I was actually in Italy when the Pope got
sick. Then after a few weeks when I was
again on the road in the USA, I was watching CNN when the message came
that he had passed.
This is a New Age web site, and I am the channeller responsible for it
all. I am not Catholic (of course) and
our teachings do not adhere to any of the doctrine of organized religion.
However, the man who gave 26 years of his life to finding his own divinity
and promoting peace on earth is going to get a lot of attention, meditation,
thanks, and admiration from me. We are not religion bashers here, and
honor all those who seek God in their own way.
There is only one of these men (Women, some day) who guide over one billion
people in their spirituality. We always hope that "our" Pope
will be a good one, and not necessarily carbon copies of some of the last
ones, who were not really interested in anything but the church. But Pope
John Paul II, known as "His Holiness," and also "The Holy
See" was interested in the whole package - his own spirituality,
guiding his church-state, and also his quest to bring peace on earth.
He didn't mince words, either. Much to the consternation of some of those
high-positioned churchmen around him in the 80's, he called for the end
to Communism. He advised President Reagan to go against the advice of
his own presidential advisors and trust Mikhail Gorbachev. That's exactly
what Reagan did, and the beginning of some of today's much needed nuclear
treaties was the result.
Gorbachev said, "The biggest mistake Communism made was to allow
the Pope to visit Poland." This set up an energy that, combined with
all the other things John Paul did, helped to bring down the Soviet Union
in the late 80's.
No shots were fired, and the "Evil Empire" came down with the
help of the consciousness of its people, and many great leaders, almost
all of whom were influenced to some degree by the leader of the smallest
county in the world, the Vatican. John Paul was the man who dared to tell
Catholics everywhere (from his perch on his balcony overlooking St. Peter's
square) that both Heaven and Hell were not "places" at all,
but were states of being that were personal, and reflected a person's
own relationship with God!
Pope - Heaven and Hell http://smithbrad.nventure.com/pope.htm
This was quickly grabbed by the church and massaged to try to explain
how it could continue to coordinate with basic church doctrine. Much has
been written about it with things like, "What the Pope really meant
was." But what he meant was what he said. God is in you, and the
closer you draw to this, the more your energy will be the description
of Heaven itself. There are plenty of places to read this on the Internet.
Our Pope met with the Jews and knelt in prayer with them. He was the only
one to ever do this. He apologized to them for the position of the Vatican
during the Holocaust, and ask their forgiveness. He publicly ask the forgiveness
of the family of Galileo for what happened long ago, then told the earth
that even the Crusades were not correct (gasp!) something like saying,
"The church was wrong on all these issues." It was. He knew
it, and wanted to ask forgiveness. This was a trait of Christ that he
emulated and wished to show clearly to those who followed him now as the
head of the church.
In these last years he was concerned with the United States, too again,
never being shy about what he felt was appropriate or inappropriate energy,
comparing everything to his divine model, and the master he followed and
John Paul knew he was dying. He had recovered in the past from many things,
including almost dying from an assassin's bullet. But he knew he was leaving
us. He asked not to be taken back to the hospital, surrounded himself
with his Polish friends and slowly his body shut down. Those closest to
him said that his last words were, "AMEN."
Here was a Human Being who followed his truth, looked for the divine in
everything, and made a difference on planet earth. This is what we teach.
None of us will ever be the Pope, but all of us can create Heaven in our
lives just as he said. We may not be great figures that are seen by millions,
but each of us has God in us to the extent that millions can share this
Before he became the Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Christ, Successor of St.
Peter, Prince of Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Patriarch
of the West, Primate of Italy, or Sovereign of Vatican City, Pope John
Paul II was Karol Jozef Wojtyla ordinary Human person with a light he
wanted to shine. Kryon tells us that this is who we are too. We carry
a combined light that can bring peace on earth, something that Karol showed
us can be done even by one man!
I think right now Karol (the Pope) is not in a place called Heaven (according
to his own words). He is instead in a consciousness called love something
that is around us all. And if he could speak to us right now, I believe
he would say, "I did my part now do yours beings of the light. Amen."
Congratulations Karol, on your most wonderful adventure on this planet!
