EMBRACING OUR HUMANNESS

WHAT EXACTLY DOES IT MEAN TO BE A HUMAN? DO WE EVEN NEED TO KNOW? LIFE IS CERTAINLY AN AMAZING RIDE, MOST OF THE TIME I CANT EVEN BEGIN TO PUT WORDS ON WHAT IT IS I AM EXPERIENCING. THIS IS ACTUALLY A WONDERFUL THING, AS THE MORE I GROW AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE, THE LESS WORDS THE BETTER IT SEEMS. SOMETIMES ON A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY IT APPEARS AS THOUGH WE MAY FEEL SAFE EMBODYING A CERTAIN 'POSITION' OR 'ROLE'. I FEEL THAT WE ALL HAVE BEEN IN THIS SPOT IN MANY PLACES DURING OUR LIVES. MAYBE AS A CHILD YOU WERE MORE LIKE THE CARETAKER OR PERHAPS 'WEARING THE PANTS' SUITED YOU WELL...MUCH OF THIS IS VERY WELL SUBCONSCIOUS AND AS WE DO EMERGE THROUGH OUR LAYERS OF SKIN, WE FEEL CONFIDENT TO SHED THESE 'ROLES' THAT WE HAVE BEEN INADVERTENTLY TRYING TO PRESUME FOR SOME TIME, AFTER A WHILE THIS CAN CERTAINLY REQUIRE A LOT OF ENERGY TO MAINTAIN...TO ALWAYS BE PEACEFUL, TO ALWAYS BE LOVELY, TO ALWAYS BE CALM, TO ALWAYS HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS, TO ALWAYS BE THE STRONG ONE, TO ALWAYS BE THE NEUTRAL ONE...HMMM, IT TAKES A LOT OF MO JO TO CARRY ALL OF THIS OUT. SO WHAT ABOUT BEING HUMAN AND ALLOWING YOURSELF THAT GIFT....? TO ME IN THIS MOMENT, TO BE HUMAN IS TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO FEEL WHATEVER IT IS THAT IS THERE. THIS HAS NOT ALWAYS BEEN A NATURAL STRIDE FOR ME, HOWEVER, THESE DAYS IT IS SO MUCH EASIER AND MORE NATURAL TO ALLOW MYSELF TO FEEL. IS IT UNCOMFORTABLE? YES! VERY MUCH. IS IT AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL? ABSOLUTELY! THE MORE I LIVE IN MY LIFE THE MORE HUMAN I FEEL AND THE MORE EFFORTLESS IT DOES BECOME. I DO STILL HAVE MOMENTS OR SERIES OF MOMENTS THAT WILL IN ESSENCE KNOCK ME ON MY ASS AND REALLY ALLOW ME TO SURRENDER TO MY HUMANNESS...THIS INNER 'FIGHT' SO TO SPEAK IS ALIVE STILL AFTER ALL THESE YEARS APPARENTLY:) WE ALL HAVE IT ACTUALLY...ARE WE RESISTING OR ALLOWING? IF IT FEELS LIKE YOU'RE UP AGAINST A WALL, YOU'RE MOST LIKELY RESISTING. IF IT FEELS MORE LIKE YOU'RE FLOATING ON A SPARKLY SEA, WELL I BET YOUR ALLOWING...IT IS VERY SIMPLE, SO SIMPLE! THE OTHER KICKER TO ALL OF THIS PARADOXAL FUN IS THAT WE INDIVIDUALLY HOLD THE KEY IN OUR HANDS TO UNLOCK THE CAGE IN WHICH WE'RE HOLDING OURSELVES HOSTAGE! WOW! TALK ABOUT A LOT OF POWER WE HAVE! YES, THAT'S RIGHT...POWER! YOU WANT IT, YOU GOT IT...NO ONE EVER GIVES IT AWAY EXCEPT YOU. IF WE DO FEEL POWERLESS ALL WE REALLY HAVE TO DO IS LET IT ALL GO...LET WHAT GO YOU ASK? ATTACHMENT! PERHAPS EVEN ATTACHMENT TO BEING PERFECT...A PERFECT REMEDY FOR THIS IS TO BE HUMAN. FEEL WHAT YOU ARE FEELING, BE OKAY WITH IT. FEELINGS ALLOW YOU TO BE ALIVE AND THEY ARE YOURS, THEY ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. NO ONE ELSE CAN GRANT THEM TO YOU OR TAKE THEM FROM YOU, SO YOU ARE TO BE FREE WITH YOUR FEELINGS AS THEY ARE. YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO TRANSFORM THEM AND ALLOW THEM TO GUIDE YOU AND LIFT YOU...ABSOLUTELY INFINITELY POSITIVELY AMAZING! LET OTHERS SEE YOU AS YOU ARE! THIS IS A BIG ONE! PUT DOWN YOUR GUARD, CRY A FEW TEARS IN FRONT OF PEOPLE, SPILL ALL OF YOUR GUTS, BE VULNERABLE, BE THERE... I NOTICE INSTANTANEOUSLY ONCE I ALLOW MY BEING TO BE HUMAN I FEEL SO MUCH MORE NATURAL. THE SPIRIT IS NATURAL IN ESSENCE. TO CONFINE IT OR SEGREGATE IT IS REALLY PUSHING IT AWAY AND SEPARATING YOURSELF FROM IT. TIL NEXT TIME, STAY HUMAN! :)
