A spirit teacher shares His understanding of ageless wisdom.
A simple seeker was enjoying a warm and misty afternoon
beneath gently moving foliage. The trees shaded her from
direct sunlight, or would have, if the bright sun had been
able to reach her North facing patio at this time of day.
Fortunately, for her, her neighbours across the hall would
be dealing with summer heat while she enjoyed the breeze.
That thought distracted her from a message the trees were
sending to her. Their branches and leaves were anticipating
rain and were quivering with delight at the expected

It’s not if, but when.
Then, when …?
Seventeen, The Star, although I do wish she didn’t expose
her nakedness. Clothes would express a sense of modesty.
Perhaps she wishes to express transparency.
But, to express it so obviously suggests that her nakedness
could be a cover-up in reverse; a pretense at transparency,
rather than the real thing.
What does that mean?
Could it mean agreement?
Perhaps, a pretense at agreement.
