I find the following short description of “spiritual path” by Rupert Spira fascinating. I have not come across any other such concise and complete description! You too may find it useful to remember.
The Daily Quote from Rupert Spira, 30th August 2015
There are three essential steps in the spiritual path: the first is to notice that one is not a body or a mind, but rather the Awareness in which these appear, and with which they are known; the second is to explore the nature of Awareness and discover that it doesn’t share the destiny or the limits of the body and mind – that is, to discover its eternal, infinite nature; and the third is to live a life that is consistent with this understanding.
