Forgiveness Respect Compassion

A Mass Awakening Arising

“The vibrations and energies you are feeling right now is a mass awakening.
Many of those who were teetering on the edge between being asleep and awake
have gently tipped into being fully awake.

Old schoolers are doing their best to maintain the centuries old status quo
while others are directing their attention toward the New Way.

Rather than arguing your point, please realize and embrace the fact
that each one of you will move through this the best way you know.

And, regardless of where you are in the process or how challenging this may be,
you are being loved and supported by The Universe.”

Awaking In Another World

We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.

Suddenly, Disney is out of magic. Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn’t stand up anymore,

the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.

Hugs and kisses suddenly become weapons,
and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.
Suddenly, you realize that power, beauty & money are worthless,
and can’t get you the oxygen you’re fighting for.The world continues its life and it is beautiful.
It only puts humans in cages. I think it’s sending us a message“You are not necessary.
The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine.

When you come back, remember that you are my guests.
Not my masters.”
—  Dr Druhv Cahuhan


Global Social Transformation



Yes there is fear.
Yes there is isolation.
Yes there is panic buying.
Yes there is sickness.
Yes there is even death.

They say that in Wuhan after so many years of noise
You can hear the birds again.
They say that after just a few weeks of quiet
The sky is no longer thick with fumes
But blue and grey and clear.

They say that in the streets of Assisi
People are singing to each other
across the empty squares,
keeping their windows open
so that those who are alone
may hear the sounds of family around them.

They say that a hotel in the West of Ireland
Is offering free meals and delivery to the housebound.

Today a young woman I know
is busy spreading fliers with her number
through the neighborhood
So that the elders may have someone to call on.

Today Churches, Synagogues, Mosques and Temples
are preparing to welcome
and shelter the homeless, the sick, the weary.

All over the world people are slowing down and reflecting
All over the world people are looking at their neighbors in a new way
All over the world people are waking up to a new reality

To how big we really are.
To how little control we really have.
To what really matters.
To Love.

So we pray and we remember that
Yes there is fear.
But there does not have to be hate.

Yes there is isolation.
But there does not have to be loneliness.

Yes there is panic buying.
But there does not have to be meanness.

Yes there is sickness.
But there does not have to be disease of the soul.

Yes there is even death.
But there can always be a rebirth of Love.

Wake to the choices you make as to how to live now.
Today, breathe.

Listen, behind the factory noises of your panic
The birds are singing again
The sky is clearing,
Spring is coming,
And we are always encompassed by Love.

Open the windows of your soul
And though you may not be able
to touch across the empty square,

— Fr. Richard Hendrick, OFM, 13 March 2020

Emmanuel Dagher, Global Social Transfromation


What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider the Sabbath —
the most sacred of times?

Cease from travel.
Cease from buying and selling.
Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different that it is.

Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit to life.
Center down.

And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.
Know that we are connected
in ways that are terrifying and beautiful.
(You could hardly deny it now.)

Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has come clear.)

Do not reach out your hands.
Reach out your heart.
Reach out your words.

Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.

Promise this world your love —
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health
so long as we all shall live.

Anchored in the Ground of Being

As many of you who’ve followed my thinking know, I’ve long been concerned with the unforeseen consequences of exponential growth, and the various crises it could lead to. And here we are in the middle of one – or rather the early days of one. We are witnessing an exponential escalation such that no one knows where we will be six months from now, or even one month from now.

Along with the various preparations and precautions we may be taking, we also need to look at how best to prepare ourselves inwardly as the winds of change ramp up into a storm of change.

Trees provide a good lesson. If a tree is to withstand a storm it must be flexible, able to bend with the winds. And it must have strong roots and be stably anchored in the ground.

The same is true for us. We’ve never been in this situation before, and have no past experience to go on. We’ll need to be flexible. to let go of outdated thinking, habitual reactions and assumptions, find the inner freedom to see things with fresh eyes, and respond creatively to the challenges that face us.

Second, like the trees, we will need greater inner stability. We need to be anchored in the ground of our own being, so that when the unexpected suddenly arrives, we can remain relatively cool, calm, and collected; not thrown into fear and panic.

Now, more than ever, our spiritual practice becomes important. We need to take time to step back from our worries and concerns and draw on the clarity and wisdom that lie in the stillness of our being. For me, having to stay home has had a hidden blessing in that I can be more in retreat mode, with less distractions, and from that has come a greater clarity of what is important.

A third factor that helps trees withstand a storm is being in a forest of trees. They soften the wind for each other. Strong community will be more important than ever; yet at a time when many of us can no longer meet in person. But we can still connect in other ways. I have been making video calls with friends and groups much more than I would have done otherwise, and actually found relationships deepening.

