Receiving Personal Revelation: Like a spiritual IV

For behold, thus saith the Lord God:
I will give unto the children of men line upon line,
precept upon precept, here a little and there a little,
and blessed are those who hearken unto my precepts,
.... for they shall learn wisdom,
for unto him that receiveth I will give more."
2 Nephi 28:30

My wife had surgery yesterday.This surgery was harder than most since it involved not just my wife, but the loss of her past 3 month pregnancy. We have been comforted and blessed and have felt everyone's love and support during this difficult loss. Thank you for all of your prayers.

I took this picture of my wife's IV yesterday before her surgery. "IV" stands for Intravenous therapy (it also is the Roman number for 4. ) Doctors use IVs on/in their patients in order to inject liquid substances directly into the veins. It is the fastest way to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body.

An IV is usually the first thing that a patient recieves and is also the last thing that is taken off in post-op. It is one of the ways to keep the patient alive. It is constant.

Similar to the IV that helps sustain life in the physical body (especially during times of affliction)... Do we need a Spiritial IV in our life?. Are we even hooked up? If you look at the photo.. the bag of fluid could be compared to All Truth, All Knowledge.. All light that eminates from our Father in Heaven. We, as mortals are only able to absorb so much... thus the smaller container which uses the "drip system"... (line upon line. precept upon precept). If we take in this "light"... we will receive more. Much of what I see today is that most people are connected to other things. Their IV's are not hooked in to the spiritual, but the temporal (mostly through electronic gadgets).
