Respect others exactly where they are in their journey
If they want to speak out against the crimes of the world, let them
If they want to sit under a bush with their legs crossed, in a state of detachment, allow that
If they are following their own inner path from one state of awareness to another, witness that
If they are not meeting your own standards of whatever “spiritual” currently means to you, reflect
Respect each’s journey. We *are* getting there
Respect each’s freedom to be ‘active’ or ‘apathetic’ -from your point of view
How do you know what your next step is on your journey? It’s whatever is showing up for you right now. If that’s wiping your own ass and attending your own healing, that’s spiritual. If it’s spreading truth about control systems and bringing light to crimes against humanity, that’s spiritual too.
Freedom is the right to choose. Projection and judgement is control. Unless it isn’t.
