The Goal of Life is Spiritual Enlightenment, or to raise your own Consciousness, plain and simple, nothing more than this. How do we get this enlightenment; do we need to sit under a tree and meditate or pray in a church all day like a monk? No, that is not necessary and for most of us it is not realistic either. There are practical things you can do each day, in your everyday life, to raise your consciousness and live a spiritual life.
It is important to note that when you work on your own spiritual freedom, you are also working on the spiritual freedom of humanity at the same time. This is because we are all connected and in reality we are all ONE mind, therefore our thoughts and actions have an effect on others whether we are aware of it or not. So how do we start on this path?
Spiritual Enlightenment also means spiritual awareness and a deep understanding of ourselves and who you really are; this is gained through becoming more and more consciously aware of yourself, moment to moment. As we are conscious of ourselves as humans, we tend to believe that we are this body we carry around, or this house we live in, and this job we hold and we identify ourselves with all the things (also known as form) that we have in our lives. The truth is that you are not actually all these things at all, you are in fact Spirit having a human experience and this body and these things (form) are just part of this experience for this lifetime.
Once you can start grasp this fact, you will begin to see that you are so much more than you what you ever could have imagined yourself to be. We are also not our past or our future, these things do not define us unless we allow them to. Letting go of this idea is part of the journey on the Path to Enlightenment.
A short word about Karma:
Everything we think, say and do, creates a Sanskara (Sanskrit word for mental impression), and these impressions create the world of duality – the so called good and bad that we experience. To reach full self realisation all impressions must be worked out or deleted and to do this we must experience their opposites. So Karma is a natural universal law that always prevails. Good rewards good and bad rewards bad. For example, if we act selfishly towards another person, it is likely at some point in time, we will also experience as selfish act upon us from someone. (not necessarily the same person).
5 Daily Tasks :
1. KINDNESS to others: When we forget about ourselves and spend time in selfless service to others we are also raising our own spiritual vibrations.
TASK: Do one good, totally selfless deed per day, where there is no thought of yourself or of any reward for your actions.
2. JUDGEMENT of others: STOP all judgement and backbiting of other people. Refrain from all gossip and negative talk about other people as this will only lower your Spiritual Vibration and cause you to have ill health.
TASK: Listen to your own speech and language. Are you saying negative things in each moment? Is your focus on other people and how they are not doing what you want them to do? Instead, focus only on yourself and not what others ‘should’ be doing.
3. SILENCE: When we sit in silence, we can hear the voice of our Spirit or our intuition. Once you have practiced this, you will become used to hearing amazing advice from your higher self, that can assist you with your Spiritual Enlightenment.
TASK: Spend just 5 minutes a day in total silence – get used to being with your own thoughts and without outside distractions. Eventually as you sit in silence, your own thoughts will fade away and you will begin to hear the wonderful ideas of your intuition.
4. BE MORE CONSCIOUS: Learn to be conscious of your every thought moment to moment. Notice how positive or negative your thought patterns are. Do you always expect the worst to happen to you or are you expecting your highest good?
TASK: Once you begin to notice your thoughts and the feelings you have with them, you can now change them as they happen. if a negative thought pops into your head, change it in that moment to a positive affirmation or to what you would prefer the situation to be like.
5. DO YOUR BEST: With any task at hand, do your best and leave the rest to the Universe or God or whoever you call the higher self. This is about the art of letting go and allowing the perfectly evolving universe to help you with your tasks.
TASK: Letting go of total control is part of being on the Spiritual Path. Practice taking a few minutes a day or when anything is upsetting you just to allow it to be what it is. Do not place any judgment on the situation, just let it be. Make sure you feel that you have done you best with the situation and then try to let it go. As soon as you achieve letting go, miracles happen…try it and see!
REMINDER: Be grateful not only for all the good things you have in your life, but for each problem that comes your way as well. Every problem is a golden opportunity to Practice your Spiritual Skills in solving it.
