As we grow up we learn about who we are by watching and listening to other people, in the same way as we learn a language.
I don’t know either Mandarin or Portuguese because I was raised in an English/Spanish speaking household and saw and heard people speaking that particular language.
We naturally take on the culture and customs we are raised in, and someone else born and raised in Japan will see, hear and learn that one.
In exactly the same way as we learn a language, we also learn about who we are, and what our life is about as we watch and listen to the people around us.
Currently, most people see and hear very little about direct Spiritual Awakening other than in stories about people such as Jesus Christ, the Buddha, the prophet Mohammed or Lao Tzu, all beings who, in the distant past, had such a direct experience.
There are currently few cultural messages that make it possible for people to realize that Enlightenment is for them, right here and now.
If you have any doubts about this, ask yourself how do you actually know that Spiritual Enlightenment is not your natural state?
If your answer is that it just isn’t available for you, then check these out:
Do you have a belief that you are not good enough for such a profound awakening?
Do you think that it is somehow wrong, or even maybe, arrogant to believe that you could awaken into our sacred source?
Does it maybe seem wrong or unthinkable?
If your answer is yes to any of the above, then you are living out an old narrative that you were taught at the same time as you learned language, one based on a deep misunderstanding of who you really are.
You don’t actually need to be limited by your upbringing, these are new times with an updated narrative - that direct spiritual enlightenment is in fact your natural birthright.
