The universe is designed to be
reflective. Whatever you put out comes back to you. This is the Law of
Action and Reaction, the Law of Karma, or is simply referred to using the
phrase, “What goes around comes around.”

However, in spiritual work,
there is a way to increase what comes around. What goes around can actually come
back as more than you gave, and this involves a paradox.

In your
spiritual practices, you can generate a deep feeling of peace and
inspiration;
one which brings a wonderful sense of spiritual upliftment. For example,
in your
, you may become inspired a vision of a future world
filled with
peace and freedom for all.

You may see, in your mind’s eye, a
future
world where everyone on the planet is safe, and where you can journey to
anywhere on the planet with ease. In this future, you see that everyone
is
consciously of their heart’s connection to the of each and
every
other being on the planet. In this supportive environment,
everyone has
complete freedom to express their unique creativity as their
contribution to a
loving society.

As you breathe deeply of the clean, fresh air in
that
vision of the future, you feel your connection to the Mother Earth and
to the
life-giving Sun which shines ceaselessly upon our world. Then, you send
your
love and to the Earth and the Sun, and wait in quiet
anticipation as
those great, conscious beings send their love and inspiration to you in
return.

While in that of deep inspiration, it occurs to you that
most of
humanity desperately needs this type of upliftment; that most souls on
this
planet today are starving in a self-, spiritual wilderness. This
brings
you to the realization that you have the to be of service to
humanity through an act of self-sacrifice; through an act of giving up
that
which you have in order to help others who would not otherwise be
helped.

While in this state, the sense of unconditional love that you
have for
humanity virtually begs you to help those who are not yet equipped to do
this
for themselves. If you now give that state, that energy, that feeling of
inspiration away to the consciousness of humanity, then you have
created a
vacuum within yourself.

By the law of action and reaction, that
vacuum
must be filled. However, an act of self-sacrifice in service to others
has a
side-effect: It raises the frequency of your consciousness higher than
it was
before. So, when the vacuum becomes filled with inspiration and
upliftment from
the universe, it is filled with an even higher frequency of
consciousness than
before.

Because of that, you will have become more inspired and
more
uplifted than ever before. By the act of sacrificing that which you had,
you
will actually gain more than you had before. Such is the paradox of love
in
action.

It is also the basis of the ancient path of Karma Yoga –
the
pathway to God through action and service.

By giving spiritual
energy to
humankind, you tread a pathway of spiritual action. This powerful
pathway of
giving what you have, in order to inspire others, is one that leads you
to
continually higher states of inspiration along your own spiritual path.
