A letter for Holy Week and Pesach
My Dear Friends
My heart is broken and I am filled with grief at the news of the pending circumstances as a result of this virus; the numbers and statistics that are bombarding us and that describe such destruction in terms of all areas of our lives. It is overwhelming.
And, it is Holy Week. In the Christian tradition, we are moving through the culmination of Christ’s teachings, through the crucifixion which leads to the Great Resurrection,
It is also Passover or Pesach. And we are in our homes in prayerful pose, asking that this Angel of Death pass over our homes.
This is not an accident. Or a coincidence. It is our great opportunity.
It is not enough to say that I am safe as it is happening “out there” or that I can just ignore “it” and not look and stay to myself in this isolation. For where am I not present, sayeth the Lord? Is not our Divine Mother “out there” holding each and every individual who is facing this crisis in fear? The Great I AM – where am I not? That is me in that hospital bed alone and that is me desperate as I lose my job. And that is me, holding a respirator to someone’s sweet face hoping it is enough.
We have wondered if “thoughts and prayers” are enough. And, I say, YES.
IN WHAT IS CALLED THIS QUARANTINE AND ISOLATION, THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE NOT ONLY ENOUGH, THEY ARE MEDICINE AND YOUR CAPACITY TO ADMINISTER THIS FIRST SOOTHES YOUR OWN HEART AND AS THIS HAPPENS, YOU BECOME QUIET AND STILL,
THEN, IN THAT STILLNESS, THE LIGHT THAT REFLECTS THE FULL MOON SHINES AGAIN INSIDE OF YOU AND OUT OF THAT LIGHT, YOU CAN PROJECT INTO THE WORLD THROUGH LOVE, YOUR LIGHT.
DID I NOT SAY, “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD” AND DO I NOT CALL YOU NOW TO BE IN THE WORLD AS A WITNESS THAT EVEN IN THIS TERRIBLE TIME, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS?
YES, THIS IS DIFFICULT. IT WILL TAKE GREAT DETERMINATION FOR YOU TO TURN YOUR MIND INWARD, BUT NOT AWAY FROM ANYONE OR ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. YOU ARE TURNING INWARD TO FIND THAT GREAT SPACE OF COMPASSION THAT WHEN YOU THEN SEE THE IMAGES THAT ARE SO FRIGHTENING, YOU BRING THEM INTO YOUR HEART, AS THE DIVINE MOTHER GENTLY EMBRACES HER CHILDREN AND HOLDS THEM. NOW. ALWAYS.
WE ENTER INTO HOLY WEEK, AND PASSOVER AND ON WEDNESDAY, THE LIGHT OF THE FULL MOON – AND WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE OF SERVICE AS WE FACE THE WORLD WITH OUR HEART AND ARMS WIDE OPEN. EMBRACING ALL WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE SO POWERFUL, BECAUSE YOU ARE. WE ARE ALL CALLED TO A FEAST THAT APPEARS TO BE SO SAD BUT WHEN WE FILL OUR HEARTS AND MINDS AGAIN WITH LIGHT, AND WE TRANSMIT THIS TO THE WORLD, THE WORLD IS TRANSFORMED AND DURING THIS COMING WEEK, WE ARE ALL CALLED TO HELP DIMINISH THE DARKNESS OF FEAR AND DEATH.
WE CAN DO THIS.
WE ARE HERE TO BE A PRESENCE IN THE WORLD AND IT IS OUR DUTY NOW TO SIT IN THE GREAT SILENCE AND BREATHING DEEPLY, RECEIVE THE INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THEN, WITH EACH EXPIRATION, TRANSMIT THE GREAT PEACE THAT PASSES UNDERSTANDING.
THANK YOU FOR THIS GIFT THAT YOU ARE.
I LOVE YOU AND I BLESS YOU AND IN NAMASTE I BOW TO YOU.
NOW AND ALWAYS
AND IN ALL WAYS
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING THIS MESSAGE AND FOR CHOOSING AGAIN HOW TO BE IN THE WORLD.
THANK YOU FOR ANSWERING A CALL FOR HEALING, LIGHT, LOVE AND PEACE,
FOR ALL BEINGS, WITHOUT EXCEPTION.
