He said-She said

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Question: Masters, my oldest friend and I have come to a parting of the ways (after 40 yrs) because, while my sons were visiting her in the United States, another friend told her something bad about them which was not true. She chose to believe the other friend and I choose to believe my sons. Hurt and anger and betrayal ensued. I have withdrawn from my best friend and totally rejected the other friend. I cannot deal with her as long as she accepts the other friend’s words as truth. ~Sara, Oman

ANSWER: Everybody creates their own truth based upon their perspective. It is very difficult when distance separates friends both geographically and emotionally. You are a mother bear protecting her cubs against the world. First, your cubs are large enough and strong enough to protect themselves. Second, there is more to your reaction than just taking sides with one friend or another.

You feel cut off by distance and lack of regular contact. You have some jealousy for those able to be together sharing the same space. The hurt, anger, and betrayal have much more depth than this one misunderstanding. These are emotions that you have been hiding just under the surface. They emerge when you feel anything that seems to be like them, or to which you respond with strong negativity. Stop and ask yourself what the underlying feelings are that make you feel hurt or angry. When you go into these feelings you will see they have little to do with this one event.

What was said or believed makes no difference unless you allow it to have energy. Your truth, what you know about your boys, will not change. A person’s truth when things are seen from another angle can differ greatly and yet be about the same observations. You cannot force others to believe what you believe unless they choose to do so. This does not mean that everything about your past relationship must be thrown out and disregarded. Simply agree to disagree while you remember all the good times and what your friend truly means to you.

No absolute universal truths

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, what is the story about no universal absolute truth? Say for example a person believes in a certain religion, certain product, food, diet, supplement, or regime, and if beliefs are the foundation of any true truth for the actual person it seems contradictory. If one believed in chemotherapy to cure one’s ailment yet still passed on with no improvement, then this theory could be challenged.  So I ask, what is the real truth and is there never one truth to the absolute solution? It seems it is all in the eyes of the believer as you start in the mind and it tells the body/cells, etc. to follow suit. Then, swallowing a caustic agent when you thought it to be therapeutic would not be…so where do you draw the line in truth, absolute truth? How do you explain this for the believers co-creating of reality and proven scientific results?   ~Jen, Canada

ANSWER: First, while you present an interesting scenario it contains way too many variables. A truth, within the human psyche, is something that souls accept as applying to them at that moment in time. It is relevant to them alone since they set the parameters of desires, needs, experience, and lessons. For a single lifetime the truths for the soul may change a number of times. In first grade, your truth is that you cannot do algebra; in 10th grade, that you cannot do calculus; and in 12th grade, that you are not a licensed physician.

Are you seeing that the pattern has a lot to do with experience as well as beliefs? It is also Earth ego determinant, in other words it has everything to do with judgment of what is right and wrong. In the spiritual non-physical world there is no right and wrong, so there are no absolutes. A physical “absolute” as part of its definition is free from imperfections and variables, having no restrictions, exceptions, or qualifications.

A soul that knows its nature is an extremely powerful energy and can create whatever it needs to experience. If souls came to Earth to experience cancer and to succumb to it, no amount of chemotherapy or anything else is going to cure it. If a soul did not plan to have death by poison, then consuming a poison might sicken it, but will not kill the body. If people’s faith is strong enough and it is part of their journey, even caustic substances will have no effect.

The universe has no truths because it has no judgment declaring that only one thing is correct. Since each soul is on its own unique journey, we say there are no absolutes controlling factors within that life. The closest we can come to a certain fact, which some may say is absolute, is that all souls are a part of Source coming from unconditional love, and to that love they shall eventually return.

Can’t escape the fear

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

QUESTION: Masters, a spate of unfortunate incidents caused me to have a spiritual awakening in 2007. Since then, I’ve discovered a lot about myself including the fact that I’m an Indigo and a lightworker. This has explained why I am the only one in my family who used to feel the presence of non-physical beings as a child, especially in my bedroom. As I progress along my spiritual journey, I am becoming more sensitive and aware of new abilities. However my sense of fear has not decreased. Instead I still fear any contact with the non-physical. What can I do to get rid of this fear? I feel that in order to progress in my journey I should embrace my gifts without any fear. ~ NKS, Singapore

ANSWER: Regardless of the fact of the lineage you chose for this lifetime, you have been imprinted with belief systems from society and family. When you interacted with your non-physical friends from the other side as a child, your family was horrified and told you it was wrong, dangerous, and you could get hurt. These threats have remained within your unconscious and given energy to your fear now whenever there is an encounter with non-physicals.

There are only two energies in the world: love and fear. If you don’t love something, some aspect of fear will arrive to drive you away from any contact with it. You have the belief system fear and the “I don’t love myself” layer of fear. To rid yourself of the belief systems you must ask yourself, every time a fear appears, why do I feel this way? If you are truthful you will be able to go back to the time that the belief was written into your brain. You then have the freedom of choice to keep it around or delete it from your life.

Acceptance of the presence of the unconditional love that is your soul allows you to love yourself and everything you are experiencing. When you know you are eternal and can feel the love of the universe, nothing can hurt you or make you afraid. When you think you are alone, everything is scary. Connect with yourself and banish the fear.
