Which path are you choosing?

Service to Others?  Or Service to Self?

In his powerful book, The Synchronicity Key, David Wilcock teaches that Infinite Consciousness recognizes no separation between you and anyone else.

You are me and I am you.

As we move towards unity consciousness, our awareness of unity with others grows daily, offering us greater understanding of the importance of “Service to Others.”

SERVICE to OTHERS

Often we hear examples of Service to Others that require enormous sacrifice.

  • Someone dies while rescuing others from a fire or flood.
  • Someone who is starving feeds their last morsel of food to an equally starving child.
  • Someone stays behind on a sinking ship to make space in the life boat for another person.

These definitely qualify as Service to Others, but only if they are done from a place of love.  Service to Others must flow from an open, loving heart.

If we do something for someone else, and we are simultaneously filled with anger or resentment or any other lower vibrational emotion, our offering is tainted and impure.  It’s vibration of our intention will resonate with whatever emotion we are feeling at the time of the action.  If we are proud of our service, we taint it with our pride.  If we puff up our ego because of our service, we are still serving ourselves.  If we resent taking the action, i.e., making the sacrifice, then we are holding back our love, and that lowers the vibrational frequency of our action.

Service to Others will, indeed, benefit us.  It will karmically balance other actions we have taken.  It can even heal some of our own inner pain and limitation.  But to do so, it must come fully from a place of Infinite Love Without Conditions.

SHARING – a step on the path to OVERFLOWING ABUNDANCE

There are times when we are so filled with Love and Light that we are overflowing with these essential qualties of Infinite Consciousness.  Those are the times when it’s easy to put others first.  When we have so much to give, so much to share, and so much love that we can barely imagine not giving or sharing, we delight in the very act of sharing itself.

Do you remember feeling so happy and filled with joy that you felt you’d explode if you didn’t share it?

Maybe it was something you found funny.  Maybe it was some amazingly powerful experience you just had.  Maybe it was a personal insight that helped shift you into higher consciousness.  Maybe it was something you felt a friend or family member would really enjoy just as much as you enjoyed it.

Whatever it was, you were eager for others to share in how you felt, and that sharing is a way of serving others.

When we have more than enough to share,

it’s easy to share. 

When we feel scarcity or lack, it feels harder.

When we feel scarcity or lack, it’s because we have down-shifted out of the expanded consciousness of abundance.  This brings up our fear.  Then it’s time to remind ourselves of just who we are and of who “the other” is.

YOU are Infinite Consciousness.

Infinite Consciousness is YOU.

There is no “other.”

If you are Infinite Consciousness, how can you be in scarcity?  Scarcity is an illusion brought on by the spiritual game of separation and limitation.

We live in scarcity when we accept limitation.  We tell ourselves (and each other) that if there’s only so much food possible to grow and only so much food available to eat, someone will go hungry.  This thinking occurs because …

  1.  In 3-D vibration we were programmed to feel that way.
  2. We “forget” to live in the NOW moment and to TRUST our own HIGHER GUIDANCE to provide.

There are so many stories about how food expands, quite literally, when it is shared.

There is the story of the visitor to hell who saw large vats of delicious food and people with spoons too long to reach their own mouths.  Everyone stood around starving.

Was starvation necessary?  NO!!

The same visitor went to heaven and there were the same vats of food and the same enormous spoons with handles too long to reach the mouth of the person holding it.  Here no one was starving.

Why?

Because everyone used the spoons to feed each other!

There’s another powerful story called “Stone Soup.”

Once there was a village where it had been a poor year for farming.  Each family kept to itself and refused to share their meager supplies.

One day, a man wandered into town, stopped in the town square, and built a wood fire over which he placed a large pot of water.  Into the pot he placed a large stone.

The villagers, who’d been looking out their windows, were very curious.  What could this man possibly be doing?

Finally, a small boy was sent out to ask the man.

“I’m making stone soup.”  the man told him.  “It will be delicious, but it could be better if it only had some turnip in it.”

“I think we have a small turnip at our house,” replied the boy.  He ran home, told his mother the story, and she agreed to give a small turnip to the man.  The boy brought it to him, was copiously thanked, and the turnip went into the pot.

Now the neighboring family was intrigued.  What did the boy next door give the man?  So they send out their oldest daughter, and the man said, “I’m making stone soup, but it would taste so much better with a bit of carrot.”

