Leadership: Working for the future

Broad Brush Strokes on Leadership: Working for the Future

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I think, arguably, there’s a case to be made for this statement: If you’re a lightworker, you’re a leader.

If I go outside my front door, I might not meet a person for miles who knows anything about Ascension, Disclosure, or Abundance. Well, OK, maybe a few.

If you’re even a lightworker, you’re already in a very small segment of the world’s population.

And then how many among lightworkers feel ready to offer themselves in leadership in some arena? Could I have a show of hands please?

But Archangel Michael says the Company of Heaven looks to the lightworker community for leadership.  Otherwise who would have a grasp of the situation we’re in?

Archangel Michael: If no [lightworker] steps forward into [leadership] then there is a massive vacuum because many of the billions upon your planet have not yet learned, adapted and integrated the new tools – the fullness of this new energy.

So [when non-lightworkers] are assigned … or try to step up … to create and to take the leadership role, they do not have the training and insight to do it in a way that is achievable. … So there is a lack, a vacuum of leadership.

Now, who, upon this wondrous planet, has been hiding in the shadows or edging out, or in the limelight and is ready? … Who has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities? Who is it that is prepared to do this? Well, it is the lightworkers. (1)

Let me offer an example of a situation in which the galactics will look to human partnership – and that would probably need to be from lightworkers.  In 2012, Michael said:

AAM: The Galactics have no shortage of money and so there will be some very massive projects and the funds will be made available but they will really ask for human leadership in order to be not be seen as trying in any way to assume control. (2)

Applying what Michael said earlier to this piece of news, who, upon this planet, “has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities?  Well, it is the lightworkers.”  Who else would understand what has been happening on this planet for the last fifty years?

No baseball team features the same hitter stepping up to the plate time after time. Every team has a battery of hitters, each one getting his or her turn. Michael says he wants more hitters. In the world that Michael plays in, if I understand it, intention creates hitters.

Some folks may view lightwork as just a fad of the moment. The fad will be something else next year. Remember Occupy?

That’s actually not what Michael predicted in 2013:

Archangel Michael: Does the conversation expand organically and naturally? Does the energy go out to the entire planet, those who want to hear and those who don’t want to hear? Yes, it does. But it begins with the lightworker community. That is what we have need of.

Steve Beckow: And I suppose then more and more people join the lightworker community.

AAM: Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (3)

I therefore suggest that, if you’re a lightworker, you’ll need to reconcile yourself to leadership.

The last broad brush stroke concerns the need for the leader to remain modest and free of hierarchical prejudices.  He discussed it in the context of the acquisition of sudden wealth.

Steve: I worry that sudden wealth will magnify those vasanas or core issues. What to do?

AAM: Let us … begin by saying that this is one of the reasons why we have been speaking so much about being the steward, the leader, the wayshower, the participant observer.

As you assume profile – whether it is because of money or notoriety or political power or financial power, it matters not – it gives you a sense of being elevated. We would encourage you to take the elevator to the basement.

Start there. (4)

Over and over he warned us that not even lightworkers are immune to a sense of entitlement, which launches us on a slippery slope.

If we’re to become leaders, and I mean world leaders, sidestepping the ego – not allowing it to drive the car – becomes an important matter.

My sense is that reminding ourselves constantly that we’re servants of the Divine Mother, that our wealth is the Mother’s wealth, and that we’re simply the stewards of it is probably a good start.

Wise and selfless leaders is a description of where I suggest we aim to end up.  (5)

I have a second reason for backing that aim.  The more we work for that future now, the more we raise the vibration, in my opinion. The more we raise the vibration, the more people can come with us.

I may spend a little time looking into what the Company of Heaven says about leadership. I believe it’s a timely discussion. This article has been merely a few broad brush strokes.

(EE) Leaders with large egos seem never to have made a success of themselves throughout history.

The Mother explains why. They virtually fall apart.

“It is painful for a being that seeks power for themselves or power over another, whether it is a parent over a child, a husband over a wife, a man over an army. It matters not. The yearning [for], the exercise of control never gives joy. The pain simply grows. And so the actions become more grotesque, larger, until the breakdown is and has [been] and will be occurring.” (Transcript ~ The Divine Mother: Take Up Your Divine Authority, AHWAA, February 23, 2017, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/02/28/transcript-divine-mother-take-divine-authority-ahwaa-february-23-2017/.)

