Cooperation helps people achieve more than they could do on their own, together we are stronger than we are apart, you may have heard that statement before and it is factual to a degree. What our concern is in this lesson is to point out that we must be ready to cooperate with the source that creates all things. Cooperation is what we can expect from the Creator, we can expect his love, His mercy, His peace, judgement, justice and most of all security. We therefore, have to get ourselves prepared to accept, and also be prepared to deliver the things we are getting from the source of all things. So we have to start creating the right attitude, and emotion that will open up this channel to receive and to give, by building the correct habit that will be permanent for long term usage by the Host of all things. Preparing a mind set to grind and to labor for all that comes through the channel we created.
It is the condition of being at a platform or structure of life, growth in spirituality that is required, or development in mentality that too should be present, these achievements will show that state of competence that have being gain. Now, we are presenting ourselves to be ready to set a side personal agenda, motive, having the requirements so that God can use us as a channel of sanctification to someone else. The premise of somehow preparing ourselves for the movement of Spirit to pass through us in what defines the policy of cooperation. Exclusively, we have an enormous impact upon our present state of affairs and our surrounding when we interact with one another without a spirit of cooperation, we actually create disharmony in our lives and in our world. In fact, a non- cooperative attitude with just one other person disturbs the entire planet-causing disturbance to many, and also other actions in the universe are disrupted. Granting at first this might be difficult to grasp, as a contrast we can look at the human body when any one part of the physical structure is ill, or fragmented, or ailing, it actually affects the working of the whole.
In the same fashion, it is the writer of 1 Corinthians that said “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honorable, upon these we bestow more abundant honor; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular each of us is an essential part of the whole world and our thoughts, feelings, and activities have an impact upon all others.” It is therefore a fact that all of us are to be in harmony with each other not because we are human more so because we are also spirit and connected to the one intellectual mind of the universe. On the other hand, we must show some type of cooperative spirit one to another that becomes our heavenly duty to fulfill.
We are accountable to ourselves as well as for what we deposit to the totality of all things in which we encounter, as we prepare ourselves as a manifold to those that are on our journey. Every thought that passes through our minds, every aspiration that illuminate our soul, every act that we post must be able to influence another even some one that you are not in contact with on the other side of the planet. By collaboration, we become aware of this interrelatedness with one another, True cooperation is not the advantage of self, but rather for the advancement of the whole. The web of all things in the universe is within each and every one of us, as we open our minds, and hearts, and soul to becoming a channel of blessings, and harmony and become more cooperative with the universe, we obviously have to adjust ourselves to this inner arrangement of fullness that can create a grand body where all the members work in absolute fulfillment and in Christ mindedness.
Therefore, it does not matter what type of assistance we seek, physical, mental or spiritual, working toward achievement is necessary on our part to bring it to fruition. We must make an effort to be unified in our doings, we must begin to realize that another’s obligation is at least as significant as our own. Cooperation is the proposing of self to be a channel of activity as well as of thought. In our day-to-day lives we can take stock of our thoughts and our acts and begin to see whether our life is in association with the soul’s desire for cooperation. As we position our life into action, all that we know of cooperation must become a reality completely, by our thoughts and our conduct, by just being generous in a way that no one knows we can be, by just simple performance of longsuffering, by fair humbleness, there will come to us an inner peace.
Ultimately we will gain the realization that true cooperation is simple being a channel of God’s approvals here on earth. All of mankind must take notice of self, their every thought, and activity as they attempt to make themselves a channel of cooperation with the Creator. It is important to act as though you are ready to assist all in your life and allow God’s to produce that material thing you will need. Cooperation is, off course on of the principles that every man woman and child should have in their collection of life, along with the pictures that can show what they are thinking and doing for a new generation to emulate. Be confident with your acts of cooperation knowing that God is your team leader, yet in principle the life of God and the life of man are identically the same, and so are one.
