Discouragement. I have no doubt we are all prone to discouragement from time to time. Probably we mostly hide it from those around us; it isn’t much fun to be around. But sometimes we admit to it, and sometimes, perhaps, we receive assistance from our friends.
Those friends are not necessarily in bodies.
When I began a WordPress blog, I titled it “I of my own knowledge,” meaning not “Look how much I know!” but, “Whatever I put here, I know firsthand.” Can’t say I have entirely lived up to that intent, but mostly. A huge percentage of my posts have been transcriptions of ILC (intuitive linked communication) sessions with the guys upstairs.
Recently I have been reposting ILC sessions (currently, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.), beginning at the point where the change in those sessions began, in late 2005. And so we roll around to the entry for Feb. 1, 2006, which deals with – discouragement!
A message in a bottle, from the self that existed nearly 13 years ago, to the self existing now. Is this not a good example of the value of writing things down? How else would I remember today thought and emotion now long past? How else would I be reminded of things that helped then, and can help now?
Lovely, helpful practice, writing.
