12 Symptoms of Spiritual Awakening



Another wonderful find from a friend's Facebook page.

It comes from some kind of twelve-step/recovery programme, and it has some gems that we should aspire to, if we're not already there.

12 SYMPTOMS OR SIGNS OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENING:

1.  An increased tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
2.  Frequent attacks of smiling.
3.  Feelings of being connected with others and nature.
4.  Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
5.  A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fears based on past experience.
6.  An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
7.  A loss of ability to worry.
8.  A loss of interest in conflict.
9.  A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
10. A loss of interest in judging others.
11. A loss of interest in judging self.
12. Gaining the ability to love without expecting anything.
