We are dropping our masks to reveal our authentic selves. Please take extra self-care if the process is involving a great deal of disappointment, stress and tears. Some of the kindest things you can do for a distressed, ill or dying person is to offer your empathy and carefully chosen words in support of a stress-free and peaceful environment for them and also for those around them. We often don't appreciate others until after they're gone. Nicola Tesla and Vincent Van Gogh are classic examples of this! They both suffered much by being vilified, poverty-stricken and unacknowledged in life by those without the ability to recognise their talents.
From the moment we're born we start dying. Along the way we discover the purpose of life is to live fully so we may die well. Many have mastered the living well, however very few cultures and communities have mastered the art of dying well. Ram Das shines a light on some dying processes in his video 'Perspectives on Death'.
Those who have pre-existing or recent illnesses may be finding their weakest physical or emotional/mental areas acting up - as I too am experiencing after the heart-attack on November 26th. Strange as it may sound I have so much to be grateful for as I've been asking to discover 'like-hearted' and 'like-vibrational' new friends to join me and my valued 'old friends' who always connect with such sincerity and thoughtfulness. To my absolute joy miracles and High Magic are bringing kin to me at this auspicious time and I can only wonder at the future outcomes of these meetings.
Some people are showing their negative true colours too, so when their self-absorption, excuses, preciousness, tantrums, avarice, violence, mischief, hatred, apathy, cruelty, disinterest, punitiveness, or ineptitude show up - be real about it, be discerning and make new decisions if necessary. If you have an issue with someone, deal with it quickly with as much careful consideration and self-knowledge as possible. Remember, you're unlikely to find appropriate role-models among political leaders so it's advisable to look to the ones you follow for inspiration to inspire!
Sadly for many throughout the world, the challenges of 2020 look set to multiply in 2021 but we CAN change the trajectory of some of the mayhem already in motion. These current issues demand that the 'little boys' inside men's bodies and 'little girls' inside grown women's bodies urgently need to GROW UP into full maturity. Infantile behaviour is displayed not only among many world leaders but others in every strata of society - which is why it's essential that YOU AND I always strive for greater self-control, co-operation and right action.
Reflect, empathise, initiate, ask, observe and act with awareness. A good signpost to adult maturity is to never assume anything about anyone and another and to 'sleep on it' before delivering ultimatums or threats you may later regret. Do not rely on default conversations, criticism of others and gossip masquerading as 'friendships'.
I wish YOU perfect clarity, kindheartedness, lots of belly laughs and a pain-free rebirth. Please take exceptional care of yourself and others in your milieu. The best suggestion I have if you're helping someone who is suffering is the age-old adage "Treat them in the way you'd like to be treated."
