Truth 11

Back in my 20s someone once asked me; ‘do we live by fate, by chance, by choice’ I quickly answered ‘I believe we live by choice, that we choose our own destiny’. The next day the Spirits corrected me with this Truth:

Spirit explained that yes its true, we make our fate with the choices we commit to. However the past is a shadow we cannot shake, it shackles us, and dictates our present and our future. They explained they were talking about lives upon lives of choices that were made. Every choice must be paid in full. Everyone pays, everyone. Who we were makes who we will become. In this truth I want to show the negative side of that shadow. In the next truth I will share a positive position.

I had a visual of a King from the 17th Century whose greed was epic. Nothing else matter to him then hoarding his opulence while the people of the country suffered under poverty. Thousands upon thousands were starving and the King did nothing to quell their suffering. It wouldn’t last as the people turned on him. Then the visual shifted to show a child born in what is now Cambodia, in his pre teens a massive plague struck the area, yet he became the sole survivor, without any help, the young man slowly starved to death. Then another life, this time he was in the new country, excited to try his hand at the opportunity to make his own money, but at every turn he failed. He would become a beggar and would die of consumption alone in his early twenties. Then they showed a rich man who lived in present day, but he again hoarded the money he had, unwilling to share it with his relatives. He lost all of his money and found himself as a peddler on the streets. His mind was slowly escaping him, schizophrenia started to take over. The visual ended with Spirit showing the King sitting in a dark place with one candle left and then Spirit blew out the candle and their was darkness.

Spirit explained that Karma was never a punishment but a tool used to teach. They never acted in revenge, but used karma as a tool for teaching. It’s truly important to understand the vicious cycle here. One man caused the unnecessary pain and suffering of thousands, then he became the product of the pain he created.

“Everyone pays.. everyone has a shadow that hold their debts.. and those debts determine your next step.” Spirit said.

“It is an unfortunate reality that you are all bound to each other..  You are bound to your past.. it dictates who you are and where you are going next” Another Spirit said.

“You live in an endless school its best you learn from your mistake and move on. Be noble, be good because God knows your failings and waits.” The final Spirit said

    To be honest, this leaves me with more questions and frustration. I get the idea of karma, but the example of the Cambodian boy suffering because his past self was a greedy king–the child didn’t know about his past self’s crimes, how is it fair for him to suffer for something he doesn’t even remember?

    Does this mean people who are suffering have no hope of anything getting better? That they’re paying for sins they don’t even remember?

    I know people who are good in this life and have suffered disease and death… I supposed to accept that, if it’s karma, there’s no hope for their lives to get better? That they’ll spend the rest of this life suffering?

    I really don’t mean to sound hostile, though I’m sure I’m coming across that way. I just….I can’t understand it. I can’t understand a child starving to death for his past sins, and not even getting the chance to make up for them.

    The idea of karma does nothing to ease pain in this life, and if anything, it makes me feel hopeless.
    I’ve suffered hellish things, and seen horrible things happen to people I love. I prayed to god to help, and usually those prayers are ignored. Does this mean I sinned so badly in a past life that there’s no hope for happiness in this one?

    Again, I truly don’t mean to sound hostile. It just scares me.

      Its important to understand that its starts with a man, a King who has created an epic amount of suffering, so no the Spirits aren’t the cause. He became in many ways the suffering he created in the past, another way to think of it is we make the choices, the path taken, but the spiritual realm builds the roads.

      1. Sara Avatar

        I see what you’re saying, but the suffering of the boy, who has no way of knowing what his past self did…..I don’t know what to think about that.
        All I can see is a confused boy starving to death.

        Even though the former self was an evil king, the Cambodian boy he is now is still just a little boy in this life, suffering. He doesn’t remember his past life, and he’s starving to death now, alone and sad. I don’t know how to get past that.

        And it makes me worry that a lot of suffering that me and my loved ones go through now is for something done in a past life, and if that’s so, does that mean we’re doomed to misery in this life?

        1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

          No there is a key to unlock all of these shackles. It’s the one thing that every major religion teaches yet very few do, that’s a conversation for another day. I think you need to understand the gravity of his crimes. Thousands starved under his watch, I guess I would pose the question what should be the consequences for his crimes? What or how would you handle it? I find their description of karma far better than our current western beliefs, in their system they seem to give you opportunities to change your ways.

      2. Sara Avatar

        My answer to what should be the consequences for his crimes would be this: when that king died, he should have been made to experience the grief and pain he caused, with all his memories intact. In the afterlife he should have been made to feel the pain he caused, understand what he did was wrong, and then become repentant.

