THE  ART  OF  SPIRITUAL  DIGNITY

Before we explore the Art of Spiritual Dignity, let us first establish a foundation worthy to be mentioned: every member of the human race is a spiritual being.  Yes!  Every member of the human race is a spiritual being.


In the Hebrew Scriptures, known by many as the Old Testament, in Genesis 1:26-27 NRSV, it is written: "Then God said, 'Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness;' So god created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them."  In other words, all of the power, qualities, and very nature that are true of God are likewise true of all humankind.


In the New Testament, John 4:24, it is written: "God is Spirit."  In I John 4:8 and I John 4:16 it is written that "God is Love."  Because God is Spirit, and we are offspring of Spirit, then it stands to reason that we are Spiritual Beings.  Because God is also Love, and we are offspring of Love, then we could also be identified as Beings of Love.


What is this idea or quality named Love?  The Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines "love" as "unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another."

What do we mean by Dignity?  The Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines "dignity" as "the quality or state of being worthy, honored, or esteemed."

As Beings of Love, we are empowered with the ability to express Spiritual Dignity, to behave in a manner worthy of honor, or esteem.

Spiritual Beings, our thoughts and emotions have creative power.  Treating our every thought and emotion with unconditional Love will guarantee that our every act and reaction will reflect Spiritual Dignity.

Do consider joining with us, in mastering The Art of Spiritual Dignity.
