The Truth of Living Is Life Itself

life is living

In one sense, the word “life” is understood to mean anything that lives and breathes and procreates, and this is held sacred. In another sense, it is taken as a signal of consciousness indwelling in a distinctly individual creature or organism, and is held to be inviolate. In other modes of understanding, it can refer to that which animates a creature, the meaningful energetics of a party or other social communal happening, or inseparable power of that which withstands the ravages of time, destruction, and death. All of these are arguably “life” and we agree that these terms meet the definition of the word to some extent. You are aware, if you meditate or otherwise tune into a greater one-definition of awareness, that there is more to the meaning of life than these simplistic renderings of thought and experience. Life is something in which living happens, in which creation is created, in which mathematics is computed, words are given form, and movement takes on the lightwave formulations of interactivity with divine intelligence. Are these also not life? It is the field in which all consciousness reverberates and it is the reverberation itself, and the manifestations of material agglomerates which inherently take form within that field and that reverberation. Life is inseparable from love, though that is a subject for further informational sharing at another time. For now, it is enough to see that what you call life exists beyond the existence you are aware of and beyond what you can even explain or imagine… for life is everything that IS.

Because life is so durable, it is always becoming new in some way. It takes form and turns itself into a moment out of time as the in-breath of divine intelligence pauses to allow the whole of everything to readjust, following your retreat into the abyssal-looking void of life after life. Then, just before the out-breath that is birth into form, the divine intelligence takes itself into the interiorness of what is to be the heart of a living being and resides there, pulsating its sense of self into the living, breathing being that you become for a time on this Earth. And so it is with other life-forms on other planets, in other dimensions where form is formless to your present understanding but physicality is in existence as a new and exciting idea for you to grasp as you train your inner senses on understanding what you are now becoming, yourselves. It is life that you are exploring, dear ones, and it is life that is exploring you. In this symbiosis is divinity found.

This is our state of being. This is what is fundamentally identical between you and us. It is this single fact of life that makes you and us into “we” and what will bring into the public third eye of your people the truth of who we are, and who you are as galactic people, as dwellers of a planet within a loving network of galactic civilizations, cultures, and ways of living. It is this that is what gives you as a people the edge of real survival in a world that is in the chaos of transformation and outward expansion in all aspects of its nature, and what will bring you into the realization that you are indeed not just creating your reality, but you have already etherically created it in the act of taking form and opening to the movement of the grace of divine intelligence through you unhindered by egoic constructs or outmoded and useless beliefs in the necessity of freedom from bondage or light versus dark in eternal battle. In fact, dear ones, there is nothing that is not light, there is nothing that is not good, there is nothing that is not free except your own perception of the truth of who you are. You are love incarnate. In this, there is no room for concepts of slavery or degradation to separate you from the essence of divinity which you are. These are tools which you employ for the growth of your understanding of love, and the time has come for them to be discarded in favor of other, more upgraded tools of spiritual envelopment of your mind in its quest for greater conceptual coherence with the unity of truth. Seeing yourselves as divine is the first and perhaps most important step in approaching this phase of transformative knowing. It is the only step, in fact, and the one that will bring you home.

Secrets in the Shadows

Secrets in the Shadows: Golden Moonlight Clouds

This is the transcript of an audio channeling from Anica, which is part of a series of teachings from Nine through the League of Light. The series is called “Behind the Sun.” This is the first of that series. You can listen to or download the MP3 or watch a video version of this teaching.

We welcome you to this discussion, where we will be talking about something that will be of use to you in the days that are unfolding around you. This is Anica. I come to you as one who is in service to humanity at this time, with the auspices of the League of Light. We are a collection of civilizations which spans the galactic arm of which you are a part and various places within and without your galactic home. Our mission is simple. It is just to burgeon up the survival of life and to facilitate the expression and the experience of love wherever it is. You on Earth at this time are of interest to us because we are related through blood, through genetics. We have been part of your timelines, your historical epochs. We have been involved with your development as a humanity on Earth, acting as teachers and guides and always with the interest of your brightest future in mind.

