strive for a solo spiritual pathThe solo path of Independent Spirituality focuses on increasing consciousness and enlightenment, knowing and loving ourself. As the spiritual seeker progresses they will reach out un-selfishly to help others. This solo path of devotion is not the easy path comparing to religion where the person justifies their ego driven behaviors and finds support, comfort, and security within the socialization of the religious group.

Independent Spirituality is a path that the seeker/student will experience aloneness within its solo path. Yet Divine Favor. This path requires courage and inner faith.

Key Elements to Attain for the Independent Seeker:

  • Independent Focused Spiritual Devotion
  • Re-Contextualizing of the Ego from selfishness to unselfishness
  • Increase your level of consciousness and enlightenment
  • Know Yourself through The Human Design, Archetypes, and Astrology
  • Identify how to remain in the light, and avoid shadow behaviors
  • Attain Independent Spiritual Maturity through inner faith and non-attachment

Spiritual Maturity through Re-contextualizing the Ego:

Re-contextualizing the ego requires removing the focus from your self-centered interests and desires — you need to change the ego and heart from selfish/shadow to unselfish/light which is love. The ego will always exist because it induces our identity, yet it is possible to live with a healthy unselfish ego that cultivates an optimistic heart.

Identify Shadow Behaviors:
The shadow side of the ego brags about oneself, lies to the injury of others, falsely accuses others to the benefit of oneself – mostly relating to a low self-esteem. Behaviors such as backstabbing, slandering, and sabotaging others that causes injury are based on the dark shadow. Also, shadow behaviors act upon harming oneself through addictions and other self-destructive actions.

Spiritual Maturity directly relates to our personal behavior and our level of consciousness. Spiritual Maturity and Independent Spirituality refrains from an outward appearance projecting before the eyes of others of a superior demeanor, and completely avoids secretively involved in abusive behavior that causes injury that has produced a reputation among priests, gurus, and certain teachers of enlightenment. A spiritual mature person will always seek the positive and avoid causing emotional, physical, financial, or spiritual injury upon others.

Positive and negative energies exist within the world. Where you live, work, and your interactions in life are dominated by shadow and light experiences. The shadow thrives within egocentric selfishness—the light is motivated unselfish behavior toward self and others and thrive within a healthy ego.

Archetypes, Astrology, and Human Design have light/positive and shadow/negative inclinations. Ignorance of oneself and your human design allows the shadow to manifest its cunning and deceptive nature. We all experience the light and shadow aspects of our archetypes and human design.

Humans living within this complicated stressful world just get caught within their shadow web through conditioning of the media, religion, and cultures. The remedy is to learn about both aspects of the light and shadow and work hard at overcoming shadow behaviors.

As this third dimensional world pursues a “non-caring attitude,” the level of atheism is becoming an epidemic. Spiritual Maturity requires courageous effort because the dark entities will create detours within the independent spiritual path.

The Roadblock of Religion:
Pursuing a life of religion leads into shadow ego behaviors that are based on dogmatic positioning. The vast limitations within religion creates roadblocks; the ego deluded into its specialness and correctness causes a level low level of consciousness.

Most religions such as the Abrahamic Religions of the West hate one another and have a history in killing each other, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity are related through Abraham.

Other ardent paths contain cult ideology such as The Latter Day Saints, The Watchtower Society, The Family International, also including many Guru followings such as the following of the hugging saint Amma. Religions use shame, guilt, and fear that locks in the follower and in-turn causes an emotional and spiritual roadblock.

The emotions of Shame, Guilt, and Fear decrease consciousness. Ardent controlling dogma generates negative emotional congestion that handicaps spiritual progression.

Religions that teaches that their organization or group claims the truth, but outside them is considered “worldly/sinful,” and then judges you if you depart their organization or following — this path is a complete deception.

Positive Verses Negative post image

There are two energies that exist within this third dimensional world — Positive and Negative. If you ascertain the two opposing energies, you are more aware than the person who is ignorant concerning energy. The individual that comprehends the cosmic battle between the darkness that opposes the light is on the path of an enlightened awareness. The Persian philosopher and Prophet Zoroaster directly taught about the cosmic battle between the darkness and the light.

Within the modern world many spiritual seekers are observing that the gap is widening between the positive and negative. The negative is becoming to be an addiction with people who are inclined to a worldly disposition — Comfortably Emotionally Numb, Chronic Complaining, Discontented (drama queens), and continually annoyed and irritated at their fellow citizen and the events that occur within the world. On the other side, there are more individuals ever before who are progressing spiritually and learning how to re-contextualize the ego and unselfishly act toward their fellow citizen.
