The balance of energy

Tuesday, September 10th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters, you have said that Earth is a planet with equal amount of negativity and positivity. If I choose positive things, does negativity increase somewhere else? What does it help to make the world a better place if it isn’t possible in the end? Is the Earth or humankind ascending and how do these relate? ~Hanna, Finland

ANSWER: The planet’s energy is equally divided. Just as you have surmised about your action, the action of others has a similar effect. Say a religious fanatic believes he needs to destroy his enemy; this gathers a ton of negativity to him and his followers, releasing positive energy that you may more easily gather to yourself. Each of you has freedom of choice, and the cycle can start with either energy.

A soul can only make decisions for, and take care of, one person – itself. It is a beautiful dream to be able to share your awareness with others for the purpose of creating a “better” place. Two things intrude: First, “better” is a judgment that exists only in the ego-based, judgmental world, not the spiritually enlightened one. Second, each person (soul) has to make the same decisions based upon their own growth and journey – you can’t influence them or make decisions for them.

What your Earthly expedition entails is creating your ideal illusion while learning about and understanding who you are as a soul. You hope that you find a group of other souls with the same goals in mind, but it may turn into a singular trip just like your soul’s journey.

The Earth is a shared illusion created to provide a classroom for a soul to learn about duality and their powers and abilities through using their freedom of choice within that duality. It doesn’t change, and since it isn’t a soul, it doesn’t need to ascend.

A soul who is having a human existence wishes to be able to re-enter or ascend back to their spiritual abode while still maintaining the physical characteristics that allow them to sense and feel all the wonderful things of which only a body is capable. A soul who is back Home is in unconditional love energy and energetic bliss, with no negative, sad, depressing, etc. thoughts or sensations.

It is the ego-judgmental mind that equates happiness to only the physical world and therefore thinks that only if everyone and everything ascends will there be a utopia. Souls are ascending individually, not as a group, since ascension is dependent on the choices of each person. Sharing the process of awakening with another can assist you in making the choices necessary – but each still must willingly participate.

Understanding the process

QUESTION: Masters, I am 62 and feel I have experienced a move forward in my spirituality and open-mindedness in the last 2+ years. Last month, I was diagnosed with cancer and two weeks later, my husband was let go from his job. This is the fourth time he’s been let go from a job in the last 15 years. The previous times, I would fall apart and become very anxious and depressed. This time, even with the cancer, I’m handling it much better emotionally. Did I choose these circumstances? For what lessons? Am I calmer this time because I’ve advanced somewhat in my spirituality? ~Pam, United States

ANSWER: Everything a soul experiences is either because of choices they have made before coming to Earth, or concerning lessons they are currently undertaking. You chose to explore loss of control, anxiety, depression, self-doubt, and lack of self-confidence. You held a huge concern for the opinions of others and doubted your own intuition and knowledge.

Your husband is very laid back and unaffected by the opinions of others. He does not play well with others, and it appears as if he is constantly disrespecting people. Employers and co-workers put up with it for a while and then rebel and refuse to work with him any longer, hence he gets fired or laid off. His lack of concern for his situation has always played right into your lessons, resulting in panic for you.

As you have grown spiritually, you have come to realize that you create your own reality, and the way you respond to things is also your choice. You also believe that the universe will not give you more than you can handle at any one time. This gives you a sense that you have more control over your situation. You are much more relaxed, understanding your lessons and that you can create your reality by the choices you have made.

Your depression was a lack of any firm impression about your surroundings. You left that up to your husband and chance in the past, but you now take an active part in its creation. This is because you have thrown away your self-doubt and lack of self-confidence. Congratulations! These are all results of completing your lessons and moving ahead spiritually.

Finding self

QUESTION: Masters I was raised in an old way, with many criticisms and castrations and could not be who I was, I had to retreat to try to get in the molds expected first by my parents and then by society. I have always tried to defer these ways, I have always sought my life mission, I have taken numerous courses, read and still read a lot about self-development but I feel lost from myself. I am a good wife, a good mother but I don’t know who I really am. What are my skills and talents? How do you get close to me and help make the world a better place to live? ~Aline, Brazil

ANSWER: You are still being hindered by the belief systems that have haunted you all your life. Trying to fit into all those molds demanded by others made you create beliefs within yourself of what they wanted and what you felt you had to achieve. Until and unless you release those beliefs, you will never find out who you really are.

Your conclusions about being a good wife and mother are part of those beliefs – and a fine place to start examining your world. Judging anything, including your definition for yourself, is part of the ego society, which prizes judging every aspect of behavior.

Step back from your life and see if what you are doing resonates within your soul or is just what others say you should be or do. If it feels like something you would choose yourself, then it is a choice you have made. If it seems okay, but you might have done it differently, then try that different approach. Never do something just because someone else says it is what you should do.

You are a soul who has chosen to have a human experience so that you might explore the possibilities of choosing one form of action over another. Your origin is Source energy, from whom you were broken off. You therefore have all the powers and abilities of Source if you accept that you do.

Once you acknowledge that you are all-powerful, magnificent, and creative, you can start working with these characteristics and discovering who you are.
