Universal Consciousness

Front cover CMYKMarch 11, 2012

 

SJ – We haven’t posted anything in quite a while.

Joshua – I know do you want to?

SJ – Yes

Joshua – Souls carry emotions with them when they ascend and these emotions are released into the Universal Consciousness.

SJ – Universal Consciousness?

Joshua – You’re not just ‘whistling Dixie’ down there you know. You’re accumulating knowledge, information and above all energy that you release into the world stream of consciousness when your body dies. So it is important that each one of you take care about how you leave this planet and what you take with you.

SJ – You mean like peaceful vs. violent deaths?

Joshua – Yes

SJ – But we really don’t have control over that.

Joshua – Men do purposefully and consciously go to war; murder one another; act stupidly such as driving drunk etc. People might think twice if they were taught that their actions matter.

SJ – I think you mean our actions matter to the Universe? We all know that there are consequences for our actions.

Joshua – Energy goes round and round; it comes back.

SJ – Are we talking about karma again?

Joshua – No karma as we have stated before is with oneself about oneself. I’m talking about the energy that is released from every living thing, human or beast. Even a plant releases negative energy when it is picked or stepped on.

SJ – But we have to eat plants. I mean I’m already not eating animals.

Joshua – The eastern religions have it right when they live a mindful life and eat mindfully.

SJ – We say grace before each meal.

Joshua –  And you are therefore mindful of the bounty given to you by mother earth and this puts out positive energy. It is not an accident that the idea to give thanks entered someone’s head and was adopted by so many people.

SJ – So we cancel the negative with the positive action of acknowledging the sacrifice of the plant or animal? I think that you are again talking about positive and negative energy?

Joshua – You are correct and I say this to you: Do not underestimate the importance of positive attitude.

Many of you are willing to try this because you think it will affect personal outcomes for each of you but I am here to tell you that while this is true, the most important effect is the energy that is poured into the Universal Consciousness. It is this Universal Consciousness that dictates how things will go and how they will eventually end for you humans. So begin teaching this now.

SJ – So when I’m cranky with friends or family members or the guy on the road in my way I’m not just hurting my own karma, I am releasing poison air, so to speak, into our universe?

Joshua  –  Correct. Humans are evolving at a rapid rate of speed technologically, socially and spiritually. And this is no accident. You are racing toward the ultimate purpose of your existence.

SJ – Which is?

Joshua – Your purpose is to bring positive energy to your Universal Consciousness so that it can merge with other conscious entities in other worlds.

SJ – Other entities?

Joshua – God wants to see something else beside the now unimaginative actions that have been going on for centuries with you humans.

SJ – You mean we’re boring God? Now that you mention it soap operas are going off the air so I guess even we are bored with all the relationship drama.  But these ‘goings on’ as you say are new to every soul that is born into this physical world.

Joshua – Seriously! (I like that you all say that now). May I remind you, you’ve been a believer in reincarnation for quite some time now.

SJ – Well yes.

Joshua – Then you know or should know that I am talking about your soul enduring your reckless actions lifetime after lifetime.

Even your physical minds are tired of all the drama. How many more wars can you have before you wipe yourselves off the planet; how many more failed marriages must you all endure?  You are all ready for new experiences.

SJ – You mean experiences with extra-terrestrials?

Joshua – Yes and, here’s the exciting part: You will be able to interact with souls who have passed on and souls who live in other realms.

The human race is ready for some new drama; new experiences. Thanks to television and the internet you see that people all over the world go through the same life dramas as you . But listen to me, girl, more amazing inventions are coming.

SJ – So you’re saying we are all jaded because we see the same dramas over and over all over the world?

Joshua – Yes and you see that the human experience is limited and is therefore becoming boring. How much sex can you watch in videos; how much violence do you want to see in movies? You are even resorting to seeing machines fighting each other because blood and guts no longer hold your interest.

SJ – So it’s time for us to explore new worlds, new adventures? And the energy we are putting out into the atmosphere or the universal consciousness will affect some sort of space or soul travel?