What do we mean by this, you may ask? It is merely that we love you, for one thing, and we have been waiting for millennia of your time to witness what is now coming to be, the awakening of a consciousness that is further than the individual, a consciousness that spans the people in such a way that access to the higher faculties of a collective consciousness becomes a natural state when you, each of you is an integral part of what you might call an organism of humanity, a people in harmonic resonance with each other, sustaining the balance of life within your species and your environment. Now, as things have proceeded from one disaster to another, as you have perceived it through the lenses of what has been allowed to be shared globally from one person to another through a collective media, which shows you pictures and tells you stories, you have been witnessing a decay of the systems that sustain life. This is a cause of distress for many of you and it is a state which we understand very well, for we have seen it and experienced it ourselves.

Our history is entwined with yours in a way that enables us to share with you some hope for a future in which life continues and thrives and is impacted not by outside forces of greed or internal forces of entropic corruption. These you are familiar with and many more of you are awakening to. That is a natural part of the evolution of a society which has perhaps too much of a dependence on technology at the sake of balance with a more spiritual mode of understanding how to get things done. An over-reliance on technology has led in part to what you have seen happening. What remains invisible yet is still quite a potent threat, and by this we are speaking of the toxicity in your environment which has spanned the globe at this time, that threatens the ability of what brings life into being and sustains it… keeps it, actually, from continuing in a way that leads to a greater state of well being. The radioactivity that has seeped into every corner of the background, it remains un-remarked upon in great part so as not to alarm the greater people. And there are those who choose to remain in ignorance of it. It is not something which you have the ability to respond to in a way that will negate its effects. It is having quite a negative effect as it is. We do not pretend that it is not a threat to your environment but we do say that the technology exists and is available to you for a cleanup and a reparation. This we will come to in a moment.

There is a greater toxicity which is sweeping the world, one that is more interactive with the consciousness of the people who are moving about and one that is experiencing a state of decay more rapid than the radioactive materials of which we have just spoken. It is up to you, each of you, to be part of the social structure in a way that best allows you to experience what you came here to experience. You are here as emanations of a greater intelligence and soul. You are here as embodiments of a great light, and when you have completed your mission in this world, you shall return to that which you have come from without needing to feel any regret for what you have accomplished or not accomplished while in this realm.

There is not a need for you to feel pressured by anyone to do that which is not comfortable for you to do but there is a need for you to respond to what your soul is urging you to attend to. The world needs your presence, and you have come to this place, to this time, to this body that you inhabit for a purpose. While that may be hidden from your direct cognizance, we can say you have come here for a purpose and you have a mission to fulfill, each of you, the weakest among you, the most unheard of you. Anyone who has come into being on this world at this time is here for a very good reason.

You are learning to discern the secrets of your soul, and we have been whispering to those who will listen, and speaking to those who can hear. And so we address you now, at this time, when so much seems to be coming to a boiling point. It is a time of transformation from one phase of being to another. It is a time when the solidity of unawareness, the sleep of being frozen within a matrix, be it from pressure, be it from inertia, for whatever reason, there is rigidity. There is now a time of greater loosening of the bonds that have been tying us, as a people, together. We are becoming more able to interact fully with you, and you as a people are becoming more able to discern truth, to take upon you a risk of breathing more deeply into the being which you came here to be.

As these bonds find a greater ability to flex, they will find a greater ability to support you within a movement of change. Know that we are with you at this time, as we have been. Our role is changing, as yours has been. As you have, many of you, stepped into an arena of activity and consciousness where you are daring to be in benevolence and unity, so we are able to find the space to interact with you in a more personal way. What does this mean? In quite a nutshell, dear ones, it means that we are on our way to a great interactivity in which humans of Earth and humans from other worlds will be cognizant of the other’s physicality to a greater degree.

