Illness and Our Desire to Help
In these extremely difficult times it is wonderful to learn of so many people who are willing to offer whatever they can to help those in need. It is times like these where our true nature shows. The following are a few words from William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, about the value that our efforts can bring to our own spiritual growth.
The Council: Remember, any illness, regardless of what it is, is your opportunity to serve another individual, and in so doing you serve yourself, and this is good because in serving yourself in that manner you are showing yourself how godly you really can be. Taking care of those who are ill certainly isn't an easy job, but remember this, if there is anything of value, if there is anything real, it requires a great deal of work. Those things that you accomplish in this lifetime of a spiritual nature will not necessarily come easily all the time, but once you have acquired those you will never lose them. They become part of your spiritual wealth, a wealth that will never be taken away.
