Who Is, or Are, Our Own Kind?

Spirit tells me that everyone resonates with everyone else
in a very personal style. Our individual energy systems
are magnetically attracted to other energy systems,
or they are not. But, no two relationships are or can be
identical.

We each are as a different person to every other person,
animal, or whatever we relate to in any way. Even within
families, each member relates in his or her unique way
to each other family member, pet, visitor, or friend,
as well as to strangers.

We may develop, and we cannot easily avoid doing so,
socially conditioned relationships to the world
we live in. However, this is an unnatural form of
a shared thought system. It does not change
our individual energy vibrations, except, perhaps,
to suppress them, at least to some degree.

Social conditioning does not, and cannot,
totally suppress our natural curiosity to the
world we live in, or our natural tendencies to be
individually attracted to, or repulsed by other
ways of life than those of our own culture.

But, surely, social conditioning is necessary
to ensure the survival of any culture, and
to teach its members to respect, learn, and express
the knowledge and values that have been developed
over many generations. Each culture surely has
its own way of life, its own myths and beliefs.

Problems arise for the elders and leaders of
individual societies, who are dedicated to the
preservation of traditions, as well as for those
who fear losing a position of control over
younger members who might be naturally attracted
to and curious about new, to them, ideas and ways
of life in other communities.

Then, social conditioning has to develop a sense
of exclusion to discourage members from being
tempted to learn more about other ways of life?

Exactly.

Would the elders and leaders within different
societies necessarily know themselves that
individuals possess …

Not possess; are unique energy systems. And,
the result would be the same. Leaders would still
develop taboos to discourage close association
outside of their own society.

Wouldn’t most people in most societies feel
more comfortable and at home within their own
society without needing to be conditioned
to live close to their own kind?

Who is, or are, our own kind?

I don’t know.

Yes.

The struggle goes on, and on

My Spirit Guru is teaching me

How to live in such a way as to

serve Life while serving myself

and others.

 

 

I feel both blessed and chosen, and yet

I also feel almost certain that

I have gone beyond my potential,

As well as my comfort zone,

And still there is no end in sight.

 

It is of no real consolation to me

When Spirit assures me that

There is no end.

 

Perhaps easy was never promised, but

I had a different idea of what this path

To enlightenment would be to travel.

 

A certain energy vibration impels me on.

It is as if my own energy is becoming

More and more interconnected with

An energy beyond my control.

 

Perhaps the truth is that, even if

I tried, I would not be able to quit, now.

And yet the struggle goes on.

and on.

 

Spirit tells me that struggle is

Necessary but, that’s not why

I do it, for, if the truth were told,

Much of my struggle seems to be

Not to move forward, but rather

To resist doing so.

 

I am not the person I was, when it

All began, and I seem to know that

I am not the person I will become,

And yet, at the same time, I am

And have always  been, and will

Always be me.
