What are my life lessons?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Dear fellow souls, we are frequently hearing the question “How are we supposed to know what life lessons we are here to learn?” We hear it from both young and old, all nationalities, all practicing religious beliefs, and just about everyone in human form. Well, fasten your seat belts because we have the answer!

Whatever comes your way is what you need to experience.

What you need to experience is what you planned to learn before you came down to Earth (what most call their “life lessons”). You selected all the categories of lessons you wanted to have, once you were in body form, and so you set up the sequences of events that would precipitate them. When you arrived you had amnesia so that you could face the lesson without previous knowledge and, in working through the lesson and understanding it, grow in wisdom, which was your ultimate goal.

The reason this question appears so frequently is that humans need reassurance that they are right. The soul doesn’t judge things as right or wrong. The soul just wishes to experience things so that it may gain wisdom through evaluating whether the action is something it wishes to repeat, or whether it has learned enough to move on.

Your human need for constant validation gives your power to “those who know” so that you can be sure you are “right.” What hogwash! Honor yourself! Take responsibility for your life, and work through what is in front of you so that you can move forward. Go inside and follow those feelings that tell you the direction you intended to take.

In love, light, and laughter,

The Masters of the Sprit World

Becoming an adult

Monday, April 28th, 2008

Dear Masters, I am 23 years old, have a college degree, work a full-time well-paying job, and have been admitted to professional school for an MS/PhD in Neurophysiology. Since junior year in college I have been living with my boyfriend who is paying all the living expenses. My parents have paid for my education and have told me that if I move back home, they will pay for my advanced degrees (the school is near their home). My boyfriend is mad at me for not contributing to our expenses since I have been working, but I am updating my wardrobe and saving for a much-needed vacation. It seems like everyone is placing demands upon me and I  don’t like it! What should I do?

We are going to be very blunt: You need to grow up and assume responsibility for your own actions. From your question it is very apparent that you are extremely intelligent but also very naive when it comes to life.

Animals are taken care of by their parents and care givers only until they reach a point where they are capable of taking care of themselves. Then, whether they like it or not, they are kicked out of the den, nest, or home. If they fail to assume responsibility for themselves they do not survive long without being fed. [The Masters are showing the channel a baby bird having an insect shoved into its beak by a parent, while another bird starves because it has no parent.]

Out of love, your boyfriend has taken care of you while you were consumed with your studies. He assumed that once you began making money you would take over the part of your own upkeep that he had been volunteering. Instead, while he still works hard to pay for himself and take care of you, you have been selfishly taking your salary and using it on non-essentials. He is hurt and fed up by your attitude. You have not even been willing to listen to the dilemma he feels he has fallen into. You continue to act like a spoiled little princess entitled to have her own way no matter what.

Your parents feel a sense of responsibility for you, but only if you are still under their roof so that they may monitor your progress toward emancipation. You have book learning, and those who love you want to make sure you now obtain common sense so that you may finally become an “adult”.

When three’s a crowd

Friday, April 25th, 2008

Masters, I have been married for 26 years and still love my husband even though we have been moving apart for some time. Our interests are no longer compatible and I feel stagnant. About 18 months ago I met a man who could complete my sentences, our energies are so similar. We have the same interests in learning about ourselves and understanding the purpose of life. My husband has found out about our relationship and has given me an ultimatum: our marriage or my new friend. I lied to my husband and told him that I am no longer in communication with my companion. Relations with my husband have improved but they are still not as good as with my new friend. What should I do? I love them equally and don’t want to give either of them up.

During the course of any human lifespan you come in contact with innumerable souls with whom you have previously made contracts. Some of these contracts are to last the entirety of your physicality and some are to allow you to learn lessons from the other soul, or more about yourself, and then to move on to a new vista.

With any individual with whom you have shared intimate relations there is a sense of appreciation and love that you wish to hang on to so that you might re-experience the moment. Your husband has been around for a tremendous amount of growth on your part and has precipitated, or played a part in, all of it.

This new associate has come into your life for you to see that you have not learned everything there is to know about yourself as a soul and to show you one way to go about learning more. With this knowledge you may now experiment with ways to understand yourself better—with your husband, with this new interest, or on your own.

You are going through the lesson of selfishness at the moment. You are allowing both men to think that they have your undivided attention while you dangle to and fro in front of them. It is time to step back and really see what you feel about this situation. What type of person do you wish to be at this time? Do you want to play on the emotions of both of these men? While it is true you will be able to learn a lot by continuing this behavior, what are you really seeking? Do you want to have the feeling when you step away from the drama that you have cheated these two men because you could not be truthful to them? Ask yourself if you are even being truthful to yourself. Isn’t it time to make decisions so that everyone can get on with their lives?
