We are bridges between Heaven and Earth. Like those of the trees, our roots need to go deep down into the Earth, to draw from her all the nourishment and strength she is capable of giving. Our hands and arms are like branches for reaching high up into the Heavens, to bring down the blessing and healing rays of the Highest Sun and the brightest light in the whole of Creation, the Christ Star. Through the visible Sun in our sky it shines in every heart and soul. We are here to illuminate and warm, bless and heal everything that shares our world with us. Our loving respect and devotion for Mother Earth and Father Sun can do more than anything to enable the wise ones in the world of light to heal – through us – all parts of Creation back into the oneness they once came from.
Those who are here now, are allowed the rare privilege of welcoming and celebrating the conscious return to humankind of the gentle and infinite wisdom of the feminine, the Great Mother, the nurturer, through whom all life is given. No longer do we need to be orphans or semi-orphans, who only have a Father in Heaven, a metaphor for the highest levels of life. Both our Divine Parents are returning into the conscious awareness of our race. Ever more of us are beginning to understand that they are in us and with us, and that they will never leave us in all Eternity.
If you are feeling helpless about many of the things that are happening in our world and are frequently asking yourself: ‘What can I do about the state of our world?’ I would reply: ‘More than you might think!’ Bearing in mind that all powers that are in God are also in us and each one of being a co-creator with God, we are powerful beyond compare. Read more about this by following the links at the end of this chapter.
This is our opportunity for learning how to employ the powers within us wisely and unselfishly for the highest good of all. As aspiring healers and lightbringers we can make a valuable contribution towards our planet’s sacred marriage with and spiritualisation by the highest levels of life, which for some time has been taking place. For this purpose we need to tune not only the transmitter/receiver station of our earthly mind but our whole being into the frequency of the Christ Star and project its radiance into the distressed areas of our world. This is how everybody can do their share of helping Mother Earth.
If that’s what you wish to do, please join me in your prayers, meditations and quite reflections by thinking and projecting nothing but light and love, hope and faith into the troubled spots of our world. Do not allow your mind to batter you with questions about any of the events that still have to take place because they are part of God’s great evolutionary plan. If they were not, there would be no need for them.
Never despair but develop an ever increasing faith and trust in the basic goodness of the life we have been granted. When our mind is calm and steadfast and our heart filled with the love of God and for all our siblings in the family of humankind, the white magic of the Universal Christ’s blessing and healing energies fills our whole being and from there flows quite naturally into our whole world.
May the Archangel Michael’s golden sword of wisdom and truth touch the heart and soul of humankind to awaken the Divine spark in every heart and turn it into a small still flame of love. As ever more of us grow in wisdom and understanding, may the blazing fire of God’s sacred truth burn away every last remnant of earthly life’s ignorance.
The following is an extract of a message from the White Eagle group of spirit guides: ‘Every one of God’s creatures throughout the whole of Creation is loved and tenderly cared for by the Angelic hierarchy. This applies to all human beings, wherever they may find themselves at any given moment. And it does not make one iota of difference whether you are one of the highest and mightiest in one of the countries of your world or maybe just a gold digger on the Internet or anywhere else in your world or someone on the death row of Sing Sing.
‘If you were a digger who tries to extract money in deceitful ways from anyone who is gullible enough to fall for your sweet words and charms and swallow your tales, your success would depend on the Karma of your potential victims. God and the Angels guide you to the right ones. If someone did something similar to what you are doing now to those around them in previous lifetimes, with their help and will you are going to succeed with that person. The snag is that in one of your coming lifetimes somebody will have a go at you. The likelihood is that you will then have no idea whatsoever why something so unpleasant should be happening to you.
‘Encountering you is an essential part of your victim’s payment of their karmic debts brought over from previous lifetimes into this one. If this is not the case with one of the people you approach, we open their inner eyes and help them to recognise the intentions behind your advances. Yet, if someone is inexperienced enough to put their trust in a person they have never met personally and whom they do not know from Adam, they deserve what comes to them. Their own life’s experiences are going to teach them the invaluable lesson that, unless a somebody who enters their life has proved themselves as trustworthy in the course of many years, trusting them is a mistake. There is nothing wrong with making them. The most painful ones are never forgotten and therefore the best ones.
