Reading Assignment (Lesson 19 pgs. 69-90)
Pg. 69- How should a spiritual aspirant think about the prospect of “becoming godlike” and their capacity to live a life of virtue and cultivation of the spirit through scientific knowledge, practice and bodily discipline and is this possible for everyone? If so why? If not, why not?
– As the most important and only real goal in life to diligently work towards and achieve for True Wisdom on Who you are, the purpose of life and Spiritual Enlightenment.
I do not believe that this is possible for everyone in this lifetime. Most people are still living according to their ignorance, egoism, and conditioning of the world and themselves. I believe that most people know the Truth from a surfaced level but choose to believe and live a lie because they think it’s easier, or because of their Aryu. They choose to stay a slave to the ignorant mind due to fear and lack of Spiritual Wisdom.
However, I also believe that it is possible for everyone eventually, because like the teachings say, we will all reach a lifetime where we will begin to question WHO we are, leading us to what’s True. We all eventually become one with Source, which is Neberdjer.
