Karisma Article: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood…

From my experiences and surviving personal challenges, I have come to realize that there are physical and spiritual warfares going on. Whether they test me emotionally, physically, mentally, or spiritually, they are real, and they seem to manifest within my world. Through my spiritual awakening, I am able to inner-stand what my personal journey and the collective journey are about.

Even though I am not religious, I have been guided to research and study many of the different religions and their belief systems. From what I gathered, there are truths and lies in many, if not all, religions. However, what I do believe is that there is a Divine Creator that goes by many names, such as God, Source, Consciousness, All-That-Is, etc. This BEING possesses the energy of love, and it permeates everything as an omnipresence, just as the presence of dust touches everything. And as the creation of its imagination takes place and forms, as Lao Tzu (an Ancient Taoist philosopher) once said, through this invisible force, we are given the opportunity to see ourselves. And through this, we are able to see what we are not and what we truly are.

Ephesians 6:12 King James Version

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
