Aging with anger

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, I used to be a very easy going, loving being. As I get older I’m becoming very angry with the governments and with the general populace. I am extremely concerned about our planet and the changes it is going through which have been brought on by our way of life. Am I just getting old? Or is there a spiritual reason why I am feeling so much anger and sadness?   ~Greta, Canada

ANSWER: The awareness that you have of the planetary issues is the result of media coverage, which has increased exponentially as you have aged. In recent years politicians, in particular, have jumped on the bandwagon that makes the most of disasters and deplorable conditions—all with the statement that they alone can offer a solution for the problems. Cynics say we have only ourselves to blame and no one is able to correct the problems.

With people pointing out all the failures in the world that could possibly exist, and thousands giving support to one plan or another, coupled with the observation that nothing is really changing for the positive, the result is predictable: Anger, frustration, and sadness are to be expected if you are invested in the society in which you live.

When you are so consumed with all the physical actions, it is impossible to see the spiritual aspects of the causes. Making this your accepted environment and choosing to feel affected by it, without recourse, will make your life even more chaotically third dimensional. Souls create what they want as their environment.

We always tell souls: you are exactly where you need to be when you are there. How you feel is how you choose to feel. That is the spiritual lesson here. Learn to create rather than being manipulated by the words of others. Feel the unconditional love of your soul and adopt that as your day-to-day sensation. What is happening in the world is the result of the choices of the other people with which you share the planet. Let them feel the devastation if they need. Go to your higher spiritual self and bask in love, knowing that what is happening is needed by others but not by you.

Questioning oneself

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, at 40 yrs of age, I thought I’d found my life purpose. Now I’m spending my salary to pay for a course to become a spiritual worker. People are asking me if I’m saving up enough money for the future. Others tell me that I’m spending too much money on a very expensive course. I start to wonder if I’m really on the right path. Is this my life purpose, or am I unrealistic?                  ~Vivien, Singapore

ANSWER: What do your feelings tell you about your current status? What you think and feel is where your answers lie, not in what other people say or tell you. Society, composed of family, co-workers, friends, associates, thinks it knows more about you than you do yourself. If you wish to allow others to control and direct you, then listen and follow their statements without question.

You came to us because you had doubts. But those doubts are really about the concerns of others. Society says you should have money saved for the future. Okay, so how much? How long are you going to be in human form? Are you never going to get assisted by way of inheritance or have fortune come to you? What if you spend all your time gathering money and the currency fails, or you had decided to return Home when you were just a few years older? All the work saving money would have prevented you from experiencing life. It is important to live in the now!

You felt very strongly that the course you signed up for would lead you to your spiritual path. The fact that it is expensive does not change what it is doing for you. If your desire had been to become a physician, neither you nor your friends would be complaining about the cost of medical school. Getting specialized training is scarce and sometimes costly.

Forget what those around you are saying. Go inside and see what you have learned and how it makes you feel. If it enriches you and makes you feel good, you are on the right path.

Unacceptable conditions

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, I have a 22-year-old daughter who decided to become estranged from the whole family. After two years she made contact, via an email, which had her conditions for re-establishing a relationship. They are not conducive to a relationship of a loving nature. I do not know what to do. I have found myself drawing closer to my higher self and my sense of purpose beyond this life. Is this the challenge set before me of letting go of an attachment which has unhappiness associated with it, even though it involves my daughter? She was always the child who thrived on keeping the house in chaos, and loved bullying me and anyone she felt she could have power over. I don’t know who she is anymore. Can you help me find the right path where I don’t feel that I am leaving behind a child who was in my keep?    ~Kate, USA

ANSWER: No one should have to put or accept conditions on a relationship. Your daughter is still the bully you remember from the past. Since she has been out in the world through her self-imposed exile, it has been more and more difficult for her to find people who readily allow her to take away their energy. She is looking for a refueling base and that is the reason behind her desire to be with her family again. She figures she was able to call the shots before, and have that sense of power, so why not do it again?

As a soul you have no responsibility for anyone other than yourself and finding your reason for being here. Society says that a child is always a child and you have responsibility for her forever. This is so people have someone to blame. Once a person reaches the age of majority, parents are no longer legally responsible for anything that their child does, even though it is easier on society if you voluntarily assume responsibility.

You cannot make someone do anything that she does not choose to do. Whether the person is related to you or not is irrelevant. Your daughter made her choice to leave. Do not allow her to have control over you again, just to have contact with her. If she should ever choose to return with no strings attached, then receive her with love, but don’t accept terms in exchange for endearment.
