THE FLOW OF LIFE

This week I offer you my fourth article in my current series of deeper spiritual topics.
(These form part of my 10th spiritual book, ‘Living The Sacred Life”, due out shortly).
This is Part 1 of……..

THE FLOW OF LIFE
“The Flow of Life is to care and share together.”
The speaker seemed so very well known to us. He was, in a previous human life, none other than Nanak, the founder of Sikhism. We felt both happy and yet surprised to find him there.

“No worthwhile life can be lived in a vacuum,” he stated with great seriousness.
“No-one can live their life solitary, purely for themselves, by themselves.
“It is certainly a truth that each person best lives it as themselves. Yet they do so in the company of mankind. Indeed, the greater the individual’s personal integrity the more they share themselves with the wider company of mankind.
“In caring for others one enriches one’s own  humanity. Reaching out to others is the selfsame act as reaching in toward your own authenticity. Caring for others is the selfsame act as caring for your true Self.

“On the other hand, avoidance of others is avoidance of oneself. Avoidance of the pain of others is avoidance of one’s own pain. Avoidance of the needs of others is avoidance of one’s own needs.

“Avoidance of another makes one less than whole. When one lives for any extended time in seclusion it leads to cessation of the flow of life which expresses the very fullness of existence.

“On the other hand, in sharing with others one enriches one’s own experiences.
It has truly been said that the journey taken alone to the mountaintop may indeed be a great achievement – but it is nothing compared to the sense of achievement which is felt when the same journey is undertaken with a companion.

“Sharing spreads the Gift you are to others.  Sharing distributes the Love you are to those suffering the seeming lack thereof.  Sharing delivers the strength of Oneness to those who cannot feel the richness of its touch.

“To care and share is to be witness to the budding humanity of another. There are times in every life when one doubts one’s truths and one’s purpose. At such times great richness can be experienced by the simple act of your being there for others.
“At times of personal trouble and social turmoil great benefit accrues through your selfless act of being a witness, a willing comfort to others.
“It is in giving, sharing, witnessing, bearing one another’s trials and achievements that you live a complete life.

The Love you express to another is the mirror reflection of the Love you express to yourself. The time you give to another is the mirror reflection of the time you give to your true Self. And the attention you give to the needs of others is the mirror reflection of the attention you pay to your own inner Being”.

Blessings and hugs,

THE PROMISE OF LIFE

This week I offer you my third article in my current series of deeper spiritual topics. (These form part of my 10th spiritual book, ‘Living The Sacred Life”, due out shortly). THE PROMISE OF LIFE The Promise of Life is that we are always safe. Most of humanity seriously doubts this promise and instead thinks…

THE TRUTH OF LIFE

The truth of Life is that all is actually One. When I say “all” I don’t just mean that all “human beings” are part of something much bigger called “humanity” – but rather we acknowledge that everything at its very core is part of the same “stuff”. This Oneness isn’t limited to things we think…

THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF LIFE

The ultimate purpose of  life at our current level is to live it fully, without regrets. Now don’t immediately despair – none of us had made it that far yet……but I believe that’s where you and I are heading. And if we want to get anywhere it’s always a good idea to know where we’re…

Everyone on this planet has problems

Dear Friends, Everyone on this planet has problems. Take an actual day in my personal life as a real example……. I was woken up well before sunrise by someone wanting help with depression. After half an hour or so I was able to put the phone down and make a coffee. Then I went to…

What has happened to your ‘sacred time’ ?

Once upon a time, not so long ago, one day a week was put aside for the sacred. For some it was Friday, for others Saturday, for many Sunday. But it was put aside. Every week. Unless it was an emergency, you didn’t work. You certainly didn’t go shopping, to the races, the footie or…

Spiritual Teachers and Guides

Sometimes spiritual teachers and guides give the impression they have superbly succeeded in every area of their life whilst you and I are still struggling to move forward and get a handle on things. In their photos and videos and books they seem so relaxed and overflowing with peace. They give the impression they’re in…

Easter season has come; and is now going

My dear friends, The Easter season has come; and is now going…… During it we saw the Mother Of All Bombs (a 22,600 lbs warhead) dropped on the afghan countryside; 59 Tomahawk (1,000lb) missiles exploded in Syrian built up areas, some 3,000 people saved from drowning whilst trying to cross the Mediterranean sea to escape…

EVER WONDERED WHY TODAY IS CALLED ‘GOOD’ FRIDAY?

After all, it celebrates a terrible injustice! In olden times, ‘goode’ used to mean ‘holy’ or ‘sacred’. Even today in many countries the day is called “sacred Friday”. But the church still sticks to the ‘olde ways’ and so it still calls it Good Friday! Sad really as that ‘old word’ simply reflects old thinking……..
