MORE IDEAS FROM Path to spiritual awakening

Love : Anyone who has experienced spiritual consciousness has spoken of divine love. The love we think of as love is but a reflection of a much higher love. It is an all-embracing, fulfilling, satisfying love that pulls close to its heart all that exists. It embraces each of us equally, and is an unconditional love — one that does not see our outer differences.

The Five Elements of Enlightenment Experiences
(1-3)
  • Intensity - Going through an enlightenment experience regardless of belief makes people experience intensity through feelings of love, joy, or awe. These intense experiences is likely associated with increased activity in the limbic system which is the brain's primary emotional centre.
  • Unity - When we feel a profound sense of connectedness with the rest of humanity, God, or the Universe it is associated with a decrease of activity in the parietal lobe of the brain that stores sensory information.

Spirituality Is A State Of Mind
  • A spiritual experience, according to the father of Western psychology, William James, is a state of higher consciousness.
  • Spirituality, in essence, is connectedness, the antithesis of the values of society like capitalism and laws of the land.
  • A spiritual state can be achieved by contemplative and ritualistic practices like prayer and meditation.
  • Many spiritual traditions like Buddhism report a higher state of consciousness and connection.
  • These states of mind need not be rare experiences of a chosen few, but can be reached in daily life by anyone.
