What does one have to do to be spiritual?

Message from Maitreya:

Some thoughts I would like to comment on.

Something that was asked of me recently, and that was the question “What does one have to do to be spiritual”?

To be spiritual means to be at peace with oneself. It also means being totally honest with yourselves and others. It means being happy, happy with life and happy with yourself. If you have any dis-ease in your life, then that dis-ease will affect your life in some way. Life was meant to be joyous. Yet so many of the souls on the Earth plane walk around so miserable and unhappy. They are in darkness for they do not see the light, society has programmed them to believe that is all there is. Yet that is not all there is, there is far more. Many souls however, do not see anything, they are caught up in the game of life which to them is miserable and unhappy.

The first step to becoming spiritual is to speak your truth to others even when one knows they will not like what you have to say. The second step is to look at your life and if it is not happy, to change it without fear. The third step is to have total faith that we in spirit will be there to lead and guide you once you let go of the fear. The fourth step is to let go of all old programming, everything that has been put there by others over the years and past lives and replace it with new thought. Thought that comes from the Higher Self. Finally one needs to be happy. Happiness is the key to becoming spiritual. One cannot be spiritual and unhappy, they do not go together.

It is at this point that the Self kicks in and starts to fight, dragging you back into the old comfort zone, and you in fear, go back with it.

It is not easy opening yourself to the spiritual and allowing spirit to lead and guide you. The Self has had its own way for so long, then along comes spirit and through intuition tries to lead you and guide you to the new beginning. However, with perseverance, one can win the battle. Your purpose on this Earth plane is to conquer the Self. Positive thoughts create happiness. Slowly but surely you can move forward out of the darkness. It does take time sometimes because the Self puts up such a struggle, but at the end of the fight, is a peace and happiness that cannot be described. That is the prize.

Life is filled with stories of souls who have gone through battles and survived. These souls are a beacon of light to those in darkness for they say to them, “I conquered the negative, I won through, often under very difficult circumstances”. I did it.

It cannot be done except by taking one moment at a time. If you can do that you are truly on your way.

The more people that can pray, more the light

Message from Maitreya:

It is so good to be able to communicate with you again. The Earth plane is again going through conflict, darkness whirls all around, and it is difficult to try to lift the spirits and to be cheerful and optimistic with all this happening. Yet, it is at times like this that one needs try and remain up lifted. There are many who say, “Will this madness, this fighting, this conflict ever end”? For it seems that it is constant. This is brother against brother, yet they do not see this, for they see their brother as their enemy. Until more light is brought to the Earth plane, the darkness will prevail. Each one of you is a light beacon in the darkness. If you have a connection to spirit, if you feel spiritual, work in the spiritual, or read about the spiritual, then your thoughts can help bring a change to the darkness. Think of one singer, and the power that the voice of the singer has? It has quite a great deal of power, but then think of a choir of many, say fifty people and think of the effect those fifty voices have, and you will see the power of numbers. The more people that can remain positive, non judgmental, detached, the more light can be brought to the dark areas of the world.

It is our purpose with your help, yes, you souls who are committed to assisting spirit, to bring in a new energy to the Earth plane. This new energy can be manifested by the power of many. Many souls all thinking of peace, non-conflict and of a different Earth plane, one without war or trouble. This may take some time to manifest, but once it is put into motion, once enough souls think along those themes, then it CAN change the energy of the Earth plane. Verbal requests can also be of great benefit, asking of your God, whatever you believe that force to be, can also be of benefit, because the power of the spoken word is mighty indeed.

It is hard to remain positive when so many issues are causing strife and trouble around the world. The more people that can verbalize and pray, the more light that can enter and make change. Each one of you is a beacon of light, switch on the lamp and make this Earth plane a brighter place. Not only will you feel up lifted yourself, but you will also uplift the world. It seems a huge task, yet it is not. Switch on the light!

Maitreya.
