With God – 2000 Years Ago and Today

Photo from markbordeaux.comThe behaviors that are demonstrated today were seen 2000 years ago, as well. The struggle for power meant that there were many in authority who rejected Christ’s teachings so that they could gain in material power. This penchant will increase now, in our days today, and for awhile yet, which I’ve spoken of, because this method of madness has worked in the past, and is believed to be a tactic which will work, again.

Some people’s efforts to attack and destroy their opponents will become louder and louder, because they are coming to the end of their time – not time as in their own lives, but time as in the time of mankind to begin a new age. The collective voices will be the loudest – screaming at the end.  This is a pattern for many of us when we don’t want to give up something that has been what we want.

There are many who seek to war – and war these will do – in whatever arena possible – including governments, today’s social media, all public venues – ever speaking to whomever will listen – to *try* to gain more numbers following them. But, no amount of numbers will change the evolution of mankind being brought about.

As odd as this may sound, the increase of the Light hinders the effort to stay deep in darkness by removing the availability of that which leads to darkness. Put another way, that which leads to darkness is kept from being fed and prevented from being allowed, therefore the impact of the Light has ever greater influence on environs. It is the principle of the raising of vibrations. That which continues to raise vibrations prevents that which would lower vibrations, albeit this transformation is done “one hair at a time.”

We are in the times of which Christ mentioned “Even the Elect (not ‘the elected’) can find themselves being misled.” “It is ever a time to be alert – to not go back to sleep – to practice one’s true spiritual practice – not for vengeance and destruction of one’s hated enemies, but for the fulfillment within our own hearts of the Fruits of God’s Spirit, which will come upon us and come from within us … if we keep on keeping on, drawing from the Infinite Spirit within ourselves for the purpose of bringing forth the best parts of what it means to be a member of this human family and children of One God.

Our vigilance comes from our efforts to be honest with ourselves with doing the best we can each day, and with what we best hold is honest, rather than what is said by anyone, anywhere, at any time, for a self-only agenda. Our effort is for expressing what is deep within us at the core of our spirit which is one with the Infinite Love and Compassion that is Christ knocking at the door to our hearts. Our call is to give to “the poor” that which God has placed within the essence of our souls – our kindness to those who are poor of kindness working to deny it to others, our compassion to those who express little compassion, if any, except to those of their own beliefs, our understanding to those who seek to understand no one but their own kind, to listen to those who hear no one, to forgive those who forgive no one, to be merciful to those who show no mercy.

Yet, the astonishing question is – How in the world can we even begin do this or offer these qualities to people who demonstrate little of these qualities ?!  I will say first that of ourselves we *cannot* do these things.  Alone – there is no way.  We cannot stand alone and think we can do any of these things – alone.  But, as we’ve heard over and over, and can benefit from hearing over and over and over again, reminding us everyday – with God, “all things are possible”. In fact, only with God are these things possible.  But, not just in our heads – but in our hearts – the place of Love, where God lives as Love.

Only with God, can we give mercy to those poor in mercy. Only with God, can we be kind to those who share no kindness with another. With God, we can and do bring forth from within us the Fruits of the Spirit of which Christ said, “It is from their demonstration of these Fruits that you will know my true followers.” Only with God, can we demonstrate the deepest kindness, the most important patience, the understanding, the mercy, the forgiveness, the compassion, the brother/sisterhood of humanity, and more.

…only with God – when we pray, “Lord, teach me the truth.”  “God, make me into the good soil.” “God, help me be honest with myself.” “God, teach me the wisdom and discernment I need, so that I may not mislead my own self down a mistaken road because of my own hatred or bitterness that I may still be trying to change within myself.” “Lord, help me not use my own pain and my own suffering as the weapon that inflicts even more suffering onto yet another person.”

Many look out from our own perspectives and see the world with great amounts of turmoil, selfishness, greed, suffering and violent hatred happening. But, again, with God – we will also be able to see the healing that comes from an individual’s prayer for family, friend, or a stranger, who is suffering. With God, we can find it within ourselves to give the gift of compassion to one other person whose suffering we cannot fathom. With God, we can listen to another person’s stories of their life and pain, and understand that their level of suffering can be much greater than anything we’ve experienced in our life, even if we don’t see theirs.

