The Resurrection that Comes from the Smallest of Lives

My friends, read if you don’t have time to read anything else today!!
*** In this pandemic, you look upon the microbial realm as an enemy. This can only add to the imbalance. Please send love into this realm. …Remember, you would not have your physical life and incarnation and its health without the service and companionship of these tiniest of lives. ***
What you term the microbial world is to us a boundary between the incarnate world and the subtle body of Gaia. It is an elemental realm responsive to the overall balance and harmony of life and energy within Gaia’s being. Through the collective intelligence within the microbial realm, Gaia regulates its incarnate and energetic manifestation; it is a realm responsive to the conditions of planetary balance. Human activity is affecting the balance of the world in many ways through its activity. Boundaries are being broken, patterns of energy and behavior are being altered. This is reflected in changes in your climate, but it is also affecting boundaries and relationships between you and the microbial world. Bacterial and viral lives that normally would not have access to your human world now do. You have given entrance to a being that was more restricted in where it could go, what it could do; now it is free to roam the world, with effects that can be harmful to you, as you are seeing. It is not an enemy, but it is now unconfined and reveling in its freedom.
But this event allows for other, important lessons to be learned. It gives you a chance to observe how nature responds and benefits when your human activity is lessened or redirected. There has been a cry for help from many sources in the natural world and the beings that serve it, and this virus is responding to this cry. You can build a civilization that serves your needs and aspirations while also serving the harmony and well-being of the world around you. You will need to make changes, but this is within your capacity. You need to see yourselves as citizens of a planetary, Gaian community. This virus reminds you of this. We are not insensitive to the suffering that humanity is now enduring, though we point out that the nature and duration of this suffering is due as much to human choices as to a viral presence. It is not as if you had no warning that this was possible if you continued dealing with nature as you have. If you are to grow from this experience, you must as a people take stock of what is happening, of the choices you have been making, and learn from it. Seek balance with your world and with each other. Seek the balancing power of love.
In this pandemic, you look upon the microbial realm as an enemy. This can only add to the imbalance. Please send love into this realm. The beings therein are beloved of God as well. So much fear and negativity are directed towards the microbial realm by human beings because it can be a source of disease and death. This can affect how that realm relates to you, and it affects the energetic balance of that realm itself.
Remember, you would not have your physical life and incarnation and its health without the service and companionship of these tiniest of lives. To give them your love would be gratefully received and would help to balance that which is now in disarray. I give you my blessings!

These Times We’re Living In

Red HouseI have an album called just that:  “These Times We’re Living In.”  It’s on Red House Records, and lovers of folk music of the “Prairie Home Companion” variety will love it.  But the title strikes me many times a day lately.

I have actually had it:  COVID-19–but I had it lightly, and I assume it is resolving itself, so I feel very fortunate.  I spend a lot of time wondering what this particular “plague” means for humanity.  In this country, particularly, it would be easy to take a very dark view of things, and I have to fight doing that:  decency and civility seem to have deserted us, and evil and narcissism rule.  People are dying, many for no good reason.  We seem to live in a police state, and we don’t know when the present circumstances will end.

But there’s the other side to all this:  people are finding wellsprings of kindness and unselfishness they might have forgotten.  There is a unity among the “little people” of this world now.  Decency and civility have NOT deserted all of us.  On a personal level, I fight despair daily, but I believe the battle will be won.

Today, in meditation, I found again the landscapes I came through to get here.  I found the purpose that is unfolding, the worlds that are eternal behind the false ones, the very planes of light….and knowing that these are more real than anything that seems to be happening here–despite appearances!–I can choose where to live.

May all people be well

May all people find peace

May all people be happy.

Om Shanti.
