Who is going to do your "spiritual", soul-growth work for you if you don't? We are not just pinballs in a pinball machine. Of course there is growth that will occur naturally from random experience. However, if one ruminates on the process, occurrences, and contributing factors, and the subsequent learning to be digesting, one will find themselves in the most phenomenal school environment. Between the physical and spiritual, not two but one, blended breath-based reality, one can find an everlasting adventure space within oneself.
Each person is a self contained cosmos. Each representing a diverse aspect of the perfect love from which all come. An eternal avenue for creation, life to discover new aspects, new truths, new perspectives - all contained within each person.
These are only discovered through effort to uncover and digest. Living life as a a habit, a repetitive, simply physical exercise will not reveal what and who we are. Thinking was created to do this, not to try to "figure things out" - there is no figure things out as everything is happening in.
Languaging. Processing. Contemplating. Digesting. These are a few of the tools at our disposal. Repeating the same phrases, thoughts, actions will only disguise life. Life is emergent, active, expansive. Invest some time in the wonder that you are.
Right as I finished this, our kids video came to "Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are?"
Reminded me of the wisdom of the other song that we all know. "Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream."
