Brenda Hoffman: Should You Ignore the Fears of Others?
by Brenda Hoffman – October 10, 2012
Others are now starting their journey on the road you have traveled for months, years or even decades.
Fear fills their lives.
Like any person drowning – in this case emotionally – many feel the need to share their fears or to be saved by someone – most notably by you who are calm.
Others starting on their path are using the Old Age need to blame someone for their misery – and again, those of you who are calm are likely targets.
Such thoughts are not to frighten you, but to help you understand how your world is evolving. That the chaos, fear and anger are not about you, but the fears of those who have started on their path.
Please remember how you could not grasp the magnitude of your personal shift, much less the Universal shift of this New Age when you started your journey months or years ago. You devoted your energies to discovering why this terrible whatever was happening to you. You felt little joy and much fear.
Now your sense of joy and calm is both a salve and an irritation to those who are beginning their journey. Why do you not understand their pain? Why are you not that interested when they wish to unburden their fears? How can you be so cheerful when their life is so dismal?
This is not an easy period for you advance Lightworkers / Wayshowers.
You cannot comprehend why others are upset about what you find glorious. And those you love are likely to be the people frazzled by this shift. You wish for their pain to disappear overnight. Yet you know they must uncover their deepest fears before they discover their joy.
What should you to do to help others on their road to joy? Nothing – other than being yourself. We have strongly encouraged you to expand your joy cells, your life of joy. Any other activity is similar to saving a drowning person who, in fear, tries to pull you under water.
You were strong enough to move through your fears. So is every entity in the Universes.
Should you allow them to drown – ignore their fears? Yes and no. By continuing to expand your life of joy, you are a beacon of light and hope for those starting on the path. You can also relay, if they ask, some or all of your struggles to help them better understand how you reached your point of joy. But do not presume to be a guru who solves all. For indeed, not all of you learn from the same materials.
Some of you swear that meditation is the only path to joy. Others, specific reading materials. And still others, that joy is discovered when you sit beside trees listening to birds.
There is not one path to the road of joy – each of you has different skills and interests. Unique paths that have brought you to joy. So it shall be for those now starting to wake.
Your role as a Wayshower / Lightworker is to tell those who are interested that joy is at the end of their fear path and they are capable of moving into joy – just as you and thousands of others have. That even though you did not enjoy moving through your deepest fears, the joy on the other side of doing so is so fulfilling you have no need to return to the Old Age.
What your loved ones wish to do with that information is not your business. You are a resource – not THE resource. It is not your role to save them from themselves. Even so, you will receive many requests to do so.
When you were in your most fearful place, would you not have paid almost any price to remove yourself from that fear? And so it is for your loved ones now. They will grasp on to anyone or anything that seems to make their process easier.
But as you have learned, clearing can only be as rapid as one’s physical being allows.
Your joy is that you helped pave the road your loved ones are now moving towards. You have lived through your deepest pain. You know that joy is not only possible – it is the goal of all who are part of the New Age.
Your loved ones will find their way with or without your help – they are also of the New Age; just not advance team members as are you. You cannot help them do so by rolling in the mud with them. It is their journey. You are the beacon. You have created and smoothed the road, but you are not the road. Allow them to find their way, just as you did with less information.
Not that they must suffer as much as you perhaps did. Your role was to create a smooth road for them to follow. You have fulfilled that role. Not it is time to shift into your beacon role by lighting their path with joy.
You cannot return to Old Age pain.
But because you have passed the halfway mark on the pain/joy spectrum, you also cannot fully comprehend your love one’s pain. You are beyond the deep pain they continue to feel. Granted, you feel pain and fear, but not at the level that was true just a few months ago.
You are their beacon of joy, their light on the road of joy you created.
How are you to relate to your loved ones’ pain? Just as your inner-being directs you to. Some of you may cry with loved ones as they experience their pain. Others will not wish to be bothered. And still others will feel sad for a few moments and then move on to a joyful thought or action.
Your inner-being is your emotional GPS system. Your emotions are no longer guided by loved ones, society rules or past behavior patterns.
Allow yourself to know that your inner-being will direct you to how best help others if they ask for help. Other than that, your only role is to be a beacon of light on their path to joy.
So be it. Amen.
