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.

Existence doesn’t depend on a belief system

 

Spirit tells me that His existence does not depend upon

My temporary belief system, or my seeming illusion that

We are separate in any real way.

 

Belief in an individual ego, He tells me, serves us well,

As long as and to the degree that it does. But,

The reality is, we are as separated from each other as

Individual neighbourhoods are separated from

The city that they are a part of..

 

Complexity within simplicity or

Spirit asks me to consider whether

Life is complexity within simplicity, or

Simplicity within complexity.

Then, almost before I can begin

To try to determine which,

Or if neither description of

Life is applicable, He

Asks me to visualize

The intricate web of Life and,

To ask myself where I am

Within that web, or if I am

Separate from that web. Am I

Within or part of the web.

Again, without waiting for

My doomed to be inadequate

Response, He tells me that

We are separate, but,

Only for as long as

We believe we are.

 

The Limits of Relationship

Spirit tells me that we can either be separate or merge.

But, I want both. Why can’t we have it both ways?

There are many more ways than one, He then tells me, to see, to think, to feel, and to hear. And, there are many more ways than one to do, to be, and to grow; to become. Every thing else is disposable, a means to an end, at best, or, a hindrance, unnecessary baggage, or a temporary pleasure that we can’t take with us, as it is. Even the pleasure or pan it brought into our being will, eventually, evaporate into nothingness.
