Spiritual Realisation

Spirituality has nothing to do with a person piousness or morality, but a belief in certain ideas. Some people interchange Spiritual Awakening with Spiritual Realisation. Whatever you want to call it, the undermentioned are paramount:

Human Being Has A Soul

Human being has a soul where the spirit lies. This Spirit in man is an area where the Divine part of God can connect to man, (if a man so wishes). This connection allows mankind to receive direction for his life path. The purpose of this connection is for man to receive direction for his life path and gain full potential on earth before returning FULLY CONSCIOUS to the abode of the spirits.

The Purpose Of Earthly Existence

We are all equal, with the capability to strive towards perfection.

The belief that the purpose of earthly existence is to develop those virtues that we lack, and learn the way of love, with further experiencing towards perfection. Because we each have different virtues to learn and experience, the Grace of The Almighty places us in the MOST SUITABLE place (country and family) that best support our learning.

An Earthly Existence

Mankind present earthly existence is one of several, (and depending on each individual) of his/her existence. However, it is but a short phase of our entire existence. Our physical bodies which we will shed (and of course disposed of) is a vehicle that is necessary to navigate the earthly life. Our real or core person, the spiritual man is what passes over to the beyond after our earthly death.

The Real Cause Of Conflict

All lessons are provided for us according to our need. As long as we follow the dictate of the spirit, there will always be harmony among our body soul and spirit. However, if this harmony is displaced or lost, either by our own will or the persuasion of others, then trouble or problems, (both physical and spiritual) will start to show its ugly head. This will definitely be challenging for us.

The harmony can be lost or displaced when we cease being human, by the greedy pursuit of earthly pleasures, not having compassion and being wicked, which will result in losing the essential connection to THE DIVINE, and of course its guardian and direction, and failure to obey the dictates of the inner spirit or the intuition. The departure or loss of the Divine connection is due to the fact that the Divine cannot, and will not have anything to do with the evil or darkness.

Unity Of The Whole

The Unity of the Whole means that we are indeed of one body, in being that whatever good or evil is being done to one, affects the whole, i. e. each and every one of us. So if we have sufficient love for others, there’s no way we can hurt them, (at least deliberately).

Strive for balance & harmony in life.

All diseases or issues that affect many of us like pride, cruelty, hate, selfishness, and greed are those that are in disagreement with the unity of the whole, and as such will hurt us.

We must acknowledge that everyone is created just like us, with the same love and care. Each has the capability for perfection that we all aspire to. Life is not cruel to any of us. It wants above all that we travel with joy and purpose in our hearts. To strive to do our part faithfully, and that we will leave the world better than we met it.

The Message

The message of the teachers of mankind is ‘TO FORSAKE ALL AND FOLLOW ME‘. We may ask what does this mean to an ordinary man? It means to obey completely, the demand of the still small voice within us. This demand is within the place we find ourselves, lowly or high up, there’s always guardian and direction. All we are expected to do is to our part dutifully and cheerfully too.

Spirituality & Wellness

Spirituality or Spiritual Realisation is believing in the continuity of the soul after physical death. A belief system in a Higher Being that controls our destiny in a loving way. Spirituality is NOT a religion but transcends religious beliefs and practices. Before we can narrate the correlation between Spirituality and Wellness, we need to outline the fundamental truth about what Spirituality is. Spiritual growth is hungering after God, The Almighty Father, the creator of all things.

Man Is A Spirit

The Spirit in man is indestructible and lives forever, or until an appointed time of eternal judgement, where the spirit would have determined where he is going to, i.e. eternal life or eternal damnation (death). This Spirit is but a spark of The Almighty that resides in man. Each will decide whether they will take the path to eternal damnation or to everlasting joy, for God Almighty has given them FREE choice.

The most important belief is that this Spark of the Almighty God is the guide all man needs to navigate the ocean of unknown in his sojourn on earth. The life on earth is but a school, and we do repeat many times until we reach that stage of perfection when we really do not need to come back again.

In other to quickly learn the lesson, and prevent repeated earth lives, we need to make use of our intuition, which is the Spark of God directing our path. This direction can only be in love, and not otherwise. To help us, our circumstances and environment are chosen for us, all in love. Such choices are to help us get rid of bad behaviours and cultivate selfless virtues that only treat others with love and respect, irrespective. If all work well, accordingly to what God intended for us, then all organs of our body will be in harmony with the spirit, so no illness can occur.

