Soulself

Often on summer mornings I sit on the front porch swing, enjoying the quiet and a cup of freshly brewed coffee. But this morning there was something different as I was suddenly struck by how much simple pleasure I had in feeling the light, cool morning breeze on my face along with the aromas from the various plants around my house. I became acutely aware of the sounds of life: a baby crying in the distance, cicadas chirping loudly, young men and women on their morning runs, the swish of tires on the pavement as folks went about the business of the day.

Tears welled up into my eyes as I just sat swinging gently to and fro taking it all in and reveling in the small pleasure of the moment. I became aware, clearly for the first time in my life, that I was in the midst of Joy Itself. As I opened further to this new awareness, my Soulself began to speak quietly, the way She always speaks to me.

“Terry, this is what we have meant by the word, ‘Joy.’ For so long you have been thinking about and seeking the meaning. You thought Joy was a new car, a new lover, a trip to the mountains, a stroll along the beach, attending the next spiritual workshop, or some grand, exciting epiphany. Yes, it’s true these things are “enjoyable” but you know they last only for a time. These simple joys you are experiencing in this now moment are joys that last from each moment to the next.

It is so simple, this Joy. It has been with Us, you and me, forever. We have always been here with you, waiting for this moment when you could once more feel Us around you. You see, when you feel Us, you feel everything. Your awareness encompasses all of Life, just as in our past life experiences as First Peoples. You experience the Earth for She is Life. Life is not just what you call ‘natural’ things. Life is all, even the scent of automobile exhaust fumes that are carried to you on the wind currents.

To embrace life, is to simply embrace everything even those things you judge as bad or wrong or unnatural. Everything is natural regardless of what you think. So many times you looked for Us in other things and other places, but here We were—and here We are. YOU are the Joy you’ve been seeking. Joy that we speak of is the awareness of Now. This is the sweetness of Life. This is Joy.

And so, dear one, let me take your hand and walk with you into Now, into Joy of Being.”

I just sat there swinging, allowing myself to settle into this new and simple Truth. I remembered touching this Joy from time to time and how I dismissed it, thinking there had to be more to it. But there isn’t really. At least not for me. There is such peace and guiet in this Joy. Of course, my mind still wants to question and analyze. But here we are, my Soulself and I, holding hands and breathing Life together.

Greetings, Dear ones. We are the Council of Light and we love you dearly.

We are on this day wishing to bring you encouragement on your journey. You continue to create massive change, even when you feel a bit overwhelmed by the chaos that change generates. You have heard the discussions of the “collapse” of your various systems. We invite you to see these events in a new way. Instead of “collapse” we prefer the word, “transformation.”

In truth, nothing is collapsing. Your social, economic, political, and religious systems are undergoing massive transformation, just as you are. We have heard you speak of how your old ideas, beliefs, and identities are now “gone.” You think they have “collapsed.” Dear ones, it is transformation, not destruction. It is change, not death. We wish you to know that transformation is occurring on this side of the veil, also, thanks to you. And we do not thank you in sarcasm. We truly thank you for the transformational times for it allows us to expand and grow with you.

And so it is with great love and compassion that we remind you of your great work. It is appreciated more than you know. There is more to come with increasing speed, as you near 2012 and thereafter. The Mayan emissaries planted the seeds and held the energies with the ones you call Anasazi until it was no longer necessary—when you could take the mantle of Creator.

Transformation does not come easily to most humans. Even your American First Peoples could not welcome the massive transformations that came to their beloved lands of what you call North America. Even today, they still struggle with the letting go of the old ways. And so it is that the global transformations are shaking up and challenging Earth people in the same way. You know from first hand experience what it takes to let go of old ways and that gives you deep clarity as to what the rest of the world is now going through.

Around your world, many are leaving the planet through storms, floods, earthquakes, drought, famine which sounds like calamity. We assure you there is no calamity or collapse. Just transformation.

