The following text is an excerpt from Tom Montalk‘s book, Fringe Knowledge for Beginners.
Why do people choose to be born into this world? There are as many answers as there are people. Some come here to do something, to experience something, or to learn things they cannot outside this world.
It is the same reason people play games or watch movies — they get to experience things they couldn’t otherwise.
Being alive on Earth in a physical body can be difficult. Life is like an obstacle course, weight training program, or crash course in a tough subject.
Besides the fun and joy of being alive, there is also anger, fear, and suffering. But the negative stuff is what makes the game challenging and unique.
Life is body-building for the soul, and the challenges we face in life are the weights that build up our spiritual muscles if we have the strength to handle them.
Another reason someone might come here is to help others wake up. That is the risk these helper souls face when incarnating on Earth.
They might get so distracted in life that they never discover the higher knowledge within them, failing to do what they came here to do, which is use that knowledge to help others.
Think of a college student who returns to high school to help other students learn things he has already mastered. The problem is that being born wipes your memories of where you came from and who you truly are, as though the college student joins high school having forgotten he already graduated.
The subjects might seem strangely familiar and easy to him, and in this way he can still help others. But should he get sucked up into the distractions that come with being a high school student, he might forget even what he learned in college, perhaps even flunk out.
Maybe you are a helper soul. If you enjoy figuring things out, pondering the mysteries of the universe, and feel happy when other people find ways to improve their lives and themselves, then most likely you are a helper soul.
If so, it is very important that you devote some time thinking, reading, learning about higher truths in order to familiarize yourself with who you really are and what you really know.
At the core, you already know these truths but have forgotten them. Remembering is difficult because compared to your higher self, the lower self is incredibly asleep and distracted, so recovering what you know deep inside is similar to learning it for the first time.
The difference is that if some truth is already within you, learning it again through research, experience, and contemplation will come more quickly, naturally, and with an exciting sense of recognition.
You will feel something special when you finally understand what you already know deep down. It carries the ring of truth. Not only will it make sense, but it will feel right. When both the head and heart agree with an idea, pay attention.
Average people are relatively non-polarized in that they don’t go out of their way to manipulate or help others.
They wish only to live a comfortable life and are not interested in learning higher truths if these do not cater to their convenience. They are orderly inhabitants of the energy farm, neither threat to the negative forces nor of critical consequence to the positive forces.
Then there are people born with the potential to make a difference. They show a natural curiosity for higher truths, develop a desire in life to help others, and are endowed with maturity and abilities that seem more advanced than heredity or social programming alone can explain. These are the helper souls mentioned above.
More accurately they are superhuman souls who have volunteered to incarnate back into regular physical bodies to help bust receptive humans out of the Control System. They are advanced beings born into the Control System to help bring it down from the inside.
Negative forces see helper souls as unpredictable and uncontrollable threats to their agenda.
Because the Control System depends on people giving it power through their programmed belief in illusory limitations and ignorance of better alternatives, if enough individuals woke up spiritually and put into practice higher abilities and knowledge, the Control System would surely fall like a house of cards.
So aside from manipulating and feeding off humans, negative beings use the Control System to suppress or destroy helper souls before they grow strong enough to accomplish their mission.
The lower half of the Control System (media, schools, military, religion, etc.) manipulates the masses and is mostly a third dimensional operation run by people profiting at the expense of others.
The upper half appears to be run by negative astral, alien, and demonic forces who use sophisticated higher dimensional techniques to target helper souls or recruit specific individuals useful to their agenda.
Helper souls serve an important purpose in the divine plan to counter the negative agenda. To the higher positive forces they are like brave paratroopers agreeing to parachute into enemy territory on a dangerous mission of liberation.
As mentioned, one risk they face is forgetting who they are when they arrive. Being born as a human infant is extremely traumatizing and the years of social conditioning that follow effectively suppresses their higher abilities and memories.
Should they survive the gauntlet with enough of themselves intact, they then stand a chance of accomplishing what they came here to do.
If you are unsure whether you are a helper soul, it doesn’t really matter because you can choose to live like one regardless.
All you have to do is think, feel, speak, and act from the highest place within you, to identify and follow those interests originating from the real you (Higher Self), to remove the mask of fears and lowly desires grafted onto you since birth by the Control System.
It is by millions of people doing this that pressure builds against the walls of this prison until cracks appear and widen into passages allowing escape.
That sounds dramatic, but in practical terms it means that higher souls who stay true to themselves inspire confidence in others and show them the way toward transcending this physical world.
It comes down to maintaining an optimistic attitude that acknowledges and sidesteps pitfalls, making choices based on intuition and wisdom instead of social expectation, and serving the spiritual empowerment of others according to ability and circumstance.
