The correct information is the beginning of evolution. Getting the right information makes us fearless, because fear comes from not-knowing/ignorance about who we are and what are we doing here. If we would have the information that our existence is beyond body and we are indestructible souls made of pure Light, can we be afraid of anything? The right knowledge comes by Grace, by blessing from the higher planes of existence. The tools through which the information comes to us can be very diverse, a person, a book, a quote, a realization that appears in our mind, … So the mean through which that information comes is not very important, but what we do with that information matters.
True important information comes when we are ready for it. Real knowledge is graded, it evolves, so we may know something today which is correct, but after some time we evolve so the information becomes obsolete and we get to a new level where the previous “correct knowledge” is no longer useful. As an example: normal people in order to remove obstacles that come through eating animal related food become vegetarian which may improve the chance for those being to evolve, because evolution needs a healthy body and mind. When a person already reached a certain level, and the body is “enlightened”, whatever they eat is burned inside the body so there is no negative effect on the body-mind-spirit structure.
While I was young, I used to eat meat and all the animal-related foods, which seemed correct and represented the true knowledge and diet for me at that point. Later on I became vegetarian, which some may say that transformed the previous information into an incorrect one. It may look like that. But how I see the things now is, “Everything is correct!”¹ at a certain moment. But while we are stepping on the path of own improvement, the correctness also evolves, so we are allowed to access new intelligence, new knowledge which renders the previous knowledge obsolete or making it look rudimentary.
That’s why I don’t judge people who are addicted or eating meat since I have been there too, so I understand them, because I was one of them and I was one of the biggest advocates against removing the meat from the diet.
Be advised that real knowledge comes also with a risk of developing superiority complex or/and transforming oneself into a militant for external things, which is again a deviation from our soul real purpose. These are few of the traps on the path of self-refinement and spiritual evolution.
It’s hard for me to see people smoking, drinking and taking drugs, because I know from all the points of view what is the disturbance that each of them creates in the body and mind of a person. They create mental, body and energetic damage. I know from my own experience that we are always aware, at least to a certain level what may be the repercussions of using such things, but everything happens in due time. The process of self-refinement is slow for some and for others is fast, all according to the person’s body, mind, character peculiarities, and past lives experiences. Don’t rush anywhere, but the beginning of the journey starts with the decision to improve something in our lives. As soon as you make that decision the real journey to self-refinement starts.
When we step onto the path, the Universe/God/Highest Power starts pouring Grace into our life, true knowledge is unlocked, and old distortions come to the surface to be dealt and addressed properly. So for some time it may look that all hell broke loose, and our lives are in a continuous emotional roller-coaster. The trick of the system is that when we go back to the “old us” being scared or tired of so many things happening in our lives, life may calm down, may come back to looking tranquil, because we have to assume that it was all a mistake, but as my dear Teacher use to say: “In order for a boulder of gold to become a nice golden ring, it has to go through fire and hammering”. Like this is also about personal spiritual evolution, good things come with a price and good quality human beings are tested through hardships and throughout time.
Failing to properly address a distortion or an issue, makes that issue manifests over and over again until the right action (or no action) is there or/and until the lesson is learned. After we think that we learned a lesson, the test is released. It sounds complicated yet it is not. It is exactly like at school.
We sometimes believe that we manage to tame anger and violent behavior, but whenever we believe that, life will create a circumstance that will definitely tell if we evolved out of the distortion or not. It goes the same with whichever distortion or bad program that we’re trying to transcend. That’s why the process is a very long and tedious one, so we have to arm ourselves with patience and humbleness and a lot of courage because we are to meet our deepest fears and demons. Like the Guru of my Guru said: This is a path that many have started to walk on, but almost as many have perished due to misuse, abuse or so many other reasons.
May Blessings of Higher beings of Light be with You dear reader, may you spread your own Light onto this shadowy world we live in!
¹ “Everything is correct” was the sentence that a wise man , said to me after (I was) experiencing a close to death experience. From that moment on whenever I managed to remember, I took everything easier, since everything that happens is correct!
