We Each Change Everything

Spirit tells me that I can only be or become
the person I already am; the person I have
always been and always will be.

I can understand that I am who I was and
will be, but can I become other than I am?

Yes. We change everything and everything
changes us. We are not what we were or
what we may yet become.

So, I’m both a who and a what?

You are not a who; you are who. And,
you can never be a what, whatever what
you may have in mind.

What am I if I am not what I am?

You are a woman.

But, that’s not unique.

The woman you are is unique.

In what way?

No other woman is you.

Being is not enough.

Enough what?

Achievement.

Being doesn’t require much achievement.

But, I want to achieve.

What?

I don’t know.

Nothing can be achieved without effort.

And acquiring something requires effort?

Yes.

And effort requires intent?

Yes.

And intent comes before effort?

Yes.

And what comes before intent?

Desire and a chosen way to achieve
what is desired.

And opportunity?

Yes, but sometimes we must create
our own opportunities.

How?

Observation and preparation, with
help from synchronicity.

Chance?

Call it what you will, but first
do nothing until you know what to do.

How to do nothing?

Practice.

Meditate?

Yes.
But, I

Confidence As A Trap

Spirit asks me what it means to be intelligent.

To be able to think.

What does it mean to be able to think?

About what?

About anything.

To think is to become aware of what is happening
in and around me.

No.

How can I become aware without first thinking?

How can you think without first becoming aware?

Then, thinking is to intentionally focus on
whatever I become aware of?

For what purpose?

To understand.

To understand what?

Why it is the way it seems to be,

Why?

To satisfy my curiosity.

And?

To consider how to respond to this new
awareness.

Yes.

But …

But what?

If I have developed a response that has become
a habit, how would thinking be involved?

It would not be.

Thinking would be bypassed?

Yes.

Then, I would become as the scientist’s dog?

Yes.

Expecting results that may not happen?

Yes.

So, what is the answer?

To what?

How is it possible or even desirable to use
precious time considering results other than
what we have become confident of, if those
results are all that we are familiar with?

How to consider the unexpected?

Yes.

Confidence can become as a trap.

The wild card?

Yes.
To understand what?

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.

There is no lasting structure

Spirit shares gems of wisdom.

Spirit tells me that everything I say or do should be for a reason
that I understand and can accept responsibility for.

He encourages me to live life here and now, day by day, and to create
a living and lived philosophy of life, and to become what I know I can
become; more and more what I really am, by living with purpose and
meaning.

That sounds beautiful but how do I set attainable goals.

These are attainable goals.

But, the horizon is too distant and unattainable for me. I need
structure.

Yes, and there is none, none that is lasting.

Limits are for pushing

Spirit tells me that limits are for pushing.
We seem to need to know that whatever we
have become and however we have expanded
boundaries that once seemed as horizons and
beyond our reach, we must go even further.

We are, as we were, much more than curious.
We are, as we were, determined to discover
how far we yet can go.

How far is it possible for us to go?

In reality, there are no limits.

A long-term project

Spirit asks me to make a promise to be.

To be what?

The best that we can be.

The best what^

What are we?

I don’t know.

We are seekers of ever-greater light.

I think I am, now. But what to do with the light I find when I know there must be even more?

Share what you have found while still reaching for more.

This could become a long-term project.

It is. It lasts forever, but, so do we, in one form or another, or in no particular form at all, if in any.

Free will is never free

Spirit tells me that in many ways the past cannot be changed, but

Our understanding of past experiences is, at least to a certain extent,

A reflection of our intellectual and emotional maturity, at any given time,

As well as the degree of truth of information we received from others

Concerning the events in our past.

 

Even facts can be misinterpreted, intentionally or otherwise. We may

Also learn to accept that any past events necessarily developed out of

Even earlier situations, as well as from choices made by ourselves or others.

 

Through a continuous process of change, caused by forces beyond our

Control, at least to some extent, the choices we make today will limit or

Expand the choices available to us tomorrow.

 

We are what we have become and we will be what we become.

 

Where does free will fit into the picture?

 

Free will is never free.

 

We are what we seem to be

Spirit tells me that we each seem to need to be, or

To pretend to be, what we need to be.

 

And, we each seem to need to become something other than

What we are, now, or something that we do not yet believe

We are, but desire to become.

 

If we would allow ourselves to relax and let go of our tight hold on

Needing to be what we are not, and allow ourselves to become

What it is we believe we are destined to become, then we might

Discover; then we would discover that we are now what we seem

To be and that it feels comfortable just being what we are, if

We like what we seem to be.

 

It sounds confusing to me.

Struggle may not help a rock

Spirit tells me that struggle can never help us to become

Anything that we have no potential to become.

 

But, a rock may never know that it has no potential to

Become a tree until it tries again and again,

Without success.

 

However, the rock may discover that it does have potential

To become what it now is, a rock.

 

People are not rocks.

 

What are they?

 

They, we are living forms of intelligent energy.

 

And rocks are not?

 

Perhaps they are, but people have potential.

 

Yes.

 

What does that mean?

 

More struggle might help you.

 

 

 

Uniqueness is a Temporary Condition

Spirit tells me that I am unique but not to worry.

This is only a temporary condition. It was not

Designed to last.

 

We are each unique, but only until we share our

Special uniqueness.

 

Some egos expand in a socially unhealthy way, by

Bloating instead of transcending what they are.

 

How to transcend what I am?

 

What are you.

 

A woman.

 

Become a human.
