Level 1- Lesson #7 Book Reading: pp. 69 -90
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 so? If not why not?
I think it is possible for everyone to “become godlike.” We are all God, so becoming Godlike would only involve remembering who we really are. I think that no matter where a person is in life, steps can be taken toward achieving the purity that allows the true Self to shine through. From this lesson, it seems like living a life of virtue and cultivating the spirit through scientific knowledge and the Shedy disciplines are what lead to that purity.
