I called upon the Angels, as I often do before writing these notes, and asked what needed to be conveyed to those taking the time out of their busy schedules to read this. The reply: steadfastness. I was prompted to pull up a definition on my laptop.
stead·fast adjective resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering.
synonyms: loyal, faithful, committed, devoted, dedicated, dependable, reliable, steady, true
Upon further inquiry as to what exactly we need to apply this quality to, the answer came, “Shining the light of the Eternal Holy One which abides in the Inner and Uppermost chamber of your Being.”
“So, basically shining our inner light?”
This may sound a little contrived on my part, but nonetheless I have learned to trust that connection with Divine guidance that comes from beyond the mind. We are collectively being sung an ‘evil lullaby’ (their words, not mine) designed to lull us into complacency, business-as-usual, fear and even aggression toward our brothers and sisters. But it is a sleight of hand that is radically exposed by steadfastly shining our Divine brilliance.
How does one get to a state of Divine brilliance? Through the eye of the needle, the narrow gate, a passageway that can only be navigated when we are completely stripped down of our ‘possessions.’ I interpret that to mean stripped of this false sense of self that we mistakenly identify as our ‘riches.’ This passageway requires brutal vulnerability on our part.
Let’s face it: this moment in human history is anything but business-as-usual. And this is precisely what we volunteered for, you Glorious Beings of Love and Courage. I speak to everyone when I say there is no more eluding or circumventing the painful inner work of laying down our ‘riches’ and being willing to walk the passageway utterly naked. And to be clear this willingness is far more than the ego’s selfish proclamation about “me and my enlightenment.” It embodies the understanding that the Truth we so desperately desire, we must want not only for ourselves, but for all our brothers and sisters across the globe; no exceptions.
As always, it is our hope that the contents of this issue will bring you to a step closer to shining your Divine brilliance.
