SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

There is a bit of malware around, that has been installed by ‘you know whos’ [negative astral beings], and it has to do with not using the name of the person that you intend to visualize making love to, when you are having a daydream, while you are having the daydream. Rather, you substitute the name of someone else.

What this set of malware does is, it ties you to the person that you are talking about, rather than the person that you want to feel amorous towards. So a glom occurs, that causes crossed wires in love affairs, and so forth.

And so, you are destined to be destroyed in your desire for the one that you love, if you fall for this malware, for whatever reason. And some of the reasons that people do fall for it are …

  • Shyness. They are shy, and they do not want to say the name of the person that they really love. So they offer a ruse that leads people to think that it is someone else.
  • Guilt. Or, there is a reason why they cannot say the name of the person involved. Maybe that person is married to someone else, for instance. And they do not want anybody to find out.
  • Guile. Or, suppose they are living a celibate lifestyle, as a monk or nun, and they do not want anybody to know that they are thinking of making love to a person that is also a celibate nun or monk. That is another reason.
  • Black Magic Power. Or, suppose they are black magickers, and they feel that power is lost when they say the name of someone. And so, they want to preserve the black magic ability of the person that they love.

Those are only a few of the reasons, but I am here to tell you: Do not fall for that malware. It will complicate your life, and you will wind up in the Purgatory worlds, for sure. Even in this lifetime.

So the moral is: When you love someone, shout it to the world! Let everyone know the name of the person that you love.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

    • “For All My Crimes I Crave Forgiveness,” A Prayer Channeled by Alice B. Clagett, Soundtrack with Piano and Words

Dear Ones,

Here is a new prayer I’ve been using in the last few days, and the results I’ve had with it so far. This is a prayer I heard on the astral plane, that a prisoner condemned to death practiced in the days and weeks before his execution. He continued to recite it as he faced the death decreed by the law of his land, and faltered only for one moment as he segued from physical form, into the afterlife in astral form. I feel prepared well for his passing, and died well. I am proud to have been there, on the astral plane, to honor his passing.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Here’s something I heard on the astral plane last night, and I’ve been using it ever since, with great joy. I like it a lot; it has a lot of pizzazz to it. And it goes like this:

For all my crimes, I crave forgiveness. 

I’ve tried this on the astral plane, and I have to say, people perk up, in the local fast food restaurants, when I use this. They perk up, and either they’re very for it, or else they think that I’m the law, and I’m after them. [laughs] So you might want to pick and choose where you use it.

It works out pretty well in churches, I find … in sacred places …

For all my crimes, I crave forgiveness.

In churches and sacred places, people sometimes say, on the astral plane: Wow! I really like that one! I’ll try it too!

So, there’s that. See what you think of it. If it appeals to you, like it did to me … It grabbed me … Gosh! Who knows what crimes have been committed, in what manifold realities, over all the incarnation! Who knows? No one but God knows. We might as well do the whole route at once, and cover any bases that we don’t even know about.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This video is about first- and second-tier karma. A Summary follows the video; the information in green font is not in the video.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Here is another example of first- and second-tier karma …

An Instance of Second-Tier Pass-Down to Do with a Lecture

Let’s say there is a person who is very spiritually advanced, and gives a lecture on how you can depose a government. And they give this lecture to a small group of people.

The person that gives the lecture, technically, has not done anything wrong … They are just presenting an academic argument, right? But the second tier of people, if they are speaking in the economic interests of people who have less than everyone else, may act out a scenario that results in great loss of life and limb, and great suffering, and greatly increased Soul wounding for everyone involved.

So technically, the first person has no legal hold upon them, but the people that they speak to, and pass on their malware and malspeak to … which in this case has to do with consequentialism and that great heresy of Auschwitz … those people take on all the karma that is legally sanctionable and actionable.

And this is how the duality play is. Those with great spiritual insight tend to influence the minds of others so that they then carry out karmically things that are legally binding on them, and all the people that they associate with.

So therefore, it is impingent upon those who are spiritual leaders to do their clearing first. To take care of their clearing, so that the tiny specks and distortions in density of their bodies of light are completely cleared and cease to influence the masses of people to acting out during this transition to New Life on New Earth.

