Spirit v Human


If only I could win the lottery or come into some money, I could do all the things I wanted, I could be kind and spiritual, I could think more of others and make a difference, I could truly live my purpose‘.

Does this statement or something similar sound familiar?

It’s very easy to be spiritual when our human side is taken care of, when we don’t have to work and that human we reside in has everything it needs for us to just concentrate on being a spiritual being. But the truth is, that human does exist, it needs, it wants and it’s more often than not in control.

We are spiritual beings living in humans, we have humans and they have us and although our spirit being wants to spring out, most of us have to take care of the human and it’s personality first.

There are and have been some truly wonderful people on earth, people who’s humans have allowed the spirit through, even those that allow the spirit to lead, but it’s not common. It might be what we strive for, in fact I think that’s the whole idea of us being put together but it’s something that takes many lifetimes to achieve.

If only this, or if only that goes on throughout our lives, the relationship between spirit and human. And that’s it, if we consider it more of a relationship, we might help both parties have their say, conflict resolution, relationship guidance, call it what you will.

My spirit knows, I’m not sure how, call it a knowing that we are destroying the world, we are using up all the resources, polluting the air and seas. But the spirit lives inside the human that turns the light on, fills the car and needs a holiday in the sun. There is an ongoing conversation, should we, shouldn’t we’ within all of us and it’s because we are talking to ourselves, ourselves being the human personality and spirit within.

Many people go through life, totally human, the spirit is there but it’s asleep, it’s given in. It’s not an easy task after all and I suppose, if it is why we are born, it’s not supposed to be. But, if our spirit is strong enough, clear enough, it can get itself heard, the relationship can become more equal.

When we practice listening, we learn, if we sit in meditation or just silent contemplation for a little time each day, we are building the relationship between the two. We are allowing the spirit time to communicate and assisting the human in understanding. Isn’t that what we would recommend in any relationship, time together to create understanding and grow.

When we give ourselves, spirit and human, chance, both can be heard. It’s like any relationship, it needs time and space to grow. When we spend time each day, listening and communing with both parties, we are building the relationship, we are starting to work together, we are in rapport with who we are.

So perhaps it not about that lottery win after all, it’s not about giving the human everything it needs to release the spiritual side of us, perhaps it’s just about the relationship we nurture between the two that creates something beautiful.

  1. Hello Liza,

    I agree with you. Yes, we need money on Earth to live, and sometimes it is hard to be calm and spiritual if you have a problem with money,if your existence is endangered.But that part too start in our head, I believe in that deeply. We live in the abundance of everything, and this great planet has a lot of everything for everyone. But we must be ready to take that. We must have a faith in that, to get that!

    Thank you

    1. Absolutely Ben, it is all in our heads, or in what we believe because society tells us we should. I believe in trusting in the universe to provide, but my humanness does get in the way. My human can be a bit of a coward, but I’m training her and she’s listening 😊

      Thanks for your interesting comment and yes, I agree.

  2. Really awesome and I totally see what you are saying. I recently had a spiritual new level awakening when I became homeless and my whole attitude changed about attachment. I am so regular for the first time in my life and your right about being up and your up but then again when I was up, I was more on the human side even though I was spiting constant metaphysical talk. I’m not saying I wan’t real but I was relying too much on the excuse of authenticity to not be spiritual when I was supposed to be. I am glad to read your post. It was very much needed. Thank you Liza!
