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.

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.

Spirituality’s Seductive Nature

It was not love at first sight, at least not in a physical sense, since I

Have not yet developed the capacity to visualize that area wherein

Form and essence merge in ever-finer elements of matter.

 

But, human and spirit qualities seem to be, in many ways,

More close than similar. And, so would be the potentially

Seductive nature of student and teacher attraction.

 

When I ask Spirit to explain why mutual attraction to

Spiritual values could …

 

Be corrupted? The corruption, or danger of such, is in

My own mind, or it isn’t.

 

He then reminds me of the countless gurus I have followed

Throughout many lifetimes, or so it seems, with each one

Falling from grace, in my mind.

 

They didn’t fall; they seemed to crash. Confucius might calmly

Comment, “No blame”, but I was, each and every time,

Devastated and confused. I was sure, beyond a doubt, again,

Again, and yet again that I had discovered a philosophy

To live by that explained everything, until it didn’t.

 

Will I meet the same fate?

 

How can I know..?

 

Until or unless it happens?

 

Yes, and perhaps that scares me.

 

Why? When it is time to move on to another teacher, we must,

Or stagnate.

 

My earlier teachers belonged to recorded history…

 

So, were less personally a part of your life?

 

Yes.

 

 

 

Relationship is Social Connective Tissue

Spirit tells me that

Social connective tissue

Serves the same general

Purpose as physical, biological

Connective tissue, within a human

Or animal body. How?

 

It allows individuals, groups of

Individuals, and groups of groups

Of individuals to live as

One life form, while seeming

To live separate existences,

Each possessing, possibly

Different ways and means of

Achieving, or attempting to achieve

A Universal goal of health

And happiness.

 

Spirit then tells me, as if

I could not figure it out

For myself, that Our way is

Not for everyone.

 

We each must learn from

Experience, what lifestyle is

For us and then to develop it,

One step at a time.

 

 

Transcending the Physical

Spirit tells me that

Transcending the physical does not

Require rejecting or neglecting

The physical aspects of our life.

 

Transcendence must necessarily

Include and expand from

The inside and then move

Beyond the boundaries of

Our physical and mental reality.

 

We are physical beings. We are also

Emotional, intellectual and

.Spiritual beings, all in one and,

All in one from a oneness

Perspective.

 

To neglect or abuse any one aspect

Of our being, is to neglect or abuse

Our being.

 

If we are to be neglected

And/or abused then let it be

By others, not by ourselves.
