Hell on Earth?

William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, gives us a different perspective on Hell.

Would you please explain the concept of the Devil and Hell, and if they are really real?

The Council:  Well, we might say this that you are in your hell right now. As far as hell and its traditional picture or symbols used, it doesn't exist. Hell is now. The equivalent of that in the hereafter comes through the process of this life and that is the turning away from your own spirituality, from your own godliness, turning away from the Divine Source of life, and in this respect then you turn away from God and look into the darkness of your own shadow. This can be understood as hell, for in that darkness then you must find that spark of God within you and desire it strong enough so that you can again turn to the Light, and in so doing then the Light flows into you, fills you, and then you become a beacon of God or God's Light.

In relationship to the symbolism used for hell, the fire, what have you. During that period when you rediscover the light that lies within you, during that period when you are looking into your own darkness, you begin to realize what you have done in the previous lifetime, what you have set aside, and a hunger grows within, a hunger that is so strong that it becomes a burning passion, and again we are not talking about burning in the sense of fire, but the zeal necessary to return to your original state, the acceptance of what you have done to yourself, the distance you have placed between you and the Light, and so this hunger to return to your rightful place drives you with a great passion, a burning passion, so that you eventually begin to turn back to the Light. This process happens as one is willing to accept those actions that one is responsible for that demean them as a god, that insulted their own godliness.

Worry not for fire and brimstone. As possibly a tongue in cheek statement, more than likely you will wish that fire and brimstone did exist as opposed to what you will experience. It hurts deeply when you realize what you were, what you allowed yourself to become. It is an insult to self. Yet, regardless of how far we have moved away from the Light, regardless of how dark our own shadow is, we all can turn around and face the Light once again. Once one has done that, then one is ready to begin the review in full understanding, and after that review then the decisions are made in respect to what you will choose for a next lifetime.

Communicating with the Higher Self - Part 2

In this follow-up to the previous posting, William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, tells us what is necessary when receiving guidance from the all-knowing. 

The Council:  Here is the thing:  All knowledge must be applied or at least, at the very least, an effort must be made to apply it. Consequently, if one just has knowledge and does nothing with it, one gains nothing, one adds nothing to one's self.  The discovery of knowledge is not that hard to come by, but the practice of it is.  It is necessary for insights, wisdom, what have you, that one gains either about themselves or about situations, it is necessary then to apply that in your relationship with others.  In fact, it becomes an obligation to do so.  The abandonment of that obligation or the lack of fulfilling that obligation can in most cases create additional karmic debt.  Once you know something then you are responsible for it.  Once you know something consciously, then you are responsible for it. 

That is why, at times, we somewhat trip lightly around an answer because we realize that a more direct answer would not be beneficial to some individuals.  By stepping around the answer or giving it to you indirectly, then some individuals who need the information can understand it.  Those who are not able to deal with the responsibility of a more direct answer are not burdened unnecessarily or too soon or prematurely.

Communicating with the Higher Self

 

In this exchange between a questioner and William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, the questioner wants to know how to “tune in” to the all-knowing.

Questioner: … you have to be able to communicate with your soul in the all-knowing. Are there any steps, either through prayer or meditation, along with meeting other people and having the exchange of communication, that we could practice to get us closer to that knowledge?

The Council:  The simplest way is meditation.  The other effort that must go hand in hand is the prayer factor.  If you pray to realize your full self or to know yourself or to experience more godly qualities, and then meditate, what you are doing in the prayer is setting a stage and the meditation then allows that stage to be filled with activities.  Once the activities have happened or, in another words, once something has been given to you in meditation, you must then act upon it.  Unfortunately, very few people, if they do pray and meditate will act upon the guidance given. You will never know yourself completely, because it would hinder you in your development or dealing with the material world, so there will always be a certain amount of your self that will be veiled.  If one would exercise prayer and meditation as an effort to discover yourself a little better or become aware of yourself a little better, and at the same time practice at developing a more appreciative attitude towards those around an individual, then sufficient growth can be made with a minimum amount of effort.  If one then puts out a great deal of effort, much growth can be gained.  Simply knowing yourself will give you no real growth, at least not in the areas that an individual would need.  It is the relationship and the interaction with other individuals that truly brings about the necessary growth.

Predestination versus Free Will

The Council has stated many times that we plan our entire lives in detail before we are born. In this exchange, William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, gives us insight into our life planning and the part that free will plays as we progress through that life.

Questioner:  If all things are preordained, if all of our lives are laid out in lessons to be learned before we come back or even as we come back, then all the struggle that we have in this life to change something that we already are or that we do not want, doesn't mean anything?

 The Council:  Oh, but it does.

 Questioner:  What does it mean?

 The Council:  You have laid out a life plan.  You have predestined yourself to an experience, but it is not a permanent predestination.  It is only an agreed-upon situation that can change according to what you at a soul level determines as each experience comes your way or as each day passes.  Do you understand what we are saying?

