Disciple : Master, how does one overcome pain and suffering in life?
Master : (Without hesitation) By tackling the challenges head-on.
Disciple : Could you please elaborate? You seem so peaceful all the time… I wish to learn that.
Master : Dear one, please understand that my life was not devoid of sadness and frustration. Like most people, I have had my fair share of career and relationship failures. It was during those periods that I realized I needed to educate myself more about life. As such, I started embracing the teachings of wise people from the past and present.
Disciple : So, were you married before?
Master : Yes but it ended with a separation.
Disciple : You must have been devastated …
Master : Sad, I was … but even that episode taught me so much … You see, we tried so hard to salvage our relationship … But in the end, I realized that we were just trying to force things to happen … Initially, arguments happened because we wanted the other to compromise first … Then when we tried suppressing our own feelings by succumbing to the other’s wishes , we became depressed.
Disciple : That’s why you sought divorce?
Master : I call it separation … I don’t hate her now because I realized she was just a reflection of the things I needed to work on myself. When my ego was at the forefront, I argued to insist that she should change instead of me. Anger was consuming me all the time. All there was left was bitterness in my heart. When I tried the opposite approach, I compromised so much of who I am, that I felt trapped as a slave to that relationship.
Disciple : So what happened afterwards?
Master : In the end, we had a heart-to-heart talk and came to the understanding that we need not sacrifice our identity to the extent of depriving our happiness. We understood we were unique in our way. By separation, we were gifting the other freedom to express without harboring bitterness towards each other. It was liberating. But please do not misunderstand that all marriages should end that way. In my observation, every relationship including business relationships taught me more about life. Always, there is something to learn.
Disciple : Sorry, I really didn’t know you had such challenges.
Master : You need not be sorry … By the way, you see yourself as a disciple but yet I cognize you as your own Master.
Disciple : But how can I see myself as such when there is so much I’m still learning from you?
Master : Dear one, Mastery of self… as with life, is not a destination but a journey. A true Master is one who applies what he has learnt diligently and also understands … that there is more to learn. Growth is what a Master seeks… not stagnation. And challenges are the seeds for such growth.
Disciple : That’s very enlightening… But what if the challenge is like a heavy downpour?
Master : Should that be the case, then open your umbrella of courage and perseverance. Also by remembering that nothing is permanent, comfort yourself in knowing that it too shall come to pass.
Disciple : Oh my…
Master : And at the end of each challenging period , comes the joy of knowing how far one has progressed, yes?
Disciple : I suppose so!
Master : Excellent… you have now understood the true reward of Life… the realization of Mastery within!

