change and motivation
While watching an Anthony Hopkins\' movie last night there was one line of dialogue that stuck out like a kick in the head. It was \"I\'ve never known anyone in my life who actually changed.\" That very same night there was an interview withan ex-NFL football player who got hooked on steroids in college and had a short and very traumatic time in the NFL. Now, many years later, clean and sober and religious, he\'s written a book about his experiences and in truth there seemed to be much in him that had changed. Unfortunately it usually takes something quite catastrophic for anyone to even begin to think about changing. The Betty Ford Center is one of the most successful drug and alcohol treatment centers and even it has only a 33 percent success rate. It takes real courage and commitment to want to make a change in one\'s personal life. TO step up and own their own lives and let go of the excuses of this is what family, upbringing, and life have made me. It takes something far, far stronger, however, to actually do something about changing. Working with so many people, no matter how bad their lives are, I get to see so little change in them exactly because it\'s the most difficult thing any human being can do. At most people take a step or two in a more postive direction and that\'s all Guidance say we can hope for even though it frustrates the heck out of me.
Much of what we are is a result of tens of thousands of past lives of experiences and negative programming. Even though our Guidance sends us into lifetimes where we may have some chance to learn some of these lessons, very few if any ever do. That is why the Council of Nine and so many other people\'s channelings state the very evident fact that as little as 2 to 3 % of people ever complete the mission they came to planet Earth to accomplish.
I still get lots of people asking me about their missions from the past postings of the channeling article. When I explain to them the situation, the times we\'re now living in, and recommend that without a strong ability to listen to their Guidance they would never achieve their mission anyway, only as few as 1 in 40 ever even attempt to sit down themselves and do the very simple channeling exercise for themselves. The laziness and lack of spiritual motivation in humanity is evident, and yes the programming on this planet has all but ruled out any possibility of free unprogrammed thought but people\'s lack of intent to try is exponentially multiplied by such programming. It is as Mark Twain once said, \"The human race is a bunch of cowards and I am the standard bearer.\" Well he wasn\'t in any way, shape or form a coward but the message is clear. His observations during his grand worldwide experience proved what is still true today; Man is a self-willed coward with little or no spirituality or concept of what that term means.
Men may be led around through life by their privates, but as channeled somewhere before in the postings, women would rather be wrong as a group than right by themselves.
How bad do things have to get before people want to change? Well we\'re all just about to find out, but even that, like those who too late wanted to get onboard Noah\'s Ark when the rain started coming down, won\'t be enough to save anyone. One of Guidance\'s favorite analogies is the movie Groundhog Day. I know it influenced me almost as much as anything, the thought that my \'dismal plight\' would not only carry on in this lifetime, but for many, many lifetimes to come until I got up the courage to do something about it. It wasn\'t long before that something became surrender and now, as old \'aquaintances\' can attest, I\'ve changed.
If you need a reason then just take a look at your circumstances right now and the same old lessons you\'re still learning this hundredth time around, and then think about what it takes to change. If you need motivation, just ask your Guidance a) are you already going on ascension or did your ticket get cancelled? b) how much worse are things going to be starting very, very shortly and are you prepared or even ready for the eventualities that may occur? c) how many lifetimes will it be before you get another opportunity such as this one to take giant steps forward in your spiritual growth and to leave all those old boring 3D lessons behind?
Some of the darkest people I\'ve had to work with in offering them a chance to make amends have been told by Guidance that it would be 100,000 more lifetimes if they did not choose to step up and do the work now. Think those old TV reruns are boring now, wait till you\'ve watched them over and over again for that many lifetimes to come.
