What percentage of people do you estimate would currently classify themselves as?

actively seeking spiritual truths? Asked another way, I am wondering about what percentage of the human population is awakening to their spiritual Self? And at about what point (% of us awakened) will the collective consciousness raise?
Do you know anyone in “real life” (lol) that is spiritual? (I am not speaking of casually spiritual….but more like actively spiritual)
Love and blessings 🙂
Also…just to be clear…from my perspective ‘spiritual’ could include anyone who is religious, but not necessarily so 🙂
As in, if you are religious you could be spiritual, but just because you are religious it doesn’t automatically mean you are spiritual.
I never give thumbs down…all of your answers are appreciated and welcome! 🙂
Yes, on one level we are all 100% searching…but the level I am asking about in this question is from the conscious level searching. Sorry I haven’t been clear!
I feel like many are focusing on the semantics of this question instead of the actual question I am asking…I understand why of course–there are many levels to this question. It is hard for me to put my exact question into words that are successfully communicated. I haven’t been clear, and for that I apologize. Maybe after more contemplation I can verbalize my actual question better 🙂 Nevertheless, it is still wonderful and much appreciated to hear all of your points of view!!! Thank you to all who answer/read! Love and blessings to all!

  1. I’d have to say less than 5%. I know when I used to be a Christian, my peers never questioned anything. Whatever was spewed from the pulpit was taken as true without question of doubt.

  2. I’d say around ten percent, is all. The rest know who they are, and what they believe or don’t believe in, as in a spiritual way.
    I’m not one of those, lol And I know of no one, in my group, who is seeking.

  3. The TRUTH is that JESUS is God, and only JESUS offers a free gift of salvation by faith alone in Jesus without works.
    Every other belief system forces you to try to “earn” heaven, or to ignore heaven (like atheism)
    But nobody can “earn” heaven, and ignoring heaven just leaves the person unsaved and on the way to hell.
    The truth is that Jesus is the only acceptable SACRIFICE and PAYMENT for our sins, and we are all sinners. Nothing else pays for any of our sins. All the good deeds in the world won’t pay for even ONE of our sins. All the “living a moral life” won’t pay for even one of our sins. No “religions of the world” can pay for anyone’s sins.
    The truth is that Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead. That is why Jesus had to die on the cross, because there is no other way for us to be saved. You must believe in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, to be saved! John 3:16! 😀 That easy to get into heaven!
    JESUS is the meaning and purpose of life! Only JESUS brings true joy and happiness!
    Only Jesus truly satisfies our souls, and only Jesus gives TRUE fulfillment! Nothing else will satisfy you or fulfill you, no matter what you acquire.
    Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! 😀 And the Trinity is true!
    The meaning and purpose of life is to be loved, saved, and blessed by Jesus, and to glorify the Lord, and to serve and worship Jesus forever! 😀 And to have a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with the Lord! 🙂
    The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to hell, is by believing in JESUS for His free gift of eternal life in heaven, believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what!
    Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in JESUS for His free gift of salvation! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, John 10:28, 1 John 5:13).
    Please pray now: “Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross to pay for my sins and that You rose from the dead, and I thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die! 😀
    The ONLY WAY to get into heaven, is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of salvation! John 14:6, Acts 4:12, John 3:16!

    • chris YOU are God in the same way we are ALL God or Goddess respective to our genders. Jesus lived his life as a Spiritualist like millions are doing now and by doing so hear the divine wisdom from within. Religion and Spirituality starts in a place close to yourself by that i mean with You. You wont learn more from any other external source. With no disrespect to the bible there are many other teachings to learn from like there are many religions, spiritual beings and higher dimensions for us to access.You should develop to be more open as you have a spiritual block.

  4. @ Chris you must have that wall of text ready to just paste on any religious question. Try putting some effort into your answers or at least stop spewing out bible verses and expecting others to listen

  5. do you see at least 10% of christians that spread out love(agape) to the world near or far..?? I don’t think so.
    I’ve seen a lot of none christians to genuinely accept ones point of views in religions and the real world(as an act of agape love) towards the individual/people.but hardly on the so called the LOVE churches out there(christians)
    christians from the head(pastors,teachers etc..) down(congregations/church members) are not walking what they preach and/or teach. they seem very knowledgeable but lack inspirations for people to get attracted to. their kingdom message is more like the salt lake when it supposed to be sweet water(just right).

