Habit: Everything is Spiritual
I believe we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. There is something about the human soul that transcends vocabulary words and science. It’s an encounter with the Divine that cannot be explained.
I love the Albert Einstein quote, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
I choose the latter. There are miracles every single day all around us if we slow down enough to appreciate them.
If you’re struggling to see any right in front of you then how about the fact that we’re floating around on a giant ball that is orbiting at precisely the right measurement because if it were slightly off we would either freeze or burn.
Have you ever sliced your finger open and then witnessed over the coming days and weeks how it proceeds to heal itself. It wows me every time.
My husband and I created these children. It’s absolutely insane. My body knew how to create a heart, lungs and a brain.
The cells that once made an ocean, a tree, or a bird are now the cells that make me. All of it is always moving and recreating. We are all connected at the source. It’s stunningly beautiful. I am humbled and in awe of creation anything I get out of my head and pause to recognize that everything happening around me is spiritual. And it’s stunning.
Just as it is beautiful, it can also be painful. That guy yelling at you in traffic because he struggles with road rage, he’s not mad at you. He’s hurting and you are the easiest target to blame right now. The person rude to you in the grocery store, most likely, is hurting at a deeply, painful spiritual level and doesn’t know how to heal. When you see that it’s all spiritual, it’s so much easier to extend grace.
If we start watching the world with our hearts instead of our eyes, we can see that everything is spiritual.
