I've been called so many things, the list is too long for the internet. :-)
I've been called BC, Bee (but that's already taken by someone else on
this list :-) and assorted other things. I suppose B works okay. I
save Baltimore for legal documents.

Part of being alive is being open and experiential with all those 
factors. Our bodies aren't burdens in this consciousness. They are a 
vehicle for learning. In this life, we can't be entirely transparent
to Will, Love and Wisdom...but it is our job to reconcile our physical
lives to those things.

Being really alive is far from "easy." Granted, the giving in to the
prevailing style makes life a lot easier...but not nearly as fulfilling. 
It requires a denial of who and what we are. We are spiritual beings
having and earthly experience -- not earthly beings having a spiritual

Good idea. It certainly won't get you anywhere to blame. We all came to
this planet having agreed to our experiences -- the good along with
the bad.

It's essential. We can't do it alone because Spirit uses other people
to teach us.

Mutual recognition of what?

Fear of the unknown, I agree with. I am not sure about depression or
false pride. I guess, for me, all of this is just so natural...and I
am totally aware that every human being on the planet comes with the
"software" to do it. He or she just has to make the choice...and it
*is* that simple.

There is no separateness though. If you can imagine it (I don't know
if you are visual or not), it's almost like that movie "Stargate" where
there is a veil...and we can go through that veil...and *that's* the
scary part...because it brings up so much unfamiliarity (on a conscious
level anyway.) Our unconscious and Higher Selves communicate with the
other side of that veil constantly. We can go back and forth with
reasonable ease...once we get the hang of it. 

Does any of this resonate for you?
