I’m interested in evolving spiritually; cleansing my self of emotional, psychological, and spiritual toxins, connecting with the God-source, and achieving higher levels of consciousness. Problem is, I’m brand-spanking new to the concept… With there being SOOOO much information available on this topic, I just don’t know where to start. Help!
I think that you can find a lot of valuable information from the mystics of just about every religion, like Taoists, Zen Buddhists, Christian monks, Sufis (Islam), and the Kabbalah (Judaism.) Also Osho is a good although controversial source.
Osho is my personal favorite because for one thing he has a lot of material you can find online, and for another thing his viewpoints are not very rigid, and open to a lot of interpretation. But if you want a more disciplined approach you might want to practice yoga or Buddhist meditation. There’s so much more I could say but I’ll leave it up to you to find the rest.
