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
