Spiritual guides or instructors, guardian angels or any Force that represents God for the human creature, work to facilitate, catalyze, inspire and supra-ordinate, and not to deliver standardized answers or solutions, except in rare occasions. If they acted as an open source for the immediate resolution of problems, they would become true “evolutionary thieves,” incurring a similar error to that of the teacher who does the homework for the student, thus preventing him or her from exercising what he or she learns.
Only through their own experiences (even if assisted) of trial and error, can human beings, in the process of developing their intelligence and their feelings, of expanding their consciousness and their lucidity, find the genuine (for they are very personal) pathways, answers, choices and solutions for each drama, challenge or question that they face, in the infinite ocean of space-time, until their total transcendence, in the mystical ascension to Eternity… in the glorious immersion in the Bosom of the Divinity.
Thus, no one ought to expect from authentic spiritual masters – whether they are free from dense matter or encapsulated in it – precise, objective and specific formulas for the needs and perplexities that each individual must, respectively, attend to and dissolve.
This warning is of paramount importance for two reasons. First, the idea of having someone who shows, at no cost, the map of one’s evolutionary path (which is unique, varying from person to person) is very convenient. Second, one will easily find, in the physical and/or in the extra-physical plane of existence, those who wish to present predefined norms and schemes for the thought and behavior of others, often degenerating into subtle or crass control and manipulation, whether in the family, professional, academic or therapeutic environment, whether in the field of religions or the mediumistic interaction with other dimensions of consciousness.
Freedom of discernment and action is an inalienable and inviolable concession of Divine Origin. The great and continuous challenge-lesson, however, consists in recognizing the mental voices (internal or external) that truly resonate with one’s own consciousness (which naturally tunes in with the Will of God and His-Her representatives), distinguishing them from other psychic voices (inside or outside oneself), which reveal themselves, after a more accurate analysis, to be vectors of prejudice, of castrating moralism and of diabolical fanaticism, always leading to routes of extreme and avoidable suffering, of an undefinable time span, for all of those who allow themselves to be ensnared by their seductive traps of sophism and ill-concealed malevolence.
These deceiving and sinister mental vectors quite commonly appear, to the eyes of those less cautious, as elaborated and well-finished manifestations of the Good. Let us remember the grave alert of Jesus: “Watch and pray, so that you will not fall into temptation” … and also the unforgettable and almost frightening Christic warning: “Strive to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, because narrow is the door that leads to salvation…”
