One of the things I witness all too frequently is how little people show up in their own lives. That may seem like an impossible statement. How do I not show up in my own life, when it’s my life? Allow me to explain.
Greetings, and Happy 2017!
This morning I was on Facebook and I saw that someone I know had liked a page from a “Happiness Coach.” I clicked on the link and saw that this coach has over 252,000 page likes! Not to dismiss this person’s work, but what a perfect representation of where humanity is still at…a kind of “fluff over function” mentality that leaves the collective constantly searching for the next thing to give it a momentary reprieve from its pain and suffering.
I know most Americans woke up this morning to news that shocked them, whether they were happy or not about the results of the election. A man who has no military or political experience was just handed one of the most powerful and influential positions in the world. It is unprecedented in the United States.
The spiritual path comes in all shapes, sizes and difficulty levels. There are teachings on the planet geared toward every level of seeker imaginable, and each is perfectly placed to appeal to those for whom its lessons are targeted.
"Get over it."
There was great wisdom in those words…..if only he had consciously directed them at himself.
A Message from The Kumara Center for Spiritual Awareness
An unfortunate byproduct of following the spiritual path, for many seekers, is the desire to leave the world altogether. In fact, it is precisely this desire that has brought many of them to their inner work in the first place. This is a trap.
