One of my students told me that she took the beach on foot. When he landed in the sun, he rose to the rock at the edge of the water. She looked at the ocean and felt that she had become one with nature – with the sun on the horizon, waves on her legs, pastel colors and insidious western skies. She said, “At that moment I felt eternal, knowing that these things last for millions of years before arriving and that they will live millions of years ago when I leave.” Therefore, I was deeply moved and started to cry. ”

Reflection, meditation, prayer, rituals and other spiritual practices have the power to free the “force of life” in the deepest parts of the human psyche that global intervention cannot achieve. Indeed, new evidence suggests that religious and spiritual intervention can help when everything fails.

Spiritual Practice

Spiritual exercises and spiritual discipline (often a retreat) is a normal or full performance of days of action and activities undertaken for generating spiritual experiences and developing a spiritual goal for development. A common metaphor used in the spiritual traditions of the great world religions is the path [1]. Therefore, the spiritual exercise transfers the person on the way to the goal. This goal is repeatedly called salvation, liberation or unification (with God). A person on such a path is sometimes called a traveler or pilgrim.

Spiritual Metaphysics

Spiritual Metaphysics is the nature of human experience, which is still only because our physical senses, research, and technology, cannot measure or recognize them as “unnatural” or “spiritual” studies.

Ancient spirituality and religions are systems of beliefs that try to explain the human spiritual experience. All religions in the spring are the illusion of separation because it is the human experience of physical form.

We experience ourselves as separate beings, separated from “God” and the physical universe. From this perspective, separation makes it impossible to capture the real physical experience of life, who we really are, and the power of life, which we already call “God.”

Spiritual Enlightenment – Traditional and Modern Definitions

Spiritual-Enlightenment

Original Definitions

The traditional concept of Enlightenment comes from the spiritual traditions of India – especially from various schools of yoga, Vedanta and Buddhism – and from the number of the highest spiritual achievements of the state. The end of the road

Buddhism – Nirvana, Liberation, Awakening, Strike
Yoga – Liberation (Moksha, Mukti), Execution, Liberation, One (Kaivalya) Union (Yoga), Perfection (Poorna)
Vedanta – self-realization, self-knowledge, jnana

It’s durable (you can not lose it when it’s available)
It will grow out of the ego soon
This is the end of all suffering
As you can see, the bar is large.

Modern Conceptions

Bhagavad Gita According to one of the “truths” of a billion people, this is understandable. Nevertheless, today there are many people who consider themselves enlightening.

99% of these people use one of the following:

(a) They think that they are more advanced than they are.
(B) they postulate different levels of enlightenment, we call the traditional definition of “full enlightenment” is somewhere on this scale.
(c) The traditional definition of the Enlightenment is treated as mythical, warped or impossible. They can not even learn how to do it and redefine the release of their level of experience.

I also have no problem with the “B” category, although it can be confusing and misleading for me to refer to particular stages of the road as “enlightenment” when they really meet the traditional standards set by the state (according to Hindu and Buddhist links).
