“Our spirits are that which is eternal in us, that which abides beyond life. Your spirit is energy itself, the energy that causes us to be here; it is you, and it is what shall remain of you when your days in the shadow-dance of life are over. It’s easy to become disengaged with our spirits because life is compelling and the material universe endlessly chanting and demanding. We can literally spend all our time engaged with our stuff, our dreams, our Life Themes, and our current taxing stories without ever stumbling into the realm of spirit.
One of the functions of crisis is to take us exactly there, to that greater awareness. It joggles us into knowing that we are more than people living so-called human lives. Difficulties get us to experience, rather than just mouth, the truth – that we are spiritual beings who are having this experience. A spiritual life is that place in our consciousness where we acknowledge the mystery, holiness, oneness, and union-through-spirit of us all.”
Daphne Rose Kingma, in “The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart”
