Then, there is loveAnd the taste of lifelike wild honey on my tongueSweet, fragrant and intense,An exotic, unnamed song Untested, bold horizons begin to clap against my eyesEnchanted sunlit gardens Dawning, dappled skies A world revealed, existingalongside human misery and shame,Eternal, always offeredshould we just release all pain The promise of our futureis greater than […]
After many tries at communicating with you in regards to the ways forward from this place of contention, we are of the opinion that more often than not such things as resentment and haste have resulted in an inability to be more focused on forgiveness and love.
Although you perceive current happenings as almost unbearable, they present to all involved an opportunity to experience the emotions that are locked inside and to offer a calling to come together and assist one another by being way-showers of a sort.
Remaining in a place of complete reliance on God’s ability to create for us a universe so orchestrated that no matter where we turn there is always a clue to how to get back to that place we can call home. Truly at-one with the universe and beyond.
Stay true, stay sure. You know by now we are here, always by your side and witnessing your advancing soul development and applaud your every discovery along the way.
Your desire to lift the current situation for all on earth as well as those who no longer occupy that space excites and delights us. Much work is yet to be done but will only be done in line with the laws and principles which Jesus has outlined and God has provided for us. Very simple yet profound assistance given to all who choose it, as you have done so.
Take heart in the knowledge that, although your efforts may go unnoticed in the denseness of the human observances it is well recognised from our vantage point and also felt as a huge serge throughout the spheres.
Continue to be an inspired contributor to people, places and things and when you allow for our response we will surely and gladly drop in and offer our thoughts and prayers to add to yours for an amazing achievement, and sit back and appreciate you all over again as you also show your appreciation for us.
Our mutual love is one of the things that will assure our success as surely as night follows day and the tides will turn.
We say farewell for now and leave you with the knowledge that we are truly one with you and your efforts in all earnestness and have faith that your desires are pure and resounding on a grand scale.
Our love to you. Goodnight.
[00:37:00.28] A.J.: And this is where I feel a lot of people would be a lot more circumspect with their choices on earth if they knew that, once they had passed, that they would reap the rewards; or the compensatory effects – the penalties, if you like, of what they have sown on earth. And, I feel that, while they do that in a day-to-day basis while they are on earth, many are not very sensitive to it, on earth. Whereas, in the spirit world you are forced into the sensitivity to the reaping; you will reap what you have sown on earth. And this is why it becomes such a marked time when you first pass. Because you are now reaping the direct results of what you have sown.
[00:37:49.11] Mary: Yeah. It’s even more, as you say, it’s right there : here it is. It is a point, if you will, like, it’s not a judgement point, but it’s a point where it’s time to take stock. There was the one opportunity that God gave you, with a lot of mercy, and a lot of experimentation with your free-will – what happened with that? How did you go with that? Now let’s look at what you’re going to have to deal with from that; and how you’re going to continue to use your will now.
[00:38:17.16] A.J.: Yes. Well, obviously, that then causes a person to be more circumspect after that point, as to how they use their will. And this is why it’s very interesting sometimes, talking to spirits who have passed, is that many of them have used their will quite poorly on earth; they pass into the spirit world and many of them are now quite afraid to use their will in that direction any further, which is understandable; they understand that if they use their will further in the negative direction they were using it on earth, then, obviously, there may be further negative consequences. So they no longer do that.
But they’re also then quite afraid to make any positive steps; because they don’t even know what a positive step generally is. They don’t understand that it’s all based around love; and God’s viewpoint of love. And so, they are often very afraid to make any positive steps; and for that reason many of them stay very still, and they don’t do anything. And they don’t do it because they’re afraid, that if they don’t do a positive step that might make their situation more painful and worse. And so, this is something we need to work our way through after we’ve passed, generally. And this is why many of the discussions we have with spirits are about helping them with that transition of, you know, seeing the relationship between what they did on earth; where they are now in the spirit world; and then, of course, what they could choose to do in the spirit world; and then the results that might come if they chose a more loving direction.
But it becomes more strongly known to you once you’ve passed. On earth, you can be desensitised to it; you can avoid the pain; you can blame everyone else for where you are; you can blame everyone else for your pain; you can blame your husband, your wife, your kids, your father, you know, your mother, your friends, your workmates, your companies, the Government; you can blame anybody, but in the spirit world you don’t get to do all of that. You start to realise that, actually, where I am right now is the direct result of my personal choices; and you don’t get to blame everybody anymore. And that’s a really good thing, actually; but also it’s a very, like, ‘in your face’ thing as well. Very powerful tool to help you come to some awareness and cognizance of your own responsibility.
[00:40:37.03] Mary: Mmm. And I feel we are given opportunities to recognise that responsibility all the while that we’re on earth; God’s Laws are always trying to show us : Hey, you’re using your will; hey, look at how your will’s affecting things; hey, all these things. But then, when we pass it’s an even a bigger moment, isn’t it; less deniable. Less able to make excuses.
