  • Looking within myself at that spark of the Divine within me. I communicate to the Divine and I focus on being a good person and doing my best every day.

    Thats what keeps me spiritually fulfilled because when I know Im trying my hardest to be a good person than Im close to the Divine and peace.

  • What keeps me spiritually fulfilled is attending ladies Bible class at my church. I've found that no matter how crappy and depressing my week may have been once I start fellowshipping with my fellow Sisters in Christ it gives me a renewed strength to keep pushing on pushing on.

  • As an atheist this is a bit of an odd question for me, as I don't consider myself to be "spiritual" in any traditional way. However, I do think I achieve that same sense of fulfillment that religious people seek, in a number of "non-supernatural" ways. Just being a good wife, mother, and person and trying my best to help others is a large part of it. Obviously I don't pray (or even meditate), but activities like taking a walk in the woods, spending an evening star-gazing, or otherwise marveling at the wonders of science and the natural world also gives me the same feeling that others would describe as being spiritually fulfilled.

  • I constantly read about and discuss religion - I just finished reading Jesus for the Non-Religious by Spong (and I read A New Christianity for a New World before that, also by Spong), and I'm starting a book on Gandhi next. So, yeah, lol, reading, discussing, just thinking about faith and finding ways to express how I believe, hearing and learning about the beliefs of others.... I just soak it all in. :)
