Security – Is This True Wealth and Success?

Although we have an innocence and awareness as children when we are born, very rarely do we pass over the same way we came in, as we can end up loaded with beliefs and ideals, issues, hurts, regrets and protection – everything we are not.

In a lifetime we can accumulate so much stuff in the way of material possessions: fancy cars, fancy clothes, accessories, houses, holiday homes, all the thousands of items we purchase to fill our homes and living spaces with – all potentially delaying our true evolution as we develop an appetite to accumulate and own.

Life passes and death approaches – and one may question: what have I done with my life? We rarely talk about death, but why wait till death approaches to have potential regrets?

What if we ask ourselves the questions now? What would be revealed? What needs letting go of? What needs changing? What relationships need attention and healing, and or ending? Where are we not committing? Where are we cruising and or indulging in comforts and in ignorance of a false sense of security, and at the same time resisting the expansion on offer?

Have we defined what security truly means for us? And if we have not, are we building security through material wealth and possessions at the expense and disregard of not connecting with the security of knowing who we are, and the wealth of energetic awareness and energetic truth that we all equally have access to?

The word ‘security’ has been bastardised so much that we humans have fallen into the trap of the temporal world of accumulating and owning, clogging up our living spaces with unnecessary stuff and baggage, clogging up our bodies with all we are not.

Clogging up free flowing space is a great way to stay contracted and not feel how much we miss ourselves, how much we miss the connection to our living stillness and the amazingness that we are.

True wealth is knowing who we are and living that – living life as we did as children when we were very clear, aware, clairsentient, reading life, reading energy, connected to and impulsed from our Soul, never being fooled by the exterior environment or by ‘nice words.’

True wealth is having the awareness that life is so much more than the physical and what we see with our eyes… we are energetic beings, thus our bodies are vehicles in which energy passes through all the time – either the energy of spirit or the energy of Soul, with both producing very different results:

Spirit – everything we are not (ideals, beliefs, hurts, protection, emotions, restricts space).

Soul – the fiery impulses of our Soul (love and brotherhood, all being equal – spacious).

Perhaps the true meaning of success is a simple matter of preparing and presenting a physical vehicle (the body) that is aligned to, and can hold the fiery energy of our Soul. In this alignment we can serve each other in our evolution in accordance with the universal and divine plan of where we are going next.

Living who we truly are is how we defeat the temporal illusionary falseness of security and the distractions of human life. And perhaps the only security to be sought after, to be pursued is to learn to love… starting with self. In the abundance of energetic fiery love we have everything we need, with success and wealth in the temporal, a byproduct which we are not attached to or invested in.

How we live will define the quality in which we pass over, thus when death approaches we will be ready, instead of feeling regret over what we have accumulated as ‘security,’ being prepared to leave an imprint of evolution for others and for ourselves to come back to – perhaps this is the true meaning of responsibility and the true meaning of success.

In deep gratitude to Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine for presenting The Ageless Wisdom which is an amazing support to return to living simply and living true to who we are, and as we do we can once again reclaim our energetic awareness and the energetic truth.

  1. There are so many lies along with greed and corruption been shown up in so many ways now all we have to do is consider the energy that is behind these hideous ways of living and start to reconnect back to our essences as you have shared Jacqueline.

  2. When we can at last see through the lies we are constantly fed then we can return again to knowing who we are and living from that understanding. One day we will all be living the truth of who we truly are.

  3. ❤️ So much of life before the presentations by Serge Benhayon was about having a feeling of security in our relationships, work and roof over our head etc. rather than being impulsed from the light of our Soul, so life becomes as you have shared Jacqueline, that being Soul-full is ‘the true meaning of responsibility and the true meaning of success.’ Then our life is secure in who we all innately are.

  4. I can honestly say that I am able to feel the effects of this as an adult
    ” Although we have an innocence and awareness as children when we are born, very rarely do we pass over the same way we came in, as we can end up loaded with beliefs and ideals, issues, hurts, regrets and protection – everything we are not.”
    I am at a stage in my life where I am starting to unpack right and wrong, good and bad, justification, reaction, projecting how I want something to be rather than just letting life be. I’m not alone as humanity is wrapped up in this suffocating consciousness, so that we cannot truly breathe the breath of God and by breathing the breath of God feel the magnificence of who we truly are.

  5. Could it be that being fully prepared for so called death opens the door to heaven and our birth back to who we Truly are, so we can re-incarnate to the full glory and magnificence as a Soul-full being?

