Pat on the Back
Keller is a person whom we all hold in high regard,
almost in awe, for what she was able to accomplish
despite the fact she lost the use of her eyes and ears
when she was a baby, which in turn, inhibited the
development of speech and ability to communicate. Sometimes
I wonder what it must have been like for her to have
been brought into a world that was completely dark and
she was in her bubble of darkness, knowing and sensing
there were things going on around her, but not able to
make a connection about what it was.
She was touched and kissed and held and cuddled
and fed and clothed.
She smelled, she touched, she walked, she slept.
But she must have wondered what was going on. Who
am I? What is this all about?
We've read and seen accounts of her life that she
was angry and furious and lashed out at those who tried
to help her. Then
somehow, with the love and patience from her God-given
tutor, Anne Sullivan, there was a breakthrough in her
The door had opened for her.
Once that had happened, other doors opened in
rapid succession. By
the time of her death, at the age of 88, she was a woman
of the world with many accomplishments to her name.
reason why I think of Helen Keller is because I can
relate to her. Here
we are, beautiful light-filled creatures, borne into
this density called planet Earth.
As we sit in our bubble of darkness, we wonder
the same things. Who are we?
Where did we come from?
What are we doing here?
are courageous souls who chose to come here knowing that
once we came into this atmosphere, once we were born, we
would forget the gloriousness of who we are. In
essence, we had to wipe our memory slate clean. Just
think of it. Metaphorically,
it is as though we have been brought into the world in
the way that Helen Keller was - deaf, dumb and blind --
and perhaps with our arms and legs bound too.
Do you realize that on the other side of that
veil, that veil of illusion, we are accomplished
have developed and grown through many, many lifetimes to
become highly evolved spiritual beings. Yet, we chose to
come here again, to consciously agree to forget, to go
through the veil of forgetfulness, so that we could be
here for this most magnificent time on Mother Earth, to
serve as Mother Gaia's midwife in this birthing process
to the New Golden Age.
knew were needed, so we agreed.
For many of us, we were born of very humble
like I, were born into poverty and abuse. Throughout my
life, I have aspired for greatness, yet never seemed to
achieve it in the public eye. I
used to wonder if maybe I was not living up to my
potential since I had not become famous.
But now I realize that all of my choices were the
best for me on my path and it was actually my choice to
stay out of the limelight.
If I had been more prominent during my earlier
years, I probably would not still be here.
I most likely would have succumbed to an early
was for spiritual survival that I stayed under the radar
screen, because that is where I needed to be to do the
work I chose to do.
this point in my life, I am awakening and prodding that
veil of illusion, peeking through it to see who I am on
the other side. I
know I go over there during the dream time, I just don't
is that magnificent being over there?
How can I communicate with her?
What is she telling me?
What are all these signs, what do they mean?
Just open the door, just a little bit.
Remember how Helen Keller did it.
You chose to be in this bubble of darkness. Now
that you know that, you've opened a big door.
Just keep opening them, one after the other.
bring this up because as I have grown spiritually over
these past few years, I sometimes look at myself and
think I am somehow deficient in my spiritual awareness.
Of course that is the ego stepping doing its job
of creating illusions and obstacles to my spiritual

One of the cardinal rules of the game is that one
comes into it in a state of ignorance, of not knowing
who they are, of not knowing that one is a Child of God.
That in and of itself is a very empowering piece
of information for me.
I am not deficient, I am doing and being exactly
what I am supposed to do and be and this is in
accordance with the plan which I developed with my
you imagine developing an entire set of blueprints for a
grandiose building, and then having the blueprints taken
away from you, and going into amnesia so you don't
remember you ever drew up the blueprints, and then being
given the task of designing and constructing that
that's what we are doing!
So give yourselves a huge pat on the back because
whatever it is that you've accomplished, whether it just
be that you are still alive and walking on this planet
and are in some stage of awakening to your spiritual
reality -- you've done a magnificent job!
Keep up the good work!
