What is spiritual realisation?

The belief that you are spirit? No that is just a thought. A little closer to the truth than the thought that believes you are who your birth certificate says you are, but still a thought. Spiritual realisation is to see clearly that what you perceive, experience, think, or feel is ultimately not who you are. that ‘I’ cannot find myself in all those things that continuously pass away. The Buddha said ‘No self’ and Jesus said ‘Deny thyself’ do you think that means negate the illusion of self. If the self-ego-were truly who I am, it would be absurd to ‘deny’ it.

To me at this moment in time.

That it is impossible to understand the implications of my own actions, in that small good can lead to greater evil. That what I do today I would do differently tomorrow. That what is true today is false tomorrow. It is all perspective.

You can try and preserve all that you are in this moment and remain as you are for eternity, never knowing if you could be more or less, if you choose to only know self. I truly believe that just knowing who you are stunts your growth in spirit. You have only realized one true aspect of the universe self. That’s great… and if its truly all you need then you need not continue any further, for here is as far as you go. Whether you choose to pursue the white rabbit, or stay the course, you should at least… Read more »

I for one do believe there is a “Self” within me. If this is an “illusion” on my part, I will continue to believe this because this sustains me. God placed this “spirit” in me and I much rather believe this than jesus or buddha. Are we not a piece of the universe made alive? Man is too noble a creature to serve anyone but God. This to me is “spiritual realization”. When man thinks with his head in matters of the “Self”, be prepared for a long and lonely journey into disheartenment. These are REAL questions for they stir… Read more »

Spiritual-Realisation is practically as a personal transformation, profoundly intense experience will lead to develop a new understanding of the Wholeness and the role oneself in it. When the most of people have achieved the level of Self-realisation, it caused a major spiritual, physical, psychological and cultural planet-wide transformation – as spiritual evolution of humanity. A truth not only of highest spiritual status but of a dynamic consciousness, and its realisation is essential for any higher spiritual realisation. Spiritual Awakening and Enlightenment is the primary goal of almost all spiritual practices, traditions and religions and for any spiritual seeker. According to… Read more »

Somewhere a long time ago I read an analogy concerning Realization. Three men come to a wall, and the first jumps over it and does not return, and his companions hear him laughing in the distance. The second man jumps over the wall, and he laughs, but in a minute when the third man is still hesitating, he climbs back over to get his companion and encourage him to scale the wall too. That’s Realization. You discover the most wonderful existence, and you rightly should just go on alone from there. But some great masters have returned to help us… Read more »

Ones one comes to know the “own self” who drives us is itself spiritual realisation; the facts of living life and how it is lived are the knowledge of Spirit.

it is when you realise the truth of your purpose. it can only be done when you are ready and no one can help you. you must do it yourself. i have found the purpose of myself. find the purpose of yours.
