It's often said we are Divine beings having a human experience.
But what does that really mean?
Whenever we accept things as “truth” for a long time, it’s good to step back and take another look. Sometimes looking at “truths” can be uncomfortable, or bring up some resistance—we want to believe what we believe.
But what if we did that?
What if we left out that whole "Divine being" part, and looked at this idea a little plainer, little more stripped down. As in:
"We are souls having a human experience."
Not Divine beings.
It helps us flip this idea around and look at it anew, for two reasons:
• First, souls are not neutral—they have choice. In this way, we can be either souls turned to light. Or we can be souls turned toward dark. The soul has choice.
• Second, our human selves are not neutral either—our human self, which we might call our mind, ego or personality, also has choice. As humans, we can be "good,” which most people think of as kind, compassionate, and loving. Or we can be “bad,” which most people take as mean, cruel and hateful.
We get to choose the orientation of our soul: toward Light or dark.
And we get to choose the orientation of our human self: toward Light or dark.
Nobody is perfect. In fact, most of us are woefully in the middle, perfectly imperfect, walking our path. And yet many of us are leaning toward the Light.
The thing is: it’s complicated, this task of being both soul and human! It’s not as easy to lean toward Light as we might imagine, even if that is our soul’s and personality’s desire.
We are wonderfully imperfect.
We are on the path.
We are leaning to the Light.
That is enough for today.
