Interpretations: “Standard bearings are inspected and cleansed.” – The term standard refers to a level or quality of something, whether in reference to production or the finished product. A standard of living refers to the quality of one’s living conditions. A standard way of boiling water for tea is to place a kettle on the stove. The term bearing refers to a persons way of standing or the relation or relevance of one thing to another. Often the term bearing is used to describe what affect one thing has on another. If a person has lost their bearings it this would mean they have lost their sense of direction, they have lost consciousness as to where their present position is in relation to another location. Bearings refers to relationships, which within the mind are known as meanings or definitions. When definitions change, relationships of meaning are altered, which affects perception.
In general, we can interpret the phrase standard bearings to mean the accepted or commonplace relationships of things that are metaphysical in nature. By this I mean, the relationship of distance from one place to another can be seen visually. But the directional line is subjective meaning our desire to move in one direction or another cannot be seen physically only held in mind as an idea—although the facing of our body may reveal what is within our mind. Also the bearing one thing has on another, especially regarding personal relationships is metaphysical, such as love, respect, or disdain. The second portion of this statement discussing inspection and cleansing implies that these metaphysical relationships are being observed and analyzed (inspected), and errors or inconsistencies are addressed or cleansed. For example, if one has a relationship with their spouse that is mildly co-dependent, wherein one person relies on the other for their emotional support, then inspecting and cleansing would mean, first recognizing the truth of what is at play, and then taking actions to restore balance. This might involve a discussion with the spouse that kindly shares what was observed and implores them to go within and seek to understand as to why co-dependency exists. But in a more personal sense, the standard bearings each individual has with the world are those beliefs and worldviews maintained in the mind that affect perception and the resulting actions taken. Consider that if we think the world is a hard and cruel place, where people are unkind and adversarial, our desires and behaviors reflect this. We may not want to leave our house or fear social situations. But if one goes within and inspects these bearings or definitions cleansing the fear associated with them, then a different perception is formed, which in turn, affects desires and life goals. This statement can be interpreted to mean that relationships are being redefined, which requires consciousness in order to guide us in a way that is in alignment with personal ideals. Redefinition can take place subconsciously, but the resulting changes may not be beneficial. Socially, when as a people we collectively redefine our knowledge and beliefs to be in harmony with truth, this can be considered inspection or cleansing, which will have long-term beneficial effects for all involved, after a correction process has been completed.
“Night missions are completed.” – The phrase night mission suggests an undertaking that needs to be done in secret, or under the cover of darkness (night). What these missions are is not clearly defined here, but given the personal nature of the preceding statement in this update, this statement can be interpreted to mean that when we go within to do the inner work and redefine or harmonize our mental space (knowledge or beliefs), this is a night mission. Consider that inner changes or work, a mission, cannot be directly observed by others. When we go within to analyze or inspect our internal relationships (which we could also call knowledge) it all takes place under cover. Only the offspring of such work can be seen. A writer may muse on a story or piece of writing by sitting quietly thinking to themselves, and to an observer, they may not have any bearing (knowledge) on what is taking place. But when the writer produces a piece of writing, then the work is revealed. And of course, this extends to social night missions as well, group undertakings that are happening in secret, such as those who are working to restore justice, order, and balance to this troubled world. This statement can be interpreted to mean that hidden or secretive missions are completed. The end result of these undertakings will begin to be made manifest through those who participated. One who goes within to forgive and let go of fear is now more kind and loving with others, especially those who are not kind and loving. A musical group that practices their songs can play them well when performing. And as a people, those of us who are doing the inner work, a night mission, will become agents of light so long as our standard bearings were inspected and cleansed properly.
“Messianics are released.” – The term messianic refers to a passion of some kind and also refers to the idea of a savior. The term usually invokes positive feelings, but consider that in order for one to feel good about a messiah, they first must feel disempowered enough to want to be saved. Given this, this statement can be interpreted to mean that the consciousness of messianics is being released, which is another way of saying, the consciousness of disempowerment and slavery is no longer present. Given the preceding statements in this update, discussing inner work or cleansing, the natural result would be a sense of increased empowerment and autonomy. We each have the potential to become masters of our house, to reign as supreme rulers of our own consciousness as the creator is the supreme ruler of the creation. But the kind of rulership being discussed here is not might is right, it’s wisdom and truth rule the day. By this I mean, when we have gone within and released our co-dependency on falseness then we restore balance within and without, becoming sovereign or self-mastered. One who is sovereign does not need saving, they are their own savior.
“Fluorescents ignite the show.” – The term fluorescents refer to a substance that receives short wavelength energy or light and then emits longer wave frequencies as a result. The principle at work is that the object in question acts as a receptor for higher vibrational energy than what is emitted. Within a context of consciousness, when wisdom from on high or the universe is received by an individual, they are uplifted or they evolve accordingly. When one lacks wisdom their vibrational quality is lesser than one who possesses wisdom. Wisdom is the expression of truth. Given the preceding statements in this update, which discussed inner work that resulted in self-mastery and sovereignty, this statement is the final result of such an inspection and cleansing process. When we become conscious of our own lack of growth or attainment this can motivate us to humble ourselves and go within to seek knowledge. Once complete, we no longer feel lack or disempowered (releasing messianics) and now act in harmony with the more balanced and self-mastered consciousness that was developed. The term enlightened refers to one who has done this process, usually to a high degree or level. This statement can be interpreted to mean that those who are doing this inner work, those who are bravely seeking to know their own inadequacies, incompleteness, and personal setbacks (shadow work) are being empowered and restored as a result. And the resulting change in being causes a radiance that is expressed outwardly, fluorescents ignite the show. The term show implies that others are watching, which means those who see these changes can be inspired to do the same.
PS – In December 2014, when Julian and I were discussing the idea of sharing these updates on the blog, he encouraged me to do more than just share the raw post. He said that we could offer our insights into what they could mean and in doing so create a venue for deep discussion and consciousness exploration. There were many times I wasn’t sure if others found any value in these interpretations, but Julian and others continued to urge me on in this venture. This is just one example of the countless ways he helped me in my life path, for which I am eternally grateful. I want to dedicate these interpretations to him and his memory. I will love you always Julian, and know, that your zeal for creativity and loving service of others continues on.
