DIVINE BEINGS

To become an Ascended Master is the next step in Earth humans’ spiritual evolution.

Compiled by:  Nancy B. Detweiler – The Master speaking is listed at the beginning of his/her statements.

Maha Chohan – 1957

“A Sun Council was called when the Earth had reached its lowest ebb, when there seemed no possibility for it to contribute to the Light of the solar system.  At this Conference among the Suns of this galaxy, it was decided that the planet Earth would be returned to primal essence because it was contributing no Light, no music, no constructive radiation to the universe of which it was a part.  It was thought best to dissolve this planet, conserving life and returning the substance of the planet itself for re-polarization into the heart of Helios and Vesta.  As conservation of life is an essential part of the Cosmic Law.

Lord Sanat Kumara was One among other great and Divine Beings from other stars, Suns and universes Who attended the Council.  He went home to His planet determined in His heart to help the Earth.  He did not sit in His courtyard surrounded by the magnificent Beings, the Kumaras, the Angels, Devas and His own people, in proximity to His beloved Divine Complement, Venus and just think it was too bad to see the Earth and all that belonged to it being discarded.  Sanat Kumara, even One of the greatest of the mystics, had learned the Law of balance as well as Love and He pondered within Himself what He might do to sustain the Earth’s place in this system.  He asked for the opportunity to give to the Earth His radiation and Light and to act through His developed capacities of thought, feeling and action, as Lord of the World for the Earth.  This request was granted.

When He returned Home to His Star, Venus, He made the announcement of His offer and many of those who loved Him well offered to precede Him to Earth and prepare a suitable dwelling for Him.  Beloved Lady Venus made the great sacrifice when She felt the great affinity to His feeling world, His desire to come to Earth.  She made the sacrifice of representing Father and Mother for the planet Venus, to give Him freedom.  Also an activity that took life, energy and work is magnetizing the feminine and masculine aspects to keep an entire planetary evolution progressing for millions of years.

Then those who loved Sanat Kumara so well asked that they might come and create a city fitting for Him on this planet Earth.  They were accepted and were escorted into the upper atmosphere of Earth.  They abided within the realms of Light under the loving care and hospitality of the Lords of the Second Ray until such time as conditions could be prepared for their first embodiment.  They entered the actual gates of birth and were born on Earth a full 900 years before their Lord should come.”

Ascended Master Morya – 1952

“The greatest always being the servant of the lesser, their Cosmic Lord Himself, Sanat Kumara, and three of the Kumaras offered to lead the missionary Band.  The Kumaras, with thirty loyal volunteers, prepared for their descent into the atmosphere of the planet Earth knowing full well that They must remain until enough of the children of Earth had awakened to the need of the hour and of the Cosmic Fiat that the Earth must emit more Light.  These Earth children, then, must enter into the centuries of training, self control and discipline required to become Lords of their own heart Flame and through that Flame release the Kumaras from their service of Love and Light.

Those pupils of the Kumaras who volunteered to come and build a fitting place for Them, bade goodbye to their families, their homes, their planet and stood in the solemn Court of the Lords of Karma of Earth.  This great Council accepted in gratitude the entrance of these souls into the wheel of the Earth’s evolution.  Each was bound to the wheel of embodiment, Earth experience, and death for so long as the Earth should need their borrowed Light, and none might be released until the hour came when the Earth’s own Light was sufficient to pass the Cosmic Law’s demand.  Only then could these volunteer Beings be cut from this wheel and assume their rightful evolution upon their sweet planet of Love.  Has there ever been such a supreme sacrifice?  Not for one lifetime, one embodiment of suffering, one death, one birth, but for millions of rounds.

The first duties of these volunteers was to prepare a place for the coming of their Lord.  When each soul was bound round by the forgetful bands of Earth’s magnetism and entered into birth, only his burning love remained to light his way.  Yet each was enabled in those early days, before the wearisome journey had dulled the glow of the spiritual fire, to remember his purpose sufficiently to find his brother pilgrims and unite in the preparation of the Home for Sanat Kumara, as He was to remain in the atmosphere of Earth.  This great preparation, taking hundreds of years, is known as the Building of Shamballa.”

Lord Maha Chohan – 1957 & Ascended Master Morya – 1956

“The founding of Shamballa is the most marvelous activity of practical work, well done.  Day in and day out, life in and life out they held the vision of the beautiful city on Venus and they with their hands and workmanship coupled vision with action and created the beautiful White Island, so called because most of its Temples are white, particularly the great one of Sanat Kumara.  They used the most beautiful materials that the Earth could offer to duplicate the Shamballa on Venus.  This they did, although more than once their entire numbers were wiped out by the savage hordes (who were the laggards) that swept over them while engrossed at their work.  They built that beautiful carved bridge over the Gobi Sea of blue waters.  It was not still and sanded as it is today, but swiftly moving waters.  The bridge over which the pilgrims seeking more Light might pass into the sacred Precincts of the Temples.  (Remnants of this bridge may still be seen beneath the shifting sands of the Gobi Desert which, through cataclysmic action, was temporarily changed from blue water to desert land.)

They built among an Earth people who had sunk very low in consciousness and they had to breathe in the breath of all those in embodiment and take care that they did not also breathe in the contamination, because if they did it would have clouded over the vision of their City.  All over the world they wrought by the sweat of the brow and not in mystic chariot, the tremendous pieces of marble and the various other heavy stones that formed the mighty edifaces.  Some among them who were powerful in the use of magnetization helped them in the erecting of some of these great stones, tons in weight.  All along the way the vision was coupled by active work, until that day when the Lemurian Pole Star told, who were able to be cognizant of the event, that the Kumaras were coming.  Those who had come before were grateful indeed that they had completed through all those centuries a fitting Home for Sanat Kumara.”

Sanat Kumara – 1953

“I have left Venus before.  This is not the first planet which has worn the mantle of My Love.  I stood on other orbs, with other evolutions, and I was returned Home victorious in every case.  Sometimes one lifestream developing enough Light in his or her heart to pay My ransom.  Sometimes an entire evolution developing that radiation required to meet the Cosmic Law’s demand.  It is not numbers but quality that determines the radiation of Light required to sustain the place of an individual in its evolution, to sustain the place of a planet in a planetary scheme.

The Light of the world is but a quality of feeling that can be generated individually and sustained to a point where the aura, the inner bodies and the atmosphere radiate the pure Light from the Three-fold Flame which is within the heart.”

The Divine Self – as depicted by Elizabeth Clare Prophet

 Enlargement of Three-fold Heart Flame within each of us.

“It is not some metaphysical truth that is difficult to discern, some occult formula which can be evolved only by the ascetic.  It is such a simple self-evident Truth and code of life and conduct that the smallest child, the most orthodox consciousness abiding within it can become that Light, first within the small and narrow confines of the personal orbit and then on a larger scale.  Those qualities which bring comfort, peace, harmony and balance, those qualities which externalize beauty, tolerance and understanding emit Light through your feeling world and will eventually make even your physical garment self-luminous as they were when you received them first from the heart of your own Electronic Presence, and those feelings which generate happiness in the lives to those you contact make you a Light Bearer.  It is as simple as that.

You walk the ways of Earth and rub shoulders with mankind daily, particularly in big cities.  Every individual you pass by in your daily association is a potential Light Bearer.  When your spoken words, kindly smile, gracious gesture, when your radiation of feeling begets a radiation of happiness, of gratitude, of comfort, of peace in anyone of these, you have expanded Light in your own world and expanded the Light in that of your fellow man.  For that instant there has been an increase in the mass Light of the entire planet.  Walking down the street or in the stores, the power that is within a smile to light another’s face, that is adding to the Light of the world.  It is the homely things, the practice of the power and Love of God that transforms a mankind and an evolution from the selfish animal consciousness into the gracious Divine kings and queens of Light which you were once and you must become again.

You are entering into the glorious radiation of the Seventh Ray under the Master Saint Germain, Whose activity is known as Ordered Service, courtliness, kindliness, dignity, and beauty of hourly and daily living.

Light, from the heart of the Sun God to the smallest Elemental is built on the rhythm of the second, the minute and the hour, and the radiation which must come forth from those of you who have vowed within your hearts to love Me free is that Light which calls forth the dormant Light in others.

Shamballa means to make sacred.  It is the name of the City of the Sun in the heart of Venus which is My Home….  The final building of Shamballa [meaning the replica built for Earth], over 60,000 years ago, is recorded in occult literature.  That too, suffered decay.  But the akashic blazing powerful City lives and breathes in the ethers over the Gobi Desert and shall remain there until it is lowered again permanently, into the physical appearance world as the Golden Age proceeds and mankind individually and collectively prove themselves worthy to sustain it for all eternity.  It will be My gift to the evolution that I have loved which will remain a part of the Star of Freedom long after I have returned again to My Home, perhaps to go forth again to meet some further star, some more childlike evolution, some more innocent evolving life, for that is love and that is service, and that is joy.

We live but to love life free, and now you have come forth impersonally desirous of understanding the law of your own life, desirous of redeeming the energies of your own world, and desirous of providing the Light from within your own feelings and that of your fellow man, so that I may close My cycle and rise on the Love of your hearts into the glory of My Home, for that beloved, blessed children I thank you.  For your Love I am so eternally grateful, and for your desire to know how individually you may contribute to the Light of the world.  Mankind thinks spiritual opportunity lies on the mountain top, in the hermitage, in the cloister, in the monastery.  Yet, to radiate your own Light and to be cosmic torch bearers lighting the feelings of others, stirring the enthusiasm within your hearts, kindling the fires of faith and hope, awakening interest in brotherhood and selflessness and service, for that you must enter into the mass consciousness, for that We must have leaven, willing to raise the masses through proximity.  It is in the darkness that Light is needed.  It is in the shadows that the flaming Fire of one awakened soul is required.  I came to Earth because it required Light.  I continually seek to be of assistance to love free planets and evolutions.

