Are you feeling in fit spiritual condition? This is the most important question you can ask yourself on a daily basis.
Everything is connected. How you start your day affects the rest of the day. How you go to sleep at night affects the start of the day. How you live the day affects how you go to sleep at night. It’s all connected.
So the common denominator of how we experience life (and how life experiences us) really is that spiritual connection to a higher power.
This spiritual connection is always reminding me I’m not alone, always reminding me of my intrinsic worthiness, and always embodying unconditional love.
Some days I choose to call this higher power God. Other days it’s the universal creative energy that connects us all. Some days it’s natural great beauty and the elements of the natural world.
And on days when everything feels a little less spiritually high vibe, my higher power is as simple as gravity.
Yes, GRAVITY. It’s a power greater than myself. It’s a power holding us all here, there’s no discrepancy there’s no preferential treatment, there’s no need to work harder to be held.
We are all held and we have a choice in front of us in every given moment to feel held or feel trapped.
We can choose to wrestle against the nature of gravity. I feel this sometimes when I don’t wanna get out of bed and the pillow goes on top of my head in a feeble attempt to try to block out the sunlight and the rooster and the snoring and the traffic (and the worrisome thoughts).
So as you contemplate the ever present presence of gravity holding you here now in this moment, take a moment and get honest with yourself. Did you wrestle with gravity this morning? Or did you wake up, smile upon awakening before your feet hit the floor, and realize you’re alive for some reason?
Did you say thank you? Do this now, say thanks to your higher power and ask yourself, gently, what are you gonna do with your one wild and precious life?
I’ve been to hell and don’t want to go back. That is the essence of my spiritual development. So I surrender.
Gravity always wins.
