A dynamic relationship

Spirit tells me that He and I are as separate assortments of
energy systems, each containing the same energies as the other
but in different strengths and qualities.

We must learn to harmonize with each other, not to homogenize
our particular unique mix of strengths and weaknesses.

We must learn from the concept of Yin and Yang, who share
a dynamic relationship without denying or seeking to
diminish the intrinsic value of the other.

This is our chosen way of life, and perhaps some day
it will be so with everyone.

Pity is Arrogance

Spirit tells me that to tolerate ignorance and other base qualities

In oneself, or in others, is disrespectful of those others and oneself.

 

It is also counter-productive and slows progress, and so, is also

Disrespectful of our future.

 

Then how to respond?

 

Compassion is the answer and is the only way to achieve

Peace of mind. Pity is arrogance pretending to be

Justifiably superior.

 

If I pity the wretched conditions of others, then I am not

One of them, and, He claims, to be with them and not of them

Is impossible.
