Bitter & Sweet - An Insight from M.N. Hopkins

For the physical body,  bitterness is often a catalyst to health and sweetness is often a catalyst to sickness.

For the emotional body,  the opposite is true.  Sweetness promotes health and bitterness promotes sickness.

For Spirit,  bitter and sweet are just a part of the human experience.  In a sense from a Soul's perspective,  we take the bitter with the sweet.

Knowing this, change is a matter of changing one's point of reference.   Bitter or sweet being beneficial or harmful or neutral depending on where we are viewing from.

M.N. Hopkins

Note:  I was thinking about a person who was so bitter about life and not achieving what he believed should be his role in this world or better said,  not having others accept him as an advisor or guru.   I reflected on unrealistic expectations and ego directed thinking and the relationship between bitter and sweet popped into my head.  Many healing remedies are bitter whereas sweets can lead to illness. On the emotional level it is quite the opposite.  As far as Spirit, it's all a part of life in this world.  I thought about it some and wrote down some thoughts last night and this morning and the above insight is the result.

Interesting and good reflections!
I also think in life that we always get what we need (from an higher perspective), but that might not always correlate to what we want (from an human perspective), and then I believe bitterness can be a result when one only see everything that happens from yan human petspective. Just a thought and some personal experience.

Kindest regards!
