An Interview about Human Destiny ~ Questions by Kristina Gailiute and Answered By Brad Austen

*What guides our destiny?’ Is it important nowadays?

It is our soul that ultimately guides our destiny, but also our ego personality and free-will choices plays a part in our life.  For many of us our soul is only a faint whisper unless we learn to quiet our mind and go within.  One way of doing this is through meditation. 

We also have a team of spirit guides that guide us on our journey in life.  We have free will, which is a gift, but there are universal laws such as cause and effect that allow us to experience the results from our choices and actions.  We can then reflect on the choices we have made.  If we aren’t happy with the outcome we can strive to make wiser choices in the future.

*Was this important in ancient worlds/cultures? Is it known if more cultures believed in fate or more of them believed in God?

Throughout human history many cultures have believed in a God or a higher power.  This is why many religions and spiritual groups have formed over the centuries.  As a collective we have felt separate from God or source and have searched for God outside of ourselves.  The truth is that we all have an aspect of God/spirit within.  By going within that inner voice becomes strengthened and can have a greater impact in our life.  Spiritual awakening is usually a gradual process that happens over many years, however sometimes if you have an accident or an out of body experience the awakening can be quickened.

*What actually controls/influences our lives?

This is quite a complex question as there are many factors that influence our lives.  On a soul level we choose everything, what we perceive as good and bad experiences for our spiritual growth.  On a human level we may not be aware of this and may feel a victim of circumstance.  The other factor is our free will; we may or may not make the highest choices in our life and often have to experience the consequences.  This is after all how we learn.

Before we are born we plan our lives, what we wish to experience for our growth and what circumstances we wish to have to support our learning.  On a soul level, we choose our parents and siblings to learn certain lessons to support our soul growth.

*How do these factors (mentioned in previous question) influence our lives? Maybe there are some examples?

For example in one life you may choose to be born into a poor family.  This life has the opportunity to teach you about poverty where you may strive to learn about inner resourcefulness and the desire to excel to provide enough for you and your family.

In another life having learnt those spiritual qualities you may wish to have an easier lifetime by being born into a wealthy family, where everything is provided for you to excel at life to the best of your ability.  Both lifetimes provide a contrast and opportunities for you to grow and evolve as a soul.



*Can people ‘move mountains’ (not literally of course) without help of God or other ethereal being/beings or cosmic energy?

We all have the power to create positive change in our lives.  The universe responds to us via our thoughts, words and actions.  We all have intuition, but it is always our choice whether we listen to it or not.  By nurturing that connection, our intuition can become stronger as we connect with our spirit and higher self.  One way of doing this is via meditation; meditation raises our vibration and allows us to connect to receive guidance on a regular basis.


*Why do bad or good things happen to people? What are the causes/reasons?

On a higher level, there isn’t good or bad, just experience and lessons.  It is natural to question God or your faith when going through a bad time; it is completely human to do so.  However if you can look at the situation from a higher perspective you will gain clarity and understanding about the situation.  It is about shifting your reality from a victim mentality to an empowered mentality.  Bad things sometimes happen to good people, but we always have a choice how we respond to it.  There are many factors in our lives that aren’t in our control, at the end of the day; we can only really control our thoughts, words and actions.  We can however influence others positively or negatively.

*Do you believe in Karma and how does it work?

I do believe in karma, which is cause and effect thus whatever we put out we get back.  If we put out a lot of negative energy it eventually comes back to us.  If we put out a lot of positive energy that also comes back to us in different forms.  We are powerful beings, so it is wise to focus on the positive things in our lives, rather than what is wrong or lacking in our lives.

*Do you believe in success/luck? What is the role in our lives?

I believe we create our own success and luck in life.  Success can be looked at from many perspectives, from a purely financial perspective, from having loving family and friends, to loving what you do and having freedom in your life.  You can be successful at quitting smoking or quitting drinking or some detrimental habit.  What we perceive as luck is usually a result of some good energy you put out that has come back to reward you.

*Why do some of us achieve important goals and others struggle? What are the main obstacles or triggers to achieve the goal?

We are all unique beings with a unique life path.  We are also eternal beings having a temporarily human experience.  In some difficult lifetimes it can prompt us to expand and achieve goals and aspirations.  If we have an easier lifetime, there is a risk we may become a bit aloof or lazy.  We also have the choice in life whether we take an easier or rockier road.  With each life we also come into the lifetime with certain skills and talents from past lives, these can be further developed which makes it easier to excel in these areas.



