Comprehending Spiritual

Understanding the connection between physical laws and spiritual laws is only what we perceive. As our perceptions grow we have greater enlightenment. We all hope that there is “one truth”- “one path” – “one faith” some foundational understanding that we will grasp and when we do we will be done growing and know all that we need to know.

My current position on this … that will never happen in our life time, because our universe is expanding and so are we. So even if we read every word ever penned as a spiritual writing we’re only getting the perception of the one writing it. We need to continue to discover more and more of OUR OWN perceptions. Using our external physical senses and our internal spiritual sensations we expand our own revelation.

On whatever WE focus OUR attention on, trusting OUR OWN perceptions on the specific subject matter is how WE grow. We should examine the perceptions of others to expand our own, but in the end you should only trust your own conclusions. If we’ve adopted another person’s written view and stopped comparing it with a contrasted view we stop our own growth. We can always grow more by exploring more … “Keep on seeking” … “Keep on asking” … those who seek find, those who ask get the answers. Those who believe they have all the answers are at a stand-still … they are not growing at all.

Each one of us perceives the Spiritual/Creator/Upper Light/Nature/God differently. Initially we are exposed to our world by our parents, family and community. How do we continue to grow? I suggest that it’s according to one’s individual desires and internal qualities; these drive a person to explore and sense himself / herself in relation to the world around them.

The source or energy, Creator/God no one has seen (Exodus 33:20). Meaning I never feel it directly; I perceive myself in relation to Him the “Upper Light.” I reveal this “Upper Light” or discover Him only within myself, as I do all of nature. You sense the physical as if it were happening on the outside; when in fact all we ever experience is inside of us. Our entire world exists inside of us.

To illustrate … a person blind cannot experience a beautiful sunset; or if deaf they cannot experience a beautiful symphony. They can explore the attainments of others by reading about such beauty but it’s not their attainment. They are left experiencing the reflected Light of the experience of the one writing about it.

Our spiritual attainment is also inside of us, if we read spiritual writings we experience the reflected Light from those who wrote it, but as we focus inside ourselves we experience our own attainment. As we grow our own spiritual awareness we are given increased perceptions … a “sixth sense” so to speak. This spiritual advancement adds a whole new meaning to the miracles described in Isaiah 35:5.

So what Light can you share? You can only speak about it based on your own experience. It is inside of you and in your desires, the more you desire the Light the more you can experience it. So look within and share what you find there, that’s how together we can reveal and experience truth.

About Seeker ...

A seeker and an explorer ... looking at life as a gift from my Maker. Never under estimating what it offers, never blocking what it wants to give, rather accepting and sharing the pleasures of life bestowed upon us all. I choose to keep my identity below the radar so my words are not polluted by the judgement of knowing me as a Human Being with all the same faults, frailty and defects as you. ~ Peace

One Response to Comprehending Spiritual

    What a great explanation of the spiritual quest. I believe that our internal lives are the classroom, our experiences the curriculum. You cannot grow spiritually unless you examine your feelings, desires, motivations, and responses to every experience, particularly the most painful and difficult. People who go through life accepting without question whatever their chosen spiritual leader expounds, cheat themselves out of the unique lessons they are here to learn through personal experience. To grow, you must move forward using your current strengths/knowledge applied to your own unique circumstances. You find what doesn’t feel right, and you correct it, building on your spiritual base. Thanks for the great article, keep up the good work.
