Spiritual Wisdom | Mother Nature has more than enough for all
Maybe life is not exactly met to be all rosy. But spiritual wisdom uncovers some truth that does not only help us understand and enjoy life, but also brings predictability to life and makes it worth living.
Yes some people are born into wealth. From childhood to adulthood, they enjoy the best of everything. Live in porche houses, have constant access to the best facilities, have wealthy neighbors and rich friends, gain quick access to travel visa and destinations around the world, and so on and so forth. Some others are not so fortunate but are born into poverty, with barely enough resources to even go through basic education. They depend on leftovers of the rich to survive. They work so hard but earn very little. Even their lean income comes from the rich. Yet I say that there’s provision for Everyone. This is Spiritual Wisdom.
So, how come we say these 2 categories of people are born equal, when it is evident that nature has favored one above the other? How come I insist that Nature is fair to all when it is apparent that some are naturally ‘lucky’ even at the expense of others? What chances do the poor have in a society and community where the rich and wealthy take it all? Yet I say there’s provision for Everyone.
Let me explain. First of all, you need to understand that the rich deserve the riches they get and the poor attract the poverty that comes to them. Hard talk but we cannot be afraid to align with the truth simply because it’s not so obvious. The wealth of the poor was not robbed off them and given to the rich. Nature is too incorruptible to allow that. Everyone receives that which he deserves. But if there are genuine cases of people who did get what they did not deserve, then the government of the universe called nature will invoke the law of compensation on those people. This is Spiritual Wisdom.
If anyone forcefully came into wealth that was not granted him by nature, nature will ensure that he pays with interest, for all the credits enjoyed. That payment is suffering. On the other hand, if he came into suffering that he did not attract or deserve, then nature will ensure to compensate him with interest with enjoyment equivalent for the undeserved suffering. There’s provision for Everyone
Imagine therefore that you commence today to practice principles or that you have been practicing principle for a while but have not started to enjoy the benefits thereof. Ideally, by the practice of principles, you bring yourself to the realm that the blessings and promises of the holy book belong; you make yourself heir to the kingdom of God. But suppose you make a mistake that gave the enemy temporary victory over you, does that mean that you will lose the benefits of the principle that accrued to you? No! This is Spiritual Wisdom.
You will suffer for your mistake and by that suffering learn from it. But Nature will never deny you of your accrued benefits, even if the mistake results in your death. The concept of life after death makes it possible to either enjoy the benefits of principle you missed on earth or suffer the consequences of evil perpetrated while you lived on here. So when you come into your ‘heaven’ wherever that heaven is located, and nature presents you with a cheque for all your arrears benefits, it will appear that nature has favored you over your neighbor.
Second of all, have you noticed that while the rich are merely enjoying rewards for their ‘hard work’ the poor are busy working very hard and paying the price to come out of poverty; and most of the time, the poor successfully breaks out of poverty to become wealthy. This is how come almost all wealthy and prosperous people have a common history of struggle and humble beginning. In other words, poverty can serve as another opportunity to learn the ropes of wealth creation and to repeatedly carry out the learning process till the principles are permanently mastered and poverty is completely eliminated.
Everyone who is doing well is doing well only in a particular material or spiritual class. At some point, he would be considered overgrown for that class and would gain promotion to the next level. At this new level, there may be need to start all over again if the principles and virtues that will help him attain and maintain the level had not been properly mastered at the previous level. In any case, whether already mastered previously or learned at the new level, the new level carries with it more responsibilities and requires the development of more virtues. This means capacity building and spiritual growth for the person. But in the end, the promotion will be evident in the “all other things” that are added. Spiritual Wisdom
Therefore, if you are wealthy and happy with your current status, enjoy it because you worked for it, whether you know it or you don’t know it. However, you must continue to work in principle and remain connected to your source because a river that is no longer connected to source will ultimately dry up. Let he who is stands be wary, lest he falls. But if you are not quite where you would love to be on the ladder of success, then there is hope. Continue to work. Unfortunately, you cannot do anything order than to continue to work. To everything, there is a season; time to plant and time to harvest that which is planted. This is your time to plant; your time to work in principle. No matter how much hurry you are in to get a baby, you must wait for 9 months after you have sown the seed that produces baby. In the same vein, no matter how much hurry you are in to become wealthy, you must wait for the gestation of your labour. And only God knows what that the gestation period is. But find solace in the observation that ‘the deeper the roots of a tree goes in the ground, the heavier the weight of the tree it can carry’. There’s provision for Everyone. Spiritual Wisdom
