The Fastest Route To Spiritual Growth

A book, an activated third eye, common sense?

At some point in our lives, we’ve all realized the fact there was something more to life than just what our senses showed us.

Suddenly, the world turned from being this boring mechanistic thing to one of wonder. A world in which our long-desired superpowers would finally be real.

Thus we opened ourselves to whatever may have been said regarding this new, fresh and promising world of the spiritual.

In the streets, most of us barely smile. But in the spiritual realm, everything is ‘love’ and ‘light’ — thus, it must all be fine. Right?

Such an attitude then opens a hole through which ‘sexy’ and ‘exciting’ thing pour in. Third eye, 5D, enlightenment, bliss, remote viewing, teleportation, hearing voices and even kamehamehas — wooow!

After taking in so much, a mixture of concepts briefly satiate our hungry minds. Suddenly, we are so spiritually evolved because we know so much, right?

Yet, despite knowing so much and calling ourselves ‘enlightened’ on forums and Quora — deep inside, we’re still confused.

All this information that was supposed to free us from our misery suddenly turned into a burden we must carry. Ugh…

We’re not spiritual because we want the truth beyond the senses anymore, but because we have a new identity to protect.

And at this point of no return, we’re left with two options: continue with our cherished baggage of ideas— or drop all this nonsense and become practical.

If you’ve chosen the latter, keep reading.

We’ve all heard of the third eye (obviously…).

While having another eye in the middle of our forehead is less sexier than it seems — understanding its function is more useful.

The internet is filled with content that goes into fascinating details about this famous third eye. Some even have lists of signs regarding its awakening.

Do you want to know who tells the truth and who’s wasting your time? Do you want to know if your third eye is awakened and strong? Simple. A strong third eye doesn’t like unpractical, useless, fancy theories.

The more fantasies (ideas, theories, concepts) we accept as being the ‘ultimate truth’, the more deluded we are. And the less in touch with reality — the actual and the factual — we are.

And, the less strength we have. Just as we’ve discussed it in this article regarding how we heal; life is harmonious — and this harmony is not an idea but a fact.

Most of the time, our ideas of how things should be vs how they actually are create a disconnect between us and life.

The closer we are to reality, the more harmonious (healthy physically & psychologically) we are.

What is therefore the fastest route to spiritual evolution? An intimate relationship with reality. How does it happen? By throwing useless theories and by testing things for ourselves.

A mind that is slowed down by biases and theories cannot discern the false from the truth. Thinking freely is more delicate than it seems when we realize how many illusions we’ve accepted as being the ultimate truth.

Ultimately, your most valuable superpower is your awareness. And your most important task in this lifetime is to save it from the grip of theories, false authorities, and unconscious biases.

And once you do it, you’ll realize how powerful you already were.

Is information completely worthless? No, obviously. But until you experience it for yourself — information is just a guide to experience, not a substitute for it.

In case you’d like to approach spirituality from a much more grounded angle, Diana C. greatly summed it up in her article. It’s highly recommended that you read it if you didn’t already.
