There are different types of wisdom that influence and guide us through our daily lives. Many of us are familiar with these levels of learning. However, spiritual wisdom can take time and great amounts of effort to understand.

There is a very profound revelation that can be found in spiritual wisdom, by which you can learn who you are and what you are like. With spiritual wisdom, you can achieve enlightenment in your deepest and darkest areas.

The hard blows of spiritual wisdom

Spiritual wisdom is not easy to achieve. Perhaps you need to lose yourself to find yourself once more. You need to close your physical eyes to open your spiritual eyes. There are several uncomfortable truths regarding spiritual wisdom that need to be accepted. These are some of those truths.

1. Meeting is never easy

An uncomfortable truth of spiritual wisdom revolves around finding yourself. Yes, this is an old idea and most are familiar with the expression. However, finding yourself includes unlearning as well as learning. If you are always surrounded by other people, you will not be able to understand this truth and find who you really are.

Too many obstacles get in the way of learning who you are. You can base what you know about yourself on how others perceive you, and this is a great influence. This is also one of the things that you must overcome and handle. It is really uncomfortable when you find yourself because many times you have to lose people and things to do. But a reference that can help you find who you are is knowing what it is that makes you feel free.

2. Understand pain during your own pain

When you were younger and someone pushed you to the ground without warning and for no valid reason, did you get angry? Did this action hurt you? I’m sure you were, as I was when similar things happened to me. I felt the same human response when I was insulted, abused, and even neglected. Now, to the truth that will set you free:

Everyone on the planet feels pain at some point. Everyone endures pain and responds differently. Over time I have learned that when someone is cruel to you, it does not always mean that they are evil. Sometimes the pain inflicted by others is a product of your response to your own pain.

One spiritual truth that can be difficult for you to carry out is to use forgiveness when you have been wronged. If you can understand that someone is in pain, you can better use your response to their cruelty to you. Sometimes you can even express your forgiveness and try to learn their difficulties.

3. Check your answers

One of the hardest things to master is self-control. Just as you learn to recognize the pain of others, you must learn to control your response to them. You must learn to stay calm during difficult times, especially when everything seems to go wrong at the same time.

Being able to control your emotions prevents the spread of negative energies to others. Energy works both positively and negatively and being able to choose the highest path promotes positive energies and improves the overall atmosphere.

4. Just know in the present moment

I guess being in the present moment doesn’t sound that difficult, but it is. Have you ever tried to do something and have only thought about the task at hand? Now do you see what I mean? It is more difficult than you think to dedicate yourself to what you are doing right now.

If you can do this, you can avoid missing your life, even if you are only present while having a cup of coffee. You must savor the moment, savor the rich, bitter taste of your hot drink. You should be here and now and not be living in the future, regardless of the simplicity and beauty of each moment and task.

5. Feel the pain

Our first instinct when feeling pain is to run away from it. Whether it’s physical or mental pain, we try to avoid feeling as much of this as possible. Here comes the truth: To truly experience wisdom, you must also be present in painful moments.

When something hurts, you must feel it, examine it, and let it move through your being. You must face everything that brings distress and then process these feelings.

The next step, after the pain hits, is learning how to heal. To heal properly, you must first feel the pain and let the healing go natural.

6. Understand the roots

Every problem and every situation begins at a root base. Unfortunately, we spend much of our time reducing symptoms in an attempt to relieve pain. We get away from the situation as quickly as possible to avoid the pain. Again, pain is avoided in favor of a quick fix, while the real solution lies with the root cause of the problem.

Uncomfortable truths reveal themselves as you search for answers. These answers can sometimes come from childhood issues or roots. These are roots that are deep and that is why they must be analyzed and separated in order to understand them. It is spiritual wisdom in one of its most primitive forms.

Spiritual wisdom gains strength

There is a need for strength in many areas of life, but when it comes to spiritual wisdom, it is a completely different level. Although these truths may seem harsh and daunting, they are gateways to a richer and more comforting life.

It takes time to reach these levels of awareness and they can be tackled one at a time when you’re ready to grow, and they shouldn’t be a chore. In the meantime, have fun; start by knowing who you are and then get out of there. Over time, you will realize how much you have accomplished and how spiritual wisdom has left its mark on your life.
