“You become a bridge between the unmanifested and the manifested, between God and the world. This is the state of connectedness with the Source that we call Enlightenment.”Eckhart Tolle
It just occurred to me that maybe my internal pull between the astral and physical realms is exactly what my mission is about. I am a conduit between the two and my mission is integration and assimilation of the two worlds. I am the boots on the ground.
If I didn’t have a footing in the physical realm, I wouldn’t be able to fulfill my mission. The pull is inherent in my journey. It is my journey. I’m straddling the divide. My work is not to pick one but to bring them together, find congruency.
Real Estate is for my mind. It’s the way I work in the manifested world. Writing is how I nourish my soul, how I connect with and express the unmanifested. It is healthy to have both. I AM both manifested and unmanifested. I AM the bridge.
Religious corruption led to the need for science, objectivity and a preoccupation with economic security. Strange how this historical perspective of the last 1,000 years (from the Celestine Prophecy) mirrors my own life. My parents were highly spiritual when I was young then became disillusioned due to their discovery of their spiritual leaders’ corruption. They reset and rebuilt their lives on a seemingly more stable bedrock of scientific and financial security only touching the surface of their spirituality from then on (as far as I could see), no longer having it be at the core of their lives. I was raised to think more practically – not that I always did – and find my own way spiritually. And then, I found a mission to help people transcend financial obsession and align with their highest self. Now, I find myself on a spiritual quest. I’ve come full circle.
Last night, falling asleep, I saw myself between two doors, one to the manifested world, one to the unmanifested, existing in both planes at once. We all do. We are the bridge. The history of humankind brought us here.
