Do you think you are independent at this point of time? … I always thought i’m independent at many stages in my life, but every time i discover I’m actually far away from independent. He who answered this question as “NO” is the closest to the truth.
Your can never be independent
Sure! You will grow and become independent in the dictionary of this world. You will own things..no longer need people etc. Best of all, you will become emotionally independent (by spiritual-growth)… moreover, when you come to the realisation that your soul is independent of this world, you will learn to survive on your own (with the help of God only). It’s such a powerful state of being that is empowered even more with the reliance on God.
What is the soul? Your soul is yourself. The reality of who you are. Indeed you’re nothing more than a deadless, formless and timeless soul. The idea that when your body get sick, your soul get sick which result into death is incorrect. Instead it’s because of a sick soul the body gets sick. “We’re not a human beings having a spiritual experience, we’re spiritual beings having a human experience. ”
I want you to imagine a building as your body and it’s base as your soul. The building consist of a strong structure yet if something happens to the base the whole building will fall off . On the other hand If something happens to the top structure the base will remain unaffected. The structure of the building can always be rebuilt; but the base can’t be recovered without destroying the entire building including the base.
My point is, a healthy soul is essential for survival. You must have a strong base in Order to overcome all storms of life. The amazing thing about the human soul is that it doesn’t ask for much! It doesn’t require sleep or food or money etc… It already have a permemnent life. The only thing the soul needs is a connection with it’s creator, thus a spiritual connection with god is important, it’s the only way the soul can charge itself and stay alive.
- How do I practice spiritual Connection ?
Spiritual connection can be done through praying or meditating. Basically setting an alone time with god, taking to GOD and acknowledging GOD’S existence. The process of god consciousness is a door way for the soul to connect with it’s master. The absence or lack of this process can be described as heaviness in the chest and you can actually tell that your soul exhausted and intoxicated by the materialistic world.
- How is the soul toxicated by the materialistic world?
The soul have a different nature than the body. The things that the body enjoy and desire; will not satisfy the soul. For example you see people with a sick soul and are very determined on the body’s needs. sadly they reach a certain point where their soul breaks.
I think the greatest disease of our time is the whole “follow” thing. People don’t question anything anymore! It became the norm to follow everything and everyone without the understanding of why.
Have you ever wondered about the reason behind celebrating christmas? The reason behind Muslims wearing head scarf “hijab”? Or why Jewish people kiss the doorpost on entering a room ( whether there’s a mezuza or not)… Maybe dive into history with an open mind and the intention of learning. Always use “why”. ONLY WHEN WE COME TO UNDERSTAND THE PAST, WE CAN BUILD A BETTER FUTURE. The problem with no curiosity is that, it shuts down your brain and as a result insult your capacity to think. You become insignificant, just a follower. A number that’s used to benefit those who do have a voice.
No curiosity = inactive mind = equivalent to animals.
