Developing a Closer Relationship to Our God

In this quote from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, they explain how we can develop a closer relationship with our God. In this quote, for those of the Christian belief system they mention Jesus. The Council has always recognized the other major belief systems. In this case they are speaking to an audience that is Christian so they speak in terms that those in attendance can relate to. The Council refers to all major belief systems as offering those in that system the best opportunity for their spiritual growth.

The Council: At first, it might be advisable to ask yourself what kind of relationship do you want and do you expect with your Creator. The closer you are to your Creator, the more intimate a relationship you have with Him and the more subtle it is, the more you are apt to view others as part of your own family. You begin to develop a greater relationship with your God by developing a greater sensitivity to those around you. In this process then you become plagued with many questions, many concerns, many crossroads of "Well, is this right or is that right? Should I do this or should I not do that?" And at times, it takes a great deal of effort and honesty to look beyond just the simple question, "Is this right? or is that wrong?" and see what it truly serves.


Right and wrong. There are definite rights and wrongs, let us put it this way, but you become more aware of those rights and wrongs in relationship to your understanding of them and regardless of how you may consciously be aware of what is right and what is wrong, it is still that inner understanding, and that inner understanding then is increased as the relationship between you and God increases. The greatest bridge between you and your actual Infinite Father is Christ. The attitudes that Jesus demonstrated should be attitudes that you make an honest or an earnest effort in achieving or developing. To have too great of an expectation for yourself, in other words having the attitude of "I will be able to do this and I will be able to do that and I will do this and I will do that" sometimes is a sign of egotism, which is a horrendous stumbling block in all spiritual growth. The attitude is that I will try, but if I fail, I will get up and try again because success in spirituality is determined by two things and that is, when one fails, he gets back up and starts over again, and that he is willing to realize that in some areas his true success and true accomplishment lies in always being able to get back up and start over again. To be truthful to yourself is important, to realize that there are things that you will be able to accomplish, but there are things that you will not be able to accomplish. Be willing to subdue the destructive, self-serving ego and many times this is hidden in self-righteous attitudes that individuals show. Subdue that, control it, and allow the more productive self-esteem to come to the surface and govern your life, self-respect. So if you can control the ego and allow the self-esteem, the self-respect, to come to the surface, to be willing to accept that when you fall in an effort, you must pick yourself back up and start over or start from wherever point you are. Those are the two elements of true spiritual growth. To give you a simple line of direction to follow is not our right to do. We have given you guidelines.

Learning Begins at the Moment of Conception

William LePar's spiritual source, The Council gave us a large amount of information about the mind and the processing that goes on in all the different levels of our being. This is one of their comments on how we learn from the moment of conception.


The Council: The foundations that a baby, you must remember that a child does not begin to learn at the moment of birth. A child begins to learn at the moment of conception. Now, grant you that we have said that there are times when there is not a spirit entity in the fetus, and this can vary, you know what we are talking about, but as a general rule, assuming that there is a spirit entity at the moment of conception and on through birth, that entity is formulating right from the moment of conception. In the very early years of a baby, from the moment of birth, now even though the learning process has begun from the moment of conception, it is viewed entirely different, it is viewed from an individual point of experience once the child is born. As it is in the mother's womb, its experiences are viewed in relationship or in close relationship with the mother. In other words, the mother is cradling the child so what it learns while it is in the womb is learned in a very secure atmosphere. Once the child is born, then it is learning on its own and from exterior experiences. Its mode of learning while in the womb is naturally learning on its own but also not from exterior experiences but learned from exterior and interior experiences. Now, this may be hard to understand because you, in your presently conscious mind cannot conceive existing in the womb unless you were to have regression to that point and allowed to recall that, but it is an entirely different perception of learning.

A Glorified Body

In this quote from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, we receive some great advice on how we can reach our highest spiritual potential here and now.


The Council: All those who are in the material manifestation now. If you want a glorified body, if you want a spiritual body, such as talked about in the Bible, develop your character according to the present belief system. Now your character is not what you manifest on the outside. Your character is made up of your intentions, and your intentions are made up of your affections or your love. That is why you are told to love yourself in a godly manner, and that is the first step. Forget your spiritual guilt; forget that you have separated yourself from the Divine Father and think only of your return. Realize that you are separated and realize that now you can continually separate yourself from the Divine by your actions. Change that desire to re-unite yourself with the Divine and begin on a conscious level to develop those affections that you know are godly. In so doing when you consciously put an effort forward, the soul in itself even through its guilt knows its rightful place, but in this guilt it seeks, because of the guilt, to move itself away as a form of punishment, as a form of, shall we say, being ashamed of the rejection of Total Love, so it is a self-chastisement which is not necessary. On the conscious level, change your affections to godly ways of action in service to mankind. Your soul in its very essence is constantly trying to break through the guilt but you must help it. You are given guidance, you are given help by the Divine through your relationships in the material manifestation. The stronger help the weaker. If you have one facet of your personality that is weak, there will be someone around you that has that facet strong, and they will attempt to influence you into activity or into strength, if you allow it. But what happens in most cases is that when you see the strength in others that is lacking in you, then your tendency is to move away from that individual because in that process you are made more aware of your shortcomings. If you truly loved yourself as you should first, then you would learn from those and try to develop the same strengths.

