This is one of my favorite quotes from William LePar’s spiritual source, The Council. It causes me to think more about my life and hopefully do a better job with my words and actions, especially when I am under stress. These days we are all under stress. The Council says that we are all here for a reason and that is to grow spiritually. These days offer us a very unusual situation in which to grow but this too will pass.
The Council: You must remember that all of your lives, every moment of your life, every second of your life, is for a purpose. Every point of contact that you have with other individuals, whether they be your chargelings or children or your mates or your relatives or friends or what have you, every point of contact with those individuals is for a purpose. Now, it does not mean that every point of contact, every word exchanged, has an immense effect on your life or a very important effect on your life. No, this is not the situation, but each exchange, each meeting, each relationship, builds towards something; it is there for a purpose, and that is to correct whatever karmic situation may exist, either with yourselves or with the other individual.
You come together to serve each other, to help each other ahead. Also, you come together to help each other in a positive way to enjoy the good karma that you have created together in other times or even in that particular lifetime, so you do not have contact with others just because you have nothing else to do. Your conversations this day, this evening in this room with each other, just did not happen. You are too busy to waste time on something for nothing. Although in your conscious mind, many of you dally your time away or at least you think you do. Are you really? Are you really dallying your time away? Are you here because you have nothing better to do? Or are you here because you must be here? Did you do what you did this morning because you had nothing better to do? Or was your morning's activities because they had to be? Well, we will give you the direct answer to that, and, that is, your day was because it had to be. Now, does that mean that we are saying you have been boxed in by some force beyond you into doing things? Have you been predetermined into this or into that? No, no, no, no, no. Everything that happens, happens with your consent, at one level or another. No one has predetermined you to anything; in fact, you have not even predetermined yourself to anything. You may have made some spiritual contracts with individuals to complete something or to experience something in a lifetime, but you do not even have to keep those, so you are not predetermined or predestined in any way, shape, or form. No predestination. Not even God, the Almighty Creator, has predestined anything for you. He has bounced you on His knee and has said, "Dear child, what is it you want to do?" and then has let you go your way and do it. Oh, it is true, He will tap you on the shoulder and either say, "No, no," or "Yes, yes," but ultimately it is your choice to say, "All right, I will listen," or "Sorry old man, I know better." And how many times have all of you done that very thing? And, in fact, we will say to you, how many times, when we were in your situation, we did that very thing? We can tell you right from the very bottoms of our heart, if we had a physical heart, that we had done it many times. If we had been wiser, it would not have taken us so long to get to the point that we are now, but that is the process of learning.
