Gandhi: How Not to Fight
Updated: Nov 11, 2019
So my friend, Anita, a gifted channeler (on Etsy here) called me and said Gandhi wanted to talk to me.
Uh huh. Sure. I’ll get right on it.
No, really, she said, he’s right here.
Now she’s good, I thought, but not that good. But since it was Anita I asked, and lo and behold, yep, it was Gandhi. But he didn’t want to talk to me, he wanted to talk to Anita. Then, the next day, CNN announced that it was the 150th anniversary of Gandhi’s birth which certainly shivered my timbers. Here is what he had to say and maybe not just for Anita.
Ann: Anita said you wanted to talk to me.
Gandhi: Yes. I am humbly appreciative of your willingness to offer your mind and spirit to receive me. I actually wanted to speak with Anita and wonder if you would mind my using your channel to do so?
A: Not at all, I would be honored.
G: Thank you. Anita, you have correctly heard and interpreted what Jesus gave you about his lack of control in the temple, and he has come to you with this for a reason. I want you to know that he came to me also with this great message which I tried to put into practice in my own life and work. He was correct that his anger created ripples and ramifications that have spread down the ages leading one sect to take up arms against the other, brother against brother, husband against wife. For, it was reasoned, if our Lord could so act then surely our own baser instincts should not be denied when employed in the cause of righteousness.
I am here to say that if there is violence, the cause is not righteous.
In your own life just at present you have been subject to unwarranted attacks coming at you from out of the blue with no reason that you can discern. Without going into the whys and wherefores of these attacks, I would like to say that, if you receive these attacks with a quiet heart and unrelenting spirit, you will find a resolution that fulfills your life purpose. Yours is not the path of the accuser, not the path of the avenger.
Nor, however, are you intended to sit idly by and receive without response unjustified abuse. Yours is to claim the steady spirit, the quiet certainty of your own nature, and step out into the light as the woman you have always been in this life and heretofore. This is your spirit self. You have seen her face, you have embodied her form, and you know who you are. Standing in your space, grounded in your being, you will be able to find the quiet strength to continue on your way. I do not say it will be easy, but you will find that it is the only way that allows you to be who you are in union with the Holy Spirit.
This is the middle way, the way of steady compassion and unyielding commitment to the love of truth and wholeness. Both are needed, compassion and truth. Anger and violence cannot stand against them, for they derive their power from the unlimited and unconditional love of the Creator for all creations.
