A time of Sheer Determination
Will and courage are aspects of the open heart, exposed within the openness and discipline of life's moments. Today is not a time of 'will or courage', 'openness or discipline' -- it's a time of 'sheer determination'. There's no compassion in 'sheer determination' . . . only achievement. And so we find ourselves living in a time of sheer determination with accomplishments and achievements . . . no compassion . . . no openness. This is a moment of evolution -- like a cancer's aggressive growth -- without regard for the life of the host -- our determination is producing accomplishments without regard for life. These are masking the purpose of life . . . people wandering toward achievement without wondering about consequences. This is evolutionary masks in place, hiding the pathway of life, all within the nature of balance, but we are currently out of balance, and must remove these masks -- remove these disguises entirely. And as these masks are coming off, we're viewing characters not exposed for centuries, on both the positive and the negative. Who are the characters of life . . . who are you? It's always the aggressors getting the running start in evolutionary situations . . . the mild, peaceful, more enlightened ones are caught smelling the roses. As this exposure takes place, things heat up . . . you are about to discover who you are. To be truly open and fully willing within your courage -- you must ingest this moment, before the moment arrives -- without knowing what the moment brings, but knowing that you know. Out from behind these times; out from behind these masks -- someone is emerging with the will and courage to dissolve the collective challenges. No matter how radical and awkward you feel -- your assignments in these moments are the keys for life to enter its next moments. Our prayer is that you take a pledge -- start today -- little by little advancing your radical nature with will and courage . . . accepting this beyond the awkwardness and fear; knowing this truly is . . . "What on Earth you are doing . . . for heaven's sake."
