This isn’t self-centeredness – not at all. This is awareness. You have choices. Awaken to your own merit. Your own merit goes far beyond vanity. You might as well recognize the truth of yourself. Age and such are not the truth of you by a long shot.
Do you think I take everything so seriously as you do? Do you think I take anything so seriously as you do? Do you think I am daunted by emotions and disappointments? Do you think I am daunted by death of the body? Do you think that if I spill milk, I cry?
If I am not daunted by spilt milk, must you be?
Today have the thought: "God has a sense of humor, and so do I."
Although I am the Mover, you don't just sit there. You also move. Although I am to be relied on, you also have to get up and rely on yourself. Although you are a watcher in life, you do not only watch. Although you may have to wait in life, you do not play a waiting game. Although you sit in the audience and watch the movie, you are also on the screen, moving around up there, performing actions, moving your arms, making discoveries.
Where you have clouds in your heart, invite the sunshine in. Where We exist, you and I – and We exist as One, and We are in Bright Light – darkness does not exist. Darkness is fantasy. In Truth, there is nothing to compare Light to.
There is always the sunshine. There never is a moment that the sun is not shining. It never closes its eyes. The world travels to the sun, and the sun blesses the world as it passes under its eye. The sun is focused, ever reverent on shining its golden light on everyone and everything.
And so I am like a sun to you. Irrespective of season, events, blemishes, I bless. I do not sort. I bless all alike. No one has any more of Me than you do. I give no more to anyone than I give to you, nor do I ever give anyone less. Never do I give more to you one day than I give to you the next. I give you everything every moment. I give non-stop, and I give My All to all.
You have a tendency to crave proof of love. You tend to see that yesterday you were loved by the one you love, and today you perceive that the love given you is less. It is not demonstrated as well. You long for the sweet words of yesterday. You feel that you must have it. Your longing for love may be insatiable.
I bequeathed you to the Universe, and now you bequeath yourself.
I gave a gift, and so it is given. I handed you over, and now you serve. What a blessing it is to serve. I serve you. And now you serve others. You serve others in service to Me, and so you serve. I gave you in service, beloveds. I gave My heart to the world. I gave it freely. I gave it in the form of you. I did not make conditions when I gave you to the world nor did I make concessions. There was nothing to concede. You might say that the need for you to give love is a condition, and that’s partly true in that love is a condition for your happiness. And yet, as I gave you life and presented you to the world, I also gave you the freedom of choice. You can love now, or you can love later. Whatever you do or not do, I do not hold it against you. I don’t hold anything against you, beloveds. I hold everything for you.
To thine own heart be true. Where does your heart leap to? And where does it fall down from? And, yet, do not jump to conclusions as to where your happiness lies. Give yourself breathing space. Find the level of your heart. Where does it like to be? If your heart were a bird, what tree does it like to sit on? What note does it like to sing? Deeper than deep, where does your heart's happiness lie?
