On the path, we sometimes encounter—shall I say our mind encounters and questions—concepts that do not make a lot of spiritual sense.
I have to admit that truth is one of those concepts. One that never made a lot of sense to me.
Of course, we can distinguish between truth with a little t, and Truth with a big T. The ultimate Truth being closer to what I would call God or the Divine, which resides within us.
The Arcturian Group message’s excerpt below seems to agree with the position that truth is only a concept; perhaps one that doesn’t need to be consciously searched for.
What probably matters most is how spiritual we are.
By that, I mean, how kind to people in general, how generous in terms of our efforts to help others on the path, how receptive of the ideas of others, and how reflective. Just to name a few attributes.
These are ‘simple acts’ of daily life that do not require us to work with a guru; they require us to go within and yearn for that “ascended state of consciousness” the message mentions.
Yet, honestly, an “ascended state of consciousness” doesn’t make a lot of sense either 😊
Perhaps, the most important point in all of this is the “truth of who we are,” deep down. A being of Light, a being of sustaining humanity’s progress, that is someone who came to planet Earth to make it a better place to live on, one light ray—or one smile—at a time.
What do you think?
“Many serious truth students continue to struggle and put great effort into becoming what they believe they must become in order to be spiritual. They study, take classes, do rituals, get healing work, have readings, while continuing to believe that they have not yet attained because they don’t “feel” spiritual and their concepts of spirituality have not manifested.
Please understand that struggling and effort do not lift a person into a higher state of consciousness. It is individual readiness, as determined by the Higher Self, that does this. As you know, the first step is the intellectual knowledge of truth which may come from a book, another person or simply from within. The intellectual knowledge of truth is a mind activity, the awareness of something previously not known.
The next step is acceptance followed by a desire to embrace and integrate truth through study, practice and meditation. Many become aware of truth and are ready for it, but choose instead to ignore it in the realization that it would interfere with their present comfortable and well-established belief system. However, those spiritually ready, willing and able find themselves at this point unable to stop thinking about truth and are increasingly driven by a need to search deeper.
This is usually the start of a metaphysical phase in which the truth student seeks out different methods and techniques for attaining spirituality. They may join metaphysical groups, begin meditating if they don’t already, attend lectures, get psychic readings and engage in spiritual practices and rituals designed to bring them closer to God. This part of the journey may continue for many years and it is during this time that some begin to lose hope that they will ever achieve what they have believed to be spirituality.
Let go of all struggle and effort to achieve what in reality is simply a concept. You may never “feel spiritual.” All the practices and efforts you have made, in other lifetimes and in this one, were moving you to where you could finally let go, rest back, and know; “That which I have been seeking, I already am.” It is your Higher Self, the YOU that never left full awareness, and not how many certificates of spiritual achievement you may have accumulated that determines when you are ready to shift to a more fully ascended state of consciousness.”
