Types of love

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

QUESTION: Masters, I understand that definitions of love are different. Can you please help me (us) understand the difference between “loving someone” and ‘being in love’ here on earth? Obviously I have issues with this and appreciate any advice you can give to help me to understand my mistakes more deeply and to grow from them. ~Kim, United States

ANSWER: Loving people is a spiritual state in which you totally accept them. It is also called unconditional love since you allow them to be themselves and utilize their freedom of choice to learn their lessons – even if you do not like what they are doing or would never do the same things as they. It is exclusive of any hormonal or emotional bodily responses. It is either a thinking/reasoning action or a nonphysical spiritual vibrational response.

Being in love is an emotional physiological sensation of a human body reacting in a positive/negative duality. It is a choice between not loving and loving. In the case of this human love, one can “love” someone else only to the extent that one loves oneself.

A third possibility, again only possible in a duality, is infatuation. This occurs when one does not love oneself or, having never experienced any type of love, creates an imagined visual visceral reaction to a person with whom one desires to be able to have a relationship – perhaps someone seen only infrequently or never even met, such as an actor. It can take the form of following the person, watching his/her movies, carrying pictures around, or any one of a number of things.

Love, in its various aspects, is a part of a lot of life lessons for souls on Earth. It is difficult for a soul to fully understand love while still dealing with a human existence. There is no right answer to what you should know or be able to feel or understand. Go with the flow of the energy, as we say – you will draw to you what you need to experience. Stay in the moment, feeling, observing, and learning.

Turn away from judgment, where you see things as right or wrong. Turn to evaluation, where you look at each event in your life for what you have been able to learn from it. Is it something you feel you would like to do again, or is it something you know you don’t need to repeat? That is all you really need to do with your lessons.

Is anesthesia the absence of everything?

QUESTION: Masters I’m having a dilemma. I had ACL knee surgery and was put under local anesthetic. Now it felt like only 30 seconds had past when I awoke but in fact two hours had passed. In this time I was NOTHING. It was blank no memory no dreams I simply did not exist just empty darkness with no memory or state of being in anyway. I have always believed in the afterlife but now I am scared I will simply not exist when I die. Did my soul leave my body when I was put out? If so why could I not remember? ~Kieran, UK

ANSWER: It is impossible to equate your experience with your soul’s existence. Your statements deal only with your consciousness and not your nonphysical energetic being. Even though the anesthetic was a “local” it was also accompanied by other chemicals to relax you, which frequently have the side effect of memory loss so that you do not have any trauma associated with your surgery.

Your soul was very much awake during your procedure but disconnected with your thinking conscious brain, which was masked, or put to sleep, by the chemicals. It is not unusual to not remember what occurred during your sleep cycle, so why panic when you have no memory of this short two-hour period? Unless you can say that you remember every minute your body spends asleep, don’t fret. If it bothers you that much, find a hypnotist who can help you find the missing time in your unconscious.

Your soul is a piece of the Creative Source and never dies. You came to Earth to experience things and learn to make choices to understand who your essence is and what powers it has. Because birth amnesia prevents you from being able to recall past lifetimes, does that make you feel you cease to exist after each life? Your soul’s journey will continue through this life, your transition process, and into the next. Don’t over-analyze; be comfortable in your body and on your journey.

Whose fault is religious ideology?

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

QUESTIONS: Masters why has God created so many Religions..? Why are people fighting in the name of god/religion? ~Deepak, India.

My wife is destroying me, I feel that her religion Umbanda, had a strong influence on this separation when she decided to accept and respect their choice and arbitrariness. I cannot understand a religion that separates and does not unite the families. ~Carlos, Brazil

ANSWER: Organized religions are not the creation of anyone or anything from the spiritual world. The basis of all Earth religions is judgment, which requires negativity. The duality of negative and positive exists only on this planet. Humans who wished to exert control over masses of people put together doctrines, rules, and regulations to get adherents to follow their wishes and carry out their desires.

When some leaders decided the existing religions did not cause the people to act the way they wanted them to – such as declaring war on their enemies – they created, or interpreted, a religion to make the adherents do exactly as they instructed. The formers of these religions all teach that theirs is the one true religion that should be followed by all. And if one chooses not to be a member, then they have the right to show you the error of your ways by killing the infidels.

Umbanda varies from group to group, but it is consistent in demanding that the priests are supreme and must be obeyed in all things. It combines aspects of Catholicism, spirituality, African rituals, Native American beliefs, and whatever the group leader wants to use to control the members. Most branches came into existence surrounding a spiritual medium of some kind in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is more a cult than a religion, and your wife has been made to feel important in its clutches.
