Why is your own spiritual truth so elusive?

Why is spiritual truth so elusive? Why is it that matters of spiritual significance are so hard to verify and validate? How many of us have been pondering hard on this subject for quite sometime? What it comes down to is that your spiritual truth may feel so elusive possibly because of several factors.

First, many seekers are using the wrong modes of seeking. What do I mean by this? Firstly we try to relate and uncover spiritual truth and reality with our own thinking faculty. This will lead us to nowhere because spiritual reality is what is encapsulating our limited thinking faculty. Spiritual reality is in a way 'beyond' the normal thinking mode assigned by a personality/self. No offence, but most people are doing this precisely. As such believers can ONLY believe and NOT experience divine spiritual reality.

My first experiences of awakened consciousness were during moments of deep emotions and mindfulness. Very significantly, during these moments, my thoughts and awareness were much reduced as I allowed my emotional being to connect to the higher power. In a state of no thought (Yes and I mean not a single thought or judgement), we will experience ourselves clearly as an all-pervading being. It is during these moments that one discover that the world and ourselves is not what it appears to be. And we suddenly understand what the ancients Sages from various traditions were talking about.

Second by being conditioned by societies' beliefs, we start to undermine our growth. Your upbringing very much demarcated what should be real and what's not. And this is supported by a very convincing structure based on scientific proving and visual/experiential validation. You get into the space of belief vs fact and that creates where you are, and what you can create.

Let me illustrate this point further... Since birth, everything from the education you have received to those important people in your life have been telling us what is correct and what is not. We all have been brainwashed to think like one another. As such our sense of identity has been influenced by our fed information and beliefs. Do you know that prior to any acquired learning, a child relates to the world very differently? Much of how we perceive the world is learnt... and is fundamentally different from our natural way of referencing. However, learnt ways are certainly not negative; it is just that modern societal influences tend to suppress and discourage certain in-born cognitive abilities such as intuitive clairvoyance. And intuitiveness is a necessary ingredient for efficient spiritual navigation.

Of course, finally, we think we know it all. When we think we know it all, the thought of 'I know it all' will block us from knowing anything deeply. Why this that so? Because a 'know-it-all' will not seek to know deeply and therefore will not go deep enough. This head space stops you from asking and questioning to get there.

This is similar to what you have been taught about the law of attraction. When you move into the space of lack, you only attract lack. Mindset is the essential opening or blocking of your give and receive in this life.

The biggest question I have been getting lately is how to I open up to my own intuitive nature? It is by just allowing it to already be there, as it is, that will give you what you seek.
