RECOGNIZING SPIRITUAL AWAKENING

SPIRITUAL AWARENESS AND AWAKENING HAPPENS TO US IN A MULTITUDE OF WAYS; IT’S JUST AS LARGE A SCOPE AS THERE ARE PEOPLE, IN WHICH THE SPIRIT NEEDS TO REMIND IT’S ESSENCE WHO THEY TRULY ARE, AND WHAT THEY’VE COME TO DO. FOR SOME OF US OUR SOULS PURPOSE IS ALIGNED WITH OUR LIFE PATH; ( THIS DOES NOT MEAN THEIR EXEMPT FROM THE UPS AND DOWNS OF LIFE ) THIS IS WHERE YOU HAVE THE LEADERS THAT HAVE MARKED HISTORY: JESUS, BUDDHA, GANDHI, LINCOLN, MARTIN LUTHER KING E.T.C; THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THIS WORLD, BECAUSE OF THEM, MADE A DIFFERENCE AND AFTER THEIR DEATHS, LEFT IT BETTER. THEN THERE ARE THOSE OF US MAYBE RELIGIOUS, MAYBE NOT.  THAT’S THE BEAUTY IN SPIRITUALITY; TO ME IT’S IT’S SO MUCH BIGGER THAN RELIGION, LET ME EXPLAIN WHAT I MEAN. RELIGION HAS A TENDENCY TO SEPARATE. THERE’S TOO MANY RULES. I’M NOT GOING TO SINGLE ANY ONE RELIGION  OUT; AND I WAS RAISED IN THE CHURCH; AND I AM BAPTIZED, ( NOT BY THE DENOMINATION I GREW UP WITH )  AND TO BE CLEAR; I DO BELIEVE IN GOD…  AFTER MY OWN PERSONAL SPIRITUAL AWAKENING I BECAME AN ORDAINED SPIRITUAL MINISTER.   ( BACK TO MY POINT )  BECAUSE I REALIZED EVEN WITH A LOT OF RELIGIONS REVISING THEIR DOCTRINE TO TRY AND BECOME MORE INCLUSIVE TO ( TRYING TO THINK OF TACTFUL WORDS, BUT AWE HECK, DON’T PISS ON ME AND TELL ME IT’S RAINING! ) ISSUES THAT WERE STRICTLY PROHIBITED IN WRITTEN DOCTRINE THAT THROUGHOUT THE YEARS SEEM TO EITHER HAVE BEEN PROVEN NULL-IN-VOID BY NEW FOUND DOCTRINE, OR SAID TO BE ALLOWED BY THE PERSON IN CHARGE; ISSUES LIKE: INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE, BLACK PEOPLE ALLOWED IN CERTAIN RELIGIONS, THEN IN THAT RELIGION THEM BEING ABLE TO HOLD A PLACE OF IMPORTANCE ,SO-TO-SPEAK ( I AM CHOOSING MY WORDS CAREFULLY) THE GAY COMMUNITY BEING ABLE TO WORSHIP OPENLY… YOU GET WHERE I’M GOING. MY EXPERIENCE WITH RELIGION WAS THAT, EVEN WITH THE BEST INTENT; THERE WAS SO MUCH EGO INVOLVED, THAT IT TOOK AWAY FROM THE MESSAGE AND THAT TO ME IS DANGEROUS. RELIGION HAS ALL THE INGREDIENTS TO BREED WHAT WE SHOULD BE MOVING AWAY FROM INSTEAD OF TOWARDS. DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND , I AM NOT KNOCKING RELIGION, AT LEAST I’M NOT TRYING TOO; I’M SAYING THAT SPIRITUALITY ALLOWS YOU TO BELIEVE, PRACTICE, OR NOT; WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE, BECAUSE IT IS ALL INCLUSIVE, IT DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE ON ANY BASIS, SPIRITUALITY DOES’NT CARE THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN, WHAT GOD YOU PRAY TO, OR IF YOU DO NOT PRAY TO HIM, IF YOU’RE A WICCAN, A PAGAN, A DRUID, ALL THAT MATTERS IS YOUR HEART; THE STATE OF YOUR HEART, BECAUSE IT IS ALL ABOUT