Spiritual Health: The Integrated Self
When life becomes overwhelming we can revisit the place where we can know love – in the presence of God. God created us to be one in body, mind, and spirit; to be whole, integrated persons. Because there are so many pulls on our lives, a sense of being integrated may be difficult. Of course it is much easier to say “Live an integrated life and be a whole person” than it is to daily live this way. Although accomplishing this level of integration sounds simple, it may not be easy to maintain. The complexity or ease of embracing one’s total health as a way of life will depend upon one’s lifestyle and one’s priorities.