‘Everything that happens in your world is but a passing phase and part of someone’s life lessons and the balancing of their spiritual bank account. Nothing takes place perchance or is a coincidence. These things do not exist because all events are part of God’s plans of life, the great one for the development of the human race and the individual one for you and this particular lifetime. Should you be one of the before mentioned gold diggers of your world and you are reading this, the time may have come for the waking up of your spiritual nature from its slumbering state. In that case you are meant to start digging for gold that is much more precious than that which is available in earthly life and can be bought, sought and stolen. Golden nuggets of God’s sacred wisdom and truth are waiting to be discovered by you that will open the gates to your conscious awareness that you are an eternal being, who is part of God and can never die. No-one can or will take this kind of gold from you; it is yours forever.
‘Even though for a long time you were unaware of their presence, God and the Angels have always been with you, the same as everybody else. They are part of you and you are part of them. They could not leave you, even if they wanted to – not that they ever will. Because of this spiritually everything has to be for real and there is no point in faking or pretending anything. God and the Angels are the all-seeing eyes and all-hearing ears that swing into action when the time is right for the Universal laws to return to you the seeds that were sown by you, either earlier in your present lifetime or during previous ones. And that’s how in the fullness of time everybody receives their just desserts.
‘God and the Angels are constantly guiding and protecting each one of you against destroying the essence of your being, your spirit and soul. They have brought you to where you are now and it is they who have brought this to you. If you understand their message, reach out for them and ask for their assistance. It will never be denied to anyone. Upon request they are ready to show you ways how you, with the help of your own Christ Self, can redeem yourself and make good where previously you transgressed against those around you.
‘God and the Angels will never lead you astray or tell you something that is not true. They can be trusted implicitly. All you have to do is pay attention to what they are telling you through your inner guidance, the wise one or living God within, about the next step on your journey of leaving behind the darkness of being ignorant of God’s true nature and your own. The knowledge they are waiting to bring to every human being is sure to cure all of them of the nonsense of fearing God. Once you understand who and what God really is, nothing will ever stop you from loving Him/Her with every fibre of your being.
‘As you know by now, all characteristics and powers that are in God are also in every human being, if for a long time in seed form only. Even though many to this day believe that you are fallen Angels of some kind, this is by no means the case. It is merely that every one of you has to work their own way through the various stages of their earthly education. Religions have been excellent instruments for teaching you about God’s nature and your own during the evolutionary phase of getting to know the lowest and most depraved desires of humankind’s crude and unevolved nature of the early stages of its development.
‘Everything that to this day is happening in your world is a demonstration of how some people somewhere are still exploring the whole gamut of experiences that humankind’s earthly education requires at various stages of their development. This means that the highest hopes and aspirations of your Christ nature as well as the lowest drives and urges of its earthly counterpart, have to be experienced by every human being sometime. Be of good cheer because a high and holy destiny awaits all of you, without exception.
‘We cannot begin to describe the power and glory of the highest levels of life and the Angels and Masters around the throne of God. They cannot be expressed in earthly words but the more you work with the vibrations of the Universal Christ, with the help of the Christ Star, the better you will be able to perceive what is happening in those realms. Earthly words and images cannot describe them. You begin to understand them when, with the help of the spiritual knowledge you are finding along the pathway of your earthly existence, the world of your feelings is enriched by love and goodwill towards the siblinghood of the whole of humankind and everything that shares Mother Earth with you.
‘The most vital lesson of your curriculum in the school of earthly life is the one that teaches you to appreciate the siblinghood with all life in the whole of Creation. There is no other way humankind can return to the full consciousness of its oneness with the Great Father/Mother of all life and their only born Son/Daughter, the Universal Christ. For some time by now this has been unfolding through a great spiritual awakening that has been taking place on the Earth. This is constantly being speeded up by God and the Angels in charge of your world. The result is a rapid expansion of consciousness of the spiritual background of your present existence. ‘Peace on Earth and goodwill towards every form of life in the whole of Creation,’ is the Angelic message we are bringing you.
