You and I exist. We exist in a body, as you can see, Along with other things we can see created on the earth. There is little doubt and confusion about our existence in the body. We can all agree on this.
Did you know that there are things that exist that we cannot see with our eyes. A part of our existence is unseen, unlike the body which is easily seen. This unseen part of us is meant to live and not die. It is another aspect or feature of our existence. Another dimension. In truth, this is hard to believe and rarely believed by most. With good reason, because we simply cannot see it with our familiar eyes.
Sadly, most people give no thought to this part of our existence. It often goes unnoticed. We are easily confused or neglectful concerning it. We doubt its value and power and position. Unfortunately, we doubt its existence. Why is it easily ignored? We cannot see it with our eyes or hear it with our ears. As we are trained and accustomed to do in this life.
We cannot vue it as we vue creation around us. We have learned to trust only our senses, Yet, our senses are not capable of recognizing it. It is like a frequency or sound wave that a broken radio cannot receive.
Ignoring the unseen part of our life is a matter of living or dying. Above all things, we must realize and recognize its existence.
A question may be, how can we know and trust and give attention to what is not visible to the eyes? Is it possible to believe in the existence of something that I cannot see? Yes, all things are possible.
There are other things that exist that we cannot see with our eyes. Things that we are hopefully familiar with. Recognizing these things may help us to better trust the existence of unseen things. To give us a reason to search and desire things that are invisible.
Can you see love? Can you touch kindness or hold patience in your hands? Do you swallow anger with your mouth so that you can send it forth from your tongue? For our sakes, we cannot see or hold or touch these things. Or else mankind would most likely try to buy and sell them as they like to do. Although you cannot physically see them, you do believe these things exist, don't you? Although they are invisible to the eyes, you know they exist right, right?
Of course they exist. In a clever way at that. They are not material or do not consist of matter, like the things created on this earth. Moth and rust cannot destroy them. They are hidden, yet easily in reach if we truly desire and take hold of them within. Unfortunately, they remain strangers to us if we neglect them. They exist and move in a another aspect or dimension.
They come and go, pass and remain. All depending upon our trust of their existence and our desire to connect or disconnect with them. They exist in the same dimension as the unseen part of our life. Although they are around us and through us, it takes a different vision to see the existence and value and power of these unseen things. A vision that the eyes of the body cannot see or the ears of the body cannot hear. No, the hands of the body cannot hold the things of this unseen dimension. The senses of the body cannot recognize them.
This vision to see what is unseen happens in the mind and in the heart. It is a perception and a vue. Haven't you said before about a subject, "Yes, now I see what you are saying". How do you see what someone says? How do you see a sound? Didn't you hear it with your ears? Most often it is because you see it with the eyes of your mind and in your heart. Do you see what I am saying? I hope you do.
A common thought and influence of the world, Is to focus on what you can see, not the things you cannot see. They say, "you are dreaming, come back to reality." I prefer to chase after the unseen things if they are right. I prefer to dream if they are good. I prefer to be blind in this world if it allows me to see the unseen things more clearly.
Spirit is used to define this unseen dimension of our lives. As best as we can in this world with our limited vue of things. Love, patience and kindness move in this dimension called spirit. Likewise, anger, bitterness and confusion.
They are, you can say, spiritual things. Spirit, like the wind or your breath, cannot be seen. But you believe the wind exists, don't you? You believe that you have breath, right? I do. So we ought to trust and believe the existence of spiritual things.
When we cry within, it begins in spirit. When we hate within, it begins in spirit. When we judge within, it begins in spirit. When we ask and desire and seek, we do this in an unseen way. A spiritual way.
Spirit communicates and has its place as our minds and in our hearts. It is the language between God and man, because God reaches out to us by that unseen way. God is spirit and he connects to us through the mind and heart. For most it is a foreign language that is unspoken and unlearned. We are quick to doubt and misunderstand and misinterpret. In spirit, there is good and evil. Right and wrong. Things that continue and things that end.
There exists a good and right spirit, and a good mind. A perfect and incorruptible way. Let this mind be in you and direct you. Desire it and ask for it and follow it.
There also exists evil and wrong spirits, and evil minds. A destructive and corruptible way. Don't let this mind be in you and direct you. Do not share it. Reject it and do not follow it.
This one thing is true. If we ask and receive and follow the good and right spirit, we should have no fear of evil.
As you go...
If you take something from this message, As you go on throughout your day, Give attention to the unseen part of your life. Take care and thought to spiritual things.
You may not believe its existence now, but contemplate on these things. Pay attention and desire to notice its existence.
Your troubles and confusion are very significant and remain with you for a reason. So also does peace and true gladness.
What is speaking to you from within, What do you cry out for? How are you truly responding?