Why Conflict Shows It’s Ugly Head

As long as the spirit in man/woman and his/her personalities are in harmony, then it is all joy, peace, happiness and good health for man/woman. But if man/woman decides to walk his/her own way, contrary to the path laid down or dictated by his/her spirit, either by his own tendency to worldly desires, or persuasion of others, then conflict and disharmony occur. This conflict and disharmony is the cause of illness, joy and unhappiness.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

We mentioned above that as long as there is harmony, there is happiness, peace, joy and good health because this is simply the natural order of things. The Almighty Father wants us to live a life of all joy and contentment. Therefore we are placed in an Earthly condition and or situation that best serve us. No matter our earthly vocation, lowly servants or monarch, landlord or peasant, rich or poor, as long as we listen and follow our intuition, we will be able to learn the lesson and experience what is necessary for our spiritual development.

Separation Is Impossible

Every individual of us is a part of this Eternal Spirit Spark. Although we are each an individual, in his/her own right, yet we are part of a whole, and therefore no separation is possible. This is known as the UNITY OF THE WHOLE. So in fact whatever we did to the others, good or bad is done unto us, and comes back to us in a way. So indeed cruelty to others brings disharmony and leads to illness.

Why Suffering May Be Beneficial

Let me first say this, and I mean it with all sincerity, IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR A PERSON STRIVING TOWARDS THE LIGHT TO SUFFER, and neither it is God’s intention to make mankind suffer. Sorrow and affliction which plague, mankind both saints and sinners today are not part of God’s Divine plan for mankind, but rather man has exercised the free will wrongly to cause this pain. We can define suffering as a form of mental and or physical pain, but it is still personal to each individual. This is because there are people who can endure much more pain than others.

Suffering As A Form Of Priviledge

However a person may redeem some former sin by suffering, but only when he has clearly understood the reason for his suffering, and humbly accepted it as the did, for instance, the penitent thief on the cross, who begged Jesus for forgiveness, and to be remembered in eternal Kingdom.

When one clearly understands one’s suffering in this way, it allows room for spiritual growth. This means suffering is not an inevitable part of one’s growth, but in suffering, one does grow thereby. If we accept that there is a purpose for our lives, and we are not in conflict with this purpose, then, there is no need for suffering. However, if we rebel against this, and believe rather in our own opinion and selfish idea, then suffering is bound to occur. This is because spiritual life is striving towards perfection, and can involve offering ourselves by way of sacrifice, which most times is not palatable, therefore is again a part of suffering.

Anything Growing Requires Change

Everything to do with Spiritual attainment demands renunciation of one kind or another. Even if we do this willingly, it is still a form of sacrifice on our part. When we accept what comes to us, with no bitterness, then we are using our talents wisely. If we feel really bad about it, it is alright to ask for GRACE to endure and get on with it. Your spirit has the capability to deal with it, so acceptance is what your mind needs.

Give yourself what life demands of you without hitting back, or find an excuse or complain. Rather draw on the inner strength which is always available, and by so doing you will be able to serve with love and gratitude those whom you have been called upon to serve.

If a person experienced tribulation and or sorrow so severe, it can refine the soul. In that, this hardship can awaken the finer intuition enough to be sensitive to THE LIGHT. This LIGHT vibration is always present in the UNIVERSE but has not been noticed especially from people who are in pursuit of earthly pleasures. However, a long period of distress, that humbles a broken soul can awaken the vibration and allow this connection. The connection of a broken man in wanting to alleviate the suffering will wish to be closer to God. He may further this wish by prayer and willingness to do the right thing.

How to receive help

The cry for help can only be heard when man directs their thoughts and interest from mundane things, but rather with earnest and humility seek spiritual power. Whenever one’s thought and ways uphold justice and compassion, he will experience peace and joy.

One must be willing to practice this justice and compassion in all it’s undertakings, whatever they may be, whether they concern family, vocation and relationships.

How to react to suffering

First and foremost is to understand THE TRUTH in life that most tragic events in life (at large) and in our lives are only temporary, and they work according to the CREATION LAW OF THE UNIVERSE. This law operates in LOVE OF THE ALMIGHTY, in that it strives towards perfection in mankind. Our understanding of this truth will help us from being depressed by whatever we are going through and give us the courage to soldier on and scale through.

What we are saying here is to develop that individuality and free ourselves from all worldly influences, working and listening only to our intuition (the voice of the soul) for direction. In this way, we take responsibility for our actions and decision always.

Do Not Look Back, Close The Cycle

There are certain situations in life that we too know and are aware that the game is up, the cycle is ending. Closing cycles or whatever name we may allude to it, ‘Ending Chapter’, ‘The End’, or ‘Shutting Doors’. Some of us are rather stubborn and want it to continue. This, unfortunately, is living in a phase that has ended one way or the other.

