I once asked the angels how to calm the anxiety I was feeling at the time. Their answer made me laugh. "Remind yourself you're not in control of the world! A meteorite could come through your roof any minute!"
It is not Armageddon. You are not facing the end of the world. There is never a time on earth when you are being punished, nor is earth "mad" at you. The fires, floods, earthquakes, solar flares, and other natural phenomena do not signify the "end times" but rather an opportunity for new beginnings.
The opportunities for love are there in each moment. Even in unthinkably difficult situations, the Source is whispering, always trying to awaken you to its Love and kinder reality. Even in the disasters we are walking with you and guiding you.
Don't apologize, dear ones, for being who you really are. Don't worry about whom you please or whether or not you are a "success" in the eyes of the world. Don't change yourself to "fit in" with what others expect. Don't let guilt rob you of your natural joy.
We know that so many of you are deeply disturbed by the violence you witness in the world. Certainly, we would wish for each and every one of you a kind and loving experience in your lives, and peace in your hearts even when the world is not loving.
Take a moment right now. Imagine for a moment that you have a shell around your body. Imagine this shell is made of any beliefs or circumstances that have convinced you that you are unloved or unworthy of love.
Never in your existence is there ever a lesson that does not match your vibration. You know this and yet so many of you ask us the same question. "Why do bad things happen to good people. I'm a nice person. Why do bad things happen to me?"
Never in your life are you without purpose. While there is great value in "seeking your purpose" know that your real purpose here on earth is to see love, be love, and express the love that sources you in each breath.
