29 Nov The Law of Giving
The ability to give is both the lowest and highest common denominator of human beings. ~ Siraj
Giving is a difficult subject. Most on this planet simply do not know what it means to give, and hence live in a poverty that sustains the world’s poverty. All of this affects everyone as a whole and eventually leads to economic collapse and social degeneration. The sorrow is not just with the person who refuses to give, but extends beyond the boundaries of nations and into the very fiber of the whole of humanity.
Money is meant to be used to invoke the harmony which creates a profound sense of Oneness in this world. This Oneness is the ultimate relationship with Love as the originator of Life itself. To live in such a manner is to live outside the box of greed and human insecurity. Most of us are far too insecure to understand the nature of the spiritual here on earth. Our insecurity is based in how deeply emotional we are about the state of our bodies and how we live with our DNA and genetic patterns.
Our fears are predicated in our bodily survival. We want to use money and possessions as a way to control our lives so we are not at the mercilessness of other people. But no matter how we try to avoid it all, we are subject to Laws that put us at the mercy of Love. It is essential to understand that fear cannot be the essence of our lifetime.
Love is the guardian deity of everything. Nothing can exist without it. ~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido
All great teachers from Rumi to Kahlil Gibran, Lao-tzu to the Buddha, teach the essence of the Law of Giving. The formula is very simple and abides by the Laws that govern our mystical union with Life: we give that we might sustain the well-being of everyone involved in our giving, in order to increase everyone’s inward sense of authentic reality in ONENESS with the All.
It is in our giving that we root ourselves into the harmony of Life and allow it to transform the world that we live in by drawing everyone into the Oneness of the Universe. There is great power in this state of Oneness. We give that we might add to the beauty of other people’s lives, a beauty that sustains the energy that reunites us with our spiritual origins.
We are here to manifest the Love that is our essential Being. Wealth is a matter of consciousness, not the amount of money we have in the bank. Our Karma, our lives and how we awaken to the Laws of the Mystical thrive when we can realize the intrinsic goodness of our nature. Money is a channel for Love. Through our buying, selling and giving we offer to others the chance to empower money to bless people. If we allow money to serve humankind, it can do a great deal of good in this world.
We must be willing to shed our fears for the sake of Loving kindness. ~ Siraj
Everything we are and everything we do matters. Never forget…by helping others we spread the loving care back into people’s lives for them to live out their own generosity through kindness. Kindness matters and is essential to all of us. Our state of kindness and forgiveness is our most important inner posture in this lifetime. It is the very core by which we give…as well as how and what we will receive.
Be willing to forgive - forgiveness allows authentic prosperity to occur
Allow for Love to overcome the fears of the body and live in the kindness of generosity
Let your money, as you pay for goods and services, becomes a donation to enriching other people’s lives
Place Love before your bodily desires for comfort and wealth and a whole new world will open up within you where you receive exactly what you need, when you need it