Spiritual service has been cloaked with a oonsciousness of severity and duty, and it has built unconsciously tensions in the most earnest spirits who, feeling and sensing the responsibility of serving Light, neutralize the very activity which the Holy Spirit Itself through the heart would release, which is a happy, buoyant, joyous, controlled love, which brings a response from the Fire and Flame within the heart of those who seem yet so bound in shadow that they do not know how to generate that Light which is their freedom.

I am the Guardian of the Sacred Fire for the planet Earth.  That Fire is within your heart.  It takes a matter of seconds from the primal essence from the Central Sun Itself to pour down the Silver Cord into your own flesh body which sustains the life and intelligence within the form in which you sit before Me.

[See the Divine Self Chart above for the Silver Cord]

That life is the Sacred Fire of creation, which is the only power which I have used to create and sustain the Light which has poured out from the planet Earth into this universe and given any semblance of luminosity to your star.  The same Light, the same Sacred Fire, is within your physical hearts.  I have no particular gift within It and the Fire within you is enough to hold the balance for a city, for a nation, for a planet.  It is the same power that the Master Jesus used to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to perform every so-called miracle by which He redeemed the Light which was closed in with the shadows of limitation and distress.

The Sacred Fire is the redeemer of the Earth, but it would be best to say the Sacred Fire by which I have being is that Redeemer, and that same redemptive power is within you.  Prove it.

Shamballa opens its doors to the Brotherhood [Great White Brotherhood] once every year as the twelve month cycle draws to its close, and We play host to those great Beings Who have offered to guard and protect the evolving mankind on the Earth, and wherever possible teach them the way back Home.  For millions of years this activity was a private one, and none less than initiates or adepts or fully free Masters were among our guests, but through the widening of the interest in unascended beings, We are host to many thousands of lifestreams this year, many millions of good men and women stand in their etheric bodies in the atmosphere around Shamballa, accepting Our Light and radiation, though they cannot yet participate mentally, in an alert awakened consciousness in the actual ceremonies of the Flame or be fully aware of what is said in the addresses that are being given by the Brothers and Sisters Who are the Members of the Great Hierarchy and the Great White Brotherhood.

Be the Light of the world.  Eighteen years before my going, I place in your hands the Scepter of Dominion which I have brought from Shamballa, and which has remained the property of Lord Maitreya and Myself until this hour.  I ask that you use that Scepter individually, where there is sorrow, bring happiness; where there is limitation, bring feedom; where there is death bring life—for this were you born, for this came you into the world, and for this day has life sustained you for millions of years.”

Lord Maha Chohan – 1957 & Ascended Master Morya – 1956

“When all was prepared, Sanat Kumara bade His beloved Venus farewell, ascended into the atmosphere of His own star of beauty and Love, blessed His people, and together with the Kumaras and certain of His Spiritual Court Who were to accompany Him, He consciously descended into the atmosphere of Earth, taking up His abode at the Retreat now knows as Shamballa.  The Retreat is now only in the etheric realm.

Out from the Aura of Venus, the first great rosy glow of the expanding Aura of the Kumaras began to suffuse the sky with the glory of a Celestial Dawn.  Then upward soared a great five-pointed star until it stood suspended above the planet Venus intensifying the Aureole of colors.  All the souls of Venus knew that any Cosmic activity of the great Kumaras was presaged by the presence of the Star which appeared to herald announcements or decrees of the Lords of the Flame which would affect the progress of the great Venusian State.  Every heart on Venus was focused on that Star, waiting its message of the hour.  Slowly and majestically there rose into the Rays of the Star, four shining Golden Figures that stood for a moment pouring out Their blessing on the planet of their birth and their hearts’ deepest Love.  Little did their children know the deep feeling in the hearts of the Kumaras as They bade Their Star goodbye, not for a lifetime but for uncertain centuries yet unborn from the womb of time.  Then a burst of sound, as the people of Venus saw the Star begin to move outward toward the periphery of their sphere, and within it, moving slowly and majestically, the figures of the Solar Lords.  All fell on their knees and a beautiful hymn of blessing and Love rose from the inhabitants of Venus, tinged with the awareness of parting, and enfolded the departing figures in a mantle of most sacred Love.   Then the four Kumaras left the Light of Venus for the shadow of the earth’s aura.  Out of the seven Kumaras, four sacrificed Themselves for the sins of the world, and the instruction of the ignorant to remain till the end of the present manvantara.

Oh, how different the reception than the parting.  See the Earth spinning darkly on its bended axis.  No hearts upraised, no song of welcome gratitude.  Ah! Yes, about 100 small pinpoints of Light, like faint, flicking candles, guide the Cosmic Masters’ descent, and slowly and majestically the great pink Aura blankets the Earth.  What is the sudden comfort, hope and peace that enters into the hearts of men?  What causes the withered flowers to raise their heads, the birds to sing with new sweetness, the children to laugh again?  What is this mysterious, unseen ether that has entered into the very atmosphere of Earth?  Only 100 waiting spirits know, as they kneel in reverent Love before the smiling presence of their longed for Lord.  Ah, Sanat Kumara, Lord of Love.  One day shall we return you and your shining Band to your own beloved Star, and as You go, the shining Light of Earth will be a mighty crest that carries You triumphant, leaving us a Star of Freedom, accepted by the Cosmic Law, as a permanent focus of blessing in our system, through Your Love.

When He entered into that Temple of Light Great was His gratitude to those blessed Beings who had built it.  It reminded Him so much of His own beautiful court on the planet Venus.  Those Beings earned a tremendous karma of good merit for that service.  It is wise to think on these things, when we think on the mystics and seers who have been, who are now and who are yet to come.  Because the vision not coupled with actual service according to your means, capacities and talents will never be visible, tangible manifestation of works well done.  In the etheric realms are visions without limit, thought by many a man but never brought to form.  When Sanat Kumara returned from that Conference with the thought of Earth’s plight in His consciousness, one of those Beings for whom He felt very much was the Planetary Silent Watcher of the Earth.  If the planet which She had held within Her consciousness from the time that Helios and Vesta gave each Planetary Silent Watcher the form of a planet, think what that would have meant to Her if that planet was removed.  The other six Planetary Silent Watchers would have continued but She would have had to return to the system from whence She came and Her great service would not have been completed.

The great Silent Watcher of the entire planetary scheme has under Her seven Planetary Silent Watchers, just as in My office as Maho Chohan there are acting under My direction seven Chohans of the Rays.  It would have been devastating to the Silent Watchers to have the fourth Silent Watcher and Her activity removed, as it would be for Me to have the Ray of Purity removed from the spectrum which I work.  The Silent Watcher for the Earth is smaller than any of the Others.  She is extremely beautiful, and extremely grateful to Sanat Kumara.”

The End of Part I

Nancy’s Note:  Earth humans often have a difficult time with the purity of love and its verbal demonstrations that will greet us once we ascend to the 5th dimension.  We tend to think it is artificial, insincere, or manipulative.  We are accustomed to love as it is on Earth—tainted with impure motivations and personal need.

One reason I seek to share the Law of Life & Teachings of Divine Beings is to allow us to adjust between the exquisite beauty and purity of love that we will experience upon ascension – and – the lower levels of beauty and love we have known on Earth’s 3rd dimension of duality.

Amazingly, moving into the ALL GOOD requires adjustment!  It takes time to trust the ALL GOOD!

DAVID WILCOCK REQUESTS OUR PRAYER ASSISTANCE FOR THE NEW MADRID FAULTLINE.

I post this article, audio by David Wilcock,, and audio of  David’s interview of Ben Fulford because it offers a tremendous opportunity for LIGHT WORKERS to use our prayer power to heal the New Madrid fault line running beneath the Mississippi River and thereby prevent an earthquake that is predicted.  HAARP technology is predicted to be the cause of this earthquake.

As we move toward ascension, a major lesson we are to learn is that we are One with God … that All power dwells within each of us as manifestations of God upon Earth.  All negativity is temporary and part of the Illusion in which we have lived on Earth and we, as child gods, possess the power to heal Mother Earth.  We possess the capacity to render harmless any technology used for negative, harmful purposes.

I invite you to listen to the two audios by David and respond with your God-given power to defeat darkness with Light!  You may do so at the below listed URL.  David’s introductory article is first … as you scroll down the article, you’ll come to a paragraph entitled NOW FOR THE MJ3s and you’ll see the two audios.

ONE GOD FOR ALL

ONE GOD FOR ALL

Nancy Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

Our ability, to assist in bringing forth the Kingdom of God within ourselves and on our planet, depends first and foremost on understanding who God is (to the best of our present ability to do so).  The Apostle Paul explained his concept of God to the people of Athens.  Metaphysically, Athens signifies the intellectual center within humankind.  The people in Athens had erected an altar inscribed:  “This is the altar of the unknown God.”  Paul recognized that even though the Athenians did not know God, they felt the urge to worship something greater than they could conceive with their intellectual minds.  Paul explains in Acts 17:24-28:

“For the God who made the world and all things therein, and who is the Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; neither is he ministered to by human hands, nor is he in need of anything, for it is he who gave life and breath to all humankind.  And he has made of one blood all nations of human beings to dwell on all the face of the earth, and he has appointed seasons by his command, and has set limits to the age of men and women; for in him we live and move and have our being, as some of your wise men have said, ‘For we are his kindred.’”

God is above and beyond all else and present everywhere.  As omnipresent Spirit, God created all that is, in its original manifestation; God is First Cause and original Source.  The allegorical story of the Garden of Eden is an example of the Goodness and Love with which God creates.  God provided for all of Adam and Eve’s needs; they lived in the natural luxury and beauty of paradise.  God figuratively walked with and talked with them.  The channels of vision and direct hearing were open to Adam and Eve.  The omnipresence spirit of God was their companion and friend.  Negativity and pain were unknown.  They had no doubt as to their origin: they came forth from the heart and mind of God.  They wore the clothes of spirit; they were spirit.

