We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
We’ve got to realize that we are only here (in the physical sense) temporarily. We’ve got to realize this so that we can then go forth and grab ahold of everything that brings us joy.
For most of us are here living a life of fear and caution – holding on to our physical life as if that’s all we have.
If we realize that we’re only temporary (and that we’re far grander than we think) then that might just be enough for us to throw caution against the wind. And I presume that the only way to fly is to throw caution against the wind.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
