Creating reality

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters – Please help – I am just so sad all the time. Instead of improving my attitudes and abilities, I feel I am regressing. I am worried about my son who, like me, seems unmotivated and generally unhealthy. I am fearful of so many things. I’ve had a terrible chronic condition for almost half my life and now I feel like I’ve been ‘beaten up by life’. I want so much to get better and to care about myself again. I want to not be so scared. Most of all, I want to feel alive and pain free. Your advice would be sincerely appreciated. ~Darlene, Canada

ANSWER: The choice of mood you reside in is completely up to you. Living in negativity will never allow you the opportunity to see happiness. Fear is an indication of life lessons that you chose to experience but have not yet dealt with. You have started to fear that the fear is growing, and it is, because you are feeding it with negative intentions and acceptance.

Only you can care about yourself, but not while you label yourself as defective, unhealthy, and unmotivated. Who else is around to motivate you? No one unless you turn all your power over to someone and then do exactly as they say. But that leaves you a thoughtless slave who can’t learn anything.

To change your life, you must accept and believe that you can change your life. You won’t be able to do it all at once because you have too many belief systems telling you negative things about yourself. You have to look at each one, decide what you want and can do about it, and then do it. Thinking, dreaming, analyzing won’t do any good unless you take the initiative to move forward.

Start with your biggest fears. Take a look at what they really represent. Ask yourself how you think about those fears and why you think what you do. You will find the answers all have to do with a rut you sank into and don’t have the energy to climb out. Well, just put one foot in front of the other and move ahead. You must begin moving your body so that your systems will come back on line.

Your son is mimicking what he is seeing you do. Following your example, he will sink deeper than you can even imagine unless he sees you reversing your life. Work for both you and him.

Beliefs on suicide

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters why is suicide so stigmatized? I feel that it is a choice like any other and that the feeling that it is something bad has been built culturally. I feel it’s just a way to go home early. ~Cristhiane, Brazil

ANSWER: Suicide is stigmatized because it diminishes the population. Society wants to encourage a healthy, productive mass of people who are available to take care of all the needs of others. Suicide is also a choice made by some people when they do not want to be controlled by others. If a person thinks they can end their worries and difficulties by ending their own life, then there is no permanence to the control one has over another.

The first edicts against suicide came from land owners and religious organizations. No one could read or write, so they learned everything through their churches and their bosses. These owners and controllers wanted to have absolute power over the behavior of those under them.

The only life solution they wanted the populace to see was the promise of salvation made to the peasants if they worked hard, did as they were told, and clung to the belief in going to heaven. Suicide sent them to hell, they were told (and also lost land owners a good working hand and churches a willing congregant).

To some it was merely a property issue: alive, they owned you; dead, they lost your services. So, suicide became outlawed. Society blamed the one who wished to end their own life and gave the family the responsibility to make sure none of their members took the easy way out. By promising a heavenly reward, the churches wanted to be the ultimate salvation for the wretched lives people were leading. The punishment for suicide was eternal damnation.

When you remove the influence of the rest of the society sharing this lifetime with you, you have the only real answer. You have freedom of choice to come and go as your soul desires. In the spiritual sense, nothing is considered to be right or wrong.

About karma

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters I notice how there are still limiting religious beliefs in me, socially, culturally, and so on. It seems that I have rare glimpses of feeling like a free soul from the source. It is very difficult to be in a dual reality. About Karma, it would be a law of this planet that would bring us back to be born here on Earth to solve or Karma would be a kind of awareness of what we did “wrong” with someone or something and would leave us guilty to the point of returning here to Earth and try to dissolve this energy? ~Sérgio, BRASIL

ANSWER: It is your belief system that causes you to ask about karma since it is the negative controlling factor in many societal and religious beliefs. The reality in which a human soul spends their time on Earth is created by what they accept as the beliefs they wish to follow.

Belief systems are first established unconsciously by those training you about living. They are your parents, teachers, religious icons, and society in general. You start believing the rules those around you think are mandatory. You don’t even think about whether they apply to you as you become one of the sheep being directed through life.

What most humans do not recognize is the fact that they can change their beliefs at any time. Just because the world may say the sky is pink, you don’t have to accept that if you “know” it is blue. Constantly examine why you behave the way you do. Is it because you choose to do something in a particular way or because the “world” does things that way and you think you have no choice?

Karma is a concept, a belief system, a negativity found only on Earth within its duality. When you leave the duality, there can be no karma because it is a negative punishment belief. You are punished for something you have done while within the negativity of the duality.

Guilt is a life lesson. If you have studied it, by experiencing it, you do not have to relive it in another life unless you wish to explore more complex issues of guilt. A human incarnation is undertaken for the benefit of an individual soul. What happens in an interaction with another soul does not enforce a duty upon the acting soul. You don’t owe them anything because they are just doing their thing like you are. You may never share a human existence with that soul again.

All the choices about a subsequent life are decided by the soul. They have no obligation to revisit anything they have done before or to continue on with a lesson they have not understood. Karma does not exist for a soul unless they choose to create a required response to something they have done in the past.

Cut loose from the beliefs that do not assist you with your desired lessons. Seek to live in positive, loving energy. If you find yourself doing something and don’t know why, stop it and reconsider the reason. You always have choices.
