It is its own unique suffering when you have hurt the heart of one whose heart you would never want to hurt. You didn’t mean to. You would never want to. Only you were careless in your speech, and now you reap the hurt in your own heart. This hurt goes deeper than the hurt you sowed because you cannot undo it
All kinds of hurt have to be let go of. There is no blessing in them, except that you take heed the next time and find a way to express yourself without hurting any soul on Earth. The dictum to harm no other creature goes beyond physical injury.
Consider troubles like a spring frost. Spring always surmounts the frosts, and peonies do bloom. Spring is never daunted. There can only be mere interruptions to it. Spring always is confident of its triumph over winter. For spring, survival is not enough. It must be accompanied with the blossoming of lilies like trumpets that call out, "Spring has come."
We all have been of service to others in our life, whether if it was to our employer, family member, friend, even a stranger, or ourselves. There are times when we perform acts of kindness, a noble or good deed out of reluctance; we hold it over person's head. Most acts of service are carried out with a level of fear, obligation or selfishness with expectation. Example, you do a favor for someone, then a few weeks later you need something, you approach the person and ask the favor, they may say, "I'm sorry I'm unable too", then you say, "Remember when I did that favor you."
The process continues on as we prepare for the summer months of great change, manifestation and abundance, and, of course, the never-ending process of ascension continues on as well.
If we are to be ready to manifest and create the New World at the highest levels, we must first be the highest levels ourselves. This first half of 2006 has been all about preparing ourselves to be in this space. Although many of us “crossed over” into a higher dimension in December and most notably in January, we then had to “match” where we were at all levels. The ascension process will always continue, but its intensity is being felt much more during these first 6 months.
As a collective we believe wisdom comes from age and experience. This is only half true. Yes through experience, we develop a keen wisdom for matters in the world. This experience is developed through observation of others and self. Our senses aide in the wisdom developed. The senses guide us to experience different life sensations.
You and your life are not problems to be solved. You are not something to be cleaned up and made better, to be repaired as if you were broken. You are a flower ready to blossom. You are a treasure to be uncovered, sparkling gold and silver, gems beyond imagining. You are a song ready to be sung, a dance that only needs the right music. And the music is drifting across on the breeze right now.
Today, we continue in our Course in Creation, helping you to create a joyful and fulfilling life for the time you are here. And today, our focus is on joy. Simple joy, pure joy.
This week, your assignment is very simple. You are to learn to feel joy. You are to teach yourself that you are capable of filling yourself with joy no matter what is happening in your life. You are to learn that joy is something you create inside, not something which is imposed from outside by circumstances and other people. This week, learn that you are truly the creator of your life, and learn it by creating joy in every moment.
Turn in the direction of your closeness with Me. Your spirituality will rise and captivate you.
Take more notice of Me. Perhaps you run away from Me. In theory, you can evade Me, but it is not as if you really can, for I pursue you. I will have you enjoin yourself with Me. We will marry, beloveds. We have been betrothed since the beginning of time. You betrothed yourself to Me. You know I am your One and Only. You may dodge away from this thought, but you cannot escape it. When all is said and done, there is you and there is I, and that’s the magnitude of what is. On this you can rely.
