Jellyfish live in the sea, some fresh water, and are found in all oceans. They don’t have a brain, but use their tentacles to sting. Even though most stings are harmless, the sting from a box jellyfish can be very painful and sometimes kill. Box jellyfish are almost transparent. Although the word is mentioned in their name, jellyfish are not a fish, instead of schools a group of jellyfish are called a “bloom,” “swarm,” or “smack.” A large bloom can feature over 100,000 jellyfish. They look a little like umbrellas, can be large, brightly colored, and are often transparent and nearly invisible to the human eye. From here flows the spiritual inspiration of the jellyfish.
We have heard quotes such as “Oh, death where is your sting,” and the sting we feel is in the primal instincts of the human animal. The divine presence within our soul is like a jelly fish, stinging the ugliness of flesh and blood turmoil for the purpose of creating in us spiritual fruitfulness, peace, love for life, light, and positive energy in what we do and say. As the primitive nature of beastly urges feel the sting of negative behavior, the spiritual fruit will begin to blossom in what we think, feel, and do. In that light, the sting from the divinity of the soul works to create patience, self-control, perseverance, faith, joy, goodness, love, goodwill, kindness, peace, meekness, and gentleness.
The spiritual jellyfish stings the primal instincts of the human animal to create healthy desires. We all know about the sting of unhealthy drinking or eating habits and our society is now health conscious to bring about self-control in our habits, perseverance to maintain a healthy practices, and patience during unhealthy temptation. Likewise, the same health-consciousness applies to the air we breathe, the amount of sleep we need, and even regularity and comfort in our time of elimination.
The spiritual jellyfish stings the primal instincts of the human animal to create safety in our environment. A safe and secure environment permeates our society everywhere we turn, at work, in the schools, at home, during sports activity, and even playtime for toddlers. The sting of bodily injury, domestic abuses, and chaotic circumstances works to create in us a desire for peace, meekness, and gentleness within our lives from day to day.
OUR PLACE OF BELONGING
The spiritual jellyfish stings the primal instincts of the human animal to create love in our place of belonging. We all desire a place we can belong where there is tolerance for differences, compassionate love for one another, acceptance of the fruitfulness that lives within, and sensual intimacy through gentle hugs, kisses, and smiles. The hurtful sting of hatred, intolerance, exclusion, and sexual abuses works within us to bring about desires for love, goodwill, and kindness within our social interactions.
The spiritual jellyfish stings the primal instincts of the human animal to create light to see our divine worth. Recognizing our self-worth begins by being aware of the divinity of our inner being, esteeming that inner presence with supreme reverence, and praising that spirtual source within the lives of others. The primal instincts of the human animal often feels the sting of ridicule, humiliation, and degrading rumors which begins to create desires for the divine light that shines on the fruitfulness, tranquility, life, light, and positive energy that exists in one another.
The spiritual jellyfish stings the primal instincts of the human animal to instill positive energy in the expression of our identity. The attitude of what we say and do relates to who we feel we are on the inside and becomes the expression of our identity, therefore we want optimism to flow from that conveyance. The sting within the worldly nature of flesh and blood comes when there is despair, pessimism, and evilness towards the person we feel we are, but works within us to bring about faith, joy, and goodness in our self-expression for the person we are.
We can assess that the spiritual jellyfish stings the ugliness of primal instincts of the human animal to create spiritual fruitfulness within what we think, feel, and do. The diagnosis is that without the diminishing of primitive instincts civilization becomes chaotic with hate, conflict, despair, and fatal endings. Therefore, we plan to live from the softness of the jelly-like moistness of the soul to create positive civil attitudes from person to person. We implement that plan by allowing the divine spiritual presence to work within us by stinging primal attitudes while giving life to fruitfulness, peace, life, light, and positive energy. We are successful when patience, self-control, and perseverance works within us during those stinging moments to allow love, peace, faith, and perseverance to blossom from our soul.