*There are people who think that events that we call mistakes rally aren’t mistakes at all, that they are just directions or attempts to save a person’s life. For example, someone is going to an important business meeting but gets stuck in a traffic jam. During that a terrible fire starts in the building where the meeting was about to take place. What do you think about that?


I don’t really believe in mistakes, no matter what choice we make in life we learn something from it.  It’s only in hindsight we may view our choices as a mistake.  There are lower and higher outcomes based on our choices and actions.  To answer your question, if there was a danger to a particular life, spirit can intervene with something like a traffic jam to place you are out of harms way, if it isn’t your time to leave the planet.

I asked  Peter Melchizedek about all this and here is what he said:

Dear Kerrie,

There are so many different versions of who is what and where is who and in the overall scheme of things all in fact are held within the unity of the God Consciousness or the Prime Creation where Everything that is Eternal is a part of The God Collective.  The singularity of these energies yet all encompassing as One, are the various levels of consciousness.  In Truth God does not speak to humanity or should I say human beings, yet He has created an intermediate Energy that is what is called the Voice of God.  This Energy or consciousness is within each human being and it the direct connection we have to The Prime Creator (God).  This is the Holy Spirit.  When we talk about the Holy Trinity we refer to God the Father, God the Son (Being humanity which He Created in His likeness) and God the Holy Spirit (The Voice that connects the Son with the Father).

Some refer to our Higher Self/Guardian Angel/Double Ganger as the Holy Spirit, yet in my understanding this is not quite right.  Each of us carry individual genetic profiles that make up the different levels of our consciousness which in reality relate to our various levels of attainment within the overall Presence within Creation of God.  Whereas the Holy Spirit seems to be the same Voice for all the Sons of God because it is in Truth, God.  The Holy Spirit aspect of God understands the workings of us humans and the manifestations and belief programs of our egos, whereby God does not actually intervene or more to the point does not acknowledge these aspects of our evolutionary process for if he did this would have Him see us as separate, and because He Knows we are not, therefore He simply holds Us in our Perfected state as he made us.  That is why He sent the Holy Spirit to become our Saviour and the Redeemer to help us find our way back to the Godhead. The Holy Spirit in Truth is our only way back to God!

The soul on the other hand is your core consciousness, it is the grounding aspect of your being. It has two components. The personalized soul sometimes called the Jiva, that recycles through time on our cosmic journey and it is the place within us that registers all our Karma, memory and desire.  The Soul is the Essence of why we are here, it is the part that is evolving.  Many think that it is the body.  It is not!  The body is just the vehicle that the Soul uses for the experiences of the evolutionary journey.  The body comes and goes and is not eternal. The Soul is eternal!  There are three parts to the Soul the part that registers the Earth life, a greater part that is the intermediate aspect between the body Soul and the Universal Soul.

Everything we do on Earth is part of the fear and love experience, the mis-creative and the creative expressions and our acts of selfishness or service.  The soul is also the co influence in the meaning—where the context of  relationships and archetypal energies unfold. The soul is the source of all our lives. It projects as the mind, as the body and the universe of our experiences.  The Soul is the part of our Earth walk that God is interested in, this is the part we are all asked to integrate fully into our body, this is the God Link!

Soul is also between the body and our Higher Self sometimes referred to as our Spirit.  It can mean Holy Spirit but I tend to think that Spirit just refers to our Spirituality, it becomes less confusing then.

I hope that I have helped a little!

God Bless you Dear Soul, Dear Goddess!

Thank you everyone for assisting me with all this,it has helped a lot xx

And so … this is how it works. As you grow with knowledge of who you are … by becoming who you are … you then begin to KNOW who you are … and when you KNOW who you are … you KNOW everything.

