It’s Appropriate To Be Human

by Ray Reuter on October 2, 2014

Yes, you and I are human. It is what it is. Embrace it! The first man and woman we read about resisted that idea and wanted to do something that would allow them to escape from their humanness and be like God. Being human was not good enough.

I struggle with and resist my humanness many times — like being human is not sufficient. And I have come to realize that God reverences my resistance. There’s more going on than what’s going on. It is appropriate to resist God; it is appropriate for human beings to be human.

God is simple — we are complicated!

Dear Human

Dear Human: You’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and where you’ll return. You came here to learn personal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love, infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of…messing up. Often.  You didn’t come here to be perfect.  You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous, and then to rise again to remembering. But unconditional love? Stop telling that story. Love in truth doesn’t need ANY other adjectives. It doesn’t require modifiers. It doesn’t require the condition of perfection. It only ask that you show up, and do your best. That you stay present and feel fully. That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as YOU. It’s enough. It’s Plenty.
