I was surprised to discover that there is a “theological study of angels” named “angelology.”
It is interesting to note in that article how every religion has their own beliefs about what an angel is; which of course, only gives further support to their own ideologies.
When humans experience something “supernatural” then, an immediate explanation is required so it could be expressed to others and that explanation will carry in them, their own beliefs.
Angel with wings, pretty looking androgynous angels in white and gold, etc.
The limit is our imagination influenced by our own beliefs.
Some individuals believe that in the “angel world” there is a hierarchy just like in the “office world.”
There is the CEO known as God, then Seraphims, Cherubims, Archangels, regular “angels” and so on and so forth. Those are things to memorize and study in “Angelology.” 🙂
Sometimes we may talk to someone who has experienced an “angelic healing” from Michael the Angel, or Metatron or someone else.
Their immediate response is unconditional worship. These people will turn into hard-core believers.
The realization that their consciousness has changed due to that experience is minimal.
Before that experience, their world was the Office, the family sitcom etc. After that, they developed an interest in healing and “spirituality” aka. spirits.
Their consciousness changed.
If they had a serious disease and they were cured, they don’t ask themselves about the significance of that. They are happy to only worship and to tell the story.
A disease is part of the journey and so is the cure, but this life is not the only journey.
“Angels” or beings of light, know that every human being is located in different consciousness and “their help” is to become that trigger for that change of consciousness.
The word “help” is in quotes because “help” may not be in their vocabulary. There is something that needs to be completed and they have a part in this “unlimited game” which we call life.
There are many beings of light working together at this time. Raising human consciousness is part of their task as well as “helping” Nature from human abuse and negligence.
It is that big human “I” which does not allow us to perceive the Universe in a different way, in Totality.
A different consciousness is needed.
Lost in beliefs and the economical advantages of the “business world” we may overlook the obvious.
We don’t join a religion or an ideology or follow moral standards to become an “angel.” We join it to start our personal journey of self-realization. Some may need that, others may not.
Life is not interested on particular “brand names” to sponsor as “the only ones,” for the journey is in itself the destination at every moment; and everyone of us has his own path.
“Life is like a monopoly game. There are players playing on the board of life, but also there are other players who are influencing the players in the game.”
Mathias, the wise tree; said that to his friend Ananda.
Many “spiritual,” metaphysical paths bring the awareness of the players who are influencing the “real” players on the board of life.
They call them “beings of light,” “ghosts,” “spirits,” “archangels,” “angels,” etc.
These beings are the ones influencing the game.
We don’t see them. We may not be able to communicate with them, but they can do that with us if needed.
Some may know the darker side of this experience for there are many types of consciousness in the “spirit” realm reflecting the human world.
But some may know the beneficial side of this experience when a being of light contacts someone. A being of light contacts a human being, chooses a human being. It cannot be the other way around.
Yet for some, all of the above is nothing but rubbish.
It is all according to what we need to experience at the time. Everything changes and as our awareness increases, we could be able to experience other things in life.
A being of light may be playing “Santa Claus” for some individuals. Worshiping them has been the typical behavior from many. As our consciousness develops, then we could see that the motive for such a connection is to increase our consciousness, our awareness for our next level of experience.
The path is different for everyone, although it is the same path. This is paradoxical.
If we are able to perceive our own immortality then because of that our acceptance of what life offers becomes complete and unconditional. The seed for a new state of consciousness is born at that time. When the student is ready, the teacher may appear…
However, just like when we change grades in school, we also change teachers.
Self-realization may be the apparent destination, but that journey has so many different paths according to the state of consciousness of the student.
Self-realization is a “one-to-one” individualized training. It cannot be put as a “mass teaching” in a book or in a religion. Of course, “Mass teachings” and religions are not “bad” but part of the experience of life. Those experiences are the “agents” for change in consciousness.
That is why, anything and everything that occurs throughout our paths in life is necessary, useful and perfect. When we learn to accept that without thinking about it and move on, life can flow through us and change the chapter onto the next one.
When we complete the different chapters of the book of life, the book is no longer needed and then we may discover that reading the chapters of the book until the last page, was meant so we could start forgetting about it…
What is the purpose of living then?
