There is growing recognition among society that eternal spirits, having a human experience, can either choose their journey by reacting to life or by responding. When we are born there exists a natural state of peace, wisdom and love, all of which is affected by outer life experiences. The effects life has on us can either squash our spirit, enhance our ego to lead us down our life path, OR become an invitation to shift our thinking and renew our lives-much like the transformation of a butterfly. Humans can continue to slowly crawl through the dirt of what they perceive and be victims of life, or they can change their thoughts and undergo an equally dramatic transformation. This transformation allows an unfolding of the path to liberation from within the depths of the soul, emerging, after great struggle, as an expression of divinity in the world and evolving from self- imprisonment to growing wings of freedom.
When spirits/souls are born into a human being, they bring with them their infinite natural state of peace, wisdom and love. It is society, up-bringing and mind conditioning that defines how human minds either react or respond to outside forces of life. “The Mother” of White Roses sixth Edition, 1999 said “Never forget that the greater life difficulties, the greater also our possibilities. It is only those who have great capacities and a big future who meet the great obstacles and hardships.” It is the conscious mind that understands living in the dark can either create a hell and a victim status or, knowing, by honoring the dark times along with great times, enables gratitude for the light and mastering positive thoughts and responses to life. Life adversities are an invitation for change into positive energy.
There is a clear and defined difference between reacting to life and responding. The growing recognition of such makes for a realization of one’s true life destiny. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, human beings are made up of a whole. The whole consists of mind, body and soul. When humans allow negative reactions to life, it effects a part or parts of the whole. If either the mind, body or soul is out of balance due to reacting as opposed to responding to life, the energetic health of the whole is greatly affected. The reactions come from ego such as fear, anger and resentment. Only when humans respond through their heart are, they able to experience continuous growth and evolution of their spirit/soul in their daily happiness, peace and fulfillment.
Human beings have free will. It is free will that ultimately defines and creates their life path and destiny. Life can be lived in imprisonment of the mind causing additional life adversities OR not giving life experiences permission to dictate the future of their lives. External life forces do have an effect on the internal wellbeing of humans. Adversities and struggles can elicit the ego to take charge of our lives. The ego is made up of negative thoughts and thoughts are energy. Negative energies of fear, anger, resentment etc. that are not processed and let go of, result in negative patterns, poor health, negative life paths and even affect the lives of others. When humans take the time to allow their heart to feel, process, learn and let go, they are able to respond with positive energy. They understand, that, for every negative there can be a positive outcome. The transformation of human minds and thinking also transitions their perception in how they see this school called life. Their soul awakens.
Not all humans have the strength to overcome reactions of life through ego. They can become depressed, sick in the mind and/or body, substance dependent, suicidal, and experience a lifetime of seeking revenge and selfishness, most of which is fear of the unknown. FEAR is just an acronym for false evidence appearing real. Darkness is an illusion that disappears with the Light. Fear is an illusion that disappears with Love. Ego is an illusion that disappears into imprisonment of one’s mind.
The humans that choose to overcome conditioning, society’s rules and illusions, and the veil that harbors their natural state, can transform and respond to outer life experiences and lead a healthy, fulfilling life, discovering their destiny and purpose. According to Silver Birch, “Grief, sorrow, sickness and suffering are part of the means by which the children of earth are taught the greatest lessons. If truth were to be found with ease, it would not be appreciated. It is because truth comes in the hour of greatest sorrow or suffering that value is placed upon it by the one who is ready to receive. Trite though it may sound, you cannot obtain truth until you are spiritually ready.” This translates to, humans must be willing to face outer life forces, process, accept and let go in order to transform with the whole mind, body and soul. Transformation from life experiences enables human beings to respond instead of reacting.
