Living Earthly Life as A Spiritual Being
by Jean Luo
What is Spiritual and being spiritual? The truth is that we are all spiritual beings inhabiting a physical human body as a vehicle to carry us on the earth plane to allow us to attend the school of life and learn through our human experiences. Our human life is spiritual. However, most of humanity is unaware of this truth and lives their lives with their head buried in the sand of an earthly material life, subsequently wandering through life without purpose while being seduced by human emotions. Thus, as a soul, we all will come to a time when we want to make sense about ourselves and define the meaning and purpose of our life. When we do so, we start to awake and start to connect to our spirit, which resides deeply in our heart. There are many ways to awake and connect to our spirit – religion, science, philosophy, life crisis, and more, etc. No matter what method or way sparks this awakening, it is completely up to each individual soul’s choice, and when we search and ask, we will be guided to find the answer.
Although we can awaken our spirit in a variety of unique ways, being Spiritual has nothing to do with following any religion, philosophy, dogma, rituals, cultures, or beliefs. Everyday life is “Spiritual” because we are here to attend the school of life through our chosen earthly life experiences that facilitate our soul growth. Our everyday actions and reactions are our unique learning experiences that lead to soul growth. The differences of how to live our earthly life lies in our individual awareness, and whether we realize that each of us is a spiritual energy in a physical existence, and that we all have chosen a purpose and destiny to our incarnation. Once we have the awareness and understanding, this insight provides the motivation, desire, and direction to fulfill our spiritual destiny as we face the ups and downs of everyday life.
Being Spiritual is about being true and honest to ourselves. When we are truthful and honest to ourselves, we will be naturally truthful and honest to others. Being Spiritual is about focusing our energy on working on ourselves – paying karma, releasing past life energy, and learning chosen life lessons. It requires hard work, patience, perseverance, and taking full responsibility to clear our deep buried subconscious energies by facing our deepest fears, insecurities, and other challenging emotions. It requires us to let go of our conditioning and to learn to detach from our emotions and the emotions of others. Being Spiritual is about creating our own reality, living our own life to its fullest potential. Only by doing this can we truly become our own Master.
How can we possibly achieve this? We can do so by learning, understanding, and living our life with Metaphysical knowledge and practice. Why? Life is all about energy, and Metaphysics is about the energy of life. Metaphysics holds the key to understanding life and how to live our physical life on a Spiritual level. Metaphysics can help us find out who we truly are through our Astrology. This is our personal connection, configuration, and relationship with the Universe. Only through this connection can we understand the importance of energy in our life so that we can learn how to play and dance with it.
Everything in life is an expression of energy in its unique form – our soul, food, thought, word, emotion, color, sound, air, wind, stars, and more! Without energy, without life! It is impossible to be truly Spiritual without understanding the energy of life on a Metaphysical level.
First of all, energy must flow, whenever energy does not flow, it becomes stale and stagnant, then our life becomes repressed and stuck, and we become depressed, unhappy, unmotivated, which leads to feelings of hopelessness. Therefore, it is important to have energy flowing in our surroundings – home, office, living space, relationships, thoughts, and words, etc. This will make a big difference in the quality of our life. The constant flow of energy brings us happiness, abundance, success, balance, and harmony. It is important to have no clutter in our space, either in our physical living space or in our mind.
Secondly, energy acts as “like attracts like”. Negative energy attracts and creates a negative reality; positive energy attracts and creates a positive outcome. Our thoughts and words create our own reality and by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. Moreover, energy cannot be destroyed, but can be transmuted. Therefore, change our thoughts and words from a negative to positive perspective, this will assist us to change our reality and create positive outcomes.
Thirdly, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The more energy we give or expend by reacting to something or someone, the more resistance or opposite reaction we will create. By learning not to impose our own will or desire onto others and not to give any energy to another person or a situation, we will retain our own power and energy to create a better life for ourselves.
Fourthly, energy needs to be in balance. Whenever there is balanced energy, there is peace, harmony, and a state of wellbeing. Life is just like the four seasons, filled with ups and downs, happiness and sadness, gain and loss, success and hardship. Life is in constant change as the Universe is constantly keeping its energy in balance. As such, the Universe will bring all sorts of changes into our life to assist us to attain energy balance. Therefore, no matter what life brings to us, it is all for our soul learning and growth. There is no “bad” experience, only the opportunity to learn and to grow from the experience. All of these are part of the process of energy balance for our soul growth. Learning to be open, to embrace and to ride with the flow of life, assists and helps us be more balanced, content and at peace with ourselves.
Just imagine, if everyone on the earth plane had the Metaphysical knowledge to follow the energy flow of life and knew how to play with it, rather than follow the man-made rules set by society, government, religion, culture, dogma, and conditioning. Close your eyes and imagine how different would the environment and life we create be? I believe that we can have a peaceful and harmonious world, but it is up to each one of us individually to create it.
Let go of the conditioning of “Spirituality” and “Being Spiritual”, learn and apply the Metaphysical knowledge to your daily life and live it to its’ fullest potential. You will be amazed how far you can go in your Spiritual advancement and how much enlightenment you can attain and how wonderful your life can become!
