Long ago and far away from some now unknown and no longer recalled source, the word spirituality was described as a relationship with:
- The Outer Self,
- The Inner Self,
- And the Higher Self.
These three relative aspects of Spirituality were required. All worldly cultures and societies in Ancient Times appeared to hold this (as a) basic human relationship concept . It was a slow, painful, often boring but sometimes comforting process.
What happened throughout the ages to cause basic Human Spirituality now to be looked down on as an unimportant concept or at the very least “A Newcomer of Suspicious Character?” Spirituality is as old as the Ages but possibly in this newest Age upon us now, it just might need some faith uplifting.
The old way ran something like this: First, you had an outer self that automatically adapted itself to fit into society. Second, you realized that it was important to be in touch with an inner self, which made life worthwhile. Finally, you felt connected to a higher self you could rely on to assist you through your life – the good times as well as the bad.
Our Outer Self has always been that part of us that is very suspicious and questions everything that our Inner Self who has direct connection to our Higher Self suggests might be the best thing to do for all concerned under the circumstances.
