Different truths on the Spiritual Path
Truth is like beauty, it lies in the eye of the beholder. What’s true to one person might not be to another.
Some people believe that you can only get to infinite consciousness if you’re a member of their particular spiritual group or religious sect. This belief blinds people to all of the wonderful and uplifting beneficial ideas from enlightened people of other faiths or no faith. The same happens with philosophies, where people insist that their way is the only right path.
This view throughout history has led to persecutions, wars, and the justification of violence against those who don’t share a particular religion or philosophy of those in power. It justifies the negation of our free will. But how did such fracturing of unity, disrespect, and competitiveness take root?
The answer is pretty simple. If mankind was evolved and self-realised already, we would not need spiritual philosophies, paths, or religions. We would already have attained the things that they’re set up to teach. But that’s not the case, and people get stuck in their limited consciousness and their lower vibrational paradigms. This is what we’re overcoming in our quest for spiritual mastery.
In this episode of Soul Talk
In episode #173 Shakti Durga talks about the fourth hallmark of a person who’s quite self-mastered and self-realised: accepting that there are many paths and many different levels of truth. She explains how our understanding of truth alters as our consciousness alters, how there’s always a greater truth sitting behind any apparent one, and why we need an open and flexible mind in our search for what’s true.
Tune in and learn how you can change your life by shifting your affirmations, why it’s important to cultivate the discernment to only share truths that are relevant to the people who are hearing them, the role of spiritual teachers and masters, and so much more!
