Lords of the Seven Rays: Lord Lanto

26 Sep

Lord Lanto

Lord Lanto, great light of ancient China, now serves as one of America’s foremost savants.  The devotion to word of wisdom and the words of knowledge of this quietly-wise sage and fiery-eyed bodhisattva has truly qualified him to initiate the evolutions of earth in both gifts of the Holy Spirit. Lord of the Second Ray, he is an Ascended Master in whose Presence the sublimity of the Mind of God can be touched and known, by portion, as he teaches the path of Americans–Yes!  a Chinese master teaching Americans the ancient way of the universal Christhood that made the golden age of China great, that comes down from Maitreya, the Coming Buddha who has come. Lord Lanto conducts classes at the Royal Teton Retreat, congruent with the Grand Teton in Wyoming, for it is here in this ancient focus of great Light that the paths of all Seven Chohans are taught and the seven rays of the Elohim and Archangels are enshrined.  The Lords of Karma, Gautama Buddha, and all members of the Great White Brotherhood frequent this gathering place of the Ascended Masters and their disciples while also maintaining the specialized functions of their own private retreats.

A master of sages and philosophers, Lord Lanto teaches us the path of attainment through enlightenment, definition, and dominion in the crown chakra. He gained his mastery while studying under Lord Himalaya, Manu of the Fourth Root Race, who retreat of the Blue Lotus is hidden in the mountains that bear his name.

Electing to use the yellow ray to enfold the hearts of all mankind, Lanto dedicated himself to the perfectionment of the evolutions of this planet through the golden flame of Cosmic Christ illumination he bears, charged with his momentum of God-Victory for the youth of the world. We can trace his evolution as a high priest in the temple of the Divine Mother on the lost continent of Lemuria, which occupied a large area of the Pacific Ocean, as well as subsequent embodiments on Atlantis. Lord Lanto was a ruler in China and a contemporary of Confucius.  Following his ascension, he accepted the office of presiding Master of the Council of the Royal Teton and of the retreat itself in order to bring to the Western world the flame of science, technology, the culture of the Mother and reverence for Life which he and Confucius had sponsored in the Far East.

Lord Lanto was and is a master of the power of precipitation–an alchemical process of drawing forth cosmic light and substance from the Universal and coalescing it into physical form (a predetermined matter matrix) by the science of the spoken Word.  Master of the fiery core of excellence at the heart of Wisdom’s Ray, hence devotee par excellence of the Divine Mother’s white fire lilies. Lanto remains the Guru of the gurus not only of the Chinese, who he desires to assist in once again raising up the flame of illumination, but also all souls who share his love for the golden Sunward path of the Buddhas and bodhisattvas under Sanat Kumara.

Thus, before his ascension Lord Lanto determined that the light from his own heart flame should shine forth physically as living proof to his disciples that the threefold flame, as in the past and coming golden ages, is the Word that is made flesh and that it can be thus expanded and intensified by the priority of the adept.

Lanto so adored the Trinity in the tripartite Light of his innermost being that the intense glow of that Divine Spark could actually be seen through his own flesh form emanating a soft golden glow through his chest.

Lords of the Seven Rays: El Morya Divine Love

23 Sep

“For it must always be remembered that as God is One, this God that is One has seen fit in his greater holy wisdom to extend himself forth in a manifestation of the many, and therefore to mankind is given the opportunity to be brought into captivity to Divine Love whereby the love they bear within themselves for the Divine does capture their whole hearts and cause them to welcome with open arms the ministering love and service, the holy wisdom that descends from on high. Thus are men drawn out of the mass sea of miasma and human emotion and raised up to a place where they can clasp to their hearts and minds holy Truth and understand its role in freeing them from the shadow of the present age.”

El Morya holds classes in God-Government and the path of personal Christhood through the soul’s blueprint in the will of God in his etheric retreat over Darjeeling, India.  Called the Temple of Good Will.  We can travel in our etheric bodies by calling to El Morya before we go to bed and ask to attend the classes.  El Morya says the aims of the Brotherhood at Darjeeling whose credo is “I will,” is their desire only to see men free from self-limitation, narrow-mindedness, and ego-centered consciousness of the synthetic self.  And he challenges us to become chelas of the will of God.

