Spiritual SatNav? What's Guiding Your Journey?

Spiritual SatNav? What's Guiding Your Journey?

When we're making a journey in our car to somewhere we've not been before we probably use SatNav. So what do we use when we want to make a spiritual journey? We trust our satnav because it's got all the information needed to get us from where we are to where we want to be. It understands our current position, the routes available and the destination. I guess with a spritual journey then it's pretty much the same right?

You need to trust your guide, in this case a person, and you're assuming that they have the knowledge from their own experiences to get you from where you are to where you want to be. The analogy of a spiritual meditation guide being like satnav is useful but it's also pretty weak philosophically. Still it's a lot of fun to play with the idea.

A Physical Journey

You want to get to a location. You get in your vehicle, put the destination into the satnav and follow the instructions on the screen. Eventually after many roads, much scenery and some activity on your part, you arrive at your destination. Although it's not where you started your destination is more of the same: still physical but just a different location.

A Spiritual Journey

You want to get to enlightenment, which has no location, but you are stuck in your vehicle (body, emotions & mind), which certainly do have a location. You find a guide/teacher (satnav) and ask them the way. They give you instructions and you start to discover that you have other vehicles beyond the mind, body and emotions. One of these is stillness and within it you discover another kind of satnav. It's called Pure Energy. As you meditate on this energy it guides you in new ways to discover something new rather than more of the same. The light within reveals these new vehicles and new ways of being aware. The sound vibration within moves you in new ways too. Eventually with your inner guide and practical help from your teacher/guide you realise enlightenment. This destination isn't anwhere and is also everywhere. Being nowhere and everywhere it simply has nothing to do with "here" or "there".

A Journey Without Movement

We are so used to the idea of a journey being about "moving" or changing location. But a spiritual journey is about stillness and loosing locations. I've heard people say they are going to go to India, Tibet or China to discover spirituality. Something that is already everywhere and the cause of everything isn't going to be hiding somewhere. It's not going to be tied to any single geographic location. So rather than looking to move locations, look inside instead. That's where you'll find your inner stillness and intuition. Let the map dissolve and loose the vehicles and you will find what you've always been looking for.

The Destination May Be Too Far To Understand. But start the Journey anyway

The image at the top is from a real trip I made a few years ago. I was touring round Europe and decided to leave Barcelona, Spain and head over to my friend in Tivoli near Rome, Italy. I put the Italian address in the SatNav and well... you can see what happened. I didn't worry though because I didn't need to know the exact details of what happens towards the end of the journey. I just needed to know that I was heading in the right direction and that the destination was acheivable. So I trusted my guiding satnav and set off. The thing about that holiday was that it wasn't about the destination... it was about the experience, the journey. I knew I'd get to where I wanted to be, so I could relax and enjoy the scenery. It was a great holiday.

So when you sit down to meditate, it's nice to know you're heading in the right direction. It's also nice to know that you can enjoy the journey because your guide is there to make sure you're heading the right way.

When you're ready to start your journey then get in contact.
