“May God stand between you and harm - And all the empty places where you must walk.”
- An Old Egyptian Blessing.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is
That we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves:
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God
That is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people
Permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.”
- Nelson Mandela.
The following are quotes by James from the Wingmakers in an interview with Kerry Cassidy.
“The Earth is not shifting to a new dimension in order to raise its consciousness and ascend to a higher state. Nor are the fortunate few going to be swept along because they did something better than others and therefore they are the chosen. We, as a human family, are being prepared to live as Sovereign Individuals upon Earth. Will this happen in 2012? No.
2012 will feel like any other year for most people. There is no year or specific time that will define the era of transparency and expansion, the rise of the Sovereign Individual. It is happening quietly in the most unexpected places. People are beginning to see that what has been encoded within their human instrument is a system of control, deception and manipulation; and at some deeper level, they glimpse a new clarity, as fleeting as it might be. They perceive themselves to be more than a system of feelings, and thoughts packaged inside a body. This is what is to come ---- people awakening from a virtual reality inside a virtual reality.
Earth is part of this new transparency. Nature has already donned this new apparel and wears it proudly, but humans have not noticed for our programs lack the perception. It will be, in part, through Nature that the human family will be awakened, and Earth is preparing for this eventuality. When it occurs, it is not because Earth is vengeful, or God, working through Earth, is delivering His wrath. It is Earth/Nature expressing its new transparency and expansion in its own way.
All of the energy, efforts, attention and learning that are placed on the ascension process are a diversion from your own realization of the Sovereign Individual – you. It is as if you have pursued a shadow in favour of the substance. The ascension pathway is ensconced in the comforts of gurus and masters – both physical and interdimensional – that supposedly support your journey into the Light and Love of God. Along this journey you see how it absolves you of responsibility related to this world's real conditions of hunger, inequality, rape, war, abuse, servitude, illness, racism and a hundred other maladies. The absolution comes in the form of your journey itself. The diversion- the separation.”
The “Wingmakers” site is a fascinating one. If interested Googol www.wingmakers.com -Then I suggest go to the Neruda Interviews for a start and at some point check out the Lyricus Discourses. It will open up a whole new world for you to reflect on.
For the next little while I will weekly present in this column the quotes from others who I greatly respect and feel are well worth quoting. If you wish to comment my e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, and happy holidays! – Michael.
