👁 WATCH YOUR SPIRITUAL EGO 👁
As we raise consciousness collectively, there tends to be judgment towards those that haven’t awakened to the level that you have. Or frustration with people being a certain way, not doing things within your expectations.
Spirituality isn’t a race. Every single person you deem good or bad is a spiritual being. Because they’re not at their optimal level (from your viewpoint), it doesn’t give us the right to judge, compare, make assumptions. We never know fully what another person is going through, we don’t know their journey, their struggles. And yes, you’ve struggled, yes you’ve fallen from grace. But to assume that they’re not “good enough” is a toxic social pattern that we have to work out of.
And we tend to lean on this behavior with ourselves. And comparing yourself, making yourself feel bad because you might not be as “lit” as another is an unhealthy pattern. In actuality that’s counterproductive to spirituality in general. Once you make the choice to acknowledge your magic, your whole world changes. Spirituality isn’t a race. It’s understanding that even though a situation isn’t ideal, you have empathy towards the unseen, the unknown. You’re ok with what they’re not able to share with you.
