3 Spiritual Personality Traits To Develop


The spiritual path is more than a means for recovery, it is an entire devoted lifestyle. Refuge Recovery humbly opens the path to all those who come to us in earnest to seek it.

  • Respecting Time. Time is largely irrelevant. Time is not something which can be wasted, yet it is wasting away, all the time. There isn’t much we can do to stop time or alter time. Yet, it seems as though sometimes time moves quite slowly and at other times, time moves very fast. An important personality trait rooted in spirituality is a respect for and understanding of the fluidity of time. More specifically, to understand and respect the power of being in the present. Living in the past or the future is pointless. The past has already gone and the future has yet to arrive. Spiritual warriors thrive on being mindful in the present moment, recognizing that the only time is now- and now- and now.
  • Finding And Embracing A Purpose. What is our purpose in our time here on earth? This is a spiritual question that plagues many. Once we work through the existential crisis laying on the surface we find the spiritual guidance waiting underneath. So much of our spiritual journey is our purpose. We are, as it is commonly said, spiritual beings having human experiences. Perhaps the purpose we find is not the grand-master reason we are alive as human beings on planet earth. It is however, the role and presence that fulfills our passions, encourages our talents, and makes us useful to those around us.
  • Honoring Resistance. Karma is a teacher of resistance. When we resist learning our lesson, it continues to show up, begging for our attention. Karma is not punishing, but is persistent. We honor resistance by practicing mindfulness and meditation so that we can become aware of our resistances. Instead of judge them, evaluate them, and analyze them, we simply recognize them and decide how to honor them. By letting our resistances be without trying to change them, we can dive deeper and begin to take contrary action.