Only with God, can our hearts and minds be lifted up to greater heights of compassion, love, and unity. With God – is the path where we can honestly say, “I love you.” With God, is when we can be honest with ourselves and say, “I forgive you.” With God, we can give the healing words, “I’m sorry.”  With God, we can look within and even say, “With God, I love myself, too, and I forgive myself, as well.”

With God, we can come to realize that what we see happening in the world, is not the view where we will see God’s continued effort to bring peace to each of us.

There are many people in the world who seek conflict and war, because it serves them, but with God, it is ever true that “With God, within us, we will have that peace which – though we begin by thinking it must be lost to the world – will be reawakened in the world through *us*.”

With God, will come the transformation of the world in which we live – from within us expressed outwardly – like artists creating masterpieces – like gardeners growing green life – and from He who put the stars in the skies and set the heavens in motion.

With God, all is possible – including God being visible in the Earth – through the expression of the Fruits of the Spirit from those of us who keep on keeping on our path of – with God – Love.

Politics !

We’re right in the thick of it. And it has become more serious for many people in today’s times than it has been ever before. There is a spiritual factor unseen in the world, which also is having an influence. But, the spiritual factor is not what one might assume right off.

From the Spiritual perspective, everything requires looking “deeper into the waters” to understand the fullness of the circumstances and happenings in the world. If we only see things “as we always see things”, we are looking at the surface of circumstances. Rarely does the surface give any clues to what is in the depths where the spiritual forces and influences reside.

To begin with, anyone who has listened to my Nov. 2016 election reading which I’ve made available free of charge, here on the blogsite, knows that, contrary to popular beliefs and feelings right or left, “Things are happening the way they’re supposed to happen.”

How can I say this? I say this in this same way that Christ said to Pontuis Pilate as Christ stood waiting for his fate, “You have authority over me, because God gave it to you.”

This is true today just as much as 2000 years ago. The challenge then put to Pontius Pilate as it is put to all of us given authority or power of any kind – “Now, what are you going to do with this authority?”

All souls are given their turn to pursue that which they believe is their opportunity. This means that God holds no soul as more or less deserving to have a chance to pursue Earthly positions of authority or power. Everyone gets their chance – not all in the same lifetime – but, whether in a past life, the present or a future life, at some point, our turn comes up.

Because we tend to see the quality of work others do, and in turn, think we can do a better job, we put it in our soul to pursue “doing that better job”. Whether we’ve built a spiritual foundation within our hearts determines how we do in our turn.  By spiritual foundation, I mean living from that place which can never be touched by politics – the place from within us in which loving kindness, compassion, patience, forgiveness, mercy, understanding, brotherhood, gentleness, honesty, charity, and other fruits of the spirit come.

This spiritual foundation is based on Unselfishness at the deepest core within our very soul – the part of our soul that stands in front of the face of God and says whether we’re ready or not to move forward. We can choose to speak the truth to God of our readiness and desire, and in doing so, speak the truth to ourselves, or we can choose to lie to God and in doing so lie to ourselves.

FYI, God accepts our choice to lie and does not punish us for lying to God or to ourselves. This is because we have the opportunity then to learn from the results of our lying for ourselves. The saying, “God punishes souls by giving them what they want” plays out in this circumstance, although it’s not really punishment and in truth, comes from our own chosen actions.

This is relevant to politics in some obvious ways and some hidden ways. Politics is mostly a 3rd chakra arena – win/lose, fight/flight, control/controlled, and the like. Service for others, however, begins a movement into the 4th chakra. So, there is a potential for blending of the two chakras.

The individual ideals which we hold at the center of our journey into politics can guide us into either focusing on our 4th chakra energy or reverting back into our 3rd chakra energy.

Although politics tends to be viewed as one side against the other side, there are some that view it as trying to find ways to try to bring both sides together. Our ability to step back and observe our self determines which of these two is our self. Is there a middle ground we can meet in?

