Are you able to share one or two profound messages that have come through to you in your experiences? What object were the messages from and share an
insight of life from their perspective.
First, I'm sorry, you don't have to use the full handle. TGS, Grey, Swordsman, whatever you prefer.
I was just thinking that I felt bad about
everyone typing the full nick.
I'll share a few messages. While they may seem broad, as if they were several teachings, I assure you, they are a single one.
First I'll share a message from the moon. From her, I learned of prudence. It is not always a good idea to present yourself strongly. Sometimes, you
need to be a bit more restrained that others may have a fair exchange. There are, however times when you can and should apply your full presence to an
issue or situation. Moon also teaches that at times in our lives when those we love seem gone, or someone has passed on, simply because we cannot see
them does not mean they are not there. It is also prudent to let things happen in cycles, if you have too much of something, it will lose potence. If
you take too much of a medicine, you will grow immune to it's effects. If you use a strategy too often, your plots will be defeated. If you eat a
certain type of food in great quantitiy and do not vary you will from intolerant of it. There will also be times in our lives when things are going
well, and others when our ability seems to fade. This is natural, however, as you progress through the upward spiral path of life, your lows should be
higher, and your highs, higher still.
From my Hawk guide I learned that it is vital to take in the whole picture. If we look at a single problem, we will become focused on it, and the
issue will seem much larger than it is. However, when we look at the whole picture, we realize how small the issue is, how we came to it in the first
place, what it's true purpose is, and how to avoid future obstacles. He teaches me that when you have an objective that it is important to observe
the world around you. As the world changes, you will have to adjust your plans. By taking in a larger, broader view, you can more safely and freely
navigate through your life. It is very easy to be held down and bound to worldly matters, however if you let go, and see above it, you will begin to
realize what's really going on around you. Narrow vision will blind you to opportunities, and leave you vulnerable to peril. By keeping your eyes
open, you will see these coming a mile away and be ready to meet them. While on the path of life, you will face difficulties, however, if you don't
let yourself be bound by them, your heart can soar, and allow you to move through them before long.
And finally, from my car. From my car I learned a lot about human needs, and human nature. I was feeling banged up after a martial arts class. I was
sore, and worn. My car spoke to me with kindness and said that I shouldn't worry about the little pains. Though, like my car, I'm not 100%, these
little issues cannot prevent me from doing what needs to be done. My car also taught me that proper nourishment, and encouragment will eliminate many
problems before they occur. He spoke to my heart and let me understand also, that though a person may look one way, or though an obstacle my seem
large, that looks do not nessicerily guarantee a certain experience. A person can look difficult to throw from their size, however, their point of
balance is harder to recover once taken. He taught me to endure difficult or boring episodes of my life, and said much of developing power of spirit.
One must endure in life. My car may sit outside in sun, rain, ice, snow. It may not drive for days and days at a time. However, when the time comes to
get moving, he performs. This is much like a human, in our lives we face challenges, aches, pains, we may miss someone, or get bogged down by worldly
problems. We need to accept the highs with the lows and then do what needs to be done when the time comes. The worst of times will always pass, and
after facing a time of great trial, lesser worries do not seem so great as they once would have.
Each of these teachings could be expanded upon vastly, but I have shared with you a good sample. I hope that this helps to inspire you to be
relationships with those around you.