In this Garden of Eden, all things were created from the divine substance.  God beheld all of creation and declared, “It is Good.” God creates because God is Creator.  All that God creates become co-creators.  Creation is an on-going process and the energy of creation is within all things.  Look at nature:  seeds create plants … plants create leaves, flowers, and fruit … stars create new stars … stars create light … rivers create beds through which to flow … birds create nests … animals create offspring according to their kind … human beings create children … the process of creation stretches throughout  eternity.  All things are interconnected; all of creation impacts upon all other facets of creation.  The life-giving energy within all things is God energy … divine energy … love energy.  GOD IS ALL THAT IS.  SEPARATION DOES NOT EXIST.  BECAUSE GOD IS LOVE, ALL THINGS ARE LOVED.

God needs nothing.  In the words of Paul:  “Neither is he ministered to by human hands, nor is he in need of anything.” God’s life-giving breath dwells within all creation.  God is life; without God, there is no life.  God needs nothing from humankind.  God is not dependent upon humanity or any other part of creation.  God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, whether or not human beings worship him, obey his commandments, or allow him to manifest through them.  God simply IS.

“God … appointed seasons by his command.” God created universal laws by which all of creation is bound.  The Sun rises every morning.  The stars are visible at night.  The Moon reflects the Sun’s light.  Spring always follows winter.  All of life moves through cycles or seasons.  Creation is an orderly process.  Corn seeds produce corn, not tomatoes.  Oak trees produce acorns, not fragrant roses.  Universal laws do not change.  We can count on them to manifest in our lives according to the way we use them.  It is by these universal laws that human beings create, whether consciously or unconsciously.

“And he has made of one blood all nations of humankind to dwell on all the face of the earth….” God created humanity as one family; we are all offspring of the One Mother/Father God.  We were created to live together on this planet in the Garden of Eden.  God created humanity as Daughters and Sons in her/his image and likeness.  That means we were created to love, to live in paradise, to live in obedience to universal laws, to express our divinity.

What happened?

Humanity was created in the image of God and given the gift of freewill.  That means we possess the freedom to choose.  The gift of freewill was granted so that we could grow up to be gods and goddesses, true offspring of God.  Needless to say, humanity has made some mistakes.

We have created a world in which we believe in separation—all kinds of separation.  We have forgotten who we are and why we are in physical bodies on this planet.  We have created a relationship with God that is based on fear:  fear of not going to heaven, fear of being punished for eternity in hell, fear that God will zap us unexpectedly, fear that God will not hear and answer our prayers, and fear of surrendering to the unfolding of God’s divine will in our lives.  We attempt to camouflage this fear; but, as long as we can sincerely state,  “God can do anything God chooses to do,” we have not allowed Truth to erase our fear.  God cannot do anything God chooses.  God is a God of Love and therefore, can do nothing that is not loving.  God gave us the gift of freewill, therefore, God cannot take away that gift or punish us for our mistaken decisions. GOD CAN ONLY LOVE US.   In that love, God patiently awaits our awakening to the true nature of all that is.   When we finally call out for help, God’s grace flows forth unimpeded, except by our own resistance to change.  We are loved beyond our capacity to conceive.  The problem is:  we have created a concept of God in our own image or worse.  We blame God for our suffering, pain, and limitations.  We have it all wrong.

During my days as a traditional minister, I sometimes presented the Children’s Lesson.  Heretofore, the youngest children had seen only male ministers dressed in a black robe.  One Sunday, when the children came to the front of the church for the lesson, I—a female minister wearing a white robe—met them.  One little boy looked up at me and said, “Are you God?”  I smile at his innocence and shudder to realize that all too often, we consider God “the man upstairs … the man who physically looks like us.”

This “man upstairs” concept of God leaves humanity feeling separated, and sometimes, even estranged from God.  We know all too well the unpredictability of humankind.  The “man upstairs” can be absent from our lives; he can fail to hear our prayers.  He can be preoccupied with other things.  It is easier to get angry with the “man upstairs” than it is to love him.

On the other hand, many call God “First Cause” or the “Source.”  Even though the titles are true, many then proceed to view God as far away and unattached to what happens to human beings.  The sense of separation becomes a chasm too great to cross.  We hear people say, “God doesn’t need me” or “God is too vast (or great) to pay attention to little me.”  In other words, “Why would First Cause love me?”  “Why would the Source consider me worth listening to?”  Either way, God is seen as far away and unrelated to our daily lives.

In Truth, God is that energy of love that is everywhere present.  God is the divine substance from which all things are made.  There is nowhere where God is not. In an effort to reveal our true relationship to God, Jesus taught us to address him as “Abba.”  Abba translates from the Aramaic as “father,” but possesses the connotation of the intimate relationship we share with “daddy or dad.”   To the western ear, “father” sounds more formal.  It is a term of respect, whereas “daddy or dad” is most often a term of affection and close relationship.  The term “mom” will work just as well.  The important issue is that we learn to communicate with God as a being of infinite love for us, his/her divine offspring.

Knowing God as our loving parent … as that being of love that is always present with us … who is all-powerful … and who wants only the Garden of Eden for us creates a tremendous shift in our view of life and of ourselves.  As God’s offspring, we realize we are never alone …  we are all-powerful … and that the Garden of Eden is already ours.  Our task becomes allowing that paradise to manifest in our daily lives.

God is the Mind of the Universe.  Just as our hearts are directly linked to the Heart of God through love, so our minds are directly linked to the Mind of God through our capacity to think and to intuit.  This link to the Mind of God is how we create; we create with our thoughts.  It is how we receive inspiration: we are inspired via our intuitive insights.   We often see evidence of our connectedness to the Mind of God or the One Mind, in the synchronicities that occur in our lives.  For example:  we think of a friend and she appears on our doorstep unannounced.  Or, we pray for a wheelchair ramp and a member of our church announces he has one for sale.  We are all connected to the Heart and Mind of God and thereby, to each other. Wherever we are, there is no separation.  Death does not exist, so those in spirit are not separated from those of us presently residing on the physical plane.  We feel separated because we lost our original ability to see into the world of spirit as easily as we perceive the physical plane.  We can be separated only by belief in separation.

Within the One Mind and Heart of God, “we live and move and have our being.” As offspring of God, we have the capacity to be all that our Mother/Father God is:  all loving and all powerful, possessing the ability to create all Good in our lives, and holding the potential to transform our world.  We, the offspring of Mother/Father God, can bring forth the Kingdom of God within ourselves and on Earth.

PREDICTIONS MADE IN A DIFFERENT ERA … ARE NO LONGER RELEVANT TO THE TIME YOU ARE IN NOW.

SaLuSa  14-March-2011

Sirius – Hobble Space Telescope

Dear Ones we must mention the massive earthquake in Japan that followed an earlier one in New Zealand. When you have countries that are in earthquake zones and actually on the Ring of Fire you are sitting on a powder keg, and there is always a chance that the big one takes place whether through natural or man-made means. At a time when Mother Earth is re-shaping the surface, you can therefore expect some more serious convulsions. In the case of Japan the potential exists for the tectonic plates to pass under each other, and as a result it could disappear into the waves. So we are grateful that the worst scenario did not occur, and have every sympathy and compassion for those dear souls who were affected. It is not our place to interfere, but we are allowed where possible to lessen the effects. Sometimes we are dealing with the needs of Mother Earth, and the cleansing must be completed before Ascension is possible, and as you will have noted the preparations are speeding up. Out of such disasters comes a wonderful opportunity for Mankind to help each other, and a coming together will cement friendly relationships important to the immediate future. It has been mentioned previously that all souls that pass over as a result of trauma, are carefully looked after and treated with much love. They do recover quite quickly and it is helped by them being re-united with their families and friends.

 

In general what you are seeing all around the world is the final cleansing that must take place very soon, and you will see the objective in what is happening. At some stage in the not too distant future we will be joining you, and then you can receive every help we can give along with details of what is needed to carry you speedily forward. Until we can all get started, things will appear disjointed and at times chaotic, but we can assure you in spite of that a clear and precise plan is in operation. It is just that for the time being we cannot disclose the details of our actions. The governmental changes are clearly most essential to our ability to work with you, and the last cabal must be and will be removed to prevent any further interference with our plans to release you from their control. In fact they have already been seriously weakened, and do not carry the influence or command over events as they did previously. Our allies have infiltrated their set up and successfully prevented an expansion of their activities. As long as they are contained, we can make progress with you and anyone who is aware and alert will notice the direction that we are going in.

 

Again we must mention the fear aspect that arises in such times as you are experiencing. We ask you to remain calm and know that it is not true that the end of the world is taking place. In no circumstances will it be destroyed or even seriously impacted by natural or man-made circumstances. Matters of that nature are within our control, and we are here to ensure that the cycle is completed as divinely decreed. Often what is referred to as support for outlandish predictions are old writings that were made in a totally different era to what you are in now. In other words most are no longer relevant to the time you are in now. Since the Millennium you have moved onto another path that, in spite of the current or recent calamities, is one that is less volatile. We would add that as always we are very active in ways not apparent to you, and we do whatever is allowed to ensure matters do not get out of hand. Karma is a factor that we cannot interfere with, but we can respond to your calls for help that are received by us in Love and Light.

 

Our desire is to get past the last hurdles that are holding up Disclosure, and that is a vital event that affects so many others. Be assured as slow as the progress is we are getting there, and it is close to happening. Keep your thoughts and prayers coming to us for open contact with you, and in your own way you will be helping speed up that event. We are very pleased with the way your consciousness levels have grown, and your acceptance of us and desire to meet with us is more powerful now than it ever was previously. That tells us that our approach has been exactly right, and over many years we have been able to dispel fears that have been deliberately created to keep us apart. Even now your media plays the fear card, but you are much wiser than before and see through their plans to keep us from meeting. It is time for such a coming together, and you will definitely meet with us your Space family and your ancestors from the Inner Earth. Oh yes, you have a lot to learn about your true history that has been kept from you or distorted, to convey only what the dark Ones see as necessary to keep you in their control.

