“No man can rise to fame and fortune without
carrying others along with him. It
simply cannot be done.”
This very simple law originates from the fundamental nature of the Universe.
The oneness, the unity and the connectedness.
Since all of us are so indelibly joined by that single source from which each one emanates, there is no way that any of us can harm another without harming oneself.
Years ago, I sat with a great master. He guided and healed the world and the realms. Yet his own son could not be cured of his autism.
I asked him, ” Why is that you have cured people of cancers and your own son is incurable?”
He replied, “I am not the healer. There is only one source of it all.”
Then he told me something so wonderfully profound
“In one of my past lifetimes, I was a spiritual teacher and my son was a disciple. One day I found him interpreting the scriptures inaccurately. I was angry. In my anger I cursed him by saying that he shouldn’t be allowed to communicate with people if he is to interpret the scriptures wrongly.”
“I shouldn’t have been so harsh. I should have had more empathy because he was only doing what he knew. The law of nature is immutable. If I curse another, I automatically curse myself.”
“Since I was a spiritual teacher, my words had power and had to come to pass. In this lifetime, he is cursed with autism, even though he is exceptionally bright. I am cursed to see his suffering, helplessly as his father. I will never forget that lesson.”
This profound law applies to every facet of our lives, be it relationships, business or health. Those who conduct their affairs by exploiting others, those who live by the maxim, ” Show me your money and I’ll see what I can do,” may prosper materially. However, they will bear the brunt of their conduct. That is given; through their own behavior.
In life, nature says, that the maxim has to be changed.
“Give what you can. Help and enrich lives. Then see the wealth flow.”
Why curse oneself, when we have a choice?
Let all be blessed abundantly.
