One of the final things Kate said to me before she died was "when are people going to let each other be". This I feel is the crux of everything going on with humanity in the world.
If I look at my own life, my anger and frustration comes from this very issue. A common thing people will say to me - spiritual or non-spiritual - when I bring all this stuff up and sound like I am complaining or passing the blame onto others is, what is stopping you doing what you want to do? These people are talking from within the system's boundaries and their understanding is only from within that limited sphere. Its only when they themselves step out of those boundaries that they see and begin to understand what I've been trying to point out for years.
All my life there have been key moments when people around me have "surrounded" me in an attempt to block or stop me moving in the direction I wish to. In many cases, its been outwith my control. An example is after Kate died in hospital in Budapest. I was there with her parents. They had called for her brother to come over to support them and then called for my dad to come over to support me, without asking me in advance. I'm not wishing to blame them and my point is not to have a go at them, but to demonstrate a real life example of what I'm talking about. I intended to deal with that situation myself. Pack up our belongings, deal with the landlord and move on. I didn't know how but it was my problem, I took responsibility for the situation I was in, even though I could see many interferences and obstacles led us into that very situation in the first place. I was quite clear-headed about what I must do even though I didn't know how. My intention was to remain in Europe because I still 100% believed in what we were attempting and still do. Kate's death was a huge thing and unexpected but it didn't change the overall thing we had been attempting. I had no intentions of coming back to Edinburgh because I knew what would be waiting and I knew it would be a much more limited situation to go back into.
So from that move, the call to ask my dad to come over from Kate's parents, it changed the course of things. Now people could say you're lucky he did come over and if he hadn't what would have happened to you. In return I say, these people see things in too much limitation. I had already witnessed many "miracles" during our time in Europe. Incredible synchronicities and coincidences. So I knew that something can come out of nothing. I'd been in that position many times and I trusted life. That interference changed the course of events and though I still managed to get to Berlin, which was my intention, I had shifted timelines you could say to an alternate version of Berlin. More simply, it put me on the backfoot basically, so I could have started off in Berlin in a clear state of mind and who knows where that would take me but instead I wasn't able to get off to the right start and I feel that led to me ending up back in Edinburgh.
Later when I considered this, I realised the other times in my life when there was a moment to go off and do my own thing and how people would come in and not allow that move towards more freedom. It often happened in a subtle way so was not always easy to detect at the time, even though there may be irritation or frustration felt. Often the people involved would be quite forceful about making their presence felt and steering things in a certain direction.
This all needs to change and its what Kate was referring to when she said we must let each other be. That means, so long as you're not interfering or intentionally hurting or getting in the way of another's natural path and rights we should all be free to live how we wish. Nobody should attempt to control another and if everybody focussed on their own life they would naturally know what is right to do. The vast majority of people would behave peacefully and in harmony if allowed to be and most of the tensions come from trying to force people to do what YOU want them to do. We need to be free.
