A COP26 message from the subtle realms, via David Spangler

We share a request from a subtle being for a Meditation for Humanity during COP26 in Glasgow, shared with Findhorn Fellow David Spangler, of the Lorian Association.
On Monday morning, November 1, 2021, I had a request from one of my subtle colleagues, just before I was about to give a lecture to an online class I am teaching. I said I would pass it on. The following is a transcript of that part of my talk in which I did pass on my subtle colleague’s request:
As you know, many of the world leaders are gathering right now in Glasgow, Scotland for a climate summit. That being that I call the Angel of Humanity, or the Spirit of Humanity, the collective soul of Humanity, is overlighting this summit. The request that has been asked of me to pass on is for you to take time to attune not to the summit, per se, but to the spirit of creative humanity. This is very important that you’re not attuning to suffering humanity, to humanity that’s caused these environmental difficulties, to humanity that’s the worst side of our nature; you’re attuning to the soul of humanity that holds all the possibilities and the creative potentials and the vision that can shape a positive future.

There’s a wisdom in our deep collective knowledge of how to move through these things.

Humanity has been through this before, this is not the first big crisis of a civilizational nature that humanity has experienced. There’s a wisdom in our deep collective knowledge of how to move through these things and how to do so kind of the way a snake sheds its skin; there are things that will be left behind, that we have to get rid of so that something new can emerge and we have the flexibility and the freedom to grow and to develop new characteristics and capacities. Gaia is growing and we need to grow with it.

There is this wisdom in the soul of humanity that says okay, this is a stage, we’ve been through these stages before. There’s going to be loss, there’s going to be gain, but at the heart of it is this sacred Light of our species that has a planetary task, that has a relationship to Gaia that is one of service and it is seeking to develop and evolve its own sacredness, its own unique way of giving life and expression to its sacred potentials. This is a multi-generational (multi-millennial, if you wish) undertaking.

At a collective level, in the soul of humanity, there is this sense of confidence, this sense of creativity, a sense of joy and of light and of knowing the service that we are about.

I remember when I started my work in 1965, John [my first subtle colleague and mentor] said to me, “David, you will not see the fruits of what you’re doing in your lifetime.” This is a generational thing. We have to think in the long term. We have to think over hundreds of years, not 10 or 20 years.
So. There’s held in this spirit of humanity, this sense of the wholeness and the Light of what’s evolving even if the fullness of it doesn’t become manifest in anything like our lifetimes or even in the next two or three lifetimes. I don’t know how long it would take. But at a collective level, we do know and at a collective level, in the soul of humanity, there is this sense of confidence, this sense of creativity, a sense of joy and of light and of knowing the service that we are about.
That’s what we’re tuning into. That’s the spirit of humanity we want to hold as it overlights this conference. In overlighting this conference, because so much attention of the world is being placed on it, and also because of the sense of responsibility I think that many of these world leaders hold as they begin to realize the gravity of the situation, links are formed between this conference and the people in it and the rest of humanity. And it’s those links that are important, that’s what the soul of humanity is seeking to work with.

In coming together, they are creating a … focal point through which the creative power and the creative possibility and spirit of humanity can flow.

It can only do so much. I don’t think it holds a lot of expectation for this one particular conference with this one group of leaders. They already have demonstrated that there are limits to what they can do or what they will attempt to do. But in coming together, they are creating a kind of grail, they’re creating a kind of focal point through which the creative power and the creative possibility and spirit of humanity can flow. It flows not just to them or even primarily to them; it flows to all of us. It flows to our children, it flows to our grandchildren, it flows to those souls waiting to be born, it flows into the reservoir of human potentiality that knows how to deal with this crisis and knows what it’s aiming to become. That is where that Light is received and held.

The spirit of humanity is using [the summit] as a focal point, as an opportunity to enliven and vivify the deep sacred potentialities within humanity that know what to do.

So, my subtle colleagues said, please, in your meditations or in your awareness, as you go through your day, think about what is happening at this global climate summit in Glasgow and understand that the spirit of humanity is using it as a focal point, as an opportunity to enliven and vivify the deep sacred potentialities within humanity that know what to do. I pass that on with the gratefulness of my colleagues, and my gratefulness, and I leave it in your hands to do with as you will.
