We often have this idea that when we follow the spiritual path, at some point we are going to ‘get there’.
Like there is some cosmic finish line we will reach, where all our problems and emotions will drift away into transcendent bliss and we will be so beyond everything that nothing will faze us.
That is just another fantasy. Wrapped in spiritual gift wrapping.
There is no finish line.
Spiritual awakening is a verb. It is not a fixed object.
Learning to be accepting and surrendered to what is, provides more inner peace, for sure. However it still involves our ongoing willingness to be tapped in, present and choosing to open.
Awakening is an unending expansion.
