New Year’s Resolutions

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Masters, I know that human celebrations may seem a little artificial to you, being outside of planet Earth’s time zone. But the dawn of the calendar year, for us, is a time when we human beings like to make lists of “good resolutions.” We usually aim at things like losing weight, stopping smoking, and speaking nicely to our mother-in-law. If you were to make a list of good resolutions for humankind, what would it contain?

This question really started an interesting discussion among us. Our first point of interest was what we would consider a “good” resolution-you do know that we do not judge good, bad, or best. But then we laid semantics aside and dived into the issue. Our point of view was from a rather different perspective than yours might be: we looked from the angle of souls wishing to complete their mission to Earth. With that in mind, our list would read:

1.       To become aware of our true nature.

2.       To love all souls sharing this journey with us even when we do not like the nature of their chosen lessons.

3.       To accept ourselves fully as we are because it is necessary for the path we walk.

4.       To learn to banish all fear so we might see the lesson within.

5.       To understand the lessons we came to Earth to learn.

6.       To trust in the Universe knowing it will not give us more than we can endure.

7.       To have faith in our self because we are divine.

8.       To know we create our own reality so we have the power to create what we need to complete our journey.

9.       To be able to release the human ego to enjoy fully the unconditional love of the soul.

10.   To live each day in communion with our fellow souls in unconditional love.

Happy Earth New Year to all!

The soul’s search for knowledge

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Masters, you have said in your teaching concerning wealth that knowledge is the soul’s wealth and earthly goods are the ego’s wealth. I find that extremely interesting. In my quest for knowledge, I’m just wondering, why does the soul get such a kick out of knowledge? Is knowledge an end in itself or just a means to an end?

Your question originated in our teachings on the wealth aspect of prosperity. For human beings to experience lessons, of necessity many deal with the lack of, search for, or use of earthly possessions. The result of each Earth lesson undertaken by the soul is knowledge, with which the soul evaluates what has occurred. The ego, however, is judgmental: e.g., who is right? who has the most goods? who is the best? how do I become the best?

The wealth of the soul is the knowledge of the process involved in each Earth lesson and the feelings gained from the experience. Knowledge is the soul’s reason for learning Earth lessons in order to complete its Earth journey.

The soul takes information Home in the form of knowledge and delves into it for the wisdom it can learn from that knowledge. To turn knowledge into wisdom the soul first has to participate in the activity. In this participation, the soul has to understand the nature of its actions and the resulting reactions. Wisdom comes when the soul is able to apply the principles learned to every other situation of a like kind, whenever and wherever it arises, from that moment forward. When all this is complete, the knowledge has become the end the soul sought from the first idea it had to pursue that particular lesson.

The soul’s “kick” in obtaining knowledge is the completion of the purpose for an incarnation. Depending on your point of view, it is both a means and an end. We trust this answer has contributed to your knowledge and formed the foundation for more wisdom.

Change of advice

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Masters, I am troubled because I sought your counsel three years ago about my son’s picky eating habits. You advised that it was not a matter of concern because he was “strong as a bull” and able to “get his nutrition from the prana in the air”.  Several months ago, in another reading, you advised that his eating was now a matter for concern because he was now being stubborn and if he didn’t change his habits he could suffer serious consequences. Why was there such a change in advice?

We understand your concern. It is sometimes difficult to appreciate that the same situation may have a different meaning at another time. Whenever we are asked a question we give you an indication of how the energy is flowing around the situation at that exact moment. If there is a change in any circumstance affecting that energy pattern, the interpretation of the same energy signature will change.

Your son is an older soul who has chosen very complex lessons for this lifetime. In the first years of his life nothing of the physical had much of an impact upon his body. He was able to sustain himself with the very energy contained in the air (prana). As he has gotten older he has become more physical and therefore more subject to the effects of the physical implications of the bodily process. He can no longer live solely on prana.

What has also happened as he has grown and matured is his ability to read the anxiety of others. He is living somewhat on the fear expelled by those around him. He has found the power that his actions can have upon his parents and has found ways to use that to control the immediate situation. He loves the attention that he gets by not being normal. He is a very strong-willed individual and thinks he can outlast everyone else. It has become a mind game with him.

You are taking all the right steps to let him know that you love and care about him. It is important that you set limits for his behavior and do not reward misbehavior. He is having a negative effect upon the rest of the family now and it is important that you decide how far you will let it go. Nothing is right or wrong. You are all experiencing lessons which you chose.
