What Does It Mean To Be A Spiritual Seeker?

To be a spiritual seeker means, first and foremost, to always look for the Truth, knowing very well that at the end of the day the Truth is One and Only; while also understanding that the One and Only Truth is not to be intellectually grasped.

To be a spiritual seeker means to strive for the conscious realization of the One and Only Truth.

It also means to understand that there are always two levels in what you perceive:

The Ever-Changing Forms

And The Ever-Changeless Formless

To be a spiritual seeker means to discern the Formless, that is the vast spaciousness which is always there, and on which the various fleeting forms of this world appear and disappear.

It is in this constant background of everything, this ever-conscious, ever-aware field of Presence, where the spiritual seeker longs to be, knowing that this is the seeker’s True Nature; one that goes much beyond anything words could even begin to describe.

To be a spiritual seeker means to never allow yourself to be fooled by any fleeting appearance.

It means to be beyond the superficial and misleading concepts of Good and Evil.

To be a spiritual seeker means to seek happiness in every given moment.

It Means To Allow Yourself To Experience

Everything That Life Presents You With…

Or Throws At You

To be a spiritual seeker means to have no strong preferences and no crippling attachments.

Or at least to be on your way of unloading yourself from such (dead)weights.

It means to exhibit boundless compassion and be infinitely patient with your fellow human beings, be they spiritual seekers or not, as well as with yourself.

To be a spiritual seeker means to leave no challenge that stands on your way unmet.

To be a spiritual seeker means to know that you are but an instrument of the infinite, cosmic, creative Intelligence and to fully surrender yourself to It.

To be a spiritual seeker means to have a strong memory and to make plans for the future, but it primarily means to be able and willing to live in the present moment.

It means to give your love freely, to anyone who is ready and willing to receive it.
