While a material foundation can help you through material concerns, it doesn’t necessarily help you through emotional upsets. A spiritual foundation can help much more during times of stress and emotional difficulty.
Knowing you are (like everybody) a child of the universe, and knowing there is unseen energy out there supporting you as the spark of light that you are, can help keep you from the abyss of negative thinking.
Things to help create a lasting spiritual foundation are meditation, personal divination, spiritual learning through theology, pastors, shaman, gurus and even religion. How strong is your foundation?
