My dear friends, we love you so very much.
Your lives on earth are so short compared to the duration of your souls. If you could see them as we do you would not waste a single moment in self judgment or criticism. You would know yourselves as the beautiful souls that you truly are, simply having an experience and an education upon your earth.
Take heart when you do not feel you meet your own standards and remember that in God's eyes you are already perfect. There are simply choices that make you feel more like the loving beings that you truly are and other choices that are made when you forget. Always, no matter what, strive to love yourselves and realize you are all doing your very best in each and every moment. So much time is wasted upon your earth in self-judgment and self-deprecation. It serves no purpose.
If you could acknowledge and love yourselves at all times, each and every one of you would be so much happier! When you make what you perceive to be a mistake, ask yourself, "What would I say to my best friend if he or she did the same?" Would you say, "That was stupid! How could you? What were you thinking! You should have known better?!!" or wouldn't you rather say, "You did your best. You did what you could. You did what you knew at the time." Give yourselves the same courtesy, for you are all truly doing your best.
Instead of judging yourself, say, "What did I learn? What would I do differently next time?" And then strive to learn, strive to make more loving, more discerning choices next time you are faced with a similar opportunity. For God only gives you opportunities to love. And choosing love creates opportunities that feel more loving to you as human beings.
In God's eyes you are already perfect. In our eyes you are courageous souls having a human experience. We would never think to judge or criticize a single one of you. Instead we simply help you move forward in greater love. Even when you can't seem to love yourselves, dear ones, perhaps you can sit, breathe, receive, and allow your angels to love you, wipe away your tears, and help you remember once again who you truly are.
God bless you! We love you so very much.
