Could the Dalai Lama actually be following me on Twitter? I’m now getting his quotes several times a day. I think this one is a good one for meditation today.
The message of love and compassion will travel far and wide if all who follow a spiritual path work together in harmony and mutual respect.
Those of us following a spiritual path tend to feel alone, like the odd-balls in a room. Alone, we walk into the one and only metaphysical store in the area to get crystals or sweetgrass or Reiki healings, but we hesitate to tell our coworkers or family about what we’re doing. See, in our world, it’s okay to be obsessed with sex, as Fifty Shades of Grey has proven. It’s also okay to praise God in church every Sunday.
Being spiritual is so much more than once-a-week, and it is so much more enriching than a roll in the sack with a handsome billionaire with a penchant for causing pain.
What it means to me is accepting my own divinity, loving myself and those around me, loving the past and what it taught, loving the future and all it can bring. It’s a reality far beyond the one I had been living before.
It took me a long time to acknowledge to my friends and family that I’ve been writing with Spirit for years. In my mind, I was traveling alone for a long time until I made a handful of friends through the website, ChannelingErik.com (I’ve written about it before. Check it out in my archives.)
Lately, I’m noticing that there are more people around me who are walking a spiritual path. I wonder what would happen if we all “came out of the closet” and admitted the truth to those who walk with us in our daily lives. Imagine what kind of a world we would create if we all could realize we are not alone in our journey to enlightenment.
It’s a beautiful thought, isn’t it? Can you feel the love, my friends?