Thanks Kerrie and Leonard, you bring up some valid points, thanks for sharing.  :-)

Comment by Leonard Thornton on March 11, 2014 at 4:27am

Interesting discussion...For me, Brad, soul and spirit are not just words, but refer to different levels of Reality/Being.  As ACIM states, words are twice removed from reality, and it is easy for us to banter words about and amalgamate them as if the underlying reality could be so easily dismissed.  I always liked the triplicites of Alice Bailey: spirit, soul, body; life consciousness, form,  energy, thought, matter  etc.  There is a great difference between soul and spirit, and I believe we confuse these with our human thoughts and sloppy thinking.  The Creator and the created are one, but not the same; God and I are one, but not the same.  You and I are one, but not the same.  If no two snowflakes are alike or the same, why would we want to collapse them in sameness, rather than appreciate their uniqueness in the Oneness??  Some might think this too metaphysica or technical, but it is far from that.  We need the vision of the artist and the precision of the scientist to access reality.  It my growth, I made a commitment, after leaving science and the university, to always verify my thought and beliefs through empirical experience.  I proved God, spirit to myself every step of the way, taking me from believing to knowing.  We need more knowers of reality than believers if we are to truly progress as a species, do we not??  I found the Book of Urantia to contain the greatest knowing and conveyance of God, the Universe, Life and ourselves. We are on a Grand Universe adventure and our knowing, feeling and experience reveal all its wonders as we open to receive and transmit them.  Joyful adventures...:)

Well said Kerrie and Brad. Leonard thanks for your reply to help clarify for those reading this post.

Comment by Kerrie ~ Administrator on March 10, 2014 at 9:58pm

It is sort of like The Federation of Light are not The Galactic Federation of Light,The Galactic Federation of Light are members of The Federation of Light! The Federation of Light say they are the 'Overseers' yet when Blossom asked the difference they said none! Just the name! so they are coming from Oneness,yet The difference is that The Federation of Light do not experience lower vibrational emotions,like frustration like The Galactics say they do! So my thoughts are the soul is individualised,the spirit is not!

“9. HATONN: Thank you. Actually, it’s a matter from three different perspectives. All souls at Matthew’s station are highly spiritually evolved, and as their spokesperson, he relays their unified feelings about souls on Earth. They love all equally and send healing light to all. They are able to honor all people as parts of God and separate that from their ungodly thoughts and actions.
10. We are physical civilizations. We don’t have the capacity for that extent of unity and unconditional love. As part of our own evolutionary progress, we are in service to God by helping lower density worlds evolve when they ask for assistance. Some among you don’t want anything changed, but Earth does — that’s why we have been helping you technologically and many of us are living on the planet to help in other ways. We’re spiritually and intellectually advanced too, so we know your thoughts, we know what you’re feeling and see what you’re doing. But unlike the souls at Matthew’s station, we do get anxious, angry, discouraged, impatient and frustrated by some of what’s going on. We have differing opinions and ideas just like you do, but we resolve the differences on the basis of what best serves all of us as a universal family.

Comment by Brad Austen on March 9, 2014 at 11:17pm

Indeed Beverly, all is one and connected. :-) Some people may have different understandings about soul or spirit as Leonard brought up, but I consider it the same energy, just different definitions. But Leonard feel free to replace the word 'soul' with 'spirit' if you like. :-)

Comment by Beverly J. Thompson on March 9, 2014 at 10:48pm

Is not the true guide, Spirit, your Higher Self and Soul Family along with choices made as Brad explains. All is One, not separate. It is the I Am Presence! 

Comment by Kerrie ~ Administrator on March 9, 2014 at 2:44pm

Thank you Leonard,I feel there is indeed truth in what you say,yet maybe it is a partnership,maybe the soul needs to learn how to guide us in partnership with the 'Holy Spirit'I know I have many guides,White Cloud being the most active at this time,but I have Galactic,Angelic,inner Earth and The Master's guidance that I have been made aware of too,this is an interesting subject,thank you for bringing it up.

White Cloud said in one of his books through Blossom Goodchild that he is no longer White Cloud but it is amazing how people will listen to a dead Indian rather then their own souls! 

I am not trained in all that metaphysical stuff,I can be 'reached' however and they let me know who they are,apparently I have had past lives where I was knowledgable and connected and I am apparently drawing on that,it all gets so confusing though when our mind tries to understand it all,I have to just trust where I get guided to and by who! There are so many 'beliefs' out there creating this illusion within an illusion,the more I try to understand the more confused I seem to get:) 

Comment by Leonard Thornton on March 9, 2014 at 5:05am

In my understanding soul, or consciousness,  is not the true guide;  rather Spirit, the Divine I AM Presence,  is the true guide.  The soul is the sum total of our experiences through the worlds of time and space.   Spirit, I AM, is not  evolving through time and space, but rather creates them both for the possibilities of experience, ultimately to experience it's own Divine Nature.

Blessings  on the pathway of unfoldment...
