The Christ Soul

Many ask, “How can I become a perfected being?” I say to you, strive for perfection yet know that, while on this earth plane, perfection is difficult to attain. This is because you are limited by the lessons you have yet to learn as indicated by your astrological patterning. All of you have planets in your astrological makeup which influence your life and present you with choices. Mercury governs speech and communication, Venus the home and family, Mars one’s fighting instinct, etc. It is the unlearned lessons that stop one from becoming a perfected human being. While on this earth plane you are under the influence of these planets, and they become limiting. It is the choices you make life after life that perfect the soul. Each lifetime is a lesson in becoming perfect until there comes a time that no return to earth is necessary. Then one becomes perfected.

What is the Christ Soul? It is the essence in man that has total compassion and understanding for their fellow man. It is that part of man that never judges and that has complete understanding of any situation. It is kind and tolerant, and yet it will not stand idle and be walked upon. As Christ himself overturned the tables of the money changers, he did not stand by and do nothing when greed was apparent. The Christ essence is free of ego and completely unbiased. Everyone has the Christ Soul. It is in all people, but it has to be discovered. When man has freed himself of all limitations and conditioning, then he will find the Christ Soul within himself.

Deep within the human psyche is a love that surpasses all barriers. That love can be buried for many centuries. Lifetime after lifetime as the Lower Self controls the soul, many mistakes are made, and the love that is buried can stay buried like a seed that has been planted but is waiting for rain. Finally though, the Higher Self – to this point continually dominated by the Lower Self – starts to fight back and demands to be noticed. When this happens, love, like a small seed that has been planted and is waiting for the rain, starts to grow. If it can be left alone and unhindered by the Lower Self, it will grow so big that it can encompass the world. Christ said, “Be as little children.” By this he meant that, as a child, life is uncomplicated, unburdened, and free. As adults we burden ourselves with conditioning and habits, some that have been with us most of our previous lives. When we rid ourselves of these habits and the conditioning, then we can once again become “as little children,” free to see what is around us, free to hear the words of the Spiritual realms, and free to enjoy our lives as they should be lived – with happiness and without burdens.

When finally the soul strives for freedom and seeks a higher level of consciousness, there comes a battle between the Lower Self and the Higher Self. The Lower Self has been in charge most of your earth life. The Higher Self is the part of you that is becoming enlightened. The Lower Self does not want to give up control. When this happens, ego purification has to take place. For many months – and sometimes for years – the soul is confronted with the Lower Self battling to retain control. The Higher Self becomes stronger and more in control, and finally the Ego – the “I” the part of us that will not give in – finally succumbs to defeat. Only then can the soul find true enlightenment and become one with the Divine Source.

What is the Lower Self? It is pride, selfishness, greed, ego, fear, hatred, and many more negative emotions. What is the Higher Self? It is love, truth, selflessness, honesty, compassion, understanding, non-prejudice, and many more positive emotions.

Which one is in control of you?
