Within us is a chamber that will open to infill the soul with essential qualities. Alternatively, that chamber could remain shut and not allow us to experience inner fruitfulness. The divine presence that lives within us is the operator, or controller, that decides whether it opens or not. When we honor that inward deity with reverence, our inner being opens to pour into us spiritual rewards. If we are hostile to the source of all the goodness that lives in us, then we close from within and divine qualities are not within us.
The spiritual fruits are the moist softness that infill the soul with divine qualities. If we are dry and hardened with attitudes of hatred, unkindness, or ill wishes to others, then we are desolate of tenderness. We should desire an instilling of love, kindness, and goodwill. Likewise, if we feel turmoil, harshness, or aggression, we are lacking fruitfulness within ourselves. We should wish to absorb peace, meekness, and gentleness.
Sometimes we may feel there is no hope for tomorrow and that evil is too overwhelming. In that case, sadness fills our inner being and we are missing needed qualities. That is when we should desire the inflow of faith, goodness, and joy. There are times when you want to quit trying to be fruitful, impatience creeps in and you lose self-control with circumstances; you have become dry within. In those times, we need to search ourselves to find the tenderness that fosters perseverance, patience, and self-control.
The infilling of our soul with divine qualities is necessary to keep us healthy and respectful of life. If we are lacking comfort in our minds and emotions, our behaviors respond negatively. That happens because what we think, feel, and how we respond is hostile to the deity of our inner being. We need an infilling of spiritual fruit to comfort us mentally, emotionally and behaviorally. When we honor the divine goodness within us, our inner being opens to release comforting fruit in our thoughts, emotions, and behavior.
The infilling of our soul with divine qualities is necessary to keep us feeling safe and secure. If we are lacking inner peace, tranquility, and calm, then that will cause conflict, harshness, and aggression to transfer through us. That happens because our inward attitudes are hostile, and at conflict, with the deity of our inner being. We need an influx of spiritual fruit to restore peace, meekness, and gentleness. When we honor the divine goodness within us, we open ourselves to receive the tranquil rewards of the spirit’s fruit.
The infilling of our soul with divine qualities is necessary to establish our belonging within a place of loving acceptance. If we are lacking the tolerance that kindness and goodwill allow, then we become hateful, unkind, and intolerant. That happens because we alienate the divinity within us with attitudes of hatred within our sentiments. We need to invite the inflow of the spiritual fruit to restore harmony and social love to our inner being. When we are reverent to the divine goodness within us, we are open to welcome the spirit’s fruit of love.
The infilling of our soul with divine qualities is necessary to feel our own worth, and to esteem others. If we lack a sense of faith, joy, and goodness about ourselves, then we may feel hopeless and depressed, like an evil omen. That happens when we deem the divinity within us to be nothing special, and of no value. We should honor the inflow of the spiritual fruit as being of supreme value within our egos, and others. When we honor the divine goodness within us, we open ourselves to optimism within our self-evaluation, and regard of others.
The infilling of our soul with divine qualities is necessary to make our self-expression mutually beneficial. If we are lacking patience, self-control, and goodwill in our words and deeds, our communication becomes impulsive with ill intent. That happens because we are expressing our opposition to the deity that lives within us. We need to invite the inflow of the spiritual fruit so that what we say and do edify one another with encouragement to do well. When we are reverent to the divine goodness within us, we are open to welcome pleasant communication.
Some people do not want us to open to the infilling of the soul through the spiritual fruit. They want to close us and induce irreverence to the divinity of the inner being. Their intent is to cause anger and sadness nor relate with you in a way that would fill you with faith, joy, peace or any other divine fruit. They refuse to accept the inflow of the spirit’s goodness.
Reservoirs of people exist who exert effort to close the inner being to the divine goodness within us. They do not want us to fill with the spiritual fruit. The attitude that exit from them is negativism to divine experiences. They attempt to fill your inner being with desires for materialism, and fleshly gratification. People who are desolate within themselves transfer negativism to the fruitful soul. They have an intense dislike of those who are full of divine qualities.
Very often, praise and esteem are withheld from those who love the infilling of the goodness that resides within. Because they feel unworthy, they begin to close themselves to thoughts and expressions that convey fruitful emotions. Their soul becomes desolate of qualities such as love, peace, joy, and faith. They develop an acceptance among those who intend to close off the inflow of the spiritual fruit.
Susceptible people are not aware of the nature of the aggravation, difficulties, and hostilities that confront them. The closure of their inner being to the spirit’s fruit is likely. They do not associate the consistent negativism of others with the divine qualities that are within themselves. Through that association, they would see that some people’s pessimism correlates with the appearing of fruitful qualities. We can interrupt the cycle that causes the closing of our soul to the fruit of the spirit. We do that by being reverent to the divine goodness that exists within us. Then we welcome the qualities of kindness, love, goodwill, peace, meekness, gentleness, faith, joy, perseverance, self-control, and patience.
We can assess that a reverence for the divine presence within us will open our soul to the infilling of the spiritual fruit. The diagnosis is that some people want to close off that inner presence to stop the fruit of the spirit from flowing into us. Even so, we plan to welcome the qualities of love, peace, faith, and perseverance. That comes through reverence of the divine goodness within us. We implement that plan by honoring the soft and moist tenderness in us. That is of the deity, the producer of fruitful qualities. We can evaluate how we are doing because there will be an open channel within us that flows with spiritual fruit.
