Just like there are so many social strategies for making connections between individuals, there are various ways of connecting spiritually. This is achieved through analysis and understanding of the souls in the vessels kept in front of you. It takes a cultivated soul to actually listen and feel others for what they are. This is all a part of experiencing others and ourselves as spiritual beings, and once you start doing that, it means you’re well on your way to achieving a deeper understanding of everyone around you, including yourself.
So, how does something like this work? There are many ways of spiritually connecting and truly seeing someone, but love is the most common example. Mutual love is the single most important proof of being spiritually connected, and self-love unaffected by egoism is a clear display of understanding of oneself. This can all be learned, either from talking to God in the form of prayer or rituals, or by listening with your being, and not with your ears. Have you ever felt like you’ve known someone for a while? Chances are your spirits had connected faster than you thought possible, and you’re both savoring this experience.
Top 10 Interesting Quotes of Experiencing Ourselves as Spiritual Beings

“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
― Albert Einstein

Connect with Yourself
Ultimately, every good or bad feeling that we get from practicing either religion is a result of us making a connection with ourselves. It may sound strange at first, but religion is indeed a way of getting to know the true nature of things.
You are always your own greatest thing, and as such, are a whole world in itself waiting to be explored. Do not be afraid of venturing into you and finding out all the good and bad things within. It is all part of the road to self-exploration, which we were all born for.