Karmic Restitution and Return to the Path of Dharma

We Ascensioneers are far from perfect, although we do our best to be Lightbearers, pathfinders, and wayshowers for humankind. Along with everyone else on Earth, we are clearing. The incomplete state of our clearing makes it very important for us to examine our actions daily, and determine if some small act may be needed to set ourselves back from an instance of karmic debt, on to the path of dharma, the path of righteousness.

In this hypothetical case of a lecture with potentially unfortunate consequences, one might introspect at the end of the day, and determine that such an act would be needed. Then one might determine the course of action. 

Personal Alchemy and Co-Creation of New Life on New Earth. One such act of karmic restitution might be simply to sit in meditation, with a peaceful heart, and offer that emotion of peacefulness to the astral airs. Much can be said in favor of such a simple act of transforming the astral airs from restlessness and discontentedness to feelings of peace, harmony, and world unity. This is the process termed by Peggy Black, that great Ascension Soul, as personal alchemy and co-creation of New Life on New Earth.

On Using the Mass Media for Humanitarian Outreach. Another simple act might be to provide … to immediately provide, through the local newspaper, for instance … a balm to the hearts of those who have been unintentionally incited to restlessness. For instance, if their discontent stems from inability to purchase a home, and loss of hope that they may ever own land in the current overpriced real estate market,

  • For instance, the daily news might carry an announcement about government programs such as HUD and Section 8 housing that allow people with meager means to own homes.
  • The article might also describe ‘lease to own’ agreements with private parties that rent homes, and the possibility of buying homes from private parties by just assuming a mortgage with no down payment. 
  • The article might further mention affordable local housing markets, as, for example, are referenced in the following … Link: “The 10 Most Affordable Housing Markets in California,” by Andrew Khouri, Los Angeles Times, 25 July 2013 … http://articles.latimes.com/2013/jul/25/business/la-fi-mo-affordable-southland-zip-20130725 … According to Mr. Khouri, in 2013, affordable homes were available in Barstow, Joshua Tree, Blythe, Twentynine Palms, Sugarloaf, Yucca Valley, San Bernardino, and Hemet. At that time these markets were valued from a low-end median of $60,000 in Barstow to $115,000 in San Bernardino, at the high end.
  • There are also affordable places to retire in California, such as Redding, Eureka, Rio Vista, Palm Springs, Oceanside, Chico, Riverside, and Grass Valley. The article Link: “Affordable Places to Retire in California” by Laurie Jo Miller Farr … http://seniors.lovetoknow.com/Affordable_Places_to_Retire_in_California … discusses this.

Attainable Home Ownership and Homesteading in the United States. People are feeling unhappy with home ownership in my own city of Los Angeles right now:

  • Both because the entry-level price is so steep,
  • And because, for those who now own homes, the price of utilities has seen a catastrophic rise last year, which will result in many who currently own homes losing them.

I notice it may be possible to get free or inexpensive land in other parts of the United States, for homesteading and raising crops and cattle. Although there is no longer a Federal homesteading program, I have read that free land may be available in Alaska, Iowa, Kansas (Lincoln, Marquette, Mankato, Osbourne, and Plainville), Michegan, Minnesota (New Richland) and Nebraska (Curtis and Elwood).  It might be good to get this information out to the mass media as well. 

Other Instances of Karmic Pass-Down and Second-Tier Karma

Hiring a Thug to Do Something Illegal for You. Here is a case of karmic pass-down and second-tier karma that is well known in literature, and no doubt in law enforcement all over the world. That has to do with hiring people to perform illegal acts for us. When we do that, no matter what the illegal act.

Legal Sanctions for the Second-Tier Person. Let’s say that a man of wealth and privilege hires someone to beat up and intimidate someone else, for instance. The thug that does the beating up has a pretty high risk of getting caught eventually, and of being punished by the law.

Legal Sanctions for the First-Tier Person. But the other person, the person who hires him, is much less likely to receive those kinds of legal sanctions, and if he does, they will probably not be that severe. The same is true of hiring people for murder, and so forth.

The Karmic Debt Owed by First-Tier Persons

Happens kind of frequently, I guess. But here is the thing that everybody overlooks: The karma, for the person that starts the ball rolling, is at least as great as that for the person that carries out the action. They are responsible (through financial leverage) for this other Soul’s action. So that is something, by way of karma, to consider.

Are the Astral Stories about Lawless Acts, or Are They Circulating Astral Dreams?

