Cause and Effect: The Suffering of humanity is caused by the selfishness of mankind.
Many of us have felt or are feeling an intense/internal awareness of compassion and of the suffering of humanity.
We must step out of the age-old superstition of waiting for a supernatural, spiritual superhero to descend from the sky. Let us stop looking outside ourselves to instead BECOME individual units of empathy, love and light TOGETHER… By studying, applying and becoming the ancient teachings we directly affect those around us through acts of unselfishness, kindness and understanding ~ this attitude and these actions by contagion will begin to make the difference we so desperately seek.
For far too long humanity has been spiraling into division, exclusivity and delusions of grandeur – enamored and obsessed with the transitory earthly personality of the senses.
There IS NO leader, no one can give you the answers and no one is more or less holy than YOU are – Earthly hierarchy is a false perception, the Divine Spark resides within us all… it is our choice to recognize and act upon this knowledge. Perhaps you are here reading this today because you also KNOW and can identify THIS powerful FEELING OF innate compassion for others.
• SELFISHNESS is the great curse of the human race.
We have the most important of responsibilities, if we have reached if we have food, shelter, safety, we have achieved a certain and basic level of development… we must, in whatever way we can, be of service to our fellow beings here on earth.
In the 8th Century the Buddhist monk Shantideva wrote:
“For all those ailing in the world,
Until their every sickness has been healed,
May I myself become for them
The doctor, nurse, the medicine itself.
And now as long as space endures,
As long as there are beings to be found,
May I continue likewise to remain
to drive away the sorrows of the world.
May I be a light for those in need of light. May I be a bed for those in need of rest. May I be a servant for those in need of service, for all embodied beings….
How wonderful will it be when all beings experience each other as limbs on the one body of life.”
Study, Apply and Become the teachings of the ancient wisdoms… Theosophy (Higher Knowledge)
Find them, and become them.
In a world heaving from the oppressive and division of religious fundamentalism and a dangerous ocean of self appointed sages, masters and prophets ~ we must always remember the ageless truth:
“The platforms from which the ancient teachings are to be taught from, are meant for the teachings, not the teacher.”
Shanti = Sanskrit word meaning peace, calm and tranquillity
Deva = Angel/Higher being
