Sometimes when we face significant stress – as many of us are facing now- in the aftermath of the Corona experience, economic depression, and now, racial unrest- it might feel so overwhelming, that we just want to check out.
It is too painful to watch and feel all the feelings that are generated by the images we see flash across our screens. There is nowhere to hide. And less places to gather with lockdown even as countries slowly reopen.
How can we truly be present?
What are we being present to?
It is much easier to exit, mentally check out, to numb, to distract, and maybe even run.
Yet wherever we seem to go, there we are.
Here is what I heard Mary Magdalene, whom I refer to as Maggie, say to me when I asked her to help me see this differently:
It is hard to be here now when you feel you are alone.
And the feeling of being alone is so deep within the human consciousness.
It may appear that you come alone into this world, live alone in a body surrounded by other bodies and then ultimately die alone.
Yet this is not true.
It appears to be this way.
Yet every step of the way you are held in the lap of Love and Light.
Like a child held close to the bosom of their mother.
If you can see that being here is being with.
Being with Love.
Being with Light.
Being in sure protection always.
Being in gentle arms of forgiveness.
Where else could you be?
Where else would you want to be?
Be here with me.
Be here now.
I am here with you.
Bring to me whatever you see.
Whatever you feel.
Whatever you think.
I will hold it all. Do not be afraid. Do not hide anything.
Let me show you what is real.
Let me show you what is true.
Together we will shine away darkness and comfort all pain.
To gather together.
Let us gather together.
Dear sweet child, I am with you.
Always and forever.
May these words comfort and soothe you wherever you may be, with whatever you may be facing.