“Here at Darjeeling we offer a crash program in chelaship and initiation on the Path for those who are willing to follow implicitly the demands of their own Christ Self and to respond with a flame that leaps and with eyes that sparkle with the kindling fires of soul discernment.  We have received all whose love for the will of God has been greater than the love for the will of the lesser self. The will of God is applied in all levels of human endeavor, for the will of God is the blueprint of every project.  It is the foundation of every task.  It is the skeleton of your body.  It is physical energy.  It is etheric fire.  The will of God is the fiery diamond in your heart. Here in Darjeeling, we are the followers of the path of Christ and the Buddha which are one.  And we follow the byword ‘non-attachment to the fruit of action.’  This means we strive for the excellence of Divine Love in all things and leave the rest to God.”

“Blessed hearts, let us not count worthiness as an accrual of good deeds, for if it be so, then unworthiness  be an accrual of wicked deeds.  This is a mystery, for at a certain level it is so and at a certain level of life evolving life this becomes the measure and mark of the judgement of the Lords of Karma; but to be in the center of good deeds, one must be in in the center of the awareness that God himself is the doer and the deed.  And therefore, one does not make too much, neither of human achievement nor of the little human mistakes, for to do so can cause that insanity which is born of pride and that division in one’s members, the schism in consciousness which comes on the heels of failure.”

“If one is to acknowledge error or ego as supremely real, then there is no hope for salvation.  For the fulcrum of salvation is not good and bad deeds per se, but it is forsaking of error and the erroneous consciousness that produced the human ego in the first place and the realization that it is the soul’s centering in the will of God, that it is the soul’s realignment with that will, that makes all the difference.  It is not that you are right or wrong but that you are non-attached to your rights and to your wrongs.  And with that non-attachment the resolution of your life will be that all that proceeds from you will result in right action, right consciousness, right goals, right mindedness–rightness that is God’s Rightness.  Therefore, shun EVIL not because it is real but shun it because it is unreal and no part of God!”

Lords of the Seven Rays: El Morya

18 Sep

el_morya4tiny

Moyra has served in numerous embodiments as a ruler of men, monarchs and nations, becoming thereby an expert in economics and the affairs of state, in the psychology of power in the human psyche, hence in its outworking in the politics of personal and international relations.  Through the initiations of his individualized path of Christhood, this beloved Master of the Himalayas has acquired a quintessential devotion to the will of God–a virtue for which he is supremely adored and trusted by his chelas and for which he was twice canonized by the Roman Church.  All of this and more has qualified him preeminently to hold the office of Lord of the First Ray.

El Morya as he is called was: Akbar, the greatest of the Mogul emperors, Abraham, the father of the Hebrew nation, Melchior who came with the three wise men, King Arthur, Thomas Becket and Thomas More, and Rajput prince of India.

“The will of God is the flawless diamond, it is the shinning of the Divine Mind,

it is the rushing of the wind of the Spirit, and it is the strength and laughter of real identity.”

-El Morya

From El Morya we learn that the will of God is inherent within life and merely awaits the signal of release from man’s will in order to ray forth the power of dominion to the word of the individual.   El Morya says the following about the will of God:  There is a sovereign link between the mortal will and the Immortal.  In the statement of Jesus, ‘It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom,’ men can be aware of the eternal will as the fullest measure of eternal love.

Release, then your feelings of possessiveness over your own life!  Surrender the mean sense of sin and rebellion, the pitiful will to self-privilege which engenders bondage.  See the will of God as omnipresent and complete, the holy beat of the Sacred Heart throbbing within your own.  Know and understand that surrender is not oblivion but a point of beginning and of greater joy.

Create unto yourself the new sense of the ownership of God’s will!  You have long though of God’s will as a thing apart from yourself.  The will of God is the sole source of man’s freedom.  The will of God is everything.  For it provides the spark that pushes back the darkness of sense consciousness, of ignorance and despair while holding forth the torch of true illumination to the seeking soul, enabling each individual to find himself, lost in the passion of God’s will.

The fiat ‘Not my will but thine be done’ was not intended as a statement of sacrifice but one of heavenly inspired wisdom.  Be ready mentally, spiritually , and emotionally by an act of simple devotion or a feeling of awe to accept God’s will.  Until the will of God becomes acceptable to men, until they can put aside their double-mindedness, they will remain unstable and fluctuating in their aims. The will of God assures man that he will survive, for it is the will of God that those whom he has created should inherit his kingdom–but the rules of the game must be followed, for the law of God is inexorable in its demand for perfection.

