The First Step to Putting Out the Flames of Anger
Key Lesson: There is only one reason why any human being ever dances in the fire of any kind of anger: he has yet to discover the parts of himself that love flames.
We Reap What We Sow
In these so-called progressive times, this all but forgotten principle that we reap what we sow is as simple as it is prophetic. Share this simple fact with someone who hates his life, and he will hate you for the truth you tell about why he feels as he does!
If we are ever to realize the integrity and consistent kindness of our True Nature, if we long to know something of heaven while we live on earth, then we must sow the seeds that bring that higher life into fruition.
One cannot expect to reap what one does not sow; and merely hoping for a higher life is not sowing true spiritual seeds, any more than climbing an imagined mountain is the same as reaching its top.
To sow spiritual seeds means that we do spiritual work. Spiritual work is always interior work first, even if, as a matter of course, this work becomes manifest through exterior action. What is this interior work by which we sow the seeds of the celestial within us? Following is one way to sow the seeds of a higher and happier life:
We must deliberately remember our intention to start our whole life over every moment we awaken to find ourselves reliving some past conflict. To cultivate this refreshed outlook, born of remembering that our true life is always new in the Now, is to let go of who we have been and to begin reaping a life free of anger and fear.
If we wish a life that is whole and loving, one that is filled with new light, then we must sow these eternal seeds within ourselves; that is our work. Make your own list of ways to work at sowing the seeds of the higher life. Set your self to the task of being an inwardly awake person and watch how you begin to reap the awareness that makes all things possible.