 

You are to throw off your shackles very soon, and taste real freedom as a right that has been previously denied you. Your very way of living will move to a higher level with all of the advantages that modern technology can give you. With it will emerge the real you free from the dictates and oppressive controls that have kept you in slavery to the Illuminati. Their influence will by then have no more power to interfere with your lives, which will become most happy and wonderfully exciting. Keep looking ahead, and do not let the changes put you in fear of the future. All that is happening now is going to be short lived, and out of it you will see the purpose that will set you firmly upon the path to Ascension. Of course many of you have made excellent progress towards it, and are recognizing the changes in your levels of consciousness. That will become more evident this year, as there are key points when the energies are going to be uplift you even further.

 

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and tell you that if you can look upon what is happening as a means to an end that is for your benefit, you will quickly overcome any problems that affect you in a personal way. You obviously all have a life plan that is meant to fit in with them, and if you sit quietly and ponder what they are you will almost certainly gain an understanding. After hundreds of lives in so many countries and cultures you can be sure that you are so much wiser than when this cycle first commenced. Now it comes down to clearing whatever karma is still uncleared, and at a time when you are at your strongest to deal with it. Take it as it comes and do not fight it, but approach it with love in your heart for yourself. You are a great soul that has yet to understand your full potential, but very soon you will know without a doubt. Remember that we are with you at all times, in Love and Light.

 

Thank you SaLuSa.

Mike Quinsey.

 

IT IS THE STORM BEFORE THE CALM & REQUIRES AS MANY OF YOU AS POSSIBLE TO SEE IT THROUGH WITHOUT TAKING YOUR EYES OFF THE ULTIMATE GOAL.

SaLuSa  11-March-2011

Sirius – Hobble Space Telescope

 

The Universe awaits your presence as Galactic Beings, for which you are being prepared. As long as you have the desire to advance from Earth to the higher dimensions, you will reach them without any real difficulty. Everything that you need is in the process of taking place, and that is the great interplay of energies that come from as far away as the Central Sun. You make the effort to attract the higher energies and they will most certainly reach you. Proof already exists, as some souls are now aware that just recently their consciousness levels have risen quite substantially. This year will be one that opens up many opportunities for those of you who desire to contribute to moves to bring peace to the Earth, or partake in the restoration of Mother Earth to her pristine condition. We know there are many of you who are eager to help in some way, and be assured your offer will be noted.

 

What is very heartening is your appreciation of the situation that you are now in. It is the storm before the calm, and requires as many of you as possible to see it through without taking your eye off the ultimate goal. The distractions are many, and the dark Ones will not withdraw until they are given an ultimatum. Either they resign as requested or they will be placed in an untenable situation where they have no alternative. Every soul will at some stage have to face the music where their deeds are concerned, but we are not out to punish anyone and will allow the greater powers to deal with crimes against the Human Race. Everything about you is known and you cannot fool anyone, or lie your way out of what you have done. Even your intentions are known down to every thought that you have ever had.

 

You will obviously know if you have some dark deed on your consciousness, forgiveness starts with yourself. You have been in duality to learn from your experiences, and it is only human to make mistakes. These are not held against you, but at some time you will be called upon to make them good. The concept of “an eye for an eye” is not in fact how karma works, and you help decide what further experience you need to overcome your weakness. Ultimately you will become much stronger as a result of it, and never have to go through the exact same experience again. Lightworkers have normally reached a level of understanding where they can be expected to create very little karma in their present lifetime. There is an inner knowing of what is right or wrong that carries them through the challenges of duality. There is a stronger voice within that cautions them when they are likely to move away from their life plan. Freewill is your god given right, but once you agree to a life plan every opportunity is taken by your Guides to keep you on it.

 

When you have ascended you will have little or no problems with the lower energies, as they cannot exist in the higher vibrations. However, it is for example possible to incur karma, even when your motives have been pure and honest. In doing good there is a need to ensure that you do not also “interfere” with a soul’s life plan. However, you will be aware of what is required of you, and unlikely to inadvertently step out of line. You will in any event likely be part of a group that works from a shared consciousness. If you do, it will be because you are drawn together in a common purpose. Some of you incarnate together for that very reason, and where Earth families are concerned they can be very powerful. As you might say, “for better or worse” you will always find the ones you are meant to be with, so look at the lessons that arise from such associations. It does not matter who instigates the experiences that you have together, as whomsoever they touch is meant to be part of it.

 

Keep calm as the events on Earth progress, as at times it will appear rather unsettling but know that nothing will last for very long. There is a lot of clearing to take place, but very soon you will understand the purpose and take it in your stride. Better still disclosure will open the door to first contact with you, and in next to no time we will establish a world-wide communications system. You will know of our plans because we wish you to be part of what is going to take place. Certainly there will be increasing activity as time progresses, and meanwhile we monitor what is happening to keep a tight rein on the dark Ones. We carry out far more actions than you have been aware of, and of necessity we keep the details to ourselves. However, you have for example heard of our operations, to show that we meant our orders to your governments that nuclear weapons will not allowed to be used. We proved that we could at will disable the warheads on your missile sites.

 

Over millennia of time we have protected you and your Earth, and often that has been some natural calamity. Wars are your affair and it is karmic because of your previous desires to war with your neighbors. The big cry for peace has now brought you help, and we were allowed to respond to it. You have clearly stated that you have had enough of wars, and the plans to put a stop to them once and for all now exist. We will not have any difficulty in ensuring world peace. Again it comes down to our superior technology, and if attempts are made to break the peace agreement we will intervene with the blessing of the Creator. We therefore ask you once again to keep calm, and send out your Light to where or whom you feel needs it the most. Love is a powerful weapon that can melt the hardest heart, and as you come together to send it out so it carries much more power.

 

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and speaking for my group wish we could make a few landings to inspire you. However, we have to pay our respects to your protocol and it will all be done with proper planning and permission. Eventually we will be known all over the world, and you will find it fun trying to identify the civilization connected with the vast numbers of craft that will be seen. The smaller scout craft will be regularly seen in your skies, as these are specifically used for travelling in your atmosphere. In this connection, let us say that the one George Adamski did have a meeting with Venusians. They landed with their bell shaped scout craft, which type was sighted on a number of other occasions. In fact there have been numerous contacts of this nature, going back hundreds of years. We look forward to the exciting times ahead, and celebrations will be in order when we show up.

 

Thank you SaLuSa.

Mike Quinsey.

 

WHERE ARE YOU, GOD? A Metaphysical Interpretation of the Biblical Book of Job

WHERE ARE YOU, GOD?

A Metaphysical Interpretation of the Biblical Book of Job

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

http://www.pathwaytoascension.com/chapel/index.htm

INTRODUCTION

For thousands of years the biblical Book of Job has fascinated and puzzled scholars and laypersons. The Book itself offers no clues as to its original source and language, its age, or to its authorship. It could easily be said that the Book of Job has received more praise than any other book ever written. Its message is universal and timeless.

The Book of Job’s appearance within the lives of humanity is as mysterious as its probable author, Melchizedek.1 The unknown author of the New Testament book of Hebrews describes Melchizedek: “Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.”2 Equally mysterious are the layers of symbolism embedded in the Book of Job. Its depths reveal knowledge of the cosmos, esoteric astrology, gematria,3 and ancient mystery religions that is far beyond humanity’s capacity to comprehend at this point in our evolutionary process.

“Job is written in an extremely sophisticated learned Hebrew, with a higher proportion of words unique to itself than any other book of the Hebrew Bible.”4 The Kabbalah teaches that the Hebrew alphabet is alive with mystical meaning and numeric vibrations.5 Ancient Hebrew tradition reveals Melchizedek, King of Salem, taught the Kabbalist Sefer Yetzirah (or Book of Creation) to Abraham.6 If Job was indeed written in Hebrew, its mystical language only adds to the mystery and depths of this ancient classic. If Melchizedek was the author of the Book of Job, we can rest assured that much metaphysical knowledge is embedded therein. Earth humans have not scratched the surface of the hidden wisdom to be found in the Book of Job.

******

Our planet’s emergence into the New Aquarian Age will necessitate the recognition that there is far more to life than our five physical senses reveal. We must begin to view life as it truly is-multi-dimensional. Earth humans represent only one of many species of living, intelligent beings within the cosmos. All of creation is interconnected and influences all contained therein. Life on our planet Earth is a microcosm of the cosmic macrocosm, albeit a much less enlightened version.

As Earth humans awaken to the multi-dimensions in which we live, we find that we can communicate with those residing in various realms of existence. We begin to comprehend our interconnectedness and the vibrant life we all share in common. As we look into the night skies, we behold the stars and planets as the Light Beings that they are. They are among the heavenly hosts mentioned so frequently in the Bible. Know that Earth humans are surrounded by numerous species of beings who long to assist us in building an enlightened civilization upon our planet. Awaken to the fact that Earth humans are aware of only the most miniscule amount of knowledge concerning God’s creation.

The New Aquarian Age and the spiritual awakening that is occurring will require the re-creation of our planetary institutions, the re-writing of our books of knowledge, and the re-thinking of our concepts of life. In the distant past, golden civilizations have existed on our planet. With the Sun’s arrival in the constellation of Aquarius, the next 2,166 years are to be characterized by the re-building of a golden civilization on Planet Earth. The chaos we are presently witnessing is but the destruction that precedes the creation of something better.

******

The sacred texts of our world religions are far more than we suspect. Since I am familiar with the Bible, I will limit my references to it. For thousands of years, we have referred to the Bible as the inspired Word of God. However, our concept of the Bible has been limited by our own spiritual deadness. We study its surface and think we know the Word of God. We have yet to awaken to the tremendous depths within this sacred text. Layer after layer of symbolism is hidden beneath the surface words. The Bible is a living entity that holds, within its depths, knowledge far beyond our present capacity to comprehend.

