Jesus said, “Be in the world but not of the world.”
When I think of how it is for me, I see that I am definitely not OF the world, and I am trying to figure out how to be IN the world!
What about you? Are you of the world? Or, like me, are you not of the world, and trying to figure out how to be in it? Or, are you balanced in the way that Jesus recommended, in the world but not of it?
I am a spiritual helper… I am not a perfect spiritual being. I am walking my path and dealing with what arises as best I can. I know a lot of tools for happy-ing up, that I use regularly and they work for me, so I am inspired to share them with others… But, I am not perfectly peaceful at all times. I get triggered, I get irritated, I get sad.
And, I experience some very high vibrational states in which I feel incredible love and an uncommon amount of compassion for all beings… But, I do not live in those amazingly blissful states all the time. I find myself judging and worrying. I get offended and hurt. I expect too much of others and then feel disappointed.
And, lately I am feeling very, very happy about this new nun chapter of my life, and I am feeling super inspired to help others as much as I can (given the limitations of my body)… So perhaps I am figuring out how to “be in the world” more than I realize!
Maybe when I launch my new book, Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life, I will truly be in the world…
So, dear readers, what is your status on this topic?
