Spiritual Enlightenment… What’s The Rush?

Click Here to get a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIt is a bit of conundrum that we have this Western culture desire to achieve a goal of enlightenment… and then we die. This is like rushing through a vacation and obsessing if we are ‘doing it right.’ What is ‘right’ anyway? We each are completely different people on our own individual journey.

After we achieve our life lesson and our chosen destiny for this life, we cross over. So really, what is the rush? So, we can get onto the next what? Vacation? Job? Lover?

Whether it is music, art, great food, lovemaking… we participate in these so we can be engaged and engulfed in a full, all-consuming, memorable experience – not an end result.

One of the reasons people enjoy doing something very physical or demanding (including creating crises or drama in our lives) is because a challenge (or crises) demands our full attention. It forces us to be completely present, completely engaged and this allows us to immerse our self in enjoying or engaging in the task at hand.

Perhaps ultimately, spiritual simply means experiencing wholeness and interconnectedness directly… If you see in this way, then everything becomes spiritual in its deepest sense. Doing science is spiritual. So is washing the dishes ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

We become absolutely present in each step, savoring it, with no time for the mind to comment, or criticize. In reality, we cannot live at a high level of adrenaline challenges daily, without getting sick  – lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel, alcoholism. We can however, learn to be so fully engaged in each moment of life that we no longer seek to escape , through alcohol, drugs, obsessions, or rush towards an end result.

We do this through mindfulness. Not an easy practice in this era and this culture, with its social media overload. With ‘mind full-ness’ we slow down enough to notice everything… texture, smell, our heartbeat, the nuances. Often achieved instead with drug use, we humans crave the experience of noticing everything that our five physical senses can offer us. Rather than seek out sensations as an addict or as an escape, we can seek them out as part of our mindfulness practice.

We can start by noticing how we breathe, the smell and texture of the air, of food. The feel of clothes on our skin. As we start to master these sensations, our mindfulness practice will expand to reveal to us our emotional reactions, thoughts we are having. And because time has been slowed down, alternate choices will start to be revealed to us, because there is now space in us to hear Spirit and our Higher Self. When we rush… we miss much. Like being on a bullet train, it is hard to enjoy the scenery. In fact, you cannot even see the scenery.

Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing ~  Jon Kabat-Zinn

Many people are very spiritual, even gifted, as psychics, and healers. However, these same people are often having a miserable personal life. Being gifted or spiritual has no direct relationship to a wonderful quality of life. Often spiritual people are so busy helping others, or managing their public profile on social media, that in the process they are neglecting their own life journey. Like a garden needs daily tending to thrive, people who wish to enjoy their life need to tend to the Self… daily. Personal practice needs to become a habit, like brushing your teeth.

If you want to have Spirit in your life, if you want more joy, guidance, serenity, then make mindfulness your daily practice. Post reminders on the fridge, in the car, on the mirrors, until this becomes a habitual part of your life. Then watch for the miracles to become a daily part of your life as well.
