Many religions teach that being human is not Spiritual. Old school Christian churches preach original sin, the flesh must die for the soul to live, and my personal favorite, eternal hell fire damnation if you’re not ‘good.’ I do believe in Hell, the problem I have with these old school principles is each Priest, Minister, Preacher, and even some Gurus and Yogis have their own unique definition of ‘good.’ In previous blogs I’ve stated that many Spiritual principles are based in the concept that we are created by a God(dess) with very human attributes, personality traits and physical appearance. And that we are created in their image. So how is being fully human not Spiritual? I personally belief it is the only way to be Spiritual. To feel our feelings, to exercise our bodies and listen to our bodies aches, twinges, and even desires. Yes, I said desires. No Divine, Loving Creator would give us physical longings and desires if it wasn’t okay and even Spiritual to use them. Let me interject here that I am a staunch supporter of Sacred Fidelity, so don’t take that last point out of context. To be fully Spiritual we can and should dress in ways that are comfortable for us. Women, we should do what feels natural to us with regard to make-up, nails, hair, shoes. Men, you should watch football, action movies, and own a sports car at least once in your life. I’ve owned a couple myself and I have a third planned for the near future. We should also do what we love regarding careers. There are reasons we have preferences and unique interests. If each of us had a career that fed our soul and gave our heart peace, there would be the exact number of teachers, accountants, mechanics, hairdressers, shoe salesmen, and even Ministers and Gurus to balance the world’s needs. The same goes for entertainment. Personally, I love the Bubble Gum Pop music from the 1960s, I still love Elvis, The Beatles, and many others. My favorite way to relax is an afternoon with a roaring fire and watching the old monster movies, Dracula, Wolfman, The Mummy, Creature from the Black Lagoon, or reading a classic Stephen King or Dean Koontz novel. It is Spiritual to be uniquely, fully human.
