This Is What I Am Here For
Like each of us, I owe something for the gifts which life has offered me. I want to repay my part for what it's worth. I have had the opportunity to consider and at times apply the balm of Ageless Wisdom teachings which the greatest hearts of all have offered us all, and which for me is the most precious treasure, beyond measure. My only hope is to somehow offer you the same opportunity, to express your hearts highest and deepest yearning.
I am happy, in any way, to offer even a single meaningful moment. I couldn't hope for more, because that is exactly what I hope for in this life. That is how it happens; as a yearning arising in the heart; as a wish to offer something meaningful. I know one thing; whatever we are here to do, we are here to share, and in sharing we are together and that is most meaningful; for it is our purpose & salvation to become complete in what we share. True compassion is a higher form of love, not just to find happiness, but to know it's true cause & to help see it shared everywhere. There is no goodness apart from our own hearts love.
It's true all motive springs from self interest & that is why we should seek to align our own self interest with the well-being of each other & all life. Love can be many things, including passion & desire. Let this be our blessing to have a passion for compassion. ~ The heart yearns for happiness, always seeking what it finds most attractive. Even gravity itself is a kind of love, without that there is no power to create.
The society we live in is structured on quite a different foundation. Capitalism has become merely materialism because it has valued money above all; and this is a false value because the things most important in our lives are priceless; Air, water, health, safety, relationship, growth, love & wisdom. A culture of materialism binds us to money which supports a largely impersonal life with a price on everything, so we become isolated from each other; effectively captive dependents of false values.
In our hearts we know this, because we feel the wounds of our dissatisfaction, which materialism further exploits, offering false remedies for our condition. Money has become the universal drug we have been pushed to abuse, to be dependent upon and enslaved to. If we are ever to be free of our bondage we must deny giving power to our delusions, and acknowledge the power of our hearts true aspiration.
Awakening to our highest values we can become trustworthy fearless compatriots, truly serving our wholesome best interest, thus healing the wounds of our separateness and dissatisfaction. This is why I feel obligated to promote the ideals of spiritual living, which I have come to call A Rosemont Way & life's temple, spiritual community, which I will call A Rosemont Fellowship. This is what I am here for.
