CONFUSION’s physical impact

Distracting colors

Confusion fills our lives, and some of us handle it better than others. Some of us get autoimmune diseases and some of us get psychological imbalances and some of us get cancer and some of us even get suicidal. The confusion is more destructive than we realize.

What is Spirit saying here? That confusion causes our self-destruction? Spirit wants us to know the role that confusion plays in our modern lives so that we can find ways to make them less confusing.

Modern life is filled with so much confusion, and it is getting more and more confusing as we achieve additional technological and societal advances. People today have so many choices, and the choices can overwhelm in a way that eventually translates into physical harm.

Consider the confusion in the lives of modern four-year-old children. Many children have too many toys, and having to choose what to play with can be confusing. There may be too many clothes in the closet, and choosing what to wear is confusing (nonetheless, children should choose rather than their parents). The children may go to play group, day care, or kindergarten, where the staff rotates, the number and temperaments of children is in flux, the foods offered are unfamiliar, and the choices of activities overwhelm and confuse. The afternoons and evenings can be confusing too, as the children navigate the relationships in the home—short tempers sometimes, inconsistent parenting, and tiredness. Happy times can be confusing too, as they are often filled with bending of the rules and stimuli that overexcite. Exposure to the world of smartphones and computers adds a confusion that children have never had to face—a confusion that will only be understood in about thirty years.

The confusion these children face daily can lay the groundwork for difficulty with choices, anxiety, and self-doubt. These emotional responses can cause malfunctioning in the systems that protect and nurture the body. The confusion maneuvers its way into the future lives of these unsuspecting children.

As for the rest of us past the age of four, confusion has become a subtle, and not so subtle, companion. Too many choices when choosing a career path, when planning a day, when choosing mindless time fillers and when feeding our bodies, overwhelm our ability to process information. Our bodies weren’t designed for all the stimulation that comes our way on a daily basis. The overstimulation over-occurring, day after day, is confusing for the body to process. When inadequate sleep, improper nourishment and regular use of stimulants tax the body, the confusion maneuvers its way in further, causing havoc and imbalance.

The confusion is the cause of many of today’s afflictions. It’s a hard source to blame, and an even harder source to study. It’s the modern source of new afflictions. Confusion binds with the other sources of imbalance, and dynamically increases their impact.

Confusion is confusing to understand. Spirit is sharing wisdom to help us open our minds to confusion’s place in our world. I’m very surprised. How about you?

Heart Wise

Heart wise

To be heart wise is to be tuned into your heart’s understanding. The heart, the intangible heart, knows the need for connections, for heartfelt connections, and it will push you to create these connections. Listening to your heart’s guidance is living life wisely.

Heartfelt connections are filled with forgiveness and desire for understanding. These connections offer acceptance and support. They fill relationships with warmth and they encourage openness and attention.

Heartfelt actions are not always kind, but they are felt deeply. The actions reflect inputs from past and present pressures so that the actions are not purely heart present. Heartfelt actions that are hurtful cause guilt and remorse. Heartfelt actions that are plagued by tiredness are sometimes stilted or delivered with incorrect intention. Feeling love does not guarantee heartfelt actions that reflect the true feelings.

When actions are consistently unkind, the connections require reconsideration. Unkindness mainly comes from a place of not-love. When the source of a relationship is forced connection or deception, heartfelt actions are difficult to perform because the heart knows the truth. The mind can pretend, but the heart knows.

Heart wise connections bring sincere satisfaction and grounding. They require investment of time and determination. Heart wise connections are not necessarily easy nor are they without turbulence. What they are is truth: truth from the heart.

Why do we need spiritual connection?

Post 92-spiritual connection

  • We need spiritual connection because our lives are insignificant without it.
  • We need spiritual connection to help us weather stormy and difficult times.
  • We need spiritual connection when nature overcomes us with its beauty or its fearsomeness.
  • We need spiritual connection as a means to fathom life and death.
  • We need spiritual connection if we are lonely or hurt.
  • We need spiritual connection filling our lives with purpose, elevation, and reason for striving.

