Take These Broken Wings

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again,
And learn to live so free.
And when we hear the voices sing,
The book of love will open up
And let us in.

From the Eighties Song
By Mr. Mister

O Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
Take the broken wings of every human soul
And the soul of our whole world.
Lift us on the mighty wings of Your sacred
Wisdom and Truth, which now flows directly
From Your loving heart into the hearts and souls
Of those who are ready to receive it,
Under Your guidance and protection
And in accordance with Your will and wishes,
Can act as Your channels for the
Blessing and healing power of Your love.

Amen

Hello Paul:

     I will probably hate myself for this pun, but I have to do it.....as far as Food For Thought goes.....you said a mouthful!

     I agree with you.

 

     Now, about flying.....yes, we all can! As Dupont says, better living through chemistry!!

 

Forgive me for I know not what I do,

Marty and LuckyLee (my trip guide

Reflections On Hope

Hope is an inner knowingness
That regardless of all the things that are still happening in it,
The life we have been given is a good one.
It is trusting that the Love that has always guided and protected
Each one of us, in the course of many lifetimes,
Will forever continue to do so.
Because this love is omniscient, omnipotent and present
In everything that is in the whole of Creation,
There is every reason why we should trust it that,
In Its own time, not ours,
It can and indeed will help us to heal not only
Our most difficult situations and relationships,
But also whole worlds and everything in them.

Hope springs eternally from the fountain of the Great White Spirit.
Father/Mother of all life.
It is the inner guidance every soul receives,
No matter how closed off they still are to these things,
From the Christ Spirit within, their Highest of God Self,
In whom we are all one.

Until the small earthly self finally conquers its self-imposed
Limitations and succeeds,
The living Christ within encourages it to try, try again –
Many times against all the odds.
It constantly coaxes each one of us on
Into new understanding and wisdom that can
And indeed is meant to be found even in
The most harrowing experiences.

Every human souls contains this part that endows us
With the courage, strength and determination to start again,
Even after total personal and collective breakdowns,
So we can rebuild ourselves and our world,
And find healing for both their inner and outer wounds,
Safe in the intuitive knowledge that better things will come,
If we but persevere.

Hope is the Great Spirit’s eternal gift to humankind
That through famine, wars, disasters and all others types
Of destruction moves us and our world inexorable
Onwards and upwards onto ever higher levels of
Learning, each through their own experiences.

Hope is one of the Universe’s gifts, maybe the finest,
Because it enables us to trust that, in truth,
The moment of physical death is not an ending,
But a new beginning and a release into
The greater freedom of our true home, the world of light,
Where those who have gone before us
Are waiting to welcome us.

Aquarius

I hope the last male white rhino in the wild currently with an armed guard against poachers can find a mate ...

I hope that we can find a cure for all human ills

I hope that we do not drill off the Arctic shelf any time soon

I hope that such things as love and forgiveness exist

I hope that I do not have to hold my breath till any of the above happens

Amen, to all those things, dear Paul.

Let's never forget that with the help and the will of God and the Angels all things are possible,

including these.

Discernment

The quality humankind most urgently needs to develop is discernment. It is one of your first and foremost requirements, for without it you will never be able to tell a truth from a lie. I am the only one who can help you find and develop it. I am the small still voice of your conscience that speaks to you, through the world of your feelings, from within your deepest and innermost being. If you listen carefully to My guidance, you will have no difficulties integrating this precious faculty into your character make-up.

The more highly evolved you become and the characteristics of your Christ nature come to the fore of your consciousness, the more often you will feel an inner emptiness and a hunger and thirst for something of which you cannot really tell what it is you are longing for. The lying and cheating, violence, crime and wars in the world around irritate and annoy you ever more strongly. They sicken you and you yearn for a better world where these things do not exist. Occurrences of this nature are signs that your higher nature is in the process of breaking through the earthly self’s protective shell of ignorance. You realise that for you the time has come to peer beneath the surface of life and look within for a better understanding of its processes.

By now you know that the world around you acts like a mirror and that it reflects back to you what you are on the inner level of life, that which is hidden from your view in your subconscious. You realise that for some time you have been surrounded by people who relish in lying and cheating, while you long for honesty and truth in your life, but seem to be unable to find it. ‘Why should this be so,’ you ask yourself one fine day and I, your inner guidance, reply: ‘The only way humankind can learn how to appreciate the value of anything in their lives is and always has been through the lack and absence of it.

