How Wayne’s World helped me find a state of grace
What is humility? I had always thought it meant realizing that I’m human, imperfect.
Now I have a fuller understanding of humility.
It’s a state of grace. One in which we not only realize that we are human and imperfect, we allow for that. We love and accept our human selves, in the face of our imperfections.
But wait, there’s more.
The other part to humility is that we also love and accept our Divine nature, too.
Yep. No more mental self-flagellation. (As in the words of Wayne and Garth, “We’re not worthy!!”) No more holding ourselves apart. No more keeping ourselves separate from our full connection with God.
By loving and accepting ourselves for our divine nature, we’re not elevating ourselves to a lofty level; we are simply embracing our full Spirit.
For me, understanding my human-ness is easy; I mess up a lot. Understanding I’m actually also Divine is a challenge; I get to work through my worthiness issues.
By embracing equally our humanity and our divinity, we find grace. And in that grace we are humbled. This grace opens us to asking for help — from both a higher Power and from people in our lives. We are not supposed to do all this alone.
Do you struggle with embracing either your human side or your divine side? If so, which one? Can you hold space for grace being found within celebrating both, together? Was this as much of a Holy Wow for you as it was for me?
