Question: Beginning the journey of Spirituality

Brother, Often concept or so called knowledge for many satisfy the egoic mind, but it is only some who go beyond the egoless stage and truly realize the meaning of our true being, question here is what would be the fundamental and first step for someone who is beginning their journey of spirituality? How can this be applied in daily life that will deepen this experience?

Dear soul,
Thank you for your great question!
From my experience, nothing could happen unless there is the realization that all changes start from within and that there is a need to change from within if there is no experience of serenity and joy in our lives on a continuous basis. Suffering is not “normal.”

That realization may take a long time. In the meantime, some may find relief or a palliative time through beliefs, religious dogmas and devotional practices, rituals, etc. All of that is an important step for many to spend time in knowing the self. However, many as well will stay in that “soothing relief” all their lives hoping that God or a ritual will help them reach “illumination.”

Paradoxically, that Divine help only comes when we help ourselves first; when in our minds and hearts, reaching a more conscious state of being; becomes our life for the common good of all.

When we live life with gratefulness and appreciation of all that exists, we are applying practically that realization of inner change. That experience can only deepen into a harmonious unity with all.

Best wishes!

    A lot of great words for this precise article. It is all so true. I especially like your point that the Divine help usually waits until we focus on the self-help. Have an excellent day!

      Indeed, it is a matter of experience.
      The Old testament has a verse about this:
      Joshua 1:9
      “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

      Benjamin Franklin mentioned: “God helps those who help themselves.” and the Hua Hu Ching expressed this beautifully on verse 59.
      “If you wish to become a divine immortal angel, then restore the angelic qualities of your being through virtue and service. This is the only way to gain the attention of the immortals who teach the methods of energy enhancement and integration that are necessary to reach the divine realm. These angelic teachers cannot be sought out. It is they who seek out the student.”
