Being spiritual means that you are searching for the answers for YOUR truth. Each soul on the Earth plane is in their own hologram or their own reality. Despite living in a group environment on the Earth plane, each soul has their own reality and their own truth.
During your incarnation, many of you will meet with those you have been with before. For some of you, the feelings and emotions will be so overwhelming that you believe you are in love, even though you may be married or living with someone else. The emotions which come to the surface, together with the feelings you have, will defy all you can imagine. Why is this? It is because you are connecting with an unfinished energy.
I have often been asked the purpose of life. The purpose of life is to grow in Spirit. Life is a school, an education. All those who come into your life are the teachers. Every soul acts as a mirror for you. Every soul is a teacher.
Often you say to yourself, how can I find what my life lessons are? How can I climb the ladder to a higher vibration? This is very easy if you have the keys to the knowledge, because it is connected to spiritual astrology. Only when you can learn of your life path through astrology can you start to work to attain higher levels of awareness.
You are all mirrors for each other. What you see in another that you do not like or which annoys you is what you need to look at within yourself. It is an aspect of yourself which is being brought to your attention. It is saying, “Look, this is what you need to see,” yet often you are so frightened you either banish the person from your presence or you run away from it.
You often cry out in your pain and suffering, “God, why is this happening to me? I am a good person, why am I suffering?” The reason for this and for all life purpose is karma. It is the repayment of debts and the receiving of debts. From the minute of earth time that you are born you begin the path to repaying your karma, receiving karma, and to clearing your Akashic record.
One big lesson to learn is exchanging energy for services rendered. For so many on the path of awakening, the thought of paying for a service connected with us in the spiritual world is looked upon with surprise and resentment. The adage seems to be “If it is from God, why is it not free?” There has to be an exchange of energy for everything, whether for a bottle of milk, or for a spiritual workshop. That is why the soothsayers of the past would say “Cross my palm with silver” before giving a reading. The exchange of energy provides an opportunity for the Universe to bring in more to the giver. If the cycle of energy exchange is maintained, there is never a lack. One gives and one receives.
Maitreya’s Message on Money and Worth
There are many who are on a spiritual path who say, “But to ask for money is not spiritual.” Why is it not spiritual? I have said many times that “A laborer is worthy of his hire.” All humanity is worthy of hire, but many do not know what their worth is. Several earth years ago I informed my channel to place a worth on herself.
The subject of truth is very interesting because it asks many questions. For instance, “What is Truth?” Just the word, “truth,” can have a different meaning in every dictionary that you have. To be truthful means not to tell a lie, and yet what is a lie? A lie can be one man’s truth. This may sound like a Chinese puzzle but it raises quite an issue that humankind has not considered, and that is the meaning of “truth.”
For those on the spiritual path, those who have chosen to tread the path of spiritual growth, life can become very heavy as one becomes aware of the emotional body and how it can be affected by the path of growth. The whole purpose of your spiritual path is to let go of and move on from the emotional body. It is the emotional body which the Self hangs on to, holding on to the fear, doubt, jealousy, anger, greed etc. Often you are not aware that this is happening to you, that the Self is hanging on to these emotions.
Nothing is going to happen to the world. What is going to happen is that change is taking place, which is shifting the Earth plane to a new plane of existence. What is happening in the world is meant to be. There are no accidents in life, what is happening is that it is bringing change to the world, slowly and surely; the old is being cleared away, and the new being created.
I was asked recently how one can tell what is the Self and what is the Higher Self? This is not a difficult answer to give; the Self creates illusion. It will have you believing the most preposterous things. It will have you believing you are not the guilty one when you are, and it will reason with you to try and get you to see its point of view. It will even argue with your Higher Self.
The Higher Self will always lead you to safety and, may I say, to a better life and better conditions. It does not want you to live in a negative way. It does not control either, but suggests the higher way. The Higher Self has all the answers, but the Self keeps getting in the way.
