One gentle step at a time we awake to life in the spirit. This is not an over night matter although some times it can be, and a person can have a sudden awakening all at once. Our human bodies are meant to be in service of Spirit which is pure joy, and total freedom. The journey will be one of subtraction, not addition. God is not lost. We have put other distractions in the way which must become subtractions. Let it go, and be moved and breathed by the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:4-6
4 Such is the reliance and confidence that we have through Christ toward and with reference to God.
5 Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power andability and sufficiency are from God.
6 [It is He] Who has qualified us [making us to be fit and worthy and sufficient] as ministers and dispensers of a new covenant [of salvation through Christ], not [ministers] of the letter (of legally written code) but of the Spirit; for the code [of the Law] kills, but the [Holy] Spirit makes alive.
