In this day and age, there are many travelling on a spiritual journey. Many trying to seek answers to the things of this world; through a force or source that is not of this world. Essentially I think this all comes down to one common understanding amongst Mankind, that human logic has its limitations. And that there is a Higher Force/Source out there that can provide insight to things within our lives. Yes, the proof that there is Existence in God.
But what is the difference between “spiritual” and being “spirit filled”? I often debated this very principle in my mind. And to be honest, I’m still not quite clear on this. However, there is one thing that I have come to understand for certain is that there is a different in approach and way of thinking. While spiritual thinking emcompasses numerous schools of thought; spirit filled thinking is guided by one certain belief. For me, the conclusion that I have come to is that if one is certain in what they believe in, once can emcompass both. However, for the betterment of Mankind, we have to be mindful of whether we are guided by Divine Thinking, or by that which is not so divine. This is the struggle that Mankind has encountered since Adam & Eve fell to sin, in the Paradise of Eden. A struggle that God is very much aware of. This is the very reason why God’s Graces and Love is so abundant and endless in supply, that He gives us the FREEWILL to choose to seek His Divine Logic. He gives us till the last breath in our earthly bodies to seek and find this, so that not only will be “Spiritual”, but also “Spirit filled“. I think out of the 2, it is most hardest for man to become, “spirit filled”. Being divinely spirit filled, truly does require you to break away from the ways of this world; and to even not give in to human nature (which is vulnerable to sin). God says He is not of the ways of this world; but beyond them. And Jesus has said that “Truth is not seen or heard; but felt…”; which requires us to rely on logic and guidance that is in ways of Love, Peace, and Nonviolence, which all require a strength that is beyond our human nature. If it was within our human nature, the world would not exist in the current condition that it is.
Does anyone every achieve, the balance between the 2? Very few. It is a lifelong journey, to which only the Higher Source, God, can determine if that balance was achieved. However, while we are on our spiritual journeys, we will begin to see a difference in our way of thinking. And such a journey will become the focus of our entire existence. Once this thinking has become engrained in us, and has taken root, it will ben reflected in our everyday actions. What we have to realize is that because this is a lifelong journey, to which God, Himself, determines the beginning and end of it, we will have a constant struggle between falling on and off the path. The most important thing is to get back on. God knows this struggle so much of us, which is why He sent Jesus Christ, His Son, to reestablish the direct pathway that we once had with the Father of Creation, that was originally destroyed by the introduction of sin by Satan, in the Garden of Eden, and with Adam & Eve’s fall to this sin. He wanted us to tap back into His Endless Unconditional Love, to be guided by His Multidimensional Logic, which defies all boundaries that have defined this world. That is why those who have a balance between the two, see what it means when God says His Ways are not of this world, but beyond them. That the ways that truly considered great in the Eyes of God, are quite the contrary to what the world defines as great.
The prime example of this is to see how a little infant or child lives their life. The things that we would consider as the simplest of things in this world, is what brings great joy to a child. They have no fear to love; and at the same time, very sensitive to the pain the world can cause them. Yet at the same time, they quickly move on, to continue on loving. Haven’t you ever seen a child being more amused by the box or wrapping paper that their toy gift, came in? They are often ok playing by themselves; or even playing with others. They are often content “beating to their own drum/tune”; so to speak. God speaks to these pure hearts quite often. Because it has not been jaded by the ways of this world. This is what God means to have “faith like a child”. To reach our fullest potential, spiritually, we must not allow for the ways of this world, to jade our hearts and souls. Otherwise this could block out God, and His Divine Enlightenment in our lives.
Remember, Divine Logic are ways that understand that the creation can never be equivalent to the Creator; and not having the authority to determine which of the Creator’s creations to eliminate or not. A way of NONVIOLENCE. It is a way to which is confident in the spiritual enlightenment one has found, and will have unshaken LOVE and PEACE in such a heart and soul, despite the chaos in the world around them. This lifelong journey is one that God asks for us to be in constant communication with Him. To experience a type of Unconditional Love that fill every void that a human soul could experience by the ways of this world. Such a soul reflects this spiritual balance….and is undeniable by all that come in contact with it.
