We met recently on the topic of service. Beautiful angles were shared about needing presence in order to serve another; on the need to observe and prevent mechanical goodness; and on being aware of the influence of feminine dominance. We shared angles on essence and how after much work on ourselves, Essence is what we use to serve others.
What about naïveté? As a solar school many of us have this feature. . In order to serve we need wisdom. Serving is not necessarily being nice. There is no right or wrong, no good or bad. We can only serve with presence and wisdom. At times we need to mommy cuddle and at other times we need to be the drill sergeant. Sometimes it’s necessary to break recurrence and buffers with a difficult photograph and at other times silence and holding the energy for the higher to enter is enough. The most difficult is when we need to be truthful with those closest to us…. Parents, partners, siblings, children. Yet, how can we best serve them if we can’t say what is necessary. How does the Higher serve through us if we lack the courage to act on It’s behalf. What about feminine dominance? Have you delayed decisions in your life due to it’s impact on others and the subsequent opinion that will be unleashed on you? What about recurrence? Are you still playing out the same roles with the same people or making the same mistakes because you lack the courage to change it? What will it take to be truly free? Are you Free to be yourself, to follow your heart and what nourishes your Soul?
I struggle with all the above. The Academy has helped me at least realize what is at stake. I understand now that serving is not self-sacrifice, but quite the opposite. I leave you with two beautiful quotes from Emerson. Here he reminds us that we can only serve from our true self. The Work is to know who we are and once we shed all that is false and superfluous, we can gift to the world our very special and unique way of seeing and understanding the world.
Wishing you love, presence and many moments in the miraculous.
“Live no longer to the expectation of these deceived and deceiving people with whom we converse. Say to them, O father, O mother, O wife, O brother, O friend, I have lived with you after appearances hitherto. Henceforward I am the truth’s. Be it known unto you that henceforward I obey no law less than the eternal law. I will have no covenants but proximities. I shall endeavor to nourish my parents, to nourish my family, to be the chaste husband of one wife, – but these relations I must fill after a new and unprecedented way. I appeal from your customs. I must be myself. I cannot break myself any longer for you, or you. If you can love me for what I am, we shall be the happier. If you cannot, I will still seek to deserve that you should. I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, that I will strongly believe before the sun and moon whatever inly rejoices me, and the heart appoints. If you are noble, I will love you; if you are not, I will not hurt you and myself by hypocritical attentions. If you are true, but not in the same truth with me, cleave to your companions; I will seek my own. I do this not selfishly, but humbly and truly. It is alike your interest, and mine, and all men’s, however long we have dwelt in lies, to live in truth. Does this sound harsh to-day? You will soon love what is dictated by your nature as well as mine, and, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. — But so you may give these friends pain. Yes, but I cannot sell my liberty and my power, to save their sensibility.”
“There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better for worse as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried. Not for nothing one face, one character, one fact makes much impression on him, and another none. This sculpture in the memory is not without preéstablishcd harmony. The eye was placed where one ray should fall, that it might testify of that particular ray. We but half express ourselves, and are ashamed of that divine idea which each of us represents. It may be safely trusted as proportionate and of good issues, so it be faithfully imparted, but God will not have his work made manifest by cowards. A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise shall give hint no peace. It is a deliverance which does not deliver. In the attempt his genius deserts him; no muse befriends; no invention, no hope.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
