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.

“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)]

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. The spirit seeks security to alleviate the pain of the unsettlement it constantly feels because it knows that it has separated from that part of us – the Soul – that is the place of true settlement.

  2. The security of wealth and success has already been proven to be false for no matter how much money we have, or how much success or goods we accumulate we are never immune to the consequences of our own choices on our body and life and without the connection to the love we are within we will always be hurting. This is the same for every human being no matter what kind of life you have carved for yourself.

  3. “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.’” yes indeed, so amazing whenever I ponder that we came into this life with everything we needed. Once we tip into adulthood at 18 then we can drink, smoke, watch x rated movies and generally abuse and numb ourselves. Why on earth is that?

    1. It is crazy when you stop to reflect on the fact that we are born with everything we will need inside us, like an inner compass, yet we humans cut off from our inner knowing and as a result we lose our way in life. However, in any day, in any moment, when we get honest with how much in life is false and does not work, when we get honest with the constant tension we feel and exhaustion, only in this break, this reflection and honest space are we able to choose differently and begin walking the path back to Soul.

  4. Its interesting how we define security in so many different ways but when we break them down with a deeper understanding of the subject, its clear to see that none of them are truly secure.

  5. ‘True wealth is knowing who we are and living that’. There is a simplicity and depth to this that is very profound and inspiring; taking great care of our relationship with ourselves as the foundation of all others and our interaction with life.

  6. For many only the moment when death is felt coming close, the importance of personal relationships is understood, but too that all the material ‘wealth’ that is gathered has no value when we come to this point in life.

  7. We are as great as we are in any moment in any cycle of life, the discarnate life in-between death and re-birth included.

  8. The only true security is that which is held within us, as it cannot be taken away, and goes with us when we pass over, material wealth and security on the other hand can disappear in a moment due to worldly circumstances and becomes worthless when we leave this plane of life.

  9. Security as we know it is really a form of control, whereas if we are truly secure in the knowing of who we are, we are free to be ourselves.

    1. There is a lie in life and that is that we are told that you have to be in control of your life, for instance that you have to plan ahead from young of what you want to become in adult life. And in that the truth of that you are already everything that you are, that you are as wise and knowledgeable as for instance your parents is not told.

  10. Security is not true wealth but it is quite possible to have true wealth – the richness of your heart – and security. They are complementary and at times it is helpful to have both.

  11. Who we truly are needs to be appreciated- along with the fact that our greatness is simply what we allow through us – it is not for us – it is for others to receive and feel and to explore their own greatness.

  12. I often love these moments, when you realise how less you actually materially need to be happy. It is great to have a standard of support material wise, but you should never need it to feel content and full.

  13. “And perhaps the only security to be sought after, to be pursued is to learn to love.” Expressing the love that you are is the best way to surrender in your body, which then gives you the access to a much bigger love. A love that is there for everyone equally.

  14. Security, success and wealth are all external to the fact of the wealth of our Soul. Yes we need to be practical and work to have a good standard of living, but without our connection to our Soul it is worthless, like sawdust in the mouth.

  15. Interesting to consider that as babies and children we are at our most ‘insecure’ in terms of finances and control over our lives and reliance on others and yet I would say we are at our most open, tender, relaxed and loving during these years. So an interesting observation that as we so called ‘grow up’ and become more secure and in control, we seem to get hardened, tense and less open and tender with each other.

  16. I work in a consumer industry and live in a place where materialism is king. I have to constantly get rid of many things to feel myself again. Throughout the years the purge can be extreme, but in the end it’s well worth it to start feeling myself again. Now it is impossible to live otherwise.

  17. ‘potential regrets’ may be the reason for excessively keeping us busy and filling us with something to avoid feeling what we are actually missing and avoiding, basically we keep running from the regret and coming to a stop would be quite a challenge, exposing the lies we created, the ignorance we have maintained. A stop moment to feel and realize the possible or potential regret can be a healthy wake-up moment, initiating the activation of what is missing NOW before it becomes the future we meet at the end of the current life.

