Dear readers,  we come in love and with continuing respect for the work you are doing both on inner and outer levels in the face of the turmoil, confusion, and anger manifesting around you.  Present times are bringing change which is empowering those who do not like or want change to plant themselves firmly in what is familiar and look fondly backward to “the good old days”.
 
Currently there are a great many films, books, and television shows  built around perceived ideas of these “better times”.  This is because many are confused by the intensity of what is taking place the world over and have come to believe that earlier times were better, more peaceful, and that the issues they see today did not exist.
 
The past will always look better to some because humans tend to forget the bad and embellish the good.   However, beneath those seemingly carefree times the very same issues of today were simmering, alive and well, but  not recognized for what they were by an unawake majority.
 
Ponder the state of women’s’ equality, racial prejudice, and war mongering of the “good old days” and you will quickly understand the illusory nature of nostalgia and how a great portion of it is ignorance accepted as reality.
 
The  high frequency energies of Light now flooding earth as evolution unfolds is serving to expose much that has been  heretofore  hidden.  Keeping people ignorant is always possible when  personal power is freely surrendered to others–governments, experts, family and friends, or organized religions in the belief that these others know what is right for them and would never deceive.  This is rapidly  changing as more individuals open their eyes,  reclaim  personal power, and start to make their own decisions.
 
At this time every student of truth needs to examine world concepts of gain versus loss, concepts that perfectly reflect duality.  Third dimensional energy being an energy of time and space, duality and separation, always expresses as pairs of opposites for anyone living fully in third dimensional consciousness.  Manifestations of gain and loss appear on all levels  (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) and are accepted as normal.
 
In its attempt toward more gain and less loss according to present day standards,  the three dimensional belief system holds specific concepts  regarding the gains a person must strive for.  The un-awakened state of consciousness has accepted these concepts as truth and  struggles  to attain them.
 
Physically, many men and women intensely strive to attain (gain) a “perfect” body  according to TV, film, advertising, and fashion industry standards.  It is believed that having a so called perfect body  brings acceptance, love, and admiration, making the person superior to others.  Those  satisfied with a normal or even a “not so perfect” body are automatically relegated to the  “loss” side of the scale.
 
Intense focusing on physical perfection at any cost has resulted eating disorders, depression, lack of purpose, suicide, self loathing, lack of confidence, and ill health for the many who still accept false concepts of who and what they are and who as of yet do not know that they are consciousness, not just  physical bodies.
 
Emotionally,  many strive to gain perfect emotional stability as  defined by  “experts” who often change their ideas from day to day.   The desire to attain some concept of emotional perfection and eliminate undesirable emotions causes many to simply bury unwanted emotions in the false belief that they are then gone.
 
If you experience some emotion you dislike, simply refuse to judge it as good or bad but rather love and honor yourself through the realization that it is simply a part of who you are at this time while asking yourself;  “Is this emotion old energy clearing, or does it represent something I am still holding in my belief system?  What am I believing that is making me feel this way?”  Know that nothing  is good or bad, it is only one’s accepted concepts  about something that determines it  good or bad.
 
Often those struggling to gain some concept of emotional perfection, turn to legal or illegal drugs which seem to make things better but which in reality only  serve to mask the very emotions needing to be addressed.  Drugs block spiritual  progress.  At some point, perhaps even in a future lifetime, every individual must begin to accept, understand, and heal the emotional body through self- love rather than self- loathing.
 
Many negative emotions have to do with cellular memory and  past lives which is why certain unwanted emotions  may seem to be coming  now or have been with you your whole life.   You are now able to  realize that these emotions once served a purpose but are no longer needed.  Love them, thanking these parts of yourself for the service they may have provided in other lifetimes, and let them go.
 
Mental level gains for some (not all) is frequently about attaining as much intellectual knowledge as possible which provides them a sense of worthiness and value.  You all know people who tout their intellectual prowess on every topic to anyone who will listen in the belief that this makes them superior to others.
 
The intense drive so many have to gain ever more wealth and material goods even when  not needed,  is  a manifestation of the belief that wealth will give them the acceptance, credibility, and love that every soul yearns for.   The loss of wealth (duality) for those who identify themselves as their wealth,  has caused many to take their own lives.
 
Spiritually, there are those who continue to see spiritual gain as reaching some imagined  pinnacle through certain rites, rituals, teachings,  and products which often only serve to keep them ignorant of the fact that what they seek is not in the outer things.  Then after many years devoted to some spiritual path, these dear ones experience a tremendous sense of loss and failure because their efforts did not result in their self created expectations.
 
