What Is Hope?

When things go wrong, as they sometime will,
The optimist thinks: ‘They’ll come right again!’,
While the pessimist grumbles: ‘It’ll only get worse!’
And as our thoughts and beliefs create our earthly reality,
Both forecasts duly come true.
Each one nodes sagely: ‘I told you so!’
That’s why when times are hard,
Positive thinkers say to themselves:
‘Things will get better and become easier again.’
And although this may take time,
They invariably do.

What then is hope?
It is not the closing of one’s eyes to
Difficulties, risks and possible failures,
But an inner trusting that:
If we fail now, we shall not do so forever.
If we get hurt, we shall be healed.
If we make mistakes, we shall learn something,
And that will eventually move us on to higher learning.

Hope is the awareness of our innermost soul that
Life is good and the power of love is the most powerful
Force in the whole of Creation that is capable
Of straightening all crooked corners and, if we but ask,
Helps us to make good and heal everything,
Especially our most difficult situations and relationships.

Hope is an inner knowing that in God’s time, not ours,
All things on the Earth plane will come right;
That our present existence can be likened to
A huge stage and that one of these days
We shall step in front of the curtain
Behind we have been acting for such a long time.
Like performers we shall then stand
In the world of light before a friendly audience
Of Angels and Masters, friends and helpers.

Every participant of the comedy of errors that is Earth life,
Eventually feels the need to nail the desires of their small self
To the cross of consciousness of the Earth.
At the end of their present lifetime,
Wise ones, who have willingly submitted themselves
To Saturn’s demands and shown the restraint of self-discipline
And self-mastery in all their relationships,
Have left behind good and healed ones only.
Life itself present them with a leaving certificate
That sets them free from the need of requiring
Further lessons on the Earth.

Like in earthly schools, their teachers,
In this case the Angels,
Move the wise ones on to increasingly elevated
Levels of existence and studies.
And that is how all human souls,
In the fullness of time, take their final bows.

United in friendship and love,
Smilingly we reach out for each other and, holding hands,
We enjoy the roar of applause that greets us,
Although in truth we are much more eager to see
Where the Angels now wish to lead us.

Having surrendered our small earthly self to our Highest Self,
In the shelter of God’s mighty wings,
In all Eternity we shall serenely venture forth,
Never to be frightened or lonely again.

‘I will abide in Thy tabernacle forever.
‘I will make my refuge the shadow of Thy wings.’
Psalm 61:4

‘Life is eternal and the human spirit is immortal. In truth, there is no death and life consists of absolute and unbroken continuity. On its inner level all is one, and you are as much part of me as I am of you. Nothing needs to change between you and me, just because I have gone through the great transformation before you. If we both so wish, our relationship can remain the same it always was between you and me, and life continues to be everything it has meant to us. My departure from the physical plane was no accident; it was meant to happen exactly when it did. For your sake – not mine – make an effort to accept this, the way I have done. And don’t believe anyone who tries to tell you that because I am out of your sight, I should also be out of your mind. That can only happen, if you so wish. But if you still want me, the death of my physical body is going to present us with many opportunities for coming closer to each other than it was ever possible, when we both still dwelled in physicality.

Reflections On Hope

Hope is an inner knowingness
That regardless of all the things that are still happening in it,
The life we have been given is a good one.
It is trusting that the Love that has always guided and protected
Each one of us, in the course of many lifetimes,
Will forever continue to do so.
Because this love is omniscient, omnipotent and present
In everything that is in the whole of Creation,
There is every reason why we should trust it that,
In Its own time, not ours,
It can and indeed will help us to heal not only
Our most difficult situations and relationships,
But also whole worlds and everything in them.

Hope springs eternally from the fountain of the Great White Spirit.
Father/Mother of all life.
It is the inner guidance every soul receives,
No matter how closed off they still are to these things,
From the Christ Spirit within, their Highest of God Self,
In whom we are all one.

Until the small earthly self finally conquers its self-imposed
Limitations and succeeds,
The living Christ within encourages it to try, try again –
Many times against all the odds.
It constantly coaxes each one of us on
Into new understanding and wisdom that can
And indeed is meant to be found even in
The most harrowing experiences.

Every human souls contains this part that endows us
With the courage, strength and determination to start again,
Even after total personal and collective breakdowns,
So we can rebuild ourselves and our world,
And find healing for both their inner and outer wounds,
Safe in the intuitive knowledge that better things will come,
If we but persevere.

Hope is the Great Spirit’s eternal gift to humankind
That through famine, wars, disasters and all others types
Of destruction moves us and our world inexorable
Onwards and upwards onto ever higher levels of
Learning, each through their own experiences.

Hope is one of the Universe’s gifts, maybe the finest,
Because it enables us to trust that, in truth,
The moment of physical death is not an ending,
But a new beginning and a release into
The greater freedom of our true home, the world of light,
Where those who have gone before us
Are waiting to welcome us.

Aquarius

From White Eagle ‘The Lightbringer’: ‘You are born into flesh, but you are spirit and you are so placed that your spirit may quicken and grow and become conscious of its Divine inheritance. You are not limited by the Earth life. Many millions on this Earth actually think that when their body dies, they die too.

What a surprise they will have when they see their body lying inert and dead, and they themselves are still consciously living, although they have no power to raise their dead body. The spirit is thus set free in a world of spirit, which immediately surrounds the Earth plane.

