Spiritual Sundays: The Views of an Awakened Man || Russell Brand

Sunday, across the board, is a day commemorated to religious gatherings and dissemination of spiritual knowledge that is supposed to get you through the week.

Though I don’t believe in religiosity, so to speak, I do believe that it is important to consistently devote time to the growth of the your spiritual being. I try to set time aside out of everyday to do this in some regard (whether it is meditating, reading something spiritual, or doing yoga, etc.). However, I know that it is easy to fall short of this and that’s why people rely on Sunday to bring them back to the light and prepare them to deal with their next week of life.

Well, even if Sunday is the only day you get to pay attention to your Spirit Man, then I want to aid in that weekly feeding of your souls. I can’t blog about something spiritual every time I blog but I can make sure once a week, I try to bless you all with some soul growth and knowledge so that we may grow and progress, hopefully becoming a bit better with each new thing our spirits learn and explore.

And that’s why I have decided to start, Spiritual Sundays.

I was browsing through WordPress, looking for good reads from other awesome blogs, of course, and I stumbled across this video of Russell Brand on a blog called Grateful Living Now. Now if you don’t know, Russell Brand is actually quite the spiritually enlightened being. In this video he was straight preachin’!! Not in that judgmental, condemning way, no no no. But preaching pure love, light, unity, and oneness consciousness. Take a look at this video and open yourself, even if only momentarily, to Russell Brand’s perspective and inspiring light. He’s speaking real truth here!

I hope you enjoyed the video. Feel free to ask questions or share your thoughts.

Endless Love & Light to All You Lovely Beings.

Namaste.

Life is a Board Game

life-game

It might rain…

Today is a slightly cooler day than the last few have been. Hot & muggy yet and still but the wind has picked up a little & the sun is much too low in the sky for a normal summer afternoon in the state of Texas. I told Triiinity my assessment on nature and she nodded in agreement, satisfied with my logic. This got me thinking…

Life is like a Board Game.

Or a game of any type, really. It could actually be compared to one quite literally, in fact. Just think for a minute how things happen and they mean other things. for instance, the sky is gray and its windy outside. We determine that some sort of inclimate weather will probably ensue. Or even something as simple as inferring that if someone gets hurt really badly they might die. Cause & Effect. In this world, just as in a board game, everything is up to chance. Just like rolling a dice. However, there are natural rules to how things should go and what thing’s cause brings about which effect. Much like the rules of a board game.

As I sat on the floor near a window, I watched the wind blow through the trees. The visual started to look a little unreal to me. Much like the snap-in stagings of the once-popular game Life, or something. This not the first time I’ve felt like this. I have, many times, just been thinking to myself while walking and it is as though my vision changes and even so much as the feeling of the concrete beneath my shoes begins to feel like a farce. I’m a game piece and all the world is my playground.

This can be a surreal, but quite reaffirming feeling for me. I once read a tweet by @nowomennnocry that said “what if when you die, you wake up as an alien & your alien friend comes up to you and says ‘dude you’ve been trippin’ balls for like 5 minutes.”

Just think about that idea for a second. That this whole life you’re living could be a drug-induced hallucination, or a round in a very advanced virtual reality machine…in theory.

Another of my favorite tweets comes from @Illumination who said ” Life is a beautiful dream…I hope to awaken someday.”

These profound statements, as well as the ability to compare to life to a board game, are proof to the idea that this life is not all there is. This realm is not all there is. It is not the most important thing there is. This life is just one small stop in our eternal journey as spirits.

Learn all you can & embrace it to the fullest..but don’t take it too seriously.

Namaste.
