Grow up! That’s an interesting statement!! Growing up and waking up are critical stages in the human experience. But I read somewhere recently that growing up first is really important. – I can’t agree more. I woke up to some extent first. As in I had a spiritual experience when I was 18 years old which was an enlightening experience, the problem for me is that I wasn’t mature enough to appreciate the significance of what had happened to me and as a result I allowed myself to follow other people’s perceptions of spirituality.
‘Waking up’ ‘getting woke’ is heavy stuff people. And it takes a person who’s also ‘grown up’ to handle it.
Grownups handle their shit. Grownups don’t enthrone so called leaders, headship, dictators, pastors, self-proclaimed gurus, and mentors whatever to some undue exalted position in their lives.
I firmly believe immature men are looking for corporations, churches, gangs, armies, countries to lead them.
Growing up for me means a deep intrinsic awareness of my personal divinity, and a recognition that with Divinity comes Responsibility.
When I waffle like this please don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying evangelise anyone to my way of thinking. Heck I’m passed that, life taught me the hard way; ‘when you think you know the answer, life changes the question.’ But I do wax philosophical on my thoughts and impressions. Please leave your comments and join the conversation, get your 2 pence in.
But divinity is a big thing for me. I remember a men’s bible study when I did the church thing and the pastor doing his utmost to take apart the verses that state that we as mortal humans are Gods. He was trying to say that to take these verses for what they clearly stated was false doctrine. Heck, yea you might actually get empowered and realise who you are. We are powerful entities people and when we take responsibility for the power in us and use it for good starting with ourselves the possibilities are off the chain.
