Armesh: We bid you welcome. Todays lesson begins with us talking about the nature of Spirit. Spirit imbibes everything around you, every article, however big, however small. It maintains its own sense of self and its own connection to the divine wherever it is close within the order of all things.
As humans you are blessed with the ability to move with your spirit and to evolve. Other aspects of material life also have this ability, though for them evolution is slow, and often without distinct personality. For a human to attempt to live without spirit is to become less than animal, for animals fulfill perfectly their own space, within the universe. Do not belittle though, their place within it.
For a human to consciously evolve is a beautiful thing. But it can only be done with conscious work and effort, and by honing the spiritual life within, and by recognizing self as the Child that is of God.
It is often difficult for humans to define what Spirit means. It is a part of you that is already divine, a part of you that knows. The part that carries within it all patterns and templates, all aspects of that which is needed to allow you to manifest through your mortal lives. The spirit links all your aspects, some of which have a permanent nature, others a more temporary one. Each of them however, is malleable, can be changed, can be honed, and can be carved to draw out the most beautiful sculpture hidden within the block of stone.
The Spirit Self is already perfect. When you work on honing your spiritual side, do not try to hone your Spirit. Hone your connection to your Spirit, and in doing so you chisel away at your personality, at your ego, and at other aspects of human life, until they form the perfect picture. This picture cannot be perfect without the recognition and guidance of the Divine Spirit within you. Pay attention to Spirit, as it is needed. This is both, the easiest and the most difficult.
You spend years creating circumstances to allow yourselves to look the other way, distractions, because for some reason you have become afraid of your Spirit Self. When you allow the personality and the ego to be properly formed, then the Spirit can shine through, and can assist in the further sculpting of the personality and the ego. All that is needed is your willingness.
I say this again, since many of you believe you need intellectual rigor or hard study to know the divine you. Anyone who chooses to look for Spirit will find it, and so simply, by looking within themselves and finding the truth that occupies the core of their being.
When you allow this to happen, then, truly, miracles can occur.