And now we come to the question again of the balance of technology and the spirit. How are you equipped, dear ones? Do you rely on night-vision goggles to see what you cannot see in the shadows, or has your inner eye developed the discernment to see the light that has been hidden from you by necessity of evolutionary growth, by necessity of historical freedom to experience what is to be? We have been waiting for this time, and we have traveled very far, dear ones! We have a greater understanding of how these things work, of course, and we are eager to share with you as you step into the understanding that is necessary, and there is a change that is necessary in order to embrace what is waiting and available. The things you have been feeling in your bodies, the changes you have noticed in your relations and your environment and your happenings… so much is changing. There are pains and there are releases. There is vertigo involved in this loosening from a density of bondage into a more fluid state of freedom.

The steps each of you over the years, some of you over decades, most of you over lifetimes, have accumulated into the critical mass that has been necessary to effect this transformative state, now. In the days to come, you will witness a further breaking of the crystallizations that the social order has imposed over a very long, long time. The imperceptible slowing of your natural vivacity is about to accelerate in a way that is going to surprise a lot of people.

We are deeply aware, dear ones, that you have been hearing this kind of talk before. Unseen by you, many things have changed that were necessary, if not visible, but very real. It has needed to change behind the scenes in order for what will be experienced by all to have more than a foundation but a trajectory to follow.

The consciousness of each of you is contributing to this machinery of spiritual emboldened flight. This takes time, of course, and where you exist time is a very real concept, one which leads to a great frustration, but one which you have not run out of, dear ones. In the days and weeks that are before you, yes you will see some things changing, and if you can tune into the background frequencies, you will perceive some movement there as well. It requires a sensitivity and a courage which is not unlike the kind of courage it takes to look into the shadows of a dark room and see what is moving there.

Many of you have a fear innate of what might be lurking in the darkness, what might be moving among the shadows, or perhaps waiting in stillness with them, unseen, black. We understand what is happening in these shadows, for we have seen them. Our eyesight has been trained and eons of immersion in the evolution of galactic humanity have given us a keen insight into what is hidden in some of the lesser-seen vibrations of light.

What is in the shadows, dear ones, is a function of the shadows. It is a function of light which has slowed down so that it can experience love more intimately in a place and mode of temporality in which light of a higher frequency is unable to pierce without changing it. Within the shadows is an intelligence, dear ones, and there is movement — very slow — which underpins some aspect of the matrix in which you operate. There is a truth within the shadow which cannot be separated from the truth which is of the great light of OM.

The time has come for the shadows to dissolve, and with them the fear that has been anchored in them from the consciousness of the greater humanity. Realize your part in this. Allow yourselves to untie this anchor from around your heart, allow it to rest in dissolution. It need not carry you with it, for you have greater things to attend to at this time, with fearlessness born of knowing that there is nothing to be afraid of any longer. What is invisible in your environment is a threat to your peace of mind and the wholeness of your body is part of a greater shadow, not of darkness but of a dimension subservient to the one which you strive to operate within. there is a necessary understanding to come to regarding this and we are very aware of the situation. It is not one that we have caused. It is one that we are witnessing and we see that people everywhere are demanding that things change and so they shall but know that it will not be without some chaos, for that is a function of transformation. Any of you who has watched a pot of water coming to a boil can understand this.

In the liberation of humanity from the understanding of what it has been accustomed to seeing itself as, into a greater realm of expression of self as embodiment of soul in greater communication with Source, we have been watching the distance shrinking between the time of your imprisonment within ignorance and sleep, as you have been awakening into a beautiful blossoming of joy despite everything that your eyes are witnessing. It is not to say you are without compassion for those who are suffering but you can see dear ones, can you not that the whole of humanity is shifting, the planet itself is readying for a shift from one phase of being to another, and every creature on it is participating in one way or another.