  6. This is so simple, true and sad at the same time. That we are not supported or encouraged to develop our grandness because humanity is so down trodden it does not want to be exposed in the many lies we live not being the absolute grandness we are. We have a tendency to crush anyone that exposes the lies we have all created.

      1. What I’m also feeling Greg is the imposition of energy from other that do not want any reflection of the grand- full-ness we are talking about because it shows them/us as not living the grand-full-ness they know they are too.
        The Games that the Astral energy plays with us and now they are being exposed for the falsity they are. To say no to that energy is the best medicine there is.

  7. Being secure in the Truth that we will all come back, is it not great to live with the understanding of the True energetic meaning of words, and thus, the Truth about passing-over, before we cast any stones towards those who choose to live an evolutionary life.

  8. Security comes at us in many ways and has a huge impact for us all, as so much can be looked into as feeling secure is a guise for disconnection, so lets say even the way we eat or the energy we walk to the refrigerator in / what are we thinking about when we walk to the fridge? Are we present with our walk as we approach the fridge, secure in the truth of when we get there we will understand what we need to get and thus connected to our essence?

    1. gregbarnes888, are you suggesting that there is another form of security that we have fallen for which is the comfort of staying exactly where we are, as there is a part of us that remembers what happened the last time we tried to break free of the consciousness that binds us. The experience left its mark, that to try again will bring the same consequences, so we live a reduced life one that is under the radar so to say, this also is security.

      1. Agreed Mary, even when we nominate and think it is gone something else will secure a position in replacement to whatever we have let go of. So when when we break free of a consciousness maybe we can replace it with a Loving purpose or stay reconnected to our essences 😇.

  9. “True wealth is knowing who we are and living that” This is the kind of statement we want to be growing up around.

  10. I actually like to talk about death, not in a morbid way but in the preparation side of things as a loving act for those I will leave behind to sort out all my loose ends. If those ends are organised it makes their job easier.

  11. When we are lying on our bed, taking our last breath, it will not be security that we crave for, it will be the connection with God that we may have exchanged in way of comfort and security that we truly want and truly need.

    1. On our passing it shall be how we have lived for the last 10 years that will hold us in our next incarnation, and as a Student of life Joy will be a part of who we come back as.

    2. This is so true, we miss our connection to God but we do not own up to this fact even at our dying breath as we realize yet again we are bereft to the one thing we crave life after life. From my personal experience we pride ourselves as being human, but we have missed the fact that we are human- beings and our beingness is our connection to God we have put far too much emphasis on the human shell that encases our being we ignore our greatest asset our connection to God.

  12. Could it be jealousy and comparison that we accumulate, “material possessions: fancy cars, fancy clothes, accessories, houses, holiday homes, all the thousands of items we purchase to fill our homes and living spaces with” and thus we will have lifetimes of searching down that street as it holds no Truth.
    Or could we say being possessed (by our possessions!) can keep us from the truth and thus do not duly consider our possessions as something that may be of service to our Souls and thus God? Do we have to consider that they can come from a spirit who likes to possess (control) and thus not coming from our True being-ness or Soul?

    1. Greg do we buy all the material wealth as a compensation for the lack of true wealth in our heart which is our connection to God and the Universe? We have so much light pollution that we cannot see the stars but they are still there and influence our everyday. We are encouraged to think we are cut off from God and the Universe but this is another lie and trap we have fallen for and accumulate the false wealth rather than the true wealth we carry in our inner heart.

      1. Absoulutely Mary, no thinking, but aligning to the Stars, as the constellations are always poring through us, and thus the magnificence we all are is there for the taking by the use of our will.

  13. Gosh a lot is said here isn’t it ..

    “You are already great,

    you just haven’t allowed your greatness out

    simply because you learnt as a child

    that it was not so comfortable for others.”
    [Serge Benhayon (1)]

    How many of us in the world would find it really easy to genuinely know and be able to say/claim that we are great? Yet I feel many of us at some point in our life have been in tune with and can feel this greatness within. This is something we should definitely workshop, talk about and discuss more I feel.

    1. Agree Vicky, we can share so much and definitely workshop the greatness we all are, as we do not fully appreciate this fact. Appreciation of who we are in our full glory and our essence and also feeling this in others, sets a platform from which we understand True-intimacy. As appreciation and intimacy go hand in hand – with intimacy being to simply let people in, and appreciation bringing the authority and confirmation of the glory of who we are – we have True purpose in life, with the deep-humble-appreciate-ive-ness being the glue or flow in life that hold us between our great moments.

