Spiritual Pilgrim

an_incredible_journey

I am a spiritual pilgrim, a spiritual traveller, travelling through time.

The journey is long – it seems to go on and on to beyond.

Where am I going to?
A gentle response, from deep within the soul, utters – It is a pilgrimage from myself back to me.

It is an incognito journey I take to find myself. A journey I take alone, that no-one else can see or understand.
It happens in this moment, and in every moment that passes by. The journey is rooted within myself – within the active experience of my thoughts, feelings and emotions.
The happiness and joy, the stress and anger, the friend and the enemy, the bonus and the challenge – these, and more, are all scenes and side scenes that I pass through each day. They are on the journey but are not the destination.

I must journey on and just let them pass…and they will. I don’t need to pack them up and carry them on my journey – that would just be excess baggage that will make the journey more difficult.

Let me not stop. Let me let go and continue my pilgrimage back to me.

Om Shanti

I am a spiritual being

I

I am a spiritual being – a spirit, a soul, an energy that is not visible to the human eye.

The thoughts and feelings that are generated through my mind form a layer of subtle energy around the soul. This is then expressed in a gross form of energy we recognise as words and action. When words and actions are expressed through the body they enable me to build relationships with the world, people and situations in the world.

I move from a core truth of my subtle existence into a gross form and personality and a physical existence. And over time I learn to live in the reality of this outer most world that I myself manifested – believing it to be real and true.

However this manifestation is not ‘I’ at all because I am the spirit, the unseen soul at the very core.I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….

I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form.

In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form. I am

I am spirit.

Renunciation of what?

happinessRenunciation is not so much about ‘giving up’ but more about ‘letting go’. Letting go of the ‘need’ to have something or someone or to be somewhere.

What ties me down is not the ‘thing’ itself but the ‘need’ within the self that surfaces for that. It is not about what I have or what I enjoy, but the ‘need’ for that in order to keep me emotional, mentally and physically comfortable and safe. It is an indication that there is some degree of dependency.

It may not be easy to identify, but when I am able to renounce this ‘need’ which lies behind ‘things’, and when I am able to let go of that ‘need’, then I set myself free spiritually.

This, to me, is true renunciation.

The Traveller

An_incredible_journey

I am a traveller on this journey of life. Where am I going to, do I know?

I the traveller, the soul, have travelled through life and perhaps through many lives.
How long is this journey – do I even know my destination?

I bring myself back to focus on this moment in time and I reflect on want I truely want in life. In this moment, from deep within my soul, I hear the voice of my conscience calling out to me – all I want is to be happy, peaceful, loved and content.

If this is what I want and need then can I not achieve that in this moment now? why the journey through time and space?

I, the soul, am originally and eternally the essence of love, peace and happiness. This is my spiritual truth, But in my search for the same in the physical world, I have travelled far, far away from my own eternal essence.

And this journey, of I the traveller, is to return me back to myself again.

As I realise this eternal truth, the universe echoes back to me with my every breath – As I was, so shall I become.

 

Om Shanti

The Reality of Me

I

When I ask myself the question – Who am I? How do I choose to respond?

The ‘I’ that I am familiar with is based on many levels of identities.

There is the physical identity – the ‘roles’ I play, the titles I have and the identity by which others know me – my relationships etc.

I also identify myself as a personality – the way I express and experience myself. This ‘self’ has been created over time, through the experiences and learning I have acquired in life. It has been developed through events and the environments that have influenced me in life – culture, society, schooling etc.

The least obvious one I connect with is my real identity – one based on spiritual awareness. In this awareness I know ‘I’ exist – the conscience and conscient self. Not the role but the one whom the role belongs to, not the body but the one whom the body belongs to, not the personality but the one whom the personality belongs to. I am the one that holds all of these but am not any of them.

So really ‘Who I am?’

I am energy, the life force, the soul. The one that is eternal light and life. How much am I aware of the real ‘I’ and how often do I understand and experience the real ‘I’?

Unless I learn to understand and experience the real ‘I’, my ‘being and doing’ will continue to be based on my physical identity and my personality, developed though life experiences. In fact I will remain in denial of my own reality and furthermore deny myself the experience of being that.

Can I experience myself as a soul?

 

Om Shanti

How ‘stretchy’ is my mind?

whoami

How well am I able to juggle and manage challenges, situations, time bound tasks – especially when they all come to me at once?

Is my mind like a dry brittle branch which when bent snaps immediately? Or is it like a mature branch that copes well with bending up to a certain point but nevertheless snaps? Or am I like a young branch, elastic and flexible with the ability to withstand storms that push and pull time and time again?

To develop and maintain the elasticity of my mind let me fill it with the rich nutrition of spiritual knowledge, cleanse and exercise it regularly by sitting in solitude and engage it in work that will uplift the self and others.

Once there is clarity and acceptance of who I am and what my task is and in turn I nurture my mind appropriately, It will definitely cooperate with me in responding to the many challenges and situations that I am faced with.

 

Om Shanti

The Spiritual Wave

home

Our atmosphere is full of invisible waves of energy. We may be aware of the natural forms of energy like light and sound. There are also energy waves emitted from technology – computers, mobiles, microwave etc. And then of course the energy waves we generate with our thoughts and feelings.

If we move through the highways and byways of these waves we will find more subtle spiritual waves of energy that take us beyond the physical world and into a world of pure, powerful spiritual energy. An energy that is empowering, fulfilling and satisfying.

Once we are aware of this energy force, it takes only a second to take the journey and connect with it. The challenge is to navigate the mind through an atmosphere that is congested with other miscellaneous energy waves, align with the spiritual wave and stabilise long enough to absorb that energy. With regular practice there is no doubt this can be achieved.

Let me start my practice now.

I invite my mind to take a journey. Like a loving child, it quietens down – eager to start the journey. With concentrated focus, I visualise my destination….a world of pure energy. My mind cooperates and I move away from all distractions and congestion of the physical atmosphere, and I slowly move into the spiritual realm of pure spiritual energy. I find myself surfing on spiritual waves, absorbing that energy. This is the spiritual realm, my spiritual home, nirvana.

 

Om Shanti
