True spiritual teachers will never preach their perspective as a way of life. However, they will teach to whoever is listening, methods and their own experiences, understanding through wisdom. The reason is to provide direction, expansion or to awaken deeper levels of the sub-conscious mind to question existence and connection further.
Not every lesson will resonate with a student. If we try to force ourselves to learn a lesson we are not ready for, it can cause us to stray from our authentic paths. We waste time on a lesson we may never need or it may come naturally at a later date. Spirituality is an individual journey and with the incorrect teachings we may lose ourselves trying to understand another’s perspective if it’s forced.
A teacher is always the student. The more questions people ask the more we evolve to understand from different angles. We can all look at the same image, however, we’ll all gain a different understanding on what that image means and feels like to us. Eventually we’ll agree on a balanced understanding of what that image is expressing. In Spirituality this is called an alignment. So everyone’s insight is just as important. It’s a journey that we can all do alone together, just as nature intended.
If your ever given advice or information from Spiritual teacher and you are unsure. The first question you should be asking yourself is; what does this mean to me? Instead of looking at what did it mean to them? There is never no right or wrong answer. If you do not resonate with the teaching move on. You know yourself better than anyone and you will always be your greatest teacher and navigator.
Spiritual teachers, books and videos are only there to get you started. They may teach you the alignment of understanding at that moment in time however the deeper we go into questioning that knowledge the more we can add and develop further. Teachings are a reminder that you are never alone because others have travelled down the path of the unknown. We can never truly know it all. We can learn what it means to ourselves and build a greater connection to the divine and all living creatures around us. You set the direction, pace and will understand what works best for you. You’ll develop your own methods overtime.
It’s important to keep balanced in living and learning, mind, body and emotions whilst opening the spirit. That way we don’t become lost, imbalanced or unstable in the process. Awakening isn’t an easy journey the deeper you go the tougher the lesson but it’s a truly beautiful journey which will make you stronger as you go. Please be wise and take plenty of breaks to live, feel and connect to the beauty of the world around you. The experience of the outer world is just as important as the journey inside yourself.
One piece of wisdom I’ll share which is open for interpretation. It’s important to never because fixated on one truth. There are different and deeper levels of understanding and that understanding will depend on our level of consciousness at that moment in time to perceive and understand it. The spiral of life which is encountered in sacred geometry around the world is a good example of this. The more we raise our consciousness the more we are able to understand and the deeper the spiral goes. The universe is continuously evolving as is consciousness therefore, truth cannot be fixed as truth is something that is definite not infinite.
