The ego is not the true you. The true you is your soul, which like the Light, only wants to share infinitely.
The ego and its selfish desires are not really ours.
We may think, “I want my money,” or “I want my soul mate,” or “I want this job,” or “I want to understand why this is happening,” or “I want an answer!”
But the real you – your soul – really just wants to share.
I heard a funny story last week about a guy who was running late for one of the most important meetings of his life, and he can’t find a parking space. He throws up his hands and says, “God, if you give me a spot, half of what I make from this deal I’ll give to charity.”
Before the words escape of his mouth, someone pulls out of a space that’s right in front of him! He looks back up to the heavens and says, “Oh, nevermind. I just found one!”
It’s an important lesson for us always, but especially during this month of miracles.
Hindsight is 20/20, right? How many times have we all wished we could have done things differently, if only we’d seen then what we can see now?
It’s important to take time to think things through, from A to Z. This is how we become responsible.
We will never see the whole picture but trying to see beyond our immediate reactions will give the universe permission to show us more.
Connecting the dots helps us to be proactive in upcoming situations, and by so doing we plant seeds that will blossom into positive outcomes.
Real sharing includes consciousness as well as action.
The question is: Why are you sharing? A lot of times we share with someone because we want something from them in return; maybe we want praise or we want to be seen as a good person. But when we start to share more unconditionally with the right consciousness, doors open where we didn't know there were doors.
The more we can share without an agenda of wanting anything in return the more we connect with the Light, and become beings of true sharing.
My father, the Rav, used to tell his students that if all they did was make a list of the things they least wanted to do or face and spent an entire day just focused on getting as many of them done as possible they’d be revealing Light more than any other day in their lives.
Breaking out of our comfort zone breaks us of our limitations, and connects us with the limitless …aka the Light!
Acts of kindness when we're inspired definitely reveal Light, but not nearly as much as the actions of sharing we do when we feel like it the least.
Next time we want to run away from an opportunity to share, don't run. Reveal Light instead.
If a person is not ready to receive they simply can’t receive.
When it comes to sharing our wisdom, love or even criticism with the people in our lives we need to ask ourselves if they are truly open and ready to receive whatever it is we have to offer.
If not, we are hindering rather than helping.
The best teachers are those who are what they teach.
We can all be a little better about walking the walk.
When you change, you both influence change in the world and inspire others to change.
There are days we find ourselves in a bad mood and we just don’t know why. We don’t have any pressing legal matters or health conflicts. Nobody’s out to get us. We’re simply depressed, angry or easily irritated by others.
It might seem random, but it most definitely is not.
Everything that happens to us is a result of the choices we have made in our past.
When friends are going through real tragedy or hardship our natural inclination is to want to help. But what about those times when it seems there is little we can do for them that will make a difference?
We can feel helpless in these situations but the truth is that there is always something we can do.
Simply be there. Just listen. Keep them in your prayers. Keep them in your mind and your heart as you do acts of kindness or spiritual study.
We can always find small ways to send big Light to people in need.
