Awareness isn’t designed to be Appealing

Spirit tells me that living a spiritual life in the so-called real world

Is the same as living a not-so-spiritual life except for awareness of

Choosing how I live the way I do, and how my way of living

Affects my personal health and happiness, and also that of

Everyone else.

 

That’s pretty heavy stuff.

 

What is pretty heavy stuff?

 

Laying a guilt trip on me by suggesting …

 

I’m not suggesting. Everything we do affects everyone and

Everything else.

 

If I am more responsible for others than they are for me,

Just because I’m aware of my responsibility and they may

Not be, then how appealing can awareness be?

 

Awareness isn’t designed to be appealing.

 

Karma Rules

Spirit tells me that so-called free will is often misunderstood.

 

Some people claim the right to do whatever they choose to,

Regardless of how their choices may negatively affect

The lives of others, or our natural environment.

 

They have obviously failed to read the fine print that

Holds them responsible for consequences.

 

All Universal Laws, He tells me, are interconnected –

A package deal, with no options or exceptions, and

Karma rules.

 

Not all apples are alike

Spirit tells me that I must learn to judge people as I would

Fruit at a market. Not all apples are alike.

 

So it is with people. We do not choose produce according

To how we would like it to be, but by how it seems to be,

Now. Quality is more or less self-evident.

 

We may be more or less than we once were, and we may

Become more or less than what we now are, in whatever

Aspect of our being.

 

But, for now we are as we are, or seem to be. So it is

With everyone.

 

Those who have eyes to see are, at least to some extent,

Responsible for what they see, and, for how they respond

To what they see. It’s as simple as that.
