Pebbles on the Shore

Some find that any mention of the challenges in life that need to be coped with, to be an act of negativity.  Some only want to speak of love and light as if there are no challenges in the world.  Of course on the spiritual path of enlightenment we are yearning for and bringing love and light into our hearts, and this is the most important spiritual work that can be done in a lifetime. But then the love and light that we receive must be used as power to help ourselves, our loved ones and those around the world.

I am frightened by those who speak of nothing but love and light because in real life there are many experiences that as human beings we have to cope with in our personal lives, in the lives of our loved ones and in the lives of all those on the planet.

We need to be like the water that flows over the pebbles on the beach.  Ultimately the water changes the shape of the rocks because it is powerful and always flowing.

We need to come down off our mountain tops of spiritual escapism and face the challenges of the world.  This is the only way to find true happiness. Avoiding that which needs to be transformed can bring a superficial happiness, but one will never find the depth of happiness without finding the love and light of the Divine within one’s heart and then using it to reach out to others.

True happiness is service to others.

Great insight can be found in the writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, founders of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, India.  When I read their books I receive great help in following the spiritual path, and I also receive an understanding that this knowledge must be used to create a better world.  The only way our world problems will ever be solved is if we evolve spiritually. We have to evolve into a human race that will make the kinds of decisions necessary for a healthy and peaceful world.
