Actions Speak Louder than Words

In this discussion between a researcher  and William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, they explain that our actions can demonstrate to others what we believe more so that talk.

Questioner: Back to this idea of bravery and standing up for what you believe in. When there are beliefs that you hold strongly and everybody else around you does not, but you can see that they would be beneficial if the other people did, does that come with time when you know when it is right to speak out about it or are you committing a sin of omission by not speaking out about it?

The Council: Sometimes we speak louder simply by our actions. The strongest voice you could have is your actions. Sometimes the weakest voice is talking about it. Let your life be your voice. Let your life be your example. Others will see. They will probably choose your advice much quicker by seeing you live it than by you talking to them about it. Of course, if they ask you a question, naturally you will give them an answer. You see?

Questioner: The truth, you will give them the truth.

The Council: Yes, of course.

Questioner: I was just wondering because there have been a couple times when Bill has said don't bring yourself any unnecessary grief about mentioning some things to other people. Say, for example, my pastor at church.

The Council: That is true. Why create yourself any unnecessary problems? Live your life. You do not have to tell people what your beliefs are. Live them. They will see it, but they will see it in a way that they can understand. Words sometimes can be confrontational.


If you live what you profess to believe, you eliminate the sermons, thereby eliminating the misunderstanding or the offensive words because of ignorance on the part of some people.

Ice Age of the Heart - Part 2

This is the second part of a discussion between SOL's research group and William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, where they talk about developing a more loving attitude towards family, friends and acquaintances.

Questioner: You were talking about the heart and how cold we are with the heart. OK, so if we want to change. How do we develop good attitudes to start opening up our heart?

The Council: Take advantage of what is around you. If someone loves you, return that love and more, in any way that is necessary. Seek out to make your partner happy. Seek out to make your mate happy. Seek out to make your family happy.

One other remark to what we have just said. Do not always rely on the person you are giving this love to to be totally honest with you in regards to your shortcomings. You may think you are giving enough love, and you may ask that person, "Are you happy?" And in order to be kind, they may say yes when there is great pain still there. Keep that in mind. Make sure the love you give is a love of quality, and we might add, to insure your profitable return, not only quality but quantity. Very well.

Questioner: And this just does not apply to like a spouse or family but in everyday life?

The Council: It applies to anything and everything. We addressed it specifically to interacting with another individual, but it is a principle that can be applied to all, all relationships.

Questioner: So, for example, when you continue to be kind, as another word for loving, to someone say at work and they just continually hurt you or don't return it or just nasty. How do you keep it up?

The Council: Well, if someone is just a sour apple, you try to sweeten it a little. In a case, in a situation like that, if they are not willing to accept the sweetness, then take your energies some place else and allow them to indulge themselves in their own negativity. Now there is a situation with individuals that you work [with] or casual acquaintances where yes, make an effort, but do not allow those people who are negative to draw you into their own negativity by occupying all your energy and time so that you cannot give it to others that will benefit from it. Let them stew in their own sour grapes after you have offered to help, to give.

All you can do is offer charity, we are using "charity" now in the strictest of Biblical senses which incorporates all the forms of love, not charity as far as necessarily as just giving to the poor. Be charitable to all individuals, but those who do not appreciate that charity, then shake the dust from your sandals and move on. Sometimes that is the best you can do. Possibly in the future they may remember that kindness and seek it out again.

Questioner: Council, you said you should try to seek out or seek making your loved ones happy. Is there an order to that, an order of responsibility? For instance, me, my mother would be the first order and then on down the line. Is that the way you should approach it?

The Council: In all life there is an order, there is an avenue by which you must travel, that which is most important to what is least important.

One has to decide priorities and hope that their decision is appropriate or correct. Those who truly love and in your case, as an example, those who would truly love you will understand the order. Do you understand?

Questioner: Right. So, if I had to tend to somebody else's needs first, the other person, who also loves me, should understand, if I am doing it right, the order of responsibility?

