Spiritual advancement may come in forms.
A person may reach a comparatively high degree of awareness and have much light with in, they may still be unaware of any extension or opening of their soul’s gifts which are commonly associated with spiritual advancement.
While persons possessing not enough light and awareness and still ruled by the lower ego, may be able to bring forth many of the past life’s gifts and this may colour his personality and in some cases may completely take over him and feel superior to others and more important - a false sense of knowing it all.
Expression of Soul and past life’s gifts must include the qualities of the Soul - humbleness, compassion, love and generosity. So, a true student must examine his thoughts and actions on a regular basis and must purify his intentions through the blazing light of One’s Soul.
One must become aware that one’s thoughts color what comes through and one must guard one’s mind. Why is this important? A student may advance spiritually, but not evolve. Evolution and Advancement are two different things.
You must question -
Are you advancing?
Are you evolving as a Soul?
Unless we embody and express the gifts of our soul in all interactions we create, we do not evolve.
We may advance our spiritual knowledge.
We have come here to evolve.
