Practice containment in a manner that protects your energy from outside influences and allows for a greater connection to your inner self, your inner knowledge and wisdom, and to the spirit self. In containment will come the inner quiet that is conducive to a spiritual experience, that will offer a place for contemplation and communion with that which is great within the self, great in the sense that it is individual and special yet also universal and infinite. Seek the solitude that will allow for containment and practice getting to know the contained self.
Remain grounded even while you seek spiritual awareness, for spiritual awareness will do no good if it is not grounded in reality. The reality of life on Earth is your true reality, where you have come to work on and evolve the self. The reality of spiritual awareness is equally important but only in that it be used to enhance the work of the life you are in. So keep a good balance as you seek to enhance yourself in both material and spiritual ways. Let one work with the other to both teach and advance you and let neither one nor the other dominate.
True prosperity is the accumulation of knowledge. Knowledge is knowing based on experience. Experience is the ability to go with the flow, to allow the self to be affected by life’s unfolding. An accumulation of knowledge by experience of life results in a sense of prosperity that is fulfilling and gratifying. Do not be afraid of life but embrace it fully, both the good and the bad, for that is the way to fulfillment and a sense of peace that is satisfying, leaving the door open to an eagerness for more. Life, enjoy it!
Remain contained and resolve inner issues within the self rather than project them onto others. It’s not enough to say you understand something when you really don’t, so take it inward and ponder it until you do understand it at a deeper level. When you assume without deeper contemplation you make the mistake of taking on another’s ideas. Better to avoid conflict by deeper contemplation within the Self, for the Self knows everything. You just have to go to the Inner Self to discover this.
Let not the worries of the world intercept your search for freedom, your search for meaning, your search for connection to the divine within. You are spirit first and that is what matters most, your efforts to find your connection to that spirit so you can nurture and know it on the deepest of levels. Once you do that the worries of the world will not seem so desperate, for you will understand the balance that keeps everything in motion, the necessity for change, and how a part of the oneness of it all you really are. So stay calm and carry on the deeper search within.