The Council: That is right. You see, it is a matter of loving and then loving in return. It is giving both sides. Those who love, the ones that are giving them love, must understand that there is a priority in life, and if they truly love the one that loves them, then they understand this priority and will encourage that priority. Unless the priority is the individual who is to encourage, then that individual should step aside as an additional act of love, allowing that individual then to give more freely in other areas. Is that clear?

Questioner: Would that be like an example of parents letting their child go out into the world when they really don't want to, they want to protect them, but they kind of push them out into the world because they know it is better for them or they know they have to learn?

The Council: Yes. That does not mean that your parents love you any the less. They are giving you your freedom, and that is the same with loving. If the person who is priority on your list to love, if they willfully step out of that position, it is an additional act of love on their part. Not a rejection. There a dilemma may rise up. What do you do? Well, if you are lucky enough to be in a situation like that, you will be in a situation to love more than just one priority. So you cannot lose when you are dealing with love.

Ice Age of the Heart - Part 1

To begin this two-part series we have the following opening statement by William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, talking about the state of the world in general. I think that most of us are loving and caring people who would quickly reach out to others in need. However, all of us know people who would not. The Council is pointing out how they and we can grow even greater in our loving relationships.

The Council: We will start with an opening statement.

Mankind, at this present time, exists in an ice age of the heart. We will repeat that. An ice age of the heart. In your world today, there are the users and the used. The common denominator with this lifestyle is loneliness, again, the common denominator is loneliness. Man has not learned that his only source of happiness is in his ability to love. There is no loneliness when one chooses to love, and if you have been blessed with a love or a great love, where loneliness does not exist within you, you are experiencing the best and most perfect of loves. Be ever grateful, be ever grateful. Be sure that you are giving as much as you are receiving. Be sure that if your loneliness has been taken away by the one you love, make sure that that individual also is absent of loneliness. This necessitates then you loving more than what you are presently giving. How sad man will exist in this ice age of the heart. The terrain will become more hazardous, more dangerous, and darkness will become even darker. This will continue to those who refuse to love, their hearts will be frozen to the point where it cannot be thawed out. They will choose everlasting state of the ice age of the heart. Those who venture forth from this dark, bleak time and begin to give of themselves will rise above that into spring meadows and warm sunshine. They will resurrect themselves above the coldness of man's world. They will be reborn into the springtime of eternity.

Questioner: Why would a person choose not to love?

The Council: That befuddles us. We should be asking man or mankind why he chooses not to love. The reasons are as numbered as there are individuals. There is no real answer to that question other than selfishness which then creates loneliness which then creates desolation of the soul. Does that answer the question?

Questioner: Yes. Now it is a conscious choice, right?

The Council: Well, whenever one does something unloving, it is a conscious choice at one level or another or at many levels. Some people are nasty, being so, fully conscious. Others are nasty because there are underpinnings that surface in the conscious mind that make them react unkindly or unlovingly towards a given situation. And that occurs because they have not put in those things that raise the spirit. Do you understand?

Questioner: You said that we didn't put in the things that helped the spirit. Are you saying like garbage in, garbage out?

The Council: Very accurate. Very accurate. You can only be, you can only reach, you can only see what you have put in to yourself. Do you understand that?

Questioner: Yeah, but even then we are still quite capable of blocking that, even all the good that comes in?

The Council: Put enough of it in, and you will succeed. If you think that you can put so much in and you still do things that should not be done, then you have not put enough goodness in. You have not pushed yourself enough. You have not eaten of the banquet set before you. You have chosen to eat artificial food that looks as good as the banquet, but gives no sustenance to the soul.

Helping those in Need Part 4

We are repeating the closing portion of the previous posting so that we can complete the discussion of Helping those in Need.

Questioner: Yes. Fix your own plumbing.

The Council: The question is: Why doesn't the plumber do that?

Questioner: Because it is easier to ignore your own plumbing and glorify yourself by fixing other people's plumbing.

