If you haven’t read parts one and two …
Today I’d like to add supporting ideas that have come to me and through me. First, I’m sure you’ve heard of the Golden Rule:
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
About eight years ago, I wrote this article: The Golden Rule, with a twist! The twist?
Do unto yourself as you would do unto others.
If that catches you off-guard, hopefully you’ll let your curiosity take you to the article!
Secondly, my husband has a definition of sin which may help. He suggests that doing anything which intentionally harms another constitutes sin. Yet, if what I am about to do does not cause you harm and it helps me, then it is “okay”.
Finally, a very wise messenger named Benjamin helped me to see more clearly the idea that what is good for me is good for the whole. He asked me to see myself, the conscious spiritual being that I am, as part of the unified whole. We are all one – we are all part of the entirety of consciousness. As this one being, the activity of receiving (or of doing kind things “for me”), is actually allowing the whole, the one consciousness, to receive. I receive, I do for myself, and the whole is gifted.
As with everything I write, and for that matter, everything you read or hear, please: Take what you like and leave the rest! Try on new ideas, see how they resonate in your life. If they do – use them! If they don’t, release them! If they were meant for you, they will return when you are ready to hear them.
What part of “just for me” is “just for you” NOW?
