Working with a spiritual calendar to manage our daily activities and record the important days of the year of our family and friends birthdays or anniversaries can be very beneficial to us in two ways. Those important days do not get forgotten, that doctor’s appointment we made six months ago doesn’t get missed and the job interview we have is for sure on Thursday this week and not Thursday last week. The other way that it can help is that in some way it reminds us to work on our own personal development.
When we consciously begin a spiritual journey we are in essence on a “search for the sacred”. That can mean so many things to so many different people. We are trying to be a better person, a whole person and have inner peace for the most part. We might find a connection with nature that feeds that inner person or we might try to be more like Christ, Buddha or Muhammad and will want to work on ourselves from their teachings. The journey may have more meaning if we study the Torah. It could even be a combination of some or all of these for an individual. I once heard a Catholic priest tell someone that they should go where they grow spiritually. We can be spiritual and not be religious or we can be religious and spiritual because it is a personal walk.

If one begins to study or at least understand the teachings of many of the Asian religious orders we find that many teach the importance of balancing our spirit, our physical bodies and our emotions to be a happier person.

Many cultures of the world both past and present are connected more with the earth based religions. Having a nature based calendar that connects you and your spirit with the living creatures and beings on the earth may appeal to you more. Often we hear these beliefs and customs referred to as Pagan, Wiccan and Shamanistic but those are not the only forms of teachings that are based on nature.
Before the concept of one God became accepted by many, most cultures did have several gods that they worshiped and ask for guidance from. Many of those did and still do have a strong connection to the earth and nature as a whole. Indigenous people of North and South America learned from the animal spirits and the spirits of the trees, stones and other forms of nature the way to both survive and have a peaceful existence. Some tribal traditions call that walking on the good red road.
Usually, when the spirit within you seeks knowledge from these sources you are looking for a connection to yourself and the universe and where you fit in to all of it.
Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakes.
— Carl Jung
