“Be the peace you wish to see in the world” Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr. made this famous statement more than 50 years ago. He was in the midst of fighting and violence and threats and all the scenes and sounds that are so hauntingly familiar of the space we stand in as Americans at this time.
I’m not proud of that.
I’m not proud of the fact that for all the advances in technology, space program, specialized intelligence, government funding, the wages and benefits of our politicians, the rise in the quality of life for the average American, even the poor of our country are not as under resourced as they were back in the 60’s (give this a read: “It’s better than it Looks” by Gregg Easterbrook). With all the progress, why are we still right here?
Oh, times they are a changin’. There is mystery afoot my friends. The Universal vibes are kicking into high gear and as a group of humans, we’re kicking back. As Souls we’re all here for our own reasons; to learn, to grow, to evolve, to become our true Divine self, to play roles in each other’s plays. But at the exact same time, we’re here for some really big Universal reasons like to make sure we evolve, but not so fast that we evolve our way right out of our bodies! So there are Souls who are here specifically to move us up in evolution, and Souls who are here specifically to temper our speed in that evolution and yes, there are Souls who are here specifically to keep us where we’re at. We all have a purpose, again, that purpose is for us to evolve in balance and consistency but not so fast that we lose our human components.
I know we all get frustrated with people who don’t think like we think, or value what we value, and in our knuckle dragging humanness we’re convinced that we are RIGHT and they are WRONG. But, what if that’s not true? What if all “they” are doing is to keep us from going too fast. What if in these times of huge (and we’re in one of those times if you haven’t noticed) dimensional shift, their only job is to keep us from leaving the planet.
Hmmmm, there’s a new thought. 2021 is about new thoughts. New attitudes, new focus, new dimensions, new vibrations, all the things. It’s amazing, it really is, but it’s not feeling and looking so amazing. Everything and everyone is in flux, from the pushers to the dragers in this vibrational world, everyone and everything is in a state of shift. It’s exciting and frustrating at the exact same time.
And so it is.
In this time Spirit guides us to go inside ourselves. To create peace and contentment (not to be confused with laziness) in ourselves. Our external world is full of distractions, and please understand, that’s all they are. With that said, they’re big distractions! No doubt. But not everything is for you, not everything is for you to fear, to control, to worry, to fight, to get unhealthy about. Fear is the root of all that pains us. We are not designed to live in fear, we are designed to follow love. In this time of shift it is vital that we put our focus on what we CAN do, instead of what we can’t, to have clarity of our truest desires, our clear abilities, what gives us joy, how we can be of service to others, to connect and to maintain, at all costs, universal love.
Hold your space. Just yours. And encourage others to do the same. You have the power to turn off the news, to stop scrolling social media, to talk about what makes you happy instead of what brings you fear, to stop the gossip. Chicken Little, the sky is not falling, stop. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
This time of discomfort is not permanent, this too shall pass. We are not left here by Spirit to suffer, or to be in fear, we are being asked to know our destination is joy, to live in that love space and no matter what, to NOT leave that space. Love is our shelter, today, tomorrow and always. Be the peace you wish to see.
Forever the journey, Anne
