” I wanted the relief of my highest callings before I had built the foundation to support them.”, Jeff Brown
This video includes an excellent discussion re: spiritual bypassing that we discussed in a previous blog post. Many points that are part of our human experience are discussed in relationship to our spiritual journey –our stories, cellular memory, the up and down of healing/progress and spiritual development, and learning how to be responsive to our selves/issues rather than unconsciously reactive.
My perspective has always been that our spirituality needs to be practical for living our lives–an embodiment of the spiritual energy blended with our human selves– a means through which we grow to live better lives, have better relationships, manage stress and even to be able to adequately prepare for the last part of our lives and final letting go.
The three men on this video touch on some of these points and make the point for self compassion, tolerance, gradual growth and “holding the space for reality”–LIVING as a human being and being able to directly experience life rather than “bliss tripping”. We all have been guilty of bliss tripping—once we realize what it is we can get down to the business of embodying spirit and be present to all of life.
We would love to hear what you think about this topic. Please feel free to leave a comment below in the comment box after viewing the video.
