A Thought from Oprah

I often listen to Oprah’s podcasts and one of the things I have heard her say that resonates with me is:

“We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”  – Oprah Winfrey

When we are caught up in the busy activities of daily life; when our feet hit the ground running and we don’t take time to pause, spirituality gets set aside. If we spend a lot of time in a negative head space, or get caught up in the drama of others, we may not be connected with the spiritual side of ourselves.

But when we pause, when we find the time to be silent, we find the center of ourselves. It is in absolute stillness that we are able to feel the connectedness of the universe, the peace that comes from feeling settled in knowing that our soul is the foundation of everything that brings us value.

Every time we do an act of kindness, speak nicely to ourselves or others, live to our value system, encourage and praise our loved ones and forgive those who have hurt us, we are in a state of spiritual being. When we focus and feel grateful for our blessings, we are in a state of spiritual being. We when take the time to be silent, to be in a reflective state, we are connected to our soul.

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. When we understand this, we are free to begin living it.
