Spirit, Body, Chicken, Egg
Tom and I often have long, philosophical talks. At some point as we are each planted on our respective sofas in the living room, I always think to myself, “This is awesome.”
The ‘awesomeness’ is that I’ve known Tom for nearly forty years and I’m still fascinated and inspired by his view on life. We sometimes see things from very different perspectives, which makes it that much more fun.
The other day we were having one of our DnM’s (deep and meaningful talks) and Tom said, “The whole point is to meditate and to connect with your soul.” To which I said, “For you it is! But for a poet or a musician or an artist, the whole point is to bring Spirit through, into the world, into form.” He replied, “You’re right…” (I always like that) “…it goes both ways, you can meditate to connect with Spirit or you can express yourself in some way to bring Divinity through.”
Like the chicken or the egg, it truly doesn’t matter which comes first! Both are equally important.
As Spiritual Beings in service through massage, reiki, lomi lomi, shamanic or other healing work, the whole point is to honor both your physical expression on earth and your Soul, Spirit, God. Whether you are someone who likes to meditate or someone who finds the Divine by dancing in the rain, what matters is ALLOWING the flow, the connection, the authenticity and the wisdom of your soul to be present and expressed every moment of every day of your life.
So whether you take long walks in a vineyard, do yoga on a rooftop, wake up at 3am to meditate, sing Kirtan at your spiritual church or wash dishes with the grace of a Saint, your life is your spiritual practice. Every moment of every day is an opportunity to commune with your soul, express your higher wisdom and live your life’s purpose. No one can define that for you, only you can discover it, one authentic moment at a time.
So, as we wrap up 2013 and contemplate the coming year, my hope for you is that you allow your soul to shine through every thought, every word, every endeavor, today and forever more.
With love and blessings for the new year.
Donna (and of course Tom & Jonah)