      1. There are many times when we are talking to other people we can feel their greatness and they allow us to feel that greatness within ourselves too. This shows me that there are no differences at the core of our being; we all have the capacity to be glorious. There are also people who cannot feel their greatness. It’s as though they are under a great black cloud which if we are not fully aware of can like a mist, descend on us too and we become infected with the blackness they are feeling. That’s when we need to stand firm in our grandness so that the other person has an opportunity to feel the greatness in themselves, to me that is a true blessing that we can bestow on each other. To remind ourselves and each other of the grandness we all come from.

  14. I feel this alone should be studied! ‘Although we have an innocence and awareness as children when we are born, very rarely do we pass over the same way we came in, as we can end up loaded with beliefs and ideals, issues, hurts, regrets and protection – everything we are not.’ In how we come into the world so precious and complete yet more often when we pass over we are the complete opposite. This alone tells us how we are living and what we are doing is just not it and not working.

    1. How much do we really appreciate that gorgeous spontaneous, in the moment, playful and sweet expression of children, and if we were really honest, how much do we want to suppress it given that we have suppressed our own innate expression and struggle with the choice to do so that our children reflect so clearly back to us?

      1. I would say it is very rare for us to fully appreciate the gorgeousness and playfulness of children, we just have to look around us to see that this gets squashed at a very early age. We don’t seem to be able to cope with anyone child or adult that reflects back to us God’s love and understanding. We want to tear them down rather than stopping to consider that we are living in the house of lies.

  15. Recently shown what happens when we lack inner security. Multi-million pound custom built super luxury cars parked in a street close to me, one trimmed in 22 carat gold. Some people reacted, offended by the blatant display of material wealth, others attracted to it, photographed the cars. It was clear why it was constellated for me to walk by the very day these cars were on display. With no reaction for or against, I simply reflected on my own inner security and true wealth of walking with God.

    1. This is a great reflection on how much we are swayed by money and power They seem to be the two pillars of having an untouchable life in this life. But have we stopped to consider what happens in the ‘afterlife’ as the Greeks portrayed it. Many people seem to think that once you’re dead that’s it, but just supposing that is not it, then what? How many of us walk with the true wealth of walking with God, knowing that when we pass over it will be the gold that we carry in our hearts which is the connection to God that is needed not gold trimmings on a car.

  16. “True wealth is knowing who we are and living that ” and this is something no one can take away from us but is for each of us to deepen our awareness of.

  17. Thank you Jacqueline, this is a very powerful piece of writing. It challenges us to wake up in a sense, to step off the conveyor belt of life and truly assess our foundations and where we are going, and what we invest in, our inner soulful world or the outer world? One way of life is empty no matter how much material wealth you accumulate, the other soulful one contains the riches of God and the Universe, and the fullness of the self as part of that grandness.

  18. From young we are sold the belief that security is all that matters in life and this is what we try to achieve at the cost of everything else. And so many of us end our lives in disillusion and disappointment. We get to realise the big house, the fast car, the membership to the most sought after golf club / Tennis club isn’t it.

    1. This disappointment is a killer; because we have busted a gut we think we are owed and when it never materialises we feel short changed and in so doing feel justified in making loveless choices – and so we keep going on the wheel until such time we begin to break through the consciousness that has held us in its grip for so long, beginning with the exploration of connection, stillness, self nurture, brotherhood, letting go of hurts, ideals, beliefs, healing – moving into service and letting go of the identification with self – allowing ourselves to be held in a quality that words simply can’t describe.

  19. I have discovered for myself that it was not until I started to let go of all my misguided ideals and beliefs that I had absorbed as a child just how much I was actually missing out on myself, and how amazing I actually am. That what I was told as a child wasn’t true we are all born amazing, beautiful, delightful, and full of grace and it is this connection that gets crushed and so needs to be resurrected again.

    1. “To feel secure or confident in life is to know who we are and to live that in full” The simplicity of this is exquisite and powerful. What a difference it would make if more people were open to access to this truth.

  20. So many of us are ignorant of the pure gold that resides within us all. This is the source of so much misery in life.

      1. It is crazy Michelle, I remember when I first became aware of this – a huge realisation when finally, ‘I got it’
        And a great loss when this simple truth is not part of our lives once we leave childhood.

