I’ve discovered that most of us lose ourselves, when we ground our spiritual beliefs, foundation and understanding, in something physical. Whether it be religion, money, education, wealth, other people, or whatever other tangible accessories to life.
When a person grounds their house in sand, it will always offer the incentive of relatively easier digging, and an ocean view. As with any physical thing, on the flip side, it will also be devastatingly more susceptible to being washed away by that same ocean view, especially during the harshest winds and waters.
In short, the physical is a concept. A living and breathing, social, mental, spiritual, and emotional concept. In such, your reality shifts with your concept of your reality. Not the other way around. If your spiritual support is grounded in sand, it’s grounded in sand.
If you want a life, similar to a house, that is grounded in something stable and sturdy enough to withstand a storm or heavy winds, you don’t build it on sand.
The physical condition of sand changes with the ever-shifting wind and water, as your concept grounded in the physical, changes with your ever-shifting thoughts, feelings and perceptions.
If you want a life, similar to a house, that is grounded in something stable and sturdy enough to withstand a storm or heavy winds, you don’t build it on sand. You build it on solid ground. The same is true for your spirit.
If you want a spirit, a mind, a heart, an existence that is grounded on a the most solid of foundations, you must build it on solid ground. Not on a perception, opinion or passing thought or feeling. Your understanding and foundation of your YOU, must be grounded in the most solid and intangible of materials. That can only come from within.
That even if you’re the only house left standing, you’ll be the house LEFT standing.
This is bigger than even God, or at least, your current understanding of God. It takes the He and She away from God. The physical understanding of It, and allows you to ground your YOU, in the most elastic, resilient, shatterproof, unbreakable of shells.
It’s lovely! And it takes hella work! Buuuut, you get to realizing, halfway through the hardest part, that you know for a solid fact that your house won’t blow away this time! That even if you’re the only house left standing, you’ll be the house LEFT standing.
