JOBS, SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, & FASCISM ARE NOT 5TH DIMENSION REALITIES

JOBS, SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, & FASCISM ARE NOT 5TH DIMENSIONAL REALITIES

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

       At the moment, our planet appears to hover on the edge of a steep cliff from which we are about to plunge into the dark, rocky unknown.  The cry for jobs is heartfelt … the threat of socialism, communism, fascism frightening.

What do these terms actually mean?  A job is something we regularly perform in exchange for wages and in accordance with someone else’s guidelines as to how we perform that job.  We may or may not enjoy our job, but hang onto it because our 3rd dimensional reality tells us “jobs are scarce.”  We view ourselves as dependent upon others to provide us a job.  Although we may yearn to follow another occupation, we most often grit our teeth and work on our job until we can retire.   We put in our time, as we often explain with a sense of resignation to life as it appears to be.

Socialism is a word Americans throw around a lot—a dirty, dirty word.  Socialism is defined by Merriam-Webster as collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.  The characteristics of the collective or government will determine the quality of socialism.  We participate in many collectives and governmental forms of socialism and think nothing of it because we call them co-ops, churches/synagogues/mosques, national parks, Social Security, Veterans’ benefits, Medicare, Medicaid.

Communism is a term that sends shivers down our spine.  Merriam-Webster defines communism as a system that advocates the elimination of private property and in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed.  We live with all types of communism and think nothing of it:  religious convents and monasteries, the Jewish kibbutz in Israel, communes, even the ancient Essene Community at Qumran, Israel in which Jesus was a very familiar figure.

Fascism reminds us of Hitler and we quake in fear.  Merriam-Webster defines fascism as exalting the state—and often race—above the individual, a centralized government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.  After 9/11, Americans lived with fascist-like attitudes.  Patriotism and no criticism of our leaders were dominant qualities.  Affirmation that: I am a patriot took precedence over objectively searching for the truth regarding 9/11.  The public’s vehement opposition to anyone presenting a story differing from our government’s official statement held silent those who dared search for explanations and a more positive means by which to deal with conflict.  Many declare themselves to be patriots in compliance with the mob psychology into which democracies are so prone to descend.  Many have targeted Muslims as the objects of hate and fear.  Americans have created for themselves many characteristics of fascism and continue to live by them.

Thus, in one form or another, Earth humans have personally experienced each of the above:  a job, socialism, communism, and fascism.

The eternal part of ourselves, the Soul, remembers a time when life was idyllic.  That’s why we strive to create better lives for ourselves.  Accepting jobs as the only option available and the formation of these ideologies have been attempts to reclaim that idyllic life.  All have missed the mark because they were created on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality, by individuals who—within themselves—were a mixture of varying degrees of good and evil.

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

       2011-2012 proclaims a new Way of Life.  Into this mixture of political ideologies experienced in countries around our planet, the converging of cycles of time into one huge leap forward for Earth humans requires us to leave behind all our preconceived ideas and to create a 5th dimensional, galactic society on Earth.  Our galactic family will join us … teach us the characteristics of a galactic society … share their technology … assist us in healing ourselves and the planet in preparation for ascension to the 5th dimension of consciousness.

New concepts will increasingly be introduced to an Earth society that has existed for thousands of years while utilizing only about 10% of our brain power.  We have believed ourselves to be the only intelligent beings in Creator God’s vast cosmos.  Competitionsurvival of the fittest … the haves and have-notsGod as a distant entity, separate from us and on whom we blame our personal and environmental suffering—all of these beliefs and folkways must be left behind.

To leave behind life as we have known it and be open to creating a new and better society demands a total revamping of all that is familiar to us.  The recent debt crisis in Washington, D.C. provided a vivid several weeks portrayal of the futility of continuing to do things the old way.  A peaceful, loving society cannot be built upon a foundation of winners and losers, haves and have nots.  Life on the 5th dimension is not an eternal football game in which we root for one team and celebrate the loss of another.  We must give up all that has caused us pain, deprivation, and loss of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  We must awaken to the ways by which we have been manipulated, used, and shackled—awaken to our true state as sovereign beings.

