Helping those in Need Part 4
We are repeating the closing portion of the previous posting so that we can complete the discussion of Helping those in Need.
Questioner: Yes. Fix your own plumbing.
The Council: The question is: Why doesn't the plumber do that?
Questioner: Because it is easier to ignore your own plumbing and glorify yourself by fixing other people's plumbing.
Questioner: He is out after the almighty dollar, that's why.
The Council: Think about what YOU people have said. You see, you truly do have the answers. Possibly, once in awhile, some of you may need your knowledge jarred a little. We told you in the beginning, there is no secret. This Divine Creator loves you so deeply and so personally that nothing is hidden from you. Consequently, we cannot tell you a secret, since they do not exist. The best that we can do is try to get you to think, to remember, and to re-evaluate yourselves. Very well. Does that answer the question sufficiently?
Questioner: Yes, it does, for me.
Questioner: Do I understand it right then in the understanding that through your own thoughts and acts of love that you come to realize in your Subconscious that you are a child of God? Is that the way to understanding that?
The Council: Yes. Yes. A very simple answer to the problem, isn't it? Start performing acts of love; start accepting people as they are; and make that a lifestyle; make it a lifestyle. Oh, it is true, there are times that you will have to force yourself to be loving, to be accepting, to do things that are considered charitable or loving. That is not what is important. What is important is that you make it a practice, and as you practice it more and more, you begin to develop that consciousness within the Subconscious, and the more that consciousness is developed, the easier the higher you can reach across that crevasse and touch the conscious you, and once that point, that contact, is made you have come to the end of your journey and your rewards are laid before you.
Questioner: When you made the statement, "the poor and starving are means to the common man's success," are you talking about spiritual success?
The Council: Yes. We hardly would advocate the sorrows and pain of others for financial success of anyone.
Questioner: No, I thought perhaps that you might be referring to that because of man's drive for power is what causes the poor and starving masses. I just wanted to clarify that that is what you were talking about.
The Council: The problem is there are two quests in life, two quests in life: the quest of love and the quest of power. You cannot quest for both. They are the opposite ends of the pole, and one destroys the other. Ultimately, one will win and that is absolute. We feel that it would only be wise to go with the winning side. There are poor in the world, there will be poor in the world, but this is the avenue for the common man to grow spiritually, not at the expense of the poor, but at his own expense. It is an expense that he should joyfully accept. And we are not necessarily talking about financial expense either.
