What does spirituality mean to you?
Being actually in touch with your inner self, with who you really are. And then, how that core self connects to the outer world, to what I strongly believe in, to the universe.
How do you connect to your inner self?
I don't think you can meditate yourself towards it. Rather, it's about being completely honest to yourself about who you are and not try to be anyone else. It's always been the most important thing for me: be who you are and stay within that zone. Don't try and step over the line of what is real for you.
It's also got a lot to do with a lack of fear to face who you are. Many people fear who they are and keep running away from themselves. It requires some courage to face who you actually are. And if you are the same inside and outside it's easier to reach that core. Because then, there are no walls or barriers.
I have very strong instincts, animal instincts. And I follow them. They have always guided me. Instincts, impulses, being in touch with who I am have been the main anchors of my life.
Life being a race, it is easy to get out of touch, isn't it?
True. I don't think it is possible to be all the time fully in touch with ourselves. And we do get carried away at times in the race of life, or in the rut we all are in. But every now and then, life has its own natural ways to ground you and make you realize the importance of the self.
