We Are Spiritual Beings Having a Human Experience

Who are we? Who is each of us? Who am I? Who                                                                    are you? We humans have probablySpiritual Beings having a Human Experience been asking ourselves these existential questions since human existence began. These questions arise from within as we seek to unveil the illusions of the individual ego. As we seek to understand ourselves and the meaning of life, and as we seek to find answers, our souls, our True Selves, enlightenment, and God, we can get caught up in the seeking, which itself can be another veil of illusion (Maya).

When we get caught up in the seeking, it is because we are seeking something outside of ourselves. Instead, we need to turn our seeking inward to discover and understand the obstacles within that are hindering us from finding what we seek. Once we pull down all the veils, break down the mental blockages, and push aside anxiety and fear, we will see the answers that we already have inside. Wisdom and enlightenment come from within. God is in all of us. We are all already the spiritual beings we seek to be.

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Jesuit priest and philosopher

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. As humans we are not perfect, but we can continually strive to understand and be our True Selves, the Self that is part of a greater whole, the Universe.

नर्तक आत्मा । Nartaka Aatmaa                                                                                                    —Such a one who has realized his essential spiritual nature is a Self that is only a dancer on the world stage.

– Shiva Sutra #9, section 3

  1. So true, the answers arrive when we are ready to receive them, thanks for sharing.

  2. How often I have asked those questions – what I am learning is there is no “one size fits all explanation”. It is different for everyone and everyone comes to it from their own way. Thanks for reminding me again. I want to spend more time checking out your blog.

    Also, thank you for liking my last blog post, I appreciate it very much.

  3. “Don’t wish for union!

    There’s a closeness beyond that.

    Why would God want a second God?

    Fall in love in such a way that it frees you from any connecting.

    Love is the soul’s light, the taste of morning,

    No me, no we, no claim of being…”

    Rumi
