Can’t Get Enough Spirituality.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

I meditate for about two hours every day or more, before and after work, I listen to Abraham Hicks. I am finding that I want to meditate and immerse myself in more and more and more. I can’t get enough. I have always loved nature even from childhood. I even meditate on my lunch at work. I play your Secret of Healing- Meditations for Transformation and Higher Consciousness on my way to and from work a lot. How I view myself, life, death, choices, everything has changed. I always loved people, even strangers and would help anyone anytime no questions asked. My question is that I love what I’m doing and don’t know what to do about the fact that I feel like I can’t get enough. I don’t know how to fix that….or even if I should. I feel like I need even more. I have listened many times to the 7 Spiritual Laws of Success. I feel like I want more and don’t know what the more is. If I could go on retreats, I would. Before the passing of my son, I was a very happy person by nature. What I am doing has put me back on track with that but on a deeper level. I was always so in love with waking up and the sights and sounds of every living thing around me. Now that is even keener. I feel peace, bliss, contentment, yet I want more of the spiritual and don’t understand why or what is happening. I wish I could sit in silence for a week. I wish I could do these things almost full time. I cannot and so I live in the present moment and am very grateful to be doing it and having been led to it at all. I am happy no matter what I’m doing. I don’t know if I’m making sense here as this is difficult to find words for expression.

There can’t be anything wrong right? Because everything is as it should be right? I would say I’m out of balance but that would be incorrect also right? What am I grasping for? More spirituality. Why? I don’t view TV, movies, nothing outside of spiritual things, nature, life, love of people, and work interests me…SPIRITUAL being the active word here.

Thank you so much for reading my feelings.

Response:

Our social conditioning has trained us to evaluate our growth in terms of accumulating things, achievements, and knowledge. And that makes a certain amount of sense, but when it comes to happiness and spiritual fulfillment, this model falls short. It doesn’t show you that the fulfillment you are seeking is right here, right now in your present experience. The model of trying to get” enough” exposure to spirituality can blind you from enjoying the goal that is already there.

Your letter clearly indicates you are living and radiating a life of love, gratitude, joy and compassion in the midst of your current routine and responsibilities.  Your   spiritual growth will continue now just through the expansion of your heart into the world. You don’t need to go off on a retreat and meditate around the clock for a week or so. You are already full, you don’t need any more spiritual input. Let the expression of bliss, peace, love and contentment you described in your letter, now be your path forward.

Love,

Deepak

    I was wanting to know what you think of listening to audio to change your brainwaves to meditate better and deeper like holsync , do you think we should be using these tools or just do it normally

    Great answer, Deepak. There is one of my favorite books "Another Turn on the Carousel" (Un altro giro di giostra) from italian author Tiziano Terzani - I think that it was not translated into English, but it goes something like this (my free translation): "...I was increasingly convinced that there is something else, something that nets of science fails to catch in the ocean of reality. Something important. Perhaps more important than anything else. The fact that it is uncatchable, doesn't proves anything except that the nets are inadequate. Science is trying to understand and to explain the world by disassembling it into pieces, by measuring, weighing, observing and, if possible, by reproducing. How to grasp the fire, which is hidden the piece of wood? The tree that lives in the seed, joy or sorrow, which burns slowly in our chest?" Quantity is not an answer; measuring neather. Sometime we just have to stop struggling and relax. Goran Stanković
