How can I serve

How can I serve

It’s been often said that you cannot give away what you do not have.

Most people think our resources are limited, this is not true. We live in a limitless universe, everything we want , need and desire, we already have. We live in a universe where we have unlimited resources , whether it be oil, food, health or what ever else ,we will never run out of anything. Just as Jesus turned the water into wine we can all to tap into that unlimited supply. One of the most spiritual insights or mystical secrets of life is that you already have what you need to give away.

The right thoughts and actions will always release and provide one with the things needed to make one happy, or the things we think will make us happy. We as spiritual beings , always sooner or later receive what we wish for or think about.  Words and thoughts have meaning and they do have an affect on the events that occur in our lives. 

There is an old saying, “Be careful of what you wish for, you may receive it.”

There is truth in this phrase. The Law of attraction works!

When we say ’give me’ we are imparting this message. We are saying we think we need to get something to complete ourselves or prove our worth.

Most of society teaches us to live a life of want and desire. If we struggle enough, we will become worthy and our wishes will be granted. This will lead to our lives being fulfilled and we will be held in high esteem by others.

  As with most beliefs in life, that is an illusion. We are worthy by nature of our connection with the higher consciousness. But we will not know it until we believe it on an inner level. Only by asking our higher self , or Christ Consciousness,will it become evident.

Ask the question,  “how can I serve?” The intention to serve will point you towards what you need to give. If the intention is real it also generates the will. The most successful people in life are not go getters, but go servers!

Even the most capitalist person on the planet, whether they realize it or not, is giving something for anyone who wants to receive it. They are giving an opportunity for one to create a life for themselves, by presenting that some one with a career opportunity, or investment opportunity that wouldn’t have existed if it hadn’t been for the capitalist or entrepreneur’s ability to create something of worth.

Each and every one of us need to realize that whatever we desire is already here and available to us, all that is needed is the ability to tap into the source and  act upon it.

The life you have now is a result of the way you previously thought. Change your thoughts and change your life.

To Change the World, You must change Yourself

Change the World, Change Yourself

There is much discussion today about our changing world, the world governments seem to want to change our world to where they would have complete control over our lives.

This doesn’t have to be the case, each and every one of us is in control of our destiny . Our actions, thoughts, words and deeds determine how our lives will be lived out. True there are always obstacles and challenges that arise for us to over come, however if one sticks to his or her game plan , the final outcome will be what we want or how we perceived it to be.

We each live our own reality, no two people experience a particular event in exactly the same way. This is evident in our daily lives as we communicate with the people around us and see the different reactions individuals have to the same event.

Having said that, it should be easy to see how the way we think and perceive situations determines not only the outcome of that event, but the outcome of our lives. If you want to change your world, you must change your life and how you perceive it.

The world is just a mirror of our life, the good you find in others is in you, others faults are also yours, the beauty, the possibilities,are also in you. The ancient sages all teach that in order to recognize something, you must know it. You cannot know  something if it isn’t part of you.

Realize that if someone’s actions offend you, it is because you sense that trait in yourself and you are annoyed because it is bouncing back at you and making you very uncomfortable. The same is true if you are pleased by one’s actions, take it as a compliment to yourself for possessing an admirable trait.

It is very important to “let go”.

To let go doesn’t mean that you don’t care, or that you are cutting yourself off from the situation. It just means that you turn control over to a higher power and you quit trying to arrange outcomes for others and yourself.

By doing this , your time is freed up to choosing your destiny. The universe will give you many solutions, it is your job to choose which you want. In no way do you have to select the first opportunity availed to you. Keep in mind what you really want, and wait until the right choice comes along,(go about your life, but lie like an alligator in the swamp) and when the right morsel drives by, grab it. You will know in your heart when the time is right, when the time comes, jump in and enjoy life.

Only when one has determined what is desired in their life, and thrown it out to the universe and let it go,will the universe, or God  determine what is in not only your best interest, but the best interest of everyone in your world. You will be very surprised, the outcome will be better than anything you could have imagined in your wildest dreams.

It may not happen immediately, and you may have to walk through some muddy swamps in the meantime, but the final outcome will make it all worthwhile.

Washing the Dog

Washing the Dog

A young boy, about eight years old, was at the corner “Mom & Pop”grocery picking out a pretty good size box of laundry detergent.
The grocer walked over, and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry to do.

“Oh, no laundry,” the boy said, “I’m going to wash my dog.”

