A few days ago, as I was listening to a Catholic priest talking about the origins of divine nature, I realized how much humanity has to offer from a spiritual standpoint.
Yet, we’re quite far from our true potential.
He also mentioned that the halo of saints depicted in various murals symbolizes their dedication toward divinity and that any person who truly turns to the divine light will eventually have such a halo on a spiritual level.
This had me thinking that saints, bodhisattvas, and other spiritual beings who reached enlightenment have this one element in common, regardless of their journey.
And that’s the halo – the aura around their head that stands as a testimony piercing the material world and entering the realm of divine light and wisdom.
The priest’s conversation also brought to mind one important quote from Baird Spalding’s book “Life and Teachings of the Masters of The Far East“:
“Holiness is the natural state of human beings.”
That hit hard.
Even the slightest thought that this statement could be real made any existing shade of ego go straight out the window…
Any bit of vanity dissolved…
And any thought of believing I did enough for me and others rapidly vanished.
Then, I shifted my attention to the present moment.
The truth is that we’re not saints. And, most likely, we’ll not achieve this level in one lifetime.
But we can bring the divine light into our minds, bodies, and spirits.
Regardless of how you choose to do that, if your goal is to tap into divine wisdom, the optimum path will emerge for you.
Still, it’s your responsibility to notice it and be determined to walk on it.
Nobody else can do it for you.
Obviously, this is not about religion or indoctrinated beliefs.
It rather addresses a state of mind and spirit that surpasses our self-made obstacles and material squandering.
For some, it may take a few years to reach this state, while for others, it may take a lifetime.
Don’t get me wrong, we all have earthly responsibilities, but this doesn’t mean we should succumb to them.
Better yet, you could try looking beyond and understand that the world you’re experiencing is a reflection of your current spiritual level.
You don’t need to isolate yourself to reach this level of perception.
In fact, if history is our teacher, you’ll notice that most spiritual seekers have evolved through the company of others.
Whether they were weighing them down or lifting them, there’s always a spiritual lesson to be learned from any interaction.
My point is that you don’t need to chase halo but to receive the necessary blessing to walk down your spiritual path. This is done by tapping into the web of universal life force energy step by step.
Embracing Spirituality As A Lifestyle
Still, I would encourage you to broaden your perspective and understand that each spiritual practice can be a path toward the three elements needed to reach enlightenment:
- Healing the emotional, mental, and inner-self levels. This helps remove self-made or exterior obstacles and negative programs;
- Changing your perception regarding your connection to both the physical and spiritual realms. More exactly, it means understanding that each event or person you meet in your life is the result of your current resonance and vibration;
- Becoming more in tune with the source of the universal life force energy and becoming a clean channel for divine wisdom, which in turn offers a healthy perception of your goals and role in this world;
Therefore, my advice is to experiment and live life through a spiritual lense. Allow yourself to be guided, be grateful for what you receive, and try to see the lessons that are in front of you.
Sounds good in theory, but how do you do that?
Interestingly enough, the following step would most likely be to gradually become more in tune with the universal energy.
Having a healthy and strong connection with the universal life force energy enables all the other criteria to occur more easily.
The only possible obstacles that might hinder the “strength” of this connection are self-imposed. These range from self-doubt, harmful patterns, and overthinking.
Therefore, introspection accompanied by inner healing is a slow but sure way that can help the connection with the universal energy become more lively and harmonious.
Know that this approach generates a process of inner transformation, which will be noticed daily, especially on the resonance side.
Specifically, you’ll be able to experience beneficial events and interact with people that will add value to your life.
Or… opportunities will arise due to your inner change in perception and vibration.
It might be challenging to recognize these occurrences at first.
But time and a conscious action toward this outcome will certainly polish your awareness.
