--------From An Elder in the East
"For those who do not hold an understanding of these times that are soon to be, there will be a great fear fall over them, came the speaking words from the Elder in the East position. Keep in the front of your thinking minds that fear is only seen for those places within themselves they do not yet understand. And while there are places within themselves where there is no understanding, there is fear for what is presented.
"Those who have many places within themselves which are not understood will run to another and seek their advice. But it is not their advice they are after, my brothers, it is to have another do their work for them. And there will come bud? calls from the four directions where those who are still locked within their own illusion, the sleeping ones, calls that will be heard by all who will listen to them. These calls will request that a great gathering be made, one that will include all of the controllers who have amassed many with them.
"For it will be in these times when you will see many being led by the few. And those few who will be leading are just as lost in their sleep of illusion as the ones they lead. But not many will see this taking place in them, not until it is too late for them to make a difference in their own life path.
"For as the song legends of all people have shared with the ones who would listen, they will continue to follow these false leaders until their time has ended. And when their time has ended, there will be a flash of awakening that will come to them, a flash of awakening that will show them what they have done and what has returned to them for their efforts.
"The Season of the Long Shadow is an acceleration of all processes used by the two-legs. There will also be acceleration for the way they will look to another or others for their directions and guidance. When one is not willing to do their own work, there will be a great desire to have another do it for them. The reasons will be many, but the major one is because they no longer feel in control of their emotions. And the stronger emotions will come to them, the more lost and out of control they will feel in their life path.
"As The Season of the Long Shadow is born into this domain, my brothers, all of these emotions they had experienced before will get stronger and stronger. And as they will grow in strength, many believe there will be no ending to their being with them. As we have shared with you previously, there is only one purpose for emotion to enter anyone's life path. And that is to remind them of a lesson they need to learn.
"For those still sleeping within the illusion, they will either fight or argue with them. And in both cases, emotion will prevail because who they are fighting, is themselves. When one will fight with themselves, there can only be one winner and one loser....it can only be them.
"During The Season of the Long Shadow, there will be many living with a great level of frustration that comes to them from having so many emotions they cannot get away from. In this time, there will be many who will call themselves Messenger, but in truth, they will not be what they will claim to be. For they have come to control these others who are living with these high levels of frustration. They have come to control them, not to assist them. And as it is with so many things that are to be found in the great illusion, many will not see this until it is too late for them to do anything about it.
"During this time, there will be many who will wear the false face of illusion over them. At first they will appear to you as those who understand all that you are going through, but they do not. For when they come to you, listen to those things they have to say and see if there is truth within them. You see, my brothers, when one will speak truth and understand it, you will not only see their truth in those things they have to share, but you will find yours as well. And there is not anything you will have to change or do to yourself in order to come to a place of understanding.
"However, when one says they are speaking truth to you, they are but repeating something that sounds good to them, because you will have to change many things about yourself in order to get to their place of their seeing, their place of seeing those things they are repeating to you. Whenever you are asked to change anything about yourself or the life path you have come to travel, there is no messenger of truth before you, there is only one who does not understand truth at all, and they will be speaking to you from a position of control, a position that will allow them to control you if you will do what they tell you to do.
"These are not the Messengers we have come to speak of, my brothers. They are the ones who continue to live in the great illusion of not seeing and would wish to do the same to all who would come to them. For the (true) Messengers will not ask you to change yourself, they only ask that you understand those things you are doing. The Messengers we are speaking of have passed through their long night and succeeded in exiting on the other side of the illusion. These Messengers will have see much of what they had in their life path fall away and have come to a place of understanding that had it not fallen away from them, there would not be any room for the new to have come to them, those new things that carried another part of their truth to them, truth that is applicable to all.
"These Messengers have come to know the light and the dark and will understand that both are from oneself. For when one sees who and what they are in truth, they see a light, this light that has always been within them. These Messengers will also know the dark and what it brings with it. For when they will see those who carry the dark with them, they will understand they are the ones who still have a great distance to travel, a great distance to go before they will be willing to listen to these truths.
"They will not look on those who travel in the dark as anything but another member of their own spirit family who has need of lesson, a great need to learn and later to understand those lessons they have surrounded themselves with. And they will not attempt to change them. For they hold the understanding that all things are at the right time and the right place of being. They walk away from them because they understand that for each moment they will spend on one who is not ready to listen, one moment is taken away from one who is. And this will be in the front of their thinking minds, my brothers. They do not turn away from these others for any other reason......and this is truth.
