A spiritual perspective is about having an awareness of oneself, and the reasons situations are occurring in your life. It is about self knowledge through self awareness. Life can be a tranquil sea, a storm or a hurricane and the only thing you have to manoeuvre through it are are your thoughts, emotions and actions. A strong belief in the divine that rules all life is essential and comforting. For me it is God, others might find other words to describe this connection, maybe soul, consciousness, spirit or higher self.
