And just like that, you died. said Metatron as he looked forward, and with a wave of his hand, he opened the clouds.
The archangel showed me four humans and two aliens from a far away world. Looking at them and reading their history from the Library of Akasha, I realized they were all in the process of learning the same lessons I did as a zar’tar.
Just like that… I replied and then smiled. My love for Vana made me forget everything around me and seek vengeance like a madman. I let it stain my heart and soul. I let it make me blind to all those around me! I clenched the hilt of the Sword of Fire.
At the same time, you wouldn’t have survived if you didn’t do that. I believe it was your strong desire for revenge that played a crucial role in your survival. It pushed you over the edge and allowed you to fight against all odds. From an El’zir, you became a Tir’shiar coupled with a zelvidra’darnashar. said Metatron, trying to comfort me.
I knew he was right, but I also understood the subtle message of his words, the lesson I had learned back then.
But in keeping such a desire in my heart, it sickened me, and when I should have given up on it as my couple asked me to, I didn’t… Vana’s last wish, I couldn’t fulfill it, and I realized that, only as I stood dying there, on that blood-drenched battlefield. Her last words were meant for me. She wanted me to find happiness after I lost her… She gave me the most prized gift I could ever have received back then, the true love of my couple, my wife… In my stubbornness, I refused it and with it, her love. I was the one who chose the path of darkness and revenge, the one who opened up the Star of the Earth under my feet to let the demons enter in my life and claim the love in my heart. I said with a sad tone in my voice.
Remembering those past times wasn’t easy for me. No matter how detached I became from those memories, as an Ask’odar, I always found myself overwhelmed with all of those intense emotions and sensations I felt during those moments.
You learned what venomous bite revenge has. Even if Elshra loved you to the bitter end, you didn’t return those feelings which she deserved so much. You didn’t even offer such love to your own luks. You were a stranger in a family who loved and cherished you. Revenge made you a fool and a blind man. said Metatron with a soft sigh on his lips.
Judging from his words, I understood he was no stranger to this lesson. Even an archangel as great and pure as him went through similar experiences in his past. But neither of us regretted those lives. For each of us, they were filled with the lessons we desired and needed to learn in order to evolve and grow further into the beings of lights which we would come to be.
In this life, I learned about revenge as well as what it means to keep a single love in your heart for your entire life. I learned many things besides those.
Tell me, Michael. What do you think of how mankind nurtures their young? asked Metatron.
I looked up at him and raised an eyebrow. I was just about to ask what he meant by that, but then it hit me.
I knew that a child usually felt the joy and various emotions of those around him much better than the adults could. Depending on the species, those emotions were dampened or enhanced. Humans were about so-so. They had moments when they were as emotional as a brick and others when they melted off like sugar in a coffee, especially if you were to take as an example an individual in the year 1986. However, they were a growing and fast evolving species. With each passing year, they became stronger empaths, feelers of emotions. That’s why as a parent they had to be extra careful with what sort of energies and emotions they gave out around their child because each and every one of them would affect him greatly. A child’s development was influenced by these energies in ways they could barely come to understand.
Thinking about this, I looked back at the people on Earth and saw their evolution from the year 1986 AD to the year 2455 AD. The good part about being an Ask’odar was the ability to work outside of time.
Around the year 2000 AD they were babies when it came to emotions, but by the year 2300 AD, they could control them by will and not let themselves be controlled by them. It was one of those major attributes that allowed them to evolve into a better society. I said.
Although there were some who cast off their emotions and tried to become another subspecies. noted Metatron.
I nodded. He was right about that, but when you think about, what’s the purpose of casting off emotions? You only cast off what you feared or believed you couldn’t fix, but evolution wise, you could clearly see that emotions have been given as a gift to mankind. Without them, both their society and technology could have never reached the point of evolution in the year 2455 AD. Humans understood that the purpose of emotions wasn’t to cast off emotions, but to reach that point in self-evolution where they could harness and use them without letting themselves be controlled by them. When they wanted to feel love, they could feel it, not act upon it like a machine. What would even be the point in that?
I know, and I guess that’s why I’m glad they managed to figure out that very simple truth regarding child raising. I said.
By the year 2020 AD, this slowly began to turn into an instinct every new young mother had. The mass consciousness law, right? said Metatron.
Yes. I replied as I thought about such a simple truth.
The idea behind it was quite simple. All mankind had to do was take notice that when a parent smiled with joy at their child, he would smile back, but not because he desired to copy their movements, but because the child felt emotion and replied accordingly. Showing him a mean or angry expression without even putting any sort of emotion behind it was met with no reaction or maybe just an innocent giggle. The moment the parent filled that expression with the fitting emotion, the child ended up scared or even started to cry. The people around the child made his world a happy or a scary place. As such, the child would grow and learn to do the same once he became a parent. However, it was also true that every child’s reactions could end up being different, but they would always react in positive ways to positive emotions and negative ways to negative emotions. Basically, the parents were able to properly guide his growth using this knowledge.
Look, someone is contacting me. I’m going to go speak with them. Do you wish to join me? asked archangel Metatron as he pointed at an open cloud showing a woman in deep meditation somewhere in the year 2016.
Not a coincidence, I guess. You waited for this moment, right? I asked with a smile.
The archangel nodded. There are no coincidences in this world, only actions driven by our free will. he told me.
I agreed and followed him to the plane of mortals once more.
We shortly after arrived in small room, decorated with all sort of shamanistic and African sculptures. The woman was of dark skin color, and I could sense through the vibration of her soul that she was worried about something. She was confused and at the same time concerned.
