A Reason to Smile

A Reason to Smile


Sowing and reaping, Or, blocking the Universal flow

No one can do it alone

“Charity never humiliated him who profited from it, nor ever bound him by the chains of gratitude, since it was not to him but to God that the gift was made.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I’ve noticed a strange thing.

People pray and pray for God to bless them, send them good fortune, and make their lives better, but when those things start to show up, they turn away.

Or, when they find themselves in a position to be a blessing for someone else, they don’t do it.

So, let’s start with the first one:
Have you ever had someone who wanted to do something for you, and you didn’t let them? Maybe they wanted to pay for lunch, or loan you money when you really needed it; but what happened when they tried?
If you’re like most, you probably politely turned it down.

But my question is: why?

If it was within their power to bless you, why didn’t you let them?
Ego? Pride? Vanity? Oh, I’m sure it was none of those things when it was you, but I guess you can see how it could stop someone else.
The thing is, this Universe functions according to certain Laws, and one of them is the Law of Vibration / Attraction, better known as Karma.
Karma is a boomerang, what you give, is what you get. As a man soweth, so shall he reap.

When you block someone from doing something nice for you, you block their ability to bring something good to * them *. Instead of becoming a channel for the Universal Flow, you become an obstacle.
And when you become an obstacle, you block the flow of good to * you *, too.

The flip side to this, is when it is within your power to help someone, do you do it? When you see a homeless person, do you give them money?
Now, I have to confess, I don’t; but I DO go buy them food or water and bring it back, so that I know my resources have gone to their greater good.

Or if a friend is going through hard times, and it has been within your power to help with a kind word, if not materially, did you do it? And if not, why not?

I find most people’s lack of charity is rooted in the idea that if they give, there may not be enough left over for them. In reality, quite the opposite is true; when you give, you tell the Universe you believe there is enough to go around, and that is what you will experience; when you don’t, you are telling the Universe there is NOT enough to go around, and that is what you will experience.

The Ancients taught that Mankind existed in the exact midpoint of Creation; midway between the molecular and the Almighty Creator. Whether or not that is literally true, it is important in the since that we are meant to be a connector, a link in the chain; to some we give, from some we receive.
To some we are an inspiration, and others inspire us.

Watch your thoughts and actions, and imagine God was standing next to you; what are you saying? I have plenty, and am open to more; or, I am selfish and don’t really appreciate what I already have?

You are great, and I love you!
