GIVING AND RECEIVING

We are beginning to understand that this world we live in is designed to be a world of joy, love, health and abundance. If we are willing to surrender to the Beingness of God as Law, we will find our lives reflecting God as Love in every way.  

The divine law underlying all of life is not complicated. It is knowable, and easily do-able, and it is above all a law of love. Our difficulty lies in the fact that divine law at our heart level often seems to be at variance with the logical read-outs we get from senses and intellect. For example, one essential expression of spiritual law is what we know as The Golden Rule: Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

 

On one level the law seems to make sense. If everybody were following the Golden Rule, obviously we’d be in a wonderful world of consideration for others. But what about people who are, in my estimation, treating me badly? Am I still to follow The Golden Rule even though they don’t deserve it? Why?

 

We move to our hearts to find a deeper level of meaning. The Golden Rule is like tithing. We receive energy back according to how we put energy out – whether that energy is expressed as money or as love, appreciation and respect. If we want abundance, we must express abundance by putting that energy in motion. If we want to be appreciated, we must extend appreciation.

 

When we all fully surrender to God as Law, we will experience the Kingdom of heaven Jesus talked of. Until then, we can begin to create that kingdom for ourselves by directing our energy as we want to receive energy.

 

Today, I joyfully affirm the power of my Beingness by sending it forth to serve others. Thank You, God.
