Creation of stages

QUESTION: Masters, you have said that there are a lot of planets in the universe that the spirit world uses as places to train souls.  Can you give us more details about some of them, please? Isn’t Earth good enough as a training ground? What is the object of all this training anyway?

ANSWER: In your short question you have touched on many principles of the soul. When Source wished to have the experience of something other than the magnificence of the unconditional love of which it consists, it began by breaking off pieces of itself that became what you know as souls. These souls needed a place to go and live in, other than continuing in unconditional love.

At first, Source wanted to feel the opposite of love, so it created a planet of duality where everything has an exact opposite. This is what you know as your Earth. In these extremes the soul can judge and evaluate differences among various emotions and actions. Love, hate, despair, loathing, control, self worth, betrayal, etc., can all be thoroughly examined on Earth.

A soul chooses what it wishes to learn in each different life on the planet, and becomes wise in the richness of emotions and love. But sometimes it wants to concentrate on something that does not fit well with the hectic routines of human life. Therefore, Source decided to provide other venues for the soul to have specialized experiences.

A number of other places were set up. Each of these specializes in a particular experience. There is a place to spend all a soul’s time enveloped in sound vibration to better understand that sounds, such as music, are a language in themselves. Other areas are dedicated to visual experiences or to examining physical prowess in many different body forms. Some souls wish to engage in philosophical debates—they even examine the necessity of the experiments in which they participate.

On these other worlds, some of the lessons are learned in human bodies, some are in physical compositions that would not be recognized as human, and some take place in the soul’s energetic amorphous (cloud-like) form. All these experiences are undertaken to more fully appreciate the unconditional love energy of Home.
