The Spiritual Evolution towards GOD

Whether you like it or not, whether you know it or not, secretly, Nature seeks and hunts and tries to ferret out the track in which God may be found.
(Meister Eckhart, as quoted in Eknath Easwaran, Bhagavad Gita)

There is a self within us, and there is a SELF. Every step we take is either a step forward in the spiritual evolution towards GOD, or it is a step backward, held back by our evolutionary past. The maya called life has been cleverly designed so that every step backwards is in fact a step forward as well, as it increases the pain of separation which makes us change course just in the nick of time.

Strive to find the WAY and we may in fact only make our ego stronger, wrapped in spiritual clothing. Drifting to enjoy life with a carefree attitude and we may in fact neglect the calling of the SELF. If this all sounds a bit confusing, let life show you the WAY. Just as Meister Eckhart discovered centuries ago, we cannot help being exposed to GOD's calling every step of the WAY.
