Victor, from Brazil, is a 24-year-old Starseed, an obviously very old soul of deep, deep, spiritual capacity. His question concerns the mystery of spiritual power which has always radiated within and around him. In one aspect, he wonders:
- If his foreknowledge of an event has caused it to happen?
- Also, does, or can, his strong desire for a certain result, actually materialize that effect? Or, would such an event, or personal meeting have happened anyway?
- Do souls, born with such a creative power determine their own morality about how to use that power: either for personal gain and ego, or for the advancement and progress of the general good? Is this an either/or decision?
Oh my Holy Spirit, You were there with us throughout the whole conversation. Might this be a good time to address the question of the Use of Personal Power? Let’s start with the garden variety of power in an example that might apply to everybody. When a person wields some sort of authority – from a big kid on the playground, to the head of a large corporation, let’s examine the fundamental choices that they must make. Could You comment, oh my Holy Spirit?
“What you are trying to define is the changing situation that somebody has to undergo in order to climb the rungs of the ladder. Literally, to grow beyond their own boundaries and to take others into consideration. Isn’t that your basic question? How to move off of dead center into the stream of life within a population?”
Yes, that’s it, exactly. Power and judgment are the factors such an advancement needs. How do we handle that?
“Basically, it’s easy to forget the judgment part when you’re in control of ever-expanding responsibility, especially if there are personal advantages to be gained. Right at first, every organism must be self-centered to survive. It must breathe and take care of its own basic requirements, at least in its own conscious perception. Hopefully, it will have parents and society helping it to survive. But, all of its instincts are devoted to self and self-discovery. That’s neither good nor bad. It’s just the way of life at its primitive stages. Societies go through such training levels, too.
After while, power, in the form of competence, begins to take the front seat and the being learns self-sacrifice in favor of others. Parents must learn this skill, as must Presidents. In perfect proportion, this is the natural way of life and that same powerful one will eventually have to accept help from others, once again, as aging and decline set in. What you are speaking of are the refinements, or the lack of refinements, along the way. Will they take all of the food for themselves, beefing up to unhealthy proportions, while others starve? Will they steal and cheat if they have access to money?
Even to the hidden forms of Power: Some people have an unusual control over unseen Forces. Do they abuse that talent or use it sparingly for the greater good? Do they understand why they have such talents in the first place? If they have psychic information, for instance, do others have to pay exorbitantly to hear a mere message that the Upper Kingdom wants the psychic to deliver for nothing? It is often true that people with hidden powers don’t understand why they have been allowed to bring into life on such a material planet, such forces that have an Unseen cause or effect.
The truth is, that they can’t perform these feats alone. There is always Somebody Up Here making that action come about. And, it’s often for the benefit of another person. The psychic one is really just the delivery system. It is well and good to charge a minimum fee, if there are expenses involved; but it is not approved to make a fortune or a great ego trip out of this talent. The One on The Other Side becomes an errand runner and the abuser accumulates a large, unpaid debt to their Unseen Helper. This debt will be collected when they come Up Here, after their death. When they make an industry out of a normal communication skill, they will really regret it when they find out how permanently impoverished they are on the Eternal Side.
Had they chosen to give away their specialized power or talent while in a brief life on Earth, they would have been taken into a Higher Dimension and rewarded forever, as this is how the human race advances. Their main earthly objective might well have been to serve as an example as to how to administer such skills. But, if their behavior had followed the negative example of a material existence, they could have set back those humans who listened to them, by being a selfish example.
This is the heavy burden which Choice provides and Free Will is the way that Choice becomes the constant responsibility of all. Then, Example takes over, for better or worse, in every case!”
