One must be in pursuit of a oneness with their humanity this is the first step in spirituality. Only a good person will be accepted to the inner chambers before God. The Divine Presence dwells only with the righteous.
There are those who seemingly countless times they make schedules, agendas, itinereries accompanied with strong resolutions, descisions, and pledges to finally fulfill them – to no avail. Dont be as these, be reliable. At least make yourself like a person with whom you would be happy to befriend and associate with. When radiant joy and love emerge they are contagious. People like to keep in the company of such people.
When looking at another person find and focus upon the good within them. A Divine thought is an action. Becareful to not misjudge people. So if you need to judge others do so in a scale of merit. This can actually arouse the good that was hidden within them. This is true even before the supernal court. So look at each person to see their good. Don’t embarrass people or bring them to shame. Know each person in the world in a way is like a limb of one’s own body. So in a sense we are all responsible for one another, and even more the welfare of another in some way effects our own. So be supportive of people helping them with positive purposes with what ever they need. Don’t think about only what you want all the time.
There are other people in the world besides yourself, and they need you. How would the body function if the heart decided it did not want to share its blood with the liver. realize that all are one. All the souls are collectively one supernal organism and giving to someone else is tantamount to giving to oneself. One has to nullify their own needs and emphasize the other persons. This nullification itself elevates the person to inclusion in the ‘beginning of all beginnings’-the infiniteness of God. He has it all. This opens the gate for the one doing it to receive all good. Every one is given by God certain blessings and gifts which are given so that they can be shared with others in a natural way. You should help others without expecting anything in return. Your motivation should be a natural friendliness. By serving others you will find dignity in life. According to the way you give there will be given to you. What ever you put in you will get back. What you do comes back to you.
Do a great act of kindness and one will come to you. We are involved in the symphony of the world. Draw the vibration from above till that it descends over you around you filling you. In modern society which has governmental welfare programs and public charities it is not difficult for the individual to lose conscience. As such charity is far removed from directly being involved in helping someone else. Charity given with empathy can have a life saving effect in more than one way. By all means do not be selfish and self centered. Others depend upon you. So be whole hearted, kind, sincere, loyal, reliable, trustworthy, genuine ,earnest, honest and above reproach. Don’t involve yourself in self deception. If we hunger to live the spiritual, we hunger to serve and to give. Life’s deepest experience is the joy that fills our hearts when we love and give to others. Giving without others knowledge causes revelation of the brightness of one’s soul, and sends energy of redemption to the world. So be a redeemer. Holiness is the desire to give.
The judgments by which God runs his world are by no means such a simple obvious thing to understand as mentioned before. For example, God is quick to give the wicked their reward in this world. Since they have no other life. They don’t concern themselves with the eternal life of their soul. Not providing for its provisions, so it can be that God does not either. The righteous is only rewarded with wealth by God when they achieve the ultimate virtue of humility and modesty. Relative to free choice, a primary cause of things not going the way they are ‘supposed to’ is indulgence in pride. At times this shows that the person’s indulging in some form of ego is making a separation above, preventing them from recieving blessing. God does not want the possession of wealth to corrupt such a person. A person must work for a living. Not live for a working. Man was made for the soul. This is the true order of the world. How it “works”. To focus on wordly pursuits as an end in themselves turns things around from the true order of the way they are supposed to be to disorder. By nullifying the will of Your body for the will of your soul. You and the world become fixed and the disorder of the world becomes subdued, nullified, and included in the order that will make things‘go your way’. As then things will be “working” according to proper order. When deciding what to do, one gives precedence to the Divine desire. Do His will like your will, and He will do your will like His will. One who knows he has enough is rich.
No one needs to use their vitality chasing after accumulating material things they couldn’t possibly use in a lifetime. Its better to spend ones time and energy doing good deeds, by this they will gather blessings. You need to look at your physical occupation as a spiritual pursuit, it can be seen as just another means of linking to God. Do business faithfully. This aids the entire world to come to faith. Brings renewed energy by your work to improve the world. Know as a general principal that if one chases after that which is not meant for him. He loses that which is his own. Don’t chase after the wind. Wealth should not be treasured. Then one won’t be overwelmed inappropriately with desires for possessions. There is a appropriate medium where one works for a living with their trust in God concerning their future. Such a person in their lifetime will find sufficient time to allow them to take enough concern to fulfill what is necessary for the needs of their soul, and not only their body. Don’t get caught up in a false accounting. There is nothing worse than swindling oneself. This requires true objective introspection.
You need to take a ‘spiritual inventory’. This refers to taking stock, account, and examining their deeds. Like the way companies invest money in hiring troubleshooters whose job it is to make sure that the business is operating to its maximum potential. How much more so should a person troubleshoot himself to secure his soul’s safety and upgrade its productivity to full potential. Trust in God will give them time long enough to think of the matters concerning their soul. This is where it all starts. This is something most people just don’t find the time to seriously engage in. The world is regulated according to judgment. We must have right and proper judgment. Through continuous self judgment one draws upon oneself the awe of Heaven. Thus he eliminates the need of judgment descending upon him from Heaven to force one to this awe. A 3 fold cord is not easily broken so always realize in all your thoughts that God is first, last and there is no other.
You need to come to peace with your desires. Be careful of excessive desires of things of this world. As when there is a conflict between physical and spiritual desires this clash can interfere with one’s happiness. Numerous varieties of countless combinations of the many forms of worldly pleasures maddens the mind. If worldly interest does not die, true growth of the spiritual being cannot take place. One must shut out those desires and impulses which could damage one’s spiritual and their emotional well-being. Those that prevent you having peace of mind. Then your heart will not be confused, but remain undisturbed. You will then have tranquility of peace within. When your inner peace is disturbed energy is lost. You must work to keep your mind unfragmented, whole and centered. Don’t create in your mind dichotomy by distorted delusions. You must transcend transient trivialities.