Heretofore, the various modes of government and organizations have been given names:  democracy, republic, socialism, communism, fascism according to the particular characteristics assigned to them.  Within our minds, we encase each category behind impenetrable walls that will not allow leakage of qualities from one classification to another.  We think, “Leakage is bad.”  We forget that all these forms have been attempts to create a well-functioning society on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality that houses good and evil.

Jobs were created to assist the employer in accomplishing his goal.  Little thought is given to workers and the resulting ability for them to pursue happiness.  Jobs are a means of control, to render the workers dependent upon the whims of the employer.  In the majority of cases, personal creativity is stifled unless it directly improves the state of the employer.  The ever-present threat of losing my job keeps workers in line and numb to possibilities of self-fulfillment.  When workers do lose their jobs, they feel cast aside, helpless.  It can be devastating to self-esteem because we are judged by the jobs we hold.

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

       A 5th dimensional galactic society will be very different.  Negativity no longer exists.  Suffering of any kind ceases.  However, we must first create this society, using the new concepts being revealed to us.  These concepts will resemble many that we have heretofore categorized as socialism, communism, or fascism.  The difference will be that we are creating a 5th dimensional society in which they cannot be tainted by egos, manipulation, or power struggles.

The first of these concepts is, We are One.  We achieve this community of Oneness by moving beyond all discrimination, regardless of the reason, and recognizing the equal value of every individual.  At present, discrimination still plays a huge role in our planetary society.  It must cease.

The second concept is, We are every one a sovereign being.  All are granted—by our Creator God—the same inalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.  At present, this may translate into the basic rights of all to health care, to have meaningful input into the work setting, and to be recognized as the integral parts of society all are.

The third concept is, Every human being has a role to play in unfolding the Divine Plan for Earth.  No one else can play the divinely given role of another individual.  A 5th dimensional galactic society honors the Divine Plan by allowing every one to follow the vocation to which he/she feels led.  Individual Astrological Soul Maps mirror the Divine Plan and act as the determining factor in guiding each child into the vocation that best fulfills the talents and yearnings of the individual and the Divine Plan.  Jobs will no longer exist.

The fourth concept is, There is no lack.  Within each of us resides the power to manifest abundance.  At present, we experience lack because we believe in it as one of the illusions that characterizes the 3rd dimension.  We may begin the process of creating an abundant society for all by allowing the old financial system, on which the world economies are presently based, to collapse and instituting a new financial system that is fair to every human being.  Within a few years, money as we know it will become obsolete.  As we work with our galactic family in healing the earth, there will once more be an abundance of healthy foods and clean water.  There will be no more extremes of weather, no more need for fossil fuels.

The fifth concept is, There is no private property.  As we learn to manifest whatever we desire, there is no need for private property as we understand it today.  As sovereign beings, we will possess the capacity to manifest a beautiful home wherever we are for as long as we choose.  All is energy and can be returned to the creative ethers anytime.

The sixth concept is Cooperation, not competition, in accordance with the Divine Plan.  No more political parties to compete with each other; no more power struggles, no more selfish ego manipulations.  Our leaders are to be chosen solely on the basis of their willingness and capacity to lead by following the Divine Plan for Earth.  Spiritual maturity determines their readiness.  We are to evolve out of religions as we presently know them.  Because our leaders will be divinely qualified to lead according to God’s Plan for Earth, citizens can accept them as fulfilling their role in the Divine Design and freely cooperate with them.

The seventh concept is Worldwide Peace.  Wars and their systemic causes will cease to exist.  There can be no violence—psychological or physical—on the 5th dimension.  Peacekeeping forces may be needed for a few years as we create our galactic society, but not permanently.

