are you trying to “personally” help me??
guess, only God and You know the “personal” answer to that, eh?!
some of us talk heart-to-heart
some of us talk mind-to-mind
some of us talk heart-to-mind
some of us talk mind-to-heart
some of us talk heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind…is that it?!
i think so…(spiritual speak)
effective/personal/individual interest (agape) type of conversation/communication…(Thanks C. B.–to borrow Your expression) ‘light up the brain’ & light up the heart…it seems.
and the ears, the eyes, the senses simultaneously…working
my conversations are more than a s-t–r—e—-t—-c—-h—–i——n———–g…aka more than an individual intellectual exercise.
a deeply-meaningful process of spiritual grow ING
some recent reading…
Form a longing for the unadulterated milk of the word, so that by means of it you may grow to salvation.—1 Pet. 2:2.
Fleshly-minded people have difficulty cultivating a balanced view of material things. Why? Because their spiritual senses are dulled. (1 Cor. 2:14) Once their powers of discernment have become clouded, it becomes more difficult for them to distinguish right from wrong. (Heb. 5:11-14) As a result, some develop an uncontrolled desire for material things—a desire that can never be fully satisfied. (Eccl. 5:10) Thankfully, there is an antidote to being poisoned by materialistic thinking: a healthy dose of God’s Word, the Bible, taken on a regular basis. Just as meditating on divine truth fortified Jesus to reject temptation, so applying Bible principles helps us to fight against materialistic desires. (Matt. 4:8-10)

questions for reflections:
are my spiritual senses diluted and dulled?
are my powers of discernment clouded and foggy?
are my desires material? or spiritual?
am i fleshly minded or spiritually-minded?
my experience of my most meaningful communications/conversations…are spiritual. 🙂
