My spiritual journey is asking me to be human. In fact, it is showing me how prized this tactile place is. But for years, I tried to pretend that I wasn’t human. I shunned the heaviness of earth and chose the clouds of heaven instead. This left me a wisp of a person with little substance on the ground. It put a child’s face on my humanness and kept me from being a woman out loud.
But now I know that I am here to be a full-fledged human being. I am here to feel, to know, and to experience the depths that this experience affords. I was born to touch, to taste, and to sense all of the emotions that my soul longs to feel. And this means that I must dance with my shadow and accept parts of my humanity I’d rather not. But when I do, the rewards are life-changing. I see my pristine soul. I see the perfection in everyone because I am living with expansive love.
You are here to know more love than you ever thought possible, through your human experience. So don’t beat yourself up for having one, because you are supposed to make mistakes. This is how you grow.
Yes, your life might get messy, but orderly stagnation will never provide growth. So allow yourself to be human, and then be grateful for what you get to live out. Then carry this precious wisdom into eternity with thanks for the souls you grew with.
By allowing myself to be human, I am seeing a brand new world. It turns out that paradise does exist on earth, and what a gorgeous paradise it is! During these times of human transformation, we simply have to remember this and create from a place of love. You see, our spiritual evolution isn’t about bringing earth up to the airy-fairy clouds; it is about integrating deeper experiences into this magical realm. That is what the years ahead entail. And you are living your courageous life because you accepted the shining challenge.
