What is spiritual maturity?

Spiritual maturity is a state of being in which an individual has developed a deep and authentic connection with their inner self and a higher power, whatever that may be. It is a state in which an individual has a strong sense of purpose, meaning, and direction in life, and has developed a sense of inner peace, resilience, and contentment that is not dependent on external circumstances.

Spiritual maturity involves a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of all things and the recognition that all beings are inherently valuable and deserving of love and respect. It also involves a commitment to living in alignment with one’s values, principles, and beliefs, and to making a positive contribution to the world.

Spiritual maturity is a lifelong process of growth and development, and it can be cultivated through practices such as meditation, prayer, reflection, self-exploration, and service to others.

The Face

Transformational Poetry: The Face
by Liam

You awake, in the future that I am about to begin
You have sewn the seeds of my future deeds
Have made the start to heal a heart
Of the life I live within

It’s about that place I mean to go
Can only reach when I grow
Grow beyond my familiarity with me
Discovery
It’s where I’m growing too
It’s how I’m knowing too
It’s another, other side of my face
Where it’s give, share, love and happiness

You awake in the future I’m about to begin
Take my hands
Pull me up, away from the tears, the pain, the rain
Start the new
Begin to trace
Let leave the old
Transform my face.

On the Beach

Poem: On the Beach

by Liam

As I lie here weak not strong,

My head rings clear and full with song,

Of deeds and places friends long gone.

The splash of ripple on the beach.

Warm soft sand within my reach.

Sweet high clouds in a cobalt sky.

Floating on this moment free,

Its you who moves the how in me

Whose reach touches the now in me

We communicate our intimacies,

We communicate our intrinsic feelings.

We communicate the idiosyncrasies of togetherness.

Unknown to those other mortals on the beach.

Each captivated in their own exploratory world of now.

I let the ripples relax and cleanse

Sand washes deep,

This cleans the lens of thoughts, creative and benign.

The simplicity of Profound.

The exact’ty of the boundless found.

The joy is not being held in the identity of me,

I’m experiencing the freedom of the we.

As I lie here weak not strong,

My head rings clear and firm and strong.

The splash, the ripples on the beach

Soft the sand within my reach.

The warmth that holds and sets me free,

The cobalt blue in the sky I see.

Mother

Poem: Mother

by Liam

A bowl of flowers, on the tables wood.

In a pool of sun, the fragrance stood .

Like a watercolour painting which timelessly spins.

Radiant , streaming sweet scent and the stems.

Stamen, petals, blossoms, leaf together tight

The bouquet of color so radiant bright

Held in a crystal, a bowl she did say

A mothers gift, from my mother today.

This care which the colors convey?

Sweet memories fill me with joy each day,

Of daffodils, chrysanthemums, and lilacs too,

Of lilies, red roses, and of you.

Though days have passed, these flowers still bloom,

Their sweet scents beauty dispelling gloom.

Reminders of moments shared when you were near,

Now cherished memories, forever held dear.

And yet, beauty still radiates from within,

Caught in a vase, these flowers remind me of when

Your charm and joy lit up my world,

In every bloom, mothers love unfurled.

Paradise

Poem: Paradise

by Liam

The cherry picked and eaten,

The day so ripe and blue.

Your lips they shine like deep red wine.

I laugh and so do you.

As wild and sweet the berry,

The buzz of bees they sing.

In the air your golden hair,

Shines with the bell that rings.

The fruit the life the loving,

The way our journey spins.

To that place in paradise,

The end where this begins.

The sun it sets so gently,

A warmth that fills the air.

The sky it turns a soft pink hue,

And we know our love is here.

The stars begin to twinkle,

This night, it comes alive.

Wrapped up in each other’s arms,

Is a paradise, for our love will thrive.
