"It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life." -Tolkien

There are similarities amongst the places in the world where the people have the most longevity. They move, walk, and are active most of the day. They eat little to no meat. They have large familial ties and close friends. They consume a little alcohol each day (usually with said friends and family). They have a purpose, and they have a spiritual path that they honor. Some are Buddhist, 7th Day Adventists, or Catholic- the religion does not matter, it is the spirituality that matters. All paths lead to the same place. We are all on a journey. Everyone is different, so everyone’s perceptions and connections will be different as well, and that is a beautiful thing.

However one connects with their Creator, feels comfort, and peace is the right spiritual journey. Throughout our lives and experiences, we will connect with God in different ways, have different views of something bigger than we are, will have places we are more comfortable with and people we connect with. They are all right.

So go to church, shul, or temple. Or go hiking, light candles, or meditate. Create an alter and place pictures of ancestors upon it. Or elements of nature. See the face of Creator in each person you meet, in each animal you see, in each leaf or blade of grass. Feel that immense love and power inside of yourself as well. Today, honor your beliefs, whatever they may be.
