Qualities of a True Seeker
The pre-cognition of our spiritual purpose is a revelation that arises from the encoded knowing inherent to our original nature. To be in touch with this knowing is in fact what makes one a true seeker.
To become a seeker is to begin serving the light by taking responsibility for the realization of one’s evolutionary purpose. It is to use all of the resources given to us by existence — the mind, heart, intelligence, and the powers of energy and will — to penetrate and ultimately transcend the thick veil of ignorance. For a true seeker, not a single moment passes that the inner work is not in progress. His life is completely dedicated to that which is real, and to renouncing, with courage and complete attention, that which is false. To become a seeker is to acquire a new identity — not of the ego, but of the soul. It is not just one of the many roles that we play in our life or something we do in our free time, but our very reason to live.
To seek is the most challenging endeavour in human existence. Therefore it is critical that one will develop certain essential qualities such as sincerity, maturity, inner strength, patience, determination, purity of intention, humility, as well as discriminative wisdom, sensitivity to the realm of I am and the ability to meet oneself.
Only by possessing the virtues we have described here can one persevere in the face of the unknown and unravel our final destiny.
