Hear us well: being spiritual does not mean that you do not feel pain. You are living in a world of duality, where pain, due to the Law of Balance, is equally present with pleasure. Does this mean you stay in a state of pain once you acknowledge it and allow yourself to feel it and learn from it? Only if you choose to do so. The awakened soul realizes you always have a choice. Feel the pain. Feel it fully for optimum health, but then allow the pendulum to swing back to center, where you can feel once again your soul’s enduring qualities. You are both human and spirit. Denying, rejecting, or suppressing your human nature will put you out of balance just as much as wallowing in one emotion for longer than you need to learn from it. Do you see how it works? Love yourself in all of your states of awareness, for all is an expression of Source.
