Sharing Is Alignment With the Soul
‘Our evolution now requires us to develop spiritually – To become emotionally aware and make responsible choices. It requires us to align ourselves with the values of the soul – Harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for life.’ – Gary Zukav
Sharing is a natural law and its primary function is to increase supply. Natural law works: a fruit tree shares its fruit, the seeds are scattered, more fruit trees grow. Sharing is also a universal law, ie. whatever is shared expands exponentially.
For instance, games are more fun, when played with or watched with others. You can certainly hug yourself but a heart to heart hug with another is far more enjoyable and rewarding. Certainly, we have the ability to laugh alone but in a hall or auditorium filled with countless people sharing laughter, multiplies and maximizes powerful endorphins. Sharing the euphoric energy of laughter benefits not only those present, but these high-frequency vibrations ripple and radiate throughout the Universe.
‘A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.’ – Denis Waitley
Spontaneously sharing their food with another is a common trait among toddlers. That’s
because it’s instinctual to share. It’s built into our nature. As long as we have not been taught ‘lack consciousness’, we love to share. In our heart of hearts, we know that sharing is good and it makes us feel good.
God has given us two hands – one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing. – Billy Graham
Whatever we share expands and increases in value. When we share happiness, our joy is quadrupled. When we share our lessons learned, we empower ourselves and those who benefit from them. Sharing Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner adds heartfelt energy to the meal, filling the meal and the atmosphere with good vibrations.
‘Part of the healing process is sharing with other people who care.’ – Jerry Cantrell
What about our tragedies and sorrows? Surely if we share sorrow it only brings people down? It depends. When we share heart-to-heart it helps others to realize that they are not alone. Sharing coping skills and lessons learned, helps facilitate the healing process of others. Even if we are perfect strangers, we are all kindred spirits, earth walkers, who share and inevitably face similar experiences.
‘Writing means sharing. It’s part of the human condition to want to share things – thoughts, ideas, opinions.’ – Paulo Coelho
Before Internet and emails, a way for an individual to share with loved ones was through
letter writing. It’s still exciting to get a hand-written letter from someone far away. Hand-written letters and postcards are heart-to-heart links that help souls to survive and thrive. Even today, letters carry an emotional boost for those who are serving in far off countries. Although snail mail is low tech, letters are uniquely filled with uplifting energy. Such an energy boost is invaluable to those in remote locations or isolated situations. Those dear souls who are incarcerated, spring to mind. You can be sure that hand-written letters are worth their weight in gold to such people.
‘Laughter heals all wounds, and that’s one thing that everybody shares. No matter what you’re going through, it makes you forget about your problems. I think the world should keep laughing.’ – Kevin Hart
Sharing laughter has flourished and gone global. Sharing comedy via youtube is so easy thanks to the Internet and corresponding technology. Even comedians like Jeff Dunham and ‘Fluffy’ can be viewed and enjoyed all over the world, including places like Saudi Arabia. This is amazing, as laughter is the shortest distance between hearts, minds, cultures and
‘Whatever life throws at us, our individual responses will be all the stronger for working together and sharing the load.’ – Queen Elizabeth II
Through Social Media such as Facebook and YouTube, we are able to instantly share and view photo’s, poems, stories, information, news and videos worldwide. Thanks to instant sharing, there are no borders around available information anymore. The door to sharing has been thrown wide open. As a result, all sorts of innovation and ideas are rising to the surface. New methods of sharing such as flash mobs and crowd funding, can be found freely available through popular search engines such as Google and Bing.
‘The Internet has introduced an enormously accessible and egalitarian platform for creating, sharing and obtaining information on a global scale. As a result, we have new ways to allow people to exercise their human and civil rights.’ – Vint Cerf
Sharing is rapidly changing the world. Countries such as Belgium, Sri Lanka and more recently India, have acknowledged the inclusive Power of Sharing. Basically, it is a decentralized system of government. The power no longer belongs to Central and State Governments, but rather to local governments. This grass roots democracy is an inclusive system where local governments, made up of different social groups, are part of the whole decision-making, governing process.
‘There is no force so powerful as an idea whose time has come.’ – Everett Dirksen
Power sharing reminds me of how the traditional tribal system in Africa used to work.
Within each home, family decisions were made. A representative from the family attended village meetings as an ‘elder’. A consensus would be reached by all the village elders. The representative from the village elders would take part in decisions at the district level and so on up to the tribal chieftains. Consensus and agreements from the homes are incorporated into the decision-making processes all the way up the ladder to the Chiefs Tribal Council. A pretty fair, simple, effective, and inclusive way of sharing the power of the governing process, wouldn’t you say?
‘Share your happiness; And share others sorrow; – His Holiness Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji Sachchidananda.
