“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
We have observed that the human race as a whole is consumed with a desire to excel at something. You all want to be good, to be deemed good, and to have praise lavished upon you for the good that you do and the good that you are. We love watching you excel at something, and it is particularly gratifying for us to see you excel at something that you are doing for the pure enjoyment of it.
There is nothing more satisfying for you than getting lost in an activity that you simply cannot pull yourselves away from because you are so engrossed in it and captivated by it. Once you take that and use it in order to get praise from another, that’s where things begin to fall apart. It is much more important that you be completely engaged in an activity than it is for your actions to get the notice and the acknowledgement of any other.
There is a phrase that you have on your world that says, ‘so and so sold out.’ And that phrase refers to losing one’s authenticity in order to appease the audience or to get a bigger paycheck by appealing to a bigger audience. And we understand why this happens. We understand the desire to be acknowledged and paid for what you do, but we also know that you will never have the same experience of joy in doing what you do if you are doing it as a means to an end.
Therefore, we recommend finding something in your life that you can do for the sake of doing it and never letting go of that innocence and the purity of that experience. We want that for all of you because we see how much you light up when you are engaged in such an activity, when you do for the sake of doing, and you receive joy from the act of participating in that which is calling you.
If you are engaged in such an activity, you will be in the flow and you can trust that the energy of this world will support you. And you can stay true to yourself and stay true to your expression through the activity, without ever comprising yourself or what you do. And that is what we wish for all of you.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
