Guan Yin Speaks. Day 8, finding the jewel
This is Guan Yin. Greetings to you all, all my love to you.
It is taught that the spiritual journey is not an easy one. Not only do you have your own human issues to deal with and purify, but not all souls that you encounter are going to appreciate your light. Can you imagine how many possible ways there are to express the infinite mind here on your planet?
As many as there are people, animals, plants and more. There are going to be light beings attracted to you. These may be your teachers, your students, the souls that you offer healing to, people you meet randomly through a day. Though there really is no random.
There are also beings that are not quite so filled with light, in fact there are dark beings who are “raising hell” right now, seeing the Mother Earth’s upheavals as a time to move in and create chaos. Their buddha nature might be hidden at this time. It’s all part of the one, everything is on purpose, though there is a great deal of instability right now where things could go a number of ways within that structure of “on purpose.”
Once you emerge from your own sleepingness and begin to wake to your Buddha nature, many stones can appear on the path. In fact some negative energies may actively seek to harm you, frightened that they will be lost if your light succeeds. Fear is the big word there, fear can be a fountainhead from which comes its many offspring, anger, lack, violence, conflicts of all kinds. Fear closes the heart.
It’s important to remember who you are, where you came from, and what had to happen for you to be here. Think of the analogy of the diamond. Real diamonds are forged in the depths of the earth, in the darkest dark. Unthinkable pressure, heat, stress, vast eons of time, and black darkness are required to form the pure clear crystal known to you as diamond. What happens when the light hits a faceted diamond? It explodes in a gathering of colored rays that hold the eye with deep fascination. Can you see that you have been emerging from this crucible of creation for a long time? If you are reading this, you are on the path, and may resonate with this.
A diamond is purity, and yet a fierce strength that can cut through virtually anything. Darkness may come at you from any direction, turn and face everything with your diamond light. The Buddha journey is dark nights, forgetfulness, loneliness, even fear. The light is always there though, buried some days in your dark caverns. As a diamond, it doesn’t change because its outer veneer is dirty, or buried, or forgotten. The journey is also light and joy, beauty and freedom, enlightenment and self-realization.
Remember this diamond nature that is incorruptible, and indestructible. Rest in it, shine it, radiate it to everything that comes at you.
Be a diamond.
That is all. I love you.”
