By Raphael Awen
And for how long we longed after some door external to us to find our magic, our light, our sparkle, when the door was in our own inner garden all along.
If this is true, then what seems to predispose us all to look outward or to an other?
We have been convinced that the self is ‘selfish,’ an inherently bad word and a very bad thing, when in truth until you become truly and deeply selfish, youcan in no wise inherit the kingdom of God, for this kingdom and queendom is inside you.
To be fully selfish is to do and be what brings you the fullest and deepest pleasure. How could that not be to the fullest and deepest pleasure of all of life and every living thing around you.
Shortchanging yourself is shortchanging the world and everyone around you.
Your problem isn’t that you are self centred, it is that you are not centred in yourself enough to the true degree and depths of that which you really are and with what you really want.
Give up the pretence that you have no self-interest for when in fact, as a self, that is all you have.
Show me your most noble self-less act, and then show me how you are not deriving a personal return from it.
Until we reconcile this inside of ourselves, the door to our own inner garden of our magic remains sealed.
How could it be any different?
