Spirits in a Material World

3 May

Empty Shells

Remember the Police song,  “Spirits in a Material World”?   Well, I just happened to overhear it playing in the background the other day and it brought to mind how temporary our time here on earth really is.   As such, we can choose our time wisely, and learn some of the many wonderful, sometimes painful, bittersweet, yet necessary lessons  life has to offer.  Or, we can continue to simply be empty shells and move though life learning nothing at all.   It is our choice.

We are not human beings going through a temporary spiritual experience rather, we are spiritual beings going through a temporary human experience.

Through the FIRE

I would not trade a single one of the lessons I’ve learned.  Understanding the value of life alone; how precious and fragile it is, has taught me more than anything I could have ever imagined.   This has indeed been a tough year for me but, I have gained so much through the pain, the tears and yes, even the laughter. I am tremendously blessed to have been through the fire ~ because I have come out on the other side, stronger, wiser and happier than ever!

“We Are Spirits In a Material World”

Think about it…If we are lucky enough to be on this earth for any length of time at all,  there are so many opportunities to learn and grow spiritually before we can move on to the next realm.   So, we really are spirits moving about in a material world trying to fulfill our predetermined destiny before our time here has expired.   Heavy, I know.   But definitely food for thought.

Previously it was a horrifying scenario in my view, however , witnessing the very skilled approach you managed that forced me to leap with delight. I’m happy for the work and believe you find out what an amazing job your are putting in educating most people through the use of a blog. Probably you’ve never met any of us.