The Angelic hierarchy and the Masters around the Christ Circle or throne of God are the executors of the Divine great plan of life. They are responsible for the individual and collective evolutionary development, physically and spiritually, of every form of life that exists throughout the whole of the created world, including you and me. Assisted by countless numbers of spirit guides and helpers on the many different levels of life, these beings are the ones who are truly in charge of us and our world. And because they are as much part of us as we are part of them, none of us is ever truly alone. They are constantly with us and on the alert to assist whenever one of us is struggling with finding a solution for the problems that present themselves in our earthly existence. Because they are part of God, the same as every human being, they also are very powerful and wise. Their nature is love and those assigned to us and our world are totally and unconditionally devoted to their service to the Highest.
These spirit friends and helpers are the invisible eye that never sleeps. Spirit has no need for sleeping and resting, the way we do. Only physical bodies get tired and need sufficient rest to be refreshed and recharged. This is what happens each time we return to our true home in dreamtime. Every moment the invisible eyes are watching, observing and assessing what degree of spiritual awareness we have reached. It reveals itself through our actions and reactions in every one of our daily encounters.
Our spirit guides care for and look after every one of us. Their work consists of supporting us and providing us with the courage and strength we need to deal with the obstacles every earthling is bound to encounter from time to time on our pathway through life. Without these hurdles there would be no way of making the progress that can potentially be made. Removing them would stop the individual’s march forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life as well as that of our whole race.
Whenever difficult relationships and situations have to be dealt with, our spirit and soul enjoy the sense of achievement their earthly self feels for having resolved one of its outstanding issues. Besides, how much would we be able to learn if our problems were simply removed? God and the Angels communicate with us intuitively. They are the living God within, the inner teacher, through whose guidance the joy of discovering ever more of the essential truths God and about the processes of life is waiting in every human being.
When the time is right, it wakes from its slumber and stirs into action. Through the wisdom we then start to gain along the pathway of our earthly existence, we find a renewed understanding of the purpose and meaning of all life. With this our consciousness expands and our inner vision improves. The light of love that radiates from our heart into our world gradually grows brighter and our spirit/soul rejoices about its earthly self’s homecoming into its true nature.
A bit more growth takes place every time we come across another new nugget of God’s sacred wisdom and truth that our inner guidance declares to be worthy of becoming part of our truth by responding with: ‘Yes, this is true!’ The same happens each time we establish contact with the higher and highest levels of life. During the initial stages of our earthly education they are hidden from our view and knowledge. But as we move forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life, the vision of God’s great plan of life unfolds before our inner eyes and that not only in fleeting moments of recognition. In response spirit/soul spontaneously overflows with heartfelt praise and thanksgiving for the wisdom and love of the Great White Spirit, the Father/Mother of the whole of Creation.
The work of our spirit guides has but one purpose and that is helping us earthlings to find a better understanding of our present existence and discover the realms that lie behind and beyond it. Helpers on the lower levels at any given time are bringing us the parts of God’s light in the form of spiritual wisdom and truth that are revealed to them by the Angels and Masters on the highest level of life. All of them together have for a long time been toiling to provide us with an increasingly bright view of our existence. Their aim is to gradually eliminate the outdated dark one that left little or no room for hope and optimism that, if we behaved the right way in thoughts, words and actions, a better future would eventually be reached for every individual and our whole world.
Our spirit helpers’ main task is encouraging us to peer beyond the ends of our noses onto the distant horizons of the spirit realm, humankind’s true home. They come to tell us that the goal of every human being, who is presently taking part in earthly life, is to grow in wisdom and understanding. Through bringing forth, each from within the very core of their own being, the characteristics of their higher or Christ nature, with the passing of time we slowly but surely evolved into an ever more God-like being. To enable us to do our share of establishing God’s kingdom on the Earth, we need to develop the highest human qualities. Through wisely using them for the highest good and the greatest joy of all, instead of pursuing selfish aims, we then manifest the will and power of the Great Father as well as the wisdom and love of the Great Mother, right here and now.
The Universal laws cannot be turned off ever and even if it were possible, it would defeat the object of the whole enterprise. So let no-one run away with the idea that we have ever been allowed to do as we please in earthly life. Nothing could be further from the truth. Whatever is projected into our world by anyone must return to its sender in due course. And because that which is sent joins the stream of consciousness that matches its vibrations, this always happens in a somewhat strengthened form.
