“Half the time you think you’re thinking, you’re actually listening.”
THE SELFISH MAN
Once upon a time, there was a selfish man called Jack. He took advantage of every situation that gave him more power and money. He rarely cared about anyone else because he did not know the Law of Higher Will. For him, the most essential task was enlarging his wealth. His attitude was money and power could get him anything.
One day, Jack traveled to Asia. Used to big limousines, he was disgusted by the small Tuk Tuk that picked him up at the airport. However, there was no other chance to get to the hotel since the roads were narrow. First, driving sideways of the city, a vast landscape emerged after a while. Its beauty was breathtaking. However, the man could not enjoy it because he was so angry about not riding in a limousine.
Suddenly, in unfortunate circumstances, the Tuk Tuk made a strange move to the side caused by a pothole and fell over. Petrified and speechless, the man was lying there in the dirt. Immediately, pedestrians came to help. Like in a dream, he witnessed selfless service without expecting repayment. For the first time in his life, he saw someone giving unconditionally. He experienced selfless service for the greater good, not just personal advancement. And it was not only one or two people. It was a whole group helping him up, lifting the Tuk Tuk, and collecting his belongings.
Inspired by this life-changing event, he shifted his viewpoint from a separate self to belonging to a collective. It was for him like experiencing love for the first time through a hug from the universe.
This story tells us that we are part of a bigger picture, and the whole is much more powerful than its parts. By dropping our selfishness, we can find deeper meaning in life, serving the greater good. Eventually, we realize that spirit is working through us as we are part of it.#
A SENSE OF DEEPER MEANING THROUGH THE LAW OF HIGHER WILL
When we mistake our word for the ultimate truth, this law can help us to find our ground and see that we are part of a much bigger collective. Also, seeing the greater picture brings relief if you tend to sabotage yourself and doubt your greatness. We are all part of something more profound. You can call it the divine, source, the universe, god, the one, or THE ALL, as hermeticists say. We are part of it, and it is part of us, as the universal “Law of Correspondence” states.
By expanding our vision beyond our ego-driven desires, we can enter a profound unity with creation serving as the gift we came here to be. We are all contributing to the whole in our unique ways. By being our true, authentic selves, guided by spirit, we can bring our gifts into generous service for the greater good. As a result, our motives go beyond our personal preference, still ultimately serving the advancement and evolution of all. Most of the world’s suffering emanates from all the little selves not seeing the whole picture.
Through harnessing our connection to spirit and higher guidance, we can flow through life with joy and ease. Of course, this change does not mean we no longer have any challenges, but we know they are part of our learning journey. So we stop suffering through them but take them as stepping stones to mastering our lives.
Inner Alchemy, also known as the Great Work or Opus Magnus, deals with inner evolution and spiritual advancement. In a clear step-by-step guide, ancient Alchemy supports us through the journey of all hardship and joy. Eventually, we experience that we are much more than our five senses can perceive, and that spirit constantly guides us. We only need to learn how to listen. Much like a radio, we tune to the right frequency. If not in tune, there is only white noise, but once aligned, the universe’s symphony is playing to and through us.
