We Are Never Alone

My Spirit Teacher tells me that we are never alone
and that our interconnection with all life is not
in any way an impersonal one.

We are more than linked to each other, He assures me.
We each blend into and become, at least to some extent,
one with the other.

How is that possible?

The link is not between us, but within us.
Our energies vibrate in harmony, or in disharmony,
with everyone in our lives, and everyone is
in our life, for, there is only one Life,
that both sustains and contains all life forms;
everyone and everything that is.

What about thoughts?

What about them?

Are they all one thought?

How would that be possible?

Then, are they as forms of life, also
interconnected?

They are forms of life.

And emotions?

And emotions.

Uncategorized?

More and less.

Not more or less?

More and less.

Then, more and less than what?

More and less than we each attract
to ourselves.

Please explain.

Sometimes we attract certain thoughts
and emotions that we do not at other times
attract.

Can we learn how to attract those thoughts
and emotions that we prefer to attract, and
resist attracting others?

Yes.

How?

Practice awareness, or mindfulness,
as some call it.

Meditation?

Yes.

Alone or with a group or teacher?

Yes.

All Paths are One Path

Spirit tells me that if we believe in ourselves
then half of the struggle is over.

As in, well begun is half done?

Yes.

But, how can I know if I believe in myself
or whether I’m only pretending?

We can never know.

But, we do know if we have begun
to do whatever?

Yes.

But, if we seem to be working alone …

Alone is the only way we can work.

It can feel very lonely.

Then, your mind has wandered from the work
you set out to do.

Then, fight the good fight?

Yes, and trust that there are others,
many more others than you could possibly
be aware of, who are also fighting
your fight, on your side.

I wish I knew what it was all about.

Enlightenment, and clearing the path
that others might follow.

What if they prefer to clear their own path?

All paths are one path.

Ultimate Reality – Spirit’s I Ching 1 – The Creative

Spirit explains I Ching – 1 – The Creative.

 

Heaven over Heaven, the ultimate reality, or, as it has been described,

As above, so below.

 

Nothing creates itself alone. Nothing sustains itself, alone. And, nothing

Destroys itself, alone.

 

What about Life?

 

What about it?

 

Who or what creates, sustains, or destroys …

 

Life is self-creating.

 

But, you said ..

 

Life is not a who or what.

 

Then what?

 

Ultimate reality.

Alone or in a Crowd

Spirit tells me that individuality does not necessarily mean

Exclusion from oneness.

 

We each are as we each are, alone or in a crowd. We can

Never not be what we are, but we can pretend, for

Whatever reason or reasons.

 

However, the danger of pretending to be what we

Know we are not arises when we forget that we are

Pretending.

 

Our response to any experience is a very individual one,

Regardless of how many others may share that

Experience with us. Our personal response changes us,

Sometimes at a very deep level of our existence, our

Being, our essence.

 

This, Spirit tells me, is the purpose of experience:

To help us become aware of who and what we are,

As individuals and as one with Life.

 

 

 

Compassion flows as a Pressure Gradient

Spirit tells me that compassion flows

When it does, as a pressure gradient,

In response to a recognition of

Suffering, as that suffering flows

Back to us, to be relieved by

The compassion that we send

To those for whom we care for,

When we recognize their pain.

 

We may pity the plight of whomever,

And be thankful that we do not share

Their pain. but, claims Spirit,

When we feel compassion, we

Not only recognize the pain,

We feel it as we would our own.

 

Rules can teach  us, or try to,

To feel pity for people or animals,

In distress, but, only personal

Experience can teach us

Compassion.  It is

A precious gift we give, and in

The giving, we share a common

Bond. Compassion expresses

Awareness of having suffered, and

We share that experience with those

For whom we feel compassion.

 

Why do we feel compassion? We

Know the pain and, perhaps we

Suffered more than the one for

Whom we feel compassion, because

Perhaps we suffered alone, and

Could not Wish that pain

On those we care for, whether

We know them or not.