I experience a slight hint of its immeasurable depths as I attempt to interpret the Book of Job. Job has held lifelong fascination for me. Yet, I am filled with reverence as I realize that I have only scratched at the surface of its true meaning. I am sure others, like Charles Fillmore, Corrine Heline, and Geoffry Hodson-all of whom sought to interpret the Bible metaphysically-experienced the same awe at such depths of meaning. Surface words have led many astray because we lack the wisdom of the Eye of God to see and the attunement to Spirit to hear the inner messages being conveyed to us through this living Word of God.

The New Aquarian Age marks a time in which the Bible is to be interpreted at increasingly deeper levels. Because this living book contains all Truth, we must interpret it by using the broadest spectrum of Truth available to us at this point in time. Its words stretch into infinity. We must approach it with the humility of one who knows how little Earth humans comprehend the vastness of Truth. No longer can we read the surface and believe we have read the Bible. It is time to move beyond the parameters of any one world religion and to integrate the whole of Truth, as we presently know it, into our interpretation of the Bible. We must recognize the presence of a universe of beings who communicate with us in myriad ways. No longer can we dismiss the ancients as those who were less evolved in their knowledge of the universe and the Truth of Being. Viewing Earth humans as the only living beings in the universe is to achieve the heights of ignorance and spiritual blindness. Rejecting the heavenly hosts as figments of the ancients’ imagination is tantamount to putting God in a 6 ft. box and declaring that it contains all there is to know about the Creator of the cosmos.

******

As you read my interpretation of the Book of Job, I affirm your discovery of the many facets of Truth to be found within the Bible. I have included an Appendix in which you may find a portion of esoteric astrology that may be applied to you, the individual reader. I do so in an effort to personalize Job’s story; for in Truth, Job is Everyone. Both my interpretation and the esoteric astrology reflect reincarnation as the path on which each of our souls awaken to and re-integrate into our daily lives the knowledge of our true identity as a Son or Daughter of God.

******

I have written Where Are You, God? A Metaphysical Interpretation of Job to be a biblical studies book. The reader will glean much more out of the study by reading the scriptural text along with my interpretation. As you read the Scripture, you are likely to receive insights of your own into the riches of the Book of Job.

Even though the metaphysics included in my interpretation may be unknown to the reader, I encourage you to read with an open mind and the willingness to consider alternative views of life and the spiritual Path.

“LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH” – PRAYING FOR WHAT WE WANT INSTEAD OF FOR WHAT WE DO NOT DESIRE

“LET THERE BE PEACE ON EARTH” – PRAYING FOR WHAT WE WANT INSTEAD OF FOR WHAT WE DO NOT DESIRE

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

NOTE: I originally wrote this article in 1984.  Today I realize it is the most important article I have ever written.  Why?  Because it reveals how we—in good faith—end up praying for what we do NOT want, instead of praying for what we truly desire.

***************

“Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me.” We happily sing these words, yet how many of us stop to ponder the request we are making—”Let it begin with me?” And if we do stop to consider: How may an individual assist in manifesting world peace?

Understanding the universal laws of energy is a major prerequisite. Being a peacemaker involves our most intimate thoughts and feelings, as well as the focal point of our attention while we are actively demonstrating for world peace.

This is the case because we live in a world of energy. With our thoughts and feelings, we are continually qualifying this universal energy (the creative ethers). The tools of creation are our thoughts, feelings, and spoken words. We become what we think, feel, and say. The more we concentrate our attention either on peace or on war—the more energy we send that particular concept. As we focus increasingly on one or the other, we create a thought-form, which becomes a definitive field of electromagnetic energy. “Like attracts like.” Therefore, each time we reflect on peace or on war, we energize the matching thought-form, causing it to increase in size, strength, and definition.

Take the example of anger. Think back to the last time an angry or hateful thought came to mind…… Did this thought not immediately bring forth the feelings of anger? Was not this thought nourished and enlarged by the emotions it elicited, until the energy you expended far exceeded the original memory? We often express this fact verbally: “The more I thought about it, the madder I got.”

Within the creative ethers, anger is anger; love is love; peace is peace. Whether we are angry with our spouse or angry at the world super-powers, the universal energy is qualified as “anger.” Likewise, working for peace involves naming the universal energy “peace,” whether at home, at work, or in our thoughts and actions toward world peace.

Because “like attracts like,” individual thoughts, feelings, and actions have a ripple effect. Like radio waves, individual qualifications of energy speed toward that with which they resonant, thus creating massive thought-forms. Energy fields characterized by thinking of war attract those same thoughts from people all over the planet. Our atmosphere becomes saturated with the energy of violence and war.

Think back to the time you entered a room and met a very angry or depressed person ….. Did you not quickly become disgruntled? Recall an acquaintance who seems always to be in good spirits, meets you with a happy smile, and speaks cheerfully to you…….. Do you not instantaneously feel a surge of joy? Hereby, we—as individuals—may permeate our world with the energy of peace. We can BE peace.

Most often our thoughts, feelings, and actions work for war instead of for peace because we wrongly qualify the universal energy. Anytime we become angry over or hate war, we increase the thought-form of anger and hate—the very factors that instigate violence.

We must make the shift in our thought and emotional energy from hating war to loving peace. As we increasingly focus our thoughts, feelings, and actions toward peace and familial love, we steadily magnify the corresponding thought-forms of an Earth bathed by the iridescent, healing waters of life.

This energy qualification shift can be extremely subtle. As we work for peace, we must constantly ask: How does this particular activity characterize the universal energy? For example: the more we fight against military build-up, the more energy we focus on weapons and war. Just listen to the words used: fight … against … military. All words of violence energized by our activity. The shift involves participating in constructive efforts for peace. Again, note the words: constructive … peace. Positive words energized by our activity. The more energy we expend in beneficial pursuits for peace, the larger its thought-form will become. But remember, it must be “constructive activity for peace,” not “speaking or demonstrating against war or military build-up.” By our thought projection, we qualify the energy and build one or the other thought-form. We defeat our goal if we organize a group entitled “Movement for Peace,” then proceed to orient the group activity around weapons … war … fighting … or using words on our banners like “against” or “anti-war.” In so doing, we convert our efforts for peace into demonstrations against war. As a result, a subtle, but extremely powerful, electromagnetic shift takes place.

Praying for “an end to all bloodshed” resonates with the energy for war, not the energy for peace. Immediately, a scene of bloodshed appears before our eyes and our emotions energize it. Think of the tremendous amount of emotional energy “against war” this prayer will engender within a large group. Clairvoyant persons can perceive the meeting room filled with chaotic waves of energy. On the other hand, praying for peace and familial love for all of humanity conjures up a tranquil scene of peace and love. Our emotions are soothed; we feel quietude. We can envision the entire planet encircled with hands clasped in love. The energy in the room is calm.

The true worker for peace learns control of his thoughts and feelings. He learns to focus on and build the positive regardless of the overwhelming negatively qualified energy within his environment. The true worker for peace loves peace instead of hating war.

By giving the thought-forms of war no thought, feeling, or activity energy, we diminish its electromagnetic energy field. As a result, it will shrink and eventually disappear from sheer starvation. However, “nature abhors a vacuum.” We must fill that vacuum by working for world peace—individually and collectively—through concentrating our thoughts, feelings, and actions upon building the electromagnetic energy field of peace and familial love. The ways to do so are limited only by our ability to creatively think, feel, and construct in the positive.

May we direct our thoughts, emotions, words, and actions toward generating glorious rainbow-colored thought-forms encircling our planet and saturating it with serenity.

Then, we may all sing knowingly, “Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me!”

 

THE ASCENSION JOURNEY AS SEEN THROUGH THE LIFE OF JESUS

One Entrance to the Temple Mound in Jerusalem

THE ASCENSION JOURNEY AS SEEN THROUGH THE LIFE OF JESUS

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed, M.Div.

For eons, the spiritual journey of humanity has involved alternating spans of time between life in a physical body and life on the plane of spirit. Living within a physical body entails limitations that do not exist during the intervening periods on the spiritual plane.

When we enter a physical body, we leave behind most memories of prior lifetimes on Earth. By age 4 or 5, most of us have forgotten our experiences on the plane of spirit. The reasons for our soul’s choice to enter another physical body are buried within our subconscious minds. We begin to view the present incarnation as the only time we have, or will, experience life on Earth. Sadly, our societal institutions allow us—even encourage us—to remain in this amnesic state of consciousness. The inevitable result is that we feel separated from God and cut off from the root of our being. Not knowing where our roots extend, we view every part of creation as separate from ourselves. We stand alone on an empty island.

We embark on the process of ascension when we open our conscious awareness to comprehending the truth about ourselves and all of creation. We can never learn all there is to know; however, with each new awareness we ascend into fuller consciousness.

Most persons presently incarnated on Earth have thus far—consciously or unconsciously—chosen to follow “the broad path,” meaning to meander their way into an expanded consciousness. To walk the broad path is permissible and will eventually achieve the same desired goal. On the other hand, many are choosing to tread the “narrow path” that requires a dedicated and conscious intention to pursue a continuing unfolding of higher consciousness—an awareness that extends into the higher realms of spirit and allows for the existence of an unending cosmos of living beings. The narrow path takes us straight up the mountain. The difference in the disciplinary effort involved is easily understood by comparing two approaches to the summit. One, we can choose to slowly walk around and around the mountain, gradually reaching the top, or two, we can climb the strenuous, rocky path straight up the mountain. Either way, all will eventually attain the goal of ascension.

The major events in the life of Jesus reveal the narrow path to ascension. The narrow path is the Way of Initiation and Service to others. Jesus incarnated at the beginning of the Piscean Age to show us the Way on the Path of Initiation. It has taken humanity an entire age (2000+ years) to reach the stage of consciously desiring to ascend into a higher realization of Truth. We now stand on the brink of a tremendous shift in perception. This shift will lift planet Earth and its inhabitants from the 3rd dimensional, physical plane of awareness to the 5th dimensional realization of a New Heaven and a New Earth.

