“Sons and daughters of truth, you summon to yourselves in time that which you have agreed to outside of time, in the covenant of souls.” COL bk.2, 8:III
This word from Choose Only Love seems to say that we put together a contract ahead of time for the lives that we will live. We decide the outline of our life. If this is true, and I think it is, then this reassurance is helpful in the extreme.
We can know that what we live through was, at least partially, thought through in advance. What happens may come as a surprise when we are on earth, but not in another realm. We knew in advance what we were signing up for.
The law of attraction is also in operation here. We “summon” to ourselves what we will experience. This too is reassuring. Nobody is doing this to us. We are doing it to ourselves, and if this is true, we can change what we do not like. A contract can be modified if we find ourselves lapsing into negativity, and thereby attracting bad things to ourselves.
I don’t believe that we would have chosen things on the Other Side, before birth, that would be detrimental to our soul’s advancement. And so we can realize that we are only gaining from the experiences that we have.
Let us take the overarching view today. Let us imagine that what we are experiencing is only for our ultimate good.
And if we want to change our attitude about what happens, this is only a thought away. Others will help, for, after all this is a “covenant” of souls. We agree to our part in this covenant.
