To serve only oneself is impossible.

Spirit shares words of wisdom.

Spirit tells me that it’s impossible to serve only oneself.
We are, each and every one, too interconnected for that
to be possible.

What if I catch my own fish, grow my own vegies and fruit,
and drink water from my own well?

None of that would be available to serve your needs
if others had consumed, destroyed, or contaminated
what you would otherwise enjoy.

Why would anyone do that?

Why would they not?

It would be self-destructive.

Yes.

Your story is my story

Spirit tells me that our personal stories must necessarily be incomplete and less than real.

“How can my life story be less than real?”

“Who experienced it?”

“I did.”

“And who recorded it?”

“I did.”

“How?”

“Through memories. How else?”

“Someone might have told you your story when you were too young to be aware of how true it was.”

“If so, that was then.”

“Your story can never be then. Life stories are never then and now, unless there are two or more versions of the same story, and there always are.”

“Then how can we know our own story?”

“It isn’t possible. We’re living interconnected life stories.”

“Then your story and mine may be the same story?”

“Yes, from different perspectives.”

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.

The struggle goes on, and on

My Spirit Guru is teaching me

How to live in such a way as to

serve Life while serving myself

and others.

 

 

I feel both blessed and chosen, and yet

I also feel almost certain that

I have gone beyond my potential,

As well as my comfort zone,

And still there is no end in sight.

 

It is of no real consolation to me

When Spirit assures me that

There is no end.

 

Perhaps easy was never promised, but

I had a different idea of what this path

To enlightenment would be to travel.

 

A certain energy vibration impels me on.

It is as if my own energy is becoming

More and more interconnected with

An energy beyond my control.

 

Perhaps the truth is that, even if

I tried, I would not be able to quit, now.

And yet the struggle goes on.

and on.

 

Spirit tells me that struggle is

Necessary but, that’s not why

I do it, for, if the truth were told,

Much of my struggle seems to be

Not to move forward, but rather

To resist doing so.

 

I am not the person I was, when it

All began, and I seem to know that

I am not the person I will become,

And yet, at the same time, I am

And have always  been, and will

Always be me.