  6. I dont know about percentage but i know every one is running to know the spiritual truth in their own way ….and among which some get and some are still searching.
    There is a desire planted deep within the human heart which yearns for something more and different than this world has to offer.
    This ache is so persistent and basic that it has been compared to physical hunger.
    It is true, of course, that some people resist this hunger.
    This soul’s starvation leads to spiritual decay and finally to eternal emptiness — an unending separation from God.
    In the meantime, keep searching, discerning, and measuring what you personally believe to be true against your internal spiritual compass.
    That way, your aim in life will always be true.

  7. I won’t give an answer to the percentage question, because God said, ” I would that they not parish, and My Word shall not return to me, void.” I will have Mercy on whom I will have Mercy.”
    I’m for giving the devil nothing, and refuse to cooperate in counting any slaughter.
    For God said, in Jesus, ” Though he be dead, yet, shall he live, he that believeth in Me.”
    I’d rather count sheep. Jesus said, ” Feed My Sheep” ” The Gospel the power of God unto salvation.”
    I know the world is a better world because Jesus Christ, interceded for the world.
    That whomsoever believeth on God’s Son should not parish.
    Believing, that He died on the cross, for a wretch such as I, and resurrected.
    Through His Blood Atonement, He has reconciled us to God.
    Through, the Gospel, the power of God, unto salvation.
    Now, friends I would not have you be ignorant, Jesus Christ, said, ” If you love Me, keep my commandments”
    If, you love Me, keep my words. least a worst thing come upon you. If you are lukewarm, I”ll spew you out of My mouth.”
    Yes, the Holy Spirit, keeps you, and stay in prayer. You just don’t make a declaration, and forget the manner of Spirit you have been redeemed by.
    St. Peter said, ” The sow that was washed to wallowing in the mire.”
    Take care, check, judge yourself, that you can confess your sins, and repent.
    1st. John, ” If we confess our sins, He is faithful and Just to Forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
    The Holy Spirit, shows me my errors, and in humility, I must rebuke in me the iniquity
    If I rebel and not accept my error, and continue to do it. I must resist the devil in all evil.
    And this by the Grace of God, not as if I am something. God resisted the proud.

  8. The only religious label that will stick to me is “spiritual”
    Has nothing to do with religion
    And you don’t really seek spiritual truth…….it comes to you
    “You won’t find it if your looking for something else
    or spoon fed easy answers”
    ???Ever get a hug from mother nature?????
    A sense of oneness with a place you survive on and your people died in
    A deep intimate connection beyond love or attraction
    A strange feeling followed by a call your parent sibling or best friend died
    A strange feeling of trouble……right before the life threatening trouble
    Life and the world are full of unexplainable things
    Religion and science are ways we attempt explain them
    Most have an explaination……most
    Spiritual…is related to, or consisting of , having the nature of “spirit”.
    ……….Not tangable or material (websters)
    AND
    “spirit”….is the vital principle or animating force in all living beings
    I might go beyond living ….in the traditional sense and say “existing” beings
    …………animating force in all living / existing beings
    Therefore “Spirit”……has to do with existence
    the vital principle or animating force
    It’s…SOMETHING…it effects and impacts us ALL
    WE…YOU and ME don’t understand it….YET
    OR……maybe we forgot more then we know

  9. .
    What “percentage”? That number is growing more and more each moment. Increasing rapidly and more-so these past months, years.
    To put an actual number to that percent? That I choose not to do as in my perception that’s in realm of limit to put a percent on it. It just is what it is and the growth is very much felt and thus known as Truth that’s growing in awareness.
    Do I know anyone in “real life” that is actively spiritual? Yes, very much so. I personally know many and additionally hear of others not personally known.
    .

