Why do some of us seek for higher truths?
Why is it that certain individuals are driven blindly, madly, and passionately to transcend their own limitations?
Why do we, at times, feel ourselves being compelled to improve ourselves, not only for our own sake but for the sake of a higher cause that we sense yet can barely see?
Why is it that in those precious moments when we are most conscious and most awake, we seem to intuit a deeper sense of purpose that is infinitely bigger than our personal worlds could contain?
And our own direct personal experience of spiritual inspiration is the most tangible expression of that very same drive. [source]
But there comes a time when some of us begin to recognize that spiritual experience is not only for our own welfare. Because we have gone deeply into the spiritual experience, we have discovered something sacred.
Why is it that some of us who come from a completely secular background find ourselves compelled towards our own spiritual depths, seemingly out of the blue?
