Running up an escalator

Week 24, MKMMA, 3-17-16

 

Reading this week’s lessons in Haanel, 23.22, it says: “This week concentrate on the fact that man is not a body with a spirit, but a spirit with a body, and that is the reason that his desires are incapable of any permanent satisfaction in anything not spiritual.”, and reminds me of how people are on the hamster wheel.  They have created an image to impress others and in so doing they have enslaved themselves like to running on an escalator, striving like hell but going nowhere or getting ahead.  In such situations there is no peace of mind.  One of the main points of my dmp is peace of mind and being able to put my head on the pillow at night and getting a good night’s sleep.  When we strive for material possessions there is no peace.  It is only when we focus on serving others that we are truly blessed.
