My friend, I AM Saint-Germain. Many times you have discovered that satisfying your basic human needs can feel out of alignment with your desire to create something of value in the world. You have found yourself wondering why you can't meet your basic physical and emotional needs and, at the same time, walk a path of enlightened service to humanity.
Ask yourself if there is not a tension in your life between what you want and need from the physical world, and what you think would bring you the greatest joy in a spiritual sense?
Many of you have had this experience. You have had this experience as you attempted to reconcile your genuine desire to walk a spiritual path, with the needs that you have for security and comfort as a human being. You perceive that there is some kind of conflict between your spiritual goals and your material needs, when there really is not.
Instead of feeling frustrated and continuing to experience this conflict, why not recognize that your Soul has a plan and purpose for your life, and that you can support this plan and purpose in a way that takes care of the human you, too?
Better Understanding Your Soul's Plan and Purpose.
Yes, it is true that many of you have decided to walk a spiritual path on the Earth. You have chosen to align your human life with your Soul's Plan and Purpose, and this is commendable. You are also right to assume that you will be supported by Spirit as you do this. You will. But you should know that humanity holds a strong misperception about this that may still condition your thinking.
This misperception can be stated something like this: Now that you have decided to walk a spiritual path, everything in the physical world should get easier for you. Your troubles and challenges should disappear. You should be able to devote yourself to higher pursuits because your human needs will be taken care of by Spirit, without you having to pay much attention to them.
Well, there is nothing "wrong" with maintaining this belief, just as there's nothing particularly "right" about it, either. So, instead of asking yourself what is right or wrong about this belief, why not ask yourself what is true about it?
What Is the Truth About Your Soul's Plan and Purpose for You?
It is true that, yes, you are always loved and cared for by Spirit in profound ways. But it is equally true that you are responsible for taking care of your basic human needs, too. For example, you have needs for food, love, shelter, companionship, and so much more. And you have a definite role to play in this.
You are a co-creator with Spirit in this, just as you are in everything else. You are not alone in taking care of this. But neither are you exempt from participating. This is undeniable. This is Truth.
Remember this Fundamental Truth. You are a Spirit Being here on Earth, having a human experience. You are an embodiment of your Soul. And as we have already explored in recent broadcasts, your Soul has chosen to be here, so that it can fully experience the Truth of its Divinity in the physical realm.
Satisfying Your Spiritual Aspirations, and Your Worldly Needs.
The ultimate path that your Soul has chosen, is to return to perfect companionship with God. We have discussed this in a recent channeling. It is a spiritual path, to be sure. But it also involves you as a human being, too. And because your humanness is involved in this “path walking,” it subjects you to the limited perspective of your beliefs. Remember that your human self is generally guided by what you believe to be true, while your spiritual self is more receptive to the Truth.
You see, the real problem is this... By holding onto this belief that once you are walking a spiritual path, that your human cares and concerns should just disappear, you may actually begin to neglect your humanness and the legitimate care and concern it requires from you.
You forget the basics: that you are a spiritual being having a human experience, and that your human needs matter just as much as your fundamental spiritual identity.
You deny the fact that satisfying your human needs for good nutrition, proper shelter, personal accomplishment, and meaningful social interaction helps you lead a balanced life because these things engage your physicality, as well as your spirituality.
You need to remember that when you honor your physicality, that your spiritual aspirations can be met with greater ease, too. Yes, there is an important connection between your physicality and your spirituality. If there wasn't, you wouldn't be able to exist here.
How can you honor this connection between your physicality and your spirituality? You first begin by acknowledging and loving your humanness, and then asking yourself what you need in order to feel safe and secure in the world. You understand that by taking care of this, you create a foundation for embodying and sharing the things of spiritual value that you have brought into the world.
So honor your legitimate human needs. Take care of yourself. Ask yourself, what needs do you have that you haven't attended to, yet? Spend some time exploring this. I am not asking you to get dramatic or sentimental about it. It's simply about observing and exploring what is calling you now.
And please remember that “needs” and “neediness” are not the same thing. Neediness is a systematic belief in lack that has no basis in reality. When you consistently identify yourself as needy, you are eventually going to undermine your self-esteem and your self-confidence. Your needs, on the other hand, are not debilitating. They are simply part of your biological heritage. Furthermore, when you satisfy your needs, you are contributing to your basic experience of well-being. Your needs include proper nourishment, suitable shelter, loving relationships, and the appropriate exercise of personal autonomy within respectful, collaborative gatherings of other human beings.
Letting Your Humanity and Your Spirituality Walk Together.
Your human needs are important because they are part of your earthly experience. Don't deny them, don't hide from them. Instead, give them the honor and attention they deserve.
Dear friend, every aspect of your human life is important. This is something that many overlook, especially when they are more focused on fulfilling their spiritual desires and intentions.
Please understand that you will be in no position to help yourself in your spiritual growth, or to assist others, if you do not care appropriately for the well-being of your physical life. So, why not do it now? Realize that your physical needs are just as important as your spiritual aspirations. They walk hand-in-hand, just as long as you are here on the Earth. So, make sure that you give them the same importance. Don't forget to be actively involved in creating a balanced life for yourself on all levels... on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. All of these make up your earthly experience. As was mentioned earlier, you are a spiritual being having a human experience. You are here to honor and integrate this to the best of your ability.
When you do this, you will find that you are feeling more fulfilled with your life. That is because you are allowing everything to fill you: the wisdom of the Soul that guides you, the nourishing food that you eat, the warm bed that you sleep in, the wonderful music that you listen to, and the loving friends that surround you. All this is experienced on the same scale of importance in your human life. If you allow this, it will enhance your well-being while you are here on Earth, and it will help others around you to do the same.
Thank you, dear friends, for being here, today. It is a joy to share this place and time with you.
