Be Vigilant ?
October 5, 2018
This is the end. All life is in this moment, here and now! You and I are moving into the mysterious spirit world any moment. However, with fortune we can delay the end for a few moments endlessly until the end comes like a thief in the night. The secret hidden in plain sight in this material world is the spiritual technique of being aware or ‘vigilant’. All specie that flies, swims, and walks needs vigilance moment to moment to survive in this world. Life is interdependent on all of existence for survival.
You reap what you sow. Be a positive vigilante or ‘watchman’ of life. Hold yourself accountable rather than blaming others or your past. As you flower into adulthood, you are the master of your fate coupled with the invisible godly forces that silently affect all moments. We each have an angel or personal godlike presence that guides us, ‘if attention is paid with sensitivity. I’m reminded of a story by an anonymous source:
One night a man has a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the the beach with a ‘spirit of love’. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him and the other to the mysterious spirit of love.
When the last scene of his life flashed from him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He notices that many times along the part of his life there was only on set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the lowest and saddest time of his life.
This really bothered him and he questioned the ‘angel or spirit of love’ about it. Questioning, he asked, ‘’why since you once said to follow you, you’d walk all the way with me. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.’’
The spirit voice replies, ‘’My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.’
You are alone but for the mysterious spirit of love within you that sadly sleeps or is chased away by the ‘demons’ within you. Love only asked that you live in awareness with a heart that is open to its whispering messages of guidance to greater love and freedom.
