What is it About Spiritual Truth That Makes It So Difficult to Find?
What is it about spiritual truth that makes it so difficult to find? What is it about topics of spiritual importance that makes them so difficult to confirm and validate?
Since a long time ago, I’ve been thinking a great deal about this issue. These are the conclusions I’ve reached.
The fact that spiritual truth is so elusive might be due to a variety of circumstances. The following are some examples:
1. A Large Number of Searchers are Using the Incorrect Ways of Searching
What precisely do I mean by this? First and foremost, we attempt to connect with and reveal spiritual truth and reality through the use of our own reasoning ability.
This will get us nowhere because spiritual reality is what surrounds our limited thinking faculty, and our limited thinking faculty cannot comprehend spiritual truth.
It is possible that spiritual reality exists “outside” the conventional cognitive mode and is given by a personality or ego.
Please accept my apologies, but the vast majority of individuals behave in this manner.
As a result, Christians can only believe in divine spiritual reality rather than experience it.
My earliest encounters with Divine Consciousness occurred during meditation sessions, and they were life-changing.
During these meditations, there was a considerable reduction in the number of ideas and thoughts. We will clearly see ourselves as an all-pervading presence when we are not thinking (yes, not even a single thought!).
During these moments of illumination, we discover that the world and ourselves are not what they seem.
And all of a sudden, we grasp what the old sages of many religions were saying.
2. Being Influenced by Ideas from Various Civilizations, Our Upbringing Clearly Defined What Should be Real and What Should Not be Real
And this is reinforced by a highly persuasive framework that is based on scientific evidence as well as visual and experiential confirmation.
Allow me to elaborate on this topic more… Education and adults have been teaching us what is proper and what is not since we were children.
We have all been taught to think and act in the same manner. So, our concept of self has been shaped by the knowledge and ideas that we have been given throughout our lives.
Did you know that a child’s relationship with the world differs significantly from that of an adult prior to any learned knowledge?
Much of our perception of the world is shaped by our experiences, and it is fundamentally different from our natural way of referring to things.
Nonetheless, learned techniques are by no means harmful; it is just that current cultural influences have a tendency to repress and discourage some in-born cognitive talents such as intuitive clairvoyance and other psychic powers.
In addition, intuition is a key component of effective spiritual navigation.
3. We Believe We are Experts in Every Field
When we believe we know everything, the belief that we already know everything will prevent us from learning anything new.
What is the reason behind this?
The reason for this is that a “know-it-all” will never want to know fully and will never go deep enough.
In a nutshell, these are the conclusions I’ve reached.
