A look at a Spirit Guide, from a Christian.
They call this child, little Buddha boy. That hat is Colombian from his sister, the drawing is from his brother.
I reckon most Christian do not get the essence of a spirit guide
A Day without sin. Have you ever planned out a day where the only intention was to do no wrong. It is a strange concept. A guide is something or someone who helps you in such an endeavor. Spirit guides are as old as man.
I really do not care what your spiritual persuasion is. All have some notion of right and wrong and most some concept of sin. Some days I try to set aside time without anything but feel good stuff. The concept comes from both the Sabbath and a point of theory called Pratyahara - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Pratyahara (Devanāgarī प्रत्याहार, Tibetan སོ་སོར་སྡུད་པ་) or the 'withdrawal of the senses' is the fifth element among the Eight .. Way too deep. It is a concept of withdrawal of senses. So you turn off everything electronic or electric and zone out. Individual modifications are a must just like a Sunday that you work but go to mass on Monday.
The important thing is that the space you enter is closer to being free of clutter. So your mind and spirit can focus on the good, the beautiful and the worthy. If you take a day and just focus on the good. You will only do good on that day.
Just imagine saying to your heart: "how are you doing today?"
Our intangible mental health requires nourishment just like our breathing bodies do. If you neglect it, it will wither and die. Somehow get it in your head that it is not a waste of time to take care of the real you.
I was raised being taught the way of the Southwestern Apache and Hopi. It never has occured to me that that way is different from that other, "the way".
We don't need saints and martyrs what we need to do is respect the children
For me the setting aside of time is occasioned by my little monkey son. What need have we for electronics. His world is complete in the mystery of a garden hose, or any kind of moving or still waters. He is amazed at bugs and any plant with flowers(or not). He points out colors that I had long forgotten and there is no difference between my rake and his.
The notion is that if we truly live in the moment we find space/places in our soul that we normally run roughshod over. We do not even pay attention to the bee, but instead shew it away or kill it. We don't just sit and commune with our animals or wild animals. We noise we hear are distractions rather than a sound creation.
Generally folks would tell you to get rid of the son, because he is a distraction. They have a good point if the son is a distraction. But for me, on those days he is the attraction. I have trouble letting go of the world. He does not yet know the world. He is my Spirit Guide and minister, down the road of renewal. As for Christ, how wonderful that he leads me so a little soul can guide and love me so much.
The world can wait. We are in such a rush these days that we miss out. By trying to get everything in we are missing some of everything. Wholeness needs our attention it is not obtained by running here and fro and a result oriented approach. Yes we need that these days but we also need to invest in our sanity.
I really want to make it more complicated and keep writing. However that would be the antithesis of what I am after. Breath peace into your own heart. Shut your eyes tight and open them anew. Be like a child and He will call you His own.
