Are you on the spiritual path?
Do you want to know if you are making progress on this path?
Here are signs of spiritual growth that indicate you are moving in the right direction.
- You always think about spiritual topics.
- You have reduced your focus on spiritual theory and you have become obsessed with spiritual practices such as meditation, prayer, yoga, etc.
- You don’t try to escape suffering. You accept it and understand that is an inescapable part of life and no spiritual practice will help you escape from it.
- You realize that spirituality does not make you immune to negative mental states such as depression and anxiety. You understand that spirituality only makes it easier to overcome them.
- You accept whatever happens trusting that whatever happens is for your good.
- You make bold and risky moves because you trust life/your divine power/God.
- You’ve lost interest in showing off your progress.
- You found the courage to follow your dreams.
- You are aware that every truth is a half-truth and therefore, you know that no spiritual or philosophical teaching is absolutely right.
- You realize that you will never fully understand God/Source Energy.
- You avoid excess sexual intercourse because you understand the negative impact of frequent sex on spiritual development.
- You stop using drugs and alcohol frequently.
- You really enjoy spending time in nature.
- You enjoy solitude.
- You are gaining new insights into life and the world around you.
- You are feeling that the universe is guiding you in the direction you are meant to go.
- You are realizing that life is like a mirror reflecting your feelings, your actions and your thoughts.
- Sometimes you feel happy for no reason
- You realize that God is your higher self or higher intelligence
- You notice that good and bad do not exist. However, you realize that living a moral life makes you happier and more peaceful.
- You stop judging others.
- You stop fighting negative emotions as you learn to cope with them.
- You are having lucid dreams and out-of-body experiences.
- You worry less when things fall apart because you believe the destruction is paving the way for a better life. You understand that change requires the destruction of the old and you must die to live a new and better life.
- You live in the moment.
These signs are from my perspective; thus, they are not the only signs of progress on the spiritual path.