Fortunately, during this process of transition, most of the acting out that we hear about on the astral plane and in the astral stories is really just vivid dream states brought on by the Ascension process. It is like waking nightmares. And it seems like people are acting out all kinds of things. But in fact, if you check the daily news, and if you check the police reports, you will find that all that stuff is really not happening.

So, there is that. That is really a wonderful thing. And so, there will be a few issues, here and there, of lawlessness, but in general, I think, throughout the ages on Earth, that has been true, has it not? It is only that, these days, as these issues continue to unfold, people are becoming more and more aware of the causes.

Those of us who are Ascensioneers know the extreme importance of clearing … of doing our own clearing work. We concentrate all our effort on clearing our own light bodies, and on allowing the light to flow through from heaven to Earth, through us. Rather than trying to influence large masses of people right now, we encourage everybody to create that divine connection between Source and their own Spirit, and between their Spirit and this Earth on which we live. And I advise that as well. I think that is the most worthwhile thing we can do here on Earth.

An Instance of Malware – Malspeak to Do with the Notion ‘My God, I Want Your Money!’

Here is another instance of malware – malspeak to do with the notion “My God, I Want Your Money!” Let’s say you are in a group with this motto, and you are intent on gaining money from women. So, you are looking at a woman, and you say to her, soulfully, “My God, I love you!”

What does that mean, really? If this is a ploy … a ploy based on Soul wounding … then what that means is that this person feels that:

  • They are a great spiritual person who loves God,
  • They look down upon you, a woman,
  • They want to convince you, through a subterfuge or ruse, that they love you,
  • And they want your money.

The group’s first-tier karma is mixed: They are great spiritual people who love God. That is good. They look down on women. That is bad. They use a ruse for fund-raising. That is bad.

The second-tier karma has to do with the woman’s loss of faith in the group, when her money is taken through a pretense of romantic love. The second-tier karma will be less severe if the woman’s does not lose her life over the money desired by the group.

An Instance of Karmic Pass-Down of One Spiritual Leader’s Malspeak to Five Spiritual Groups and Law Enforcement

Projection of the Thought “You Whore!” Based on Childhood Wounding. Here is an astral story regarding malspeak in a spiritual leader who had a rough childhood … Because his mother made her living as a sex worker, he had Soul wounding around women being whores. This leapt out, in physical terms, as it came up for clearing one day, as he and one of his male students drove past a female student walking down the sidewalk.

As the early Soul wound experience came up from his subconscious, he shouted out the car window to the walking lady, “You whore!”

Astral Malspeak Infection Flowing from Group to Group. This malspeak based on his early Soul wounding spread to the man riding with him, who felt great loyalty to the spiritual leader. From there, by word of mouth, it spread throughout that group. 

Unable at that time to resolve the early Soul wounding, the leader continued, whenever he felt angry, to cast his thought “You whore!” to the female student, who soon left his group on that account. Yet this thought of the leader continued to follow her at a distance; it became an idée fixe … a ‘fixed idea’ that dominated his mind and was hurled at the woman from time to time.

She moved on to another group which, as luck would have it, was called up by the first leader, and told that the woman was a whore. This thought, though it had not a basis in the woman’s life, nevertheless had great relevance to the leader in terms of his unresolved feelings toward his mother, who had passed on.

The strength of the second group’s feelings against profligacy was, through astral malspeak infection from the first leader, transferred to the second group, from which she was astrally ousted. She then moved to a third, fourth, and fifth group, the members of each of which were called, on the astral plane, if not on the physical plane, by the original leader, or by others infected with the malware.

This karmic pass-down from the first spiritual leader, to his spiritual group, and then to four more spiritual groups, was like a slow waterfall effect that took place over several decades. During those years, the woman at the effect of the astral malspeak was leading a meditative, chaste lifestyle.

Yet the astral clamor from the people in these groups eventually reached local law enforcement, who became convinced, through astral infection, that she was a woman of ill repute; this they came to believe with such conviction that they assigned a 24/7 police car to her, which found that she went to a senior center to play dominoes during the day, and stayed at home nights. Or so goes the astral story. 

Projection of Blame: Scapegoating and Group Ostracism. The process of astral malware infection is like astral gossip, slander or calumny. It hooks onto Soul wounding in other people … maybe, for instance, they may have been called a whore or a profligate person in childhood, and they would like to shift the blame for the feelings of guilt they have onto a ‘scapegoat’, a ‘whipping boy or girl’ … a ‘fall guy’ who can be ostracized from the group as they themselves, in their inner hearts, feel they might be in jeopardy of being done to.

