Enjoy! I definitely got important things to say
The process of channeling is your spiritual journey. The minute the thought strikes that you know all you need to know and you truly feel satisfied and knowledgeable, your growth and evolvement stops. The thought, “There must be more than this,” is the only way to progress. You must tell yourself that even though you understand spiritual concepts at the level where you are, you know that you really don’t have the whole answer. You know there is a deeper understanding. When you reach this point of thinking and persevere you will have a breakthrough into reaching your inner being.
Planet Number One
The first crack in a person’s seed core is the most important, because this must take place before any other steps can follow. It takes different forms for some than others. In some it is precipitated by an accident to the physical body. In others it is brought on quickly by a mental blow of some sort, a divorce, loss of a loved one, loss of a job, betrayal by a friend, etc. In others it is a long slow process of deterioration, not only of the physical body, but also of the mental boredom that triggers the crack in the seed core as a life-saving maneuver, instigated by a person’s own soul. This first step has no other duty but is the most important.
Then there comes a quickening in the thinking processes, including the emergence of a stronger curiosity about life in general. This involves much activity in a person’s conscience, which is the first stage of raising your consciousness or awareness of what has transpired in your life thus far, especially in your relationships with other people. You are by now well into your spiritual search.
Next, you find yourself involved in a furious seeking of information through any means available, books, lectures, classes, other people, audio and video cassettes and CD’s, etc. When you have exhausted all these outer sources, this will be the true beginning of your inner search. With no concrete answers that you can fully accept, being disappointed with other people’s ideas and viewpoints, and having exhausted most available reading material, you will finally turn to yourself in seeking your answers, to the first place you should have looked to start with, your own university inside yourself.
Planet Number Two
The study in your own university will take many different forms, meditation, reflection, regression and expression. Meditation is just sitting quietly and listening to the little voice within you. Reflection should be done before you drop off to sleep, reviewing the day’s events. Another step would be just plain study on all phases of the search that interests you and drawing conclusions as to what you feel are truths for you and those that you are questioning, plus the continued deep searching of your own attitudes.
Study in one’s own university should also be through expressing, creatively, some of your inner ideas. This is one of the first steps to finding your God Within, but a very important step and must take place before any more progress can begin. This wanting to express outwardly what one feels to be true inwardly is a step towards the goal for humanity, reaching your inner being.
The major subjects in each university are attitudes and human relationships with the ultimate goal being a degree in attitudes, the science of facing one’s self truthfully. Because each has free will to set his own pace of growth in his own university, he can dally and tarry all he wants. After all, he is not only the student, but also the teacher and the administrator of the testing needed to progress on.
Planet Number Three
The astral plane is the area where you can make contact with relatives and friends who have passed on. About the time I realized I could get answers to personal questions was the time when I had worked back to a low level of the astral plane. The information started becoming glamorous because entities from this area of the astral plane were able to come through the writing. They gave false personal information and caused me much harm and held back my growth. I simply didn’t trust the information I was getting. I was still a little scared and unsure of the whole business of channeling. I used to destroy some of the early communications so no one would think I was crazy. I stopped writing for a time and returned to music and eventually after more study and meditation and work on my attitudes I returned to the writing.
When I was safely through this stage and started writing again it was as though I were doing journalistic reporting. I was always told to what plane or dimension I had been taken to get certain information. The feeling in my head was brought to my attention, as to whether it felt heavy or clear headed, or even light headed at times. I realize now that this was for my protection and to assure me that I was not in contact with the astral plane again.
It must be explained here that the astral plane is backwards from the earth’s twelve planes because it is a reflection. The first point of contact will be level twelve. The person must continue climbing the astral plane, which is going backwards from level twelve to level three until he breaks free to the fourth plane. Here accredited teachers and guides are waiting to help him, and most often do pull him through the traps of the astral plane and help him find his God Within.
The astral plane is the part of the path that is the reason the churches are so against the inner contact, or channeling. No one understood this astral plane and it was thought that delving into the inner life caused one to go mad and that it was satanic and the work of the devil. It was forbidden and discouraged and all growth towards truly finding their inner being was stunted.
