I am crying from my soul as I write this. This news article of a mom murdering her 9 year old non-verbal son feels like an ache of grief in my soul. Yet, conversely, it is but a moment. I am reading a book about soulmates and how we continue to meet the same souls throughout our lives. It’s written by Brian Weiss who was a Yale trained MD at the time he introduced hypnosis to a woman with pervasive anxiety. She quickly recalled several of her past lives and by processing each one found the Dr. to be her teacher in each. They mutually realized the role we play in each other’s lives in a spiritual sense.
An excerpt reads: “Humans always think of themselves as the only beings. This is not the case. There are many worlds and many dimensions. Many, many more souls than there are physical containers. Also the soul may split if it wishes to have more than one experience at the same time. This is possible but requires a level of development which most have not achieved…When you look into the eyes of another, any other and you see your own soul looking back at you, then you will know that you have reached another level of consciousness. In this sense reincarnation does not exist, for all lives and all experiences are simultaneous. But, in the three dimensional world, reincarnation is as real as time or as mountain or oceans. It is an energy like other energies, and its reality depends on the energy of the perceiver. As long as the perceiver perceives a physical body and solid objects reincarnation is real to that perceiver. The energy consists of light, love, and knowledge. The application of this knowledge in a loving way is wisdom. There is currently great lack of wisdom.”
“All is love. With love comes understanding. With understanding comes patience. And then time stops. And everything is now. Love is the ultimate answer. Love is not an abstraction but an actual energy, or spectrum of energy which you can create and maintain your being. Just be loving. You are beginning to touch God within yourself. Fell loving. Express your love. Love dissolves fear. You cannot be afraid when you are feeling love. Since everything is energy, and love encompasses all energies, all is love. This is the strong clue of God. When you are loving and unafraid, you can forgive. You can forgive others, and you can forgive yourself. You begin to see with the proper perspective. Guilt and anger are reflections of the same fear. Guilt is a subtle anger directed inward. Forgiveness dissolves guilt and anger. They are unnecessary, damaging emotions. Forgive. This is an act of love. Pride can get in the way of forgiving. Pride is one manifestation of ego. Ego is the transient, false self. You are not your body. You are not your brain. You are not your ego. You are greater than all of these. You need your ego to survive in the three-dimensional world, but you only need the part that processes information. The rest-pride, arrogance, defensiveness, fear, is worse than useless. The rest of the ego separates you from wisdom, joy and God. You must transcend your ego and find your true self. The true self is permanent, deepest part of you. It is wise, loving, safe, and joyful. Intellect is important in three-dimensional world, but intuition is more important. You have reversed reality and illusion. Reality is the recognition of your immortality, divinity, and timelessness. Illusion is your transient 3D world. Reversal is damaging you. You yearn for illusion of security instead of the security of wisdom and love. You yearn to be accepted when in reality, you can never be rejected. Ego creates illusion and hides truth. Ego must be dissolved then truth can be seen. With love and understanding comes the perspective of infinite patience. What is your hurry? There is no time anyway, it only feels that way to you. When you are not experiencing the present when you are absorbed in the past or worried about the future, you bring great heartache and grief to yourself. Time is an illusion, too. Even in the 3D world, future is only a system of probabilities. Why do you worry?
Love is the ultimate therapy. Measure time if you must, in lessons learned, not in minutes or hours. The past must be remembered then forgotten. Let it go. This is true for childhood trauma and past life trauma. This is also true for attitudes, misconceptions, belief systems drummed into you, for all old thoughts. Indeed, for all thoughts. How can you see freshly and clearly with all those thoughts? What if you need to learn something new? Thoughts create the illusion of separateness and difference. Ego perpetuates this illusion, and this illusion creates fear, anxiety, and tremendous grief. Fear, anxiety, and grief turn into anger and violence. How can peace exist in the world when these chaotic emotions predominate? Just unravel. Go back to the source of the problem. Stop thinking. Instead use your intuitive wisdom to experience love again. See that everything is interconnected and interdependent. See the unity. See your true self. See God.
You have relationship with yourself and others. You have lived in many bodies and in many times. So ask your present self why it is so fearful. Why are you afraid to take reasonable risks? Are you afraid of your reputation, afraid of what others think? These are conditioned from childhood or past lives. As yourself, Whats to lose? What is the worst that can happen? Am I content to live the rest of my life this way? Against a background of death, is this so risky (comparatively). In your growth do not be afraid of evoking anger in other people. Anger is only a manifestation of their insecurity. But fearing this anger can hold you back. Anger would be merely stupid if it didn’t create so much grief. Dissolver your own anger in love and forgiveness.
Do not let depression or anxiety hold you back in your growth. Depression is losing perspective, forgetting, and taking things for granted. Sharpen your focus. Resent your values. Remember what should not be taken for granted. Shift your perspective, and remember what is important and what is less important. Get out of the rut. Remember to hope. Anxiety is being lost in the ego. It is losing one’s boundaries. There is a dimly remembered loss of love, a wounding of pride, a loss of patience and peace. Remember you are never alone. Never lose the courage to take risks. You are immortal you can never be hurt.”
Sent with love to that child, in his next lifetime, that is happening as we speak, surrounded in love.
