William LePar's spiritual source, The Council, tells us that the first step in spiritual development is an active love. With the following statement The Council explains to us some basic attitudes that we should try to establish within ourselves to begin to allow our natural godly love to begin to emanate from our being and in so doing we fortify any additional love that is in or around about us or within the situation that we find ourselves. Through this process we become more aware of the unity that we have with all and in this awareness then we also become aware of our responsibility to continue to promote an even greater awareness of this unity. Through this process we begin to see the flow and existence of God in all things and in ourselves. To add an even greater dimension to this on a personal level, The Council states that through our attitudes and actions in the very simple day-to-day existences we affect not only a positive attitude but the positiveness of all things around us.
“Much development and in fact the only development that an entity can fully make is in the ability to train and work with the physical. And the easiest and quickest way is developing the attitude and the thought. If you constantly keep on your mind your relationship and your responsibility to everybody and everything around you, you will soon be not only a channel for love, but you, will become a booster of that energy or that vibration. You will add to it. We will suggest for you specifically to begin to think in terms of service. Think in terms of service to your fellowmen. If one were to feel as though one's purpose was to be of service and in return through that service become more aware of the unity of man and God, great spiritual development can be expected. The greatest growth that an entity can make is through his day-to-day existence, in the simple little things, in the establishment of a very firm attitude of his existence within the Grace or Love of his God and his existence with his fellow man.”
I must admit to you that this is one of my favorite pieces of information ever given by The Council in the more than 40 years that they have spoken to us. I believe that it states the essence of our purpose for being and puts physical life in its proper perspective. To my way of thinking, it is not what I cannot take with me that is important here. It is what I CAN take with me that makes this quote so meaningful.
“Look about your own existence, your own home. Look at your possessions. What good are they to you? Once you leave the material you cannot take them with you. The only thing one can take with them, when they leave the material manifestation, is the good deeds, the love, and the concern that they have had for others. These are the garlands; these are the jewels. This is the crown that sits upon the head, and this is what you will have to wear when you enter the new world or the new land or the next consciousness, and if you do not have those jewels, those crowns, those garlands, then there are areas which will not be accessible to you, and hopefully, you will have at least one thing that will allow you entrance to that area you truly seek.”
Remember, The Council is not saying that we should not have material possessions. They are not saying that at all. We have a right to all of the wonderful things that this world has to offer. They are saying remember who and what you truly are and what your true purpose in life is: To be the most loving and caring soul that you can be, to be a living image of the Divine Creator of all.
"Spiritual growth is not a way of life that asks you to do without, but it is a way of life that asks you to give so that there is a greater room within to receive. Matter, creation, life, the earth, is in existence because of a consciousness. Your life is in existence because of a consciousness that you have. Matter can be looked upon as the effects and consciousness is the cause. To change your life into something more positive filled with greater joy and peace, change your consciousness ever so little, if that is the best that you can do, and your life will improve, your happiness will be assured, your joy and your peace will be yours."
