Having A Spiritual Experience—And Beyond

If you are someone who is evolving spiritually, you might feel that you are a human being who is having a spiritual experience.

And then there is a step beyond that.

There is a bit of wisdom circulating these days. It is a reversal. It says that we aren’t human beings having a spiritual experience. Instead, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

And then there is a step beyond that.

Before I tell you what that step is, consider the following.

While working as a healer, my friend Rose Rosetree experiences her work as “a blissful surrender to co-creating with God”. Outside of that special situation, she reverts to experiencing her “human ego-centered identity”.

Rose told me that she enjoys the dramatic game of being human. She has challenged me to change her mind about continuing to play that game and instead to just go for enlightenment 100% of the time.

I would respond that the part about “co-creating with God” is a case of mistaken identity. Another reversal will clarify what the true identity is.

It’s not that you co-create with God. It’s that God co-creates with you.

And then there is a step beyond that.

It’s not that God co-creates with you. It’s that God creates you.

And then there is a step beyond that.

It’s not that God creates you. It’s that God is the only one who is really there, and the only one who has really been there the whole time.

And then there is a step beyond that.

It’s not that God is the only one who is really there. It’s that God is the only one who is really here.

By “here”, I mean inside of you, looking out at the ever-changing vista of creation.

In the ultimate reversal, the ever-changing vista of creation includes a person who has your name.

So the step that is beyond “I am a spiritual being who is having a human experience,” is to give a name to that spiritual being and to give a name to that human being.

Answers From Silence says, “Anyone could complete the following phrase with their own name: ‘I am God having the experience of being __________.’ ”

Fill in the blank.

  1. So true, Jeffrey. You bold man to name things correctly!

    And, okay, that is my experience. Unmasked and enjoyed and more properly described, thanks to you….

    Have to smile at that one 🙂

  3. Lynn Taylor says:

    I LOVE that! “I am a spiritual being who is having a human experience.”

  4. Pondering this post of yours a bit more, Jeffrey, I find a delightful bit of controversy among colleagues. You have sparked a series of posts that begins today at my blog.

    I’m quite sure that I didn’t challenge you to “change my mind” about my current state of consciousness and, instead, “go for enlightenment 100% of the time.” Although I can appreciate that you heard our conversation that way because of how you define Enlightenment.

    To this Enlightenment Coach, it is quite possible to be Enlightened and still have a human identity. Very controversial in the field of Enlightenment Coaching!

    Here is a link to a related post, freshly published at my blog, “Deeper Perception Made Practical”:
