Here in a time of pandemic is what our Divine One gives us:
“Anything uncomfortable that you face, child, is forcing something new from you that you’ve been refusing to try. Did you hear that? Everything uncomfortable is stretching you, by divine design.
The global nuisance of a fast-spreading virus and, in the hardest places, the painful loss it brings, are not coming as a surprise. You have been noticing and mentioning the points of disparity that need balancing, and you’ve been asking without words to feel more compelled to help balance them. This is the way of humanity, so be good to yourself and your neighbors when you acknowledge you have all been complicit.
You do understand this virus as an equalizer, yes? You can’t bully it. No one can pay it off. You can’t leave it up to your brother or sister to clean it up. You can’t hide from it, certainly not behind fear or ignorance, which only crumble in on you in emergency. Your escapes are locked up for now, your goods are no relief, and your followers have scattered.
We are all on a family time out. The sudden slowness you feel in your body and the stillness of life outside your door is not in your mind. Throughout the Earth I’ve declared a family time out.
In the quiet that remains, let in the truth: You all are One; I am with you in that Oneness; we cannot deny our unity, even as it has been neglected.
Material satisfaction has become our entire focus and our idea of bliss solely physical. Acquisition and distraction have become our central energetic aims. Notice even on holiday across sparkling seas, when offered communion with glorious fellow creatures who dwell there, we’ve enclosed our being in floating buildings with casinos and bottomless buffets for security; what security do they offer with a virus aboard? And see our instinct at the first sign of trouble is to buy, buy, buy — without regard for our neighbor or our Mother? What is our ‘net worth’ when productivity and profit grind to a halt?
Everything uncomfortable is stretching you, by divine design.
In this time out, the family we are can’t look away from our rules for sharing what we have. Health care, housing, hand sanitizer … Are we not seeing in spotlight the complex mechanisms and intelligent steering of our government matters, and our leaders’ ability to do their jobs cooperatively is of crucial importance to all of us at once?
Our beautiful children who have been barricaded in unequal, atrocious schools are now released in this time out, many to fend for themselves without food. Aren’t we more compelled to feed them and teach them well when we see them close-up, out from behind the concrete walls? (They’re released alongside others who have instead been barricaded behind trimmed hedges and rigid expectations. Who are they to us now, when sports have stopped, they can’t dance for audiences or outshine friends in classroom rows?)
While we go about the day afraid of a virus, don’t we hope each person we encounter has learned well and holds our well-being as precious — regardless of performance, gender, skin, preference in partners, politics?
Anything uncomfortable that you face, child, is forcing something new from you that you’ve been refusing to try. Did you hear that? Everything uncomfortable is stretching you, by divine design. ”