Those in the higher planes are so very grateful to finally be able to explain this to humanity by the grace of a few brave souls willing to put this information out there. The process is becoming easier for people just beginning to channel, because it was not truly understood before.
Planet Number Four
After working through the astral plane, the process of channeling, which is our esoteric or spiritual journey, works its way up through twelve dimensions hand in hand with our exoteric, physical growth through the twelve dimensions of the brain. As given before, there is no contact available with the first two levels or dimensions as they have been closed off to humanity. Therefore, after skipping levels one and two and working through level three and then the astral plane, our first breakthrough into the second mind section, the lower right side of the brain, is made. This is where true esoteric contact begins. What has come before this has been psychic phenomena contact.
The ninth century B.C. was a time of great uprising and fighting in the regions surrounding Egypt. The river Nile was at flood stage many times during this century. The weather patterns were extremely erratic. The Pharaoh in power for a good part of this century was claiming and fighting for control of most areas where the sphinxes were located. He had knowledge of secrets that were buried in one of the sphinxes; he knew not which one and wanted to possess all of them to be certain he had access to this knowledge.
Fortunately for humanity he met a quick death when he finally had gained ownership of the land holding the sphinx that held the secrets. If he had not met his death, he could certainly have gained control of the world with this knowledge. This knowledge is so well hidden that none today will find it. These secrets had been the way the pyramids had been built. They are the way the cities in the new age will be built.
Jesus also had the knowledge of the mysteries and this is how he performed his miracles. He used the mysteries for good always. The Pharaoh would have used them for evil had he gotten hold of them. These mysteries included:
1. Solar Energy
4. Out of Body Travel
6. Thought Transference
7. Suspended Animation
8. Vibrating Atoms
These all must necessarily employ great mind power, which must be developed through evolution. There are a few entities able to weakly do some of these mysteries, but it will be a long way down the road before they all can be restored.
1. Solar Energy is not being properly used as of now. The sun’s rays need to be reflected before being absorbed in solar collectors. The reflections intensify the heat and at the same time eliminate unnecessary rays. This miniaturizes the apparatus needed on the home making it much less expensive to install. The way it is being done now is a laborious system the other would be streamlined.
2. Healing by thought or touch is all done with energy. If the illness is indeed caused by physical circumstances, then touch is used. If it can be determined that it is the emotional body affecting the physical, then thought is used. The healer must have an extremely powerful mental body to perform this. A knowledge of the energy lines in bodies combined with an innate understanding of psychology and the use of intuition is indicated.
3. Levitation also takes a strong mental ability. One focuses all three bodies (physical, mental and emotional) on the object to be moved and with the third eye, pictures it in its new position. This obviously can’t be done until the third eye is restored and the bodies brought into alignment.
4. Out of Body Travel is the ability of the mind to travel to another location than where the physical form is. This is a natural state for humanity and is done effortlessly by many already. It usually comes into play in unenlightened ones in times of emergency or great emotional stress. It should not be used on a whim to interfere in anyone’s personal life.
5. Dematerialization is done by organizing the atoms in one’s body to vibrate with increased intensity. This is done with ease by very highly evolved entities, but is almost impossible or totally impossible for those in incarnation today, unless from a distant star. Even then it is very difficult due to the heavy atmosphere on earth. In the new age, the increase in the rate of the energy waves, plus the clean non-polluted atmosphere, will lend itself to making this easier.
6. Thought Transference – for thought transference, two must be vibrating at exactly the same level. They must necessarily want to send a message and be open to receive one.
7. Suspended Animation is very dangerous. It is energy powerful enough to stop the vibrations of atoms. It is one of the most powerful forces in the universe and would only be used in dire emergencies.
8. Honing is done in the throat and sets up a force field around individuals to repel harmful vibrations. The energy field at times can be so forceful as to drive back another entity trying to approach the one using this.
9. Vibrating Atoms or devas are miniature tops, swirling units of energy. They may be compared to dust devils, only on an infinitesimal scale. Enough of them, commanded by mental power, thought transference, can be induced to move building materials where they need to be. Needless to say, the wrong use of these forces could have serious consequences. Compare them also with the force tornados have and feats that dust devils can perform.
