For all who read this, may we now begin an evolving
relationship based on mutual respect, kindness, understanding and open
communication. All solid, meaningful and lasting relationships develop
from a foundation of shared experience, shared history, shared loyalty
and trust. It is to be hoped that we can start this process as you read
this. Let me introduce myself. I am a health care professional in my 40's
and I live in Seattle. I have read my brother's material, as well as that
of others, on the 'Net. The need for me to comment and to establish a dialogue
came to me earlier this year. The opportunity has now arrived! Please feel
free to comment and to ask questions as you feel the need. My ground rule
for life and for communication on this site will always be — keep it honest,
keep it clean and keep it kind. Think about how your comments are received
at the other end. So, let us begin.
Everyone who reads this has a different set of life experiences.
Those experiences will lead each of us to interpret Sheldon's messages
in a slightly different way. Whatever is in our hearts and minds, whatever
we believe, will cause us to filter his words and to change them. Let us
therefore acknowledge that each of us will glean our own meanings, based
on the intellectual and spiritual influences that have shaped our lives.
Since the age of 3, and probably earlier, my background has been deeply
steeped in "metaphysics", comparative religions, meditation,
myth and symbol, etcetera. If, based on this background, my point of view becomes
too obtuse or unfathomable, please write to me and we can talk about it.
My brother's update for November 25 focuses first on
the Ascension process. What a maligned and overused word is Ascension,
but we must keep in mind that it is a process. Though we all experience
the energies, we do filter them in our own way. For some, that may mean
profound changes in the physical body, such as illness or nausea, dizziness,
absolute fatigue, inability to digest certain foods, diarrhea, aches and
pains, flu-like symptoms, or changes in hormonal cycles.
It seems that some people are experiencing the rapid
onset of sometimes "fatal" illnesses, which cause them to change
their lifestyle. And a number of people who have been just barely 'hanging
in there' physically, suddenly let go and die. I think this is a time when
people are learning BIG lessons quickly. It seems to me that we are being
challenged at whatever level we can learn most profoundly. To wit, if we
learn best through physical body changes, we may be experiencing serious
health problems. If we are very emotional, we may be undergoing profound
changes in relationships, such as divorce, death or betrayal. Or we may
be experiencing bouts of heavy depression, confusion, inability to focus
and control our emotions. By the same token, if we are more intellectual,
we may be feeling confused, listless, withdrawn, unable to focus our ideas,
very FORGETFUL, and so forth.
We are all being affected at some level, even to our
DNA, as some scientists and researchers have recently begun to report.
We are being influenced , or "prepared", from the cell to the
soul level. Is this frightening, is this an intrusion, or is this something
we should fight against? No! I refuse to entertain the illusion that this
is not of our own will. We all agreed to participate in this at some level,
and it is high time that we began our participation! We are here NOW because
we want to be a part of this, so what is holding us back? In the course
of this letter, we shall talk about what that means.
The update spoke of how they built the foundation, and
are now working on the steel framing — which, I guess, means the "star
seed" people. At some level, this change and reinforcement of certain
individuals filters down to all of us. At a basic level, be aware that
we are going through changes. We must try to stay grounded and humble.
We are all working together to get through this, and we need to remember
that we are all connected. What is done to the least is done to the whole.
The same goes for our beloved planet. She is being helped and worked on
at a core level. Her frequencies are undergoing incredible swings — witness
the magnetic pole shifting. I have heard reports that pilots are having
to calibrate their instruments almost daily to keep up with the shifts
in magnetic north. (Do you realize how amazing this is?)
Since childhood, I have visualized the Earth as a beautiful
and glorious Woman. I love her dearly and would do anything for her. In
fact, I feel that I exist just to be here for HER. Many women I have spoken
with feel the same way. They are strangely drawn and loyal to the Earth
as a Woman and as the Mother. It is that point on which I focus through
all this. I try to keep Her in mind as the One who is Important. We shall
help Her through this. We are there for Her. And so that we can be of more
help to Her, we must heighten our own frequencies. As the update said,
the key to freeing the Earth of her limitations is by "the rapid shift
in frequency and in the nature of the geomagnetic field," which is
basically causing all of our discomfort. So why should we even attempt
to hold up this process? I think that fear is what holds most of us back.
We must acknowledge our fears.
Compassion and love involve work. They are simple and
yet they are complex. They are difficult, both to understand and to accept.
When done from the heart, it is easy for us to practice these virtues.
The problem is, of course, that our hearts are not open. They are filled
with fear, sadness, remorse, revenge, bitterness, etcetera. Events we have
found difficult to accept, have perhaps hardened them. Hence the need to
dig even deeper into our hearts and open them still further. Do we accept
the circumstances in our lives as lessons to be learned that will allow
us to open our hearts still further? Or do we use these events as an excuse
to close our hearts down and simply blame?
It seems to me that the rituals we have been inventing,
pursuing and devoting ourselves to, have helped us to respond in a more
positive manner. (Is this true for you?) I have been praying to the Mother
and am even doing the ritual of the rosary with a group of women. We meet,
not physically, but by long-distance, but we are focused on the same thoughts.
We pray and meditate using Mary and other symbols of the Mother to focus
our energies. I have to say that it has helped me tremendously. I focus
my heart on the Mother symbol to try to activate the depths of my own faith
and compassion. I also pray to White Tara, female counterpart of the Tibetan
Buddhist Avalokiteshvara, and the Mother of Compassion. These things help
ground me. (What helps to ground you? Find it and keep it as your ritual.)
It seems to me that our dreams are very important now.
If our logical minds are having trouble accepting the reality of the changes
that are occurring, then our dreams embody the only true way some of us
have of hoping to understand what's real. Our minds logically interpret
the intuitive, and misrepresent it to us. But in dreaming, the logical
mind is shut down. The symbols dreams give to us can sometimes come directly
from our souls — the real reality. At some point, the logic of "dream
time" will be our real world. We will no longer need to employ the
"logical mind". It will be an anachronism. But for now, it is
only through dreams or waking visions that most of us have access to that
Waking visions are a wonderful approach and we should
allow ourselves to daydream and to drift. We can set aside a point in our
meditation time to envision what we will. (See what comes to you. I guarantee
that you will often receive your most valuable insights in that state.)
More and more, we are living in a time when the wisdom of our lives arises
from the realm beyond the "logical" — the concrete mind. But
how shall we get there?
We must all activate ourselves. Through individual work,
we must open our souls and our hearts. In the past,. Shamans were the only
ones allowed to frequent the other realms. They did all the work — familiarized
themselves with the territory — and were acknowledged accordingly. Now
that once-distant realm is right around the corner. Over 75 years ago,
Alice Bailey (an English-born occultist and New Age prophet), said that
the veil between the two worlds would be rent asunder by the end of this
century. Boy, was she right! There is now only a very THIN curtain between
us. It is time we began to accept the spiritual side of ourselves and befriended
it. The Angelic Realm is all around us and we must open our hearts, our
eyes and our ears to them. We must recognize only the Highest and the Best
of them and invite them in. We must always use our intelligence, our faith
and our hearts: they will lead us to know what is right and to act for
the greater good. And, of course, we must follow the Golden Rule: "Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you".
You do not always have to accept what I say, or what
my brother Sheldon says, but you must judge what you encounter in life.
Read, explore and meditate, and filter it through your own "BS"
detector - your heart, your mind and your discernment - to find your own
Just remember..........The truth is out there. Really!
And it is stranger than you think.
