Harvesting the Physical Experience
It feels more than ever a time to apply everything learned on the physical level to that of spirit. From spirit we find yet another stepping stone in our physical surroundings to get the most of what it has to offer us in our deepest sense of learning.
To this day tools given by situations, encounters, people, and trials especially can be appreciated and applied. For the latter, I mean for the having of what had been built upon by our earliest years now suffice more for intervals of depreciating a part of an illusion we are no longer in need of. Reality can now enter what is called primary sense and at the same time aid in what is called secondary or sixth sense and above. As our spirits well with growth and experience it becomes more relevant and clear as to what it is we are now in need of letting go. How it is we separate these while advancing our personal center is not always an ongoing issue, however consider the person trying to grasp an upper crest of land whom has fallen into a trench. There is a brief moment a person gives all they can physically and may even surpass to get out of a place they desire the least to be in. As such, a welling of emotion from our spirit can purge enough to get to the other side of an obstacle we may be going through. In the same way a person struggling physically to get out of a trench, a spiritual growth can perform much the same way. Brief encounters with discomfort/disease allow us eventually to forget everything we may have known and rise to the point of shear determination. The likeness of sink or swim emotion.
Remember as children being taught, as many, the Who, What, Where, When and Why of a subject matter written of. For black there is white, for day there is night. It would follow for spiritual there is physical and versa-vice. I am most uncomfortable in the physical; I appreciate inner peace and quiet (and REM). I may not be at every social gathering, but I am not anti-social. Applying the 5 Wís with the acknowledgement of opposition can be a fine start.
Who could be any of us. What could be anything that isnít working where we are right now - or yesterday. Why, because we are beings of spirit not of manís origin.
When there are tears give. When there is frustration be silent and center. Where there is despair leave what you understand and follow your heart.
Though our physical surroundings may present confusion. We may not understand what it is to do next. However, the most simplistic way of understanding lies in our heart and who we were before what it was which we became.
I urge anyone whom can offer something to anotherís discomfort to do so. Within this singular element lay genuine peace.
****For our winter months it would be efficient to purchase and understand accordingly to that which may be sparing. This can be somewhat fun, as to those pertaining the crossword puzzle. It may take some time but the rewards will be plentiful. Purchase wisely to the food group as well as those among other items (ie. Tuna 4/1.00,generic,Stores of discount/Dollar General, Big Lots, etc!). As well it can be just as rewarding to experiment in cooking for ones-self,harvesting the last of the garden, freezing such for a special treat,and enjoy until we meet with our planting season again.***
Blessings and fortitude for every soul. Elleise
