Charles: [Mark] Hello my friends, Charles here to accept your invitation to dialog about the issue at hand, that being the basic level of discontent experienced by so many on this mortal journey today. This discontent arrives when individuals one by one have progressed to a state of awakening and this enlightenment that they have had wakes them up to the great contrast that is before them as they see how things have degraded in the direction of greed and manipulation and basic unloving attitudes and they are enraged and sense that such a chance at life with such a beautiful planet and all that is going for them is somehow being corrupted by forces outside their jurisdiction.
This is a normal and natural process that occurs as those who become awakened begin to make these assessments and discernment's about their environment and what is right and what is wrong about what they observe. The problem with this arises when the individual observing becomes overwhelmed with the information stating the magnitude of the problem and the danger arises that those individuals who become aware become paralyzed with the notion that the problems are too big and the solution is somehow too great and that their impact or even their opinion of what is right has little or no effect.
So what can be done to steer those discerning individuals away from the conclusion that all is lost? What can be done to insure those seeking individuals that there are positive solutions as well as all the apparent negative conditions? I tell you what will be done in the end is the example of the lives lived by those who know there is a bigger picture to observe than all the apparent negative influences present in the world immediately before you. The conviction and faith of one who knows of a certainty of a grander picture, of the fact of Michael's jurisdiction over this world, the presence of all the administering spirits who would help to see this world ushered into a correct state, the plan of the Creators of this universe that is in place for such a world which has taken such an interesting turn.
To all of you who know of these truths and can affirm these realities in your own lives, your lives are the greatest signal you can send to those whose lives have been rocked by their awakening because the stability that you provide in your conviction of a larger perspective and a greater plan can be a significant anchor point for those who find themselves in a rising tide of uncertainty. Those who have faith and those who have conviction and who demonstrate such in the way they live their lives will be those anchors of stability for many as they look, desperately seeking for the higher ground, the solid point to attach to, the fixed point of a north star in the swirling night sky.
That is what you may be to your fellow individuals, your family, your friends, your compatriots around you, because as the tide of uncertainty rises and the contrasts grow to extremes, you may be there with yet an even larger awareness and perspective that transcends the circumstances and details of any glimpse of time and space because you have seen it through the perspective, through the scope of your larger awareness of grander truths that exist behind all these temporal details. That is what we attempt as teachers, to instill in you this reaffirmation of a larger picture or a greater plan that is in place, constantly reminding you that there is more going on that meets your eyers.
Just as the parent grows into some wisdom about what to expect during the phases of growth of the child, so it is, those who are spiritually aware come into some level of awareness and experience about what to expect as spiritual growth occurs as well. There always is encountered some period of great unsettling because one has shown a willingness to leave the base camp and venture out into the unknown wilderness. There arises immediately upon that decision a fear which must be overcome because you are leaving the safety that you know in your base camp and you are agreeing to let go of that safety in favor of grabbing on to the new reality that you can only find by having let go of the old.
So bear with all of your brethren who will demonstrate their frustration, who will exhibit their uncertainty, who will manifest their unknowingness, this is as it should be. This is a necessary step in the growth process of spiritual awakening, this is a good thing although it may be a difficult step from time to time. Most difficult steps that are taken in growth are highly rewarding. One must lose and shed an old way, a tooth must be lost so that a new one, a better one may take its place. But in the interim there is the episode of losing the tooth and the trauma associated. Nevertheless, the divine plan, the bigger plan, has in store for a greater thing to happen after this episode and you all bear witness that this is a repeating pattern. There must be the giving up of one before there can be the gaining of another to take its place.
This process is greatly unsettling because there is a period before you have grabbed onto the new where you are in unknown territory. So allow all your brethren the freedom to be in this unknown territory and to, in this process, draw to themselves that which they need to build a new and better place to reside, a new and better foundation upon which to build even a greater structure of understanding. Simply be there for them as you have said; allow them their expression in its wholeness and all the while maintain your posture of higher awareness so that they are drawn into your version of awareness and you do not succumb to wallow with them in theirs. Simply being there for them and holding the space, holding the reality of higher awareness is a service to all. Never underestimate the value of your contribution along these lines in all aspects of relationship; your maintaining the integrity of one who has certainty and security in universal truths and principles means you are the high ground which may be sought as the waters rise.
So be it. I am always grateful for the opportunity to add to the conversation and potentially to the enhancement of understanding and awareness. I now withdraw to allow this space for others.
Light: [Mark] Hello my friends, I am Light and I would offer a few words. I would build on the foundation Charles has offered. I would use his imagery of leaving a place of security and safety and venturing out into the unknown and the courage that it takes to venture out beyond the walls of security and the influence of spirit in this equation. But what brings you the conviction to go forward boldly as you manifest your faith? That is this spiritual charge that you feel when you act in such faith and such conviction.
I invite you to consider how this plays out in relationship to your relationships; that is, if you are confronted with an individual who is manifesting desperation and despair, you have in that circumstance an opportunity before you just as you are observing the opportunity before the individual you are being there for. Your opportunity to be brave and bold and go out beyond your comfort zone may be that you are bold enough to bring forth some of what brings you stability and comfort in your life, in your awareness. It may be your opportunity to go into uncharted territory with individuals as they are wont to share with you, so it may be that you could share your heart with them, a story of peace and love and grace, a story of faith and conviction, of certainty within your heart that all will be well no matter what transpires in the form of details, a conviction of faith which has your destiny secured.
You have the opportunity from time to time to share some of your deepest thoughts, some of your most sincere convictions and there is no time like when an individual is sending out a cry for love, the demonstration of frustration, the sincere dissatisfaction with a current state. This is when you may be most influential in taking that leap of faith yourself. What if you were to discuss some details of your vision of how things will get better? What if you were to go beyond your comfort zone in these realms? The worst thing that could happen is that it falls on deaf ears. The best thing that can happen is that you have taken another growth step, you have provided for yourself another opportunity to express who you are, what your values are and how they affect your view of life and your very life itself.
You have all gathered to yourselves many tools that can be used and a great sense of how to interface with universe principles. So in these times that are before us, when there is a great crying out for an increased awareness, I pray that we all may have the courage and the strength in those moments to be bold, to be an act of faith and conviction in service. Remember, your experiences and your awareness are absolute as unassailable, they are your personal achievements and cannot be challenged by another. They may not resonate with all others; there may be a disconnect of timing but nevertheless they are your gifts not only to bring to the Supreme, but to offer to your brethren. I invite you to consider this avenue along with the many others that are present in the circumstance such as this and invite you to join into the game as much as you feel you are led to do.
I bid you all have a wonderful week and a good morning. It is always my joyful pleasure to be with you. Thank you for hearing my words, farewell.
