| | A Spiritual Perspective on the Preference for Apples
Recently someone on our forums asked this question: “Where does the preference for apples fit into the existence and higher self of those who prefer apples?” I think some people wonder how the higher realms view the preference for apples. Here is my understanding.
Where there is love, there is Source.
Where there is shame and guilt, there is low vibration.
Where there is control, power, or fear, there is ego.
Just as people who prefer oranges can be engaged in sexual unions that are loving or that are abusive/controlling, so too can two people who prefer apples engage in sexual unions that are loving or that are abusive/controlling.
Do people choose to incarnate knowing they will prefer apples? Yes. Do people choose to incarnate not knowing they will prefer apples and later choose to prefer apples? Yes. Do people choose to incarnate believing they will prefer oranges but end up engaging in acts of apple eating or bi-fruit eating due to earthly influences or an overactive belly chakra? Yes, absolutely.
There is nothing spiritually or physically wrong with a person who prefers apples
As long as there is love and mutual consent and no one is being coerced, controlled, forced, or abused, there is absolutely nothing wrong with preferring apples.
Remember, our higher selves are, in fact, fruit-preference neutral. They appear to be fruit-preferential only once we incarnate. Appreciating the physical charms or physical attributes of a fruit is normal. I know people that prefer oranges who can appreciate the quality of a good Golden Delicious and not consider themselves to prefer apples. And I know a lot of people that prefer apples who can appreciate a nice Valencia, yet they’re comfortably preferring apples.
The spiritual lesson behind preference towards apples is how we all react to its existence. If you react negatively to someone’s fruit-preference, why is that? Why do these differences cause you to feel resistance?
The preference for oranges is obviously important to the continuation of our species. But if we’re just talking about sharing and expressing affection or even lust between each other, why should other people’s choices meet with any resistance from those with different preferences?