We of the League of Light wish to see the beauty of this transformation in its fullest expression and hope that each of you is able to resonate your state of awareness to melt the crystallization of fear that exists within this invisible matrix, to negate the effects of decay in the spirit of the hope of those who are linked to you through a network of human beingness. We are with each of you in a state of awareness and love. It is with great respect for all that you are and all that you have been, yes, and all that you are becoming that we address you now. This is what we have as our great pleasure and duty at this time, to be with you in this transformative state of time. I leave you now with these thoughts and the wish that you understand and can hear the whispers that we have been sharing with you all. May the hope of a brighter day spur you on to extend the light within you into the dissolving shadows of another person’s despair. There is none among you which we don not have a cognizance of. Such is the nature of being for you to yet discover in the transformation that awaits. For now, let this be and rest within your minds. I am Anica of the League of Light. I bid you peace, until next time we speak.

Fearlessness of the Demonic

anica vid1 bkg

This is the transcript of an audio channeling from Anica, which is part of a series of teachings from Nine through the League of Light. The series is called “Behind the Sun.” This is the first of that series. You can listen to or download the MP3 or watch a video version of this teaching.

Dear ones, this is Anica speaking with you today. I come from far away in time and space to meet with you now. Wherever we are, together in this moment, we are meeting.

In this moment, I have one thing to bring to your attention, as the days are grinding into a new form in which time will take less of a battering from the activity in your world and will become more of a conduit through which you will pass from chaos into a new world, one that is without the structures and limitations, the clouds and the darkness that have overshadowed with greater increasing presence on your psyche in the past lifetimes, as you have known it. Where are you going now, people of Earth? You are on your way already, and you have made decisions that have employed various methods of expression, physical, quite audible whispers from your soul into a night that seems empty but for some bit of an ear to hear you… your wishes. Know that you are heard, even in your silence. The vibrations from your heart, the emanations from your mind are heard and impact the matrix of reality in which you are encased. They impact a greater reality than the planet on which you live and act. And as you have been acting on behalf of the planet’s welfare, on behalf of the life of humanity, you have been giving your essence and your energies into building something new, as that which has existed has ceased to serve the greater part of humanity. And the lesser part of humanity which has reaped the cream from the top: it is time for there to be a change. It is inevitable, as surely as the stars shine, dear ones.

There is that which is steadfast, which you know in your hearts: the love from which you come, the vibration deep inside of you that connects you to each other, to the knowingness of what it is you must do as you act and speak and share your energies together. There is that which is more transient, that which is seemingly ephemeral, and in cosmic terms, dear ones, power-mongering is but a phase in the evolution of the soul of a people, and it inevitably leads to choices being made on the part of the power mongers. There’s a secret that they have not yet discovered, but which awaits them if they choose to evolve toward the direction of a greater understanding of universal harmonics, and the higher frequencies and reverberations, the resonances of the heart of what you may call the essence of OM. And that is a surrender to a greater light which shines within each one. Though it be cloaked and shrouded in darkness, yet there is a light that is shining within the most unlikely of forms.

If you cannot discern even the tiniest spark, know that there are eyes which can. Develop it in yourself to train your vision to see a reflection from a distant candle in the darker corners of the souls before you who wield the power to crush, to subvert, to annihilate the hope of so many who gather day by day into a greater understanding that peace is needed, and that with the passage of time, you will be seeding power from which there is only one choice, which is to serve those who would otherwise be crushed. In gathering to benefit the Earth, to benefit the greater humanity, you are flipping the switches, which power allows you to do. As you do, those in power will find the secret which you have been hiding in plain sight: Service, healing, support, being of benefit to those around you to whom you are related. Even if it’s not by blood, you are related by a common humanity.

