Where has all the love gone?

Friday, February 15th, 2008

Q. Masters, where has all the love in the world gone? As a child I remember feeling loved by everyone, even when I was being bratty. Now it seems all I see are disgruntled people who glare—if they look at you at all. Throughout the world, man’s inhumanity to his fellow man has reached monumental proportions with people indiscriminately killing their neighbors, and sometimes their own families. Am I the only person who feels this way? What can I do to return to that comforting love?

A. Love is everywhere; you just have to allow yourself to see and feel it. As a child you lived in the moment in your own world, blocking out negativity, so that it was easy to receive and feel the love. As you got older you became concerned with the world around you as you related to those within it. You have identified with titles you have earned: wife, mother, businesswoman, church supporter, and so on. With each one of these identities came an individualized set of responsibilities that you assumed. You are barely able to peek over the top of all your self- accepted requirements. They are barricades that prevent you from feeling the love outside of you.

What catches your attention now are all the sensational headlines relating to atrocities throughout the world. Your reaction to all this negativity is to pull your head into your shell and peer skeptically at your surroundings. Those around you feel the fear and magnify it so that it reinforces your own feelings of the lack of love.

There are only two emotions in your world: love and fear. They are polar opposites, and one cannot exist in the presence of the other. Anything that you do not love, you fear in one form or another, be it hate, jealousy, revenge, or plain mind-numbing fear. Many, many souls come down to planet Earth to experience the battle between love and fear as a life lesson, so you are definitely not alone.

To return to that feeling of love you must let go of the fear. You must examine in your life anything that is not love and see what lesson it is trying to teach you, so that you may learn it, and move back to love. Inside each human shell is a magnificent, all-loving soul who gets buried in life lessons. Dig yours out and relish the unconditional love of the universe.

Listen to the music

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Welcome, fellow souls. We recognize that a lot of you are missing out on one of the ways that you can listen to us and connect to your soul. A vibrational means that we use to communicate with each other and to share in the unconditional love translates on your planet into what you call music. We can see a ton of blank stares right now. We are not being facetious.

Can you truly say that you have never been moved to tears, fear, or elation by the sound of music? Have you ever wondered why movies have an audio soundtrack embedded in them? Think of that music the next time you see a love story, a drama, or a horror film. The music talks to you vibrationally, or subliminally gets you “in the mood,” as they say.

To start to hear us, practice by listening to nature. The sound of the wind and rain, the birds, the rustle of leaves, the call of an animal, all tell their unique stories to you. When you can hear the wind, listen to the music of our vibrational voices.

We speak in love, light, and laughter.

The Masters of the Spirit World

Star struck

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

Q. Masters, I have a friend who is completely obsessed with a movie star. Her entire room is like a shrine to this person. She insists on trying to purchase the same type of clothing. She wears the same hair style, and mimics her mannerisms. This is beginning to drive me crazy, and it is coming between us because I refuse to say that this person is the most fantastic being on the planet. What can I do to maintain our friendship and bring my friend back to reality?

A. First, you must realize that your friend’s reality is in being within the obsession that controls her. She has the freedom of choice to live within that reality, if she so chooses, and you will find it difficult to replace it until she wants to let it go.

Her obsession grew out of a lack of self-esteem and a desire to feel important. Her parents are always telling her that she is a nothing and never will be anything. This is her way of running away from her current existence. Within this obsession, she has the sense that, in fact, she is the star and is admired by thousands of people.

At this point she is just playing a role—rather like being in a continually running drama. Except for your suffering friendship, this action has not had a negative effect upon her college work nor her job.

She needs to have her self confidence restored. Compliment her on the things that she accomplishes that have nothing to do with her hero. Let her see that she is successful in her own life. Start with the fact that she is a great student, very well liked, and accomplished at her job as well.

Suggest that it might be beneficial for her to talk out her obsession with one of the school counselors, or her minister. You can’t make her change, but you can be there to help her find her way, if you choose.
