Life is full of characteristic, subtle nuggets. Such emotive facets are derived from our experience, or spiritual insight. While our life’s experiences resonate and express our vibrant perceptions through our voyage through time, our spiritual wisdom connotes a pulsating turn of phrase. This could be related to the dainty novelty of art, the amazing dexterity of science, and the blissful ‘still’ element or tranquillity of a lake. Or, anything that influences us all to organise, synthesise and mould our spiritual compass — no matter the ups and downs of life.
To go up the ladder of spirituality, albeit there is no ladder in the tangible sense, you need to be open, receptive and also espouse and understand the celestial reflection that resides within your psyche. This holds the quintessential purport and also direction — to guide your amalgamated intent for the higher purposes of your life and existence. It enables all of us, no less, to go through our triumphs and turbulence with the eagerness of a kid and the majestic sobriety of a grown-up — whatever our biological or spiritual ‘age.’ You’d certainly think of the metaphor as the two sides of the same coin — a never-ending learning experience, regardless of our knowledge, depth of intelligence, or wisdom.
A powerful will to learn and a cogent intent to unlearn is also what ‘animates’ our consciousness. It instils a transcendent sense of assiduousness — a belief, or resolve, to understand and appreciate the fact that each of us has a role. This has nothing to do with the ‘tasks’ we all have to accomplish — it all adds up to making our life worth living and useful for us and for people around us. Yet, the fact, as our philosophers emphasise, is that we should not equate success alone with everything — or, measure the attribute with material wealth. On the contrary, what we need to do to fortify our everyday life is to call upon our deep ‘resident’ soul to direct and guide us with the ability to choose not just what suits our purpose best, but also what fulfils our aspirations, or objectives, best.
All of this and ‘more’ does not, of course, mean that each of us should be idealistic, or lyrical, or verbose with a philosophical panache for detailed, or ‘scaled up,’ empathy. Not really — because, what we do, in any form of activity, is creativity. Honing our skills, or guiding a project to completion, is creativity no less. So also driving to work and engaging in animated or absorbing tête-à-tête — they all help us to fulfil our spiritual quest. This is primarily because anything and everything we do connects to a divine mosaic — our true self. It connotes a passage too — one that allows us to know what standpoint or action would be effective, if not rewarding, in a given, or not given, situation.
It may be emphasised that what you understand best will also enable you to know the simple and complex rules of life better. Yet another upshot of such a perspective is it provides us with the freedom and the liberty to ‘let go’ of our own sense of insecurities, as also certain inherent trepidations that we are all inclined to emote — as if they are a part of every thought, or feeling, we carry, if not put across. You get the point. When you ‘let go’ of your fears or apprehensions, you will see things in a new, clear light. This holds the key to unlocking your ‘soulful’ emotions, feelings, or masked strength of mind, while facilitating your affirmative purpose to achieve its acme in everyday life.