Through experiencing the suffering other people’s falsehoods, lies and cheating are causing you, there eventually comes the moment when you decide – consciously or unconsciously – that you do not wish to be like them and that from now on you will always do your best to be honest and upright in all your dealings. All of you are magnetic beings who can only draw into their orbit that which you are yourself. And so, as you grow into an honest and truthful person yourself, you draw others of the same calibre towards you. People trust you because they soon get to know and love your honesty and integrity. You are finding truth because those in charge of you on the higher and highest levels of life know that you can be entrusted with handling it in the right way by unselfishly sharing it with those around you.

Growing ever richer in spirit, it is coming clearer in your mind why it was necessary that you and your world first had to become poor in spirit? My message to all of you, My beloved children of the Earth, whether you are spiritually awake or still slumbering, is: blessed are the poor in spirit, for they shall go in search of truth. When they look for it, they will find it, not in big books – new or ancient – but each within their own heart, the only place on Earth where My eternal truths are known. What they find there will help them cleanse their consciousness of the accumulated false beliefs and misinterpretations of past ages. Their spirit will then be pure again and they shall see God. They shall recognise Me in themselves and others, as well as in everything that is in their world and all worlds. They shall find understanding and through this healing and peace will come to them and also to their world. I am the truth and I alone can set each one of you free.

All I ask from you is that you trustingly turn to Me and ask for My guidance and protection, so I can show you how to re-connect with Me. Rest safely in the knowledge that no outside forces are involved in this process. All you have to do is follow the feelings that rise from your very own innermost being, your heart. When your earthly mind willingly surrenders itself to Me, the mind of the Highest, and becomes My faithful servant, I can begin to use you as a channel for my power and love to flow. This is how slowly but surely your super-conscious faculties develop, until I, the Christ Spirit, have taken over your whole being.

As our two streams of consciousness merge, all remaining shadows of the past and your earthly ego structure dissolves. Each one of you eventually grows into such a channel, My lamb of God, who is coming home into the oneness with Me and all life. The long awaited time when the earthly and Heavenly twins are re-uniting and working together again, instead of against each other, is here. There is nothing to fear and every reason to rejoice.

As I have created you in My image, whatever is in Me is also in you. In Matthew 5:48 I told you: ‘Therefore become perfect, just as your Father in Heaven is perfect.’ Over the ages, this too has been much misunderstood, but I am telling you now that the perfection you are seeking is wholeness, which means the blending of all aspects of your nature into one. To this end, you need to take possession of everything that is within you, your femininity and masculinity, your earthly self and your God or Highest Self. Everybody has to take charge of these parts and bring them together. When they are functioning as one you have become perfect like Me, whole, healed and holy.

All the religions your world has ever known were inspired by Me and came directly from My mind. Let no-one think otherwise. In the beginning they were pure and unadulterated, but as time went by My wisdom became more and more distorted by the desires of humankind’s lower earthly nature and mind. As one generation and one lifetime of yours followed the other, humankind’s earthly mind gradually filled to such an extent with fears and anxieties that the meaning of My original teachings eventually almost entirely lost the power they once had over people’s hearts and souls. My wisdom, love and power are within each one of you. But, if they are used without love in your heart and for selfish purposes, they turn against you and destroy you and that which you intended to create. The days of the patriarchy have shown you how, when these powers are stimulated to bring out the worst in humankind, they are capable of turning into the greatest evil and enemy your world has ever known.

The only way of counteracting this is through love, for love is the key to unlocking all doors, including this one. No soul can force its way into Heaven, the oneness with Me. The door to Me can only be unlocked by love. The greatest intellects of your world will never solve My mysteries, but they can certainly go a long way towards destroying them – for themselves and those who listen to and believe their words, rather than Mine. The humble, kind and loving human heart alone can unravel the mysteries of love, life and Me. And that is why at some stage in each soul’s evolutionary development the Divine spark that dwells in every heart, the Christ-child, stirs within you and yearns to come alive. This it can only do through love.

The Be-Attitudes For The Aquarian Age

Blessed are those who can see the funny side of things,
Refuse to take themselves too seriously
And laugh about themselves,
For they shall have endless fun.

Blessed are those who can laugh with people, rather than at them,
For their lives will be filled with laughter and smiles.

Blessed are those who can see beyond the ends of their noses
Into the higher and highest realities of life,
For they shall go far.

Blessed are those who can smile in adversity and forget to frown,
For the light of the Highest Star lights their path.

