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. Yes and it is clearly shown how money never satisfies as there are people suiciding when they are very successful in life and earn good money. True joy comes from knowing ourselves in full, that we are beautiful beyond this world, have a connection with the stars and are going to go back one day to the stars as that is where we are from.

  2. It’s common to chase the $, and I can relate to having done that myself, and for a short while feeling bolstered up by it, but inevitably working is not about the money or the recognition it can bring. Because we know money cannot buy us happiness or deep contentment – this we have to discover inside of ourselves, rich or poor.

  3. ” It dawned on me that we are all here to bring the presence of God to all that we do and everyone we know.”
    How wonderful what a change from being in the ” rat race “.

  4. What a gorgeous blog. I can really feel how you have put things .. or rather what you value as a perspective in life and that it is not about things, but rather the quality in which we live and what do we bring to others. Today I have heard more and more about the continuing .. and worsening poverty everyday people in our society our facing, with many not being able to afford food and women not being able to afford sanitary towels. We cannot deny that things like this (and worse) are happening, but we can make it about love, people, true care and true quality getting the self out of the way. There is always the far bigger and grander picture there to guide us back to who we truly are.

  5. I love this Lee and all that it reminds us of, as it is our innate way of being to live our Godliness, as such all that we do is simply the hand of God moving us, through which life is enriched and our evolution maximised.

  6. Its like discovering the purpose to life is not about collecting stuff but letting go of the stuff we have energetically collected that gets in the way of us intimately knowing our inner most self and knowing that God also resides there.

  7. Thank you Lee for this powerful reminder that we are not here to struggle as individuals, but to return to living as one in true brotherhood – Working for God.
    “It dawned on me that we are all here to bring the presence of God to all that we do and everyone we know”.

  8. Being ourselves with no expectations is a big yet simple one. I know a few years back, when someone said to me, just be yourself, I wanted to hit them because I just did not know who that person was nor how to be with them. And that is after quite a bit of ‘soul searching’ and self-healing workshops. It was only when I discovered Universal Medicine and reconnected to the Ageless Wisdom again, that I worked with the fact that we are already everything from the moment we are born and that our job is to live that. Clear away what is not us, and live the everything that we are.

  9. Well, you’ve inspired me Lee to send my resume’ and cover letter direct to Heaven. It’s interesting that I came across this blog tonight after just having an identical conversation with my partner while on a walk today how I could feel that recently there have been situations at work and home that have not flowed very well and I felt that I was forcing things out of a individualistic approach, rather than trusting God and surrendering to what is needed by everyone, not just myself.

  10. There are no contradictions between working with God and being wealthy. One doesn’t follow the other necessarily but there is no contradiction. There is a contradiction between working for self and being with God, though.

  11. ‘Inside we know intimately what we can bring to the All. We just have to say YES.’ And that’s it, it’s all there when we surrender our need to own, to control and understand that we’re part of a bigger, grander whole, it’s ready and waiting, it always has been and it always will.

  12. Thank you Lee, it’s amazing realising that just living connected to and in the quality of our soul is the true purpose of life, whether we are in our job, out shopping, doing dishes or with friends, every part of life is simply about our connection to love.

  13. This is one of my all time favourite blogs Lee, we can make life about having a job, or having enough money or security but we are missing out on one of the most magical parts of life.

    1. Yes, God and complete security of the safety kind don’t quite seem to gel as we then exclude most possibilities in life.

  14. Our only purpose in life is to return to Soul – our inner godliness. All else is but a distraction fed to us to lead us off the path we would otherwise walk.

  15. “The abundance of life is there truly for everyone – there need not be a struggle.” Beautifully said. We make life hard but it needs not be that way.

  16. ‘we are all here to bring the presence of God to all that we do and everyone we know.’ And we all bring a different aspect of God which is needed for all, the piece of a puzzle, never one can be missed to get to the whole.
