Celebrate endings—for they precede new beginnings.Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Others will see you through their own lens of awareness. Clear up your own and let that be what matters most.
It is imperative that your self-esteem not be dependent upon the perceptions of others.
Self-growth cannot occur if you are unwilling to release what no longer serves you. Do not be afraid to let go. If that includes the weight of disappointment, trust that your heart does not desire vengeance. Your heart desires freedom. Let that be your goal and your intention during the next stage of humanity’s ever-expanding evolution.
You do not need to reach beyond your comfort zone if you do not wish to do so. That stated, look for ways to push to the edge so you can pierce the illusion of limitation, once and for all.
We will be here for you, as we have always been. We will continue to whisper thoughts to promote your expansion. Please be willing to listen. In the meantime, it is our sincere hope that this message from Maitreya inspires you to check your baggage at the door before walking through it. Do you feel the sense of freedom this offers? We hope the answer is a resounding “Yes!”
The time has come for you to break free from the past.
While this is something a number of you have heard or read before, there is often an inner declaration made that takes time to rise up to the surface for direct expression. There is little that can be done when the eruptions begin to occur other than to observe them without judgment—or, rather, misjudgment—and simply ask this expression in whatever way it presents itself what you are still attempting to protect. It is quite likely a period of vulnerability will soon follow.
Remember that it can take a while before feelings of satisfaction in the forms of relief and gratitude begin to intermingle with other areas requiring recalibration.
How many sad songs can you listen to without crying? If a part of you is intentionally numb because you fear the flow of tears may start to drown you, trust that the satisfaction of releasing an old wound will be far more empowering than attempting to pretend you can move on without some form of resolution.
If you have a dream about a person with whom you’ve had a falling out and you’re able to express yourself honestly and authentically, even if the other person is not paying attention to your words, congratulate yourself on your courage and then forgive that person for not being able to meet you where you need to be met.
Grief is challenging for people to work through when it is already compounded to begin with. Before misjudging another for coming across as a victim or martyr, we recommend sending a thought of compassion to that person instead, for fear is a shield that they know, and their grief is likely tied to a thought form of love that became distorted over time.
“It is time to move on,” the wind whispered to the woman one day.
“We know this has been difficult for you,” Maitreya said, “but there are others who will advocate in your favour without being prompted to do so. Remember how far you’ve come and how far we would like you to go during the next decade alone. You would not be able to do that if you waste valuable life force energy trying to be something to someone who refuses to receive it without attachment to an outcome or collateral damage being forced in your direction to correct.”
He then added, “If someone has masked their own deceit by projecting their misjudgments upon you, remember that the barbs have been sharpened from the inside and their projection is also a desire for relief.”
The woman paused for a few moments to allow Maitreya’s words to nestle within.
“No one has power over your thoughts except you,” Maitreya declared. “Let that bring you comfort, especially when you are facing what might seem like insurmountable odds at first glance. No one who wanted to climb a mountain would do so without preparing for a descent. Doing so will require you to relinquish your fear of going backwards and trusting that the steps you have taken forward are already set within your repertoire of acknowledgment for safekeeping.”
“Do you need to keep your light in a jar to prove that it is there?” the fool then asked.
“Your light is your own. Do not let anyone take it from you, yet also give yourself permission to shine it without expectation or attachment to a specific outcome,” Maitreya remarked. “The soul will bring things full circle. Sometimes doing so will require you to retrace your steps so that you can create a path to rely on, especially if you can’t see far ahead until the skies begin to clear. Be patient. Be calm. Persevere. All the great explorers who made a name for themselves did so by trusting that what is on the horizon is making way for a new beginning. And so it is.”
