I am English writer from India. Today, I want to give some knowledge for true seeker and how is it important in our life.
How to identify a True Seeker ?
Let us see how to identify a true seeker. The one who is struggling for seeking the true knowledge. We can see visible things daily, so we believe on it. We must abandoned those physical things. There should be no doubt about the eternal Supreme. The only thing this seeker has to give up all the bad vices.
The longing for impermanence which is not left in the mind and which has taken the support of Sadguru, who is trying to live according to their teachings? He is the true seeker. What was the tendency to live to this day? Man always run away from money and body. If we want to make a true seeker, then we should abandoned that tendency. It should be heartfelt desires. So leave with such a heartfelt desire.
The inclination towards instinct subsided and the mind became retired. Then the literal knowledge of the illusions of the world disappears and empirical knowledge arises in him. Then he easily understands what is eternal and what is impermanent. The urge to associate with what is impermanent ends, and the association with that which is eternal is true.
In spiritual life, impermanent is abandoned and eternal is fully accepted. Then, doubts will come to anyone's mind here. If the one who is indifferent, the one who has completely renounced impermanence, the one who has attained impermanence, becomes a seeker, then can a worldly man who cannot renounce impermanence ever become a seeker? To accept the path of righteousness and to renounce the other way is the renunciation of the worldly man.
What is the process of Spirituality ?
It is not possible to know which path should we choose and we should choose wisdom while living a life. As long as there is bad intellect in the mind, this wisdom will not be produced. The renunciation of that evil intellect is a great renunciation for the worldly man. It is the evil intellect and the misguided that have nurtured the body intellect to this day, and it is through its inclination that life has become narrow-minded.
In such a situation, the mind never felt the disgust of the world. Now, due to wisdom, the true nature of the world is realized and the sweetness of the world begins to dissipate. Everyone should take steps begin to be taken towards Parmartha. It has explained the philosophy of life in this short book. He has preached to the general public through the mind. It has given advised to go surrender to Lord by lovely. The means of obtaining Lord is stated.
Spirituality is the upliftment of one's soul and mind. Of course, It is needful the introspecting on the qualities what we have. It is from that we begin to think about the deep meaning of our lives, and then the hope of perfection is created. There is a realization that there is something in life that is more perfect than our daily life, more than many worldly things in it, that is perfect, that gives deep meaning. Every human being has an inner desire to find out what is hidden in the world around us, what is our place in it, what is our function. This process is spirituality.
What is Spirituality and Religion ?
Spirituality and religion are not the same thing. Spirituality and religion are both part of the culture. Some person believe on God, but some person is not ready to believe on God. Both the believer and the atheist can be spiritual. Religion shows man the way to live. But many times righteousness is expressed through rituals, praises to God, worship, prayers. Spirituality, on the other hand, is not bound by ritual. Even so, righteousness, faith, and spirituality go hand in hand.
Those who are inclined towards spirituality are often also religious. The ‘Self’ is explored in various ways such as reading religious texts, interpreting them, participating in discussions and debates about their meanings, chanting, chanting the name, calming the mind, meditating and increasing the mind.
The reason for all this discussion is that in today's conflicted life, finding peace of mind is becoming more and more necessary. Life is full of temptations of many material things around us, competition for success in life, extremely stressful and insecure daily life. Successfully coping with anxiety, depression, and trauma after a calamity is as much a part of our spirituality as it is of many other things. This has been noticed from various scientific researches so far.
The mind is frustrated when there is a crisis, but the person who says, 'God wants to teach me something' or 'God does what is good' is not immediately disappointed. Changes in the nerve network in the brain of a person with a tendency towards spirituality. Favorable changes occur between the endocrine system and the immune system. It protects the person from diseases, both physically and mentally. Those who believe that ‘I am being punished for some wrongdoing or sin’ or that ‘my health is not in my hands, but in the hands of some evil force’ are more frustrated. On the other hand, those who are content in life and think that 'there is a pure purpose in life' are less frustrated.
Prayer has the Power of Human
Spirituality is used to control the over-anxiety that arises when dealing with a disorder like cancer or accepting heart disease or recovering from spinal surgery. After the earthquake in Latur, Kutch, we have come to realize that the sermons and discourses of spiritual and religious leaders are very useful in the post-disaster period. In this process, a sense of community and the mental support we get from each other are important.
It is becoming increasingly important to understand the patient's religious and spiritual perspectives when learning about mental disorders. Spirituality is also being used in mental healing. The temple, the atmosphere in the temple, the bhajan-kirtan, the remembrance of the name, the atmosphere in the church-mosque are all used to increase spirituality. Yoga, pranayama and meditation are useful in many disorders such as anxiety, depression, heart disease, hypertension. Have a habit of ‘looking’ at yourself. Can be focused. The teaching of living in the present. Such things promote mental health.
Spirituality produces hope, contentment, forgiveness, and love. Spirituality is also expressed through dance, music, painting and sculpture. An indescribable peace of mind is also achieved in the presence of nature.
Prayer also has the power to introvert and to create humility. Loud recitations of mantras, hymns recited in unison and rhythm, praises sung in the church, discourses all bring immense peace and contentment. We also see the holy literature expressing the thoughts of the mind through spirituality.
