Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

How is It Possible There is No Separation Between Spirit and Human?

Jose’s Comments and Questions

Several months ago after reading one of our blog posts about how every human being – as a spiritual being in a human body – creates every aspect of their human experience (pleasant and unpleasant, wanted and unwanted), a thoughtful reader named Jose asked The Council whether humans have the free will and power to create a better-feeling human reality when we feel spirit is creating a reality we’d rather not experience. Jose also asked some additional questions about the nature of spiritual reality and it’s relationship to our human experience.

In response to his questions we did a session with The Council and published 5 separate posts describing The Council’s information and guidance for Jose and other readers interested in this information (links to these sessions at the end of this post). Recently Jose posted a comment expressing appreciation for the information in those 5 posts and how they opened his mind to some new questions. This post is the first in a series that describes two new sessions with The Council on Jose’s recent questions. This post was originally published on July 5, 2013 and has been revised several times as our understanding of these sessions evolved.

Feeling Separate From Spirit

Jose says The Council’s teaching that spirit sometimes creates challenging or difficult human experiences leaves him feeling like a slave or a pet; and spirit seems like an uncaring master who creates negative human experiences (like pain, loneliness, fear, lack, desperation, etc) to satisfy a selfish desire for spiritual expansion. Jose compares spirit to a matador who enters the bullfighting ring for the adrenalin rush, but has no compassion for the bull (which he equates with his body/mind/ego) that is physically hurt, humiliated, and is ultimately killed in the process. Jose concludes, “the mind/body has no choice but to follow blindly and painfully without knowing what the lesson or purpose was, is, or will be” in physical reality.

Jose also asks 3 questions related to these comments: one about why spirit would chose to be born as a child without limbs, one about why a buffer of time is needed between our human desire and our manifestation of what is wanted, and a question about whether it’s possible for spirit and its mind/body/ego to both simultaneously have free will to do what is wanted. Jose politely ends his comment with an apology if his questions sound too harsh, “but would love to know The Council’s opinion on the matter.”

Overview

The two sessions on Jose’s questions generated a lot of thought-provoking information and guidance from The Council – too much to comfortably include in one post. In this first post of the series, we focus on The Council’s advice regarding Jose’s feelings that spirit doesn’t care about the difficulties humans experience, and we address aspects of his question about a child born without arms and without legs.

We plan to follow this post with additional posts on Jose’s questions, and in each post we’ll focus on how you and Jose can feel more connected to spirit’s unconditional love when you feel like spirit, or something else out there, is giving you a hard time.

Praise for Jose’s Questions

Although Jose’s question may seem harsh, The Council offered the following praise for Jose:

“And we applaud him for his thinking, and how he is trying to explore different ideas. And so we hope, as he comes to the reading of this material, that he will begin to let [in] the feelings that will come with the words.”

Mind/Body/Ego is One with Spirit

If you’re looking for some uplifting spiritual reading and you’re not particularly sympathetic to Jose’s point of view, you may be wondering if you made a wrong turn with this post. But The Council says that from the point of view of who you are as an eternal spiritual being, there are no wrong turns in your human experience, only opportunities to use your free will and power of choice to find better-feeling ways of focusing your attention, and allowing more of the feeling of love you are in spirit into your human experience. And that’s a big part of what this post is about.

Every Question is Important

This is the first of several posts describing a 1-hour session with The Council on Saturday, March 30, 2013 to answer recent questions from Jose, Michelle, and D.

Jose’s Question #4

We began the session with Michelle’s question about whether to move to Barnstaple, Devon or Glastonbury (both in England), and when I (Bob) was about to ask The Council D’s question about what she describes as a broken soul contract, The Council interrupted:

“There is a number 4 that we keep seeing; what is that, Bob?”

—The Council
(This formatting throughout the post represents The Council’s comments during our session. Text [in brackets] in these quotations has been added to improve readability and clarity when this seems useful.)

I explained that we have four very interesting questions from Jose and that we answered his first 3 questions based on our understanding of The Council’s teachings because they seemed related to guidance we’ve written about in other posts. It was our intention to ask The Council about Jose’s fourth question in this session and when they asked about a number 4, I assumed they were referring to the Jose’s fourth question. I asked if they’d like me to read Jose’s fourth question to them and they said, “Yes.”

Jose’s Question #4: “If we come to this incarnation to have fun and remember who we really are, why do most people, if not all, fail at this attempt?”

What You Believe is What You Create

How everything works in your existence;
how everything is created;
if you need a law
it is called the law of your beliefs.

If you believe in the law of attraction
it works for you.

If you believe in Murphy’s Law:
anything that can go wrong will go wrong–
it’s going to happen.

If you believe in the law of karma:
that in some lifetime you’ve been very good
and now you will be rewarded,
or you’ve been very bad
and you’ve got a debt to pay–
that is what is going to happen.

The only law we feel you will eventually get to a point of understanding
— and this is for the entire physical existence that you have all created —
you will eventually get to the law of beliefs.

What you believe
is what you will create.

And that is what we wanted to get across today.

There are no restricting laws.
There is no must-have, must-do, must-feel.

What you believe,
what you truly believe,
is what you will create.

So we are taking you
from kindergarten to college.

We are saying it is wonderful;
you can do these things,
read about them,
practice them,
but when you graduate
it will be to the law of beliefs.

Follow these other laws
if they help you,
if it is needed.

But in…we don’t want to say the end
because there is no end…
it will come to: what happens in your life,
to yourself, to the people around you, to your nation,
is what you believe.

You create everything
that you hear,
that you see,
that you experience.

—The Council

Healing Begins

All healing begins
with a change in vibration,
which is caused by a change in thoughts
and a change in beliefs.

All healing starts from within.

July 13, 2011 Thought for the Day

When you say
That you don’t know
What your beliefs are,

We ask you to look at your life
And it will tell you.

Your life
Is the result
Of your beliefs.

July 7, 2011 Thought for the Day

Fear is only something you have created,
Knowing it would bring your full attention
To your beliefs about your limitations.

Fear is only a tool
For your expansion.

July 1, 2011 Thought for the Day

The universe will only bring to you
What matches your vibration.

What you feel,
What you think,
What you believe,
What you say,
What you give your attention to
In any moment;

All of these things
Influence your vibration,
And what the universe
Is bringing into your life.

June 30, 2011 Thought for the Day

All pain and suffering
Comes from a belief
You are only your body.

When you can go within
And experience
That you are really spirit
In a physical body,

Your identification
With pain and fear
Will end.

It is in your quiet times
That this will be revealed to you.

—The Council

March 14, 2011 Daily Thought

If you believe
Your journey is supposed to be
About suffering and lack,
It will be,
But it doesn’t have to be.

Your journey is not supposed to be about suffering and lack.

If you believe
Your journey is supposed to be
About sacrifice and hard work,
It will be,
But it doesn’t have to be.

It is not supposed to be about sacrifice and hard work.

If you believe
Your life needs to be difficult
In order for you to grow spiritually,
You will experience this,
But you don’t have to.

Your life is supposed to be about
Joy, and love, and happiness.

You are here to experience
The lightness of being.

You are here to experience
All the abundance
The Universe has to offer.

And you are here to experience
The ease and power of your creations.
