Studying with Spirit

There are times when studying with my Spirit Teacher is less than a

Pleasure. There seems to be such a deep and wide gulf between

The awesome wisdom He would share with me and my shallow

Capacity to absorb it that I must protest.

 

What do You expect from me? I’m not that bright. Perhaps you want

More than I could ever give.

 

We know more than you what you are potentially capable of being,

Doing, and giving, and We more than reasonably expect. We know

What we can and what we cannot expect from you or anyone else.

Relationships as learning experiences

Spirit tells me that every relationship is a learning experience

In which each participant is both teaching and learning from

The relationship itself and from every participant, inclding

Oneself.

 

Deep or shallow? How far do we dare to go? To see deeply

Is to go deeply into the possible motives and intentions of

The other, or others, and to consider whether they are

Different from or similar to our own.

 

How far will each relationship take us if we allow, or invite it?

How will we change and how will the other, or others change?

And is it worth the effort, or risk?

 

All relationships either stimulate or drain our energy,

As well as affecting other resources, precious or otherwise.

 

Teacher, has our relationship been a learning experience for you?

 

Yes, it has taught me patience.

 

 

 

Every Relationship is a Learning Experience

Spirit tells me that

Every relationship is a learning experience

In which each participant is both

Teaching and learning something.

 

Deep or shallow, Long term or

Short term. how far will

Each particular relationship

Take us, if we allow or

Invite it, to?.

 

How does or will each relationship

Change us and how will we

Change the other or others?

 

Is it, or will it be worth the effort

If we are aware and intend

To change and/or be changed?

 

Any relationship either stimulates or

Drains our energy and

Other resources, precious or

Otherwise.

 

Where will each relationship

Take us, and how can we know

Until…..?