        The idea of turning him into a young boy, with no memory of those events, and punishing him then, instead of punishing the actual king in his afterlife, well, it just doesn’t make sense to me.

        Your message probably didn’t intend for this, but it almost sounds like the spirits are saying that people suffering today–from famine, or genocide, or whatever–deserve what they get, and that can’t be true.

        That would be like saying the victims of the Holocaust, or cancer victims, deserve it for some past crime, and I cannot accept that.

        Maybe I’m totally misunderstanding the message, but if you’re a good person in this life, shouldn’t that make a difference?

        1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

          With respect Sara I think you might be missing the point. The holocaust was an act committed by other people who had evil intent, just like the King committed his act of greed. Any notion that the Spiritual realm would participate in these horrid acts would go against what they stand for. With that said I have no doubt the Nazis have their own debt to pay.

        2. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

          Yes if your a good person that makes all the difference. This King was not a good person, at all. We will post next month examples of what happens to those who are good, maybe it will make more sense then. Also those suffering in genocide are acts of evil people and are not condoned by Spirit. Please separate the suffering caused by other people as something the Spirits would condone.

    2. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      Be patient there are more stories coming that explain it better, my issue with this message isn’t the horrible suffering the king went through in the following lives, but why was the soul of this a King allowed to create so much suffering to begin with.

      Sara, I have a special friend who’s a channel, she explained to me that all people will experience hardships, it’s how we learn & grow, but it’s how we handle those experiences that define us. My husband broke his neck, the exact same injury as Christopher Reeves, he should be dead, it took us 10 years & the advancement of medical technology before we could find a surgeon who could fix him, I had no idea if the surgery would paralyze him. After 2 years of recovery he’s finally returning to his old self, I haven’t seen that man in 12 years, it’s a miracle. We’re falling in love again, he laughs & smiles again, never give up, what I thought was a curse has turned into a blessing.

        Maybe my husband in his past lives gave in to the misery & gave up, but in this life he didn’t give up, he finally learned this lesson, but it took dropping him on his head to do it, but maybe in his future lives he’ll use this new knowledge to make his life a little easier.

      2. Sara Avatar

        I see what you’re saying, too. And I’m relieved that your husband got better and that things worked out for you guys.

        One of the reasons I’m struggling with this message is personal. My mother has MS, a severe form of it. She was diagnosed when I was a child. I grew up watching her fall to the ground; I witnessed her getting injured by these falls. By the time I was 12, she couldn’t walk or stand by herself.
        I saw her fear as she lost her mobility, and my family’s fears. Nothing worked–even with physical therapy, medicine, whatever…..everything that came out was too little too late.

        Mom was put in a nursing home when I was a teenager. Before that, we spoon-fed her, and I felt pure panic every time she choked. She moaned in pain all the time, her mind was mostly gone. I prayed to god to help her, and he didn’t. I used to be terrified to leave the house, because I feared it would catch on fire and she’d burn to death, alone and unable to escape.

        She’s spent the past decade in a nursing home, deteriorating over time. She can’t stand, walk, sit up by herself, or feed herself. Sometimes she knows us, other times she doesn’t remember who we are. Sometimes she’s happy, others she just sleeps there.

        My mother never got to see my graduation. She was too sick to be able to teach us anything about make-up or fashion, she can’t celebrate her wedding anniversaries or visit her family, she’s been cheated. She’s going to die, probably within the next few years. I live every day worrying about getting that phone call.

        And then I looked at today’s Truth, and it just set me off. My mother is a good person. In this life, she practically helped raise her younger siblings. She taught illiterate adults, she worked for a program to help disadvantaged children. She always stood up for human rights–she fought against racism and discrimination and prejudice whenever she saw it. As a kid, she often refused to eat so her siblings would have more.

        Am I supposed to believe my mother’s suffering is because of some sin in a past life? Am I supposed to accept that all the good deeds she’s done in her life don’t count and that she still has to suffer???

        Am I supposed to believe she deserved it, that god it letting all this bad stuff happen to her–and to our family–for some past sins none of us even remembers?

        My Mom is a good person now. She’s been a good person all her life, and that ought to count for something. It ought to count for something in this life, otherwise what’s the point of anything? Doesn’t god care about the pain we feel in this life, regardless of what our past selves did?

        Why did my mother have to get MS? Why did God hate us so much? Why didn’t he listen to the nine-year-old girl I once was when I begged him to save my Mom?? Whatever ‘crimes’ any of our past selves did–why are WE being punished instead of the past jerks that might have done it?

        I’m sorry to be ranting like this, but I can’t accept that my mother has lived in hell for something she doesn’t even know about, or that God didn’t take all her good deeds and her kind heart into account when he let bad things happen. Why? Why did this have to happen to her? WHY?

