Many of you recognize the hit song, On the Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga. Unfortunately, many of us are hanging right “On the edge of Glory” and need some help. We want to be lifted up to that next heaven and cannot quite get there as we cry out to God: “I’m #on_the_Edge_of_Glory_Help!”
We ask, “What is the next step and who will help me?”
This leads us to church hopping, book swapping, and a wide array of spiritual practices, hoping to find the one that resonates with our souls and will carry us beyond our current spiritual paradigm into peace.
I’ve lived through 14 different spiritual practices before I realized that what I am is a result of an amalgam of all of these spiritual practices.
Every spiritual practice has in it something honest and truthful, otherwise people wouldn’t be flocking there. Within every theory about religion or spirituality there is plenty of light for anyone to follow for a long while, before he or she gets stuck. She then realizes searching for help or guidance from something beyond humanity is the only way forward. This is the turning point to spiritual enlightenment.
I was in Nashville leading a spiritual group, doing spiritual counseling, and meditating everyday for at least an hour, when I realized that Spirit was calling me to a drastic change in attitude, relationship with the One Truth, and even the place in which I would live the rest of my life. Where I was being led was clear, but to what was unknown.

This kind of trust in your spiritual walk seems to be what sages consider the stage where insight takes the place of confusion. Even Jesus went to the desert (either metaphorically or spiritually) to get his final orders for his time on Earth.
The Metaphor of the Desert
How would I manage through the next few months? My partner had broken up with me on Valentine’s day. My mother, who I had been taking care of in my home for 10 years, was getting on my last nerve. My business was declining. Everyday I would wake up wondering what negative experience would come next and why? One evening while watching television, my roof even blew off in one harsh gust of wind. No one else’s home on the block got touched.
Yes, something was awry. I needed to keep my spiritual eyes open and be ready. I didn’t want my entire house to tumble down before I was open to receive the message.
The Buddha’s awakening is unknown. It may probably have involved the knowledge that liberation is attained by the combination of mindfulness and dhyāna, applied to the understanding of the arising and ceasing of craving. The relation between dhyana and insight is a core problem in the study of Buddhism, and is one of the fundamentals of Buddhist practice.
In the western world the concept of (spiritual) enlightenment has taken on a romantic meaning. It has become synonymous with self-realization and the true self and false self, being regarded as a substantial essence being covered over by social conditioning
Almost every scripture agree that sages and the greatest saints receive the greatest surge of enlightenment when they realize their humanness is the vehicle from which all lessons are learned. It is the Mind/Brain/Body paradigm that shifts the entire consciousness. Finding you are of the One Mind more than you are a human body will change you forever. Receiving from that Source—and only that Source—is the key to developing a solid spiritual relationship!
Now, when a life lesson happens on the human plain, I’m less likely to react adversely, as I understand that I should stand back and let Spirit teach me the lesson, lest I should be deaf to this lesson and have a harsher experience lead me to my destiny. (No one wants that.)
We all come to this Earth with a human destiny that, perhaps, we chose with the angels or with the family group of spirits that we arrived with on this plain. The familial group comes with us in every lifetime until we all find our way to the light.
Your journey may just be a helper this time. Or you may have to go through some drastic earth lessons to get there, but know that you are constantly and consistently being led my angels (messengers) in heaven and on earth.