Our challenge is to be leaders without falling into wanting control over others. Again another gigantic “let go.”

(5) Factoring in the increases in consciousness and heart expansion caused by events such as a planetary heart opening/solar wave. If we were in the Fifth Dimension or higher right now, we’d certainly be wise and selflless. It’s impossible not to be in that refined vibration.

On Self-Servingness

On Self-Servingness

Mirror, mirror, on the wall

Remaining aware of vasanas, patterns, and interests might be enough to keep me on track if it wasn’t for the intervention of self-servingness.

Sociologists call it the self-serving bias. The Company of Heaven calls it service-to-self.

It’s a construction of a mind convinced that we must struggle with each other for a fixed amount of resources and only the fittest will win and survive.

A strong self-serving bias then becomes an asset. The rules we follow become like: Look out for Number One; someone is eating your lunch; you snooze, you lose; etc.

Self-servingness arises unnoticed and has a certain feel to it. It tends to be suspicious and skeptical, held back and manipulative. Whenever those feelings are present, I know I’ve lapsed into being self-serving.

Again the answer for me is simple: Just stop. Just let it go. I don’t need to fill the space thus created with anything else. Allow there to be space. Everything good arises in space and won’t arise until there is space.

I know that self-servingness does not go with us into the higher dimensions. On any occasion I’ve spent in that love-filled environment, the self is almost totally forgotten as we have no outstanding desires save for more love.

Sages point out that two words are obstacles to unfoldment. They are “I want.” Ego (“I”) and desire (“want”).

When one is immersed in an ocean of love, no desires arise and hence no perception of ego.

There is no longer any self to serve.

Are we Ready?

Are We Ready?

Archangel Michael has said that the new paradigm “is leadership with love.” (1)

When he says “love,” I don’t think he means anything we can think of.  The love that he’s pointing at, in my opinion, is higher-dimensional.

He’s in fact giving us a map reading. The terrain is called “love” and he’s inviting us to align with and explore it as much as we can.

Leadership with love makes perfect sense to me while at the same time I have no idea how to put it into action.

I could pretend I have an idea. I could manage the subject with cleverness and humor. But it would only mask the fact that I have no idea how to come from leadership with love.

What does it mean for me?  It means leading from a place of flowing love out to the world.  That’s the job to be done.

I breathe love up from my heart on the inbreath and circulate it within myself on the outbreath.  I feel it revive me.

From this place, what does leadership look like? Really.

It looks like holding what the people I serve want in one scale of the balance and what dharma, the universal law requires me to do in the other. It looks like maintaining a balance between what is pleasing and what is appropriate, what is enjoyable and what is ethical.

And it means, while balancing the two, making decisions or speaking out in ways that serve the public good, the highest good, the global welfare.

As soon as the Reval occurs and after vacations, we’ll be gathering the troops and planning the campaign against poverty and homelessness, persecution and neglect.

It’ll be larger than the largest military campaigns of World War II. It’ll require as much planning perhaps.

Are we ready? Have we thought through the fact that it’s us who are expected to be the leaders? Yes, us. Michael explained to us in 2015:

“If no [lightworker] steps forward into [leadership] then there is a massive vacuum because many of the billions upon your planet have not yet learned, adapted and integrated the new tools – the fullness of this new energy.

“So [when non-lightworkers] are assigned … or try to step up … to create and to take the leadership role, they do not have the training and insight to do it in a way that is achievable. … So there is a lack, a vacuum of leadership.

“Now, who, upon this wondrous planet, has been hiding in the shadows or edging out, or in the limelight and is ready? … Who has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities? Who is it that is prepared to do this? Well, it is the lightworkers.” (2)

A year later he informed us again:

“Those who are in a position of stewardship, of beginning projects that lead the way to the building and the re-creation of what Nova Earth is truly about … become the spokesbeings for many.” (3)

It’s us he’s talking about – you and me.

Have we expanded enough into our new roles to start thinking about how we’re going to realize the big dreams we’ve been dreaming, the “projects that lead the way to the building and the re-creation of … Nova Earth”?

The new management has given us the first opportunity to begin the renaissance of this planet.  For a limited time, until we’re joined by the galactics, it’ll be our show. And are we ready to demonstrate what lightworkers on Planet Earth can do when given the tools?