  21. There is so much we can learn from the innocence and awareness of children – they speak so much wisdom if we are open to hearing it.

    1. I agree with you Andrew children seem much more connected to a something that we lose as we grow up. I feel that as adults we have a responsibility to ensure that we do not squash or crush this knowing as it was crushed in us but to carefully nurture what seems at times to be ‘other worldly’ knowing.

  22. “True wealth is having the awareness that life is so much more than the physical ” I so agree. Material security can feel ‘good’ but at what expense? We can’t take that form of security with us when we pass over.

    1. Agreed. We can chase down wealth and security and at the end of the day find that it doesn’t bring what we are really looking for. All the comfort in the world cannot replace that inner knowing of who we are and what true purpose is.

    2. In some elder communities, residents live affluent, comfortable lives, and yet something is missing, That inner spark of divinity and joy that is the mark of true wealth is absent and instead people jog along in the main with a sense of emptiness and feeling of loss. This is what happens when we spend all our working lives dedicated to careers, achieving financial security and amassing material possessions at the expense of building a deep and loving inner security.

    3. Often, if you look in the eyes and bodies of people who are materially secure, it is anything but good. What we feel is emptiness. Observed also that people with few material comforts and live on the edge of society, can often have a vitality and rawness that is true. The irony is we’re schooled to believe the only ‘measure of success is to accumulate material possessions, assets and become comfortable. This is like a death knell and has nothing to do with true inner wealth.

      1. Kehinde2012 is it possible we are all empty inside, and this is why we accumulate material possessions to somehow make up for the lack we feel within? And as you say
        “This is like a death knell and has nothing to do with true inner wealth”,

  23. A great blog unpacking what security is and means to us and why we need it. Especially as you shared to look at when we come into this world we just are, we are also vulnerable, open and connected to the divine and when we leave are we hard, miserable surrounded by possessions? Mmmm its definitely going wrong somewhere!

    1. What is it about us as human-beings that we do not want to show our sensitivity, fragility and grace. Surely these are the greatest attributes to have. Is it possible that if we shared these qualities with each other there would be no reason to abuse because when we are connected to just those 3 qualities it would be impossible to abuse ourselves or anyone else.

  24. We can seriously ask what security we actually have in life? Just because you are married does not mean that you are in a ‘secure’ relationship as one in the couple could die in a car crash or from an illness or disease, or there could be a split up. Just because you have a permanent job does not mean you cannot be made redundant and have to look for another job. Just because you own a house does not mean that that house will be there – consider floods, fires, bankruptcy. The point being not to instill fear, but to realise that if we make our lives about security we are in fact investing in a form of control of our lives – by all means get married, get a job, get a house but realise that this is not what makes you who you are. Who you are is who you are and is not based on what you own or what you do. To value yourself as the being that then brings this to all you do is what makes the difference.

  25. The real question that we can ask ourselves is what have we invested in life and what do we continue to invest in that truly is there to support us? I feel for me true investments are about the quality of relationships that we have built and continue to build in life and this includes the relationship that we have and hold with ourselves.

    1. Henrietta I feel that for many of us we have not built a relationship with ourselves, as women especially we are taught to take care of others first. If we do not develop a relationship with ourselves first then there is a tendency to expect another to fill that void or need in ourselves. No one can do this for us, is it then possible that is why many relationships do not work out or become arrangements because of the expectation that the other person will fill the void which is the lack of investment in ourselves.

  26. We experience death everyday, things come, are lived and then they’re over. We move on to the next moment, task, day, relationship, life. We can feel secure in the knowledge that there is something precious and held within – our inner guiding light, strength and divinity. There is no better security than the connection we have with our inner-heart.

    1. Beautiful Kehinde. There is so much impermanence in life in the physical world. Connecting with our inner heart and the contentment that can bring cannot be taken away.

  27. ‘we can end up loaded with beliefs and ideals, issues, hurts, regrets and protection – everything we are not’ this is a heavy load, one I’m learning to discard back to my true self.

    1. Karin it’s not until we start to address the ideals, beliefs, issues, hurts, regrets and protection – everything we are not’ that we realise we have buried ourselves under a mountain of rubbish that does not belong to us and can take take a few years to discard. In the discarding we can feel ourselves coming back to the joy of who we are and it is the most glorious feeling to claim ourselves from the heavy clinging false life we have subjected ourselves to.
