Who says life on Earth can’t be fun? Who says we have to tolerate life while we strive to find something better, instead of recognizing that what we seek is right in front of us? I’ve been a part of the conscious community for a couple years, and every now and then, I notice that some people would rather not be here.
Some would rather be in a higher state of consciousness or reunited with their spiritual family, and for them, living on Earth is a chore or a bother that they have to suffer through before they can return ‘home’ and find what they feel is missing.
What if this world is in fact our ‘home’, because ‘home’ is all of creation? What if, instead of our true home being in a distant higher consciousness we have to search for, our true home is right here, in this moment of now, waiting for us to realize it?
What if a full, loving heart can show us that the higher reality we want is here on this planet inside each of us, and once we realize this, we can start the next stage of our spiritual evolution? Maybe, just maybe, spiritual evolution will lead us to understand that every aspect of our existence – this reality and every one beyond it – is our home.
Maybe we don’t need to try so hard to find a higher consciousness, and if we relax, calm down and approach our spiritual work with the understanding that we already have what we want, our higher consciousness would suddenly appear everywhere.
Maybe if we change our outlook from one of not wanting to be here to one of understanding that our higher consciousness is an intrinsic part of our planet, we’d realize that we don’t just have to tolerate life on Earth.
We can approach life with the understanding that everything we experience, in every moment, is teaching us and preparing us for the greater reality that lies ahead. In understanding that our life is one with the higher reality we seek, we can diminish the pressure we put on ourselves and learn to let everything flow.
If we can do this, we’ll learn a lot more than if we turn our back on life in favor of our spirituality, because life itself is a spiritual experience. Everything we do is spiritual, whether we realize it or not, but there’s nothing wrong with seeking a higher level of wisdom and experience.
In fact, it’s the basis for everything we’re doing here, and our purpose is to discover that we’re one with our creator, elevate our consciousness and discover what the next planes of existence have to offer.
All I’m suggesting is that we change our outlook on our current life before we start chasing the higher reality that lives within. I think we should be centered in love and appreciation for this world (so we can learn from it) before we can discover anything greater.
We have to realize that our life is a blessing as it is right now, despite all the difficult and stressful things we have to deal with, and we have what it takes to soar through this life – even if we don’t feel like it when the frustrations pile up.
We don’t just have to settle for life, and we can make it a fun adventure if we just try. But how can we do this when we have so many stresses and responsibilities to deal with every day? The simplest answer I can give is that we have to be able to shift into love, in any moment, and remain there.
When we’re rooted in love, we aren’t bothered by tedious chores or stressful circumstances. We don’t worry that we’re missing out on something better, because we already feel great and the simplicity of this moment is all we need.
Cleaning dishes or cutting grass can become as fun as playing music or meditating, and all it takes is shifting to love and changing our outlook.
Everything comes down to our perspective and how we choose to handle the world, and a very simple shift into the humility of the heart space will help us to see that life doesn’t have to amaze us to be fun.
We can find amusement or enjoyment in the simplest tasks if we do them with love, and our entire outlook changes when we’re permanently rooted in the heart. The wellbeing of the people around us and people all over the world becomes our main focus, and we think less about ourselves and more about society and what we can do to make things better.
Our spiritual practices begin to flow more freely, producing more amazing results in the process, because we’ve opened a channel in our heart that we require in order to truly explore ourselves.
It’s understandable that so many spiritual seekers would rather leave this world behind for the heavenly planes beyond, but shifting our perspective will allow us to see that we’re here for a reason and this place really doesn’t have to be so bad.
It can be hell or it can be a paradise, and it all comes down to our perspective in every moment. When we understand this, we can open up to our higher consciousness without any self-imposed blockages and learn to have fun here while we evolve.
Life will teach us more than we ever thought possible when we’re completely and totally open to it, so let’s open up and surrender any ego-driven aspects of ourselves that want to keep us in our comfort zone. It’s our time to shine, and we can’t shine if we’re too busy wishing we were somewhere else.
I’m a twenty-one year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
