Spirit asks me if I practice caring for my home.
I don’t need to practice. I know how to do that.
Do you do it?
How well do you do it?
As well as I can, all things considered.
The time available, my energy level, and
my interest in doing so at any particular
So, caring for your home is a job?
Not as a paid job. It is a duty.
A duty to whom?
I enjoy living in a clean and well
cared for home.
Where is this line of questioning going?
To your community and to your relationships.
Caring wise or duty wise?
As with my home, I do what I can.
All things considered?
Is this a second verse or round two?
With personal possessions we have
a personal interest to care for them.
Surely we also have a personal interest
to care for our community and
I walked into that one.
Spirit shares words of wisdom.
Spirit tells me that it’s impossible to serve only oneself.
We are, each and every one, too interconnected for that
to be possible.
What if I catch my own fish, grow my own vegies and fruit,
and drink water from my own well?
None of that would be available to serve your needs
if others had consumed, destroyed, or contaminated
what you would otherwise enjoy.
Why would anyone do that?
Why would they not?
It would be self-destructive.
Spirit tells me that free will and destiny work together
To create a lifestyle. We each can, and must, choose
From available options, but only from those
Available options that we are aware of
At the time of our choosing.
Of course, a possibly different selection
Of options, may be available
To each one of us.
Spirit also cautions me that
The selection of options available
To each of us, now,
May be less or more
Than were available to us
At some earlier time, in our past, and,
The choices we make with
Our free will may expand, or reduce
The collection of options available to us
To choose from, in the future.
One choice alone is not available,
Claims Spirit, The option
Not to choose.
