You are not alone. Of course, that is extremely difficult for you to comprehend as you move so slowly, in your time frames, through your issues. Perhaps you feel as if you have been slugging through the mire for ages. In a sense you have. For indeed prior to this New Age transition, the format has been: create some karma, exit the earth, create a new earth life in which to work out your past karma and then create new karma. A never-ending cycle of work, or if you like, pain.
You have read over and over again how you must clear yourself of karma and that even as you do so, you are again creating new karma no matter how diligently you feel you are living a “good and appropriate” life. Do such thoughts indicate that you are bad, an ongoing sinner? Please place those thoughts in the power needs of the church of yesterday and you will understand the need for such thoughts until the church was ready to evolve.
Let us be more explicit. The church was designed on the mother, father, children model that you most often use to describe a family. Father or God had complete control. Mother or Mary was the tender-hearted mom who helped you even when God or father was angry at you. You have played the role of child for eons – to allow you to move through control and power issues.
You have completed those lessons. Your karma is no more. Never again will you return to earth to solve some dilemma that you set up in the Old Age. Those painful lessons and memories are over. By the same token, you no longer need or want an all-powerful father figure telling you how to live your life or having life and death control over you. You have graduated or more to the point for this discussion, you have left home.
Will you make “mistakes?” Of course, just as is true for any child leaving the nest. But will the ramifications for those mistakes be the same? No, for your perceptions and needs have evolved as is indicated by your movement into the New Age.
You no longer want to learn your lessons in pain – that is of the Old Age. Therefore, you no longer need to have any group – whether that group be the government, the church or your family – outlining what is right or wrong for you and creating punishments that fit their needs.
Do you see how appropriate heaven and hell would be if the church wanted to control parishioners? Do you see how appropriate laws would be if government had a need to control the people? Do you see how right and wrong would be appropriate for any family setting in which the parents needed to maintain control?
Those controls, those needs are dissolving much more rapidly than even we expected. But the net result of that freedom from being wrong or doing wrong, is a loneliness that is difficult for you to describe.
You have maintained your religious, governmental and societal guidelines for eons. Even though you often did not like those guidelines, they did provide you with a sense of rightness. If you married the right person, you were given accolades. If you offered services to your church, you were given accolades. If you followed the laws, you were given accolades. The Old Age rules set you free at the same time that they were imprisoning you. For those rules were not designed for or by you, but rather by the institution that needed to perpetuate itself.
Now that you are an adult, you will create your own rules. But that brings us to our original thought. Leaving home, becoming an adult can be lonely. That is what you are currently experiencing. In essence, you are buying and furnishing your own home in the city of your choice and you would love to have your parents tell you what is right for them, so you would know what is right for you.
Such is no longer possible. The small piece that remains of the Old Age you is pinning for that direction – at the same time that the New Age you is screaming to be free.
Do you understand that you cannot have close friends telling you what to do, until you know enough about yourself to move forward without their input? This is a complicated concept that we wish for you to process slowly. You are looking for friends and relatives who will tell you that you are moving in the right direction – while at the same time, you do not want anyone telling you what to do. Even if someone were to pop into your life who was willing to create a life plan for you, you would soon toss that plan by the wayside.
The New Age is about freedom. A concept you are just starting to understand and accept. Freedom to cherish yourself. Freedom to make your own decisions. The freedom to be.
Freedom is an extremely difficult arena for you right now, because you have been trained for eons to listen to and follow whatever grouping, including friends, you construed to be of import to you. Never before have you created your own life, with your own policies. That special freedom has always been given to someone or something out there.
There is no longer anyone out there providing the answers you want. That is your loneliness. More to the point, that is your freedom. Friends and family will return. You are one after all. But they will return only after you have discovered your own freedoms and joy.
Are we telling you that you may be lonely for a time? Yes. Not because we or God are punishing you, but because you want to find out who you are without the comfortable restrictions your society has placed on you for eons. Does that mean you should negate the friends you have? Of course not. Merely that they will not feel as close as you would like them to feel until you have found yourself.
Do not fret. You have not been abandoned. You have been set free.
Like parents who have every confidence that their child can handle the world without them, we tell you from the depth of our being – you are fine, you are strong and you are capable. Go find yourself and you will find others that think and act as you do. Negate finding yourself and you will continue the relationships you have at this time.
Do not be frightened. You are fully capable. You are a complete, strong and wonderfully evolving human. Allow that thought to drape you in warmth and then allow yourself to set out on your journey of discovering yourself. What a wonderful time for you. What a wonderful time for the Universe.
So be it. Amen
