Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.
The spiritual life does not remove us from the world but leads us deeper into it.
Henri J. M. Nouwen
In its simplest definition, ‘spirituality’ means knowing how to live with meaning and purpose.

Spirituality is not about beliefs - it is about the way we live and conduct our day-to-day lives.
in his autobiography No Destination.
Spirituality, for me, is everyone’s natural connection with the wonder and energy of life...and the instinct to explore that experience and its meaning.
I dreamt I could see my grandparents’ house which I had never seen before. I saw beside the fence a very old damaged Bible. I was so angry at the person whoever it was who put it there. In real life I would never do this - but I threw the Bible into the brook which was only maybe seven big steps from the house. The water was not deep. But the Bible stopped only close to the water. The wind opened the pages and I saw my sister’s photo there. I was very amazed because my sister died and I saw her smile at me, like in real life. The smile was real indeed. I was running to get this photo but the wind turned the next page and I saw a faded picture of the Virgin Mary and the sentence was: ‘In your hard time seek refuge in me’. The sentence was not in my Slovakian language but I understood the translation. The same morning I called my mum in Slovakia. I said to her that I had a dream about my sister, but I didn’t say what about. She said that she had the dream as well. There was dead silence between us, but the silence can say more than words sometimes.

Sigmund Freud – dreams
Considered the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) revolutionizes the study of dreams with his work The Interpretation Of Dreams.
Introduction to Sigmund Freud’s Theory on dreams
Freud believed the dream to be composed of two parts - the manifest and the latent content. The manifest content can be thought of as what a person would remember as soon as they wake – what they would consciously describe to someone else when recalling the dream. Freud suggested that the manifest content possessed no meaning whatsoever because it was a disguised representation of the true thought underlying the dream. A fascinating website with lots of information.
The philosophy of dreams - by Sri Swami Sivananda
The analysis of dreams and their cause by psychoanalysts are defective. They maintain that the cause of dream creation lies in the suppressed desires of the dreamer. Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj is an Advaita Vedantin of Sri Sankara’s School, he is unique in that in his life and teachings he synthesises the highest idealism and dynamic practical life. His “Divine Life” is ideal life, ideal and divine only because it is possible to live it here and now.