Please, help me! she prayed to us.
I’m here child, speak. said Metatron as he spread out his wings. The purpose was to calm the woman down and let her speak of her worry and desires.
My husband wants a child, but I don’t know if I am suited to raise one. I’m always busy with one thing or another. Tell me, archangel Metatron, what am I to do? she asked.
Do you love your child? he asked.
The woman blinked surprised, but I understood why he asked such a thing.
But I am not pregnant yet… or am I? she asked confused.
You are not, but you may be in the future. Tell me, do you love your child? the archangel asked again.
I… I do. If I had a child yes, I would love him. she replied.
So since he is not born, you do not love him? he asked.
I… erm… I don’t know what to say. I think I do. she tried to answer, but it was clear the matter was very confusing.
Looking at her, I knew why she was like this. It was not an easy question to answer to. As a mother, she had to be prepared to love her child from the moment she began to make love with her husband, and the same could be said about him. Both of them needed to share and feel this love they had for their yet to be born child. It was the first condition that set in motion all the events needed for the two of them to eventually have a child, be it theirs or adopted.
In the end, Metatron explained this very thing to her.
Love your child and let it matter not if he is conceived now or later. If he will be yours or adopted. Your desire and wish for him shall manifest its existence. the archangel said.
I understand… When I desire a child, I must be able to love him from day one and not worry if I am ready or not. Through my love, I shall make all the changes needed in my life to prepare me for his arrival. said the woman with tears in her eyes.
She then looked at me and asked me Any advice you can give, archangel Michael?
I closed my eyes for a moment and then nodded.
Surround your child with love, and the child shall offer love back. Believe in him that he will grow strong, and so it shall be. Accept him as he is, and his true self he shall be. You are the guide he asked for in this world. You shall be his mother, his guardian, his friend. In this life, he asked for your guidance out of all the other possible mothers out there, so make sure to treasure your child. I replied.
Maybe it was a bit of an ambiguous reply or maybe not, if she asked for another, I would guide her further.
Thank you, archangel Metatron! Thank you, archangel Michael! she said.
We both smiled at her and retreated from her sight. The meditation was over, and she was happy with the advice she received. Now, she would know what to do and how to step forward in the world of parenthood.
I remember that as a young luks, my father was harsh when he tried to teach me. I learned through that experience that we must never give up on our children and neither as children should we give up on our parents, no matter the age… We have to try little by little to help each other out. I said as I looked through a cloud a year later and saw the woman holding her first born. She was so happy, so delight to be able to hold that small bundle of joy in her gentle arms. The little one, as expected, was also pleased to have a mother like her.
Humans, in time, learned that they needed to help their children, but not force and impose their own will upon them because that way, they would only feel oppressed. They would rebel eventually, especially if the parents didn’t explain properly why they must do it their way. said Metatron as he showed me an image of a time after the year 2100 AD when there was no mother out there who was forced by society to go through abortion, but instead could happily enjoy giving birth and nurturing the life within her womb. Of course, medically necessary abortions were still done, but even then they were an extreme situation. The fetus was either dead or continuing the labor would risk killing both him and his mother.
It’s beautiful when society encourages the mother to give birth and doesn’t shun her away for being pregnant or the way she ended up like that. All children must be loved and given a chance to live. As long as we can, we must give our best to offer them a chance to live. That is God’s law. I said with a sigh.
Yes, but back then, there were many souls who wanted to go through such an experience. This was the case for both parents and children. said Metatron.
I have to admit that when you looked at it from this point of view, everything made sense. All the deaths, all the killings, all the suffering, everything made sense when you realized that it was actually them who desired to learn through suffering those lessons in life. Weird and for some, it may have been common sense, but all the common sense in the world was actually built up by the soul after learning such things. Society evolved, common sense as well, so why not souls?
I remembered something Archangel Raphael once told me. I said with a smile.
About the children? asked Metatron.
Yes. He said that as parents, when we see them do good, we must acknowledge that even if it’s something little. We have to tell them that we are proud or happy about it. Now, if they do something bad, we have to tell them that it was bad, but also tell them why it was so and in a way he can actually understand it, otherwise, we are speaking two different languages. I explained.
That is basically it for non-telepathic species. said Metatron.
Took me a while in my past reincarnations to figure that one out. I noted with a smile and remembered of the many times I got scolded by my parents for things I intentionally or unintentionally did.
Humans developed this part of their common sense quite fast. noted Metatron.
Interesting that the same rules apply to teaching in schools. I said.
Metatron nodded and then showed me a teaching class and a parenting class at the same time. We could see them both since our perception was quite different when compared to that of a human.
In both cases, the teachers were saying the same things, word by word actually.
“Speaking to them in a way they know what effects their actions will have upon their world will make them understand faster. However, remember that they are still children and thus prone to mistakes even adults are… so try to be a little reasonable with them and attempt to always see things from their point of view while explaining yours. They don’t know much or anything yet about this subject, but this doesn’t mean you need to stuff the information into their heads. Be gentle when you explain it. Take your time and repeat it as many times as its needed.” said the two teachers.
I smiled and then looked at Metatron.
What are you trying to teach me now? I asked.
You already know. he replied with a smile. I need to leave you now. It was nice talking with you. he said and then flew off.
Thank you, Archangel Metatron, it was nice talking with you too. I replied politely.
After he left, I watched those scenes one more time out of curiosity if I perhaps missed anything important.