So the mechanism of ostracism from a group is another form of psychological projection of feelings of guilt or social unacceptability onto a ‘patsy’.

Solutions to Malspeak Now in the Works. Because of the healing quality of the incoming light, the first-mentioned spiritual leader, the malspoken people in his and other groups, and the woman at the effect of the malspeak are now in the process of resolving their Soul wounding to the greater light of New Life on New Earth.

Sexual Guilt . Affirmations for the Inner Child . Desensitization of Soul Wounding . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

This is a video about healing early childhood Soul wounding that results in feelings of sexual guilt, embarrassment, or unworthiness. There is also a section on how to compose an affirmation for the inner child, so as to heal Soul wounding. And also, an example of early childhood Soul wounding that causes one to avoid bathing or showering.

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

An Affirmation that Sexual Feelings Are Good

I have a little saying to say if your inner child is embarrassed about a sexual feeling. It goes like this [intoning]:

You’re a GOOD little child,   (x2)
You’re the GOODEST child!
Bless my SOUL!

So when you use these kinds of sayings, or affirmations, for the wounded inner child …

  • As soon as you pinpoint what the issue is, you think of the antidote, the opposite thought and the opposite emotion.
  • And then you put that into the kind of words that a small child would say or love or enjoy.
  • The type of words that you use depend on the age of the child at the time of the Soul wounding.

How to Compose an Affirmation for the Inner Child

So this saying, “the GOODEST little child,” is for a very small child; maybe three years old, and who appreciates that kind of fun play with words. And you may wish to refine that later on, if it is not quite right for your own inner child, you know? But when you have got it down, or as you are testing it, you use that affirmation whenever the feeling comes up, the feeling that you are trying to heal.

And in this case, it would be …

  • a feeling of guilt
  • or of unworthiness associated with feeling sexual.

The Technique of Observing Emotions Arise, with Neutral Mind

On the astral plane, I heard about a case of a young child that got a reprimand for feeling sexual. The reprimand took place … as is so often the case … in a bathroom setting, a bathtub / bath setting.

When the reprimand is severe enough to create Soul wounding, and it is during bath time, or shower time, then the result can be that, in adult life, the child just does not want to take a shower, or just does not want to take a bath when they grow up. They want to avoid that.

And that, I think, in some cases, that the reprimand … say, corporeal punishment, most likely, at an early age … creates the feeling, while you are getting clean in the shower or bath, that feeling sexual is dirty, is bad, is wrong … like that.

And so, whenever the child, after that, finds themselves in the bathroom, confronted with a shower or bath, they feel dirty. Despite that the results of the shower or bath would make them clean.

It is the deep unconscious or subconscious mind that makes them feel dirty when confronted with the notion of taking a bath or bathing. So they may actually avoid showers and baths in adult life because of that early Soul wounding.

I do have a tentative notion about that. For me, that is not an issue; I just love baths and showers. But in the astral plane, I have heard about folks with this issue,

  • and I thought maybe, if the bath or shower is approached with rapt awareness and neural mind, then a person might be able to discover, to notice the emotions that arise with this awareness, this neutral mind, and to just be ‘in the moment’ with these emotions, as they come up.
  • And in that way, transform them with the Awareness, eventually.
  • I have no doubt but what it would be kind of hard at first. But maybe, if the neutral mind and the awareness are repeated several times with several showers, then that feeling of upset eventually can be neutralized.

If any of you have heard of other techniques, or know if this technique would work, I would be interested to know about it.

That is it for now; talk to you later.

. . . . . . . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This video is about selfless service, the notion that suffering can be good, and the notion that a child might merit corporeal punishment ‘for his own good’; that ‘he deserves it’. There is also a discussion of alms-giving and the Christian church.

Here is a Précis of the video; beneath that is the video and the transcription of the video, which is a bit more ‘blousy’ than the Précis.

PRECIS OF THE VIDEO

Selfless Service: Joy or a Sense of Duty?

A spiritual institution that does not allow its members free will with regard to selfless service detracts from their electromagnetic fields and strips them of their power. Such an institution readily turns to hypnosis for the sake of one person who is in charge of the institution, and aggregation of power by him through abrogation of the free will of the members ‘for their own good’.

