It’s all so beautiful. The world. God. The Universe. Good and Evil. All the powers we see and can’t see. There are people who are asleep to it all. I see them. They focus on meaningless things - things that will fall away.
Then there are those who focus on Spirit. They focus on things bigger than they are. What is the importance of money and material gain, when your spirit is dying? If it’s not growing, it’s dying. Let’s call it what it is. If you are doing nothing to nurture Spirit, then you are disconnecting with Spirit. And what a rich life it is to be connected deeply to Spirit!
How can the striving for physical pleasure bring anything but physical pleasure? I want more than that. I want spiritual and emotional wholeness. Can I receive that through striving for material things? No. The lesson in the striving for material things is that once we get what we thought we wanted, we always want more.
But if I strive for spiritual riches, I am satiated. If I want for more, I get closer to Spirit, and Spirit fills me even more. I then have abundance, I feel abundance. I can share in this abundance by giving to others unselfishly, knowing that I will never run out of spiritual riches. As long as I stay connected to Spirit, the flow of abundance is unceasing and endless. I am then a channel, a vessel, a transmitter to share this abundance with others.
Material riches run out. I give and give, and if I’m only giving from my own ego and supply, I will run out. But if I give, even material riches, and accept that it is Spirit who is making the supply possible, then I take my ego out of the equation, and anyone who is blessed spiritually or materially at that point knows that it is Spirit who gives, not me. In this way, the supply will never run out. There is always more to give.