  18. The truth lies in the willingness to appreciate that we are all searching for the security on the outside when the true settlement arises when we know we are connected with our soul.

  19. Thanks Jacqueline, yes… The crunch time is always when we pass over, and if the blinkers of humanity were lifted, and if the ongoing cycle was recognised, we would not fall for the trap and the illusion of security.

  20. ‘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.’ How true is this, we know this because the moment we tidy, clean and order a space it feels so much better and more spacious from within our bodies.

  21. The deep gratitude for Serge Benhayon felt here is very beautiful and true as we as humanity are being shown the true wealth with us all to be lived and shared and has nothing to do with material possessions and things but living the quality of love and essence we are as multidimensional beings and nothing less.This is our true wealth.

  22. I appreciate more and more that the key to true wealth and success is through the depth of love we allow ourselves to surrender to in our body and our commitment to cherishing and valuing our relationship with ourselves and expressing from our inner heart naturally expands to equally hold and value others in the same way.

    1. Beautiful Linda, I read your comment several times. It is very true when we let go of the fight with life and/or the hardness and protection we are able to surrender, and when we surrender we gain access to the wealth and richness of love, wisdom and grace.

  23. “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,’…” – I could feel so strongly from these words how the majority of our issues when we are faced with the dying process or the potential of dying while dealing with a serious illness or disease revolve around us knowing that we held back from really expressing everything that we truly are throughout our life, and the regret of this can be crushing.

    1. I can also feel how crushing this must be, to get to the end of your life and have huge regret of holding back from expressing all that we are…. however, with the science of reincarnation, we get another chance to come back again and again to choose differently.

    2. Michael that is so true, it’s worth now taking stock and seeing, asking ourselves are we truly expressing everything we feel there is to be expressed without holding back?

  24. It would be interesting to see how kids would behave in accumulating material items/toys etc if we as a society did not model this. If we adults lived valuing our inner quality and connection would kids naturally do this? We also currently model that material things are the way to be loved and valued eg. Birthday presents, treats when we are ‘good’.

    1. It’s interesting isn’t it because children so often love the box that the gift came in and not the gift itself. I remember so well my cardboard rowing boat that I made with plastic salad servers as oars. The other game I really remember was having toy cars in a puddle formed by an upside down dingy and yet we feel we need to buy children endless toys to make sure they are ‘happy’ whilst missing the one thing they are wanting most, which is true connection.

      1. So true Fiona, I remember one Christmas, after all the pressies were opened, my son and daughter were playing and having fun with the big empty box…. I still have the picture I took! Children have great imaginations, and curiousity about the world around them, and don’t need endless toys, what they most want, as we all did as children is to be met and accepted for who they truly are.

      2. I know exactly what you mean Fiona- I often joke, when I unwrap a gift. When I felt it was made with love I often say: “Ok, that is enough already”. Which in fact is actually no joke.

  25. The body seeks security to a certain extent to not get hurt or killed thus the need to take care of our body, but the incessant need for security as described in this blog has its roots in the ‘Spirit – everything we are not (ideals, beliefs, hurts, protection, emotions, restricts space)’ that seeks to maintain its existence and individuality in separation to who we truly are – ‘Soul – the fiery impulses of our Soul (love and brotherhood, all being equal – spacious)’.

  26. What we consider security in the end always turns out to be a cementing of our identification with creation and therefore contributes to the separation from our original divine state. That´s part of the setup creation perpetuates to keep itself going. In that sense, security is a ‘dangerous’ thing, not when required to protect oneself from physical harm/violence, but when it comes to restoring who we are and establishing a life that is based on love and truth.

    1. Well said Alexander and a great summary of the blog. When we start to become more aware and understand life first from energy and the difference between spirit and Soul, we start to see through the illusion and how much we humans have been set-up.
