Discover Your Real Self- By Undertaking Inner Journey
Through spiritual growth, we can really lead a blissful and contend life
Each one of use is unique. The uniqueness is primarily due to wide variation in our genetic composition (genes come from our parents) and the way we have been nurture once we are born. Early childhood experiences make a huge impact on the life we are going to lead. Then as we age, we keep on interacting with the world around us and that make us a unique being with varied attributes. That's why, the difference in attributes is huge. We grow physically and mentally. Then the time comes we start developing spiritually too. The spiritual development is mostly gradually and we can't become so called 'enlightened', in a short span of time.
However, In some cases, it's abrupt followed by some unexpected traumatic or any unfortunate incident in life. On such occasions people may experience faster spiritual growth.
As a result, at any given age, we all have our own 'spiritual level' depending upon characteristic feature about our nature, mindset, behaviour and overall lifestyle. Some people don't grow at all and they remain spiritually ignorant with regressive beliefs, impulsive and reactive behaviour, highly egoistic and selfcentred. Their own person interests are the prime concerns of life. We can rank their spiritual level close to zero. In a way, their life's journey is nearly 'stagnant' rather than growing and flourishing in life.
On the other extremely, people become spiritually enlightened through learning, spiritual practices, love and compassion. They are connected with nature and 'inner self'. There is no limit of spiritual growth and development., one can achieve. But their presence in society is abysmally low. Majority of us are somewhere between these extremes.
Our General Spiritual Level
It's extremely difficult to find out the spiritual level of others. We can only rely on what another person is saying. No one can make out what's going on in others mind. However, attempts have been made to assess the spiritual level of people across the world. One such attempt was made by Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF). The used a scale between 1 and 100% to describe the spiritual level. Greater the percentage, more is the enlightenment level. The scale defines spiritual growth – means where we are in our spiritual journey.
The foundation has published very interesting data about our spiritual level. They are interested only in material things of life, means they are busy in enhancing their wealth, status, career etc. They are generally religious, routinely vising religious places and believe in religious practices and rituals. They are spiritually ignorant. They try to lead a mindful living and are also compassionate and loving towards others. Almost all of us and to be precise 96% of people come in both these categories.
Then in the next category of 40-49%, there are merely only 4% of people. They are regular into spiritual practices, learned deeply about their spiritual nature and spirituality in general. They become highly mindful, self-aware and start leading a life with selfless love, compassion and empathy for others. Beyond 49%, negligible people worldwide would qualify. These people can be counted.
They are like Saints, Sadgurus, enlightened Monks and called in different names across the world.
