Why some Lives are Filled with Problems - Part 5

In the fifth part of this six-part series we are told about the different forms of love that we can practice in our day-to-day existence and how practicing them leads us to a higher spiritual plane. Again, at the end of this quote William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, gives us important thoughts about life.

The Council:  A few points or steps in expressing that godliness that lies within you is to be able to love others without judgment, to be able to accept the need to love without anything asked in return, to love without any strings attached. This is a spiritual love.

Another love that you must attempt to practice is the love that you have for your family, for your loved ones, for your spouses, for your children, for your parents, and that is a love of taking care of, nurturing. Another form of love is what is commonly called brotherly love, but it also indicates a friendship love, a respect for other individuals, and a concern for other individuals. There is still another love and that is a community love or a communal love, and this type of love, it is a reaching out, it is becoming active in community projects that uplift the community, that benefit the community, that adds to society as a whole. If you take these different forms of love and attempt to practice them in your life, if you begin to think and act upon a decision as opposed to a reaction, your life will begin to improve immeasurably because you will have begun to realize your true spiritual potential. You will begin to realize that with all your good aspects, with all your positive aspects, and with all your not so positive aspects, you have a uniqueness to give to mankind. Your mission in life, and all have a mission, is to offer yourself, your love, to your fellow man.

Spiritual growth is not a way of life that asks you to do without, but it is a way of life that asks you to give so that there is a greater room within to receive. Matter, creation, life, the earth, is in existence because of a consciousness. Your life is in existence because of a consciousness that you have. Matter can be looked upon as the effects, and consciousness is the cause. To change your life into something more positive filled with greater joy and peace, change your consciousness ever so little, if that is the best that you can do, and your life will improve, your happiness will be assured, your joy and your peace will be yours. Spiritual growth, and this is an important statement, cannot be gained through the knowledge that you have or the wisdom that you have, it cannot be lost because you may have a lack of knowledge or wisdom, spiritual growth is gained only by what you do with what you have. This Divine Essence will accept you as you are, if you will only allow that to happen.

Why some Lives are Filled with Problems - Part 4

In this quote from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, they tell us how we earn entrance into the heavenly realms. The last sentence in this quote is truly a key to our success in life.

The Council:  The destiny that you have once you leave the material manifestation is not measured by how many good things you have done as opposed to how many bad things you have done, but it is measured by the true heart's desire. There are many things in life that you do that you wish you had not done, that you do not seem to be able to get full control on, will that hamper you from the God-Made Heavenly Realms?  Not necessarily, not necessarily. If the circumstances in life have been such that you are not capable of certain things, does this withhold you from the God-Made Heavenly Realms?  No. What will allow you entrance into the God-Made Heavenly Realms is when you ask yourself, "How much did I do?  How much did I really try?"  The answer that you give yourself will determine which of the Heavenly Realms you will go to. This Divine Essence does not judge you. This Divine God does not judge you. He does not weigh your good faults and your bad faults. He accepts you just as you are, all the good in you and all the bad in you, all the positive and all the negative. But you see, deep in you is a god in the making, a rediscovery of self, taking that divine essence, that divine spark, that spiritual electricity, and bringing it into the totality of your consciousness, your soul, your physical life, and allowing it to manifest to those around you. That is what life is about. A quality life or a spiritual life does not depend on how much you have; it depends on how much you have given of yourself.

Why some Lives are Filled with Problems - Part 3

In this third section of our six-part series William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, continues with the theme of improving our lives by growing in self-respect. They offer an essential "helping hand" to the process of spiritual growth.

