We are not here to be disembodied spirits. We are here to bring spirit down consciously into form. Spirit inhabiting form and knowing itself as form. Consciousness seems to be be evolving in its capacity to deepen through us – its medium.
The body is an access point for consciousness to sense into what is going on both within ourselves and without. Over time our capacity grows in learning how to occupy ourselves in our inner being, our senses, and in regards to our feeling selves.
