Each moment exists for its time and then moves on into the past. And each moment that is, was the future a moment before, as time flows and your life passes, this precious life, this one life that you are living at the moment.
And so, in this flow of time and life, two things are true: one is that nothing is ever lost and you have chance after chance after chance, as this life flows into another and as you are lifted up into the great oneness in which there is no time passing, simply being. The other thing that is true at the same time is that this moment, this one right here, right now, is precious and unique, and there will never again, in this life or another to come, be another moment exactly like this one, where you and those around you are this exact manifestation of personality and body, where the sun and stars are exactly like this, where that leaf on that tree drifts down through the air in exactly this way.
You will sometimes meet someone you believe is a soul mate; you feel the connection on many levels, perhaps instantly. And as you get to know each other more, you begin to feel the connection deepen and you feel that you must have an arrangement with this person that predated this lifetime.
Do not assume, however, that this soul connection necessarily means that you are meant to be happily together for this lifetime. It may be that you are meant to be friends and allies, helping each other out. It may be that you are going to help each other in ways that even involve conflict and separation, but with an end result that is beneficial to you. It may be that you are going to learn some lesson from each other and then go your separate ways.
As you cleanse yourself for the coming year, I would ask you to pay attention to an emotional response that may be so common to you, that you do not even realize it is a choice you are making.
I would wish for you that you not have hurt feelings, that emotional response when someone you care about does not give you the attention that you feel you deserve, when you feel slighted, because someone is overly absorbed in their own cares and activities and forgets to shine the light on you.
Today we continue our Course in Creation. We began with you, then with your place in the world. And now I wish to have you combine these two and learn to utilize your very special intuitive or psychic skills, whichever term you prefer, in order to bring the spiritual world and the physical world a bit closer together.
Everyone is intuitive. Everyone is born with these skills. You might compare intuition to music. Everyone has some appreciation for music and some amount of musical skill, if it is in singing, piano, dance, guitar, drums or the marimba. Some talents are very naturally strong and others can be developed.
And there are, of course, those child prodigies, who begin picking tunes out on the piano at the age of two or three. And there are also those who were discouraged very early and believe they have far less talent than they truly possess.
I choose to be one with all that is, in deep peace. I choose to move with the flow, to enjoy the feel of the water, to breathe the water and let it direct my life. I choose to be one with the stream and to live in complete harmony with all that is in my world.
This morning we have a message from a power animal that I know well. I first met him years ago when I was doing power animal retrievals, then again more recently in my Power Animal Adventures. He is an enormous sperm whale known as The Ancient One; it is always so wonderful to hear from him. And is now our way, Quado has added a few words at the end of his message.
You and your life are not problems to be solved. You are not something to be cleaned up and made better, to be repaired as if you were broken. You are a flower ready to blossom. You are a treasure to be uncovered, sparkling gold and silver, gems beyond imagining. You are a song ready to be sung, a dance that only needs the right music. And the music is drifting across on the breeze right now.
Let the day dawn in joy. Bring only beauty into your heart. Let the thoughts of the past be gentle. Let the thoughts of the future be bright. Allow your mind to become a garden of delights, where only the beautiful and bright, the joyous and wondrous, are allowed in to play.
Today would be such an excellent day for cleaning out the cobwebs of your mind, all of those old thoughts and opinions hiding in the corners that need to be brought out into the light of day and exposed for what they are: stale, dusty, and no longer of use.
