Prioritizing Spirit in a Physical World
Everyday I see how difficult it is to prioritize the Spiritual in a world that glorifies the physical world. Society conditions us to believe that our pursuit of happiness revolves around the physical journey; chasing money, relationships, and higher status.
My truest desire is to live a life of true love, peace, and happiness, a pure inner state that is not dependent on anything external.
Many times on my journey, I’ve made the decision to be spiritually led, but I feel like it’s still so easy to drift away. When I’m working too hard, I become distracted by my own emotions, wants and needs for survival.
I worry about how things will come together if I don’t take more control….
I fall into the trap of trying to fulfill my dreams and happiness through external things like money, relationships, and social recognition.
The hardest part of my journey is not compromising my vision for the sake of making money. As a dancer, it’s easy to be led astray by all the gimmicks and illusions of the commercial world.
According to the societal norm, If I want to be a professional performer (the kind that has thousands of instagrams followers) I should change my appearance and style to be the sexy “bad bitch” that sells.
I’ve tried doing what I thought it takes to get into that world… I am always disappointed. It only brings me closer to becoming someone else and further from myself.
I’m at the point where I’m so exhausted, I’ve been through so much to get where I am and I no longer have time to waste on identity crisis.
Chasing dreams from the outside in has been fruitless and unfulfilling…none of my physical accomplishments have had long term success,not in relationships, jobs, or my dance career.
On this physical journey, My recurring theme has been return to Spirit… I don’t want to keep falling for the illusions and traps that leave me constantly striving for things that will never fulfill me.
I just want to be MY Highest Creative Self.
I just want to live my passion on this Earth and make a positive impact while I’m here.
I know it’s not the path of highest popularity, but in my soul I know that fulfilling my inner purpose is the only path that brings lasting happiness.
seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
