Chillin In My Light
Throughout my spiritual practice, I have heard many times and reinforced the statement myself, "I am a spiritual being having a human experience." Most likely you have heard this statement before and believe it just like I do. However, have you ever really thought about what it means?
She states, "Your human experience is part of the spiritual journey so you don't have to walk through life expecting to live in a divine connection all the time. Aim to string together many moments of consciousness to ultimately remember that you are the spirit of love having a human experience."
The Course in Miracle states, "The light has come. It's already here."
Okay, now that I have digested these words a few times (I recommend you go back and read this passage again) I can now grasp what this means for me.
My spirit has chosen this body during this time. My spirit is my light. My spirit is what drives my consciousness. My Spirit is what drives love and a connection to the universe. My spirit is God. Whoa! That was tough to write. I just judged myself bigtime for making that statement. Who the fck am I to say that? But, wait...YOU are all of these things too. Your spirit is God. Your spirit is consciousness. Your spirit is who you really are. Have you ever sat in meditation or went out in the desert during a full moon and experienced a sense of pure calmness, love and complete trust in yourself? Don't you always feel so much better after meditation, yoga, walking in nature, surrendering your sufferings and expectations?
That being said, if I can honestly believe that my spirit with the connection to the universe rules the outcomes of my life then why is it so hard to believe and trust?
Why? Because your Ego runs the show most of the time. How do you know your ego is running the show? Well, do you doubt your self and your dreams? Do you play it safe? Are you scared to quit your job? Are you begging for a change or a sign?
You can't be chillen in your light if you are allowing your Ego to control your life. "Oh, I'll do that when the time is right? I will move in a year once I have everything sorted out." Your Ego is the lil bird on your shoulder that is in a constant state of anxiety and freakout mode. Even if you thrive from your Ego, you are still hiding behind your truth.
You are human who sets goals and conquers them. Go YOU! But, what suffering comes along with that? How many goals have you set that have not happened and you end of beating yourself up over it? That is what I am talking about. That is where the trust factor enters. If you surrender your desires to the universe and do the appropriate work, now you are in the flow. In connection. Now you are not doing it alone. Think of it as a bubble of miracles!
But you say, "setting goals and working my ass off has worked for me this far and now you want me to surrender it all to "the universe."
All I am saying is, we are here in our physical bodies wanting to live a life of purpose and passion. Spirit is already here. Light is already here. You just have to turn inward and say hello to it all. This will help take away the steps of suffering.
Next time you have a desire. Surrender it. Don't hold so tight. Let it breathe. Keep doing what you are doing, no need to think so much about it. You can create miracles if you know your soul and connection with the universe are in charge.
Love & Light,
