SJ – I’m new to blogging but let me just say that I will do my best to faithfully enter words on my blog as they come to mind. My intention is to share wisdom garnered from my life, from my own soul memories and from my muse whom I have named Joshua. Are we ready?
Joshua – Today we will talk about salvation and what it takes for your soul to reach God.
SJ – Remind me again of who “we” is, please.
Joshua – We are the positive spiritual angels and guides who are assigned to each and every one of you. Some of us have lived before on your planet and some have never walked the earth.
SJ – Since you’re in the spirit world can you answer this for me: Who or what is God?
Joshua – I don’t know. He just is. He is light. He is energy. He is massive. You are all a part of him and your souls have memories of him. You were once a part of that energy but when the material world formed you wanted to explore the earth. To fully enjoy its fruits and sensations you had to become a solid form. However, you were not released into form to struggle alone.
SJ – Why were we allowed to release into form?
Joshua – You have always had free-will and that will never change. You released yourselves into the material world. You enjoy it but now you are not sure how to get back to God.
SJ – So are we stuck here permanently?
Joshua – Jesus, the Buddha and others came here to show you the way. The way of course is love but you have to learn how to love again, unconditionally.
SJ – Sounds like we are going to have to work really hard for our salvation?
Joshua – Your salvation is simply that you exist. You exist in God’s image, in every possible way imaginable.
SJ – I was taught that I am sinful and born in shame?
Joshua – How could you be created in God’s image and be sinful and shameful? You came to the planet expecting to receive and give love the way it was received and given where you came from.
SJ – Talk about a rude awakening!
Joshua – You learned fear and self-hatred, didn’t you? Your salvation will come when you learn to love yourself. Love yourself as God’s most precious gift to mankind and conduct yourself as such. You are each a stepping stone for creating a better life on the planet. You are also each a stepping stone for consciousness development and for spiritual growth.
Remember you are all just energy taking on form. Your DNA is the creation of energy, energy that can transmit to other dimensions and vice versa.
SJ – Does that mean we could make our bodies dematerialize, like in Star Trek movies “beam me up Scottie”?
Joshua – Yes. Aren’t you excited about that?
SJ – Forgive me if I sound skeptical. I’m pretty sure I can’t do that.
Joshua – The human cell develops the qualities for physical survival by evolution – trial and error because they have memory. The human cells also know how to create enough positive energy to return the soul to its source.
SJ – So what’s stopping us from returning to our “source”?
Joshua – Did I mention you like it here, usually, or rather your ego likes it here. There are pleasures that you can only get by having a body. It’s your soul that wants to stay with the source. And so there is this never ending struggle between the soul, mind and body.
SJ – Are we talking about good and evil here?
Joshua – We are talking about negative and positive energy. Positive energy is light, where your souls want to stay. But your minds and bodies insist on weighing yourselves and the planet with negative energy. Negative energy created by the mind’s ego. Negative energy created because of the body’s need for survival and its fear that there are not enough resources to go around. And, of course, the ego created greed but that’s another topic.
SJ – And the soul only gets one shot at convincing the body to be a good little person so that it can go and stay in heaven?
Joshua – I was wondering when you were going to work that question in the conversation. You want to know about reincarnation don’t you?
SJ – How well you know me. I guess you want to go back to talking about energy.
Joshua – You and your God need the positive energy. The creation of positive energy feeds into the universe and helps it to expand.
SJ – One of the Big Bang theories, am I right?
Joshua – Based on the message we hear from God, the expansion theory is the correct one.
SJ – And what is that message from God?
Joshua – The message from God is: I am your creator; from my energy comes your energy. If my energy grows dim it is of your making. If you extinguish this light there will not be another for eons to come. Follow me to the bright light and you shall know bliss.
SJ – How can we mere mortals extinguish the light?
Joshua – You could extinguish it by increasing negative energy. Unfortunately you have a vested interest in keeping the balance between negative and positive going.
SJ – Why?
Joshua – If the scale tips too far in the positive (or negative) the material world will cease to exist. Your soul’s expectation and hope is that it will exist eternally in the light of the Positive Energy force.
SJ – But those of us who enjoy all the pleasures on earth like food and sex; we want to keep it going?
Joshua – Yes you do, until the going gets tough.
SJ – You mean like war and famine. That’s when we really get “religion”.
Joshua – You said it, I didn’t. Your salvation will come when you realize that your ego is not the reason for your existence, it is for “the energy source” that you exist. You are your soul, not your body. It is your soul that matters here. And it is your soul that removes you from the planet whether you want to go or not.
SJ – You mean when my soul has had enough it’s “out-of-here” and my body goes to dust?
Joshua – Exactly, when your soul is ready to check-out, no amount of medicine or precaution is going to keep you here.
SJ – So the salvation we’re looking for will actually mean the end of physical time as we know it? We’re to expect an explosion of Positive Energy so powerful the Universe will expand because that is what the source wants?
Joshua – you’re making this sound like a bad thing. Would you rather sink into the black hole of negative energy?
SJ – Either way we will cease to exist?
Joshua – You will cease to exist in physical form but you are not your body, you are your soul. And your soul knows the bliss that awaits all of you; a bliss that your mind and ego have forced you to forget. However, every cell in your body remembers it which is why you repeatedly turn to religious leaders for help, or to addictions.
SJ – Like drugs, alcohol, food, sex etc.
Joshua – Yes, the list is long. Your body is trying to find the bliss its soul once knew and that its cells remember. However, as you know, bliss in the physical world is a fleeting thing. And sometimes the means to that end can be very destructive.
SJ – That should make the soul happy since its trying to go home.
Joshua – Not really. All of these addictions and the bad behaviors that come with them only create more negative energy; negative energy the soul must make amends for.
SJ – The next life on earth?
Joshua – Back to that are we. Maybe next time we’ll talk about reincarnation, or maybe not.
SJ – You can be sure I’ll be back to hear what you have to say. Love you Joshua.
Joshua – Love you too Soundest Jewel. And remember:
You are all just energy taking on form.
