The Spirit of God (The Spirit Essence of Truth and Divine Love) is a Spirit that constantly gives all that it possesses. As we awaken to our true Identity within this Spirit of Life, we too abide in a continual state of giving from an endless abundance.
Fashioned in our Creator’s likeness, we are an ever-flowing fountain of the attributes of Truth (eternal peace, ever-present joy, invulnerability, unconditional love, divine harmony, perfect abundance, holiness, etc). As these attributes pour through us, they are reflected back to us from our reality, but in greater expressions than what we gave, thus we gain, which in turn we are able to continually give more. As we give from this endless abundance, others gain and so do we. Thus, the fruit of giving is pure joy that is experienced by all.
Giving is gain. It is the source of ever-present joy.
Divine attributes are expressed through divine emergence, and only through emergence. Emergence is the divine presence of God orchestrating our experiential reality through our thoughts and expressions for the highest good of all. Because knowing what the highest good for all is beyond our knowing, we rest as an open gate as the supra-consciousness of the Mind of God shapes our reality through our consciousness. This dynamic is the nature of our oneness with God. Emergence is divine harmony expressed, experienced and known from our Source, through us and to others. It is the flow of the divine attributes from the divine Mind, through our fractal component of the divine Mind giving shape and experience to the reality of forms. It is a continual act of God’s expressed love to all through us and therefore to us.
When we rest in emergence, we are constantly extending the divine attributes into reality in a perfection beyond our conscious awareness. Because what we give, we receive, in emergence we are constantly receiving expressions of the divine attributes back from our reality.
Giving, in accordance to Truth, is gain and not sacrifice or loss to anyone because the source of giving is the Eternal Source of Abundance, God. The idea of sacrifice comes from the finite sleeping mind, which inherently believes it is separate from its divine Source. Because it believes in lack, it creates a reality of lack. Perception is reality.
Giving begins with our thoughts.
The likeness in which we imagine others and situations is what we create. Our imagination is the creative center of our mind. If we imagine lack, sacrifice and loss, this is what we manifest. To create a reality in which all gain, we first recognize giving begins with our imagination.
What we imagine for others is one of the most significant ways we give (the essence of prayer). When we fill our imaginations with the expressions of divine attributes, we hold in our thoughts the experiences and feelings of unalterable and continual peace, joy, harmony, abundance, and etc. for others. For example, through our imagination we create a peaceful scenario in another’s life, and therefore we give them what we know we consciously possess in Truth. Likewise, we can give any spiritual attribute we are aware of such that others can be benefited by these attributes. As we let go of contradictory imaginings and rest in emergence, by which these attributes are translated into forms and experiences in reality, these imaginings are perfectly expressed in reality. To give our imagination to Truth is fundamental in experiencing true abundant giving that manifests ever-present joy.
Joy is the fruit of Giving.
When we begin to awaken, this all important element of Truth that states Giving is Gain can be hard to accept in certain areas of our lives where we convinced ourselves that we don’t have enough, giving is loss, or giving demands sacrifice. It isn’t giving that demands sacrifice or loss, but our belief in sacrifice that creates reflections like itself. However, as we continue to give our faith to Truth and give from a mindset of abundance, our reality will testify to this Truth by returning to us more than what we gave and therefore strengthening our belief in it.
Giving is pure joy, and joy is the reflection of our true inner being. Our nature is to continually give of our endless Source and therefore be a reflection of that Source into Creation.
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. ~ 2 Corinthians 9:7
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” ~ Luke 6:38
