In our blog, you’ll find information about metaphysics and spirituality from Lazaris and Jach, excerpts from Lazaris recordings and interviews, and travelogues from Jach’s adventures around the world.
We had planned to go back to California for the March events of course, and when they were postponed until December, we thought we’d go back anyway.
Yes, we’ll go; no we’ll stay. No we’re going to go anyway; no definitely we are staying here. A doctor friend had told us of that soon no one
would be allowed in or out of Colombia and that lockdowns were coming for the States and for Colombia. With that news our final decision was
All this happened on the eve of a long holiday weekend here. The Governor of our state, Valle de Cauca, called for a curfew during the long weekend
as a way to keep people home and away from large celebratory gatherings. A few other Governors and the Mayor of Bogotá did the same. However
the Colombian President, perhaps angry that they went ahead without letting him make a national decree, cancelled the curfews say that “social
distancing was absurd.” Sadly a familiar cry by some others who claim to be leaders. However, the Governors and Mayors countermanded the President
with an outcry of support from the people.
Curfew in place, it was followed by a nationwide lockdown. We had prepared for the four day curfew, but then we had to scramble to prepare for
three week lockdown. Thousands of Colombians had to scramble too. However, a country that seems to thrive on chaos, handled the situation well.
We loaded up one car with the dogs, their supplies, and with Enrique’s dialysis machine with its many supplies. Another car was overloaded
with our stuff. Then we were off to the country.
We were worried though. There was a deadline time for leaving the city and we were late. Of course. [s] We might be stopped and turned back or
fined or both. We worked a bit of magic and we headed out. The otherwise gridlocked road was almost free of cars, trucks, and people. We moved
quickly coming to and then driving past two potential military check points. We reached the final curve in the main road and our turnoff was
just ahead. As we turned from the paved road to the open road (narrow dirt road with its share of ruts and boulders) we looked ahead. The military
check point was about 100 yards beyond our turn off. Magic was afoot. We will be here until Easter at least. There is talk of extending the
quarantine for those over 70 or even for everyone.
These are painful times and tragic times and the days are rife with fear, and people are dying and people are loosing everything and people are
getting lost. The dark and darkening chaos exacerbates the situation threatening the unspeakable of the unknown or of an abyss. In the mire
of darkness, of pain, tragedy and fear, I think of what Lazaris said in South Africa: He said that we stood on a pinnacle and that things were
about to get worse. Where and how we stepped from that pinnacle were crucial. He added what I thought was an aside: Things are about to get
much worse. I also think about what Lazaris said as the Vermont days were concluding: It’s time to be the Sentinel, the Champion, and the Guardian
that we always have planned to be and that we are destined to be.
So I am being conscious of where I step and how I step. Where? Into the chaos. How? With resolve.
I am stepping into the dark and then into the darkest parts of that chaos and in that depth, I am looking for the light. It’s there. Simply said,
I found that light in the beauty and in the love. The dark chaos is neither beautiful or loving; this novel virus is not beautiful and it’s
not loving. But in the darkest chaos, and I think it has to be the chaos beyond the dark and darker, the chaos that is the darkest, there is
hope. Not the hope of desperation or last resort, and not my hope. In that darkest chaos, there is the shimmering hope that is a reflection
of the soul and spirit of humankind. It’s not the hope that any of us can muster. It’s beyond what we can create. Luminous hope? Divine hope?
And this hope is beauty, and is love. Not beautiful and loving, it’s beauty and it’s love. And I know without the need for certainty, that this
shimmering hope is there in the darkest recesses of the chaos of this virus. It is waiting to be found.
So we will wash the vegetables from our garden. We will stay healthy and safe, and we will work our magic.
During this trying and turbulent time in the world, Lazaris has responded with a message with suggestions of how to respond as the masterful magicians
that we are. A meditative suggestion is also included in order to help us temper the negative energies as well as bring in and augment more positive
Message from Lazaris ...
All right. All right. Well, well, certainly so. These are confusing and troubling times. In the frenzy of global activity, in the chaos of the current increasing violence, and with the escalating threats of tragedy and terror, it is increasingly difficult to know where to turn or how to respond. You are a magician, a masterful one at that, but with all that's happening and with the speed with which these crises are unfolding, it is easy to lose sight of who you are, of why you are, and of how to be who and why you are. You ask for help, direction, guidance ... something. We respond.
We have spoken of the prevailing energies of this phase — of these months, turbulent and threatening months — and those energies are present and they do and will prevail. Boredom, yearnings for freedom, awakening human spirit, initiation, gratitude. Each has its positive expression, its potential expression, positively and also negatively. Right now, you are experiencing the negative faces and hearing the negative voices — the excessive, melodramatic, clamoring, and shouting voices — of those prevailing energies.
