Messengers and Teachers

Spirit shares gems of wisdom with me. Why? I don’t know,
but I’m glad he does.

He tells me that I’m not the one who’s directing His
traffic, nor is He directing mine, except …

Except what?

Not what, but how and why? We each serve a higher
purpose than our own.

I’m free, He tells me, to choose to listen to Him
and the teachings that He would share with me,
or not to listen. He’s a messenger and the teachings
He shares with me, for whatever reason, are far
beyond a one-to-one personal correspondence. they are
also meant for whomever cares to hear them and to
consider their value. They were never, He repeats,
designed for me, alone.

Why me at all?

You seemed to be ready.

Can you be both a messenger and a teacher of the
messages you share with me?

Is a teacher not as a messenger to his or her
students?

Yes. I see. The teacher must first have received
the messages she or he now shares with students.

Yes.

We Share Our Life

Spirit tells me that we each share our life
with all who know us, to the depth that
they know us.

Or think they do?

No.

Please explain.

Much of what we think we know is no more
than programming from sources outside of
our own mind.

But, at least some of what we learn
from outside sources, such as teachers …

And so-called news reporters and
advertising?

Surely, nobody believes everything
she hears.

Is believing the same as knowing?

How can we know anything that we
don’t believe?

How can we believe anything that we
don’t know?

Then, believing is not knowing?

Yes. Knowing does not require believing.

But, believing requires thinking
that we know?

No.

Then, what?

We believe what we know that we do
not know, but trust that it is so.

We trust our outside source of information?

Yes.

But, information is not necessarily
knowledge?

Yes.

But, surely we must believe before we can
know.

Why?

It’s easier than simply accepting that
we do not know, yet.

Yes.

So, what*s the answer?

To what;?

The problem of not possibly knowing
everything and yet needing to believe
that we do know something.

Acceptance and intention.

Acceptance that we don’t know what we
don’t know but intention to learn
what we can and care to?

Yes.

We Each Know Everyone Else

Spirit tells me that there have always been
dedicated teachers of wisdom in every culture
since time began, who have shared their
understanding and awareness of how life
can be lived for the benefit of all.

But, there are surely many more ways than
one to live a life that benefits all,
if it was possible to know how the life
we live could harm anyone.

Awareness would teach you.

How to become aware?

Experience.

Experience of what?

Being harmed as a result of how others
live their lives.

It isn’t possible to know how all others
live their lives.

Why?

I don’t know all others.

Do you know yourself?

Yes, I think so.

Then you know everyone else.

I Ching Wisdom – Respect the visions of the timeless past

Spirit explains I Ching 52 – Mountain.

 

Mountain follows Thunder and will be followed by Gradual Progress.

 

As the seasons of our life each follow the one that came before it,

So it is with each new generation of Seekers of the Way. We cannot

Be, see, or do as any other previous one.

 

We each see and understand as no-one else, if we dare to see from

Where we alone are, while respecting the visions of the elders,

Mentors, and teachers from the timeless past.

 

Wow! And the message for me?

 

Yes.

Faith vs Ego as Illusion vs Illusion?

Spirit tells me that His name is Fellop, which, He explains, is not an

Exclusive and personal name, as that would suggest a false sense of

Self, such as some materialized beings seem to need to cling to.

 

Fellop is an abbreviation of Fellowship, which is a group of

Dedicated teachers who, because we are composed of

Less-dense matter than physical people, these seem to

Refer to us as spirits, invisibles, ghosts, imaginary, etc.

 

Our purpose is to help whomever we can to co-create a healthier,

More enjoyable, and more meaningful life.

 

It all sounds so noble that I am annoyed at myself for questioning

Why Spirit is sharing this information with me. My response

Seems so inappropriate and disrespectful.

 

He reads my mind but neither approves nor disapproves of

My thoughts. It doesn’t seem to concern Him at all.

 

You have a personal problem, He tells me; a conflict between

Faith and Doubt, when each is an illusion.

 

 

Different teachers for different seekers

Spirit tells me that there have always been Spiritual teachers

Who cared enough for their community to risk their lives

To share the wisdom that had been shared with them.

 

There have always been people who needed to understand

What life was all about and what purpose socially accepted

Rules served in their particular time and place.

 

How can we understand rules whose purpose has not been

Explained to us? Or does not seem to make sense?

 

Spirit tells me that leaders have always feared being

Questioned abut the purpose of rules they impose on

Their followers. The very nature of rules requires that

They are not an option and must be obeyed.

 

The problem arises, claims Spirit, when these rules

No longer serve their original purpose, the best interest

Of the community and, instead, serve, or seem to serve

The personal interests of those who enforce the rules.

 

Then a new teacher rises up out of mass discontentment

With old ways of thinking, to share a new way of living that

Requires new rules.

 

The old game then begins again. Young people insist upon

Change while the elderly remember that they too were once

Young and had listened in their youth, and followed a then

New teacher and new leaders with new ideas of new rules.

 

So, what is the solution?

 

To what?

 

To sharing new ideas of how to live.

 

There are no new ideas of how to live.

 

 

 

Letting Spirit use me for a glorious purpose

Spirit asks me to let him walk with me

and talk with me and teach me how

I can assist Him and other Spirit Teachers

To  bring out the best in everyone

We together connect with, one to one.

It isn’t, He tells me, just for me.

But, oh, do I get so much, in that,

How can He or His co-workers in Spirit

Teach anyone, anything, through me,

Without also teaching me,

In the process.

A win-win situation.
