Message 76: WIND DOWN AND STOP
Seraphin through Rosie, 26th October 2011
R: Dearest Seraphin; apart from feeling tense, as if I am carrying the whole world around in my head, the image of a bus keeps returning to me. I journeyed on such a bus recently. It was split in two halves, joined by a flexible middle part so that it could turn tight corners more easily …
S: Yes, Dearest, and so it is that everyone chooses their own method of transport TO TRAVEL FORWARD ON THE SPIRITUAL ROAD. Many still believe, of course, that the journey is purely physical, that the tarmac under their feet is the only thing they can feel, that the presence of wrinkles on their faces indicates progression on that journey. But we say that all that is secondary, and that wisdom is not acquired purely by moving forward at breakneck sped, but also by stopping, taking detours, covering certain stretches twice with increased awareness the second time around.
Your body is not travelling on a bus; it is your mind which is travelling, giving its attention to what is happening – or what it can recognise – through one specific window. You may travel exactly the same route, in exactly the same bus (in exactly the same body, so to speak) BUT VIEWED FROM A DIFFERENT WINDOW, your experience (which is always a learning experience) WILL BE DIFFERENT.
At the beginning of your incarnation you choose which “encasing” to inhabit, from which you will view your experience. This may be a “bus” of the nature you describe – a large rumbling body with a central pivot, suitable for taking much “on board”, but still capable of negotiating tight corners and situations, although it is not quite designed for this purpose originally. It adapts to circumstances. Or you may choose the form of a sports car – fast and sleek and limited room for company. Or you may choose a bicycle – self-powered, alone, independant, with a very moderate pace.
BUT WHATEVER VEHICLE YOU CHOSE, WHETHER YOU ARE WALKING OR TRAVELLING ON THE FASTEST JET, YOUR POWERS OF PERCEPTION ARE PARAMOUNT. YOUR VIEW DEPENDS ON YOUR ABILITY TO PERCEIVE, WITH THE TOOLS AT YOUR DISPOSAL.
The phenomenon you call DEATH is merely a bus-stop. You get out of the bus and decide which vehicle to take next. You may wish to take a rest at the roadside first, before continuing, in order to digest and fully understand the experience of the last ride before launching into a new one.
This FULL COMPREHENSION and FULL DIGESTION is what is lacking HERE AND NOW on your planet WITHIN YOUR PRESENT LIVES. One appointment, one stint of “work”, one invitation, one dose of “entertainment” follows the next in closer and closer sequence, until all other alternatives are greeted with the panicky statement I JUST HAVEN’T GOT THE TIME. When the volcanoes roar, when the seas are agitated, when commodities are scarce, when chaos spreads due to financial insecurities, will you still be saying that you have “no time” to check out what is going on beyond the rim of your restricted lives? The irony of this is that once the chaos materialises, YOU WILL HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD TO CONTEMPLATE HOW THIS CAME ABOUT.
And we ask you to consider WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON HERE? RETURN TO THE VERY ROOTS OF YOUR BEING, TO YOUR INNER SANCTITY, TO REGAIN AN INSIGHT INTO YOUR REAL NEEDS, YOUR REAL GOALS, YOUR REAL JOYS, instead of accepting the conveniently offered entertainments and solutions and role models offered by your perverse society. It is time to GROW GROW GROW in accordance with your own DIVINE IMPRINT. DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BE COERCED INTO COMPLIANCE AND COMPROMISE, for your combined efforts will bring the next bus-stop nearer, and then a SUDDEN JOLT WILL FORCE EVERYTHING – INCLUDING YOUR EARTH – TO WIND DOWN AND STOP. For if this were to continue, you would be throwing yourselves into self-destruction, and this, Beloveds, YOU WILL TURN AROUND.
This scribe says that she feels as if she is carrying the world in her head, and this is a justified feeling because YOU ARE THE WORLD and THE WORLD IS YOU, and if the earth is under great pressure, stretched to breaking point, then you also (if in alignment and in sympathy with the earth) will be feeling that pressure. KNOW OF THE INTRICATE CONNECTION BETWEEN ALL PEOPLE AND ALL THINGS, FOR YOU ALL SPRING FROM THE SAME SACRED SOURCE, AND YOU ARE ALL CAPABLE OF ACTIVATING THAT CONNECTION.
Shall we take that one step further and say that you have THE WHOLE UNIVERSE in your heads? AND THAT HERE TOO, YOU HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO CONNECT. This you may not believe, and we do not ask you to believe but to investigate further, increasing your knowledge daily, reaching ever deeper into the well of infinite opportunity which will open up before you, should you care to entertain the possibility of its existence.
There is no reason why – in the long run – you should not be able to disembark from your crowded old clattering bus, lumbering awkwardly round corners so that you have to hang onto the poles and straps provided, and embark instead on a space craft with full comforts and high technology – a vantage point which offers a completely new and vastly detailed view through its windows.
So be advised, Dear Ones, of your power and potential in these times of great change, and although you have heard it so often, BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE. We are watching over you to see where your dreams will take you. We love you, Seraphin
