Why so angry? Why so resentful? Why so sad? Look at the world as your spirit’s playground, as the school of your choice, as the challenge you decided upon once long ago in another time. You came to Earth to do exactly what you are doing in order to spiritually advance your Soul along its eternal path. You are not a victim of your life but the instigator of it. Hold yourself to a high standard every day while also holding in your heart the knowledge that you are learning lessons you need to learn and that you relish. Remember your ultimate goal. The memory of it lies within you. Once you discover it, your anger and resentfulness and sadness will become the greatest secrets to your evolution and the most promising insights to your future joy.

Sending you love,

Life has its rituals and patterns that seem to need attention, especially those attached to family and the expectations of society. But life also, in its evolutionary phase, may require the breaking away from those rituals and patterns so that individuality may be achieved. Individuality involves the evolution of the inner spirit, which may indeed involve breaking away from the constraints of society to discover its true purpose. Rituals uphold and frame life, but at a certain point it may be time to make them less important and to turn instead to what is really needed by the spirit in its intent to evolve. This may involve a period of solitary endeavor, such as recapitulation, in order to resolve old issues that hold the spirit captive. A solitary retreat, even for a few days, may hold the gold that you and your spirit seek.

Why are you there in the life you are in except to solve the riddle of yourself, to advance yourself, and to return to the whole that is your Eternal Self. Well, there’s a little more to the story. Not only is your own evolution your challenge but also the evolution of the planet you live upon, the Earth and all that it entails, including the multitude of others you inhabit the planet with. For all of you are charged with advancing the world you live in with your own advanced energy of loving kindness. Many are getting it right and many are yet to discover this, but it really is the case. Love is the universal energy to cultivate, engage in and utilize, the universal principle that will advance you all.

Sending you love,

Charge yourself with taking full responsibility for yourself in all you do. The life you are in is the growth phase that your spirit has accepted, and which you are fully participant in, from an evolutionary point of view. So there is no one to blame for anything, no one to charge with taking care of you, except you. Fully own your life and yourself for the evolutionary being you truly are and take your life to a new and joyous level each and every day.

Sending you love,

Chuck’s Place: Now is the Time of Testing

Being love…

What is the spiritual purpose of the coronavirus? We ask this question as a new variant, given the name of the Greek letter, Omicron, descends upon us.

Spirit is the purest, most rarified subtle energy intent behind physical reality. Spirit intent is encoded in DNA and in the subconscious programs that attract and solidify energy into the physical forms that we are and know ourselves to be.

Nothing exists that is not, at its most subtle core, spirit. Spirit is housed in the subtle body called the soul, just as the soul inhabits the physical body during its earthly sojourn. As one spiritually progresses, one’s consciousness lives in evermore subtle bodies of spirit.

Spiritual evolution is accomplished through the successful passing of tests at various soul body stages. While in human form the soul body is symbiotically attached to the physical body, thus much of the spiritual tests in human form occur in relation to the physical plane. Someone may have to deal with a debilitating illness; someone else may have to overcome extreme shyness; someone else may have to confront rejection, abandonment, or deep loss.

The greatest test in human form, however, is to bridge spirit truth with physical life. Spirit truth, first and foremost, knows that everything that exists is part of an indivisible whole. At a physical level, we appear as distinct separate objects; at a spiritual level we are all one.

The spiritual challenge of our time is to raise our consciousness to a higher level of truth and embrace actions that bring our interdependent physical whole into harmony and balance. To accomplish this we must overcome our separatist illusions that deny our deeper spiritual truth of oneness.

While in human form we are all holograms of Gaia, Mother Earth. Our separatist behaviors, which have thrown Gaia into disarray, have been our own process of coming to know ourselves, enacted through a system of differentiation from each other, a necessary developmental step.

However, differentiation is but the prelude to union. That which has been distinguished must find its way back to its wholeness, filled with new knowledge of self, gained through self-exploration. Greater consciousness is then rejoined with its greater wholeness.

The appearance of Omicron is rocking our very fragile sense of freedom and mobility. Something greater is being asked of us than simply a return to normalcy. Yes, we so want our freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, but we must raise these values to physical expression according to higher spiritual truth.

The freedom to travel and interact with the entire physical world is being transmuted to the spiritual level of truly caring for and loving everyone, and everything, in this world. Accepting physical limitation elevates spiritual connectedness.

Our collective spirit has landed in this physical world to bring the Earth into greater spiritual harmony. Symbiotically, our individual spirits are themselves being raised to higher soul body states, as we pass the tests presented in this physical world.

Progression is the ultimate law of spirit. Astrologically, both Pisces and Aquarius have Omicron stars in their constellations. For Pisces, it’s a big yellow star, for Aquarius a blue one. We have moved now from 2100 years of Pisces domination into the Age of Aquarius.

Pisces represents the goddess and god of love, Aphrodite and Eros, bound together as two fish in the sea, hiding out from the destructive shadow of Typhon, the personification of violent volcanic forces. Love has been safely protected in the time of Pisces but now is being challenged to rise out of the protective sea into the air of greater spiritual realization, into the water jug of Aquarius, the water bearer.

With such exposure, love cannot help but encounter its shadow in Typhon, cruel and power hungry. This is the collective test of our time, to overcome and absorb Typhon through the purest of rarified love.

Fear not this time of testing. Take full advantage of opening to loving all that you hate. Join with the water bearer in raising the spiritual level of self and world. It’s not about seeking love but all about being love. That’s the transformation that our times call for.

When you open your heart to loving, you become a loving being. And when you are love, you become fully available to love as well.

Let there be love,

Chuck and Jan
