In this season of fall many of you, no matter how old you are, are going "back to school" and this time dear ones the school is self-exploration! It is the season of harvest. Look at your lives right now. They are the harvest of all the choices and beliefs you have planted in the past. Is your life what the harvest you want it to be? If not dear ones, take time to plan a new garden of eden for yourselves.
All of nature works in cooperation, dear ones, and so too the human race was designed to do the same. If everyone on your planet were to listen to their hearts, everyone would be cared for, fed, loved, and guided to interact with those of like mind and like heart. Even those in misery would find company for indeed there is solace and love even there.
Life is meant to be a dance of love and cooperation, dear ones, not a dance of adversity. Your Mother Earth, even with her rumblings and storms is not "out to get you" but rather she is simply stretching and releasing tensions. And when she does so, she inadvertently causes her children to come together and realize what is of the utmost importance, namely one another.
Dear ones, the more you connect with your own hearts, the more you connect with God, and the more connected you will feel with all of life. For you cannot possibly relate to others or the world around you if you are not relating honestly with yourself. Do you really know what you want? Or are you operating in response to all the "shoulds" you have been programmed with over the course of a lifetime.
So many times in my life my angels have reminded me to create my life from the inside out. Looking back I realize that I only feel lack when I fail to acknowledge my abundance. If I take time to admire my flowers, or the beautiful sky or the songs of the birds, I feel rich. After all, isn't that why we all want more money... to enjoy life! Why not enjoy it now.
Heaven exists, right here, right now upon your earth dear ones. It is not a faraway place. It is not a state of nirvana and meditation although some of you will find it that way. It is not a space reserved only for those who have 'earned' God's love or are 'worthy' of it, for indeed none of you have to earn God's love. It is given freely by its very nature. You are made of the very same. Worthiness is not an issue at all in the mind of God. Are the streams worthy of running into the rivers that run into the oceans, or isn't that part of their very design?
Life wants to flow through you dear ones. Life offers you a tantalizing buffet of adventures! Life wants to say "Here I am! Try me!" Taste! Look! Listen! Life is nothing more than a myriad of expressions of God's love waiting to be experienced. Life is not about survival. Life is about experiencing love in an infinite number of ways. Life is about knowing the various faces and aspects of God. Life is an adventure of discovering more about who you are each and every day.
Today we wish to speak to you on the gift of receiving. It is so easy for so many of you to give to one another and we celebrate your generosity. You feel so good when you give for so many reasons. However, while it is so easy for so many of you to give, many of you have a hard time receiving. And yet, it is in receiving, that you allow another to experience the gifts that giving brings.
You will all have "to do" lists left behind when you are done this lifetime, and so we encourage you, while on the path to your goals, to enjoy the journey. For every "to do" you once had, there is now a "done" and often a new "to do." It is not likely that you will never finish all your tasks or complete all your dreams upon the earth, for as soon as you achieve one you will find yourself dreaming up something new. This is the nature of life itself.
There is a tendency upon your planet earth to label and divide your activities and thoughts into what you consider to be "spiritual" and what you consider to be "mundane." Your mind decides something is "important" and therefore requires more attention than something "unimportant," and while these labels are human and we certainly do not judge them, we see things so very differently up here in the heavens. All your activities can be spiritual dear friends, or all can be mundane.