Can you guess where this story is going?  Each village family eventually contributes something to the pot of Stone Soup, and before long, there is a most amazing stew being made that is enough to feed the entire village.

Sharing is part of Service to Others.  Even when we feel contracted and small, fearful and lacking in wealth, there is always something we can share.  When we begin to share, we open to our hearts to receive, and thus make room for abundance to flow into our lives.  At the same time, we are serving others.

As they receive our gift of sharing, the joy in their eyes and the delight in their hearts becomes a gift they give back to us.  In this way,

When I help you,

you are also helping me:

you are reflecting my own joy and delight

back to me.

If you want proof of this, give it a try.  Share something that inspires you with someone else who will also enjoy it and see what happens.  Notice how you feel afterwards.  Give thanks and appreciation to the other person and your yourself for taking this step into Service to Others.

 

Service to Self

Which path have you chosen?

Service to Self?  Or Service to Others?

 

SynchronicityKey

I’ve been reading David Wilcock’s new book, The Synchronicity Key, in which he shares some powerful messages from the series known as The Law of One.  His work has helped me gain greater understanding of the two paths, “Service to Self” and “Service to Others.”

Here’s my understanding of these two concepts:

“Service to Self” and “Service to Others”

are not about putting yourself first or last.

 

They are about how you treat other people and

how you treat yourself.

 

They are about how you follow your Soul Path. 

 

The end definitely does NOT justify the means,

and …

it never did!!

SERVICE to SELF

So many of us have been conditioned to believe that it is “wrong” or “sinful” to put ourselves first.  Women, in particular, have had an extra dose of this programming, but men, as well, have been taught this.  Yet putting yourself first at least some of the time is essential if you are to be healthy – mentally, emotionally, and physically, and I encourage you to take this very seriously.  Unless you take care of yourself and fill yourself up with energy, light, and love, you have nothing to offer to others, and that’s a fact!

“Service to Self” refers to treating others badly in order to fill yourself up and to get what you want on your path.

“Service to Self” is about seeking to CONTROL others, to MANIPULATE them, to FEED OFF THEIR ENERGY, to STEAL THEIR PERSONAL POWER.

If these are the methods you use to “get ahead” or to create relationships or for any other reason, then you are enmeshed in a “Service to Self” pattern.

Now you might immediately respond with, “I would never do any of these things,” and I believe that you believe what you tell me.  However, I would urge you to closely examine your motivations and methods in all you think, say, and do.

First, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of lying to yourself.  We’ve all done it.  When we fail to recognize our true feelings, such as shame or fear or jealousy, we end up believing that our motives are pure and we justify our behaviors on that basis.

Second, “Service to Self” is often rationalized.  We want to “get ahead” rather than “get a heart” about most things in life.  We see what others are doing and tell ourselves that “if so-and-so can do it, so can I.”  We rarely ask our Soul or I Am Presence to point out to us when we have stepped into “Service to Self” patterns.  We may allow greed and dishonesty to override moral principles and our sense of integrity.

Actually, if you find yourself needing to “justify” to yourself anything you’ve said or done, let that be a signal that there may be a hidden agenda – a feeling or belief that it would benefit you to uncover and heal.

Here are a few examples of Service to Self;

  • Judging or criticizing someone to make you feel better about yourself.
  • Gossiping.
  • Bullying or manipulating someone into doing what they don’t want to do.
  • Telling lies or blaming someone else for something you don’t want to own up to yourself.
  • Dumping your anger on someone, even when what you are angry about has nothing to do with that person.
  • Rape, incest, physical and emotional abuse or torture of any kind.
  • Calling names.
  • Treating another as a non-person, even if that person is perceived to be “the enemy.”
  • Stealing other people’s energy, money, property, or anything else that belongs to someone else.

“Service to Self” takes you away from the Light and Love of Infinite Consciousness so that you’ll experience darkness and lovelessness.   Darkness and lack of love become the prods that you’re giving yourself to change your direction to the path of Love and Light.

You experience greater darkness because, when you are treating others badly, you are also treating yourself badly, as Infinite Consciousness does not distinguish between you and anyone else.

This is experienced as karma, a feedback loop through which whatever you have done to another will be returned to you in some form.  Of course, you may not recognize the synchonicity in karma, but it is definitely there.  Infinite Consciousness recognizes that there is no separation between you and anyone else, so you will receive a karmic return for all that you think, say, and do.
