“The All-Important Application of Spiritual Truth”
Spiritual truth can be the greatest liberator from an unfulfilled life. Jesus once said, “Know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” Spiritual truth is hidden deep down within the unconscious of every human being. It is the kingdom of heaven within. This enormous spiritual mystery and truth exists within every living soul. These truths can be uncovered in two ways. One is through daily meditation, which opens the inner spiritual eye. The other is through intellectually coming into contact with the assertions of higher consciousness that may be found in books or learned from others.
Experiencing spiritual truths firsthand, as glimpsed in the eye of the soul or through clairvoyance in your inner mind’s eye, is by far the experience with the greatest impact upon your psyche. The entire premise of spirituality and what it promises is an opportunity for a better life. However, without application, it will not be possible to improve one’s life. If there was something missing before the possession of spiritual truths, it will remain missing. While “knowledge is its own reward,” as a wise person once observed, it will fail to improve one’s life unless applied to daily living. To simply know spiritual truths is not enough to improve, enrich, and elevate the quality of one’s life. Thus, we see that first comes the knowledge and then, of equal importance, is its application to life’s pursuits. Without such application, spiritual truths have no practical value in life, either physically or spiritually.
