We can accelerate the process by trying, to the best of our ability, to live a good life, helping others and trying not to harm or hinder them. We should not judge others, for they are on their own path working out their own patterns.
We can read uplifting books and keep company with people of good character. The most important thing we can do to accelerate the process of unfoldment is to do our meditation and spiritual practices regularly. If we do our 10% the Divine Purpose of the Universe will do the 90%, but we must do our part and be sincere.
All life is on a spiritual path and anything that exists partakes of this life and path.
Even the rock is on its own spiritual path. For some reason, which is difficult to comprehend, our mind fragments our life not only from the rest of creation but even itself. We believe that we have two lives, one in the world and the other in the spirit. In truth we have only one life. The difference is where we place our emphasis: On exploring external things or unfolding our internal potential.
We should perform our duty to the best of your ability, living in and enjoying each moment, letting the workings of the universe take care of the outcome.
How can we anticipate the future outcome of our life when we cannot even begin to comprehend the interacting ripples created in this vast universal pond by even one single action.
We should have goals and work toward them, but let go of the attachment to outcome. Let go of the expectation that just because we say a thing should be so, that it must, and this feeling of burdensomeness will lessen.
This process we call “The Spiritual Path” seems burdensome or joyful depending on OUR attitude toward it.. The feeling of burden comes from the pressure exerted by our attachment in expecting the universe to conform to our ideas of what it should be. We are trying to create the universe in our own image and likeness. No wonder we feel burdened, the universe is much bigger then we and has its own agenda to work out.
The spiritual journey is not going from some place to some other place, but a natural process of unfolding our awareness to the realization that we and the entire universe are not separate, but one. The nature of the One is to express itself in the many. We are that expression and at the same time we are the One, pure existence itself.
