Spirituality & Psychology

     It might seem like spirituality and psychology do not have a lot in common, but that would be a mistaken assumption. Each of  them draws people who are looking for a deeper answer for living and being. Each of them involves practices devoted to consciousness and the courage to look at the shadow side of one’s self. Each of them can not be truly done without a mentor or guide as we are all blocked to certain aspects of ourselves that are in our way.  In each scenario it is not a quick fix and in all likelihood involves a life time of work and personal streching.

     Spirituality for me is the reservior that all religions originate. At the core one finds the issues of soul, humility, compassion, unconditional love, and forgiveness. It is from this center that most of us strive to live in. Getting to this center means we have to heal the wounds of our ego  allowing us to become more centered and real. Being in EGO stands for Edging God Out. The more we can clean house on our egoic nature the more we are living in our true selves. This is the goal of spiritual practices and psychology. The goal is the same though the reasons for getting there maybe different. The important thing is to put the goal as the priority. To be one with self and get the neruotic garbage out of the way is to be more within self and therefore more with your spirit.
