EXPECTATIONS – DISAPPOINTMENTS CAN CLEAR THE WAY

Some years ago I had been observing some wasps at my bedroom window. There were lots of windows in my room and I did not use curtains, so I loved to sit by my bed at the windows and stare out into the nothingness of my environment, quiet and scenic.

BE RESPONSIBLE

There are some people in life whom we meet, who are on a spiritual path, they are awake or are becoming awakened, but often times when they discover that there is something different about them from the rest of society, when they realize that there is a special calling in their lives, they begin to run before the horse, instead of embracing their new found light, and trying to understand what it is they came here to this realm to do, they begin to seek power, often times the wrong kind or type of power. Some use the fact that people look up to them as enlightened beings and so they use the respect they are given to their advantage often times creating havoc in other peoples lives. Knowledge is good, and the saying is that Knowledge is power, but power can never be really owned by any human being. All things belong to God and we should know and respect that.