Some of us hold on to the “us vs. them” paradigm all the way through, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Bible tells us, “Agree with thine adversary quickly.” This is because of the principles of perception – that we only know our own experiences – having only walked in our own shoes 24/7, 365 days a year for our entire life. We’ve never experienced living anyone else’s life.

This is why that “other” person’s experiences which has led them to develop their own particular paradigm, are relevant and worthy of being considered, and in turn, be recognized as having been learned – FOR THEM – with they having walked in their own shoes all their life. This is how others can “be right” and yet be 180 degrees opposite of our own “being right”.

We gain a “knowing” of our experiences and learning by walking in our own shoes. The other person gains a “knowing” of their experiences and learning by walking in their own shoes. It is the way of things. The heads side of the coin will never be the tail side of the coin and vice versa. But, yet, there is a way to bring both sides of the coin together.

All souls are valid in our path of learning. All of our paths are different and will teach us many different things. We value what we’ve learned more than what we haven’t yet learned, because we “know” it, and in the “knowing” of it, also know it is worthwhile to have learned it.

Christ’s words, “What does it benefit us to gain all we want if we lose our soul in the process?” are relevant in politics. There is a lot of “wanting” and “gain” and “us vs. them” in politics. The challenge is to pursue what we seek, but learn how to stay in the 4th chakra with regards to what we pursue, and hold on to that which is the most important factor involved in this arena – that quality and energy held within the 4th chakra.

As voters rather than someone running for office, our unselfish service can come in the form of praying for others, including our elected officials, or letting go of the “us vs. them” paradigm, while holding on to the awareness that our brotherhood/sisterhood/human-hood is more important than what we seek to gain in the 3rd chakra arena of politics. When we move into the 4th chakra, we move into an arena of service. We can then recognize that with this level of service, everybody can win, because we’re “all in this world together”. In turn, being aware that each opposing “side” holds only 1 part of the whole, and is not the whole by itself.

We have a lot to learn being human. Having walked in our own shoes in life, we have gained an understanding, and can share what we’ve gained, but there are so many other souls’ shoes we haven’t walked in, and can only gain that understanding when we listen to others share the stories of their walking in their own shoes.

PS.  Let there be no mistake – this takes a lot of work – to return ourselves to our spiritual center over and over, each time we stumble and close off our 4th chakra to those “others”.  But, each time we work to stay on or return to our spiritual path – to stay open to all life, we can feel our own return to our path and understand the importance of our efforts.  It is these efforts which will change the world far beyond anything politics can ever offer.

The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 2 of 2

It’s not by violence. It’s not by hatred. It’s not by furthering selfish-interests. It’s not through yelling or adding to conflict. It’s not by condemning, judging, or criticizing others. It’s not through self-praise or self-righteousness or the opposite – by beating ourselves up or being unforgiving or unmerciful to ourselves.

It’s not through being a member of any particular nation, government or religion. It’s not by putting someone down or oppressing, or even forcing someone. And, it’s not by eliminating people through war or any other means.

We move humanity forward in this Earthly evolution of consciousness through the bringing forth of our patience, kindness, forgiveness, our long-suffering, compassion, understanding, love, mercy, our charity, expressing brotherhood and tolerance, and our meditation and prayer practices.

We move all of humanity forward via unselfishness – for all of humanity – hence why humanity does not move forward except through the Spirit of God being part of the motivating Spirit within people’s hearts and souls. Only through Spiritual efforts of bringing forth the Fruits of the Spirit will humanity as a whole continue to evolve in all ways that humanity can evolve.

This can and will take many lifetimes and many eons according to human time tables, each leading us further down our path. While it may seem a long time – even be our experience of a long time, in the framework of the Infinite Consciousness of God/Love, it is accomplished in a blink of an eye.

Yet, for us, today, it is an act of Infinite Compassion that we can come to realize that we can experience this evolution – which we can also call ‘healing’ – happening every day, through each moment which we contribute/help to bring about for those in need – which is all of us.  We can experience Love.  We can experience mercy.  We can experience joy, compassion, understanding, wisdom and in doing so, slowly become aware that we are experiencing the Consciousness of God – maybe not the “Infinite” part, but rather a part that we can absorb as a human.

As we are present with the current times, even witnessing this current day, the following additional principles can help as we walk the road we’re on.

