Often times messages come to us in many shapes and sizes, but the most exhilarating are the direct messages that enter into our quiet place. Whether angels exist or not, spirit guides among us, or the Lord speaks directly into our ear, we cannot excuse the direct messages that we receive.
A little reflection will show us that every belief, even the simplest and most fundamental, goes beyond experience when regarded as a guide to our actions.
~William Kingdon Clifford
When we are down, a friend may appear or a mailing of good news may arrive miraculously at our doorstep. As long as we ask for assistance…help will always arrive when it is needed most. The trouble is we cannot always understand the messages when they arrive. Many of the ancient teachings have spoken of the next steps…we must enter our quiet room and contemplate our current status.
The quiet room is not a physical place, but a spiritual place that resides in each and every one of us. It is a place where all the answers are kept. There are teachings that refer to this place as the Akashic Records. The Akashic Place is at the level of all souls and all records are kept. If one practices quietude, they can gain easy access to their answers and the answers of the Universe.
Ironically, as I write this (I say Ironically lightly, as I do not believe in ironies or coincidence…only syncronicity), a friend calls me with a persistent message of reaching out to another. Direct message or mere coincidence? Regardless of validity or the meaning of the call, I must listen to my advice and call this person. Whether it has meaning or turns out to be a dead-end, one will not know without first taking the step. What would it hurt to call this person? Nothing…we shall see where it goes.
As we look out into another day, we can choose to stay in misery or look beyond our own misery, focusing on what we already know…we are meant to be happy and free. How does one get there? Look beyond the shortcomings and expect greater things to come our way. If one is currently lying in the shadows of darkness, then allowing it too pass, the Light will surely shine once again. Don’t give up, don’t just sit there…get up, take a step and trust that all will be good once again.
Stepping into the Canvas as if you already know. Realizing that we know very little, we begin to see everything we need to know. In our quietude, we hear the mighty roar within. In our darkness, we receive Light. With each step, easy or not, see the lessons before us…see the beauty that flows through the Canvas of Life.
Love, Light and Life…Metatron