What happens in the Afterlife? Of course , majority of us would have to wait for our time of passing over before we can really say what happens. However, if we have been extremely curious and resourceful, we would have found out that there are people who literally have died for a short moment but came back to life, with enlightening descriptions of the after death experience . Such a case is termed as NDE or Near Death Experience. Often NDE has a major impact on the survivor as now the person views life from a wider perspective, having had a personal glimpse of the Other Side.
I have personally read many NDE cases over the years and I find the revelations mind-expanding and very liberating. It is as though my ego is cast aside to make way for the ultimate truth of life. One of the more interesting NDEs that I have come across involves a lady by the name Reinee Pasarow of California, USA.
In May 1966, 16-year-old Reinee Pasarow became unconscious following an allergic food reaction and then had an NDE. The following are excerpts of her testimony :
“I only became aware when I heard the very loud sound of the fire engines arriving. I heard my best friend from elementary school calling to me. She was calling, ‘Reinee, don’t die, don’t die Reinee.’
I heard this and it seemed as if it was in a foreign language to me. I finally computed the meaning of this and realized that my life was in danger. I had an obligation to fight for my life because of my mother and my friend, because she had such terror in her voice that it cut through to my heart.
I tried to fight for my life, but the battle became overwhelming. At this point I just surrendered myself, my soul, to the power that brings us all into existence and that gives us all life. I knew that this was the source of all life and the way of all things. I surrendered to that and I entered a state of peacefulness.
Then just like that (clapping her hands), I became a ball of light or energy in the midst of this crowd that was circling a body. I became massively aware, unlike any awareness I had had during physical existence. I was not really aware of myself. I was aware of everyone around me. I was aware of my mother and my neighbors, and my friends and the firemen and what they were thinking and what they were feeling and what they were hoping and what they were praying. This was such a pummeling input of emotion and information that I was all at once overwhelmed and confused, and rather disoriented.
I followed their attention to something on the sidewalk and I looked at a body on the sidewalk… And then I became aware that the thing on the sidewalk, that thing that suddenly became a piece of meat to me, was what I had identified as myself before, but had no connection with it other than that I had been with it for a very long time. But it had nothing to do with me because suddenly, I was more of a person than I had ever been before. I was more conscious than I could ever be. I was free of the limitations of being a physical being.
…And with that (taps the table) again like this, I was bumped way up, up above some light wires. From that point I could watch everyone beneath me, but I was not as closely associated with them, [but] I was completely feeling everything they were feeling.
I watched my mother and a boy come out of the house and up the hill which I could not have seen physically. I was very sad for my mother. I was very sad for my friend who kept calling me…So my concern was for them. I spent my time observing them and calling to them – calling to them that everything was as it should be, that everything was fine, that I was free, that it was wonderful…. I tried to communicate this to them over and over again and I realized that I had no mouth. I had no body. They could not hear what I was saying to them. I would have to leave them in the same hands I had left myself in the process of dying. With that I turned away, just sort of like a ball, just turned away.
My attention turned away lovingly but knowing that there was nothing I could do. I turned away from them and began to pull up. I became aware, as if I were a camera on a space ship or something, of our place – my particular little street and then my particular little town. I kept pulling up and up and up to a point where I could observe the whole Earth. This was wonderful!
The Earth was alive and the Earth was singing. It was singing a single song and in that song everyone had a voice. Every human being had a very important note to add to this precious song of the Earth. It was a song of love and every living being had something to add to the song of Earth. Every one of these essences was very much connected. I was seeing it not like we see normally. I was seeing it both from a macroscopic – from the point of view of the spaceship – and from a microscopic vantage point. Microscopic in that I could see an amoeba in the ocean was connected to the song of the heart of all humanity; and that this world was responding to the song in our hearts in a miraculous, unified, and beautiful way. I too began too sing. I was so overcome with joy. It wasn’t a song obviously with the mouth. I had no mouth. I had no body. I simply was. I became a part of that song and very full of joy that I could have something to contribute to this sacred beauty of our Earth and of all people.
I became very aware that we as people have a unique influence on the world even if we are not actively doing something. We influence this planet by our state of being. We influence this planet very positively if we are filled with love and respect for others or negatively if our hearts are negative.”
After being out of her body for some time Reinee eventually saw a Being of Light which then told her “It is not time” . That prevented her from moving further forward. She then found herself returning to the physical world.
Reinee’s microscopic and macroscopic view of life from the Other Side is yet another testimony of the ‘We are One’ concept. Today’s scientists even use terms like ‘entanglement’ that connote this theme of how everyone and everything is connected. I truly agree with what many spiritual people have opined – that the only separation that exists between humans is …. one that they create in their mind.

