As Spiritual beings having a human experience, we innately know and understand what spiritual qualities are. Even though we might not embody them fully, we most likely have an aspiration to possess them. These spiritual qualities can also be compared to the values that we uphold.
When I envision the Divine Source Creator, I imagine “someone” (for lack of a better word) who embodies and expresses all the Divine qualities that we wish we possessed, all of the time, everywhere.
We are body, mind, and spirit. We have a physical body, mental body, emotional body, and a spiritual body. Because of our spiritual body, we can embody Divine Spiritual qualities.
This would require that we look at ourselves honestly and kindly and work toward building them within us. This would also imply that we do not become self-critical and judgmental when we can see that we do not embody them.
Given that there are so many spiritual qualities, I believe, we each work with a subset of spiritual qualities in a lifetime. That is why we often have a theme running in our lives. Within the theme, our pursuit to gain knowledge, understanding, and wisdom of the quality can be experienced and felt.
For example, one of the primary themes in my life has been to express the Divine quality of COURAGE. Even a few years ago, I would have preferred to stay within my comfort zone and do nothing that demanded courage, standing up for myself, speaking up, taking calculated necessary risks or asserting myself in a healthy manner.
With greater self-awareness, I could see that the quality that was being demanded of me in many situations was Courage. As I took small steps that were aligned with Courage, I grew stronger and more self-empowered.
This led me to be more discerning in regards to my life and take bolder and more courageous action. As time unfolded my actions reduced unnecessary drama and disharmony in my personal life. This awareness makes me push myself whenever I need to step out in courage.
