As Fear and Desperation Grow, So is Love Growing - The Grandmothers

As Fear and Desperation Grow, So is Love Growing - The Grandmothers

Let your hearts open,"the Grandmothers said.  "We understand that to see the suffering in the world, in the Americas, in the Middle East, in Africa, in so many places," they said, shaking their heads,"is painful.  And to see the hardened hearts of those you call 'the haves'..."  they laughed ruefully, "those people are most pitiable of all.  In their hearts they have nothing and though they clutch at everything, they end up grasping at emptiness.

"So," they said, gazing at me, "take the challenge and let your hearts open.  Feel what you feel.  Let compassion well up in you and then serve wherever you can.  Serve with your hands, your voice, and with your listening.  Such service will bring you joy.

"Cast the Net of Light," the Grandmothers said.  "Hold it and let yourself be held by it.  Pray for all creatures affected by the catastrophes taking place all over the world and hold them in the Net.  That is your job.  The holding, holding, holding of the light.

"You have been conditioned by the energy of yang to expect things to happen fast," they said, "but the shift of energy you will create when you hold like this will endure a long time, do lasting good.  By your decision to 'hold,' you will lift the heavy conditions on Earth.  You will lift Earth itself.

"It is the steadiness, the on-going connection to the Net of Light that lifts and elevates.  Don't lose heart," the Grandmothers said, shaking their heads.  "When you catch yourself wanting things to happen quickly and are disappointed when they don't, stop and take pity on yourself.  You have been conditioned by the dominant energy of yang to behave in this way.  That's all it is.  Don't blame yourself for the rushing about you sometimes get caught in," they laughed.  "You have been conditioned to live that way ...

"You are needed to do this steady work and you are needed day in and day out,they said.  "To do this, you need the stamina the Net of Light gives, and as you develop this stamina, you will become stronger and able to do more.  Living from this steady place inside yourself will give you greater and greater joy."