– As difficult as it is to understand why this is – we are not here on the planet to save the Earth.  We are here on the planet, to help each other remember and reawaken to our spiritual nature and reality.  We can only do this by demonstrating the fruits of our spiritual reality within human realms and arenas – each aspect formed from love – oneness, unity, brotherhood, … forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect … faith, trust, knowing oneself, … Loving God above all else, and loving our neighbor as our self.  And yes, we can extend these fruits to the Earth, as well.

– Learn the lesson of “Asking for help”.  We’re not in this life to go through life alone or take care of ourselves alone.  We didn’t give birth to ourselves. We didn’t change our own diapers or feed ourselves at 1 year old, or clothe ourselves at 2 years old or determine to go to school at 5 or 6, or teach our selves math or reading or all about how to live our life.  As adults, we are so intertwined with the work of other people, that we can never honestly say that we’re self-sufficient since we didn’t build our own vehicles, build our own roads, build our own telephones, etc and etc. We live relying on the work and effort of the billions of people around the whole planet. All equipment and supplies reach us via the work of ourselves and other people. Even the most extreme living in the woods away from civilization, we are not the sole person influencing our staying alive.

God designed us to “need one another.” Learn the lesson of “Asking for help” – the demonstration of “our needing each another”.

– It is helpful if one of our prayers is always, “Lord, teach me the truth.

– Christ’s words to Peter are also for us – “You don’t concern yourself about that other person or the path they walk.  They are My concern.  You follow me.”  Forgiveness is letting go of insisting the other one learn and grow first – before we ever choose to learn and grow. The higher energy comes to heal the low energy when we let go of our **requiring** or **demanding** someone else change instead of ourselves in life or in that moment.  God has already willed that no soul shall perish, and this means all souls will be guided to re-find their healing path – but this is in God’s times and God’s ways, and not in human time frames or human-understood ways.

– During this time, we may be called upon to help others in ways we haven’t been helping before, or at a certain level of helping in which we haven’t gone before.  In the last days of Jesus, before His death, He worked to take full advantage of every moment left.  He sought to help as much as He could, and as many people as He could in the few days/weeks He had left.  Time was short, but so many sought His help, still.  His heart was dedicated to helping as many as He could, in all ways which the Father directed Him.

We are called also, now, especially in the days ahead, to help in ways which could stretch us to step up to another level.  It is for each of us to decide for ourselves, but we also, can ask God, “Here am I, Lord.  I’m ready. How can I help?”  Each of us is unique, and our own uniqueness brings us to be able to help in ways only we could help, because of our uniqueness.  The place we find ourselves, the skills we have, the feelings in our own heart – these are where God brings us — so that we can help in the place we find ourselves with the skills we have and the feelings in our heart.  “How can I, being the unique me, help in my unique way?”

– If we are seeing darkness manifest, feeling in despair or discouraged, then also look for the Light.  We are not abandoned, because even on the worst stormy days and nights, the sun/Son is still active above all, and is still actively continuing to work to break through clouds of darkness.  It is for us to shine our Light from our underside of the storms, also.

– God does not have all of us experience the same difficulties or life circumstances.  Even in the times ahead, there will be different difficulties and circumstances for different people.  Some people will go through great pain and suffering.  Some will go through minor difficulties.  Some will not go through problems at all.  This is also under God’s guidance, like the blind man Christ healed, saying, “This man was born blind for the Glory of God.”  His blindness was not from his own karma.  And Christ did not leave him in blindness.  Rather, with his asking, Christ healed him so others could believe in the healing which they witnessed happen that day, and in turn, then believe God is available to all who call upon Him in times of need.  God calls upon each of us to be someone whom God can work through for someone’s help – with each of us being on a different experiential path to help the different ways that are needed.

– We let the prayer, “Lord, help me be honest with myself.” be with us over and over through the day. We let it be a prayer that is in our hearts sincerely regardless of our judgment of it. Let the truth that it brings, come up from within, without judging what comes up within us to be accurate or worthy, or realistic. God is all things – even the ‘human-impossible’. God is the “All Possible”, the “Infinite Possible” and the limitless Imaginative Possible”, even while we don’t understand how this possibly could be.

