“Do not repeat after me words that you do not understand. Do not merely put on a mask of my ideas, for it will be an illusion and you will thereby deceive yourself.”
As we explore various aspects of spiritual awareness we come to formulate our own way of being. Allow yourself to be led by joy. One’s belief system has to be more than quoting particular books or teachings. The process of living authentically, teaching others and articulating the truths we value takes on a higher quality.
You may discover that you are undefinable, a unique amalgam of ideas and experiences that is wholly yours. If so, you are on the right track. All the teachings we absorb are merely pointers to a greater truth. When the soul responds to something with a heart-felt “Yes!” explore it. If the teaching or book or process has even one sentence that awakens your spirit, it has done it’s job.
We are all masters in the process of awakening. Without judgment, simply observe how you walk through the world. Notice how your thoughts influence your interpretation of life. Then, see past them to the love which resides at the core of everything. This is freedom.
