“Should we not step in to help them, or at least ensure they don’t destroy themselves?”
‘That is not our role. If anything we have a duty to ensure no one interferes or impedes their development as a species. They have been given freewill which is sacrosanct and necessary for their physical and spiritual development. Part of that development is to exercise their freedom of choice, to make decisions and since they have a lot to learn it means they are going to get it wrong and make many mistakes in their learning process.’
“What if they destroy themselves in the process?”
‘You make it sound as if that were an option available to them. The story we see playing out before us has no end, what they perceive as a tragic end is merely a transition from one chapter to the next. When they close their eyes it is for the briefest of moments in order a page can be turned and in that instant, their story begins again but simply in a different dimension.’
“If that is the case then what is the purpose of life and death?”
‘Both are teachers and bringers of light. Life and death are one and the same, both sit together before the great spirit, neither one stands higher than the other. It is only mans limited perception that colours their imagination. Death has no colour for the Great Spirit can only create that which is a likeness of itself. This is a lesson that mankind is struggling to accept. Everything in their life is a reflection and a projection of what they hold in their hearts and minds.’
“So the meaning and purpose of their life is?”
‘Whatever they want it to be. It really is that simple, but simplicity hides what they are looking for in clear sight, they can’t see what’s in front of them. They are creators of their own universe but instead of embracing this fact they look to others to set them free from prisons created by their own beliefs. Spirituality is simplicity itself yet they seek it in a multitude of religions and belief systems that seek to control and enslave rather than liberate and set them free?’
“Will they survive and evolve?”
‘They have no choice. They don’t realise it yet but they are a spiritual truth demonstrated. What greater gift could the Great Spirit give them than the ability to create the life they choose to live? The true purpose of life, of all life, is to develop and grow, to evolve to the point where it recognises its own spirituality instead of searching for it outside of itself. Knowledge and understanding are the Holy Grail they search for, yet they spend their time looking for an earthenware cup imbued with mystical powers that doesn’t exist. This is another example of the myth paling into comparison to the mystical reality staring them in the face whenever they look at their own reflection.’
“Are they aware of our presence and the role we play?”
‘They all have the potential to sense our presence and know when we are around, to see us and communicate with us, but very few of them do. Their mantra is ‘’seeing is believing’’ without understanding the power of their own belief system. In truth, their ability to see is very limited and their minds act as filters which blind them to a reality which is more substantial than the illusion they live and believe to be real. For them to see they must first begin to believe so that their eyes, hearts, and minds can be opened to receive the truth.’
“Who do they think we are?”
‘As humans they can only speculate on the infinite and the nature of the Great Spirit and those who do his bidding. It gives them peace of mind to give us human characteristics and names they feel comfortable with. These are meaningless to us but we use these definitions to help them focus their attention as a means of communication with us.
Their capacity to learn and their ignorance and fear are both limitless. It’s the quality of their beliefs that create their dreams and nightmares and in doing so they create our image as the brightest light, or the darkest fear. To the Great Spirit we are pure energy, but to them we are Angels and Demons.’
