I see you grow right before My eyes. You may have had a hang-up or two. Life may seem to have been handed to you. You may focus on what you see in yourself as lacking. Better to believe Me, as I believe in the truth of you, Beloved.
There is an advantage in being innocent. There is advantage in finding out rather than being positive that you already know all the ins and outs of life, that you are sure you have life figured out and have the ability to evaluate it.
The force of love is a power to be reckoned with. Love is a power. It is a power for good. Who would want less than a power for good? Who would want to keep all the odds and ends of life that you may have kept to pour over and perhaps collect more of?
Refrain from expecting others to be what you want them to be. Maybe they once were but are not now. Let people be what they are when they are. There is nothing else for you to do. You don’t have say over other people. You realize that you don’t always have say over yourself. Give freedom to those around you. Give freedom to the world. You are living your life, and others must live theirs.
Make new dreams, beloveds, when your dreams capitalize on others. Don’t hold on to the old dreams that had their day. Let them go. They may have been true once, but that doesn’t mean they are now. It is in letting go that your dreams can be realized. Release some of your dreams like balloons so that they can come true. Only in freedom can your dreams come true.
You are not to let anything trouble you. What is the percentage in it? Stay away from the sentiment of trouble. The concept of trouble has ruled too many lives. The concept likes to hover over you. You think trouble is out to get you, and then you think you must ward it off. And a lifetime passes by.
Trouble is like rain. It rains. It stops. But you do not always have to carry an umbrella to ward off rain. And if you get a little wet, so be it. At least you enjoyed the sunshine before the rain. And now you can enjoy the sunshine after the rain. Do not live your life according to weather forecasts, beloved. Get your mind on another track. Set your mind in the direction you want it to go.
Prepare for the sunshine! Think about going to the beach.
When you feel darkness, you have been looking at the dark. Want to feel light? Then look at the light.
When you see beauty, go to it.
Life often seems to be something like this: You are playing cards. You receive four aces straight up! No matter how fine your hand is, you don’t get a guarantee that you will get four aces again tomorrow or ever again.
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.
If there were no attachment, there would not be suffering. If you
could take even death of beloved ones in your stride, where would
attachment live? Because of Human attachment, you think something
terrible has happened when a loved one dies. You mourn the whole
concept of death of the body, as if the existence of the body were
everything. I know that death of the body is big for you.
Sometimes great joy brings you great tears. Don’t mind tears. Welcome them. Sometimes your heart is so full and you are so unaccustomed to such fullness, that tears leak out the way ballast is thrown over to balance a boat. It is no crime to weep from joy. It is no crime to weep for any reason or no reason.
Honor tears. They have a merit. They are not something you are supposed to keep down. Let tears come to your heart’s content. Tears let you know that you are not made from stone. Tears signal that you are a vibrant live person who has feelings and sometimes feelings beyond the known. Tears will tell. Count on the tenderness of tears.
Sometimes you cry, and you know not why. Know that your feelings are shedding their skin, as it were. Be glad. Be glad you can cry. It would indeed be something to cry over if you could not cry. That would be occasion for sadness. Be glad for tears. Honor their presence. Bemoan their disappearance.
