Why some Lives are Filled with Problems - Part 4

In this quote from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, they tell us how we earn entrance into the heavenly realms. The last sentence in this quote is truly a key to our success in life.

The Council:  The destiny that you have once you leave the material manifestation is not measured by how many good things you have done as opposed to how many bad things you have done, but it is measured by the true heart's desire. There are many things in life that you do that you wish you had not done, that you do not seem to be able to get full control on, will that hamper you from the God-Made Heavenly Realms?  Not necessarily, not necessarily. If the circumstances in life have been such that you are not capable of certain things, does this withhold you from the God-Made Heavenly Realms?  No. What will allow you entrance into the God-Made Heavenly Realms is when you ask yourself, "How much did I do?  How much did I really try?"  The answer that you give yourself will determine which of the Heavenly Realms you will go to. This Divine Essence does not judge you. This Divine God does not judge you. He does not weigh your good faults and your bad faults. He accepts you just as you are, all the good in you and all the bad in you, all the positive and all the negative. But you see, deep in you is a god in the making, a rediscovery of self, taking that divine essence, that divine spark, that spiritual electricity, and bringing it into the totality of your consciousness, your soul, your physical life, and allowing it to manifest to those around you. That is what life is about. A quality life or a spiritual life does not depend on how much you have; it depends on how much you have given of yourself.

Why some Lives are Filled with Problems - Part 3

In this third section of our six-part series William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, continues with the theme of improving our lives by growing in self-respect. They offer an essential "helping hand" to the process of spiritual growth.

The Council:  So, to change your life, to make it more productive, to give you more in life of what you want, to bring a spiritual development or growth to yourself, first love yourself. Have a self-respect, a self-esteem for yourself, and then create an image in your mind of yourself, create a positive image of yourself. A helping hand or an essential aspect of spiritual growth is something that your world today dislikes. Most of the world today feels this thing is not good, is old-fashioned, is unworthy. What is this thing?  It is discipline. In your society today, the word "discipline" is a vile word. It is dirty. It is unacceptable. Your society feels that discipline means to do without. This shows a lack of wisdom and insight because discipline does not mean do without, discipline means gain control of yourself so that you can have all that you wish in life, so that you can benefit from all experiences, so that you can have a life of peace, of joy, of happiness, so that you can have spiritual growth and all the material things in life that you wish. Discipline does not mean to do without. Discipline means to take control of yourself, give yourself a direction in life and follow that direction, by making conscious, well-thought-out decisions. Do not react, but act. Gain control of your life, gain control of yourself. Think about each challenge that comes to your life, each crossroads that you come to. Discipline means to gain all that you wish to gain. It does not mean to do without. Those things that you can control, wonderful, control them. Those faults that you may have that you cannot control, at least, with discipline, you are able to practice a degree of moderation. And so that which you cannot control, at least moderate it to a degree.
