The Secret of Spiritual Growth.

Developing Your Spiritual Self

I find it difficult to separate our spirituality from our physicality, emotionality and our mental and psychological make-up. The thing about spirituality is that it has become a fashion rather than a primal part of our lives and is thought of as something to obtain rather than to be. It’s tragic that so many religious wars have been fought, lives and loves lost and so much confusion has been created about this aspect of our make-up because we have lost touch with our spiritual center.
There is a need for us to reclaim our wholeness and our innate power, but there is no real formula to reclaim this centre as it is a personal journey of discovery. It’s the way you live your life from one second to the next. To me spirituality is about balance and awareness. It’s about knowing yourself, questioning everything and becoming all you are capable of becoming as a unique expression of the whole – and as such it is a really by necessity a selfish way of being. It requires the setting of boundaries, of being disciplined, responsible and authentic. Trouble is, most of us don’t have the commitment to live so honestly or the time to do the work that this task requires.
Above the door of the Temple of Hermatic is a sign saying “Know Thyself”. It is one of the greatest challenges anybody can undertake in their lives on a road that asks everything from you: determination, commitment, creativity, surrender and most of all spirituality. What you get back is the self-knowledge and the power to be and to change. Magic. It is said that knowledge is power but knowledge and power both require balance. Eventually, knowledge and power become wisdom and this power becomes a very humbling thing. Knowledge is only knowledge when you truly know it from within. External knowledge cannot be trusted.
Many of the magical traditions, such as Wicca, Pagonism, Druidry, and even Buddhsim have been designed for an initiate to progressively work their way through various grades or levels of self-knowledge or self-realization. The training usually involves attuning and aligning with the various elements of nature and to become one with the universal flow that is life. Every grade becomes a building block for the next, where you develop certain abilities and your realisations deepen, as you sharpen your senses along the way. If you don’t decide to work under the umbrella of one of these traditions, dedicate some time each day to go within and develop some kind of daily meditation practice to open the pathways of your mind to the multitude of dimensions that await your awareness.
Although meditation and visualization are really important tools to master, if you make every act and thought a meditation you begin to see the sacred in every part of life. By simply shifting your attention this way ordinary acts like eating become a sacred act as it is feeding your temple and providing your spirit with place of beauty in which to reside. The ordinary becomes extra-ordinary with a flick of a switch in your mind, by changing your perspective on every moment. You will create change within when you are sleeping, working, making love, communicating, working, playing, breathing and even arguing.
Start with a short period of time and with vigilance increase it to a way of being and watch your world transform.  © Jyoti Eagles
