Because we’re all part of God, we’re together forever. Eternally one with each other.
I find this awareness particularly helpful when there’s a great sense of loss and grief, and when we don’t feel connected to someone we dearly Love. I remind myself that I cannot possibly BE separate from my loved ones, I can only FEEL separate – and that feeling will pass.
One of the most beautiful aspects of our life in Spirit is that we’re not alone – ever.
We’re interconnected and interdependent. With each other. With Spirit. With Angels and all manner of helpful beings. And, whether we like it or not. Without a cooperative effort much of life would be unbearable and yet there are many times when I’ve felt momentarily resistant to being cooperative.
One of the primary ways I’ve experienced the ego identification is when I’ve felt that belligerence rise up within me and I’ve refused to cooperate. When I was younger, I felt it all the time. That haughty, resistant, argumentative attitude was one of the ways that I would reclaim my power when I felt a lack of power. I’d try to regain my power Now I know better.
Opening my heart to collaboration and cooperation is my power!
When we work together, we are so much stronger than when we work alone.
Working together we can form a collective intelligence that is far greater and more powerful than anything I could create alone. It can also be far more satisfying.
These days, I prefer to be a bridge builder and a collaborator. The blessings are enormous and I am grateful every day!
A powerful daily spiritual practice is to find one significant way you can cooperate more effectively with the people in your family, your workplace, school or community.
Look for the ways that you can be supportive, extending compassion and let those things replace the criticisms and complaints. This is a powerful spiritual practice that heals our mind of lack, limitation and separation.
By being willing to cooperate I build a bridge. As I walk across the bridge, I bring with me an offering of my heart. By a simple act such as this I make the world a more peaceful place and that’s being truly helpful.
It’s not so hard to fulfill your purpose when you know your purpose is simply to Love and be loved.
Being able to model this purpose is healing to all. In a time of intense divisiveness and seeming differences, being a peacemaker is a great skill that we can hone and demonstrate. I’m so grateful we can be helpful instead of helpless!