Get your head out of the 3D Matrix and make those initial steps that will, like Amy is doing, leave the past behind so that her new future may be as bright as it is for the entire 5D planet. ALL of the Matrix is a lie, no matter what little parts of it you\'re solemnly attached to and won\'t let go of, be it some religion, the pursuit of a bigger and better car or way of life, or even the most often touted myth of \'Soulmates\' and familial love. It\'s a school and ANYTHING you\'re attached to at this grade level will only serve to stop you from graduating to higher and higher levels of experience, places where Love is real and rich just like the lives going to be lived there. Start with the forgiveness exercise from the Files section. Ask Amy and any of the others who have done it, it\'s not a one day thing, not even a one week thing sometimes, but if done correctly with the intent to clear up your past and move forward into a brighter future with far less baggage, there is probably nothing you can do better or cheaper than to do that exercise.
From the 25 or so lessons Guidance had me write a year or two ago, number one, the most important one, was How to Change . . .
Lesson 1 : How to Change
by Peter Farley www.4truthseekers.org
Probably no one knows more how difficult it is to change than I. You
could say I \'wrote the book\' on it.
Six or seven weeks ago before I left San Diego to do gridwork in
Florida I was working with one of the group who Guidance was
adamantly telling her she needed to look into getting a new car.
Attached as we all are to the old ways of dealing with life i.e.,
using our mind to figure out what we think is best for us given our
limited cicumstances,she baulked at doing it. Upon returning to San
Diego today it was the first thing I heard that so-and-so had had a
car accident and her car had been totalled. A little worse for the
lesson, so-and-so has begun looking into getting a new car to
replace the old one she was so so attached to.
There is a spiritual law that if we are attached to anything, Spirit
will take it away from us to show us we don\'t NEED it. We can have
almost anything our heart\'s desire, as long as we do not get
attached to things. This blocks the whole flow of things into and
out of our lives. It works with people as well as \'things\'.
If you stop for one minute and imagine this state of having
everything you NEED without the worry and pain of attachment to it,
what would it be like? The hardest lesson I had to learn in my
training was that it is a bountiful Universe and that Spirit and
Guidance want better for me than I want for myself. Holding things
to us, smothering them as the big hulking character Lenny does in
Steinbeck\'s classic novel \'Of Mice and Men\', only seeks to leave us
Attachment is what stops the flow of everything good into our lives
and leaves us with a sense of lack and of not being loved.
Surrendering to the flow only brings us proof everyday of how much
it is we are loved.
The Highest Order of Masters is the Order of the Varagi -- Varag
meaning \'detachment\'. Detachment does not mean you do not love or
have passion for life, in fact you have ten times, a thousand times,
more passion and caring because you are not trying to control the
river (Spirit) and bend it to your Will. As New Orleans found out
and many many more cities and countries will find out soon, this
does not work. To go with the flow, to work WITH Nature rather than
trying to harness her, to be a vehicle FOR Spirit, not a manipulator
OF Spirt, is the way life really works to everyone\'s highest purpose.
If true spirituality were easy, everyone of us would be Masters
already and would not need to be here in the flesh; however, Spirit
gives people the lessons THEY NEED not the lessons they want.
I have not found one \'spirtual giant\' who got where they are by any
other means than by surrendering to this process of being a co-
worker with Mother Nature, with Spirit, with thir own highest
This is the very same Guidance most people say they cannot hear
simply as an excuse because they are not yet ready to surrender
thier own will for something better in their lives.
We can all go on learning lessons eternally in the manner \'so-and-
so\' is doing, as I once did, as everyone I see is trying to do, or
we can understand the process and surrender our will to that Higher
purpose and ease into the flow of things where our will works in co-
operation with the Higher Will for everybody\'s higher good. When
Guidance says do something, is it not for everyone\'s highest good?
Will you be left without for giving, for surrendering, for not
feeling attached to that petty little something you think you hold
so dear? Can you really ever own another person\'s Being? Let it or
them go and like the butterfly we hear so much of, find out how
goodit feels to see it coming back to you in ways you never thought
Exercise 1: Practise releasing attachment to at least one thing each
and every day and watch for the spiritual signs of what Spirit
really thinks you should have and how much better it is for you.
Until you too are ready to surrender all your will to Spirit, take
daily steps to show IT you really, really care.
L and Bw, Peter