Joshua – Exactly! You all need to pour out positive energy. Do what all of your prophets have tried to convey to you: Love.

There is something wonderful waiting for all of you if you will just do that. For centuries you have believed in heaven. Now believe me when I tell you that “heaven” is within your reach but it does not look like what you expect.

SJ – In other words it’s not about morality; we’re not being “good” to reach heaven, we’re being good to manufacture positive energy?  And this energy is going to propel us to new and exciting adventures with the spirit world?

Joshua – Yes. The angels first came to earth because it seemed fun and thrilling but they stayed in physical form too long; they forgot how to get back to heaven.

So now you will all have to work backwards; back to the time when angels could easily travel from heaven and earth the way you go from New York to Paris.  You get the picture?

SJ – To just sum this up: We humans are bored with the drama of our lives because we’ve watched this drama unfold for us in movies; internet; world news etc. and there is nothing new under the sun. It’s always the same old story just different players.

For those of us who believe in reincarnation does this mean we don’t need to keep accumulating life experiences so that we can progress toward heaven?

Joshua – Right this method is old news now. That is why there are so many light workers banding together; again thanks to the internet. They will attempt to lead the rest of the human race into the future. A future that will take you onto adventures you cannot even dream about from your myopic human experience.

SJ – I see it now: I’m in love triangle with an extra-terrestrial and Attila the Hun. That should be exciting enough! Is there anything else I need to know?

Joshua – No I think you get the picture. So start putting out positive energy and continue your meditation which by the way is taking you further then even I thought you could go.

SJ – Well I’m still not doing it on my own; it’s thanks to some very gifted light workers that I’m able to open my heart more and more.

Joshua – Amen to that. . .love

Joshua

What’s Wrong With Me?

This is a re-posting of a blog I created sometime ago but I think is worth repeating.

SJ – 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?

SJ – I know I should eat right, exercise my body and my brain, meditate etc., but I feel like I’m standing in quicksand, going nowhere. What’s wrong with me?

Joshua- Your body suffers the condition of your mind and soul.

SJ – You mean I look like I am?

Joshua –  Exactly!

SJ – Ouch!  Have you looked at me lately? I could stand to lose a few pounds.

Joshua – How much negative energy are you carrying around?

SJ- A lot and none of it is my fault.

Joshua – Making a joke are we?

SJ – Okay some of it is, but have you seen the state of the world? Have you seen my life, the choices I made?

Joshua – Exactly! Choices you made. Remember your soul is not here just for grins, it has an agenda.  Your body is simply a vehicle for the soul to experience a wide range of emotions and to learn to come to terms with human feelings.

The gifts or talents your body inherits are used to sustain your human condition and that of your community. Your gifts reflect your soul’s agenda, the condition of your soul, and what your soul needs to do in this life experience.

SJ – So my gifts or talents are to be used for something other than a caressing of my ego?

Joshua – The way in which you choose to use or not uses these gifts is a reflection of the condition of the health of your mind; meaning how well you are able to keep your ego in check.

SJ –To get back to my soul’s agenda:  I was not quite the innocent baby I thought I was?

Joshua – Not quite, your soul brought some baggage with it: Karma from past lives; lessons it needs to learn, wrongs it needs to right etc.

There is a purpose and reason for every soul born onto this earth. It’s up to you to figure out what that is and to accomplish that goal.

Souls shop for a body just as you shop for clothes. You know what you want to spend, where you want to go in them and what function these clothes will have. Your soul chooses its parents based on the physical DNA and the environment the parents can offer in order for the soul to experience the obstacles it needs to overcome for spiritual advancement.

SJ – You mean moral issues?

Joshua – More like life lessons. In order for souls to learn from their human experience they use each other to experience different realities. Let us say in one lifetime you experienced the pain of rejection and abandonment from your father. In your next lifetime the roles may be reversed.

It is hard to understand how the soul works with the body but let me explain this to you: The soul is you. You are not your body. You are your soul. Your body is simply your vehicle. How you treat your body is a reflection of the condition of your soul. An abused body is telling you that your mind needs work; a dysfunctional mind is telling you that your soul needs work.

