Message from Maitreya:
The most important point to be aware of when one is on the spiritual path is the way of the subconscious mind and the Self which resides there, work. How it can play games with yourself and those around you. So much damage can be done in the name of these games. You can ask “Master what do you mean by that?”, well I will tell you.
Consciously you may feel that everything is fine in your world, however in the subconscious mind much mischief is being played out. If one has insecurities of any kind, one can create all sorts of games which will affect those around you. From making them jealous, to creating anger and frustration. The Self does not like moving from the comfort zone, yet it creates so many situations where it self sabotages itself, and leaves the soul bereft at what has happened, when the damage has been done.
I will give you an example of a student who desperately loved a man. She loved him so much that her Self became frantic over the attention he was giving to his children. Her Self wanted him all to herself, and although she tried very hard to communicate and find peace with them, her Self finally created a situation where the man could no longer cope. He informed her that he no longer wished to be with her. To begin with, she thought this was in order, but, as time passed she realized that she missed him terribly, Her Higher Self started to show her what she had done. She was devastated. However, the damage was done and she was left with nobody. The man moved on, found another partner, found happiness, but she could not move on, all she could think about was what she had once had and what she had lost. This was a case where the Self well and truly self sabotaged her.
Humanity does it all of the time. It does not think before it speaks. It creates situations which can cause pain and suffering to others, all in the name of playing games. Playing games to tease another, or to create an emotional ploy. Either way, it is the Self that does this because the Higher Self would never do that.
The emotional body is something that all humanity have. It is a very sensitive instrument and in many people it is out of control. The Self uses this in so many ways. It sabotages and plays games. However, when this stops and the Higher Self moves in, without game playing, emotional blackmail and with complete honesty and truth, only then can life be lived for the Higher Good. Everything else is an illusion.
Before you speak, think of your words, think of how your words may upset others, yes, one is supposed to have control and not get upset, but even so, on the Earth plane one is exposed to all of the feelings of humanity. Even with control of the emotional body, it can be painful to others when games are played emotionally. If you only knew how sometimes your words can cut and cause hurt, you would think twice about what you say and how you say it, for sometimes it is not WHAT is said, but HOW it is said.
The Higher Self only has the highest regard and respect for life. Know this and think in the future before you speak and hurt another.
