What I've Learned, In Part

This is Orea speaking.  I'm a member of a group on Facebook called, "Eclectic Spirituality."  We were asked to share the most important things we have learned in our spiritual journey.  I had to think about this for a while.  I've been on this path for a long, long time. 

One of the first things I thought about was that words are completely inadequate in terms of conveying spiritual realities and truths.  They can only offer outlines and hints compared the the inner reality we experience as we grow and develop.  And yet, here is this blog where we use words to talk about important spiritual things, because we don't have telepathy mastered, and that's about all we have to use.  And it pretty much suffices.

This is what I came up with so far. 
  • I've learned that "facts" change as we do. 
  • That spiritual learning has value to a point, but that it's worthless if not backed by love and compassion. 
  • That each of us is perfect in our imperfection, and that we can learn to see that perfection everywhere. 
  • That perhaps the biggest challenge (to me) is learning to love the unlovable: the ugly, the obnoxious, the offensive, etc. I keep working at that. I've been at it for over 20 years now, and I'm still peeling away layers of judgment and knee jerk dislike. 
  •  I've learned that, for me, there is no better feeling than the one I get when I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing, at that exact moment. 
  • I've learned that we cannot even conceive, from this worldly point of view, how crazy much God loves us. Until we experience it. That changes everything. 
  • I've learned, also, how good it feels to be crazy in love with God. 
  • I also learned, about 20 years ago, when I had that experience of God's amazing love, that there was nothing but nothing I wanted more than to tell people about it, so they could know that love, too. Out of everything I could have asked God for in that moment, that was the only thing I wanted. "Help me to tell them, God!" was my only request.  And that burning desire has never left me. This blog is finally helping me to do it.  
  • Maybe the most important thing is that there is a living God who loves us and wants to interact with us on a personal level.
This just scratches the surface, but it's a start.   

What have you learned?