To enjoy the experience. 🙂
It was a sunny afternoon. The atmosphere felt pretty heavy due to the general human vibration of a continuous “diet” of worries, anxieties and stresses of the “modern” life. Despite that heaviness, Nature was very welcoming with its colorful beauty and its therapeutic scents in the park where Mathias, the wise tree; resides.
Raysha and Ananda wanted to speak with Mathias, but Raysha wasn’t able to hear him. Then, Raysha heard a voice: “ Wait. I will be right there soon,” and along with that voice she had a vision of beings of light reunited in a circle. It seemed like a council. A being of light flew to the middle of the circle to share something to the group, and then went back to his former place while another being of light shared in the middle of the circle in turn.
Mathias: “Welcome friends! I was in a council. Mathias feels very refreshed after one of those.”
Ananda: A council? What for?
Mathias: To maintain the balance on Earth. Some people are only destroying some parts of the Earth.
Ananda: Who is the leader of that council?
Mathias: Everyone shares.
Ananda: oh! No leader… interesting. That is unheard of in our society of human beings…I have a question related to that friend….
I have realized that God is conceived as a human idea only, which comes from the way that we have created this society. There is a government and there are people in a hierarchy. There is a leader and followers underneath. It seems to me that humans have arranged the same idea for the Divine. There is God and other “governors” underneath with their representatives on Earth…. Angels, archangels, saints, etc. Isn’t this correct?
Mathias: Friend; Mathias just came from a council and you asked if there was someone who was the leader. Mathias told you that it was a sharing. That is what you mean in your question?
Ananda: I refer to the human idiosyncrasy. God is the king, the father. He is the one who decides and manages things and underneath him there are people who “represent” him. A human form to follow. The point here is not about the existence of God. That is not the point. I am just referring to our human vision towards that which only projects a belief based on what is known to humans.
Mathias: About that human vision, you could speak better than Mathias.
Mathias will only say that the one which you call God is a fantastic being.
Ananda: A being….
Mathias: Fantastic being, my friend!
Ananda: But now, there is no being which I call God.
Mathias: The way you conceived God before and the way you conceive God now has changed…only in your mind and your heart; but essentially it remains the same.
Ananda: That is an interesting answer. Mathias does not truly answer my question but Mathias allows me to experience and open myself to discover through my own changes.
You let me go with my ideas of the moment, and even though I may have asked the same question before in a different way, your answer is not the same now… I could see that an authoritative answer such as : “God is this” will only limit my own discovery; then I could say that God is a discovery…
Mathias: Which you will discover according to your location…
Mathias: The way your consciousness is situated to observe. Your perception goes according to that.
There is a painting. Many people will look at it in a different way according to their location.
Ananda: Then, even though those are different locations, none of them is wrong… but humans are always trying to convince others about the righteousness of their own perceptions, their own locations.
Mathias: Why Mathias should try to change you? To beautify you but not to change you.
Ananda: Mathias you helped me to know myself as a being…
Mathias: Mathias only helped with a snip here and a snip there to beautify that small growing plant who is now a shrub. Mathias did not change your essence.
Ananda: Interesting way that you have to interact. It is definitely not human…
Mathias: Which is neither good nor bad, only different…
Ananda: yes… only different, my friend!
“Dear brother, Suffering is due to our karmic accounts. Gulzar Dadi is “karmateet” and yet she has an operation of kidney stone and it seems karmic bondages with the body still remains. Kindly clarify my viewpoint. Also once she said in her class that when Baba used to come he would would cure her fever with loving drishti. So why not cure the problems of the body now. Please give me your thoughts on this.”
Everything that “you” experience is a karmic “account.”
Suffering is part of that experience. To be “karmateet” or beyond the effects of “karma” does not depend on what is perceived as happening to “you.” (Sickness, suffering, elation, winning the lottery, etc.)
It depends on what you “make out” of it. 🙂
That is why the teaching on forgetting the “I,” or to be a “detached observer,” a “witness” is in place.
The body may hurt. That is an experience. To go “beyond” that experience does not mean not to experience pain; but not to make a “trauma” out of that experience by identifying yourself with that pain and its consequences.
Suffering is mental agony, which we inflict upon ourselves. We have control over that.
Physical pain is an experience which brings discomfort. It will go away in time; but only our minds can make that pain to last for a very long time, well beyond its normal course.
Baba or any being of light helping humanity at this point in time will not “do” anything, which is not already “recorded” in our destiny. Any experience has a “process” to unfold. Once that process is over, then that karma will be over.
