“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” – 2 Corinthians 4:18
Have you ever paused to consider your true nature? Often, we perceive ourselves as human beings navigating a spiritual journey, but what if we flipped that perspective? What if we recognized that at our core, we are spiritual beings temporarily experiencing life in human form?
In the hustle of daily existence, it’s easy to get caught up in the tangible aspects of life—the physical, the material, and the visible. We become entangled in the pursuits of success, possessions, and external validation. However, when we fix our gaze solely on these earthly matters, we risk losing sight of our deeper, spiritual essence.
The truth is, you are not just a collection of flesh and bones moving through the world. You are a spiritual being inhabiting a human body, and your experiences on this earth are but a chapter in the grand narrative of your eternal existence.
Understanding this truth can transform the way you approach life. It reminds you that your value isn’t measured by the world’s standards but by the eternal love and purpose your Creator has for you. It encourages you to seek higher truths, deeper connections, and a life that aligns with your spiritual essence.
When you acknowledge your spiritual nature, you begin to view challenges as opportunities for growth, relationships as opportunities for love and connection, and each day as a gift from the Divine. You recognize that your actions carry weight not only in this world but in the spiritual realm as well.
This perspective doesn’t diminish the significance of your human experience; rather, it elevates it. It infuses your earthly journey with purpose, compassion, and a longing for the eternal. It reminds you that your life has a greater meaning beyond the confines of time and space.
As you go about your day, remember that you are not merely a human on a spiritual quest. You are a spiritual being having a profound human experience. Embrace this truth, and let it guide your choices, actions, and interactions. Seek the eternal amidst the temporal, and you will discover a deeper sense of fulfillment and purpose on this remarkable journey of life.