What it is Like in the Realm Closest to the Divine's Realm

William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, explain what it is like to exist in their realm. This is the realm just before souls merge with God in His heavenly realms. In this quote The Council makes reference to sound. They say that sound in the spiritual realms is not related to sound as we know it, however, that is the best word that they can use because our vocabulary does not have a word or group of words that would describe it accurately.

The Council: We review all the times that we were in the man-made realms, and we review our activities in the God-made realms at the Spirit Level and at the Angelic Level; so we exist now in the Celestial Level going over our selfishness, and how we debased ourselves, how we insulted ourselves, how we humiliated ourselves; these glorious beings created by the Hand of God, each one of us, individually, how we humiliated ourselves, how we insulted ourselves. We begin to learn to take a godly pride in ourselves. We begin to appreciate the handiwork of God our Father; and in this godly pride we choose to glorify our Father, our Lord, by our actions which in turn then glorifies us. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: So it becomes an unending cycle or chain of events. As we first enter the Celestial Level, as an example, we may appear as a fog, a soft, white fog; this is as we just enter. And as our existence and our experience here passes and grows, that white fog begins to glow; it begins to move a little quicker; it begins to lighten up the area in which it is, the surrounding area; and the greater we appreciate the creation of the Divine, the brighter we begin to glow, until such time that that fog is glowing completely. From that point then it begins to lose its, shall we say, limited appearance. Instead of being contained in a quote "shape" the light begins to glow in rays. Do you understand?

Questioner: I think so. To some extent.

The Council: Have you ever seen the lights of a car at night, how they appear to be rays?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: Very well. As we grow then this solid light begins to change into rays of lights. As it continues then these rays become almost crystalline in appearance. Do you understand?

Questioner: I think so, yes.

The Council: So that once we have achieved that point where we are almost ready to merge with the Godhead, we appear as a polished crystal made up of an uncountable number of rays, spreading all that we have in all directions to all who will accept; and so we are suspended in this Cause of God the Father waiting to be utilized, waiting to share, waiting to move that much closer to Him.

Questioner: The form that you spoke of that you are in now. Is that much
as the original creation by God?

The Council: When we merge with our Father, we will change from this
crystalline stage or state as we described it, now it is symbolic.
Do you understand?

***: Yes.

The Council: When we change from this state to the actual mergence with the
Godhead, with God the Father, then this crystalline description
that we have given you, this crystalline stage, will transmute into
sound, into pure thinking energy that lives and creates and that is
the sound, the living and the creating in unison with the Creator
of all.

***: Thank you. Of course, I don't understand.

The Council: Sound is the energy or the power of creation of God; it is God.

Our Spiritual Power



William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, has attempted to give us some idea of the magnitude of the spiritual being that each of us are in our true, non-physical state of existence. I felt that this particular quote might be a good example. As I have mentioned before, The Council attempts to paint pictures in the mind's eye because our vocabulary is not sufficient to explain the infinite in finite terms.

The Council: An example: you have all seen an explosion of an atomic bomb, that is barely a flick of your eyelash in power that you, you alone, have. One fleeting thought could destroy or create all the universe that man has, each of you, in less than a fleeting thought in your truest existence. The magnitude of your own being is so tremendous that there are no physical words to describe. If all the suns in the universe were gathered together in one central spot, that would hardly be a breath from the true power that you have, and look at what you have done to yourself. You cannot even comprehend in words one speck of your totality. No example that we give you will you be able to comprehend, and that is just you, just each of you; now the Divine is a Being that is far, far greater than you. In comparison, you are less than a flick of the eyelid, and it was your refusal to accept this Divine life, your refusal to move ahead to create in a forward motion, your refusal to continue to create in awareness, you took it upon yourself to see fit to having to prove it to a lesser form that was created for your use.

The Divine Inflow

In this posting William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, talks about the life energy that we are receiving from our Divine Father on a constant basis.

Questioner: In the beginning, at the time of the Fall, it was necessary to tap into God for our essence to create, and, if so, is it still necessary, are we still dependent on that?

The Council: Most assuredly, you are still dependent on it. Now, what example could we give that would be easily understood? Suppose you were to take the, shall we say, electrical system of a home, now you have a wire from your power company coming to your home, and it goes into the house to a master box and from that box then you have all sorts of other wires that run here and there, you may cut off any of the other wires and the rest will work properly. Or from the point of that wire that you cut off beyond the cut-off point anything up to that would run, anything beyond that would not. As long as the main line comes into the house, there is life in the house, there is electricity; but suppose that you did not sever any of the smaller lines but severed the main line that came into the house, what would you have running that used electricity in the house then, nothing. In some way you could apply this example to the connection you have with the Divine; you see, you were acts of love and these acts of love, although you may consider them to be tremendous beings (in your physical mind, of course, you cannot truly comprehend) but in the spiritual awareness, each of you was a tremendous ball of energy that was formed and developed, but this energy was in its very, shall we say, fetus stage, so that it constantly needed nourishment for its further growth, much as a mother carries a child, as long as the child is within her womb, she must feed that child and it is the same with you, your Divine Father constantly fed you for your growth. Before you were fully matured where you could, shall we say, go your own way, under your own steam, you decided to cut the umbilical cord, well, actually, you can never do that but we are using symbols or figurative speaking.

