But remember what brought you here.

You will be Told exactly what to do."

Subject: Is this it?

     I'm curious about your thoughts...

     I feel guiltily excited that this could be the 'something big' that needs to happen to shake us up!  

     And I feel ready even though I don't know what for, but I hope that I step up when the time comes. 

     I always said unfortunately a tragedy would have to occur before the human race woke up.  It is unfortunate that there are many who are using these events to exploit others. In many cases this is further separating the human race. Perhaps that is a good thing. 

     If you listen to some news reports, people who are being told to stay home do not know how to cope with that. The external activity has lulled the human being to sleep. They are desperate and deeply afraid.  That is the price mankind pays for his denial of God and his own Self. 

     Contact with Higher Intelligence will be the only safety. He knows all you need and will be provided.

     All the study, past lessons, tests were preparation for entry into higher consciousness. Do not be afraid or encourage it in others. But remember what brought you here. You will be Told exactly what to do. Stay in the present of the Spirit, one day at a time.

     Thank you, David. I am listening.  

     What I mean is I periodically view CNN stories and find a lot of crazy things people are doing.  I did not mean you should listen more to the news....obviously I am not an advocate for following the media of propaganda but everything is a source for Spirit to use to transmit something to us. 

     For example, the U.S. government is ordering all banks to halt foreclosures.  This is good news for me as I am late with cabin payment and they threatened to initiate foreclosure if I did not keep pmts. current. 

     I understand. I meant I am listening within and seeing how things are working for the greater good. 

     Anya’ brother sent this to her from his Astrologist friend.  Interesting that it uses terminology from the Course: 

     “The human lower-ego/self simply cannot believe that 'something' is far beyond itself and cannot be 'controlled' by it (even though it is aware that it is 'out of control' much of the time). The ego believes that 'things will return to normal' (? - what is normal?) after a little bit of this and that. In the case of this global pandemic crisis the ego believes that it will last for a few more -+ weeks and then 'all will be well again' (What is well again?). Well, we have to inform you that this pandemic is going to last the whole year and is going to expand and expand and hit 60% of the global population. Things are going to get worse and worse and more and more critical. 

     “The problem with the lower ego (not Higher Ego or Soul) is that it 'believes' that the way humans are living is 'normal and alright' (re: all facets of living on earth). It might surprise people to know that the opposite is the case. To live as Souls is very, very different to living as ego's. Since the Divine Plan for humanity is for humans to live as Souls (re: all facets of life) and humans are living as ego's and this cannot go on (because if it does the human race will self-destruct) the Coronavirus is 'here' to radically Change this ego-situation. And it will remain here until it has completed its Work. 

     “The ego simply cannot 'believe' this - how can this be happening to the human race? Surely all things will return to 'normal' soon. But 'normal is abnormal' to the Soul. NORMAL to the Soul/Higher Ego is living as Humans are Really Supposed to Live. The Coronavirus has come to change this situation (with the soon-to-come economic meltdown) and will not be going away.

     “Governments are going to try and deceive the people into 'believing' that the virus will be 'contained' and vanish in a few weeks or one or two months. The virus will not and cannot be 'contained', and will be spreading all over the planet.

     “We are now in the 3rd World War, and this War is not being fought between nations (Thank God) but between the Soul and ego of humanity and every human. This is the true meaning of Holy War (or the Higher Jihad) and we are all now in this War. No one can escape this Inner War. No nation/religion/race/grouping or gender/etc. can escape it; be it that many people (involved with religion/etc) imagine they can. 

     “There is no escape from this Ultimate (and Mystical) Holy War. It is therefore best to face this situation and understand it and enter consciously and wisely into it.

      *Very soon all 'crowds' (of all and every nature) will be banned (as they now are in Italy, Spain, USA, etc, etc) and people will be forced to live in very small 'family groups' (not simply 'blood families' but also 'soul families').

