Individuation is a process of discovery, finding out who you are, why you are there, and what purpose life has in mind for you personally. Will you discover who you truly are and what you are capable of in this lifetime? Will you follow your dreams this time around? Will you allow your spirit to fully live through you, so that you may know this ethereal self? It’s up to you. Individuation is the unfolding journey that leads to the discovery of all that you are, your fuller potential unleashed, so that no part is left behind or unlived. Life, it’s quite a wonderful journey, especially when all of you gets to live it!

Life is a journey that never ends, for the spirit is eternal and forever evolving. When one life ends another begins, the spirit’s evolution the main purpose. Turn to your spirit more often to gain knowledge of it and its purpose, for there is more to you than you know. For you and everyone else is eternal and thus full of all that eternity is full of. In finding your spirit you will find that you are full of knowledge and wisdom as well as eternal life.

Chuck’s Place: Spirit In the Flesh

Organizing my tools for easy access, I discover eccentric looking wrenches I may have used only once. Truth is, I don’t even remember what for. What to do with these valuable but perhaps once in a lifetime project savers, as well as the countless mini hex wrenches and screwdrivers that accompanied furniture projects to be assembled?

I soberly face the hidden truth of my tool hoarding, and perhaps all hoarding as well: eternal life parks its spirit in the material items of this life. The belief is that someday all items will be used. The someday of hoarding encapsulates infinity, life without end; never throw anything out.

Spirit is eternal life. Spirit is the intent that manifested our physical world to take material journeys with its infinite spirit. The Faustian small print of that agreement is the actual short life of all things material. We crave to live spirit in the flesh, yet spirit as trickster dares us to face our material mortality.

This bipolar human condition is the opposition of infinite spirit and mortal body. When we inflate we momentarily commune with infinity. This is the motive behind all addictions. The spirit to obtain unlimited more—be it the compulsion to pile boundless money, to ingest bottomless drug or food, to collect vast wardrobe and material goods, or to cling to relationship—is the quest to experience infinite spirit in material form.

Deflation and depression are the crash of Icarus: the material world is a world of limitation. Once spirit approaches material limits, it abandons its projected love object. The result is that we deflate into a spiritless morass. That which once glowed with transpersonal union is judged as both human ignorance and failure.

Sobriety is the path that intends acceptance of human limitation while maintaining a relationship with spirit. The shamans of ancient Mexico concluded each introduction of their personal names with the caveat: “…a being who is going to die.” This was their technology of sobriety. By constantly reaffirming their mortality they freed themselves to be fully present and spiritedly alive to every moment of life in human form.

This attitude of ultimate equanimity countered the misguided but powerfully embedded human attitude that we have forever. Hence, we needn’t acknowledge the shadow of death that stalks us all.

Yes, we may have forever in spirit form, but this appears to be our only opportunity to be in the specific human life we are in. If we languish in spirit identification without actualizing in human form, potential fulfillment will have to wait for another time, in another place, in a different life.

Without spirit we could not exist in the flesh. Yet spirit demands we take responsibility for reconciling the fact of our bipolar human condition. Spirit presents us with countless material false god trials onto which it projects itself. The inflations and deflations of human life lead us to stare down the trickster side of spirit and realize the possible in the life we are in.

With this, spirit is enhanced and fulfilled, both in this life and in its ultimate journey beyond.

May all find the fortitude to truly realize their Spirit in the Flesh.

Don’t forget that you are more than you think you are, for you are spirit as well as flesh and able to do all that you imagine spirits can do, to know, to intuit, predict and shape your life. Tap into this natural all-knowing self each day and ask for guidance. You may be surprised at first how you are responded to, but eventually you will come to know this other, sacred self, who only has your best interests in mind and wishes you only marvelous things. It’s not that hard to access this spirit self. Just go to your heart and with innocence ask for help and guidance, and with innocence be open to receive.

Sending you love,

Continue to make decisions that are in alignment with your spirit but also in alignment with your physical body, for if your physical self is not kept in tiptop shape your spirit will have difficulty reaching you. When the needs of your physical self are overpowering, your spirit gets lost in the muck. Keep your whole self in good order, body and spirit, so that there is no lack in communication, activity level, or mental calmness. When in good alignment you will know it by the serenity of your whole body.
