Recently I’ve come across a good few posts on social media that have at their core one of my big button-pushers – people touting their status as a ‘spiritual person’ as a badge of honour, and frequently of superiority.
Um… Get over yourselves, guys. Because the fundamental truth is that we are all ‘spiritual people’, even those who don’t recognise it. We are all pure spirit, come down here into this physical flesh and bone suit, to experience human existence. We are all pure souls, born of divine light and love. Yes, even those who commit all kinds of hideous atrocities. Their thoughts, words and deeds come from corrupting events and experiences in their human existence, not from their Source.
Some of us may be more aware of our true nature than the majority of men, woman and children on this Earth we inhabit. That doesn’t make us better, higher status or more evolved beings. It makes us more aware, that’s all. Any other belief is our Ego coming out to play.
We are all on this journey of awakening awareness, as were all those who have gone before us, and as will be all those who are to come. There will always be those ahead of us on the road, and those behind. None are better than we are, none lesser. They are simply further, or not so far along, in their journey. When we walk down the High Street on a Saturday morning, do we consider those walking in front of us to be more evolved than we are, and those following us less so? When we are at school, are those in the year above us more worthy and valuable than we are, simply because they have learned more? Are those in the year below less worthy and valuable? Of course not. So it is on the path of spiritual understanding.
Yet those behind us on the road do not need a teacher, as we do not. They need a friend to walk beside them hand in hand as they find their own way, a friend who will encourage them when they hesitate and steady them when they stumble. And those who walk with them have their own friends, who walk further ahead, to guide and support them in the same way. And so it is, ahead and behind, as we walk the infinite pathways of understanding and truth.
My purpose in this lifetime is to be that friend, to support and encourage those who wish to increase their spiritual understanding and awareness and to step into their fullest light and power through the workshops and healing I facilitate. I also write inspirational fiction and non-fiction.
