“Why did you come here today?

Why are you reading these words?
Who sent you? And for what reason?
Ask yourself these questions now.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

**************************** 

 

“Are you the bacteria the world needs,

or what cleanses it?”

 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************

 

 

“If every being is a teacher of God,

then every being must be a demonstration of God,

an expression of God,

a demonstration of Life,

an expression of Life.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************       

 

 

“In those from whom I learn nothing,

is not anything I would learn or keep for myself.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************       

 

 

“Could your Inner Teacher speak to you

from outside yourself,

if you are afraid to hear It inside yourself?”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************       

 

 

“The Inner Teacher resides there.

That is why It is called an INNER Teacher.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************    

 

“Do you hear your Inner Teacher through my words?”

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************    

 

 

One says to me,

I do not need to listen to you, or the Inner Teacher.

I have God”.

 

How idiotic and asinine is that?

 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************    

 

    “Who would avoid going or looking inside themselves?

 

And why?”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************    

 

 

“If I follow the example of others,

I can be sure I will wind up like them.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************

 

“Is the ‘HS’, Holy Spirit, so powerless that

It needs ME to provide to IT worldly possessions?”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************

 

     “If the Inner Teacher is inside each one, who needs to look elsewhere?”


Desert Spirit

 “Life defies what limits attempt to impose on it.”

 “It is easy to become an expert on the experiences of others.

 

It is difficult to LIVE the experiences others have demonstrated."


 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************

 

 

“A demonstration is far superior to

the observation of the demonstration.”

 

 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************

 

 

 

“If the pot is not heating the wood pellets

it is not because the heating element is not producing heat.

 

It is because the pot must be cleaned out of

spent pellets, and burnt ash.”

 

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

****************************

 

 

“What you perceive to be a problem

you did not see was the cause.

 

And the solution would have been one of effort and cost.

 

In a perceived problem, investigation is essential

so that cost and effort do not become part of the solution.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

 

 

****************************

 

 

“Prayer is a reminder to yourself

of your contact WITH and relationship TO the Unseen.

 

God does not need your prayers.

 

But YOU need your prayers as

a constant reminder to yourself of

your relationship to the Creator.

 

For you have taught yourself

how to forget your relationship to the Creator.”

 

Desert Spirit

 

****************************

 

"Poison ivy does not care if you get a rash.

 A scorpion does not care if you die from its sting.

And I do not care if my energy seems insulting to you.

If you do not wish to receive poison ivy rashes,

you need to stay out of the forest."

Desert Spirit 

****************************

 

 

”Many have a big mouth, but hardly any are ever quiet.

 

Many have ideas, but hardly any have no ideas.

 

Many speak of the problems in the world,

But hardly any speak of their own inner despair.”


Desert Spirit
