“What is the benefit of spiritual exploration? Let’s be realistic, is it going to help you live your life?
Most people would say no, it’s not going to help me make more money, it’s not going to help me find the right partner, I’m not going to be able to get a better house, I’m not going to be able to get a better car. And to some degree they would be correct.
But when you start living a more spiritual life, you start fretting less, you start judging less, you start fearing less. And so the resultant is, the choices you make lead you to more opportunities.
And if you have more opportunities, then it’s up to you to decide which way you want to go.
It’s like fishing in a pond. If leading a spiritual life moves you to fish in a pond that has more fish in it, then you have a better chance of catching a fish than if you fish in the pond you’ve always fished in.
So from that perspective, it’ll give you that. It’ll also give you a sense of comfort, consistency, constancy, content[ment] – certainly content[ment] – and you’ll find that there’ll be a certain sense of peace within you, that sense of peace and tranquility that you always look for but have difficulty finding. And if you do find it, have difficulty hanging onto it.
The more you open yourself to your own spirit, the more you lead a life of spiritual benefit, then the more you’ll find that sense of contentment and tranquility and peace. And then you’ll be able to, regardless of the circumstances because let’s face it, life is such that many, many circumstances occur, you’ll still be able to navigate through the circumstances without fear, without a great deal of judgment, and certainly without guilt that you’ve been using to propel yourselves forward until now.
And as a result of that, you’ll share with others and surround yourself with individuals that are of similar nature. Not so much the individuals that fear and judge. Oh, you’ll have those but they won’t affect you the same way. You’ll realize the illusions they live under and you’ll allow them their illusions, but you won’t participate in them. And so the resultant is your life will be one of simplicity as well.
So, some of the buzzwords are simplicity, tranquility, peace, contentment. Those are the buzzwords that you can start thinking about that will lead you to realizing that the movement towards spirituality is truly expansive.
Because most individuals in this day and age, though they would convince themselves that they have peace, tranquility, contentment, simplicity, in actual fact when you look at their lives, it doesn’t really exist. It’s an illusion, it’s a perspective of it. Often times it is covered in fear and judgment and guilt. And it forms a part of their daily living.
So that’s the probabilities for you. Now, the choice is, of course, do you choose to do it?”