– It is when we stand eye-to-eye, shoulder-to-shoulder, as equals, that we are united brothers and sisters, and not when we place ourselves above or below someone else.  Every one of us is an average, regular and normal spirit entity inside a physical body (of various species.)

“There is no realm in which God’s Complete Consciousness is not present.  We swim inside, breathe inside, live inside the Infinite Consciousness of God, and all the while, with God’s complete and Infinite Awareness fully present – even of our individual self and all we go through.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

“God, thank you for your presence, guidance, help in my life, and love, even when I’m not aware of it.”

 

The Suffering We’re Seeing

Currently in this country, while government officials fight back and forth, while political pundits scream at each other, while Americans yell obscenities at one another across the Internet, social media and in each others presence, we see the suffering again which so many of us have seen before.  The treatment of those different from us, the treatment of those who seek our help, the treatment of those we see as “not us” is happening again, as it has before in the Earth.  This is a very real battle, but not of guns, swords and other weapons – rather a battle of what level of character and consciousness we will choose to determine how we treat one another.

It can be called government policy.  Government policy has done this throughout human history.  But, look deeper into the consciousness of each soul that lives in the Earth.  This isn’t just a “policy” of immigration, although this time it is manifesting as that issue in the current news. There is another perspective which this demonstrates.

It is many things manifesting at once.  Although it would be vehemently denied on the surface, it is ALSO a demonstration of an attitude of inequality – us vs them – and “Inferiority of ‘them’ vs the Superiority of ‘us’ “, which many still hold in their souls in the same way that we’ve witnessed in our world today and in our remembered and unremembered history.”

A Part of History Forgotten

From the beginning of souls entrance into this world, there have been some souls who were known as or perceived as angels or higher spiritual beings – who entered into the human path in the Earth – entering both before and during when other species of humans were present. They were not necessarily all Angels of Light which we think of today. Some of these spirits choosing a darker, lower-vibration, non-Love based path, held onto their “awareness of their own higher nature” even though they were on paths of losing the higher connection. Still, as human beings, this awareness of having been at the angel level of consciousness, became unconscious within them as they trapped themselves (like so many of us) through the human reincarnation process.

This unconscious perception became a belief that something innate to themselves makes them greater than others.  With the attitude of superiority still within them, and held onto, they consider themselves better or greater than other souls in the Earth. This attitude can be seen throughout many, many different cultures and many, many historical societies in the evolution of mankind.  I want to add that this quality is not present within them alone, but can be found within all of us to some greater or lesser extent – per our own choosing.

Because the battle of Light and Darkness began before the Earth existed, and continues now during the continued creation of the Physical Universe, this battle has been carried into the realm of the Earth. While the battle between the Light and Darkness has before been a battle among different spirits, we now have a process of reincarnation and karma within the Earth realm, which lawfully structures the evolutionary process of souls and spirits in the Earth.

These principles and laws bring in place the requirements that each soul and spirit must now face our own selves within our own consciousnesses in order to resolve the imbalances which heretofore had shown themselves externally, and which are now to be dealt with internally. We brought into this plane our imbalances and shortcomings (which we had before we entered) that we manifested in the physical Earth realm, and now we must heal these within the physical Earth realm – including by learning the development of the awareness of Oneness with all life, and the equality of all life – instead of the previous belief and manifestation of superiority/inferiority attitudes and actions.

We are at a point in the evolution of consciousness within the Earth whereby this battle is coming to the surface of awareness (although not known under the spiritual terms and conditions I mention here – which generally people would laugh at if they heard it called this).  Because of choices made to serve self alone, which is one cause of the consciousness of darkness, some souls have little within their own character to hinder their effort to mislead themselves and others.  (Some of us have willingly been walking the difficult road, indeed, back to balanced equality and truth.)  Therefore, they foster fear and paranoia beyond what is truthful. Other souls already have been misled to believe that which would be different than what they would otherwise learn from within their own hearts. These are misled to believe that Love would not be the path to take, but rather fear being the path to take.

