Exchange with the guardians of my Akashic Records regarding the Brussels Attacks, 22 March 2016.
Please comment on yesterday’s attacks in Brussels. How can a person hear of this news and keep their peace of mind?
When hearing, seeing, this type of news in the media, we acknowledge that it is very hard not to get sucked into the story.
What do you mean by ‘story’?
The story of them vs us, the story of victimhood, the story of the need to protect form.
But it is lives taken, we are talking about here, and many, many lives traumatized!
Still, it is a story, or many stories if you will. Reality is only lovely, good and benevolent.
What, then, is the reality in these occurrences?
The reality is expressed on the level of being, rather than on the level of doing. Take into consideration that everyone is always doing the best they can within the framework they have for their lives, within the framework of their convictions and beliefs. People can’t help it: they will always act in accordance to what they think makes the most sense within their framework at a given time. If you can see that, you can see that in the doing part of these occurrences, everything that happened, happened within that law, within that logic. You might want to read again what we said about this when we discussed the Paris attacks.
Next, take into consideration that an incarnation into materiality is only form. The soul that experiences a particular incarnation is so much more than just that temporary form. It is like a jacket, put on for just a while. When the jacket is no longer serving the purpose it was meant to serve, it will be discarded and the soul will consider other forms of expression.
That takes care of the people having died in the incidents. What about the children suffering burns, people losing their limbs, relatives worrying and hurting?
The experience these people go through is painful and harrowing, and we see that. But pain and torment are not the end note. They never are. They serve a higher purpose: moving away from identification with form and identifying the underlying spiritual impulse that determines who you are. And this is how:
- All those people rushing in to help will point the way to beingness through their spontaneous shows of love
- All of the healthcare workers those affected will come into contact with will point the way to beingness through their dedicated care
- Family members of those affected will show the way to beingness through their dedication to their relationship
- The prayers and shows of support offered worldwide will show the way to beingness through their focus on unity.
These are just a few examples. From our perspective, the gains in love in the long run are far greater than the pain inflicted now.
It has to do with the vibrations generated by those who respond. Their higher vibrations will lift the commonly shared field. Abraham Hicks speaks of the contrast that makes you aware of what you truly want. Here you have your contrast; now decide what you truly want.
What would your advice be to me, an outsider?
Send love, see the bigger picture. Know that all involved, so called victims as well as so called perpetrators, are moving away from identification with form towards an experience of who they truly are. They are all involved in this process of coming into their own, each having their own challenges and hurdles. We are all in this together, even though appearances may tempt you to think differently. Be love, stubbornly, no matter what the appearance.
ACIM’s lesson 84 in part states:
I cannot suffer, I cannot experience loss and I cannot die. I am not a body. I would recognize my reality today. […] My Creator did not create this as I see it.
Take heart. Become quiet and still and ask to be shown.
