Q & A with Joseth
Good morning Joseth, good morning Roy.
Roy: Joseth what is it that people want the most?
Joseth: Roy, itís freedom.
Roy: Freedom to do what?
Joseth: Freedom to do or have anything that they desire.
R.: Why donít they have it?
J.: Roy, they do. All people, already have the freedom that they so desire . To do with or have anything they want. Mankind has always had that freedom. In fact, there is not one amongst you, that is not exercising that freedom right now.
R.: I am sure that there are many that would argue that point. There are people that are locked up at this moment, and those that are enslaved. Nations that keep their citizens restricted under powerful dictators. They are not free.
J.: But they are. All of them, every single one. At some level they all chose to be in the situation they are in right now. It could not be any other way. There are no victims or innocent bystanders. All of you create the circumstances of your life and put yourselves into the position for these things to be experienced. But there are very few of you that would accept this answer or the responsibility for your actions.
R.: But what of the person that was born into a poor family in a third world country. They had no choice, and yet they are suffering.
J.: Roy, you are assuming a lot here. First of all each individual is born into a family by choice. Before birth, each soul chooses the place and circumstances of birth, that will best allow him/her to create the circumstances of his life. You can not judge one for being born into poverty or slavery. You donít know what that particular soul wants to experience. Most all very rich people pity the average low income person, they canít imagine living the way they do. Some canít imagine why anyone would want to live in poverty and it behooves them to understand why they live that way. Many average persons sympathize with the nations of people who are starving and living under substandard conditions by our measurement. Yet in all of these groups, there are people who are living joyously. They do not want the riches of the well-to-do. Itís not fate that people are born into any situation. It is purposeful and chosen freely.
All souls will experience rich and poor, through many life times. What you see when you look upon these people is their bodies, you do not see the soul. Your judgments about them are not correct. In all cases the possibilities exist for all persons to change the way they live and their circumstances. It is free will that keeps people in the present circumstances that they find themselves.
R.: But slavery, or incarceration is hardly freedom. Why would anyone want to choose, that?
J.: Why indeed? Do not judge them, ask them why? In the case of a criminal, he chose all the events and circumstances leading up to his incarceration. He had a choice, in whether he was going to rob that bank, or kill that person. He always knew about the possibility of being caught, he simple took his chances. He made all the decisions and actions that would lead to his incarceration being implemented. At some level of consciousness he knew what he was doing, and chose it. Do not feel sorry for him, he got what he desired. He also has choices about whether he will remain in prison or not, or how long before he will make the change. He has the freedom to leave the cell in which he is imprisoned. There is no prison that can ever hold the soul, if it wishes to leave.
R.: So, if we all have freedom, then why do we want what we already have?
J.: Because you simply donít know it. You attach you existence, your life to your body. You believe the illusion of your existence. You simply are not aware of who you are and the power that you really have over your life and itís circumstances. You are being held back with paper chains that you have created yourself. You already have freedom and you are living it, exactly the way you have chosen.
All souls are connected and are in communication with each other. In the case of the good guy, bad guy scenario, the event is well orchestrated and the bad guy puts himself in a situation or circumstance that may lead to his capture. The captor, puts himself into the circumstance by choice that will coincide with the bad guys wish to be caught. Both are working together in harmony for an outcome that is favourable to both. Both at some level of understanding have agreed already on the outcome. Nothing is by chance, NOTHING IS BY CHANCE.
In a game of chess there are winners and losers, and stalemates, the results are decided before the game in complete agreement with each of the players. The correct moves are made to assure the results. What we desire is projected into the future, we then operate in the past to create the results that we both desire. If you consider that there is only one "thought process" that is playing the game, then the illusion of two players would have to work in harmony. One would have to agree to win, while the other agrees to lose, or both would agree on a stalemate. Because there is only one real player, he would lose, win and remain stalemated. He would experience all the possibilities.
R.: So we always have what we desire, and that is freedom, we simple choose the exercise it or not.
J.: Now you got it, that is exactly correct. You always have freedom, because you always act from freedom. FREEDOM IS WHO YOU ARE.
R.: Thank you Joseth for explaining this concept to me.
J.: Thank you Roy, for allowing me to bring it out, for all to recognize.
