New Age "Ownership"
The truth, which the New Age Human realizes is, that no single person, or even a mass of humanity, can lay claim to what is a part of Heavenly land, our planet.Updated: Feb 13, 2004 15:38 IST
We are changing the rules of our realities as we move into the New Age. So the concepts and rules that we were familiar with till date have to be looked at from the perception of the New Age Human, that is from within the superb construction of these new paradigms, if we are not to be left suspended somewhere in a cloud of collision between the old and the New Energies.
The "Ownership Concept" has been a very human way of claiming singular possession of material goods and emotions, relationships and interactions. This social convention has now been put to rest as an outdated premise. The new premise being, that everything belongs to Life, and that its user is also allowed by all of Life!
We have claimed to be sole owners of our properties, moveable and immoveable, and our Law Courts are full of the rule of this 'fight' over them. We also claim to have full ownership rights over our families, that is our parents, our spouses, our children, and in India, even our servants and helpers. Every relationship we enter into presupposes an individual control over it, so much so that we treat each person and relationship in our worlds as our 'property'.
Taking this concept further, we have even divided the Earth into states and countries, claiming sovereign control, and inalienable ownership rights over them. Not content with this much, we also claim to have sole rights of the insides of the Earth within this imaginary divide, and also way up into the atmosphere, as far as our human hearts can picture. To this end, we start wars with other human beings, all in the name of 'protecting' these boundaries.
The truth, which the New Age Human realizes is, that no single person, or even a mass of humanity, can lay claim to what is a part of Heavenly land, our planet. These imaginary lines that we have drawn on the Earth to demarcate what is 'mine' and 'yours', simply does not exist in the Mind of God! To the Mind of God, these pieces of the planet are merely given to some humans to look after, nurture, and use for the fulfilment and pleasure of the beings on its surface.
Yet we, as humans, have never hesitated to kill, loot and plunder, to lay claim to more and more of these bits of Heavenly soil. And even gone a step further to lay waste, plunder and loot all the resources of the land we profess to love, and which we lay sovereign claim to.
We are merely 'stewards' of everything that has been entrusted to us, and that which has been placed in our care, for our lifetime. They have been pout in our care, temporarily, for safe keeping, and when we misuse this 'trust' that has been placed upon us, we move outside the Will of God, and have to suffer the consequences thereof!
Next week we shall see how to apply this Law of Ownership to our lives, and align ourselves with the Divine Concept of what "Ownership" actually means.