Spiritual connection can be found on one’s own or in a group. The main thing to know about spiritual connection is that it is available to all equally. No group has a claim on higher access to spiritual connection.

People who dedicate themselves to spiritual connection at the expense of connecting to the people around them are not living spiritual connection correctly. Spiritual connection is not an excuse for turning one’s back on the needs of other people.

Spiritual connection can be a way to understand the world around if we can see the spirituality in all living things.

Spiritual connection fills the world with beauty, drama, and interactions.

Spiritual connection is the basis for ethical and caring treatment of all living things, including people.

Resistance to major change

Post 30 luck

Oh if life were so easy
I would be the person I was meant to be
I would take on challenges and handle them with ease
I would be open and funny and clever
I would look fabulous and sing on key
I would not be cranky or defensive
And I would not get upset over silly things.

But life isn’t easy
So I let myself off the hook
And often don’t try
And blame others
And wallow in misery
And even give up
Sometimes.

Perhaps there is a place where
I can find respite from my too-difficult me
Where my mind shuts up
And my gut finally stills
Where I let myself accept
And I let myself free
The person that I am truly meant to be.

Too many people let themselves sink too low. Rather than rejoice in their living, they choose their misery. Sometimes the cause is nutritional, sometimes the cause is hormonal, and sometimes the cause is just habit. When the reason is laziness or lack of appreciation, the way out is through communal service. When the reason is nutritional or hormonal, the way out is through intervention by a nutritionist, naturopath, doctor, or other healing specialist.

There are other causes as well for the spiral downwards, and often spiritual connection can aid the situation. Energy Guidance Complete is spiritual healing focused on balance and elevated living. Making changes in one’s focus can lead to changes in one’s self-centeredness. Finding guidance that is larger than oneself can loosen self-absorption.  Accepting that the difficulties are just difficulties that can be handled releases self-indulgence.

Resistance to major change? Not worthy of true living. Life flows and the less we fight the flow, the more we can heal.

A puzzle of plastic

puzzle

Plastic bottles, plastic bags—obvious things made from plastic. Remote controls, the grips of many cooking pans, polyester clothing— less obvious things made from plastic. Plastic is an integral part of our lives.

Puzzling how we so easily bring plastic into our lives and let the nature go.

What if we were to make nature as integral a part of our lives as we make plastic. What would we add to our homes? Plants, flowers—obvious natural objects. Also baskets of fruit (to be admired and then eaten), cloth dyed with natural colors, useful and decorative items made from wood or stone.

Healing, the path

blog 3

Healing is a tricky two-sided intangible structure. Tricky: easy to reach, easy to lose, easy to feel complacent about, easy to constantly run after never quite reaching. Two-sided: have it-don’t have it, have it-don’t have it, have it-don’t have it, have it-don’t have it. Actually, always have it—just don’t realize. Intangible: fully effervescent. Structure: healing is a very structured and intricate feature in the design of all living things.

Healing is not available to those who use illness to attain a goal. Many use illness to keep from participating in life. Look at the people you know who are ill and consider the last sentence. It does not apply to all, but to many.

Healing is a spiritual path, not a physical prescription. When ill, one should take the necessary precautions and mending steps. Mending steps include sleep, hydration, nutrient intake, and positive focus. Staying away from over-excitement or over-exertion or over-indulgence (not meaning overindulgence of food, rather overindulgence of self-pity or self-over-focus [I’m-too-unwell-to-deal-with-life-and-think-of-others]). Staying away from others when contagious. Staying away from temptations. Staying away from activity.

Healing can be quick or languishing depending on age, attitude, previous physical condition, and determination, and of course, on the healing issue. Feeling determined to be well is very important. Any trace of benefit from the illness or condition can slow the healing process. Even a well meant show of sympathy can slow the healing. Best to heal with as little sympathy as possible. Attitude influences on all levels-physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. A happy attitude greatly enhances healing.

The healing process is constantly occurring. It occurs until the body gives out or gives way.
