship it may turn out that their religious backgrounds are not the same. But does that mean their spiritual experiences have been different? No.

Growing spiritually is the goal of religious practice

In a relationship where the partners have different religions there are still some spiritual practices they can share. Meditation and contemplation are spiritual practices that people of diverse backgrounds and many religions can do together in harmony, with the spiritual goal of the higher experiences such as joy, charity, peace, unconditional love.

Meditation is a bridge from unrest to the state of harmony in Spirit. It has a universal result from a variety of practices.

Meditation brings us to the spiritual goal of religious practice

Marriage and raising children is a combined effort; the partners have not led identical lives and choosing one religion to raise the children in is a practical basis to set them on the spiritual path.

Will the kids follow in their parents' choice of religion for them for the long term? Look to your own life to see that we each practice what worked best to lead to the universal spiritual experiences. Isn't it in aligning with the higher qualities of Spirit that we feel purpose and underlying satisfaction in living.
