Wonderful discussion with one of you who is experiencing a lot of criticism for holding the views we hold. It brings up something to be said more widely. If you’re experiencing criticism for your 2012 views, you may enjoy the discussion.
This savvy guy I keep mentioning, John Enright, once said that we’re all of us safely in the herd until one day we want to step away from it because we see a point we can reach which would be better than being here. But we want to remain a “hero” to our friends and family while leaving the herd.
That may not be an easy thing to do. People usually don’t want us to leave the herd. They may oppose us. (See the discussion on “reality suction.”)
When they oppose us, they may scorn us for being wrong or sanctimonious. That is, they may make us a “villain” or a “saint” before they allow us to be a “hero.”
It is hard to allow others to make us wrong and scorn us. The mind wants to fight back, to say “No, I’m not saying that” or “I didn’t mean that. You’re misinterpreting me.”
But, evidently, that is the worst thing to do. That just lengthens our stay in villain or saint. Instead, John suggests that we willingly and patiently pass our time being villain or saint knowing that eventually we’ll reach hero. John’s suggestion can give us the patience to weather the storm.
If we willingly accept being considered villain or saint as the price of being hero, rather than fighting with others, they’ll acknowledge our point of view sooner and accept it after having tried to pry us away from it by subjecting us to scorn.
Partly we get to choose whether we’ll weather the storm as villain or saint and partly people will typecast us one way or the other. But weather the storm we must.
I accept people casting me as villain or saint. The other day I talked with a friend who is opening to 2012. But she is a Christian and I mentioned ascension. She immediately clammed up. I became either villain or saint to her at that moment. Now my job is to weather the storm, not to fight her or try to “convert” her, if I want to emerge as hero.
If I can rest being OK with being considered crazy, then I can weather the storm. But if I can’t, then I need to check to see whether I have a vasana (enter “vasana” in the search box) and process it.
Second point: There is no need to communicate any aspect of what is happening that would shock people. Communicate instead the substance of the changes that are happening to you spiritually as the result of the rising energies on Earth at this end-of-cycle time. Communicate by listening to others more than sharing. That’s what I do.
If anyone wants to know more, you can give them readings. That way they don’t hear it from your own mouth but from something they’ve read. That way they may more readily make the point their own, as something they’ve discovered in their reading rather than as something some crazy person told them.
Being ostracized for being crazy is the peculiar price we pay for being harbingers, early risers. You can be a harbinger, enjoy the experience early, and pay the price or not be one, not enjoy the experience early, and not pay the price.
It has always been so. John the Baptist paid a high price for being a harbinger. Too early ahead of the herd can be dangerous.
If you find yourself annoyed with waiting, you may be looking at these events of the end times through a lens that is not productive. We are going through a process not seeking the end of a journey. The journey never ends. The process is endlessly satisfying.
The thing to do is to keep opening to these wonderful energies. They will do the rest. The potato doesn’t say to the boiling water, get on with it. It just steeps in it. Our job, from my point of view, is to steep in these energies. They will ease our foot off this shore and buoy us up till we reach the other shore. There is nothing to do but keep opening.
For the rest, we have an online community to communicate with. We’ve clustered together to see our way through, to voice our frustrations to and seek reassurance from each other. The Galactic Forum is there for exactly that purpose. And there are other forums – Share11, Prepare4Contact, countless other forums.
Communicate your frustrations. Process your vasanas. Open to the new energies. The rest is laid on, carefully designed and crafted, This process is foolproof. The wise will consciously open to it.
