Universal messages from spirit guides and ascended masters
There comes a time in every individual life a realization of a greater purpose other than self. With this awareness begins the search for truth and soul realization.
Who we are, where we are from and where are we going are just some of the questions one might ask. The path to greater wisdom and enlightenment is as easy as tying your shoes. But the mind and ego of man enjoys complicating such a simple task.
If all things are acted upon from the heart in truth and compassion, humanity would not suffer the ills that it does today. If each soul recognizes that they are one with all living and non-living things they will open their hearts and walk in one another's shoes with eyes of compassion and love. Acts of violence and rage are replaced with those of kindness and concern.
We are one race, united for one purpose, evolution and love is the unifying force. Keep it simple

It is not enough that we bring you the power which will lift you up and give peace of mind, strength of body. You on your part must strive to realize your true life. You believe in an invisible life, an invisible power which will heal you of aches and pains, inharmonies, confusion, but this power needs to have a point of entry. You have to prepare your body, your mind, your soul for the inflow of this divine healing. There are many who seek healing without recognizing this fundamental truth that they are spirit; that they have as much to do with their own healing as any healer who tries to help them. It is not in accord with divine law for the body to be healed completely without the soul's cooperation. Before the body can be wholly restored you must play your part; the soul must learn the lesson sickness was designed to teach. Pray therefore that you may understand the cause and purpose of your sickness or unhappiness; and remember that whatever your karma, it is good. It is an opportunity given to you by divine law to grow in spirit.
Bodily sickness is the result of inharmony in the soul; thus, to restore bodily health we must work through the soul, or there will only be a patching up, a temporary relief.
Remember what we have told you of the cause of disease and the source of all healing; remember also that your habitual thoughts either create or destroy. Lack of harmony in your thoughts or in your life brings disease; harmony brings health. Therefore let go all resentment, fear and criticism. Hold only the positive thought of all-good, GOD, and light will flow into you.

As our awareness expands, the physical needs of our body change. It is important to sense when to make a dietary shift to maintain harmony with our spiritual evolution.
Intuition guided by subtle changes in taste, response to textures, quantities and appetite for different types of foods is what acts to guide these changes. It requires the soul to be free to distinguish between immediate needs and responses and responses secondary to habitiual eating patterns, ego, needs, and peer pressure. The decision to eat less or differently is not meant to deprive us but to teach us to eat in harmony with our evolutionary unfolding. This is the art of spiritual nutrition.
To design a diet for ourselves requires a clarity of purpose. Just as an architect does not design a building without the purpose of the building in mind, to transcend the unconscious gobbling of our food, we also need a perspective of what we want from our diet.
The purpose is to develop a diet as an aid to our spiritual unfoldment in the context of right life, right association, meditation and love. To maintain, purify and honor the body, as the physical aspect of the spirit and as the temple for the spirit in a way that keeps our minds clear and our bodies physically able to cope with the demands of the spiritual process of full body enlightenment.
Develop a diet that regularly honors and enhances our food as a main interface between ourselves and nature, that brings us in harmony with nature and its universal laws.
Remember, body, mind and spirit balance. The inner balance of body is most important in order for body to carry out its mission on earth. Absorb what you need at the present, save the rest for a latter unfoldment. Love is the key.
Understand this: The God we know is like a great whirling vortex, out of which comes spirit. This spirit is like a sea, and man is a fish swimming in this sea. This what we might call the ocean of love and mercy.
When the mind of man is illuminated, he becomes a part of God, the realization of the absolute. Illumination comes through waiting upon the Lord, that is, by resting in the consciousness of the omnipresence. It is not through struggle, effort, supplication, or merit.
The higher a soul travels the spiritual path, the less its burdens become, and the easier it is to change swiftly from one course to another. A mind that moves with random speed works in the field of randomity.
God never established an exclusive group for the liberation of man. He has given the power to many for the particular way back to his kingdom. There are certain paths that one must follow, some better than others, because the masses of these particular ways have developed the resources for their chelas in seeking the way. This is because men are at all sorts of levels of consciousness and not all can follow one universal way.
Each man's world is a solid thought or materialized mindstuff. The idea is to bring into expression the good and beautiful. This is done by getting the good and beautiful properly arranged in the consciousness.
So we come to the most important part of life's message. It is not what we do that determines our experience in life, but it is what we expect. Even if you have done all the correct things, and still maintain the haunting fear that things will go wrong, they will go wrong. Is it because you are bad, sinful, or evil? No. It is because you have the belief.
