There is a deep desire to develop… to grow and expand, to seek out more Knowledge, more Wisdom, to reveal the great mysteries, and finally understand what Life and Creation is all about. Do we have past lives… is there life after death… can we predict the future… and what about all those Psychic and even Magical Gifts… can we truly speak with Angels and Guides or be visited by great Ascended Masters… and my favorite question: “and why would they want to do that…” ? The simple answer to all this is a resounding Yes!
Yes, we can do all this… Yes, Life and Creation is a lot more wonderful – and complex – than we’ve ever thought it could be… Yes, there are many multiple dimension, many Celestial Beings… and, best of all, all those great Masters were just like you and I when they first started… So, hey, if they can do it, then so can we… all it takes is a true desire to grow and evolve… a commitment to the work … and a lot of safe instructions. For all that there is out there, there are many things that either lack the proper foundation [so they are weak at best, or downright dangerous]… or too often are made up junk, designed to use and abuse you… and ultimately cause your own destruction… Why would anyone do this…?
Easy – if you have the potential – and the real desire – to grow, expand your Consciousness, quicken your Spiritual Evolution, and aim to become a master… well then, you are a threat to the Dark Brotherhood … so it’s easiest to block you now before you become too knowledgeable. But don’t let all this worry you too much – you know what they say:- “If you make much noise you will attract much attention…” and not just from those that would oppose you, but also from those who will help, guide, and shelter you.
…there’s just one little thing, which – well – may actually turn out to be a little Big Thing… it’s called Free Will, specifically your Free Will… You have to decide – not only through your passion, determination and enthusiasm – but also through your careful examination and discretion – and choose the correct Path for you … as I’ve said, there’s a lot of junk info out there [Fake News indeed !!] So, look deep within you… find out why you would want to do this… and seek out the Lineage you truly belong to… What’s this, you say ?
Ok, basic Development 1-0-1 … if someone tells you to ‘meditate’ there are literally hundreds of different styles and techniques of Meditation… If you know which ones resonate best with you, then you progress quickly… if not you simply become more and more frustrated, negative, angry and even resentful.[and by the ones that are best for you I do not mean the ‘easiest’, rather the ones that truly have an effect on your Inner Light and Consciousness … and this could be ones that truly make you think, and not just offer ‘a glamorous phenomena’] So, now it’s all up to you [remember ‘Free Will’… use it consciously]… and good luck… Oh, if you should screw up, don’t worry too much, that’s what Karma is for… after all you have plenty of future incarnations to get it right … [joke, you really don’t have that much time left to get it right – we are in the Quickening, if you can tell…]