Blessed are those who can tell a mountain from a molehill,
For they shall be spared many troubles.

Blessed are those who take responsibility for their mistakes
And learn from them rather than looking
For scapegoats and someone to blame,
For they shall become wise.

Blessed are those who know when it is better
To shut up and listen,
For they shall learn many new things.

Blessed are those who are attentive to the needs of others
And do not think of themselves as indispensable,
For they are the sowers of joy.

Blessed are those who take small things seriously
And approach large issues sensibly and peacefully,
For they shall climb high on the evolutionary ladder of life.

Blessed are those who send good, kind and loving
Thoughts and actions only into life,
For nothing but the same shall return to them in due course.

Blessed are those who can keep quiet and smile,
Even when someone cuts them off in mid-sentence,
Contradicts them and/or treads on their toes,
For this is how they prove that they
Are already dwelling in the presence of
The One light that unites us all.

Blessed are those who look for the good
In all people and situations,
For they are on the upwards winding spiral of life,
While those who focus on the negative aspects
Are sucked ever deeper on the downwards spiral
Into depression and thoughts of how to escape this world
And ultimately suicide.

Blessed are those who recognise Me, the living God within,
In everything that is, including themselves,
For they have gained access to My unconditional and everlasting
Wisdom and truth, light and love.

Blessed most of all are those who leave complaining
About the things that still appear to be
Negative, wrong and ugly in your world
To the people who do not yet know any better.
Trusting that in My time, not humankind’s,
All wrongs will be righted, crooked corners be straightened
And ugly things made beautiful,
These wise ones are doing their share
Of bringing these things into being.

Aware that their thoughts create the realities of their lives,
They focus on that which is
Positive, good and beautiful on the Earth.
They never cease to wonder
About how much of it there is already,
And they will never know how much closer
To My loving heart they are than they can imagine.

Anon.

Hello Paul and Aul: 

 

I hope the last male white rhino in the wild currently with an armed guard against poachers can find a mate ... as Jeff Goldblum said in the flic Jurassic Park, "life finds a way". I'd like to think this is so, but I truly think that that white rhino is in for a lonely Saturday night.  

I hope that we can find a cure for all human ills.......quite doable right now and we should do it contrary to God trying to teach us a lesson that no one seems to be benefitting from.

I hope that we do not drill off the Arctic shelf any time soon .......as my comment about Aqua's UniChrist indicated about both Uni and O'Alabama,  Baroque Obama has betrayed the Greenies and given the thumbs up to drill the Arctic shelf dry. So we have black polar bears, is that such a bad thing? Karma says they deserve it, but I say it is an unforgivable crime, Karma be darned.

I hope that such things as love and forgiveness exist.....they do in isolated places like distant worlds and you and the TinMan's heart.

I hope that I do not have to hold my breath till any of the above happens......don't turn blue my friend, for I intend to go kicking and screaming into the next, trying to "make it better". If only all the Gods and Spirits and Mothers and Fathers and guides and lodges that we read about here would lend a hand.....but I know now that that ain't gonna happen.

Words are pretty but action is what is truly profound.

 

I say we deworm AlphaO and we all get down to saving the world!

 

Peace Be With You.....Pax Vobiscum for Ophi,

Marty and LuckyLee

Hello Marty,

If we do not experience these things in our present lifetime, we shall in the next one.

Therefore, let's keep on keeping on and doing what we can to make our world a better place for all,

to the best of our abilities.

Mother Earth Sees Herself

Mother Earth sees herself through our eyes.
She dances with our senses,
To each new day’s surprise.
The rainbow of existence says:
‘Time for waking up and becoming the real you.’
Delicately conscious and mindfully awake,
For life just is.

Life is like the Earth herself:
Never empty, never full
And never too much.
Never too much beauty or love,
Or too much life to discover the real you,
As a beloved child of the Universe,
Whose true nature is love and who has the right
To find happiness and fulfilment,
And to love and be loved.

We are the living and beating
Heart of the whole of the Creation.
The Earth we walk upon and the Sun that shines upon us,
Mother Earth and Father Sun,
Are physical manifestations of the Great Mother/Father of all life,
Who are experiencing themselves through us.
And it is our loving devotion for the life
Our Creator has given to us,
Which blesses and heals all parts of it into one.
The illusion of separateness dissolves
And we are again one with all life and lifeforms.

Anon.

And what if the next lifetimes were happening now, all around us ... ?

In eternal perpetuity until and unless we learn how to step off?

