TEMPERANCE

“Now you must learn that only infinite patience produces immediate effects. This is the way in which time is exchanged for eternity. Infinite patience calls upon infinite love, and by producing results now it renders time unnecessary.” - A Course In Miracles 5.VI.12

For those of us who have peered through the veil and acknowledged the polarities of light and dark that together create the third dimensional world, maintaining trust in a benevolent outcome for humanity has been our biggest challenge.

We know in our hearts that the light will prevail, but our external world continues to portray corruption, manipulation, deceit and control as all-powerful and insurmountable forces. The dark players at the top of the pyramid seem mysteriously immune to universal justice and the karmic laws to which the rest of us have agreed.

Early in our awakening many of us questioned the sanity of the world and found it severely lacking. We have since questioned and unraveled our beliefs about good and bad, right and wrong, what holds value, and even what we are.

Now, in moments of frustration and hopelessness, some of us are questioning the very light of which we and all that we imagine ourselves to be are made. When we are not distracting ourselves with the demands of the day, many are dipping into exhaustion and despair. Our hearts have cracked open at the depth of suffering our earth has been made to bear.

On the level of physicality this period of “reckoning” is intolerable, but regardless of how dreary or desolate we feel, there remains an ember shining within our being that will not give in to the darkness.

We are so very tired of this fantastical movie, but whether or not we realize it, most of us are in conflict over how we want it to end. While our personality selves clatter for immediate and impassioned revelations and disclosure, our Higher Selves urge us to trust the plan, hold the light, and surrender fully to the moment.

Although our egos call belligerently for the Tower, the awakening collective has drawn the Temperance card and is receiving a loving, angelic reminder that our deepest desires, the colorful quests of our open and spinning hearts, will only manifest through the call for unity and divinely appointed timing.

We are lovingly reminded to let go of our expectations and all that we think we know, to be patient and calm, and to embrace the perspective of the One, Infinite Creator.

We are asked to have faith in what we cannot see, to flow like the water streaming between chalices, to drop our attachments to separation and lack as we maneuver the rugged mountain path, knowing within every cell of our being that, with patience and perseverance, all will evolve into light.

As we release our fears, our resistance, our expectations, and embrace the present moment, that eternal space that exists beyond time, our healing is guaranteed.

“You have elected to be in time rather than eternity, and therefore believe you are in time. Yet your election is both free and alterable. You do not belong in time. Your place is only in eternity, where God Himself placed you forever.” 5.VI.1 ACIM
