Spiritual Integration

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

When we can come to that place where we’re on our knees in gratitude for everything, when we can release our ego’s claim to knowing, where we can humble ourselves to ever think we can define or fully describe God, where we can touch the felt presence of that which is beyond, we touch peace.  Spiritual integration has deep respect for all as gift.  There is a sense of wonder with each opportunity of breath.  There is a discipline to pause in finding the gift of the given.  At this point negativity evaporates, energy increases, and a sense of equanimity fills the body/mind.  At this point one truly experiences the mystery in all, the ignorance from our separated thoughts diminishes and we come to wholeness, healed past our notions of being alone.  As Rumi has written, at this point we step into a field beyond notion of right knowing and wrong knowing, ready to explore the mystery together.  At this point we surrender the potential violence that comes from our beliefs and opinions.  At this point, through spiritual integration, we find our humanity.