Then again, is stepping off, stepping in ....?!

Hmmmm, Ophiucus,

Other people's no doubt, but not our own.

The way I understand it, we only step off the evolutionary spiral of development on the Earth plane when its environment can no longer teach us anything. And I don't believe that we in our present existence can tell whether that purpose has been achieved or not.

What's your view?

Bridges Between Heaven And Earth
 
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.
 
Our Mother, The Earth
Praise be to You, O Great White Spirit,
Father/Mother of all life.
Mother Earth is our sister, who carries us in kindness
And supports us with her strength.
Her beauty is a reflection of Your love
And we thank you for allowing us to share
In the abundance of her many gifts,
Like the trees, fruits, flowers and meadows.
 
Thank You, O Father/Mother,
For giving us firm ground to walk on,
Fruit that grows for us,
Flowers to please us,
And the shade of trees for resting beneath.
 
The Earth is Yours.
She is our home but for a time.
You have given her to us,
So that we should ‘build on her and care for her’.
(1 Moses 2, 15)
Thank You, beloved Father/Mother.
 
St. Francis of Assisi

I Asked And I Was Given

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve.
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health, that I might do greater things.
I was given infirmity, that I might grow in understanding
And become a better human being through bringing forth from within
The Divine qualities of kindness and compassion with all life.

I asked for riches, that I might be happy.
I was given poverty, that I might become wise.
I asked for power, that I might be praised by people.
I was given weakness, that I might feel my need for God.
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life.
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I really needed.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
And my life is now filled with blessings.

Okay, I'm ready, pack me off to Bedlam.....I will probably find some sense and order there.

Affirmations

Be creative and as you move through your life, make up new affirmations that are in keeping with your needs. Here are a few examples to help you on the way:

Thy will be done this day and always. Today is a day of completion and healing and I give thanks for this perfect day. Miracle now follows miracle and wonders shall never cease.

Divine love floods my consciousness with perfect health, happiness and wellbeing. Every cell and atom in my whole being is filled with light and heals in perfect ways.

I cast all my burdens on the Christ within and I go free to love and serve the Great White Spirit in this day and always.

And I am surrounded by and filled with the White Light of the Christ; no negativity can penetrate my consciousness.

And I walk in the Light of the Christ and all my fears melt away and nothing opposes my highest good and my greatest joy.

There is no loss of memory in the Divine Mind; therefore, I recollect everything I should remember and forget the things that no longer serve my highest good and my greatest joy.

I see clearly the perfect plan of my life. Divine enthusiasm fires me now and helps me to fulfil my destiny.

With the crystal clear vision of the Spirit I see the open road. There are no obstacles on my pathway and I see miracles and wonders come to pass at all times.

The walls of all my fears and anxieties are crumbling away and I enter into my Promised Land of total and unconditional faith, trust and love, and re-enter the state of Paradise, of oneness with God and all life, that is my birthright.

And my lamps are filled with the oil of total faith, trust and fulfilment.

My ears are the ears of the Great Spirit. The radiance of the Christ Star, the Universal Christ, fills my whole being and – if our hearing is troublesome – streams through my hearing and restores it to normal and healthy functioning. I lovingly listen to the voice of my intuition and follow its wisdom without hesitation. I clearly hear the Universe’s glad tidings of great joy, peace on Earth and the healing of all life.

Thou in me art Inspiration, Revelation and Illumination.
Nothing is too good to be true.
Nothing is too wonderful to happen.
And nothing is too good to last.
Amen

mruppert - 5/17/2015 8:39 PM Oh Aqua, So a physically weak, infirm, poor, low self-esteemed, greedy person has a life filled to the brim of the rim full of blessings. . . .

‘The most beautiful people are those who have experienced defeat, suffering, struggle and loss and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Such things do not just happen, they can only grow from within.’ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Mysterious Illnesses

Polly Berrien Berends writes: ‘Everything that happens to you is your teacher. The secret is to learn to sit at the feet of your own life and be taught by it. Everything that happens is either a blessing which is also a lesson, or a lesson which is also a blessing.’

I could not agree more. My own life’s experiences have taught me that healing comes to human souls mostly through finding a better perception of their pathway through their present lifetime and the main lessons they have come to learn. To my mind, that is every soul’s first and most important requirement if we wish to make some sense of the vast amounts of suffering that have to be endured on the Earth plane. Yearning for more understanding is very much part of humankind’s nature. To help us find it the Universe places one of its finest tools, astrology, into everybody’s own hands; that’s why we shall be wielding it to our heart’s delight.

