Two very important concepts to understand: Sufficiency and Transcendence. #beyourownguru #BYOG

Two concepts that I think are very important to understand are encapsulated in these two words. The first one is Sufficiency, and the other is Transcendence.

So for every level within you, you must reach in the first instance sufficiency…

Let me rewind, you must reach in the first instance an understanding of who you are and what you want at that level. And in the next instance come up to sufficiency for that level.

So a literal example is your material level. Once you understand what it is you want out of life in the material sense – so financially, food, shelter, clothing,a ll that good stuff, then your sufficiency point would be when you have enough, as per your own estimation.

And then once you have enough then you can be satisfied with where you are at at that level. And then you can’t transcend that, ie, you don’t have to keep thinking about it constantly, you don’t have to worry about it, you don’t have to make plans and figure out what next because you are sufficient or you have reached sufficiency.

And if you can stop using your energy and mental space for that level then you transcend it. And then you can go on and think about your mental level, your emotional level, psychological level and spiritual level.

And when you transcend each level what does that mean?

That means the energy that you’re bringing to bear on your life is moving up.

You’re releasing energy from various things to think about other things.

So this is evolution! You’re spiraling up the levels of your life.

At every level the bottom line is this, if you can reach sufficiency and then transcend whatever it is that is occupying your energies you will progress through life at a faster and faster pace because you are achieving and releasing, achieving and releasing and this cycle makes sure that your evolution does not get stuck.
