Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
We are not a human being having a spiritual experience. We are a spiritual being having a human experience.
In the seeking of spirituality, we address many aspects of who and what we are and becoming. If this examination is for spirituality, it is the spirituality of our soul we are seeking.
Sometimes we are just too busy being a human being we forget to be a spiritual being. What is the difference?
Each and every lesson of our human being colors many aspects of our being. Our character is built upon all the experiences of life and how we handle our challenges.
As we are diamonds in the rough with a responsibility to polish as many aspects of ourselves as possible in this learning ground, seeking the spirituality will be the light that shines through all those aspects. How we polish any aspect is with the cloth of love or the rough cloth of experience without our understanding.
As we choose spirituality in our efforts of life, we are choosing to be in raised consciousness of self as well as others. We do not harm. We also try to do good. We can express in happiness or sorrow. We see life from many aspects and learn to live in the ones that enhance the spirituality of the soul.
It is the soul’s journey we concern ourselves with in spirituality. This is the eternal journey of who we are and what we are becoming through the earth experience. The earth lessons are what teaches us to be spiritual (or not) in all our challenges and opportunities.
It is only the body’s journey we address in human existence. This is temporary at best and has no place in our eternity.