Questioner:  Our soul, once we are here and faced with these situations, our souls can make these changes?

The Council:  Oh yes, yes.  You, as a soul, you, the real you, the highest part of you, is in constant control.  It will determine moment by moment whether it will keep its spiritual contract that it has made with others that are part of your life, it determines moment by moment whether it will keep its agreement.  If not, then truly you would be predestined; even though it would be your own choice, you would be predestined and nothing is predestined.

Questioner:  How would you be in contact with your soul?  How would you know?

The Council:  Well, at a conscious level, you will not.  It is not for you to know at a conscious level.  You are to work from all that is built up in you through your conscious level.

Questioner:  How do you become aware of that then?

The Council:  Well, there is only so much, as we said before, that you can become aware of.  After a certain point it overwhelms you and you become incapacitated, would probably be the closest word one could use, you could not function.

Being Equal to God in Quality

William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council, gives us some insight to our relationship with our God.

Questioner:  Is it good to say then that when we consider ourselves as part of God's being or plan that we are the reflection, reflection is a good term to use for that part of God that is in us?

The Council:  Well, yes, but that only tells part of the story.  You should be a reflection of God in the world.  You should be a reflection of God inside of you.  You are a part of God, and you are like Him. The difference between you and The God is that your potential, your potential is for quality but not quantity.  Do you understand that?

Questioner:  Yes.

The Council:  Unfortunately, people, souls, individuals, entities, have made the choice not to be like God.  They have chosen to be the way they think it will be better.  They have chosen not to move in the ways of the Great Creator or the Infinite Father but to move in their own ways, which is less than He, consequently, it is not whole, consequently, it does not work.  Does that make sense to you?

Ther First Commandment

 

William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council has talked often about the value of the Ten Commandments as a source of positive guidance in our lives. The following gives their thoughts on the first commandment.

The Council:  All of Creation is based on those Ten Commandments or ten principles of the Divine.  They have been reduced so that they can be applied by individuals to individual situations, but all that is necessary to begin to comprehend the magnitude is to allow those principles to expand a little bit more with each time that you meditate on them.  And if you are a proficient meditator, it will not take too long for you to begin to realize the immensity of those ten simple statements, the magnitude that lies within their meaning.  Take, for instance, what is the first Commandment?

(pause)  Well, please do not overpower us with your knowledge. Questioner:  "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have strange gods before me."

The Council:  What does that say?

Questioner:  There is only one God.

The Council:  That is about what it says in the other forms.  Someone repeat the first Commandment, so that all can hear.

Questioner:  "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have strange gods before me."

The Council:  Very well.  What is the first segment of the Commandment? Repeat it, please. 

Questioner:  "I am the Lord thy God."

The Council:  Very well.  Now, think, all of you, think.  "I am the Lord thy God."  Is that stating that an outside source is making that statement?  Or is it stating that an inside source is making that statement?  It is stating both.  Once you recognize that there is an outside source of Creation, and once you accept that as a truth, then you will begin to realize that there is also an inside source. So the first principle, Divine principle, is that you must recognize that outer Divine Source, but you must also, to complete that, recognize that inner divine source.  Now, would you please continue with the rest.

Questioner:  "Thou shall not have strange gods before me."

The Council:  Ah.  "Thou shalt not have strange gods before me."  The outer source is saying to the inner source, "Do not have those things before you, those gods before you, that are not the same as you." If you do not worship an outside source that is alien to THE Creative Source, then there will be no alien source or alien god in you.  Does that make sense?  In actuality, what it is saying is that this Divine Source, this Divine Creator, is instructing you in the awareness that you are also divine, but in order to maintain that divinity you must not worship any other god.  Because once you worship another god, then you are no longer a reflection of that Creative God, because that Creative God IS the source of all that is, and once you turn your back on that, then you become less.  We could go on and on and on to explain it, but that is just a small, little hint of what it is saying beyond the words.  Thank you for your assistance.

The Living Essence of all of Creation

God is the living essence of all that is created spiritual and material, and as this essence you simply feed off of it, you are suspended in this ocean of love, in this universe of love, you are similar to a beautiful goldfish in a bowl, but a bowl that is so tremendous that it encompasses all that is ever and ever will be created, and each of you are capable of having your own universe to work in.  You cannot live or exist in any place without touching the life-giving love of the Infinite Father.

 As a beautiful piece of needlepoint or tapestry is developed, it is first constructed from a backing, the stitches are placed very precisely in certain places in this backing, and as time progresses then a beautiful picture is formed and the backing is completely covered.  You are the beautiful stitches; the backing that holds those stitches together is the Divine: that is the basis of the tapestry, the stitches are of no value without the backing, but the backing has a value for anyone else who wishes to apply their stitches to it.  The foundation is always the necessity.