Those driven by a desire for the physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual gain within the third dimensional belief system will experience some success, often great success, but will also have failure simply because duality and separation consciousness manifests  as pairs of opposites.
 
The reality existing behind all actions for gain on the three dimensional level is the soul’s yearning for recognition.  This yearning  is an inner nudge to awaken  into the real completeness , wholeness, and unconditional love/Real Self/Oneness  that is already present.
 
The un-awakened state of consciousness does not yet know that what they strive for is already within and so when they experience an inner push for more (physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually)  they  interpret it according to their attained level of awareness which is usually  in and as forms of achievement (gain).
 
That inner yearning and hunger experienced on all levels will always remain even after the perfect body, partner, bank account or any other goal has been attained because the wholeness, completeness, and love sought through these things does not exist in them.  The soul can never be satisfied with baubles.
 
As individuals awaken to the reality of who and what they really are, they begin to understand  that everything they sought in outer has only served to hold them in bondage to these things.  At this point the  intense striving and struggle for outer gain  begins to dissolve.  The awakening individual begins to understand that the material gains he believed necessary for his health, wealth, and happiness,  represent what is already present within.
 
This is how evolutionary learning happens.  Along the way of many lifetimes, every one plays the role of seeking and searching, finding and losing, success and failure, according to the concepts and beliefs of the time.  The three dimensional tools and actions of gain work when a person is in alignment with their energy but at some point of spiritual readiness, they stop working.
 
At this point there often comes an intense but fruitless period of struggle and effort to make things  go back to the way they were.   Here many lose hope and declare themselves to be failures rather than understanding that these experiences are graduations, not failures–indications that they have outgrown and are no longer in alignment with some previously held three dimensional belief or concept.
 
We are not saying that all goals are unnecessary.  In third dimensional living many goals are necessary for learning and surviving  until a state of consciousness is attained in which everything needed automatically manifests.  What we are saying is that serious students of truth must not allow three dimensional concepts of “gains that must be attained” or “losses that must be eliminated” to hold power over them.
 
Never allow these concepts to validate or define your worth.  Every individual is a Divine Being.  Since there is only ONE reality, law, cause, and substance  there is nothing else anyone could be. What would it be made of?
 
Many experiences of  gain or loss are chosen events, facets of one’s personal soul contract put there with the help of one’s  Guides and honest self evaluation before incarnating  for the purpose of creating a necessary learning experience. Gain is every seemingly small bit of spiritual awareness that bubbles up into consciousness as you go about the ordinary activities of life.
 
This does not mean you do not seek some gain as you exercise, go to the gym, or do the physical activities  you enjoy for the physical body needs exercise in order to be healthy.  Many physical  activities such as Yoga have energy balancing techniques at their root.
 
Many individuals are now ready for goals (seeking gain) regarding emotional  balancing.  On the spiritual level letting go of gain versus loss concepts does not mean you cannot take a spiritual class, or study with an evolved spiritual teacher if you are guided to do this.  What we are saying is that you are ready to move beyond beliefs that declare certain three dimensional gains as being absolutely necessary and the loss or absence of them as being failure.
 
Ask yourselves;  “Why do I going to the gym?  Why am I on a continual diet?  Why do I look at myself in the mirror and see failure?  Do I believe that every negative emotion is wrong, or that because I don’t have lots of  degrees and formal education, or am not yet a spiritual master  I have  failed?”
 
Never resist anything for resistance simply gives power to whatever is being resisted making  it even more real and firmly entrenched.  Just say; “Oh you again” to  beliefs, concepts, and emotions you know to be false and simply go on with the activities of your day.
 
The  mind is an avenue of awareness,  not the end all of superiority over other living things as you have been taught.  Not everyone contracted to live the life of an intellectual  genius or to manifest in this lifetime their intellectual attainments attained in  previous lives or on other planets.  Some have chosen the experience of being mentally handicapped specifically for their or the caregiver’s  spiritual growth. There really are no accidents.
 
It is not possible to revert from an attained state of consciousness although there are many who try in order to please those around them.   Attempts to continue living  from an outgrown state of consciousness can only fail because there is no longer alignment with that energy regardless of how familiar.  Some pretend for awhile,  but within   are well aware that it is not working.
 
Relax and rest in the realization that everything is proceeding according to plan, governed by the Higher Self and not by continuous striving, struggling, or doing.  Your Higher Self knows what you are ready for and when.   If you read these messages the “train has left the station” and you  no longer need to be ruled  by three dimensional concepts of gain and loss.
 
Every lifetime and every experience has been about remembering,  thus making all experiences gains, and so called losses, nonexistent.

Cease the struggle, and rest in what is.
