We are on an endless search for something. Our life should be easy but it becomes increasingly more complicated. We are free but we succumb to various trends which ironically make up our identity.
We say that we know ourselves, but we base this opinion on what other people say about us. We are God’s temple, but we cannot stop hurting not only others but also ourselves.
Before we got here we were pure as the Source which created us. We were unable to give, because the Creator destined us to receive from Him. We had everything we could dream about and our desires received instant gratification. And so we took and took from It until we got to a point where we did not want to receive anymore. There was too much of this taking. It had become unbearable. We wanted to be like the one who sends us this abundance. We wanted to resemble the Creator, our Source. We also wanted to give, but it was impossible since the Creator didn’t need anything. There was no lack in Him.
And what did we do? We refused to receive! Our greatest desire was to feel like the Creator himself. It turned out that it was impossible to get this feeling unless we worked hard to deserve it, in purifying ourselves from reactive taking and annihilating the feeling of shame.
And this is how we got here on Earth without remembering the Higher world. We became egoists at our core, that is we could only do things with an intention for our own sake.
The problem is that in this state we are disconnected from the Creator; our life doesn’t have any sense and we are often unhappy.
As we grow, we discover higher desires in ourselves which motivate us to change our nature. We want to give, because it allows us to be better. However, we are unable to do that. Isn’t it true that the road to hell is paved with good intentions?
Therefore, the aim of this book is to teach us what true giving is, whereby we discover our life’s purpose. Just as the child goes back in its thoughts to this idyllic state it experienced in its mother’s womb so do we return to the Source which created us. We want to be like this Source, we want to give, however our real nature is the opposite. How do we want to give if we always choose what brings us minimum suffering and maximum pleasure?
We are lost. Our perception is flawed. The white is black and the black is white. The Light reveals itself in the form of greatest darkness and this darkness presents itself to us as the problems we face on a daily basis, which are our own fault, not other people’s. Everything is in us and the exterior world, like a mirror, reflects our truth, our internal conflicts.
And what do we do with these? We face them and try not to bend under their weight because that would make us their victims, that is the takers. We want to give so we don’t let ourselves fall apart and we take action, we do it continuously. We need to make ourselves conscious of the fact that there isn’t a single problem in the world that couldn’t be in some way overcome.
Moreover, each problem is our medicine and facing the problem is like taking it, thanks to which we learn how to truly give, and this is how we get to resemble the Source. Overcoming difficulties gives us the certainty that we will manage, no matter what, that we have internal strength to do it.
And so we are flowing with our life, on its tide, feeling happy. The opposite is resistance, resistance to what happens to us, which is embracing the darkness, turning away from happiness.
Let’s look for CERTAINTY then, which constitutes the foundation of this work. Let’s view the problems as a part of life, a blessing in disguise. Without them we would remain mere egoists with no access to the world of infinity.
Have a nice reading!
