June, July, and August is going to be a hot bed of transformation, and I am not talking about the thermometer either. This is the biggest shift to hit the consciousness of humanity to date, and I know you are feeling it.
Today I have an assignment for you. Today I wish for you to build your life upon a foundation of gratitude. I wish for you to awaken each morning in the coming week and let your very first thought be about gratitude.
Today we will continue our Course in Creation, the foundation for building a life of fulfillment and peace. And you are the one to build it. You have that power.
Today our topic is romantic love. I wish to relieve you of some of the pressure which your society has put upon you and guide you instead to a more relaxed view of life and the role of romantic love within it.
First, let us take a look at some of the expectations which your society has laid upon you. You are expected to be educated, attractive, slender and wealthy, full of a youthful vigor no matter what your age. And if you have not managed to achieve all this, then there is something wrong with you; you have failed in some essential way.
Humor is one of many emotional release mechanisms. It is to help counter all the situations and ill emotions bringing discomfort. Humor revels the lightheartedness of all situations and personality. This lightheartedness engages those in your presence and opens up a comfortably. Humor is to aide in the healing process of letting go of the ill emotions and past situations.

Yes, the energy is building. New energy is arriving still, and creating feelings of stress. Even if you aren't having any stress in your life, these energies can create that pushing and pressure feeling all on their own. They are designed to move things up and out. And these kinds of energies are also the precursors for natural disasters.
Physically, they can manifest as pressure headaches, pressure in the ears, neck and upper back stiffness, heart palpitations, a feeling of hyperventilating, sleeplessness even though you may be very tired, and even a need to eat often.
Emotionally, they can manifest as edginess, snappiness, shortness of temper and tolerance, inability to focus and sit still, and even bewilderment.
Just think of “pressure cooker” and you will understand the corresponding symptoms.
There is a difference between desiring and having to have. It is a huge difference. It is the difference between ripples on the lake and white water rapids on the river. Desire carries peace with it. Having to have your desires filled carries demand. Demand is what wars are made of. Demand and desire are certainly not the same. You can be strong in your desires without being adamant. Yes, there is a balance here. Desire deeply, and then let your desires float across the ocean of life.
You, as you are right now, and as your life is right now, are completely responsible for the direction your life will take. From this moment forward, from the place you now stand. There will be obstacles, of course.
Forgiveness stems from love. You can be apologetic; by saying you're sorry, without feeling love. To forgive takes courage, because it is a deeper emotion since it's tied to love. To forgive someone when they not know what they do, takes a great deal of love and openness. When forgiveness has taken place, your heart becomes more open and the heart can heal with time.
