Growth and Evolution as a Spiritual Being

What does growth and evolution as a spiritual being really mean? Once you are enlightened, does your life really change that much? Can it change that much? It all depends on you.

Many times we come to this Earth to evolve in a slow and methodical way. Then there are those times – like now – that acceleration happens and we are being forced to move from a young child, to adolescent, to young adult, to adult, to senior. How we move through life is how we move through the spiritual evolution. Some things we don’t have a choice and others things we do. We will grow no matter what – just like a baby. How we live our life is our choice – hence free will.

The question we each ask ourself is “what do I want to be when I grow up?” “What is my mission?” falls into that spiritual evolution as well. The baby boomers came to “change the world” and that we did. If you speak to the people of that generation, everyone spoke about it. It was a collective consciousness to soul evolution. How each of those people in that generation created that in their life was up to them. Look at Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Total visionaries. Yet rivalries with a symbiotic relationship. I view one in the light and the other – well not so much. Each had a huge role to play in the forward movement of this Earth and our evolution as a collective.

We are each like a cog in the wheel. The Earth needs each one of us because when the cogs work together, forward or backward movement happens. If one person was missing, there may not be growth and evolution. We don’t know the true value of who we are on this Earth because we can’t even encompass the magnitude of who we are. We are grander then we could ever think possible. Our bodies are mere shells holding a magnificent light. The saying a bull in a china shop is an analogy of how our spirit is within our body.

We have this massive light that is squeezed beyond recognition to fit into a itty bitty teeny weeny bikini that can’t even bulge out for relief. The only relief we have is to grow and evolve as a spiritual being. Only then can we start to realize the magnitude of what we are – and only then it is a microcosm within the macrocosm of life.
