Spirit asks me where confirmation of our relationship could come from
In a world of form?
His words, He tells me, can speak for themselves, to those who have
Ears to hear.
He shares words of wisdom with me and tells me that we will share them
With others. He speaks with power of conviction, with both strength and
Gentility. Nobody but myself seems to be able to hear him but, perhaps
He prefers it that way, for now.
Our relationship is self-confirming, even as it is changing.
How is it changing?
You are becoming more comfortable with it.
Is acceptance comfort?
Spirit tells me that, at a grass-roots level, compassion is as
Sophisticated a way as any to express genuine care.
Gentle words of love and caring serve a need, both to the
Giver and to the one receiving, but only when the words
Are supported by caring deeds can they at least seem
To be genuine expressions.
Compassion is a beautiful word that expresses a deep but
Simple emotion, genuine care for someone or something.
But, saying it is never enough. We need to support our
Caring words with caring actions.
I could still be pretending.
Spirit has always promised, no, pledged that
We would write His book.
Sure, twenty-five years later and,
Where is the book.
Meanwhile, I have filled
Piles of journals with notes,
Words of wisdom, and
I have served as a channel,
Never in a way that
Satisfied my soul.
It all seemed too frivolous,
Unimportant, and yet,
To those involved,
On either side, it was
Obviously satisfying. But,
Nobody seemed to ask Spirit
How to live a good life.
Instead, they wanted to be happy,
Here, and rich, if possible.
Perhaps I do, too.