The illusion of getting away with things is necessary for the early stages of our earthly education. The Universal Forces then provide us with more or less whatever our hearts desire, but even only within reasonable boundaries. It most certainly has never been part of God’s great plan of life that this state of affairs should continue forever. Far from it! Now that the Aquarian Age is with us, this developmental phase has run its course and many of us have already moved into the next one.
Earthly life is just like any educational institution of our world. As soon as one lesson has been learnt satisfactorily, its scholars are required to move on. Depleting our planet of too many of its precious resources has been an essential part of our early curriculum. The second stage consists of assisting Mother Earth to restore, regenerate and heal herself. Those who have matured into spiritual adulthood, have no problems recognising what kind of damage was done to her in the past and the way many of our younger siblings still insist on continuing with such destructive habits. The way we react to their actions reveals to the wise ones in charge of us and our world how well we are handling the work of being one of our planet’s guardians and safekeepers.
Once our planet’s transformation is complete, young and inexperienced spirit/souls who are unready for getting on with this task will not be allowed to reincarnate onto the Earth. In the natural course of events they will in due course be removed from this plane and there is no need to worry about them. They too will be taken care of by reincarnating onto a much younger and less highly evolved planet, where their education of life in physicality continues. There they will be taking an active part in planet’s colonisation by acting as pioneers, wayfinders and trendsetters for even less highly evolved who are following behind. Read more about this with the help of the respective link below.
Angels are beings of light who are neither masculine nor feminine. They are androgynous, the same as our Creator and we are. On the inner level of life everybody is whole. The masculine outer and feminine inner in men and feminine outer and masculine inner in women have always been co-existing and working together, without the outer earthly self being consciously aware of it.
The Angels and Masters are a great force and each one of them has the power of appearing to us in a form that can be recognised by human beings, which allows us to connect with them. When our inner vision has opened sufficiently, we can see that Angels are beings who are not only filled with light but consist of it. Streams of light are flowing from their heads and shoulders that look like mighty wings, even though they are nothing of the kind. Fallen Angels never existed either. Read more about this by following the relevant link at the end.
The inner level of the whole of Creation, not merely our world, is spirit and consists of light. This realm is teeming with lifeforms that are invisible to ordinary earthly eyes. And with the passing of time every human being develops greater sensitivity to the world of spirit and its inhabitants. When climbing a mountain, we then sense the presence of the spirits who inhabit it. We respond to the energies of the spirits of the water element each time when we enjoy the sounds of the sea, the flowing of our rivers and the tumbling of the waterfalls. The time has also come for making friends with the Fire and Air elements just as much as the life-giving light and warmth of the Sun in the sky above us and the sound of wind, for example in the trees.
As God and the Angels are in control of the elements and are conducting them, we offer our thanks and praise to You, O Father/Mother of all life, for the elements and the way they are providing the sustenance for us and our world and every lifeform that shares it with us. They are the power of creation behind the miracle and wonder of a butterfly. Look at their beauty, the delicacy and colours of their wings. Even the tiniest wildflower by the roadside, for example a daisy, is nothing short of a wonder of creation. It is amazing what one sees when one examines it under a microscope. And yet, that is but one miniscule aspect of the beauty of the whole of God’s created world. This gives us a tiny bit of an idea of the countless wonders that are waiting to be discovered and explored by us when our development moves us onto the higher and eventually highest levels of life.
The Angels are the Master craftsmen who, with the help of creatures like the elementals, fairies and elves, who really exist in the spiritual background of our world, are working extremely hard by day and night to supply us with everything we need for our lifetimes on the Earth. In keeping with God’s great plan all of them are on the same evolutionary pathway as we are. Down to the tiniest details everything is created with the greatest love, care and attention to detail and every creation is a unique and precious work of art and a marvel of design. What right does anyone have to hurt and harm one of these master pieces?
The Great Father’s creative ideas are brought into manifestation by the Angels and their helpers wherever they are meant to appear in accordance with the great plan. This applies to earthly life as much as anywhere else in the whole of Creation. Everything that is created anywhere comes about through the will and power of the Father and the wisdom and love of the Great Mother, God and Goddess. The Mother decides where and when new worlds and their beings are going to be created and when the time has come for removing old ones. Included in this is the outer shell of every spirit/soul, their physical body. When another human child due to be born in our world, it is created by the Angels through earthly parents, who have agreed to act as parents for the coming lifetime. Our willingness lifts the status of these people into that of co-creators with God. On our own, i.e. without the help and will of God and the Angels, human beings are unable to create anything.
