Intoxicating Possibility


In the early years of skill discovery it was difficult to focus on any one concept, I wanted to understand all of what I could do, to know how energy healing, aura reading, psychometric readings and precognative dreaming worked. I wanted something, anything that would compartmentalize and humanize spiritual activity. Forty years of searching has led me to understand that the spiritual root of self is central to living as human, it is our very core.

What I’ve learned is that we haven’t lost the core connection. It moves with us, acting like a thread or tether to the Whole never broken, ever-present, ever strong. Generally, we are offered the family’s belief system, cultural preferences, and life path options with nudges from parents or significant others holding us close. Not surprisingly, the actual rediscovery of core connection to the Whole is up to each of us individually. It is a self-discovery path we walk alone. Imagine how different living physically might have been if we had tapped into the Spirit Collective from an early age.

Over lunch this week with a like-minded colleague, I discussed my quest for understanding free will, the life path and Spirit collaboration. I also shared a number of dreams from my journal regarding life path choices. For example, some years after my mother returned to Spirit, I had a dream revealing several options she had to choose from while living on Earth. Each life path she might have lived was different from the other, however they all had a common thread, she lived with and died of lung disease. In another recent dream, where I again raised the question of free will before entering the dream state, I was shown a young woman who was painfully thin and didn’t like her body. She also had a number of choices for life paths, all included living as a thin woman. These examples follow my previous logic, that we are born into circumstances previously chosen in the Spirit Collective state, with the ability to choose from a variety of paths, creatively orchestrating daily events, ultimately creating who we are in the present moment.

After a lengthy conversation, my colleague and I found the discussion opened a Pandora’s box of questions. I share just a few of them here:

  • If we were more connected with Spirit Collective (or what I’ve come to call our Wisdom Self), would it be possible to collaborate consciously in order to create a rewarding life path and/or to assist in co-facilitating personal growth in others?
  • I have several friends living with dis-ease. Would it be possible to collaborate with Spirit consciously to determine best course of action here in the physical for assisting others on their life journeys as they continue in life or through the transition period back to Spirit?
  • How would life be different? Might we better understand the gifts we’re born with and choose occupations based on the gifts?
  • Would we work together in large groups to discern next steps for our culture, for our world?

And finally, would there be discussion and decisions at the Spirit Collective level that seep through the core threads tethering each of us to our Wisdom Self in order for us to consciously recognize and grow with constant, steady nurturing? What a wonderous reality this could be if we were consciously aware each moment of being more than this…

“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so foaming, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility! ~~ Soren Kierkegaard

  1. All of what you have so deeply pondered in free will and this last posting is quite a bit to chew on. Thanks for sharing from this deep soul place. Great questions, great reflections! LS

    • Thank you for your thoughts and comments. Living from a spiritual base has changed my perception of life and living completely. What I call the Wisdom Self sees, feels and thinks while I step back and allow events to unfold. I have now become the participant, yet also the observer. All and everything has taken on a completely new “look,” in some cases new life. For instance when I see a tree moving in the breeze, I feel the movement is gesture in response to the stimulus, the stimulus of both the breeze and my observation/contemplation of the tree. I do not feel separate from the tree, or the breeze, or even the movement, all is part of the orchestra and symphony of Oneness.

      I recently finished reading Dr. David R. Hawkins book “Power VS. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior.” His experience with Presence, the Whole, Spirit, or God had a similar effect on him. Once he had experienced awareness of the “Infinite Oneness,” he states that “This culmination of inner work is the most difficult phase, the ultimate watershed, where one is starkly aware that the illusion of existence one transcends here is irrecoverable. There’s no returning from this step.” He is absolutely correct. Once there is knowledge, there is no turning away. There is no going back to what was before. The illusion is gone, there is only one Oneness, what Hawkins calls “universal divinity.”

  2. I am a believer that collective spirituality has power that we have not even touched yet as human beings. Thanks for your perspective on this value of spirituality.
