To understand the true meaning of spirituality, evolution and awakened consciousness, we have to acknowledge the complexity of who we are. We are all souls sharing the experience of life within a physical body. How we approach this experience has a huge impact on the way we live, and on the legacy we leave our souls to carry.
We are an interface—the point where two systems meet and interact. We are the connection point between our origins and life on earth, also between consciousness and unconsciousness. Being a connection point between two worlds has been part of the mysteries of life and may remain so until we return to our origins. However, in the meantime, we are living a life where we get to choose the type of energy we create and contribute to our world.
We have freewill, and the energy of our soul’s consciousness and unconsciousness are constantly putting us in a position of choice. We may not be aware of these choices, but we still make them. The majority of the time we react unconsciously. Being aware—conscious—occurs through the intent to be so. Life is the arena of freewill, and we navigate our experiences with the choices we make. We either choose to feed the consciousness or the unconsciousness of our earthly soul system. This is simplifying it, as we are complex human beings. The decisions we make reflect the types of energy we value, our intent, and how far we are willing to separate from the truth of our souls.
We get to decide if we produce and project more unconscious energy into the world we live in, or if we are going to be a source of conscious energy. Understanding the truth of the energy we align with, nurture, and project into the world requires us to understand ourselves, and that is spirituality.
When we acknowledge we are the interface between our own soul’s consciousness and unconsciousness, we realise we have an opportunity to evolve. Recognising this and taking responsibility for being the pivotal point in our own evolutionary journey makes a difference in how we interact with life.
Our soul’s unconsciousness is the storehouse of our emotional baggage, and we keep creating more unconscious energy to store. The rules of freewill allow us to carry this energy, lifetime after lifetime. We carry the unconscious energy of our own making until we are ready to confront the truth of ourselves and engage with the process of resolving what we’ve created that burdens our souls.
We can choose to confront ourselves and deal with the energies we have stored in our soul’s unconsciousness. We can use our truthfulness to resolve and convert the unconscious energy into conscious understanding. This process of changing energy and, expanding our awareness and self-knowledge is evolution. Evolution is the process of developing changes that create emotional growth and soul maturity.
Evolution is the process of evolving from a primitive state to the more advanced one of unifying with the truth of our souls. However, to do this, we have to resolve the energy produced by our beliefs, fears, and barriers to truth, because we use these to uphold our framework of soul oppression. This leaves us protecting our avenues of indifference to truth. These avenues are sequenced patterns that cause us to stay on an emotional merry-go-round, acting out what we refuse to acknowledge or deal with. Our own indifference to truth often causes us to succumb to the seven deadly sins in an attempt to fill the internal void we feel. This void is created as we separate from our awareness of our own soul.
Evolution is not easy, nor is it impossible, but it does require us to be present and aware of ourselves and reality. The key is being truthful with ourselves. This book is a way of starting a conversation with yourself about how you want to live and interact with your own soul.
Our unconsciousness is a type of labyrinth that is at times difficult to navigate. Just when you think you have it sorted, there is another layer to the labyrinth. Labyrinths are considered easy to walk—just follow the path to the centre, and from there the path will return you to the same entry point. We make the labyrinth difficult, and it is the resolution of how we make it a complex, convoluted web of unconscious energy that enables us to unify with the truth of our souls. When we front up, accept the journey and trust the significance of our souls, the labyrinth becomes an adventure to unburden our souls.
Life is also a labyrinth: We enter a physical body, walk the passageways of life, and our various experiences enable us to encounter the diversity of energy within our souls. We exit the physical body at the end of our lifetime.
Awakened consciousness is unification within ourselves, with reality and our origins. Understanding the truth of this requires a journey of self-discovery. We have to walk the labyrinths we encounter, comprehend them, learn the lessons, then walk it again to see if we’ve retained and are willing to use our new knowledge.
Spirituality, Evolution & Awakened Consciousness is a reminder to contemplate the significance of your own spirituality, evolution and awakening consciousness. Don’t just see these as words or concepts to toss around. Align with your internal yearning to truly comprehend what they mean to you. This book will not have all the answers you seek, although I hope it ignites your curiosity. It will invoke questions within you that enable you to trust life as an expedition, encouraging you to become a fellow explorer—an explorer who seeks unification with truth and feet-on-the-ground spirituality. One who values being aware of reality, wants to be of truth, embraces uniqueness and is willing to get real and apply effort to unify all the fragmented aspects of your soul.
This book is an expedition to reconnect with your own insight and awareness.
