We all know them, the spiritual/metaphysical folks who walk around claiming to dwell in a space of peace, love and joy all the time. They tell us to bless and love those who harm us and all will be fine. You know, the kind of people you want to bitch slap and find out what drugs they are taking so you can enjoy some too?
Well, I pose this question to them, where is their humanness? I think many people simply don’t understand what it means to be a spiritual person. It seems to me they believe that denying their humanness is being spiritual. I consider myself to be a very spiritual person but I, in no way what so ever, walk around in a state of peace, love and joy 24/7. I could not do this even if I tried to. Maybe it’s because I am all about truth, seeking it, finding it, living it, being it.
I came to earth to experience the human condition and that is exactly what I am doing. I am here to experience all the joys, and miseries, that befall the average human being and boy oh boy am I! In this lifetime I have suffered from financial woes, heartbreak, uncertainty, illness, anger, frustration, grief, and failed relationships. I sometimes feel sad, lonely, and heartbroken. I sometimes feel jealously, fear and rage. It seems to me that to pretend I am so spiritual that everyday life does not at times get me down would be a huge lie and that is not in keeping with who I am. After 30 years on a spiritual path the one thing I can say with absolute certainty is, it’s okay to be human. Not only is it okay, it is what we are supposed to be. Why else would we have incarnated on 3D earth as human beings?
My sense of the grand scheme of the Universe is that to deny our humanness is to return again and again, life time after life time, until we do experience the full spectrum of being human. So, that being said, there is no way I’m pretending anything. No sir, not me. I am going to scream in pain when I feel pain be it physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. I am going to say the “F” word when conditions warrant it. I am going to tell Goddess exactly what I think of him/her when the pain gets too great. And yes I am even going to cuss Goddess if that is what I am feeling. I sense this is my last incarnation on 3D earth and I’m not taking any chances on having to come back to do it again. I am pulling out all the stops this, hopefully, last time around. I am giving full expression to whatever I am feeling, be joy and happiness, or deep anger and grief. Full expression of the latter can be ugly my friends so you may not want to be in the line of fire when I get upset.
Also, reincarnation aside, as Cheryl Lee Harnish says so beautifully; “Our soul’s truth shines in being who we are. We cannot hide, control or deny even one small part of ourselves without hiding our light as well.” I find this statement to be oh so true. The ugliness I sometimes feel and exhibit is as much a part of me as the beauty I often feel. Why deny it?
In closing I say, let’s raise a cup to being human and giving full expression to this condition no matter what it looks like. WooHoo! And don’t take my beliefs as gospel check out the Consciousness Studies program at IMU. Dare to raise your own consciousness and discover your own truth.
I thought it would be fun to post my dreams and give folks a chance to comment on their meaning, should they care to.
I do not have dreams every night that are worth posting, however, I usually get 2 or 3 a month that are notable so when I get them I will post them.
Here are 3 dreams that I’ve have had in the past 4 weeks.
I dreamed that everything I did turned out right. In the dream I was positively mystified and in total disbelief that this could be happening to me. I kept saying things like, “How can this be?” and “This just does not happen to me, ever!” and “This isn’t right.” Saying I was mystified was an understatement!
I dreamed that I was out walking in my own backyard. It was a glorious day and everything was in bloom and many things were fruiting. Also, there was an extraordinary amount of wildlife in my yard. There were all sorts of birds and animals and many of them were not indigenous to Maine. I was able to touch them and pet them and I was experiencing a state of complete joy.
While observing this wondrous scene I accidentally backed into/bumped against one of the large, low branches of one of my apple trees and the branch broke off. Inside was a wonderful bee hive dripping with honey.
I immediately became frightened because the bees were obviously agitated at this intrusion. A voice spoke gently to my mind and said, “The bees are responding to your fear. Calm down and the bees will calm down too.”
So I took a deep breath and put myself into a state of peace and serenity and instantly the bees got calm and went about doing what bees do. I was able, then, to walk among them without issue and even able to collect some honey. It was delicious!
I dreamed I was an observer watching our universe. It was collapsing, or rather condensing, into the present moment. I saw the past catch up with the present and I saw the future pull back into the present. At dreams end, there was only NOW.
My thoughts on Dream #3
I believe that this condensing of time into the present is happening right now so I’d like to explain what this means to the human race from my own sense of things.
I believe that more than ever, if you have not tackled your baggage/your issues, they will be brought to you full force for you to clear up right now. No more pushing our ghosts to some dark recess of our mind. You will have to look at them, feel them and make peace with them.
Not the kind of peace where you say you have consciously dealt with it and moved on. Statements like that most likely mean that you have walled it off from your heart, not truly faced it, felt it and accepted it.
I’m talking about the kind of peace you get when you bring it into your heart and feel it. That may mean facing unimaginable grief. I’m talking wailing and gnashing of teeth, vomiting, writhing on the floor in emotional gut wrenching agony kind of grief.
The peace that follows such a heart felt event is one of surrender, grace, acceptance, love and forgiveness. It is a peace that passes all understanding. Until you deal with your issues heart on, as opposed to head on, you have not truly dealt with them.
The other thing about the past catching up with, or condensing into, the present is that of karma. Karma that has not been equalized will have to be. And, good karma will come back instantly or nearly so. Seek to do good things and good things will be given in return absolutely in the moment.
I have talked about the past so now I’ll talk about the future. What does the future collapsing or condensing into the now mean for us? It means instant manifestation. Whatever you place your intention on, intention with feeling that is, you will get instantly or almost instantly. This bodes as a warning as well as something good. Be careful what you wish for!
It behooves us now to be exceptionally self-aware. Be aware of your thoughts and feelings at all times. We have moved into our fully realized Creator-selves now and that brings both reward and burden. The burden being to always make decisions based on love and for the good of all rather than fear, anger, frustration or hate. Still, I suppose, a few instant “Ping Backs” from fear, anger or hate based decisions will cure us of acting from any space other than love pretty quickly, don’t you?
You see, we are no longer children in the eyes of the creator. We are fully realized beings and it is time we start acting like it. It is time that we take full responsibility for our actions and if we don’t, well, we will know it instantly.
All for now, folks. Sweet dreams!