The physical healings Jesus did, and those being done now, are all done with mental power, mind control. There is a way that this can be done instantly, but takes one in whom the psychic powers have been honed to their sharpest degree. This healing power potential is latent in all humanity. Very few ever develop it and certainly no one has ever developed it to the degree that Jesus did. This was part of the plan of His incarnation so He was well grounded and trained in this before entry. The mysteries locked inside the pyramids explain this training and give detailed instructions as to how to develop this potential. If these were to be found by anyone today, they would be used for mercenary purposes.
As far as stories of other “miracles” He performed, most were blown out of proportion in the retelling. He did on several occasions, make use of levitation and solar power but never used suspended animation, though He was capable of it.
The human race simply is not developed enough to be able to do miracles on a daily basis. It has nothing to do with their spiritual growth. It has everything to do with physical evolution. It would have to do with the combining of genes that takes place before the entity is born so there are limitations on what we can do to create our own reality. These limitations are imposed by our physical body. There are no limitations to creating our own reality when we leave the earth plane, as earth is the only plane we will progress through where we are caught in matter and have this limitation imposed on us.
We cannot walk on water because our flesh and bones do not have the buoyancy that is needed to walk on water. They do not have this buoyancy because they do not have the right DNA makeup. Jesus was one who had this makeup way before his time. He had a different DNA structure, a much more progressed DNA structure, than anyone has had before or since.
Humans will eventually evolve to where they can do miracles in the physical body. The mental body, the animal-based brain, will have much to do with this progress and it is progressing quite rapidly. Do not misunderstand. The DNA must progress first. The actual atomic structure of the human form must progress first, to where the buoyancy of the form would be there. Then it will be a combination of the animal-based brain mind and the desire of the soul wanting to do miracles that will allow it to happen. This will be, perhaps, between 500 and 1,000 years into the future before this will take place.
Jesus gave off very strong vibrations, much stronger than any today. Perhaps only because of the purer atmosphere, they seemed stronger and could be felt by those who got near Him, even though these people were not sensitive. The mystery of honing which can be described as being like the purring of a cat, is what enabled Him to have these strong vibrations. Honing can be used to repel or attract, whichever is wanted or necessary. He used it to attract the people. He was truly a great psychic and still possesses these powers today. He never used any psychic power for anything other than good.
You must learn to know yourself and love yourself. Knowing yourself must be the first step. When you begin to know yourself better, first will come freedom from guilt and second, you will gain self-respect. After that will come the stage of self-like, then self-admiration, and finally self-love in the way it was meant to be.
To Know Oneself Physically
Where the physical body fits into all this is in the ability to enable the mind to work better. Thus the experimental nutritional Garden of Eden. Those in the higher planes knew from the beginning of their experiment on planet earth that the nourishment of the physical forms that the souls entered would determine the growth and thinking capacity of the human brain. The human brain was what the soul would infiltrate then to carry on with experiential life on the earth plane. Therefore, nutrition and exercise are of the utmost importance.
The condition of the physical body will aid the brain in thinking, which can then push for further thought in nutrition, which will then influence the person to eat more wisely and thus increase their thinking. When the quality of food and the quantity of nutrition is increased the brain will function better and this will allow the soul to gain a stronghold which can then influence the spiritual thoughts, which will then work to control the emotions, which will then help the physical body to quit eating for comfort and the cycle will start again. If this cycle could be instigated in all from an early age on, the growth of humans would be fantastic.
To Know Oneself Emotionally
To know oneself emotionally is something that most people do know. They know what “tears at their heart” and makes them feel like crying or actually makes them cry. Most of the time they know what makes them angry, jealous or resentful. Here again, the lower emotions are the easiest to pinpoint. They are, therefore, the easiest to work on to change. The changing of these will go hand in hand with the changing and expanding of spiritual concepts. The changing of all emotion will go hand in hand with the changing of guidelines to live ones life by.
