We Are Our Own Spiritual Teacher
Those of us who have embarked on a spiritual journey have, more often than not, had teachers, taken classes, gone to seminars and learned many techniques that have been helpful in facilitating their participation in Conscious Human Evolution. Humanity is moving into the Crystalline Era of its development. What this means is that everything is changing very rapidly. The Earth, our bodies and minds are adapting to the next phase of humanity’s expansion. Whether you choose to participate or not is irrelevant, because it is a process that involves everyone. Eventually you must experience the transition, transmutation and transformation of life moving towards a Fifth Dimensional consciousness.
There is no one who can tell you exactly how to make the journey, which is part of the beauty of the rite of passage. There are no traditions or handed down ceremonies for modern day Conscious Human Evolution, each one of us must learn what steps to take on our own. We are our own spiritual teachers, floating on an iceberg that broke off the glacier, stranded on a desert island in the middle of the ocean and wandering in an infinite wilderness without a compass. However, all is not lost, in fact, we are less on our own than when we had teachers and gurus telling us what to believe and how to ascend. They were only sharing what they had learned on their path, but that path is not yours. They did not know what was best for us, and in spite of their loving intentions, they were keeping us from finding our own way, something we all must do. There is only one method for each of us to evolve off the iceberg, off of the island and out of the wilderness and the only being that knows that path is YOU. Your Higher Self knows how to proceed, how to discover answers to the unanswerable, how to find your way when impossibly lost and how to move from hopelessness to bliss.
There is no New Age pill.
With that being said it might be prudent to start listening to the guidance that is your birthright and understand that you possess all the wisdom you require. I am not suggesting that you turn your back on the world, but do understand that you are an observer and onlooker. You will not gain wisdom from the goings on of others, but instead from quieting your mind and listening to the voice within you. It speaks to you throughout the day and even in your dreams. There is a dialogue going on between your Higher Self and what you call YOU, better known as the self that has been created from the time you incarnated into this lifetime. Everything that is happening right now in your life is a message for you, intended to show you whether you are making useful decisions or those that will cause you to meet with resistance. What you can learn from others are tools to make your journey easier. Whether it be meditation, Yoga, Reiki, dowsing, Platonic Solids or crystals, to name a few and there are many more; if you feel drawn to learning or participating in one of these areas, it is meant for you, to make the process easier.
What I have noticed, in my pursuits of gaining knowledge from others is that we tend to look for someone to do the job for us. This will not happen. There is no New Age pill that will suddenly transport you to Nirvana. There is a path to follow and you are your own teacher when it comes to your own spiritual growth. If you follow someone else, you will find that you have to find your way back on your own and end up where you began, perhaps only slightly farther. Stop for a moment and begin a dialogue with yourself and keep it going forever and you will find that all the answers to all your questions are there for you and always have been.
