“People expect all those who are your guides and teachers to come in forms that are soft and sweet. I am neither, and I am stern and serious, because you are in danger of forgetting that which has been taught to you due to distraction. I ask of you now whether you have the commitment to carry through with the tasks you have decided you wish to complete. Because the words ‘Yes’ and ‘I will’ are simple. But to teach is to impart priceless wisdom and for others to ignore the lessons, simply means this entire planet is being held back.”
“Forgive me, for I become impatient at the pains you have put yourself through and I see that again there is the possibility of going over old ground. You must understand – you have already learned so much. What we wish for you to do now is to have the courage to live from the wisdom you’ve gained, rather than the fear which ensures you overlook all that which you have learned. I have been with you before, and you and I have already learned a great deal together. And let me say this: if you choose to behave as though you are deaf and blind, and have no senses, you will again feel pain that is simply not necessary!“
“So now, choose to follow guidance and learn the lessons you have already worked with…and when you have learned it for the last time, teach it yourself. By demonstrating the qualities you wish to see in the world, by applying action and discipline to your dreams, I will also be relieved, because I will no longer have to bring the lesson to your attention again and again, time after time.”
“And my patience will no longer be tested! Together we can teach the new ones -they need you to live from your wisdom more than you think. Know too, that no matter how much you feel you have already learned, and how wise you may believe you already are, that you still have a great deal more to learn. In this new school you will be entering, you will be an apprentice once again, surrounded by others who are just as eager, wide-eyed and sure of themselves, too, at times!”
ABOUT THE ELDER
“She is wise and ancient, and seems very stern – and she is, because she has a serious task. But what one does not often see is the laughter in her eyes, the warmth of her voice and the strength of her endurance, for she has taught thousands and will teach many more. Her home is the natural world and her lessons are the themes of your life. Ignoring her wisdom she has given is like polluting the fresh water of a spring, or poisoning your own food. Do not compromise your life. Trust the stern and wise teachers of your life, for they know how precious you are. Know that their harsh words at times contain so much truth: so look beyond what seems to be unfair and seek the wisdom in what you have been taught. Think of the Master of Martial Arts and the rigours the young apprentice must go through in order to learn. This master is your current, most gifted guide.”
MESSAGE FOR YOU
“Studying seriously, working towards a goal, feeling like abandoning a task before it is complete, being disrespectful, feeling threatened by another approach to learning; wanting to leave ‘school’ before it is time; having authority issues.”
WORKING WITH THE ELDER
“Take your studies very seriously and pay attention to the messages. Take any ‘Why are they picking on me?’ moments to mean that in fact you are not clearly acting on your true path, and be practical about all steps. So, if you wish to write, do so. Listen to your muse and be creative. Do not simply seek to obtain what is needed externally – create it from within and send it out into the world through your efforts and discipline. Be proactive and do not rely on the powers that be. Rely on yourself and counsel. Heed teachings and have integrity. Treat elders with respect and do not forsake ‘old’ energies and wisdom for this season’s latest trend. Within your family, an elder has something to say to you. Listen to them, even if they do seem a little fearsome!
