Be attached to nothing. Be not attached to anything. Be not attached to trains running on time, your computer working... Anything that is manmade, you are not to be attached to. The sun will rise every day, but all your appliances and contrivances may not. They don't have to! What is it exactly that you think depends upon everything working as you expect it to?
Do you know by now that you -- every single one of you -- are the kings of life, and that you have been sent to Earth to make the beloved Planet Earth holy? You have come to add blessings and to take away woe. That is your instruction book. And if you do nothing but add blessings, you will have taken away woe.
You expect a lot from life at the same time as you limit it. Have a wide-open landscape or seascape in mind, not a narrow one. Something you desire does not have to come to you in a particular way. Perhaps you desire a red car. When a yellow one comes your way, better not to stamp your foot and spurn it.
Certainly, with matters of the heart, you may alight on a certain individual, and you say, “I want that one.” And you are petulant when that one has a dream different from yours, even opposed to yours. And so you may close yourself to other love that is on the horizon because you have a particular vision in mind. Do you see how this is a game you play with yourself? Dreams come true, beloveds, and yet you don’t want to bind yourself to certain outcomes. Have a picture in mind but not a photograph. Keep your heart open for love. If a specified love of your life does not come your way, let unspecified love enter.
No longer waste your energy on anger and its milder cousin, frustration. Don’t be put out by all the things you are put out by. One thing after another seems to bother you.
Every new street corner you come to is different from the one before. You love wide avenues and roads with terraces in the center, yet you are not aggrieved when streets present themselves otherwise. You don’t say: “Those streets. What’s the matter with them? Why aren’t they all beautiful the way I like them to be?”
But is this not what you do with people? You want them to be different from how they appear to you.
What miracles does today hold for you? What delightful surprises are in store for you? What manna from Heaven will you receive today? And what miracles divined for others will you be a part of today? Given the opportunity, what would you like to delight others with? What treat would you plan? What gift from Me would you give today?