No negativity can enter the 5th dimension. It is for this reason that each of us must walk either the broad path or the narrow path into 5th dimensional consciousness. Ascension takes place as we become beings of Light and Love, attuned to the divinity within, and cognizant that we are One with all that is. Jesus showed us the Way to accomplish this transformation of self by undergoing the 5 Initiations within public view.

Alice Bailey’s book FROM BETHLEHEM TO CALVARY offers an excellent description of the 5 initiations. I highly recommend it.

In ancient times, initiation took place in the temples of the mystery religions. It was a supervised, orderly, highly secretive process. With the incarnation of Jesus, this initiatory process was unveiled to the public in preparation for the arrival of the Aquarian Age now emerging. For the past 2000+ years, humanity has undergone—to greater or lesser extent—the 1st of the initiations and embarked on the 2nd. Because this process is now taking place in the world, as opposed to inside a cloistered environment, it is continuous and not necessarily accomplished consciously.

*************

Although Christian terminology is used, this description of the Initiations is not meant to exclude other religions. All of the world religions teach a form of the ascension process within their mystical groups.

*************

The 1st INITIATION is depicted by the Birth of Jesus, signifying the birth of the Christ (or Love) energy within us. Integrating this Love energy into our lifestyles requires more than simply attending regularly a church, mosque, or synagogue. Each of us was created to develop as an individual. Our 1st initiation begins as we make the conscious decision to integrate Love into our thoughts, words, and actions. Jesus taught us: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)

The ascension process is radical. We cannot adopt the Greatest Commandment as the rule of our lives then support actions on our planet that injure another human being. There are no exceptions in the command to Love. To undergo the 1st Initiation is to become a Disciple of Love. As we integrate Love into every fiber of our being, we are preparing for the 2nd Initiation.

The 2nd INITIATION is illustrated by the Baptism of Jesus. Water symbolizes our emotional nature. To be baptized with water is to be purified. It is a renunciation of our lower emotional nature with its materialism, greed, jealousies, resentments, hatreds, egotism, and negativity. Preparing for the 2nd Initiation can be most difficult because it involves purifying our negative emotions. Purification involves transmuting with Love. This is one reason forgiveness is a major lesson. All negative emotions must be purified, even anger against the person who deeply injured a loved one or us.

Knowing the truth of reincarnation is vital to completing the 2nd Initiation. Understanding reincarnation grants insights that help us learn forgiveness and gives a sense of purpose to our lives and relationships. We come to know that all persons present within our life-streams are there for a spiritual growth reason. For examples: The purpose may be to teach, or to accompany, or to support, even to inflict the pain that awakens us to a higher consciousness through learning to forgive and to love unconditionally. The commandment to “love your neighbor as yourself” includes all those who harm us. Once we truly understand how we progress spiritually by way of repeated incarnations, we realize there is absolutely nothing to forgive. Every individual who has impacted our lives did so as a means of assisting us to awaken to our own greatness, to stretch us into expressing a higher degree of Love.

The baptism of immersion, at an age of accountability, is a more graphic symbol than sprinkling a baby because it involves being submerged into the water (our negative emotions) and being lifted up out of the water (those negative emotions that formerly imprisoned us). Once lifted up, Jesus stood before his Father in Heaven (I AM PRESENCE) and heard the words, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am pleased.” (Matthew 3:17) Once we purify our emotional body, we hear this same confirmation from our indwelling God (I AM PRESENCE). Our channel of communication with God is expanded. No longer do we have to depend upon another human being to teach us; we have achieved the spiritual maturity to communicate directly with spiritual realms. At the same time, the temptations to go astray become extremely difficult to recognize.

Immediately following his 2nd Initiation, “Jesus was carried away by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil.” (Matthew 4:1) To be tempted by the Devil signifies the very subtle temptations our personality ego presents. Even with the best of intentions, many become trapped in egotism. Because these ego enticements are exceedingly clever, let’s look more closely at the temptations Jesus experienced. Analyzing them can assist us in learning to discern between the personality ego’s voice and the “still, small voice” of the God within speaking to us. (I Kings 19:11-15 is instructive in learning to discern the difference.)

Jesus is about to embark on his teaching ministry. During his sojourn in the wilderness, he wrestles with his personality ego while debating how to go about conducting his ministry. How can he gain the attention of the people?

First, Jesus’ ego considers the rocky soil present throughout much of Galilee. Multitudes of poor, hungry people live there. He could turn the rocks into bread and feed the poor. That would surely convince the people to follow him. Then, Jesus remembers words he read in his sacred text, “It is not by bread alone that man can live, but by every word which proceeds from the mouth of God.” (In Matthew 4:4, Jesus quotes Deuteronomy 8:3.) Converting rocks into bread would surely capture the people’s attention, but the resulting satisfaction would be short lived. His ministry must share the words that proceed from the mouth of God and provide lasting nourishment for the soul.

Second, Jesus’ ego ponders jumping off the pinnacle of the temple in Jerusalem, while calling for the angels to catch him. This time, Jesus can quote a portion of his sacred text that appears supportive of his idea: “For he shall give his angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.” (Psalm 91:11-12.) Wow! Sounds like Jesus has permission to begin his ministry by jumping into the arms of the angels. What a spectacular performance to make known the power of God’s angels! But wait. Jesus recalls his sacred text, “You shall not tempt the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 6:16) The laws of gravity operate automatically throughout the physical plane. To jump from the pinnacle would be to intentionally defy these laws, while expecting God’s angels to rescue him from his foolish action. Even though his ego can use the appearance of scriptural consent, Jesus knows his ministry must conform to the natural laws of physical plane.

Third, Jesus is tempted to sell his soul to the Devil in exchange for worldly power and fame. Surely, if Jesus held a position of powerful leadership in his own kingdom, the people would listen to him. That’s what people do—follow the one who has achieved wealth and fame. Once more Jesus’ ego loses its battle as he remembers another portion of his sacred text: “You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.” (Deuteronomy 5:6-7) The battle is over. Jesus makes his decision. His ministry is to exemplify a life lived as an expression of “God on Earth.” As a 2nd degree Initiate, he chooses to become a Son of God, a Son of Light and Love.

The 3rd INITIATION is symbolized by Jesus’ Transfiguration on the mountain top. “Mountain top” denotes higher consciousness. This initiation follows years of loving service to humanity. Jesus has succeeded in overcoming any remnants of egotism within self. He consistently gave all credit for his work to God. Jesus made sure his disciples understood that the words he spoke were not his own. “For I did not speak of myself; but the Father who sent me, he commanded me what to say and what to speak…. Just as my Father told me, so I speak.” (John 12:49-50) He made sure those healed in his presence knew the true source of their healing. “Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, ‘See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” (Matthew 8:4) When a man drew near him and said, “O good Teacher, what is the best thing that I should do to have life eternal? [Jesus] said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? There is no one who is good except the one God; but if you want to enter into life, obey the commandments.’” (Matthew 19:16-17) Struggles with his personality ego were over.

“Jesus took Peter and James and John, and brought them up to a high mountain alone; and he was transfigured before their eyes. His clothes shone and became white like snow in such a manner that men on earth cannot make white. And there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.” (Mark 9:2-4) Jesus has proven himself capable of the self-discipline required in order to forego personality ego needs. He has been tested time and time again to make certain the inner strength he needs—to move forward in his initiatory process—is firmly developed. His conscious awareness is now such that he could communicate with Ascended Masters Moses and Elijah. Together, they plan for Jesus’ final soul mission—to demonstrate to the world that there is no death. Jesus is now a 3rd degree Initiate.

Once we achieve the spiritual maturity required to transmute all of our personality ego needs, we are transfigured into Light in our 3rd Initiation. Our conscious awareness is lifted to the realms of the Ascended Masters. Together with them, we plan our final soul mission for this incarnation. We become Lightworkers, who serve humanity in accordance with our talents and lifetimes of preparation. Lightworker service is far more strenuous than simply fulfilling the requirements of a particular vocation. Fulfilling the final soul mission is the 4th Initiation, depicted by Jesus’ crucifixion. We now work hand in hand with the Ascended Masters as we assist in manifesting the Divine Plan on Earth.

*************

Before going into the 4th Initiation, let’s recall that the ancient initiatory process took place within the temples under the close supervision of hierophants, or priests. Today, our initiatory process takes place within full view of others and in a world that is antagonistic towards our efforts. Like Jesus, we are ridiculed, judged to be insane, and ignored by many. We may take one step forward and two steps backward simply because the external pressure to fit into the status quo world is intensely powerful. Our initiatory process cannot follow the systematic steps used in the ancient temples. Our progress is hit and miss … fall down and get up again … until we fully understand the message and meaning of Love. For this reason, we may pass through an initiation while retaining vestiges of unlearned lessons. We move forward as we continually strive to perfect what we have learned. It is, therefore, unwise to attempt to guess which degree of initiation any one individual has achieved. If we guess one level, we may then perceive gaps in spiritual maturity that will disappoint us. The extent of spiritual maturity possessed by any one person is between that person and God. We can much better spend our time evaluating ourselves and discerning our own weaknesses. As an individual, each Earth human must pass through the initiatory process created for this planet. We cannot cling to the coat tails of someone we admire or who appears to know more than we do. To do so slows down our own soul’s progress.

*************

The 4th INITIATION corresponds with Jesus’ Crucifixion. The cross symbolizes the spiritualizing of physical plane matter into everlasting life. At this particular time in our planetary history, many are embarking on their 4th Initiation by working to transform our planet from one of darkness into one of Light. We incarnated to participate—as fulfillment of our major soul mission—in the ascension of our planet Earth. We are working in conjunction with the Ascended Masters and the Galactic Federation of Light. For thousands of people throughout this planet, this transformation has meant laying down their lives, making tremendous financial sacrifices, and keeping on when keeping on has become exhausting. Like Jesus was ridiculed on the cross, many of us have been ridiculed, defamed, and excluded. Many continue on under threats made on their lives and those of their family. Others refuse to allow one arrest after another—even incarceration—to stop them. Most importantly, we strive to remain the epitome of Light and Love in action. We focus on and point to better ways: the Way of Love, the Way of Light.

