Some people fall in love with potential. The Spirit is magnificent and simple and can be grasped in a flash. The human self is complicated and has many sides and takes time to know. The human condition has enormous complexity. How many different moods, feelings, interactions, and events take place for each of us on just one day? And this happens the world over, for the billions of people in it. All this complexity and variety makes up the human condition.
To understand someone we encounter, we need to see the person’s Spirit and the person’s human condition, we need to see them together. The same holds true if we want to understand ourselves. We need to see our Spirit, which is our essence and potential and our human expression, which is our stage of awareness and actualization at the time.