Continued after the Side Notes …

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

Side Note: these examples in the previous paragraph are also examples of the imbalances yet to be worked out within a person’s own consciousness/soul. Within our own character, we potentially have the desire to hinder the truth due to our own fears and agendas. Within our own character, we potentially have the attitudes of our self being “a better person than that other person”. Within our own character, we potentially have the inclination to not listen to our hearts – the seat of our connection to God, and to not listen to the call of Love which comes from our connection to God.
Side Note: The state of consciousness of fear and paranoia exists in the 3rd Chakra. This is the Chakra of adrenaline and conflict – fight or flight – war – battle – overpowering others – oppressing others – exalting ourselves over others and the like. We can demonstrate the 3rd Chakra states of consciousness blindly or “asleep at the wheel” or instead we can seek to wake up, and to open our eyes, which leads us to learn and gain an understanding on our way to transformation with the 4th Chakra – seeking the lesson of awareness which is teaching us understanding that this is what it is like for human beings – the horror and torment – for humans to struggle within the 3rd Chakra – constant fear (as well as learn other awareness lessons related to the 3rd Chakra.) In this insight leading to transformation, thus we step out of the 3rd Chakra consciousness, work on patience, understanding and compassion, and even feeling long-suffering for those stuck in the 3rd Chakra, and recognize the statement Christ gave us when He said, “Perfect Love casteth out fear.” 1 John 4:18. This statement of Christ’s also shows the path of transformation out of the 3rd Chakra into the 4th.

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

To Continue…

Now, although we are still participating in the battle between the Light and the Dark, we are able to face these battles, not against other people, but within our own selves – within our own consciousnesses, our own attitudes and our own character. It is in this work – on ourselves within ourselves – where we are able to win the victory over our own darkness. And as we do this – change our own character from letting go of acts of darkness to acts of the Light – that the presence of God comes into our physical realm at ever greater levels of influence and healing at every level of the physical realm. It is this ever greater presence of God which brings the higher levels of Light, raising vibrations of all physical realms, including the Earth, and bringing about guidance and insight into steps we can take or make available to bring transformation into our societies, organizations, governments, and the healing and balance of ever more souls who seek healing and balance.

It is ever the process of choosing to open to greater Light within ourselves which helps to eliminate the darkness around us. To manifest this Light then comes the challenges to manifesting of the qualities which the Light has within it – compassion to those who need it and those who have none – understanding to those who ask for it and to those who throw it away – courage to listen to the wisdom and guidance coming from God who lives in our hearts, the 4th Chakra – humility to recognize that God is within every life equally and available to every life equally, and that our own paradigm is always changing, always evolving, and always creating room for more learning and more love – willingness to pray and meditate for the presence of God to increase in this Earth and all physical realms – patience for things which do not come to us on our own personal time table serving our self rather than God’s timetable serving all of us in possibly different ways – letting go of judging others by realizing that we’re also letting go of judging our past selves and possibly our future selves – mercy for those who suffer and are tormented from living in fear like we all have done, as well – and forgiveness for those who ask for it, for those who need it, and for those who reject it – with all 3 of these being our self, as well as others.

We live in a world where love exists and can exist more.  As with the Spirit that is God Consciousness – Love exists when we choose to love. This means that God is only brought forth when we bring forth Love. God is only manifest when we manifest Love. While watching the suffering happening, we are not helpless if we ask God to be within our hearts in order to direct our actions which we can manifest in our world – for the purpose of demonstrating actions based on Love instead of fear.

Saints?

 

 

Christ and Buddha

Years ago, I had a dream. In this dream, I saw a wheel of light with a central hub, many spokes of light reaching outward, and then the outer rim/tire encircling the whole. And I saw Christ. Christ showed me the meaning of these 3 parts. Christ was the central hub, all the different religions were the many spokes, and the outer rim/tire was all the people who believed the various and different religions.  Through the many different spokes and their connection to the hub in different places, the outer rim gained strength and purpose, thus being able to move the whole forward.

I don’t know if Christ is in dreams of others. I’d love to find out. I do know that this dream taught me the relevance and relationship that exists with the different religions and the central Spirit of Love that religions try to teach to the people.

