Does Spirituality Only Come From Suffering?

About joatmon14

Man in recovery from everything, looking for a little help, inspiration and direction.... Have spent the last 25 years working in big business, getting lost in all the chaos, not feeling like what I did mattered. By no means am I a professional writer nor do I even think I am that good, but it is something I love to do. Getting lost in a world of words, even for just a little while is why I started my blogs. In reality, at the age of 49 I am trying to find my voice. To find my passion. Maybe starting a little late, but better late than never. I write for me, I enjoy reading other's thoughts very much as well and look forward to the day that I can hold an extended, intelligent, meaningful conversation with YOU View all posts by joatmon14

    I agree. It just tends to be this way because we often times fail to learn a lesson because we don’t think it worth learning until it is all we have left.

      That is my point. How can we get people to learn a lesson without having to go through the hell that precedes it? I’ve been where you are talking about, I had nothing left inside. Morally bankrupt. But I don’t want my kids to have to get to that point in order to feel the way that I do today

    I also believe that spirituality also comes from having no other perceived options. When you have no control over events, you turn to a “higher power” to intervene.