Know When A Phase Has Ended

We must be on a guard to know when a phase in one’s life has ended. This is because if we stubbornly cling to such a relationship, we will lose our harmony and close up the opportunity to explore what the future has in store for us. There are many examples of such closing cycles, like job ending, relationship going sour, moving from one country to another, leaving a family house etc. Indeed, the world ‘cycle’ is an emergent market creation, transformation and destruction. There could be many variations of them.

Put Your Intuition To Work

You can keep wondering the reason for closure, or you can go into your closet, and tune into your inner self to show the direction. How do we treat the unexpected, trying to figure it out? I want to tell you today that we don’t always have to have an answer, nor do you always have to understand, especially if it doesn’t make sense. Leave it alone, otherwise, you just get frustrated, bitter and confused.

Wanting to know the reason might not all be positive. We can be stressed in the process and create a standstill, not understanding what is going on, yet unable to embrace the future. We do not need to clog our hearts with bad memories, rather we need to release them, detach yourself so to speak, and let them off because, in life, we sometimes lose, but the most important is NOT to lose the lesson.

Don’t build on a false hope of reconciliation

A Measure Of Affection

Spiritual life and love include a measure of our affection without the need for reciprocity. We create disharmony in our life by refusing to accept a relationship that has broken down or decisions that are awaiting an ideal moment. So stop tunning in an emotional TV of the past, and watching over and over again, reminiscing how much you gave or how much you suffered. All these poison the soul. We should not expect appreciation in whatever we determine to give out.

New dawn can only open up for us if a chapter closes. We need to realise that our involvement with that person or thing is only a habit that will soon wear out. Remember nothing is irreplaceable. Things do pass on, and the best thing we can do is to let them. One way we can help ourselves is to give away items that may bring such uneventful memory back, e.g. souvenirs, albums and other material things. This means we need to de-clutter our hearts and all items that are attached to the bad memory.

Close the cycle, not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance on your part, but because it is no longer useful or serves its purpose in your life. Shut the door, wipe the slate clean and shake off the dust. Let us move into that wonderful person we are meant to be. The future is full of all possibilities if we let it.

A Desire For Vengeance

The desire for vengeance is part of man, but we must realise that there are reward and punishment in God’s order of things. He wants us to leave revenge to him, but to work towards conquering evil by good works, even to those who harm us.

Leave the past behind

We should realise that there’s no enemy for us, they are all our teachers, teaching us to overcome vengeance and prevent the evil of bitterness from overtaking us. Whatever we are today is a result of our choices in the past. Take responsibility for those mistakes of the past that brought about the hardship. Learn from them and move on. Let go of the mistake, but don’t lose the lesson, and be careful of your subsequent choices.

We have to believe everything will be fine and need to move on. Without taking this bold positive step and action, it’s going to be a long day of loneliness and desperation. Sometimes we know exactly what to do but scared to take action, by being in denial. Let us remember that we live our lives before the person or things come into our lives, and not build on the false hope of reconciliation.

We also need to be careful in what we expect from others, those we meet along our life’s journey. It is best NOT to expect anything from others by allowing them their freedom to choose what they want to do with our friendship, but rather offer a hand of friendship, lift them up in a time of their need and difficulty. All whom we meet or are connected with during our journey is a fellow traveller, making this great spiritual earth-life journey, towards perfection.

Avoiding Regret

If we know the truth of our earth life, then we know that we must avoid regret at all cost throughout this journey. Why? Because no great change, especially spiritual change and development is ever made without some challenges, i.e. falls and faults. These are the actual experiences that empower us more for our future challenges, allowing us to overcome easily next time.

We must press forward onwards and forwards, never regerting and never looking back, for the past of even an hour is behind us, and the glorious future with its blazing light is ever before us. Fear has no place in this, we must work to remove fear from the mind.

Cycles In Creation

There are examples of cycles in creation. Light and darkness, where light is essential to appreciate the darkness. In the commercial market, we appreciate the high and the low of stock and commodity markets, the crash and the emergence of corporate giants.

In life, cycles involve winning and losing, strength and weakness, birth and death, seedtime and harvest.

The rising and setting of the sun, the seasonal changes in nature, i.e. winter, summer, autumn and spring, all rising and ending according to eternal law in creation.

The Lost Way To Spiritual Freedom

Years ago in the early days, individuals desiring Spiritual recognition, went through one kind of religious form or the other. These religious form become the way of worship, which gradually transform into Churches, Mosques, Temples and by whatever name people wants to call them.

