Guan Yin Speaks. Day 21. The big end of the telescope.
"Greetings, this is Guan Yin. Blessings to all.
The theory is, that if you look into the end of the telescope that is pointed toward what you want to bring closer, a tiny image of that thing appears. This is a good analogy for perceiving your outer mortal experience as it truly is.
Humans come into the world able to see far, as time goes by that view gets smaller and smaller until you believe that what you see in front of your physical eyes is reality.
If, when you are offering yourself in service, and you have called and invited all the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Saints, Angels, Archangels, Heaven's animals, all forms of light.... the infinity of Divine, Tao, Source and beyond Source, all universes, galaxies, stars, moons, planets, suns and nebulae....if you have called all your blessing power and all who walk with you on your soul journey to assist you in your service, and no one shows up, which view are you going to look at?
Which thing do you think is real? The tiny little window of Facebook, or Zoom, or Livestream? Even the in-person event you might be trying to hold. Or can you behold the vast window of the infinite Divine? If all you see is the bitty window with a few interested souls watching, or maybe no one at all, you are doing a disservice to the bigger picture.
See what I am saying. The one dimensional frame of your dream experience is an illusion. Now turn around and look behind you at the spectacular multidimensional view of Divine Beings and worlds.
If you chant the Da Bei Zhou Greatest Compassion Mantra of Guan Yin, what do you think happens? Who do you think comes? Who have you called? Look. If your breath is not taken away, if you do not want to weep with joy and wonder, you have heart-opening to do. If you have seen it, good for you!
Now, why do other souls not respond to your sincere and earnest call and offering of service? Well, consider what it is that could be a blockage there. The being through which this teaching is flowing is well acquainted with this question. You have come so far, have gained light and power, and are wholly willing and ready to serve. And yet the hall seems empty. It can be confusing.
"Why do they not come? I only want to serve and bless people, animals, nature, the mother Earth. What am I doing wrong?"
If you've read the previous postings, you might know the answer to that already. It is Karma. Become quiet, and without judging yourself, grasp that you may have lived lives, even many lives, where you misused others spiritually. Do you think it is possible that you or your ancestors have betrayed others? Broken trust? Abandoned them? Forgot them? We may have been a teacher in a position of trust and taught wrongly, or failed to teach at all. We may have ignored the needs of others, or pushed them aside to favor other students.
Let's do a forgiveness practice.
Go to your quiet place and be still. Breathe light deeply into your body, especially your heart.
You are of course welcome to use your own words, but here is some suggestion.
"Dear the Divine, the Source, the Tao. Dear all beings of light, all Holy ones, dear all my teachers, guides, angels and guardian ones. I bow to you in my heart.
Dear all souls in all lifetimes that I have hurt or harmed through service. Dear all souls that I have caused suffering through wrong teaching or failing to teach, that I have betrayed, abandoned and ignored in this way. Dear all souls that I have blocked from their own service, and made them invisible to those whom they would serve and bless. Dear all souls that I have harmed by interfering with your soul journey in any way.
I deeply apologize. I see now through my own experience the pain that comes from being blocked and prevented in this way. I deeply regret ever lying to you, cheating you, creating darkness on your path.
Please forgive me. Please forgive me. Please forgive my ancestors also. We know that asking forgiveness is not enough, and we promise to serve more, and to wake more. Please forgive us that you might be free from the darkness of that suffering. I am sorry also for the darkness that was left on your soul by my wrong actions, and the actions of my ancestors.
I unconditionally forgive any soul that has hurt me in this way, in any lifetime. Please accept our forgiveness as well. I offer all my love and gratitude to you. Perhaps we can serve together! Thank you, thank you, thank you."
Really connect with these souls. If you can see them with your spiritual vision, look unflinchingly at what you see. Offer more love, more gratitude, more humble request for forgiveness.
Perservere in your service, it will bloom and evolve as it is meant to do.
That is all. I love you."
