Spirituality Made Simple
By Owen Waters
You are a spiritual being, living in a material world and secretly endowed with infinite intelligence and creative power.
You only have to look within, to your true being, to connect with spiritual levels of consciousness. The more familiar you become with these expanded levels of consciousness, the more potential becomes available to you for the creation of a better life and a better world.
Each one of us is part of the all-pervasive consciousness which is behind all of Creation. This all-present, all-aware beingness, this Infinite Being, created the universe to experience itself from all possible perspectives.
You are an expression of Infinite Being, experiencing life from one individual point of view. Just as each snowflake is unique, so is each person. We are the eyes, ears, and hearts of Infinite Being as it experiences life from all possible perspectives.
As self-aware individuals with freewill, we choose our pathways through life. Spirituality is a path which, sooner or later, all individuals will choose because the objective of the human experience is to find the way back to the ultimate state of consciousness from which we originally came.
As expressions of Infinite Being, we literally have infinite potential. In the basic stages of human experience we use just 10% of the potential of the brain. Once you move into the spiritual stages of human experience, your potential opens up and your higher abilities begin to flourish.
Intuition, precognition, and healing abilities are all normal attributes of spiritual development. With them, your life becomes more meaningful and you become more equipped, in your own unique way, to make the world a better place.
Three easy steps to spiritual consciousness:
- Look up: Recognize your spiritual nature.
Know that you are a spiritual being in a physical world. Know that the real you is ageless and immortal. You are part of the spiritual essence which fills the universe and you are here to experience physical life as a human being.
- Look in: Look within and open your heart.
Your heart is the gateway to spiritual consciousness. Once you begin to think with an open heart, you are stepping from basic human consciousness into the spiritual stages of human development. This is exactly what we came to earth to accomplish, because finding spirituality is the mission of the human experience.
It may take courage to move into heart-centered consciousness, but once you acquire the expanded view of a life filled with love, you will never want to give it up for anything. You will soon find that worries and fears can be transformed by the greatest power in the universe - that of unconditional love.
- Look out: Make the outside world a better place.
When you see life through the lens of your heart, you see how your innermost joy and passion continually prompts you to develop your own unique talents. When you recognize those talents, you can acquire the skills that bring them into active expression.
When you spend your working days doing what you love and loving what you do, then your life becomes a constant experience of heartfelt joy. You can bring light and joy into the world by engaging in heartfelt action and doing work that you love. You can also make a positive difference by using spiritual energy to heal the world and make it a better place.
Look up, look in, look out
These three steps to spirituality can transform your life in a very powerful and positive sense. This is a message of spiritual freedom which has the power to bring a special depth of meaning and purpose into people's lives.
Be sure to tell all your friends who could benefit from it. Spread the news and help make the world a better place!