The tighter anyone tries to hold the old systems to keep them from transforming, the more difficult the experience. You know this from your own experiences.

You are witnessing the obvious transformation of your monetary and political systems, most recently demonstrated in your U.S Congress. Barak Obama did not come here to preserve the status quo. Many of you wanted him to help preserve and strengthen what you call liberalism. It is obvious that is not his purpose. His purpose it to ease the transformational process, not try to conserve the old ways. You cannot figure him out because he truly does not fit any of the old models. That can be frustrating for many of you and he is feared by many others who are trying desperately to hold together the old belief systems. These forces are clearly evident.

As you can see by your news that these forces are exerting whatever influence they have to prevent the transformations. These forces are on Earth in human form and still others work through humans who, consciously or unconsciously, allow them to. We do not wish to stir your fears. There is nothing to fear but we do intend to provide our perspective for you to discern for yourself what is true and what is not. You are safe and the information we provide is for your understanding for so many of you see the unfolding events and wonder why things are not changing more smoothly.

You may have heard the expression, “When Light hits, Dark gets tough.” There is some truth in that because Dark resists the Light, not from some evil intent, but from fear. Dark has performed its duties as repository of duality for so long, that it is reluctant to release its purposes. Dark is afraid of being consumed by Light, just as many of you fear being consumed by your own Soulselves. Like you, Dark fears that it will disappear into nothingness if it integrates and unifies with Light.

Transformation is not death. Transformation is integration of Dark and Light into a crystal clear Light of Unity. You see, Light itself is transformed when it integrates with Dark, for as long as they exist in duality, they, too, are not whole.

Allow yourself to acknowledge your own fear of your Soulself and your distrust of Her and then consider the events of your times. Humans, the creators, have a deep abiding fear of disappearing into nothingness and have created many religious beliefs out of a desire to create an eternal existence in the “afterlife.” We tell you now that you have tried to re-create that which you already are: an eternal and everlasting Soul. But because you have not yet fully remembered who you are, you continue to cerate or seek eternal life. You cannot create or find what is already. What Is, Is. The Isness of You is the Truth of You. You Are. It is our intent to assist you to awaken into the Unity of You. The integration of all parts of you, light, dark, and indifferent into the Unity with your Soulself is important for the continued expansion of all creation.

Practicing your breathing is the most gentle path to integration with All That You Are. Through the Breath, you gently release your fear of Self. You begin to realize that you cannot disappear into nothingness. Instead you become more clear as to your true identity as a creator-god-being..

We know many of you still fear your own Soulselves even as you practice your breathing. Even this one, Terry, has acknowledged that he has yet to take the one deep final breath into his own Soulself. (He gives us permission to use this example.) He has acknowledged his own fear and doubt, even as he continues to practice Breath. So many of you are in this same place of doubt and of who you are. On the one hand, you “believe” who you are and on the other, you cannot fully integrate into You for there is a large aspect of you who is fearful of losing totally its identity.

You identities are not who you are, but you have come to believe in them. Even as he writes, this writer is in doubt of our words, but wants so much to move beyond doubt and fear, that he allows us to speak to him—and to you, dear ones—to remind all of you that you are Divine and Eternal and you always were.

It is from your desire to release your amnesia that you call on us to remind you that you are our family, that you are much more than physical human identity. And so we continue to work with you, our family, to assist with your remembering. And you are remembering for your world would not itself be in the throes of transformation if you had not first chosen to awaken to All That You Are.

You are Divine Creators and just as you have undergone your own sometimes painful transformation, so, too, is the rest of your creation following in your footsteps.

And so we wish to reassure you that all is well and we encourage you to continue to breathe and, with ease and grace, remember who you are.

You are not disappearing. Rather, you are becoming MORE. You are, through your integration, expanding into the true You and into true Life. You are becoming whole.

We are the Council of Light and we love you, each one of you, so dearly and so completely.
