Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom.
He tells me that I am the way I am because
that is the way I am.
The only question that seems to make any sense is,
So, why am I as I seem to be?
Your original nature has been modified
by experiences and reflection on those experience,
resulting in a personal interpretation, or
misunderstanding of the causes and consequences
resulting from previous experiences.
We learn from experience, and yet, some of us
learn quicker than do others.
Pain and pleasure seem to be necessary components
of our learning how to live in this World; and to
discover what works, or seems to, and what does not,
in different situations.
We learn that consistency of response is
inappropriate. What works with one situation does
not seem to work in another. We must also,
He tells me, learn to measure the quality of our
response to any given situation.
What ever made me think that living should be
easy? Perhaps that’s why the way I am is, or
seems to be, confusion, personified.
A spirit teacher shares gems of wisdom beyond
my capacity to fully understand; simple and yet
deep insights into life, as we each live it,
and how, He tells me,with a little effort
we each might live a life worth living.
Will I be pleased to be asked to share memories
of past experiences, He asks me.
What past experiences?
Your past experiences.
I couldn’t possibly remember them all.
How would it be possible?
But, my focus is on what I am experiencing now.
Because I must choose how to live today.
It’s too late to worry about yesterday.
What about tomorrow?
What about it?
Isn’t that my style of questioning?
So, you have chosen to adopt a way not your own?
It is my way, once I have adopted it.
Why did you adopt a new response?
It seemed more appropriate to this particular
situation than possible past responses might.
What does that mean?
It means that it’s never to late to change
the way we each respond to particular effects.
As in cause and …
Is that the message?
We each choose or at least contribute to
the next cause in whatever endless series
of cause and effect situations are
developing in our life.
