You are already on the path:
Spirituality is a simple, honest, and humble attempt to find answers to some of the most important questions of life. In a world where you are constantly being offered material things and experiences that you don’t even need, it is hard to believe and trust in a spiritual process that can easily be misinterpreted and misunderstood.
We live in a culture of doubt, where even to believe that such a thing as Spiritual Awakening is real, is difficult. This is what makes meditation and spiritual quest a difficult thing to pursue. Not because there is something inherently difficult in meditation, but only because we have not created the right social conditions to support it. We have to fight our way through social conditioning before we can find ourselves.
Whether you want it or not, and whether you strive for it or not, there is a part of you that has already begun the search. The search began the moment you recognized yourself as a separate individual and started asking the questions, “Who am I? What am I doing here? What is my purpose in life? Where did I come from?” Self-inquiry takes root once.
Once the seed is planted, you cannot destroy it. Some seeds germinate quickly and some take a long time, but all will find their ultimate destination, in this life or the next. In a way, beginning your spiritual journey is to recognize that you are already on the path.
