Practising what we know
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)
The people who are on Spiritual Paths spend a lot of time in understanding life. They also gain a lot of wisdom through their own experiences.
And yet, when they are faced with problems, they somehow don’t apply their wisdom. Which is why the problems and conflicts persist.
I suggest you to consciously spend some time in gathering all that you have learned, all the experiences, principles and wisdom that you have grasped through your own Spiritual Pursuits and Intuition, and write them down.
Ask yourself how much of your wisdom you are applying in your lives. If you are not making use of them, you can begin using them now. Otherwise, what is the point of Spiritual Pursuits and acquiring wisdom?
Only when we consciously apply the wisdom we have gathered, we grow spiritually. Just practising meditations and other techniques will not help us grow or transform.
Applying our wisdom is a part of our Sadhana (Spiritual Pursuit).
Only when we make honest and sincere efforts to grow, we understand many truths about ourselves. We begin to find answers to questions like, “Who are we?”, “Why are we here?”, etc.
I suggest you to contemplate on this.
The Spiritual Journey must be made by the individual himself or herself. The Masters cannot do it for you. Until you begin your journey, they can only wait and watch.
