As we are going through topics after topics in the Foundation Vedanta Course, we are coming closer and closer to the core of the Vedantic teaching. As we come closer, we are experiencing spiritual unfoldment.
The core of spiritual unfoldment lies in recognising our true nature as Divine and divinising our vision of the world. Gaining this wisdom is a subtle process - hence, we are required to learn the scriptures.
The process starts by setting up goals to become a better person and working towards that. The definition and concept of a better version of ourselves are different for each of us. However, efforts in any field gives results - in acquiring spiritual knowledge efforts are extra-ordinarily effective.
We gain a sense of fulfillment and hence, equipoise in life - the two most powerful tools to deal with the joys and sorrows in life. We step into the path of Shreyas and become a positive contributor to life. We give more than we take from the Universe.
Please set spiritual goals for yourselves and measure your own personal growth.
May the Lord bestow you with everything you need in your aspirations.
Best wishes on the auspicious occasion of Navaratri.
