It Is Good To Be Human – Part 1
“As long as you cannot admit that you are human….you can not be helped in your problems, nor can you form real relationships” from PWG Lecture #106
I am heading to the beach at sunrise. I am hoping for a deepening into my spiritual path. I am going for an all out God experience.
I tiptoe out of our house with my iPhone for picture taking and begin to walk on the beach. It is dawn and only a slight color spreads among the clouds on the horizon. I imagine I have missed the sunrise. I watch what is there and feel the under current of my disappointment.
As I watch the surf come in and make beautiful patterns on the shoreline I feel a deepening expansion. These words fill my head – “I am on the rim of God”.
At my elementary school fair I used to play one of those toss the ball games. My ball would always skirt the rim of the circle, never falling into the center. I never won the prize.
I hate the rim and want more. And I also marvel at the capacity to be this close to God, to have the capacity to expand in human form this wide and deep. A moment later I am thinking about our laundry detergent. Our towels and clothes smell bad. I am astonished that I can move so easily between the great and the small.
