Embracing the Flow: Becoming a Channel for Universal Wisdom

Cecily Elmas


In the vast tapestry of existence, there exists a profound interconnectedness that transcends the boundaries of individuality. When we pose questions to the universe and receive answers, it’s not a testament to our personal prowess or ego, but rather a realization that we are conduits for something greater than ourselves. In this exploration, we’ll delve into the concept of being channels for universal wisdom, understanding that our role is not to claim ownership but to honor the source that flows through us.

The Illusion of “I”:

In the pursuit of knowledge and understanding, it’s crucial to shed the illusion of a separate and isolated self. The ego, with its tendency to claim credit and say, “Look what I did,” has no place in this cosmic dance. Instead, the emphasis shifts from individual achievement to recognizing that the wisdom we receive is part of a timeless flow that precedes and transcends us.

Acknowledging Ancestral Knowledge:

Just as a river draws from numerous tributaries, our wisdom is not a solitary creation but a culmination of teachings passed down through generations. Our mentors and guides don’t possess knowledge as personal property; rather, they are stewards of an ancestral lineage. Each teacher is a link in an unbroken chain, and in acknowledging this, we come to appreciate the wisdom that has flowed through countless souls before us.

The Infinite Chain of Teachers:

In the grand tapestry of existence, where did the chain of wisdom begin? The beauty lies in the recognition that there’s an eternal source, an infinite chain of teachers stretching back through time. Each seeker is both a student and a teacher, perpetuating the cycle of learning and sharing.

The Power of Asking:

At the heart of this journey is the art of asking powerful questions. By tapping into our innate curiosity and seeking understanding, we open ourselves to the vast reservoir of universal wisdom. The questions act as a bridge, connecting us to the answers that flow through the channels of existence.

Receiving and Serving:

The true essence of being a channel lies in the act of receiving and serving. As the universe responds to our inquiries, it is our responsibility to share the insights with compassion and humility. By serving others well, we become active participants in the cosmic exchange, contributing to the collective evolution of consciousness.

Gratitude as a Guiding Light:

In this dance with the universe, gratitude becomes our guiding light. We express gratitude not only for the wisdom received but also for the teachers who have paved the way. Through gratitude, we anchor ourselves in humility and acknowledge the interconnectedness that binds us all.

Staying Connected to the Source:

To remain in harmony with the cosmic flow, it’s imperative to stay connected to the source. This involves cultivating a sense of awareness, mindfulness, and an open heart. By doing so, we become attuned to the subtle currents of wisdom that constantly surround us.

In the journey of becoming channels for universal wisdom, we transcend the limitations of the ego and embrace our role as conduits in the grand symphony of existence. By asking powerful questions, receiving with humility, and serving with compassion, we contribute to a legacy that extends beyond our individual selves. In this dance of cosmic connection, let us honour the teachers, express gratitude, and stay connected to the eternal source that unites us all.

May this land with you softly and profoundly.
