The song goes "You are not alone, I'm always here with you and we'll get lost together until the light comes pouring through, and when you feel like you're done and the darkness as won, Baby, you're not lost. It's when you feel like you're done and the darkness has won, Baby, you're not lost". I love songs, I love this one. I'm in the middle of a Buble moment and you know what I need it.
The questions are everywhere from everyone. What do we do?, where do we go?, will the City rebuild?, where will the jobs be? Is there another shake coming? Will there be sewer everywhere? Will we be safe? Will our families be okay?. Hmm all of the questions have merit, all of them have value. Last night at 3am I spoke with the Guides. "I worry about people.... I worry they will not be okay. I worry about their strength, their minds, their hearts." Theodore stepped forward (he was vaguely insulted when I said he looked like the "Architect" out of the Matrix movie). He moved beside me, leaned in closely and said.
"You are on a journey, a very important one, everyone is. There is hardship, there is learning, there is value, there is pain, loss, sorrow and heartache. To balance this, there is joy, wonder, awe and love. There is a cycle of balance perpetually to life. People will say, this is not fair, this is not what I asked for. But within each learning, each growth, each change, there is value. There is balance, there is learning. When you agreed to come here on the earth plane, each and every one of you knew before this time, what you had signed up for, what you needed for your personal growth, and the souls who loved you and worked with you, agreed to come on this journey with you. To learn, to grow, to love and experience. There is no coincidences in this life, it is a truly valuable journey. A journey of people, and of souls. For all of the experiences you prepared for to come here, the one thing, the most important thing that was given, was placed in your heart. The safest place of your body, to be cherished, to reside here inside the physical to give you what you needed for every single experience here on the earth plane".
I look at him, his blue eyes smile with wisdom and understanding, his face, so kind, grandfatherly and affectionate, white beard, white hair. This beautiful Guide and I KNOW what is coming, I know what he is to say. I reach out and touch his face. " I am blessed to have you working with me" I said. "Let's learn together" he says. I laugh, "I think I have more learning than you". He smiles and his eyes twinkle, "We shall see". For you, I'll tell you what he said....
"Within your heart is strength, you have been given as much strength in your heart, as much love as you can hold, to enable you to move forward with any experience that comes into your life. You will not see how you can ever go on in some situations, you will not see you can survive what has changed in your life. BUT you will, as time passes, the heart doesnt forget, but it does heal. The love and strength of your heart is much, much more than your mind, more than you can imagine. So you see your strength is hidden, your secret, wonderful strength, is concealed in your heart for the time that you need it the most. People will move, people will change, people will adapt, but at the end of the day it will be their strength of heart that enables them to go on".
I question "for those who cannot stay?" He touches my hand, "Understand for those who cannot stay, they have completed what their journey was about. Their hearts are full in the knowledge they have completed the journey, you know this". I do know this and because I work with amazing spirit people every day. I know this is the culmination of the journey.
Celine Dion had it right.....
Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on
