You are transitioning at a much more rapid pace than we expected. But you have adjusted with each new shift so you do not understand how fast you have shifted. Perhaps you are not part of the protests popping up throughout the world. Perhaps you remain in the life you had before you started this wondrous transition. Your internal shifts have forced and encouraged you to move quickly into your role.
Perhaps some people who were important to you are no longer. Not because they are different, but because you are. You no longer wish to care take them or be a victim of their antics. You have claimed your inner-power. Only those of you who do not believe you are strong enough to be both a unique individual AND a valued member of society will accept victimization or care taking. Both roles place you in a personal prison.
You accepted victimization by your governments and expected care taking in return. You accepted victimization by your employers and expected financial rewards for doing so. You accepted victimization by your children and expected them to love and care for you in exchange. Or, you were the care taker and expected those you cared for to reward you as you deemed appropriate.
Sometimes such hopes, beliefs and sacrifices worked – sometimes they did not. But none were generated by your inner-being. All were created by society to fit a particular need. Only a generation ago, most expected to work for one company their entire working lives and receive a generous pension for doing so. Less than one hundred years ago, most benefits you now expect from your governments were created. The concept of a teen-ager was not understood two or three generations ago.
As your structures shifted, so did your sacrifices and expectations. All of which was appropriate in the Old Age of fear. You no longer live in the Old Age. And so your expectations are shifting.
You do not work long hours in the hopes that you will receive a pension at the end of your work life. You no longer believe such pensions exist. You no longer feel the need to care for your adult children at the expense of your life, just because they are not willing to care for themselves. You do not feel the need to support a government that does not care about you.
That is how you are shifting. You are not waking up one day with a protest sign in your hands. But slowly, in your mind, you are awakening to your personal power and needs. Both of which circumvent victimization and care taking.
What is the result of your awakening? You will find yourself in a life that is joyful and fun. End of story. But your transition from fear, victimization and care taking to claiming your personal power is amazing to behold.
You do not necessarily understand your progress – but we do. Compare your transition to learning to read. First you learned your alphabet. You put those letters together to form words. Then you put the words together to create a story. And once you mastered the “See Jane run” stories, you moved on to more advanced books until you were comfortable reading college level materials. You never noted the steps required to read college materials – you just expected to know how to do so once you entered college. The same is true now. You are not fully aware of your progress.
We have told you that you must decide now if you wish to continue with your transition. You can no longer be upset with your government and pleased that your adult children need care taking. They are the same.
Some of you hope that your transition will shift only certain segments of your life. That is not possible. Once you acknowledge your care taking and victimization roles – whether in the corporate world or your family – you will no longer accept either. That is, unless the fear of losing that piece of your life is more important than claiming your inner-power.
That is what we were speaking of last week. It is time to decide if you wish to stay stuck to the bottom of the vegetable soup pot or to swirl around to find your new world.
You cannot shift one segment of your life and expect other segments to continue as has been true in the past. This is a personal revolution of the greatest magnitude. Just as you are either pregnant or not pregnant, you cannot be of the New Age in one segment of your life. You accept your inner-power or you do not. That is your decision.
Even though you may be concerned about others, it is now at a different level. Instead of feeling the need to care take or be a victim of their actions, you wonder why they continue to live the life they have chosen – one of victimization and care taking. So too is it true for your work world, governments and all structures.
You have moved beyond learning your alphabet to understanding college materials. And you have done so in a matter of months. Phenomenal. Some of you are fearful of letting go of the need to be a victim or a care taker. That is fine. You are swirling in the pot of vegetable soup if you are questioning your motives and needs. It is those of you who firmly believe you do not need to let go of care taking or victimization in ALL areas of your life who are becoming stuck to the bottom of the pot.
You are moving. You are transitioning. You are swirling. Celebrate your wondrous new thoughts and directions. You are moving into your life of joy.
So be it. Amen
