My dear friends, we love you so very much. As many of you approach your Thanksgiving Holiday we give thanks for you. You are the angels upon the earth - brave souls who have descended into the darkness to create more light both within your own hearts, and with the hearts of those upon your planet.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. We ask you this week to stop evaluating your lives as if you could possibly be anything other than a success in God's eyes. Success dear ones, is not measured by what you achieve, how many souls you assist, the money you make, the stuff you have around you, or even how many people love and adore you but rather the degree to which you are able to love God, love self, and then love others.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Understand your earth is in a time of great growth and change. Like many of you she is demanding kinder treatment and shaking and shuddering in resistance to lack of the very same. As a result many of you are feeling a little anxious, sad, or even a sense of abandonment.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Never fear, for God is near! We speak somewhat humorously because, dear ones, God is not outside you, God is the source and creator of all that is. God flows through the entire universe with the Spirit of Love. Never in your eternal souls are you ever separate from God. There is never a time when God does not hear your prayers.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you continue on your journey through life, we ask you to be kind to yourselves. You are human beings, in a school called planet earth and you are not expected to be perfect according to standards you set for yourselves. We love you no matter what. God loves you no matter what. Of course, we ask you to strive to be loving, strive to increase your faith, and to work very diligently to be kind to others, however dear ones, we ask you to start with yourselves.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Your journey dear ones, here upon the planet earth, is an education - a dance between dark and light where ultimately you will see only one reality and that reality is God's love. The dark spaces dear ones are those places where you forget God's love. The light is truth.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Remember that a grateful heart is an abundant heart. A grateful heart seeks out and acknowledges the riches that life has to offer. A grateful heart does not feel impoverished, unacknowledged, or unappreciated because a grateful heart realizes that God has gifted you with a magnificent and glorious classroom called Earth in which to evolve your understanding and appreciation of love.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Understand that many of you are in a time of rebirthing. You are tired of old patterns of struggle, and old ways of being and you are seeking freedom of soul. You want freedom from the illusions that hold you bound in struggle. You want freedom from the illusions that you would have to do anything to earn God's love or the love of another.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. God does not want you to struggle, dear ones, but you struggle when you resist your own hearts. You struggle when you feel you must do something and do not own the reasons why you are doing it. You struggle when you don't do what you truly want to do. Your life becomes miraculously easier when you learn to surrender to the truth of your heart, rather than the dictates of your mind.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. In your heart of hearts, you want to love. All your angers, all your sadness, all your pain comes from the illusions that you are not loved. It is true that true love is a precious and rare ability of so very few on the planet earth and yet when you have those moments when you touch God by extending your love to another, or by receiving truly and deeply the love another offers, you transcend the illusions and see the reality in which we, the angels, live all the time.
