What Can I Call Mine Anyway?


Thoughts of a Lightworker

Have you ever realized that we are all completely made of borrowed stuff? That, there is nothing we can call our own? Not even our Soul!

Ponder on this:

Our physical bodies are provided forms by our parents. Each cell, each atom, each drop of blood in the physical body is “borrowed” from the parents.

They in their turn, have “borrowed” it from our grandparents and the story thus goes backwards right upto grandmother Eve who the scripture tells us, was created by a rib borrowed from Adam.

Adam in his turn was created by God who took the materials for his body from the five elements!

The etheric or bioplasmic body is an integral part of the “borrowed” physical body.

The Emotional body is also equally “borrowed” in the sense that our emotions are all conditioned by the seniors of our families, social background and our respective cultures. Responses to grief for example, differs from culture to culture. When a loved one dies, we cry while in some cultures, they make joyous celebration, as the soul is now returning “Home!”

The Mental body is formed on “borrowed” concepts, value systems and other such ideas which are taught to us from childhood by parents, teachers, peer groups and the books we read. Our exposure to the thoughts of scientists, philosophers, economists, spiritual leaders, artists and writers further form our ideas and thoughts. No way can a human being avoid the influence of socio-cultural conditioning of his time.

Neither is our Soul owned by us! Theosophy explains that our souls are sparks of Divine Energy. So both our incarnated and Higher Souls are “borrowed” from God.

The only thing we can be sure of, is that we and God are one!

Does it not, therefore, logically follow that, if we are all made of “borrowed stuff” where is any reason for being proud? Because pride stems from the concept of I, ME, MINE – a concept which has no basis in truth. There is NOTHING CALLED MINE in our entire get up. Right?

It also logically follows that if we are parts of God, then our perspective of life should automatically be the same as God’s perspective of life – i.e. loving kindness, compassion, de-attachment and impartiality – all finally culminating in the concept of oneness with all.

End PL Collections

Aren’t these the qualities we are supposed to cultivate in order to evolve as souls and be ultimately God like in the end?

Think about it while reading the SOHAM poster next time.

    God created man in his own image and likeness. The day we receive a call to follow the spiritual path, a call to become communicators of the teachings and shape our lives according to the teachings, the word of God and the Divine plan, we become co-creators with God. We can tap the energies that the teachings and the Word of God supplies to being totally committed to what is good. We can respond to its invitation to keep advancing steadily on the path of generosity, forgiveness, honesty, committed service, goodwill and the will to do good, and much more to help us evolve. It is for this reason that it is said, ‘God’s glory is the human being fully alive.’ Thus we are one with God, one with all.

    Thank you all of you for your responses. Sorry for being late in responding back to you all. As a light worker I am so happy to know that this article has touched all of you which such positive response. As I understand the job of a light worker is to spread light as much as possible all around and thus the darkness will be slowly pushed back. To know this small article has been able like a small candle to help light other candles in your personal life, it gives me great satisfaction and happiness in thinking that I have been able to do a little bit of my job.