*************

Jesus taught us, “He who wishes to follow me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; and whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it.” (Matthew 16:24-25) He is describing the 4th Initiation. Jesus was the first one to achieve Initiate status within full view of the public. He showed us the Way.

As he allowed his body to hang on the Roman cross, he realized he had accomplished his soul’s mission. He once said to his disciples, “This is why my Father loves me, because I lay down my life so that I may take it up again. No man takes it away from me, but I lay it down of my own will. Therefore I have the power to lay it down, and I have the power to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.” (John 10:17-18) From a “son of man,” Jesus progressed through the initiations to “Son of God.” He walked the Path of a Son of God. Then, while he hung on the cross of matter, the windows of heaven opened within his consciousness and he spoke to his Father, “It is finished.” (John 19:30)

The 5th INITIATION is illustrated by Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension. With the crucifixion of our 3rd and 4th dimensional consciousness and needs on the cross of matter, we stand ready to be resurrected into newness of life—to ascend into 5th dimensional consciousness. Ascension of planet Earth and many of its inhabitants into the 5th dimension marks the beginning of the Aquarian Age—the emergence of a New Heaven and a New Earth. In 2011, we stand on the threshold of this magnificent unfolding.

Weary though we may be, we must continue on! Not only are we to BE Light and Love, we are to DO acts of Light and Love. Then, as we allow our physical plane lives to hang on the cross of matter—of our own accord—we will gaze into the windows of our enlightened consciousness and say to our Father/Mother God, “It is finished.”

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth has passed away; and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with [Earth humans], and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and the very God shall be with them and be their God. And he shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor wailing, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things have passed away.’” (Revelations 21:1-4)

SOUL TALK – WHAT CHILDREN WANT FROM PARENTS

SOUL TALK – PARENTING – WHAT CHILDREN WANT FROM PARENTS

by Nancy Brooks Detweiler on Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 1:36pm

My granddaughter, Abigail, and I use to spend hours writing and illustrating stories.  When she was in the 5th grade, I got permission to allow her to contribute to a 2-3 minute radio talk show segment on parenting from a child’s point of view.  Below is the written version we presented over the radio.  It was Abigail’s radio debut.

Parenting

Q: What can parents do in order to be more effective with our youth?

 

A: In order to answer this question, my granddaughter Abigail and I spoke with several of her classmates.  We present this SOUL TALK in a conversational format, relating the observations of fifth graders.  Listen, parents!

Nancy: Tell me, Abigail, the most important thing a parent can do?

 

Abigail: The most important thing is to tell you that they love you so you do not feel lonely and that you are just there for no purpose.  If your parents don’t tell you that they love you, you start to believe that something is wrong with you and that no one else will like you either.

 

Nancy: So it is important for parents to say, “I love you” in such a way that makes you like who you are.  Give me another example of what parents can do.

 

Abigail: They can listen to what you have to tell.  It is good to ask, “What did you do today?” so they know what’s happening with you.

 

Nancy: And that gives parents the opportunity to know who you are as an individual person.  Give me another reason it is important for parents to listen to their children.

 

Abigail: When they are too busy to listen, you feel you have no one to talk to.  It feels like no one cares what’s happening with you.  This makes you feel alone and that you have to do something big to get attention.  Most of the time, that’s something bad.

 

Nancy: That’s true and it’s so much better for parents to want to “be present with” the child.

 

Abigail: Yeh, like playing games together or helping you practice for something.

 

Nancy: How does parents “being present with” the child make you feel?

 

Abigail: Wanted … as if you are somebody!

 

Abigail: What do you think is good for parents to do with their children?

 

Nancy: From the point of view of SOUL TALK, parenting is a major avenue of soul growth.  It offers the perfect opportunity to learn the lessons of selflessness, unconditional love, and cultivating an environment in which each child is encouraged to develop according to his/her unique talents and interests.  Children and parents contracted, before taking on a physical body, to assist each other in enhancing soul growth.  The learning process is reciprocal.  For example:  a powerful, assertive Mom has a gentle, artistically talented daughter.  In learning not to be overly dominant with her daughter, the Mom can enhance her ability to be gentle.  The daughter’s soul very likely chose her Mom in order to learn how to be more assertive.  As the two learn from each other, their souls acquire a state of balance between assertiveness and receptivity that is indicative of spiritual maturity.  The examples of mutual soul growth between parent and child are innumerable.

 

In summary, parents, your children would have you view them as equal, yet unique, members of the family with whom you talk in depth, with whom you spend quality time, and to whom you frequently say, “I love you” by your words as well as the respect you show them as individuals.  Each parent and each child has an integral role to play in the overall divine plan for humanity.  Wise parenting allows the child to unfold in ways that are expressive of that soul’s desires and purposes for physical incarnation.

 

Thank you, Abigail, for your assistance with SOUL TALK.  I love you.

 

Abigail: I love you too, Grandma Nancy.

 

HOW REINCARNATION PLAYS OUT IN LIFE

How Reincarnation Plays Out In Life

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

Several years ago, I had a regular 2-3 minute segment on a radio talk show called SOUL TALK, based on questions submitted by our listeners. SOUL TALK is based on a recognition of reincarnation as a means of advancing on the spiritual path. Questions relating to personal experiences are an excellent avenue for revealing how reincarnation plays out in our earth plane lives. With this understanding, we can make more enlightened decisions about how we want to live our lives and how to go about assisting others.

I am supplying some of the actual questions with SOUL TALK’s answers.

********************

SOUL TALK #22:

Q: Please explain the concept of “karma.”

A: Karma is the basis for reincarnation on the physical plane. It represents the positive and negative energy we create by the way in which we live our lives. In biblical terms, “we reap what we sow.”

In very simplistic terms, humanity has forgotten that, in actuality, we live and move and have our being within the energy of God. Instead, we believe ourselves to be separate from God. We have also forgotten all the powers that are ours as god beings.

Reincarnation offers us repeated opportunities to recall all that we have forgotten. However, until we fully recall our true identities, we make mistakes. We create negative energy fields within our being that must be transmuted and transformed into the positive. We create this negative energy in a vast number of ways, such as through hating, abusing, or harming another member of the human family. The higher we climb on the spiritual evolutionary spiral, the more subtle the ways become of creating negativity within our energy fields. For example: the commandment “do not kill” can operate on multiple levels. One level can be the physical act of killing an individual; another level can create the same amount or more negative karma through the psychological killing of another person by repeatedly thinking, not even verbalizing, negative thoughts about the other. The more spiritually awakened we are, the more responsibility we have for our negative thoughts and actions. Why? Because we know better.

During our cycle of physical incarnations, we also create positive karma in myriad ways, such as: through the use of our talents and skills in service to others and the planet, our efforts to grow spiritually, the unconditional love we give to others, listening to and empathizing with others, and through living out the Truth that we are all members of the family of God.

The goal of reincarnation is to transmute the negative karma to such a degree that we can ascend in our knowledge of union with God and step off the wheel of rebirth. We, thereby, become Christed beings.

SOUL TALK # 12

Q: How does SOUL TALK respond to the level of violence we are seeing among our youth?

A: The basis for violence among youth lies in humanity’s misunderstanding of self and our spiritual blindness to who we truly are: spirit beings temporarily inhabiting a physical body for the purpose of education and spiritual evolution. As a result of this spiritual blindness, our view of life is distorted by our misconceptions.

Physical incarnation, as viewed from the soul level, is to be characterized by the recognition that each of us is a unique human being, possessing talents and abilities that our souls have chosen to develop. We did not take on a physical body so we could be cast into a standard mold and be like everyone else. Parents and teachers need to realize this fact and strive to assist every child to develop his/her own special identity. It is when the child feels inhibited from expressing this uniqueness and ignored for who he is that we find him responding with violence. The child is expressing frustration, feelings of powerlessness, and an inability to get anyone to relate to him as a unique human being. He is screaming to be seen as who he—alone—is.

In addition to providing the basic necessities of life, parenting needs to focus upon getting to know the child as different from all other human beings. This individual uniqueness needs to be appreciated and developed. Parenting and teaching must be based upon the belief that every individual has a unique role to play in the unfolding of the Divine Plan for humanity. There are no superfluous human beings. All have a role to play. All are individual threads to be used in weaving the tapestry of God’s plan for our planet Earth. The child growing up in this type of environment will have an understanding of individual differences and recognize the value of them. He will have a positive self-esteem with no need for violent behavior in order to be noticed, admired, and empowered to make his contribution to our world.

We set the stage for violence by placing the emphasis upon uniformity rather than uniqueness. We can overcome violence by respecting every child’s unique combination of talents and needs and, by striving to assist him in achieving his soul’s purpose for incarnating on the physical plane. In this New Aquarian Age, education will become just that: assisting each child to develop along the lines of his soul’s design for this sojourn on Earth. Then, we will see children blossom, like fragrant roses, into all they incarnated to be!

SOUL TALK # 19

Q: We are seeing so much devastation on our planet. What soul purpose is served by the destruction of property and the loss of lives?

A: First, recall our true identities: spirit beings temporarily inhabiting physical bodies. Our souls have chosen to incarnate on earth plane in order to evolve through experiencing the life situations to be found here. The goal of all spiritual evolution is to remember who we are, where we came from, and what mighty powers we possess.

