Continued from Part 3
As the influence of spirit continues to pick up here on earth, what kind of teachings will we be given? In what ways will we change the current manner in which we function? In a beautiful quote, Silver Birch provides an answer to these questions.
“As our teaching grows in your world, it will mean the end of all separateness between people. It will mean the end of national barriers.
It will mean the end of race distinctions, class distinctions, colour distinctions and all the distinctions between churches and chapels, temples, mosques and synagogues, for gradually all will learn that they have a part of the Great Spirit’s truth and that the part enshrined in the heart of every other religion in no way contradicts that portion which is precious to them.” (1)
Every religion offers a glimpse of Source, and in time, petty wars that are caused by religious differences will give way to tolerance and acceptance of the uniqueness of each belief system and the similarities between them.
Spirit’s continual influence on humanity will lighten us up and instill the teachings of Source back into us. The qualities of the heavenly state of consciousness we’re growing into will be understood and acted on much more than they are now, and the desire to come together and run the planet fairly and justly will trump division, hatred and warfare.
Everything that feeds the lower vibrations will be seen through a new, conscious lens by all of humanity, and we’ll reevaluate who we’ve given our trust to in regards to running the planet.
We’re also told that divine order will be bred out of the confusion and chaos we currently experience.
“So, out of the apparent confusion, the divine pattern will take its shape and harmony and peace will come. I tell you these things, so that you can understand part of the great Plan, the part that we who return from the world of spirit play in it, and the part that each one of you must play in it before your earthly course is run.” (1)
Everybody has a sacred role to play, and we’re being called to accept the tasks before us as we reconnect with our guides and gradually anchor a higher vibration onto the planet. If it isn’t clear by now, the forces beyond the veil play a big role in bringing the divine plan about, and they look to us on the earth to play our parts too.
Our guides look to us to do as much as we can while we’re here for the benefit of the planet, and we can accept this responsibility and get to work on projects and creative endeavors that inspire us. What do you feel inspired to do for the planetary evolution today?
We’re each fulfilling the divine plan, and even though we’re given a lot of assistance from beyond the veil, it’s up to us to put the tools we’re being given to use. It’s up to us to prove we can handle the task of awakening this lost planet, and we can use the things we have available to help others become aware. This is our destiny, and it feels good to accept and work toward.
Frances Banks tells us about the appreciation of the divine we gain when we glimpse the divine plan.
“How can we learn to understand, not only people, but more of the great Plan and Pattern for each of us and for humanity?
As I am allowed to witness and to assist those souls who gather here for a space, I gain knowledge and a very partial understanding of that Plan and this brings a deep humility, together with a reverence for the wonder and marvel of the Divine Creative Thought.” (2)
Opening up to Source’s plan for the evolution of its creation must be an indescribably awesome experience, and I’d imagine that understanding it in a purer way, even for a moment, would help us quite a bit on our respective quests to bring it about.
Arthur Ford tells us that everything we experience is pre-planned and that we don’t need to try so hard to avoid stressful situations.
“For things are planned ahead – make no mistake. If earthlings realized how much of it is planned ahead, they would not struggle so strongly to avert certain catastrophes, as they view them, because why worry so much when it’s all laid out in front of you anyway?” (3)
When we get a glimpse of just how coordinated our lives are, we’ll set aside the perceived need to worry or stress about things that we know are taken care of by our higher selves and guides, and we’ll be able to greet everything we face with an understanding of the intricately planned nature of our existence.
There’s no need for us to worry about things that don’t matter in the bigger picture, and the mind thrives when we let it loose by stressing about things of finite unimportance. Vanity isn’t the way to true happiness, and following the woes of the mind will only keep us from the greater feelings and perceptions beyond.
Arthur continues, “Just accept [it] as it comes, remembering always to do the very best that you can to lead productive, helpful lives, and let the future come to you unfeared; for whether it’s part of the divine plan for you or your own mission which you agreed to accomplish when you returned to your physical form, it’s there.
So what is fear? Simply lack of faith in the plan. Be relaxed, available, willing to take what comes and do the best that you can.” (3)
Personally, this quote means a lot to me. Fear is caused from a lack of faith, in ourselves and the divine, and if we lose faith in the divine plan or the spirituality of our existence, stress and fear naturally come through to fill the gap.
Like Bill Hicks said, it only takes a choice between fear and love. Let’s accept and embrace everything that comes our way with the knowledge that we’re never given more than we can handle and that spirit is eternally with us, because we have a lot of revolutionary things to do.
Phillip Gilbert tells us how worthwhile perceiving and working for the divine plan is.
“I can now glimpse the Plan of Creation and its functioning. My tiny brain can’t grasp the whole, but I can perceive dimly the panorama and it is so worthwhile to be in it, part of it, doing one’s job for it.” (4)
Even though I haven’t gotten nearly as much of a glimpse as he probably has, I have to agree with Phillip. Working toward humanity’s evolution and knowing one’s been able to do everything they could for the divine plan feels great to say the least, and I look forward to seeing a motivated humanity change the planet.
I’d love to see the rest of the world feel half of the motivation I and plenty of other seekers feel on any given day. Can you imagine how much a conscious, motivated populace would get done in a year alone?
