靈性演化的四個階段

這個生命是我們的意識之旅。我們的身體和頭腦僅是我們的意識用來旅行的工具,為了演化的目的,去獲得經驗和學習。我們的靈魂有選擇在許多的宇宙層面之間降生;我們選擇了地球,因為某種類型的演化在這裡是可能的,專屬於我們人類構成的演化。這是二元性的世界,極端的現象體現的地方,無數的生物相遇的地方,現實的繁多聚合的地方,無終止的戲劇和幻象無處不在的地方。在這個次元,我們有覺醒的集體任務。有四個明顯的階段勾勒出我們從合一到分離,再回到合一的心靈之旅。

無意識的合一是生命的第一階段。從我們在子宮內受孕的時刻,一直到約十八個月時,我們經驗到合一的狀態。嬰兒在自己和他人與這世界之間,經驗到敬畏、驚奇和沒有分離。觀察者與被觀察者是一體且相同的。與所見的一切合一,樹木、鳥兒、天空、風、雨、母親、父親,每件事物都在創造嬰兒的自我感。在這種狀態下,世界就是他自己我,自己就是這世界。由於嬰兒不知道這經驗的獨特性,甚至不知道自己是經驗者,這是無意識的

無意識的分離是下一個階段。無意識的分離是下一個階段。在這裡,嬰兒開始發展出分離的自我感,但他並不知道。嬰兒進入二元性,並開始分辨什麼是我,什麼不是我。世界現在被理解為與自己分離的。由於小嬰兒沒有意識到他離開了合一,這個階段可以被理解為無意識的分離。在這階段,嬰兒從經驗到世界在自己的內在,到現在經驗到世界在自己的外在。人類生命被經驗為一組關係,其中的一切被視為主觀和客觀交互作用的動態。這個階段一般會持續到成年期。

有意識的分離在這之後。這個人開始認識到他實際上離開了合一的狀態,現在以一個獨立的人存在著。對於過去的合一模糊的記憶開始覺醒。一個人察覺到某些東西確實喪失了,與他人和世界分離的感覺增加了。在一個人進入成年期時,對於個性、獨特性和意義的追求,開始失去了意義。分離的痛苦或對於合一的嚮往,點燃了下一階段的開始。

有意識的合一是我們靈性演化的最後階段。在這裡,一個人尋求再次發現生命的合一。他開始詢問關於人的存在、生命意義的問題,並渴望溶解分離的幻象,特別是那些使痛苦永久存在的幻象。人們通常在他們生命的某些事物到了需要改變的頂點時,來到這裡。有些人並不知道有離開分離的道路,而可能不會開始這個 關鍵探索,或者直到他們的生命幾乎過去時。在這最後的階段,人類開始對於更深真理和更高實相的精神追求。他們踏上了心靈道路上,並有意識地從分離走向合一,從收縮走向擴展。這個階段透過覺知和果斷開始,因此可以被理解為回到有意識的合一。

你在什麼階段?

你有沒有意識到這趟旅程、這個追尋和這對家的返回?

4 Stages of Spiritual Evolution


This life is a journey of our consciousness. Our bodies and minds are merely a vehicle through which our consciousness is traveling, acquiring experience and learning for the sake of evolving. Our soul had a choice among many cosmic planes for incarnation; we chose Earth because a certain type of evolution is possible here, one that is made unique by our human make-up. This is a world of duality, a place where extreme phenomena manifests, a place where a myriad of creatures meet, a place where a plethora of realities converge, a place where the drama is unending and maya (illusion) is everywhere. Within this place, we share the collective task of awakening. There are four distinct phases that outline our spiritual journey from oneness to separation, back to oneness again.

I. Unconscious Oneness is the first stage of life. We experience a state of oneness from the moment of conception in the womb until about eighteen months of age. A babe experiences awe, wonder and non-separation between oneself, others and the world. The observer and the observed are one and the same. Merged with every object in sight: the trees, birds, sky, wind, rain, mother, father; everything is a part of the babes personal sense of self. In this state, the world is the self, and the self is the world. Since the babe does not know the uniqueness of this experience, or even know itself to be an experiencer of it, this is an unconscious state of oneness.

II. Unconscious Separation is the next stage. Here, the babe begins to develop a separate sense of self, but does not know it. The babe enters duality and begins to distinguish between what is ‘me’ and what is ‘not me’. The world is now understood as being separate from oneself. Since the young babe is not yet conscious of its departure from oneness, this stage can be understood as unconscious separation. In this phase, the babe moves from experiencing the world as being inside oneself, to now being outside oneself. Human life is experienced as a set of relationships, wherein everything is now reorganized into a subject object dynamic. This phase generally continues into adult life.

III. Conscious Separation follows this. This person begins to recognize they have in fact departed a state of oneness and now exist as a separate being. A faint remembrance of the oneness that once was begins to awaken. The person becomes aware that something is indeed missing, and the sense of being separate from others and the world increases. The quest for individuality, uniqueness and significance that has characterized one’s growth into adulthood begins to lose meaning. Either the ‘pain of separation’ or the ‘yearning for oneness’ inspire the next phase to begin.

IV. Conscious Oneness is the final stage of our spiritual evolution. Here, one seeks to once again discover the oneness of life. One begins to ask questions about ones existence, life’s meaning and yearns to dissolve illusions of separation, particularly those that perpetuate suffering. People arrive here generally when their life comes to a point of culmination where something needs to change. Some do not know there is a way out of separation, some may not embark on this quest at all, or until their life nearly passes. In this final stage, the human begins its spiritual quest towards deeper truth and higher reality. They step on the spiritual path and make conscious steps from separation towards oneness, contraction towards expansion. This phase is initiated through awareness and decisiveness, and can be therefore understood as the return to conscious oneness.

What phase do you abide in?

Have you awoken to the journey, to the quest to return home?
