Absorb What is Useful: A Guide to Elevating Your Spiritual Path

In the fast-paced world we live in, where information is constantly bombarding us from every angle, it can be challenging to navigate the sea of knowledge and find the gems that truly elevate our spirituality, expand our consciousness, and boost our intelligence.

Bruce Lee once said, “Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, and add what is uniquely your own.”

This sage advice holds the key to unlocking profound growth and transformation on your spiritual journey.

In this article, we will explore the concept of absorbing what is useful and provide you with a practical “How To” guide to help you harness the power of knowledge and wisdom to enhance your spiritual path.



Why Absorb What is Useful Matters

Before we dive into the “How To” aspect, let’s first understand why absorbing what is useful is so crucial on our spiritual journey.

  1. Discernment and Clarity: The information age bombards us with an overwhelming amount of data. Learning to discern what is valuable and relevant to your spiritual growth brings clarity to your path.
  2. Personalised Growth: Each individual’s spiritual journey is unique. By absorbing what is useful and discarding what isn’t, you create a personalised growth plan tailored to your needs and aspirations.
  3. Efficiency and Time Management: Time is a precious resource. When you focus on absorbing what is useful, you maximise your learning and minimise distractions, making the most of your time.
  4. Deeper Understanding: Going deep into the knowledge that truly resonates with you allows for a more profound and lasting understanding of spiritual concepts.

Now, let’s get practical and explore the “How To” aspect of absorbing what is useful on your spiritual journey.



How To Absorb What is Useful

  1. Mindful Consumption: The first step in absorbing what is useful is to be mindful of what you consume. Whether it’s books, articles, podcasts, or videos, choose your sources wisely. Look for content that aligns with your spiritual goals and resonates with your intuition. Avoid mindless consumption that doesn’t contribute to your growth.
  2. Meditation & Reflection: Knowledge is only as valuable as your ability to internalize and apply it. Incorporate meditation and reflection into your daily routine. After consuming new information, take time to sit in silence, reflect on what you’ve learned, and contemplate its relevance to your journey. This bridge between information and insight is where profound growth occurs.
  3. Continuous Learning: Embrace the idea of lifelong learning. Your spiritual journey is a continuous process of evolution. Seek out diverse perspectives and never stop exploring new ideas. Attend workshops, seminars, and lectures related to your interests. Be open to learning from different cultures and traditions.
  4. Engage in Discussion: Don’t keep your insights to yourself. Engage in meaningful conversations with others who share your interests. Join spiritual communities or discussion groups both online and offline. Sharing your thoughts and listening to different viewpoints can spark profound insights and deepen your understanding.
  5. Turn off TV: Television, while entertaining, often consumes a significant portion of our free time with mindless content, misinformation and propaganda. It’s time to think for yourself. Consider reducing your TV time to free up mental space and time for more meaningful activities like reading, meditating, or connecting with others while learning in a more practical direct manner of research and understanding.
  6. Spiritual Practice Integration: One of the most powerful ways to absorb what is useful is to incorporate your newfound wisdom into your spiritual practice. Whether you follow a specific tradition or have your own unique rituals, let the knowledge you gain guide you toward greater understanding and spiritual growth.

Practical Example:

Let’s say you’re interested in deepening your understanding of meditation. Instead of randomly searching the internet for meditation techniques, you choose to be mindful in your consumption. You select a reputable book on meditation and immerse yourself in its teachings. After reading, you meditate daily, reflecting on the techniques you’ve learned. You join a meditation group to discuss your experiences and learn from others. By turning off the TV during your usual TV time, you create space for this practice. Over time, meditation becomes an integral part of your spiritual journey, and you absorb what is truly useful to your growth.

In conclusion, absorbing what is useful is not merely about accumulating knowledge; it’s about cultivating wisdom and applying it to your spiritual journey. By being discerning in what you consume, reflecting on your learnings, embracing continuous learning, engaging in discussion, and integrating knowledge into your practice, you’ll find yourself on a path of profound growth and transformation.

Remember Bruce Lee’s timeless advice: “Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, and add what is uniquely your own.” This is the key to unlocking the limitless potential of your spiritual journey.