        Eric, I really like your blog and what you’re doing. But how the hell can I live my life knowing my mother’s life has been ruined, and then hear other people imply she might have deserved it? I can’t understand it, I just can’t…….

        1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

          Sara just for you give me a few days to post what happens to good people, we will skip the monthly wait, let me show you what they are rewarded with, I do not feel at all this message is about her, this is a message about evil people and an understanding of what happens to them for their crimes. But in NO way would I equate this message with your mother.

      3. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

        That’s a beautiful message.

      4. Sara Avatar

        Thanks Eric,
        I’m sorry for going off like that….I’ve calmed down a lot now, so hopefully I can explain this a little better.

        I didn’t grow up religious, which sounds weird considering all the stuff I was talking about. But I couldn’t help hearing about him on TV or in books. And from a young age I did wonder why god let my Mom, a good person, get MS.

        As a child I prayed for her to be healed, but she never was. She’s still in a nursing home, and has been for almost half my life. And my family still struggles with it a lot.

        Part of me believes there is a loving higher power, whatever it is. But other times, when I think of my mom getting so sick, after she’d done so much for others in her life….and when I think of all the suffering, like the Holocaust or whatever, I wonder why it’s allowed to happen. Like, what kind of god would let it?

        And then in today’s post, when you were talking about karma….I guess I jumped to conclusions and thought you were saying that’s the case for all bad events–that all sorrow was karma–and that ticked me off.
        I was relieved to read another of your comments that assured me otherwise, so I’m sorry for leaping to conclusions.

        I guess it comes down to the fact that for me, even with talk of free-will and karma and stuff, I often still feel like the scared little girl I once was, the one who prayed, but only saw things get worse for her mom.

        In a lot of ways, I still blame god, or whatever higher power, for not healing Mom. I feel like he/she/they left my mom and me and my family alone to suffer, and it hurts. That’s something I’ll have to work through somehow.

        Anyway, I apologize for going off on everyone like that, and I was relieved that some of your later comments cleared up some of what I’d mistakenly assumed was the case.

        1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

          There is absolutely nothing to apologize for. I am the one that should be apologizing, in hindsight I should have explained all sides of this Truth instead of breaking it into pieces.

      My heart reaches out and my spiritual arms surround you and your family with one great big hug ..And a well done ..
      As a child it would have been just devistating
      for God not to hear you .
      but God did and your Mom I agree with Pete Medium came into this life as a warm caring generous hearted server of spirit .
      She loved you all so much she gave herself to helping you all in growth of spirit and Compassion .
      which I know you to be ..I read your posts and its evident .
      I dont believe its bad Karma or payment for past life sin ..
      Oh not at all seems she agreed to give herself in this life as she has for all your advancement ..she is an old soul that is full of love and understanding ..she elected out of love to do this and god lets us have that choice ..
      She did nothing wrong in a past life .
      She is sooo special and i admire her souls stregnth and courage .
      I hope you can feel my hug dear one its genuine ..
      love yo you and yours especially your devine Mom .

        Sara, I would’ve had no idea of the kind of suffering you’ve experienced, you always offer messages of support to others, you must get your strength and compassion from your Mother, she sounds like an incredible person.

        Thank you everyone. I appreciate your kind words. My mom is a wonderful person, and it’s been hard to see her lose so much from her life. I’ll probably struggle with that issue for a long time.

        But I do try to follow her example and be compassionate and understanding. All her siblings say she was always wise beyond her years, so maybe the ‘old soul’ thing has merit.

    Thank you Eric. I think that was a beautiful description. If more people believed in reincarnation and karma , they might think twice about their actions. For karma is ; for every action there is a reaction. Be it good or bad. I read a lot of Edgar Cayce when I was young so have believed this most of my life , and felt as you said ,earth is a school.

    I don’t consider myself religious, and as a result, I don’t follow any specific religion. That said, I do consider myself very spiritual, and have been on a continual search to find something that just made sense and spoke to me.

    I recently have been reading a number of resources related to Karma, Buddhism, past lives, etc, and it’s the first time that I really felt like I was on the right path to something real. It’s still very new and I have yet to begin following it’s practices as I’m still researching what it is all about. But with today’s Truth 11…it of course really struck a cord with me. In Truth 11 Spirit spoke about Karma and past lives and the perpetual school that we live in…always trying to learn from our past mistakes. I’m just wondering if anyone knows of any additional resources (books, online sources, etc…) that I can use to learn more about this. I want to stay on the right path, and I don’t want to waste my time with resources that aren’t going to provide me with what I’m looking for. So if anyone know of any resources out there that reinforce what is being talked about by Spirit in Truth 11, it would be really great if you could post them here.

