Every leaf on every tree is for you. Every ray of the sun is for you. Every twirl of the Earth. Every breeze. Every joy. Every occasion on Earth is occasioned for you. The display of Earth in all its colors is here for you. Every day, Earth is for you, and each and every day, rain or shine, is here for you. Each day rushes to your side, ever ready to deliver itself to you, to be picked up by you as you would pick up apples rolling to your feet. You would pick rolling apples up with alacrity. Pick up today like that. It is rushing to you, beloveds, and it cannot wait. Today is here. Be ready to tour the world with it. Set your heart to the right dial. Turn on Go.
Ultimately, what you learn in life is to trust yourself more. Even in terms of the relative, you are far wiser and sincere than you give yourself credit for. You have love and wisdom beyond your years. You have it inborn.
You are far more than you or anyone thinks. Come into that realization.
The world may not have recognized you, and so you must recognize yourself. What a beautiful wise and wonderful Being you are. Say it, beloveds. Say: “I am a beautiful, wise and wonderful Being.”
“I am learning more about myself every day. I keep rising in my estimation. I begin to see what God hath wrought when He made me. He did not create potential. He gave me my potential realized. It is all here. Everything I want is here right now. Everything I want to be is here within me right now. What is realized is not potential. God gave me much more than potential.
Have I given you too many things to do or not to do? Of course, all
guidance I give boils down to love, so, in actually, there is only one
thing I ask of you, and that is to love yourself. You cannot love
others more than you love yourself. I speak of loving and not
attachment, beloveds. I speak of loving yourself and not holding
yourself for ransom, as it were.
Beloved, you think of another long ago friend of yours from many long years ago. Your heart aches to talk to once more to this friend. You have no way of knowing if this long ago friend is still alive.
Do you really think there is anyone I love more than you? If you think so, then you are also saying that I am capable of loving more and loving less. I cannot love less. I have one child, and I love My child. You see many children, and you categorize them, put them in piles, and put yourself in a pile by yourself, and perhaps feel forlorn or perhaps feel haughty. Beloveds, I can only love with all the love I have. I do not discriminate. Not at all. How could I? How could I possibly denounce one child of Mine. If the world?s perception were correct, and it were so that I have billions and trillions of offspring, which one child could I love less, and which one could I love more? I love. It is as simple as that. I love. I love this one, and I love that one. I love you.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Fault is too. You don't like to believe this because there is validity in the fault you see. Of course, there is, yet you are the one who has seen it and thought about it. Beloveds, let sleeping dogs lie. Let life be what it is. You are not meant to be the editor of the Universe. If you want to improve life in the world as it is, then, without question, find that which you like. This has been said so often, and is such a simple thought that you may pass right by it.
Life is not either/or. You do not have one choice or two. You have
many-petaled choices. When you were a child, you took a daisy, and you
said with each petal, "He loves me, he loves me not." You left out
other possibilities, that he likes you, that he makes you happy, that
you like him and you make him happy. Life is many-layered and not so
Leap for joy today! Why not? You have been quick to leap for trouble. Now be just as quick to leap for joy. Don't be indentured to joy, but be ready to anticipate it. You do not have to receive it every moment. You just have to be eager for it. Joy does not have to fall from trees, yet when apples of joy are ripe, be ready to catch them just the same.