To Know Oneself Mentally
Now if the mental body does not have any interest in changing or even thinking about guidelines or spiritual concepts, then there is not much hope for growth in this person. The mind, the mental focus of a human, is the controller of his growth and progress in each lifetime. Therefore, this is the place where all growth must start, is in the mental thought. It must focus on who you are, what you are doing, what you want to change, what you have outgrown and so on and so forth.
The mental knowingness is not quite so difficult to achieve, as most people know what interests them to think about and what challenges them to push their thoughts further and deeper. It is this pushing of thoughts further and deeper that will help you know yourself mentally. In my case I know that I’m interested in scientific concepts and it is by pushing them further and deeper that I’m able to bring forth the new technology that I do. Therefore, it is a concrete fact that I am scientifically minded. This is what it means to know yourself.
Now, if you don’t like who you find yourself out to be mentally, there is a possibility of changing it. For instance, I changed from being totally interested in music to being interested in science, but the first interest is the basic building blocks of the second as both will be for the third area of interest I will find someday. If people could realize this, then they would be able to accept changes that come in their life and look at where they are leading them. One must keep changing to allow the development of the primary goal to take place. If one gets stuck in the first area of interest, he will not progress much mentally. Change is the giver of life. Accept it; welcome it with enthusiasm and you will then be able to live in joy.
To Know Oneself Spiritually
To know oneself spiritually, one must examine what guidelines they are living their life by and examine their conscience to determine if these guidelines are still viable for where they are in life at that time. Can a guideline be changed thus allowing the consciousness to expand? If the guideline cannot be changed without bringing into play the “brakes” of the conscience, then this particular guideline is still very much ingrained in ones beingness.
Therefore, the way to expand and grow is to work with tight concepts and guidelines given you as a child as to right and wrong actions and see if you can loosen the effect on the conscience that new action causes. If it still causes the conscience to come into play no matter how much you try to change, then this is a concept that is spiritual truth for you and you will live your life by it and carry it over into your next. One should test out all the guidelines they are living by to be absolutely sure they are right and true and unchangeable for them.
This then forms the real you as far as your spiritual self goes. The search for the God Within remains ever the same. It does not change with each new generation. It is the age-old path of wisdom that remains forever. The search for the individual does begin with the conscience, which gets right down to a look at their attitudes towards those they’re associated with in their everyday life. Also their overview attitudes which will in turn affect their attitude towards individuals. If one has an attitude against a certain race or religion as a whole this will immediately color this person’s attitude when they meet an individual of this race or religion.
Each life is split into thirds. The first third is resolving karma, the second is growing personally and the last third is preparing for crossing and the next incarnation.
Karma is part of the judicial system. It is the sentence that is “handed down,” so to speak, from the “judge” of your action, your own soul. This is what determines your karma or “penalty,” if you will, of any wrong doings in your journey. It is not some figure in white robes sitting on a “judgment seat,” who passes this sentence. It is your own conscience that determines your own wrongdoing that sets your own penalty or karma. You also determine the length of the sentence or karma that you owe to another.
Your guides on the inner planes will let you determine the best way to undo any previous wrongs or, if not able to undo them, the best way to compensate for them by helping you choose the best available circumstances to incarnate into the next time. You do get help in this respect, but they do not, cannot, tell you who you committed the misdeeds against. This comes from you and until you grow and evolve, you may not realize that you have mistreated someone until perhaps three or four lifetimes after the action.
Does a person suffer bad, good or any kind of karma by:
Question No. 1: Not visiting their Grandmother because they are a little bit bored by it and too busy? Answer: No one will incur karma from this unless it makes him feel guilty. If he feels guilty, then there will be karma, but not of a serious nature. It will most likely be repaid in some manner within the same lifetime.
Question No. 2: Not possessing emotional strength to leave a relationship in which your partner incites you to inflict pain on another – actions you personally abhor but feel powerless to resist the partner’s will?
Answer: This situation will cause much karma on the one whose conscience bothers them about the situation. In other words, if one is sufficiently evolved to know that what he is doing is wrong and does not have the strength to remove himself from the situation that is causing him to commit the deeds that are bothering him, he will incur much karma.
