Spirit tells me that, to the extent that we each influence another,
To that extent we are consuming or being consumed into
The essence of the other. Some call this process bonding.
This is, He tells me, a Universal Law, wherein all separated
Aspects of life return to again become one.
That may be so, in the long term, but how does knowing that
Affect my life here and now?
Have I influenced your thinking?
Very much so.
Then, are we bonding?
Yes, I hope so, but I would resist being consumed.
Spirit tells me that, as I care for the plants (He seems to
Disapprove of my calling them my plants) on my patio or
In my little back garden, they also care for me, and,
Even during Winter, they, as I do, require care.
However, we each may require more care or a
Different type of care during different seasons of
Our lives, as do different people we know and
Care about, in a personal way.
These special plants and people (for they are special, if
Only to us) seem to need what we alone can give them,
Our love, unconditionally.
We share a personal, interdependent relationship;
A bonding of emotion and thought, of
Pleasure and responsibility.
