    Inspirational Common Sensical Advice for This Moment

    Post  Inanna on Sun Oct 17, 2010 2:12 pm

    You Were Made For This!!

    My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.

    You are right in your assessments. The lustre and hubris some have aspired to while endorsing acts so heinous against children, elders, everyday people, the poor, the unguarded, the helpless, is breathtaking. Yet, I urge you, ask you, gentle you, to please not spend your spirit dry by bewailing these difficult times. Especially do not lose hope. Most particularly because, the fact is that we were made for these times. Yes. For years, we have been learning, practicing, been in training for and just waiting to meet on this exact plain of engagement.

    I grew up on the Great Lakes and recognize a seaworthy vessel when I see one. Regarding awakened souls, there have never been more able vessels in the waters than there are right now across the world. And they are fully provisioned and able to signal one another as never before in the history of humankind.

    Look out over the prow; there are millions of boats of righteous souls on the waters with you. Even though your veneers may shiver from every wave in this stormy roil, I assure you that the long timbers composing your prow and rudder come from a greater forest. That long-grained lumber is known to withstand storms, to hold together, to hold its own, and to advance, regardless.

    In any dark time, there is a tendency to veer toward fainting over how much is wrong or unmended in the world. Do not focus on that. There is a tendency, too, to fall into being weakened by dwelling on what is outside your reach, by what cannot yet be. Do not focus there. That is spending the wind without raising the sails.

    We are needed, that is all we can know. And though we meet resistance, we more so will meet great souls who will hail us, love us and guide us, and we will know them when they appear. Didn't you say you were a believer? Didn't you say you pledged to listen to a voice greater? Didn't you ask for grace? Don't you remember that to be in grace means to submit to the voice greater?

    Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good.

    What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts, adding, adding to, adding more, continuing. We know that it does not take everyone on Earth to bring justice and peace, but only a small, determined group who will not give up during the first, second, or hundredth gale.

    One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these – to be fierce and to show mercy toward others; both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity.

    Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.

    There will always be times when you feel discouraged. I too have felt despair many times in my life, but I do not keep a chair for it. I will not entertain it. It is not allowed to eat from my plate.

    The reason is this: In my uttermost bones I know something, as do you. It is that there can be no despair when you remember why you came to Earth, who you serve, and who sent you here. The good words we say and the good deeds we do are not ours. They are the words and deeds of the One who brought us here. In that spirit, I hope you will write this on your wall: When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for.

    We are great not because we never fall... but because we fall and rise again and again...

    "When a great ship is in harbor and moored, it is safe, there can be no doubt. But that is not what great ships are built for"

    So true!
    Thank you for this dear sweet nana.

    This goes hand in hand with the post I made about not trying to save the whole world, but instead to try to "save" oneself and by the mere act of doing this, we do in fact save the World.

    I talked about this with some friends and their reaction was... "well it's easy to say, but doing it is another matter"

    You know it requires a changed perspective on things since what does happen around us can be so disheartening and seem so unfair at times. But whatever we do does have an impact on the greater scheme of things.

    We are great not because we never fall... but because we fall and rise again and again...

    "Rise and Rise again and again like the Phoenix from the Ashes until the Lambs become Lions and The Rule of Darkness is no more!!"

    I Love you all beautiful Dragons!
    In the Light of The One,

    Thanks for your response, sweet sister. YES, you're right! ... Senora Estes IS mirroring your thoughts about not TRYING to "save the world" ... but rather to try to BE OURSELVES and THEREBY do our "best bit" in helping to "Save the World." maybe i should have put this in THAT thread instead (feel free to move it, Admin). This seems like an IMPORTANT message from where "i'm at" right now ... cause it's always so "tempting" to get CAUGHT UP in whatever is the "disaster de jour" and to FRITTER AWAY our PRECIOUS Energy in negative, unproductive "weeping & gnashing of teeth" !

    Thanks too, sister Xeia, for the beautiful picture and poetic words of inspiration ... we can ALWAYS Count on You, magnificent Woman, for Inspiration ... Nourishment for our Spirits !

    i luv luv luv you ! flowers
