As human beings, we tend to think of ourselves solely in physical terms. We define ourselves by our bodies, our surroundings, and our experiences within them. However, what if we approached life from a different perspective? What if we saw ourselves as spiritual beings having a human experience?
This concept, often credited to philosopher and teacher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, suggests that our true essence lies beyond our physical bodies. We are not just flesh and blood, but rather beings of energy and spirit, connected to something greater than ourselves.
When we view ourselves in this way, it allows us to shift our focus to the spiritual aspects of life. We can connect with a higher power or consciousness and tap into a sense of purpose that goes beyond our individual selves. We can begin to see our experiences as lessons and opportunities for growth, rather than simply obstacles to overcome.
Additionally, viewing ourselves as spiritual beings can help us put our physical experiences into perspective. We can recognize that things like money, fame, and material possessions are fleeting and ultimately unimportant in the grand scheme of things. Instead, we can focus on cultivating inner peace, love, and compassion for ourselves and others.
Of course, this concept can be difficult to grasp and even more challenging to incorporate into our daily lives. We are conditioned from an early age to prioritize the physical world and often find ourselves caught up in the stresses and demands of everyday life.
However, with practice and intention, we can begin to shift our perspective and connect more deeply with our spiritual selves. This may involve practices such as meditation, prayer, or mindfulness, as well as contemplation and reflection on our place in the world.
Ultimately, viewing ourselves as spiritual beings having a human experience can bring a sense of meaning and purpose to our lives. It can help us navigate the challenges and uncertainties of life with greater resilience and grace. And, perhaps most importantly, it can help us connect with a sense of peace and wholeness that transcends our physical existence.
