On Spiritual Experiences

At my coach’s suggestion, I just started reading  Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You by Deepak Chopra. I’m actually not a big Chopra fan (not that there’s anything wrong with him), so I was surprised that on page three, still in the introduction, I had to stop and capture a train of thought. I’ve no idea if it will go anywhere, but I must follow it, nonetheless.

Chopra is talking about the relationship between the soul and the body. “We invented the separation between the two, and then came to believe that separation was real. You may object that you’ve never felt ecstatic or sensed the presence of God. This simply reflects our narrow conception of the soul, confining it to religion.” That brings to mind an idea that (I believe) was coined by Wayne Dyer: We are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Both of which bring to mind – What if everything we do is a spiritual, or soulful, experience? I’ve heard people say, “I want to have more spiritual experiences.” What if doing the dishes is a spiritual experience? Paying our bills? Shopping for groceries?

I don’t mean that we make them spiritual experiences, say by practicing mindfulness (which is always a great idea, in my book), but that those things – the moments that make up our lives (not just the transcendent ones) – are spiritual experiences, in and of themselves.

I believe that we are not only spiritual beings having a human experience, but that we are actually the eyes and ears of God. We, through our actions and emotions, are the way that Source Energy (of which we are a part) gets to experience Its creation.  That would make everything we do – from taking out the trash and slaving at the J.O.B. to prayer and meditation – spiritual experiences.

And that would make our lives infinitely more meaningful than we think they are.

That would make our actions divine.

All of them.

    Well written! I agree with the thoughts you have expressed here, though it’s not easy for me to see washing my dishes as a spiritual event since they are always a daily chore as I have no dish washer! =-\

    But I do see a clean sink as divine outcome 😉