To the leader of such a spiritual institution, it seems like a wonderful thing, as he becomes very powerful, very macho, very top ego, top dog … it’s the most terrific thing … but for everybody else in the group, it’s pain and suffering and hellworlds and being used.

The All and Free Will

As the Awakening continues, more and more people will come to value the principles of the All and Free Will upon which our planet is based, and so the institutions of today will turn into the institutions of tomorrow that value the All and Free Will … the prayer that all beings everywhere may be happy, may have enough to eat, may exist in joy, and have free will.

My conclusion regarding selfless service is that it will not help a spiritual institution unless it comes from the joy of the heart, rather than simply from a sense of duty. Let us purify and cleanse the notion of selfless service for humankind.

Alms, Penance, Forgiveness and the Christian Church

People come to spiritual counselors with regrets about their lives, feelings of guilt about some of their actions, feelings of despondency and despair. Their Spirit sorrows.

In the old days, in Europe, when wealthy people were near death, they would give alms to the Christian church as penance for their earthly deeds. The Christian church was in a difficult position regarding this, as they wished to grow their church, to obtain more lands and spread their teachings, and these alms from the rich would help that end.

And so, despite their misgivings, the clerics of those olden days agreed to the practice of giving alms for penance. The difficulty being that wealthy persons of that era might seize on the practice of giving alms … at the very last minute … at death’s door, as it were … after having lived a life quite in contrast to the church’s teachings. This was, in effect, a minor bow to the philosophy of Consequentialism; the end was a good one, but the means were somewhat iffy. For instance, was the practice of giving alms at death’s door really helpful to the Soul? For quite some century, this question provided food for thought.

Then as the Christian church evolved, the Souls of the Christian people became more clear, and an edict was passed that dispensed with alms-giving as penance. The notions that penitence, asking Christ for forgiveness, and being determined to live a better life through Christ were more important than alms-giving, that the heart was more important than the pocketbook, became the rule that the now many Christian churches still adhere to today. Although, quite naturally, there is still a need for financial donations, as with all earthly institutions.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones. It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I thought I would mention a little bit more the philosophy that punishment should be meted out because it is good for a person, especially a child, ‘because they deserve it’ … which sometimes happens when parents are angry … They will say something like: You deserved it! … And then the child gets ‘corporeal punishment’, as it is called.

Or the parent may come home after a day at work, and exercise ‘corporeal punishment’ and say: It’s for your own good! … like that. This philosophy that punishment is good for us carries over from childhood learning and childhood trauma into adulthood.

Selfless Service: Joy or a Sense of Duty?

There are even institutional instances that espouse as dogma this Soul wounding notion that ‘It’s for your own good’. When this happens … when there is an institution that subscribes to this notion, the result is the pursuit of punishment as a good thing … as an end in itself … the pursuit of suffering.

This happens most prominently in spiritual institutions that feel selfless service is good for the Soul. Now in many instances a spiritual institution could not survive without the notion of selfless service. And so the people give of themselves so as to enjoy the benefits of the group … to help the group thrive and grow. But the problem is that these notions that suffering is good for us, and that we deserve suffering, and that it is for our own good, also enter into the notion of selfless service.

I remember years ago I belonged to an ashram. It was many years ago. And they had a notion about selfless service. But the problem was that it would get out of hand, and that I would find myself spending every spare minute doing selfless service. And I would not be able to get done the things that I loved to do as well … such as playing kirtan and so forth … because all the time I was doing selfless service, which was defined by the head of the ashram as certain things that might (or might not) be things that I enjoyed doing.

As I have gotten older, I have come to an understanding about selfless service, that it will not help an institution unless it comes from the joy of the heart. And so, when I step over that boundary from doing things for the joy of it, for the sake of the world, for the sake of humankind … into the territory of ‘Suffer, because it’s for your own good!’ I suddenly reversed the whole energy of selfless service. And suddenly, nothing that I do serves the world and helps the world. Instead of adding to the great, positive energy of the world, it adds to the negative energies, the obverse side of the Duality play.

I will not go into the entities in the astral realm that are involved; I am sure you know that story. So may I suggest that we purify and cleanse this notion of selfless service, which all the Lightworkers wish to do … selfless service for humankind. If you are involved in a group or a spiritual institution: Selfless service for that institution … but only if it does not hurt. Only if we love every minute of it.

