Steve Beckow: Lightworkers Are Society’s Trimtabs


By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia, May 30, 2015

Back in the early Seventies, Buckminster Fuller introduced the notion of conscious people as trimtabs. He said:

“Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary—the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab.

“It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab.” (1)

Lightworkers function as society’s trimtab in the matters of abundance, disclosure and Ascension. As SaLuSa said on May 29, 2015: “Lightworkers do have a voice and those seeking illumination will be drawn to those people who can guide them along a suitable pathway.” (2)

Our intention, our commitment, our determination is to build Nova Earth – and it’s what will see that Nova Earth gets built. We aren’t that large a group of people, when you consider the entire population of the Earth. We’re miniscule, but it doesn’t take that many people to cause a shift in public opinion.

I think the Maharishi once measured the percentage of the population it would require to shift public opinion (if such a thing can be measured) and the number was very small.  The fact that it is small is the underpinning for the notion of the hundredth monkey and ties into our developing knowledge of the collective consciousness.  When the shift in public opinion reaches a critical mass, society shifts its thought patterns.

Our trimtab function means that we lightworkers will work our biggest miracle or function by shaping and leading world opinion.

Opinion Shapers and Leaders

In early April 2015, Archangel Michael announced to me in a personal reading:

“It was very important to build community. That was the task at hand [until now]. Unity, community and understanding of the process of reliability; of sincerity, a connectedness that built the sense of Light Worker Community, of heart-to-heart to heart community.

“That has been achieved.

“But now, as way-shower, there has need to be someone, and many someone’s, at the head of the line saying, ‘This way.’” (3)

We are showing the way, which is precisely what the trimtab does.

The intention is not that we remain a small group but that everyone on the planet join the lightworker community, as he said on another occasion:

Archangel Michael: Does the conversation expand organically and naturally? Does the energy go out to the entire planet, those who want to hear and those who don’t want to hear? Yes, it does. But it begins with the lightworker community. That is what we have need of.

Steve Beckow:  And I suppose then more and more people join the lightworker community?

AAM:  Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (4)

We lightworkers came to lead opinion along divine or sacred lines. We came to direct people along the path laid down by the Divine Plan for this planet’s Ascension and the subsequent building of Nova Earth.

I met an eight-year-old girl the other day in Bellingham who was so modest and innocent, my heart melted. I’m sure she represents the next generation of lightworkers on the way.

We of this generation serve them by breaking through the underbrush, clearing the site, and raising the superstructure of workability. We’re pioneers in this new and workable way of being.

We haven’t even laid that new way of being out yet or thought anything through. Literally, the path, our path starts – and ends – at the trailing edge of our leading foot.

We have many other tasks to do as well, as ground crew. But leading public opinion is one of the most important ones.

It’s been hard for me to reconcile myself to the idea of shaping and leading public opinion. I’ve had to go through self-inspection for arrogance and power hunger.  I’ve had to examine my motives and face the prospect of giving up free time, cave time, and private time.

But I saw that I can’t avoid volunteering for this capacity. It’s implicit in the building of Nova Earth, a world that works for everyone.

It means an end to hiding. But it doesn’t mean deluging ourselves with work.  It requires moderation, balance, groundedness. It invites capabilities and faculties that we may not have developed as yet. Unless you’re Indiana Jones, it’s a leap of faith to jump out from the cliff before the bridge has formed.

For me, that’s the call of the lightworker, a little bit like the call of the wild – throwing ourselves off the metaphorical cliff and hoping we can metaphorically fly.

We’re all angels of change: that’s why we came. That’s the special work of this soul group.  We’re trimtabs. We’re a small group of people influencing the direction society goes in by small and subtle shifts, on the most majestic journey of transformation this planet has ever witnessed and participated in.
