Thank you all for your very interesting answers. It's very heartening to hear from those who have gone beyond the accepted limitations of any and all of the religious/spiritual teachings - each, ultimately, forming a pick-and-mix of new "ways of serving the Higher Source", and so immediately harnessing humans and their INHERENT POWERS into being "fed" to some idea/deity outside of themselves.... as ever!
I have never personally gone for the notion that my "God" made me as some kind of servant to one facet of deity, idea, theory or human system or another; but that "it" put into me an ability to Do and Be that couldn't be stopped - unless I agreed it should be.
If I agreed that a disability should stop me, so then it would. If I agreed that I could be possessed or have an entity attached, then so it is allowed. If I agreed that what I wanted to do or be in life could be blocked by a lack of certain pieces of paper or metals, then that is the case.
But my "God", alive and aware and incredibly capable, vibrating in every single cell and sub-atomic particle of my Being, really didn't understand why I was choosing to set down my inherent powers and abilities
and would remind me now and again that I had another choice/s by bubbling through me once more the things I loved and the choice/s I would make if only I BELIEVED that I had those choice/s.
It has never been my thinking that if I don't "serve Light" then I must be "serving dark". I have always believed that the "God/Source/Call It What You Like" lived in, through, of, above, below and all around us and that if there are 54 billion people, then there are 54 billion routes to this "God/Source/Etc. Each one as valid as any other.
We see the divisions and hatreds organised religions have caused throughout time; but we seem to have missed the same occurring in supposed "New Age" spiritualities. It's only on looking with unafraid, wide open eyes that we see these new lines are as rigid, demanding, divisive, limiting and demoralising as any other religion.
NOW we not only have to worship and adore "God/Source/Etc".... we also have to worship angels, saints, guardians, guides, Masters, Ascended Masters, pixies, fairies.... the list goes on. And all honours must be done "properly" or it's to no avail - done devoutly, often enough, in the right time or phase, place or setting; wearing the right clothes and using the right tone of voice. Just like the old religious services, then! Nothing's changed except the name, clothes and words said.
And all designed to keep us praying OUTWARD, on our knees, begging, asking, pleading even. And that true force vibrating in every sub-atomic particle of our body telling us, "Here. In you. Of you! Use it".
But to say, "I AM THAT
"....... oooo, skeery! S/he thinks s/he is GOD - duh, duh, durrrrrr. Dismissed. Jeered. Argued against on every point and syllable. Just like Jesus in his day - and what has changed there even: if a Christ came back today and gave us the messages again, most people would still turn from him and say, "The damned cheek of the bloke. He oughtn't to be allowed!".
But I have never believed that "God/Source/Etc" is my butler, there to do everything for me. And why would I want to mewl to a guardian/guide or plead for help from an angel? If I am going to seek advice or help it might as well be from the organ grinder and not the monkey!
These friends I wrote of (and they are real friends, not ME
) are finding re-empowerment and a new take on life that is liberating, reinvigorating and of more use to others anyway. It doesn't mean that they are "evil" or greedy or selfish - they were perhaps more of harm when they went around doing stuff for others (and so keeping them in need of given help) instead of trying to get those others to see that everything they could ever need or want was WITHIN them; and it is okay to go after it. There is plenty for all, with more to come; let's EACH and ALL go happily for it.
The lies of most religious/spiritual teaching is that there is scarcity
so that if you want "plenty" you must be denying others their share. Nonsense! Scarcity is created by politicians and their ilk to keep people rivalling one another and snatching for themselves. You notice that politicians, church leaders and spiritual teachers never limit themselves? Because they know scarcity is a lie - it simply suits them and their greed to have you believe it's true. And lots of other states of being too, far too many to go through in this post. May I suggest you read some of the REAL New Thought writers (not the New AGE writers such as Deepak Chopra and his flap-doodle, or Louise L Hay and her damning judgementality) but, for a good example, Neville Goddard and his very interesting translations of the bible, such as "Your Faith Is Your Fortune".
He is not advocating material greed - although neither does he damn that as long as you are not taking from others or using others to gain for yourself.

Hi, Incarnated. It really isn't for me to come in even pretending to claim I can answer your question. I can for myself, but that isn't going to fit you. This is when the "God/Source" of and in you is going to have all the answers and more.
Try some of Neville Goddard, or William Walker Atkinson - if I can find a link to their teachings that cost nothing, I'll be back to add them in. There are some on:
But I'll fish around for others.
Many thanks to all for answering.
ETA: @ Incarnated - as promised (and please don't read it as "something about Christianity or just The Bible"! It goes way beyond either and is a very good starting point
for your own route to "it":
