It's a nice Sunday morning here. Frosty outside, but the sun is shining brightly. My coffee sits ready at the side if the keyboard. (my one rebellous act against fate...putting coffee close to the keyboard. (she snickers a false bravato)) I felt like talking out loud.
I noticed your quote kind of answers Veronica's question on the other board about why is it taking so long for mankind to wake up....
"You will get all the support you need, all of the encouragement you need, to promote your ...not moving further, but to promote the substantiation of the steps you have taken. And that is an important point to understand. Each footstep you take toward Home must be for your reasons and your reasons alone. We will not give you reasons for taking the next step. But we will give you reasons for standing firmly at the furthermost step that you have taken."
Well crap (she says in a friendly voice)...no wonder it's taking so damn long...we're doing it alone. sigh. And it also explains why there are so very few 'straight up' answers...so few yes/no answers pertaining to future action. The questions are wrong. The questions are about what will happen if I do this or that. And the response is something about 'just stand in your integrity from a position of love and peace'. Not the kind of answers I look for. It was frustrating until I stopped asking the questions.
"But we will give you reasons for standing firmly at the furthermost step that you have taken."
I wonder if sometimes the reason given is nothing more than 'sorry, you can't go back and change it...just gotta be in the here and now...gotta go on from here. Now lets see that Life Energy kick into gear. Go Team!...oh yeah...and you are loved. We'll be sitting here rooting for ya!" (okay...so a little sarcasm that doesn't truly go that deep. Not as deep as before. Anyway I didn't think so. weak smile)
"This means that you cannot afford to look to me, you cannot afford to look to God, you cannot even afford to look to the Holy Spirit for giving that push, as it were, that is needed to move you across the little gap."
The strait jacket tightens...I can no longer continue pointing my finger out to the other guy...or Guide, if you will. The burden of completion, the responsibility of yielding is mine. But I'm just a tiny ego I scream....I can't do it myself. And the box only gets smaller and smaller. I can barely move my elbows...and I'm am left only with myself.
" But you may know that we all stand with arms open in welcome invitation and embrace when you, for your reasons, move across on your own."
All I can say is...."I'm going to want a LOT OF QUESTIONS ANSWERED when I get there!
(with my luck, by the time I get there, there will be a whole new crew)
