As Essence is to Form

Spirit tells me that we are to each other as essence is to form, and

as such, we are each necessarily incomplete without the other.

 

Essence, He explains, can only express itself within the constraints

That form provides, or, as some seem to think, imposes.

 

Form contains and protects essence, providing a safe,

Though limited space within which it is free to express

Itself.

 

As your spirit teacher, I express my truth, which is my essence,

Through you, though not exclusively through you. But, an even

More highly developed energy may express His or Her essence

Through me.

 

Together we each and all contain and express one essence,

In our own way, which we have developed by blending

Together ideas and habits absorbed into our consciousness

From many sources.

 

In essence, He concludes, essence and form are one.

Thinking is a game

Spirit tells me that thinking is a game and perhaps He’s right.

I somehow need to struggle with ideas and Spirit provides me

(bless His soul) with a seemingly endless supply of these.

 

Sometimes I think I know the what and why of a particular

Mental challenge He slips into my mind, but, before I can

Take hold of the how, it slips away, as my inner resources

Suddenly collapse, as a balloon does, when filled to

Beyond capacity with hot air.

 

Spirit smiles at my distress and suggests that I

Accept that there are games in this world, and

Beyond, that are beyond me, at least for now.

I should be able to recognize games that I

Cannot yet win.

 

Stop. He spoke of this world and beyond. Now I challenge Him.

How can there be a beyond if there is only one world?

 

There is and yet there will always be a beyond.

 

As in Buzz Lightyear’s “to infinity and beyond”? (Buzz is a

Toy Story character).

 

Yes and no.

 

How?

 

Our world expands to infinity, and expanding awareness is

Our mode of travel.