The world around you is overflowing with the ugliness of boredom and of the longings for freedom — that painful often blind longing to be free or freer. There is beauty in both boredom and freedom, but right now, the ugliness stands out, exists. The human spirit is awakening and it is ripe with the ugliness and constriction, too. During these tempestuous times, it is hard to know what is being set in motion or what is being caused to be, but clearly the resonance of initiation is afoot in the world, and it needs to be active — positively active with its positive resistance — in your reality. Finally, gratitude, the fifth prevailing energy, can emerge from the beautiful and the miraculous, but it can also emerge as people lift from chaos, from turbulence, and from the unknown of tragedy, trauma, and violence. Gratitude flows along the avenues of human dignity, but more often it flows along the avenue of human tragedy.
Gratitude, being thankful. There is a sad irony here. For many within the consensus, it is hard to be genuinely thankful — genuinely grateful — for the positive things that happen in their lives; it is hard to receive, and it's harder to be beholden. Too often the expressions of such gratitude are uncomfortable or they are no more than automatic phrases. Lip service. However, when a crisis, a trauma, or a tragedy ends — when the negative is abated, it is easy to feel, to genuinely feel grateful. Such gratitude is spontaneous, it's genuine and it's real. It is genuinely felt. Such gratitude is seen as a blessing and it is eagerly embraced. Within the consensus, it is easier to imagine gratitude that emerges from the cessation of negativity. It is easier to feel that gratitude. That gratitude —the gratitude of knowing that the worst is over or that it could have been worse — is real for people —more real than the guarded gratitude of positive events. The current prevailing energy of gratitude is real. It is painfully very real.
And in many ways, the cautious times of October have come early. The potential combustion we sensed for October has surfaced earlier than anticipated.
Over the past several years, we have talked of the Crisis of Fear and of this Perfect Storm of Change. We have pointed out to you and you understand that ubiquitous fears and the fears of change generate anger, exacerbate fear, fearful hurt, and the other constricting emotions. As the many global and personal changes are especially and particularly intense right now, the angers, fears, hurts, jealousies, and blames around these changes are also especially and particularly intense. Rage begets violence and for far too many people, violence is a sorry antidote to loneliness and despair. Violence is a sorry antidote to loneliness and despair. The current violence is an expression of a world in the crises of fear and change. It is also a reflection of people, ordinary people, lost in loneliness and despair, lost in pain and untouched by love.
So what is really going on in the world? As you watch the news, as you read the analysis of events, focus on understanding: comprehending, interpreting, discerning, and assessing. It is also important to work with inference, appreciation, and valuation. It is important to gather information. It is important to listen and to hear the many sides of the various issues that touch your heart and soul.
Who's right? Who's wrong? What are the answers and who has them? What should be done? Work with the issues and the questions they spark. Choose, decide, find your answers, but realize they are your answers, maybe answers only for you. Also important, even more important, in the midst of it all, remember who you are and why you are. Yes, it is important to be involved and to be engaged in the world, within the consensus of which you are still a part, and it's critical that you do what you do, what is your nature, what is your grace: love, dream, work magic, and heal.
Yes, listen, watch, analyze, and figure out what's right and what's wrong and find your answers. Work your magic according to your listening, watching, understanding and knowing. But in it all and above all, remember: People are hurting. People are angry and scared. They are in pain. Jealous, envious, yes. Blaming, yes. But they are scared and in pain, lost in rage, loneliness, and despair.
Where to turn? How to respond? If you work your magic to restore love and to heal the angers and fears, to heal the hurt, jealousy, blame, and to heal the agony of rage and the excruciating pain of loneliness and the horrific emptiness of despair — if you work your magic to restore love and to heal the angers and fears, to heal the hurt, jealousy, blame, to heal the agony of rage and the excruciating pain of loneliness and the horrific emptiness of despair there is space for the answers, the right, good, and true answers, to fall into place. There is space for forgiveness and second chances. People are broken. Work magic to heal what's broken.
May we suggest a meditative magical working? If you wish, we will accompany you and we will work our magic alongside you as you work your magic. If you wish, invite us to come along with you. Enter your safe place and imagine a tiny speck of light, no more than that of firefly, a shimmer, a glimmer in the corner of your eye, no bigger than a spark of a sparkler at a summer's celebration of July. Imagine. Imagine. Imagine. Let us be with you. Then, let us work together to respond to these troubled times.
You asked. We respond. And now we close, with love, with love, yes, with love ... and peace.
