This thread is taking an interesting turn :) Here are a few thoughts~
Regarding Attachment. I have travelled with a monk revered as a “Walking Buddha” www.cealo.net
and have learned a great deal from him. We even wrote music together to raise money for the street children of Cambodia. ("Direct Action" :) He does not have many "teachings" except to Wake Up, Find your True Self and Follow Your Heart in All Things. Cealo always has always said not to be “attached” and it is one of the harder lessons for most people to grasp. As I wait for my Father’s passing and face the challenges associated with helping my mother afterwards, I am curiously detached. My concerns are somewhat worldly, in that I hope for an ease of transition etc.. but I am curiously not “attached” to how this all unfolds. I hope the market doesn't crash so we can keep her in Assisted Living, but again, it will be what it will be and we will do what needs to be done when the time comes. Again, curiously and shockingly not-attached. Well, mostly :)
It is beyond my control, except to be aware and as helpful as I can be in each moment.
I am attached to my musical finally making it to Broadway and Film, not out of ego, but because of a deep sense that this is a great part of the mission in which I came/ was sent here. I suppose I am “attached” to not suffering through the turmoil just ahead, because, as a First Waver/ Wanderer/ Volunteer in this 3D Gaia Realm, I am just not used to how things come down around here. It is a violent mix in what was meant to be so beautiful and lovely, and I weep at what I see here, as much as I .rejoice in the beauty and hope that does somehow sprout forth.... It’s been a hard journey in my almost 54 years in this body, and I’m looking forward to the transformation that I was promised (witnessed) before I spiraled down here. I know it will turn out all right in the end.
And speaking of spiraling down - I was told ages ago, when I was just waking up - that I spiraled down here from the higher dimensions - stepped down and spiraled in - through Arcturus and Sirius. Came here on someone else’s passport and as such, I have had several what you might call “Walk-In” “Soul-Merge” “Adding Unto” experiences while in this body. Hard to explain. Whatever :)
Guides. I love my guides. My Angels~ I am Order of Michael. It's a Merry and Powerful band, make no mistake. Wouldn’t have come here without ‘em - Nope, no way. I trust that when the time comes for me to return “home” - or, as I suspect, journey further onward into this New Creation that is even now unfolding, that my trusty companions will help see me through, as they have always done. And my pets, who are slivers of MUCH greater consciousnesses (Their own I AM Presence) than they appear in their fur bodies, will be with me as well.
I am a Dreamer... a Believer in all things Good and Right... in the Tarot, I would be The Fool :)
Just because I do not remember everything that I AM, does not mean that I am not Aware, Merc :)
Or that I don’t trust that I will make the right choice when I’m passing through this veil... I’m just hoping that someone who remembers different things than I remember in this moment might help me to direct my Dad to where he must go, as this conversation is beyound him in many ways.
Then again, who am I to know? It will be, ultimately, between him and his own Higher Awareness, which, when he passes, will undoubtedly not be clouded by the illusion that we find ourselves in here and now~ and I trust that the right and perfect choice for him will be made at that time :) Not really Attached :)
Thank you again, Nikolai and Ummo~ I feel your energies more and more strongly these days, and to quote a favorite old Episcopal phrase.. a “peace which passes understanding...”