Second, there are no accidents. Prior to physical incarnation, our souls chose the family-of-origin, geographical locale, and the ethnic and religious groups into which we were born. Our choices are influenced by the lessons we desire to learn while living on earth plane. For example: a soul desiring to learn that God is sufficient for all our needs may choose to incarnate into a geographical locale where devastation via earthquakes is known to occur. We choose to incarnate into a group of people who also plan to use the earthquakes as a learning tool. Within the group, some souls will use the earthquake to learn how to care for others, some to experience being rescued from a life-threatening situation by an individual toward whom they are intolerant, and others to be torn away from all material concerns in order to realize that family and friends are their most precious possessions. Still others have chosen to use the earthquakes as their means of leaving the physical body and returning to spirit. Those whose souls plan to exit earth plane will find themselves located where the opportunity to leave will be presented. Those whose souls plan to survive will do so, even if it means being thrown into the safety of a tree: an example that actually happened to a toddler during a tornado in the Midwest. The toddler was unharmed.

For those who remain on earth plane, the so-called death of loved ones is painful, yet offers even more learning opportunities; such as, developing the ability to function independently. Each person experiences the earthquake according to the soul’s intentions.

No event is without soul meaning; no circumstance is without purpose. And through it all, a God of love allows us to learn at our own pace and in our own way.

SOUL TALK # 33

Q: What can we do to assist in bringing order out of the chaotic conditions on our planet?

A: Chaos has a constructive purpose; it can be a force for healing and transformation. As we seek to re-create order out of this chaos, we have the opportunity to establish a better world.

The most valuable contribution any of us can make is to remember who we are and where we came from. We are spirit beings temporarily inhabiting a physical body. Eons ago, we came from the heart of God as individualized parts of the Whole. In the truest sense, we are beings of Light and Love. As more and more of us remember who we are and live our lives as Light and Love, we contribute to what is called the “critical mass.” When a “critical mass” of Light and Love is achieved, the consciousness of our entire planet will be lifted. We will overcome fear with love. We will replace violence with the realization that we are one human family.

It is essential that we learn to supervise our feelings and thoughts because they are the energy of creation. We are what we think and feel. Now that the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field is decreasing, our feelings and thoughts are manifested more rapidly; thus, the increased number of synchronicities we are experiencing in our lives. As we develop the self-discipline to monitor our feelings and thoughts and to consciously convert them from fear to love, we are literally creating order out of chaos.

Jesus taught, “You are the light of the world.” As the light of the world, we are also the means through which peace and harmony can be established on our planet. As we focus our minds and hearts on peace and love, our energy field radiates that peace and love out to the world. All of us possess the capacity to help in healing our planet; we all have our role to play. Some of us will be the leaders and the workers. Others will support those who lead and work by concentrating our thoughts and feelings on love, light, and peace. Together all of us, young or elderly, rich or poor, healthy or sick, can transform our chaotic world into one of peace with justice for all. Together, we can create a new and much better world!

SOUL TALK # 21

Q: If a recognition of reincarnation is so valuable for the soul’s growth, why do we witness such abject poverty in countries that have embraced this concept for centuries?

A: The large scale planetary problems, such as poverty and starvation, are indicative of the degree of spiritual blindness still present within the whole of humanity. We, as a whole, have not perceived the Truth that we are One Family—God’s Family. We refuse to recognize that planet Earth is capable of supporting all of its inhabitants, IF we share its resources. We, in the West, have been taught to believe in the “survival of the fittest,” and can, therefore, very easily look into the eyes of one in poverty and convince ourselves it is natural and okay.

Reincarnation’s companion concept is that “we reap what we sow.” It is all too easy to look upon the poor and say, “They are reaping what they sowed.” This may be true; however, it does not relieve us of the responsibility to help overcome the fact of poverty on our planet. When we look the other way, we are sowing the seeds of unconcern that we will reap from others in the future. One of the chief ways by which we incur karmic debt is the refusal to assist those less fortunate than we are. Conversely, service to others is a major means by which we pay off karmic debt.

There can be many reasons why souls choose to incarnate into poverty. Some reasons may surprise us. For example: All souls play a vital role in the unfolding of divine order on a planetary basis. In order for the human family to learn ways to share the planet’s resources with all its members, large numbers of souls must volunteer to incarnate into poverty, thereby presenting to others the motivation to create a means of sharing. As these volunteers live in poverty, they not only assist their planetary family, but also pay off karmic debt through their service.

An individual soul may incarnate into poverty in order to develop empathy and the skills to manifest a better life for self and, in turn, for others. All life situations have within them an upward spiral of possibilities and positive spiritual evolution. It is up to the individual soul to use every condition of life as a means of constructive growth, both for self and for others.

SOUL TALK # 17

Q: Fear is rampant on the planet. How can we ease this fear?

A: The root cause of fear is that we humans have forgotten who we are—spirit beings temporarily inhabiting a physical body. As long as we believe that we are solely the physical body, we are vulnerable to fears of deprivation, ill health, violence, old age, and death. We fear because we believe ourselves to be powerless and separated from God. Many of us have been taught that God is to be feared, that God is vengeful and might punish us with an eternity in hell. When we cannot be absolutely sure what God will do—send us to heaven or hell—the foundation on which we build our lives is based on fear. If we do not trust our Creator to love us unconditionally, who can we trust?

It is time to wake up to our true identities. For thousands of years, the mystics in all major world religions have recognized that God dwells within all human beings. God is the center of our being. It is impossible to be separated from God. Consider how different our planet would be if all persons perceived this spark of divinity within themselves and others.

Instead of pursuing external ways to express power over others, we could be secure as we allow the God within to manifest through us in powerful ways and, to do so in accordance with our soul’s goals for this incarnation. Instead of submitting to what we have been taught is the inevitability of ill health and aging, we could rest assured that God expresses through us as perfection. God does not get sick; God does not grow old. Instead of seeking ways to prolong our physical plane lives, we could find peace in the knowledge that our souls will simply leave the physical body at one of two times: when its allotted amount of physical energy has been expended – or – when the soul’s mission has been completed and it chooses to return to spirit.

In actuality, the only thing to fear is allowing fear to creep into our lives. The negative energy of fear attracts fearful situations. On the other hand, the positive energy of trust and surrender to the God within attracts positive circumstances.

To learn more about our true identities, go to my web site: www.pathwaytoascension.com and click on the “Your Divine Self” in the left hand column of the home page. I highly recommend ordering a wallet size copy of Elizabeth Claire Prophet’s Divine Self chart and the booklet entitled Accessing the Power of Your Higher Self. These two meditation tools hold the potential to change your life forever.

SOUL TALK # 82

Q: I like to think of myself as a “good person”; however, there have been times in my life when I behaved, especially within relationships, in ways that now make me feel guilty. How can I learn to forgive myself?

A: Forgiving self is one of our most difficult challenges. Jesus taught us to pray: “Our Father, who art in heaven …. forgive our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” This prayer appears, on the surface, to teach us to seek forgiveness from God for our own trespasses and to forgive those who trespass against us. But what about forgiving self?

In order to forgive self, we must remember our true identity. We are beloved Sons & Daughters of our Father/Mother God. Eons ago, we made the freewill choice to experience life on the plane of duality. Thus, our spiritual evolutionary path entails a knowledge of life in which we are aware of both good and evil. Good is living life in attunement to God; evil is living with our backs to God. We evolve spiritually when we make the conscious choice to attune with Good. We make mistakes and suffer the consequences when we choose to experience—even a portion of our lives—with our backs turned to God. Thus life, for us, is an experiment in learning to choose consistently the Good. Along the way, we do make mistakes, just as we make mistakes on a class examination. It isn’t that we intend to make the mistake; we do so out of ignorance or error thinking. We do the best we can with our limited amount of conscious knowledge.

The secret in the Lord’s Prayer is that “Our Father, who art in heaven” is the Divine Part of ourselves, the I AM Presence. Like Jesus, our elder brother, we are both human and divine. The divine part of ourselves is our guiding Light, as we seek to evolve through our human experiences on the plane of duality. When we pray—for forgiveness of our trespasses—to our Father (or I AM Presence), it is the human part of us admitting a mistake to the divine part of us.

Think of “our Father” as being our professor in the physical plane classroom. The mistakes we make in our learning process may result in temporary painful consequences, but have no lasting impact as long as we strive to correct them. So forgiveness of self involves a conscious effort to score higher on our next human examination. Forgiveness of self means we use our mistakes to compel us forward on our spiritual journey. Forgiveness of self is learning from our mistakes. We take forgiveness of self a step farther when we intentionally contribute Good in honor of the person with whom we made the mistake. This act of service to others may transmute any negative karma (or energy) resulting from our mistakes. We help no one when we simply choose to wallow in regret. Positive action for Good allows our divinity to manifest within our human classroom. We forgive ourselves as we surrender to “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done” in our human experience, as it is in the heaven of our I AM Presence.

SOUL TALK # 25

Q: How can we distinguish between selfishness and self-love?

A: Selfishness indicates a lack of self-love. It is egocentric and stems from a gnawing inner sensation that whispers, “I am not okay.” The selfish person looks outside of self to satisfy feelings of lack: lack of power, lack of self-love, lack of self-esteem. The motivational basis for selfishness is a belief in separation that says, “If I don’t look out for myself, no one else will.”

Self-love is a recognition of one’s true identity as a worthwhile and beloved member of God’s family. The motivational basis for self-love is a knowledge of self as a valuable being, who resides on the planet in order to fulfill a specific role within the divine plan. Self-love stems from an awareness that you are a temple for the Divine Spirit dwelling within and seeking expression through you. Though, at times, you may feel alone, there is an inner knowing that you are not separated from the Source of all life.

Self-love means having a sense of personal identity and purpose that underlies all decisions. For example: When confronted with a decision as to whether or not to go along with your peer group, the person who loves self will have the courage to say “no” to self-destructive behavior. Self-love does not make choices based on the desire to convince someone else to like you. Instead, love of self grants an intuitive knowing as to which person and what environment is good for you. Self-love feels no need to rescue or to be a martyr; in fact, both patterns of behavior can stem from an unconscious and selfish focus on the psychological needs of self.

The person who loves self possesses the capacity to love others unconditionally. Self-love is not selfish; instead, it is the prerequisite for all other expressions of love.
