♫Every night I say a prayer in the hope that there’s a heaven And every day I’m more confused as the saints turn into sinners All the heroes and legends I knew as a child have fallen to idols of clay And I feel this empty place inside so afraid that I’ve lost my faith♫
I’d wager to bet that most everybody has been there before – Rock Bottom.
For you it may have been because of a divorce, a death of someone close to you, a loss of a great job, a drug addiction, a mental or physical illness, or perhaps just a series of unfortunate events.
It’s the lowest of the low, and if you haven’t seen it yet in this life then I suppose you are lucky.
For those who have been there before, you may have prayed or even cried out to God to help you. The story like was told in the last post “A Diamond in the Flesh” would have been just the ticket to get you up off the floor and give you hope and courage – knowing that you now have the clarity of vision to move back on up and out of your dark place.
Long before science surfaced as a force of nature within the minds of human beings, spirituality and superstition reigned. The evolution of the human species and the human mind is a fascinating story and at our present moment in time we are gifted to be able to bear witness to the communion of science and spirituality, which enables us to for the first time in our collective history to dispel both the superstitions of humankind and the hubris of the material sciences.
At the root of the timeless human quest for a deep understanding of our existence is the drive to find the source of consciousness, that precious gift of the cosmos that animates our bodies and provides a foundation for the intellect. For spiritual people who’ve committed themselves to an esoteric and experiential understanding of our mental universe, it is observed that human consciousness is a vast and endless sea, multi-layered and multi-colored with infinite possibilities. For the scientifically oriented minds among us, this explanation does not hold water as it is too aloof and immeasurable, defying the demand for reproducible data, as consciousness and spirit have as of yet evaded measure by our ingenious devices and analytical technologies.
AngelicView: Here is a great example of ADC (After Death Communication).
This lady is a doctor (I’m thinking she said she is a “Craniopathic”… remembering from last night… which is a Chiropractor who specializes on the head) and she realized that she seemed to be picking up the energies or emotions (such as anxiety, sadness, or anger) from her patients. Seeing many patients in a day, this was beginning to take a toll on her. We know this to be someone who is empathic – they are somewhat psychic in a sense, but rather than picking up specific information from others, they feel just the way the other person is feeling.

As a side note, I wanted to say something about this to you. I’ll use myself as an example to get across a point. The point is that the world truly does take all kinds.
While I have empathy for people, and can relate to their problems or feelings, I don’t generally take on the feelings of others. I can also feel that there are negative or positive energies in a room without letting it affect me. I was beginning to feel that I was somehow missing something or perhaps not doing something right because I’m not empathic – like many Spiritual people say they are. But over some time I realized that I couldn’t do my job as a nurse if I was!
I have to deal with sickness and misery at work, and I have to be strong for them. If I was empathic, I would not be able to be strong – I would break down and I wouldn’t be effective at all.
And so if you are not empathic, please don’t think that there’s anything wrong with you! You are the way you are for a reason, and certainly not less than anyone else – who is the way they are for their reasons.
AngelicView: Um – yes! Although I have written articles on this subject, I highly recommend this video anyway if you are interested in the subject. Robert Schwartz is the Author of “Your Soul’s Plan”, a very popular book (although I have not yet read this one, I have heard of it over and over). In this interview with Bob Olson, Robert has gone into much more detail that I have in my articles. Among other things, they discuss:
Why do bad accidents happen (like, when someone becomes a paraplegic, for example)?
Were our pets planned?
What about Free Will and the Law of Attraction?
Could I have prevented my loved one’s death?
Why do some people die young?
I have watched the first video all the way through and completely agreed with everything he said, based on my own studies. I have included the second video of another interview with the same man that expands on the first.
Does our Soul Plan our Life’s Challenges Before Birth?
Video Description: In this interview, I talk with Robert Schwartz, author of Your Soul’s Plan, about how our souls plan our challenges in life on purpose. If you’ve ever wondered why bad things happen to good people, Robert Schwartz shares with us his conclusions about that topic based on years of research. This video conversation offers hope and understanding about the challenges we meet in life, and it might even leave you with a sense of inner peace and acceptance in the face of your challenges — or at least help you believe there is meaning to your suffering and that you’re not merely a victim of unlucky circumstances. I’m excited to present this conversation to you, so I hope you won’t miss it.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV http://www.afterlifetv.com
In this world filled with all different types of people, with all different identities and interests, can we all find a way to pull together and love each other, just for the pure fact that we are all Human Beings, and we are all in this world together?
“How do we stop racism? Stop talking about it. I’m going to stop calling you a white man, and I’m going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.” ~Morgan Freeman
How about adjusting your line of thinking to… we are all Human Beings?
“It is a very natural human trait to destroy that which frightens us.”
~ Laurell K. Hamilton, Guilty Pleasures
Do you know that someone who is gay made that choice before they came here to Earth? They did that to challenge their spirit. Does that frighten you? Do you know that a gay person is probably a lot braver coming into this world as a gay person than a straight person is? Let’s put them, also, into the category of a Human Being. Don’t do it for me, do it for your own soul evolution.
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
Did you know that that dirty politician who’s filthy rich and is making decisions that don’t benefit the people whom he is representing is made up of the same star, love, and light material that you and everyone else is? He has guardian angels, and guides, and he will make his way to the heavenly realms just like the rest of us.
“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” ~Black Elk
There is some part of “We are All One” that many people are not understanding here. This is not aimed at any one person but to all the people who have attempted to comment on this site hatred in the name of Christianity. It won’t be tolerated, and your comment will get thrown in the trash bin. I hope you can get on the Evolution Train along with the rest of us. I think that would make Jesus happy 🙂
In my view/experience, each individual being as we know it, consists of a lower, incarnate self, and a higher self, which is the same one being, just different levels within its own essence.
The higher level of this consciousness has access to (or is) intelligence beyond time and space. It knows and sees so much more, and it guides and loves that fraction of itself which it has send into incarnation. Like a guide, like an unconditionally loving teacher, it is present to its small part(s).
This level of ourselves has access to the capabilities of these higher levels.
In the most dire of circumstances, when you find yourself asking God, Life, or your Higher Self in utter desperation: “Why me?? Why would you do this to me??”
That unconditional, higher level of your very own Self, would want you to know its answer: Continue reading →
