You know, I get it. I do. But in getting it I find I don’t quite actually get it. God is love. Truth is truth. I AM. My self is eternal and it observes and it thinks in mind. My mind is My Kingdom and the Self is the King within that Kingdom. I need little but desire much in interacting with the material world. My will counteracts my desire falling back to what I need not desire. My desire unless controlled though will traps me in this world and thus I make mistakes. Through Love I have to accept and acknowledge these and make amends. Yes – its all good stuff. But something is wrong here and I do not know what it is…..
This all supposes I act alone.
What if my needs are small and my will has my desire relatively under control but… I have a family – a group of other selfs/souls who do not quite see it that way. Who desire and want. How do I behave then? Do I take on the mantle of provider and try to give what is required out of love? or do I deny them saying they do not need what they think they need and in doing this I act out of love?
This is to me the BIG question. The one I trouble over. Where does selfishness begin and end? If I deny someone something they desire and yet I have the power to provide them – is that Love? Am I being the selfish one? Or are they being selfish?
