Spirit tells me that spiritual and material values co-exist.
And, in reality, neither can exist exclusive of the other.
They are as essence and form.
The concept of spiritual and material as being mutually
Exclusive is common in seekers of so-called enlightenment.
Rejection or fear of either one suggests lack of awareness
Of their interdependency. Living a spiritual life does not
Necessarily require one to reject physical or material comforts.
Creation and all the beauty within it is expressed in form.
We each possess creative energy. We each are creative
Energy. Some of us are inspired to create whatever with
A greater emphasis on beauty than on practical
Application, while others concentrate more on structure
Than on style.
The secret, He tells me, is to discover my own values.
