Ask The Council

What will you ask Spirit?

Is God Evolving?

In this post The Council answers a question I (Bob) had recently while reading the book, Conversations With Mary, by Anna Raimondi. Ms. Raimondi is an intuitive, like Cynthia, who is able to communicate with the spirit of the virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. In a chapter titled, Why Are We Here?, Anna asks Mary if God is evolving. The short answer (p. 82) is that God is constant and always the same. This struck me as unusual because I was under the impression from our sessions with The Council that what we call God is continually evolving.

So I asked The Council if God is evolving, they answered, always, which appears to contradict Anna’s message. The Council goes on to say when God decided to create life, little pieces of itself (God’s self) go into every individual, and God learns from these experiences he’s having in each soul that’s creating life. … And so we say, God is evolving, God is always creating more, and is always learning from the experience.

When I ask what Mary may have meant when she says that God’s always the same, The Council says it was Mary’s belief that her God already knew everything that would ever happen. The God Mary believed in didn’t need to evolve. He was the all mighty, the always was and the always will be. No growth is needed in this version of the all mighty God because it was believed it already was and always would be.

When Bob asked if we understand God differently now, The Council says as we learn that we are spirits in physical bodies, and we are creating our lives, and we are learning, God is within us. As we are learning, God is learning.

The Council goes on to say God is always evolving because we, as humans, are always evolving. Nothing is stagnant, nothing stays still, everything changes, everything grows. The more love we feel and show each other, the more love God feels and the more God expands.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance about God’s evolution, and let us know how you feel about it.

Does Spirit’s Pre-Birth Planning Negate Human Free Will?

This post is third in a series describing a session with The Council on Saturday, March 30, 2013 to answer questions from Jose, Michelle, and D. This post focuses on the first of Jose’s four questions and it’s about guidance from The Council in a recent post and the issue of free will:

“In the case of what was shared in Maria’s Plan for a Spiritual Leap, it appears that the spiritual agreement made prior to the incarnation is more powerful than Maria or her friend’s “godly” power to manifest a new reality of survival and togetherness in this lifetime, as if there is no free will in this incarnation.” —Jose

Maria’s Plan for a Great Spiritual Leap

This post is about a question Maria asked after reading a Thought for the Day from The Council titled ‘Everyone In Your Life Was Invited By You‘.

Maria explains her best friend is on his deathbed and she’s experiencing a lot of emotional pain about this. She is asking The Council if it is also with her permission that her friend is exiting her life, because she’s having difficulty understanding why she would agree to ‘loose’ him at this time and in this way.

There is Agreement

“No one comes into your life unless you invite them. Their departing your life is something that they plan along with you, so there is agreement for both of you that when it is time, when you feel you have concluded what you needed to do together, one or both [of you] exit [the physical body].

“And so, although you find this very painful, it has been discussed and planned while you were still in the spirit world.”

Does God Exist?

This is a follow up to previous post titled: Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks. Barry P. read that post and passed along the following anecdote about believing in God. I found it thought provoking and worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it.

The Young Man & The Barber

A young man, while getting a haircut and his beard trimmed, was deep in conversation with his barber. The conversation turned to the subject of God and the barber proclaimed, “I don’t believe God exists.”

“What makes you so sure,” asked the young man?

The barber walked to the window and replied, “All you have to do is look out in the street to realize God doesn’t exist. If God existed, there wouldn’t be any sickness, or pain, or suffering. I can’t imagine a God that would allow these things.”

The young man was about to disagree with the barber when he had a feeling he should hold back. He was surprised by this feeling, but decided to follow his intuition. He tactfully changed the subject of the conversation, but kept thinking about the barber’s comment about God.

As the young man was leaving the barbershop, he noticed through the window a man on the street who had very long, unkempt hair and a long, unkempt beard. This gave the young man an idea.

He turned to the man who just trimmed his hair and beard and proclaimed, “Barbers don’t exist.”

“Are you crazy,” asked the barber? “You just paid me to cut your hair and trim your beard.” I’m living proof that barber’s exist.

The young man replied, “Look out in the street. Do you see that man with long messy hair and a long straggly beard? If barber’s exist, there wouldn’t be anyone who looked like that. I can’t imagine barbers would allow something like this.”

And the young man turned and left.

Believing in a Loving and Benevolent God When Life Sucks

This post is a response to a question for The Council from Chris, who wants to know how she can believe a loving and benevolent God exists when her life feels like evidence of the opposite. Chris asks how she can learn to believe and know she is heard and is important when she’s unable to perceive the presence of a loving and benevolent God in her life.

What Is God Like?

Among people who acknowledge the existence of God or a higher power (92% of Americans according to a university survey) beliefs tend to vary about what God is. According to this survey, beliefs in what God is like tend to fall into the following four types: Authoritarian (31%), Benevolent (25%), Critical (16%), and Distant (23%).

Where is God?

Whether we think of God in one or more (or none) of these four ways, we often think of God as being “out there” somewhere—like in heaven or throughout the Universe—rather than inside of us. But The Council advises all of us that it’s important to find God within ourselves—in our own consciousness. This can be a difficult concept to grasp if we’re accustomed to thinking of God as outside of us and we’re used to looking for evidence of God’s existence out in the world.