Realize that the will of God can best be known by a spiritual experience.  Desire then that experience.  Desire to reach outwardly toward the Godhead in the Great Central Sun Galaxy.

Lords of the seven rays book

The whirling of the mind

must be stilled

The thoughts that arrange

the molecules of the

mirror of consciousness

need the calmness

of a still pool–

That we may be able

to see clearly.

The manifestation of God in Nature are woven in and through the Spirit/Matter cosmos by the Holy Spirit, whose Sons–know as the Lords of the Seven Rays and the Great Lord (Maha Chohan know as the Holy Spirit) their hierarchy–tutor our souls for receptivity midst all-pervasive spiritual graces.  To these Servant-Sons in heaven, graduates of earth’s schoolroom, Jesus introduced us years ago.

The Master Jesus pointed to this teaching on Christ’s Universal Body which he gave to Paul to explain to us that in heaven the same Body which we all share with Lightbearers on earth consists of angels and masterful beings, great spirits akin to our own, ensouling and directing the cosmic forces, all of whom embody some special office and function of the universal activity of the Mind of God.

The Lord showed us his emissaries who teach the godly on earth the path of individual Christhood on the seven rays and the seven chakras (spiritual centers in the body of man)–each ray being a Light-emanation of the Universal Christ concentrating particular gifts and graces and principles of self-awareness in the Logos that can be developed by the disciple through his life’s calling.

He explained with perfect logic that the work of the Great White Brotherhood (ascended beings surround by God’s white light) and all heavenly hosts associated with it, including those whom they sponsor on earth, was and is to nurture the nascent divinity of every child of God while teaching him self-discipline and love for his sacred labor, which love kindles the soul to be in love with her Lord and to desire to glorify the full complement of his Light (Christ consciousness) in all her members.

He showed us that in this cycle of our cosmic history, earth’s evolution transiting from the Piscean to the Aquarian ( which we are now in) ages are scheduled to balance the threefold flame of the heart and to expand the attributes of the Trinity–Power, Wisdom–Love through each of the seven rays as these rays are consciously focused in the seven chakras.

Threefold flame001

This work of the soul–and it is indeed our work, even as we are His handiwork–is the preparation that is necessary prior to receiving the very special spiritual and physical assignment with one’s twin flame–a mission drawn from the higher spheres of their divine plan (casual bodies) which must be fulfilled ere they are allowed to graduate (i.e., ascend) from earth’s schoolroom.

Yes, we can learn, and we would do well to take the opportunity, from the Lords of the Seven Rays, our mentors of the Spirit who lead us on the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake–I AM THAT I AM–towards our soul’s receptivity to the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

In divine order, they are:

1. El Morya, Chief

2. Lord Lanto

3. Paul the Venetian

4. Serapis Bey

5.  Hilarion

6. Lady Master Nada

7. Saint Germain

 

 

 

For the seeker following in the footsteps of these representative of Christ Truth, each step of self-mastery secured on one ray is gain on the other six rays, for the shaft of white light in the center of each ray is the unifier of them all.  This shaft is the Law of the One in manifestation, even as the White fire core of the seven flames and seven spheres corresponding to the seven rays is also their sun center–the unifying Holy Spirit of these Light-emanations of Cosmos itself.

casual body

The Lord of the Ray is therefore one who embodies the consciousness of the Lord–the I AM THAT I AM–who is the Lawgiver of the ray, The Word and Work of the Chohan, i.e., his ‘Path’, are the expressions of the authority he holds in the interpretation of the Law of the ray

Clear Your Subconscious and Increase Abundance

9 Sep

There is no room for God in

him who is full of himself.

–Hasidic saying

Some people diligently practice the keys to abundance and still don’t get the results they want.  They climb just so far and then hit a ceiling.  Why?  Because they haven’t cleared their subconscious and they haven’t invited God to be a part of their plan.  Say you decide to start affirming and believing: “I AM a successful__________________” you fill in the blank.

But if you’ve been telling yourself for twenty years or twenty lifetimes that you’re a failure, your subconscious is going to take some convincing.  It’s going to say, “I don’t believe you.”  Our subconscious is like a recording  machine.  It records every impression we have absorbed throughout our life and our past lives–the good and the bad.  And, to our detriment, that includes the negatives we have heard and believed about ourselves.