Respect your soul and your body will function better.

SJ – So if I want my body to be healthy I should see to the health of my soul?

Joshua – Don’t forget the mind, the three cannot be separated until the soul chooses to return to its source.

Father, Son and Holy Ghost is a metaphor for Mind, body, spirit. In man the concept of “the Trinity” is created as it is in heaven.

SJ – I feel like my personal trinity is in a constant struggle. Can I become aware of my own soul sickness and cure the body?

Joshua – The soul is in charge here. There comes a time when the soul is ready to leave the existence it was forced into. That is why it is so hard to exercise, eat well, stop smoking etc. You know better and you know what to do but the soul has its own agenda.

SJ – Are you suggesting that when the soul has had enough of the body (the body it chose) it will callously say farewell, so long, see you? Are you seriously suggesting that we are helpless in the face of the soul’s wants and needs?

Joshua – If the soul cannot get the body on the right path to accomplish the goal it has set for itself, or if it has already accomplished that goal and sees no reason to stay, then yes, it’s going home.

SJ – We can’t overcome our souls, ourselves? Willpower is not what it’s all about? I am distressed. I care about my body.

Joshua – No you don’t. It’s of little consequence to you. It must suffer the soul’s sickness so that the soul will seek healing.

SJ – So the body is letting the soul know that the soul needs help?

Joshua – Yes and I repeat this because this answer is important: Just as the three in heaven are one, so are you. Just as God, the Son and the Holy Ghost are three in one, so are you. You are mind, body and spirit.

The physical world is a choice of experiences to help you to know God and for God to know you.

SJ – So I have to use my mind to its fullest potential, exercise my body and pray or meditate for the sake of my soul. I think I’ve heard this somewhere before.

Old Age

OLD AGE

SJ – My intention is to share wisdom garnered from my life; from my
own soul memories and from my muse whom I have named Joshua.

I’ve just had another birthday and I guess I should be happy that I’m still here but old age is creeping up and I’m not thrilled about the physical changes that are land
sliding towards me.

Joshua – The soul decides when you die but you decide how you live.  Your
old age depends on your personal assessment of what it means to be old.

SJ – Are you saying that old age is a state of mind?

Joshua – The natural thing to do for most of you is to behave in your old age the way you saw your parents behave. But now with mass communication you can see how others handle aging.   

I know that DNA is an important factor here but remember you are mind, body and soul and you must get the three working in unison if you want to leave this world with a happy frame of mind.

SJ – What about life’s tragedies: environmental disasters, disease, stupid people?

Joshua – Circumstances will always interfere but if you are healthy in your three areas of direct responsibility you will manage to have a decent life in your golden years.

SJ – Direct responsibility; I am responsible for me and I don’t like it! It’s so much easier to blame someone or something else.

Joshua – Remember I said that the condition of your body is a reflection on the health of your soul. Your soul has a lot of power over your body. And your mind has control of the
energy vibrations you send out to the world. That is why it is so important to observe the teachings of the great masters who taught love.

SJ – And the mind is connected to the soul? And the trouble comes when we are disconnected?

Joshua – No, you can never disconnect the three (mind, body and soul), the trouble comes when you forget that you are a holy trinity. The more time you waste on being angry at the world the more difficult your journey will be. Being angry at anyone is a
total waste of time and you know that, so yes I am saying be a little self centered here when it comes to anger and push it away for the benefit of receiving and living a healthy old age. The same goes for regret: you can’t take back what has already transpired. You can try to make amends which might be commendable in some cases but generally you need to just move
forward.

SJ – Move forward? Easy for you to say, you’re free of physical restraints while those of
us down here are dragging around old baggage and old bodies.

Joshua – If you are stuck it’s because of your own thoughts and beliefs or to put it bluntly the lies you have told yourself through the years.

SJ – Like what?

Joshua – Lies like you’re going to be weak, fragile, demented, pretty much useless. All of that is a mind set. You can still accomplish much it’s just that by now you are more in tune with your surroundings; you’re not so myopic concerning goals. You will move through life at a slower pace but that is only because you are wiser.

