Remember to be Human

I have been taking a break from social media and the internet in general. It’s been such a breath of fresh air, and I had time to pick up hobbies like learning guitar, painting, and enjoying nature more. I encourage everyone to do this. I spent more time with my family too. Taking that break really helped me to feel more energized and refresh, and now I hardly go online.

I wanted to discuss a topic that seems to be popping up in my life a lot: being human. A lot of those that do spiritual work or are trying to reach some level of enlightenment often forget that they are human. This isn’t a bad thing by any means. I just noticed that people beat themselves up when they feel sadness, anger, frustration, stress, etc. They constantly say, “I know that everything happens for a reason and there is no good or bad, but I feel this anger. I get mad about this. I get sad about that.” They are hard on themselves about feeling certain emotions. Some people view feeling anything other than happiness and acceptance as unenlightened.

Well, I’m here to say that’s bullshit. It’s okay to want, it’s okay to have anger, it’s okay to be human! You are here for a reason. You incarnated as a human being for a reason, so allow yourself to be human. Feel those emotions and honor them. It’s okay 🙂 even the dense emotions are good! Feeling judgemental isn’t bad nor is feeling pity. Feeling sadness is just as important and just as beautiful as happiness. Though you may not view it that way, but allowing yourself to feel every emotion as they come through is your way of honoring that moment and the human experience.

Yes, I know a lot of spiritualists want to be gurus, but you are first and foremost human. Trying to be “above” that doesn’t make you better than anyone else nor does it make you less. It just is what it is. So stop fighting yourself and just embrace all that this human life has to give you. Don’t run away from it. Don’t try to deny it because you just may make your life more difficult than it has to be if you do.

We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. We are all teachers of some kind, and we are all students. So remember to be human and learn what you came here to learn and teach what you came here to teach as a human being 🙂

I hope you all have a beautiful day! <3
