I said earlier that I’m not in the habit of naming the names of people we visit with or recounting what they said. That’s so that the next people we meet don’t recoil in terror when we approach for fear of appearing on the blog.
But I can summarize some of the things we’re seeing. And show you some of the people we met.
But before I do, I have to acknowledge that the opinion I formed of the places we’ve visited where I said I met uniformly happy and amicable people was … well, battered a bit by an incident in one major city.
Bizzarre behavior reined in it and it was returned by the opposite side (since quarrels always erupt in polarity) as equally-bizarre behavior. I felt deflated. But I had to admit that the hope I had that we had experienced a universal up-shift in vibration took a bit of a hit. Not quite there yet as a society.
Now some of my impressions. So much of what we saw confirmed the Company of Heaven’s descriptions of us. They’re telling us how masterful we are. Did we find evidence that we’re masterful?
Yes, we did. We spent a good part of today listening to a lightworker spiritual teacher whose comprehension is peerless. We listened to a Viet Nam vet who knew the war was misguided and even wrong and refused to act out by fragging an officer or other radical ways of expressing dissent.
He obeyed his officers, refrained from becoming bitter and left the service at the first opportunity. He returned to the U.S. and took up his life with minimal disruption even though he’d missed out on important years. He has no bitterness over those years but is working for Ascension.
We met a couple who must have been in their eighties who could sing, do yoga, hike, camp outdoors, build archery bows – have I missed out anything, Kathleen?
We met a man who had mastered so many disciplines that I asked him to tell me what he hadn’t done, rather than what he had. That matched a woman in San Francisco who was a quantum physicist, counsellor, healer, intuitive, business analyst … can I stop now please?
Is this not whom you’d expect to meet? I could go on and on – the woman who turned her block onto music rather than shooting each other, the woman who organized a complete rescue operation for a homeless single mother, the woman who’s going to address LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgendered) rights as far as Africa (where being gay can be punishable by death). No small risk there,
Or the two women who radiated universal love – in Ashland and San Diego. I think you get the picture.
These were all masterful individuals.
What else did we see? We saw that many people suffered from chronic isolation. They have a few friends or family members they can talk to and that’s it.
Many people shared for perhaps an hour when we gave them their turn to share. Some shared for numerous hours, after the meet-up ended. People needed a listening and they needed it badly. And that’s the first and most important function that the meet-ups served. And that, I think, is the first and most important outreach that lightworkers need to make to and with each other: They need to give each other a good listening.
People seemed to unwind when they had a chance to tell their story completely.
Think of it as a drought of listening in California. People need to be heard.
What else did we learn?
We learned that people are already at work. They have their ideas worked out. How many people have we met who plan to open health centers? How many are tending to the homeless and single mothers? How many are writing new theories, breaking new ground?
This was not a gathering of sleepwalkers. This was a gathering of the awake and aware.
We really got the price that some people pay for agreeing to be awake and aware. They pay a tremendous price in loneliness and a lack of being known and understood.
That is the single biggest learning I got from our travels so far. Kathleen may have a different view of matters.
Other trends among lightworkers? Many of us, not all, have led difficult lives – sexual molestation, rape, poverty, abusive parents, on and on. But most of us have recovered and appreciate that that part of our lives played some part in our preparation for lightwork.
Many are now sharing what they learned to help out others still caught in those situations. This was probably a major purpose behind going through such trauma.
Here’s a surprising one. And Kathleen first pointed this out: everybody we met served Archangel Michael. It was amazing hearing people who were not readers of the blog say that Archangel Michael came to them recently. We all seem to be serving Michael.
Probably another similarity is that we were all oriented towards service. Some knew their planet of origin, dimension and kingdom. Some their purpose. But not many. To those who didn’t know their purpose, we asked them what they loved to do. What gave them pleasure? What was their passion? Because it’s in that area that they’ll find their mission.
We hear the quotation a lot that whatever we dream we can do, we’d best begin it. The thing about beginning it sooner rather than later is that we pass through the learning curve sooner. Travelling has its own learning curve and Kathleen and I know we’ll be doing more travelling in the future. So we’re getting a headstart on learning about travel.
I may not be able to keep up the pace of posting every day, On top of all that we’re doing of a day, it can be a bit gruelling.
That’s an up-to-the-minute report. We definitely are tremendously impressed with the lightworkers we’ve met. It’s been a privilege to be welcomed into your midst … and the pleasure was all ours.
