What’s the best way to go about achieving spiritual evolution?

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 first noticed the spiritual part of mine when I was 13 years old. I had experiences and now I can hae the blessing of knowing me(spirit, brain, and body) and having the ability to control every single part of me. I can not destinct between spirit and heart, b/c I think that heart is responsible for spiritual feelings, believe and thinking 1- Do not fulfill all your body needs.or do not take commands from ur body all the time, give ur spirit a break. I do not say “u be a saint ” No, but order the needs, I… Read more »

You could try BUDDHISM — Religious teaching from Buddha and his followers that by destroying greed, hatred and delusion (the cause of all suffering) man can attain perfect enlightenment!! But if you want to evolve then give religion a miss! Science has shown atheists have a higher intelligence than people with a strong religious faith. The difference is 5.8 points according to findings in developmental psychology!!! More members of the “intellectual elite” considered themselves atheists than the national average. Only 7 percent of members of the American National Academy of Sciences believed in God. Whilst only 3.3 percent believed in… Read more »

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.

Start by reading the Bible.. Start with the New Testament.. When you have a good handle on that.. then go read the Old Testament to learn how God dealt with his people at that time.

Head down to your local bookstore and get some beginners books on Buddhism, Paganism, or general New Age-y stuff, and also on philosophy. (edit: or other religions you may be interested in.)

It’s more important to learn and be informed than to choose one specific faith from the start.

Try to pay attention to life’s little lessons. There are amazing things going on all around you – you just have to pay attention.

Best of luck!

If you are near a college you might consider taking a class in comparative religions just to get an idea of what they are all like.

The very first step is asking that question.

Don’t worry about studying information on the subject. It all comes from changes within yourself, and life lessons.

I suggest you sit down and listen to ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ by The Beatles. It’s as good an introduction to mind expansion there is.
