Being Human

I went to a spiritual fair a couple of weeks ago in the Cleveland area. I enjoyed the whole experience, but the main reason I went was to attend a seminar by James Twyman. I also had the opportunity to meet with him in a small group before the talk. He spoke for over two hours about many wonderful things and introduced several new and different concepts.

The concept that most resonated with me was, "to spirit your way through a problem and not spirit your way around a problem." In other words, it's okay to be human. Even though you know things like "everything happens for a reason" and "everything is the way it's supposed to be," it's okay to feel your human feelings. Go through the pain, grief or whatever. Let your spiritual beliefs help you THROUGH these feelings. Don't "use" your spiritual beliefs to go around your feelings. Even though we're working on evolving and enlightenment, we're still human. If we don't allow ourselves to feel our feelings, we set ourselves up for future problems either physically, mentally, spiritually or emotionally.

I guess I needed to hear that, so I'm assuming some of you may need to hear it too. It's like if I really believe in the things I say I believe in, why am I feeling grief, pain, depression or whatever I may be feeling? The answer is simple... I'm human. And I'm okay with that.

Love, Paula

  1. This is something I've been thinking about lately, as well. I feel it's very important to accept and learn from our feelings.
