Lazaris on the Death of Princess Diana

Blog: Lazaris on the Death of Princess Diana

By Lazaris

Dear Everyone,

On this Saturday, the day of Princess Diana’s funeral, Lazaris dictated a message on the death of Princess Diana. I share that message with each of you.

– Jach Pursel

Amid the flurry of emotion, amid the flurry of information, many are trying to pull together the many issues around Princess Diana’s death to make them just one issue. Many are following the understandable temptation to make the many only one. It seems more manageable that way; it seems simpler to attempt to handle or deal with one overwhelming issue rather than manage, handle, and deal with many different issues.

It is simpler. But simplicity breeds difficulty. Many are having a very difficult time finding answers and understanding for the many questions: Why?

To find ease of understanding and to ease your pain, seek complexity rather than simplicity. As we have suggested when speaking of enchanted wisdom, resist the temptation and even the seduction of ‘one problem.’ In this case, we urge you to resist the temptation or even seduction of making Diana’s death ‘one issue.’ Similarly, we suggest the answer does not lie in solution; it lies in resolution.

Why did Diana die?

This is her process. She has a right to privacy. Allow her that in her death. Allow her that that so many would not allow her in life. Many would be saddened by the lack of privacy this woman was allowed in life and then attempt to invade that privacy in her death. There are those who would now condemn the photographic paparazzi only to become the psychic paparazzi claiming to have the ‘inside reasons’ for her death. Why did she die? This is her process. Honor and respect her by honoring and respecting it.

Why does this death touch the world so profoundly?

This year could have been called a year of presence. During this year, we have often reminded you, many will awaken. You, the mapmaker who goes out ahead of the consensus to which you are still a part, have experienced the range of emotion that accompanies awakening; most have not.

Now the world is beginning to awaken; the world is initiating presence. The many peoples are beginning to awaken and find the first vestiges of presence. Without authority, without a relationship with Soul and Spirit, such awakening and such presence risks sadness and despair.

Diana’s death is a trigger; it is a catalyst. Her death gave people within the world a permission and an authority they could not yet find within themselves. People are feeling emotions more fully than before. Some are feeling emotion and they do not even know why. They are waking up without knowing what is happening to them. The first emotions are often ones of sadness, loss, loneliness, and tragedy. Diana’s death gives people a reason. It has become a source of empowerment for a world where people could not find that source within their hearts and minds. Now they use that empowerment to open their hearts … and their minds.

With this awakening, so the Soul is awakening. People are discovering their Soul. No matter the name they say, it is their Soul.

What is Soul?

We remind you, Soul is a love. It is a love, that at one moment, weeps at the unjust and inhumane in the world and in the next moment rejoices at the smallest act of human kindness. It is a love, that at one moment perceives hope and possibility in every event, and in the next grieves when you are unable or unwilling to respond to that hope and possibility.

The world discovers that it has Soul … weeping and grieving. This death is the trigger; it is a catalyst. It is not the unjust or the missed hope of one woman that touches the world so profoundly. It is the unjust and inhumane, it is the missed or unanswered hope and possibility, in the world that touches so deeply.

Why does Diana’s death touch you?

While Soul is awakening in the world, your Soul is calling you to the adventure. This death is a trigger that you can utilize to awaken passion so that you can hear that call. It is not the only trigger or the one of your Soul’s preference. But it is here and your Soul will not let this death be in vain.

The call is one that brings you to face what really matters to you in your life and to face your own complexity. Your Soul calls you to deepen and expand your feminine and masculine energy regardless of your gender as it also calls you to explore the hallows of love, beauty, enchantment, or solitude. Your Soul calls you to embrace that love that weeps and rejoices; it calls you to embrace that love that perceives and grieves.

Why does this death touch you?

Diana was a tragic figure and her life ended in tragedy. She is neither a goddess nor an archetype; she was a woman with a script of tragedy. Arthur Miller’s Willy Loman was not a god or an archetype; he was a tragic man.

The archetypal hero is one who wins at life and at living. They know victory and they also know triumph: the victory of character. The hero has a ‘flaw.’ They will always fight for dignity and for freedom; they will always fight for character and integrity.

The archetypal tragic hero does not win. They may fight valiantly, but they do not win.

We say ‘flaw’ because that is how this incredible strength is viewed and often perceived within your consensus reality. Too many people, now alienated, cut-off, and feeling abandoned, have ‘healed’ this ‘flaw.’ Too many have given up; too many have quit.

