Worlds Within Worlds of Rules

Spirit tells me that happiness is not
different things to different people,
as some might believe it to be.

Happiness is a feeling of contentment
that harmonizes both intellect and
emotion.

Can it last?

Nothing lasts.

But, is it a thing?

What?

Happiness.

What else could it be?

A state of mind.

States and minds are things.

But, people seek happiness.

Where? How?

Wherever and however they seem to think
it might be found.

It can never be found.

Then, is it possible to become happy
or contented.

Yes.

How?

Develop a satisfied mind.

How?

Live by rules of your own choosing.

How to know if I am choosing
the rules I live by?

Who else could choose them?

Most social rules were created before
I was born.

So what?

I didn’t choose them.

Do you live by them?

Some of them.

Why only some?

Some are required.

Why?

They are designed to create order where
there might otherwise be chaos.

Such as?

Traffic laws.

Yes.

What does that mean?

Traffic laws are a form of general rules
designed to benefit all members of specific
societies.

What rules would benefit individuals?

Whatever would benefit a group can only be
effective if it is followed by individuals
within the group.

So, the personal and the general are as one?

Yes and no.

How so?

Group rules apply to everyone to whom
they apply.

And personal rules?

Personally chosen rules are selected from
general rules.

Worlds within worlds of rules?

Yes. Our personal rules should be chosen
above and beyond those we accept.

Love is as a Pressure Gradient

Spirit tells me that love can never be a one-way Street.

It is as a pressure gradient of energy exchange.

 

What energy is exchanged for what?

 

Each party to the exchange has something to give.

 

What?

 

Something the other party values.

 

What?

 

Needs fulfillment.

 

Personal or general?

 

Both.

 

The Rules of Life

Spirit tells me that the rules of Life are

Not nearly as simple as

Some would have us believe.

 

The Golden Rule that we learned

As children – to do unto others as

We would have them do unto us

Is too general to easily apply in

Most specific situations we

Experience as adults.

 

A wide range of responses

Need to be learned in order to

Appropriately respond to

The wide range of situations we

Experience in daily life.

 

I ask Spirit if there is

A mathematical formula to

Determine an ideal response

In any given situation.

 

Spirit tells me that

My personal response to any

Situation must necessarily

Express the quality of

My self-awareness.

 

I understand that to suggest

There is no ideal response.

Spirit’s response: Whatever works.

Energy flows or it does not.

And, it does.
