If you have become sick and tired of being sick and tired, or if you have had struggles with depression, anger or anxiety, you may decide to turn to deeper spiritual truths as a means of living a more fulfilling life. You can choose to seek any spiritual path that speaks to you.
If you do not connect with the path you cannot expect to get much out of it. Some people go through conventional means for getting deeper truths. For instance, some people form a deep and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. For other people, Jesus may only be thought of as an ascended master. Some people choose the way of Buddha for greater meaning in life and others find solace in regular yoga practices combined with meditation. Others read more books of spiritual principles and daily astrology guides.
If a certain practice does not offer you that inner spark, you will need to continue seeking the path that does. You need to be comfortable in your pursuit of spiritual truths. Give yourself time to begin seeking out that practice. You might need to experiment with several before you find the one that allows you to gain deeper clarity and meaning in life.
Bring your full self into your search for spiritual truths. This means that you need to be as self-aware as you possibly can be. That can be painful for not everyone likes to admit that they have weaknesses or faults but everyone does. And, it is through weakness that our greater selves can be cultivated. Be willing to be as honest as possible with yourself as you embark on your spiritual seeking.
God or all-that-is is found in all aspects of ourselves and lives especially the parts that are broken or in pain. There is a crack in everything a certain song goes - thats how the light gets in. To humble yourself in the midst of your difficulties is often the greatest way to show your strength.
Patience is always a virtue when it comes to doing your soul searching. Be patient with yourself. You are enough right now. You will likely make mistakes as you try to become a more spiritually minded person but try not to be too harsh on yourself. Be happy that you are truly attempting living your life on a deeper level.
Learn all you can. Read more about the paths that speak to you and you will be able to live a richer and more meaningful spiritually guided life.
