Poetic Philosophy: The Diamond
How does one find spiritual awakening? I’ve often thought about this but I would be a fool to say that I know the answer. However, love is the first emotion that comes to my mind. One must be love and learn how to show love. For most of my life, I didn’t know how to show love. Loving myself was the biggest challenge, let alone having the ability to love anyone else. Your love for yourself and your love for others will grow as you grow: mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
How did I begin loving myself? I put that mirror up and reflected on all the ways I communicated a form of negative energy. For instance, the way I would misjudge someone because of my own insecurities or the countless years I spent eating away my sadness instead of working out and taking care of my health. I would sit and complain about how no one wanted to be my friend but that was not the problem. The problem I had was- I didn’t love myself and I never searched inside myself to discover why.
Search inside yourself.
What if I told you that – inside yourself is where the ultimate love resides? Its where the diamond is. The diamond we all search for. Call it happiness. Call it success. Call it whatever you want. I believe that loving myself and loving others authentically has led to my success in business and life. Now, it’s not that easy to just go grab the diamond of love. You have to search and grow into spiritual maturity. The spiritual maturing process means observing and dealing with one’s: ego, lust, hate, envy, jealousy and a plethora of other ego dissolving challenges. Love in the brain. Love in the heart. Love Love Love!
When I searched inside myself and dealt with all my issues that promoted a negative energy- I found nothing but true love. Love is the key to spiritual growth. But, you have to be careful. It is often easy to fake love. To follow the illusion (maya) of love. Spiritual improvement is a slow processes and you are your own guru. You have to be loving and show your love with the utmost truth and vulnerability.
There are many ways to show your love and search inside yourself for the answers you seek. There is no right way. I started by just being kinder. Kinder in all my relationships. Kinder to my mom and sister equally as kind to a stranger. Kindness is the precursor to love. You cannot love without being kind first. I would catch myself being: negative, angry or judgmental and consciously make an effort to listen and observe first. What is spiritual growth anyways? It’s a journey filled with observation, effort, mistakes and growth. Kindness will guide you, even in the toughest times.
Again, search inside yourself. This requires some solitude and quiet time. Spirituality and practice go hand in hand. Practice your kindness, practice your love and practice your curiosity. When I reflect on my personal growth, from weight loss to financial success, I can confidently say none of it would have happened if it weren’t for the help and advice of others. The key? People showed me a lot of love. Friends, neighbors, strangers and co-workers, all loved me enough to share their time with me and look out for me when I was lost in life. Loved me enough to let me discover my spiritual awakening on my own. It’s a cycle of love. The diamond that you search for is inside of you wrapped in a blanket of ego and only love can help you touch it.
Love Love Love = Spiritual Awakening.
