Spirit Teaches a Simple Seeker

The Art of Timeless Wisdom – Book Three

We are part of the galaxy of stars, and they influence us more than most of us are aware of. So it is with the world we live in, here on Planet Earth. Our nations’ leaders make decisions that affect the well-being of us all. So it is with authorities closer to home. Even family members and friends, not to mention our employers, have power over us, at least to some extent.

We need to find our way in our community, or we are likely to be pushed to the edges of it and find ourselves in need of food and shelter.

So, where does the art of timeless wisdom fit into such a threatening possibility? We need to learn survival skills; physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. Spirit teaches a simple seeker these basic physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual skills.

How does Spirit teach? He often pokes fun at how inappropriate her responses to life situations sometimes are, and then helps her to understand that there is a more appropriate way to respond. It requires developing consistent and satisfying patterns of response, and not simply how to respond to particular situations. If that were the case, He tells her, we’d have to learn ten thousand different ways to respond. It would likely prove to be too much of an effort, and we would backslide to old ways that sometimes worked, but more often, did not. We need to develop flexibility and yet, also, consistency. Not an easy game to play.

The good news, for you dear readers, is that you can simply enjoy witnessing this simple seeker’s struggle to adapt to Spirit’s teachings, while still remaining true to herself, or as true as she can. You may learn something. and you may not. Each of us learns according to our own style, and what impresses some may have no affect on some others

The Art of Timeless Wisdom – Book Two

Life lessons learned are as steps that move us along our path or journey through life by teaching us to think and consider possible alternatives to each thought, emotion, or action that we choose to respond to the countless events, situations, and relationships we participate in during our activities of daily living.

The thirty-three lessons shared within this book are not to be considered as being sequential, random, nor alphabetical in importance. They each stand alone, and yet, at the same time are designed to contribute to the overall emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development of the seeker.

Spirit’s teaching style is to stimulate thinking, which has a higher priority to Him than any of the thirty-three so-called lessons or topics of discussion, either singularly or collectively. The stimulation of thinking is an end in itself, while the topics discussed contribute, if they do, to that end. Expansion of awareness cannot possibly develop without an ever-expanding capacity to think.

Where does love, and it does, fit into Spirit’s teaching? Quality of thought, Spirit tells me, necessarily inspires quality of emotion, just as quality of emotion inspires quality of thought. Love and wisdom are in harmony with each other, or they are not what they may claim to be. It is as simple as that.

The Art of Timeless Wisdom – Book One

How and when did I become a simple seeker? Perhaps I was born to be as I am or seem to be. And perhaps you, dear reader, were also born to be just as you are, beneath all the social conditioning that has influenced your thinking from the moment you were born, if not earlier.

We each learn how to live by living, and there may be no better way. Of course, we often, or not so often, mess up. So what? It may all be part of a lifetime learning experience.

I’ve always been so critical of myself, as if I expected myself to be perfect, even though that seemed impossible, for me. Spirit tells me that it’s more than unhealthy; It’s self-destructive to devalue ourselves. We can never be more than we are at any given time, He tells me, but we owe it to ourselves to become aware of both our weaknesses and our strengths, and to intend to improve.

It’s all about love, He tells me. We are each and all loved more than we may ever know. Who loves us? Of course, we each love ourselves more and/or less, and some of us seem blessed to be loved by some others, but our unique inner spirit loves us with an unconditional love, just as we are.

Then, why try to understand life? For me, it’s a personal journey that we each and all share, with or without awareness of life being a journey of discovery, and/or of moving along the road (or path) of Life.
