Higher Self watches as I struggle with the drama of ego; reacting to situations with selfishness, desiring control, judging, pulling away emotionally when things don’t go well, giving up easily, avoiding failure.
This lighter Spiritual Self smiles and gently nudges me back into the flow, reminding me to be in the moment without attaching to or rejecting it. With this higher part of me fully conscious, I gently embrace the emotions and fears I feel without being limited or dragged down by them, without giving into their endless drama.
This Higher Self knows that I am valid, that every cell in my body is just another form of something which was always here and will always be here, which can never die and is always born. This Self knows I am part of a magnificent whole, a Grand Spirit, the One.
I know that I am a human struggling to find this wholeness, but must struggle with it because I am human. I may know that I am part of something greater, but I do not feel it. I feel separate and small. So the Higher Self just smiles and says tenderly, “I am with you. Know that you are always free in spirit, no matter what happens in life.”
One must subscribe to the temporary nature of our existence, our consciousness here, with all its trappings, its beautiful and grotesque richness; and dare, strive, allow yourself to live with the most quality possible.
