One is aligned with life when there is alignment with the present moment. When one is pulled out of alignment with the present moment, it is then that the nonsense of the childish mind begins.
Spirituality isn’t magical, it’s life. If we are alive, we are spiritual. Whether we are aware of this or not, it doesn’t take away from the fact that we are spiritual in nature. Lets take a practical approach to our spirituality so we can narrow down our blocks to this awareness. Take a look at one of the most common realities of life; everything that happens does so in the present moment. This is the most common reality of life, but why is it so hard to live in this moment? We hear it all the time ” live in the now, all we have is now, be present” yet it is so hard to remain present. Why?
What I have found to be the one thing that makes living in the present moment so difficult, is our inability in keeping the mind aligned with it. So many things pull us out of alignment which makes one prone to whatever childish conditioning is in place. This conditioning is different for everyone, but the nature of this childish misalignment is the same. If this misalignment doesn’t occur, the opening to be controlled by our childish Conditioned Mind will not occur. This misalignment is so subtle, but this is what makes it so difficult to be aware of it. The point of this is to show the mind will not stay aligned to the present moment without practice. It’s only because of the way it has been developed that the misalignment occurs, but understand it will not align on its own. The mind will have to be redeveloped. This is when one becomes aware of their spiritual nature because when the mind remains in alignment with the present moment, one is aligned with life. If you can develop the awareness of what takes you out of alignment with the present moment, you will discover the secret of what takes you out of alignment with life and the childish mind will simply fall away.
