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.
