So what did we learn from this incredible journey from one end of the Western United States to the other? From the warm and semi-tropical San Diego to the chilly and raining Northwest? Brrr…. Who turned the thermostat down?
Before starting in on that subject, I’d like to repeat our thanks to you for having made this journey possible. Reader donations met us at each step of the way, just in time to gas up or take a motel for the night. Often places to stay were available. We had some pretty wonderful meals along the way.
One lightworker lent us his temporary phone, which saved us again and again. Over and over again we were gifted and sent on our way.
Had we considered this trip before we left Vancouver for Lake Tahoe, we probably would have dropped the idea like a hot potato as definitely not feasible. But viewed from Lake Tahoe, a quick sprint seemed just about possible, with your help.
The first thing that comes to mind is that we received a pretty interesting snapshot of the lightworkers who came to share their stories with us. And let me emphasize that our format was to begin with every member of the group having as much time as they needed to tell their story, to say whatever they wished us and the rest of the group to hear.
There’s a line of research in psychotherapy that holds that “story” is bad. “That’s just your story,” people say. “Stay out of your story.” Etc.
But lightworkers have been raised in a society where people considered us nuts, conspiracy theorists, tin-hats, etc. Many people have never been able to communicate what they hold true and dear or the work they’ve been faithfully involved in. They’ve never had a chance to tell their whole story.
Kathleen and I regard it as absolutely essential that people right off the bat be given the opportunity to say how it’s been for them and of course that’s going to take the form of their story. Their narrative. Their personal history.
Many people took an hour and some many more, but they had a chance to tell their full story. I know how amazing the impact is of having that extent of listening.
Listening is loving. I suppose you could say that that was a major learning for me on this trip.
We feel so blessed for having been let into your lives by bearing witness to the history of your lives. What we heard we’ll probably never forget.
We heard from you a story of persistence in the face of adversity, a persistence that cannot be explained by ordinary factors.
Many, many people had difficult lives to begin with – parents who were verbally, physically, or sexually abusive.
Some had been told that that was a pre-birth contract that showed them what they didn’t want in their lives, how it was for many terrestrials, and what situations they needed to address to help the terrestrial collective out of the situations the lightworkers had been through. Some hadn’t been told anything but were responding to a deep issue and a deep inner urge.
On top of all the illnesses that some people took on, the traumatic memories of damaging interactions, the poverty and even in some cases homelessness that people suffered through, the lightworkers we met (and some were homeless now and some had been homeless previously in their lives) have kept working for causes like homelessness, hungry children, animal rescue, aiding the dying – I could go on and on.
Now why didn’t these folks simply jump off the wagon or say to heck with society and go off to Fiji?
I can only guess what it is but that guess would be their deeply-felt commitment to the Mother (or God if you prefer) to work for the betterment of Gaia and her community of souls at this time. And they have done that, without any community around them, in some cases without a single friend to talk to or share their dreams with.
Kathleen said that most of the people we met were polymaths (people who can enter a wide variety of fields or disciplines and feel at home). I don’t have a way of measuring or deciding who’s a polymath and who’s not. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the lightworker community in general has a much higher rate of polymaths than society at large. Good Nova-Earth construction skills.
They were all socially-concerned. They all showed a love for humanity, or for animals, or for the environment, or for life.
They were all action-oriented. We did meet lightholders on the way – contemplatives and meditatives. But we didn’t have as much in common at this juncture as with lightworkers.
Those here to hold the light and love are not necessarily as attracted to the work of building Nova Earth as we are – and vice versa. At least at this point in the undertaking.
I believe that when Nova Earth is created, the lightholders will assume a leading role.
But we’re the construction crew, the ground crew. We’re building the structures and the higher-dimensional ways of being, for the individual and for society.
We’ll be writing the new laws. We’ll be making work equitable. We’ll be seeing that all have what they need. We’ll prepare the setting into which the lightworkers migrate when the time is right.
Everyone was generous. None seemed naturally given to judging others. Many issues appear to remain in all of us. None of us was a finished product, especially me. But there was much good humor exchanged.
The lightworkers we met were willing, open, and committed. They shared about themselves without hesitation or holding back.
It was a real pleasure and a great privilege to have them share their lives with us if for however brief a period. I think I can speak for Kathleen as well on that.
Let me stop here. I may need to sleep for a day. But I’ll continue later on my (and perhaps our) report on the state of the lightworker community.
