"Dear Saint-Germain, I am a minister who enjoys New Spirituality. But at times, I have difficulty teaching people the truth about their spiritual awareness. This makes me feel mean. Also, when I try to be kind to people, the next thing you know they're depending on me. I would like to know about my life lesson with this."
My good friend, I AM Saint-Germain. You speak of lessons for you in this, so one of the first things that I would like to do is address this question. In this lifetime, your Soul is encouraging you to explore, understand and experience your spiritual freedom. This is one of the most important areas of Soul purpose for you in this lifetime.
Yet, one of the greatest challenges that you will face in this area is your struggle between dependence and independence. Freedom is very important to you, and for this reason, the burden of commitment can keep you feeling stuck, or wanting to move on. You may find yourself being impatient with people who are more cautious than you, and discover that you’re abandoning the spiritual values that matter most to you… values that are expressed in the commitments to people, places, and projects that you undertake in life.
You may become impatient with people who don’t understand the importance of their spiritual awareness, or who rely upon you to save them from their ignorance, because this is actually an issue that your Soul is having you address in this lifetime.
Spiritual Freedom and Self Reliance.
Earlier in this life, or perhaps in former lifetimes, you may have paid too much attention to social convention or the expectations of society. It may have been more important for you to “fit in” or be liked, than to stand up for your own truth or desires. In the process, you may have compromised parts of yourself in order to please and accommodate others.
Decisiveness and a willingness to act without hesitation, are qualities that your Soul is asking you to develop now. Another issue may be courage and confidence, because you don’t always feel self-assured when you’re confronted with the need to act.
In this lifetime, you naturally feel the need to let conventional roles give way to a more exciting, truthful, and passionate nature. This IS part of your Soul’s purpose for you. As you dare to follow through on what truly excites you and speaks to your curiosity, you leave behind the parts of you that would prefer to compromise what you want out of life, in order to please or not displease others.
You’re here to develop a greater sense of inner, spiritual freedom and self-reliance – which is a big part of your Soul’s purpose in this lifetime. And precisely because of this. you will have a natural tendency to seek sanctuary and seclusion away from others. To not want to engage in too much social intercourse or communication with others.
In fact, this need for spiritual freedom is strongly associated with your desire to maintain your independence and not become attached to others, or have them too attached to you. You may feel that you’re being “mean and heartless” in this, but at another level you are responding to a legitimate impulse from your Soul.
Living According to Higher Truths.
You have many past lifetime associations in which you sought to live according to Higher Truths, and now you feel a strong need to do the same. All matters of spirituality strike a deep chord of resonance within you.
However, one of the drawbacks for you, is that you can get into situations where your relationships become one of victim and savior. In particular, with your chosen focus as a minister, you will naturally receive the projections of congregation members who want a spiritual leader to guide or save them. In the same way, you may project an unconscious attitude toward them making them feel that they need this, and that you are obligated to provide it for them.
This is going to clash with one of the important Soul purpose tasks in your life, which is to celebrate your spiritual freedom and not get caught up in these kinds of “salvation and rescue” efforts. Attracting people like this to you will cause you to feel burdened and encumbered in life. Yet with your public role as a minister, you’re going to feel badly if you don’t make yourself available to people who may want you to guide or save them – whether they’re doing this consciously or unconsciously.
Changing Your Attitude.
The Soul-level solution to your dilemma has to do with a change of inner attitude, more than a change of outer occupation. Clearly, you can choose to resign your position and there is nothing either right or wrong with this. Just as there is nothing essentially right or wrong about staying on. But the real key here, seems to be your attitude about your ministry – no matter what role you choose to play.
I would suggest that it might be very useful for you to orient your ministry toward serving others, and not saving or rescuing them. A service-oriented focus would be less about inspiring or communicating higher truths, and more about helping people find practical ways to incorporate these truths into their lives. Enabling people to help themselves, is not the same thing as being a surrogate savior. Understandably, the latter would make you feel uncomfortable.
Here is something that might help you find a better solution to your situation:
When it comes to communicating the higher truths that you care about, the best way to teach these truths to others, is to make a committed effort to embody them yourself. Teach others by the example of your life.
This is how Jesus, Gandhi and many others have instructed you. They didn’t allow themselves to be used or depleted by others, even as they ministered to their needs. Instead, they were wonderful examples of demonstrating the freedom of the Soul to others, even while living with the joys and limitations of human life; and they came here to show others how to do the same.
And I’d like to suggest that this is the path that your Soul is offering you, too. Your role of ministry may be big or small. But the main thing for you to remember is that your inner attitude toward spiritual freedom is what matters most of all.
You are dearly loved my friend, I AM Saint-Germain.
