So you think you own something, such as a gold watch. You wear it proudly and use it every day. One day it disappears, you have no idea what happened to it. Did you really own it? Do you still own it? As the definition reads from yesterday’s blog you did own it, but now you do not. Possession is 9/10th of the law, or so it would seem. I would say that it is 100% the law of ownership.
Say you met with a friend and notice they are wearing the watch you once owned. Whose watch is it? Does it matter that your friend found the watch in the company bathroom? Do you automatically assume they stole the watch from you? I hope not. If you still wish to enjoy the watch, you could explain what happened and ask them politely to give the watch to you. Since they are in possession of the watch, they own it. If you are compassionate and caring you may get the watch back. It is like the watch is making the decisions and choosing the person to be with. And in a way this is exactly what is happening. Remember like energy attracts like energy and if you are resonating a match to the watch it will come back into your life. I once lost and found a ring over three times before it decided I did not want it. I never found the ring again. It is not about owning certain objects; it is about enjoying the use of them and then gratefully passing them along when you are done with them.
I used to have a camera that I was getting tired of and wished to get a better one, but I would not spend the money. A few days later someone stole my camera and my prayers were answered! I now had the excuse I needed to go buy a new camera and I did. I owned the camera while it was in my possession and then I did not. The important point here is that I always have what I need. The resources present themselves as the need arises!
It is also important to know that ownership as most people understand it today is an illusion. You do not own the land, your car, or anything really. But you do have the use of anything you desire to claim in a way that honors the Best Interests of all concerned.
Right now this means paying for certain items so that you have permission to use them. Of course you are not paying for the item, but the honor of using it! If someone gives you a gift card, they are transferring their honor to you, thus making it a gift!
Ownership then is really a Spiritual Agreement made energetically between two individuals or Great Spirit herself. Whether energy is exchanged in the form of money, labor, barter, or Love does not matter. The water you drink, the land you walk on and the trees you sleep under were given to you as a gift from Great Spirit. Are you using them with honor?
Ask not – what do I own, but do I have what I need? I bet the answer is Yes, because Great Spirit is a wonderful provider (as long as you allow it).
The etiquette of ownership is another topic so please do not assume from this blog that I condone taking anything without asking first! Get permission, either verbally, in writing, or by (sales) contract. Even in a cashless society, the rules of etiquette still apply. Stay tuned! Ownership concludes in the next blog.