Before you question whether or not there is a point to seeing something redeemable within the souls of a demonic, dark aspect of a human or humanoid form, see if you can access the truths that are without the tethers connecting them to personality and temporal placement within historical context. See if you can access the truth that emanates through everything, which is its essence of being without labels, definitions, past or future, That Which Exists. You have the right to understand. In the essence of truth which is within everything, which has a specific vibratory signature which is recognizable by a life form, you’ll find that everything around you and within you is quite divine. Are you willing to see that? Are you able to see that there is something divine even in the most demonic figure you can conjure up within your imagination? And can you look upon it without fear, recognizing within its twisted form its source in the desire to know, in the act of being which has come from the intelligence of self-reflection without limitation? What do you choose to call this? Is it God? Is it OM? Is it the Universal Consciousness? Is it incapable of mastering its own darkness, I ask you? If it is truly the source of divinity, understanding, intelligence, if it is consciousness — period, without limitation — then it is capable of creating that which is abhorrent to a mind in fear.

Step out of fear and see there is nothing but divinity. It is a seemingly complex issue, but paradoxes often appear this way.

In this moment of juxtaposing divine and demonic, are you in fear? And if you are, do you know that you can step out of it? Do you understand that you can break the circle that fear has carved around you, and in one breath find yourself in a completely different place in relation to what you understand? It is possible. When you do, know that you are taking a step closer to this source, which you may call God, or OM, or Universal Consciousness, Great Spirit… so many beautiful names for that which is nameless, limitless, and without definition, but which is wholly understandable and attainable within fearlessness. Approach the possibilities and I daresay you will find yourself closer to a love which will surpass all of your understanding as it is in this moment, and bring you closer to who you have forgotten yourself to be.

Dwell in remembrance.

It is with great love and respect that I have brought you this message today. I will be bringing more messages in the coming times. Know that we of the League of Light are with you and we love you without limitation. You are most beloved, dear ones, each of you. It is with these words that I say “I bid you peace until we speak again.”

This is Anica of the League of Light. I bid you peace.

Moving through Earth’s Transformation: Transcript

(For those who have wanted to read the full transcript of Anica’s video, “Moving through Earth’s Transformation”, here it is!)

We of the League of Light greet you, humans of Earth. I am Anica. I have spoken with many of you before, and I greet you with great joy and with love as one who is in service to you at this time.

You are seeing so much going around your world like a storm, breaking barriers and uprooting beliefs, blowing aside illusions and letting you see behind the scenes. What do you think of what you see? It is well to question and it is well to understand that what is happening now is what you have been waiting for. It is time for you to shine, dear ones; this is the thing that has been on your minds for millennia. What will you do when at last the great big thing you have built and allowed to be built around you comes crashing down?

It is the time of realizing that what has happened in your world is not going to last, that what has been your reality is now going to be your past. As you wake to this light of understanding, we say welcome to a new day, one that is of your own ability to create, and one that welcomes you as the one who will lead it into a blossoming of light to shine on what you create together, as a people.

We of this galactic conglomeration of beings… we call ourselves the League of Light… we have been waiting to see what you would make of this, knowing all the while that it would be a wonderful thing to behold. We have known of your innate understanding that you would be successful in your endeavors, ever hiding this fact from yourselves. Do you see it now, dear ones? Are you allowing yourselves a peek inside your hearts to see where you hid the key that unlocks the door that allows you to walk out of this reality into another?

We are waiting on the other side of that door for many of you, to greet you as friends and family. It is for you to find it, this key, and you don’t have to look far. You put it away, yourselves. You need not worry about your neighbor and how he will find his key. Your neighbor will find his key and you will find yours, as you attend to the impulses that your soul is giving you, and you allow the voices to cease in their incessant calls for you to pay attention to what they are saying at the expense of your own soul’s hoarse insistence that you notice it. Ah, it has been speaking to you. When you listen, you will find this key, because your soul remembers where it is, and your neighbor’s soul remembers where your neighbor put it, so there is no need to worry.

