Could current horrific events finally flush to the surface the insanity of separation once and for all? Can we co-exist?
I had the blessed opportunity to sit with the Buddha Relics recently. (http://www.maitreyarelictour.com). I cried in the presence of such great unconditional love. I searched for answers to the building fear, pain and separation in our world. The answer I received was in a vision. I saw these dedicated ones, that go all the way back to a time before Christ. They were continually holding the space of loving kindness, knowing they would never see the result of their life's work. And when I asked what gave them the strength to do this their entire life, they showed me that there has always been separation, hate, anger and unthinkable barbaric acts in the human family.
Then I asked how they endured such atrocities, and they showed me that they were holding a great light upon Earth so those who come after them could finally anchor it for all time. They didn't worry about how much time this would take, or who would actually finally get the job done. Now that is dedication, trust, and pure unconditional love. They held tight to a bigger picture. And the question arose in me.... "Are WE those who will complete this job?"
"You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
As I sat there in front of the energy of holy greatness, I watched a lot of things that washed across my consciousness. It reminded me of who I have always been at the core, and what I came here for. Even as a child, I knew this was the life that big things would take place. I know many of you who read this feel this too.
I continued to sit with the Buddha, and as I watched their responsibility being passed on to us (and to those reading this), I began to feel the weight, grief and frustration in our current world situation. I also felt the power of great love to endure it and maybe even cure it once and for all. This is our work now. There is no path to follow, because we are now the path. The path we create now can end separation and bring peace that will last for a generations to come.
(I have to say that I have re-written this message over and over trying to get it just right. My lifelong guides (the Star Elders) let me know when it is conveyed just right, so it will be heard by the hearts of those reading this. They already know who this message is meant for and who will read it. So I asked the Star Elders for help.)
The Star Elders say... "A wall of fear and anger is being aggressively built on the Earth at this time by the ones who would like to see you not complete your ascension. It will take some great activity of light to penetrate this energy field that is pitting one people against another; one religion against another; one race against another; one country against another, etc.... The biggest wall at this time that keeps humanity from becoming ONE, united and peaceful is the separation created by prejudice."
As a child, people that were different than me were the most fascinating people to me. Racist or prejudiced thoughts never entered my mind. When I became more aware of others opinions, I was stunned, shocked and surprised by people's judgements and fears of those that are different than they were.
By the time I was in 5th grade, I was a little and annoying human rights activist. I had a friend in the same grade as me named Stanley. Let's say he was intellectually challenged, but I didn't care. I loved how he saw the world and how he didn't have judgements or anger; he had love. Most kids didn't like him, because he was different. One day we were out on the play ground, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a group of kids gathering and one kid was about to throw a ball at Stanley. As the ball flew, I leaped up and stopped the impact to Stanley's head. My wrist snapped. The next day I was waving my cast around the playground preaching about being nice to each other. The offending kids were sheepish and embarrassed and of course didn't like me much for making them face their bully mentality. I guess I missed my calling as a gospel preacher. The message is this ... Do I remember the kid who threw the ball? Nope! Do I remember the kid that I saved from a possible concussion? Oh yes. And most of all, was the price I paid worth it? It certainly was!
Then there was my Grandfather. He was an amazing man, and I was fascinated by his grace and nobleness. My grandmother was an amazing person as well. But before I was born, they were forced to join the KKK in their small town in the mid-west, otherwise no one would come to my grandfather's barber shop, and he would be ostracized from the community. They were forced to take sides even though it was not true to their hearts. I learned from this story to never let anyone (like current corrupted mass media and Internet) turn us against another innocent human being. We are all children of God.
Are we being brain washed by the mass media's tainted agendas about politics, world affairs ... infused with fear regarding a multitude of things including concerns about groups of radicalized crazy people? I think it was Mahatma Gandhi that said We can't fight a sane war with an insane opponent. So let us, humanely immobilize these insane ones, the few monsters that have lost all sight of all their humanity and are making our whole world blind to our humane-ity; thus building this wall of fear that is keeping us from manifesting our divinity.
When I took my first trip to Egypt, I purposely didn't study anything as I wanted to enter the sites as a little child... innocent. It is the best way to take a sacred journey. I had no preconceived notions about the history or the current culture. But neither did I understand the impact that other religions had on this area a long time ago. As I walked through temple after temple, I began to notice many of the faces of the various Gods that had been chiseled off. I asked my local guide about this, and she said without prejudice, anger or judgment, "Oh.... the Christians did that when they came here." Just so you know, she is Muslim, and I was raised Christian. I was ashamed and wanted to learn more!
Most people do not understand ... that the Quran was also studied by early Christians and Jews, before it was standardized. The Quran recounts stories of many of the people and events recounted in Jewish and Christian sacred books, although it differs in some details.
Adam, Enoch, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Solomon, Elijah, Jonah, Moses, Zechariah, John the Baptist and even Jesus (among many others) are mentioned in the Quran as prophets of God. In fact, Jesus is mentioned more often in the Quran than Muhammad, and Mary is mentioned in the Quran more than the New Testament. (from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quran#The_Bible) Our linages do come from the same source. "God has no religion."~ Mahatma Gandhi
What breaks my heart is that after 2000 years, we are still fighting the same holy wars with those whose roots are the same as ours. We all agree ... radicalism and extremism in any form is out of balance. It is an extreme form of separation and is certainly not based in love. No good comes from hate and anger; nor does judgement and prejudice. These emotions separate us. Separation is painful to the soul, and what is separated and is out of balance for a long time eventually becomes angry and insane. Terrorism and war is insane and is an extreme form of separation. This angry monster labeled terrorism goes way beyond any religious boundary, color of our skin, social status or educational level. There are good people everywhere. We must only look to each one's heart to know who they really are. We are one, humanity.
But this is the world we are in now. We created this separation, so we must fix it. Yet we can not take insane action and expect a sane result! There is no more important time than NOW. The world and all of humanity needs our love. It is time to feel, act and live from LOVE at all cost. Throw up your hands to stop bombs of all kinds that hurt innocent people! Is it worth it to you?
"You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."~ Mahatma GandhI
"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it - always."~ Mahatma Gandhi
It makes me wonder, what if my grandfather had stood up and said being prejudiced was not God like? Would his actions have caused the separation to narrow a bit in his day? And how many people would have joined him if he took a stand? Who knows what kind of wave he/they would have created.
Well, I am praying for a big wave of love that puts an end to the insanity of separation and prejudice. In fact, I AM asking for a tsunami! And I am asking you to join me. Because if we don't work to anchor love over fear, then we have to ask ourselves what is the point in our beliefs? If we don't move beyond mere positive attention and begin to take physical action out in the world, then what manifests next will be something that we participated in by default.
I send you blessings for this powerful solstice, and I now place out in the world the strong intentions for a peaceful 2016. The ancient ones hope you heard this message ~ Aluna Joy
Inspiration from Dr. Martin Luther King:
*** “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
*** "There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”
*** "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
