The essence of the spiritual needs of man

Whathuman spiritual needs? What should be the spiritual life, and how can one determine in general, where is the beginning of the spiritual in a human being? The question is kind of philosophical.

Human spiritual needs

Holy Fathers believe that man consists of body, soul, and spirit. To understand what spirit is, we turn to Scripture. “When the Lord made man, He breathed into his face the breath of life.”

 

Most likely, this breath is our spirit. The spirit that is given to us by God at birth and returns back after death.

 

It turns out that if there is a divine spirit in us, then he must strive towards God. We often do the opposite. Our life is likened to a pyramid, turned upside down. The carnal comes to the fore, and the spiritual - to the last.

 

So it turns out that the spiritual needs of a person are stingy and are not particularly "demanding." It is good if a person goes to the temple, reads spiritual literature and prays daily.

 

But even from such church-related people one can often hear that during worship they are not attentive or do not always understand the meaning of prayers.

 

And sometimes the soul is suddenly enlightened, experiencing the grace of the Most High. It is at such moments that we really live a spiritual life. It is a pity that this happens so rarely.

 

What must be done to make our spirit stronger and stronger? Work hard. By work is meant communication with God, the development in yourself of such qualities as will, patience, nobility ...

 

Yes, such qualities that will help us be proud of their origin, the origin of the Orthodox Christian.

 

What should be expressedhuman spiritual needs? We must have a constant desire to communicate with God. For this you need to pray. Praying regularly - in the morning, in the evening, in the afternoon ... Read the rules or pray in small phrases, or maybe just in your own words.

You can talk about the spiritual life in a generalized way, but everyone will know what it really is when he begins to live it. If once you have touched spirituality, then you hardly want to go any other way. Man is conceived perfect, as the Lord Himself has determined.

 

Therefore, the spiritual needs of a person is a striving for the bright, the good, the sublime. In order to cultivate a constant craving for God,pray like this: “Lord, help me to find no satisfaction except for You!” And the Lord will surely hear you.

Two sides of death
We are afraid of death. And often we forget that there are two sides to it. On the one hand, death is tragic. It separates us from those whom we love, being the result of our falling away from God. On the other hand, it is death that breaks the vicious circle of remoteness from God and opens the door to the heavenly Fatherland.

The spiritual state of a person can be determined by what he thinks about other people. We look at others through the prism of our inner world.
