Vengeance Is Mine!

Love is the law of life for the whole of Creation and all other laws have their origin in this one and radiate out from it. First and foremost there is the law of Karma and another, equally important one, is evolution. Karma is created whenever the law of love is broken by any one of us. And for any kind of suffering we inflict upon one of God’s creatures – human and animal alike, and also ourselves – amends have to be made at some stage of our evolutionary pathway.

As a spark of the Divine, we come from love and love is our true nature. Only when we act in kind and loving ways are we true to it. Although they are an important part of every soul’s learning process, all negative character traces are but interim states of this. When each one of them has been mastered and overcome by us, we shall have returned to love. And we are all in this life together, so we can help each other to do just that. But what each one of us needs most of all is learning to trust God and the Angels and once again walk hand in hand with them. That’s what we did before our descent into matter and physicality took us ever further away from our true nature and the awareness of our oneness with God and all life, as the evolutionary law demanded from us. 

Whenever we need help or do not understand something, if we but ask, the way will be shown and answers will come. That is why in Matthew 7:7-8 the Bible tells us: ‘Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. For whoever asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to them who knock, the door is opened.’ Whenever we turn to our Highest Self and pray for its advice, quite literally we are knocking at the door of Heaven. And lo! It opens and answers us, though not from ‘out there somewhere’ but from within the very core of our own being.

When we take our small earthly self gently, lovingly but firmly by its hand, we are nailing this part to the cross of consciousness – again, as the Master showed us. It seems that from an ever increasing understanding of life’s higher purpose genuine forgiveness and compassion begin to flow freely from our heart and soul unto all those who are struggling around us. This brings healing and peace to our soul and that of our world. There is every possibility that over time a healing miracle may manifest itself in our own physical body and that of the Earth; the very atoms of both are going through a process of transformation. As we grow and heal, our whole world changes with us, because in truth, all life is one and there is no separation between anything and anyone. Every individual soul is part of the soul of our world, and that in turn is part of the great soul of the whole of Creation.

That is how it comes about that any harm done to any one of us is done to us all and also when one of us finds healing, we and our whole world are doing the same. And any knowledge any one of us acquires on this journey is always meant to be shared with others, to encourage them to start looking for their own healing. Later they in turn will be able to hand on their learning to others, and so forth. It is in this way alone, through everybody’s own efforts, that our world will at long last release itself from the darkness of the prison of its spiritual ignorance. We are all in this life together to help each other, to lighten each other’s burdens and one to light the other’s way. Should you be gaining anything from this article, why not gently try to widen someone else’s horizons?

Forget about missionary zeal; that is not what we are here for. But, you may be able to nudge open somebody’s inner doors of perception. One quiet chat with them could become their first step into gaining access to their own inner connection with the source of all wisdom and knowledge. It is enough to point out to them where it can be found; no more is required from us. This wellspring inside us is now waiting to be tapped into by everybody; it is every soul’s birthright to access it. When one person passes their knowledge onto another, a further light comes into our world. And when our whole world is filled with the light of spiritual knowledge, peace will at last be with us.

In case you are now asking: ‘What if I encounter an unpleasant reaction from someone? And what if that person is one of my friends?’ I would reply that you are now a wise one, so give thanks and praise to the Great White Spirit and the Angels for helping you to find so much wisdom. Then pray for the one who reacted badly, that they too in due course will be blessed as you have been. Know and accept that that soul’s time has not yet come; this will help you to step back from the situation and from them. Besides, you may wish to consider whether that someone who acted towards you in such a way is really your friend. Rise above by considering the whole episode as part of the invaluable lesson of learning to discriminate, which is also helping you to sort the wheat from the chaff in your life and relationships. Last but not least, do not forget to give thanks to the Universe for your having grown that bit more tolerant and wise through your present experience.

Corrie ten Boom says: ‘Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hate. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.’ Furthermore, and to my mind most important of all, it helps us to dissolve the manacles and irons of Karma.
