5. Learn to Forgive.
Forgiveness is the final form of love. It is the door to spiritual awakening. When someone does something to offend you or fail to meet up to your expectations, you may feel hurt and choose not to forgive them. In spite of this, choosing not to forgive the person for their shortcoming and holding grudges against them, does more harm to you than the person. Lack of forgiveness hinders spiritual awakening. It will prevent you from growing spiritually.
In order to achieve spiritual awakening, it is important you learn to forgive anyone that has hurt you knowingly and unknowingly. Make peace with yourself and others. Forgive yourself for ever refusing to forgive others and forgive others for the wrongs they did to you. Forgiveness frees you from the burden you carry within. As you learn to forgive, your spiritual connection will be improved and you will find yourself more peaceful and calm than you have ever been before.
