Service

One of the best quotes I ever heard by Oprah, is be of service and to be excellent at it, then success is by default.

My father loved the word “excellent” he never was satisfied with “very good”, even worse “good”, not to even speak of anything less. He was a man full of confidence in his daughter. He never saw me as anything less than a Queen, a Goddess and he treated me as such ( no he wasn’t close to perfect, he had a negative side to that too same as everyone ).. However, I wouldn’t trade any lesson he taught me directly or indirectly for any other thing in this world.. Excellence seemed like a perfect score” he called me excellence” he would check on the remarks the teacher gave before he checked on the position or percentage level.. I always wondered why..

Recently, I’ve been re-evaluating myself in all my growth areas and I have realized that I didn’t accept that I was excellent not until now ! ( Damn!! that hurt me deeply) and this was a remarkable discovery I woke up to one beautiful morning.. I realized I was born excellent, I grew up in excellence by excellent parents . As a matter of fact I am magnificent! I am excellence!! wow .. what a relief .. Next came the question, how does my excellence be of service ?

In my last post I wrote about “The temple”, https://barisity.com/2020/06/23/the-temple/ ( the true meaning behind the temple), you know, sometimes we as a people need a gentle reminder that we are uniquely different. What do you do in a temple? You serve isn’t it? You were taught to be of service.. How?? By cleaning, directing, organizing, singing etc.. Now that you know what a temple really really is, how do you serve ? It’s quite simple !! You serve, by being your best self and doing it all over and over and over again every single day . That’s how you become excellent!! Excellence is a skill birth from commitment..

When you master yourself, you become aware of your strengths and weaknesses. Being of service simply means putting them to good use at every given moment. If there is one skill you should learn in life, how to master yourself” is just that. You have to learn to serve yourself ! Learn to listen to yourself, learn to observe yourself, learn to acknowledge yourself , learn to tolerate yourself , learn to communicate with yourself .. before you can ever truly be of service to anyone or any group of people you have to be of service to your own damn self!!

The call you are waiting on, the romance you are expecting, the career you hope for, the dream vacation you’re planning on are all experiences that you believe would make you happier. Now imagine, if you can organize, clean and prioritize your emotions and thoughts to focus on these things ( which are all in your temple of course ), what do you think you’re doing? You are simply serving yourself to fulfill your wishes and make you happier !! So it is in businesses, to really be excellent in a business, one has to KNOW THE TEMPLE and the people who patronize that temple ..

Dedication is major key here, anything worth doing is worth doing well they say.. How about, you do yourself well enough and see how everything around you becomes an extended version of you ?!

Be of true service .. by mastering yourself and become excellent at YOURSELF through hard work ( which is real hard work, because you learn on the job).Most people think mastery is a destination, a junction. No it isn’t.. You learn everyday, in every experience and you have to be open minded to be one who learns everyday ( that’s the hard part I believe ).

To serve God is to know yourself and when you do, you become THE TRUTH and of course “the truth shall set you free”.

To lead is to serve and to serve, is to be of service.

Know your temple and be of service!

With love…

The temple

The mind is a hall like a temple there are ways in and ways out ( doors & windows) which we call portals ..

The ways in are the things we perceive and experience same as the ways out. If you can find the beginning you have found the end. The day you decide you are taking full responsibility for your action is the day everything changes. You’re whole life changes !!

The world is a holographic memory of what we want to see (we only see what we want to see.. ). Everything and everyone has a choice and everyone is FREE by default but as programs set in from an early stage, the molding begins..

If you don’t let yourself go (as in, remove your self from outside of these memories, people and environment you will keep yourself locked in a hall that is filled with so many unnecessary people. ( like people living in your headspace ) it’s all holographic .. Like a memory replaying in it’s loop until you find the record engine and take action when READY!.. The key here is, If you don’t like something, stop it before it spreads like a virus .. This is how life works.. not for one to be a perfectionist but when you do not clean a dirt the moment you see it, it begins to invite more and more dirts, ie your habits, your negative thinking,imaginations, relationships etc.. This happens repeatedly in different scenarios, at different locations, with different faces, different environments and until you see the pattern, you cannot solve it..

This is when people start to question themselves. “Why is this happening to me ???Why me ? etc.. The answer is .. You’re looking for a way out of a problem ( the hall), without realizing that for a problem to come in, a door or maybe a window in the hall was opened. Yes !! There are doors and windows which we call portals .. for instance, my website http://www.barisity.com is a portal for healing, coaching and channeling.. same as your mind. THE TEMPLE” .. When one opens a door it means something is leaving and another is entering. Something has to go for something to come in.. it’s a door !! One door but leads you out or welcomes you in!! ( an exchange of energy, i.e energy never dies just transforms from one form to another.. ever heard of that ??) Check yourselves.. The conversations you share, the people around you , the shows you watch, the music you listen to, the habits you’re used to, the words that come out or your mouth, what are you subscribed to? ,what are you letting into your temple ? What are you open to ? Consciously and subconsciously ?!

For example, I opened a door for a way in ( it means I opened a portal ) It also means, I am ready for a way out ( ie let go of something) .. Same as your body being a temple, when you let someone get into your body, you’re exchanging energy and giving the person some part of you whether you believe it or not ( this could be + -) depending on your vibration.. Every person is karma and an experience replaying itself !!!

Learn to cleanse, guard and nurture your temple .. we all have temples in 3 layers ( spirit, soul and body ). We have been lied to for generations as to what the church really is .. ie temple , the disciples etc.. I would be writing about them in subsequent posts.. but remember, YOUR MIND is your number one asset and your mind is your first temple which has doors and windows and you experience them through your daily activities, people, places, books, websites, apps and so many other ways.. Connect with your true self and you would know which portals are opened that shouldn’t be and of course those that are closed that shouldn’t be. Simply put.. Be in charge of your temple!! do not let a human being like YOU tell you how to live your life! It is yours!!!

With love …
