Relationships and Furniture

Spirit tells me that relationships are not
usually as solid as is furniture, and
cannot, or should not be measured in the
same way, relative to each other or to
oneself.

Relationships and furniture?

Relationships as furniture.

As in possessions?

Yes.

Okay.

What does that mean?

I can see furniture …

Yes.

You interrupted …

You had completed a thought, or at least
had completed expressing a thought.

I can see furniture.

Yes, but you cannot see relationships
in the same way, at least not until
you learn to see in a different way
with a different sense.

Not with physical eyes?

Not with physical eyes alone.

Then, physical sense are an outer form?

They are more than form. They are as
radar in that they pick up signals.

And inner senses decode these signals?

Yes.

Transformation?

No.

Then what?

Translating and transcending. However,
there are potentially unlimited degrees
of understanding the messages our
outer senses pick up.

All that glitters …

Is not gold.

The lesson?

Accept the messages that you feel
seem real, while they do.

And then let them go when a deeper
awareness suggests …

Yes.

Coming in Seventh

Spirit tells me that coming in Seventh is usually

Out of the limelight. Medals of Gold, Silver, and

Bronze have already been won. Even glory

May not be awarded to a Seventh place contestant.

 

So, He asks me, Why do we strive to do and to be

All that we can do and be, when we suspect that

There are those who can and will, or might do

Much better?

 

Because we are not contestants and because we must

Do and be what we can, for whatever reason?

 

Yes, and more. We seem to know that we contribute to

The glory of those who win it. We help them do and be

Better than they might otherwise do and be, simply

Because they know we are close behind them.
