“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
We have begun to understand on a deeper level what it means to be human and what it means to be human and incarnate on planet Earth at this time. We have a newfound respect and a great deal of compassion for all of you. We tell you this because we want you to have compassion for yourselves.
We want you to recognize that no matter how much compassion we feel for you and project out to you, it is so much better when you give it to yourselves. It is going to make your journeys so much easier if you are able to let yourselves off the hook. Instead of measuring your success, and instead of analyzing how far along you are as compared to how far along you would like to be, seek compassion for yourselves.
What is compassion? Compassion is understanding that the challenges that you face are enormous, that you are doing the best you can, and that you can offer unconditional love to yourselves and to others because you know that the journey you are all on is filled with disappointment and loss, failure and suffering. And if you can know these experiences yourself, and know that others are experiencing them as well, then you can extend that compassion inward and outward.
And, better still, you will be able to receive it. You will be able to receive the compassion that we offer you and that others do as well. Compassion doesn’t just mean weeping for the unfortunate experiences that you and others have had. Compassion is about finding strength in the sorrow. It is about finding the will to continue, and it is about allowing everything to be just as it is.
When you offer compassion to yourselves, you free yourselves of judgment. You give yourselves a break, and you are able to let go of any need to be anywhere other than where you currently are. And that is liberating. So with compassion comes freedom, and with freedom comes the ability to create something else, something new, something better, something you can celebrate with joy.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
