Awareness is not an End in Itself

Spirit tells me, as if to console my aching heart,
that letting go was never easy
for anyone who ever felt they needed to be
connected to whatever or whomever, until
there didn’t seem to be an acceptable alternative.

The interconnecting energy relaxes on its own,
or will if we will let it.

It didn’t seem to need permission.

We need to learn to allow ourselves to feel
connected as long as it seems to make sense
to be so, and then, the bonds of relationship
relax, gently or otherwise, to facilitate
adaptation to newly developed awareness.

Close relationships will always be close,
unless …

Unless what?

Unless they seem …

To become more or less close?

Yes. Are you aware that you are aware of
a change in certain relationships?

Yes, and yet not as an observer of
outside events.

Yes. We can become increasing aware of
our inner feelings and rationalize
about them without denying them.

Yes, and self-awareness seems to be
non-judgmental.

Yes. It accepts that what is, is,
for whatever reason.

So, where do we go from here?

From where?

From accepting that we feel whatever
strength of whatever emotion about
whatever situation or relationship.

Then it’s time to think and rationalize
about where to go from here.

Feeling has served its purpose?

Yes. Now it’s time to choose
how to act on our awareness.

Then, awareness is not an end it itself?

Never. The price of awareness is responsibility
for whatever response we choose in whatever
situation.

Greater awareness contains the ego self.

Spirit tells me that whatever we are, were, or yet will be,

We are, were, and will always be whatever, with and

Within everything else that is.

 

Everything and everyone  is more than connected to everything else.

Everything and everyone is interconnected. We each are

Both a part of and part of it all.

 

Each piece in a puzzle has a unique shape, unless some other

Piece or pieces share that feature of its otherwise uniqueness.

However, no other piece fits with meaning into the same space

Within the puzzle..

 

There is a reason for each puzzle piece, and for

Each and every person to be exactly as and

Where we are. This reason goes far beyond

Individuality.

 

The relationship between each piece of a puzzle and

The puzzle itself, explains Spirit, is as

The relationship between ego self and

Greater awareness.
