Earth is a mystery school. Every school naturally comes with its sets of tests. So does Earth school.

Earth is a Spiritual school teaching us to practice the presence of God both in body, mind, emotion and Spirit. It is teaching us to become a living Integrated Ascended Master. It is teaching us to demonstrate Spiritual/ Christ/ Buddha/ Krishna/ Moses/ Mohammed/ Mighty I AM Presence consciousness, no matter what!

As the saying goes, “Gold is tried in fire, people by God.”

Everything that happens in life is a Spiritual test and lesson; it is God testing us to see how we respond.

The proper attitude towards everything that happens in life is that it does not matter what happened “to” us or who did it “to” us. What matters is how we respond. Whether we realize God in that moment or not is dependent on our response. Every situation in life is an opportunity to respond in love, forgiveness, humbleness and gratitude.

We realize God by responding in God Consciousness every moment of our lives, to the best of our ability. Because it is in responding in God Consciousness and acting like a Living God that we realize God! As the saying goes, “Fake it till you make it!”

The Integrated Ascended Master is ever consciously aware of this great truth and makes an all-out effort to respond in life like a master rather than reacting like a disaster.

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development.

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
Some of her service projects include:
