Not too long ago I wrote a post about how I was making my spiritual and self-help practices more a part of my daily life. Well, I’m also doing something else. It may seem a little crazy, but I believe it’s going to be good for me.

If you know Farscape, then the name Pa’u Zotoh Zhaan will be familiar to you. For those who aren’t fans, she was a Delvian Priestess. She was a 10th level Pa’u, and attained another level during the show. The idea of attaining levels held some appeal for me, and it got me to thinking.

When you’re following a path that doesn’t have writings and rules rather than a set, written one, how do you know if you’re making any progress? You can guess based on feeling, but you never really know. Using Zhaan and the Delvian Seek as inspiration, I devised a way to keep track of my spiritual and personal progress. I created a level system.

I made up a spreadsheet with nearly 50 personal and spiritual goals. Each goal has a range of up to 100 points. I total the points, divide by 100 and that is my current level. After making the initial sheet, I am a level 8. during meditation I even received a name for what a student of my path is, so I know I’m a level 8 ____. (I’m not ready to share the name for my path or my name for god just yet.)

It feels good to have an idea of where I am on my path. I’m also using this sheet to help me remember what goals I’m working toward. As I study and practice, I’ll add points to represent my progress, and thereby gain levels.

I was a little leery of sharing this at first, but I don’t really mind if people think I’m crazy or weird. Maybe what I’m doing will help someone or at least be entertaining. I’m also curious to know if there are any faith systems out there that have a level-based progression system, and this post may get someone to tell me that.
