The Path To Enlightenment

The path to spiritual enlightenment is a long one. Full of twists and turns, surrounded by the weeds of uncertainty and misdirection, it begins in the shade of ambiguity and novice. As we travel down it and turn the corner, our lives become illuminated, no longer obscured by the shadows of doubt.

In recent years, as prosperity has spread throughout our globe, the shallowness of materialism has usurped traditional faiths. Motorbikes, IPhones, Flat-screen TVs, and the latest fashion has replaced temples, mosque, Holy scriptures, and prayer beads. The result is a moral decay that poisons human interaction, breeds selfishness and contempt, damages the spirit, and threatens the Earth.

How can we move away from the turmoil of materialism without reverting to the regression of dogma? By realizing that we are each made up of body, mind and spirit; and that we are all interrelated to each other and the cosmos in general. By accepting this fact, we can then raise awareness and consciousness. This will make you happy and successful. You must purify yourself of ego and doubt, so that you may live life in balance and harmony.

Knowledge is the key to enlightenment. Remember the Source, and you will know where to go. Remember Earth, and you will know where your roots are.

    1. As for your first question, everyone has their own level of interpretation of the topics discussed. Spirituality and living better are complex subjects and each person expresses themselves in their own way. We have a SpiritualityQuest page and a SpiritualityQuest group on Facebook and you can follow me on Twitter at @TomHowardSQ.

    2. Your comment, “materialism has usurped traditional faiths. Motorbikes, IPhones, Flat-screen TVs, and the latest fashion has replaced temples, mosque, Holy scriptures, and prayer beads. The result is a moral decay that poisons human interaction, breeds selfishness and contempt, damages the spirit, and threatens the Earth.”

      This reads as highly judgmental and seems to lack a fundamental Spiritual attainment; that being that the entire human experience is valid and part of the development of the whole. There will always be a sharper and sharper contrast as we pursue greater balance. Every height of achievement will be challenged by deeper and deeper contrast, those who can acknowledge and relate to all experiences without judgment are true Spiritual Masters.

      For those who agree with you and your post. I invite you, with love and respect, to embrace and hold in high regard the souls that cling to materialism, that’s where you will achieve the most spiritual growth for your own soul. I would equally implore those who thrive in the latest-trendy materialistic and fleshly pursuits, also with love and respect, to embrace those who hold onto cultural traditions that built civil respect and consideration among humankind, this will be their path to enlightenment.

      When both you and ‘info beasiswa jepang 2016’ can unite and resonate in agreement you will be on the right track growing together. You need each other equally to reach your Spiritual ideals. Those who can remain unbiased and able to flow with all ideas and all contrasting viewpoints, they are the few who have actually obtained Spiritual Unity, they are the Masters of the Spiritual Quest.
