As a seeker, you may be wanting to know the level of your spirituality. If you ask yourself about how you are faring in spirituality, your mind will provide a favorable answer. It will tell you that all is well and that you are second to none.

Do not trust your mind.

Measure your spiritual level by asking yourself the following questions:

Do I see God in everyone?
While it is very easy to see vices in others, their virtues are rarely visible to us. Always thinking good of others indicates that you are seeing, or at least trying to see God within everyone.

Do I make an attempt to control my desires?
A seeker on the spiritual path grasps the truth that desire for the world is insatiable and that nothing of this world will travel with him to the next life. Therefore, he learns to deny himself many of his material desires.

Do I need to be with people or gadgets all the time?
Solitude is a great companion of the individual wishing to pursue the higher truths of life. A seeker enjoys spending time alone with his mind.

Do I delight in speaking and hearing about God?
As the seeker makes progress on the devotional path, he loses interest in talking or hearing about mundane matters, whereas the topic of God becomes highly interesting.

Have I become kinder, gentler, and more compassionate?
As God enters more and more into the heart of the aspirant, his mind starts to reflect the divine qualities of God, such as gentleness, kindness, peace, and compassion. Use these guidelines to measure your spiritual growth.
