What is a Spiritual Moment?
Each person has a mental atmosphere that is the result of all that he has thought, said, done, and consciously or unconsciously perceived. This mental atmosphere is very real and is that subtle influence that constitutes the power of personal attraction; for personal attraction has but little to do with looks; it goes much deeper and is almost entirely subjective.
This will explain the likes and dislikes of those with whom we come in daily contact. We meet some, only to turn away without a word, while others we are at once drawn toward, and without any apparent reason; this is the result of their mental atmosphere or thought vibration. No matter what the lips may be saying, the inner thought out speaks them and the unspoken word often carries more weight than the spoken.
In contacting people, we are instantly attracted or repelled, according to the vibrations which we feel. A person whose atmosphere is one of love and sunshine, whose nature is to be happy, who lives a clean, wholesome life in a free atmosphere, will always attract friends.
Children feel mental atmosphere very keenly and are drawn to those who are inwardly right, shunning those who are inwardly wrong. It has been truly said that people whom children and dogs do not like are dangerous.
Animals are almost entirely subjective and feel mental atmospheres more keenly than do most people. A dog instinctively knows one's attitude toward him and, acting accordingly, is immediately a friend or foe. Personal atmospheres vary in their intensity, there being as many varieties as there are people; for each creates his own atmosphere in Mind.
As Emerson said: "What you are speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say."
When it comes to spiritual moments it does help to put yourself in situations with like-minded people. Although it is not necessary. Let me explain it this way. In my life, I have had many spiritual moments. I am not sure that my words will be able to express the feelings that I experienced.
Many years ago I went to see Ram Dass. He is one of my favorite authors. When I left at the end of his talk I felt like I was walking on air. My body and mind were at a level of peace not generally achieved. It lasted maybe two hours then faded.
Praying with a group of friends has also has given me this comfort.
Connecting with a new friend that I just met or watching a movie that stirs my emotions and my spirit.
The circumstances will be unique to you. I know that if you think about it it will come into your awareness. My recommendation would be to surround yourself with like-minded people. Join a spiritual prayer group or meet friends for loving talks.
Most important is that you take the time for yourself. Love yourself and others. You will see these special moments.