    Much appreciated everyone! 🙂

      This ancient text mirrors a lot of what the Spirits say, I can’t say it all does, but its very close.

  5. Revvie Avatar

    The concept of a limited free will. “Free will exists but such is the limit of a man’s capabilities that he is powerless against the written plot of the world.”
    An Eastern depiction of the concept of karma, which is based on older ones from civilizations long before ours (instead of the simple Heaven and Hell thing of the Middle East-based religions, which are based from the short-term needs for public order.)

    I know the spirits are trying to teach us something, but seriously this kind of message only works to demoralize (if not aggravate) we poor humans who know nothing of this past life of ours, but have to life its consequence out.
    I hope they could… demonstrate more tact in their efforts next time.

      no it’s not as you see it! before a soul comes back for another circle of life has all the knowledge of all the lives she lived in other timelines and there its the will, the decision,of choosing and living another circle of life with all the hardships expected and accepted, like an opportunity to try and change everything!
      Everyone has this opportunity but not any “promise” of success! Its up on us to make it or not!
      Every time you fail better is a win and a step forward!
      Have faith in your higher self, have faith in divinity, and try to remember that you have a chance to make it
      We are all small parts of a huge soul
      and everything we succeed benefits others too!

    Popi: good words.

    Eric, have you read any of Paul Selig’s books? His latest, “The Book of Truth”, like many other sources, speaks about karma as a learning tool, but also about how we can ‘elevate our vibration’ to align with our True Self so that we can remove all of our fears and then Know our lessons. (It doesn’t mean you don’t have to do the lessons, but that you understand their purpose.)
    The King and rich man hoarded because of some deep level of fear. If they could’ve confronted their fear, they would’ve known there was no reason to hoard.
    To quote Frank Herbert:
    “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

    1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      I love that line from FH, I remember reading it, Fear is the mind Killer, it’s so true. I would add that the sufferings the King experienced was meant to create a more compassionate giving person, one who could move past his hoarding ways.

      thank you Bob😊 No I haven’t read any of these books! I did read a lot of things though the last years looking for my “truth” among them it was a great help a blog from a guy who sawed up suddenly for about a year(2013) on the Greek internet as I am Greek, and then he disappeared,and the Hawian teachings from Mornah Simeona about forgiveness.
      Anyway I do believe that when you are ready for the “truth” then the truth is somehow revealed to you!
      Sometimes someone writes something on the net and it’s only the people who are meant to who read it 😊
      Well I hope you understand my point which is difficult to describe in English

      Looking forward to hear the Truth nothing but the real truth. Plain tired of too many theories in religious. I raised in catholic and married to Methodist clergy. Seen and experienced different churches but some of them make no sense based on theological beliefs…however without a doubt I sensed and experienced something powerful inside me beyond my comprehension. Have to follow my gut and 6th sense even little and no training as what tried to guide me. I’m excited to read Eric’s blog and it’s great honor for the Spirits willing to teach us something significant by communicated through Eric. The Spirits have are ancient for way long before us and maybe we too are ancient that we have been around numerous of times. We don’t know that but I know there is something going on out there and we came to earth with blank minds for a reason. Starting fresh and grow as what we learned from this planet. As our time passed we’d know everything and we’d do something different in our next life. So, I’m very eager to read another chapter in Truth that open our eyes and make us better “students” and useful to our planet(s).

    Hi Sara. I too was given a similar message as Eric’s, also in my early years. Just like Eric’s it was a generalisation, not a total locked in blue print for everyone. The question we need to ask ourselves is why we experience hardship, or have to witness the hardship of others. Life after life is a far bigger puzzle than the one we see here in front of us this life. Your mother isn’t necessarily having a hard time this time round because of a seriously bad life last time round. Some people are born with the intention of serving off world Karma. They were beautiful people last time round. Take Mother Theresa as an example. She could well choose to be the child in Cambodia.
    And she is not the only one willing to make such a sacrifice.
    Your mother, and others in your life that are suffering, are there for you….and all of us who have similar stories….to determine our beliefs in relation to God, or the Creator Force, or Atheism, or Agnosticism or whatever we currently hold as our Spiritual Value.
    What I’m reading of your comments, and I profusely apologise if I offend, is that you have been coming to terms with the God that you were taught, or that you believe in.
    I certainly had my Road to Damascus event….and I still have the horse hoves embedded in my derrière even now.

