Spirit tells me that there are some people in my life
whom I would best serve by stepping away from.
Life, He tells me is about relationships: to oneself,
to loved ones, to community, to neighbours, to
fellow workers, to our environment, and to Life itself.
We are each as living pieces of a cosmic puzzle and
we each need to discover where and near whom we fit
most comfortably and appropriately.
Stepping away from a close association with those
with whom you do not share values with allows them
to also possibly discover where they belong.
At this time, neither of you are where you belong.
You both are holding each other back from
meaningful spiritual development.
Spirit tells me to release my hold on the heavy but
Seductive energies of material values. For me, that
Position is neither desirable nor possible.
I tell Spirit that material comforts surely express
Spiritual values of beauty and pleasure, and that
Perhaps we each must find our own comfort zone
Where our own, individual spiritual and material
Values co-exist in harmony with each other,
Each expressing the other.
Yes, He agrees, as if He expected my response and
Intended to provoke it.
Perhaps, He suggests, I will learn to relax my hold
Without releasing it. Over-simplicity, for the sake of
Simplicity, He tells me, is a trap of false pride.
The middle way is a personal way and, as such is
A different path for every individual.
