Finding our true spiritual path is difficult if we only look at what society and others would ask of us, and we do not look within to the connection each one of us has with the Divine.  While it can take years of spiritual development to get in touch with the voice within, the best place to begin is with a willingness to listen to the inner voice: with an aspiration to become closer to the Divine.

This does not mean that we have to sit on a mountain top and contemplate, but simply be mindful as we go through our daily lives.  It means being mindful as we speak to others. How do we sound? What does our tone of voice sound like? What kind of energy are we extending to others with our tone of voice, words and body language? Are we being kind or irritable?

As we walk the spiritual path, we will find that many activities that used were appealing are no longer exciting.  We will find that some of the people in our lives do not belong with us any longer.   As we make changes in our lives, this does not mean that we have to leave our families or change our jobs unless we are feeling extreme discomfort. We can take our time to understand which life situations can be improved and which situations we need to leave.

I read many books by the Mother, one of the founders of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry India.  I find great wisdom in her words, as I do in the words of the Sri Aurobindo.  Both of these great teachers are in spirit now, but they have left us many words to read and I believe they continue to work with us from the world of spirit.

Here is a quote by the Mother from “The Psychic Being” published by Lotus Press

“If we truly want to progress and acquire the capacity of knowing the truth of our being, that is to say, what we are truly created for, what we can call our mission upon earth, then we must, in a very regular and constant manner, reject from us or eliminate from us whatever contradicts the truth of our existence, whatever is opposed to it.”
