Selacia Council of 12 Wesak Message for May 2007: Part I - Living Your Mission of Light
There is a stirring within humanity. An awakening is occurring across the planet, and even the Earth is in the midst of an initiation into a higher consciousness. On some days, you likely feel the shifting of energy at very deep cellular levels. As part of that, you may notice a subtle remembering that there are more pieces to the puzzle of existence. When you get in touch with this, you may begin to question your teachers, politicians, religious leaders, and other authority figures. Chances are, you have more frequent questions about who you are, what you are really doing here, and what your role is on your path of light. You likely have heard that you have a mission or purpose for being here, and you naturally want to know more about it. Questions, therefore, tend to percolate from within your consciousness, sometimes in words you can recognize and other times in a more subtle way that leaves you simply feeling unsettled. As you grapple with the answers to these questions, you may feel a sense of even more unrest. And sometimes it may appear as though there really aren't any answers. The flip side of this is when you receive information about something you are to do, and then you are puzzled when opportunities to do that thing fail to materialize.
Right now, as you read these words, it is more important than ever that you continue questioning. Ask the deeper questions even when you think you are receiving no response. Ask them even when it appears that you have hit a brick wall, and when apparent delays cause you to go into cycles of fear and doubt. Continue your questions, remembering that an inquiring mind is one of the qualities necessary for your enlightenment.
Others around you may seem to be asleep, but don't allow their forgetfulness to delay your own awakening. The Buddha and other great enlightened Masters did not stop their inquiry simply because others around them weren't yet ready. They asked what others weren’t asking, and they kept asking even when others accepted the status quo.
Consider What Will Matter in 300 Years
Many of the other people you live with or work with likely have different types of questions about life. Chances are, they are more interested in the how's and why's of mundane happenstance than they are in the deeper meanings of being. What they think is important, if they were to manifest it, might not matter in 300 years. Their soul, perhaps reincarnated in another human body at that future time, would not care about the job promotion, the cash in the bank, or the 10-month love affair the man or woman obsessed about in the early 21st Century.
To be sure, the more awake you become, you will naturally ask questions about your key relationships, jobs, and other opportunities. The questions now, however, will be framed quite differently than those you may have had earlier on your spiritual journey.
Questions When in Relationships
When you are in a relationship, for example, you will want to know what you are learning by knowing this person and what this teaches you about yourself. Before, you may have simply wanted to know what you could do to cause this person to treat you more favorably. Not realizing it, you were trying to force or manipulate the other person or to artificially change yourself to fit a mold that has nothing to do with your authentic self. You may have asked whether you should eliminate the person from your life, not considering whether you had completed the learning offered by the relationship. You now are willing to look more deeply than before, acknowledging your role in the dance of the relationship. You want to understand, and put to use, the gifts of knowing this person. The more that you do that, the easier that it will be to take actions that fuel your growth and when appropriate, to release the person from your life.
Questions about Your Job
Regardless of what kind of job you have, you will want to inquire about how your work can be more in alignment with your highest good. Keep in mind that your highest good may not equate with the highest paycheck or praises. And it certainly may not look the same as some other person's highest good would look. Each has their own unique path. The more that you awaken, the more that you do things in the world because an intuitive voice inside of you says they are appropriate. Think of your job or work in terms of your service to others. Think of it in connection with what you are learning about yourself. The work doesn't have to involve a paycheck to be of value. Some, or even all of your work if you are retired, will be comprised of things you do simply because it feels right to do them. You do these things, not because others pay you but because your heart guides you to act. It will be important to know if you are fully utilizing your gifts and your potential of service as you carry out your work. If not, you then question what you can do or avoid doing to change the situation.
Questions about What Matters
Perhaps you dislike your job, or feel unfulfilled by a key relationship. You may question why you exert such effort, why you remain in a job you despise, when your "real work" will arrive, or why the thorn-in-your-side person won't give you what you want. These are all questions of a surface nature and won't get you deep enough to change things. In fact, the lack of real solutions available from this sort of inquiry is likely to make you feel even worse. When this feeling gets triggered within you, there can be a tendency to falsely believe you aren't enough or that you don't have the resources to affect true transformation. You can feel at the mercy of your situation, setting off old familiar patterns of victimhood. Your fear can lead you into a downward spiral of waiting for some outside source to come to the rescue. In the moments you buy into the fear, you convince yourself that you need more of "something" before you can shine your light and live your purpose. Perhaps you even feel abandoned by the God or Divine Creative Force you believe will answer your prayers. Sound familiar?
The following are a few guidelines for approaching your spiritual path in ways that are more sane, more honoring of who you truly are, and more heart-centered.
