Despite any doubts you may have, the moment for humanity's awakening into full consciousness is getting ever closer, and it will not be delayed or prevented. As light- bearers your task is simply to do as you have been doing and hold the light on high so that all may see it. Many are looking for it, and as it is the divine intent that they find it, then they will.
To hold the light is to demonstrate loving attitudes at all times. Of course, as incarnate beings in the illusion, your capabilities are limited and your egos can and do interfere, causing you to sometimes think, speak, or act impulsively in ways that you may later regret. Do not judge yourselves harshly for errors occurring in this way. If an apology would be appropriate, make it sincerely and move on. Be aware that admitting to another that you have made an error is healing for you, and can be very inspiring for the other. If the other chooses not to accept your apology it is of no real consequence; what matters is that you corrected your error, which is in itself loving behavior, and that is what you are intending to live and demonstrate.
To demonstrate is to teach, and you demonstrate what you believe. This can be very revealing when a belief is claimed and something different is demonstrated by behavior and lifestyle. Make sure that what you demonstrate is what you want to teach; if it is not, then you need to reassess, reevaluate, and revise your beliefs to correct this imbalance. Many claim honorable beliefs but are unable to demonstrate them in their own lives, and when you notice this kind of conflict between belief and display it can serve as a useful reminder to check and confirm that the beliefs you are demonstrating are those you intend to demonstrate. For instance, it is very easy to slip into unloving behavior by just failing to pay attention when rushing somewhere to avoid being late.
In the illusion, life is confusing, because you want to behave lovingly and yet frequently you find yourselves in situations in which it appears that to do so will cost you respect and honor because you will seem weak when you are expected to be forceful. But that is not the case: it is easy to be forceful because being forceful is endemic. But it does not lead to agreement or resolution as it causes defensiveness, and often issues that need to be addressed are avoided or passed over. Whereas to behave lovingly is strong; it requires and demonstrates courage, and provides a space in which meaningful discussion can take place.
When you awaken into full consciousness, all behavior will be loving so that the highest good is always sought and achieved. When people believe in and demonstrate loving attitudes there is no need to consider the possibility of deceit, betrayal, or hidden agendas, because those are issues which never arise.
As light-holders, you are demonstrating the effectiveness of loving behavior, as in the space provided by those attitudes, free and open discussion can and does occur, and remarkable resolutions to difficult problems emerge. More and more of you are doing this all over the world with amazing results, encouraging others to do likewise. This is an unstoppable wave of spiritual evolution that is spreading across the planet as you approach the moment of your awakening.
Love overwhelms all that would dishonor or disparage It because It is the divine energy field that enfolds creation in Its irresistible embrace. Humanity is to awaken into the wonder of this divine Reality.
With so very much love, Saul.
