There is nothing insignificant in the Universe. Every person has a purpose, every thought has an effect, every thing in the Universe has a unique reason for being at a certain place at a specific moment in time. In the grand context of life, everything has meaning and value. So if you consider yourself to be a small or even insignificant part of the grand game of life, reconsider this opinion. You are just as valuable and meaningful as every other thing in the Universe. Because you, like everything else, has purpose that you fulfill every day, with everything that you do.
Every situation has multiple aspects that give a different meaning to it. You can see these different aspects according to your level of spiritual growth and understanding and, more importantly, according to your willingness to look at everyone and everything in your life with unconditional love. When you look at all situations with love you remove judgment and this allows you to have a much larger perspective on everything. Love allows you to know, to see into the heart of everything and to understand the truth. Surrender to love to understand the secrets of the universe.
Whatever learning you are blessed with, whatever you have achieved in this lifetime is your gift. All of the lessons, heartaches, disappointments and challenges that you have overcome are what has brought you to the place where you can begin to experience the joys of your connection with Spirit, to know the peace and blessings that achieving one-ness can accomplish. This is but a step on your path and not the final destination because you have come to know so that you can help others. All of those who are experiencing the Shift have a sacred task, to share their knowledge with others.
What are your options in life? Can you imagine yourself being everything that you want to be, living each moment in the way you want to live it and experiencing joy in all that you do? Can you see these as options for yourself or do they only exist in your daydreams? Your options include not only all of the possibilities that you can imagine at this moment, but also a limitless number of options that you have not yet begun to perceive.
You have glimpses of these other options in your dreams, when you wish or when you have a strong desire to do something else. They come to you when you focus on what you want and can do, instead of what you cannot do, what has passed you by or what seems to be impossible. The impossible only appears that way because you see it from the limitations of your mind. Each time you move into a higher vibration, by releasing fear and trusting in the Universe, you also move into a different range of options for your reality.
Each of you is wise beyond your knowing and you have all of the knowledge of the Universe at your disposal. This knowledge does not exist in books and cannot be learned in schools. It is the wisdom that comes through connecting with your spiritual self, a deep understanding of the connections between the spiritual and material worlds and the wisdom that you have brought with you at this time to walk the path that you have chosen and to do the work that you have come here to do. You do not need masters to teach you this, you simply need to awaken to that which you already know.
Love creates an energy that outlasts any other; in fact, love never dies. The love that you share with others, in any of the many forms that love can take, lives long past the end of the relationship. Even your casual daily encounters with people provide you with many opportunities to show your unconditional love for others. Each time you treat someone with love you bless them with a gift that will outlast the briefest of encounters. So the person that needs your help with a small task, the one you smile at or say hello to, each of these people is on your path to give you an opportunity to spread love. And as you do that you give them and yourself the gift of love.
Humanity's greatest challenge is to live in compassion, to see themselves and others as they are and to accept every person's divinity and spiritual wholeness as the truth. By living in compassion you see others without judgment or expectations, so no one can disappoint or hurt you. You become your fullest potential because there is nothing to hold you back. When each person does this, the world knows peace because there is no reason for war. Everyone has what they need, so there is no lack. This is all possible when humanity lives in compassion.
It is the nature of humans to suffer and you have suffered for eons, through war, hatred, disease, and many atrocities that are waged on the basis of gender, culture, age or race. There are many examples of suffering on the Earth today, from countries that are ravaged by war, to hunger and abuse in your own neighborhoods. Suffering can be experienced globally and individually. Each person who allows suffering into their lives is responsible for both its presence and its resolution. Those whose nations are at war have relinquished their power to others and have chosen to live their lives in a state of powerlessness. Suffering, as with any aspect of life, is a choice, whose presence in your life is determined by your free will-you choose to suffer, just as you choose to remove suffering from your reality.
While the Universe is active in the present moment that does not always mean that the results you seek will be available to you in the immediate future. Sometimes you must wait, have faith and trust that what you have asked for will come to you or that a lesson will be completed when all of its learning has been absorbed.
Although it is the part of you that can often be the most easily ignored, your Spirit is your source of strength, inspiration and joy. When all else in the material world fails you, when all else has abandoned you, your spirit is always available to you. It is in those times when you lose faith in the material that you can turn to the spirit for guidance. But this means that you only turn toward Spirit when you are at the lowest points in your life. Your relationship with Spirit is most effective when you create a peaceful spirit, one that is in balance with the material. And when you create a peaceful spirit you are able to walk with the guidance of Spirit every day of your life.
