The decision to be spiritual is not a compulsory one. However, the forces of nature will eventually guide you towards a certain form of spirituality, whether it is in this lifetime or several lifetimes down the line. So why not take the initiative and start your spiritual journey now? By doing so, you can live a more conscious life and avoid being led by your karma through endless cycles of rebirth.
It’s up to you to choose between living consciously or mechanically. Living consciously involves being aware of your thoughts, emotions, and actions, while living mechanically means going through life on autopilot without much thought or awareness.
If you can identify one thing in your life that is eternal, then you are already spiritual. This eternal element can be anything that transcends the material world, such as love, joy, or inner peace. When you find this eternal element, you have found the essence of spirituality.
Take a moment to reflect on your life’s goals and aspirations. Among the multitude of tasks and ideas you have, can you identify one that is eternal? If you can’t, it’s time to start looking inward and searching for that which is eternal.
The things you seek in life are transient and fleeting. You may achieve them, but they will eventually fade away, leading you to seek more. This cycle will continue until you realize that nothing in the material world is eternal. Only then can you turn your attention inward and start your spiritual journey towards the eternal truth.
