This is a series of lessons that is intended to cover many of the aspects of Ascension.  These lessons will be taught by female Ascended Masters of various Orders.  Although all of these Masters are balanced in the male and female aspects of their personalities, these individuals have chosen to manifest female bodies during this time in the continuum of All That Is. Please join us for our weekly lessons.

The following lesson was given on November 21, 2007 by Sehaji Master Lady Kata Daki:

I am Kata Daki and today I would like to speak to you about the trials and tribulations suffered by all who choose to cling to patterns of the past.

One of the most difficult things for humans to do, it seems, is to change with ease and grace.  Most of you seem to only accept changes in your life when it is absolutely necessary and even then many of you do it kicking and screaming like a spoiled child.

Now I know this may seem harsh to many of you, but I believe it is time to speak bluntly and as honestly as I can from my point of view, about the situations I see going on in your lives.

Your lives could be so much happier and easier if you would choose to just relax and accept changes that come into your lives, rather than continue to cling onto something, be it objects, patterning of thoughts, words and deeds or even jobs or people when it is obvious to all but you that the time has come to move on.

It is nice to have a past.  It is nice to remember pleasant things from your past.  It is handy to remember a way to repair something or cook something or drive or fly something, but as everyone grows, be it physically or spiritually, one must discard the old that no longer serves you and accept with grace and gratitude the new.

Now, I am not saying that everything old is no longer of use or that everything new is good and will be of service to you in your next steps of life, however, there does come a time in everyone's life when it seems to become obvious to everyone, but the main person involved, that it is time for a change.

My reason for picking this subject today is that I would like to encourage you, all of you, to look at your life with a slightly more critical or discerning eye and see if any of my words are appropriate to your life.

In other words, WAKE UP!  Look around at your life and see if there is anything that is no longer working for your greater benefit.

For too long the people of American and Europe especially have focused on having more, more, more and still more.  Everyone seems to be trying to keep up with the Jones, Smiths and the Rockefellers.  And has it made you happier?  I ask you. 

Are you truly happier with that bigger house, newer car, bigger television set and smaller cell phone?  Sure, it's fun for about a day and a half when everyone is admiring your new purchase but what about a month later when the bill comes or six months later when it is totally "old hat" and no longer excites you?

Let me tell you a story.  Our friend Dhyana took a six week bicycle tour in Europe almost twenty years ago and learned a lot about what she truly needed to survive.

She took only her bicycle and 35 pounds of clothing, a tent, a sleeping bag and a few other things she felt necessary.  She had been told to take no more than 25 pounds plus her bike, but she took more, convinced that she would need it because she was going to be gone for so long.

About three days into bicycling on her trip, she realized that 35 pounds of "stuff" was way too much for her to handle comfortably for the next six weeks, so she spent a small fortune mailing it half way around the world, back to Hawaii.

Then it still took her two to three weeks to relax enough to really start enjoying her vacation.  In the beginning she kept thinking that there were things she needed to do.  She worried so much that it took a lot of the joy out of her vacation. 

Finally, she started really appreciating the simple life that was not only total freedom from her work life back home, because no one knew exactly where she would be from day to day, but also because she had found out by that time that she had everything she truly needed to live comfortably on that little bicycle.  She will tell you today that the last three to four weeks of that vacation were some of the happiest days she has ever spent "on the road".

My point, of course, is that everyone except the most impoverished probably have many things in their life that make it more comfortable, true, but are not truly necessary.

There is an old saying that people don't own things, things own people.  That is because when you own much, it seems that you are always having to take care of them, insure them, worry if someone will steal them from you, and so on and so on.

There may come a time in the future when it will become desirable for most of you to pool your resources and share, so that all might live more comfortably and with greater ease.  And, when that time comes, if it comes, I hope you will remember Dhyana's joy in finding freedom from the responsibility of "things".  It is a lesson she has never forgotten.

With those thoughts, I will leave you for now. 

I am Kata Daki and I am grateful that you have shared this time with me.

This may be shared freely as long as it remains in its entirety
and proper credit is given.  Thank you.

Dhyana Markley
