Many are seeking spiritual truth these days.
There has never been a time to grow more spiritually in the history of the world than right now, and we are not meant to be kept in the dark.
Faith is meant to give way to knowing.
But how do we bridge that gap?
Metaphysics is that next step we are ALL destined to take some day.
The purpose of metaphysics is to take the devoted spiritual aspirant from the place of having faith that God is… to knowing God is.
Not just believing with all your heart and soul and mind that God exists and what God is like, but directly experiencing God and the spiritual realities of life for yourself.
To “see God face-to-face” while still living in a physical body.
This is not something that happens overnight.
There is no short cut to enlightenment.
It’s not ABC 123 and –BINGO!– you’re magically attuned and enlightened.
That’s because we don’t just go to heaven.
We GROW to heaven.
The metaphysical path is designed to help souls grow. It is the path of spiritual ascent.
The path of the mystic has been with us almost from the beginning. Its followers have kept the light of truth burning for humanity no matter how dark the times.
And that is still our job today and for the days ahead.
So if you are hearing the call to the metaphysical life, I hope you will let nothing stand in your way so that you may answer that call.
You must be discerning, certainly; but most importantly, be courageous!
I know it can be hard to know where to begin! There’s so much labeled as “metaphysics” that has little to do with what metaphysics is really all about. It can be a bit confusing and overwhelming!
Also, you may not find yourself in the most supportive environment at the moment for answering that call.
People you love may not understand what is happening within you.
But keep searching until you find what you’re looking for, and do what you must to respond to that inner prompting.
You will be so much more fulfilled for it, and the people and places around you will eventually adapt. Ultimately, they will benefit, too!
Your spiritual growth will only make you the best version of everything you are, every role you play. And as you continue to grow in the light, it can’t help but spill out to bless all those around you.
So seek your highest good, do good, and let them laugh!
The Good News. There are many “old souls” alive today who are meant to grow spiritually by leaps and bounds, much faster than usual because they are actually retracing steps they’ve taken in the past. These souls are meant to take the path of spiritual ascent metaphysics offers. Many are also meant to become genuine spiritual teachers themselves!
The Bad News. There are more students ready to take the path of ascent than there are qualified spiritual teachers ready to teach them. Without the teacher, a person simply cannot achieve that summit on their own.
This is the way it has always been. A person can go quite far on their own, but the teachers are an essential part of the spiritual process to help carry you all the way to the peak of your spiritual potential.
Here I must clarify what type of teacher I am talking about.
While there are many types of spiritual teachers–from inspirational to educational and everything in between–and they all have their special place and wonderful purpose, few spiritual teachers are qualified to help students with their path of spiritual ascent.
That’s because this requires the teacher to be a genuinely awakened mystic, and that isn’t accomplished through independent study, classes, a diet change, a lot of chanting and breathing, and some major meditation time.
You can study on your own every thing there is to study on faith, religion, God, metaphysics, mind and spirituality–study it all for years and years and even have it all memorized–and still not achieve the level of spiritual development required to lead other souls in their spiritual ascent.
If the process of enlightenment depended on knowledge alone, we’d be living in a time surrounded by enlightened souls! But knowledge isn’t enough.
Yes, a very keen intellect is an essential part of the process, but there are other things that have to happen. Some of these things have to be done for you by a teacher who has already climbed to the place you are striving to reach, and has thereby acquired the spiritual power to help you get there, too.
Bottomline, the process I am speaking of can take decades, and depends on many factors.
It’s the hardest thing a human soul will ever do, earning their enlightenment, but it is the most exciting and rewarding journey there is.
Are you ready?
With demand for awakened spiritual teachers exceeding supply, and the road being a challenging and lengthy one, there is an urgent need for some of us–who are actually called to become awakened spiritual teachers ourselves–to get on the ball!
But before those of us called to teach can be qualified to help others in their ascent, we have to attain that goal for ourselves.
To do that, you must study under a qualified awakened spiritual teacher yourself.
You are so needed! Who knows how many other beautiful people may be counting on you to have the courage and conviction to make this journey now, so you can help them make theirs?
I hope and pray that if the goal of becoming a spiritual teacher speaks to you, or you simply want to grow as much as you can in this life and just be an enlightened doctor, or enlightened businessman, or enlightened musician, or enlightened janitor or whatever you may be, that you too will find the teachers you were meant to study with to take you to the next level of your journey back to God.
If you feel you’re ready, you’ve had your spiritual awakening and are looking earnestly now (though you may not have realized what you were looking for!), it never hurts to pray that you be steered to just the right person at just the right time.
For it really is true…when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
If any of this speaks to you.
If you’ve had your spiritual awakening.
If you’re searching for the next steps for your spiritual growth.
Or most especially if you believe you might be meant to one day teach others…
I am just here to point the way for you.
I am just bringing these ideas to your awareness so you can take a look, consider them, seek the guidance of that still small voice, and judge for yourself.
As I write in this blog about my spiritual journey to that great goal of enlightenment and becoming a spiritual teacher, and work hard to live these spiritual teachings to the best of my ability and learn my life lessons, I look forward to traveling along with you on your own journey, my brother or sister in light!