SJ –  Slower? You do know that time is a wasting; I can’t really afford to move slower.

Joshua – Always remember that whatever happens to you was your choice either on a conscious level, a subconscious level or a super conscious.

SJ – Could you just explain each level?

Joshua – A conscious level means that you are facing the consequences of decisions you made while you where wide awake and aware of your body. For instance: who you chose for a mate, for friends, for jobs, for pleasure, for fun etc.  Many factors that are in your life are there because you put yourself in that situation. So why waste your time with regrets or being angry when consequences come back to hit you in the face?

Subconsciously you make decisions for reasons you are not aware of based on the circumstances of your childhood or where you lived or the times you live in.

Again stop whining because even these decisions you chose to live through, to work through so that you would have the opportunity to rise above and beyond your upbringing. This is part of soul growth, so to be angry with your parents or society for whatever reason is to be angry with yourself. This is your karma that you are working
through, your reason for existing on this planet in this lifetime. So bless the opportunities presented to you to grow spiritually, mentally and physically. After all if you had been born into Paradise why bother to be born at all?

SJ – Some of us might take issue with that, I mean isn’t it our goal to live in paradise?

Joshua – Yes but Paradise was not on the planet. Paradise was a spiritual existence. The Adam and Eve story was a way to explain what you all had lost in a way that physical minds could understand.

SJ – Okay I don’t really want to get into the biblical stories at the moment. You were saying …

Joshua – The third option was about decisions made on a super-conscious or soul level. This is where Karma comes into play. You don’t have karma with other people you have karma with yourself.

You made a soul decision to be who you are; who your parents are; where you live and even your physical appearance. Those around you are here to help you on your path to
spiritual awareness; to propel you into learning what you’re made of on a soul level.

You designed your whole life with the sole purpose of elevating yourself into a higher spiritual existence so that you don’t have to come back into a physical body, so that you
could stay in heaven or Paradise.

In other words you have to earn your ticket and you can’t do this if you are walking around the planet pissed off all the time. All of the great teachers have taught that you are here to experience love.

SJ – I’m living on the edge of harmony and I have to fight everyday to stay there, never mind living in complete harmony. But that’s my goal isn’t it?

Joshua –  You are all teetering on the edge of harmony as you say. Your goal is to take that step over the fence into complete harmony with the universe.

SJ – But first we have to be in harmony with ourselves?

Joshua – Happy Birthday! Soundestjewel, you’re well on your way!

Worry, Worry

June 21, 1011

WORRY, WORRY

SJ – I’m back to bother you Joshua.

Just when I think I have my life in order, that my spiritual journey is keeping my mortal life in check and that I have nothing to worry about something pops up to worry me. So now I am exhausted from worrying about why I’m still worrying about inconsequential things etc. etc. blah blah blah. . .

Please Joshua, don’t let me babble on and on. Say something!

Joshua – You need to realize that most things are out of your control and worrying is a waste of time.

SJ – Easy for you to say as you sit up there in serene bliss. I can’t stop myself from worrying, and believe me I try cause I know better. But nothing I say to myself works. I think the only way to not to worry is to live in a bubble; away from people, the environment, even animals.

Joshua – This is what you chose when you decided to inhabit a human body and live on the planet. And it is precisely why you came.

SJ – Are you saying I chose chaos, disaster and tragedy over peace and quiet?  Are you saying I chose crying, heartbreak, and emotional torture over security and love? I thought I came for love?

Joshua – You came to earn, to learn and to give love in spite of all these difficulties. When you can overcome the ego’s need to control you earn grace or positive energy.

SJ – The spiritual world is predictable, peaceful and joyful.

Joshua – Precisely! And personally I can only take so much of that. Supposedly when we (spiritual entities) are evolved enough to feel the pure bliss of Positive Energy (God) we won’t miss all of the emotional turmoil you experience on earth.

SJ – So you become voyeurs in the guise of guides come to help us poor mortals?

Joshua – My, my, you are cynical. But yes, that’s part of it, the other is to earn grace to reach that promised bliss and of course you know we do love you and your solid mass of
cells.

