Things spiritual

Find out various people’s take on spirituality or, as we like to put it ‘how to become whole?’

We would value your contribution to this debate. As Carl Jung said, ‘The helpful formula [for recovery from alcoholism] is: spiritus contra spiritum’ (It takes the Spirit of God to overcome the harmful spirit of alcohol) .  He goes on ‘The only right and legitimate way to such an experience [the union with God] is that it happens to you in reality, and it can only happen to you when you walk on a path which leads you to a higher understanding’.

However, Carl Jung adds, “the use of such words arouses so many mistakes that one can only keep aloof from them as much as possible’. And that’s where we at the Welsh Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs differ from Carl Jung.  The misuse of alcohol and drugs is of such major current concern and the social problems that are caused affect society to such an extent that we can no longer remain ‘aloof from them’. True, using such terminology can sometimes alienate people from the very help they might require. Many hate “church people”; and they have little interest in having more fears and guilty feelings heaped on them. Neither do they have any interest in hearing more sermons and invocations. But they are interested in learning about love. How to be happy? How to live? How to experience those amazing things the spiritual giants talk about?

I clench my fist on tender things,
And close my ears to silent wings,
I purse my lips at taste that’s real,
And bolt my heart on all I feel.

Do you remember the first things you learnt about your Christian Faith? I was probably 3 or 4 years old when I was taught to say ‘God is love’ before a very well attended morning Service.

The best description we have of God as he actually is can be found in the ‘Book of Common Prayer’:- ‘Everlasting, without body, parts or passions; of infinite power, wisdom and goodness.’ I had no difficulty in realising that I was made up of a body, even before I learnt the catechism. But trying to understand that I had a soul as well as a body proved to be more difficult and has remained so until today.

Trust Him when dark doubts assail you,
Trust Him when your strength is small.
Trust Him when, to simply trust Him
Seems the hardest thing of all.
