The real spiritual awakening

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“That is the real spiritual awakening, when something emerges from within you that is deeper than who you thought you were. So, the person is still there, but one could almost say that something more powerful shines through the person.”

Eckhart Tolle

When Awakening Gets Messy

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

Wouldn’t it be nice if awakening were this mystical/magical kind of thing that happens all at once and everything from that point on is smooth sailing?  If you are waiting for that to happen you may be missing out on where Spirit is trying to lead you.

Sometimes awakening gets messy.  As your thoughts and beliefs begin to change your whole world can get turned upside down.  And the world may continue to be upside down as awakening is not a one-time event.  It is a process, a path, and a way of life as we continue to awaken and learn to live in the awakened state.

We are seeing that right now in our world as there is a mass awakening, as well as mass resistance and push back against the awakening.  Where will this take us?

Life gets messy sometimes.  So does spiritual awakening.  The awakening process does not take us out of the world as it is.  But if we listen to Spirit we will learn new ways of living in the world.  If we stay engaged in the process and continue to awaken we will be a light shining in the world and an example to others.  This is what will change the world.

Sometimes it Takes a Wake-up Call

Copyright by R.A. Robbins 2017

“Sometimes it takes a wake-up call, doesn’t it, to alert us to the fact that we’re hurrying through our lives instead of actually living them; that we’re living the fast life instead of the good life. And I think, for many people, that wake-up call takes the form of an illness.”

We need enlightenment

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“We need enlightenment, not just individually but collectively, to save the planet. We need to awaken ourselves. We need to practice mindfulness if we want to have a future, if we want to save ourselves and the planet.”

Opportunity to grow in spirit

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“Within you lies opportunity to grow in spirit. Keep your feet on the earth, but lift your face towards the heavens. Surrender to the light with a tranquil mind, and a heart full of the love of God.”

If a man can control his mind…

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”

The Buddha

We are all equally capable of Spiritual Awakening

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“We are all equally capable of spiritual awakening. It may not seem that way, at times. Some of us are so caught up in the drama of our day-to-day existence that we have lost track of who we really are. But eventually, all of us will make the discovery of our true nature.”

God is Beautiful

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins

“God is beautiful and He loves beauty. When you are true in your relationship with God, you take on that beauty in you. You become virtuous, just and balanced. Everything you do is graceful and beautiful. Every thought you think, every word you say and every action you take. Anything you weave, make, carve or cook with your hands, it all becomes beautiful.”
