Meditation for this 2002-07-31"We must seek to unite heaven and earth within us, this is very important. In other words, we must learn to live with our divine ideal, but at the same time not lose sight of the realities of our life on earth. This is true equilibrium. But because this is difficult to achieve, we either see idealists who have very little grasp of what is going on around them, or materialists who are completely obsessed by the necessities of earthly life. The good thing about a spiritual teaching is that it trains people to understand that they are on earth to work, whilst their inner life is fully devoted to the realization of their divine ideal. They become one with this ideal, they merge with it without losing sight of the reality of earth. These are the people of the future."Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov
THINGS AS THEY AREFor generations, indeed for centuries, we have been brought up in certain grooves of thought, certain traditions and habits, until our brains become wedged into a confined rut and are unable to look at things from a new angle.Vera Stanley AlderCopyright © 1968
From a lifetime of personal experiences, lessons and a multitude of formal, informal, traditional, and non-traditional education, I have come to understand that we are all Ministers of some sort. I have also come to understand that we all have been blessed with one or more of what I call Motivational Gifts. What is the definition of minister, motivation and gift?
Minister: The act of serving; ministration, one that serves as a means; a person or thing through which something is accomplished, an authorized diplomatic representative
Motivation: to provide with an incentive; move to action; impel, something that motivates; an inducement or incentive, a motivating force, stimulus, or influence, to excite
Gift: something that is bestowed voluntarily and without compensation; a talent, a notable capacity, talent, or endowment, something voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation, the act, right, or power of giving, a special ability for doing something. Gift often implies special favor by God or nature
For most of my life I did not give myself credit for the gifts SPIRIT had blessed me with. I also did not acknowledge in any way that I had something of value to offer the world. I had a very low self-esteem, yet I still had a strong desirer to Love and do for others, even those who intentionally did things to hurt me. When I was in my early thirties I started to realize that SPIRIT had truly given me something special, something that I had only equated to those who served in the capacity minister in religious organizations. That awareness led me down the path of becoming a minister in a religious organization.
Later my eyes were opened even wider and I realized that everyone was a minister. I came to understand that ministers were not limited to being connected to a religious organization. I now know that we all are ministers. Yes, "You Are A Minister." We all are ministers! It is time that we start to look at ourselves as such, that will cause us to raise our standards and be that which we have been created to be. We are ministers in our jobs, we are ministers in our homes, we are ministers in all that we do. We are authorized diplomatic representatives of The DIVINE, and we must carry ourselves as such at all times. That is an awesome responsibility and it is not easy, however it is a responsibility that we have been prepared to handle. We simply must still ourselves, go within, and receive Divine directions from SPIRIT.
A few years after I was awakened to the fact that I was created a minister and needed no validation from a religious organization, my eyes were also opened to the reality that we all have one or more Motivational Gifts. A motivational gift is something that drives us, something that impels us to go that extra mile. A motivational gift brings fulfillment, joy and satisfaction when and after we operate through it. I have two major motivational gifts, Lover and Servant. Lover is my primary gift, I was aware of that gift at the very young age of 5. I did not understand it then but I was aware of it. Not understanding it brought me much pain, but when my understanding was finally opened to my motivational gift of Love the many years of pain were completely wiped away.
Next I was wakened to the reality of my second motivational gift, Servant. Who wants to be a servant? That is not something that many seek out. However, after truly understanding that as I serve others I am also serving Divine Will, even when those I served did not appreciate it. As I understood more about my gift I longed to serve as many people as I possibly could. If we look at all of the Masters such as Buddha and Jesus we would see that they were servants, we would see that they lived to serve others. I Love life because I am able to serve. I can not imagine living life fully without being able to serve. If you want to take your life to the next level, find out what your motivational gift is. If you already know your motivational gift, you can still take your life to the next level by committing yourself more to that motivational gift. In doing that you will assist others in finding more satisfaction in their life as well.
