Sometimes, when we are on this journey of the evolvement of our soul, we tend to take things a little too seriously and because of this we tend to judge ourselves when we act or speak in a less than loving way.
Because of this being on a spiritual path can sometimes get quite heavy, as if we never left our old ways behind. So how to we continue to do our work and not be too serious about it all?
What if you were walking down the street and the side of the street you were on was shaded, cold and dark? And you looked across the street and saw that the sun was shining brightly, telling you it was, no doubt, much warmer and of course lighter over there. Wouldn’t you cross the street to get warm?
You can do this in your every day life but not taking yourself too seriously. If you can have a joke or play once in a while, even the spiritual life can seem unhappy. And let’s face it, the reason you started this little excursion was probably because you wanted to be happier in your life.
So if, for example, you say something to someone that you later think about and decide was not very nice, instead of being pulled in by the ego’s chastisement, give yourself a break, have a little compassion and a laugh and move on. It’s really not the end of the world.
Just because you consider yourself to now be a “spiritual” person, doesn’t mean to you have to kill off your sense of humour. Yes, it may change, the jokes may be different, but you’re still allowed to have a little fun.
Don’t worry so much about walking the straight and narrow. Just be in your loving space and nothing else will really matter.

See you on the sunny side of the street!
