Let us return to the recent scene of potential disaster – Japan. Many of you, despite your New Age thoughts about negating victim hood and fear, remain concerned about those who were killed, hurt or injured. That is not terrible or even unacceptable. Many of you cling to Old Age thoughts of right and wrong, despite our discussions that such judgments are not an issue in this New Age. Your only concern, your only issue is how your heart/inner being feels about something.
Do not berate yourself for caring, compassion or even sadness. Even though you are aware that there is no death, merely a transition to a different environment, you can still note the pain of those who remain – in a sense – to be tortured through injuries or loss of loved ones or their community. It is not terrible to care or even to worry. That is part of being human.
You are moving across the New Age bridge to joy. Part of that joy is caring for others. The statement, “We are all one” should not be taken lightly. In truth, give yourself accolades for being concerned, even sad.
If you were to see an injured animal – would you feel joy or sadness? If you were to find a tortured child - would you feel joy or sadness? If you were to find that a beautiful forest were destroyed – would you feel sadness or joy? Do you now understand how wonderful it is that you feel emotions for people, animals and the earth – even though those now in Japan are in a part of the world that you have never or may never visit? Do you see how wonderful your feelings are? Let us give you another example. If you were in a car accident that resulted in the loss of your leg, would your first thoughts be of joy or sadness – perhaps even anger?
So it is for you now. You have lost a part of yourself through the unexpected upheavals of the earth/Gaia. It is as if you have lost a leg through no fault of your own. The joy in all of this is that you care. You feel. And you are feeling for people and places that are not of your immediate community.
Perhaps you will contend that such has always been the case. We beg to differ. In the Old Age, your concern was for your immediate circle – those in your family, community, state/province or country. And though some of you may have sent funds to the various locals injured in a natural disaster – that disaster was “out there” somewhere and did not really affect you internally.
What you have not noted, perhaps even to yourself, is that this disaster, Haiti and even Hurricane Katrina affected you differently. You may or may not have sent money, but your “heart bled” for those in the “eye of the storm.” Many of you will claim that you and others only feel as long as the media points out the pain to you. That is a somewhat accurate description – but it is rapidly changing.
You are feeling the pain of others deeper and longer than has been the case in the past. Your heart is awakening to the pain of others far beyond your field of vision and connection.
Let us give you an example of what most often happened in the Old Age. The horrors of the Holocaust were displayed and discussed immediately after World War II. Your media continues to explore what happened to the Jewish people and any other group the Nazis found unacceptable. Even so, in the 1950s, many Jewish doctors were not allowed to practice in Christian or even general hospitals. And after many generations of Japanese-Americans integrating into United States society, Japanese-Americans were forced into camps during World War II. German-Americans and Italian-Americans were not thought to need camps.
The New Age has not arrived for everyone. There are still many people who wish to blame someone or something for their discomfort – whether that be economic, physical, spiritual or emotional. But with each disaster, more people are shifting to “think” with their hearts, rather than their pocketbooks or preconceived ideas of which group of people is right or wrong.
“We are all one” is becoming more and more of an accepted belief pattern. Your beliefs are shifting to African-Americans dating Caucasians, homosexuals marrying and younger men dating older women. The lines of conformity are blurring into a beautiful gray. And disasters such as occurred in Haiti, New Zealand and Japan are instrumental.
It might be difficult for you to understand it now, but your New Age, your joy is about people blending on the basis of feelings, not color or economic status. Which returns us to our original thought. How wondrous, how joyous for those of you in the United States who feel extreme empathy for the very people you wanted to annihilate 70 years ago. Your heart is expanding and therefore, your joy.
Honor yourself for feeling empathy. Send love to those in need much as you would have 70 years ago to those of your race fighting in WWII. Know that your feelings are an instrumental part of your movement into the New Age.
And honor those who agreed to play roles many of you did not opt to play – those in Haiti, New Zealand and Japan. Honor your humanity, earth and the Universes. All are joining together to ensure that you are enmeshed in love and joy. So be it. Amen.
We will one more piece for Brenda. Even though those who are suffering in Japan, Haiti and New Zealand seem to be in a hopeless situation, the earth is shifting just as you are. And just as a natural forest fire seems overwhelming at first, it is necessary to introduce new growth and animals to that area. The people of Haiti, Japan and New Zealand will rebuild more rapidly than now appears probable. That rebuilding will become a model for new communities throughout the Universes. Will it happen tomorrow? No. Will it happen in your lifetime – most probably. Just as you felt different and stronger after you allowed yourself to “pass through the eye of the storm” as you cleansed yourself for the New Age, so to will it be true for those parts of earth who agreed to move through their traumas en masse.
So be it. Amen
