Have I given you too many things to do or not to do? Of course, all
guidance I give boils down to love, so, in actually, there is only one
thing I ask of you, and that is to love yourself. You cannot love
others more than you love yourself. I speak of loving and not
attachment, beloveds. I speak of loving yourself and not holding
yourself for ransom, as it were.
Do you know how sometimes a song enters your mind, and it will stay for as long as it wants to stay, and you cannot dislodge it? It may be a song from many years ago. Unbeknownst to you, it was dormant and yet vibrating within you until it started to sing itself out. How powerful are those songs that have entered your bloodstream and never left.
Your dream of dreams is about to come true. I am not speaking of your surface dreams. I am speaking of the deep-lying dreams within your soul. You may not even know what your real dreams are, beloveds, so immersed in the material world are you, yet you might as well know that something so amazingly wonderful is on its way to you, and you will know it when you see it. Look for it lightly.
Every relationship you have reveals an aspect of yourself. In every relationship, you bring yourself to the table. You crave love and peace in every relationship, and yet relationships fall short. You may not know what to do with them. You may not know how to make a relationship thrive. Sometimes it's a struggle, and you wonder what you have relationships for. When they cause pain, you wonder.
Rise above the daily inconveniences. Inconveniences are only inconveniences. Annoyances are only annoyances. Frustration is only frustration. Who says that everything has to be smooth for you at every moment?
Life is not either/or. You do not have one choice or two. You have
many-petaled choices. When you were a child, you took a daisy, and you
said with each petal, "He loves me, he loves me not." You left out
other possibilities, that he likes you, that he makes you happy, that
you like him and you make him happy. Life is many-layered and not so
This thing about love is that it is your destiny. It is your choice of destiny, yet, when you see through clear eyes, you have no choice. You know the difference between a nickel and a dime, so what can you do but choose the dime? You know what love is worth, and it is worth everything. There is nothing that compares to love. Nothing in High Heaven and nothing on Earth. Love is all there is, and love is mighty, not as a fortress but as a gateway.
You are here on Earth to lift the world. Focus a cut-above. Stop looking for difficulties and finding them. Climb higher and see better. See the horizons before you. See vaster. Perhaps a cure doesn't come from figuring out but by seeing anew.
