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.”

How Karma Works

In this selection William LePar's spiritual source, The Council tells us how karma works.

Questioner: So, people really get themselves in a bad way in this life, that is not the way it has to be, like people who deservedly, if I can say that, get ... [a] traumatic disease, that does not have anything to do with the fact that they were real stinkers in a past life, it has to do with the fact that they did not change their way of activity which caused the problems in the past life and is still causing problems in this life?

The Council:  Well, you are oversimplifying it.  There is a direct connection or a link there.  They have not learned to act in love.  They have not learned the respect for oneself that is necessary.  How can you make proper choices, godly choices, if you do not like yourself, if you do not love yourself, if you do not respect yourself?  The only thing that governs you in a case like that is your ego, the immediate what is going to feel good to me now, what is going to please my desires now, and so you act on that.  Does that make sense?

Questioner:  Yes, one other question.  Between the lives, when you are not in the physical and you are laying out the life plan for the next life, are you thinking clearly in a godly self-loving fashion at that point?

The Council:  Well, when the final point of actually planning out the lifetime, you have worked through all this hodge-podge of misthinking and misunderstanding and you have centered back on the proper understanding and that is that evolvement comes through the act of self-love and respect and that same love and respect for others.  So, your life is planned out that way.  That does not eliminate the ego problem you have.  You still have that choice that must be made.  Will you take the avenue that is right or will you take the avenue that pleases you the most?

Questioner:  Where is that ego when you clear everything away and you are making your life plan, you don't have a problem with your ego at that point?

The Council:  No, because the ego is turned into self-esteem.  It is a positive aspect.  You need ego to carry you through life.  There are two types of ego.  There is a destructive ego which is a self-serving ego, and there is the proper ego that fortifies the self-esteem.

Questioner:  That gets out of balance when you get back into the physical world?

The Council:  Yes.

Perpetuating Karma

William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, talks about the mistakes we make and the consequences. This information is a follow-up from the previous posting.

Questioner:  Does that mean if you have a lot of karmic debt and come back and you have planned a life of service but it is relatively peaceful and you start making the wrong decisions, is that sort of unleashing all that load, all the karmic debt, is it more forceful then if you start making the wrong decisions?

The Council:  Well, you generally make decisions of less and less quality which causes you more and more problems.  Do you understand?

Questioner:  Yes.

The Council:  So what happens then is you perpetuate the karmic debt and you add to it. The karma does not dictate tremendous pain and suffering. Karma is paying the price for what you have done, that is all things will return to you.  Well, what creates karma is your withholding of love, and when you do this, this creates all types of problems for yourself and for others.  So, doesn't it make sense that if you plan out a life of service and love to others that that should peacefully correct the karma?  Unfortunately, the ego fouls you up again.  You do not follow the original plan.  Does that answer the question?

Questioner:  Yes.

The Council:  Man has been taught that karma means suffering and pain.  Well, that is man's understanding of the law of the Divine, but that is not the way that the law of the Divine must work.  You make it into a situation where that is the way it works, but it is not necessary for it to work that way.  If you have done dastardly things in previous lifetimes, the only way that you can correct those things is through love, loving yourself and loving others.  So, doesn't it make good common sense to plan out a life of love and service to correct your karmic debt?  Well, whether it makes sense to you or not, that is the way the law goes, that is the universal constant that exists.  Love is the pathway to growth and evolvement, but you people just do not want to look at life and your existence in those terms.

(Editor's note: I took the liberty of adding this in closing to this posting.)

The Council: May the Peace and the Joy of the Infinite Father be upon you all, and may His Light shine down upon you, around you, and within each of you. This is our standard opening blessing at all the communications. We ask that each of you accept this blessing in good will.
