The Essence of Form is Life

Spirit tells me that the purpose of form is to express essence, and the

Essence of all or any form is Life.

 

Conscious awareness allows humans and all other beings to choose

How they express their individual essence, which, of course, is not

All that individual.

 

But, if how I choose to live my life expresses my essence, and others

Express their essence by how they live, and if we all seem to live in

Ways that are unlike those of each other, then what does this say

About life?

 

It simply describes Life as dynamic, variable, and highly unpredictable.

Practice or Habit

Spirit tells me that

Practice can result in

The development of

Physical, intellectual, emotional and, or

Spiritual patterns of behaviour, but that

Habits can also result in

The development of physical,

Intellectual, emotional, and, or

Spiritual patterns of behaviour.

 

The difference between

Practice and habit is that

Practice requires intent to

Continuously develop

 Desired patterns of

Thinking, feeling, behaving and being.

While habits can develop

Through the lack of intent and

Conscious self-control.

All choices are based on outcome expectations

Spirit tells me that

We make choices based on

Outcome expectations and

A cost-benefit analysis,

When we are conscious of

The choices we make.

 

When our choices are

Based on habit,

Even these habitual choices

Have to have had

A beginning, conscious choice

That seemed to have had

Satisfied us, more or less,

At the time.

At least enough for us

To choose that same behaviour

Again and again, until, perhaps

We forgot that

In the beginning,

It was a choice,

Not intended to

Necessarily apply to

Future situations,

And to replace the need

To choose according to

Particular situations.

 

As conscious shoppers know,

One size of shoe does not

Fit all feet.
