I am forever in awe and admiration of the peculiarity of humans. 🙏
It’s perhaps the most exciting thing about sharing in a collective human experience – individuality.
If every human being is a unique physical expression of universal consciousness;
A consciousness exploring a myriad of ways to experience its unlimited potential within a realm of perceived limitation;
Then for every person on this planet, there is a unique pathway of actualisation and enlightenment.
Every moment a new Soul emerges into physicality a new pathway of physical, spiritual ascension is also born into possibility.
Now if we view religion simply as a procedure, a map, or a model with which people may actualise their spiritual potential;
Then for every human, there is a UNIQUE map – our OWN personal pathway, system, or inner religion of sorts.
Our experience of spiritual evolution is our own process of discovering that pathway for ourselves.
That’s what makes our individual evolution so precious.
This is why I have become wary of comments like…
“You evolution simply isn’t possible unless…” > insert personal belief, philosophy, method etc <
One person simply cannot truly tell another what is and isn’t possible on their own unique pathway.
They can only offer experience, advice, tools, and potential contexts.
To me, CONTEXT is the key. 🔑
It provides a frame, a conscious container for someone to discover and create their own CONTENT – paint their own picture.
Spirituality is not a one size fits all and if you consider that spiritual evolution is in part an awakening to our quantum nature, then surely infinite possibilities rule – okay?
There are billions (and potentially an infinite number) of “THE ways” – literally.
We can share “A way”.
Or our experience with “OUR way”.
And trust that it may help another find “THEIR way”.
But it’s all a hypothesis until tested, and even then will express a different result in each person.
And that’s what makes the individual journey so exciting!
Maps are handy but they’re not the territory.
Even with the best models to work with, our pathway is a mystery.
Perhaps this is where and how so many organised religions have missed the point and created negative anchors to the term “religion”?
I believe rather than holding answers for each other we need more so to hold space for each other to find the answers within.
A space of unconditionality, acceptance, curiosity, understanding, and non-projection.
We are all Masters in the process of actualisation.
And in this way, all have something to learn from each other on our path of evolution.
Within each of us is the potential for our own influential art forms.
Our own unique language, martial art, healing art, sexual art, medicine, message – whatever! All there and more just laying in waiting.
I’m a big fan of The Stone Roses and Ian Brown.
I find it interesting in his song F.E.A.R. where he says, “For Every man A Religion”, and then spells it out as F-E-A-R.
It’s thought-provoking. 🤔
Perhaps on some level, we all fear the level of power and responsibility that comes with having a unique pathway?
Perhaps on some level, we all fear another having a pathway different to our own?
Perhaps on some level, we know we will eventually have to let go of the maps in order to truly actualise – and that’s a little scary?
Spirituality is very personal and peculiar AND there is beyond a doubt a unique power within each of us.
We each navigate our own reality.
We ARE the territory, the map, the map maker, and the explorer all at once.
AND it’s totally possible for us all to find OUR own unique, personal way…
Be ALL that you are.
