“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Teilhard de Chardin
We are all born and we all will die. And in between we eat and sleep, work and play, dress ourselves, drive in cars, pay bills, mow our lawns, raise children, marry, divorce, fill out paperwork, earn degrees, are hired and fired, on and on… And in the midst of all the physical events our spirits are growing. Our spirits are being shaped. We learn and explore, we open up, we shut down, we experience grief, we experience healing, and hopefully through the many ups and downs of our internal experience we learn to love.
When we are children and growing up we possess an innocence that as we continue to grow up is lost piece by piece by the negative influences of this world, like fear, and competition, selfishness and greediness.
We find out that the money, the looks and the ego don’t bring happiness to our spirit. Our journey for our inner peace begins when we start to seek the simple and beautiful things in life, those little things that really matter counts.
Because the false powers, the ego, the selfishness and the greediness, are what separated us away from the creator in the first place. And it is our journey, in light and love and happiness and kindness, that we return to the path of our way back home to the creator.
After all, we are spiritual beings having a hu-man experience. Hu means God so it would seem to mean that we are God-man and all we can ever do is have a spiritual experience–we seem to be thinking otherwise. Nothing we have ever done can affect who we really are. We are spirit–pure love,we have merely forgotten it. Once we re-member we have re-turned home–right here right now, for love is all-encompassing not just in some special place called the spiritual world.
Love and joy come effortlessly, effortless because it is who we are. Effort is of the ego. If you don`t work hard for it then you won`t get it is a classic belief manufactured by the ego. All search is also of the ego. The one you are searching for, the one you are trying to obtain in the myriad of things is–You. You are wholeness, it is time to–feel who we really are. It is the silent observer who needs to show up in the world right now, so others will take notice and be encouraged to follow.
So, today I am grateful that I am ready to become a leader and embrace the world joyously –practice makes perfect or simply–fake it `till you make it. The more joy we experience the less suffering we want to experience. Sooner or later we will give up suffering altogether and embrace joy, love and happiness. We won`t have to do anything for it because that is who we are. We won`t care what anyone else thinks for no-one is worth compromising our happiness for. Sooner or later others will be affected by our happiness and will have no choice but to embrace who they truly are as well. We are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. We are here to learn. We are here to go through this process that is life. And we are here to share these feelings with others. Let’s make it happen!
