Each and every one of us can choose to have access to the experience of true abundance, because it already inhabits us and it is our common shared essence and value. This abundance is where we humans, function at our best.
Achieving this level of participation from abundance requires some training, as we grow in a context where we are taught to enhance survival mechanisms, rather than human sustainability skills: thriving skills, which rely on letting the essential flow within and through us, establishing a communication between individuals forming collectives. Human Sustainability is to be responsible aware and willing, is to ride, that frequency that seeks to transcend the form, through participation and empathic connection with the other, to be competent rather than competitive. Whoever exercises their thriving skills becomes a creator, leaving behind the passive observer, experiencing the dynamism on which the continuity of life is based. True Service
When this exchange is based on pity or condescension, it is limited. When the will to share comes from love, an infinite flow is accessed and it is a pleasure to become conduits through which movement can arise and oxygenate our contextual universes.
Our motivation to share cannot be the individual gratification of a feeling of indulgence towards the less fortunate, that one who, for some reason foreign to their own will or merits, is at a disadvantage in the eyes of others. Complete oxygenation of the ecosystem cannot be achieved if the method is to dishonor the pain of others. When we experience pity and act from there, we reinforce that frequency where there is separation and subtract the essential value from the one we “help.” Service is based on the deep dignity and celebration of the essence, shared from a space where we all wage our own battles, supporting one another.