As we have said, the ‘flaw’ of the tragic hero is that they will not stop searching for their dignity and for their right to be free. Even though that seeking will destroy them, they will not give up; they will not quit. Some who begin as potential tragic heroes find their spirituality and become heroes. Their victory is one of character; they triumph.

Many tragic heroes do not find their spirituality. They do not hear the call of Soul. Many tragic heroes don’t win … many die a tragic death.

To define a tragic death by the number of broken bones or by the mangle of metal and flesh is sophomoric. A tragic death is a death that comes when a tragic hero dies.

Diana fought for her dignity and freedom. Most often she didn’t know it. She was mystified by why she did the things she did. Often she had no idea what it was for which she was fighting, but she would not stop fighting. She made many mistakes, but she had this ‘flaw,’ she would not quit.

Her search was not a noble one though her station in life was called such. She did not do it right nor did she find what she sought. She traveled down many wrong roads in her search. She remained too entangled and encumbered in her blockages, but she did not quit. Even though she did not find her spirituality, she did not stop looking. In the midst of her tragedy, she was a hero … a tragic hero.

Please hear us, we are not talking about why she died. That is still private. We are talking about why she is a tragic hero. Because she was a tragic hero who never found her dignity or her freedom, her death touches you. That is the nature of the tragic hero’s death. It touches you deeply. It touches your authenticity and conscience built on freedom and dignity. It touches your character and integrity. The death of a tragic hero touches your Soul.

Why are you touched by this death?

It carries too many symbols around the fear of loss and the fear of death itself. If this could happen to her, what could happen to you? She was a princess: rich, famous, beautiful; had clout. She had all the stuff the child-adolescent thinks would solve all your problems. She had all the stuff the weak Ego-I claims ‘if only you had your life would be wonderful.

The child-adolescent and weak Ego-I ignore all those blockages and entanglements that made Diana ‘newsworthy.’ The child-adolescent and weak Ego-I call it sad and say it’s a pity but they ignore the meaning and significance of those limitations. The Negative Ego says that it can handle those difficulties.

‘If only you had all that she had,’ Negative Ego says, ‘you could handle it.’ Negative ego can sound convincing in its lie. It is persuasive when it tries to convince you that ‘if only … ,’ you would do it right.

For many, this death touches because it threatens the death of child’s or adolescent’s fantasy. The fantasy of being the princess (or the prince) needs to die. This death can be a beginning for many. This is another reason why it touches so deeply.

Why does it touch the world with a sense of shock?

Diana was Cinderella. Though she was already a princess, she was perceived as being at sufferance of that Royal Family. The Queen and that ‘stuffy and boring Royal Family’ were perceived as the wicked stepmother and stepsisters.

Was Dodi the new prince charming? Many would like to think so and the rumor mill will spin a Rumplestiltskin story that he was. Facts will belie the fairytale, but . .

Racing home in her regal carriage … it was after midnight, after all … Suddenly, the beautiful carriage becomes a pumpkin … a hopelessly smashed pumpkin.

That’s not how the story is supposed to end. The world is shocked.

Why did Diana die?

There are many women, aged 36, single mothers, with two growing children, who die. There are many people who, at their eleventh hour or just beyond it, enter the narrows (the tunnel) and get caught. Her reasons are as personal and as unique as any woman’s might be.

When people die, there is a tendency to canonize or demonize them. The fear of death generates this phenomenon. Saints and devils, as lofty or as low as they may be, are not people. It is safe for saints or demons to die. It is frightening for people to die.

Why did you allow the death to affect you so?

Could it be to reveal more of the mystery and more of the secrets of life, of love, and of caring?

Perhaps it was to reveal the mysteries of your Soul with its dignity as a world reveals its Soul through tragedy … to discover more of your Spirit with its joy while the world awakened its Spirit with despair.

Maybe you are currently unraveling the old patterns to retrieve more of what has been lost of your power while dismantling current patterns to restore what has been forgotten or abandoned of self. Maybe pieces of the past are dying in you so that more of who you are becoming can begin to grow and blossom

It could be that you wanted to remember and reunite with the nature and the grace that is still present and now awakening within humankind all over your world. The grace of human beings as well as the depth of Soul and Spirit are beautiful … so much more beautiful than you yet know.

Millions have placed flowers and have lighted candles. These flowers will wilt, die, and be swept away. These candles will go out.

Will yours?

The choice is now yours.

This is where you are coming from. Where will it lead?

You are not alone. Never again will you be alone. Never. We love you so … more than you can ever know … we love you.

Love and peace,

— Lazaris