The religious teachers then seeking adherence and faithful support of worshippers become laws unto themselves. They enact rules and regulations governing followers’ interactions in and outside the worship centres. Some of these laws were very rigid, like marrying only from their denomination, NOT BEING ABLE TO DIVORCE, & rules regarding managing your money that includes tithes and offerings. The laws were created with their (leaders) interpretation of what is right and moral in their (leaders) eyes, often taking scripts from religious books and trying to interprete them in a way they deemed right.

The Dissidents

There were therefore naturally some dissidents, who went ahead to challenge the ‘MASTERS’, with counter collaborations of course from the pros and the cons. It was at this time that Martin Luther King started his own revolution with Catholic Priests, his main contention being the Reverend Fathers prevented individuals from reading the Bible, preventing personal discernment and Spiritual development, in that these leaders’ constricted the spirit of believers through rigid thinking. This is the beginning of awareness of responsibility in mankind, where each and everyone is encouraged to think for himself/herself. Years later Doris Lessons wrote, ‘ THINK WRONGLY IF YOU PLEASE, BUT IN ALL CASES THINK FOR YOURSELF.

Today, the restriction of individual thinking ability vis a vis their service to others and their God is one of the greatest sin of religious worship centers. Many are chained to priests, pastors, churches, mosques, ideology and belief systems that are not necessarily right, but further enslave their free spirit. A good example is the 1978 mass murder/sucide of followers TV Evangelist Rev Jim Jones in Jonestown, Guyana.

A New Way Of Thinking

It cannot be over emphasised that a new way forward in all these, is that morals and standards are watered down so much. This is because things of the spirit have been explained by intellectual reasonings, that instead of people being drawn to God, they are further away from Him. The reasoning of the intellects unfortunately perish with the body, and therefore can never rise above to Spiritual Heights.

So the new way is mankind must be freed from the domination of the worldly matter, the intellect in particular, to the heights where mankind geninuely long for the TRUTH in humilty and sincererity. The right issue here is that each must be FREE to exercise his/her freewill for own development, not necessarily work in ties to others.

The new spiritual revolution is the longing for the whole truth of human existence in creation and the true recognition of God, which is above religion, denominations and creeds. This means in essence that individual must desire to seek, he must be willing to knock on a supposedly closed door, he must seek in all sincererity and humility, casting all dogmas and previous beliefs aside, and be opened to things of the Spirit. The good news is that ‘THOSE WHO SEEK, FINDS, AND THOSE WHO KNOCK, THE DOOR IS OPENED.

Conscious Living

Living consciously is rather explained than defined, as it pervades every aspect of one’s life. It involves the choices one has to make daily, regards virtually every minute to the minute second. Each time we are faced with choices, as simple as what to eat, what to wear, when and where to sleep, (assuming we are not in our usual home),  the TV program to watch, indeed one has to decide on every issue of living.

If we are to practice conscious living, we want to ensure that our choices align with the greater good, not only for ourselves but for others as well.  A good example of conscious living is NOT just eating anything to fill up our tummy when hungry. We want to ensure we eat healthily, a balanced and healthy meal, and not to over-eat to cause us un-necessary discomfort, weight gain and probably illness eventually. (Obesity related illness kill more than drug, alcohol and tobacco combined, a report by NHS UK – shocking eh?).

Cause & Effect Philosophy

Conscious living is down to earth understanding of cause and effect philosophy. Whatever one sows, one reaps, and as one reaps bushel (a full basket in harvesting), from small seeds sown, so is the effect, if not in ripples of the choices we make everyday. The effect of our choices will always come back to us, good or bad, we cannot escape it. And one has to take responsibility for all choices. How frightening!!!!!!

none
Decision within minutes – how feasible is that?

Now We Know, So What?

Now that we are aware that we cannot escape the effect of our choices coming back to us , I will say in thousands, what do we do then? Very simply indeed – and that is – LIVE CONSCIOUSLY WITH THE RESULT IN MIND. Live by making the right choices that compliment rather than destroy us. The failure of an average man is dealing with the result, not the causes. An average man is pre-occupied with materialism, and what only benefits him, selfish and uncaring attitude towards others. The result is the chaos we see today, in the individual man, in a nation, and indeed in the world as a whole.

Spiritual Consciousness does, however, have access to levels of power and authority which , properly used, are superior to and can overcome the limitations of the physical world.

You Are Free To Decide

But one is tied up to the result of one’s choice, for a very long time until the ripple effect of the choice run its course. That is the purpose of the website, to coach individuals in the effect of THE FREE WILL, so that we can all make informed choices that will help us live a more fulfilling and happy life. Enjoy the ride.
