THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
HOW OTHERS CAN KILL YOUR SOUL
Dr. Trudie Bartholomew
Is it possible for us to kill our soul, or for other people to do things that kill our soul?
Our soul is the light by which we travel in our journey through this life and the afterlife, meaning that without this light, we are in darkness. It is this light that leads us to other worlds, but in the afterlife, we can only be lead to higher dimensions if this 'light' is on. The soul is what makes us a human being, and gives us the ability to understand the value of other people. You are your soul; if the soul is killed, you cannot exist!
How do we kill the souls of other people without even realizing it?
We kill the souls of other people when we make them insensitive to spiritual values, make them blind to their future spiritual goals, kill their sense of direction and responsibility or by killing their instictive resistance to evil. This is often done through the medium of television and newspapers, who kill our resistance, decaying the soul.
It is a great universal crime to kill your own soul, but not greater than killing someone else's soul.We must be careful that we do not allow other people to kill our souls. This can easily happen when you lead them into a spirit of hatred, revenge, self-deceipt and separativeness; it easily happens in business.
You could also kill the soul of others by sidetracking their interests and attention from their purpose in life by keeping them busy with frivolous, non-essential things.
Another way of killing another person's soul is by inflaming his ego, vanity and greed! Advertisements increase our greed.
We kill other people's souls by teaching them how to kill, cheat, manipulate or exloit! Another way of killing other's souls, is by being an example of hatred, revenge, deceipt, ugliness and unrighteousness. We see many examples of this in movies that will contaminate millions of people. People see that as a 'standard' and want to look and be like the 'hero' in the movie. It is best to eliminate these things from your life if you would like to become happy, healthy, prosperous, peaceful, creative and beautiful, because the source of beauty comes from within; your soul is love, health, creativity and joy! Everything that you need is already within you; your soul is the light that shines to help you find all that you need.
If you make other people abandon their principles of beauty and purity, you are helping to put out the light, thereby slowly starting the killing of their souls. Someone once told me that he does not offer anyone anything to drink, as he did not want to be responsible for that person possibly becoming addicted to alcohol in the future. A great lesson in wisdom!
You also kill another person's soul if you encourage them to occupy themselves with mediumship and necromancy - calling up the spirits of dead souls. If you do this, you are hooking them to something that will destroy them. Rather lead people to purify their lives and create so much love and beauty within, that they will be able to develop their own higher psychism and intuition, so that they will be able to contact higher energies of pure love and wisdom.
When we take away other people's freedom and joy, we kill their souls. Be careful, as Karma is watching and sees what you are doing. By taking away other people's freedom, we are destroying the plan of God that was planted in that person. We kill the light of another person's soul by imparting false or twisted information. When this happens, the person cannot think clearly, and you become karmically responsible. By preventing other people from building a relationship with Higher Worlds, we are killing their soul by causing them to be earthbound. We have no right to impose our will on others, whether we do this through counselling, therapy or training; if we do, we again become karmically involved and responsible for the ripple effect of our actions.If we teach people to be materialistic, totalitarian and filled with self-interest, we kill their souls for centuries to come; we see this in Communism, Fascism and Nazism. All these things are taught to criminals, leading to treason and killing.We need to teach people admiration for higher values, and not judge or kill their values, for example their devotion to Christ, God a spiritual being or even other people. If we discourage and judge other belief systems and religions, we may be responsible for delaying the person's soul evolution, as we have no idea what goes on in other people's soul and path of learning.An unforgiving attitude kills the soul, and destroys the foundation of another's soul. Another way of killing another person soul is the continuous current of hatred and revenge towards people or groups, thereby cutting their life thread and continually destroying their souls. By wasting our time, energy and money to feed our own pleasures and stupidity, we kill our soul. This leads to losing opportunities to do sacrificial service and taking responsibility; if we are preventing others to taking the opportunity to serve humanity, we are killing their souls!To bring back your soul, you have to remember what wrongs you did, and try to have a great desire and aspiration to repair the damage. The next step is to start thinking sincerely about higher values and feed your soul with true teachings, remembering that everything that is good, joyfull, righteous and beautiful, feeds your soul and make the 'light' brigher. The real Chinese, Tibetan or Indian medicine teaching was 'to feed your soul first'. They said that disease is the result of illness of your soul; some part of your soul became ill, and therefore your body is ill. If we want to be well, we immediately need to change our thoughtforms, by changing values we will destroy old, dark thoughtforms, and by creating joy, love, righteousness, gratitude, beauty and sacrificial service, build new thoughtforms. Start by sending love and gratitude to everybody that you envy or are jealous of. Pure thought is a great shield for us; if we do not have this protection, we are under attack.
Wishing you a great soul-light filled weekend!Love
