“Greetings, my dear ones! Some people misuse spirituality by trying to feel better or superior to others. Some people make spirituality into something it is not, and will never be – a consumer item. Because these people tell others what they have to do to become spiritual or enlightened.
They make them believe that you have to do certain things or attend seminars to become spiritual. In the worst case, they even make others dependent on them. They portray themselves as the only ones who know the way into spiritual mastership, and others have to follow them.
These are intrigues of the old energy on a low level. They haven’t got anything to do with what you call ‘enlightenment’. All sorts of dependencies are to be dismissed! They deprive others of their chance to discover and develop themselves and, most of all, to take responsibility for themselves. Like a flock of sheep trotting behind their leader: if the leader turns left, all the sheep go left, if the leader turns right, all the animals follow. If the ‘sheep’ are humans, we call it spiritual dependency.
Other spiritual teachers manipulate their followers through fear: with fear of failure, fear of abuse of power, fear of not being spiritual enough, or fear of illness or strokes of fate. Recognize that spirituality is inside you. It has been part of you through different ages, and you have brought it into this life.
The only thing a spiritual teacher can teach you is the ability to discover and awaken your spirituality. Then he has done a good job. Keep remembering this, especially if you are accompanying other people on their path of spiritual development. I am happy to support you in your ability to distinguish! I am the Angel for Responsible Spirituality.”