Since you decide to sever the umbilical cord, you had not fully matured so as it stands now you have severed only part of that cord, so that the full intensity of your godly awareness is not yours, that is by choice. You cannot exist if you sever that cord completely, for that which feeds you would not be there, and eventually you would, so to speak, burn yourself out: the same in the heavens, there are suns that grow in intensity but in time they burn themselves out, and they no longer exist. Now, each of you are still babes: you are still in your mother's womb; and the Divine is still feeding you; giving you the nourishment that you so justly need for your existence.

Think of it in another way. God is the living essence of all that is created spiritual and material, and as this essence you simply feed off of it, you are suspended in this ocean of love, in this universe of love, you are similar to a beautiful goldfish in a bowl, but a bowl that is so tremendous that it encompasses all that is ever and ever will be created, and each of you are capable of having your own universe to work in. You cannot live or exist in any place without touching the life-giving love of the Infinite Father. As a beautiful piece of needlepoint or tapestry is developed, it is first constructed from a backing, the stitches are placed very precisely in certain places in this backing, and as time progresses then a beautiful picture is formed and the backing is completely covered. You are the beautiful stitches; the backing that holds those stitches together is the Divine: that is the basis of the tapestry, the stitches are of no value without the backing, but the backing has a value for anyone else who wishes to apply their stitches to it. The foundation is always the necessity.

Biorhythms and the Physical Body - Part 2

This is a continuation of the interchange between a questioner from our Research and Study Group and William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, on the subject of biorhythms and there usefulness to us.

Questioner: Suppose you had a big decision to make or some kind of action. Would it be a good idea to check your chart and maybe time things for when you have what they call for a triple high or perhaps on triple low days put off some decisions until you are thinking better. Would that be a valid use for a chart like that?

The Council: If you choose to use a chart like that, yes, but you must use a little, how shall we say, common sense or a little discernment. You cannot rely on a cycle or a chart to make every decision or to avoid making decisions all the time. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: The chart or the cycles represent the overall keenness. Do you understand that?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: How sharp you are or how keen you are? Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: And this, of course, incorporates the three major aspects of you. Now, how strongly you are influenced by those cycles is mostly determined by you, this is in reference to exterior activities. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes, I understand.

The Council: So, we are not saying that they are an essential thing that everybody should have. Yet we are saying that they do exist; they do influence you, and they can be used to help you, if nothing else, understand the way you are feeling at a particular time. They are important in this respect. They are part of the natural cycles of the material manifestation which you are a part of. They do influence, to a degree, the chemical reactions within the body, the intensity of those reactions and the lack of that intensity. Now, this again is another relationship to maintaining the material manifestation for the soul or maintaining the tool for the soul. When you come into the material manifestation, the soul must create a body that is compatible with the natural cycles of the material world or the material manifestation, and it just so happens that those are three cycles that most directly influence the exterior you, in other words, your relationship to your immediate world at that particular time or your immediate family or your immediate activities. Have we confused the situation or cleared it up?

Questioner: You have cleared it up.

The Council: Again, they can be useful but we would never say that spiritual growth depends on such a thing. Before you ever heard of such things, you were living a life. If you feel that after you have heard of such things it would help you to have a better day, understand your day a little better, then by all means use it. But you must realize that there are well over a hundred more cycles involved.

Questioner: I assume that these three are the more or less major cycles.

The Council: Well, it depends on what you want to consider as major. They would have the most outward effect on your day-to-day experiences.

Questioner: Would there be any other cycle of equal or greater benefit to
include in a biorhythm chart?

The Council: No, because they go down in graduated physical outward effects, so they become more subtle than what the three major rhythms or what is considered the major rhythms. Those can be used the most easily in understanding your day or your attitude for that day.

Questioner: Would this be a beneficial use of biorhythms, if you are looking for whatever spiritual benefits there are in fasting, if you are looking for these benefits, would it be a good use of biorhythms to begin a fast on a triple high? Would that help any in the fasting effort?

The Council: No. Listen to what we have said. It does not directly influence your spiritual state whatsoever. It does give you an understanding of your attitude toward a particular event at a particular time in your life. In other words, how did you receive today? How did you react to today?

Questioner: I reacted pretty good today.

The Council: Well, whatever. We are trying to point out how it could be
used.

Questioner: Would it be all right to use the information you just gave us then as somewhat of an introduction to the charts that we make?


The Council: As long as you understand that you are not to confuse the biorhythm idea or concept with spirituality. You can be very spiritual on a very bad day. In fact, now that we think about it, maybe on an indication of a bad day you might practice a little charity towards your fellow human being. A good way to build up points. (Laughter) All joking aside now. As long as you do not attempt to sell spirituality through such devices, they can be beneficial to those who have an interest in them, but they cannot guarantee any spiritual growth at all. They are more aligned with the natural rhythms of the material manifestation.
