Christ Jesus asserted, I give you my peace. However, he also proclaimed, I came not to bring peace but the sword. So, what gives?
When Spirit opens our third eye and we develop the eye of Daniel the Prophet, we receive a new image and understanding of Jesus’ two pronouncements. Rather than see them as being contradictory, we see them as complementary opposites, two sides of one coin. Without the sword of truth, there can be no peace. Without peace, we cannot rightly wield the sword of truth.
In my dream communion with Lord Gabriel on May 4, which I shared in my last blog, he placed me in a holodeck. In three scenes there, I observed and finally took part in using the sword of truth (a gun or sword, symbolizing words of truth) to slay someone who refused to change. When viewed from the vantage point of peace, this seemed like a horrible thing to do, like I had been adversely and negatively influenced by a former fallen friend to act harshly, self-righteously and inappropriately.
However, when someone in our orbit is in error, refuses to acknowledge and eliminate and heal this imbalance, even after we try our very best three times (mind, body and soul) to help him in a peaceful and loving way, then we have no any other choice but to remove this person from our immediate force field and to move forward. In my dream, this was shown as killing the person. Killing, however, is symbolic of removing, eliminating, renouncing, as with the twelfth power of elimination-renunciation. Dreams seldom are literal, but rather are symbolic.
I don’t know of many light workers who like to deal with such “thorns in the flesh” or such challenges to remove error from their midst. All of us would rather proceed peacefully, lovingly, including everyone in our grace-filled embrace. And yet, Jesus said, If thy eye offend thee, pluck it out; if thy hand or foot offend thee, cut it off; for it is better to lose a part of our body than our whole body.
Of course, we first apply this truth to ourselves and our own error. When we see some imbalance within us, we mercifully and yet mercilessly cut it out, eliminate it, transmute it, kill it. If not, it will grow, fester and spread, and lead to our downfall and destruction. Via our third eye window, we see clearly into the depths of our soul and then wield the sword to set things right.
Having demonstrated this in our own life, Spirit now brings others to us who need similar soul surgery. Via our clear imagination faculty, we see the error that is within each such person, which is covered over by denial, disbelief and disinterest. As much as we do not want to or like doing it, it becomes our responsibility as a holistic healer to point out this illness in our friend, family member, foe or client/patient. We might prefer that the person take nutrients, herbs or medications to heal the condition, but sometimes we have to recommend or do surgery. Thy will be done!
What have you resisted changing in your life? How have you avoided using the sword of truth on yourself? How have you substituted being at peace for the need to eliminate, remove and destroy this error?
Who in your circle of associates refuses to change? Is it now time, after trying every way to help this person, to remove him/her from your orbit? Meditate on this. Ask Spirit for guidance. It will come clearly through your third-eye window or imagination faculty. What you see clearly, do. And be at peace.
