Achieve Spiritual Enlightenment
The first step to attain higher levels of Spirituality is through Spiritual Enlightenment, a process of absorbing knowledge and wisdom without judgment.
What does it mean to experience spiritual enlightenment? Spiritual enlightenment is a continuous realization that you are an internal being. It comes from a deep knowing that you are beyond body and behind the mind. It is about celebrating every moment of the day with feelings, of being connected, to the universe as if it is a living, breathing conscious intelligence that loves you unconditionally. It is surrendering to a truth everywhere you are.
Spiritual enlightenment is a process of peeling back many layers of the ego to experience your true self. It is a process of opening to your inner most being. Reaching towards the center of you, this means you find a spiritual cyclone. Yet keep diving beyond that essence of your being, is where your true spiritual knowledge resides.
As you continuously rest deeper into the quiet peaceful still center in the heart of your being, you will eventually awaken to the divine being you truly are. The longer you can stay in this center, the faster you will find yourself manifesting in a life, full of depth, clarity, love and bliss.
When you look inside at your infinite nature, there exists a divine energy inside you, which is connecting to the infinite source of the universe. This source is always available to you, if you are open to it. The moment you have a tiny glance at your infinite nature, you see that you are divine; you are the source of love itself.
The universe is a conscious field of energy that constantly supports you in awakening to knowing the truth. Simply ask yourself “what am I really”? If you answer this, with thoughts and beliefs about yourself, you have just arrived at a thought about what you are and cannot truly see your infinite nature. The infinite is beyond words, ideas and concepts. You need simply to be with what is, and the source will one day suddenly pour into you.
Nothing that happens is by accident. Even your decision to read this, is not an accident. Each experience you have in life is the right experience. Every lesson you are here to learn is provided to you through these experiences. The spiritual world and the universe are constantly giving you assistance.
Your problems and issues in life are like particles of sand between your toes, depending how you move through life the sand can either grind or message your feet. Your problems are your greatest teachers in disguise. Explore your life with a child like curiosity; life has a greater wisdom for you than you can conceive, because the world is designed to awaken. enlighten, heal and empower you.
Everything is connected to a cosmic intelligent that is energy and love. You will receive an increasing flow of amazing enlightenment, when this happens your insight will follow, the moment you let go and you trust your self. You will start to notice your body becoming relaxed, empty, soft and open to almost every possibility that comes your way.
As you become more patient and wiser with life you will naturally create time to explore your inner world. By practicing meditation will help you to quieten your mind, and helps you go deeper into your being; you will start to explore your heart, mind and soul.
To see an instant shift in your consciousness, focus on what is working in your life, instead of what is not. If a certain problem or issue keeps arising and will not go away, sit with it and face it directly. Write about it, talk about it to someone you trust. Listen to the mental chatter in your head. It is pointing towards the answer if you follow it. These problems or issues are re-occurring because of unlearned lessons in life from ignoring past issues. As you experience your problems or issues, notice the depth of your breath and simply observe. Do not judge anything, especially yourself. Simply be with what is happening on the inside.
The following will take you closer to having an experience of spiritual enlightenment:
Free yourself from the illusion that you are separate.
Feeling separate and discounted is how you create failure after failure in life. Once you untangle yourself from this belief, you can move on. All experiences of suffering are created by your minds lack of awareness in seeing who you really are.
Quieting the incessant chattering in your mind.
Your ego is a thought program, like a computer. It just spits out information and computes ideas that are about the past and future. The mind/ego is a limited construction of ideas and beliefs about who you are. The more you can silence the chattering mind, the less likely you are to become trapped in your ego. Only through the constant release of the ego can you live in true spiritual enlightenment. You become aligned with the truth and you infinite spiritual being.
Embrace and release all you fears.
As you may have heard, fear really stands for false evidence appearing real. To find what you are afraid of, open yourself up to intimate conversation. Eventually you will be able to see into yourself again and understand truly what you are running from. Once you know what you are running away from, run towards it, and embrace it. It will dissolve the fear from your life allowing you to move forward.
