Occupy Spirituality – Point 4

Occupy Spirituality – Point 4

Point number four – This new spirituality says that spirituality that does not include action is no spirituality at all.  But it’s not just about any action – it’s about action that comes from one’s deepest calling. 

This spirituality does not accept the reality of living a divided life, such as complete withdrawal or a separate career divided from one’s soul and its deepest aspirations.  Those dualities of the past no longer apply here.  For young people today, the sense of vocation and the sense of calling become the very doorways into spirit.  So this new spirituality also realizes that the new world can be created only if people incarnate their unique gifts and callings in the world and employ them in the service of compassion and justice.
