Who are you without your spiritual story? – Jeff Foster

, , 4 Comments


Hello friends. I wanted to read out another piece that I
wrote called ‘Who are you without your spiritual story?’. I know this piece has touched a nerve for
many of you. Thank you for all your feedback. WHO ARE YOU WITHOUT YOUR SPIRITUAL STORY? Please, don’t talk to me about ‘Pure Awareness’
or ‘Dwelling in the Absolute’. I want to see how you treat your partner,
your kids, your parents, your precious body. Please, don’t lecture me about ‘the illusion
of the separate self’ or how you achieved permanent bliss in just
7 days. I want to feel a genuine warmth radiating
from your heart. I want to hear how well you listen,
take in information that doesn’t fit your personal philosophy. I want to see how you deal with people who
disagree with you. Don’t tell me how awakened you are, how free
you are from ego. I want to know YOU, beneath the words. I want to know what you’re like when troubles
befall you. If you can fully allow your pain and not pretend
to be invulnerable. If you can feel your anger yet not step into
violence. If you can grant safe passage to your sorrow
yet not be its slave. If you can feel your shame and not shame others:
If you can fuck up, and admit it. If you can say ‘sorry’, and really mean it. If you can be fully human in your glorious
divinity. Don’t talk to me about your spirituality,
friend. I’m really not that interested. I only want to meet YOU. Know your precious heart. Know the beautiful human struggling for the
light. Before ‘the spiritual one’. Before all the clever words.
