With so many paths to spiritual awareness, how do you know what you've found the one that's right for you?
Personal spirituality is just that: Personal. For this reason, there's no one-size-fits-all instruction book to take you where you want to go on your inner journey to peace and enlightenment. This also means what works for someone else, even someone close to you like a best friend, parent, or lover might not have the same path you do.
So how do you know when you've found the 'right' way-the one that fits you despite all your quirks and highly unique personality traits?
You Find What 'Fits'
So many spiritual paths have you feeling like you have to make compromises to fit in. This leads to feelings of inadequacy and uneasiness. This is why it's so important to keep looking until you find the one where you finally fit. When you've found your spiritual path, your spirit will relax, and you will be at peace with where you are.
You See Patterns in Everything
The right spiritual path will lend itself to coincidence and serendipity. Here is where you start experiencing the magic of where things come together and make sense. The world knits itself together into a big picture, and life seems to be leading you in a purposeful direction.
You Find Meaning
When the path is right, you start figuring out the essential things, including your purpose in life. This knowledge is then used to direct your steps going forward.
You Find People on the Same Journey
Interestingly enough, you will find that the people you're drawn to most, the ones you love being around, are people who are on a similar spiritual path. Conversations with the people you admire will inspire, and you'll feel an energy in their presence that never drains you or leaves you feeling listless and tired afterward.
You Don't Need Help to Feel Good
When you're in the right place spiritually, you stop needing all the artificial stimulants people rely on to feel good, such as alcohol or drugs. Being high doesn't compare with the natural high you experience just from being at peace with who you are and the path you're on.
Once you find your spiritual path, things will really start clicking into place. You'll find you have direction in your life and a feeling of contentment that was lacking beforehand. This is you striving to become the finest you possible. Welcome to the journey!