The eighth concept is, All is Love.  Love for all human beings is the foundation for government and its policies.  Children are reared in an atmosphere of love and appreciation for who they are as individuals.  To engage in the Arts—music, art, drama—will be an integral part of life.  Opportunities to learn will be endless and freely given.  Government and parenting are centered upon developing each human being to their fullest capacity.

The ninth concept is Service freely given to all.  Selfless service is recognized as a means to evolve spiritually and is freely given.  Service is also the way in which we participate in the unfolding of the Divine Plan.

The tenth concept is, Divine Spirit permeates all things.  Every facet of nature, every human being is known to be Divine Spirit in manifestation.  No longer will we treat the Earth or anything on it as not worthy of honor and appreciation.

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

       As you can see in the summary of characteristics of the 5th dimension, they contain facets of the prior, multiple efforts Earth humans have made to govern.  It is important to remember that all 3rd dimensional activities are created within a mixture of good and evil and therefore reap adverse effects, as well as some good.

Earth humans are also manipulated by the use of slogans, names, and tightly contained categories.  For example, “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs” was the slogan many politicians used in the 2010 elections.  They got elected because Americans naively believed them.   It is incumbent upon all citizens to see through the political slogans and seek the truth about each politician’s intentions once in office.

The next months may be filled with confusion, chaos, and the need for discernment.  We can best deal with the multiple changes taking place by learning to think and discern truth for ourselves … by understanding that our present political environment was created by imperfect beings … and by being open to learn and adopt the new concepts characterizing the 5th dimension.

Together, creating cooperatively, Earth humans will manifest a new 5th dimensional galactic society on Earth!  Together, in love and peace, we will rejoice!

CREATING A 5TH DIMENSIONAL SOCIETY

CREATING A 5TH DIMENSIONAL SOCIETY

Nancy B. Detweiler

The following information is not limited to citizens of the United States. All nations are to be transformed. I speak of the U.S., in particular, because I reside there. In Truth, Lightworkers are Citizens of Planet Earth. We work for the planet by serving at home and aboard. Citizens of nations, other than the U.S., can tailor the ideas presented here to the needs of their particular country.

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

Creating a 5th dimensional society will require that all Lightworkers be involved as citizens of a nation. Our task is to build a galactic type planetary society that resonates with the 5th dimensional plane of consciousness. We will accomplish this goal with the support and guidance of our galactic family. Participating in the transformation of all Earth nations is a major means by which we perform the loving service to others that qualifies us, as individuals, to achieve our own ascension.

Knowledge of the basic characteristics of a galactic society provides us guidelines for the renovation and lifting up of planet Earth. A few of the basic characteristics are listed below.

1. All persons are members of a loving community called a “podlet.” A podlet is made up of approximately 64 people usually built around a common life purpose.

2. Parents share the responsibility of raising children. “The goal of child rearing is to foster high self-esteem, personal sovereignty, and mutually shared love and joy in all individuals.”

3. Within the galactic community, Spirit is held in awe. Early childhood education recognizes the presence of Spirit within every child.

4. The individual is nurtured and empowered by society; thereby enhancing the overall social order.

5. “Government is perceived as the fulfillment of divine service. Since every member of the society is sovereign, government’s purpose is simply to mirror the divine will of the Spiritual Hierarchy and to assist each clan [containing many podlets] in successfully completing its most sacred goals.”

6. “The highest form of the observance of God’s Will is divine service. Consequently, galactic society is focused on service, freely offered.”

7. “Each lifetime is perceived to contain a divine purpose.”

8. “The sovereignty of the individual … transcends any perceived rights and refers instead to the individual’s liberty to grow in Spirit according to God’s wishes.”

“Galactic society is constantly reinventing itself.”

(The above information on the galactic society is taken from Sheldan Nidle’s book entitled Your First Contact.)