     “Best to start to Meditate on a daily basis (twice daily) because Meditation will become essential in this regard, as Meditation (= the medium to the Source) will be the only Way to establish Relationship with the Higher Ego and gain Real Guidance and Protection. In fact this is one of the major reasons for the virus crisis (cri-sis from Chinese = danger-major opportunity) - to force humanity back to its Source/God/Soul (which gives it LIFE and Consciousness) and which humanity has forgotten.

     “As Master Shams (Sufi Master and Master Teacher of Rumi) says, 'Do not grieve if the Darkness is Long. After the Darkness the Brightness will be Long'. And as Rumi said/says, 'Light and Shadow are the Dance of LOVE'. We are now in the Great Time of Great MYSTERY.

     “This is why the ego cannot 'believe' what is happening - it is Way Beyond the ego. Humanity has now entered Forced Soul Times. Best to accept this and move with the Mystery Times. It might be the End of Days but what this really means is the End of ego times, and the Beginning of Soul Times.

     "Send this on to your Networks - if you want to. It might save people a Lot of Pain and Suffering." 

     Wow, living as Souls. Imagine that World. Thank you for sharing this message with me.

     And so this morning I ask the Universe to teach me what it means to live as a Soul as I am fully able...

     The Tarot revealed this to me in the "LONG TERM FUTURE" card in my last reading. That card was THE TOWER.




From: Prairie Spirit - Brenda

    Thank you, what is the message of the Tower card? 

     You can look it up on various sites, but essentially it is the end of the ego's world of false security.

From: Prairie Spirit - Brenda
     "The Tower tarot card illustrates that neither the physical nor emotional structures we build are stable or permanent, but rather, can be destroyed suddenly, bringing with it the changes we attempted to avoid."

     The Creator is asking us to wake up and embrace the Part of Its Spirit that is Who and What we Are truly. You will not find it in anything external or in another person, man, special relationship.

     You were Given the Gift of Recovery. As was I. As was Michael. He snubbed his nose at it and the rest of them snub their nose at me. Now look at the mess he and they have made of their lives, clinging desperately to "family".

      Now you are Asked to give the Gift to others. Spirits will Direct you how to do that. It is the only thing that will keep you alive inside.

     That should be more important to you than your own life. 


From: Susan Thomas

     David, I have read The Tower - The Long Term Future several times throughout the day and every time I read it I get a different understanding about it. This is so bizarre.

    I have also passed this on to some friends of mine and I keep hearing your voice echoing in my mind, "Susan get back to your true Self. You have a Gift to give to people. Get back to you true Self, Susan."

     Thank you, David, for this beautiful lesson today. Thank you. I love you. Peace. 


      If you follow Spirit and fulfill your part you will not feel afraid or lost. You will feel Loved and responsible in giving something greater than yourself to the world.

     Creator says,

"Carry on, My wayward Son,

There'll be peace when you are done,

Lay your weary head to rest,

Don't you cry no more."




  Carry on Wayward Son 



Carry on my wayward son 

For there'll be peace when you are done 

Lay your weary head to rest 

Don't you cry no more


Once I rose above the noise and confusion 

Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion 

I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high

Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man 

Though my mind could think I still was a mad man 

I hear the Voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear Them say


Carry on my wayward son 

For there'll be peace when you are done 

Lay your weary head to rest 

Don't you cry no more


Masquerading as a man with a reason 

My charade is the event of the season 

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know

 On a stormy sea of moving emotion 

Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean 

I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say


Carry on my wayward son 

For there'll be peace when you are done 

Lay your weary head to rest 

Don't you cry no more


Carry on, you will always remember 

Carry on, nothing equals the splendor 

Now your life's no longer empty 

Surely heaven waits for you


Carry on my wayward son 

For there'll be peace when you are done 

Lay your weary head to rest 

Don't you cry no more 









 I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone

All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity


Dust in the wind

All they are is dust in the wind


Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea

All we do, crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see


Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind


Oh, ho, ho

Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky

It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy


Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind

Dust in the wind

Everything is dust in the wind

Everything is dust in the wind

The wind
