Limitless Potential

Spirit tells me that limitless potential is all that is,

was, or ever will be.

 

What does that mean in terms of those of us

who live in a very material and physical world?

 

It means that your so-called world is a temporary

experience.

 

The world as an experience?

 

Your world as an experience.

 

I am experiencing a personal world?

 

Yes.

 

How?

 

How what?

 

How can I experience a personal world?

 

By creating one.

 

Consciously?

 

More or less.

 

Then, everyone else creates and experiences

their own personal world?

 

Yes.

 

Then, how do all of our personal worlds

merge together?

 

They cannot.

 

But, we co-exist on or in one material world.

 

Do you?

 

What does that mean?

 

When or while we each create and experience

our separate existence from others, then

we each see the same reality from a personal

perspective.

 

Example?

 

One group may fight to defend a perceived claim

to land that the inhabitants of that land fight

to defend as their homeland. Then, each group

justifies their own action and condemns that

of the other.

 

You’re going to tell me that individuals think

and behave in the same way as groups?

 

No.

 

Then, what?

 

Groups are individuals who think and behave

as individuals, only collectively.

 

Then, the way we see the group world we each

create individually can only be changed

by individuals?

 

Yes.

 

How?

 

We need to learn to accept that others may not

experience the same thoughts as we do.

 

What about emotions?

 

What about them?

 

Do we not also experience different emotions?

 

No.

 

Then, emotions are more limited than thoughts?

 

Yes. Emotions have a more limited variety

than thoughts, but their depth is endless.

 

So, thoughts have an endless creative potential

but emotions possess a limitless depth of

expression?

 

Yes.

How to Live in Such a World

Spirit tells me that when anything moves, and something
is always moving, then everything moves.
It is a law of Life

Life moves in every imaginable way, and also in ways
that human imagination is yet to discover.

Life moves and everything is life.

Does this refer to energy systems or forms?

All forms contain energy systems.

And all energy systems …

Yes. There is nothing in life without form, or
without potential form.

What spiritual lesson is involved in all of this?

All of this?

Within the discussion of life as energy.

What form does spirituality take?

Thoughts, emotions, and actions?

In what order?

Emotions, thoughts, and then actions?

To what end?

For what purpose?

Yes.

If everything moves …

And it does.

Then our choices would be variables?

No.

Then, what?

Everything is a variable except Life.

Then, how to live in such a world?

Yes.

How?

Yes.

Beneath The Surface of Doing and Thinking

Spirit asks me if I am conscious.

Of what?

Of anything.

I’m conscious of being asked if I’m conscious.

That’s not the same thing.

The same thing as what?

Of being conscious.

As in being aware?

Of what?

Then, to be conscious is to be aware?

Of what?

Of whatever.

Of whatever what?

Of whatever is happening that I’m conscious or aware of.

Yes.

What does that mean?

It means that you use two words to mean the same thing.

Why not?

When you use awareness or consciousness, why do you
give awareness a higher social status position
in your spiritual reading, writing, and thinking?

Perhaps they don’t mean exactly the same thing as
each other.

In what way?

You would know …

Yes, but do you?

I think so.

So?

Consciousness is possession of at least some capacity
to be aware of and understand what is happening
around me, while awareness is intentionally
conscious of what is happening, and attempting to
understand why my dear Spirit Teacher has chosen
to focus my attention on the difference or
differences between the meanings of consciousness
and awareness.

Do you think I have a purpose?

I know you have a purpose.

How do you know?

You always have a purpose.

Yes, but do you?

Is it possible to do or think about anything without
a purpose for doing so?

Why just do or think?

Without including emotions?

Yes.

I don’t know. Perhaps they’re somewhere beneath
the surface of everything we do or think.

Yes.

Simplicity is Where Thinking Begins

Spirit tells me that Simplicity has its place
but it should not be as a quality of thought.

Is that a personal comment?

Yes.

Why do you not scold my simplicity of emotion?

What have your emotions to do with your thinking?

Is it possible to have deep thoughts and simple
emotions?

What have emotions to do with thinking?

You’re luring me into an intellectual trap.

Yes.

Then, pleas explain.

What?

The relationship between thought and emotion

They interact with each other.

As cause and effect?

Which would be cause?

Emotion.

No.

If thought does not act on emotion, then …

But, thought does act on emotion.

Then why do you say emotion does not
cause thought.

Because it isn’t necessarily so.

Then, interact in this case means …

Mutual influence.

How do they influence each other?

Some of us develop the capacity
to think rationally, while still
maintaining uncomplicated emotions.

Then you approve of simple emotions?

There are no other kind.

A controlling interest

Spirit Shares Gems of Wisdom

Spirit asks me, what is our relationship? That puzzles me, as I believe it is as a student and teacher – a one-to-one, as a private tutor, as people with money might purchase.

I am not for sale, He tells me, which is just as well, since I have no money. Perhaps I could never have as much as it might take to offer what He is worth, to me.

But, student and teacher is only part of what our relationship is all about and so I must answer, I don’t know, yet.

Can we pretend, He then asks, to be what we know we are and can we relate to each other as we do, or seem to?

Then Spirit responds to my confused thoughts and emotions with, “Yes, I seem to have a controlling interest in your life and I do, for now.”

The Path is The Only Game in Town

Spirit tells me that we each follow our own Path of Enlightenment

And that The Path is the only game in town.

 

Travel along the path requires thoughts and emotions working

Together in more or less harmony, to create our unique personality.

 

The path of enlightenment does not have a geographical location

As a goal. Instead, it is a personal, spiritual journey or process

To refine the quality of our thoughts and emotions, and the

Actions that express them.

 

Oneness with viariable attributes

Spirit tells me that spirituality is a natural capacity

To expand a mystical awareness and understanding

Of life that develops compassion for others.

 

We can, if we will to, increasingly recognize

Ourselves in others, and others in ourselves,

Without which, He claims, compassion is not

Possible.

 

There is no essential difference between anyone.

We could never, He tells me, recognize love or

Hostility in others, if we were incapable of

Experiencing, to a greater or lesser degree,

Perhaps, the emotions that we witness.

 

In essence, there is oneness with variable attributes.

 

My socially conditioned thoughts and emotions

When I insist to Spirit that I am what I am and I need

What I need, then He, with a confidence that I very

Much envy, tells me that my more or less loosely

Organized system of thoughts and emotions is a

Conditioned one.

 

Who conditioned me?

 

You did, with help, of course.

 

Why? and for what purpose?

 

To conform to a static social order that never existed.

 

Why would I do that?

 

God only knows, but hopes you will do yourself and

Everyone else the favour of getting to know who and

What you really are.

 

 

 

Personality is not Physical

Spirit tells me that a person, any person

can be described according to

physical features, but, that

personality cannot be

so described.

Personality is a dynamic interaction of

intellect and emotion, fluctuating in

variable quantities and strengths of

particular qualities in, or during,

different situations, and

personality is a blend of

more or less consistent

thought, emotional, and

behavioral patterns.

 

But, Spirit tells me,

an individual’s behaviour can

reflect thoughts and emotions, or

it can be used as a mask,

to protect or hide them,

not necessarily for the purpose of

deceit, but to separate

shared and private worlds.

We choose what we care to share.
