How To Have It All
A great kabbalist sage was once challenged to explain all the secrets of the Bible while standing on one leg. Without hesitation, he lifted his foot from the ground and said, “Love thy neighbor as yourself. All the rest is commentary.”
\This spiritual phrase contains not only all the secrets of the Bible, but of the entire universe. In fact, it’s our one-way ticket to all the joy and fulfillment the Creator intends for us to experience.
The problem is, we forget that living in this consciousness is actually for our own benefit.
It is a great paradox, yet a powerful spiritual principle that an act of sharing benefits the giver infinitely more than the receiver. Whether it’s a shoulder to lean on or a brand new Ferrari, what the receiver gets pales in comparison to what the giver gets which is a closeness to the Creator. The Creator is an endless force of everything good; it is the strength we need, the love we crave, the answer we seek, the inspiration we channel, and the peace of mind we seek. When we are connected to the Creator, we elevate our consciousness to a place where we can achieve total fulfillment.
By giving selflessly, we are by definition without “self” – and in this state we can rise above our fears, pains, and problems. There is no end to what sharing can do for us, because it connects us to the source from which endless blessings derive.
When we understand that caring for others benefits us the most, we can start to give more unconditionally of ourselves, without needing something in return – because we know we are getting everything in return.
Sharing and caring isn’t about being a nice person. It’s not even about upholding a religious precept or a spiritual principle.
It’s about how to have it all.
