Spiritual Awakening, Growth, and Enlightenment/"Youth"


I have a debate on the topic "Youth of Today are driven by Materialism" and I have to speak AGAINST the topic. Please help me with some points. I thought u could help with points related to your topic.....

Dear Harsh,

I really do not have much to say on this topic, except that my son, now 28, became interested im meditation at age 9 or 10, and is quite awake and conscious now.

Also, I wrote this recently in a new book I am working on:

"Fortunately, this awakening is happening with increasing rapidity throughout the world today. Young people and old, those who have been on a spiritual quest for only a short time, and those who have been pursuing it for many years, decades in some cases, are now waking up. Our future looks bright."

Namaste, brother

I can answer any existential question - i.e. "Who am I?" "What am I here to do?" and "What is the meaning of life?"


I was on a spiritual journey for twenty years before awakening to my true nature. Am a regular teacher at Esalen Institute (www.esalen.org). Website www.jimdreaver.com