The Council:  So, to change your life, to make it more productive, to give you more in life of what you want, to bring a spiritual development or growth to yourself, first love yourself. Have a self-respect, a self-esteem for yourself, and then create an image in your mind of yourself, create a positive image of yourself. A helping hand or an essential aspect of spiritual growth is something that your world today dislikes. Most of the world today feels this thing is not good, is old-fashioned, is unworthy. What is this thing?  It is discipline. In your society today, the word "discipline" is a vile word. It is dirty. It is unacceptable. Your society feels that discipline means to do without. This shows a lack of wisdom and insight because discipline does not mean do without, discipline means gain control of yourself so that you can have all that you wish in life, so that you can benefit from all experiences, so that you can have a life of peace, of joy, of happiness, so that you can have spiritual growth and all the material things in life that you wish. Discipline does not mean to do without. Discipline means to take control of yourself, give yourself a direction in life and follow that direction, by making conscious, well-thought-out decisions. Do not react, but act. Gain control of your life, gain control of yourself. Think about each challenge that comes to your life, each crossroads that you come to. Discipline means to gain all that you wish to gain. It does not mean to do without. Those things that you can control, wonderful, control them. Those faults that you may have that you cannot control, at least, with discipline, you are able to practice a degree of moderation. And so that which you cannot control, at least moderate it to a degree.

Why some Lives are Filled with Problems - Part 2

This is a continuation of the information given by William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, during their first trance for the general public. In the previous quote they explained how poor choices in life can lead to other, more severe, poor choices. Here they tell us how we can stop the process of poor decisions and return to our chosen life path.

The Council:  How does one begin to correct the situation?  How can one return back to that peace, that calm, that still lake?  One must begin to think and then act as opposed to reacting. To change your life, you must begin to act instead of react. What is necessary then to begin to act in a more godly way?  A keystone in spiritual growth or development is this:  You cannot grow one iota if you do not love yourself. The problem with the world today is that it does not love itself, it loves things, material possessions. But the individual creations of the Divine, within life, do not love themselves. They have lost that insight that they once had to their true value. So the first step one must take is to begin to love themselves, not in an egotistical way but in a godly way. Then one must begin to respect themselves, to have self-esteem, again not in an egotistical way but in a godly way. You must remember that there is a value to you regardless of how lacking in love you are or how many things you have done that you are not proud of, there still is a value to you. You have something to offer to mankind that only you can offer; no one else has that ability, that quality, that presence, to offer. You are a unique individual and only you can fulfill your mission in life. No one can fulfill it for you. So in that sense you are extremely important in all of creation. You are of true value because you have something to give. Do not worry what it may be, but think of giving of yourself. Create a self-image for yourself. Begin to think of yourself as a better person than what you presently think of yourself, again not in an egotistical manner but in the sense of having a respect for yourself, knowing that you do have something to offer that no one else can give.

Why some Lives are filled with Problems - Part 1

This is the first of a six-part series delivered by William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, during their first trance for the general public. In this series of quotes they explain, in picture form, how poor choices in our lives can lead to future problems which might never have occurred if we had taken more time to seek a better solution.

The Council:  Reality is a collection of all of you creating together, not as individuals but as members of an orchestra. You are in concert with each other. The material manifestation or the earthly life is the opportunity to work with other entities in the growth process; it is a giving and a taking; it is a sharing.

Why are some lives so filled with problems?  Why are some lives filled with so much sadness and sorrow?  Why is it some people never seem to go anyplace?  They seem to stand still. Let us give you a little example of how life works. Although some of you may find this very hard to believe, initially when you made all the spiritual agreements and contracts to experience life with those around you, your life was planned out so that it would be filled with peace, contentment, happiness, and joy. If this be the case, then why are so many lives contrary to this?  Picture your life as a lake, as smooth and quiet as a mirror, a piece of glass. At some time, at some place, at some experience in your life you reached a crossroads where a decision had to be made. A decision was made, but the decision was not as good as it could have been, and so this caused a ripple on the surface and slightly distorted the clarity of it. So as life progressed then another crossroads came, another decision had to be made. The decision was made not through the clarity of the lake or the pool as it was originally, but now that decision is made through that ripple effect, and so the clarity of sight is not there, and again a wrong decision is made causing a greater degree of ripples, more ripples, less clarity, less quiet, less calm, less clear. And as life goes on then, each decision is made through this distortion, through this lack of clarity until finally this peaceful, placid lake, this mirror, is totally distorted, all clarity gone. This is how life becomes a trial. This is how hardships come into being. Once the lake becomes so distorted, then decisions are no longer really made, but instead of decisions they become reactions to emotions and to situations, reactions to emotions and situations.

