Appearing Spiritual vs. Being Spiritual

Our professional experience involving meditation,
psychic perception, past life regression, and
comprehensive astrology and numerology tells us
that when a soul chooses to incarnate and live
a life as a yogi, nun, or another, similar “spiritual”
existence, it’s often because of a desire, even
a need (on a soul level), to work on or experience
more spirituality, or soul-searching. Contrary to
popular belief, we’ve found that it isn’t reflective
of automatic spiritual awareness, sorry.
In fact, it’s certainly possible that the 27 year-old
butcher at the grocery store, the 53 year-old mail
carrier, the 19 year-old construction worker, or
the attractive, provocatively dressed, 45 year-old
woman who’s a fan of subtle cosmetic surgery and
occasional cocktails, for example, are closer to
being self-actualized than any yogi you will ever
meet.
A homeless person, professional boxer, military
general, and a rock star, for instance, might all
be far more spiritually adept than the yogi
featured in the best-seller. The insights a
musician relays through her lyrics could very
well have far more of an mystical impact on
your life than what you would find visiting a
sanctuary, place of worship, or reading the
teachings of a prominent cleric.
You will eventually discover that it’s possible
to encounter more wisdom in your own backyard
than it is on the other side of the planet in some
dreamy, far-off place. Our apologies if this notion
is far less exotic and spiritually romantic, but
we’ve found it to be the truth. Such ideas may
not sell a lot of books, but they will give you a
new perspective.
Assuming the theory of reincarnation is valid (it
has yet to be proved invalid), your soul (not your
personality) chooses to experience various
existences on Earth (and elsewhere) to learn
and grow. One lifetime might include 40 years
working on a farm, another might include being
a merchant, and yet another might be all about
family, children, friends, and experiencing the
richness of the emotional side of life.
One of the more spiritually enlightening lifetimes
for anyone might include 30 years of solitary
confinement in prison. Would such an experience
be fated? We believe so. Remember, soul
progression happens through infinite circumstances
and through multiple lifetimes and often may not
appear logical, from an earthly perspective.
Years ago, a past life regression client of ours
saw glimpses of herself as a castaway on an
island in S.E. Asia sometime in the 15th century
A.D. At the end of the session, we guided her to
view that lifetime from a higher-self perspective.
She casually reported, still in a meditative state,
that the extensive isolation in that life, among
others, was vital to her soul growth because, after
her basic survival needs were met, she (in that
life, a he) had no other choice but to go within
and reflect.
What happens when you go within, such as when
you meditate? You get your own answers and you
gain clarity about your life, your path, and
eventually the meaning of life. You become the
“higher being” who knows best. Meditation, or
better, even if only for a short time, a monastic,
or solitary existence can be like a spiritual boot
camp for earthlings who have, for whatever reason,
ignored their spiritual side. Might a person living
a monastic existence already be self-actualized?
Yes, and we can discern such things through our
work.
A review of her (the woman who had the castaway
lifetime) comprehensive charts shows a much
higher level of knowingness, as reflected by dozens
of key indicators and subsequent patterns. In our
professional opinion, she has earned the awareness
through past life experience, and no amount of study
in an ashram or temple in this life (aside from
helping her to remember her innate wisdom) would
give her that now.
The point we are making is that truly spiritual people
often appear otherwise to many who are conditioned
to think that one must be of a certain age or part of
a structured faith or discipline to have divine insight.
At the same time, we believe that there is a place
for all the various spiritual adherents and their
respective leaders in this world. They are doing
exactly as they are predestined to do, and we
respect all faiths and all practitioners, as long as
they are not hurting others.
