SPIRITUAL THOUGHTS AND OBSERVANCES BY PAPA HECTOR
ON WHY YOUR LIFE IS NOT WHERE YOU WANT IT TO BE!
Lwa, Saints, Spirits, Misterios and Even God are here to guide and direct you. . . not control you. You either take their advice/direction or you don’t . . . . but as a result of your actions are the consequences. They are not here to live your life for you or to make everything a bed of roses all the time, they are here to help you, guide you, direct you but not control all aspects of your life. That is why God gave you free will.
So many people think that when the Spirits speak, and they tell you what to do, one can pick and choose what to do. They want to pick the parts that they like, or are convenient, comfortable and easy, and not do the parts that they find hard, difficult, require work or effort. If that is the case, then you cannot blame the Spirit for the effects of your choices. For you are the cause of those effects.
You are in the driver’s seat in your life. It is you who controls what you are going to do and when . . . .it is you who makes the decisions. So stop blaming others when things go wrong, when things don’t go your way or don’t work out . . . you set the stage and the tone for what happens, it is no one’s fault but your own.
If you don’t want to change your life, no amount of spiritual work can change it for you. If you don’t want to improve yourself, no spirit can force you to do so. In life, you are dealt a set of cards (like in poker) some you can change out, others you can’t and you just have to deal with them and learn to work with them. Everything is not resolvable or can be made to how you want it, some things just are. Learning to accept this and work with it, is a sign of true spiritual growth . . . .
Many are quick to blame the Houngan/Mambo/Priest when they don’t get what they want or are not living life on cloud 9, but at the end of the day, the Priest can only help you, in the end, as I stated before . . . you are the one who makes the decisions and choices in your life, you are the driver. The Priest can only work with what you give him. If you give him lemons, he makes you lemonade . . . if you give him a limo, he gives you a limo service. . . .
Also. . . . . Priests, Houngans, Mambos, Awos, etc . . . they have lives of their own to lead and their own path to follow, also need to continue on their path of growth and evolution. That means that they cannot be there for you all the time, some things you must deal with on your own, they are not there to be used, abused, harassed and hounded with your issues, as if they have nothing else to do . . . if you really love your priest, you will give him/her time to have his/her own life. Especially since 95% of his/her time is dedicated to helping others. Giving him 5% to himself is the least you can do.
I believe all Spiritual People and people going on to be on the spiritual path should really read the Gospel According to Spiritism. . . . it will give you a firm foundation of Spiritual things, a great understanding and will help you when you go to seek spiritual help and clue you into the reality of what can be done and what cannot.
