Working for God not Self

From a young age it seems our only real directive is to get on and do well at school: get a good job, buy a house and get married, build a family and go on holidays, eat out, and generally succumb to life.

This enjoyment of life seems to stem from money and how much you have of it, or not. Many profess to being happy without it, meanwhile others need to feather their nest with as much as possible so that they can eventually leave the rat race and do what they want to do.

For a large part of my life I have lived with that inner struggle to get wealthy – otherwise you are missing out, you can’t keep up. Feeling like the rat at the back of the queue, you get very good at inventing and finding means to accelerate yourself to the front of the pack.

I get this image of a rat running and jumping across the top of a long line of rats all shuffling forward, which seems to me to be apt and very close to the truth for me.

How many of us have run on this treadmill? And how many have we trodden on?

What is interesting to note is that this agenda isn’t there when we first arrive, born back into the world. Landing as we do, we come unclothed and unhindered by the material goods that we then quickly learn to engage with.

Is it possible that at some point we start to replace our missing feelings of love with ‘stuff’ to own, in order to fill the gap?

Recently I had a session with an Esoteric Practitioner that allowed me to feel how much the need of gaining more has been such a drain, not only on my physical body, but also on my energy levels – feeling the never-ending wells that have literally drained me of who I am and who I came here to be.

I left the session having a deep sense of belonging, knowing that I was here for a very different purpose to the $$$ –– the $$$ security that we have all been taught makes us someone or something.

I sat with myself and felt that I work for a very different purpose.

I work for God, not myself.

It dawned on me that we are all here to bring the presence of God to all that we do and everyone we know.

Not by preaching, but by Being – simply who we truly are.

Our first job is about being us, with no expectations whatsoever.

The pay is amazing, for we get eternal support. We get to step into the grandness and glory of US in every moment, if we so choose.

I am shown things about life constantly if I stay open and keep saying YES to the work that is constantly provided.

Reflections and guidance through nature and other people are the on the job training that is such a learning and deepening. Every step of the way God has been there waiting for all of us, patiently, and without judgment.

The abundance of life is there truly for everyone – there need not be a struggle.

Inside we know intimately what we can bring to the All. We just have to say YES.

Life feels very different after spending the last decade hearing, feeling and working with the teachings of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. Thank you. I appreciate the ever-deepening relationship with my Self and our Father.

  1. When we work for the All, we not only work for God but also ourselves and everyone else. No one is left out of this equation. This is true service and it is never a chore and although we sometimes may find certain aspects of this way of living challenging, in-truth it is only the letting go of a certain pre-established way of doing things that is difficult and never the work itself, which I find is always an immense joy.

  2. We live in a world where we have made at times “our father” to be someone we give our power away to. But this is our greatest fall. For we are just like our father and by doing so we ignore our own truth of where we come from – that is God.

  3. Working for self really doesn’t pay off – it may do so in money or material value but where is the fulfilment? The contentment? The settlement at the end of a day at work? This comes from something else, something within that is constantly there reminding us that life is more than what it seems.

  4. This article reminds me that, we do always work for something. All of us. There is always a drive or a motivation to work – be they practical or energetic – there is purpose behind everything. And I suppose the key here is to begin to explore one’s intent, because this will ultimately define the nature of one’s purpose – or maybe it is the other way around? I am not sure, but I do know that we turn up for work for something, and that that something is not always inclusive of love.

  5. Our purpose for being here on earth is to work for God so as to contribute to the all, but many of us choose another employer so that we can shirk this responsibility, and just take care of what is in our own back garden.

    1. Well summed up Elizabeth – exposing the fact that our creation away from God is what blinds us. Not being able to truly resolve that which we know is not true in our world today.

  6. We are led to believe that the greatest commodity in life that brings us happiness and power is money, and so we measure our degree of success and fulfillment on the amount we have. However if this were in fact true why do we have such extreme discontentment in the world and especially evident with those who have loads of money. For the truth is that there is a far greater commodity that when lived for, offers us the greatest returns and fulfillment with riches that surpass anything in the world. When we work with love, we work in connection to our Soul and with God as such with whatever we do, we are a reflection of His light on earth – illuminating that which we all are in essence.

  7. If our true purpose is in living us each day, responsibility in life takes on a whole new meaning than we have made it to be.

  8. When we open up to the fact that life is about more than stuff and really is about how we are with ourselves and how we are with people … are we evolving or are we in fact just accumulating stuff and to what end, for at the finish of life we take our quality with us, how we are with us, with our relationship with God, so why get bogged down in stuff.

  9. Beautiful Lee, I keep reading about reminders of how we come into the world with no need for security, it’s a good thing to be reminded of and how full we actually are simply being.

  10. We have all been taught that earning lots of money means we are successful. But this form of success comes with a price that leaves us feeling drained, empty and feeling not enough no matter how much we earn if it lacks purpose and love.

  11. So lovely to read this approach – that we can absolutely look at how we are living, what our purpose is and how this is always available for us to feel and connect with.

    1. Yeah we are addicted to constantly striving for more and the struggle to achieve that more. It makes no sense to ignore the teachings that show life to be quite the opposite.