This Spirit which I call Christ, and many others call Christ has taught me that the main question and struggle is not about what name or organized religion we adhere to, but to the Spirit that exists available to all people and which resides in all religions that teach the One God.

Many will continue to war, saying “Our One God is the real One God and your One God is not the real One God.” In effect they’re saying, “Our way of believing is the real way to believe and your way of believing is not the real way to believe.”

I’ve written of this many times trying to say, “It’s not our beliefs, but what we do with them – using them to bring peace or using them to bring war – that matters most”. The dream did not show a  one spoke wheel. What wheel would work with only one spoke? The dream showed many spokes, because the tire spread all the way around – each spoke being that which connects that portion of the whole to the center.

Christ said many times, “I have followers that you don’t know about.” Does anyone think that He can’t or is not capable of being available to someone in another language, in another culture, with another name, under another symbol, in a different paradigm, in a different perspective, under a different image, wearing different clothes, in a different land, appearing as a different physical representation, unknown to “us”? Does anyone think He can’t speak to people in their own culture using their own language and understanding, presenting teachings that have One God of Love as the teachings’ central message, helping them start where they are, supporting who they are as the persons that they already are to take their own next step?

Does anyone think He can’t, in these different ways, give His message , “You’re already all you need to be, to be loved right now” ? Can He then help other religions to come about, carrying on the message – “Love one another” ?  The Bible describes the Pentecost, and says, “Each person understood the message in their own language and culture.”  Who among us thinks God cannot speak to each of us in our own way of understanding?

If anyone is wondering, look at how many religions speak the same message, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you“, or the message, “There is One God and all of us, everywhere are God’s Children.”

As one example, does anyone think it CAN’T be true, that the Christ Spirit and the Buddha Spirit are One and the same? We can know one name and person or we can know the other name and person, or we can know them both as One Spirit, and begin to learn the lessons of the one we choose or choose both, finding that when we learn the lessons of one, we have also been learning the same lessons of the other.

The Sum of Ourselves

As souls living in the Earth, we create circumstances for ourselves and others.

What is not widely understood is that in looking at the sum of all human lives which a soul experiences, and under the umbrella of what is commonly called, “Karma”, when we, through our own freewill, create problem experiences in individual lives and/or in the world as a whole, we are then the ones who are given the divine task of cleaning up those problems.  Of course, this cleaning is done over whatever time or lives are needed, and with as much help as is needed.

Look out at all the people who want to help clean up the planet, or clean up societal issues, or clean up a certain aspect of life – the environment, the government, medical knowledge, law, spirituality, education etc.  They are people like you and I.  This means like us, they feel within their hearts and minds the desire to bring better things into this Earth – to help make the world a better place.

As you might understand where I’m going with this, almost all of the 7.3 billion people who want to help “clean up” this world – make it a better place for all people – are the one’s who helped create these problems from within our past lives.  (Not everyone.)  Like you and I, others have learned from mistakes of past lives, and this learning is now deep within our hearts and souls helping us be inspired, motivated and understanding of the benefits of creating a better world for all life.

Those of us who are ready to do something to help – whenever we are ready of our own freewill to be willing to do something to help – are the ones who enter into the middle of the “problems” in some form, and work at leading new ways into the future. If we led the way in creating the mess, we can find ourselves with opportunities to lead the way in cleaning up the mess.

This process is not punishment.  It is not obligation or penance.  It is a process of healing, forgiveness, mercy and more.  It comes from within our hearts – a new recognition of the opportunity for brotherhood among peoples – a recognition of the benefit and healing that comes with compassion and cooperation, kindness, forgiveness and patience.  This feeling of wanting to contribute to the betterment of humankind comes from the best and greatest part of ourselves.

I’ve had past lives in Atlantis, partially as military personnel. In several lives and in several roles. I went to war, attacked, harmed and killed people. Without choosing further learning on my part, I then experienced lives where I had been attacked, harmed and killed. However, from then a willingness to learn greater understandings of the human experience, that which I learned from human life as a whole, led to a greater understanding of much of the experiences I created for others on the receiving end of what I dished out.

After much of these “learning” lives, I became priests, doctors, Seers and other service roles which have given me opportunity to help heal whom I wounded, help clean up the messes I’ve made, help repair the things I broke, and help bring together that which I took apart.  This greater purpose gave me inspiration and life in the doing.

