How should a spiritual apparent 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?
A spiritual aspirant is a person who wishes to experience Spirit, the essence of everything and is everywhere. To experience Spirit at its truest essence is to become godlike because when you can experience the Divine and become one with it you are in control of your true nature. This means you have purified the mind and have reached the goal of Nehast.
If one has reached the goal of Nehast one has followed an authentic religion. A person has gained control over the ego. They are living their lives in complete accordance with Maat and have an understanding of the wisdom teachings. The person has followed and sustained a diligent Shedy practice and as they experience the physical reality they have been able to remain focused and pointed in the direction of the Divine. If a person has reached Nehast the person has reached a high level of accountability in that they are aware that all of their actions, thoughts, and speech create their reality from the past and into the future, therefore they are aware of the ability to create their future in alignment with achieving the ultimate goal of Nehast.
It is everyone’s right and privilege to make the choice and to follow through with their choice. A spiritual aspirant find a Spiritual Preceptor who can teach and guide them, however, the work must be done by the spiritual aspirant. If a spiritual aspirant remains focused on this goal every part of their live will become in alignment with Maat eventually.