At the beginning of the Aquarian Age, mysterious afflictions of mind, body and spirit abound. Among them are mental illnesses, especially schizophrenia, ME, various types of eating disorders and various types of breakdown. The cause of all dis-eases is a lack of ease, i.e. harmony, between the patient’s earthly being and its counterpart, the Highest or God Self. Each one is a signal that the former fails to understand the needs of the latter.

In ‘Investigating The Spiritual Background Of Eating Disorders’ and ‘The Spiritual Background Of Depression And Suicide’you can join me and take a closer look at these two aspects of our human predicament, which by probably are the most common complaints of the Western World. With the help of astrology I am attempting to shed some light into the darkness of ignorance that to this day surrounds these two corners of the suffering scene of our world.

Human beings are complex creatures and all of us are many-faceted jewels. I believe that, when one of us becomes ill, no stone should be left unturned to find the true cause of our problems, which in my view is invariably of a spiritual nature. Presently, there are many very old souls on the Earth plane, who have been recycled time and again. Because of this, to me, the most important and also interesting aspect is bearing in mind the possibility that the explanation for our present difficulties is likely to be found in the negative and destructive thinking and behaviour patterns we developed in previous lifetimes. We have brought them with us this time round so that they can be changed into more positive and constructive ones.

It seems to me that in spite of all the medical progress our world has made up to now, no-one understands a great deal of what goes on inside our physical bodies on the spiritual level. Conventional medicine cannot come up with the answers we are seeking, for as long as it continues to insist on looking at and treating the outer manifestations of ailments, instead of searching for the underlying emotional and spiritual issues, which are the true cause of our suffering, so they can be resolved at last.

As mentioned elsewhere, whenever something goes wrong with our physical bodies, it is always an indication that our soul is crying at us: ‘Look at me, heal me and comfort me!’ The same as in other aspects of our lives, there is no magic wand anyone can wave to make our troubles simply disappear. As that would not help anyone’s spiritual growth, it has been decreed by the Highest for good and wise reasons that we ourselves have to go in search of healing.

Dear Aquarius

Yet surely mental illness has been around for a long time has it not, but formerly referred to as 'possession'; precursors to such debilitating illnesses as ME were such things as, 'nervous exhuastion', etc?

For example Simone Weil, the great French mystic died in some way connected with an eating 'choice', if not 'disorder'

I am just not sure how you can thus equate new perceptions of serious illnesses and conditions with the 'Aquarian Age'.

As I intimated before, using as the litmus test, 'our inner guidance', can be an issue because our respective inner guidance may have differences: some that lead to serious choices (like dear Simone's)

Blessings
Paul

Hello Aquarius

Going back to your reply to mine earlier here, one of my views is that modern developments in quantum physics and mechanics (Alpha + Omega might have some thoughts about this) and the idea of the multiverse are in some senses rediscoveries of Jesus' New Testament proposition that,

"In my Father's House are many mansions"

which in itself is also an echo of ancient Vedic cosmology.

So I suspect that the other worlds are accessible to us through meditation and prayer.

As you intimate in some of your other writings, how we limit our possibilities is in some degree up to us ...

Dear Ophiucus,

How right you are! I believe that the whole of Creation is teaming with life that to this day is invisible to earthly eyes. And yes, there are a great many mansions – maybe millions of them, all waiting to be discovered and explored by us. What an exciting thought!

Perceiving the matter from the spiritual viewpoint, this is very plausible and when one thinks about it, it just cannot be any other way. Many of earthlings think of themselves as incredibly clever, when in their present state of development they actually know and understand very little of the true realities of life and that which takes place behind the scenes. To my mind, this is by far the most important and also interesting part of life.

What’s your view?

With love – Aquarius

Letting Go Of The Rope

Learning To Trust

This is the story of a mountaineer who wanted the glory to himself by going alone up a mountain that was known as dangerous. One fine day he started his climb, when night time fell and he had not prepared himself for camping, he decided to keep going. The night fell with heaviness at the altitude the man had reached. His visibility was zero and everything seemed just black. As it was the time of the New Moon, the Moon was invisible and the stars were covered by clouds. As he was climbing a ridge at about one hundred meters from the top, he slipped and fell. Down and down he went. And all he could see were passing blotches of darkness and he had an awful feeling of being sucked up into gravity.

