Spirituality is one of the four important primary foods
FIVE GENUINE SIGNS OF A SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
All human beings are created with a hole in their heart. We thrash around looking to fill this need that we don’t understand, with all sorts of worldly things like new clothes, food, jobs, relationships, holidays. When it can only be filled through the mindset in the spirit.
A place many of you probably are or have been, as was I.
You may sense a change developing within yourself. You used to be a difficult, moody, angry type of guy/gal, but now you want to love and be loved. This has nothing to do with sex, or friends. This is a genuine, unconditional love that you begin to feel on multiple levels. You can now love a person who may be awful towards you and others.
There is a profound sense of peace, calm or serenity that comes over you. When this feeling comes, you don’t stop to question what it is and where it is coming from, so you move back and forth from this calm into the old fearful ego mind. It is only when you choose to question and choose to want the love, peace, calm and serenity, will those feelings become a reality and not just a feeling.
We then find the deeper feelings that fear, anger, shame, guilt etc. have been constantly disturbing, start to settle down.
Each time we feel unsettled again, it becomes easier to see what it is as this inner peace expands. The inner peace brings clarity.
With this wonderful combination of love, peace and clarity, you begin to realise some of the depth of your errors, as well as the expansiveness of your talents. This profound realisation brings you to changes that occur organically.
You are now able to discern what is kind and what is unkind, what is right and what is wrong, what is helpful and what is damaging. This level of clarity can take on surprising levels of sensitivity, where you may start to realise how certain foods make you feel. You realise how consuming these foods are not in integrity with loving your body. The clarity then grows deeper, as you now engage with it further and you start to see your primary foods are not in harmony with YOU!
This now brings you to taking action and sorting through your primary foods. You may find you start letting go of habits, relationships that don’t serve you and even perhaps a career shift. To deny this sense of clarity tends to bring a great deal of confusion, apathy and upset feelings. For more on this topic, feel free to contact me.
I know this desire and need all too well. The need for the big Prado Grande or Z4 BMW or Mercedes, the need for 600 pairs of shoes and clothes that need a whole bedroom of their own. Suddenly the realisation that you don’t need some of the things you thought you needed.
Most of the world is operating through the concept of needing external things to make us feel good. It is quite a mellowing feeling to suddenly move from dependence to independence promoting spiritual principals above feelings, which is a sign of maturity.
You may decide to give lots away or donate it to charity as you realise lots of things burden and clog up your life. Initially it might feel strange to have this feeling, but as you relax into this space, it simply feels good to not need so much. And get rid of things. What I did was sell off my worldly goods and use the money to clothe and feed the less fortunate. I still am running this ministry and will be going around Perth soon giving out blankets and food as the cold weather is now just beginning.
It is an illusion that we need relationships, jobs, vacations etc. to make us happy. We need to learn to be happy on our own before we can be happy with someone else. Most people think they need someone else to make them happy and that is why so many marriages end in divorce. They married out of dependency and not independency.
5. MINDSET IN THE SPIRIT
Finally, mindset in the spirit apposed to mindset in the flesh is what we should be seeking. If when you first experience the LOVE, PEACE and CLARITY, you stop to question, you will obtain mindset in the spirit. If you choose to ignore those first feelings, you will be stuck in mindset in the flesh whilst you are too busy trying to build the big bank account, mansion, get that car, wardrobe, woman/man, best clubs, restaurants, and so on.
You may still feel those wonderful feelings of bliss come up, but ignore them, so sadly the window of opportunity will close and you are right back where you started.
Your heart is hardened and you shut out truth, but what is the good of that? You choose to cling to illusion and lies, yet the truth of our love is erupting and the illusion and lies brings suffering. Why do you think the lies will satisfy you after tasting truth?
Sadly, we are a society lost deep in delusion. Today I just want to encourage you to let go of the lies and delusion. Take hold of that LOVE, that PEACE, that CLARITY, that INDEPENDENCE, and take hold of the MINDSET IN THE SPIRIT.
This spiritual awakening that occurs in some people’s lives allows them to glimpse this need as the things of this world become strangely dim.
Worldly desire has lost its strong hold on us and we can now look towards God’s plan for our Salvation.