“I feel that the best companies are started not because the founder wanted a company but because the founder wanted to change the world….
Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission – to make the world more open and connected.”
The aforementioned quotes are from the creator of the hugely popular Facebook, Mr. Mark Zuckerberg. Interestingly, many years ago, Mr. Lee Carroll a sound engineer started to receive messages from the Divine and began channeling them to the public. One of his earlier messages was that there will come a time when people around the world would be able to communicate with each other very easily and once that happens, things would change for the better as people would be more empowered. The following is an excerpt of Mr. Lee’s channeling (of Kryon) in Year 2010 :-
“Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they’re doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It’s here to stay. It’s part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.
I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when “everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy.” For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy – something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?”
The said messages are very consistent with the teachings of many spiritual people today. The New Earth that such people (including author Eckhart Tolle) talk about is regarding a shift in human consciousness to World Unity. As people have better communication tools and greater access to information, the old paradigm of dictatorships and separation will fade even faster. And on that note, I express gratitude to all the technopreneurs for creating such tools for the betterment of society. Also, I hope the end users of such technology will use it to spread Love & Truth and not Fear & Lies.

Year 2017, a new year … a new cycle of times. In numerology, this is especially the case as Year 2017 is considered the Year of 1 (i.e. 2+0+1+7=10=1+0=1). The number 1 in this study, denotes new beginnings. This is in contrast to last year, where it was considered the Year of 9 or the year of completion. Interestingly, last year’s US presidential election which created much publicity worldwide was the 45th election – that also gave a 9 reading (45=4+5=9). Also much of what was posted in my blogpost called ‘Predictions For Year 2016’ came into fruition.
Indeed 2016 was a pretty dramatic year. Brexit and the US presidential election were two major events that had a great impact globally. At the very beginning of that year, I uttered to my circle of friends that there is a tendency many souls may choose 2016 to be their last year on Earth as completion was the theme of the 9 energy. True enough, that year saw the demise of many people including some very famous ones.
After noticing the accuracy of the Tarot Card reading for 2016 that I obtained from Archangel Michael, I decided to work with another Archangel to do likewise for 2017. For this year, I sought Archangel Metatron’s help. I have worked with this angelic being several times before in my healing practice. Clairvoyants often see that angel having an orange aura or in the form of a geometric shape (often known as Metatron’s cube). The Tarot Card that was chosen was ‘Seven Of Water’ and it denoted that humanity may be faced with complex decisions. Choosing options may be difficult but the advice was to seek counsel if needed. There seems to be the need to focus and avoid unrealistic expectations. Nevertheless, it represents a time to stop procrastinating and get busy. To me , this message seems to be in line with the numerology reading of 1 for this year. Whereas last year was about closure, this year is about charting a new course. Coincidentally, 2017 is the year Donald Trump starts to perform as the US President.
Last but not least, may everyone have a good start to this New Year.
All the best!!!

“We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless.
The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.
We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.”
– the late compassionate Mother Teresa.

“May Peace prevail where it’s needed.
May Love propagate where it’s lacking.
May Joy thrive where sadness is rooted.
May everyone be blessed.”
In conjunction with Full Moon day, the aforesaid prayers are sent out to All on Earth. A Full Moon day is recognized as a high energy day. In spiritual circles, the Moon is known as the amplifier of energy.

“Hearing the Voice of Spirit or Hearing the Voice of God…. of course, is a metaphor. People who tune in spiritually don’t normally hear a voice from the sky. Hearing the voice of Spirit is a metaphor for being tuned in to the intuition from your own Higher-Self. The Higher-Self is that spiritual part of you that connects with your eternal soul. It is what most seekers strive to connect with and it gives you help with your own life, and in that, helps the planet.
The reason this intuition is so hard to hear or discern is that there’s a low, constant drone, you might say, which is a metaphor for a noise or rumble that seems to obfuscate, or cover up, the message. It’s like trying to hear something while there is a constant noise. It’s the best metaphor we can give of how massive darkness can cover light. But the noise level of this drone is starting to decrease. So, what happens when you get a better, clearer message? You change; the world changes; those around you also hear better and even those who don’t want to hear it will still know there is something different happening.
Again, this hearing is a metaphor. The meaning is really discerning the intuition of what has integrity or not, what’s going on with your own life, and the ability to enhance the feeling of coming potentials. All of that is hearing the voice of Spirit. It’s the Human Being starting to “grow up” and have a higher consciousness.”