    Eric has bitten off quite a chunk in this Truth, and I seriously honour him for it.
    Our job now is to see how our belief and faith etc stack up against this message from his Spirit Team.
    Just as an example, imagine that little Cambodian boy’s life this time round. He would see ‘God’ in so many ways he would never have allowed himself to see when he was a King.
    The kindness of others, the encouragement to help others, the caring for others against caring for himself.
    As Eric said we are here to learn. I have no doubt that in my life, I was a ‘King’ and then I was a pauper. As a pauper I would probably have leaned towards thieving and selfishness, having bought over that knowledge. But even in that life, I would have displayed true kindness.
    Just my little input on the matter, hope it is of some help.

    We all fall short of the glory of God. It is appointed once for a man to die.

    I believe once we die we can go “upstairs” to await the good we have sown along with forgiveness we have given & received. Or we can go “downstairs” to await the misery we have sown along with the unforgiveness we harbor.

    Believe what you want.

      Bible historians all confirm that Mark was the first of the Gospels and that Matthew came later and in traditional Jewish style, embellished that which came before.
      So I’ll quote what is considered the original: Mark 8:27-38 New International Version (NIV)

      “Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”
      They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”
      “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
      Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”
      Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.”

      Was this Jesus being referred to past lives, as in reincarnation? Why did only Peter’s reply get mentioned? What was the opinion of the other Apostles?
      Did Jesus actually warn them NOT to mention the links to his past lives, knowing is was prohibited in Jewish law?

      1. BoB Avatar

        One possible answer to your quote could be this: a group of humans (all male?) decided which books–and which parts of those books–would become the Bible.
        And lest we forget, churches are businesses, too, competing for customers/clients/$$$. 🙂

    2. petemedium Avatar

      Also it would have helped his cause had he given a link to which particular Bible quote he was using.
      If he is referring to Hebrew 9:27, then he is definitely taking it out of context.

  12. Holaca Avatar

    If anyone is interested there is a very short book “the game of life and how to play it” by Florence Scovel Shinn which I believe helps to link the law of attraction and karma minefield. We have to remember our spirit is not confined to a single human existence so we do have past knowledge to build and learn from.

    1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      Just to add Holaca, I would also recommend the teachings of the Buddha to help remember who you are. In my youth I committed myself to the path of enlightenment which lead me to what I do now.

    This posting has stirred a lot of thoughts in me, and I have several random comments which are not connected to each other but resonate with some of these themes. Thank you Eric for sharing this. I get it a lot better than I did ten years ago – this is my tenth anniversary of hitting bottom and slowly turning things around, and I used to be exactly where the more sceptical or confused people are. I still have lapses! I send love to Sara, whose reaction I totally understand as so much of my own life has been about severe hardship and cruelty and illness and apparently random devastations.

    There’s a common misunderstanding about Buddhism. The first truth of Buddhism is this: crap happens! Human life will always involve bad health, bad weather events, loss, and all the awful uncontrollable stuff from other people’s actions (as well as our own mistakes). Being a *good* person does not mean bad stuff will not happen. What shifts suffering is how you respond to what happens. I’m not trying to be glib here, because that’s really challenging, and that’s what spiritual practice works on. Expectations and attachments to how life *should* and *shouldn’t* be is where we can really torture ourselves. The only constant in life is impermanence.

    Even when we make positive changes and start building a better set of future probabilities, the old script we wrote is still playing out and we still have to deal with what comes because of former choices. It’s less about punishments than lessons. Even as I started typing this, an interviewee on a talk said ‘Life isn’t win or lose, but win or learn’ which was a nice synchronicity. Illness can teach us not only about helping and caring for others, but learning to accept love, care and interdependence. This latter is something many have difficulty with (medical staff can make the worst patients!). Vulnerability and surrendering to what is can lead to grace and an acceptance that we can’t control things beyond ourselves, while still being an indivisible part of it.

    Reading Eric’s post reminded me of a homeless man who made the news for the best and then the worst reasons. I believe it shows clearly how, even when a person is in the direst of straits, we still have options about how to respond. A homeless man in Manchester city centre found himself the hero of the hour after the Manchester bombing (the Ariana Grande concert). He was in the vicinity and helped victims in their hour of need, despite his own dreadful situation. He received much media attention, admiration and offers of help himself. However, it transpired that he also took the opportunity to rob the victims he was ‘helping’. He has been jailed, and is now seen as a disgrace. Even at the lowest level of material life we can still make choices.

    Read Viktor Frankl for a thought-provoking exploration of how our mindset can affect us even in the darkest circumstances. Read the Tao de Ching which represents life as like a flow of water finding the best way round obstacles. Much easier said than done of course.

