Why Acquiring Knowledge Gives You Confidence and a Happier Life

Spirituality is reaching frenzied new heights.
It seems that way.

Are you someone who wonders what all the fuss is about?

When I say ‘spirituality’, this is vastly different to religion. Worlds away.

The idea of spirituality encourages freedom of thought and action by following your own unique path to understanding life and forging a way to happiness. Religion usually encourages one to follow rules.

“Awakening begins when a man realizes that he is going nowhere

and does not know where to go.”

Georges Gurdjieff  (Influential spiritual teacher of early 20th century 1866 – 1949)

Many people still struggle to make sense of life, some are bored, some frustrated, some sad and distressed. That’s the main reason I wrote the book “How to Get Anything You Want – Just Like That!”.

Why Do So Many People Still Struggle to Make Sense of Their Life

A strong spiritual “muscle” makes it easier for you to have a happy life.

Your spiritual muscle turns life’s confusions into clarity, and the darkness into light. And once you have clarity and light, you have greater confidence; something you’ll always keep.

For many their spiritual muscle is sluggish and under developed.

You’ve heard the term “use it or lose it”, the more you exercise a muscle the stronger it gets. It is the same with your spiritual muscle.

How do You Strengthen Your Spiritual Muscle?

All it takes to start is to put in a little effort to acquire knowledge about life.

While it is most helpful for you to learn about how life works, how thought works, the brain, body, emotions etc, if that doesn’t yet appeal, then start by acquiring any knowledge that is new to you.

Life” after all is everything, so your topic can be anything.

The idea is to get yourself to open to new ideas and acquire new knowledge.

“If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.

Henry Ford (1863 – 1947)

How do You Acquire Knowledge?

You may have found yourself wondering how something works, how to develop your skill in a certain part of your life, or to explore a new hobby.

If so follow-up on it.

Otherwise discuss ideas with a friend or choose a moment to contemplate.

If it’s hard to find time to contemplate, use moments such as before you get out of your car at home. Sit there for a few minutes pondering life.

Effort? Uh Oh.

As with exercising your body, you need a little effort to exercise your spiritual muscle.

If it’s been underutilized it will probably need a little coaxing and this is normal.

Stick with it. The rewards are HUGE, so it’s worth doing.

“Those at the top of the mountain didn’t fall there.”

The first step is the hardest but the good news is that the spiritual muscle has hidden secrets. The more you exercise it the less effort you require over time because you’ve overcome the inertia and the strength of the muscle builds exponentially:

  • Your mind starts to effortlessly gather information from myriad directions
  • You start to get amazing insights about yourself and life
  • You develop a natural curiosity about life, drawing you to even more discovery and happiness
  • Connecting the dots becomes obvious to you

You do need to keep your spiritual muscle running, but as with any vehicle, it’s more effort to start and easier to keep going because you’re already naturally motivated and enthusiastic about doing so.

What Else Do You Get From a Strong Spiritual Muscle?

It encourages you to

  • think for yourself
  • to think independently
  • to trust yourself
  • to rely on yourself

As Well As:

Encouraging you to keep an open mind, even when you already believe you’ve reached a conclusion.

There is much we don’t yet know about life, our brain, our body, what is happening on this planet and in the universe – from all perspectives: government, health, food, water, financial systems, science etc.

New information can overturn what you’ve always believed, and that’s good. A strong spiritual muscle ensures you are open and ready for that.

If Acquiring Knowledge is New for You…

… in other words if you completed your “education” years ago at school or university and have since done little learning, then it’s important to get going again.

If after a while it all gets a bit much, then feel free to plateau and do a little stopping and starting.

You’re the boss of your body however, so you’ll know when it’s time to continue exercising your spiritual muscle. Eventually the skill of constantly making new discoveries becomes just part of who you are.

So Remember…

A strong spiritual muscle takes you directly to an exciting, confident and happy life. Give yourself the best gift in the world and use it.

      Thanks for your thoughts, yes I agree an effort is required so is participation in life. Sometimes effort is seen as a drag, but often only a little effort is needed to acquire knowledge to get on the path to confidence and happiness – and get really rich rewards.

      I just had a quick look at your site – very helpful. I’ll spend some more time on it today.