A new physical body is the vehicle the Angels very kindly put at our disposal at the beginning of each lifetime. And when the time has come for parting company with it and saying good-bye to earthly life once again, one of the Angels of Death takes us by the hand and returns us to our true home from which we emerge at the start of every earthly sojourn, the spirit world. This releases us into the greater freedom of this realm. The more highly evolved we become, the more we are able to reach the higher and eventually highest planes of life. This, however, can only turn into a reality for those who have mastered their earthly self’s desire nature.
During the early stages of our development our earthly minds have difficulties grasping the immense size and beauty of God’s great plan of life for the whole of Creation. But as we progress on the road of spiritual unfoldment, our understanding of God’s plan for the individual and collective future of our humankind grows. There will come a time when every human being will be capable of not only entering the heavenly realms but under the guidance and protection of the Angels take an active part in them.
Nowhere does our race’s utter powerlessness reveal itself more clearly than in the birth and death processes. Have a word with any couple who for years has been trying unsuccessfully to conceive. Ask them whose will alone can bring a child into being. And then go to a suicidal person who attempted half a dozen times to take their life by their own hands and yet was prevented from doing so by what appeared to be ‘circumstances beyond their control’. Ask them who they think is truly in charge of their life and whose will decides when the end of their present lifetime has come. Is it our will or the will of the Highest authorities of life, whatever you may call them?
Wise ones appreciate that everything that happens in earthly life is done through us, that at no stage are we in charge of the proceedings and that all we can do in any situations is to go with the flow of the events of our lives, safe in the knowledge that everything that happens is ultimately part of God’s plan for the evolutionary journey, our own, our world and the whole of Creation.
In the fullness of time, every earthling hands the reins of their whole being over to the Christ aspect of their nature, also known as the Highest or God Self. We are then no longer handicapped by the limited understanding of earthly life and our vibrations then allow us to gain access to the finer ethers that are the inner core of all life in physicality. Once we learn to delve deep into the silence in the depths of our own innermost being, we realise that the one thing we have always been yearning for is returning into the oneness with our Creator, the Great Father/Mother of all life.
We then realise that God’s will and power, wisdom and love have always been reaching and taking care of us. It brought us into our present incarnation and is sure to take us onward into experiencing ever higher levels of life. This phase of our development starts with learning to trust the inner guidance we receive intuitively from God and the Angels. Through our own experiences life teaches us to trust that it is safe to follow their advice wherever we go. And when we are doing this we are quite literally walking hand in hand with God and the Angels.
‘I am the light of the world,’ the Universal Christ together with the Angels and Masters around His/Her throne told us through the Jesus legend. ‘I am the light of wisdom and love, knowledge and truth that has always been showing the way for every human being how each can establish their own Kingdom of God, wherever you may find yourself. One day, dear Friend, if you do not know it already, you too will know that this is the truth and nothing but the truth. But it is the kind of truth that cannot be comprehended fully with earthly minds, only with the Divine mind of love which all of us are in the process of developing.
Yes, it’s true. There is as much a time and a place for us while we are taking part in earthly life as well as when, at the end of our present lifetime, we say good-bye to it and leave our physical bodies and every other earthly possession behind. We then go to the place the song describes with peace and quiet and the open air of the greater freedom of the spirit realm, from which we emerge at the beginning of each new lifetime.
We are eternal beings who will never die and vast numbers of those who are presently taking part in earthly life have walked the above described way many times before. We don’t remember anything about these events for the simple reason that the love and wisdom of the Great Mother of all life has provided that the world of spirit, the home of Her human children of the Earth, should be the place where each one of them goes to rest and recuperate from the inevitable tests and trials, ups and downs of their earthly education.
Because the lower selves are left behind each time we return to the spirit realm, at the latest soon after our arrival there we once again become aware of our true nature and start behaving in keeping with it. That’s why in this place everybody exists together in peace and harmony. Each goes about attending to some more lessons in the halls of learning.