"These Messengers will be awakened during The Season of the Long Shadow and will be seen and felt in a much different way than any others during this time. They will not appear to be different on the outside, but what is felt from them will be different. They will be the ones who have allowed themselves to be. And this will bring disquieting feelings among those who have not yet awakened from their illusion.
"At first, they will feel love for them but this feeling will not last long. For as soon as they find so many of their lessons and emotions come over them from being near one of the Messengers, they will blame them for all that is not right and will come to hate them. For those who remain lost within their own sleep of illusion, they will continue to hate these Messengers because they believe all they are going through is the Messengers' fault and has nothing to do with themselves.
"You see, my brothers, The Messengers will be those who have understood that all things will be regardless of what you might want. They see that when one is trying to make something happen, they are only getting in their own way and will end up in the same place covered with bruises and scars. And this will be caused by their own efforts of trying to make something happen that is going to be anyway. Those who continue to try, will be seen as ones who are not willing to make any effort in doing their own work. And they will see the Messengers as weak and not possessing the strength and stamina they do. For if they did, they would surely see how much wrong there is in this earth and would try to change it. Those who would see the Messengers in this way, they will only see things in one way.....theirs. For to do something in any other way is to do it wrong and is bound to fail.
"The Messengers will also understand there is but one great gift and this greatest of gifts is one of presence, the presence of one who is within the One of all living life. For the Messengers understand that to give creates at least three takers and from this giving there will always be more takers than the giver can satisfy. So the giver will eventually become the thief who will rob from one who man only have a little and be left with nothing.
"So the Messengers will neither give nor will they take, but they will share and they will receive. For to share means there will not be any strings attached and to receive is to believe in one's self. And this is good. This then is the path to finding presence with oneself, my brothers and when you come close to any of the Messengers, you will feel a great many things come into your life path. For when you are in their presence, you will feel great peace as well as great uncertainty. The great peace will be from those things you have come to learn and understand. And the great uncertainty will come to you from those things that still need to be worked on by you.
"It is the presence from the Messengers that will awaken you to this, awaken you to see what is still needed to be done by you in order to learn, awaken within you the path you felt had been lost to you. When you will be in close location to any of the Messengers, you will find them walking their life path and teaching the truths that have been shared with them. You will not see any of them calling on others to change or follow them, for the Messengers ask that you follow yourself and not them. For this will not be the time for following another, not during this time of The Season of the Long Shadow.
"However, the Messengers understand there will be many who will travel close to them. And that is because their life path is close enough to theirs to allow for this. But they will remind them, before others are allowed to do such a thing, they will have to be willing to stand strong alone first. For to stand strong alone first will allow them to find their own truths and see their own path. When they have seen this, they can see if their path is close enough to the Messengers that they may travel close to them. For each path in this domain has its own distinct feature and those features will be in the form of lessons that are continually being learned by all life.
"The Messengers will not be interested in the numbers of people who will listen to those things they have to share. They will only be interested in staying focused on this path they have been given to travel while they are in this domain of the Earth Mother. Those who do not have an understanding for themselves will see this behavior of the Messengers as one that does not care for any one or anything but themselves. And those who have come to awaken themselves from their illusion will see this behavior from the Messengers as being truth, not only for them, but also for all life.
"These Messengers will be heard and felt for this path they have chosen to travel. But they will not be seen running, for they understand there is no place one can run to. It will be those who have not come as a Messenger who will do this, my brothers, those who call themselves by this name but do not understand it. They will be the ones calling on all life to change what they are doing in order to right all of the wrongs that have been done. It will be they who will hold everyone they speak to within this great illusion and within their control. And this control will come with the face of fear.
"The Messengers will solicit change in others, my brothers, but this change will come by them looking at themselves and finding their own face of truth. However, those who are not Messengers will cause change to come over others by telling them if they will not do as they say, they will surely pay for it. And this change they bring to them only comes through the face of fear, this fear they will hold over all until time for them is ended.
"These are the two kinds of Messengers who will surface during the Season of the Long Shadow. And as it is with all life and all domains, there is always free choice. So take this information we have been willing to share with all of you and know that it will be your choice to pick which path you will be willing to travel."
