"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." - Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
What does it mean to be Spiritual Beings having a human experience and how does it relate to our everyday lives?
Spiritual Psychology is founded on the principle that we are each Spiritual Beings having a human experience.
Sit with this statement for a moment and it becomes self-evident.
We are not human beings striving to be Spiritual; we are already Spiritual Beings.
Meaning, we existed in spiritual form before we were born into this physical world. First and foremost, we are eternal Souls. In the very quiet moments of our busy lives we can re-connect with this knowledge.
As Spiritual Beings Having a Human Experience, How Should We Think About The Soul?
Our Soul, that part of us that observes quietly behind what we do, think, believe and feel, existed before this human life and will continue to exist after our present physical life transitions.
For each of us, our Soul is where unconditional love, unending forgivingness, compassion, harmony, peace and joy reside. Our Soul is a little piece of the Divine, here to experience this life and its lessons. We are, indeed, Spiritual Beings having a human experience.
Spiritual Beings having a human experience is a Soul-centered approach to healing. In this approach, our daily issues and problems - including substance abuse, alcohol abuse, depression and so on - have enormous value for our Soul.
Spiritual Does Not Equal Religious
The Clearing is a Center of Spiritual Healing and all faiths are welcome.
When we say “Spiritual” we don’t mean religious. To us, spirituality is your own very personal relationship with the Divine, however that may manifest in your life.
We are all different and therefore we appreciate that our personal relationship with Spirit will be different for each of us.
We work with the Principles of Spiritual Psychology, which are universal truths cutting across the plethora of religious dogmas which exist in our world today. We recognize the power of love to heal because Spirit is love. When love (Spirit), the most powerful force in the Universe, is applied to hurt, we heal. It is simple yet profound.
Personal Growth and Fulfillment in the Soul
As Spiritual Beings, it is important for us to appreciate the value of learning and growing at the “Soul level.”
If we miss this opportunity, we’ll discover we experience the same type of problem over and over again until we learn the loving lessons that are being presented to us. Though the life experience often feels otherwise, these lessons are always positive and are always for our growth and fulfillment to higher levels.
At The Clearing we’ll show you how to view the challenges in your life as blessings and how, as you overcome them, you grow spiritually.
Love is the core nature of us all. We feel good when we give and receive love because this is the Spiritual thing to do.
What is your understanding with your Soul, especially if you are in dark times?
