Since I was very young I understood that I wanted to be in service to humanity. I'd always looked at people in terms of, how can I help them? What can I offer them? I rarely factored myself into the equation.
Imagine my surprise when I recognized what kind of world we live in, one of takers.
Much of my life I felt taken advantage of and exploited, and for good reason- because I was. People like me who have soft, large hearts, who give more than they receive, who offer up everything because she sees you as part of the larger picture, she recognizes your humanity, she wants to help you, get run over. Until that is, they recognize their part in the larger picture. They understand the power of self-less service to the greater good.
And that's what I encourage from you. We must recognize we do live in a world ruled by money, human-dictated notions of power and authority, of selfishness and illness, of wanting to control things. With me, I encourage you to let go. I encourage you to understand true service, and the power of giving, even if it's just of yourself for a moment. I encourage you to understand non-attachment to belongings, to hoarding and lack mentalities, to let go of greed and needing to accumulate. What you can experience then, is freedom. And- the more you give, the more you receive. The more you create space by giving, the more it can be filled.
Receiving is very different from taking.
WHEN WE GET TO THAT PLACE, WE ARE UNTOUCHED BY HIERACHIES AND LIMITATIONS OF THE EGO.
