Dear Sara: Here are my questions: First, how are you viewing the latest world events from a spiritual perspective? Second, how might we bring spiritual tools to support new ways of being for those steeped/attached to the “left brain/logical/linear ways of operating?” Third, how have you personally responded to those who think your gifts are “woo-woo” or unimportant?—Amalia
From Sara: From a left brain/logical/linear perspective, the world is a great big tragic mess right now. It's very difficult for everyone, no matter which "side" you're on. In fact, much of the issues is because we're still stuck in the idea that we have to take sides. Belonging to or finding one's "tribe" iis an old idea, and we're being invited to let that go. From a spiritual perspective, we are going through growing pains—the kind of awkward, tumultuous, dramatic, emotional sorts of growing pains we might experience when we are moving through any big stage of growth: kindergarten, puberty, the 20s, the 40s, the 50s and beyond—all the passages where everything seems to not make sense, not work and not be right. In essence, we are letting go of who we were, and entering into a new stage. In the world’s case at the moment, we are letting go of extreme selfishness, greed and immaturity and all the strong beliefs that we and only we are "right"—and entering into a state of communal awareness—the understanding of collective soul. This is not an easy passage! A lot of ego must be left behind. In answer to your second question, in terms of bringing spiritual tools to help others, I would say: work on yourself first. As part of collective soul, each soul who drops ego lifts the entire collective. It’s impossible to provide understanding to someone who’s not ready for it—they literally can’t get it. So don’t worry about trying to shift others. Keep working your own garden. Act and live from the highest place you know how, and push yourself to go further. As collective soul expands, others will follow. If you want to pray or meditate on the world, do that—but your own inner expansion is what really lifts the collective. What affects one affects One. Thirdly, as for people worrying about if I am too “woo woo” or unimportant, I don’t concern myself with that. Today’s “woo woo” is tomorrow’s common knowledge. We each have a soul destiny, and once you know your soul destiny and commit to that, what others think is irrelevant. Some people will “get it” and some people won’t. No matter. The more important aspect is committing to your soul destiny and fulfilling what you are here to do.