    There’s something environmentalists say which I think is about karma as much as plastic: people talk about throwing things away: but there is no ‘away’. It’s going to come back at us in some form.

    Learning happens in cyclic spirals. When we recognise the lesson we don’t necessarily hit the jackpot, but it may become easier on the next go-round.

    When we learn to connect with source, and stay in tune with our inner guidance system (which many people confuse with their ego, making for the counterproductive phenomenon of ‘do-gooders’) we can then sense what our role is in it all, detach from our clinging and repelling and resistance, and appreciate the interconnected flow of everything, while being responsible in the best way for our little share of the load, right now.

    I’m sorry for the sermon, but all this is what I’ve had to learn the hard way. I know that there will be many who don’t get it, but when you do manage to see it, it does lead to a peace I never thought was possible.

    Hi Sara…I hope you can find peace, understanding and healing from some of the messages here for you. I read a book “Journey of Souls” by Dr. Michael Newton that you may find interesting. As a past life regression hypnotherapist his patients revealed much about our spiritual life between lives. Apparently, we choose the life we will have on earth based on what we feel we need to learn. As “rhona2” so eloquently stated, some older souls choose to come back to earth as teachers to help others with their spiritual advancement. If that is the case with your Mom (and it sounds like it very well could be based on your description of the kind of person she is), what a beautiful, selfless gift she has given all of you. I know how hard it is to watch those we love suffer and you’ve endured it for many years…I hope one day you will be able to embrace it as her souls gift to you Prayers for peace in your heart Xoxo

    All of us who have manifested in physical form are very, very brave and we don’t even realize it. We are here to realize our true self even if it takes us lifetimes. We come here to remember we are part of the Divine, not separate. We are more powerful than we realize. We have a lot of support from the other side to help us get through all of the trials we suffer. I try to tell my guides and Spirit thank you as often as I can.

    Is there a time that we stop coming “back to school” as spirit said? A time that we learn and stop with Karma…..just curious.

    Eric, thank you for starting this intriguing & thought provoking conversation. I have a question that you may not be able to answer unless it’s come up in one of your previous readings and spirit revealed further details re karma. As imperfect as I am, I’m fairly sure I’ve lived a fundamentally good life. It’s probably impossible to know the true definition of a good life due to numerous variables that are taken into account after we pass. Sometimes I feel a little tortured over what is expected of me. Do we keep accumulating bad karma even if in an overall way our life has been compassionate? One particular issue that plagues me is over a close relative who I have tried to help. This person is a drug addict who routinely steals, gets caught, and winds up in prison. Even though he’s manipulative I understand in a deep way that this is probably his karma and that due to his life experience he probably doesn’t know better. It’s possible he does know better but doesn’t care, but I get that it’s not up to me to judge him. Recently, I couldn’t stand the harassment & begging for money and abuse when I said no, so I cut ties with him. I’m not a cheapskate but I don’t believe in enabling bad behavior either. It’s so frustrating to be unsure of the best way to respond in challenging situations such as the one I described. Do you have any idea how much we owe our fellow souls or if that would be held against me if I made a mistake by not continuing to communicate or help him financially?

    There are so many posts here that I relate to in a deep way. BeachHut, you expressed yourself in a far better way than I could and your experience of life on this planet are similar to mine. Like you, I sometimes struggle with acceptance, especially when it’s acceptance of the unacceptable, but my life has gotten so much better as I make the effort to trust in the powers that exist in an unseen realm & that they are more than happy to step in and help. A small example, Id like to share happened a couple of years ago, my tire flattened and for some bizarre reason I thanked God. Definitely not the norm for me so it surprised me. Then, without even calling for help, someone out of the blue helped me very quickly.

    Sara, I can only add that your mom must be an evolved soul who chose to help others develop their compassion, which you have clearly accomplished. My best friend sounds very much like your mom. She grew up in an abusive family though, and would often get between her father and whoever his anger was directed towards. She wound up with several bruises, but amazingly, she never felt any pain. Maybe your mom has been protected from the pain you imagine she has due to the sacrifice she’s made. I hate injustice too and wish I understood why this world was ever conceived of. Some people believe that our souls are creative forces. It would be beyond wonderful if our collective creative forces plan a world after our souls leave here where we can learn the same lessons without the brutality that exists now.

      Hi Panda it sounds like you are making a wise decision. There is a big difference in helping people and enabling them. It’s important to understand this one post only covers the despicable people of our world, in the coming Truths we will discuss the Karma of good natured people and the unfortunate circumstances of suffering.