In the anguish of the following moments good and bad memories passed through the man’s mind, who by now was certain that he was going to die. But suddenly he felt a jolt that almost tore him in half. Like any good mountaineer he had staked himself to the mountain with a long rope, which he had tied round his waist. Hanging suspended in mid air, he shouted: ‘Help me God, please help me!’

To his surprise, with a deep voice the all-seeing eye and all-knowing One called from the Heavens: ‘What do you want from me?’

‘Save me.’

‘Do you really believe I can save you?’

‘Yes, I do.’

‘Then unhook the rope that is holding you up.’

Another moment of silence and stillness followed, during which the man only held tighter to his rope. The next day a rescue team found him, frozen to death and still clinging to his rope. Two feet off the ground.

In spite of the sad outcome of this tale, in truth it has a happy ending. The great and wise, all-loving and all-understanding White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, embraced the climber and sadly murmured: ‘Yet another one of My beloved children of the Earth, who has not yet learned to trust Me fully. Go, My dear Angel, take him back to his true home, the world of spirit. There let him rest for a good while, so he can recover from his ordeal. When he wakes, tell him that in the fullness of time, I shall grant him the gift of another lifetime in physicality with many more opportunities for learning to place all his faith in Me, the way I showed you in the legend of the Master Jesus.

‘All of you are on the Earth plane to evolve into masters of yourselves, of the ship of your life and ultimately your destiny, as demonstrated by the tale of the Master. As you know, masters cannot fall straight from the Heavens. Only through learning and growing each through their own experiences can your spiritual wisdom and understanding of life grow, and your consciousness expand until it has reached the state of mastership, which every soul finally has to achieve. Born in Heaven, a metaphor your world uses for the highest levels of life, initially your spirit is but a tiny spark of Me. From the safety of My sacred heart every one of you once began their descent into taking part in the experiences of Earth life. This is the only place where amends can eventually be made for any damage, pain and suffering you in your ignorance of your true nature once caused others and also yourself, and that in the course of many lifetimes.

‘Ultimately, all suffering of your world is self-inflicted through negative thinking patterns which led to outrageous behaviour in previous lifetimes. Because on the inner level all life is and there is no separation between anyone, whatever you do to somebody else, with good or bad intentions, in the final analysis you do to yourself. All your negative actions towards others also have to be experienced by you. Patiently enduring them is your redemption, which is sure to come either in your present lifetime or future ones.

‘For a long time your earthly self remains unaware of such things and suffers intensely from – unbeknown to itself – the results of its own actions. This is when your spirit and soul begin to nudge you, their earthly counterpart, and with feelings of yearning that awaken in you try to remind you of your true nature and home. Through your own suffering you get to know what pain feels like, and in your heart begin to stir the Divine sensations of compassion and love for the anguish, distress and torment you are starting to notice everywhere around you. This is a signal that the spark of the Christ Spirit in you is waking from its slumbers and starts to grow into a small flame of love.

‘Through loving service on the Earth plane the spark keeps on growing. By uniting itself ever more with the sacred fire of Mother Earth and Father Sun, it develops ever more into a radiant blaze in its own right. The heat of this spiritual fire is capable of burning away the accumulated emotional/spiritual dross of many lifetimes that has accumulated in your own consciousness and that of your whole world. Each one of the wise ones who choose to constantly work under My guidance and protection, hand in hand with the Angels, eventually turn into Masters and Christed ones.’

The Guardian Angel silently stood by the dead climber. It was waiting for the Angel of Death, who had appeared and gently and lovingly released the climber’s spirit and soul from the emptying shell of its physical body. Taking spirit and soul by the hand, the Angel safely returned them to their true home, the world of light. After a period of resting and receiving God’s healing energies through the Angels, the new arrival to this world realised to his/her greatest joy that the previous lifetime had taught him/her the most important lesson every human being learns in the end, namely that God and the Angels never ever leave any of us on their own. No matter what may ever happen to us on the Earth or any other part or level of God’s Creation, we shall always be guided, protected and safe.

And that is how all seemingly sad stories of Earth life come to their natural conclusion and have a happy ending. This applies to all walks of life and especially on the spiritual pathway, where we frequently feel ourselves like dangling on an all too fragile rope between life and death, and there is nothing for it but: learning to trust!

Thanks and praise be to You Great White Spirit, Father/Mother Creator and Your Angels for having ensured throughout the ages that we and our world shall forever rest securely in Your loving hands.

Amen
