Lightworkers are a rare breed indeed.
There’s not many crowds we can fit into but then again, there’s not many we’d even want to. Many of us have been through awesome trials and somehow survived… and there’s many more who don’t even know that this is what or who they are, pieces are still falling into place. We are from every race, creed and tongue and when we find others like ourselves, it feels like coming home… whether it’s a one time meeting for ten minutes on public transit, or hanging out for the afternoon with the weird uncle that nobody else seems to understand. You’re not likely to see us singing and dancing wildly in the spotlight, but you’ll probably call one of us when you need a friend to talk to. We’re integrated with the heart of humanity and without us, according to Plato, humanity would lose it’s way in the dark.
We are also the outcasts, the ones society has pushed aside. Often used as a bad ex-ample by others because our values may not align with what everybody else is doing. We’re the ones whispered about sometimes in a social setting, or that just naturally seem to be attacked or put down for no apparent reason. We could do the work it would take to fit in, because, generally, we’re a highly intelligent bunch… and some of us may even find common ground for a season, but inevitably realize that we can no longer compromise. We’re generally not good poker players because we have a hard time pretending, we feel it all so deeply, and it shows. We need to walk the talk, and if we’re not then it can seem like our own conscience is working against us… because it is. But when we find the groove, get in tune, none of these outer conditions seem to matter, or else they transform themselves naturally it seems, as we shine and resonate in the joy and peace and harmony and abundance that’s been inside our hearts all along.
We don’t seek to give you anything or ask you for anything except the realization of what it is that we all, as human beings, truly are in the core of our being. All the great teachings have made reference to at least one human figure that was able to heal the sick, give sight to the blind, or even raise the dead. Some teachings even say that it’s possible for us to do even greater things. I can’t seem to wrap my brain around what greater things may be, but I’d sure like to find out. This is our quest for learning, seek-ing, asking, knocking… and it’s driven the progress of modern man to it’s current heights, evidenced throughout history, all over the world, and is what will continue to drive us to new heights yet to come.
We are the hope. Come to help sort it all out. To help you to figure out what’s impor-tant for yourself, not according to what we may have been told by others, but according to your own highest good, according to your own heart. We don’t place ourselves above others on the path because we understand that we’re mostly just figuring it out ourselves… still learning, still growing, remembering who it is that we really are, all of us. At our best, we’re just way show-ers, doing our best to be the change we want to see in the world.
We are lightworkers, and the beautiful thing is that anyone, no matter who they are or where they come from, should they choose, is completely welcome to be one too. For those who have already chosen, be encouraged that you’re not alone. No matter what, I salute you. I appreciate the time you’ve taken to hear my views. I honestly, humbly, salute you.
The place where God resides in me worships the place where God resides in you.