Now you are coming into the level of understanding wherein we cease trying to demonstrate things but, rather, move into a greater expression and find that the things we need are already supplied. We demonstrate the giver and not the gift. We demonstrate God and not the things of God.
Saints, devils and credulous fools are made of the same identical stuff. They all have visions. They see these truths from different aspects. Devils exploit stupidity. They create blinding fear that gives them power over others. Such fear inflates the devil's feeling of importance and it makes the fools thing that the devils are the only safe leaders to follow. But the visions of the saints, like prisms letting light into darkness, diffuses the material fog, the fog that blinds the best of man and makes men victims of want, disease, crime. The visions of the saints let in affluence and magnanimity and vigor. Naturally, the devils hate this. If they can't pervert the saint's vision to their own ends, they try to destroy it.
One of the most prevalent misunderstandings is that the law of God works only for those who have a devout or religious objective. This is a fallacy. It works just as impersonally as the law of electricity works. It can be used for greed or selfish purposes as well as for noble tasks. But hold in mind that ignoble thoughts and cautions inevitably result in unhappy consequences.
The secret of harmonious love is the development of the spiritual consciousness, as nay spiritual traveler will tell us. In this consciousness, fear and anxiety disappear and life becomes meaningful, with fulfillment as its keynote. The individual becomes a dweller in the higher consciousness.
The authorities put a great deal of emphasis on rituals, moral codes, and laws, but seldom do they speak about rising above good and evil, of love and hate, or polarizing upon the dichotomy of good. This is one of the most subtle points of life.
The power of attention is the measure of the inner force. Concentrated observation of one thing shuts out other things and causes them to disappear. The great secret of being spiritually minded is to focus the attention of the feeling of spirituality without permitting any distraction. All progress depends on the increase in the attention span of time. The ideas which impel you to action are those which dominate the consciousness, those which possess the attention.
To the unenlightened this will seem to be all fantasy, yet progress comes from those who do not take accepted views nor accept the world as it is. When we set out to master the a movement of attention, which must be done if we would successfully alter the course of observed events, it is then we realize how little control we exercise over the mind and how much it is dominated by sensory impressions and by being adrift on tides of other men's considerations and environmental moods.
A tense person is wrapped up in himself, his immediate family, the events of the past, the prospects of his future, or how he is regarded by other people.
What does this tension do? It grips. It causes a stranglehold on the channels within him. It cuts off thinking. It is useless for such a person to relax physically as long as he continues to center the mind upon himself. This stranglehold will be there every minute, day and night. When we learn to love others as ourselves, the attention will be focused outwardly, and therefore we will become relaxed. There will be no stranglehold within and the mind will become free.
God gave us dominion through consciousness, and this consciousness which is the creative principle of our body, must also be its sustaining and maintaining principle.
Once you have this principal, you have caught the entire principle of life. Literally, this is the law of life, the substance, what activity, the intelligent directions of life which is within man as well as outside.
We only have to prove this in some one direction and we shall have proved it in every direction. The whole secret lies in the word "heart" or what we call consciousness. An intellectual knowledge of the fact that God is all is of no value. The only value any truth has is the agree of its realization. If we are conscious of the presence of the Lord, if we are conscious of the activity of God, then so it is unto us.
It makes no difference what a man becomes. Greater men than the bishops of the churches have become beggars, not cardinals. Nevertheless, one can become great in God and save many a poor wretch from hopelessness.
Knowledge is one thing, virtue is another. Philosophy, no matter how enlightening it may be, gives no command over the passions, no influential motives, no inescapable principles. It is not worth much in the crises of mankind.
True happiness is a sensation of momentary balance. When man remembers who, and what he really is, he does not wrong and injures no one. Even his worst mistakes turn out to help others and they become profitable lessons for all.
Gradually as man struggles toward God, the illusion of this life loses it hypnotic grip. We begin to be free to think clearly and to solve problems sanely. We leave off trying to fill holes with shadows. Instead, we try to fill them with ideas that develop their own substance. So it follows that anyone seeing profit, is committing spiritual treason. This is why spies and criminals who use clairvoyance, as many of them consciously do, invariably meet disaster. Clairvoyance perverted to treacherous ends becomes spiritual suicide. Sometimes it leads one into the madhouse. It is always, without any exception, without any possible exception, ruinous to the one who misuses it.
