Lifestyle choices

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Q. Masters, I am a professional thirty-something man who is engaged in a homosexual relationship with another young professional. We have a number of friends in the gay community and also quite a large number of heterosexual friends. My parents are happy that I have found someone and am finally settling down. My problem is that I have become estranged from my younger brother who always followed me like a shadow. He will not even talk to me about my lifestyle, and refuses to visit my home because of my partner. What can I do to get him back in my life?

A. Your brother is afraid, almost to the point of being terrified. He thinks that too much association with you and your partner will turn him into a homosexual as well. He was in a fraternity of jocks at college who were homophobic. He is even afraid to talk to his friends about your lifestyle for fear of what they will think or do.

Your lesson of sexual preference entailed dealing with ambivalence within yourself. Secondarily, it addressed whether you were strong enough to overcome the self- worth issues that arose as you first made the discovery about yourself and the fact you were not like the majority of other humans on the planet. You never wavered accepting your choice and the related dissension that it caused. Going internally you felt your way to your truth and are now at peace.

You chose to experience a life as a homosexual in order to deal with prejudice and bigotry. It was even determined that you should find yourself in the midst of the family struggle that now exists. Just as your brother chose to put himself into a situation where he is completely controlled by the beliefs of others, you chose to be the stimulant that causes him to examine his feelings versus those of his friends.

You cannot force others to change their mind. You can, however, provide them with information about other points of view which allows them to change their opinion. Do not get confrontational with your brother. Treat him and his opinions as his right. Continue to send him holiday cards and gifts, and keep the invitations coming so that he can see you aren’t discriminating against him – as he is you.

The Newsletter is back!

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Dear fellow souls, we have noticed that, in your busy lives, little reminders help to keep you on track. A number of you have bemoaned the passing of the newsletter that our human friends Peter and Toni were sending out. We have decided to ask them to resume the practice.

Due to their schedules, it will probably not arrive on the weekly basis as in the past. At this time they anticipate shipping it off once or twice a month.

It has been decided that we will use one of the commercial email services to help speed things up. The service insists that participants all be voluntary subscribers. To this end, we are asking anyone who wishes to be on our mailing list to send us their email address.

To be sure to be included in our list, please send an email with “Subscribe” in the subject line to

The Masters of the Spirit World

Energies from the other side

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Q. Masters, during the holidays I invited all my ancestors, angels, guides, and other benevolent beings from our Creator who had our highest good in mind, to enter my home and be a part of our celebration. I had never had any orbs appear in photos taken in my home, but those two days I sure did. I wouldn’t have believed that they were spirits if I hadn’t felt the energy presences myself. My question is, why is there so much controversy and confusion over orbs?

A. It was very nice of you to extend a personal invitation to have those spirits who help you from the Other Side take part in your celebration. Frequently when souls are visiting somewhere on your planet, they do not take the time or energy to assume the shape of a human being. It is much easier for them just to partake as their pure energy body.

In most cases they take the shape of a sphere of swirling energy. It is very difficult for most people to see these orbs in person, but they are easily captured on a digital camera and sometimes even on film. Souls take many forms, but the most common are spheres that appear to have geometric shapes within them. Sometimes the soul will take the time to form an appearance similar to a human face. Occasionally several souls will band together and you will be able to detect several different energies within a single orb

You ask why there is so much controversy and confusion. Remember, you would not have believed it if you hadn’t felt the energy yourself. Now consider that a huge majority of the population is unable to feel energy, that the orbs are not really visible to the naked eye, and that people only believe what they can see, and you can understand why there is doubt and controversy