      1. Emerald Avatar

        Thanks Eric, for responding to Panda. I completely resonate with her story, as I am dealing with a friend who is on a self destructive path and unwilling to get professional help. I have tried to be there for him, but he has started to become threatening to me and I have now pulled away completely. I continue to think of him and hold the vision of him getting the help he needs to make his life better. Thank you for talking about helping versus enabling. It has helped me feel like I can continue to support him through my intentions and prayers and yet, not enable his behavior.

    2. BeachHut Avatar

      Thank you for your kind words, Panda. I didn’t realise my post would come out so long! The situation with your relative sounds very difficult and is a very common dilemma. I don’t think you should feel guilty as you have done what you could with good conscience, and it’s important to set boundaries for yourself as it’s so easy to get sucked into a repeating nightmare.

      Karma reflects intention, I believe, and you sound deeply thoughtful and self-aware about wanting to do the right thing. I don’t believe you should worry too much about whether you’re earning ‘good’ or ‘bad’ karma. Sometimes tough love is the right thing to do. Addicts are so good at manipulating and nurturing others’ guilt and doubt, and pulling them out of their integrity.

      The nature of addiction is that only the addict can inwardly decide to change, and before that happens there’s little anyone can do to help. No-one else can make that happen or influence them if the initial efforts to help have no impact on their behaviour (unless it’s a full blown intervention which I don’t know too much about). If you have helped with a true heart and they have continued to behave in the same manner then the responsibility is theirs and there’s nothing wrong with drawing a line in the sand.

      I don’t know if you have tried this, but there are groups in real life and online for those who are affected by another person’s addiction, which may be worth doing a search for. Even if you don’t join in, just reading the discussions on their forums etc may help you find clarity. A lot of people have been through the same scenario, with the same turmoil of mixed feelings. Good luck with it. You sound like a good loving soul and in no way is that the seedbed of bad karma.

        BeachHut, thank you, your message was so comforting to me! I can’t begin to convey how much help your insightful post gave me. Yes, I’m fairly sure I know which programs you’re referring to, and I would benefit from going to meetings again & finding more literature on the nature of addicts and how to free yourself from guilt. I love sites like these bc I have an intuitive feeling they help other readers who aren’t commenting as well. XXX

      2. Emerald Avatar

        Panda (and BeachHut), I just posted that exact thing (how your story resonated with me). Then, I scrolled down and saw that you posted saying that others could benefit from the discussion. I too feel much relief after reading these posts, I have been feeling conflicted for awhile and this has made me feel much more secure that pulling away was the right thing to do.

      3. Panda Avatar

        Your post is so appreciated Emerald! I’m glad you made the decision to pull away since you were being threatened. Sounds unsafe & frightening! I actually used a P.O. Box so my addicted relative wouldn’t know my home address. I really understand how difficult that decision is and the doubt that surrounds it after it’s made.
        I love the aka you chose. Emerald is my favorite color. 😌

    Thanks so much for clarifying Eric. I felt concerned that my question might be a burden for you to answer, since I understand the complexity of this life and know that one answer doesn’t fit all. I just decided to throw out that example bc I’m sure others struggle with the same issue and don’t want any bad karma added on to their current life. I do grasp your answer. I’ve been happy to help others when I can who are willing to help themselves, but resent the feeling of being taken advantage of. I guess we can only do our best here and pray for help to make the best decisions or best solutions for our individual challenges. The king in your story reminds me of the greed in our country that’s becoming the norm among many of our wealthy citizens and some politicians. 💗

    Eric/SWC. This just happened recently. Feds seize/shut down backpage, and craigslist takes personal ads section down once laws are changed holding them liable. Lots of child abuse happening on both of these sites for way too long. Given the disgusting and horrible things I’ve read about what backpage and craigslist are allowing which involves children of all ages, I definitely see this as our Father at work. Bringing the darkness into the light.

    Eric, have question for Spirit. Was the Sun used to be like the earth?

    My thought is there are volcanoes and it’s hot inside the core of the earth that slowly form turned to be like the Sun. Just a thought. Thanks! 🙂

    Sara, never apologize for feeling sorry for that Cambodian boy! Thousaunds and thousands of people have questioned this concept of “karma” and many have thought – it simply does not make sense. You almost read my thoughts when you wrote your remarks here. I think this type of victim blaming and karma perfectly fits recent “law of attraction” and world is a “school” concept. Eric, what if the world is not a school? What if your spirits are not entirely good beings? How you know that they are good? Probably you cannot really prove that and who could, probably you take whatever comes as something worthy. Do not believe all theories, even if they are presented by Spirits, this is what I say to myself.

