You can revere the heros of our history who otherwise often lead sordid lives and will avoid any loss of faith because you are seeing the truth. The sacred is here in this life that you may have judged profane.
So how to change that. Do you feel your relationship to the scorpions? What does it feel like for them to be with you?
I get different feelings from them. Do tell?
I think they are just looking for food and probably scared of me. Thinking, accurate thinking, but not the same as feeling.
But individually, one seemed evil, one was just exploring. Evil. You believe in evil and in exploring it. Does this ring true?
Yes. That context needs to change. Can you feel the presence of the scorpions beyond you? What does your intuition tell you about desert scorpions?
I just picture them, no words come to mind. Do you reject them in nature?
No. They are fine when they are outside. Does it scare you that they are out there? Do you feel it’s ok for scorpions to exist?
I don’t want to step on one, but that’s their domain. Intellectually you know. Yes, it’s ok. But do you feel it?
Well, perhaps I can use myself as an example. For me its spiders and flies. Spiders don’t disturb me, flies do. I attract flies because I feel powerless. I feel like I have to take my opportunities where I can. I have to eat my shit and like it. When this feeling passes from me, the flies also go.
About spiders, and I was not stressed about the flies. I did not care about them. For me, spiders are normal. My regular mindset. Nest somewhere, wait, and feel connections. I have never had a spider problem. They linger only briefly and I am never injured by them. People are even surprised because they commonly found spider webs, but no spiders.
For my wife, it’s not even animals. It’s plants. Some years the yard grows thick, others it looks almost groomed. Some years it has many weeds, others it’s mostly just flowers. Plants tend to grow green and strong around her, and she doesn’t know why, though recently she has had a run of withering, indoors, and she also doesn’t know why.
Seeing the process at work here?
Your situation isn’t social. It’s work. You made the decision to nest among the scorpions and are not comfortable with it. This off base?
Yes, work is driving me crazy. You have made the decision to nest with scorpions. The scorpions have made the decision to nest with you. Can you feel differently about work? Can you move your heart about it?
I will have to think about how to do that. No, you will have to feel about it. You will have to let the situation get into your head. Can you avoid moving a limb when it’s burning?
No. We avoid moving our spirits because we don’t let them feel what is going on around us. When they do feel it, they will move. With greater awareness, they will even come to be able to act.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
