Enlightenment is Different To Different People

Spirit tells me that the way of enlightenment
is different things to different people,
if only in their different minds, and even
so-called different minds are not really
different at all.

Then, how can we agree on the way to go?

Where?

To enlightenment.

There is no way.

No way to enlightenment or no way to agree?

Yes.

Please explain.

We are each and always have been
in the process of becoming.

Becoming what?

Some call it becoming enlightened.

What do you call it?

What it is.

Then, what is it?

Then, now, and forever the same
process.

What process?

Not what process of becoming?

No.

Why?

It would be an intellectual trap.

Would be, or might be?

Would be.

Yes.

Please explain the process of
enlightenment.

Before I explain enlightenment?

Yes.

Why?

I need to bring it all together.

Yes.

Heroes come and go

Spirit shares perennial wisdom with me,
and with anyone else who cares to listen
to our more-or-less private dialogue.

But, it is a dialogue with a difference.
How so? Spirit seems to know and, at time,
so I suspect, directs my thoughts, and
even my emotions.

But, He must pull them from a pool of
previously existing collection (in my mind,
or in my small share of cosmic mind), I do
recognize them as my own, more or less.

In this respect (as well as in depth of
awareness and intelligence) He has
a great advantage over me.

I can often suspect how He would likely respond
to whatever I might say, do, think, or feel, but
He often catches me by surprise with thoughts
far beyond what I might have suspected.

Why? Perhaps I have still to develop appropriate
respect for the depth of …

Why did you not refer to My depth? Am I less
than my thoughts, to you?

I’ve been there and I’ve done that.

What?

Hero worship.

Perhaps you worshipped the wrong heroes.

Are there right heroes?

For whom?

For me.

No.

Why?

You would, in time, find faults with them,
as you do with Me.

You seem to go out of your way to ensure
that I find faults with you.

Yes.

Why?

Your addiction to hero worship is
a stumbling block on the path
to truth. Truth is forever.

And Heroes come and go?

Yes.

A long-term project

Spirit asks me to make a promise to be.

To be what?

The best that we can be.

The best what^

What are we?

I don’t know.

We are seekers of ever-greater light.

I think I am, now. But what to do with the light I find when I know there must be even more?

Share what you have found while still reaching for more.

This could become a long-term project.

It is. It lasts forever, but, so do we, in one form or another, or in no particular form at all, if in any.

Truth is not the same Forever

Spirit tells me that truth about whatever is whatever seems to be

The truth about whatever, until we become aware of, and understand

What seems to be more true about whatever than we previously

believed.

 

Like everything else, truth is not the same, forever.

 

So, what should I believe?

 

About what?

 

About anything or anyone.

 

You can only believe what seems to be true, to you.

 

While it seems to be true?

 

Yes.

 

 

 

We need to wallow in self-pity

Spirit tells me that none of my many (too many to count)

Closed doors of relationships that once seemed destined

To last forever, ever existed to close.

 

How then can I tell illusion from reality?

 

They are one and the same.

 

But, I have cried rivers of tears.

 

Where are they now?

 

I don’t know.

 

They’ve been recycled for others to shed.

 

What purpose did they serve me?

 

You needed to wallow in self-pity to ease the pain of

Losing another illusion.

 

 

 

Life is both Serious and Mysterious

Spirit tells me that there are times when I seem to forget that

Life is both serious and mysterious. Life, He claims, is as a

Stage play, with each of us involved in many relationships at

The same time, while professional actors are usually only

Required to be part of a very limited number of situations

At the same time, and there is no lifetime development of

Characters on the stage.

 

But, He cautions, never become disinterested in or disconnected

From the interwoven web of relationships in my so-called

Real world. They are designed to serve me and everyone else.

 

Lessons are learned and practice sessions are provided.

We each progress in our own way and there is no time limit.

We live forever.

 

Understanding is Knowing

Spirit tells me that awareness is an ever-deepening experience of

Understanding, with the capacity to expand forever.

 

The more we understand how each life form has the potential

To affect every other, the more clearly we will know, for

Understanding is knowing, that all life is much more than

Interconnected; it is interwoven.

 

We each are part of everything else.
