There Are Times in Life For Physical Work And Then There Are Times In Life For Spiritual Work

For my entire life, I did not believe in God. I wasn’t totally atheist but I was agnostic. I did not believe in God because I needed it to be proven to me before I could see that it was true. Little did I know, I was going to get exactly what I was asking for.

I kept relatively good morals for my entire life, but I never maintained any sort of regular spiritual practice. Over the past year and a half, I have experienced a spiritual reckoning and awakening in which I have been shown the truth of the way that the universe— the way that God, works.

What I have been shown is that there are times in life for physical work, and there are times for spiritual work as well. Ideally, life should be a balance of the two. We must build ourselves up financially, physically, and structurally, in terms of working on the body and mind, through working out and through expanding the mind with education, but then there are times when we need to focus on the more spiritual or emotional aspects of life— guided by our intuition.

Before this spiritual awakening, I spent most of my life focused on the physical and mental, building myself up in order to succeed and achieve. However, I needed to also integrate the spiritual component into my life, and I was forced to do so in a big way. I was guided on a healing journey, showing me all the ways I had been living out of alignment with God and with becoming the best version of myself. I was forced to contemplate, repent, and understand the more spiritual aspects of the world in which we live.

As a collective, we are evolving. In order to become the best version of ourselves, we must work on the mind, body, and spirit daily. We must maintain ourselves and take care of ourselves, similar to how we would maintain a house or a car. We must develop a daily spiritual practice, a daily physical practice, and a daily practice to expand our minds. If any of these areas of life become out of balance, we will suffer as a result.
