Heroes come and go

Spirit shares perennial wisdom with me,
and with anyone else who cares to listen
to our more-or-less private dialogue.

But, it is a dialogue with a difference.
How so? Spirit seems to know and, at time,
so I suspect, directs my thoughts, and
even my emotions.

But, He must pull them from a pool of
previously existing collection (in my mind,
or in my small share of cosmic mind), I do
recognize them as my own, more or less.

In this respect (as well as in depth of
awareness and intelligence) He has
a great advantage over me.

I can often suspect how He would likely respond
to whatever I might say, do, think, or feel, but
He often catches me by surprise with thoughts
far beyond what I might have suspected.

Why? Perhaps I have still to develop appropriate
respect for the depth of …

Why did you not refer to My depth? Am I less
than my thoughts, to you?

I’ve been there and I’ve done that.

What?

Hero worship.

Perhaps you worshipped the wrong heroes.

Are there right heroes?

For whom?

For me.

No.

Why?

You would, in time, find faults with them,
as you do with Me.

You seem to go out of your way to ensure
that I find faults with you.

Yes.

Why?

Your addiction to hero worship is
a stumbling block on the path
to truth. Truth is forever.

And Heroes come and go?

Yes.

Might isn’t necessarily right

My spirit teacher asks me what is the difference between us.

 

I am physical and you are not.

 

What does it mean to be physical?

 

It means I am trapped in a physical body.

 

Is that all?

 

No. You seem to know and understand much more than I do, but

That might be due to the heavy energy of my physical existence

Limiting my awareness.

 

Awareness of what?

 

Awareness of all the information that would help me understand

What life is, what my destiny is, what my role, if any, is, and what

I have done to be stuck in the mud of human society.

 

Can you accept me as a teacher and guide?

 

Yes. I do.

 

Then why do you seem to struggle with accepting my teachings?

 

I respect you and your teachings, but if your opinions don’t seem

To make sense to me then I suspect that you are testing my

Intelligence.

 

So, you accept my teaching as superior, only when it seems so to you?

 

How else?

 

Yes.
