I was recently asked, “how do we guard against self-deception while on our spiritual path?”
This is an excellent question for those of us who sincerely want to evolve in the higher dimensions and want to support our growth process and not just grow when we are challenged and forced into it.
If we stay honest with ourself and are always hungry to know more than we do, because we value our own growth over that of our ego’s opinion and how we look to others, we will do okay. We must stay open and be willing to question our own and other people’s ideas and concepts and perceptions of reality. Question everything over and over again and be prepared to trade up when we find new concepts or perceptions which seem more evolved than the thoughts we hold or have been working with.
Truth cannot be written in stone. It is valuable for us to know that all states of enlightenment are relative. The journey in consciousness awakening to itself is never-ending. Hopefully, we will outgrow our beliefs and understandings many times over during the course of our lifetime.
