(Concluded from Part 2.)
Let me now go to one topic that I discussed with the Mother for its educational value to financial wayshowers.
A part of the Mother’s discussion with me may explain a lot of things to many lightworkers who wonder why their lives have been spent in or close to poverty.
Before the Divine Mother left, I asked her for the spiritual reason that she had kept the Nova Earth team so close to the poverty line when it would have been easy to direct a prosperity package to us. Here’s her response:
Divine Mother: The human collective has been in a place of what you may think, and in many ways feel, of spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, material poverty for a very long time, for thousands of years and even far beyond that.
The lightworkers, the loveholders are understanding in the depth, the core, the centre of their beingness, what genuine poverty feels like. We mean everything from illness, to despair, to brutality.
As you are creating and building the new, you have a very deep (your expression) “up close and personal” understanding of what the true meaning of poverty is in the same way you have come to know and understand the true meaning of your spiritual currency.
The other piece of this is, upon this planet, in such flux and transition, most of you (and I say this in the deepest reverence and admiration) have veered away, and through true guidance veered away, from what you have thought of as the mainstream of how in the old realm – which does not serve me – money, abundance, prosperity in the material reality has been earned, received, and achieved.
That has been through control, greed, and lust. (1) As that has been erased, disappearing and reconstructed, there has been this abyss. It has also brought you individually and collectively to the deepest meanings and the values of what you choose – of what is acceptable and what is not and what you are choosing and proceeding to create.
In many ways and in other lifetimes, this would have been considered the vow of poverty, the monastic life, the life of complete service. But it is not meant – let me be very clear – simply to be endured.
Now where you are: you are in a process of truly creating/co-creating individually and as community, but as humans. Do not think that it is simply us keeping the door closed. The door is open and you are proceeding.
I asked Mother again why a prosperity package could not have been sent our way. There still seemed to be a missing piece in the explanation.
DM: You have touched on this very issue [earlier] when you have said that various individuals, who have in fact been blessed in a variety of ways, are afraid. This fear factor which we cannot simply wave a magic wand [and dismiss] has need to be [addressed and erased] in sacred union.
So the fear and the concern, the worry of not surviving or being at the beck and call of inner malicious forces has need to be surrendered.
I repeated the fact that it didn’t seem to make sense to have the ground crew endure so much impoverishment and indebtedness to stay afloat and at our posts. When she took up the topic again, she now revealed what was for me the missing piece.
DM: Because you have agreed that you are on, can we say, the receiving end.
S: So our being [poor] is used as a means to get people to open up [financially]?
DM: To express gratitude, generosity, and unity and to express what is valuable to them.
S: So that is what the spiritual meaning of this is: That we serve that purpose of igniting or inspiring people’s generosity.
DM: That is correct. You are the catalysts.
S: That’s what I needed to know. Thank you, Mother. (2)
Human beings always seem to want to know the “why” of things. Somehow that makes uncomfortable and unpleasant circumstances bearable. I know it did for me.
When I knew the reasons for how we were being dealt with, I felt pacified. The very same reasons for a very tough life may apply to you as well and you also may have agreed to serve as a focal point to inspire other people’s generosity.
Archangel Michael offered me another important piece of reassurance. I told him that I had less and less time for researched articles and he said he didn’t want them right now.
“I beg of you, do not assume that when you write of what you are calling ‘the inner work,’ that this does not have profound effect because the focus of the leadership movement right now is on the inner work.” (3)
That was reassuring because the inner work is “heating up,” so to speak, and the researched work is getting harder and harder to carry out, what with the demands on my time. I hope one person’s journey, written down, can be helpful.
I should add here that numbers of you have written me and said that the financial pieces I’ve written lately have assisted you. I hear you. I’ll be writing more, trying to get at the heart of the quality we call generosity and how to counter the fear that comes up once the Reval is concluded. (4)
The reason I bought currency in the first place was that I wanted to run my own experiments in generosity. I never thought I’d be the subject of one! But I’ll learn either way.
