Being a Spiritual Person, Taking It Personally

Governor George Wallace, how spiritual was he at this time in America's Civil Rights Movement?

What does it mean to me, Rose Rosetree, calling someone “A spiritual person”?

After days of conversation here at the blog — and more comments on this topic to come, I hope — it strikes me as important to add my personal opinion. Just to set an example.

Having your own opinion is what matters most, of course, Blog-Buddies.

Why is it important, deciding for yourself what it means, being a spiritual person? So you can live up to your ideals.

Also, this can free you when behavior from others has been hurtful to you. Or confusing. Or (worst of all) the iffy behavior has gone unquestioned. Because that person did something horrible but other people chime in, “No matter. Her heart is in the right place. She is such a spiritual person.”

You see, old definitions and beliefs live within us subconsciously, causing expectations. Then we can get weirded out consciously by reality, entangled in our smelly old illusions like wine in the cellar that has turned to vinegar.

At least if you consciously examine what you believe now, that can protect you. You can recognize when somebody widely considered “A spiritual person” may clash horribly with your own deep standards. Clear and current standards, congruent with your present level of consciousness, can spare you a great deal of anguish.

Collective Consciousness, What's That?

Collective consciousness, where each of us counts as a piece of an evolving puzzle.

Collective consciousness — do you know what that means? Since it impacts your life every single day, learning about collective consciousness can help you with personal growth.

Collective consciousness has been mentioned often at this blog. Never before have I dedicated a blog post to defining it. Nor to exploring why collective consciousness is such an important part of my mission, here at “Deeper Perception Made Practical” … and with my healing work in general.

Hmm, collective consciousness is such an important theme, I feel like rolling up my sleeves when getting to work. Except it’s the last day in June, a gorgeous day here in Sterling, Virginia. My shirt has short sleeves, actually.

However, I am choosing to write this blog post rather than putter around in my garden on this gorgeous summer day. So collective consciousness must be important to me. If I succeed at today’s post, collective consciusness will remain — or become — really important to you, too.