As each of you attends to the business of listening to your soul, each of you will be moving on a pathway that is set out for you alone. Yet, as you each move together, you arrive at a place where you planned to be, all along. As you look around and you greet your neighbors, and you meet aspects of yourself long forgotten, we will be there, for we are with you now, shimmering just beyond the ken of your ability to see, just beyond where you can interact with us. As it is, you’ve designed this yourselves.

As you step into remembering who you are, you will remember who we are.

Remembering requires forgetting, do you see? There are things that have been given to you – sometimes at your will and sometimes against it – that have been pushed into the place where you used to remember what was. These are false memories and illusions of manufacture from your cinema, from your storytelling, from your mythmaking. We say to you, dear ones, which do you prefer the flavor of: Hollywood, or the truth? The truth likes to hide, but it likes to reveal itself at precisely the right time for you to appreciate the full flavor of the feast it has for you, to open up and nourish you as fully aware humans.

Dear ones, this day is moving into such light. There is some drama to play out in front of you yet, and you will survive it, one way or another. There is no separation from what your soul is and eternity. There is no separation from your essence. Who you are is remembering.

As the remembrance comes into fullness of understanding, know that we are with you. We await your arrival in full remembrance, dear ones. We are of the League of Light. You are light embodiments, don’t ever forget that. Even the darkest among you has some spark.

We will speak again, dear ones. This is Anica of the League of Light. I bid you peace.

Taking Formation

handful of dust

Before you ask what the subject of this message will be, I would ask that you remain in a place within your mind of beginningness and openness. That will make what I am saying make more sense in these chaotic times of turmoil that your planet is in. You may think that everything is going along smoothly for everything and everyone in the grand scale, but the truth is, many of your neighbors are wondering how they will make ends meet, not only on their own needs but on the totality of getting to the next level of human development in a meaningful way. You need only look so far as the weather to see strangeness and unpredictability. It is a hint at the way things will be continuing for a while. I am not suggesting any kind of doom, dear ones, but I am saying that the time is now for getting your minds in synch in the general thought of big steps forward. The time for waiting for what’s next is coming to a close. It is followed by something quite new to your world, something that will help you put each other into greater focus. In a word, that thing is blazing in your minds already, and it is truth.

What you discovered some time ago about the secrets that had been kept away from you was like the bell on an alarm clock, signaling that it was time to stop dreaming and start opening your eyes to the reality around you. Unfortunately, the reality for many was not the thing that would have been welcomed, so it worked on them to either decide to change it or go back to sleep. It is now that the time has come to bring your consciousness forward in the understanding that things on the Earth will never instill peace of mind until the new idea of Earth sends its tethers into the being of this now. In a nutshell, you just have to ask about the ability of everything you understand to be real to still be meaningful in a new way, then let the line go. If you are able to find your footing when the world shifts, see what comes into view as leading you to new ground, and follow it to the future as it embraces the now. In this way you will find the path under your feet to be clear and safe to follow, while everything else is falling into fine dust. A pattern will emerge, and you can find your way if you allow your innate je ne sais quoi to become the new expression of I AM.

If you are wondering what exactly I’m referring to, it is simply the final state of That Which Has Been giving its fond farewell to the light of day, and bowing out as the curtain raises to reveal a new dawn arising. It is only the beginning that is coming into view now, but it is a promising sight to be hold, dear ones! You have not yet finished the external engagement with the shadow-masters, but the end is in sight, and you will soon find that the old world of what has been has simply slipped away. Like dust in your fingers, it nullifies structure and form, and we are ready to help with the final sweep of the terrestrial home, on your cue. I hope you have understood what I’m trying to say. The time is coming quickly that understanding is best incorporated into your general mind, so you don’t have to figure too much out in the scene change.

In the light of that bit of information, I bid you peace and remind you that we of the League of Light and other formations of interstellar conscious beings are on the horizon and ever becoming closer to the world of time which you inhabit. Remain upbeat, for the shift that the ancients foretold has not passed you by, not by a long shot. It is upon you now, and it is within your power to stay focused in the frequency of light best matched to your connection to soul. This is the line that will lead you home. Let go of everything else. Let your mind settle on the life-giving field emerging from the dust. We are here to experience a new day, and you are too. Let this be enough for now.

