Six facts of Spiritual Science
Sometimes we wonder about what might happen if weÃ‚Â have been meditating for a while and are not able to doÃ‚Â it any more. Or, whether we would move backwardsÃ‚Â instead of forwards in our spiritual journey… if we areÃ‚Â not able to meditate daily for some reason. Well, weÃ‚Â will be relieved to find that there is never any ‘goingÃ‚Â back ! Everyone is moving ahead in this particularÃ‚Â journey no matter at what pace ! There could be a little,Ã‚Â so felt, stagnation… but there is no regression what soÃ‚Â ever. Ã¢Â€ÂœSo we can be rest assured our growth happensÃ‚Â irrespective of what we choose to experience ! But thisÃ‚Â entire Soul-journey can be better understood andÃ‚Â accelerated when we understand the Ã¢Â€ÂœSix Facts ofÃ‚Â SpiritualityÃ¢Â€Â.
Fact of Consciousness: We are not matter. We areÃ‚Â consciousness. We are not just atoms or molecules. WeÃ‚Â are energy that is pure and ‘aware.’ We are eternal. WeÃ‚Â are Forever-Being.
Fact of Incarnation and Reincarnation: As theÃ‚Â ‘consciousness’ state ‘involutes’ into matter, we first goÃ‚Â through ‘Incarnation’. The primary process ofÃ‚Â involution (from pure energy and consciousness) isÃ‚Â incarnation. Based on our experience and choices,Ã‚Â ‘Reincar nation’ follows. T he process ofÃ‚Â ‘Reincarnation’ is evolution. First we incarnate, andÃ‚Â then, more often than not, reincarnate.
Fact of Law of Karma: Ã¢Â€ÂœKarmaÃ¢Â€Â means Ã¢Â€ÂœactionÃ¢Â€Â.Ã‚Â Ã¢Â€Â˜Law of KarmaÃ¢Â€Â™ is also the Ã¢Â€Â˜Law of Cause and Effect’.Ã‚Â Whatever we may choose, act or do in the state ofÃ‚Â ‘matter’, we have to pay for those deeds in this veryÃ‚Â state of ‘matter’. Christ has put it well Ã¢Â€Â“ Ã¢Â€ÂœAs you sow Ã¢Â€Â“Ã‚Â so shall you reap !Ã¢Â€Â
Fact of Constant Inevitable Progression: EveryÃ‚Â entity, discarnate or incarnate, always forges ahead. WeÃ‚Â incarnate into ‘matter’ to experience different thingsÃ‚Â and all these experiences… both positive and negative,Ã‚Â add to our progression. The momentum at which weÃ‚Â advance will differ from one to the other. Some mayÃ‚Â even look stagnant in their respective spiritual journiesÃ‚Â but that is only what appears to be. It is definitely not the truth. The truth is, we are all progressingÃ‚Â constantly in our spiritual growth at the rate of ourÃ‚Â own choosing !
Fact of Possibility of Hastening Progression:
It is definitely possible for us to become candidates forÃ‚Â rapid advancement if one choose to act wisely.Ã‚Â Everyone is free to ‘hasten’ their progress in theirÃ‚Â spiritual journey. This is also called as ‘Yoga Siddhanta’.
For example, people make progress withoutÃ‚Â meditation too, but with meditation, they can chooseÃ‚Â to develop faster. Besides meditation, reading spiritualÃ‚Â books and listening to great spiritual masters will helpÃ‚Â one speed up one’s advancement on this path.
Fact of Infinities: Once we awaken our inner sensesÃ‚Â with ‘Third Eye’ perceptions, we see Ã¢Â€Âœthe infinityÃ¢Â€Â allÃ‚Â around ourselves. We realize that the essence of theÃ‚Â cosmic infinite consciousness lies in everything andÃ‚Â everybody. There are infinite beings; there are infiniteÃ‚Â worlds, infinite desires, infinite goals, infinite actionsÃ‚Â and also infinite reactions; We have infinite power,Ã‚Â energy and potential. We are encapsulated in a neverendingÃ‚Â creative process. It is amazing to be surroundedÃ‚Â by such magnificence. In fact, we are renderedÃ‚Â speechless at the enormity of this situation !
Once we become a Master through Ã¢Â€ÂœyogaÃ‚Â siddhantaÃ¢Â€Â (explained above as the fifth fact) andÃ‚Â awaken our third eye, one begins to grasp the finalÃ‚Â sixth fact. This final grand perception is also veryÃ‚Â humbling. At long last, we comprehend our trueÃ‚Â significance in the grand scheme of the infinite consciousness and learn to be grateful for everyÃ‚Â chance that comes across our way as an experience. WeÃ‚Â stop our petty judgemental nature. We grasp theÃ‚Â importance of letting go of our small ‘ego’ andÃ‚Â become the true image of the vast, benevolentÃ‚Â universal consciousness.
The fifth fact as revealed to spiritual science places theÃ‚Â onus of the pace of our journey squarely on ourÃ‚Â shoulders. So what is it that we want in our ownÃ‚Â expedition of life? A crawl, a stillness or a quick progress ? The choice is ours !