If you have a disease that is obligating you to look closely at your health and that disease is meant to teach you something which will be of ultimate gain in your inner growth; it will be “bad” for you if that disease is gone as soon as you are aware of it.
Baba and other beings of light are aware of our own personal “process” and that disease will go away when the time is right; that is, when we have changed our previous ways and attitudes; when we become conscious of the value of our health and act accordingly.
Everything happening to us has a “reason” beyond what we can see at one moment. It is a “process,” change happens usually little by little rather than all at once.
Everything is beneficial when we have the wisdom to “see” beyond the obvious.
“hi, I have been in knowledge for 3yrs now, I want to know how to deal with spirits.. I often get affected with the dark energy,,,and I need to get help to clear them.(I go to spiritual healer). why is this happening to me? I do wake up for yoga.. can you teach me how and what must I do? I want to go deeper in yoga.”
The discovery of existence of spirits is an interesting Aha! moment . Many times we believe that everything is physical, but there is complete “interbeingness” (inter-relationships) with all types of beings, corporeal and non-corporeal.
Why is this happening to you? By the answer above, you could realize that it is “karma.” 🙂
There are some experiences, which we need in our “process,” and they will come from different sources.
Avyakt7 will share this experience with you.
One day in a healing session at the beginning of my ‘healer’ side, my client started crying heavily. The energy coming from her was so strong that Avyakt7 fell down and lost consciousness for about 2 seconds. Unknowingly, during that short time Avyakt7 had a being that “adhered” into Avyakt7’s personality at that moment. That being was generous hearted but at the same time had a personality as if it was mourning or lamenting.
Indisputably that affected Avyakt7’s personality as far as his view of the world and life, during that time. It wasn’t “me,” but Avyakt7 was being influenced. Many could think that this was “bad” for Avyakt7; but in fact; it has helped to change Avyakt7’s personality from a “go getter, self centered” individual into something different.
That took some time. There was a process.
It is the same as when you live with another person and you imbibe some of their characteristics by just living with them.
When that influence was no longer needed, Avyakt7’s destiny had a solution and that entity went away, allowing Avyakt7 to fully smile again.. 🙂 as a different person. The karma was settled.
As far as “dark energies,” that may come from other persons trying to hurt you. As you can see, that is a karmic consequence, something that you may need to discover with help.
Anyhow, you may need to learn to protect yourself by expanding your own energy and to fill the room where you sleep with your own energy. When you become sensible to energies, you can tell when something has changed in your state of being, and you need to “clean” yourself energetically speaking. It is very important to learn this, and you may need to learn it from someone who is experienced.
When something like this happens to you, that is the perfect opportunity for you to learn more about it. That is why, it is in your destiny. Be open minded to the signals that life brings. Do not be afraid.
“Do” your part and let time “do” its work.
As far as “yoga” or connection with the Divine. That “yoga” is meant to be the expression of feelings. It is not about “thinking.” Yoga is an experience “inside you.”
To feel, believe or experience going “up there” is a way to open doors for other energies to come into you.
As we become more conscious of ourselves and the distinct moods that we could experience, we will know when we need to “clean” our energy. As a matter of fact, it is a good practice to clean the “doors” to yourself; that is your main chakras.
The above may sound “spooky” for people who have no experienced these things; but your experience is not “normal” and so, should be the solution.
Enjoy the process. It is a game for an immortal being.
One of the best explanations I have found about this “process” could be read in the “Hua Hu Ching,” Chapter 59.
“Greed for enlightenment and immortality is no different than greed for material wealth.
It is self-centered and dualistic, and thus an obstacle to true attainment. Therefore these states are never achieved by those who covet them; rather, they are the reward of the virtuous.
If you wish to become a divine immortal angel, then restore the angelic qualities of your being through virtue and service. This is the only way to gain the attention of the immortals who teach the methods of energy enhancement and integration that are necessary to reach the divine realm.
These angelic teachers cannot be sought out; it is they who seek out the student.
When you succeed in connecting your energy with the divine realm through high awareness and the practice of undiscriminating virtue, the transmission of the ultimate subtle truths will follow. This is the path that all angels take to the divine realm.”
There are many beings of light who are helping at this time. This is the “Godly team.”
