To be a worker of the light a preparer of the way it’s helpful to focus on one of three energies: love, joy, or peace. Pick the one you think will be easiest or the most desirable in your life. In order to prepare the way for one of these energies, you need all of them, but pick just one for identification purposes. I am a being of love. I am a being of joy. I am a being of peace.
Think of it as a job description. Once you understand what the job is, you must learn how to demonstrate it successfully. Wherever you find yourself daily in life is the place for practice.
Create a symbol to remind you of this energy – wear it, associate a color with it, write it on your mirror, post it on the refrigerator, or write it on the dashboard. Do whatever it takes to remind yourself of this energy that is your special job as a light being.
As with a job description, write down the activities, thoughts, behaviors, gifts, and ways to express a demonstration of this energy. List the job’s goals. List specific activities and details. E.g., to bring joy, smile; to bring love, show compassion and bring comfort; to bring peace, work with interfaith activities, such as the Habitat for Humanity.
Don’t choose joy if you think of yourself as shy and retiring or need lots of approval. If you are too fond of another’s approval, you won’t be able to demonstrate love, either. You must be bold to demonstrate love. It requires courage to forget about you. Peace is about bringing people of differing ideas together for the greater good, such as sharing food with those who are hungry. By the way, mark your calendars for each Sunday to remember to bring food donations for the food bank. Give away is part of preparing the way for peace. But if you are too busy or feel unworthy, peace is not for you.
Uh, oh. Looks like you can either learn this job as a way of life or be guilty, angry, frustrated, and disappointed.
Add I am a preparer of the way, a light being of ______ and I accept this truth into my life now to your daily prayers or meditation practices.
You are going to have barriers. So what? When you really want something, you find a way to get it. You manage to create whatever is important to you in your life. Mostly demonstrating these energies costs nothing. Smiles are free. Compassion is free.
However, being a preparer of the way will cost you your pride. Fear prevents you from being a being of light, from being a spiritual master. Get over yourself. Little self is of no value. Eternal life is freedom from all the little deaths created by fear.
Notice, I am not giving you a choice to not be a preparer of the way. Which if the three energies will you choose? If you need to, “fake it till you make it.” Eventually it will become real. Be bold!
