Re: Decisions in this life effecting Angelic or Celestial status
When I think of how human decisions can affect your angelic status, I just think, "ok, why am I human to start with?". There are many reasons for many different angels as to why they're here, but one of them would probably be to learn something. If you go throughout your life determined not to learn anything whatsoever from this life, then probably the effect on your angelic status is, you'll just come back human yet again as opposed to your true angelic form to begin the lesson all over again. Your decisions affect you, I believe, but it's more like "you didn't make the right decision, try again" than changing your ultimate place in the mix of thing, which you could see as affecting your angelic status, as it delays you from assuming your true form.
Not learning these lessons could also really suck, as in the meantime you may accumulate bad karma in avoiding these lessons, and the lesson could get tougher the second or third time around than the first, which could become Hell on Earth......if you happen to believe angels can accumulate karma (which Terro once said he believed they could not, though I disagree with that, or perhaps I misunderstood what he meant somehow).
Actually, it just occurred to me that perhaps a lesson for incarnation may be the act of failing to learn lessons, to better identify with humans, you know? I mean, an angel looks at a heroin user, goes, yeah, that feels pretty good, but it's pretty stupid in the long run, you know it, I know it, so why're you doing it you dumbass? On the other hand, angel goes down, adopts human limitations, makes the mistake of becoming a heroin user, or something like that, upon becoming an angel again that angel may be like, "damn.......being human's hard".
"I don't think the accumulated wisdom of a life as a Human living on Earth in the physical realm can begin to make conjecture as to what is right and wrong to do as an immortal and divine Creation in the Service of the Creator"
Perhaps it's not the level of accumulated wisdom you acquire in this world.....but learning what it's like to not have that wisdom. Pretty difficult to imagine being blind till you spend a day blindfolded. Would it not be beneficial to learn how to deal with problems from the perspective of the person who has the problems? Personally, if I was depressed to the point of suicide, and some bright and happy person came in and said, "you should totally chill out, life's not that bad, silly!" I'd be like....."go away, you have no idea what this is like". Better to have someone who understands, and I don't see how an angel in Heaven could understand such human things, without being human first. So in that respect, yeah, your experiences here and the decisions you make and the lessons you learn could affect your angelic duties.