During our times on the Earth, to protect us against ourselves, a veil of consciousness separates us from the memories of past lifetimes and in particular of the moments when we shed our outer shell, the physical body. We would be unable to cope with consciously being aware which way it happened in some of our previous lifetimes. If we had conscious access to many of the things we have been up to in the course of our long evolutionary journey, we would find it impossible to live with ourselves.
On some occasions we could have died hanging on the end of a rope, being burnt at the stakes, beheaded, drowned or starved to death, shipwrecked on a desert island without any hope of ever being saved. The list is endless. When you think of what is known of human history, you will realise that old souls must have taken part in experiences like these time and time again. To create the necessary balance, sometimes we found ourselves on the giving end of creating misery and suffering for others and at other times we received this kind of treatment.
The soul is the storehouse for the memories of every experience of all our earthly lifetimes. In particular this applies to the thinking and behaviour patterns we develop along the way. Through our soul memories they accompany us into each new lifetime and from the subconscious level they immediately start to influence the way we behave, feel and experience ourselves and our present existence. In our thoughts, words and actions the memories of our soul do so beneficially or detrimentally, as the case may be. Everything depends on how we developed in previous lifetimes. The soul and its memories are part of our physical body’s waterbody and may try to reveal themselves to us through illnesses and what only seemingly are irrational and unfounded fears and anxieties.
The Angels are saying: ‘There really is that kind of a place somewhere and we want to take you to it in your imagination. Let us show you how, in the not too distant future, this kind of life will also have become a reality on the Earth. Walk hand in hand with us, follow us and trust that we know the way. This you do when you keep on keeping on and pay attention to your inner guidance. That’s how we can tell you in any given moment what’s right and wrong for you, and in the whole of Eternity you will never be lost.’
Bad things happen to good people because we are part of God and co-creators with God, each one of us is personally responsible for themselves and every one of their thoughts, words and actions. And because we and our world are as much affected by the Universal laws as the rest of God’s Creation, whatever any one of us sends out into the Universe in some form inevitably finds its way back to its sender. With the unerring ability of a boomerang it does this either in this lifetime or in a future one. The awareness of this puts the solution to all problems, our own and those of our world, into everybody’s own hands. If we dream of a more peaceful world, it’s up to us to think of ways of making it so by living in peace and harmony with the Divine laws.
If there was no great plan of life and no Universal laws to which everything in the whole of Creation is subject, there might not be any reason why bad things would happen to good people. But there is a plan, a great one as well as one for each individual life, and the laws exist. Denying their presence or merely being unaware of it cannot make them disappear. The Universal law of Karma, also known as the law of cause of effect, is the reason why bad things may have to happen to even the best behaved people from time to time. To ensure that nothing in the whole of Creation can ever be truly lost in the vastness of space and time, this law decrees that everything must eventually find its way back to where it came from.
The law of Karma is part of another Universal law that everything in the whole of Creation has to balance. This is quite clearly shown by the opposing forces of masculine and feminine, positive and negative, darkness and light, and so forth that are at work everywhere within us and our world. This is how it comes about that, if in our present lifetime we are an exceptionally good person, it is highly likely that in previous lives we were someone extremely bad and evil. Each time we arrive for rest and recuperation in the world of light, hand in hand with the wise ones in charge of us, we are presented with images of the experiences of past lifetimes. No-one forces us to return to earthly life, but to create the required balance in the greater scheme of life and our spiritual bankbook, together with the wise ones we ourselves decide and if we choose another one, it is up to us what kind of a life it should be.
There are people who pride themselves to be among the nastiest and most unpleasant people around. Those who fall into this trap, without fail will have to reap the fruits of the seeds they are presently sowing in one of their coming lifetimes. The things they are dishing out now as sure as houses will then be returning to them in the form of being treated in offending and painful ways by others. Aware that this is the case, wise ones refuse to grumble when this happens to them or any other kind of misfortune befalls them. They go with the flow and do their best, never giving up hope that their karmic debts will eventually have been paid.
If health problems of some kind are part of their lesson, wise ones trust that with the help and will of God and the Angels all conditions really can be healed. They live in hope that one fine day they will be living proof of this. Aware that they themselves created the underlying cause of their condition in previous lifetimes, they feel no need to complain and ask: ‘Why me?’ Instead, they first forgive those who trespass against them and then they also forgive themselves for having created the necessity for this kind of lesson. By going with the flow, accepting without complaint what comes whilst continuing to be good, kind and loving, regardless of the events in their lives, such people redeem themselves and the balance of their spiritual account is restored.
