“Why can’t they (the Congress) just work things out?

~students in the English class that my son teaches in Beijing, China

Today I talked to my son who is teaching English at a university in Beijing and he told me that his students have been puzzled about the way the U.S. government is (or isn’t) working right now.  Rather than comment on the Congressional process, I have been musing on its meaning for me.

My friend and mentor Nancy Joy Hefron has taught me to look for the mirror in outer circumstances rather than judging or pointing the finger in blame.  This doesn’t mean that we don’t care or take appropriate action.  We still need to use our discernment and see if we have something we need to do.  But looking for our own lesson is important, as well.

We are living in an amazing time.  Things are shifting and changing in miraculous ways.  For those with eyes open to see, opportunities are becoming available that we could scarcely have imagined even a few years ago.

What lessons can we take away from the government shutdown?  Hmmm.  Perhaps we each need to think about how we react to difficult circumstances.  Do we tend to dig in our heels and demand our own way or are we open-minded, flexible and willing to work things out, even with people we disagree with or don’t like?  Are we locked into a belief system that doesn’t allow for personal choice? When things don’t go our way, do we respond with anger or compassion?  Is it my way or the highway?  How can we be true to what we believe and yet open to dialog and a willingness to think about the needs of the whole?

As each of us clears out the clutter in our own closets, so to speak, we are creating the freedom to enter the New Age unencumbered with outdated habits, patterns and beliefs.  It can be hard work at times!  Yet the rewards are amazing and liberating.

Think about a place in your life where you face a challenge.  Let’s share the path to freedom through our choices!

Blessings, Mary

My darlings, beloved and dear to my heart,

Indeed the outer world is vividly showing you the things that remain to be cleansed and cleared within you, as well around you.  Over and over you can see how divisiveness and separateness lead to problems piled upon top of more problems.  Yet the door to oneness is always open.  All it takes is a loving attitude and a spirit of compassion.

Am I suggesting that you become a doormat and let people walk all over you?  Of course not!  It is important to be in touch with your inner wisdom and guidance.  You are called to be strong and stand up for what you believe in.  Challenges are opportunities to step into your power to change the world for the better.  But your choice is not just what you do but also in how you do it.

The door to the New is wide open.  A light is shining on the path that leads to love, peace, freedom and joy.  You can walk this path now, this very moment.  There are many distractions but the choice is yours.  Take my hand and the hands of other Way Showers.  Together we can walk along carefree and happy.  Others will see our joy and want to join us.

Don’t be dismayed or distressed by the turmoil in the world around you.  Quiet your mind and go to the peaceful center of your being where truth dwells.  Rest against the heart of the Goddess and stay as long as you want or need.  You will find solutions to every problem when you are calm and connected to your Divine Source.

Blessings and love to each of you.  I am Gaia, your Earth Mother, your friend
