…It’s all about timing. I don’t want to hide things from you, but I must finish telling you about the transition times before it will fit. And besides, I thought you were not going to believe this story anyway. I will tell you this: I am seeing that you and I will be work-ing together on this project in a way I had not anticipated. For now, let me return to my account of the beginning of my species.
Shortly after your time, people found themselves no longer operating out of pure self-interest. The norms of society were chang-ing rapidly. You found increasing sensitivity to others’ feelings. People began to help each other more. This was not indiscriminate do-gooding; it was deliberately guided from the heart, joined with the mind, merged with the appreciative awareness. It is budhi, manas and atma at work again.
Not only had society at large suddenly become non-aggressive, it had become simultaneously much more intelligent and fearless; there were no longer walls of defensiveness and fixed opinion! The absence of fear opened us to new approaches and fresh ideas. The leaders who emerged were profoundly connected to the deep psy-chological needs of the groups they were serving.
Each individual vigilan or human being has a calling, a destiny. Look around you now at the true leaders in your human world to-day. You can tell who they are, and are not. There are many impos-ters. It is all about destiny. There were many who desired to be leaders, but who were not; they were mistaken as to their own des-tiny. Sadly, their desire was taken over by ego. These so-called lead-ers captured control of the populace through inauthentic means; they led themselves and everyone else astray. Of course, this turned out to be beneficial in the end—confronting inauthenticity hastened the awakening.
In contrast to the false leaders, the true leader balances the pre-rogatives of the individual with those of society. She or he repre-sents the Source energy, the beneficence of universal integrity. Look alertly for these ones, and give them your commitment, your blessings, your appreciation. They are few in number, in my time as in yours. This has a reason: Leaders are vectors around which many diverse followers must gather and move together. If there were too many leader types there would be too many different directions to follow at any given time.
“Well, I see many different directions in the world to-day—many religions, political systems, philosophies. Are there too many?”
Yes, relative to the needs of the people. There was much re-dundancy in human systems. The awakening is a revelation into the simplicity of the life force, of Conscious Evolution. All is simple, as I mentioned when we started these letters. The mind is a wonderful aid to exploration. But it does not possess the capacity to truly synthesize what it analyzes. It makes things much more complicated than they really are.
In reality many teachers in your time are saying the same things, only with different words and different cultural overtones. Some redundancy is not a bad thing. That there are many avenues to truth is wonderful. It is always important though to realize that they do in fact lead to the same point. They are all empowered from the same Source.
As the new consciousness unfolded, thinking began to simplify and slow down. We began to take time to ponder and reflect. We found that we did not need thinking nearly as much as we thought. Our new sensitivities allowed us to replace thinking with feeling into space, as we say. Whenever we have a question, we go first into that space, for clarity and inspiration. Once we enter that, we are able to engage the mind more efficiently and then set things into action. During the transition, all this was happening spontaneously within each a person. However, our leaders and helpers were endowed with the greatest measures of this clarity. They demonstrated the path, through their example, and the people knew when it is right…