Let it be know here and now that all knowledge and all wisdom is never given to a soul. For the world of God is without beginning and without ending, infinite in attributes and qualities, and constantly expanding toward the greater truth and greater Wisdom.
If one prays for an object or desire, verily, it shall come unto him because his mind shall create what he desires. But the true consciousness should never be blinded by that which the intellect devises. When anyone prays to get something, he is acted upon. And if he prays to have his senses acted upon by any outer source, then how will this bring one any true spirituality?
Act, rather that we might give mastership qualities which are already within us. As we unfold constantly to give, we are not unfolding to have our senses acted upon. We are unfolding to give all that we our senses are capable of giving. Then shall our lives be transformed.
And in the transformation, we shall realize all of the capabilities, all of the gifts, all of the demonstrations of life which are radiated by those in the spiritual worlds.
Spirituality is not attained by denying the world, nor by affirming the spiritual world. Spirituality is, because there has never been a time in the world, in the true world, where God, or spirituality, was not.
Illusions are like mistresses. We can have many of them without tying ourselves down to responsibilities. But truth insists on marriage. Once a person embraces truth, he is in its ruthless but gentle grasp.
God is love; God is life: god is spirit: God is all. That is true whether we are saints or sinners. it is true whether we are young or old, Jew, Gentile, Oriental, or Occidental, regardless of creed or color. There is no way in which God can be left out of his own universe, nor can we leave ourselves out of it.
God is: there is always a God. This God is infinite in nature, eternal, universal, impersonal, impartial, and omnipresent. How do we bring God into our individual experience? We must know and practice the principal of the heavenly kingdom until we become proficient in this application. It must be in our God experience. God is and God is here and God is now. But God is available only in proportion to our realization and willingness to accept the discipline that is necessary for the attainment of that selfhood we call God realization.
We must say to ourselves, to God: show us what we must do in order to avail ourselves to this principle, this life, this love and to live the life of should. When we have reached this stay of readiness, we have begun to travel the path which leads to spiritual consciousness.
Unless we feel the actual presence of God then, as far as we are concerned, we do not have realization of this spirit. It is like electricity, which is everywhere, just as the spirit of God is, but electricity is of little use or value to anyone unless it is connected in some way for his particular use. So it is with the spirit of god It is everywhere in an absolute, spiritual sense, but it is only effective in our experience to the extent to which it is realize.
It is possible for anyone to change the trend of his life, not by hearing or reading truth, but by making it an active part of his consciousness in daily experience, until it becomes a habit every minute of the day, instead of an occasional thought. Let God operate in the consciousness morning, noon, and night, until gradually the actual awareness comes. Then we make the transition from being here of word to being doers of the word. Then we shall be living in the world and shall gather in the harvest of souls.

The spirit of the other aspects of yourself contain information of the whole. This knowledge, because it is of your soul, allows you to grow in consciousness.
There are different levels of consciousness among each form of life. These levels of 15 -21 are of human consciousness. These are the stages of the consciousness development being that the original consciousness was lost in transition from energy to physical. The consciousness has to go through these levels of development to get back to its original nature. The soul choosing to incarnate will come into the physical life at a level 15, progress through as long as the physical wishes to remain. The level it stops at would be the level it will return at. So the levels move very slowly. One level upward could be equivalent to 10 years of your time. There is much to be developed from this growth of consciousness, it takes time. If a soul chooses a shorter life, it also has the choice to choose to come back and start at level 15 again. If that life did not fulfill its needs it will choose that path again. The spirit of the other aspects of yourself contain information of the whole. This knowledge, because it is of your soul, allows you to grow in consciousness.
The level of consciousness takes many of your earth lifetimes to reach the highest you would desire in the earth plane. When you have reached your highest level of consciousness, then you do have a choice of continuing on and changing your consciousness form or reincarnating. If the soul has already completed its cycle and has reached 21, and for some reason chooses to reincarnate in human form, that soul again would begin at level 15, but because of the advancement of the soul could go from 15 to 21 in one lifetime if it desires.
Amon, channeled August 1987
Change is but a whisper of the wind in our world but in the physical world the slightest change in directions alters many of the energies involved, throwing off and also attracting new and old. Without this change the old would grow dusty and nothing would be accomplished for the spirit. It is this change that helps the spirit grow and eliminate old patterns of the past, present and future. Once the old is lost the new is allowed to enter with less resistance and the spirit is able to see a broader and clearer picture of the overall advancement. Once the spirit sees this advancement the change is welcomed as opposed to being held off.
