This week’s featured Q&A comes from the 8/8/2020 Double Digit:
Q: Someone I respect told me I am too serious about my spiritual work; how can I do better with spiritual work?
A: How could you do better? Do you do it? Then you’re doing it. Are you too serious about it? Then laugh more. You see, many times, people believe that they have to convince other people that their practice would be suited for others. And that is not the case. So what are you doing? Everyone’s spiritual practice is their own.
Now, if you are militant about it, if you are adamant that everyone on the planet needs to adapt your spiritual practice and technique, you might be a bit serious about it. If you are wallowing in spirit, rolling around in the love of you, and the elevation of true enlightenment. Spirit is very funny. To have a vision of you wallowing around it could get a little chuckle here and there, but you’re not going to necessarily convince someone else that your way is the right way. So understand that everyone has an opinion. They’re a bit like noses. Everyone’s got one.
So it is all right to approach your spirituality with honor and the solidness. If that works for you, then why let others take your power away? Once again, stand in yourself as to what works for you, dearest. And know that what works for you may or may not work for someone else. But that doesn’t make them any less human, or any less spiritual, or any less committed to their practice. All you can do is allow your spiritual growth to be seen without defending it. And you can do that wherever you are.
The Vessel, Marilyn is having some flowers and patio stones put into her front yard. She’s talking to a young man who calls himself “Louisiana Ginger” because he’s from Louisiana and says he has ginger hair. And he says, he loves coming down and talking to “The Vessel” and “The Joy” because they’re not so serious in their committed spirituality.
He interrupts Joeaux’s meditation when she sits on the sofa by the window, listening to the birds. It is because he loves the energy of Joeaux, and their spiritual growth has infused within their field. So spirituality is not something that has to be serious. Spirituality can be whatever your feeling about it is. And sometimes, it is important to be very solemn and honoring.
Sometimes it is important to laugh and roll in your spirituality and play because spirit also plays. So ask yourself, does it matter what someone else thinks and why? Just because you respect someone, doesn’t mean that they have to convince you that they’re right or convince them that you’re right? You could both be right for yourselves, and that is a part of the key. That is a part of that wisdom. Part of the duality coming into one, which is what the 8/8 month is all about. Take a deep breath, dearest, and say, “What can I learn from this conversation with my friend I respect?”
“The Vessel” and “The Joy” laugh and play a lot… and get very serious a lot. Our dear friend, Lee Carroll, laughs and plays a lot. We’ve not seen anyone’s humor quite like his; it is quite entertaining. He’s also the most spiritual person that The Vessel, Marilyn knows. Understand that just because you are spiritual, doesn’t mean that you cannot laugh. And just because you laugh, does not mean that you’re not spiritual. What works for you, dearest? And then know that your practice is sacred unto itself and you need not defend it to anyone, because it is your practice. —Adironnda & The Council of Light
