It is fair to say that at some point in all our lives, we have had someone there urging us on to get a job done: it could have been a school teacher, our parents, or our boss. The fact is that throughout life there is a core part of our relationships with each other that involves generating and ensuring the movement of our bodies towards an end result – such as a school project, the grass being cut at home, a financial deadline for your company. These are a normal part of life and we all seem to know pretty well how to respond to them with the physicality that we hold.
But what if there is a call to action and no one is asking you to do it – when the choice and the reason to move your body has come from you?
When I observe Serge Benhayon and his family, I see this being lived. I see people who are responding to a call that is far greater than the immediacy of job satisfaction. These are people who are willing to work long hours at whatever task is being asked of them, with the full understanding that what they do is for everyone.
If we take Serge Benhayon as an example, you will see that everything he has done, all the work he has produced, has come from his choice to do so. There has not been another person making him do it. The choice to move in the way he does, which produces the work he gives to everyone, comes from him. And even when Serge and his family are criticised by those who do not understand him or his work, he continues to offer himself completely to all that he does without arrogance or the need for recognition. He simply carries on.
I find this incredibly inspiring because in life in general, are we not taught to move our bodies in a way that is focussed on doing things mainly for recognition and personal gain? That is, to act in response to the promise of some kind of personal reward? Which I have noticed can lead to thoughts of – why would I ever do anything for any other reason than for what it will bring to me? And these thoughts can be incredibly subtle, and sometimes they may even be cloaked in acts of ‘good-will’, but still with the underlying intention and motivation to be seen, recognised, and accepted.
However, what I have also come to realise is that this way of interacting with the world can actually be a terrible trap that keeps us all back from truly expressing ourselves and from bringing everything we have to offer to our families and communities.
For example, I have experienced that when I move my body with the intent of doing something that is purely for self-gain, this can actually generate a lot of motivation, activity and momentum which can feel like purpose. And so on we go, trundling through life making things happen and gaining the rewards promised by those activities and their inevitable outcomes. But in the meantime, illness rates are skyrocketing out of control and diseases are so complex now that the medical industry is struggling to keep up with what is being presented by our modern human bodies. And to add to all of that, as if that wasn’t enough, we have more psychological illnesses than ever before, along with extreme human atrocities being carried out by governing groups in some parts of the world.
So, my question is: is it really working to have movement that is driven by self-gain?
However, if there is no self in the outcomes of what we do, then why do it? And who is asking us to do it? And who will be there to see it? And why do it if no one knows?
What I have observed from being with the Benhayon family and especially with Serge Benhayon, is that without the pressure from an outer source that promises a reward, the only thing left is absolute, true and coming from the core of who you are: it is your Divine or Universal PURPOSE.
Therefore, You Do What Needs To Be Done, Simply Because It Is To Be Done.
Which means that you are free to move in a way that is not driven by the ideals that are promised, but by a greater call that is universal in its intent. Therefore and with this, you are accountable only to yourself and the choices that you have made which will reflect your intentions – whether they are for the all or just for your own private life.
That is not to say that no one is to have a well cared for life, as self-love is in fact the cornerstone of care for each other. Self-love indeed negates the need to be identified by what we do, allowing us to openly care because that is what is required and not because it determines who we are or our value. Your worth and your value need not be hinged on the outcomes of your actions, but in close relationship with the essence of your being.
And with this relationship we can in fact then choose to ask – ok, what is the purpose of my being in this place at this time… knowing that you have the resources to give what will be asked for? This is amazing, but true. You do in fact have everything that is required for any given moment to be an evolutionary moment for everyone involved. Your universal voice is the one that matters.
So, isn’t it worth exploring what you can contribute when what you contribute has a universal purpose behind it, one that expands and evolves every single person on earth, including and starting with you?
Aren’t you worth exploring the purpose that is available when you say no to that outer source that tells you what you are worth by measuring what you can achieve?
If there is one thing in this life that we can all equally apply ourselves to, regardless of race, nationality or culture, it is to establish a relationship with our true and divine purpose.
The essential core of this teaching for each of us is however, to establish what are our motivating factors as we move and walk through life, and to do this we must be willing to see all the outcomes and the consequences of all our individual and collective choices – because with this awareness we can learn by and constantly re-adjust the choices we are making.
Coming back to true purpose is a journey, but not one that is impossible or only reserved for the special few. It is there for everyone equally. It is there for you. And with an open and loving heart, which will give you an open and loving mind, we are able to learn from and be inspired by the incredible role models we have such as the Benhayon Family and the many other people who have lived and continue to live here throughout time in accordance to the true purpose that is available to us all.
