One of the challenges of a highly spiritual human being is to live within the realms of both “heaven” and earth at the same time. For example, we may observe our ego’s personal issues, have profound insights about the “laws of the universe” – thus feel complete trust about Divine order within our soul – and still not have the everyday “answers” to our dilemmas which can cause frustration and doubt.
“How is it that I can commune so clearly with Source and still not be able to (insert challenge here)?”
"Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world." ~Virgil A. Kraft
Our bodies are naturally in tune with the energies of the earth, including our seasons. In the Northern Hemisphere, we are moving beautifully through Spring, and can likely feel her pull to emerge, open and grow. There is an inner sense it is time to spring forward.
If, for some reason, we feel stuck in old behaviors, habits or patterns, spending time outdoors allowing the essence of freshly fallen rain, melting snow, bright daffodils, pink blossoms and lush green grasses to remind our souls of their own nature can help us get back in sync. Unfortunately, we can lose contact with our own inner rhythm if much of our time is spent indoors, driving in our cars, and rushing through our days. We can easily fall prey to life’s “manufactured” cycles of work, lunch break, more work, dinner, mindless TV, email check, one more to do, and sleep, if we are not careful. Moreover, this unnatural cycle creates a disconnect from the inherently natural beings that we are, leaving us feeling fatigued, bored, and – yes – stuck in the old us.
