The Spiritual Struggle

The spiritual struggle is revealed in times of great stress and disequilibrium.

Like an illness, this struggle can be recognized by markers and symptomatic qualities.

What are these markers?

Loss of meaning and purpose, despair, grief or loss, hopelessness, anger at God, feeling punished or abandoned by God, guilt and a need for reconciliation.

To be disconnected from your self and from others is to be at spiritual risk.

When people are at spiritual risk, they have spiritual needs and low spiritual resources with which to meet them.

Seek to discover where your spiritual resources reside. Build them like an altar to your inner sanctuary. Daily.
