Following is an excerpt from one of my (Cindy’s) automatic writing sessions where I asked Spirit why a driver who had cut me off in traffic had upset me. After I re-read the transcript, I decided to share an edited version with you, as I feel it has a broader value than just guidance for me.
Spirit: You’re very focused on rules, but there are so many rules, how can you possibly keep them straight? There are rules for driving, sleeping, running, everything. Everybody has their own opinions, and they don’t always mesh well. You have to find your own path. You can do it. You don’t have to worry about getting lost or not finding your way. You know the way, and if you want tips from those of us who can see the full map, we’re always here to opine, understanding that you’re still the one in charge. You’re still the one who gets to make all the decisions. You don’t have to do anything we suggest and we might offer differing opinions about what might be best for you. You can do all of it or none of it. Some of the choices will provide bigger lessons than others. Some of the choices might seem harder than others, but they’re all good choices. There is no bad choice for you, because you’re not in this world to make painful choices. You are here to enjoy this life.
I can read every book, and it’s so amazing. Great new books are being written, I understand how you find it overwhelming. It is also a care for you to consider what information you want to put in your brain, because you’re so sensitive. Others aren’t affected viscerally as you are. They’re more numbed to the violence than you are. It’s sad to see humans walking around with tough outer shells that are full of bad things. It’s part of the ‘shift’ as some call it. Many things will change, and it’s an exciting time. We’re enjoying watching and helping from this side. You can do much if you choose to do so, but it will involve risk, as all things do. Getting out of bed involves some risk—as does staying in bed. Both have their own inherent risks and each morning you decide which risk you’re going to take, when you either stay in bed or get out and move on to other risks. But risk isn’t a ‘bad’ word. It’s a word that is filled with potential. Risk is so wonderful because it can involve such great rewards—regardless of the outcome.
