How often do you give yourself credit for how far you’ve come along your spiritual path?
When I look back at where I started on this path more than 35 years ago, it is amazing to realize how much I have learned, lived, and grown. Taking stock of what I’ve learned through life experience is often awe-inspiring.
There are concepts that blew my mind in the first 10 years and seemed too far-fetched to even think about that I now not only fully embrace, but understand that science now supports those ideas.
Abraham has often said it is not words that teach but life experience. There’s no denying the phenomenon of channeling (we ALL do it!), the power of the mind and heart, or the ability to shift energy on the fly when you’ve experienced it over and over again. Those examples might be easy to imagine.
How about shifting quantum possibilities? Parallel universes and alternate realities? Past, present and multiple lives? Life between life (no such thing as death)? Those ideas might seem truly far-fetched…until life experience makes them real.
Medicineless hostpitals in China, Tibetans monks, and the shamans of Peru all understand how to instantly heal the body, even if they’ve never seen the inside of a “civilized” western medical facility. Yet, most western doctors find it hard (if not impossible) to believe the healing can happen without surgery and drugs.
There is a lot that we, in the West, are only just beginning to learn that the rest of the world not only knows is true but are regularly putting into practice. The “science” that we hold sacred has only been around the past three or four hundred years. That’s barely a blink of an eye in comparison with the age of the planet and how long humans have walked upon it.
It is interesting to me that my mind and heart has expanded what is possible, I’ve learned the science behind spiritual teachings, and through it all I have a deeper, more meaningful connection with the Divine than ever before.
If you are new to spiritual teachings, there may be some things you are learning that are hard for you to grasp. Be gentle with yourself. When you learn something new, hold it in your heart and feel if it resonates for you. If it doesn’t let it go. Even if you reject something now, it is possible that in the future your life experience and science will show you, firsthand, the full truth of the teaching.
Even if something resonates for your without a logical reason, it has something to teach you. Be open to it.
If you’ve been on this road a long time, as I have, you are probably nodding your head as you are reading this. Isn’t it wonderful that all paths lead to the same place?