  10. less than 1%. about 1billion people is worried about the next food, another billion worried about the next paycheck, another billion worried about the next it thing, and the others just couldnt care less.
    yeah, less than 1%

  11. I assume that a lot of people would classify themselves as such…but how many of them actually are is another story. My guess is maybe 1%…maybe. This does not worry me one bit though. I was in my bedroom last night and it’s a pretty large room. Around 14’x20’…and I had one tiny candle lit…and that tiny tea light candle lit up my entire room. This single 1in flame of light filled a room 280 square feet. What this means spiritually is that not only is the dark helpless against the light…but it also shows us how much more powerful the light is over the dark. This gives me great hope that even if there were only 1-2% of the people in this country who are truly walking spiritual paths then one person can shine on 280, maybe even thousands of people. Look at someone like Martin Luther King Jr…he shined his light on millions of people. So all that world needs is a very small % of very dedicated people and it may be enough to reach the critical mass…the tipping point of collective consciousness may only require a few people…but just to be on the safe side i hope that more and more people start making this an active, conscious, effort.

  12. Approximately 20% of humanity recognizes the reality and truth of integrity as a path in life.
    Approximately 10% of humanity recognizes reason, logic, science and rational positive thinking as useful, viable, practical ways of living.
    Approximately 4% of human recognize spiritual realities and actively seek to grow spiritually.
    Many less than 1% of humanity actively seek enlightenment. Most rather seek salvation and the practical goal of unconditional love, which is available to all seekers.
    From one point of view, 20% of humanity are spiritually aligned. From another point of view, less than 1% are dedicated to enlightenment as a life goal. So take your pick! =D
    Among my circles, the 20% accounts for 95% of the people I associate with. I know about a dozen people in the 4% category, and two in the less than 1% category.

  13. I only know a couple of people who are deeply spiritual beings. Not necessarily “seekers,” because we don’t seek spirituality, it kind of inserts itself into our lives naturally through a process of elimination, I think. When you start thinking about all the possibilities involving Creation, our existence, our relationships with each other, our feelings towards one another, whoever is capable of going deep enough within will end up finding that they are more than just a pile of flesh and blood. That there’s more to what we are than meets the five senses.
    Sadly, everyone else in my life is still stuck in old beliefs, usually fueled by Sunday’s at church, where a pastor or a priest offers them their version of what they think happened. And this version is accepted entirely and without questions. Do these people also seek spiritual truths? Yes and no. They seek to know just enough to get them to heaven, that’s for sure. This heaven that has been taught to them since their childhoods. But they don’t really have any desire to go deeper than that because, frankly, for these folks it’s not necessary. Just trying to do good by others, going to church and reading the Bible once in a while is construed as the best and only way to reach heaven for them. And so it is. **grins**

  14. A very high percentage, I would think. Personally I can not think of a person I have known who did not wish to understand the world and our existence or self, if you prefer. I know that I can only speak of a tiny sample, but I have no reason to suspect that any one else is any less genuine in their search than I am.
    I have to note, I suppose, that I don’t differentiate between ‘spiritual’ and ‘non-spiritual’ truths, which undoubtedly affects my answer, and, further, that I am uncertain as to whether I quite understand what you mean by ‘spiritual truth’. However, I think I agree with ‘hunter & t-bone’ who answered your question previously (though perhaps for different reasons), that everyone is searching for this in their own way.

  15. I would say the number of people actively engaged in raising their level of consciousness so as to better their ability to realize Truth (as opposed to reading to what someone else said about it) is certainly way less than 5%, more likely closer to less than .5%.

  16. I’m going to answer right before the dead line because I am sure many will disagree with my answer.
    LOL!
    As far as numbers or percentages, I could not tell you nor would I try. It takes but one to completely change the world, for if you change your mind you change the world you perceive!
    As within so without, there just is no separation.
    In my experience ego has been more than happy to allow me to have various different beliefs, to a point.
    I got to feel so very Spiritual & it got to continue, so to speak, without feeling threatened!
    It is when we begin the work of recognizing the ego & begin to learn to stop listening & identifying with it that the ego becomes disgruntled because it knows it is the beginning of the end.
    Stopping us before we start is always much easier than stopping us after the process has become conscious within us. As long as we do not threaten it, ego is more than happy to let us have any belief system we want & to feel as Spiritual or Religious as we want.
    For ego, that’s a win-win situation & we are not the wiser that in Truth we lose!
    This is merely my understanding of my personal journey & I mean no offense to any Belief System.
    Many Blessings!
