This last week I received a question from a young man about money, pain, and suffering. After answering his letter, I felt to expand on that answer in this blog.
“I’ve heard many people talk about this experience is a “school” of life and how pain and suffering is the teacher, is the 3rd dimension really designed as a school for souls to learn and grow through pain and suffering? Another question I have is in regards to money. It seems most people my age are without money and just trying to get by in whatever way they can?”
Money, the root of all evil many religious men have taught. Suffer and you shall be closer to the lord, again many religious men have taught. Then comes along the New Age movement piercing the soul with an arrow of light.
Money is an exchange of energy. Many men have died for this energy; many men seek to control this energy keeping the common people in despair. I find this no different than some “New Age” teachers that teach life in this dimension is a school for pain and suffering. Yes, they continue to “educate”, or as I say indoctrinate the mind to believe pain and suffering is a reality one must live in order to grow. Once you take this belief as your own, you become it. Money is bad because there are people who use it to control? How many have ripped out the arrow of light from their soul believing what some “New Age” teachers are teaching, only to find out they are teaching the Old Age.
The Christian Bible is filled with messages on suffering; suffering is good for it brings you closer to Jesus. It is not just Christian teachings on suffering, it is also the teachings of all the major religions of the world, including Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, as well as many minor religions of today.
We can look back through history of the Old Age of religion, and how this religion used pain and suffering as a means to create fear of not being saved, the fear of not being accepted.
What if this New Age is about resolving, transcending these deep-seated beliefs that pain and suffering are a requirement for this school?
How many carry a subconscious belief money is the root of all evil? You can tell yourself I do not accept this belief, nor do I live my life to the religious standards of others. Do you?
What if you were able to research all of your relatives from the last 2000 years? Not just look them up, but see what all of them looked like, what were their beliefs, thoughts, desires, and fears. How many were murderers or murdered. How many of them taught their children to deny life in order to please others? What if you took all of these beliefs, fears, and religious standards from your family of the last 2000 years and changed its name to subconscious beliefs. We are talking about thousands of people and billions upon billions of beliefs. If this is too much of a stretch for the conscious mind to explore, then just search the last seven generations to examine.
Perhaps one of the primary differences between the Old Age and the New Age, the Old Age taught God is outside of you, and in the New Age, God is inside of you? During this transitional stage is New Age consciousness being lured back into old inherited beliefs, especially when they are in pain?
Certainly, the Old Age beliefs about money being the root of all evil seems to be buried deep in the crevices of our mind. But the Bible does not say money is the root of all evil. What it does say is, the love of money is a root of evil. This teaching from the Old Age teaches certain types of love are evil. You do not have to go far to see this belief in action, just look at gay marriage. Not that gay marriage and money are the same, but the teachings of the Old Age do teach certain types of love are evil. What a beautiful age we could live in if humanity were to let go of all the Old Age religious dogma.
It is very easy to fall back into the belief structures of the Old Age, thus allowing its energy to create a perverse reality of pain and suffering. If you are going to study something to assist in your healing, be cautious of hooks. A hook is something that pulls you back to the old, the old reality of pain and suffering. Hooks can come in many different words, deeds, or teachings. Such hooks are, follow me, I will protect you, ascension (New Age rapture), savior, escape, or end of the world. Some may experience many common belief hooks such as, this life is horrible, I want to hurry up and die so I can live in the 4th dimension. I am a star child, where in the hell are my space ships, I cannot heal myself so I must be a failure, or I will not seek medical treatment because that means I failed. These are all Old Age beliefs.
Many young people do seem to have issues with money. The following statement I agree with, it was posted by Ray on dreamspacecommunity.com.
“Millennials are a generation that has grown up in quite the interesting time. As adolescents they learned to live with technology, seeing the Internet and other technological advances shape their world. They have seen the highs and lows of the market, living through the Great Recession and coping with one of the most difficult job markets in American history. Everything around them is changing, from the environment to worldwide personalities. Truly, millennials have seen it all, and it has shaped their perception of the world. Unlike past generations, they are more environmentally mindful, technologically savvy, and socially connected. No matter how we look at it, they truly are one of the most advanced and unique generations thus far.”
What the media is calling millennials is what Jonah calls, “Children of the 21st Century”. It is true the parents of the generation called millennials truly let them down. Many of these children who are now adults had difficulty bonding with their parents. Many parents made life issues more important than their own children. I have worked with many of these children and young adults, many of them describing their pain of not being in a close loving emotional relationship with their parents. Is the lack of bonding with some of these young adults the reason many of them have money issues? Perhaps this is so, but not with all. Some of these young adults have incredible artistic abilities, but lack the knowledge of how to promote their ability. Perhaps some do not know just how powerful their art is. Some are magnificent writers or speakers, but lack the awareness of what to do.
Some state many of this generation are simply lazy. While part of that statement is true, in fact some of these people are perhaps the laziest in a millennium or two. Although, you certainly cannot lump them all together, as some of these young adults are incredible, even magnificent teachers. Some of these are not from this earth and have much difficulty in relating to earth consciousness. These young people need assistance. They are not lazy; in fact they are probably the most energetic people on the planet. It is time to support them, to lift them up and let them loose on an emotionally passive dying planet.
These young adults are the New Age; they are the New Age teachers teaching life does not need to be pain and suffering. It is time to move on from the Old Age. The New Age is here, be here, and be now.
