One of the greatest misconceptions about enlightenment or spiritual awakening is that it will just happen. Not so. It has to be earned, it has to be lived. Sometimes I find it challenging to explain to seekers that true enlightenment is not a one-off special moment, but more a culmination of lifelong experiences and practices that result in the dawning of a great insight.

  1. How do I make (and measure) spiritual progress?
  2. How do I be at peace always?
  3. What is the purpose of my life?
    Whether you enquired about meditation or Samadhi, or you wanted a better relationship or greater success, whatever joy you might have wished to experience, almost always the intent fell into one of the three questions above.  Dive deeper into the concept of spiritual awakening/samadhi/self realization with these posts.