“But you shouldn’t use this to wash your dog. It’s very powerful and ifyou wash your dog in this, he’ll get sick. In fact, it might even killhim.”

But the boy was not to be stopped and carried the detergent to thecounter and paid for it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him outof washing his dog.

About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The grocer asked the boy how his dog was doing.

“Oh, he died,” the boy said.

The grocer, trying not to be an I-told-you-so, said he was sorry the dogdied but added, “I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on yourdog.”

“Well,” the boy replied, “I don’t think it was the detergent that killed him.”

“Oh? What was it then?”

“I think it was the spin cycle!”

Positive Thinking

Positive Thinking

Much is being said today about hope and change . Some government leaders think they are in charge of our lives and they are the ones that can effectively “change” our lives. In some ways they are correct in thinking they can change our lives, however, most of the time, government policies only change our lives for the worse.

We as humans are the only species on the planet whose thinking is so powerful that we can change a situation by our thinking about it. How we perceive the situation , and what meaning we draw from it is more important than the event itself and will effectively create an outcome that matches our expectations .

As we think we become, these words couldn’t be more true. Many people don’t realize it but, words and thoughts have meaning and consequences, it really does matter what we think and say. The older I become, the more obvious it is to me that we do create our own reality. Every event we encounter in our life we choose to experience, whether it be consciously or unconsciously. On some level of consciousness, we volunteer for every life situation we encounter.

Once this is realized, you can effectively change your reality, this is not to say that a so called negative experience will never be encountered, instead we learn to take the challenges in stride and work to make lemonade out of lemons. Every so called negative experience can have a happy ending. 

By continuously thinking positive thoughts and focusing on the life you want, it will eventually come to pass. Results aren’t always immediately forthcoming or in the order we might like. The universe has no concept of time , and sometimes certain events need to transpire before the point we want to reach can be realized. 

Our thoughts and words are prayers, in this perspective, we are praying constantly. The universe, or God will respond to whatever we wish or think we want, so be careful, make sure it is something you desire before thinking it into reality. From my own experience , if it is something that isn’t in the grand scheme of things or not for the highest good of all concerned , it probably won’t happen, (some times God has something better in store for us than we can imagine.) Sometimes when we are not achieving something we want, it is time to let go and let be. The universe will provide what we really want.

To be on the safe side when meditating, always insert the phrase,”for the highest good for all concerned”, at the end of your prayers or meditations.

Although we can’t control every event that happens in our life , we can control our thinking of the event and thus begin to control our life.

The Preacher's Wife and the Email

The Preacher’s Wife and the E-Mail

An Illinois man left the snowballed streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida . His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail.

Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look at the monitor,let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor dead.

At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

Dearest Wife,

Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

Your Loving Husband.

P.S. Sure is hot down here.

reality

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions.

Illness

Illness

According to esoteric teachings ,  we contribute to every “illness” in our body. The body, as with everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. Our body is always listening as well as talking to us, if we will only take the time to listen we could learn a lot, not only about ourselves and our body, but about life as well. Every cell within our bodies responds to every single thought we think.

When we discover what the mental pattern is behind an illness, we have a chance to change the pattern and, therefore, the dis-ease. Most people don’t want to be sick on a conscious level, yet every dis-ease that we have is a teacher. Illness is the body’s way of telling us that there’s a false idea in our consciousness. Something that we’re believing, saying, doing, or thinking is not for our highest good. I always picture the body tugging at us saying, “Please—pay attention!” Many times we can be healed by changing our thought patterns and thinking more positive.

Sometimes people do want to be sick. In our society, we’ve  made illness a legitimate way to avoid responsibility or unpleasant situations. If we can’t learn to say no, then we may have to invent a dis-ease to say no for us.

There was an interesting report a few years back. It stated that only 30 percent of patients follow their doctor’s instructions. According to Dr. John Harrison, author of the fascinating book Love Your Disease, many people go to doctors only to have their acute symptoms relieved—so that they can tolerate their dis-ease. It’s as if an unwritten, subconscious agreement exists between doctor and patient: The doctor agrees not to cure the patient if the patient pretends to do something about his or her condition. Also in this agreement, one person gets to pay, and the other becomes the authority figure…and so, both parties egos are satisfied.True healing involves body, mind, and spirit. I believe that if we“cure” an illness yet do not address the emotional and spiritual issues that surround that ailment, it will only manifest again.
