Message 62: THE MAGNET OF UNITY
Seraphin through Rosie, 29th June 2011-06-30

R: Dearest Seraphin, I have been feeling strangely sad today (though there is nothing acutely “wrong”) and feeling so sensitive. I am somehow still in limbo after a long car journey home, during which I observed beautiful scenery, but towards the end I realised that I had little connection to it. I had been on roads – a concrete layer separating me from the floor of the earth – for many hours. This was a shocking realisation for me. Now, when I open a wooden cupboard or walk barefoot over a parquet floor, I feel that I am opening a wound in a tree, and when I hold an onion in my fingers, I feel that I have a whole field in my hands. And when I touch a ceramic bowl or a piece of stone, it is like feeling the inside of the earth …

S: Yes, Dearest: as you spend longer periods of seclusion in nature, as you have recently, your soul will become increasingly desirous of this union with all and you will develop a sensitivity presently blocked out by multiple external sensations, noise and distractions. This BEING STILL, BEING ALERT, BEING AWARE of the movements of plants and animals – however slow they are in comparison to yourself – can bring you balance and renew your sense of wonder and wholeness.

Your infinite sadness at this point is related to the feeling of separation from something of which you are an integral part – a composite of divinely functioning and coordinating particles which you define, rather blandly, as “nature”, but which might be better described as ALL THAT IS, including ALL THAT IS NOT, for without this negative aspect you would not feel compelled to move towards this MAGNET OF UNITY. It draws everyone into its sphere of influence, whether you go willingly, with humility and wonder, or whether you are dragged there screaming and kicking as a result of a series of wake-up calls. You will have to integrate in the end, because this is THE ONY DIRECTION THERE IS. 

Through your awareness of beauty, through your desire to move towards beauty, you can collectively change the face of the planet from a pock-marked, cracked, cemented visage to golden fields of abundant harvests, to playgrounds for fertile and imaginative unfettered minds and healthy joyful living.

And we say: treat the animals as your loved ones, your companions in a future paradise of peace, EXPRESS YOUR GRATITUDE FOR EVERY POTATO BEFORE YOU CONSUME IT, FOR IT IS ALSO A CHILD OF THESE FIELDS, GIVEN IN GENEROSITY FOR YOUR SUSTENANCE. GIVE THANKS FOR EVERY PIECE OF WOOD, CLAY, PAPER, STONE OR NATURAL CLOTH WHENEVER IT TOUCHES YOUR FINGERTIPS, FOR THIS IS PART OF YOURSELF TO BE LOVED AND CHERISHED.