The Galactic Federation of Light and the Ascended Masters are presently with us. We may communicate with them telepathically at any time. Even if we feel we are not yet telepathic, we can ask for their guidance and assistance. They hear us and respond. We may experience their response as an idea that pops into our minds … a sudden urge to perform a specific action … a book falling off the shelf in front of us. There are myriad ways for them to answer our requests. Just be alert, open, and willing to follow through with the idea presented.

Earth humans have a lot of work to perform—in conjunction with the Galactic Federation of Light and the Ascended Masters—in order to create a galactic culture on this planet. We chose to incarnate, during this transitional period, in order to assist in this momentous endeavor. We are the privileged ones! We are here to witness events that have never—in this solar system’s history—taken place on Earth. We are present because we were awarded this unheard of opportunity to move forward in our spiritual evolution. Let us give thanks … roll up our sleeves … and get busy!

We cannot create a galactic society by using 3rd dimensional techniques that are based on greed, competition, separation, or categories of various kinds created to pit us against each other rather than bring us together in cooperative efforts. We must lay down our prejudices, cease clinging to our old belief systems, and overcome our propensity to resist change. In other words, we must affirm: “I choose to walk on the pathway to ascension. I release all known obstacles to my successfully treading this path and henceforth intend to work within the energies of love for all persons.”

We cannot create a galactic society with our present level of education regarding every facet of our lives. Living on 3rd dimension means we have lived within illusion. Life is not what we think it is. Our planet is not what we think it is. The cosmos in which we live is not what we think it is. Human beings are not what most think they are. In order to create a galactic society, we must be willing to admit our lack of education, our lack of knowledge, and most of all, our lack of wisdom is how to create a culture that allows every individual to blossom into all that we are.

Thus, the prerequisite for creating a galactic society is that we lift our consciousness from 3rd to 5th dimension. As Einstein said, “No problem can be solved at the level at which it exists.” Instead, we must tap into our Higher Mind, intuitive powers, and creative capacity.

We must covenant with one another, the Galactic Federation of Light, and the Ascended Masters, to be willing, diligent students of the wisdom that has been hidden from Earth humans for eons of time. We must re-write many books; re-organize our governmental systems; crack open our frozen religious doctrines and enable them to be permeated with Universal Truth; re-create our educational systems to include a focus on the mind, body, and spirit of every child; and develop peaceful, loving ways to live together as a planetary family committed to fulfilling God’s divine plan on Earth.

America has a unique destiny that is vastly different from the country we know today. As the 3rd dimensional America crumbles, the divine plan for this nation is simultaneously unfolding.

“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)

So Where Are We Now and Where Do We Go from Here?

2011 January 29

Steve Beckow

www.stevebeckow.com

Let’s look at the situation we’re in at the moment – from our vantage point, from that of the Obama Administration, and from that of the protesters on the ground in Egypt, Yemen, and elsewhere, etc.

From our vantage point, we know that the energies being beamed to Earth are raising our sense of well-being and our desire to right situations of injustice and exploitation that have existed on Earth since time out of mind. Of the increasing light and people’s reactions to it, SaLuSa said in November of 2010:

“You are ever moving onwards, and your goal is well in sight as the Light lifts you up. This month is one that promises a surge of energy that will yet again power the Light Grids upon Earth. Gradually it is affecting each soul upon Earth and raising their level of consciousness. Even those that have hardly awakened to their true selves are feeling a stirring inside. They know not what is happening, but feel the air of expectancy and sense that changes are occurring. …

“No longer will people be able to gamble with the lives and property of others, and responsibility and caring will be foremost. The Light is now so powerful it is bringing people together, with a new resolution to live in love and peace. That aim will be fulfilled before Ascension, and expanded to bring harmony and balance into each person’s life. It is almost impossible to describe the feeling that will abound in the New Age, and to be a free soul totally released from all cares and worries.” (1)

SaLuSa confirms that the growing unrest in the world is a result of this increase of light:

“In most countries you are learning of unrest, and it is because of the awakening consciousness of the people. You no longer desire to be at the mercy of those who dictate how your lives are led.” (2)

“The mood of the people is moving towards achieving true democracy, and you will find there is some degree of unrest in many countries.