Question No. 3: Denying spare change to a bum on the street?
Answer: Karma will be incurred only if it bothers your conscience. If it does it can easily be erased by giving change to the next bum you meet.
Question No. 4: Killing small flying insects which posed no particular threat to you?
Answer: This will not cause karma because the insect is in the stage lower than that in which the soul was involved. You will not get karma from the first three kingdoms, but will with the fourth. The insect is still in the transitional stage from the third kingdom to the fourth. In other words, humans will gain karma in mistreating animals because this is the same kingdom they themselves came from.
Question No. 5: Cheating on income taxes even though the taxes are for immoral purposes?
Answer: Karma will be incurred if it bothers your conscience. It matters not what the taxes are used for because that is not your karmic concern. That is the karmic responsibility of those running your government. Your responsibility is to be as good a citizen as you can by obeying the laws of the society in which you live.
Question No. 6: Can karma be erased by sincerely regretting an action one commits that is harmful or unthinking toward another?
Answer: This is not usually enough to satisfy the soul. The soul is very demanding in that repayment in kind, when possible, be made. It knows that the experiencing of the wrongdoing is most likely the only thing that will prevent you from doing it again. Just regretting an action is not going to be a sufficient deterrent to your future actions in relation to this situation.
Question No. 7: Being a “peeping tom” and infringing on another person’s right to privacy though the “victim” never becomes aware of the peeping and is thus not “harmed?”
Answer: What do you think?
Question No. 8: Does karma only result from actions against people? How about a person who burns a forest or does some other kind of damage that does not directly affect people?
Answer: The karma would be with yourself and the determining factor would be your motive for doing whatever it is you do, such as burning the forest. If it was an accident, then your conscience is clear and there will be no karma. If it was a deliberate, malicious act intended to harm others, then there is much karma with yourself. Karma with yourself is the worst kind of karma to clear up.
Question No. 9: Is karma very specific? If, for instance, as a youthful employee of a design studio, I stole magic markers from the company, will magic markers be stolen from me?
Answer: It is specific to the point where the deed will probably be the same, but not specific items, as most circumstances would not lend themselves to that. In other words, you most likely will have something stolen from you at some point, but it probably will not be magic markers.
Question No. 10: Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law they say. If a person has absolutely no inkling that his actions toward another are wrong or hurtful, would he suffer bad karma?
Answer: If he is dense enough to have no inkling that his actions were wrong, then he has not developed the conscience enough for there to be karma incurred.
Question No. 11: If a person does important acts of charity or kindness, though not believing in them and only trying to make a good impression, would he garner good karma even though deep down he was hypocritical?
Answer: He would not garner good karma. There is no such thing as good karma. He would not gain bad karma either against anyone except himself. The only result of actions such as this is personal karma.
Question No. 12: Why do so many rock and roll stars die at an early age? Do they share a musical karma? Did they make “pacts with the devil” to achieve their successes or were they all overdoing drugs?
Answer: Most rock and roll stars misuse drugs. Also, the vibrations of the kind of music they perform inhibits the soul and the soul cannot enter to help the situation out. The deterioration process begins and it is a downhill slide to the end of their life.
Channeling is the voice of the spirit within each human being; it is the voice of your God Within, if you will. It is within everyone, let there be no mistake about it. As to whether it is reached or not depends on many things.
Anyone can do it. In fact, many already do channeling and have just accepted it as a part of themselves and never questioned where this inner voice came from. They are the ones who have already bonded with this inner part, or become synthesized (joined lower and higher selves) in other lifetimes. You will find them at a higher level of intelligence. This is what it’s all about after all, achieving the higher mind, which simply will be seen as higher intelligence.
Channeling Different for All
Channeling takes many different forms with many different people. It won’t always be as words being heard in your head or thought pictures. It could come just as thoughts. If this is the way a channel is developing it will most likely be a vocal channel as opposed to a writing channel. This person will speak the thoughts. This is his form of channeling, instead of writing the thoughts. It is every bit as valid a channel as the written channel.
