I don’t want to be asleep. I want to see the importance of nurturing the Spirit always. God, don’t let me get caught up in the hustle and bustle, the strict detailings of the world. I don’t want it. The world unseen has so many more treasures. Unseen treasures. Treasures that enrich our minds, our souls, our connection with others, the essence of our lives. Not so much the physical. The physical can be included, but it is not the sole beneficiary to a spiritual life. The physical is the thing that benefits from a life of work and toil and striving for material things.
How can the striving for physical pleasure bring anything but physical pleasure? I want more than that. I want spiritual and emotional wholeness. Can I receive that through striving for material things? No. The lesson in the striving for material things is that once we get what we thought we wanted, we always want more.
But if I strive for spiritual riches, I am satiated. If I want for more, I get closer to Spirit, and Spirit fills me even more. I then have abundance, I feel abundance. I can share in this abundance by giving to others unselfishly, knowing that I will never run out of spiritual riches. As long as I stay connected to Spirit, the flow of abundance is unceasing and endless. I am then a channel, a vessel, a transmitter to share this abundance with others.
Material riches run out. I give and give, and if I’m only giving from my own ego and supply, I will run out. But if I give, even material riches, and accept that it is Spirit who is making the supply possible, then I take my ego out of the equation, and anyone who is blessed spiritually or materially at that point knows that it is Spirit who gives, not me. In this way, the supply will never run out. There is always more to give.
I'm just a traveler, a dreamer, like you.
