The Glowing Little Being

Something I wrote this morning for a new book (not Love and Enlightenment)…

The Glowing Little Being

When I was a kid, a little kid, I wanted to be a zookeeper. When I made the unfortunate decision to announce this fact, some adult, I don’t remember who, said, “Ah, so you want to shovel animal poop all day?”

With one sentence my childhood dream was shattered. Who knows how things would have turned out differently had I not heard that?

The obvious lesson here is to be careful about what you say to little kids, even in jest. The not so obvious is be careful what you say to adults, because inside each of them is a little kid.

But the spiritual lesson, the one that’s not so obvious at all, is that inside every living thing is a little, glowing being. A quiet little being who just wants to glow and radiate love, because glowing and radiating love is what makes them happy.

I find it easiest to see this glowing little being in children and plants and animals. It’s harder to see it in adults, but it’s there. It’s within all of us.

I don’t like to pin down the you-thing. I don’t like to say, “You’re really pure Awareness,” because that limits us and defines us and restricts us.

But you are (sort of) that glowing little being. That glowing little being who’s happiest when you’re allowed to love unrestricted.

Which reminds me of something She/We/I wrote in Mystical Oneness, in the You chapter.

The Perfect

The Tao is an empty vessel; it is used, but never filled.
Oh, unfathomable source of ten thousand things!

— The Tao Te Ching

Once upon a time there was an orb of gold.

It was larger than ten thousand suns.

It was pure gold. It had no imperfections.

It was perfect, but it was lonely. So it heated itself up until it was molten, and it spun itself around until billions of tiny droplets of gold had formed around it.

It cooled and became a solid orb again.

The droplets also cooled and they became tiny, solid orbs of gold.

They too were pure gold. They too had no imperfections.

Over time, the tiny orbs collected dust upon their perfect surfaces.

They took the dust personally.

And for the rest of Eternity, they thought they were flawed.

You are not the dust that clings to you. You are not the thoughts your mind has. You are not the emotions that your body feels.

You are not flawed. You never were.

You are perfect. You always were.

You are a tiny orb of God Herself.

One hundred percent pure.

One hundred percent Divine.

One hundred percent perfect.

  1. Thank you so much for this! A friend and I were just talking about similar experiences with something that was said to us when we were young that had an effect on our life choices. I really appreciate your writing – I began following you because I am living in a van, but I am so blessed to have gained so much more from all you have shared. Thanks!

  2. Thank you Mr. Wirs…
    I really feel connected to you although I dont understand each word 100%

    but these words hits me…

  3. Dear Wayne,
    do you have an idea about what animals feel about their lives here on earth and the way we treat them? I feel deep pain when I see an animal suffer, and many spiritual teachers never adress that topic. Do they feel pain the way we do? Do they suffer the way we do? Can they forgive us? Where do they go when they die? Why do they have to make such terrible experiences?

    Greetings from Germany,

    • How amazingly synchronistic! I just wrote about these topics less than two hours ago for the new book. One essay on a chipmunk I saw this morning clutched in a red-tailed hawk’s talons, and one essay on how I unconsciously avoid stepping on flowers since awakening.

      Amazing! (Great minds must think alike.) You’ll see these posts in the book.

  4. Yesterday night, I was going back home. Suddenly I had that “being in the moment” thingy (I have no other words to describe it). I’ve realized that all this time, I’ve never been there and all those people around me were not there with me. Then I felt everything around and started laughing stupidly. Someone was crying someone was laughing, but it made no difference for me.
    When I switched channel “ME” there was a train: You had it, but you’ve lost it -I didn’t had anything, it had me -You want it, so you’ll never get it…

    Just wanted to share 🙂

    • “started laughing stupidly”

      Yeah. One woman I knew used to blurt out, “I love you” at totally normal things. I get misty-eyed all the time I’m so happy. It’s a weird and wonderful thing, this… whatever it is.

  5. I try to treat children with the respect I normally reserve for adults
