I was thinking about this thread today. I like it but it relies on the assumption that all this is real There is no spoon
What a brilliant way to put it Swanny.
I'm assuming the spoon is a metaphor for the connection to this reality – providing what is commonly accepted as 'reality' and thus 'truth'? Proof? And nourishment?
This is my
view on that in accordance with my own journey, for what it's worth.
These golden 'spoons', or links into the hidden realms, are not necessarily for everyone to be 'spoon fed' with. To gain the nourishment they contain takes patience and correct intention. At a personal level they have to be earned, through years of work and correct focus as what is learned in this way is personalized to suit the seeker and never
a waste of time and energy as the truth of life in this multidimensional reality is vast and full of fascinating surprises that can teach not only us but all around us. The pains and joys of those experiences in the inner realm as are just as brutal or fulfilling as anything that occurs here for all to witness, so just as pertinent to our growth. And that growth does become obvious over the years.
But the wonderful thing is that there have been many times when some lesson I've learned through my inner experiences has helped a loved one to find an answer that they have been seeking also, most often at a psychological level which is where the growth is most obvious eg learning about our commonly held inner demons that hold us all back in one way or another and our potentials. But also in the outside world of experience in a way that gives that ‘proof’ to my nearest and dearest who’ve had the patience to put up with me while I take this journey, as it appears to occur for any who take the inner journey of learning, including Lionhawk.
Some of the old-timers here may have read some of my ‘Elementals: Maestros of Manifestation’ thread and I’m sure many thought “Oh, it’s just her imagination. Nothing of value here.” But the ‘spoon’ I was given to feed from during those experiences by the Elementals/Nature Spirits and others that I’ve encountered in my inner world did, in time, manifest here in amazing ways for me and those close to me to witness in this reality, giving them peace and joy the same as it has for me. As an example, my current ‘astral’ friends are a group of Kobolds. (I ended up asking them what they were as there have been so many different types of little beings that I’ve spent time with over the years that I just lazily gave them my own identifiers. I had to look Kobolds up on Wiki.
) Anyway, just a few examples of how the wonderful elixir on the ‘spoon’ I’ve been given has been poured into this realm of being by these dear little friends of mine follow. They have been very helpful to me in small but wonderful ways. They find/return things to me that I’ve lost. They cause plants that I love to flower out of season. They keep all the pests (eg flies, mozzies) away from where we like to sit outside. They help me to understand the natural world around me. And even, oddly, most recently they gave energy to a fluorescent light fitting that I read under that was burning out (flashing on and off, only giving ‘grey’ light) to keep it going for a few weeks until I could get it fixed, haha. “It’s just energy” he said.
Anyway, the point is that many of the beings that exist in the hidden realms are just as ‘real’ there as those we see here are. But they might only exist there or they may be able to move between realms when they choose to. On that note, many of the Nature Spirits choose not to move into this realm anymore because life has become so toxic here (including humans) to those of their kind. And then there are those who choose to work behind the scenes of course to carry out their deeds eg the ETs?
My interest is in human psychology and the natural world of our Mother, not Science, History, hidden technology, ETs or anything of that ilk, so my ‘spoon’ was tailored to me. Brook and Morpheus Lionhawk’s spoon would be tailored to them and their innate talents, needs and interests to evolve in the way they need to and to serve (on an inner and/or outer level of being). I know, in having listened to what they’ve shared over the years, that they too have had their physical world markers that give ‘proof’ to their inner world experiences. For the individual it often takes patience and work for these to appear and also for those whom they give the gift to of sharing their journey with them. My guess is that it’s much the same for many others who speak out about their experiences with what’s hidden from the general public and not in common view here. It’s all tailored to who you are, the work you’re prepared to put in and what our Higher Selves wish us to achieve personally and/or socially, including at a worldwide level, with what we learn.
For some it is easily demonstrable and for others not so much. Sometimes it can be viewed by the five senses by any and all, sometimes only for a selected few, sometimes only by those with extrasensory perceptions and sometimes only by the experiencer personally. But I believe that if we take the time to really listen to what others have to say that we are all benefited at least psychologically, on inner levels, -- that our awareness is expanded and more thus becomes possible in our own world of potential experience.
We ‘sparks’ are all subtly ‘fed’ by the higher realms of being and each of us are given our own unique perspective on Life to fill in the ‘bigger picture’ for all. As regards the nourishment we choose to take from the banquet made available, I know I would be a hypocrite to dismiss the experiences of others as food for the Soul as I know my own journey has been dismissed as mere ‘imagination’ by others. (I used to wonder if that was true myself at times. But ALWAYS I could see the benefit of what I was learning as I was changing, growing, finding more peace with life.) And don’t ‘they’ say that there is nothing that can be created/experienced that doesn't already exist somewhere in some realm of being?
Sorry, I ended up rambling when my initial intent was not to do so. It’s all just my monkey-mind opinion so take it for what it’s worth to you. Oh and sorry if I misinterpreted your metaphor Swanny.
