Belief systems vs. the universe

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

QUESTION: Masters, in your FAQ, you mentioned that it is a universal law that says all souls have the ultimate right to decide exactly what they are going to do while incarnate. Does this mean that karma (as is posited as a universal law in Buddhism) does not exist? As I understand it, in Buddhism as well as Theosophy, karma, when its seeds are ripened, will determine what kind of reincarnation one has, so there is no total free choice. Kindly explain to me this seeming contradiction. ~Terence, Singapore

ANSWER: The contradiction exists only in a comparison between apples and oranges. You are trying to equate the physical rules of a religious belief system that exists in a dualistic, third-dimensional judgmental world with the nonphysical, energetic “beingness” of unconditional love. In the energetic fifth dimension, there is only positive energy—no negativity or balancing of past acts needed. Belief systems control the physical thoughts of the body a soul may choose to inhabit while it is on Earth. The choice of whether to adhere to a particular set of rules and regulations or the beliefs of a particular group belongs to each individual.

Each soul having a physical experience has the freedom to choose which of the many possible religious thought groups it wishes to use to configure its physical life. It may accept all of the teachings of one sect or it may pick and choose those with which it resonates. Most humans do not understand that they may make their own choices; they are brought up by family and society to embrace the “accepted” form of thought for that part of the world. All people have the ability to make such decisions for themselves, but most of the time they just follow along as they are taught.

Before the soul enters into human a body, it chooses which life lessons it wishes to experience. These lessons can only occur on Earth, where both negative and positive aspects compete. It is in freely choosing negative or positive that the soul may see which one it wishes to continue experiencing—that is the lesson. So, as you can see, the soul can make choices both before it incarnates and by modifying its actions once on Earth. This is the freedom of choice we write about.

Harming a soul

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

QUESTION: Masters, several mediums have struggled to explain to me how my “twin flame” was incarnate for a very brief time with me (though not a romantic relationship) to trigger events crucial for me to experience, but that because of extreme trauma in his brief hideous lifetime, even part of his soul was wounded, though he’s healed with angelic help. Is it true that he came to offer me “emergency assistance”, though it was the polar opposite of every “Hollywood” version I’ve heard? I’ve suffered extreme adversity and betrayal also, worlds different on the surface but underneath like we walk the same treacherous path together only at different paces. Does this mean that I share his soul wounds, and that my weaknesses and failures will hurt him also? How can I help protect him and heal us when self-hatred has become my burden? I can’t feel self-love. Are prayers helpful? ~Camille, USA

ANSWER: A soul is an immortal energy that can be neither harmed nor destroyed. The only place in the universe that contains negativity, therefore bad or harmful things, is planet Earth. Some souls may choose to take some negative thoughts with them as they leave their physical bodies and start Home, but they cannot get past the pull of the duality of Earth. They cannot enter into the unconditional love of the Source energy that we call Home. A pure soul may not be harmed, diminished, or affected in any way; it is all-powerful, magnificent Source energy.

Your soul has no wounds. The difficult life lessons that another soul may choose to live out during incarnation, a lifetime on Earth, are not shared by or harmful to anyone else. It is universal: your soul harms no other and cannot be harmed by any other.

A twin soul is the other half of your first division from Source. When you are energetic, you have no sex and your twin has no sex. You have been males and females in past lives, as has your twin. You rarely choose to be on Earth at the same time because if you were, all you would want is to be together regardless of whether you were the same or different sexes, ages, races, or nationalities.

It was not your twin with whom you had an encounter, but rather a regular soul mate with whom you had made a contract. When you have chosen a difficult lesson and you want to ensure it will occur in a lifetime, you contract with another to be the initiator of the events that will cause your challenge to appear. He had the opportunity to experience a desired lesson through your contact. Once the connection was over, you had no further obligation to him.

Your journey now includes working to learn your lessons on your own. You wanted to have betrayal, lack of love, lack of self-worth, and hatred as tasks to understand. Forget your connection to this other soul and spend time on yourself. Go inside and find the love that is there. Stop thinking and start feeling your way through life. Feeling is the pathway to your essence of unconditional love. Pray to yourself to forgive your misconceptions and to allow you to love everything you have put your body through in order to come back to your magnificence.

Where is my life partner

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

QUESTION: Masters, I’m Markku from Finland a gay man. I’m been looking for my life soul mate for a long time. I have been doing my lightwork, etc. for long time. I don’t know why I’m frustrated when I open myself to a man who I love I get disappointed. I’m very, very open honest man. I have time now since I quit work I’m sort of free for everything. My heart tells me to rest and enjoy but my mind wants a man in my life. I’m tired of this. Please I like to hear some honest answers. What’s my role here, do I ever achieve my goal of a life partner? ~Markku, Suomi

ANSWER: We hate to disappoint you, but there is no one life soul mate, partner, or any designated individual for you. You are being betrayed by your own expectations. Disappointment appears any time you have determined you want a particular outcome and it doesn’t materialize. When you plan out how you desire an event to be completed, you are trying to control the actions of any other people involved. You can never cause others to take an action to which they do not consent.

You doubt yourself so much that the message you are unconsciously sending out to others is one of confusion and indecision. The battle you are having between your heart and your mind is a good example of fighting yourself. Your mind is filled with thoughts and ideas that have been placed there by what you have been told and what you have read. It has nothing to do with your experience or your intuition; it comes from outside of yourself, from society.

Go with your heart, with the feelings of your inner self. Find a love of self within. Bring that love out and show the world you know what love is. When others feel the love you exude, they will want to be with you; that is how you will find a man to share your life. Remember, you can only love another to the degree you love yourself.
