Ordinary, many people confuse the “Inner Research” with the “Spiritual Research”, but they are not the same thing and this should be understood, because understanding such differences is fundamental.

With the term “Inner ” we can intend the True Nature of a Human being, the True Self, what everyone of us is in his deepest levels, behind the thousand masks of our personality conditioned from subjective experiences and social influences.

This is the most real part of ourselves, and we’ll define it as Being, Essence, because it is our essential part who contains the major potentials and the genuine pulsions who could lead us to an harmonic existence and provideto us better skills for an interaction with our lives. Briefly, it’s the keeper of all our essential an most genuine energies and possibilities. When we are “far” from our Essence (our True Self), so identified with our personality, we live an existence far fromour roots, with very little possibilities of experiencing happiness and fulfilment.

To realize our True Nature, we must first understand how we are structured, what functions draw our existence ( mind, body, emotions, instincts, etc…). This is the field of research who is explained in the well known precept “Nosce te Ipsum” , “Know Thyself”, snd this field if the Inner Research.

It would be useful to remember that Inner Research is all except a vague and casual path, far form life; on the opposite, it is the only concrete way to be the most possible “in touch” with reality, cultivating the maximum of our vitality, a greater passion and awareness of ourselves, our desires and will. An Iner Research is a complete study about ourselves.

The term “Spiritual”, is intended the whole field of what trascend the matter, personality, the visible and noticable effects, and even our individual, True Nature- it’s the Cause, the Source of the Material.

This field of research,, seen, from a most objective point of view, is very far from our actual possibilities. Such field gives the possibilities answers to questions such as what are the origin of the Universe, if we are guided in our life or we act by ourselves, the origin of humanity, her purposes and her future. The Spiritual research is a Path of inquiry and discovering of the meaning of life and Truth, intended in the most deeper and trascending meaning of the term.

It is possible to devote our life to an Inner Research, namely to a self realization, without feeling the wish and will of continuing a Spiritual Research, but it’s not possible to enter in the field of a Spiritual Research without first have begin a serious path of Inner Research.

This happens because we can’t pretend of understanding and realizing the nature of Truth- the primary cause of all things- without having firstly emancipated ourselves from the mechanical habits and conditionings who determine our personality. So we have first to realize, at least partially, ourselves.

About mr Sarmoung

Andrea Dandolo je pisac i istražitelj razvoja svijesti i duhovnosti uključen u razotkrivanje drevnih učenja s ciljem olakšavanja unutarnjeg razvoja ljudskih bića. Jedan od načina kojima se time bavi je i kroz blog koji je preveden na engleski, španjolski i od nedavno hrvatski. Od rane mladosti je u svijetu duhovnosti i rada na sebi sudjelujući u radu grupa koje potječu direktno od Gurdjieffa, tj koje su bile vođene od strane samog Gurdjieffa U skladu sa drevnim znanjima, naglašava razvoj svjesnosti kao primarno sredstvo za psihološku transformaciju i duhovnu osvještenost individualaca. Karakteristike sistema koji predlaže su jednostavan jezik i moderni prijevod drevnih učenja kao i njihove praktične primjene u svakodnevnome životu. Njegov blog čitaju ljudi iz svih krajeva svijeta. Samorazvoj je ne religiozni i ne dogmatski put; sastoji se primarno od naprednog dostizanja viših stanja svijesti, p prisustva i konačno od ostvarivanja svoje prave intimne prirode, koja je poznata u mnogim tradicijama pod imenima poput esencija, duša, biće. Kroz takav razvoj individualna osoba ulazi u nove dimenzije svijesti koje mu omogućuju da vidi stvarnost sakrivenu iza iluzija. To mu omogućuje kreiranje osobnosti neovisne i otporne na vanjske situacije i vanjska uvjetovanja. Posljedice takvog razvoja su oštra inteligencija, izvanredni kreativni kapaciteti, ravnoteža i smirenost u svakoj situaciji i stabilno stanje višeg stanja svijesti koje je poznato u drevnim tradicijama pod nazivom “buđenje”.
