It’s been awhile, my friends, since I spent time with you here on the website. The Big Chill of this extreme winter induced “writer’s hibernation” within me, but fortunately everything else was functional while waiting for the promise of Spring to show itself again. Since the robins have reappeared, oh joy!, I am now thawed out and ready to resume the articles you’ve waited for.
I seldom take a break from my work and after taking a couple of days off from my hectic schedule early this week, I was greeted today with a hot blast of problems from folks who had expected me to get back to them sooner. I want to thank them for their teachings and for the trust they (and all of you) extend to me in the work that I do. It’s important, though, that you understand that on occasion I may be away and unavailable for a few days, so if you don’t hear back from me immediately, please be patient. There is a considerable demand placed upon those of us who labor to help others, and sometimes I have to take the time to be a regular person, just like yourself. There are many more people in this world than just little ole’ me, and you can take comfort in the fact that I don’t consider you a number in line, even if sometimes you will have to wait in line to get your consult.
Due to the problems encountered today, I learned that a toll-free number we occasionally used for this website is no longer working, and in fact was cancelled without our knowledge by a web provider and was evidently re-appropriated by the telecommunications carrier to another company promoting questionable products! After more than four hours on the phone and the Internet trying to resolve the situation, I am still working on a solution. I apologize to all of you who called that number and were surprised by something that had nothing to do with this website or my services. I should have caught it sooner, but the downside of being too busy is that things get overlooked, when they shouldn’t. (Thus…the need for some days off now and then…and occasional delays in my response.)
I’m not the only one who feels harried at the moment, not by a long shot. Which takes me to the very thing I’ve been meaning to write about for the last month or so: the condition of this world and your place in it.
This has been a difficult season the world over: flooding and severe storms in the UK, volcanic eruptions, polar vortices, record low temperatures, record heat and wildfires in Australia, unexplained booms in the sky and shakes on the ground, severe drought in the western U.S., bizarre winter wildfires in the U.S., rumors of war, political intrigue, and much more. This has caused people quite a bit of spiritual unbalance and emotional malaise: travel agencies report that record numbers have taken flight into the South for a little “peace” from the relentless cold and the endless expanse of winter’s dull gray.
Most of the people who visit this website are looking for help with energy problems in their lives. I am most gratified that many of them find help inside these digital pages because this site exists to help, comfort, and serve. There is much more to be written, but the foundation of all that I write is one principal that cannot be ignored: each one of you must engage in a daily spiritual practice and good energy management if you are to rise above the state of the world and the increasing difficulties that are making their way onto the world stage at this epic stage of human history.
Life, for every single person, grows increasingly difficult as it becomes exponentially complex. American society has become so extensively complicated that we are witness to the beginnings of social unraveling. Things that shouldn’t break, break or malfunction surprisingly often, and with ever greater consequences. (Think Hanford nuclear power plant and Fukishima, for instance.) Accountability for failures, official and otherwise is most often deferred, which leads to no correction or positive change. Complexity has led us into a society where people go through twelve stages to do something that should take one or two stages; it has muddled our thinking and blunted natural reason…the kind of reason that has enabled our species to survive. Examples? Endless daily rules and the legal system itself are now masters instead of servants; politicians have become self-serving, psychopathic criminals, hopeless hypocrites, or puppets, or anything but representatives of the people; corporations have become political powers full of manipulating players instead of businesses; educators indoctrinate and don’t teach; religions preach love, forgiveness, and brotherhood but don’t practice; medicine purports to heal but makes far more people sick than it ever helps; institutions that are supposed to work for the greater good are instead, veiled instruments of destruction. A traffic stop today can get you tased. If you live in some states, you can go to jail for an unpaid bill. Something misnamed “family services” has become a bogeyman, a stalker of families, according to countless stories here and abroad. Your five year old can be detained by police if he steps out of line in kindergarten. These are extreme times, and these are the years of destruction to the fabric of a formerly free society.
How do you deal with life? What will you do to connect to the Infinite Spirit within you? How can you ever connect to the sacred identity you were born with… but now cannot seem to find in all the chaos and callousness?
Answer: You can be serious about cleaning your energy field. Have a daily meditation and a Light protection exercise. Love yourself and love others. Do not let the world make you afraid or hardened in heart, but rise up and be a warrior for goodness and truth. Be steady in the storm. In the realm of Spirit, it is always Springtime. Connect to that truth, even when the world is in a Big Chill, bereft of love and light, sanity and justice. I know who you are, and with a little daily effort on your part, you can come to discover this, as well.
Now is the time for you to be the spiritual Jedi you were born to be. Don’t just “try”…how many of you say this…for as Yoda said, “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” See the clock? It’s talking to you. It says, my friends, that it’s time to do. It’s time to thaw the Big Chill and warm the earth with your Light. And all of life will thank you for it.
Blessings, from my heart to yours.