Every time you think something negative about yourself, every time someone criticizes or intimidates you, your subconscious records the event.  Sometimes we don’t realize how much we have been influenced by another’s thoughts or words, especially a parent, sibling or authority figure.  These negatives are booby traps that can undermine our abundance.

For instance, all too often we limit ourselves by our current circumstances–our job, our income, our educational level, our IQ–and what we think we are able to accomplish.  We say to ourselves, “My income is thus and such.  I have this much social security.  My job gives me this much pay, so in ten years I can go just so high.”  We have pigeonholed ourselves and encased ourselves in these boxes that we cancel out the abundant sense of the soul.  In the highest dimensions of the spirit, however, our soul knows no boundaries.  And it wants to be liberated from the tyranny of negative subconscious programming.

The subconscious not only records negative impressions but, like a tape player on automatic replay, it plays back the recordings of the past.  It takes hard work to erase these “records.”  We may need the guidance of a trained psychologist who can help us heal the pain of our wounded inner child.  We may also need to reprogram our subconscious with positive messages.  That’s what positive affirmations are all about–affirming the innate beauty and positive potential of the soul.

But whatever steps we take, we can accelerate our healing when we accompany them with spiritual work.  I have had the best results in clearing the subconscious of negative records by using mantras and affirmations to the violet flame.  Ask your Higher Self to direct the violet flame into specific thoughts, actions and words that produced the negative recordings in your subconscious.  Visualize the violet flame literally burning up these records, one by one.

Another key for working with your subconscious is to ask your divine self to take dominion over the four components of the mind:   the subconscious mind, the conscious mind, the unconscious mind and the super-conscious mind.  By doing this we seal our subconscious and unconscious so they do not become tyrants over our soul.  We also empower our divine self to generate positive energies and impulses in the subconscious and unconscious.

What are these four compartments of the mind?  The super-conscious mind is the mind of infinite intelligence within us, the all knowing Mind of God that works through our highest self.  The conscious mind is the reasoning mind. Spiritually speaking, the subconscious mind corresponds to our desires–and that is why it is so influential.  This powerful storehouse of energy will bring to fruition your desires, whatever they are.  When it is polluted the subconscious can do us incalculable harm.  When it is cleared and functioning in a healthy way, the subconscious acts like a resilient trampoline, catapulting our highest aspirations into action.

The unconscious mind is the deepest level of our being and can exercise great power over us, although it is not directly accessible to our awareness.  Freud said the unconscious includes our primordial wishes and impulses as well as memories and drives we are no longer conscious of but which can have dramatic effects on our thoughts and actions.  The unconscious contains the absolutes of Good and Evil.

You can seal the compartments of your mind by directing your I AM Presence to occupy and take dominion over your unconscious and super-conscious minds and directing your Holy Christ Self to occupy and take dominion over your subconscious and conscious minds.  The I AM Presence is that portion of your spiritual self that is the absolute perfection of your divine reality.  It is the personal presence of Spirit that abides with you.  Your Holy Christ Self is the mediator between you and your I AM Presence.  The Holy Christ Self, also know as the Higher Self, is your inner teacher and voice of conscience.

chart of your divine self001

When we place the levels of our mind under the dominion of our I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self, and when we accompany this with the necessary spiritual and psychological work, these dynamic components of our being will produce only good.

Prayer

O Mighty I AM Presence, enter

now, occupy and take dominion over my super-conscious and unconscious minds!

O Holy Christ Self, enter now,

occupy and take dominion over my conscious and subconscious minds!

Once you have offered the prayer (Preferably once a day), you can recite your own creative affirmations for a spiritual and material abundance.  It is a good idea to recite your affirmations for each compartment of the mind, as in the following example.

Affirmations

In the name of my I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self,

I AM perfect abundance in my super-conscious mind!

In the name of my I AM Presence and Holy Christ self,

I AM perfect abundance in my conscious mind!

In the name of my I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self,

I AM perfect abundance in my subconscious mind!

In the name of my I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self,

I AM perfect abundance in my unconscious mind!

When you begin to dig in and work on your subconscious, don’t be surprised or upset if you see negatives popping our more intensely and more frequently.  The more faith, determination and joy you have, the more spiritual light you will generate.  This brighter light will naturally expose the blocks to your spiritual progress–the maladies of the spirit that must go.

Forgive Yourself and Create Abundance

6 Sep

Self-forgiveness is a great birth.

