The message for today is about wanting for others what you want for yourself. In this way can we truly be happy in what we receive in spiritual gifts and success in life endeavors, for if we desire these things for all, and work toward that end, can we accept the blessings of life, believing that one day, all shall partake and experience the joy of knowing the Creator and living as happy children who are paradise bound with the eternal assurances of life everlasting.
No longer shall you feel separate from the rest of humanity, yet should you feel constant compassion for those who still sleep under the illusion of materialism and blind logic. When you dream of a world in peace where all citizens know the Creator as their spiritual Father, pray for these lost ones that they would also see that day and awaken to the realities of sonship and eternal life in the universes. Pray for the enlightenment of all souls to know the joy of spiritual truths and values, the appreciation of beauty, and the goodness of sharing love with their brethren and the worship of their God.
It is not enough to be content in your spiritual bliss when so many are on the road to oblivion. Those who enjoy and appreciate their advanced standing should do more to enlighten their fellows, for more is expected of you. What can you students on the path do to help? There are infinite ways—use your gift of creativity to pour out your light on humanity. It is in the joy of giving and sharing that you find satisfaction and accomplishment in life. All can do something to make a better world and to make the day a little brighter than it was before.
Bringing light to this world also means you, as torch bearers, should continue to progress and learn as much as you can so that you can be more effective teachers to those who are just starting out on their journey for truth and light. The more skillful and experienced the teacher, the greater the example and the more valuable he or she is to the student. A false teacher can do much damage and lead many astray where they may never find their way. Be true, be authentic, be courageous in all your ways as you teach and point the way, and most importantly, know the way yourself before showing others the path.
Raising your own spiritual IQ will also raise the collective consciousness of humanity. Go therefore into the stillness and seek council with the Indwelling Spirit—sit at the feet of deity and receive that portion of light that may be shared with all. Do this with not only the intention for your own spiritual growth, but that what you receive can be multiplied by sharing with the world.
Peace to you, The Circle of Seven
