Compelled to buy

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Dear fellow souls, we find it interesting, at least those of us who have never previously been in a body form, that so many of you get such a delight out of purchasing things—for some it is even a compulsion. Once you have acquired these treasures you then find it difficult to get rid of the things you don’t need (the pack-rat syndrome), or you live among them, walking around them without noticing or interacting with them (the clutter-bug syndrome). Some among you would say that results from rampant consumerism.

As souls we need nothing. As humans you need whatever it takes for you to learn the lessons that you entered your body to tackle. Most of the needs and wants that you are consumed with are the result of your competing with those around you. Your egotism tells you that you are not significant unless you can be like those whom you admire. If “everyone” has a flat-screen television, an automobile no older than 3 years, and a large house, then anything that doesn’t measure up to those standards is, for you, insufficient. You feel cheated and worthless.

We are commenting on this aspect of your life to remind you that there is nothing wrong with any of these behaviors. Each experience that you have allows you to learn things about yourself and how you feel and react to each situation. Do take the time, though, to understand why you have certain compulsions. Don’t judge yourself against the lifestyle of others. Just evaluate if you are truly sensing the meaning of the experiences confronting you.

While you are gauging those experiences, live your life with love, light, and laughter.

The Masters of the Spirit World

Emergence of repressed emotions

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Q. Masters, for the longest time I have been successful in letting go of ego and judgment and enjoying a blissful daily life, always content and happy and taking everything as a life lesson that I wished to experience in this existence. All of a sudden, the most insignificant of occurrences seems to set me into a depression or a crying jag. I get this overwhelming feeling that the whole world is against me and that I can’t do anything right. What is happening to me?

A. All souls have many layers of feelings and the sensation of many different dimensions within which they co-exist. When you are without judgment and ego, you are living outside the plurality of the Earth experience and are in touch with unconditional love where all is “heavenly.”

As you get more comfortable in being free of those duality lessons, which all souls come to Earth to experience, you open yourself to deeper levels of suppressed emotions and lessons from both your current and past lifetimes. As these deeper layers of human emotions emerge you react to them as you did to the surface emotions which you worked through and learned from.

What you need to do with these recently dug-up feelings is to go into the thought process that accompanies them and see why you have returned to negative feelings. You are re- experiencing incidences of worthlessness and guilt – very common Earth lessons.

You have worked through these many times before and will easily do so this time. You simply have to confront the feelings that come along with the emotions, take back your power to decide what effect they are going to have upon you, and reclaim your own identity.

These experiences can only be had in a world of judgment where some things are good and others are bad. Either see them as just an challenges that you wish to have again (so you can keep them around), or learn why you never want to go through them again (so you can send them packing). 

Partners and co-creation

Friday, April 18th, 2008

Q. Masters, you have discussed in the past that we are responsible for creating our own realities, or as some say, manifesting our destinies. Can you comment on the joint creation between two life partners? My partner and I definitely are in tune with each other and co-create our world, but I favor change and my partner hates it. He does accept what I propose, but what actual creation energy is at play here?

A. Each soul is totally responsible for their actions and what they call to itself – what you call “creating”. When two people work together to create the same scenario they are both responsible for the output of the energy they invest. Therefore the result is a shared venture.

Your partner is allowing you to direct the desired result for both of you, giving power up to you in the sense that you alone decide what changes to experience. At this time, you and you alone create this new environment. Your partner then joins you in enjoying your creation, and in enjoying it, he also accepts it as his own. This is a perfect example of a codependency in one of the aspects of coupling with another. In this situation you both still maintain your own identity for all other facets of your life.

Your partner is very happy to sit back and let you do the work. He somewhat fears change and chooses to make it only after he has seen that someone else has been successful in directing it to him. Your partner does not have any confidence in his ability to make the “right” decision for the future. This dependency on you is neither right nor wrong – it is the path he wishes to experience at this time. It looks as if that is going to change in the future.