UNDERSTANDING, COMPASSION ONENESS,  MUTUAL RESPECT, MAYBE YOUR LIFESTYLE IS’NT ONE THAT I’D CHOOSE , OR THAT I EVEN LIKE… YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIKE IT, YOU ARE’NT LIVING IT, BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE ENOUGH COMPASSION IN YOUR HEART TO UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT THE FACT THAT THIS IS THEIR CHOICE… AND BE FINE WITH THAT. UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.  ( WHAT I’VE NOTICED IS PEOPLE WHO HAVE A GRIPE OR ISSUE WITH THINGS ONLY CHANGE THEIR PERSPECTIVE WHEN PERSONALLY AFFECTED) OKAY THEN BACK TO THE TOPIC OF THE POST. MOST SIGNS OF SPIRITUAL AWAKENINGS GO UN-NOTICED, WE TEND TO OVERLOOK THEM AS COINCIDENCES, GOOD LUCK SYMBOLS, OR EVEN NUISANCES ; THE THINGS I LOOK BACK ON NOW AND REALIZE IS THAT I HAD BEEN RECEIVING WHAT I CONSIDER THE NUISANCES AND GOOD LUCK SYMBOLS LONG BEFORE I HAD BEGAN TO PAY ATTENTION. FOR ME THEY WERE DRAGON FLIES; OH MY GOSH! THEY WERE EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME, NON-STOP, IN FRONT OF MY HOME, AS I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE STREET IF I STOPPED AT A STOP LIGHT, THERE WOULD BE TWO THAT WOULD JUST REST ON MY WINDSHIELD, THEY FOLLOWED ME EVERYWHERE. EVEN AFTER I MOVED HOMES THEY FOLLOWED ME TO THE NEW RESIDENCE, FUNNY, NOW AS I WRITE THIS I’M THINKING, HOW COULD I NOT HAVE KNOWN. HUMMING BIRDS; THERE WERE A PAIR OF HUMMING BIRDS THAT WOULD FLY ON MY PORCH SO CLOSE TO MY FACE, AND JUST FLUTTER THOSE WINGS SO FAST I THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO ATTACK, BUT I WOULD JUST FREEZE AND BE IN AWE THAT THEY WERE THAT CLOSE TO ME, WITHOUT FEAR, I FELT LIKE THEY WANTED TO TELL ME SOMETHING, OR KISS ME, EVERY MORNING FOR MAYBE TWO WEEKS OR SO. I DID NOT PAY ENOUGH ATTENTION; AND HERE’S THE THING, I BELIEVE WE ALL HAVE A SET TIME FOR OUR AWAKENING, WHEN THOSE NUDGES ARE NOT ENOUGH TO DO THE TRICK, THE UNIVERSE MOVES ON TO THE NEXT PRESET NECESSARY PROCESS, USUALLY NOT AS PLEASANT. (FRIENDLY REMINDER) ( YOU ARE BORN WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO TACKLE THIS LIFE ) THESE COME IN THE FORM OF: NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES, REALLY AWFUL CAR ACCIDENTS, DEVASTATING DIVORCES, LOSS OF A LOVED ONE, EMPTY NEST REALITY ( I DO NOT LIKE WHEN THEY CALL IT SYNDROME ) DEPRESSION, AND OR BI-POLAR DEPRESSION REALITY ( WHEN YOU ARE IN THIS REALITY YOU MAY THINK YOU CAN NOT TRUST WHAT YOU FEEL, YOU CAN ! )  THEN COMES A FEELING OF CHANGE. IF ANY OF THIS SOUNDS FAMILIAR CLICK LIKE AND FEEL FREE TO LEAVE A COMMENT. IF YOU’VE EXPERIENCED OTHER SIGNS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE . #LOVEANDLIGHTUNITE  Screenshot_20180711-143410_Google+.jpg
