A Brief Look Into My Spiritual Growth

A Brief Look Into My Spiritual Growth 

By Immeria Lübbers

The thing that I am most passionate about is finding true happiness. I am deeply grateful to have discovered the journey which led me and ultimately helped me achieve just that. I’ve always imagined my life on earth as temporary and therefore, refrained from being possessed by material gains, social norms, peer pressure and the like, which I agree are reasons that deprives one from living their true, authentic Self.

Coming from a background where religion played a significant role in our upbringing, I deviated from some of the teachings which didn’t reconcile with how I saw the world. I battled with failure, never seeing it as an option: only, it proved to be my biggest teacher with a valuable lesson at hand. It took me years to nurture and understand my path towards enlightenment.  Then one day, out of the blue it happened….I was literally HAPPY (Having All Peace Power to Yield). Since then, I am living a harmonious, balanced and peaceful life. My manifestations through self-love and self-forgiveness quantified amazing results.

The outcome: that long-awaited growth into my own spirituality!

Stand By You

Standing by someone is beautiful and part of humanity. We support one another out of love and respect. We are there for our friends and partners in good times and in bad times. No matter what happens, we want to stand by our loved ones. Right?

What does it mean to be there for someone? It means offering your loving support to someone else without expecting anything in return. This is possible if you have learned to love yourself, unconditionally.

Here’s why: Anything you offer in the world, must live within yourself first. Otherwise you cannot give to the ‘outer’. You might think you can but then its based on a need for yourself. A need that you subconsciously feel the ‘outer’ should fulfill through your own expectation. At the end, you will be the disappointed one.

Loving yourself enough not to give your own power away when standing by someone means allowing others to freely express themselves, without judgement. A good way is to detach yourself from the results of your needs and others with 100% awareness and to listen to yourself and others. Offer your advice only when asked. Do so entirely without expecting anything in return from any friendship.

Practice this with your children, family members, friends, etc 🙂 Oh and do listen to this wonderful song that inspired me to write this blog!  I’ll Stand by You by the Pretenders ://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maAyfcO-X3k
