Living life from a higher pedestal
Life is like a maze. You have to go through different situations to get from where you are to where you want to be. You get through many twists and turns especially dead ends many times, you retrace your path to find another way and discover that there is always a way out if you need solutions. Faith is the connecting link to speed up the process of getting you from where you are to where you want to be. Faith is the complete trust on someone or something. Faith is one of the most important qualities in Spirituality.
Spirituality is the measure of how willing we are to allow Grace – some power greater than ourselves to enter our lives and guide us in our lives. The highest priority of a Spiritual person is to be loving to yourself as well as others and that includes all living beings, the ecology and the planet we live in.
The prayer of the Theosophical Society is:
- O Hidden Life! vibrant in every atom
- O Hidden Light! shining in every creature
- O Hidden Love! embracing all in oneness
May each who feels himself as one with Thee
Know he is also one with every other.
By Annie Besant
In fact this is the essence of Spirituality. Everything is connected and interwoven. Just like the 2 banks of the river that we see are separated from the exterior but deep within they are connected. The sooner you realize that you are a microcosm and are a part of the macrocosm you will understand that everything is connected you will start experiencing life from a higher pedestal.
Further having the spiritual qualities of acceptance, authenticity, commitment, compassion, discernment, Faith, empathy, forgiveness, generosity, good conduct, gratitude, harmony, humility, integrity, Love, mindfulness, perseverance, patience, sense of humor, strength, silence, simplicity, fearlessness, understanding and above all Unity in diversity besides practice of Ahimsa or nonviolence in thought, word or deed you would be able to view the world with enormous amount of clarity and understanding and start living life from a higher pedestal.
Wise people, Sages and Seers don’t get trapped in the maze since they see the maze from a higher pedestal and as we all know that we can navigate through the maze called Life if we see the maze from an elevation. Let us become wise by living the higherqualities.
