It can be hard to truly know what the right thing to do is, when you can clearly see the path way that someone you lOve is walking, when they themselves don’t truly appreciate, in the now, the decisions that they are making and where that path will take them. You know that if you speak out, it may be received as judgement; you know that if you don’t speak out, guilt will seize you; you know that if you take action in what you perceive as being support, you are potentially disempowering the other; you know that if you don’t take action, you could be blamed for being retrospectively unsupportive. You also know of the complexity of your own process and it is likely too that they also have a deeply complex inner process and therefore maybe this painful path is the only path available to them to truly learn. But should you not do or say something, from your own experience, knowing well the path they tread? Or should you just be there for them, should they ask for guidance and support? It is hard, disabling and frustrating. And yet it is what you are moving through – the desire to seek a higher support and action, a way of helping that comes from spirit and not from judgement ; that comes from altruism, concern and compassion, not from judgement, arrogance or interference. But you also know that you cannot truly help another, if they are not in a place to want that help. All you can do, therefore is hold the space around them. Hold them uppermost in your minds eye; ask for Uri-el to guide them towards clarity to see through their Veil and to Micha-el to cleave a way through the fog and ego, so that they can truly ‘see’ the path that they walk. It is a time to act, but not in a physical way. It is time to support, but quietly and invisibly. It is time to show compassion, even if that means keeping to your own path. Not easy. But that maybe what is appropriate.
