When you can allow people to express their Light their own way, to fulfill their destiny and walk the path to the drummer they hear, then you are, in essence, doing the same thing God does -- allowing them the freedom of their expression.
We often ask the Mystical Traveler, "Am I ready for my next initiation, and if not, what can I do to get it? What do I have to do?" And the answer has always been, "Do spiritual exercises." That's always been the answer. It's never changed.
A recycling process within each individual continually allows the opportunity to experience all the laws of Spirit. You continually have a chance to check your expression as it is returned. The Spirit returns all things to you, as if to say, "Are you sure?" - John-Roger, DSS (From: The Way Out Book, p. 27)
A cardinal principle of the Spiritual Warrior is: It is not what is happening that is important; what is important is what you are doing with it. Thus you say, "Regardless of what it looks like, regardless of my perception, I will use everything for my advancement, upliftment, and growth."
Who would you like God to be? "I'd like God to be really good and love me, and bestow all the greatest aspects of what God can be on my consciousness." That's a nice idea. Would you be willing to own it as true for you?
When you are in the Soul, you can more easily see the pitfalls and the obstacles of your life on the lower levels. You can experience a love for and a oneness with other people that is beyond anything you have ever experienced before.
Awakening to your inner awareness is a great challenge. To awaken, keep going back inside of you. The greatest challenge is not outer space; it's inner space. The last frontier is inside. And what's so nice is that there is no end to it.
Some people are afraid to die because they don't know what the next step will be. It's loving. When you die, you go straight to loving.