Growing Spiritually

William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, says that the soul creates the best life plan that it can so that it will grow spiritually.

The Council:  When each of you come into the material manifestation to live a life, to attain that perfect state, believe this or not, your lives are planned out, as a general rule, to be quite calm and peaceful.  You will have a certain amount of sorrow in it, a certain amount of sickness, a certain amount of joy, and a certain amount of work. If you live your life as you generally plan it, it will be filled with a good balance of all things.  Unfortunately, very few individuals have that kind of life because someplace along the line they make a choice based on the selfish ego.  What happens when this occurs is you begin to set up a rippling effect in your life. Instead of that clear picture of choice, the clarity becomes rippled, much as a lake that is very calm, you toss a pebble in it and it creates ringlets that keep going out and out and out.  Once the first choice is made based on the ego and self-serving ego, you create a series of rippling effects.  The next decision in life is looked at through this rippling effect, which gives it somewhat of a distorted picture.  If the mind is not or the conscience is not wise enough to make a choice not based on ego but based on what is best and good and spiritual, the ripples become more distorted, another pebble is thrown in and this is an accumulative error that is created and this continues then through life, which then begins to distort the peace and tranquility that the life was supposed to undergo. 

So each decision in life based on the ego, self-serving ego distorts the view for the next decision.  Someplace along the line one must return to the original clarity of thought or the clarity of vision.  That means that sometimes the rippling effect when a perfect decision is made or a perfect choice is made the consequences of that may not be as pleasing as one would hope.  So, you can reduce this rippling effect or this distortion by going through life making the proper choices.  Life will then begin to level out again.  Now, this is creating your life.  Your talents are the same way.  You create the talent you want.  There is a natural ability to the soul in all artistic and uplifting things. It is part of the soul to express itself in a loving and godly way, in a way of art and beauty.

So it is bringing out this talent, this artistic talent, this beauty of the soul through this rippled existence or incorrect vision or whatever you choose to call it.  So you may be able to reach that perfect balance of meditation or prayer and practice but because of wrong choices you will never attain the respect of the public.  But then, too, one should ask, are you striving for prominence so that the ego is fed or are you striving to produce something beautiful that is uplifting for those around you and for yourself?

Inspiration and Guidance

Mr. LePar’s source The Council says, “Words constitute nothing. Action is proof. It makes it so.” There are philosophies that state that the purpose of life is simply - to experience life. That is it. No right or wrong, good or bad, just experiences. I can say without a doubt that The Council would disagree with this concept. Below is their basic philosophy about the value that each of us have in making our world a better place.

The Council: “Each of you can make a decisive change in yourself and in the world, in your consciousness and in the consciousness of mankind. The world can only experience light if each of you will allow that godly spark in you to shine forth, to brighten yourself and those next to you, and this godly light acts as a contagion as one individual sees your light shine, this stimulates them to allow their light to shine, and eventually all mankind can become abright with the divine that lies within each and every one of you. Regardless of how bad your world may become, regardless of how negative it may become, you are not doomed to that. None of you are. You can make changes in yourself that will definitely, absolutely influence others around you, and they in turn will be able to influence more, and that light, that godly attitude towards life, towards yourself can grow and grow and grow until the entire world is a spiritual place, a heaven on earth, a new world, a new life. You do not need some highly evolved soul. You do not need us. All you need is to know that you can make a change in yourself and thereby begin to change the world. As we said earlier, it is not the wisdom that you have, it is not the knowledge that you have, it is not what you have that will make you spiritual, but it is what you are willing to do with what you do have that will make you spiritual, that will make you godlike, that will make you fulfill yourself, to resume your rightful place in the creation of creation, to again return to your godly state so that you can once again experience that Divine energy, that Divine activity, so that this great Creator, this Father, this Infinite Light, can take you in His Arms and hold you to His Bosom as a precious jewel, a wondrous gem, something of such great and such value that He could not be complete without it. This is your rightful place, this is what you are destined to, sooner or later, one way or another. You may fight your godliness all the way to receiving your crown, but it will be a battle in vain, for you are destined to be with that Divine Presence.”
