…how many “random acts of kindness” are happening all the time
Everyone can serve his neighbour, and everyone can give, even when there seems to be nothing to give. How glorious is that inexhaustible giving!” from Supermundane, sloka 477
How would it be to live in the grace of a world where giving is the basis of daily living?
Looking around our world at the moment as nations fragment and climate events uproot old patterns of living, it seems that almost every part of our globe is in some kind of upheaval and transition. In this upheaval different localised patterns of living and their inherent values meet one another and a range of reaction and response ensues. At the same time minorities, long-suppressed sub-cultures within the fabric of power and governance, are rising up to reveal all that was once hidden, misunderstood or disbelieved. The validity and credibility of the existing infrastructure of our civilisation is being challenged in so many ways.
While our minds may observe this and rationalise the past and the status quo, our hearts are beginning to realise that a new pattern of living which meets the needs of all can only be born through a response that flows from heart to heart, drawing all that embodies the one life of Earth into a new dance, a new rhythm of life. And this is beginning to unfold through our world. It is the heart-song of a new era.
…a whole new infrastructure is emerging to address the essential needs of life
The universe is complete in its abundance which freely flows throughout.
In its essence, the heart is an organ of higher action and giving; that is why every act of giving partakes of the nature of the heart. Every positive Teaching enjoins giving. Such an affirmation is truly practical, for without giving, the heart does not endure. Naturally, one has to understand giving in all its justice. Giving should not be understood as just contributing money or donating objects one no longer needs. True giving is of the spirit. Let every heart pour forth streams of spiritual gifts. Not without cause is it said that every beat of the heart is a smile, a tear, and gold. All life flows through the heart. The seeker should be able to give constant work to the heart. Nothing can refine the heart so perfectly as limitless spiritual giving. Usually spiritual giving is not valued, since anything invisible goes unappreciated. But the source of wealth, whether spiritual or material, is the heart. If only one could bring it into every situation where the heartbeat would be precious.” Heart 386.
…the spiral of the evolution of civilisation rises and expands into finer dimensions of clarity
The so-called feminine and masculine energies will also unfold to flow in rhythmic balance and freedom. The teaching clarifies:
So, too, does creativeness proceed according to the spiral, and each vital attraction or repulsion creates its own spiral. That is also why spirals of the Masculine and Feminine Principles proceed in such divergent directions. The Masculine Principle strives for seizure, regardless of the heart of man. The Masculine Principle makes bridges for its achievements by stepping upon hearts and heads. The issue is not brain power, for potentially the Feminine Principle contains the same fires. But the Feminine Principle is in need of freedom for heart expression. When it becomes customary to allow the Feminine Principle to live and develop its potentiality toward regeneration through its feeling of continuous giving, then will the Feminine Principle outdistance the Masculine in all directions.” Fiery World III 284.
A new civilisation is being born – even though it may yet be unsung and unacknowledged.
…the eternal river, the Water of Life – the Life-sharing grace that flows throughout all the Cosmos.
Constant readiness is a quality which needs to be developed. Readiness is not a nervous transport, it is not transitory tension. Readiness is harmony of the centers, always open to perception and reaction. The man who is filled with harmony is always receiving and always giving. His being is always strengthened by an uninterrupted current. There is no giving without receiving. To break such a current is the death of advancement. The all-knowing one will also be all-giving. Let us understand this truth broadly, not setting limits by earthly conditions.
A law exists according to which receiving must not be construed as an accrual of personal property. Realization of such a concept can take place in the heart. No false assurances will deceive the heart. Strengthening of psychic energy produces firmness.
Constant readiness is the product of a healthful psychic energy.” Aum 580.
As our human hearts open we come into that radiatory stream of love and life and become at-one