All beings are divine love encompassed among a great mass of energy flowing throughout every living thing.

Letter written in 1855 by Chief Sealth of the Duwamish Tribe of the State of Washington. Sent to President Franklin Pierce concerning the proposed purchase of the tribe's land.
The Great Chief in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy out our land. The Great chief also sends us words of friendship and good will. This is kind of him since we know he has little need of our friendship in return. But we will consider your offer, for we know if we do not so, the white man may come with guns and take our land. What Chief Sealth says, the Great Chief in Washington can count on as truly as our white brothers can count on the return of the seasons. My words are like the stars-they do not set.
How can you buy or sell the sky - the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. Yet we do not own the freshness of the air or the sparkle of the water. How can you buy them from us? We will decide in our time. Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people.
We know that the white man does not understand our ways. One portion of the land is the same to him as the next, for he is a stranger who comes in the night and takes from the land whatever he needs. The earth is not his brother, but his enemy, and when he has conquered it, he moves on. He leaves, his father's graves and his children's birthright is forgotten. The sight of your cities pains the eyes of the redman. But perhaps it is because the redman is a savage and does not understand......
There is no quiet place in the white man's cries. No place to hear the leaves of spring or the rustle of insect's wings. But perhaps because I am a savage and do not understand--the clatter only seems to insult the ears. And what is there to life if a man cannot hear the lovely cry of a whippoorwill or the arguments of the frogs around a pond at night? The Indian prefers the soft sound of the wind darting over the face of the pond, and the smell of the wind itself cleansed by a mid-day rain, or scented with a pinon pine. The air is precious to the Redman. For all things share the same breath---the beasts, the trees, the man. The white man does not seem to notice the air he breathes. Like a man dying for many days, he is numb to the stench.
If I decide to accept, I will make one condition. The white man must treat the beasts of this land as his brothers. I am a savage and I do not understand any other way. I have seen a thousand rotting buffaloes on the prairies left by the white man who shot them from a passing train. I am a savage and I do not understand how the smoking iron horse can be more important than the buffalo that we kill only to stay alive. What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beast also happens to man. All are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth.
Our children have seen their fathers humbled in defeat. Our warriors have felt shame. And after defeat, they turn their days in idleness and contaminate their bodies with sweet food and strong drink. It matters little where we pass the rest of our days--they are not many. A few more hours, a few more winters, and none of the children of the great tribes that once lived on this earth, or that roamed in small bands in the woods, will be left to mourn the graves of a people once as powerful and hopeful as yours.
One thing we know which the white man may one day discover. Our God is the same God. You may think now that you own him as you wish to own our land. But you cannot. He is the Body of man. And his compassion is equal for the redman and the white. This earth is precious to him. And to harm the earth is to heap contempt on its creator. The whites, too, shall pass--perpaps sooner than other tribes. Continue to contaminate your bed, and you will one night suffocate in your own waste. When the buffalo are all slaughtered, the wild horses all tamed, the secret corners of the forest heavy with the scent of many men, and the view of the ripe hills blotted by talking wires, where is the thicket? Gone. Where is the eagle? Gone. And what is it to say goodby to the swift and the hunt, the end of the living and beginning of survival.
We might understand if we knew what it was that the white man dreams, what hopes he describes to his children on long winter nights, what visions he burns into their minds, so they will wish for tomorrow. But we are savages. The white man's dreams are hidden from us. And because they are hidden, we will go our own way. If we agree; it will be to secure your reservation you have promised. There perhaps we may live out our brief days as we wish. When the last redman has vanished from the earth, and the memory is only the shadow of a cloud moving across the prairie, these shores and forest will still hold the spirits of my people, for they love this earth as the newborn loves it's mother's heartbeat. If we sell you our land, love it as we've loved it. Care for it, as we've cared for it. Hold in your mind the memory of the land, as it is when you take it. And with all your strength, with all your might, and with all your heart--preserve it for your children, and love it as God loves us all. One thing we know--our God is the same. This earth is precious to him. Even the white man cannot be exempt from the common destiny.
The True PeaceThe first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real peace, and the others are but reflections of this.
The second peace is that which is made between two individuals,The True PeaceThe first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Taka (the Great Spirit), and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.

and the third is that which is made between two nations.
