We had some interesting comments on last week’s newsletter, Pay Attention To What You’re Paying Attention To. For those of you who didn’t see it, Joseph and I talked about a cooking “accident” I had. It was a kitchen fire which could have easily burned my house down.
Most of comments were, as usual, supportive and positive. Some were not. Which is fine. I’ve always encouraged your honest feedback, positive or negative.
I don’t do this often, but this week I want to talk about negative feedback.
That feedback could be condensed into a single question:
How could you, channel for this wonderful spirit guide, Joseph, have challenges other humans do? (That is, how could you, of all people, have almost burned your house down?)
Over many years now, in this newsletter and in my private correspondence with many of you, I have never made a secret of my human challenges. Or pretended I was superhuman. In fact, my challenges sometimes provide “fodder” for subjects Chief Joseph wants to talk about. As was case last week–and this week too.
Nevertheless, some of you have clearly put me up on a pedestal. Being on a pedestal is very uncomfortable. At least for me.
One woman even said she could barely imagine me in kitchen cooking. Like ordinary mortals, I guess she meant.
Folks, I’m as human as all rest of you. Still growing and remembering. And I’m as spiritual as all rest of you. All-powerful and all-wise.
We’re all human and spiritual at same time. Being human doesn’t make us any less spiritual. And being spiritual doesn’t make us any less human.
You’ll never get your life over and done with–there are no destinations, only endless journeys. You’re always growing, whether in human or spirit form.
And so, in that spirit of adventure, your souls have often decided to project themselves, if you will, into physical form. You’ve all done this many times over eons, in far more physical lifetimes than you could ever recall from your current human perspective.
You and your soul–or higher self, or whatever term you prefer–are eternally one, eternally bonded. This human personality you now are, and this human body you have now, are simply an extension of that greater you–your soul, your higher self.