This is important to know because your affiliation to a particular religion or creed does not determine that these “divine beings,” will “choose you.” There is more to that. Many lifetimes are behind that.
It is more about our own qualities and capacity to live a virtuous life of service to humanity, which is not related with belonging to an organized group or devotional practice. It is basically your innate quality to help humanity without looking for an ulterior motive. Being self-less. Humanity is you.
Sincerity, honesty. Back to the basics.
Moreover, those qualities do not appear all of a sudden in this “lifetime,” but as we are aware of the law of karma, we recognize that what we are here “today” is nothing else but the consequence of other activities in our past lives.
Thus, angels are “meant to be,” not something that happens all of a sudden out of just joining a group or performing “important” deeds. Angels are helping hands to humanity. The rest is devotional imagination.
It is important to know that in life, every experience that someone goes through will lead that person to his destination, which is none but to experience the range of his own spiritual capacity.
The inner work of a person who will become an “angel” is not easy, for there is nothing as hard as to take the “rust out of the self,” it is like peeling your own skin of cover ups, weaknesses and complexes; just to be free and light, again.
Light so you can be light for others.
Life “tests” and experiences are meant to clean up an individual. The tests are many and there is no “failure” there but just the appreciation of your own capacity for spiritual growth.
The bus of destiny will unload some individuals at different corners according to their roles in life. That is their capacity. Stop signs are located at every corner. Only few will go the whole ride to the last bus stop and this capacity, will bring help from “up above.”
All is good. Life is good… 🙂
Thank you for your great questions!
Ah! We are going into the interpretation “game.”
I am not saying that what you are experiencing is neither an illusion nor real nor a dream. All what I am saying is that whatever you think/feel/perceive that you are experiencing, is not “you.” That is all. Detached observer. The points in these sharings are meant to go in that route, to discover the self.
In that apparent inoffensive phrase “I must make an effort to be the best possible,” lies lots of issues with our long friend “ego.” By discovering the self, there is no need to be “better” for you have found what “is.”
About God. What do you think God is? What do you think BapDada is? Is it true that what you “think”of God, is truly God? Are our thoughts able to grasp God? So, you have an experience with God. Does it mean that someone else who had another experience but it wasn’t with Bapdada, did not have an experience with God? Haven’t Sakar Murlis mentioned that according to our “faith” so our experiences?
Do you think that God is a point of light sitting in Parandham? Is that thought God? 🙂 Isn’t that just information?
Dear soul, As mentioned many times and in different ways throughout this blog; before knowing God as He is and how He is, I need to know the self, experience the self. Why? because God is a “soul,” and I am a “soul” as well. Isn’t that what Gyan says? If I have not experienced “I” the soul, can i know God? Knowing is not words, concepts, pictures and faces. Knowing is being. Experiencing. Therefore, you want to know God? Know the self. Not because the self is God, but because by experiencing that soul consciousness, I could be like Him. See? One more item which has been repeated many times already: There is no separation at the soul level. Separation only exists at the physical level. Something to churn about. 🙂
According to Gyan, all souls who enter this Drama, must stay “in it” until the end of the cycle, either by taking rebirth or by “being there” without taking rebirth for some “time.” However, it is assumed that God is the only soul in the Drama who could “come and go” as He “wishes” but yet, He does it as it is in the Drama.
In my experience, at this time you will have “positive energies” as you call them “ascended masters” or “angels” or “beings of light” or however you want to call them, which offer a “service” to humanity as Brahma Baba is doing to Brahmin souls. All of that is part of “Godly energies.”
In this avyakt Murli is clearly expressed: “Therefore, do not be afraid. In order for you to face anything, BapDada the backbone will be revealed through any being at any time and even now is revealing Himself.”
Also, you have the “challenging” energies. Called “darkness.” All of that is “real” for some. Not real for others. As an article expressed about “reality” what matters is how that experience “transforms” the self. That is the bottom line. There is a point where we cannot longer figure things out intellectually. It becomes worthless, for it only fills up our intellect with “new” ideas; which we think is “knowing” but it isn’t. It is just information which will not reflect a “true” reality for we cannot put “reality” or rather our “experience” of reality into words or ideas. Words cannot express fully that.
Finally, according to Gyan and “my experience,” this cycle of time is eternally repeating. “the fly passing by now,” is an eternal “movie” which will be shown to us again in another cycle, which will be, just like this one… 🙂
