Being deep on a spiritual path is entering into the moment of the unknown. I don’t know why many things happen in the way they do. We don’t have a blueprint to life, only a road to follow. I believe our spiritual path is very personal. Being here at this time, on this planet, is very human. Being in a body is part of the spirituality of this existence, whereas many people would like to leave the body and make it unholy. But the earth, the body is very spiritual. Things happen to us in the body that we cannot make sense out of, only respond to in the best way we can; understand and keep finding the message that evolves and heals us…sometimes we are supposed to just rest and take care of ourselves and sometimes it is to take care of others. Learning to be human is most the challenging adventure there is. Most people want to forget they are human and disregard the human experience. But around us is this beautiful earth with many types of people, cultures, races and perspectives…when we can fully accept that there is no one thing, one way, but many different ways, then maybe the human race will stop fighting each other.There are many wounds to heal on this planet…going as far back as many generations for most. We carry in our cells our ancestors pain and love. We cannot live in the past, but we cannot forget it either. Forgiveness is a process of healing…for me, life has been an emotional challenge every day…and I see that in the people I work with. Our emotions are a key to understanding who we are and what we need and want. It is a road map to our hearts and bellies. But sharing personally is an intimate experience that takes time to develop with others. I believe that knowing how to communicate from the deep places, where our hearts are vulnerable, is spirituality. Not some universal Pie in the Sky… t is very much inside of each person…and the need is always to be loved. We want to be loved not for being perfect, but for simply being.
