Meditation by Dorothy Maclean, Commentary by Freya Secrest
One of the things I love about reading Dorothy Macleans’s deva messages is that they allow me to participate in the fullness of the experiences they carry. For me the words create more than a mental image; they convey a quality of being which is deeply nourishing and instructive. In this way they help me to widen my own ability to embody the qualities of which they speak. When I move into the felt sense of a communication in this way, ideas such as "joy" or "grounding" become rooted in a physical, loving connection with my world and all are enriched.
Dorothy’s messages from the trees especially offer an experience of peace and balance that is so valuable to strengthen in our world at this time. The following two communications were recorded during a visit she made in 1972 to Attingham Park, an estate in Southern England. As do all her messages from the devic kingdom, they offer us an invitation to recognize our brotherhood on behalf of the planet. - Freya Secrest
Cedar of Lebanon- Peace is what we give you at the moment. You humans are all of a dither with new energies and we would counterbalance you. Peace and stability; you find that and then build. It is no use building on foundations that would crumble; it is no use building on wonderful new ideas unless you can ground them. We do not mean that they should be grounded with old ideas, but on the inner peace and stability which is deep within. As you make some action without, there should be more action within - in fact, the within should come first and that is just the trouble with so many humans. See how our enormous limbs are balanced in peace. When the storm comes, we go with it and keep the balance.
The mind world of humanity is bursting its seams. Let it burst. Many ideas will be bubbles that will come to nothingness. That does not matter; keep your roots in peace, and experiment. Experiment until you find that which comes through perfectly. As a baby learns to walk, learn to walk in your new world with a conscious link to peace within. This is our particular message now.
Cedar of Lebanon - Many lives come and go, and still our power goes up to the sky and down to the earth. This is the power of the Almighty of which we are caretakers in this moment of time. Our serene strength stabilizes and makes upright whatever comes to us in openness, for we are living matter, fashioned from the elements, and we are kin to all life. You and I are blood brothers, made from the same substance, each fulfilling our destiny on this planet. I contain you in my towering strength, and you contain me in your towering aspiration.
You humans are despoiling our power on earth, interfering with our destiny. In the process you are learning of your own destiny. We hope that proudly you may take it on, and enrich the earth as never before. You can enrich it with your enlightened love.
We can love together and be free together, for although we are tree and human, we are much more. We are representatives of divinity, and we never end through the endless ages. We go on from strength to strength, each in our own way. Let us be one in that universal Power of Life.
