Subject: “Exemplification of Self.”
Teacher Ophelius: “The
message for today is about the ‘exemplification of self.’ What do I mean by this? The exemplification
of self is a state of mind where you are consciously aware of your thoughts and actions around others, and how you affect
their spiritual wellness by being a living example of Godlikeness to all who come in contact with you. This process
of mindfulness of thought is something that should be practiced regularly and should also include sharpening your listening
skills so that you may be able to pick up on the subtle needs and desires of those who want your help, but are not likely
to ask for it. By including spirit in on the discernment of these needs, you develop a ‘feed back’ system
to analyze and devise a plan to be most effective in serving the spiritual needs of the intended individual.
keeping your ego in check, you focus in on the individual in need and consider the whole person, their background, their social
and educational status, their personal relationships with others -- including yourself, their childhood if known, and the
current circumstance or situation that is challenging them in the present moment. Having done this preliminary examination,
ask your guides how to best approach and serve this person.
may be that you only need to ask how they are and then be a good listener. You may just make subtle suggestions or ask
thought provoking questions. Sometimes recounting a related experience in your own life and how you handled it may be
helpful, or it could be just a simple smile in passing making known that you are someone who is kind and loving. It
is this constant monitoring of your thoughts about how you may serve others that is the key to being a living example.
students on the path, are the salt of the earth and you must go the extra mile. Being thus awakened spiritually, more
is expected of you, and so, in obedience to the Will of the Creator, you are given these special tools to be used to serve
others. When you are open to receive insights and answers on how to serve, you become a channel for the creative force
to flow through you. Use this creative force to become a living example so that others will benefit by the light of
your spirit. When you rise each morning ask, ‘Who may I serve today Father?’ Then watch for the signposts
or the opportunity to help someone in need. This is the way of the workers of light.
