We all long for a place we like to call home, a place where we feel secure, and nothing can harm us. Home is where the heart is, as well as the spirit. But where is home? And how do we get there? I am not talking about the place where you grew up, more of a spiritual home, a place where you feel at rest, in total harmony with everything around you. I guess it is hard to describe in words, as it is more of a feeling. A place where we feel at peace with everything. I wish I could describe the feelings I have about this place, this destination, that we all long to go to someday. Could it be a heaven of sorts? Maybe. I know such a place exists, I just have to experience it firsthand. And the process is going on now. One with the world and all of that good stuff.
Here is the thing. Once you realize you are a spiritual being having a physical experience, it should put some of your fears to rest. I guess it is hard for some people to conceptualize this, as they constantly look for proof. I say the proof is within, an all-knowing self inside every one of us. This is a tool I am using to try and rid myself of fear. If I look at my physical body as simply a vehicle my spirit is using temporarily to experience the world as it is today, I can somewhat let go of the whole mortality thing, and just allow myself to experience life as it comes, do what it is I want, and pass onto something else when my vehicle “runs out of gas.” If you view life in this way, or in a way like it is some sort of dream, which is also a possibility, you somehow are no longer afraid. Nothing can really harm your spirit, the only part of you that it eternal, so everything you do and experience is less fearsome.
However, I would not recommend behaving too recklessly at this point. Do not do things that will have negative consequences in physical reality because that will only inhibit your spiritual progress. I believe we are all here for a reason. Maybe we do not know what the reason is, but we do know inherently right from wrong. We can make decisions that will lead us towards progress or we can go on a destructive path. Every thought, every action, is a choice. And once we realize that, it makes choosing to live an ideal life easier. It still is not simple, but it gets easier every day.
Knowing that no matter how bad your physical body becomes in terms of condition, that your spirit remains immortal is a key to everlasting prosperity. Look at people like Hellen Keller and Steven Hawkins. These are people who have been dealt some tough lives and yet still have made a difference in the world. There is something inside them that allowed these people to make a difference in the world. Some internal force that we still have not come to understand completely, except on a completely intrinsic level. I believe “going home” symbolizes the complete realization that we are more than just our physical bodies, that life, or existence, does go on after our physical bodies pass away. Otherwise, what is the meaning of life but to peddle products and keep the world turning?
There is a part of you that is spiritual in nature and one of the best things you can do is get to know that person. Some people call it their higher self, others intuition, but whatever you call it, it is something special to get it touch with this part of you. If you don’t believe in this sort of stuff, then that is exactly what you will percieve. But if you open yourself up just a little bit to this idea, you will start to “get it.” These words may be here in the physical world, but they were spawned from the spiritual realm, a collection of subconscious thought and spiritual wisdom that only my higher self and I could have possibly put together. I encourage you to do the same, as it has worked wonders for me. I am still not 100% on the whole reality theory, but every day I seem to get closer in closer to thinking that reality is almost 100% subjective. We shall see. Good day.
