Dear Newly Awakened Ones:
Are you getting your new 'spiritual teeth'? Is your Consciousness letting you 'figure things out' and 'grasp lessons' that before had been puzzling to you? The same has been happening to me. As with all teaching from Spirit, the concepts make sense but it doesn't 'translate' into the physical well. Perhaps that is why Jesus and Buddha taught in such 'fable story' ways, to get the point across that is important but hard to explain.
Today's subject is The Importance of Letting Go in the Spiritual Cycle.
Let us suppose we are the puppies and Source/God is our owner.
As good puppies, we all learn by play.
Source, wants us to learn, and plays 'catch' with us.
The ball (Life Lesson) is thrown to us what seems haphazardly, but in fact is calculated to generate as much fun and learning for the dog.
We engage--as only puppies can--and CHASE IT! We worry it, we conquer it, we show that ball who is boss!
And we bring it back to the owner for more. They will take it, it is wet and icky, but they enjoy the fact that we want to play and we want to learn and we want to build confidence through this game of fetch. In fact, this is central to what dogs do.
What happens to the game of fetch when the dog won't let go of the ball?
Spirit says, 'Drop it! Drop it! Give me the ball!'
Sometimes it is hard for me to let go. I am a Cancerian, I am working on 'the emotions' this time around incarnate. Like the crab, I can hang on to things for a LONG TIME. Consequently my spiritual lessons have involved learning to detach, asking Archangel Michael to 'cut the cords' that tie me to another or a particular life event, and to accept that learning is a cycle, and we must release something in order to progress to the next phase of our development.
