"You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing.” - Alan Watts
Spirituality consumes my whole life now since truly awakening into my purpose and "Divine Design".
We all have a path God creates for us uniquely. You can be a painter, a car salesman, a chef, a creative - whatever it is you are important.
Our life purpose is our Divine Design.
And your unique philosophy and beliefs are part of it too.
New age spirituality is bringing back older concepts and I'm excited to break them down for you as these core concepts have changed my perspective on life and transformed me relationship with God.
The future of philosophy
Mysticism, esotericism, and the concept of God are interconnected in profound and intricate ways.
While each of these concepts represents distinct aspects of spirituality, they often intersect and influence one another in the realm of mystical and esoteric traditions.
Here is a breakdown of their relationship and how they have formed spirituality concepts.
Mysticism refers to the direct experience and union with the divine or ultimate reality beyond intellectual understanding.
It emphasizes the pursuit of a personal, transcendent connection with the divine through practices such as meditation, contemplation, and spiritual devotion.
Mystics seek to transcend the limitations of the material world and access higher states of consciousness, often driven by an intense longing to merge with the divine essence.
Esotericism refers to the pursuit of hidden or secret knowledge, often associated with mystical, spiritual, or philosophical teachings.
It explores the hidden aspects of reality and seeks to uncover deeper truths beyond conventional understanding.
Esoteric traditions often involve symbolism, ritual practices, and the study of arcane texts to unlock spiritual insights and transformative wisdom.
The concept of God varies across different religious and spiritual traditions. It represents the supreme being or ultimate reality, often associated with qualities such as omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence.
The understanding and perception of God can range from personal deities with specific attributes to a formless, transcendent force that underlies all of creation.
God is often seen as the source of love, wisdom, and the ultimate purpose of human existence.
In the realm of mysticism and esotericism, the concept of God is often approached through personal experience, intuitive insights, and direct communion with the divine.
Mystical practices provide a pathway for seekers to transcend ordinary perception and engage in a deeper relationship with the divine essence.
Esoteric traditions, on the other hand, delve into hidden aspects of spiritual knowledge, seeking to understand the nature of the divine and humanity's relationship to it.
Both mysticism and esotericism encourage seekers to go beyond external rituals and dogmas, emphasizing personal transformation, self-realization, and a profound connection with the divine.
They embrace the mystery and ineffable nature of the divine, acknowledging that it transcends human comprehension and can be approached through intuitive understanding and direct experience.
Ultimately, mysticism, esotericism, and the concept of God intertwine in the exploration of profound spiritual truths and the quest for deeper meaning and connection.
They offer unique paths for seekers to delve into the mysteries of existence, fostering personal growth, and inviting a profound relationship with the divine, however one may perceive it.
You have to explore your own interests and make them make sense to you.
Your belief system is yours to create.
Don't fall into the box.
Leaving the Matrix into another societal box is unproductive.
Matrix = womb
Birth new ideas, new philosophies, new practices, and let the Divine Dance take you away. 🤍
