“What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are.” (1 John 3: 1, The Message)
I often write about this subject, in varying words, but I think it is important to continually return to, for the truth of who we really are can get so lost and confused in the midst of all that goes on around us. The events of our world, and the words of others can so easily tear us down. Events and words can only effect us if we allow them to. If we agree to participate in what the world and other people are doing we can soon build a hardened crust around ourselves and forget that through the unconditionally loving thought of Perfect Spirit we are so wonderfully made.
We are each spiritual beings having a human experience. So often in our thinking we have that reversed. We think we are first and foremost human, physical bodies trying desperately as we journey on this earth to connect with some form of spiritual truth. Our physical being however is just the human presence that we wear so that we can experience life with one another while we are here on this planet. When we realize that we are first spiritual beings our connection to Spirit/God becomes not only more easily understood, but lived.
God loves us so much, cares for us so much, wants relationship with us so much and God wants us to understand who we are. As children of God this beautiful spirit of truth and grace and unconditional love is the very core and essence of who we are. That is first, all else is built from that place.
So from being spiritual beings God has given us our humanness, our thinking minds and our ability for discernment. God has given us wonderful human experiences that can make our time on this earth the fulfillment of God’s kingdom here on earth. I think our humanity is terrific and wonderful. It is rich with possibility and can give us so much joy and happiness. Our humanity opens us to amazing revelations of Spirit that can act through us to make this journey we call earthly life so much more meaningful.
But, as humans we often experience physical things that can be overwhelming. Our bodies hurt, our hearts break, we go through dark places that seem endless and with seemingly no a passageway out.
Psalm 23 says, “Though I walk through the darkest valley.” Whatever that valley might be, whatever that burden we carry, we are guided back out into the light and restored to our rightful place in God’s house. The Master Teacher Jesus, through his life, his teaching and his resurrection has demonstrated for us that the Christ Presence, Christ Consciousness is one of pure love, inclusion, acceptance and affirmation. It is a non-judging, non-duel thinking consciousness that sees possibility in the face of limitation and hope in the face of despair. There is meant to be joy in sharing our unique individualities and a willingness to experience and learn from our shared experiences.
Our humanity is rich and prosperous with unlimited possibility when we know we are first and foremost spiritual beings living a humanity that is filled with the energy and vibration of perfect creation.
