These feelings are not only natural they are totally a human aspect of ourselves effected by living as humans on this earth. Yet, these feelings are important in that it serves as a catalyst to take us to the next step or level of spirituality. I am not saying that it is good or bad to be critical of ourselves or others. However, we must be sensitive and cognizant to understand the plight of others as well as ourselves at this stage of our growth.
I too still find some residual of the old paradigm within me. Therefore, I may come across and appear to others as being out of touch with reality. In fact it is reality that I devolve, in part, as the Spirit gives me utterance. The residuals are the traditions of men that we humans seem to hold onto and those outdated religious mindsets of which we think is righteous that prevents us from shifting beyond this third dimension of our physical existence while here on earth.
I have found out that this is OK. It is our human nature. Therefore, our spiritual self sometimes seem unattainable and a far-fetched notion. However, we must recognize that we were first spiritual beings; we are spiritual beings housed in flesh and bone. This is why the restorative process is so important and paramount to our survival while here on earth.
We go through so much in this life that we find ourselves weighted down focusing on the physical aspects of ourselves that we lose sight of what truly matters--our spiritual self or our higher self. We care more about what others are doing and what others may think about us. Most often people will separate themselves from us and even our family will think us delusional.
The question is, if we are all connected and all come from the same source; and, the salvation of our family, loved ones and the human race depends upon the light that exudes from our very being; what is more important? Let us all just catch the vision and make the Shift.
Apostle Rubie James