SJ – How romantically you put it Joshua. I’m just a solid mass of cells?

Joshua – Without your soul, yeah, pretty much that’s what you are. . . a rock! Just evolution taking shape, energy taking form.

What’s Wrong With Me?

SJ – I know I should eat right, exercise my body and my brain, meditate etc., but I feel like I’m standing in quicksand, going nowhere. What’s wrong with me?

Joshua- Your body suffers the condition of your mind and soul.

SJ – You mean I look like I am?

Joshua –  Exactly!

SJ – Ouch!  Have you looked at me lately? I could stand to lose a few pounds.

Joshua – How much negative energy are you carrying around?

SJ- A lot and none of it is my fault.

Joshua – Making a joke are we?

The gifts or talents your body inherits are used to sustain your human condition and that of your community. Your gifts reflect your soul’s agenda, the condition of your soul, and what your soul needs to do in this life experience.

SJ – So my gifts or talents are to be used for something other than a caressing of my ego?

Joshua – The way in which you choose to use or not uses these gifts is a reflection of the condition of the health of your mind; meaning how well you are able to keep your ego in check.

The physical world is a choice of experiences to help you to know God and for God to know you.

SJ – So I have to use my mind to its fullest potential, exercise my body and pray or meditate for the sake of my soul. I think I’ve heard this somewhere before.

Different By Design

Joshua – You are all different by design so that you may achieve the awesome experience of unity.  You are imperfect by design so that you may enjoy the awesome experience of achievement.

SJ – So do we feel sadness by design?

Joshua – No that’s your doing.

SJ – Joy?

Joshua – That is completely up to you.

SJ – How about anger?

Joshua – Again, up to you. Why do you think you don’t feel happy all the time?

SJ – Somebody is annoying me or causing me pain.

Joshua – Because they’re different?

SJ – No because they’re annoying!

Joshua – Do you have to let them annoy you?

SJ – That’s kind of my job.

Joshua – How so?

SJ – If I’m mad, I’m inclined to set them straight.

Joshua – And you think it’s your job to set everyone straight?

SJ – Sometimes; not all the time.

Joshua – The Universe will take care of its own. So relax and take care of your own self.

SJ – That would work if everyone did that but it’s never going to happen.

Joshua – It could, if one by one you give it a try; take one step at a time.

SJ – Isn’t this what you’re doing, setting me straight?

Joshua – I am, after all, your spirit guide. Besides you asked and I’m just giving you information. As you know, I’m not human.

SJ – Please forgive my irreverence.  Did God create this situation? Did he design our imperfections; are differences?

Joshua – No you did.

SJ – Why would we do that?

Joshua – Remember you were souls first. You saw the planet and had the free will to come here.

SJ – So we’re the fallen angels?

Joshua – Not in the sense you mean. You are not devils but you did cause negative energy.

SJ – Which is the opposite of God’s positive energy?

Joshua – Correct.  When you first set foot on the planet. . .

SJ – You mean when we first had feet, ha!  Sorry, I’m being irreverent again.

Joshua – Okay when you first had feet. . .you arrived in wonderment and joy; then you felt bewilderment and fear.  Thinking that this should be the state of the world you continued with these emotions.

SJ – So how do we get out of this mess we’ve created?

Joshua – As a whole you all like it here so you and the planet are not going anywhere for a while. But as individuals you can choose to not return to the physical world, in physical form.

SJ – How?

Joshua – You do this by growing spiritually while you are still in human form.

SJ – So that we don’t have to come back again and again?

Joshua – Eventually your soul will be so saturated with positive energy you will choose to stay in spirit form for eternity; at least until you decide to give it another go, just for fun.

SJ – Can’t we just choose to stay in spirit form?

Joshua – No. You have to earn your way to God.

SJ – Just like all the religious leaders tell us.

Joshua – Yes, but that’s another discussion. I think we’ve covered enough for now.

SJ – Thank you for spending time with me.

Joshua – You are most welcome!

Salvation

SALVATION

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.
