Some of us experience, at some point in our lives, a strong “calling or deep desire” to fulfill ourselves beyond the mere urges or wants of the physical kind; and in a way we may wonder at our own feelings trapped behind nagging spiritual or divine questions and dilemmas, or perhaps we become just tired in our own lives’ monotony. A spiritual inquietude, or spiritual restlessness, is an “itch” or a longing, a stimulus within our pure consciousness, something that is deep within our psyche that longs “to know” (gnosis).
This longing to discover and KNOW, if it is indeed a true desire or longing, is driven by a spiritual force in us which seeks freedom; that is, it seeks a freedom that your terrestrial life or lifestyle cannot give it. Ever felt this…?? Are you going through this right now…??
Our soul is a seed merely, and throughout our lives our soul tries to get out from the oppression of our immorality or morality lack–which is the selfishness of our choices and passions. All of us feel this urge to express, to emerge, to become; and this urgency is particularly strong when we are in our adolescence and even earlier youth, which is why young people tend to make so many basic mistakes.
This is the urge of the soul-seed wanting to experience freedom, liberation and expansion through higher moral ways via our human structure; but, sadly, most people, specially most young people, ignore the calling by following mere desires of the ego in search for a fulfillment which never comes–they always want more and more because they deviate from the true path of divine fulfillment. But this happens at all ages; so be aware of it.
This situation is analogous to what we observe in the life of any plant or tree, which in the course of its existence will release or liberate from itself millions of seeds. Those seeds will be scattered in its environment in order to propagate the species. But the vast majority of those seeds, all of which feel that longing to become a great tree, will be lost.
Each of us is a seed:
1) Some fall into barren soil to never grow–i.e., lost by their own desires which never fulfill them they remain always dry and empty souls.
2) Some fall into a soil too moist and muddy–i.e., lost in their millions of opinions, set of rigid beliefs, philosophies of life, and fantastical imaginations; so, they remain always in their own little worlds, with a strong desire and faith but no truth in them.
3) But then there is the sprouting seed that is active and expands itself (divine desire for freedom), it opens and blossoms beautifully because the soil for it (the environment and knowledge sought) is perfect, destined to be–and this soul just grows and grows without end.