[00:40:59.14] A.J.: You know, we can bring up many illustrations of that. For example, if you look at the issue with disease and sickness. Most people on earth blame external factors for disease and sickness; they don’t believe that it has anything to do with what their soul is in denial of feeling. And, as a result, when they pass, they start coming to terms with the fact, they have these diseases and sicknesses because of what they chose; not for any other reason. And this is a very very stark contrast to on earth; on earth, everybody on earth thinks it’s got nothing to do with what you chose, and there must be some other reason. And you can’t do that with regard to sickness and disease in the spirit world. So, if you have diseased limbs or sicknesses in the spirit world – which you can have – you will find that it’ll be very much a reflection of what you’ve chosen to do; suppression of what you’ve chosen to suppress. And so, in that process, you start to learn. ‘Ah, even on earth when I had that sickness; or I had that illness; or I had that disease, that was all the result of what I chose to suppress; it was my responsibility; my creation. And you start seeing things as your own creations rather than blaming other people for what you created.
[00:47:12.07] A.J.: And isn’t this wonderful, this next section? Like, this is, again, one of the big Truths that the book contains about the universe; and about God; and about The Way, the way in which God designed for us to progress. Some really big Truths in this next couple of paragraphs. So, we really need to go through them in a fair bit of detail, don’t we?
[00:47:31.15] Mary: Yes. Okay. So, if I read this just by way of introduction, this is the thought that came to him. ‘There is but one way for all mankind to travel on their pilgrimage to God; the earth stages had been tampered with and rendered difficult to trace, but from where my feet were standing the way was clear and unmistakable. It was the way called Straight, whose engineer was God Himself, and it bore His stamp and seal, even as we find it upon the face of Nature.’
[00:48:07.21] A.J.: Mmm. So, I suppose we could stop there for a moment; because there’s a lot being said just there, I feel. Like, firstly that the earth stages have been tampered with. And what he’s referring to when he calls it the way called Straight, referring to a biblical quote, obviously; both in most of the gospel accounts where I talked about the straight and narrow way that leads to life; and then the broad and spacious way, the bible says ‘leads off to destruction’ – it’s not what I actually said. But this narrow and straight way that leads to life, God created; and we need to honour the fact, firstly, that God created it, no person, including myself, created it; we didn’t invent it, God created it as a way; it is the only way, in fact, for progression. And this is something I see a lot of people on earth get confused a lot now, because they believe there’s many ways to God; but there’s only one way to God, and that is the way God created there to be a way to be to God. So, God created this way; and all these so-called other ways to God, don’t lead to God at all; but they are all distractions from the main way; the narrow way that actually leads to God.
And, I feel that if we understood that, alone, we would want to discover what that way is, rather than focusing on holding onto our own concepts of what the way is; or holding onto a biblical concept; or a random concept; or other religious concept of what that way is; or just believing that : aw, all of us have different concepts of what that way is, and we’re all right. You know, that’s a physical impossibility in God’s Universe, for every different thing to be right. (laughs) So, you know, we need to give up all those things.
[00:49:55.23] Mary: So that’s one way that The Way has been distorted on earth. There’s other ways, isn’t there? In that often people control the environment through fear, and hatred, and greed; and this distorts our understanding of what is rewarded in God’s Universe, doesn’t it? Because of the free-will of man, used – or humankind – exercised out of harmony with love, on the earth specifically, we begin to see the full effects of that.
[00:50:35.12] A.J.: Yeah. Well, we have another reality created; it’s a distortion of God’s reality. But we have it created because we all decided collectively that we would agree to this reality, that is obviously very painful, because the majority of the human race experiences a large degree of pain and suffering – both personally, when it comes to the disease of the body and things like that; growing old; suffering; dying. Right the way through to collectively, where we have whole masses of people dying before, what we call, their time, and so-forth.
[00:51:04.17] Mary: And people suffering with poverty, crime, relationships.
[00:51:09.01] A.J.: In half the world women are struggling, still, with regard to the way to how they’re treated.
[00:51:13.10] Mary: Yes. In their basic, like, the way they’re treated in their families, in their society.
[00:51:19.26] A.J.: In society, and so-forth. And so, all of these things are indicating we’re in a lot of pain and suffering, as a society; and yet, we still don’t see that that’s because we created our own ways. And we’re not honouring the fact that these are our creations.
[00:24:49.27] Mary: Yep. Alright. Again, we’re only a page into the chapter, but he brings up something else that’s quite important. Just there in the next paragraph, he begins to say : Activity is the natural heritage of the soul, excelsior its motto, and holiness its goal; thus their united endeavour had been to arouse in me a great desire to reach out after the ideals which ever lie on before; to realise the fact that the legitimate satisfaction of man can only be achieved when, like the Psalmist of old, he awakes to the consciousness that he has attained to the likeness of God.
