The shake is impossible, the spoon wonders as he raises it towards his mouth, the diagnosis, that’s the progression of the illness, it’s only expected to worsen. Many with such conditions accept the version of the diagnosis given, the mood is set, the decline is expected you better get used to it. The picture, a very real one, the sturdy hand now can’t control the shake, those looking on, the mental struggle of the patient, how others see them, adding angst, it’s the look that deepens into depression, but that can all change, and simply too. Suffering is what makes us human, how we deal with it, that’s the inner stuff, where do you find it, who gives it freely.
Solomon watched the decline of a close friend, and saw the symptoms disappear over a short period, yes, the symptoms went, the hand no longer the struggle, what happened. The inner spirit of the friend connects with the true Spirit, a level that is not material in thought, but thinks of the higher realm. What do you mean, the patient wonders, how can it be eased, the carer asks, is there anything i can do to help, is this a false promise. Solomon sighs, the lesson is a very simple one, written thousands of years before, one that Jesus told his early followers. He stops, this is a story of the Spirit, and where it comes from, not man, but from God, listen and see how it can be applied to you. The lesson is simple, whom do you trust in, what is the state of your spirit. So many carry bias inside them, old hurts passed on, fear, the legacy of a lack of forgiveness, in short, the mental baggage you acquire, cuts off the dwelling space for the true spirit to find roots inside you, so you want to feel better, imagine Jesus going town to town, doing what no ordinary person can do, then giving all credit to the One in Heaven who gave him His spirit, so that he could heal, like the eternal father, recall, the ego of a human being has zilch to do with it, that’s vanity personified, lead by the Spirit. no one else,we are told, The Great one is a jealous God, you can’t take credit for what the Spirit from above allows, that’s stealing from the source. So, the first question you have to ask, what is the status of your faith, in whom do you trust, this is the start of the recovery. You will not be disappointed, firstly, you will come to realize, that whatever happens, you found the road to eternal life, and that’s a huge win. The next step, read the stories of Jesus, or listen it, read Ezra, his predictions for these times, the prophecies, they will inform you, that what is going on, was recognized a long time ago. So you discover the eternal truth, bit by bit, your spirit will expand, and the heart will open to the Spirit from above, and then, you will be at ease. Little by little, you will begin to notice, the inner well being increases, you start to feel better, it becomes a progression, and when you feel better within, you will pray with a heart, that believes, not one, as Beckett wrote about in waiting for Godot, you don’t need to wait for someone to tell you, you believe before you hear you are getting better, try it out, and if in doubt,send the writer here an email etc, and He will get back to you with more advice, cheers, always put your trust in the One True God, it works for ever, amen.
