Here the Teacher explains how humans are so competitive in many aspects of life and how we take life so seriously. When we operate with our highest force, we are able to understand the true ideals of sharing. There is a freedom in sharing,
THE FREEDOM OF SHARING -7.5.97
You know, the world today, your world, seems like such a place of foolishness. Life is taken so seriously. In this serious way of taking life, the ideals and ideas that are being advanced and taken on by the human minds, are totally twisted and each mind is taking on its own version and creating sheer havoc. Everybody seems to wish what they wish. Oh dear, the story of “Don Quixote” - that is it. Read that story and you will find that this is what is taking place in the world today - all such foolishness! Or read the Twelfth Night of Shakespeare. You will get an idea of what your world is about at this moment.
Now, there is reason for this and that reason, is a glamour that is built up, the idea behind excellence, being the best … competition. This has been introduced thousands of years ago, and today, you are still finding it in the market place, in sports, in every area of life, including the so-called spiritual area of life. The awakening of the masses has brought this about. The amount of energy that has poured through has enabled thousands upon thousands of humans to awaken to the higher energies. This awakening has brought with it an awakening into the great astral planes of life, the psychic spheres. It is very exciting, because there have always been those who, through the ages had abilities to understand the energies and the ideals and the phases of the energies. But all had to be done in secret. Now it is open and, you may say, everyone is “jumping upon the bandwagon”. Everyone is trying to claim or acclaim themselves as part of this great movement, of seeing more than others, being greater than others.
So once again, what you find here, is another aspect of competition. It is the very few who have the true basic need to continue to the higher, to release into the higher, to observe not the psychic but to go further than the psychic and the astral, into the highest realms. Now, you stand at the point where you have the abilities to release from the glamours and to work into the truly higher energies. This takes the understanding of the ideals of FREEDOM - freedom of thought for all who are ‘climbing the mountain’, freedom of hope, freedom from glamour, freedom for the individual to act as the individual and, at the same time, to act within the whole, holding the entire concept of life eternal. That is, cosmic life within the being. Sharing - the freedom to share. Have you ever thought of that?
When you are operating at your highest, with your highest force, you are acting through the true ideals of sharing. There is a freedom in sharing, a freedom in the ability to lift above the ideas of competition and to truly share. This we are giving you today, is part of extremely high ideals that you need to work towards. In this Centre of Light, the great vortex of energy is being worked upon by you and it is your task to lift it out into a sharing energy, into an ability to understand freedom - the freedom of sharing. Within this freedom of sharing comes the freedom of being able to love. For what is unconditional love? Unconditional love is sharing. It is sharing your energies, the energies of the ‘will to good’ that comes through spirit via the soul, the Antakarana, into your physical. In healing and in loving you are sharing the energies. You are free to do so because you have enabled yourselves to lift out into that greater freedom of sharing.
There is a start, at this time, of sharing upon the Earth. The Earth has become a small planet for the humans who are beginning to understand that the wealth of the Earth needs to be shared - what the Earth is allowing humanity to use, that is. The great Devas and the guardians of the Earth can most certainly bring about a situation where nothing will be found upon the Earth that is of use to humanity. It can be changed in composition that is - the gold, the oil.
Yet there is a purpose for this all. The purpose is to help bring humanity to the understanding of the freedoms and the freedom begins with sharing -sharing of food etc. There should be no starvation problems for any life upon the Earth if there were sharing and not competition. Sharing will bring together a humanity that will no longer wish to torture, to kill. Humanity needs to be taught this. There are not all those who have the understanding of what is the role of humanity. Now, in a group such as this, the role is to show how to create life upon this Earth, in all its beauty, and that is to share. Is there any understanding of this at all?
