Spirit tells me that a new story must be told about our inner reality, an inner world of Spirit wherein all Life is eager to assist and share in the creation of our future, and to teach us how to care for each other, everyone, and everything we care for.
We are each citizens of this world, He tells me. We each blend our unique energies together into one. We are serving each other, in one way or another
Oneness is a core principle of Life.
Spirit asks me to try to see Life through the eyes of a mystic.
How does a mystic see Life?
As a mystery to be deeply respected, cherished, and served.
How to serve Life? What is Life?
All that is.
Then, how is it possible to serve all that is?
By serving yourself in such a way that expresses, if only to yourself, your awareness of oneness to everyone and everything else.
How to explain that to anyone?
To even attempt to explain it is to deny the reality.
Those who understand …
Spirit tells me that relationships serve to provide us with a sense of
Connectedness, whether the connectedness is real or imagined.
What kind of relationships are we talking about?
Intimate, personal but not intimate, casual, neighbourly, professional,
Physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, whatever, or a combination
Of some of the above.
Think about it? He asks me. How? What? and whom do I relate to? and
In what way?
Also, He adds, bear in mind that not everything or everyone I send my
Vibrating energy waves to, by choice or otherwise, is tuned into
Receiving them, or would care to tune in, if they were not now.
What made me think that relationships were less complicated than that?
A simple outlook on the outer world.
Are relationships with the inner world less complicated?
Spirit tells me that I can only serve Life by serving myself, and
I can only serve myself by serving Life. It’s as simple as that.
How can I know when and if I am serving myself or Life?
It’s one and the same.
And if I’m helping a neighbour?
Your neighbour is Life.
But, there are some neighbours I would rather not serve at all.
Then you have a problem.
Spirit tells me that I am not as I once was, but I have
Always had the potential to become as I now am.
There is no end, He adds; I have and I am potential
To become more, to do more, to serve Life more than
I can now possibly imagine.
And, so it is with everyone.
Spirit tells me that denial and rejection serve us well,
While they serve us at all. However, inevitably and
Unavoidably, acceptance of reality wins the game.
Whether or not we eagerly strive toward enlightenment,
Awareness, or a simple acceptance of Life as it is, is a
Personal choice and expresses our Individual style, or
Coping skills – our way of playing the game of Life.
Spirit tells me that
All that we can do may never
Be enough to achieve what
We might have achieved if
We could do more, but that
All that we can do is
All that we can do, and
We will do all that we can
To serve Life by caring for
Ourselves and our community,
As if such caring was
A sacred duty, and