Everything in the whole of Creation, including you and me, is always at its highest evolutionary point. At any given moment, our consciousness consists of the sum total of all the wisdom we have gained from every one of our experiences and that in the course of innumerable lifetimes. The way we perceive ourselves, our inner motivations, desires and our existence within the greater scheme of life depends on the degree of understanding we have reached. This also applies to our beliefs, spiritual, religious and whatever else and it is up to us individually to come to terms with and make peace with our existence within the Universe.
All of us have been placed in earthly life to evolve into seekers of wisdom and the truth about everything. Nobody can force us to believe anything. We are free to choose what we can and wish to believe. But how can we tell the truth from a lie? Because at all times our inner self is giving us feedback of some kind, it’s really quite simple. Whenever something we read or hear is true, it tells us through feelings that rise from the innermost core of our being and say: ‘Yes, this makes sense. It is true.’ or ‘No, this is nonsense. Leave it alone, it’s not for you.’
We are here together so we can assist each other to find our own way back to our Source, to God – whoever and whatever that may mean to you at present. We have come to develop a philosophy of life that is uniquely our own and can sustain and support us through the inevitable ups and downs that are an essential part of every soul’s life earthly education. My writings are attempts at helping you to find yours, so that you may grow into a healer and lightbringer in your own right. Every one of us is eventually called upon by the Highest Forces to become one of those. Each has to do their share of building the bridges that consist of the wisdom and knowledge the Aquarian Age is bringing us, to replace that which is outdated and no longer valid in the old religions and belief systems of our world.
For wise ones arguing, quarrelling and fighting over the beliefs that have been and to this in some places still are separating one part of the human race from another, is definitely the way of the past. The rest of our world will soon follow, of that I am sure. Bearing in mind that thinking is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation and that our thoughts have the power to constantly create and re-create our reality, let’s sow good seeds by frequently thinking of and dreaming about Mother Earth as a place where all live and work peacefully and harmoniously together.
Wise ones don’t reject any of the existing belief systems. Instead, they embrace them all and go in search of the golden nuggets of wisdom and truth which each one of them has always contained, in one form or another. The peacemakers of our world are those who prefer focussing on that which we all have in common and what unites us, to the things that have kept us away from each other for far too long.
But what happens when our heart is filled with good intentions and we try to do something good for someone and they reject it out of hand, maybe throw it back at us in an act of anger and aggression? As long as we do our best in all sincerity and with love and compassion for the other one rather than trying to gain some kind of advantage for ourselves, our vibrations in some mysterious way penetrate the aura of the other one. No kindness or love is ever lost and there will probably come a moment when what we said or did comes to their mind and they begin to understand and in this way it will be doing them some good, after all.
We are creative beings, co-creators with God and constantly in the process of bringing something into being. Anything we send out into our world in thought, word and deed is a creative force that is alive and will act in the fullness time, the good and positive, as well as the bad and negative, by returning to us. That’s how it comes about that any kind of bread and nourishment we cast on the waters of life eventually returns to us in some form, though hardly ever through the person who received our gift.
The Law Of Karma
One of the best explanations of the law of Karma that ever came my way was James van Praagh’s notes in ‘Reaching to Heaven – a Spiritual Journey through Life and Death’. The following is the essence of what he writes on page 78 under the heading ‘Karma’: We are all familiar with the saying: ‘What goes around comes around.’ This is another way of describing the Universal law known as Karma. The word Karma is Sanskrit in origin and literally means ‘action’. This law consists of constantly renewing cycles of cause and effect. Simply put, we are going through our earthly lifetimes either sowing seeds or throwing rocks. For as long as insist on doing this, in coming lifetimes we have to reap the effects of everything we thus created, good and bad alike.
‘These cycles of cause and effect extend through many lifetimes. The result of our actions today may not necessarily return to us in our present lifetime, but it is sure to do so eventually. Think of Karma as paying of debts and of balancing spiritual bank accounts, not overlooking that we also reap the rewards for the things we did well in other lifetimes. Karma creates opportunities for all human souls to grow and progress. Once we have learnt that every one of our thoughts, words and actions has consequences, the Universe lays the tool for creating nothing but good and positive Karma for future lifetimes into everybody’s own hands.’
