Spiritual practices can be nurtured and maintained by encouragement and support from others who share your values. This has certainly been true in my own life. I am fortunate enough to have family and friends with whom I can discuss spirituality and our shared goal of incorporating deeper values into our lives. These conversations go a long way toward helping us strengthen our commitment to our spiritual side, and I believe that this kind of support group can make an important difference in your life as well. If you are not part of such a group, now try to join one. Most communities have spiritual centers that can put you in touch with people who meet to share thoughts about the fundamental questions of existence. Finding and keeping those friends who share your values to discuss spirituality on a regular basis is just another way to do it.
