The Dove of Peace ~Mathilda Harrison
This morning I awoke to a unique experience. Donald Trump was foremost in my consciousness. Hillary Clinton followed. As someone with little political interest I was some what surprised except that the election this year is a very big issue based on the natures of the political candidates. The collective conscious is brimming with ‘concerns’ that apparently spill over into everyone’s awareness wanted or not. It occurred to me then that the issues being presented to us as failings on both sides, Democratic and Republican, challenge qualities many consider intrinsic to honorable relationship. No wonder we are so distraught.
Many of us want honorable relationship as a way of being. We work on that diligently in our personal relationships, with family, friends and in business. This year has been a demanding year: 2016 = 9 the number of high attainment, of human evolution. We have determinedly faced our demons this year with even more tenacity and are successfully letting go of some old and feisty patterns and preparing for 2017 = 1 and new beginnings, new light, more light!
We are expecting this country to face its demons and do the same—love them into peace or at least realize what ‘good habits’ offer opportunities for peace. Both candidates bring up issues of honesty and sexuality. Honesty begets trust and sexual harmony relates to compassion, respect and caring. If neither candidate is trustworthy and if compassion and caring are not part of their prime directive are either candidate worthy of leading this country? Of representing the United States globally? Can the United States ever live up to its role as the ‘Dove of Peace’?
As the United States is not encumbered with the same deep roots that other countries have, we are freer to bypass limitations based upon some very old beliefs, political, social, economic and religious. As this country’s beliefs are second, third, fourth or fifth growth they are much more easily pruned. When the tree is pruned the light filters through. This country is in the initial stages of horticultural assessment. First proclamation: the tree needs to be pruned for the highest good!
This country has an abundance of energy that is used both for destructive purposes and constructive purposes. At this time we are witnessing an escalation of the absurd, what we apparently do not want (some of us) en route to the coveted place of peace, compassion and understanding. At this time the light grows and awareness spills over and into the collective conscious with speed. Issues such as the election unfolding in front of us escalate this occurrence. We are face to face with the dis-ease that binds this country to an unhealthy existence. How else to experience that so deliberately if not through the two people we select as our voice? Of the millions of inhabitants in this country, these two are up for election.
What qualities is it that we wish to experience here in this great country? And how might we step forward and make our wishes known? How might we turn the tide of foreign investment and acquisition that might eventually obfuscate our voice entirely? Our voice replaced by an emotionless, detached hive mind, a juggernaut sweeping across the face of the earth whether we are ready for that or not.
We pray for peace, reverence for each and all. We pray for awareness of what lies in each heart that in the eyes of a child looks like the never ending smile and perpetual ripple of laughter. We pray for the children to save us from a wasteland that has not supported the mystery and awe of our own creative natures, our essence and Truth. We open our hearts to this great Truth and support our children so that they might do their ‘job’!