And a reminder to exercise and keep fit as much as you can.

Wishing you all well

“Are our Thoughts Lending Towards Solutions or Adding to the Problem?”
Giving Thanks to Abraham here, for the reminder

Abraham wants you to know….

The bad news is — what humans see as “what is” is extremely out of balance.

The good news is, this tremendous asking from humans around
the planet has created an equivalent vibrational wave of solutions.

When you also remember that your Inner Beings, and all that is Source Energy are focused upon the solutions, and when you remember that the vibrational version of solutions is available to anyone who aligns and taps in, then you are able to understand that all around your planet, people who are focused upon solutions and are therefore vibrationally aligned to solutions — (doctors, scientists, inventors, producers, creators) — these people are ready to be ready to be ready to receive viable ideas,
which already have enormous Nonphysical momentum.

You have only one thing to consider in your now moment, and the next, and the next.
“Am I with this thought, adding momentum to the solution or the problem?”

We want you to remember that the most important solution you are seeking, is the relief of your fear, which will in time transform into Energy flowing through you that will enliven you and refresh you and restore you to more than you have ever been before.

There is great love here for you
and absolute certainty that solutions are flowing
and you are okay.

~Abraham (Esther Hicks)

A Letter from the Virus #LISTEN
The following poem is on this video

An Imagined Letter from Covid-19 to Humans

Stop. Just stop.
It is no longer a request. It is a mandate.
We will help you 

We will bring the supersonic, high spped merry-go-round to a halt
We will stop
the planes
the trains
the schools
the malls
the meetings

the frenetic, furied rush of illusions and “obligations”
that keep you from hearing our single and shared beating heart,
the way we breathe together, in unison.

Our obligation is to each other,
As it has always been, even it, even though, you have forgotten.

We will interrupt this broadcast,
the endless cacophonous broadcast of divisions and distractions,
to bring you this long-breaking news:
We are not well.

We will interrupt this broadcast,
the endless cacophonous broadcast of divisions and distractions,
to bring you this long-breaking news:
We are not well.

None of us; all of us are suffering.
Last year, the firestorms that scorched the lungs of the earth
did not give you pause.
Not the typhoons in Africa, China, Japan.
Nor the fevered climates in Japan and India.

You have not been listening.

It is hard to listen when you are so busy all the time,
hustling to uphold the comforts and conveniences
that scaffold your lives.
But the foundation is giving way,
buckling under the weight of your needs and desires.
We will help you.

We will bring the firestorms to your body
We will bring the fever to your body
We will bring the burning, searing, and flooding to your lungs
that you might heart:
We are not well.

Despite what you might think or feel, we are not the enemy.
We are Messenger.  We are Ally.
We are a balancing force.

We are asking you:
To stop, to be still, to listen;
To move beyond your individual concerns and consider the concerns of all;

To be with your ignorance, to find your humility,
to relinquish your thinking minds and travel deep
into the mind of the heart;

To look up into the sky, streaked with fewer planes,
and see it, to notice its condition:
clear, smoky, smoggy, rainy?

How much do you need it to be healthy
so that you may also be healthy?

To look at a tree, and see it, to notice its condition:
how does its health contribute to the health of the sky,
to the air you need to be healthy?
To visit a river, and see it, to notice its condition;
clear, clean, murky, polluted?

How much do you need it to be healthy
so that you may also be healthy?
How does its health contribute to the health of the tree,
who contributes to the health of the sky,
so that you may also be healthy?

Many are afraid now.

Do not demonize your fear, and also, do not let it rule you.
Instead, let it speak to you –
in your stillness, listen for its wisdom.

What might it be telling you about what is at work, at issue, at risk,
beyond the threats of personal inconvenience and illness?

As the health of a tree, a river, the sky tells you about quality of your own health,
what might the quality of your health tell you about the health of the
rivers, the trees, the sky, and all of us who share this planet with you?


Notice if you are resisting.
Notice what you are resisting.
Ask why.

Stop. Just stop.
Be still.

Ask us what we might teach you about illness and healing,
about what might be required so that all may be well.

We will help you, if you listen.

Scott Grace in Conversation with the Coronavirus

“The mark of a person’s ignorance can be measured by their belief in injustice and tragedy.  What a caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.” — Richard Bach, from the book Illusions.

I have the privilege and honor to interview the Coronavirus.  I am aware that this interview might trigger some anger in you.  Werner Erhard was quoted as saying, “The truth shall set you free, but first it will piss you off.”  So, with that being re-said, here is my interview with the Coronavirus.