…It is the state of being that arises

from our willingness to accept, with-

out judgement, all of who are, our

seeming shortcomings as well as

our innate glory.

-Robin Casarjian

I have met people now and then who say, “I just can’t forgive myself for this terrible thing I did.”   They’ll even say, “I know God has forgiven me.  But I just can’t forgive myself.”  If you feel you have done something unforgivable or you have misused another’s funds or spent fund unwisely, please don’t hesitate to turn to God for forgiveness and be willing to set things right.

When we cannot ask for forgiveness or receive it, in reality that means we are too proud to accept a gift from God.  We want to do it all on our own, But, in fact, we all need God.

Perhaps you acted selfishly or out of a desire for material things that you really didn’t need.  It doesn’t matter.  Don’t walk around with a sense of guilt, thinking “I am in debt. Woe is me because I have bought these things that I don’t need.  I’ve invested unwisely. I’ve wasted money God gave me.  Now look at the mess I’ve made of my life.”  Whatever mess you may have made of your finances, accept God’s forgiveness, affirm the worthiness of God, and affirm yourself as the mirror image of God.

Affirmation:

In the name of my I AM Presence,

I claim the worthiness of God, and

myself as the mirror image of God!

Remember, you are made in the image and likeness of God.  Your soul is meant to be a giant mirror of God.   Keep the mirror polished.  Look in the mirror and see God’s face smiling at you—and return that smile.  Every time something threatens to cloud the mirror–you feel a sense of injustice, you become annoyed, something unexpectedly pops up out of your unconscious–keep on polishing the mirror so you can be a more perfect reflection of God.

Speak to any force, within or without, that nags at you and tries to put you down and say:  “My God has forgiven me.  I accept that forgiveness and I forgive myself.  I am so grateful God has given me another opportunity that I will forgive all the wrongs that anyone has ever done to me or will ever do to me!”

Affirmation:

I AM forgiveness acting here,

Casting out all doubt and fear,

Setting men forever free

With wings of cosmic victory.

I AM calling in full power

For forgiveness every hour;

To all life in every place

I flood forth forgiving grace. (3x)

Creative Abundance

4 Sep

creative abundance001

Abundance is more than money.  Abundance is the flow of energy that comes to us from the universal source of life as both spiritual and material prosperity.  Abundance is love and Wisdom, talents and virtues, money and material goods–whatever we need to fulfill our life’s purpose.  Energy should be flowing freely to us and through us to materialize abundance.  If we are not experiencing that flow of abundance, we have to ask ourselves why.

What is it within us or around us that is blocking prosperity?  What is blocking the Flow of God’s energy to us?  Saint Germain, who is an expert in the spiritual and physical transformation known as alchemy, writes:  “How long will you spend your energy struggling to eke out a bare existence from nature’s cupboard, which to some seem bare indeed, when all your needs can be met by mastering the cosmic laws that Jesus and other great teachers have demonstrated by their own love?..With you–as with God–all things are possible.”

 

Be Grateful For Everything that Happens to You

If the only prayer you say in your 

whole life is “thank you,” that would suffice.

-Meister Eckhart

There is an inherent law of mind

that we increase whatever we praise.

The whole of creation responds to praise and it glad.

-Charles Fillmore

Praise God for the joy and beauty of his creation–not the least of which is the beauty of your own soul. Continually thank God for what you are and what you have and you will see how your abundance will increase.

Affirmations:

Let God be magnified! (Ps.70:40)

Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (Ps. 35:27)

Be grateful to God for everything that happens to you.  Everything–the negatives, the positives, the karma, the calamities–because they are teachers, they are lessons.  And if things aren’t going right, praise God for letting them go wrong to remind you that there is some adjustment you have to make in order to get on with your spiritual progress.

We are all on the path of initiation. Earth is a schoolroom, and we are intended to graduate from that schoolroom.  The lessons we learn along life’s way are what propel us from one grade to the next. Yet isn’t it true that we have all faced situations in life where we couldn’t see a single reason why we should praise God?  It is important to realize that anything coming at you–whether it’s Mars or a Mack truck, whether it’s your mother-in-law or your manager–is energy coming your way.  Bless the messenger who delivers that bundle of energy and then take the energy out of the seemingly negative matrix.  Reclaim it and transmute it into something positive.

Don’t wait until you have your full and final victory over life’s challenges to be happy, to rejoice, to give praise and blessings to life.  praising God and being grateful every day is a key to the victory of your soul.

