Most people are on a path of finding themselves, but they believe they need to leave their backyards in order to do so. This is a false notion. We’ve all read about people having a spiritual awakening after traveling to India or to some far away land. If you were to do the same thing, does it guarantee you’ll find your awakening as well?
While that’s possible, it doesn’t have to be and it is not the norm. There are many ways to find yourself. Going to places where others have experienced their awaking is fine, but not needed. Finding yourself is a journey within yourself, so all you need is to be willing to explore your inner spirit.
Meditation can help with this because it provides you with a way to tune into your soul and tune out everything else. In this way, your inner demons can be conquered, your ego can take a backseat and your awakening can begin to bloom. The internal struggle does not know what part of the world it is in; you can tune into it anywhere and at any time.
Enlightenment is achieved within the mind and one should never forget that. Setting location aside, here are some keys to help guide your spiritual awakening:
Read to Bring About Realizations
When you read, you take in information, you digest it, and it becomes a part of you. New information can help you see the world from a different perspective, one that can bring you closer to the awakening you seek.
There will be times when you appreciate everything around you – take notice. Be thankful for each day that is given to you as a gift. Notice the birds, trees and flowers, and how beautiful they are. Take in the realization that they are one with you.
Find Happiness Within Yourself
Understand that external happiness is false, because happiness is what comes from within. You have to be the happiness you want to experience. Mindset is everything when it comes to spiritual awakening. Even if the circumstances aren’t the best, you can still find happiness inside of you.
A spiritually awakened person is compassionate. That’s because when you are in tune with your inner spirit, you feel at one with the universe and you can feel the pain others might be experiencing. Nominate yourself to be their solid foundation in troubling times so that you can be there for them without letting it affect you.
Location should never be an obstacle on your spiritual journey. Although journeying to those places that have been influential in others’ lives can be quite amazing, it is not needed to find the enlightenment you seek. The world is the same wherever you are because your perception of the world forms your reality.
