Excerpt from "Finding Soul in Work and Life"

by Prafulla Raval and Vasant Raval


Four Stages of Transition to attain spiritual life

Spirituality transcends religions, rituals, dogmas, and rules. We should know the role of spirituality in our lives and how to get it, trickle by trickle, until our bucket in a systematic way. This could be explained through four stages of transition; Perceive, Pick up, Prepare, and Proceed. First, we look at the current state of things to decipher why we continue to remain unhappy throughout our life (Perceive). Anne Lamott, a witty writer of fiction and non fiction books would probably describe it as the “abyss” we are in. We have fallen into the abyss, so there is a chance to restoration, new beginning, a change of track. A first step toward the restoration is to understand why, despite everything that we may possess, we are unhappy. Second, we need to comprehend-or as we call it, Pick-up the wisdom of the ages; the so-called lenses that will help us gain a new perspective on our unhappiness and do something about it. In search of these lenses, we look at karma, a metaphysical view of life and its purpose, a view that has shown “staying power”. Here, in plain English, we present the key concepts and disrobe karma from its myths. Third, we Prepare: we examine life and work in the context of karma, to help us make the change, to lead ourselves to the right path to lasting happiness. In the final part, we Proceed, that is, begin our journey to effect change using the newly found pyramid. Living by the pyramid, we believe you will succeed in achieving lasting happiness.