Questioner: He is out after the almighty dollar, that's why.

The Council: Think about what YOU people have said. You see, you truly do have the answers. Possibly, once in awhile, some of you may need your knowledge jarred a little. We told you in the beginning, there is no secret. This Divine Creator loves you so deeply and so personally that nothing is hidden from you. Consequently, we cannot tell you a secret, since they do not exist. The best that we can do is try to get you to think, to remember, and to re-evaluate yourselves. Very well. Does that answer the question sufficiently?

Questioner: Yes, it does, for me.

Questioner: Do I understand it right then in the understanding that through your own thoughts and acts of love that you come to realize in your Subconscious that you are a child of God? Is that the way to understanding that?

The Council: Yes. Yes. A very simple answer to the problem, isn't it? Start performing acts of love; start accepting people as they are; and make that a lifestyle; make it a lifestyle. Oh, it is true, there are times that you will have to force yourself to be loving, to be accepting, to do things that are considered charitable or loving. That is not what is important. What is important is that you make it a practice, and as you practice it more and more, you begin to develop that consciousness within the Subconscious, and the more that consciousness is developed, the easier the higher you can reach across that crevasse and touch the conscious you, and once that point, that contact, is made you have come to the end of your journey and your rewards are laid before you.

Questioner: When you made the statement, "the poor and starving are means to the common man's success," are you talking about spiritual success?

The Council: Yes. We hardly would advocate the sorrows and pain of others for financial success of anyone.

Questioner: No, I thought perhaps that you might be referring to that because of man's drive for power is what causes the poor and starving masses. I just wanted to clarify that that is what you were talking about.

The Council: The problem is there are two quests in life, two quests in life: the quest of love and the quest of power. You cannot quest for both. They are the opposite ends of the pole, and one destroys the other. Ultimately, one will win and that is absolute. We feel that it would only be wise to go with the winning side. There are poor in the world, there will be poor in the world, but this is the avenue for the common man to grow spiritually, not at the expense of the poor, but at his own expense. It is an expense that he should joyfully accept. And we are not necessarily talking about financial expense either.

Helping those in Need Part 3

Questioner: First of all, I want to ask if you could tell us why, you say this general condition exists where on the whole mankind has no godly love for himself, why? How did this come about?

The Council: How did it come about? Why does man constantly choose to look into the shadow that he casts from the Light? Why does he choose to look in that direction? Why does he not choose to turn around and look in the direction of the Light? Do you understand what we are saying?

Questioner: I understand the symbolism. As to why, I am not sure.

The Council: It is the nature of man, again, it is the nature of man. The nature of man chooses to see what he can create on his own, instead of choosing to create according to the Will of the Ultimate Creator, the Divine Creator. Instead of joining in with the orchestra, he chooses to play a solo. Unfortunately, he cannot read the musical score. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes. And this leads to an inner dislike for yourself at a higher level?

The Council: Certainly, when you cannot accomplish what you choose to accomplish, then you begin to undermine your own confidence. If there were a simple answer to the situation, we would be more than happy to give it to you, but you are talking about an evolvement of a condition from the beginning of time, from your beginning, and it is not quite so simple even if you could draw a line and point to a particular direction. Each of you are unique individuals and you have walked your own path, so to speak. You have your own unique reason for disliking yourself, and one cannot say it is just one reason why you dislike yourself. It is an accumulation of lifetime after lifetime after lifetime of experiences, we will be kind in using that term, experiences. Do you see?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: Now, if, if you can ever bring yourself up to the point, now, not just consciously, you cannot just positive think your way into correction, it takes that as the initial effort but it also takes a real belief deep down inside. Positive thinking is an attitude of affirmation, but you must allow that to go deep inside; you must allow that to go deep inside. So, one can say, "Yes, I am a child of God; I am a god; I do love because I love myself; I respect myself; I am good." You can say that consciously and you must say that consciously, but you must also drive that deep enough within the Subconscious Mind so that the Subconscious area is totally acceptant of that fact. And the Subconscious is not stupid. It may be neutral to some extent, but it is also very wise. It is a tester; it is a challenger. It is your battlefield of Armageddon. So what you must do at a soul level, you know that you are good, you know that you are made in the likeness of God, you may know that at a conscious level because you have heard it, what you then must do is drive that into the Subconscious level. So one of the ways that man evolves spiritually is to bring a certain conscious awareness to his mind and then work to bring that same awareness effectively into the Subconscious so that all activities of the Subconscious then is colored by that fact or governed by that fact, but in order to do this you must be able then to do loving things, not only physically but mentally. You must be able to think in terms of love, and when we use the term "love" we are talking about an unconditional love, a brotherly love, a love that is not restricted with judgment. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: Now, some people may assume, "Well, if the real problem or the real hurdle is the Subconscious Mind, simple application of hypnosis should be able to make the job easier." Well, superficially, certainly, certainly, for a time, but even after that the real corrector or the real effector will be what you actually do with your own conscious mind and activities. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes. Fix your own plumbing.


