Myths and Misconceptions
There are many famous things to come out of Scotland, Scotch Whiskey and of course Robert Burns or Rabbie as we call him in Scotland. Robert Burns was one of the most famous poets and inspirational writers of his time and is still known worldwide with auld Lang syne being sung at many a New Year party. Robert Burns is Scotland’s best-loved bard and Burns Suppers have been held in his honour for over 200 years on the 25th January.
The celebration starts with the pipers piping in the haggis which is then toasted with scotch whiskey. The haggis, another of Scotland’s famous animals can be found in the Scottish highlands were they are born and bred. The wild haggis have 2 legs shorter than the others to help get them round the hills quicker and keep their balance were as the farmed haggis have both legs the same size as they are kept in large open fields were they can roam free. I know this is true because I read it in a book by a native American Indian called un~kn~o~wn.
Scotland like any other country has many myths and misconceptions and people can be too quick to believe things that they are told or things that they have read. As a spiritualist and a working medium there is one method I have been taught by tutors and that is the KISS affect. Keep It Simple Stupid and I believe that was written with me in mind. I look at spirit and spirituality as a circle of love, from spirit, through spirit, to spirit and back to spirit.
Often we forget the first word in spirituality: Spirit. By the time we have grounded our roots to the earth’s core, opened up our chakras if we don’t forget the colours and what order they are in, donned our many cloaks of protection, bubbled up and then take our awareness out into the universe avoiding firstly air-planes and then satellites, spirit have packed up and gone home. We have then taken on more baggage than when we first started out and lost our way on our spiritual path. Just like your spiritual path even in life itself we can take on board things that can lead us off the beaten track just because someone said this is how it has to be done or we read it in a book and end up worse off than when we started.
Once we learn to take the myths and misconceptions from our thoughts and daily actions and just look at life as it is and in a simple manner then we will find our lives moving at such a faster pace with nothing holding us back.
