Spirituality requires us to identify, question and place ourselves within the larger scheme of things in relation to others, the natural world, our deities and non-incarnated beings. It requires us to do a research on continuous basis. It helps us to act in such a way that all of the decisions we make, regardless of how insignificant they may seem at the time, ultimately lead to spiritual enlightenment and self-realization.
This is an enormous task and one of the major difficulties of growing spiritually. These goals are essentially life-long objectives that typically extend beyond one’s physical existence. It makes it difficult to notice where you have slipped and where you have grown incrementally. This ultimately leads to spiritual complacency.
In order to keep track of your spiritual growth and identify aspects on which to focus you can do the following: 1) Consult the spiritual teachings to which you subscribe on an everyday basis (i.e. reading holy scripture), 2) Choose a particular topic within spirituality to study in depth (it is helpful to choose a topic that will resonate with you personally), 3) Keep a journal of your thoughts and feelings and relate it back to your spiritual goals and 4) Spread the word, get involved with the community and pass on your knowledge to the next generation.

Achieve your Spiritual Goals
The core of spirituality is the belief that we are all somehow connected to each other, the spiritual realm, the natural world and the universe. We consciously place ourselves in the center of everything, physically and mentally in order to make a difference on this earth.
It is necessary for us to grow as spiritual beings and become more enlightened as we practice our spirituality. It is essential that we improve our consciousness and perceptions of this interconnectedness on a continuous basis. It can be done by keeping track of our spiritual goals.
