I’ve long understood that, while most of us arrive here with the task of self-evolution, there are higher-level souls who occasionally arrive as ‘Messengers’, souls who have already done the Work in past lives and are sent to accomplish great tasks and help the rest of us. They might be recognized by their extraordinary wisdom (too many Teachers to name), by events in their lives that seem unfathomable (a young George Washington riding between lines of relentless explosive rifle fire and emerging unscathed), or perhaps by their uncanny ability to know when their own death is at hand (Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane).
Well, I don’t know what will happen now. We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop.
