The realm of Spirit works in mysterious ways.
It’s actually a funny thing, the idea that we humans might have complete knowing about anything. True, we can become celebrated experts through educational attainment and research, or deeply knowledgeable through experience, but how can anyone proclaim to know that they know the complete picture of all? The highly ascended teachers on Earth who I’ve spent time with have all embodied a deep sense of humility in their personal practice, a profound sense of devotion, and a willingness to take action in what ever way Spirit calls, regardless of the results. Ironically, this willingness and openness is precisely what allows them to channel Sacred Truth and act as Divine Teachers to those who seek their guidance. With that comes inner knowing, and that is a tool I personally have found more powerful than anything else.
The more I seek to embody this example that’s been demonstrated to me, the more I am willing to disconnect from personal association with the wounding, blockage, and reactive tendencies that I witness within my body, and the more I allow Spirit, consciousness, to enter the dense realms of small self, the less I have any opinion or judgement about right, wrong, good, bad, higher, lower, or any comparative label related to my own, or anyone else’s path.
Most prevalent in my own journey has been the polarity between a deep inner knowing that this Spiritual work is exactly what I’m meant to do, and the ego/inferiority complex associated with needing to be successful, seen, recognized, heard, or otherwise acknowledged as an individual. After all, spiritual ascension is about releasing the ego. How awful to find out how prevalent it’s been in my own journey! It is one of the longest running threads through for me in this life, and as I’ve continually shown up to do the inner work, it’s now accompanied by a sense of grace, compassion, and humor for how insidious this ego, ahamkara, sense of separateness, is within my being.
Who am I to make a judgement about anyone or anything when I have seen that the threads of all humanity’s suffering, of all psychological disorder, of all emotional pain, of all ego and inferiority, of all atrocity, of all things that I may judge or label in another are potentials within myself? Every being is showing up on our path with an incomprehensibly vast and complex energy field filled with lifetimes of history and experience, trauma, karma, soul intention, and agreements to experience suffering, complete old contracts, and subject themselves to the school of life on Earth for the evolution of their souls. It would be incredibly small minded of me to label or dismiss or judge another being through my own limited perspective of their path, simply because of the reaction they evoke in my own small self, or because I have some idea that the way they’ve reacted to a lifetime of experience about which I have no personal understanding is wrong.
"We’re all connected, we’re all interrelated, we’re all doing our part in helping the whole upgrade to a way of being that is easier to be in, and part of that dance is in making mistakes, learning from those who show up in a moment of need, seeing that for all of us there are myriad forces at play, and learning that compassion is an important key in us all coming to embody a way of living that allows harmony."