Affirmations:

Lord, I do give thee thanks for the

abundance that is mine.

In the name I AM THAT I AM,

I AM expanding this day all that I have

that is of God–through love, through

praise, through thanksgiving!

Praise God in everyone you meet.  Try and give everyone you meet a positive spin.  Give yourself the assignment to find something wonderful about every person you meet–then tell it to them.  That something may be just what they need to lift them out of the doldrums or to dispel the sense that there is nothing really special about them.  There is something special about everyone, and you can help them see what it is.

“This day, O Lord I will give a positive spin to everyone you send me.”  When you tell that to God, you’re going to have the world beating a path to your doorway, because there are so many people who need that positive spin.  I love all of you who read and contribute to my blog.  You are the light!

A Prisoner of Love

2 Sep

What determines how much karma you

balance in this life?…It is how much love

you inject into what you are doing.

-Saint Germain

Sometimes the force of attraction between two people is irresistible.  At first, there is no one in the world we would rather be with.  The love is there, the thrill of the new relationship is there, and sooner or later we may even decide to marry. We all know the expression “the honeymoon is over.”  That means our karma has hit.  Now the work of the heart must begin.

But why were we so attracted to each other in the first place?  Although we may have much karma to balance with our husband or wife, the initial impact was exhilarating because at the subconscious level we were elated that we had found the person with whom we could balance that karma.  When the honeymoon is over, what keeps us going and giving is our soul knowing that we must get through our karmic obligations before we can move on to the next spiral of life and the projects closest to our heart.  We sense that the faster we submit to the law of our karma–which is the law of love–the faster we and our partner will both be liberated from that karma.

Sometimes when the karma is resolved, the relationship actually dissolves.  There is nothing remaining to hold it together, and people move on because they are called to work on new assignments. Elizabeth Clare Prophet says, “I have found that God often gives us the gift of intense love in the face of intense karma for the healing of old wounds.”   The capacity to love and release of love is something that seems to happen without our consciously willing it.  We feel like the prisoner of this love. Our rational mind may be telling us we should not be loving this person, but the heart loves on.

Elizabeth Clare Prophet has studied this phenomenon in herself, because we really have nowhere else to go but to the laboratory of our own being to learn the lessons of life.  She say, “without my will at all, my heart would become on fire with love for certain people.  I did not create this love. I didn’t start the fire.  God put it in my heart.”

If you roll back the years and think about your high school days, you can recognize when God had placed that kind of love in your heart for someone else.  Just seeing that person would create within you a heart full of love.  You may not have started the love.  The love was there and you can observe it, and then become its prisoner.  In cases like these our karma, seeking resolution, brings us together, and our Higher Self sheds immense love and forgiveness to help us resolve our karma.

It’s as if we are drenching the other person in love.  When enough love has flowed to balance the karma, all of sudden the faucet turns off and we no longer have this intense and compelling feeling of love.  It’s almost unbelievable in contrast to the way we felt before.  I’ve seen this in my own life.  I poured out the love, the karma was balanced, and I walked on.  You never know when the gift you are giving is paying the last farthing of some karma that will liberate you to move on to a higher calling.

We may never know exactly what the past-life episode was that created our karmic debt, but we can usually figure out what we must do now to balance it.  Ask yourself:  What quality or virtue am I being asked to master?  I believe it’s important to work, and work hard, at a marriage.  We are in our relationship for a reason.  It’s tempting to walk away from unpleasant situations, to treat them half-heartedly, or to just bide our time until “the real thing comes along.”  That’s a good way to prolong the resolution of karma–and to make more of it.  If we walk out on our spiritual duty, we will only have to face the same individuals and the same karmic elements again.

When a situation is staring you in the face, look at it as an optimal opportunity, for you never know how long you will have to wait for that opportunity to come around again.  You can choose to melt down the hardness of heart and the karma with the fervent heat of love, or you can choose to part with animosity, which only delays the day of reckoning.  That doesn’t mean you have to remain in a karmic relationship forever.  But you may have to work hard to find the reason for the relationship and then make certain that you balance the karma so that both of you leave the relationship with the feeling of resolution.

How will you know when you have settled the old accounts? When they are settled, you will sense a resolution and an inner peace.  There will no longer be the same intensity binding you together.  In situations like these, we have to go into our heart and, through deep prayer, meditation and soul searching, attune with God to get the right answer.