Love and friendship with all life are God’s true nature and our own. This is a love that gives of itself freely and willingly to all Its creations. It asks for nothing in return and from the moment of its emergence from the heartmind of God, every soul is accompanied by this love. This is the only truly caring friend who never leaves us and will stay with us forever. Thick and thin, good and evil alike are jointly experienced by the small earthly self and its Heavenly companion, who has always been there for it and forever will be. Ready to be called upon at any time, it has shown us the way through all our past adventures. It is with us in the present and will safely guide us through the explorations that are yet to come. Each time we act as a truly caring friend towards someone, God’s kingdom on the Earth is newly established.

Friendships of this nature are of particularly great value in times of coping with the loss of loved ones. They truly are gifts from the Universe, but they have to be earned before they can be given. If we can play this role for someone, maybe many, the Universal laws ensure that we too shall find at least one of these comforting presences, whenever we are in need of it ourselves.

Thank you, Great Spirit, Father/Mother of all life
For the gift of every one of our relationships.
Dwelling in the conscious awareness of our oneness
With You and the whole of Your Creation,
Help us to lift each one of our relationships,
Especially the most difficult ones, onto ever higher levels of
Friendship and total and unconditional love,
So that we may become ever more like You.

In the name of love we ask this.
Amen

The brightest future will always be based not on a forgotten, but a forgiven and healed past. We cannot successfully move on in life until we have let go of our past mistakes, failures and heartaches. Recognise and accept each one of them as an essential part of the lessons you have come to experience in the course of your present lifetime, and give thanks for them. You will then find that there is no longer anything to forgive, yourself or anyone else.

‘The American poet John Greenleaf Whittier, 1807-1892 wrote in his poem for the funeral of William Lloyd Garrison, 1805-1879: ‘Death is the Angel sent who draws the unwilling bolt and sets the captive free’. When the time comes for the physical body to be laid aside, there truly is no need for grief. The other one’s spirit has only passed from your outer vision. It remains near you because where there is love there is no separation. The spirit of the person left behind merges with that of the released spirit. The law of harmony prevails, the law of reunion. The two come together as one. Yes, Earth life is a hard school, but you will find it easier to endure when you draw aside the curtain and live conscious of the limitless spiritual life.’

as you know aquarius i sometimes reply to you and i must seem a thorn in your side and im sorry for that There is no way i have this belief of reincarnation and everyone is entitled to their opinions as i always say this is a bereravement site and i will not get into any debate whos right or wrong it's not the place for that but when we write anything about suicide we have to be exceptionaly careful and responsible for our words if you are qualified in some way to helping those with this dreadful illness then perhaps my views are inapropriate but i am careful one word out of place may throw someone over the edge i speak to many people who are suffering in this illness words can be twisted to give different meanings and might give someone contemplating suicide who reads our threads the ok to do it I know you didnt write this with those intentions but it horrified me to read on the 22nd sept post you wrote that someone who had passed through suicide would be shown where they went astray and how they could have done better and then could come back reincarnated to benifit from the experience i know you believe this but do you not think it just MIGHT give someone suffering this illness the green light to go ahead and do it thinking it's alright my life is so bad i can end it be reincarnated and the next time it will be ok we have to be aware that many people come on here suffering in lots of different ways i have spoken personally to many who have been suicidal on here i would like your views on why you think your words will not harm someone x

Dear Hazel - thank you for sharing your observations with us here. I do believe in the law of Karma and reincarnation. Without it, our whole existence doesn't make much sense to me.

The law of Karma is the law of cause and effect and its cycles extend through many lifetimes. This is for the simple reason that it may be impossible to settle the results of our present actions during our present earthly sojourn. Karma means paying one's debts and consists of a balancing act, because we also reap the rewards for the things we did well in previous lifetimes. The Universal law of Karma in truth is a law of opportunities which are thus created as a means for our spirit and soul to progress. Once we have become aware that we are responsible for ourselves and every one of our thoughts, words and actions, that every action causes a re-action, either positive or negative, the need for creating difficult karmic situations and relationships leaves us.

However, our final release from the wheel of Karma can only take place, when we have fully grasped – on all levels of our being – that we are eternal beings and when we are conducting our lives in accordance with the knowledge we are now finding. To my mind, the realisation that the things we could not complete in our present lifetime can be finished off in another one is the single most liberating item of spiritual wisdom the Age of Aquarius is bringing to us and our world.

From ‘The Law Of Karma’


‘Comfort for the Bereaved’


With love – Aquarius

i know what you believe there was no need to repeat it to me i don't need it thankyou my concerns seem to have gone over your head i still think in my PROFESSIONAL opinion it's a dangerous comment you wrote and i only hope that they are never read by anyone suffering this illness Like all arrogant people by that i mean you are right and everyone else is wrong you don't listen to concerns and reason writing this on the suicide thread is a very unintelligent mistake .i never say to anyone in their religious beliefs they are right or wrong it is of no concern to me i am intelligent enough to read and think for myself It's a shame you have no understanding of the harm you could cause I'm sure those grieving a loved one through suicide may find your reincarnation a comfort to them they could find your words for that on your very good thread food for thought but i counsel those contemplating suicide i have some idea how their mind works many come on here and i am very concerned for them
