Sometimes travelling on this spiritual journey I find it difficult making decisions. Once you start discovering Brahman, the Supreme Spirit, which is eternal, unchanging and pure you begin to realize that the mind and body are the source of impurities and bondage, this is called Maya or illusion. This means that our thoughts, desires, attachments and senses are illusionary and only the Supreme Self that is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent is the eternal truth.
Even when one is on a spiritual journey, most of us still have worldly duties and responsibilities such as work, school, family etc. So figuring out the best path can be tricky when you begin to recognize the Maya in everything. But we all have an inner guru that will guide us towards the best action, this is the true Self or Atman. Just like when we walk we don’t have to think about taking the next step, it’s just a natural occurrence. The best answers come when we remain silent and let life take its flow.
“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself…”
~ Paramahansa Yogananda