“The energy that is being created is having the desired effect, and changes for the better will come into being. Apart from this the plan for radical and far-reaching changes proceeds at a pace, as time continues to speed up. Together they will deliver your release from the clutches of the dark forces.” (3)

The people of Earth are awakening to their right to something different, something better, and demonstrations and riots are the result, SaLuSa says:

“Demonstrations and riots are becoming more frequent, as people reject a return to the past. They are awakening to the potential that exists to make a clean start, and have no desire to accept any form of compromise. Before matters can get out of hand, certain events that are near to happening will help calm matters.” (4)

The greatest likelihood is that disclosure is at least one of the events that SaLuSa is referring to.

We know – but few others do – that millions of galactic warriors, engineers, diplomats, healers, teachers, etc., are here to prepare and  guide us to the experience of Ascension which we expect in less than two years time. As SaluSa told us in 2008:

“Do not worry about the size of the problems, as we have more than adequate resources to handle them. Bear in mind we have millions of ships and personnel just waiting to move into action. Each know their function and responsibilities in restoring the Earth, and taking Mankind into the New Age with all of its advanced technology, and marvelous benefits for everyone.” (5)

We expect these visitors to reveal themselves in under two months from now – that is, by the end of the first quarter of this year, as SaLuSa acknowledged on Dec. 29, 2010: “In one way or another we will expect disclosure to become worldwide within the first quarter of this coming year.” (6)

We know that the rising light energies are enervating the dark forces who have controlled this planet and that the Light forces, according to SaLuSa, have recently been given the authorization to remove some of the leaders of the dark and to interfere with their operations.

“As our authority has been extended beyond our original remit, we now take more direct action to stop the black operations aimed at you or other countries. We echo your sentiments that “enough is enough” and it is now the turn of the Light to direct the path of the people on Earth. Such a lot of work has already gone into paving the way to the final years of this cycle, to ensure it is a smooth and successful journey. You of course have played a major part in achieving such an accomplishment, and you have helped create the grid of Light that now encircles the Earth.” (7)

We know from Hatonn other new steps the galactics are taking, but others don’t know them.

“We have been given leave by God to use stronger methods wherever necessary to dismantle the Illuminati’s remaining power bases. This does NOT mean killing anyone – God never sanctions killing, nor would we ever want to do that! For quite some time we have been permitted to override the dark ones’ free will by blocking their powerful weaponry when they attempt more events like “9/11,” and we have done that on numerous occasions.

“Now we also can foil their efforts to create major disruptions by blocking their communication systems and transportation modes and by diverting their intelligence couriers. We also have God’s permission to temporarily relocate a few key individuals to areas where they can do no mischief whatsoever. This is done somewhat like the cloaking of our ships in an invisible force field, which makes the disappearance baffling to those individuals’ co-workers too. So, even though you won’t see evidence of our new allowances, you know that now we’re taking even longer strides to help you rid your world of dark deeds.” (8)

More recently Hatonn has shared more on the subject:

“Some of our colleagues on the planet have made their presence known undeniably because they appeared in their real forms. They are meeting with powerful individuals, including some who operate out of public view, to inform them about our on- and off-planet network, and rats are starting to abandon the ship around the world. You won’t hear about that or the mopping up that’s underway.

“Don’t interpret this as our taking control! Our colleagues among you are working with Obama and others with influence to dislodge the Illuminati’s remaining strongholds and establish groundwork for wide-scale reforms.” (9)

Furthermore, we know that the Light forces will be victorious, which few other people on the planet know. According to SaLuSa:

“Be assured the Light and its supporters will be victorious, and the dark Ones will be defeated not by force or military power, but by the power of Love and Light. It may sound unlikely when you look back at history but you are now in a totally different era, when outside forces with the backing of the Brotherhood of Light are directing the outcome of activities on Earth. Mother Earth also plays a part and is desirous of working with us as her own cleansing takes place.

