I could tell you about the days I used bike almost 20 miles or jog daily. I could tell you about the items I had on a list in preparation for a dream hike on the Appalachian Trail. I could tell you about the GT program I think about at the school we set up before I had to leave because my body was changing from what it was to it is or seems to be. I could tell you so many things but what I want you to know is there is always hope in the darkest of days. Even when the dreams come true and they are dashed before your eyes? It is a shifting of material things not a reality you may choose to hold it looks towards hope after you grieve the change which has occurred. Do you know what I mean? when I ask you, if your spiritual scales are balanced? Let me clarify slightly, as you make your way through this life, you will grow and change—crisis, challenges, choices, of all sorts, will be presented. Here is an example: you pay for an item at the store. As you are walking out, you realize you have been given change back for a $20 bill instead of a $5 bill WHAT DO YOU DO? 1)Do you go back & let the checker know of the mistake (did you assume it was a woman- another spiritual check- — 2) Do you walk out with the money and let the checker be responsible for their very human mistake? – they may have lost someone in their family that day– did you just say they deserve a “wake-up call” another spiritual check…
This is what I was referring to as a spiritual balance scale. Your empathy and compassion depending upon how self-aware and how in tune you are will appear inside and in front of you with clarity. Are you in peace? One more insight: at the beginning of this journey I was so very very sick (like a stomach flu that would not go away) and trying to teach still. The alleged representatives from the Christian church stopped by to check-in on me. They asked how I was, what the doctors were doing, all the tests, no answers and no response to the medications. They asked if they could pray for me and I of corse said yes. (I was raised in the church- my Mom & Dad both taught in the church- I had not shared this with anyone) They then proceeded to tell me my illness may be for something I had done and I should pray harder. (Suddenly I could hear My Dad’s voice clearly in my mind, “you know their words are not true… send them home with kindness and forgiveness in your heart. I knew immediately my Dad was watching over me and God was with me) not long after this a tray belonging to Dad’s side of the family was inadvertently stepped on and it shattered the glass. It is like a lap tray but an antique one with glass the picture is embedded into the glass. It hurt my heart because it was a tangible representing the intangible but I knew immediately it did not matter. The true things of value were not here where you can touch them but what we create with our actions.
As I am doing my best to illustrate everything for all of you? God is not done! The tray I am trying to describe and it’s lesson in the spiritual context? From 1996-1999 has a red wooden back and in the front!? Is my #PeaceBoat and there is not one but 3 + they are blue. I had put this tray up and not touched it since before 1999. I have not thought of it since I put it away that day. I had hoped the next time my hands touched it – I would be taking it to restoration. I use deletion as my coping skill. I had not yet learned my lessons back then … but God knew!#PeaceBoat It has been a long road getting very comfortable in my #DNA physical emotional spiritual
