These days we attend spiritual workshops. We “meet our Archangel” or we “discover our purpose” (which of course has to be bigger than being just a rosebush or a hummingbird). We need to be big, important, special – especially in the eyes of others. The aim is to deposit accolades in our emotionally bankrupt bank accounts. We collect proof of our spirituality (or even of our existence) in order to “humbly” post on Facebook. Then we graciously, in the most self-effacing efforts we can muster, thank our fans and followers. Whew! We are busy. Busy constructing an existence, a meaning. And, of course, being busy means we really don’t have to be too present in our real lives, or feel our true feelings.
He does not believe who does not live according to his belief ~ Thomas Fuller
In my reality, once you truly get on a Path, you are busy…. with a Practice! And “big moments” filter through each day as consistent as gravity, and air. A flower opens, your cat’s paw is laid on your cheek, a rush of energy sweeps through you. Have you ever wondered what fills the day of an ascetic living in a cave in the Himalayas? Or of practitioners living in silent retreat? Each day is full and complex when you live your Practice.
Having grown up in the world of therapists, and later New Age practitioners, I observed the majority do not live the life they teach. The majority teach to others what they are desperately lacking in their own lives, rather than confronting issues in their own reality. These observations may be an anomaly that simply showed up in my life, but they may also be truths? I personally do not want to follow that path – living beside myself, or living in spite of myself, rather than taking the path of having an authentic life, full of moments – big, intimate, daily, miniscule, miraculous moments!
After the first “awakening” there will be many, many more throughout your life… if you have a diligent practice. Over time, one learns to recognize the signs that yet another awakening is about to emerge and change your life, alter your gravity field, accelerate you into another galaxy, where it will take you a while to figure out (again) how to move around, how to function. It will, once again, be miraculous. I often can be found on my knees in front of my altar giving thanks that I have been shown yet another universe to inhabit that I did not even know existed. And since I did not imagine it, I also did not intention it, or manifest it. It therefore came from somewhere else.
All of us are experts at practicing virtue at a distance ~ Theodore M. Hesburgh
So after the workshop, the psychic reading, the crystal therapy, the tapping into the vortex or matrix, the astral travel, the soul retrieval, the past life exploration, the extra-terrestrial visitation, comes… your life. Fill it with a daily spiritual practice. Find a community to practice with, or create one. Stay healthy and centered – after all, you did sign up to have a body and a life on Earth. Discover fun to feed the Soul, and most of all, stay on the Path.
You will find that it is not the “Great Awakenings” that fill up life as much as the quality of all the miracles that occur in your life daily. We often miss these miracles in our search for the next “Big Moment.” The miracles live in “chop wood, carry water.” Do those with soulful mindfulness and see your life bloom.
