Have We Done Enough?
I grew up in a small farming town on the shores of Lake Erie in
western New York State. It's a quiet little town, pretty and peaceful.
I suppose that's part of what attracted so many Italian immigrant
families, including my own family.
One of my family's old neighbors and friends, Tony, was recently
featured in the town's weekly newspaper. Tony died many years ago, but
I still remember him clearly. He was a multi-talented and colorful
Tony was a self-taught artist. His landscape paintings were exhibited
in the Albright Knox Galleries in Buffalo, the Fine Arts Institute of
Pittsburgh, Cleveland's Museum of Art, and New York City's Museum of
Modern Art. In the 1930s Walt Disney Studios offered him a job, but he
didn't want to leave his beloved hometown.
As if that wasn't enough, Tony also had his own orchestra and was a
concert violinist. His performances were broadcast live on radio. He
was also an accomplished architect, carpenter, antique furniture
restorer, car mechanic, race car builder and driver.
He was truly a renaissance man.
Tony had a son, also named Tony, about my age. Young Tony and I were
close friends and I spent many happy hours in his home. Father Tony
was always so kind to us kids, and I loved being around him. He was
full of joy and enthusiasm. He loved life and that love was highly
After I read the newspaper article I was talking to a cousin I grew up
with and who also knew Tony. We were marveling at all his
accomplishments. Then she said to me "Have we done enough in our
Here's Chief Joseph.
"Have we done enough?" That's a question humans often torture
themselves with. The answer is implied in the question itself: "No, we
have not done enough!"
Your planet is going through some interesting challenging times right
now. You don't need us to remind you of that.
Many of you are feeling tired, confused, scared, depressed, wondering
what the future holds for you and your world.
You're constantly looking for what you can do to fix things.
First of all, nothing needs fixing. Some will disagree with us on
that. But you all individually and your Mother Earth are going through
a necessary transition. Painful though it feels on many fronts --
financial, personal, spiritual, in your relationships, etc. -- it is a
cleansing, a purification, if you will. One you've needed and have
been building up to for centuries.
Friends, this is good news! There's nothing to fear. There's nothing
What you need to "do" is to just "be."
Let's explain that a bit.
Part of this transition is each of you individually coming into
greater alignment, greater intimacy with, God -- or whatever you call
God. We prefer to think of it as your soul and your physical body
being "fused" together.
The process can certainly be uncomfortable, even painful. But trust
the process and you will move through it more easily and quickly.
You don't have to do anything to get through this. Just allow
yourselves to feel the energies. Allow God -- in a very literal sense
-- to come to earth. Allow the God you are to once again be part of
your physical beings.
We would urge you to take quiet time for yourselves, and do it
regularly. Spend that time breathing. As simple as it sounds,
conscious breathing is a powerful tool to help you move through these
times and to help you "anchor" God in your physical bodies.
Do whatever your bodies, your feelings guide you to do. We would urge
you to drink more pure water than you normally do -- this is a
powerful cleansing and healing tool, not only physically but also
The "bottom line," friends, is you do not have to do anything. At
least nothing extraordinary, as our friend Tony did in his lifetime.
Do whatever you are guided to do. But do not force yourselves into
action just because you feel the desperate need to do something,
anything. That is totally counterproductive.
You will make it through this transition. At the other end of this
seemingly dark tunnel great joy and light await you. God is coming to
earth once again. You are God.
Just enjoy be-ing who you are -- God.
Since 1992, John Cali has been communicating with a non-physical
entity called Joseph. In one of his many physical lifetimes, this spirit
was incarnated as the legendary Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe
in what is now the state of Oregon in the northwestern USA. These
messages are a blend of information from Joseph, other spirits in the
"Joseph group," and John.