I’ve been so many different nationalities and races, that my memories of these lives  help me to listen to and feel more understanding of the pain and suffering of others, as well as willingness to work hard at letting go of knee-jerk judgment and condemning of people on a particular side. (I still stumble at times, though.)

I walk in my shoes as a white man this life, but I recognized the other lives still existing within me, and in some I still seek and learn to bring forth life rather than take away life – meaning I still have work to do.

I have past lives as female, so they are within me. I have past lives as other races, other social roles, different religions and different sexual orientations, so those experiences are within me. I’m not those people on the outside anymore, but I am, like every one of us humans, the sum of all my past lives, experiences and learning, even if remembering all these experiences doesn’t come easy or automatic, (as every human knows.)

Why do some people choose to harm if they’ve had past lives? Because we all “remember in our soul” different things. As I’ve written in other articles, the 9-11 hijackers subconsciously remembered being on the receiving end of tremendous Atlantean attacks – with their feelings and thoughts that Atlantis- a great technical power invading everywhere in the world- was wrong to do that to people. The hijackers wanted opposition and revenge. They remembered their hatred even though they didn’t remember their past lives.

A lot of us remember our hatred. A lot of us humans remember feelings of bitterness and desire for vengeance.  We may come up with today’s version of justification, but we are still the sum of all our feelings whether healing or harmful.  We still, of our own freewill, get to choose which feelings we will act upon.

Some of us subconsciously remember love, also. Some of us “remember” lives in which the Master touched our life – directly or through others. Some remember spiritual lessons which they’ve learned, some remember a drive within our hearts motivating us to greater purposes.

It’s not an easy mix when we remember something worthwhile. We can lead ways to better paths, but we need to remember that it was ourselves who helped create those worse paths. When we seek to help bring healing from pain and suffering, we have to watch out for our blaming anyone who represents the person who we were, back when we helped create the pain and suffering. In actuality, most of us, are struggling not with the other person, but rather with who we were in that past life.  We may “remember in our soul” that the “other person” is capable of harm, because we caused harm when we walked in those same shoes.

We are on this path together, meaning all of us are called to help heal all the different aspects of human consciousness that need healing within ourselves, whether we approach this task from one direction or some other direction. As we heal ourselves, we are helping heal the whole of human consciousness – not all in one lifetime, of course, but as Edgar Cayce says, “One hair at a time”.

If this seems daunting, just remember, we have eternity to do this, and as John says, “All you need is Love, dat, da, da, da dahhhhhhh.”  Love is “leading new paths into the future, instead of following the old paths of the past” – leading the new ways of love, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect, and letting go of judgment instead of following the old ways of selfishness, hatred, condemnation, judgment and disregard.

We’re in this world together.  We won’t have the same ideas, beliefs, paths and ways to manifest our hearts and souls, but that’s not the important part.  The important part is that since we have the freewill to choose what motivates us, we can choose to manifest the best healing parts within us, or the worst harming parts within us.

Of the Soul

Love is of the soul. The soul has both masculine and feminine. Both of these are capable of and regularly incarnate into a physical body. AND! because the soul benefits and grows from the enrichment of different experiences, the masculine and feminine can both incarnate into either the same or opposite gender bodies. We have such a diverse potential within this Earth to manifest and experience that we can create opposite gender experiences in order to develop greater understanding of the human experience.

Hence, why we create gay, lesbian and transgender experiences in our world. The diversity of experiences related to these can help souls learn. This doesn’t mean that being gay, lesbian or transgender will be forced upon a soul (unless karmic law is in effect). It means that each is a viable and useful incarnated experience. It also means that the feminine in a male body and the masculine in a female body is an available Earth option, should one wish to experience it.

Love is of the soul. We can experience love in opposite physical bodies than the gender aspect which manifests. Since love is of the soul, it is possible to love beyond the physical – to the soul. Those we’ve loved in a past life, can still be those we love in the current life. Still, freewill is active for both souls in such a reunion, and this does indeed give chance for either joyful or painful reunions as human beings.
