Spiritual Growth: Experiencing Our Own Divinity

As I’ve pondered being both human and divine, the question kept coming to me: how do we know we are both divine and human?  How do we experience it?

Do you remember the last time you said something to yourself like, “I don’t know what I am going to do with myself?”  Maybe you were frustrated about losing weight or getting further with the marketing plan for your business or once again snapping at your daughter.

Think about it for a moment until you remember asking yourself a question like that.  This inquiry doesn’t involve the specifics – the ideal weight, marketing plan or response to your daughter.  Instead, look closely at the question itself.  “What am I going to do with myself?”  

Who is asking the question?  Who are you in the question?  Are you one or two?

As you can begin to actually experience yourself as both – the one asking the question and the one involved with your weight, marketing plan or daughter – you have a true glimpse into your own divinity.

Set aside a few minutes each day to experience yourself as the questioner.  Who is this one?  Simply allow yourself to know this vastness of you, the part of you that is never touched by “problems” of weight, marketing plans or impatient responses.

The spiritual growth of allowing yourself to experience the vastness of you.
My perception of life opened wide the first time I noticed that as I simply allowed myself to lay on the ground and gaze into the sky that I was the vastness of the sky and the sky was me.

Be with this question of who is observing “you” until you begin to experience being the one who is observing.  You will absolutely know when it happens . . .
