True spirituality is not taught; it is caught once our sails have been unfurled to the Spirit.—Richard Rohr
In this Practical Beginner’s Guide to Spiritual Awakening, I will focus on teaching your how to unfurl your sails so that you can sail into the Beyond.
The spiritual journey is about unfoldment. It is not about addition. The paradox is that when you live in alignment with True spirituality everything gets added. Do not confuse this statement as meaning that you get everything you want.
What it means is that you FEEL fulfilled through the experience of Life pouring through you as it created you to pour through you. You are living, not from any sense of lack, but from an emptiness that is forever full.
In Ireland we represent this state of fulfilment in the fourth Treasure of the Beautiful People—the Tuatha de Danaan—that is The Cauldron of Plenty. The secret of The Caldron of Plenty is that it is forever empty and forever full at the same time.
The Challenge of Teaching Spirituality.
A Definition of Spirituality
Expected Learning and Outcomes
The Difference between Religion and Spirituality
In the Beginning
Spiritual awakening is the experience of revelation. This revealing of the True Self will allow you to KNOW that you are part but not apart from something much larger than yourself.
The intention is to present a weekly audio presentation of around twenty minutes that you will have available to listen too and reflect on. Included with that reflection will be one or more practical exercises that cultivate the practice of unfoldment.
As of writing this presentation (April 2020) the opening outline will begin with exploring:-
What is spirituality and why it matters?
- What is Spirituality?
- What is the difference between spirituality and religion?
- Spiritual Challenges.
- The Spiritual Journey
- Why Spirituality Matters?
I plan to record this presentation as if it were an experience of Satsang. That means the intention is to speak from the heart rather than read a script.
I will be assisted by imagining I am speaking to you in the way I do so with my God daughters. This will I hope give you a more intimate experience rather than listening to a script.
This audio recording will be available for free download here.