Scott:  Well, my first question is why me?
Why did you come and why are you willing to be interviewed by me?

The Coronavirus:  Because of your willingness to see us as not as a bad thing, but as a doorway to healing and awakening.  Anyone who entertains the willingness to see us as a blessing, well, then, that opens the door to the truth, the doorway that might first piss you off, but then shall set you free. 

Scott:  Well, then, what do you feel are the most important words humanity can hear from you at this time.

The Coronavirus:  Our fellow angels, we are not here to bring fear or darkness in any of you, although we realize that that might be your first reaction.  We are here to help you awaken.  We are to hear to help humankind heal from fear, deceit and darkness that already exists below the surface.  

We ask that you take some time to feel your fear response, since you can only feel what you are willing to heal.  As you feel, so you heal.  

Scott:  Why is it so hard for us humans to feel? 

The Coronavirus:  Because you have been trained  to go straight up to your heads to tell and believe the story fear plays in your head.  And that story is that you are doomed.  Our response to that is you are not doomed.  You are set free by your willingness to feel your fears.  Let us take your biggest fear as an example.  For many of you your biggest fear is your fear of death.  Another name for this fear is your fear of losing control.  Death is the ultimate loss of control. 

And, yet, as our friend and fellow angel Emmanuel said in his first book, “Death is like taking off a tight shoe.”

Another thing about death that humans find hard to believe is that nobody dies without their consent, without asking on a deep level, a soul level, for release from their physical experience.  Everyone who dies has been asking to be freed from their physical vessels.  Your not being aware of this is living testimony of how unaware you are of your eternal souls.  And we understand that being presented with such a statement can piss you off.

We would ask that you meditate on the fact that you are an ageless soul in a human vehicle, and that as a soul, you are  never a victim.  Never ever.  That is why we, the Coronavirus, are an angel.  We are here to free a bunch of you from your human vehicles.  Because you have been asking to be released.  Not necessarily from your bodies, but from your fear.

We are also here to shake you up, because you have been asking to be awakened.  Alas, shock is the only way many of you will accept an awakening.  Shock is your first reaction to what we would call being awakened to the soul level of existence.

Scott:  Why do your words seem so harsh to me, like you are seeking to piss me off?

The Coronavirus:  Because you have been taught, programmed on a deeply personal level, to believe you are bodies, vulnerable to germs and viruses, to bullets and malignancies that scare you.  When you identify with yourself as a body, it’s as if you put on a spacesuit that helps you acclimate to being out in space, but then you become lost in space when you begin to identify with your spacesuits.  Look at your words:  I am worried. I am angry.  I am dying.  You do not such things.  You have been taught to identify with your spacesuits.  What a meditation practice does is to reactivate your memory of self as a soul.  And what you might find difficult to imagine is an angel you as the Coronavirus has come here to pry your awareness free from yourself as a body and remember yourself as an angel, just like us.

And the way to activate your memory as an angel as de-activate your memory of being simply a body is to love each other.

Think of yourself as a cassette recorder that has been stuck on Fast Forward.  You have just been forced to be in the Pause position against the will of your personality.  Your soul does not mind pausing.  But your ego hates it.  For your ego to pause and reflect is a very hard thing.  And that is what we as Corona are asking you to do.  And we are not just asking, we are demanding.  You do not have choice.  You must pause.

Scott:  But it seems like society is demanding us to isolate, to be afraid.  How can we remember to be loving in times that tend to be so fearful?

Coronavirus:  By remembering that there are folks that are always more fearful than you are, and to reach out to help them.  Send cards, emails, flowers, FaceTime and telephone those you love and tell them you love them, that you care, and then listen to what they are going through.  Let them know you are there for them, by listening to their fears.  No fixing or suggestions to make their fears go away.  Just listen.  It’s so healing.

Know that while our culture might be asking your body to isolate, your souls are free to reach out to love and care for each other.  When you do this love thing, you start to identify with the freedom of your souls, instead of the isolation and separation of your bodies.  And then you start to understand that the Coronavirus is not here to isolate you, but to join you with other souls.

We are also here to connect countries, to replace competition with joining.  Countries are being asked to share resources and overcome a shared challenge.  Countries are being asked to end adolescence and to grow up. 

All of this is exciting stuff, and while not all of you are up for this challenge, most of you will be. 

Scott:  It seems like this interview is coming to an end.  Any closing words?

Coronavirus:  This is not an end, but a true beginning.  What the fearful caterpillar self calls the end of a world, the evolved soul calls a butterfly.  Be a voice for humanity’s evolution.  Everything is going to be perfectly OK.  More than OK.  Have fun with these changes.  They are not here to hurt, but to liberate you.  All is well.