We can choose. We have that power of choice. And when we do not choose, then we have an institution that takes away the power of free will of all its people, and detracts from their electromagnetic fields.

That kind of institution very readily turns to self-hypnosis for the sake of one person who is in charge of it. The power is stripped from the individual, and all the individuals in the group, and sent instead to one leader of the group, who then prescribes selfless service that becomes suffering because of our lack of free will. That is something definitely to be avoided.

To the leader himself, it seems like a wonderful thing, because he becomes very powerful, very macho, very ‘top dog’, right? It is the most terrific thing; but for everybody else in the group, it is pain and suffering and hellworlds and being ‘used’. That is a terrible thought, is it not?

The All and Free Will

As the Ascension proceeds; as the Awakening includes more and more people, more and more people will come to value these notions of the All and free will upon which our planet is based. And so the institutions of today will turn into the institutions of tomorrow that value the All and free will.

All beings everywhere … may they all be happy! May they all have enough to eat! May they all exist in joy! May that be so for all beings everywhere! And may they all have free will! May they all act according to their free will!

More and more these will be the hallmarks of the great human institutions of new life on New Earth.

Alms, Penance, Forgiveness and the Christian Church

I have just a little more to say about the type of selfless service … People come to spiritual counselors at big institutions and they say: Oh my! I am guilty of so many things! I have concerns about so many things in my life that I wish I had done in a different way!  … Like that, you know? And: Oh my gosh! I treated my children in this-and-such a way from time to time, and now they don’t love me!  …  and … What can I do? I feel very bad. I feel worthless. I feel despondent. I am in great despair. I am in great pain. My Spirit sorrows.

In the old days … in medieval times … this used to happen near death, There was one great Christian church then in Europe. And they had a setup for the wealthy there. It was important to the churches to obtain more and more lands, and to obtain more and more money, and to grow the church … the Christian church … the great Christian church of those eras. So the rich would come; and this was interesting prospect because of the goal of growing the church, that the rich should come, at the end of their lives … having lived perhaps exactly as they wished to live, in a state of pursuit of pleasure all their lives, no matter what the cost … that kind of thing.

Then they would come, at the end of their lives, when their health was failing, they would say: What shall I do? How can I save my Soul? … Right?  … It is time to worry about that. This is typical of life in the world, actually. But back then they used to have a solution; they would say that their clerics would pray for a certain person if a certain amount of alms would be donated to the church. And the wealthy would go right for it. They were used to somebody else doing their job for them. All that would be taken care of, and their Souls would be saved.

This was the practice of giving alms in exchange for heavenly removal of guilt, and so forth. Then came a time when a popular sentiment that arose, that this practice was no longer appropriate. It seems to me that, as the spirits of the people evolved, as their Souls became more pure, they came to an understanding that the giving of alms for the sake of receiving penance was a misuse of the power of the church for the sake of worldly gain … for the sake of worldly power. And there was a change in the rules of the church so that was not allowed that to happen anymore.

There was an upgrade in the understanding of everybody in the Christian church. It was a big deal at the time … a very big deal … to move from power-based feeling, up to the feeling of the heart … and to let the heart rule … and to stand in the notion that asking forgiveness of Christ would remove our sins … that that was what we had to do: Not give alms, but ask for forgiveness from Christ; and in that manner to begin to walk with Christ, and to feel the Christ consciousness. We are capable, as human beings, to begin to receive that grace from God.

I have mentioned this because the giving of alms is another misconstruction of the notion of selfless service. This is my feeling: I think when people come to any institution with a heavy heart, and a notion that their sins must be absolved, that the thing to do is to explain to them that when they need to seek forgiveness. They need to give themselves a chance to be forgiven; to know that God’s grace waits for them … the grace of Christ, if they are Christians; the grace of the Buddha, if they are Buddhists, and so on.

What this does is it changes the heart energy from negative to positive. It changes the energy so that … instead of working towards a goal, say, of eventually being forgiven by doing a certain number of hours work every day, or by giving a certain amount of money … that instead they know that God’s grace is everywhere, and that forgiveness is instantaneous, and that all they need to do is ask.

I feel this very strongly: That it is a distortion of the Light to ask for alms in terms of work hours or money in exchange for forgiveness.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
