The Ukraine, the missing plane, so many situations being interpreted in so different many ways. Sometimes I find myself in so much confusion or I face such uncertainty – and sometimes even adversity – that it just seems to overwhelm me.
We all have those times, don’t we? I personally need a way of dealing with them, as Archangel Michael warned me I would perhaps three months ago. A way of dealing with confusion and chaos, uncertainty and adversity.
My natural response at times like these, as longtime readers will know, is to look for the ground under my feet. I look for what I stand on. What principles guide my life? And what is the first principle?
What three square feet of ground do I plant myself on? What do I own and what do I hold to, no matter what?
And for me the answer to all of that is the service of the Divine Mother. I feel abashed saying it. It’s like acknowledging you have a girlfriend in grade two. But it’s true nonetheless. And I think I need to share something about it.
Two years ago, I believe, the Mother said on An Hour with an Angel that she knew that I had served her all my life. I had. It was true, not like I’ve served her all that well. But yes. How would I have known she would notice?
Ever since I read the Bible or the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna, I’ve loved and served the Mother. Those two books awakened the love of the Mother in me.
And that one word of encouragement, recognition, and acknowledgment from her was worth more to me than diamonds and rubies.
On a second occasion, Archangel Michael granted me and a friend the knowledge that when we listen, the Mother listens; when we speak, the Mother speaks.
When he said it, it knocked me over. What an honor and privilege. Whatever I may have wanted in life was toast after that. What does the Mother want?
I haven’t acknowledged the change in my life that that statement made and I haven’t based my life on it to date. It’s been in unconscious awareness, in incubation; not in conscious awareness, in the forefront of my attention. But it’s up to awareness now and the challenge is there.
It’s true. The service of the Mother is the ground I stand on and I’ve been too reticent to say it.
The Mother is the Kingdom of Heaven. Seek ye Wisdom (Sophia, the Mother) and her ways and all else shall be added unto you. The Mother can be known; the Father cannot. The Mother leads the devotee to the Father.
When confusion and chaos, uncertainty and adversity hit me and almost knock me over, the ground that I stand on is and has to be the service of the Mother and Her Divine Plan.
“Alone I am and different, because I prize and seek my sustenance from the Mother.” (Lao-Tzu, Way of Life, 72.)
