Are You Already Made?

Within the hardness of the inner being are qualities that some people consider to have already been made. The attitude of already being made is equivalent to pouring cement into a garden to make a parking lot. Alternatively, the garden that is alive with new blossoms is like the person who blooms with spiritual fruit.

A belief that we have already been made affects our attitude relating to the deity in us. Within the hardness of that attitude exist negativism to the divine presence that lives within. That fabricated hardness includes thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that oppose a relationship with the goodness of our inner being. However, through the soft, moist, and tender qualities that exist in us, we have a proper relationship with the supernatural presence. Our inner softness “unmakes” the hardness that once was the barrier to the deity within.

A belief that we have already been made affects our attitude relating to the blossoms of the spiritual fruit. The hardness of that attitude impedes the fruit of the spirit from developing from within. That fabricated hardness includes thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that regard soft and moist qualities as undesirable traits. They respond to the tenderness of love, peace, faith, and perseverance with negativism. The hardness of those who feel they are made have no consideration for the attitudes that create fellowship, such as goodwill and kindness. Their behaviors are harsh and domineering to meek and gentle characteristics. When a person feels joyful, and full of goodness, some want to depress them with bad intentions. From their fabricated  hardness comes hostilities to the spirit of self-control, and patience for inner fruitfulness. Even so, those hard attitudes are “unmade” through the soft, moist, and tender qualities of the spiritual fruit.

SUMMARY
Some people will deny that being “made” results in the hardening of the inner being, where unfruitful attitudes exist. Their intent is to foster anger, sadness, and pessimism towards the divine presence, the source of the spiritual fruit. They refuse to relate mutually with the soft, moist qualities that exist in us, because that is not what they “made.” However, it's necessary to accept that the softness of the fruit of the spirit “unmakes” the hardness. That awareness is the only way to live in peace with what the divine presence prepares for us.

There are reservoirs of people who consider themselves already “made,” or assume they have the ability to “make” others. The attitudes that exit from them are from the hardness of their inner being. They are pessimistic about the spiritual fruit, and exert arrogance over soft, moist qualities. Those attitudes transfer through people who are willing to impede the blossoms of the fruit of the spirit, and block the union with the divine presence within the soul.

The attitude of already being made enters into us because of a desire to feel valued, or respected. When our attitudes are being made, praise comes through materialism or physical pleasures. When earthly rewards replace the inner rewards of spiritual fruit, the inward self becomes hardened. Within that hardness, rewards are given for being made. Then, a sense of acceptance is felt among those who are hostile to those considered “unmade.“

Those who are susceptible to the tactics of those creating hardened attitudes are unaware. They do not know that the softness within themselves thrives with spiritual fruit, from that divine deity that lives within. They feel appreciation for gifts of materialism, while neglecting the tenderness of the soul. In that hardness, they are considered made.

We can interrupt the cycle of hardening thoughts, emotions, and deeds to the divine presence, which rewards us with spiritual fruit. We do that by responding to hostilities through the soft tenderness that we feel within ourselves. Through those tender responses of love, peace, faith, and perseverance in goodness, the attitudes within the hardness become unmade.

We can assess that within the softness of the spiritual fruit, our attitudes, and responses to others, are socially oriented. They include the spirit of love, goodwill, and kindness. The diagnosis is that some people want to make attitudes by hardening the inner being with hostility to the spirit’s fruit, and the deity within. Even so, we are not responsive to pressures to be made, but live in spiritual fruitfulness from day to day. We implement that plan by allowing the fruit to blossom through the moist, soft, tenderness that exists within. We can evaluate our success because the rewards of the spiritual fruit will develop within our thoughts, emotions, and behavioral responses. That comes by honoring the divine goodness of the soul.
