I have been pondering this topic a lot lately.
Spiritual Awakening is defined very simply as;
A place in time that marks the beginning of your initiation on your spiritual path.
We then discover while walking along our spiritual path, through our own spiritual awakening.
That the pursuit of money, material possessions and all that the world teaches us
is the path to true happiness and success, becomes something that no longer seems as important.
Our spiritual eyes open, and we discover, understanding, love, compassion, empathy, and kindness,
are truly the best riches we can carry with us along this path of 'spiritual awakening'.
The very process of waking up spiritually, may be something you have been doing from your
earliest recollection or you may have woken up one day and asked yourself, what is my purpose?
There has to be more to life than this! Or maybe, you had a series of undeniable synchronicities, signs?
Maybe you had an experiences that shook every fiber of your being, and turned your world upside down?
Perhaps the loss of a loved one, a friend, a pet? Piece by piece, it may have felt like your life had fallen
apart, and only ashes remained. I have learned that the fires that I have walked through, and the ashes that
remained, brought me to a place of higher understanding. Yes, the fires of life burn, they are not seen by those
around us, yet, we know they are real, we experience them. When we walk out of these personal fires.
We emerge each time as new person, a transformed person, a person who not only understands themselves but, we also seek
to empathize with those that have been forged through these fires, and have walked out, on the other side.
Totally reborn, totally prepared to pick up the diamonds of wisdom that the fires created and ashes left behind!
Each and every one of us is walking this path of 'Spiritual Awakening'. It is a process that is life long, no matter where
you are in your own personal 'spiritual awakening', please know, you are never alone, and nothing you could tell any one of us
here in this community, would surprise us in any way! Things are not always what they appear to be.
We see things in a whole new light, we experience life in a whole new way. We all do this, each and every day!
I will be writing more about my own personal 'spiritual awakening', in the days to come.
I do this because, I feel that we are all student's and we are all teachers. There is no way, one person could have all of the answers!
We work together, we put the pieces together as we go.
One day, the puzzle will come together perfectly.
When this happens, we can only imagine our total joy and bliss at the wonderful masterpiece our life became!
Keep walking your 'spiritual path'! It is yours, and you are exactly where you are supposed to be!
Peace, Love and Light!
