I speak of human transformation and potential, from one state to another, a shedding of skin, a discarding of everything that has had its day and a birthing to the new. For it is only in discarding completely that which is false, corrupt, haggard and spent that the new can come through. Else it is just a re-patching up, re-formulating old, tired formulas. Thus do not be afraid to let go of that which you are called to let go of – out dated ways of thinking or being in the world. For it is these that keep you trapped. Take yourself through the initial discomfort of letting them go so that you can slither free in to a new awakening, a new way of being that is more suited to all that you can become. And watch us, how we do it again and again, never looking back, only forward to the new, the pure, the true.
And do not fear us, for we – like you – have a place in keeping the system of the whole ticking over and operating the way that the Lord intended. For we are all God’s creatures no matter the form, each with a different function to perform. Thus find your function and let others carry out theirs and see if there can be acceptance of all. For though we may be poisonous and have a sting, we rarely have occasion to make use of our venom. We use it only as a final resort for self-preservation, when our ways are disrupted and we react in fear – much like the human. Thus, taunt us not and we shall not taunt you, and take courage on the path that everything has its place, all cycles pass. For they are just that: a cycle. The human birth and death is just one such cycle leading on to another form, whilst the essence, the truth of all beings remains no matter the form. For the truth of your being cannot be corrupted or broken down.
Thus, as you engage with worldly affairs, take care to keep only one foot in this world, not to be too bogged down and all consumed by it. For you miss the point of life which is to come in to communion with the hidden, more expansive, all-encompassing Self. Do not fear change or resist it either. Instead take courage and rise up and be part of that change in whatsoever way you are called. And do not be afraid to stand for your ideals, even if this is not what you see around you. Do not unduly disturb or try to stamp out others, for this is when their venom stings you. Instead go your own way and show by example that which you wish to see and birth. For you are not a passive bystander, but one complete part of this whole. This is the message I bring. It is only in following your path and finding out who you truly are that you will be free and a world full of more Self-Realised souls is a world that speaks of harmony and balance and acceptance of other. It cannot come from outside. It has to come from inside. Thus, go with faith and enjoy the ride to the birthing of the new you that is fearless in your pursuit of truth and will stop at nothing till the final birthing of the new dawn in which you realise that everything you need – everything you are seeking – is already contained within. Amen.
