ABC's of spiritual evolution beyond physical and materialistic
It is now well understood that humans have the innate potential to learn and make anything and everything subject of study including them. However, due to so much importance on belief thinking, conditioning and rote learning during upbringing and schooling, the potential to know oneself and real aim of life gets all the more dormant, I wrote on a blog.

In other words, both our rational thinking skills, discerning skills and self-realization skills remain under-developed due to stress on materialistic success, gratifications of the lower instincts and mundane living. We get shaped into a hardened ego-personality during our formative years to live a distorted physical life.

Consequently our awareness about our non-physical and spiritual reality or inner-spirit remains hidden underneath the darkness of the ego-personality and the potential to knowing our 'Real or Spiritual Self' remains unattended for its development.

Spiritual evolution is the process of becoming aware of our non-physical inner being and uncovering it by removing the veil of our ego. In other words, it is the process of inner awakening or self-realization by working on inner potential of rising of the consciousness beyond the body, senses, mind and the ego and being our Real Self.

Here is the ABC of spiritual development

A: Acknowledge that you are a spirit with a physical body to begin to understand yourself and your world-view

B: Be ready to pay attention to inner potential to know our true reality beyond the physical and materialistic by reading scriptures and commentaries on spirituality

 C: Contemplate and meditate for 15-30 minutes daily to quieten your mind educated through physicality and material success

D: Develop the equanimity attitude with non-reaction to physical life outcomes

E: Empathy for all by treating them as spirit like you
