(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)
“What is a Spiritual goal?”, asked a seeker on the Spiritual Path.
A Spiritual goal is one that fulfils the purpose of coming down to this earth. We have taken birth to experience and celebrate life here. So, experiencing the beauty and the diversity on this earth and living life fully is a Spiritual goal.
To learn to overcome our negativity, to experience and manifest peace and love, and to align with the Divine are all Spiritual goals.
To fill our world with vibrations of harmony, to manifest the life-force, and to experience and spread the Divine Light to the whole world are Spiritual goals.
After appreciating and experiencing the life in this Material Cosmos, we have to return to our origin in the Divine Planes. So, going back home is also a Spiritual goal.
But instead of going back to our origin, we can choose to stay here and help others achieve their Spiritual goals. The prospect of helping others is a wonderful opportunity. If we choose to help others, we will be taking up the work of the Rishis (Light Masters). This is a very great Spiritual goal because it is the goal of the Rishis.
The Rishis have achieved the highest. They are here to help us realise our Spiritual goals. They are here to help us choose to help others and join the Rishis’ work, which is huge.
Even after choosing to work for the Rishis, we must try to attain perfection because, even that is a Spiritual goal.
When we attain perfection, we are fully aligned with the Divine and we manifest the Divine all the time. This is our ultimate goal.