Embrace and release all mental, emotional and physical attachment or aversions to everyone and everything in your life.
As a human being you will become attached to people, you will care about what they say, do or think about you. This happens because you have an automatic habit of trying to avoid what is painful and stay with what is pleasurable. The problem arises when you become too attached to having what is pleasurable all the time. Pain and suffering is the universe telling you to let go! The purpose of pain is not about creating more suffering, it is about creating change, this change is necessary for you to drop your ego-trip and return to your spiritual source again. This allows you to start enjoying your life. You experience pain because of one thing, ignorance. Think of the word ignore add a little dance to it and you get ignorance. When you ignore the truth of your being, your ignorance transmits into suffering. To transcend this ignorance and find spiritual enlightenment again, you need to find a deep awareness. With this profound state of consciousness, you can let go. The truth is, all you need to do is to re-discover the truth of who you are.
Freedom from unconscious myths and everyday stories of separation.
What was your story of failure or separation? Usually when you hear your parents and siblings having problems, you attach yourself to it, this is where the separation beings. Your parents would have sent you off to an education system (which by the way only works 15% of your brains potentiality and capacity), this system is to support and help you learn about life. What society never taught you was how to be still inside, quieten your mind and emotions, meditate; focus on who you are or how to achieve inner bliss. Society leads you to believe that success and truth is all about status, money and career. While these are important, the reality is, success is defined by how fulfilled you are as a human being.
You need to stop thinking that thinking is a way of getting what you want.
Thinking has become the norm. It has become abnormal in society to sit and be silent. You might find you run away from meditation because you cannot quieten your mind and you feel you are losing control of it. The ironic thing is, that all of the suffering, chaos and illness in life are cause be a lack of control and awareness of the mind. Instead of tuning to silence to find the answers, you’re taught to think more and know more, so you can achieve what you want. You are not taught to discover about being in the here and now.
Do not hide from your true power in a safe little fishbowl.
Thoughts are safe, while experiences are real and unsafe. You will find it easier not to take the risk of getting hurt by diving into the ocean of experience in life. Not only you but also everyone stays comfortable in a fishbowl because it gives you and them a sense of confidence and security. Life is like an uncontrollable roller coaster ride because you do not know the future. In other words, you do not know how to respond to experiences that occur outside your fishbowl. Instead, you think about an experience without having one. Through television, films and books you hide from your powerful spirit and pretend to be complete.
Let go of the need to be right all the time.
Being right can be the hardest ego trip to get off. To get off, means that you need to be wrong sometimes. If everyone tells you from birth to death that life is a struggle and that it is hard, painful and unfair, you will believe them. So how can you relax and let go and trust yourself? You think you must fight to get what you want. If life is serious, you are probably going to gain love, success and freedom by stepping on or over others. The world is a community of beings, it is a playground, a play and a stage where you can choose any role you desire.
Replace the positive.
Lack of awareness (ignorance) of your ever-present connection, stems from a lack of inner peace, power and playfulness, which can create low energy, this means you stay asleep. When you do not respond with awareness, you just react unconsciously from past habits of being a victim and you create more experiences of being a victim. The truth is, you are really a human program. You have the same thoughts day after day. This creates a seriously deep rut in your life, and the only way out is through being responsible for your thoughts and by choosing more empowering thoughts to help you move forward.
Choosing to suffer and stay unconscious.
Your society loves people who step out of line. The people around you often criticize you the moment you try to break out of the societal of unconscious living. The unconscious way is acceptable, it’s advertised on the television, films, news, media, radio and newspapers. However, we can all agree on one thing, and that is everything you need to end your suffering is outside of you, not inside of you! You may be caught up in the rat race to reach a certain status and to give you the luxury you want, this you believe will rid you of suffering. This never works. The cheese you are after just gets bigger. I am sure you are aware by now that suffering comes from constant desire. When you desire less, you remember again how connected you are to your spiritual self
To have spiritual enlightenment, means waking up from the rat race. It takes a lot of effort to go against what you believe to be true. The great part however, is that the universe will not let you down.
