The Sound of Silence- Disturbed
Let us not forget that some of the loudest and most heart wrenching, soul quivering screams are released in Silence. Darkness has long been feared, but Darkness is sometimes our old friend. She visits us and reveals our shadow self, our deepest fears, our horrific grief, our sadness or depression and /or oppression. She makes known to us the devastating conditions of the hour in which we live.
Most of us have been socially conditioned to vacillate between two extremes: we do our best to hide our dis-ease and wear pretense as a cloak to make our pain invisible to the insentient beings that surrounds us or we act out when the least action triggers our internal conflict, often misplacing our wounded and infected emotions on some complete stranger or someone we feel safe enough to let it rip with.
If ever there is a time when it behooves us to walk in discernment of spirit and follow the Four Agreements, it is now. People by the masses are hurting, afraid, confused, conflicted, asleep and deceived. Those of us who are awake can offer our greatest gift to our world by being present. What I mean by that is to simply yet profoundly live our individual lives in a way that we are tuned in, tapped in and turned on to Spirit. We are love. It is not always necessary to 'do' something to assist others as "we walk each other home". Rather, being in the presence of Holy Spirit with constant and fervent prayer, praise, worship and intimacy in the temples of our own selves (body, soul and spirit) will liberate others.
Pay attention, use your sacred gift of intention and live in your bliss. Mother Teresa said, "Preach the gospel everywhere you go and when necessary use words." What did such a busy, selfless and loving, compassionate vessel of pure love mean by this? Her life was her message. She followed her call....that same personal call we all are given. It is on each one of us to deny it or we can depend upon our internal guidance and our conscience to realize God is inside us.
Turn the television off. Take time off from the internet and surf your inner net. Stay away from the tabloids. Stop depending on others to 'hear from heaven' for you. These are sources of many lies that condition minds and weaken spirits. We all have access to Truth and there is an abundance of goodness (Godness) bringing restitution to ALL creation. Don't just take my word for it. Seek, knock and ask. You will be encouraged to be living in such a time as this. You will also come to understand that if you don't feel like you really fit in here at our home on Earth, it is because you are here to help create the change that is so needed.
Love will conquer ALL.

*** *The Four Agreements, by don Miguel Ruiz are below. They are the basic principles, but if you google them, you can study them in greater detail.
1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.
