There is something that is on your mind, that you want to write about, Roy, it is simplicity. You are also contemplating the usefulness of what you are doing.
So, as I understand it, you are wondering if it serves anyone to bring them into enlightenment. Considering that mankind is in the physical world intentionally and by choice and is experiencing that which he freely chooses. You wonder why, you would offer him enlightenment, that would set him free from this world. It is your thought that you may be committing spiritual malpractice.
Roy, that would be impossible. What you are doing has purpose. In order for you to exist in the physical world and experience that which you have gone there for, you must forget. You must forget that it is "I" that wishes to experience the physical world through you and your body. You must also forget that you are me and that the ego doesnít really exist and is part of the illusion.
Forgetfulness is a powerful drug. It is so powerful in fact that you will deny the truth over and over as it is presented to you. At some point in your physical life you will have completed what you wish to experience and you will either move on to another experience in this lifetime, or you may wish to return from where you came.
The drug of forgetfulness wears off slowly. There is often much confusion and apprehension. A bewilderment that sends the body into a search for the truth. The ego starts loosing control of the body and becomes fearful. Physicalness is a powerful addiction. Over time you have become attached to your world and things in it. Many of you repeat your birth several times, because of it. Roy, you are an angel, a helper, a guide for those that are beginning to awaken.
Awakening is an appropriate term. The sensation is much the same as from waking from a powerful dream or coma. Roy, you can not damage anyone that is awakening or in that process. Those that are still asleep will not hear or believe what you say. The one that is awakening, is searching for you. He is looking for answers. The student is ready, and you are there to help him/her. What you are offering is what they are booking for. "When the student is ready the teacher will come." The ones that are not seeking your council are the ones that are yet asleep and they do not want it. This is were you could be practicing spiritual malpractice, if that were possible. You must allow your students to seek you out. They will recognize your words and your words will trigger a response. Such as a homing instinct. These are the people that are ready to move to their next step in their evolution. The others will laugh at you and point their finger, they can not see the truth or wisdom of your words, simply because they are not ready.
Roy, do not be judgmental, everyone is at their appropriate level of understanding given their model of their world and the level of enlightenment they possess. Everyone, EVERYONE moves through these stages. Your students will be from all ages or age groups. Some souls are finished early while others wait to later on in their life period. You do not have to recognize them, they will know you, by your words. It is you and others like you that have agreed to help those that seek awareness, and awakening. Let your thoughts be known, but do not worry that anyone is listening, they are. What you are doing in truth, is gathering these other parts of yourself into an awareness of the whole and offering them a choice. Choice, freedom and unconditional love. The many will join with the one again, and then again separate. Do not judge the non-believers, their non-belief is appropriate, it is the only way that the system can work. Bless them, for in their state of non-belief they bring you a gift, a special gift of your own awareness. It may be several more lifetimes before they are ready. And there will be guides for them as well. Your time is now!
As for making the world a better place to live, Roy, that is a thought process, your thoughts, and thoughts become manifest in physical form in your reality, with the intensity of the thought that you generate. There are many worlds existing at the same time. Choose the one you want. The others will not be effected by it. Those that are in your world will be in it by choice, in harmony with your thoughts, because it is your thoughts and theirs that is creating it.
Roy, religion is not truth. Religion is a metaphorical, abstract glimpse of creation. Religion is manís attempt to explain his spirituality. This is mankindís overall truth in the physical world, as created by him. It was created by man and is as real as he believes. Some religions are more closed than others, while others have evolved with man. At best, it is an immature process that guides him through his early experience of the physical world. It is immature and limited in itís scope for many, but does allow mankind an opportunity to start expressing himself in spiritual ways.
Religion and itís symbols are manís creation. They are beginning steps into enlightenment, they are not a requirement to be spiritual or enlightened. You are spiritual, naturally. Religion seeks to convert, while spirituality is freedom. Converting, is not what I want you to do, Roy. No one needs to be converted or saved. Give your hand to those that are already outstretched. There are "noneí" who are unworthy. There are only those that are asleep, and those that are in the process of awakening. You have my blessings, Roy, although you do not need themóyou never have. Hang up your shingle and wait for those that will come. Stay away from those that claim enlightenment only for the sake of argument. They are still asleep, they are not here to find their truth. Welcome all who are awakening and are seeking their truth, for they will listen, that's why they came.
