Lovers of the Light, this is Brother Thomas – your friend and guide from the violet ray. Today I want to speak with you about experiences which are perfectly imperfect.
No one loves or desires peace more than we mystics. It is our nature to shun drama, live peacefully, and encourage others to do the same. We understand the great unity of all things and feel most authentic as we live harmonious lives. Our nature is to eliminate pointless arguments and drama from our lives. Mystics are about the business of love and acceptance. Yes, all of this is true, but it is also true that this is not the reason you came to this three-dimensional experience. I remind you that you are here because you wanted to make a difference for good despite the anger and injustices of this world.
You chose to walk through a refining fire so that, like precious gold, your soul might become beautiful and bright. You have chosen the path of perfectly imperfect experiences to do so.
Perfectly Imperfect Drama Finds us All
Is their turmoil in your family? It’s good that you experience that. Do cruelties and injustices stir outrage within you? That’s okay, let it shake your soul – you wanted that. Are you going through exceedingly hard times? All is as it should be. You did not take the easy way out. Instead, are in the line-of-fire for the betterment of your soul! Have you done all you can do to make an unhappy situation better – only to discover that things are getting worse? You are experiencing first-hand the value of learning about no-win outcomes. Nothing is wrong. All of this is a part of the perfectly imperfect path of training. Without suffering, no mystic is worthy of the name. It is one thing to walk spiritually in harmonious times, yet another when others mistreat and abuse us. Deep inside, you know all of this is true.
The Perfectly Imperfect Mission
So many cry and rail against Divine Source for the injustices they see. They say, “How can you let this go on? What kind of God are you? Where are you?” From a cosmic view – it’s almost humorous. Yet, we remain solemn. The perfection of the universe at your present address is in its intentional imperfect perfectness. Did you catch that? You live in an intentionally imperfect universe by agreement. Source, and you as a Spark of Source, intend this earth be exactly as you are experiencing it. This includes all of the cruelties, injustices, crimes against people and humanity, and the full range of dark emotions! It is perfectly imperfect so that souls might better prepare to carry out their unique mission.
The Perfectly Imperfect Boot Camp
The universe and a vast array of experiences await your soul. But, before you proceed, your soul needs training for the uncertainties ahead. You are now in a military boot camp – Camp Earth! Now that you know let us remind you that the experience of a recruit is very different than the military leaders who do their best to prepare the young soldiers for battles to come. Recruits feel the sting of harsh treatment and assume the worst motivations. Their trainers, on the other hand, know they are molding future leaders who must be able to do the right thing under conditions of pressure and deprivation. So it is with your earthly experience. As mystics, always remember the importance of experiencing the perfectly imperfect. We are preparing ourselves, and the souls about us, for adventures in universes untold.
Perfectly Imperfect Living
Camp Earth will present you with harm and hardship. Never assume the person who brings it is evil. They may well be one of your best friends from the other side who has loving chosen to be your drill instructor. When troubles come, humble yourselves. Do not assume that you know the whole story or fully understand what is happening to you. Instead, come before the masters in your time of meditation and ask for guidance. Train yourselves so that you might receive messages from the guides all of the time. Live in the light as much as you are able. And most of all, do not assume that because you resist some evil, that you will prevail! This dimension, quite intentionally, does not always allow victory to the most deserving! Resist, when it is the right thing to do, even knowing your winnings may be marginal – if at all.
Finally, do your best to carry your wounded brothers and sisters who face the pain and suffering of Camp Earth. On the other side of the veil, victory is even sweeter when all of you successfully finish your tests together! Hold each other up and cheer each other on with encouraging words. Yes, harmonious living is a most worthy goal; yet, it is our experiences in the fires of trial and adversity that make us a fit soul. Let us face these tests knowing our guides are ever near and ready to lend us immediate aid.
