Is It Good to Share Spiritual Experiences?
Every person who goes deeper into spiritual practices and soul searching comes across mystical experiences. We all have a logic based mind which keeps on interpreting everything on the basis of the old beliefs and pre-existing ideas.
So, whenever a person experiences something that is not in the alignment with his belief system, he starts to find logical reasons for what he has experienced and the next question arises in his mind that “is it good to share spiritual experiences?”. Well, I have an answer here for that…
Ineffable Spiritual Experiences
Like the way you cannot explain anyone how you feel about them in the most appropriate manner or in other words you cannot make them to feel the same way, likewise spiritual experiences are often hard to describe.
“Ineffable” means something that words cannot define and spiritual experiences fall into that category.
The problem in describing the mystical experiences is that you are not only unable to explain it but you yourself start to doubt it because you felt it(it was an emotional experience) and now you are logically trying to interpret it.
No matter how much experience or knowledge you have gained in your journey of spiritual growth, you will never be able to describe the strange incidents that you might have came across.
Never Share Your Spiritual Experiences with Others
Many people never share their spiritual experiences with others because of the fear to lose any goodness that it brought to them(it’s a kind of false belief) but if you ever noticed whenever we try to explain any such things to others, we are more trying to prove it to ourselves, we expect them to tell us that it was real.
A few days ago, I shared a post named “ Dreaming a Dead Friend (My unforgettable lucid dreaming experience)“ , it was a bit weird from the perspective of reasoning based minds and so I never tried to give any logical excuses, still people interpreted it in the most appropriate and comfortable way according to them, some may even would have rejected to accept any kind of truth in it.
This is the real reason why you should never share your spiritual experiences with others; you will surely lose some of your spiritual progress because of it as your own faith will be challenged.
So, What Should We Do?
Any person who wants to grow spiritually should accept any such incidents “as they are” and they should learn to let it go without giving a lot of thought to it.
But it is hard to keep it a secret! I know that feeling; we have this inbuilt urge to share our amazing experiences with others.
If you will try to suppress the urge to share your experiences then it will become another hindrance in your spiritual growth.
It is better to share it with someone you know who either has a deep understanding of spirituality or someone who will never judge or comment on it on the basis of their logical interpretation.
But once you have learned to “let go” then you can share it with others because their opinion won’t bother you anymore.
