This page has been created for the benefit of those who wish to read my Spirituality for Seekers posts in the order they were first published. Whilst a chronological reading of all posts is by no means necessary (providing you have already acquainted yourself with the six posts detailed on the Orientation page), it can be a good way for new readers to catch up at their own pace.
The Parable of The Island tells the story of a man who finds himself on a desert island with no memory of who he is, how he got there, or why.
What is a Seeker? A Seeker is someone who investigates spiritual matters for themselves, rather than blindly adopting the ‘truth’ of any existing tradition.
What is Spirituality? Spirituality is a way of being which concerns itself with our understanding and experience of the higher and often intangible aspects of human life.
Spirituality Matters Spirituality matters because your spiritual perspective is something that affects every other aspect of your life.
The Truth Will Set You Free The Seeker’s journey is an ongoing quest for truth, but spiritual truth is often far more difficult to pin down than most people would like.

Establishing a Daily Spiritual Practice A daily spiritual practice is a regular period of time in which you can reflect on spiritual matters and work with whatever ideas appeal to you.

The Power of Belief A belief is any idea which an individual accepts as being true, and all human beings hold a significant number of them at any given time. Beliefs are important because they serve as filters between the facts of life and your experience of those facts.
How to Create a Sacred Space A sacred space is one that evokes a sense of calm and quiet, and serves as an oasis of peace and stillness no matter how hectic your life may be.
Universal Spiritual Principles Universal spiritual principles are ones which are common to multiple paths and traditions, and are therefore well worth your investigation and consideration.
The Creative Principle This principle states that there is a Creative Principle at work in the universe which is all-knowing, all-powerful and in all places.
The Spiritual Principle The Spiritual Principle states that there is more to you than flesh and blood, and that you are in fact a spiritual being who is currently having a physical experience.
The Immortality Principle The Immortality Principle states that, because you are a spiritual being, you are also an immortal being.
The Unity Principle The Unity Principle states that there is no real separation between you and the universe, or between the universe and the Creative Principle itself.
The Karmic Principle The Karmic Principle states that every action you take – or fail to take – as a spiritual being will be followed by corresponding consequences.
The Resonance Principle The Resonance Principle, or Law of Attraction, states that you experience external events that are largely in tune with your spiritual expectations.
Spirituality Without the Woo Woo The aim of Spirituality for Seekers is to encourage the exploration of spirituality without the Woo-Woo.
Intuition: The Authority Within Your intuition is the only authority that you need on the subjective matter of spirituality.

The Universe Listens and Cares The third spiritual belief that I recommend adopting is that the universe listens to and cares about you.
Scripture Study for Spiritual Seekers Whilst it not essential for a spiritual Seeker to study the scripture of any particular tradition, many find value in such a practice.