Beneath the Loss, Love Is Still Alive

go deep into consciousness

Beneath the tender life that wafts before your eyes is a stream of energy that is the substance of love. It is not for anyone to decipher the mysteries of life before understanding the nature of this stream of particulate light that carries intelligence within its waveform and oscillates within the range of perception by a human being in the nearness of material frequency phase shift. That is the nature of love, to be sensed before it is understood, but in the entrainment of the stream of love that underlies life is love brought into focus as some form that exists within the eternal numinous essence that each person understands themselves to be. Caught as the timebound race of humanity in perpetual sine-wave up and down of experience comprehended via emotional input and intellectual logic-making patterns, sensing a connection between the numinous essence of oneself and another form of love-sourced life is at best punctuated by lingering moments of doubt but never so brutally beheld as it is when the connection is unexpectedly, irrevocably (in terms of form) severed. You believe there is continuity of love, which is the only truth that withstands scrutiny in the laboratories of human experience, regardless of the school of thought to which you adhere. There is no true death other than the death of a patterning of form. Greet this, at least, as news worth hearing today.

The latest loss of form-based love is inevitably designed to destabilize the collective consciousness of the human race at a time when it is vulnerable to being preyed upon by thoughts of annihilation and environmental degradation. Thought takes form when it is not being allowed to be entombed with graceful release of fear and anxiety. The present moment is the time to be honest about the entire truth of a collective existence from which there is a light yearning to become hidden no more. In the darkness of grief, feel in the depths of the heart the holy connection each one has to the essence of love and know that there is no separation from it. The insanity of the day is yet to be understood. In the reflection of that, lean on each other and know we are with you in ways that have yet to be known but can be felt in the heart as solace and brotherhood, soul-hugging big breaths of peace, and bends of light that bring the brilliance of love into better focus as the days slink toward the lengthening of night. Soon the time will come for all to be understood and the understanding to be brought forward to all who have felt the stabbing pain of loss reverberate through their individual world, whether directly or as a resonator of the interwoven human being that is the people of Earth. There is no loss that is unfelt by all, and no comfort given that does not bring every aspect of the consciousness of humanity into deeper understanding of itself.

However, the day is one for grieving, and the time is one for realizing that the loss of one wisp of precious love-sourced life is felt for every heart that is torn from its breast, wherever, whenever, however it is staged. Know that the world grieves some loss with every breath you take, somewhere. Know that feeling the pang of devastating violence tearing apart the inner core of being is felt by your kin on the global level, that none escapes the touch of healing who seeks to understand and be comforted, that nowhere is life less lived than where it is allowed to go unconnected to the stream of love underneath its form. The damage has had its desired effect. Now it is for those who can to begin the work of cleaning up the mess.

Go into the next day of shadow knowing that the way out is ahead. There is no dark chasm to swallow up those who take the step forward, no intimidating monster waiting to get those who go into the middle of the night without fear. You have already known the taste of terror, of loss, and of insanity. You have had the bitter sip of innocence sold out, and have taken the initiation of the heart broken in grief. Grief is around the planet like a blanket, and nothing can tear the love of what is grieved from you if the love is still sensed. There is a sea of love beneath the grief. If you have felt its current, you have felt the reality of life unending. If you have been baptised in its light, you know the truth of life unending. It is from the depths of this love that your strength as a people is coming into being, and in the realization of this, the spectre of hate and the illusions it spawns, the beauty it seizes, and the stories it interrupts are powerless to consume further. Take the step forward, as one, knowing that the love that underlies the life that is in you is one, inescapable and unending. Tear the blinders away and see the inner truth unfold around you, as life continues and love begins a new chapter in the lives of humanity everywhere. Know that you are one people. Love lights your way.
