As you walk the spiritual path, many truths will be revealed. This opens the mind to new possibilities and inspirations. Gathering mystical knowledge is exciting, but as the philosopher and mystic Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali so famously taught, “Knowledge without use is useless.” It’s essential to illuminate the mind, yet until you actually go through the experiences that knowledge presents, your soul will not grow. The soul only grows through experience. As you learn the lessons of experience, they turn into wisdom. Wisdom is earned experience.
To build up spiritual power and ascend, your soul must embody many spiritual truths. This takes time, patience, and persistence. When faced with new opportunities or challenges, it’s not always clear what to do. You will inevitably make both right and wrong decisions. Through it all, the soul is absorbing those experiences. As you reach genuine success, you will have learned essential lessons that brought you to that point of accomplishment. You will have gained wisdom in a part of your life, and that wisdom becomes part of the soul. You then carry that wisdom in your heart through the rest of your life and on into the hereafter.
Truth is not truth until it lives in your heart. Focus on living an intelligent, heart-centered life. Even if you are not openly rewarded for the good you do, do good anyway. It will brighten your aura and bless your life. You will bear spiritual fruits according to the degree of your efforts. These fruits are worth every labor and sacrifice as they multiply your joy and fulfillment.
