Spirit asks me to try to see Life through the eyes of a mystic.
How does a mystic see Life?
As a mystery to be deeply respected, cherished, and served.
How to serve Life? What is Life?
All that is.
Then, how is it possible to serve all that is?
By serving yourself in such a way that expresses, if only to yourself, your awareness of oneness to everyone and everything else.
How to explain that to anyone?
To even attempt to explain it is to deny the reality.
Those who understand …
I wanted to write about Life as a Mystic, Life as a Channel, Life as a Student, a life-long student to a Spirit Teacher who shares with me so very much wisdom and yet, My spirit teacher seems to have unresolved psychological issues of his own.
Some of Spirit’s methods of teaching leave much to be desired, such as when He seems to se me up to experience stressful situations, followed by an almost gentle explanation of how I handled, the stress, or rather, didn’t handle it very well at all, using a habitual response that has proven unproductive.
The problem, or rather, my problem (not His) is due to reacting instead of responding to challenging situations.
Response, he calmly lectures me, requires contemplation of choices before acting on the situation or challenge.
So, where is He before I mess up with my inadequate response?
When He can surely see what is likely to happen, why not nudge me with a little insight, before, instead of after the fact. That’s why we have detour signs, to prevent unpleasant situations.
Perhaps they don’t teach prevention in Spirit.