There are others who bring this channel through the arts, who channel inspiration from the higher realms into their paintings, into their music, and most definitely into theatrical performances. The making of a great actor is his ability to channel the thought processes of the character he is developing (this is a slightly different meaning of the term channeling). He actually gives birth to this character inside his mind and channels that through. This would be a form of “brain channeling.” That kind of acting is in a category by itself.
This does not apply to art and music. Art and music are simply a different language for expressing the thought pattern, the thought pictures that come through from the higher realms. One person will bring these through in writing, another in speaking, others in painting, music, dance, or perhaps skating. Any of these arts, the movement, patterns, colors and harmonies are all being channeled. When a writer writes the channeling, these are all there in the writing. As a matter of fact, if a channel were to write in different colors when at the computer, it would make the interpretation of the material easier.
Understanding of Channeling is Progressing
With the breakthrough into the understanding of channeling, which is part of our divine heritage, much forward progress has been made. The ability to do channeling was looked upon as witchcraft for many centuries, even to the point of “burning at the stake” those who did this. Do you realize the significant progress that has been achieved in the last few years? Can you imagine the reaction to some of our books and shows several years ago?
Thousands of years ago, only those with a highly evolved background could do this channeling. Thus they were, and rightly should have been, revered as teachers and prophets. But the level they reached with their channeling was not nearly as high a source as most today are capable of reaching. (When Master Jesus said, “What I do, you can do also,” could it have been channeling he was speaking of?) There were not as many highly evolved souls in the other dimensions, at that time, to respond with intelligence. Therefore, some who could contact other dimensions did so with a lower level of evolved souls. As progress is made on the earth plane, so also in the “voice within” able to make contact with more intelligent thoughts and ideas in the other dimensions.
We are in the early phase of this stage of evolution and many are able to open the channel in this lifetime. Some have opened it in previous lifetimes and many will open it in the following lifetime. Most children being born today will have the channel readily able to open with proper education. Herein lies the only control factor of this stage of evolution, education as to the proper use of the ability to channel. This is the ability to communicate with your inner being, the unseen parts of you that make up the total you.
Instinct Refined to Intuition will Open the Channel
As the human progresses he becomes more aware of a feeling of bonding with the different kingdoms at different stages of his growth. At the present time there is no precise order that this awareness progresses through, but it is all leading to the same point, that of instinct becoming refined to intuition. In the future, early schooling will focus on the ability to transmute instinct to intuition.
The way to sharpen up the intuition is by interacting with other people and also with the animal and plant kingdoms. Intuition would be an opening of feeling as to what is going on within a plant, sensing, when looking at a plant, what shape or what condition it’s in. Is it happy? Does it look sad? Is it undernourished? Is it not loved? Then moving on to the animal, even greater communication is possible. Intuition is a feeling of knowing what a certain animal is all about, how they will react to each situation, depending on their state of physical health at the time. Animals will have the ability to help teach children in the future, as intuition will be learned and practiced with animals first. After a sensing of animals, the human will begin to apply this ability to his fellow humans.
This is the beginning of becoming intuitive, which is a forerunner of more in-depth channeling. All this is to sharpen your intuition, not your instinct. Your instinct is a natural, inborn quality that you have; you don’t have to sharpen it. It was a gift and it’s this instinct that you’re transmuting into intuition. Working with plants, animals, and humans, not necessarily in that order, but with all three, will help with the breakthrough into transmuting this intuition into actual channeling.
Intuition is Forerunner to Channeling
When one gets a subtle feeling, or some other subtle communication, this is intuition and is a forerunner of channeling. The intuition needs to be worked on and developed and will eventually turn into actual channeling. You can’t say that intuition is a form of channeling but rather that it is a forerunner of the actual process of channeling. Intuition has grown out of instinct of the animal-based brain and is a sign of the beginning influence of the soul on the incarnation.
The world today is in the throes of beginning chaos. We are going through a sociological change. This change in society must come about. It is the changeover from the Manufacturing Age to the Age of Creativity. What comes from the center of a person’s being, the truth of his being, is what will determine his ability to earn his livelihood in the coming days. This has always been true to a certain extent, but will become much more pronounced.
