Highly awake people tend to be ultra-conscious, which often translates into being overly critical of everything they do, and even who they are. In spite of pure intentions, good deeds and spiritual striving, the weight of self-criticism can bog the spiritual seeker down in Earthy mud and muck! No matter how hard those chakra wheels spin, there is little traction to get unstuck. A belief rises to the surface:
If I were only spiritual enough, everything in my life would fall into place.
Is this conviction keeping your contentment hostage? Are you constantly trying to “change negative thinking” or “process fears” or perfect your spiritual practices? Are you really sure you are doing everything RIGHT?
Perhaps you should learn to meditate in that Earthly mud… or better yet, just play in it!
Yes, dear seeker, this moment – as you recognize just how inadequate you are and how many more miles there are to walk on your spiritual journey – is the perfect time to take a long, deep, loving breath and exhale gratitude with a heart-felt “OM.” Put that soft Buddha smile back on your face before you read on.
Like any good, spiritual enthusiast, you likely did as instructed… and perhaps you feel better… or not. The question is, Do you believe there is an ever-evading perfect life waiting for you to ascend to it?
Rather than process your beliefs about this one, or give you some affirmations to repeat for the next 21 days, here are some essential truths for your heart to behold:
Maybe, wise one, you are already evolved and your only “lesson” is to embrace your Perfection now? Perhaps it is time to stop taking it all so seriously (as you are oh-so-beautifully conscious that you actually know you are always emanating your best anyway). It’s time to have a bit of fun for a change!
Need ideas about what to do at recess, spiritual student?
Life is an amazing unfoldment of the All That Is, ever-changing, ever-Perfect, ever-mysterious. As we awaken further to our higher spiritual consciousness, we will discover what we perceive to be obstacles along the way. Are they obstacles? Did we create them? Perhaps.
Allowing your Perfection is remembering that you are absolutely spiritual enough, your life is a Divine reflection of your expanding soul, and the present moment is where you get to embrace it… mud, muck and ascension.
Resistance is futile, yet we all seem to do it. Where do you resist? Most of us resist stepping into our glory – our Perfection. And, by doing so, we create patterns that continue to pave our roads with uncomfortable asphalt, irritating speed bumps or ridiculously steep grades. Perhaps our well-worn paths need some major work and a detour sign has directed us down the backroads of life.
Nearly all of the repeating “obstacles” in our lives are simply areas where we have forgotten our grandness.Many spiritual teachings use the word “lessons” to imply that we are here to learn. Sure, the human part of our being may need to learn a skill or two, but the spiritual truth is most of our “issues” haunt us because we have lost touch with our essence. Thus, it is not so much learning that we need, it is re-collecting.
Whether we use the word “essence,” “soul,” “Truth,” “Light”, “grandness” or “divinity” doesn’t matter. What matters is that this core part of our being is perfect and whole and is trying to reveal itself to ourselves and to the world. And, since it is eternal, it is more a matter of re-membering – purely merging our everyday selves with our Perfection.
In these times of awakening, our soul’s desire to align its Perfection with our humanness is demanding our attention. When we resist the process of this integration, or ignore it altogether, we experience the Universe reflecting back to us this very resistance.
