To be human we have the opportunity to grow all the way to enlightenment. But to think of the human stage as simply for enlightenment shortchanges the potential of humanity. It is through the human that the spiritual nature underlying the universe actualizes its potential in a way that it knows. I will address not only the potential for nonduality and enlightenment, but the inherent value in being human and having a true authentic human life. Recognizing that being human we are the locus through which the ultimate nature actualizes its potentialities we see that we are not only indispensable for spiritual realization, but that we can know and experience the infinite potentiality of Being, which is magical and endless. Our human life can be a magnificent adventure, a wormhole through which the secrets of being arise and express themselves. Realization or awakening is simply the beginning of living such true and complete human life.
