Called up on the Carpet, Again

Dear Reader, I can’t remember what the distressing issue was all about or who it was that distressed me about what. Isn’t that wonderful? Perhaps we do have selective memory.

“Chela”, Spirit seems to sigh with hopeless resignation at my distress. Where is the compassion and understanding? Surely I have suffered enough.

“Chela”, my mind must have wandered. Blame it on stress.

“You have always, it seems, excused, or tried to excuse, obnoxious and, or abusive behaviour on the pretention, and I repeat, pretention, that it was due to a lack of development of more socially acceptable forms of behaviour, and not to a deliberate intent to offend or harm you. And then, though the incident stresses you to tears, you blame yourself for being too sensitive. When will you dare to accept that what seems abusive, is abuse”.

“It is a Law of Nature”, Spirit reminds me, for haven’t I heard this lecture a thousand times or more, “that every action we consciously, or through habit, choose to undertake, requires intent. And, when you, through need of whatever, choose to…

The Way of Arrogance

Can extremes of arrogance and humility be opposite ends of the same continuum, with The Middle Way being mid way between them?

I Ching as a Way to Enlightenment

A Spirit Teacher shares his understanding of
the I Ching Hexagram 26 – Great Accumulation,
with me and whomever else cares to listen.

Great Accumulation follows No Error (25)
and moves toward Nourishment (27).
Mountain is over Heaven.

Nothing is higher than Heaven, and yet,
in this instance, Mountain claims to be.

Can this express challenge to authority?

Yes.

How could such a situation develop from
No Error?

The pendulum has swung to the opposite
extreme.

Mountain is out of line?

In the eyes of Heaven, yes.

And Heaven is forever.

Forever what?

Not what, but in terms of time.

There is no time.

Then, what is the meaning?

When?

Now.

Nothing comes from nothing.

Then, No Error and Great Accumulation
can be seen as opposite extremes?

Of what?

Arrogance?

Yes.

How does this situation lead toward
Nourishment?

Awareness is as nourishment.

Awareness of the Middle Way?

Yes.

Beyond Love

A new year begins but life-long learning continues
as a spirit guide shares a precious gift of wisdom.

Wisdom is love, He tells me.

But, love is emotion.

Yes.

And, wisdom requires intellect.

Yes.

So, how can one be the other?

Which one?

Emotion.

Emotion is emotion.

And intellect is …

Intellect.

But wisdom is love?

Yes.

Then, is love wisdom?

When?

So, wisdom is love but love is not always wise?

Yes.

Then, wisdom would seem to transcend love?

Yes.

But, love is generally accepted by so-called
spiritual groups, and individuals, as being
supreme.

Yes.

This is an error of thinking?

Yes.

How to correct it?

With truth.

And how to find truth?

There is no way to find Truth. It finds you.
