Teacher Ophelius: “Today’s message is about the sharing of wisdom. What do I mean by this? Wisdom represents the accumulated experiences of lessons learned -- the result of past events that transformed the mind and shaped the personality from a lesser state of perfection to a greater state of perfection. They are these experiences that are retained as having ‘survival value’ and are so counter-parted by the Indwelling Spirit and added to the growing embryo -- the developing soul of the individual. It is this growing soul-child that will mature and become the personality of who you really are in the next phase of your ascension on the training worlds of your local system -- the seven mansion worlds. Through the sharing of wisdom with your fellows, you may accelerate your maturity by avoiding the pitfalls of hard lessons through the recognition of situations and events, and taking right actions based on the translated experiences of others. “Shared wisdom is the preparation for exploiting opportunities that bring value and transformation of consciousness. It is the process of sharing valuable life changing information directly from person to person or indirectly from media to person. Books are a wonderful source of shared wisdom as is the message you are reading now. Not all information or knowledge is shared wisdom; only those translated experiences that help others to grow in some way may be considered shared wisdom and may be recognized as belonging to one or more of three categories: Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. “Media overload, and the transmission of fear through news outlets and other forms of entertainment are of no eternal value and will be left behind with the flesh. Think about those wonderful moments of discovery -- those ‘ah-ha’ moments you have when speaking with friends or by learning something from a transformational book. They are these kinds of experiences and use of the time you have in this life that should be maximized, with less time spent on useless preoccupations having little or no value. “You must all work, play, eat, and sleep -- those things are done for the maintenance of the mind and physical body. However, for those students on the path, a system of priorities must be created that facilitates the needed time for the gathering of shared wisdom as well as for the sharing of wisdom with others. Think about how much time you spend during your week learning and sharing wisdom. Now think about how much time you spend gathering useless information and entertainments that add no value or growth potential. Is there an imbalance there? For there to be maximized soul growth and progress, there must be balance. “If you are out of balance my friends, the pendulum will sooner or later swing the other way in the form of a life lesson that is designed to bring balance to your life and re-start the soul growing process. The sharing of wisdom can be a positive way to stimulate soul growth rather than through the negative ‘hard knocks’ of life. Communicate; cooperate; learn and share.