“So, Dear Ones, whatever happens that is not in accord with the Ascension process, have no fears, as it will not affect the outcome one iota. As you sometimes learn, many countries now are going through self-analysis as they realize the old paradigm no longer works. Those who wish to keep the status quo are fast becoming a minority and their influence will not interfere with the program of changes about to commence.” (10)

At the same time, Hatonn has told us that the next few months will be chaotic and we can see that they are.

“It’s a matter of all that must be accomplished within a comparatively short time and the dark resistance has to be dismantled before that can happen.  We’ve been telling you that for some time to prepare you for the massive changes coming. The next several months will be quite a ride — stay in the light and you’ll navigate the rough waters in good stead.” (11)

Turning from what we know, let’s look at what the Obama Administration knows. According to Hatonn, President Obama knows about the galactics and is a strong supporter of disclosure but is surrounded by squeamish colleagues and opponents.

“It’s just as well that no decisions are being made without Obama’s involvement. He strongly favors extensive and speedy disclosure and most of your other principal participants are being squeamish about both. We can suggest and recommend but not impose our judgment upon your representatives, much less take any action because it can be considered arbitrary at best or unilateral at worst. So we are being patient. That’s the only thing we can do until either your representatives reach agreement on all the important issues pertaining to the TV program or God in His wisdom decides what shall be done and when.” (12)

Hatonn tells us that the President was recently made aware that the galactics guarantee his own safety and that of his family and that he now knows of the plan for Ascension and its schedule. Hatonn also tells us that the President is in contact with “the Orient,” which must mean at least the Chinese and possibly Japan as well, coordinating efforts to take down the dark.

“Obama now knows we have him covered and he can proceed without fear for his family’s safety and his own. Media report what they are told, of course, but the truth is, now that he knows Earth’s ascension timetable, he’s negotiating with powers that be either personally or via safe communication channels to shut down Illuminati strongholds in his country, Europe and the Orient.” (13)

We have a sense that the Chinese leadership must also be in contact with the galactics because the leadership has made a radical turn in its policies and appears friendly to disclosure, solicitous of its own population’s well-being and cooperative toward the West. (14) It has dropped its aggressive stance towards Taiwan and has done nothing in response to various aggressive moves towards containment by the West.

We also believe that for at least three, perhaps four years, the Chinese have had the power to render the American war machine useless. All motherboards supplied to American military hardware (and most motherboards in that hardware have been supplied by the Chinese) have trojans in them that can be used to render the equipment inoperative. (15)

Moreover, the Chinese have shown that they have the ability to take over American planes, like that which flew Vice-President Cheney home from Australia, and cause them to land. They also have the ability to take over American military computers like those at the Cheyenne command and control facility. It is suspected that they caused the B-52 carrying nuclear weapons to the Middle East to land. It may also be that the galactics have helped them in all these efforts; we don’t know about that.

We know that the Chinese have carrier-busting Russian missiles and need no longer be afraid of American carrier groups. And yet the Chinese have not acted on their demonstrated military superiority and recently SaLuSa congratulated and praised them:

“Notice how the Chinese leaders are making concessions to the West, and that they are using their power to prevent the Illuminati from making further footholds in the East. They are a part of a growing movement to stabilise the world, and root out the influences that have tried to lead you into another war scenario.” (16)

The recent visit of Hu Jintao to Washington was a stunning display of cooperation between Presidents Obama and Hu and went beyond mere diplomacy. Hu admitted that China had more work to do on human rights and allowed President Obama to invite him to dialogue with the Dalai Lama without storming out of the room. (17) In a setting in which saving face is usually a large consideration, these are great steps forward and cannot be explained without assuming that China is effectively working with the galactics.

