What We Have Learned
Hello there my spiritual friend,
For many of you, we have been together for quite sometime, and for other not so much time and yet all the same, it has been just as beneficial.
This is the time of year, that we come to reflect on what it is the have learned, from all that we have garnered. This is not only an essential measure in our ascent up the monk’s ladder, but also to appreciate what we are becoming through this transformation.
Now may I point out that you should not dismiss these issues as mere fodder, but as items which have caused you to be what it is that you are and the effects it canvassed over those you cast it upon.
During these times, may I also suggest that you come to recognize what it is that you need for this new encounters and what it is that you provide to others. For those who have been with me, each year, there is another component to be accessed and utilized from the pall, to the hammer of determination, the mittens of mercy, the key to the chamber of confessions, etc. In this year, the accessing of discernment.
Now before you query and examine this statement, let me expound a bit. This notion of discernment is quite vast. Discernment is one of the gifts from the Holy Spirit, as outlined by Paul, in his Epistle to the Corinthians.
My spiritual friend, there are measures and experiences which one must encounter before the effectual “tapping into”, become innate. This can only be achieved as one avails themselves openly and honestly unto the Holy Spirit as directed.
May these words be avail to you insight needed to propel you ever up the ladder and ever deeper into the relation God desires to have with you.