[00:25:38.01] A.J.: Mmm. Some pretty important things there, actually. Particularly this side of the activity of the soul. Like, I see a lot of people, on earth in particular, in this state of what you would classify as ‘blissful ignorance’ and ‘blissful desire to remain inactive’; and it’s a very temporary bliss, because nothing really comes of it. No real progress is ever made; and on top of that, many of these people arrive in the spirit world in the hells, because of their lack of desire; and they don’t know anything about desire, in fact. They neither know what it looks like to have a desire unfulfilled; or fulfilled; nor do they know what it looks like to have a desire in the wrong direction compared to the right direction; or in a loving direction compared to an unloving direction. And because they don’t understand desire at all, they sit in places of stagnation for such long periods of time; and they are some of the most difficult people to help in the spirit world, actually. These people who sit in the stagnation; in the desire for ignorance; and the desire for not doing anything, just sit there, hoping that some external force will come to their aid; and it never does. Until they learn the lesson that activity is required on their part before any real change is going to occur.
An extract from a conversation about chapter 14 of ‘Through the Mists’ with Jesus and Mary Magdalene . ‘Through The Mists’, Chapter 14 – The Relationship of Sleep to Death
[01:36:29.23] A.J.: Of course, it’s a matter of developing trust, isn’t it? So, for example, if somebody tells us twenty-five things that are right, then there’s a chance that twenty-six things that they tell us might be right too. If they tell us in such a manner that is driven by love, and we can feel the love, then there’s much higher chance that the next thing they tell us will be true. If they tell us twenty-five things that are right, but we feel a feeling of anger or rage or other negative emotions from the person who’s telling us, then there’s a chance that we’re being manipulated through the telling of Truth. If they’re telling us the truth to make us feel good about ourselves to feed an addiction, there’s a pretty high likelihood that there’s something wrong and amiss with the person who’s telling us the Truth. And that applies whether they’re on the earth or in the spirit world. So, the key is going to be, the fruitage of the person. If, in the end, the prophecy turns out to be true, as he points out, then, of course, he was a true prophet. And, by the way, people who want to influence us negatively can be true prophets. It’s like a person coming to tell you the Truth about something, just to hurt you, even though it is the Truth. You can feel if you are sensitive – and this is what he’s talking about and referring to when he says : like every other gift of God, this requires a most careful development and education. What he’s talking about is the gift of God’s to be able to sense the feelings of other people. This is a beautiful gift of God, and it actually helps us determine greatly a person’s intentions. If we can truly feel the feelings coming from another person, we will understand why they are saying a particular thing to us; and if we understand why, then we will know who we can trust. If they are saying something to us out of rage, anger – even though it’s true – then we know it’s not fully trustworthy because the spirit in which it is delivered is untrustworthy. The spirit in which it is delivered has errors in it. If, though, it’s given in love and consideration and kindness; and respect for our free-will; and it’s still delivered to us; and it turns out to be true, then it’s highly reliable and something we can work with in our future.
1 – What do I believe from my childhood about –
Strength, perfection, gender, holiness, self-expression, parent, society, emotions, work, fun, moral, ethics, security, lack?
2 – What do I do to avoid feeling childhood beliefs?
Addictions and supporting beliefs “….does everyone understand the relationship between these belief systems now that are inside of you; and you as an adult going through your life? Can you see the relationship of how they’re affecting you? Yep. It’s very important you see the negative side of this because that will help you make the decision to make a different choice. See, if you believe that doing all of these things in this way that we’ve brought up is actually ‘good’ you’ll never make a different choice. But if you start seeing that every one of these things must be affecting you; your intellect; your decisions; the way you see the world; the way you see yourself; the way you see your environment; the way you see your family, your friends, your husband, your wife, your children, your work and all these other things are all defined by these things that come from your childhood, you’ll start to see that it’s no wonder we’ve got pretty messed up lives half the time. And then you’ll also go : Okay, if that is what is causing me to do what I’m doing now, imagine the life that you really want. How are you going to get there? By changing these – these have to change to get you to have a different life. We need to understand that emotionally – these have to change in order for us to actually have a different outcome. We need to change that relationship. If we don’t see that relationship it’s highly unlikely that we’ll start looking at our addictions, because we have no motivation to look at them. If you believe that you’re life’s all together right now and everything’s great and you’re very, very happy thank you very much, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll change your behaviour or any of your belief systems. But if you can see that the life is pretty messed up right now and there are lots of problems with it that you eventually let yourself connect to and you can see that then you’ll want to change some of these things; and when you want to change some of these things then you’ll want to look at what you do to avoid feeling these things. But for the majority of us, we don’t want to look at what we do to avoid, because we think all these things are true. In fact many of us hold onto them for dear life. Somebody can come along and say : Look that belief is actually false. And you argue with them; you’ll fight with them. Sometimes you’ll fight to the death on one of these things – most of the wars in history have been caused by one of these issues – being out of harmony with love. Most of the deaths in the world have been caused by these issues being imposed upon a group of people in society; so many people, in fact, that they can go to war with another group of people about them. So most wars are caused by a distortion of the truth about these issues. Just even the issue of strength causes wars – what is strength; what is perfection? causes wars. Historically there’s been wars between two different types of religious faiths because of their definition of perfection; or their definition of what makes you holy. So once we start seeing : Wow, the effects of these things all being childhood beliefs that are out of harmony with God’s definition of love. Once we start seeing it, we go : We need to change this; inside of myself I need to change this; I need to start doing something actively and urgently to change this, is the feeling we would have. We wouldn’t want to keep on accepting what we currently accept.” Jesus
