There are a great many of those who have been following these messages who could pick one of the words in this title. shaken, stuck, and adrift, to describe the way they are feeling now. We will address each of these in turn in order to bring you an understanding and move you back into what has become familiar energy to you. First, give yourselves a great deal of credit for making grounded, joyful, and appreciative energy feel familiar. That is exactly what is remaking the world you live in.
To those of you who feel that the word shaken best describes your feeling, we first say – and we know you have already thought this – that we told you many times that your world would first need to fall apart. We know you did your best to prepare. We know that you felt prepared. But looking at hot soup and sticking one’s finger into it are quite different experiences. Nevertheless, understanding that nothing will be changed until change becomes truly necessary will help while you become acclimated to this new, but temporary, reality.
Be sure you understand and are ready to participate in building the new loving, compassionate, and sustainable world you have dreamed of. Those who kick over all the old apple carts may not be lovable, but they certainly provide a valuable service in the long run. It is what is done in the aftermath that will count the most.
Now, we have addressed the feeling of being stuck several times before. But we will expand on what we have said a little bit.
First of all, you are not stuck. It is important for you to know this. The feeling of being stuck is just a feeling. It is produced by not being able to relate what you see around you to your expectations. The expectations are the real problem. You are expecting things to look a certain way and they do not. Now, we are not trying to make you look wrong. But please allow us to point out something to you.
Your expectation is created by your imagination from the tools that your mind has at its disposal. And those are mostly, in your current state, either from a history you remember or one that you have been taught. They may seem wonderful, but they are still history.
You have asked for, and you have been promised, a world that you have never seen, a world that no one can teach you about. Does it surprise you that you do not know what getting there will look like? Not only is that true for your outside world, but for your inner world, as well.
As for actually being stuck, nothing in the universe is stuck. It is an impossibility. Energy never rests. Protons, electrons, atoms, etc. hardly could be said to slow down, much less be stuck. The one constant in the universe is change. So you are hardly stuck, you are perhaps a bit impatient.
It is easy for us to be patient. Your future is a probability that we already see as accomplished. Please notice that we did not use the word possibility. If you can understand that effects are unavoidable aspects of causes, then you will know that you are making the new world that you desire unavoidable with every breath you take, every thought, every prayer, and every loving and compassionate act. This will raise your feeling. You will not feel stuck.
Now, the feeling of being adrift is a different case. There are actually some of you that are changing direction in your lives. Imagine how that would feel if you were on a ship somewhere. The waves and currents were all there, but you knew your direction and were not wavering from it. Then, suddenly, you were given a new destination, a new direction. There would be a short period when the waves and currents tossed you about. But once you established a new momentum, you would not feel adrift anymore.
You may wonder what that new destination might be. But don’t try to fabricate it out of what you know. Remember, this will be a new world. Let your guides and teachers reveal it to you as they can. You may actually be creating something that has not existed before. Give your permission and live each moment with gratitude and allowance. Be the best tool in the toolbox. Creator did not create a toolbox full of useless objects. And there are no hammers in places where hammers are not needed.
What can you learn today? How can you improve today? Who can you help today? With those purposes in mind, you will never be adrift. And your new destination will reveal itself as a desire you did not know you had or abilities that delight you.
Know that you are living in the greatest moment of change your world has known. And further, know that the reason for this is that it is reflecting the greatest change humanity has ever made within herself.
