noun: chela; plural noun: chelas
- a follower and student of a guru.
Another definition we would like to provide is “truth and wisdom seeker.”Mother Mary
Many who claim to be teachers are early students, and those who believe they are novices are often early masters. Do not judge yourself on your path, wait for others to catch up to you, or strain to meet the stride of those who have spent lifetimes preparing for the challenges they are enduring in this one.
“Be mindful of your speaking voice,” a number of us might recommend, and if an immediate retort of sarcasm comes to mind, trust there is unhealed anger lurking beneath the surface.
“Do not change for anyone,” we could also tell you, yet it would be wise for us to also mention that giving yourself a goal to achieve is both noble and worthwhile, especially if you are thinking of long-term success in spite of short-term discomfort.
It is our hope that you will continue to reap the benefit of our words.
Your soul will lead you to where you are meant to be. It is both strong and soft, sturdy yet flexible, silent but sometimes loud, and everything in between. Be all of who you are, especially when others are rallying against you, attempting to obstruct your every move. Those are the times you must tap into your wellspring of strength and perseverance, which you have harnessed throughout multiple lifetimes.
“Courage, young traveler,” a few of us have said to this scribe and others over the years. We challenge you to make use of your time on Earth, for there are many places beyond it that you visit, both during your dreamtime and what we often refer to as the “time between time.”
You are not your body, as many of you have read before. You are also not the things you have done or not done, nor are you the misjudgments of others. You are, however, a magnificent creation of Divine light, embodied in human form. Embrace the gift this opportunity provides you, and embrace the opportunities this gift provides you, for they are one and the same, just as you are all One in the Universal Consciousness of All That Is, no matter how far apart your perceptions may seem from one another.
Before I continue, I would like you to ponder this one request:
Take time to acknowledge the blessings your life has provided to you. While you may need to dig deeper for some of them, even disappointments and failures will lead you to brighter and greater discoveries once the pain of loss has left your immediate awareness.
Take the time to acknowledge disappointments as opportunities for enlightened advancement, for the lessons you glean from them will help to clear the path, just as stepping-stones pave the way from one destination to another but are rarely—if ever—carried by the person who uses them as what they are meant to be: transition placements that allow you to maintain your footing on your rightful path.
“Where do you wish to be in a year from now?” the inimitable El Morya asked the other day.
How has your intuition served you throughout your life? Are you willing to allow it to continue to be your constant and faithful companion, regardless of who has come and gone over the years you have occupied your temporary physical body, which will be discarded without shame or regret once this lifetime has come to its logical and natural end? To some, this statement might not seem accurate, but to others who have consciously embraced the highs and lows of the Earth’s topography, so are the highs and lows of the Universal landscape meant to be experienced so that you can appreciate how many blessings are sure to accumulate in what we have often lovingly referred to as a person’s “repertoire of acknowledgment.”
“How vast this has become!” you could easily observe, were you to take a brief trip through the Akashic Records. Ask to be shown them during your dreamtime and make notes upon awakening. Who came to visit and teach you? Who has come to warn you during previous nocturnal sojourns not to travel down a certain path?
How many of you would like to become adepts after the path of a chela has been traversed and until the masters of your soul’s choosing have done their part to teach you how to manoeuvre through the landscape you chose before birth?
“Ah, the spirit of a warrior,” one of us could observe. So many scars, from battles both won and lost. But the heart, often weary from traveling many great distances without the comfort it seeks, longs to return home to the soul’s light where it knows it will forever be safe from harm. Remember that during the remainder of this life term, dear and brave travelers, for you are watched over at every step and curve that you encounter.
Until next time,
I Am Maitreya