So at least the leaders of the two superpowers – China and the United States – can be assumed to be working with the space fleet. Matthew Ward told us back in 2008 that Vladimir Putin has been falsely portrayed in the western press and is also in fact working to free Russia from the Illuminati’s grip:

“Be aware that mainstream ‘news’ in the United States is falsely portraying some leaders as posing a danger to democracy or destabilizing their nations, whereas they are light beings distancing their countries from the Illuminati’s empire-building, which in large part has grown through two centuries or more of the US government’s covert intrusion into other countries’ affairs. Foremost among these leaders vilified by the Bush administration is Vladimir Putin.” (18)

We are aware as well that the Russians have had numerous opportunities to take advantage of the West and have not. These include their successful repulsion of America from Georgia and the opportunity their support for Iran has provided to arm and encourage Iran to make more mischief than it already has. American speculators even caused the rouble to collapse, but, through all of this, Russia has shown restraint in its dealings with the West, leading me to believe that they too are cooperating with the galactics.

We need to realize that, since perhaps 1962, Russia has had the means to totally defeat the West militarily and has not used it. At least since that year, according to Tom Bearden, Russia has had scalar weaponry that would allow them to overcome the United States militarily. At one point Russia was pushing nuclear disarmament, which would have meant that America would give up nuclear arms, leaving Russia alone with devastating scalar weapons with which to defeat the West. (19)

It is known that the Russians have tested these weapons on British airplanes and shown their devastating effect and it is suspected that they have used them on occasion to control the weather. But again their use has been nowhere near the devastation caused by the American cabal in many places in the world through the use of HAARP and scalar weapons. Compared to the record of the American shadow state, the Russians have shown restraint.

But none of this is known to the crowds on the ground in Egypt, Tunisia, and Yemen and little or none of it is known to the vast majority of Americans, British, or other nations. The crowds in North Africa and the Middle East who are rousing themselves from their slumber and resisting their undemocratic governments are responding to the rising energies but without knowing it.

If they are responding, I consider it reasonable to expect that others will as well. And it becomes a guessing game to predict who those others may be. SaLuSa tells us that we can expect dissent to spread like dominoes:

“Like you we wait and hold our breath, knowing that the old system is creaking at the joints and cannot hold together much longer. We can see the domino effect taking place once the first part falls.  Once it commences we can see quite clearly that there will be no shortage of people coming forward to support the Light.

“You are spread across the globe, and your persistence in pushing for change is about to pay off. Clearly it cannot all happen at once, and some will by the nature of what is involved take many months to complete. The important thing is that you the people see the beginning of real action, and know that it cannot be interfered with. For our part we are involved because you have so often pleaded for help, and we have been given the necessary authority to do so.” (20)

We heard a Tanzanian newspaper say that their suffering was not much different from a Tunisian’s and that dissent could arise there too:

“The suffering of an ordinary Tanzanian is not very different from that of a Tunisian. Maybe they are only different from us because they are white and we are black, and maybe their ‘boiling point’ is different from ours, but the reality on the ground is that we are all boiling in the same pot. (21)

I think we can expect that a lot of people in our world are having the same thoughts.

We know from Kryon that the fall of one dictator will not be followed by the rise of another – not any longer:

“History will not repeat itself. You have moved off of the groove where those things take place in that fashion. Dictators will not [beget] new dictators. Hunger and famine will not [beget] new hunger and famine. There is a change at hand, and history will stop repeating itself. It’s a new energy, if you’ve noticed.” (22)

So here we are in a world that’s awakening and arising from its slumber, but not knowing that it was asleep or what’s causing it to awaken or what it’s awakening to. We know what these factors are and yet there’s no one we can turn to who probably would believe us yet and so we watch the process without knowing what to do to assist or declare it.

The only way we can contribute seems to be by encouraging that process to continue and expand, being a voice for peaceful change, and remaining calm ourselves.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
