We are all here to live every situation you can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life. Murray Kibblewhite
CASE STUDY – GOING BEYOND MATERIALISM
Ramtha, page 96 says, “You all made the journey. That is not only splendid of you, it is also rather daring of you, and there is a bit of risk involved. There is a great possibility, through the transfiguration of the great immortal self into the material plane, of losing one’s identity and become wholly embroiled in survival. And, alas, that is what most of humanity has done.”
When comparing Ramtha’s approach to that of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs it, in my opinion, becomes obvious that most people stay on the first two levels, Survival (Physiological) and Safety, of the Hierarchy. These are the levels of Materialism.
For those who take the risk to evolve further, then the next three levels of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs are required: –
3rd level – Love and Belonging by participation in Groups
4th level – Self Esteem by becoming Recognised for Yourself
5th level – Self Actualisation through creating own ideas
Ask yourselfdo you want to remain entrapped in Materialism always worrying about your income and expenses, how to grow your asset values and wanting to live a “better” life?
Why not tryto become more than you presently are? Join a group or club and become involved with something you are passionate about.
Then take the lead and get others to join you in developing your ideas and desires.
All the time, look for opportunities to express your ideas, such as daily writing your ideas in a journal, add to a model or craft work you have developed or draw, write or plan your own thoughts.
Now is the time to move on!
Every person needs to go beyond the first and second levels of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to become what they are fully capable of.
Learn to participate in Groups and become a Leader.
Learn to express your own ideas by writing a book or poetry; drawing or painting; play a musical instrument or write your own music; become an actor or dancer; design clothes, houses or software! The list is endless.
Start today. Create something today and every day.
All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what are the real lessons to be learnt?
