A Spiritual Journey of Unlearning

The journey of awakening and living more fully from our spiritual nature, can be an exciting and empowering experience. When I realized the truth of my divine nature, it was one of the best moments of my life. What a revelation!  That I was born in original blessing, and at my core am pure, unconditional love, was like a breath of fresh air blowing through a stale and stagnant consciousness that thought —at the time—-that this body, this intellect, this career, this bank account, this relationship was who I was! It changed the trajectory of my life to one of more peace and freedom than I could ever have imagined.

And yet the journey can also feel uncomfortable and challenging and sometimes just plain difficult. Why would something so wonderful as realizing and releasing our imprisoned splendour feel anything but incredible?

Because we hold on to our understanding of the who we think we are. Our false self, often called the ego, the personality or the imposter self, is the self we show to the world, and is the self that carries a big load of unconscious beliefs that run the show called our life.

Our divine nature is like a freely flowing river and during our human life we have picked up rocks (beliefs) that get into the river and interfere with the free flow of the river.  Our job is to identify those rocks, those hidden beliefs and release them so that the river flows more freely again.

The spiritual journey, regardless of the path chosen, is the unlearning of what we erroneously considered the truth about ourselves. When we choose to live more fully, as an expression of the unconditional love that we now know ourselves to be, the Universe supports us. We become conscious of anything that is lurking hidden in our own consciousness, that isn’t supporting us in being who we really are and must release it. This process can feel challenging and uncomfortable, but it is temporary. Letting go of those rocks, in the river of our Divine Nature, frees Its flow in and through us and brings peace, freedom and joy!
