Relationship responsibilities

QUESTION: Masters I’ve always been a little detached from the family, at least I always feel that way. But after my awakening I got further apart. I feel like running the world, living new things, living alone but there’s always the thought that I’m being selfish, that I’m not caring much for family (Grandmothers, Uncles). Sometimes I think they (my family) are selfish in the sense that they think everyone has to be around all the time hitting the other’s life. It has bothered me so much lately; I know I can get rid of it and create the life I want. But I want the advice of you my master and guides. What do you have to tell me about it? ~Ju, Brazil

ANSWER:  In the duality of human life, there are differing ways to look at common actions based upon your perspective. If you are engaging in the battle of negative and positive choices, which freedom of choice allows, you are using society’s basic tool, which is ego. Ego is powered by judgment and everything is either right or wrong.

The spiritual approach to life steps away from judgment and spends its time evaluating if what you are observing is beneficial to your growth or not. There is no judgment and no ego.

Life’s journey is carried out by each soul individually. You cannot learn from depending on anyone else. All the choices must be your own, completed for understanding why you have come to Earth. You owe nothing to anyone but yourself.

As you have moved away from judgment during your awakening, you no longer accept the judgment society used to impose upon you, such as having a responsibility toward those related to you. This awareness is making you feel uncomfortable because the relatives are constantly reminding you of it since they benefit from having you fawn over them.

Part of your growth includes having confidence in your own feelings. You should never do something just because someone else demands it. You should always honor yourself by making your own decisions. The people are craving the strong energy you now give off in your enlightened state and are more eager to have you at their beck and call. The choice is yours.
