A Resilient Spirit

Two words have made their way into the mainstream conversation that are profoundly relevant to the process of personal transformation. One is “mindfulness.” Books, television programs, and magazine cover stories frequently tout nowadays the health promoting benefits of mindfulness practices such as meditation.
The other word is “resilience” – a term that comes from physical science but has been popularized by psychology. We’re told that in order just to cope with the stresses of the daily world – let alone embark upon a path of personal transformation – we have to nurture our personal resilience and learn how to “bounce back” from the inevitable adversity and failures of life.
But maybe resilience is something more than just learning to be thick-skinned or developing strategies for getting back on our feet when we get knocked down by disappointment, illness, or trauma. Perhaps resilience is a vital spiritual capacity that provides the determination and stamina required to be on a path of awakening spirituality and personal transformation.
