Seven Sure Signs of Spiritual Sleep

posted by Guy Finley

It is possible for the willing soul to awaken from its spiritual slumber, but such freedom has its cost: We must catch what compromises us, realize the fact of it, and then see how our identification with that unconscious character causes our continuing sorrow. Now, here’s the encouraging news: as we cease being identified with this unnatural, false self, our True Nature reveals itself. The sleeper is awakened. Real strength appears. The Light of a New Life shines within us, dispelling any dark cloud before it has a chance to form.

Following are seven sure signs of being spiritually asleep. Take each example and make it a separate self-study by meditating on both its unseen nature, as well as its detectable effect on you. Ask to see what you need to see about yourself in order to awaken. You will be set free. 
You are spiritually asleep if: 
1. You spend time thinking about the lives of others, and how they ought to live.
2. You talk excessively.
 
3. Your first inclination is to meet what the moment asks of you with a “No!”
4. You are unable to say, “I’m sorry,” when it is appropriate to do so.
 
5. You are always on the move, in a rush, and unable to be at peace with yourself.
6. You harbor a single enemy in your heart.
 
7. You believe that our world is the way it is because “they” are responsible.

    I am mentally ill and I wonder if my mental illness may contanimate other people’s souls causing them to be spiritually asleep and to miss opportunities to awaken?
    I seem to always with out fail attract people who are either bible phoebias or atheists who reject the bible entierally both online and offline.

    How likely is it that these spiritually awake people like Montalk or other articles on Google search actually live in a higher dimension and only come to earth once in a while to post an article?
    I have asked these people and never get replies as if I am singled out by fate to be doomed with others who are extreme.

    Very real and valuable. In addition, I think that spiritual sleep can have a healing purpose like physical sleep. Some people bears within themselves deep ancestral hurts.
    When profound and pure love strikes them, they will fall into a spiritual love so they can make peace and transformal the deep double-bind hurts that they have received from the past lifes of their ancestors.

The Beginning of Real Gratitude
To have real gratitude, to have that fullness of heart that, by its greatness, fulfills the one who holds it, begins with allowing God to give you a portion of His Life... a gift one can only receive once he stops giving himself what he thinks he must have to fulfill his life.