The Council: The question is: Why doesn't the plumber do that?

Helping those in Need Part 2

Questioner: In some of the distant countries it would appear that poverty is so general that even that would not be possible.

The Council: True, as things are now. But can you imagine if those countries who are not so blessed were to take care of their own and then rally together and take care of those who need much more help? Do you understand?

Questioner: Okay.

The Council: There is an awareness and there is a condition that exists by man's nature, by man's nature, mind you: A plumber is truly the one whose house needs plumbing work done. A carpenter, his home truly needs carpentry work done. An electrician, his home truly needs electrical work done. Do you understand what we are saying?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: If you understand the reason why such an aspect exists, if you can see why this condition of human nature exists, then you will see the answer to all there is. It is the key to a heaven on earth, yet it is not so impossible or so hard to see or to fathom. A moment's contemplation, a moment's thought, surely should give one the answer as to why it is the plumber's house who needs the plumbing work done. Yet, in most cases, it rarely gets done. If you understand why such a condition exists, why it is the nature of man to allow such a condition to exist, and then once you have that understanding correct the situation, you have perfection or the accomplishment of heaven on earth within your grasp. Does that answer the question sufficiently?

Questioner: Thank you.

Helping those in Need Part 1

This begins a four-part series on how we should pursue efforts to help those in need and why such conditions exist.

Questioner In today's world with communication being what it is, we are aware of literally millions and millions of persons in need and it is difficult to know at what point we jump in because your own resources are not anywhere near what it would take to help every one of them.

The Council: If an individual truly wishes to add to creation, add to the world, improve THE world, then it would be only wise to start first with themselves and their immediate situation. The first essential aspect of each of you is that you must learn to appreciate yourselves, now we are not speaking from an egotistical standpoint. The biggest problem with the world today is that the individuals, the souls, each of you, do not love yourself, you do not respect yourself. If you do not love yourself, you cannot love anything or anyone else, and that is the real problem that lies within creation today. You have lost respect for yourselves. Now, again, we are not talking about an egotistical love. We are talking about a true godly love for yourselves. The opposite would be an egotistical love, and that is the manifestation of the world today. An egotistical love is a destructive love.

Now, back to the point in question. An individual cannot help the world problem; he cannot conquer the problems of the world; but yet he can start a condition of evolvement in the world by simply concentrating on his own immediate situation or position in life. Your world, your country today, seems to want to take care of the problems of the world, the starving of the world. Why can it not concentrate on the starving in their own country first? An individual certainly should have a conscious factor, an awareness factor of the starving and poor of the world. An individual should be aware of that, should have a desire to help, and in some measure should help. But how much more productive and how much more can be accomplished if that individual were to focus in his own life or in the situation that he finds himself, his family, his friends, his neighbors, his community? Take care of your own little world. Help those that need help in your own sphere of existence, and if each person were to do that there would be no need for world-wide help. Do you understand what we are saying?
