The universe is designed to be
reflective. Whatever you put out comes to you. This is called 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 ,
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
one which a wonderful of spiritual upliftment. For example,
in your
, you may become inspired with a vision of a future world
filled with
peace and freedom for all.

You may see, in your mind’s eye, a
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
consciously aware of their heart’s to the hearts of each and
other human being on the planet. In this supportive environment,
everyone has
complete freedom to express their unique as their
contribution to a
loving society.

As you breathe deeply of the clean, fresh air in
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
love and gratitude to the Earth and the Sun, and wait in quiet
anticipation as
those great, conscious beings send their love and inspiration to you in

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

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
for themselves. If you now give that state, that , that feeling of
inspiration away to the group consciousness of humanity, then you have
created a
vacuum within yourself.

By the law of action and reaction, that
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

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

It is also the basis of the ancient path of Karma Yoga –
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
continually higher states of inspiration along your own spiritual path.
