The Spiritual Quest


Spiritual Growth is a Personal Quest



by: Richard Blackstone








The more spirituality information you are exposed to the more you understand that your spiritual growth is a quest for understanding your relationship to life, love, God and the true nature of how the universe works.




There is this wonderful thing you need to know about your eternal life quest and it is one of the reasons that I love the concept of spirituality so much. Spirituality tells us that each person must follow their own particular path in their quest for spiritual understanding and knowledge about the true nature of how things work. It is an individual journey and you get to take the journey in any manner that suits you best. There is no “one right way” that fits everybody. There is only “the way that works for you.”




The words and concepts in this article are here to help you see another way of looking at life (or God, or love) so that you might incorporate these understandings into your own life creation. My request is that you view this material with an open mind and an open heart. Some of the concepts you will explore here may be new to you, and some of them may be ideas that you have heard before and revealed to you through my own particular filter. None of what you will be reading here is new news. We are not re-inventing the wheel. The wheel is already known to us, but the wheel is cyclical and as it turns and turns we get to view it from all different perspectives.




You are reading this article because you are on a quest to improve your life. I am on a quest to improve my life. And by improvement, I don’t mean that my life, just like yours, isn’t already perfect. Mine is, just as yours is. It is just that there are ways to live life and go through the life process that serve us, and there are ways to go through the life process that don’t serve us, given what it is that we say we are trying to accomplish and who we are being.




If you desire to live your life effortlessly and in abundance, then there are ways of interpreting the process of life that serve you better than other ways of interpreting the process of life. All of life is a choice, but in order to make the preferred choices you must have an understanding of all the choices available to you. This article is designed to allow you to see some different perspectives on the life process and thereby allow you make choices that serve you.




Whether you make those choices is entirely up to you. That is what I love about this concept called spirituality. It is entirely up to you to interpret what is best for you, given who you define yourself to be. Once you have defined yourself, then you have the opportunity to choose those experiences that reveal your innermost desires and aspirations to the world. If you so choose.




As you wake up to who you really are, you become inspired (in spirit) to create the life of your innermost and deeply held intentions and desires into your physical reality.




As you wake up to who you really are, you begin to understand the true nature of how things work.




As you wake up to who you really are, you begin manifesting into your life those people, events and experiences in your life that fulfill your innermost desires and aspirations.




As you wake up to who you really are, you align yourself with the universal forces that allow you to live effortlessly.




As you wake up to who you really are, you begin to see the abundance that is your inheritance by the fact that you are here, right now, in this present moment of now.




As you wake up to who you really are, you bring yourself into balance in the mind, body, spirit being that is inherent to your beingness.




As you wake up to who you really are, you begin to understand fully that you are not a human being having a spiritual experience, but rather you are a spiritual being having a human experience.




So that is our quest. We are going to venture deeply into the process of life with the intention of coming to clarity on the true nature of how things work. It is with this deep understanding that we will be able to incorporate the concepts and ideas in our lives that will allow us to be and therefore do the things that serve us as we move toward the vision that we hold of ourselves.




This is not the only way to view life and the life process, it is just another way. Once again, the beauty of life is in the free will to make any choice that you desire that will help define who you are and how you wish to manifest into your life that which you truly desire and intend to experience.




You see, all of life is an experience. That is why we are here. To experience life, to experience God, to experience love. (They are interchangeable) We are here to experience life in all of its different perspectives in order for us to see the core of who we really are, which is Love, from all of its different perspectives.




With an open heart and an open mind, let us begin our journey. By taking an in-depth view of Life As A Process we will gain some perspective on the true nature of how things work. Once you understand how the universe really works you can incorporate that understanding into your life and let the love and abundance of life flow to you effortlessly.




Let the journey begin.