    1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      Wow.. Because they have a moral compass that I can’t even meet the standard of. There on a whole different level of morality, that does not really mirror humanities on multiple fronts. I would counter with this. What evil have they committed in this 5 year runof predicting the future vs what good have we accomplished? Our ability to bring light where there is darkness in my opinion is self evident. Lives have been changed in the most positive ways due to their messages. So I pose the question if they have an deceitful intent when does it start?

    And Holocaust cannot be justified by past karma neither all the sick, raped and starved children, I think we are just left here to our own devices… Too many prayers are unanswered.

    Eric, thank you for reply, but Sometimes those entities gladly help “a little” and then introduce many wrong concepts under the cover of being light beings. Sorry for being negative, but I am sure the unseen world is much more complex and versatile than this world, and here in our world there are a lot of beings who are capable to wear even multiple masks… I am sure it is not all rosy and fluffy on the other side. It is very risky, but probably worth the risk if even somebody is helped…

    1. Lilly Avatar

      I just wanted to say that I am so sorry for a negative (probably) comment. I just have not faith that all (most) Spirits that are chanelled do not have their own agenda… Eric, please do not include my comments, they are probably too gloomy. It is better to believe even if you are not right at the end… Thanks for your work, you definitely try to help people. I have more faith in people like you than in Spirits whom I do not know and cannot know.

      1. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

        I don’t see it as negative, however I am not entirely understanding, for instance what agenda could they have? What purpose other than to help and warn people would they have into looking at these horrible world events?

    2. Eric Leigh-Pink Avatar

      After predicting Typhoon Haiyan we talked to 4 different families, after the prediction specific people contacted us to see if they needed to leave the area. In all cases the answer from Spirit was yes. We helped them. Now one could make the argument that helping 7 families when over 6000 died is “a little” but I don’t think the families would see it that way. Their appreciation was overwhelming. But your right if we equated just to percentage. However that’s the point of making these predictions. Fast forward to Hurricane Matthew and over 17 different emails came through asking if they need to leave. Our work and community is growing.

    Eric, with respect, I really think you should contemplate what Lilly has offered to you. If you learn to trust your own instincts, amazingly, you will start to find them very trustworthy. Many of these Truths given to you do not have the ring of benevolence and are not constructive…and I do trust my own heart when I say this. The agenda these spirits may have is to teach you to finally trust yourself & begin to focus on brighter possibilities, therefore beginning to bring more of them into your life.
    Your body has also tried to get you to turn away from your constant focus on deep fears & the worst imaginings. What if you were to try focusing on best possible future as an experiment for one month? Or focus on loving yourself for one month without any need to check outside you? You can always go back to what you were doing if you see no change. You are gifted, and your gifts could be turned in a direction to actually promote highest & best outcome…by nurturing it in yourself.

    From Seth Speaks, also channeled teachings…but of a more benevolent life-affirming kind:

    We know that desire attracts, but are we clear that fear does the same? Or do the results of fear seem accepted as foregone, something that happens that is outside of our control? This comment of Seth’s, while aimed at war and peace, seems to be our blueprint for safe personal living, too.

    “Before the beginning of any war, subconsciously each individual knows not only that a war will occur, but its precise outcome. Battles, like other physical acts, exist first in the mental realm. When this realm is peaceful, there are no wars.

    “All of your physical activities, from the political to the economic and to the most insignificant individual concerns, have their origin in mental existence, and their outcome is known.

    “To create a harmonious inner existence is a positive act with far-reaching effects, and not an act of isolation. To desire peace strongly is to help achieve it. To accept war helps prolong its physical existence.

    “These are not idle words nor are they meant symbolically…

    “That which is feared is feared so strongly and concentrated upon so intensely that it is attracted rather than repelled. The approach should not be fear of war but love of peace; not fear of poverty, but concentration upon the unlimited supplies available on your earth.

    “Desire attracts but fear also attracts. Severe fear is highly dangerous in this respect.”

    Hi! Eric! It’s so true what your spirit guide is teaching you and to forward us all the messages. Religion is just a form of identification and a set of rules and regulations to be followed. It is the spirituality in each and everyone of us that is teaching us to go through our experiences in life and learn valuable lessons from it. We are all connected to each other in terms of soul wise or energy wise. It’s the physical realm, our physical body that separates us. Our true form or self is the soul. Whatever good or bad experiences take it as your guru or guide and learn from it. We all are born in this physical realm for a purpose. Knowing this we should learn and teach ourselves and others who comes along in our lives. We are here to teach each other and not out wit each other. At other times spend our valuable times praying for humanity to progress forward spiritually and to be blessed with all round progress. Our soul and our soul life is our true form and ultimate goal and truth. We have to realise this through our daily practice of prayers and meditation.
