We are spiritual beings having a human experience, someone once said. Life is full of intrigues and triggers that are supposed to aid in our discovery of our spiritual nature. If there was no spiritual essence in life we would otherwise have the same destiny as the animals – we would live just for survival. Humanity is the closest to mankind than the other moving and non-moving living things.
Ironically, in every human activity there is usually some aspect of the spirit involved. This is what we ordinarily refer to as spiritual sleep – the inability to perceive reality without any presumptions or prejudice. It is worth noting that the modern system of education is so successful in churning out graduates but flaws in one thing alone – that all education is based on assumption since by the employed means the ultimate truth is unattainable.
Truth works in mystical ways. It is not something you can go to study in an organized system of learning. This explains why the best theologians are the most confused as far as God matters are concerned. You cannot go to study God in a college; neither can you study Him through scientific processes. These are sure prerequisites for failure. God exists behind the mind, which means all the conceptualizations of the mind are always bound to be incongruent to the Ultimate Truth.
