A powerful sense of responsibility

Spirit tells me that the purpose of His teaching is to encourage

The study and practice of an increasingly clearer understanding of

Our interconnectedness to all forms of life, human and otherwise,

And of our personal responsibility to care for and protect, not only

Our own unique individual life, but also that of the countless,

Equally unique life forms that we share our world with.

 

How?

 

By becoming intentionally aware of how we live and the negative

Affect that may have on others.

 

That would require a powerful sense of responsibility.

 

Not would; it does.

 

Is it possible?

 

Yes.

 

How?

 

One step at a time.

 

And the first step is intention?

 

Yes.

 

 

 

Embedded within a pattern of Existence

Spirit tells me that we are, each and every one of us,

Embedded within a pattern of existence that is also

Embedded within even more expanded patterns.

 

I protest that such a reality may exist and probably does,

For I can visualize such a concept, and then my mind

Blurs the image, or does the image blur my mind?

 

It’s too deep for me, and my Spirit Teacher seems to

Sigh at my simplicity.

 

I want to live in the here and now, even knowing that

They do not exist except in the here and now and,

Even then, with little or no stability.

 

What about your desire to expand your awareness and

Understanding?

 

What about them?

 

Can they expand in your so-called here and now?

 

Perhaps I have a problem there, or here, but how

To bridge the gap between the two perspectives?

 

There is no gap and no need for a bridge.

 

Then what?

 

Simply release your hold, your identification with

Your so-called but non-existent here and now.

The fog will slowly lift and the way will become clear.
