Going once, going twice...sold. What is your soul worth?
What is your soul worth? Did you ever wonder what your soul is worth? Not to you mind you, but to others… Seems the price of souls these days varies in direct correlation to the basic principles of capitalism; the commercial value of the commodity; the equity value of the Brand; the dividend quotient paid to the shareholders. In addition, competition is fierce. The more “followers” you have, the more souls in your “possession” , the greater your worth as a centre of enlightenment and with this goes the added value of being able to charge what you like for helping people find the path. Supply and Demand…what could be more natural? Following market trends—this is after all a business and a very lucrative one to boot. Whatever happened to the ideal of freely receiving, freely giving? What is actually important? Is it that all people have the right to realize God, to understand their Divinity irrelevant of who’s footsteps they follow—for the only true path to God is through God? Or perhaps it is the right of only those elitist or distinguished few, whose association with a famous trademark or school of thought entitles them to know God? And what happens to the rest of us? Are we not good enough? Or perhaps our soul’s merit is not as dear as the others are? Where did humility, compassion, devotion, and a true desire to better mankind, which is not monetarily motivated go? You really have to step back and truly admire the façade…for if you start to look below the surface, you will see that not everything that glitters is gold. Not everyone practices what they preach. They preach what people who search outside themselves wish to hear. What the ego needs to appease itself…the greatness of reaching God via a Rolls-Royce instead of a Fiat; by flying instead of walking; by imparting instead of discovering; and ultimately satiating the ego, through pomp and circumstance. In the end though, do they ever reach the end point? Do they truly know GOD? Understand their Divinity? Radiate Unconditional Love? Instead of chasing windmills like Don Quixote, we need to stop and look within for our truth, our God and the salvation of our souls. God, Love, Divinity, Spirituality reside within each and every one of us. Every atom in the Universe that God created is equal and exactly the same as any other, for the source of all is One. When we use different techniques to reach back inside our BE-ing, we transcend our physicality and move into our Divinity. This connection back to Source, back to God is innate and inherent in all of us. By becoming aware of its existence; healing the hurts and misconceptions that keep us imprisoned; annihilating things that perpetuate differentiation—that anchor our souls in the physical, we, as individuals can reconnect to our Cosmic Origins merging and melding with God, transcending physical time and space to know Divine Oneness, Bliss and Unconditional Love.
