Avenue of the GiantsI had a student ask me a question about religion and belief concerning the Akashics.  They had been called to minister in a religion and had done so for decades. Then, through experiences, events and thought, had found they no longer believed what they had been teaching. They felt confused and betrayed. They didn’t know what to think about their calling.  And they were struggling with feeling like they had been wrong therefor wasting years of their life and now wanted to know how would they be forgiven. They were perplexed about what this did to their Karma and what did the Akashics have to say.

The amount of preconceived notions and assumptions in the entire conversation made my head spin a bit.  What about living a spiritual life is a waste?  Having a calling and following it?  What about that is wrong or a mistake if you ‘harm none’?  (Let’s leave aside psychosis, serial killers and psychopaths for a moment, if you don’t mind.)  It seems that the assumption is that one path is ‘right’ and others are ‘wrong’ and so too our actions based on that assumption and what path we’re following.  Also there seems to be a preconceived notion that the Akashics is a place of judgement and authority and that some kind of punishment or reckoning was being formulated there.  With a bit of Karma mixed in.

So after settling my spinning head I tried to tease all this apart and start laying aside the assumptions and giving a different perspective on things.  First, I have found no evidence that there is only one right path to Spirit or that we need to travel a path to Spirit (insert whatever word you wish to use for the numinous or source or deity).  In working with the Akashics I have seen that religion and spirituality are just one experience among a multitude that helps us learn and grow and become on our own unique trajectory to becoming the best person/soul that we can be.  Also, the process of becoming is the point, not how we get there. Everything we do is a teachable moment that helps us learn and develop and become.  Having a calling in one decade and moving on to something else another isn’t an indication of a mistake or a failure nor is it an indictment of one religion or spirituality over another.  It’s like rings in a tree, an indication of growth and change that reflects the environment the tree experienced and how it responded.

Does the Akashics see all this happening?  Yep.  Does it care?  Yes and no.  There’s no judgement involved, just love and support for the growth process.  Beings working within the Akashics may or may not be involved in helping the soul with this process, but the Akashics itself is not keeping score, not making judgements and not handing out punishments or rewards.  As for Karma, again, not a score sheet or a reckoning.  It’s about the learning process.  If you need to learn about something, you will have an opportunity to do so at some point in your existence.  It may be this lifetime, it may be another. It’s about growing as an individual.  Figuring out what you have to learn and doing the easy and hard and in between things to develop into more of your potential, which may mean suffering and may mean joy and hopefully, at some point means a bit of happiness.
