If you recently achieved spiritual awakening, chances are that you have been feeling quite lost ever since. Don’t worry too much about it. It is a natural (and a nearly compulsory) outcome of having been enlightened. There is no running away from it.
The main reason behind this anxiety is the conflict in our own minds, between our past and our present. It is not easy to completely forget all the old systems and belief-patterns which we were taught as a child.
The fact that our past very rarely complies with our present (post awakening) causes this feeling of being adrift without an anchor.
When you achieve spiritual awakening, you need to start afresh. You will no longer be able to identify with your older self and you will have to forge a new path for yourself. But the conflict inside your head doesn’t help with the cause.
Fighting others is much easier in comparison with fighting with your own self and your old beliefs. It is painful and harsh and leaves us with more questions rather than answers. It is very scary to let go of the past, with no guarantee of what is to come in the future.
Hence, your ego makes you want to cling to the security that the past has to offer. At the same time, the fact that you are an awakened Soul makes it impossible for you to not hope and crave for a new, better future.
In such a situation the urge to completely denounce the world is commonplace. Don’t worry, it is only temporary till you have found stability and balance within yourself. Having been spiritually awakened, you can no longer ignore the reality of the world around you.
At the same time it is easy to blame yourself for your past ignorance. But you need to forgive yourself in order to move forward and make the world.
The feeling of disorientation will go away eventually. You will discover that you have developed new interests. You would look for better company, people who resonate with your own world view. Don’t worry about friends from your past.
Those who care about you will support you, even in this. And don’t be worried about those who don’t support you. Just allow yourself to move with the flow instead of resisting it and you’ll find all the pieces falling into place.
