Message: IMMEDIATE RESPONSE AND PREPARING TO RUN
Seraphin through Rosie, 16th Jan 2011

R: Dearest Seraphin, I feel that you wish to discuss with me the topic of IMMEDIATE RESPONSE, in fact I have been lying in bed for half an hour (it is 5.30 am) thinking that you want me to get up and write, but I could not force myself to do it immediately. It reminds me of those dreadful months when my baby daughter could not stop coughing in the night, and when I forced myself to get up so often.

S: Beloved, authentic immediate response is sadly lacking in many areas. The dedication which you showed as a mother was exemplary in a way, and now it is time to show exemplary behaviour to everyone and everything. If we stay with the image of a small child for a moment and observe its behaviour, we will see that every response is immediate. When it falls over it will cry immediately instead of thinking “What if someone sees my tears, what if someone laughs at my weakness?” or “What if someone exploits my mistake?”). If a child is hungry it will cry. It will not think: “Do I have a right to be heard?” or
“What if I lose face by admitting I need something?” And if a child is tired, it will fall asleep right away instead of thinking “Shouldn’t I hold out a bit longer and get this done?” or “Perhaps I will get into trouble if I drop off when I should be paying attention” A child has no notion of this train of thought. It’s joyous response to beauty is just as immediate.

And I ask you: WHY ARE YOU DIFFERENT? WHEN DID YOU LOSE THIS CAPACITY? WHY ARE DELAYS, DELAYS AND YET MORE DELAYING TACTICS SUCH AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOUR LIVES? HAVE YOUR EGOS AND SUBSERVIANCE TO THE POWERS THAT (STILL) BE GROWN SO LARGE THAT YOU ALWAYS ASSESS THE EFFECTS OF YOUR REACTIONS BEFORE YOU RESPOND?

Some will call this your “gut reaction” or following through “intuition” or “hunches”, and they are all part of the same thing, part of an absolute trust in yourself and your ability to respond immediately in an appropriate way.

In scenarios of emergency this is of utmost importance, and this is why I ask you to get up and write this – to practice your response time. It is not for us to determine the specific moment when the emergency will occur, for they will be multiple and varying and are in fact already manifested on various parts of your globe as we speak, but to stress that it is imperative that you are ready to go into action at all times, in matters great and small. This can be practised constantly. There are so many opportunites. Set aside one day for immediate reaction practice. How quick are you to greet a neighbour or passer by? How quickly do you get out of your chair when you see that help is needed? How quickly do you put your arms around someone who is obviously upset or in tears? How quickly do you thank and appreciate? 

We see that your reactions generally are still stilted by a crusted veneer of self-complacency, reluctance to get involved, fear of commitment and anticipation of detrimental consequences. PUT THESE ASIDE IN FAVOUR OF YOUR FELLOW HUMANS. You are not here to mildly engage in fearful limited palid and flighty contact with your fellows, but to enter into wholesome, honest, exuberant, satisfying and mutually beneficial and supportive relationships. 

Even a delay of one second in the response of a mother to her child while in conversation is an indication that a mode of depression is present. This is duly noticed by the child, and this is what it comes to expect in its dealings with others, and it also learns to respond with delay.

And I say to you TRY TO OVERCOME THESE BARRIERS WHICH SEPARATE YOU FROM ETERNAL BROTHERHOOD AND SISTERHOOD. PAVE THE WAY TO GENUINE CONTACT AND SINCERE IMMEDIATE EXPRESSION AND OFFERS OF ASSISTANCE, FOR THIS WILL SERVE YOU WELL IN THIS NEW AGE OF ENLIGHTENED THINKING BORN OF REVELATIONS AND REACTIONS TO THOSE REVELATIONS.

Will you simply hide in shame when you learn about all the deception on this planet? How have you personally assisted and cooperated to further its gross development? How long will it take for you to address this? Will you summon up the courage to “lose face”, to speak immediately, openly and honestly? To drag your feet in these times of unforeseeable change is to hinder the momentum of a new consciousness. PRACTICE INCREASING THE RAPIDITY OF YOUR STEPS SO THAT YOU ARE WELL-PREPARED FOR THE MOMENT WHEN YOU ARE ASKED TO RUN.
