Do not fret dear ones, as you have not been forgotten. We are well aware that for many of you, the time is passing excruciatingly slow, and you cannot face the thought of another day in this seemingly purgatorial condition. Rest assured that all is well, and even if you fell less than well by now, we are here to help you get through every up and down on this path. For even if it might not seem like it at the moment, there will be more ups than down in the time ahead, and we think you will all find more than one reason to hang in there, as they say. Not to be flippant about this, but you are in fact well seasoned travellers by now, and as such we think you deep down know that even if at a superficial level much seems devoid of meaning at the moment, we also know that if you go deep inside your own core, you will find the strength and certainty you feel to be lacking in all of your every day experiences. In other words, we do not take your complaints to be unwarranted or unneccessary, but we would just like to remind you all of your true strength. It is there, ready to be tapped into, and when you do, you will find all of these aches, pains, discomforts and uncertainties to diminish considerably. They will not go away, but they will cease to be as noticeable as they mayhaps seem today.
So even if this might seem to be an uncalled-for advice at the moment, we urge you all not to give yourselves away to the cries from the less important parts of your being. You are so much more than the aches and pains in your physical body, or the insistent voice of worry gnawing in your mind. You are as solid as a rock, and as strong as the Universe, and we think you will all find a way to re-discover that for yourself in the next few days. And please, do not take this as any criticism. It is not, it is merely a reminder that you are made by far more solid stuff than what your seemingly frail physical body and your somewhat timid mind try to convince you. Your spirit is already soaring, but your human parts, to call them that, are desperately trying to pull you back down again, and as such, this insistence on suffering and distress can be difficult to ignore. But you must try to listen past all of these blabbering voices of discontent, as they are only trying to hold you back from re-connecting with the real you. And yes, we do understand that this is a very, very difficult part of it all, because all of this discomfort and unease takes up a lot of space in your daily life. But still, it bears repeating that whenever you manage to go beyond this wall of disgruntlement, you will find the peace and ease you so hanker for. And then, you will be lifted closer to the level of the real you, where you strength becomes more apparent than your human weaknesses, and you will find the patience to persevere once again.
So please, listen well, and you will hear all of these voices for what they really are, just the signals of distress from every particle in your human body voicing out their fear of becoming extinct as you continue on your journey towards attaining your freedom from the old shackles of mortality and restriction. You are in fact limitless, and as such, you are breaking through all of these old barriers, but as you have already noticed, not without raising a formidable choir of resistance and reluctance. So do not let these lesser parts of you hold you back from attaining the glorius freedom you have in store, literally just around the corner, and do not let the voices of discontent convince you that this end goal is just a fiction. For if it was, you would not be hearing them at all. Then they would have been silenced a long time ago, in fact, they would never even have raised their voice in the first place. Because then, they would know that there would be no need to fear your determination to flee the old prison you have been held captive in for so long, the prison they cling so desperately to. Because the old limitations will be made null and void the moment you take that first step outside these old boundaries, so no wonder they make all of this ruckus in order to confuse you and make you turn back again.
So give yourselves all of the credit you deserve, dear ones! All of this noise is just a distraction, and the increased volume is only a sure signal that you are approaching that final doorstep. There is no turning back now, and the whole of you know this oh so well, but that will not silence this inner choir of fear and distress. So remember, the louder they scream, the closer you are to gaining your freedom from these limitations. You are the strong one, even if you feel almost beaten down and broken, so we implore you not to give in to these tiny parts of you still insisting on turning back and giving in. You deserve so much more than what these small particles of fear want for you. You deserve to become one again, one with your spirit, one with All of creation, so do not be stopped in your tracks by these annoying little speed bumps trying to set you off course. For the future is ever so much brighter than what these voices try to tell you. So keep breathing, and keep going, and know that you are not falling short in any way, even if you feel despair seeping in from all directions. You are moving forward with every breath you take, and this choir of discontent growing ever louder is just confirming this every time they send you another message of doom and gloom.
