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.

Apples are apples, whatever colour

Spirit tells me that

Apples are apples

Whatever colour

They may be, and,

If a few yellow apples are

Accepted into a collection of

Green or red apples, then

Their colour is not changed by

Their acceptance into

The group.

Yellow is yellow,

Green is green,

Red is red, and,

Yes, apples are apples.

They can, if they will to,

Harmonize with each other

Without losing

Their unique essence.

 

I don’t know

Spirit is into interrogation, again, or so it seems.

Who am I? What am I? And, what is ego?

To all three questions, my answer is the same.

I don’t know. But, two can play that game.

I ask Him, You tell me, first, if you can,

Who are you? What are you? and

What is the story about ego?

Who is an individual, He tells me.

I suspected as much.

What is necessarily form, or

Consisting of form.

Again, that agrees with my understanding.

Spirit beings exist, He tells me,

Whether or not they are visible

To the human eye.

Spirit beings can, with permission

(from whom?), materialize

In animal, human, vegetable, or,

Perhaps, in mineral form,

For their own reasons, or

As directed (by whom?).

Now, we get to ego.

Yes, Spirit begins, acknowledging

my understanding,

The human ego is not

in any real way disconnected

From the group ego, which

Is not disconnected from

An ever-more-inclusive mind.

Every area on planet Earth has

Both a local identity and,

at the same time,

a location within planet Earth.

No real separation exists.