The economy is changing into that of becoming a marketplace for only that which comes from each one’s contact with their God Within. The quality of each article produced will determine its value and its saleability. There is always a difficult period of adjustment when a revolution involving the people’s ability to clothe and feed and house themselves is at stake. This is really what we are in at this time, a revolution, against the outdated practices of the Manufacturing Age. It must change and those who cannot adjust their thoughts and change with it are the ones who will suffer the most.
Now, more than ever, one must “trust God,” which is their own self, remember, to provide what is needed on a day to day basis. Your God Within, your higher mind, knows where the next meal is coming from. It knows how the tax bill will be met. The only thing people accomplish when they worry constantly about these things is to block the process that will bring the answers to them.
The coming New Culture will be the Age of Creativity, or the Age of creation, the New creation and this will come about by each creating their own personal reality through their thoughts, which then becomes their personality. To express this creativity is much more difficult for the men and they are having a much harder time adjusting to the changes that are upon us, both as a society and also as individuals.
Men need to have the emotional release of beauty through creativity to help soften and color the male ego and make it masculinity at its finest. Women need to have the ability to be able to create beauty and express it in a powerful, but yet dainty and feminine way. For some the expression of creativity may just take on the form of planning, cooking and serving a balanced diet to their loved ones, but this is their form of creative outlet, of giving love and expression from the center of their being. For another it may be growing flowers in their garden, their love of nature being expressed through the growing of these beautiful flowers and most often giving them away as their gift to their fellow man.
All do not have to be Picassos or Beethovens. The shopkeeper may express his inner self in his window displays. For some it will be through their livelihood, for others the expression will come in their leisure moments, but it must come some way or other. Through beauty, coloring and harmony, we will achieve the bridging from our lower self to our higher self.
We all know that working with arts and crafts helps the mentally ill. The same will apply to all of us. It is the only way of stabilizing the emotional body. It would be far better to pick up a paint brush and paint an amateur or even ugly painting than to take a tranquilizer or aspirin or alcohol to calm the nerves.
In the competition of today’s world it is hard to draw a fine line between self-aggrandizement and common sense advertising of ones abilities. The truth of which one you are into will show in the ultimate long term, not short term, staying power of your particular product or craft or art or whatever it is you are wanting to accomplish to earn your daily bread. For most of humanity, earning their daily bread will not change quickly from what it had been, but will evolve rather slowly.
The question for most is how to serve in a spiritual manner and continue to be able to meet financial responsibilities. The changeover to being of service must be gradual. No one wants it to be gradual, but this is the most successful way to work into earning your living by serving your fellowman. The way for most people to be of service and prepare for the future, as far as their own sustenance goes, is ages old. It is simply by being a humanitarian and helping your fellow man in any way, or through any opportunity, that presents itself.
This in turn will bring the opportunities to you that will show you wherein lies your special talent or niche in the scheme of things. This is why it must be a slow process. It can’t be forced. You may try many different ways of lending a helping hand or serving in some capacity in charitable work before you find what it is that you are really good at, and makes you, personally, feel satisfied, full and complete. Then you will have found your own personal way of serving humanity.
At this time you must take this idea or service or product and work with it and bend it and form it into a structure that will enable you to do it on a full-time basis to earn your living and supply a service that you are good at and that is good and beneficial for you. By this time, of course, you will no longer care if you become “rich” or not as far as money is concerned, because your own personal satisfaction will be all that matters. You can do as much or as little of the service as you need to fulfill your financial obligations.
Above all, you must continue the creative process in your free time to express your soul through beauty. The more that the way you earn your daily bread incorporates the inner part of you, that bare kernel inside expressing through to the outer, the better you will feel and the easier your path will become as far as the daily bread. Also the effect that it will have on those connected with you will be amazing. Most people cannot get to this point because of the animalistic ego feelings of wanting to do it their way, their own way. What they do not realize is that those on the higher planes know ahead of time, for the most part, what it is these people would be very happy doing because they helped choose it before the person entered incarnation.
