Principle of Sharing

The Lord of the World, the "Ancient of Days," is releasing new energies into humanity,
transmuted in the present furnace of pain and fiery agony. This transmutation will
bring about a new power of sacrifice, of inclusive surrender, a clearer vision of
the Whole and a cooperative spirit hitherto unknown and which will be the
first expression of that great
principle of sharing, so sorely needed today.
- Alice A. Bailey, The Destiny of the Nations

Generosity is the heartfelt expression of sharing, especially with those less fortunate. 

The wisdom teachings proclaim, the Principle of Sharing is to prevail during the upcoming cycle of civilization. This will be the natural effect of humanity’s increased sharing in the hierarchical life.

Money, or concretized energy, has previously been largely concentrated in the hands of the few. But through the concerted efforts of the worldwide group of servers, money can be redirected along spiritual lines towards the fulfillment of greater human and planetary need.

Surely the flow of funds available for hierarchical purpose has increased tremendously with help from the internet and mass communications.

Crowdfunding, whereby internet sites like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe are used to elicit fundraising for all kinds and sizes of creative and entrepreneurial projects, has spread quickly ~ even as there have been cutbacks in many countries to government welfare programs and arts funding.

Whether used to assist people with hardship or to solicit funds for producing creative ideas, these websites give people a platform to effectively share their fundraising needs. Such campaigns can then become magnetic through the widespread social media as we saw this summer with the popular ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Microloans are another creative idea for getting resources to small business owners to pursue their dreams, support their families, and create jobs in their communities. These frequently low-income entrepreneurs form the backbone of worldwide economies. On average, a recipient receives $6000 to invest in their business. These tiny loans produce some big results ~ increased income, new jobs, and the faith that people can take charge of their lives.

An excellent example of the Principle of Sharing is 59-year old philanthropist Sam Simon, one of The Simpsons creators and an inspiration to all. In 2012 when Simon was diagnosed with terminal cancer, he decided during his final days to give away his fortune to charities, choosing to support animal rights, Save the Children and feeding the hungry. He joyfully says, “I get pleasure from it, I love it.”

It’s important to recognize that not only the wealthy are capable of enriching others’ lives through sharing. “We live in an abundant universe, and there's always plenty to share” is a valuable affirmation when dedicating efforts to help others, causes and organizations in need of support. 

Having identified oneself through penetration and polarisation with the Plan and with the Will of God (which is the key to Shamballa), we then proceed ~ as a result of this triple recognition ~ to do our share in materialising the Plan and in bringing through into outer manifestation and expression as much of that Plan as we can. We thus become first of all an outpost of the Hierarchy (which of necessity means sensitivity to the Shamballa energy), and then increasingly an Agent of Light ~ the Light universal, or the Light of the Monad.
                  - Alice A. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age II*

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.”** Whereas, to share with others is both human and divine.

And when the sharing is done with love and joy, this increases its effect exponentially.

As more and more of humanity becomes aligned with the spiritual Hierarchy, this produces right cosmic relations and generates ever greater sharing of resources.

 … the cycle now being inaugurated in the world is that of "Growth through Sharing," and advanced humanity can now share the work, the responsibility and the trained reticence of the Hierarchy, whilst paralleling this and simultaneously, the mass of men are learning the lessons of economic sharing; and, my brothers, in this lies the sole hope of the world.