This is how the law of Karma is constantly at work throughout all worlds, including ours. And because it was designed by God’s wisdom and love, it benefits us and our world in many different ways. Whatever it brings to anyone has nothing to do with punishment, retribution and vengeance. Things of this nature have no place in the language of love, but belong to the experience world of the lower and lowest development stages of earthly life. During the middle phase we become more and more occupied with issues like redemption and forgiveness. In the highest part we are only interested in expressing and manifesting love’s purest manifestations and doing our share of establishing God’s kingdom on the Earth.
When looked at from the right angle, it can be clearly seen that the law of Karma is one of opportunities of many different kinds. For example: for redeeming ourselves and learning something new and doing better in this lifetime than we did in previous ones, whilst we were still ignorant of the law of Karma and its effects. The experiences it brings force us to tap into our inner resources. This helps our consciousness to expand and we grow stronger and wiser all the time, until eventually we are ready to bring forth the best that is within us. Through unselfishly working for the good of all, we ourselves are not only evolving and moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life, our whole race and world are progressing with us.
Through the Jesus legend the Universal Christ Spirit tells us in St. John 8:31-32: ‘If you abide by My word, you are truly My disciples. And you will know the truth and that very truth will make you free.’ What a long time it has taken humankind to find out that in truth the figure of the Master Jesus is a symbolism for humankind’s higher Christ nature. When we finally grasp this concept, it does no longer surprise us that Jesus can neither save nor redeem us. We know that, if he really had walked the Earth, he would not have wanted to mislead and hide the truth from us that no-one can do this except we ourselves.
There is no doubt in my mind that the Jesus story was inspired by the Angels and that it was specifically designed for humankind’s limited understanding during its spiritual infancy and childhood. Wise ones, who have matured into adulthood, know that negative Karma only returns to us when we have become sufficiently strong to deal with it. They accept the responsibility for themselves and every one of their thoughts, words and actions and thus take the burden of the cross of their existence off anyone else’s back, including Jesus’. Shouldering it themselves, such wise ones do all they can to save and redeem themselves. They are doing this happily because they know that the same then happens for our whole world, and that much spiritual progress is possible for those who are doing this.
Some people, when they become aware of these things and reflect on their lives so far, may be disappointed about what to them now seems like negative reactions to Karmic events. This gives them a feeling as if they had probably not been strong enough to handle the test that came their way they should have done. At first we all find it hard to believe that it is us who, during our times of rest and recuperation in the world of spirit at the end of each lifetime, together with the wise ones in charge of us, decide what kind of pathway would most benefit our spiritual development in the coming lifetime. But because the wise ones know us and our pathway much better than we do, even if we feel ready to tackle some of our Karmic debts and hope to be sufficiently strong to redeem them, they may tell us whether this is advisable. If they agree, we go ahead and apply for our next lifetime.
Any kind of earthly test and trial is never sent as some kind of punishment, even though it often feels like that. Invariably they are intended to assist us with bringing forth and developing our inner strength and to help us grow in wisdom and understanding. Each time we emerge from another one, that’s what we have done – even though we are likely to be unaware of it. So, whenever the going gets tough, it’s good to remind ourselves that no-one forced us into this lifetime and that having another go was our own free decision.
During the periods spent in the world of light we are aware that in truth we are a spirit and soul, who wishes to evolve and grow through consciousness expanding experiences. Knowing that we are only ever temporary residents on the Earth plane makes our choice of wanting to move forwards and get on with our development an easy one. And every one of us eventually reaches the point when we mean it most sincerely each time we say: ‘May Thy will be mine and my will be Thine, so that everything unfolds in keeping with Thy will and wishes.’ Through this our will aligns itself with that of the Highest and that takes apart the bars of the cross of our lower earthly personality, which we have carried long enough.
The cross’s horizontal bar represents our will and the vertical one the will of God. Saying ‘Thy will and not mine’ lays them side by side and shows that we trust the living God within, our intuition, to always show us the right way and ask us only to do that which is good, right and beautiful. And as every one of our thoughts, words and actions creates some kind of Karma, this is the best protection against bringing about more of the negative variety.
