We have started to understand that we need to re-look at everything entirely in life. At some point in our lives there will come a time when we need to be born again to life. Our first birth is only where it stated. It is incredible how everything in the world and the universe has two parts to it. Including ourselves. Our task in this life is to emerge from the physical into the spiritual. From form to no form.
We are born operating almost entirely from the physical. We then become more psychological and emotional when the body allows. Then, when the mind and emotions allow, we will become more spiritual. No one knows exactly what our spiritual selves entail. We don’t know where they come from or where they go, but we know they are there. Eventually, that is, because it takes time to get still enough and equipped enough to comprehend its presence. One thing we do know in the first half of life is that we are not capable of bearing the burden of being an emotional being. We learn that capability. We master self regulation only when we are ready. Perhaps you know adult children today? They are a good example of emergence and non-emergence of a higher self. These people have not yet let go of childhood. They are getting their pleasure from acting and behaving like children because that’s how they got what they wanted as a child. Growing up is as much neurological as it is physical, spiritual and emotional. Contemplation is seeing this reality exactly the way it is. That is why we teach people how to practice contemplation. #contemplation #spiritualawakening #spirituality
